Shadow Souls (The Mal’Ak Cycle Book 1) by Christopher A. Nooner

Dear Ms. Wright:

I am writing in reference to the journal we discussed. The one I discovered hidden among my Great Uncle’s belongings.
After delving into its contents and knowing your interest in the orphic and esoteric, I knew you would be intrigued by what I discovered.
I have transcribed a portion of the journal, but the contents being what they are, will await your response before I part with the greater portion. It contains ideas that are better left alone if you have not the time nor inclination to pursue the full endeavor of delving into this particular mystery.
That being said here is the portion I wish for you to see:

September 15, 1986

I saw the man again to-day. Seven Crow he is called. It is astounding to me that he looks virtually the same as he did on that occasion forty years ago when we met. I know this to be true because the events surrounding that meeting have been indelibly imprinted upon my mind. I don’t know by what means he has kept his youth, but his strong native features and work hardened physique are undimmed by the passing years. It is surely the work of the native shamanism practiced upon him that has kept him so.
I do not know if he saw me, but I endeavored to conceal myself from his knowledge and attention. I feel as though he did not see me, for had he I am sure he would not have let me live. It was imperative for me to know that he was still confined in that hellish prison; whatever confinement means for one such as he.
It worries me that all of our years of patience and preparation will be undermined should Keezie somehow cross paths with this man. He has wrecked our past stratagem irreparably and perpetrated much damage to our cause.
There are things I long to tell the girl, but know that it is better she find them out for herself. The clues are there if she is clever enough to follow them. Her life will be hard once the forces in play pull her into their maelstrom. I hope I have prepared her well enough as she is the only one that can hope to control the device. Either that or she will die.
I will write more as events unfold…

Urban Fantasy with a Native American Twist.

After spending forty years in prison Eli Seven Crow is weak and lacking the power of his former self. When he is herded headlong into a maelstrom designed to steal his people’s most ancient secrets, his life and the one woman in two hundred years that he might be able to love he must find a way to save himself, or all life will be consumed by the otherworldly evil that his family has worked to defeat since the First People set foot on Mother Earth.

Tore Vargr finds his world turned upside down when he is forced to choose between the love of his life and the life he loves. He chooses Annike, disrespects his brother, Erik, and sets off a chain of events that shape his life in a way he could never have imagined.

Outlawed from his clan, Tore embraces his new responsibilities of father and protector as he carves out a new life in a human world. But a jealous brother has a long memory and Erik is nothing if not patient when it comes to exacting revenge. When Tore’s past catches up with his present, he has to learn to pull from an inner strength.

There is a battle of two wolves inside us all.
One is evil: it is anger, envy, greed, arrogance, jealousy, resentment, lies.
The other is good: it is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, truth.
The wolf that wins?
The one you feed.

Curse by Heather Hildenbrand

***This is a re-release of the original YA title. The content and ending has changed to reflect a New Adult Paranormal Romance novel.***

“Hildenbrand has smoothed over some areas, added some steam, and she’s indeed changed the entire ending to create a more fluid conclusion. And I loved every minute of it. If you haven’t read this novel yet, or even if you have, this updated re-release is a must read. Five stars!” –A Book Vacation

The Cherokee believe when a person dies, their soul is reborn. Life is repeated. An endless cycle of lessons to be learned, love to be found, destiny to be fulfilled. For the past six months, in every flower, every bird, I’ve imagined my parents, relieved of their human forms.

Now, after five months at the Skye View Wellness Center, it was summer. A time for parties and friends, but that’s the last thing I want to do. So when my best friend Erin convinces me to attend a bonfire at Eagle Point, I can’t handle the crowd full of sympathetic stares or drunken class clowns who would use my tragedy as a way into my heart – or my pants. The solitude of the woods offers an escape, until I stumble upon a boy, unconscious and bleeding, his pockets stuffed not with identification but with poetry illustrating the beauty of dying. I’ve seen enough death. I will not leave this boy’s side.

Even after he wakes, when the only thing he can remember are visions of events that haven’t happened yet…

Into the Americas (A novel based on a true story) by Lance Morcan and James Morcan

INTO THE AMERICAS (A novel based on a true story) is a gritty, real-life adventure based on one of history’s greatest survival stories. It was inspired by the diary entries of young English blacksmith John Jewitt during his time aboard the brigantine The Boston and also during his sojourn at Nootka Sound, on North America’s western seaboard, from 1802 to 1805.

Written by father-and-son writing team Lance & James Morcan (authors of The World Duology and The Orphan Trilogy), INTO THE AMERICAS is a tale of two vastly different cultures – Indigenous North American and European civilization – colliding head on. It is also a Romeo and Juliet story set in the wilderness.

Nineteen year-old blacksmith John Jewitt is one of only two survivors after his crewmates clash with the fierce Mowachaht tribe in the Pacific Northwest. A life of slavery awaits John and his fellow survivor, a belligerent American sailmaker, in a village ruled by the iron fist of Maquina, the all-powerful chief. Desperate to taste freedom again, they make several doomed escape attempts over mountains and sea. Only their value to the tribe and John’s relationship with Maquina prevents their captors from killing them.

As the seasons pass, John ‘goes Indian’ after falling in love with Eu-stochee, a beautiful maiden. This further alienates him from his fellow captive whose defiance leads to violent consequences. In the bloodshed that follows, John discovers another side to himself – a side he never knew existed and a side he detests. His desire to be reunited with the family and friends he left behind returns even stronger than before.

The stakes rise when John learns Eu-stochee is pregnant. When a final opportunity to escape arises, he must choose between returning to civilization or staying with Eu-stochee and their newborn son.

INTO THE AMERICAS has been adapted to a feature film screenplay and is in early development with Morcan Motion Pictures.
