Break The Ice by Kevin P Gardner

Sam wants nothing more in life than to help his mom beat the cancer that sent her to the hospital for the umpteenth time that month. Everybody they go to for help say it’s useless to try. Experts, doctors, specialists. Nothing but hopelessness. He never expected the cure to come from the commanding officer of an alien army. The catch? One simple mission.

When a millennia-long, interplanetary war lands on Earth, nobody would have expected the planet’s fate to fall into the hands of Sam Adams. He isn’t exactly what his fellow students call talented. Shy, weird, and tall, maybe. Cue two alien races breaking through to Earth. One wants peace, the other only cares for power – and both claim to be the good guys. Who can you choose to trust but the ones helping save your mom?

The Enchanted Shield (Tales of a Dragon Book 2) by Geoffrey Angapa

“Dragon, we’ve got to think of a description—an amazing description—for The Enchanted Shield’s Amazon page. That’s pretty hard work, if you ask me, but I’m sure we’ll put something together.”“Indeed, writing a description is harder than writing the book itself. Have you thought of anything as yet, lad?”“Well, Dragon, I have, but it still needs more work, and seems rather incomplete to me. Goes like this: The Enchanted Shield is the sequel to The Quest of the Golden Apple, and once again follows the adventure of Geoffrey and the Dragon.”“No, that won’t do at all. Certainly needs more work, but I suppose it’s all right for a start.”“All right for a start? Can you think of a better, Dragon?”“Sure I can. Let me think. On the other hand, we can’t just give away the whole plot: that would spoil the book. I think it’s better if the reader didn’t know all that much about the tale before reading it.”“Could be, Dragon. Could be.”“So let’s ask readers to read our tale, and we hope that it delights them much.”“Very well, Dragon! I’ll write that up! I knew you’d think of something!”

Isle of Bones (We Witches Three Book 1) by Starla Silver

We Witches Three, Book One: Isle of Bones. A Demon Isle Witches Clean Read Cut. Sweet and Romantic Supernatural Fun…

It’s tough being a Howard Witch. Especially when a host of devious supernatural creatures are determined to wreak havoc on your daily life making it impossible to have one. And all over a magical power source lost long ago, which every villainous supernatural being wants to find, and control.

Something the Howard Witches will not permit as long as they’re around to stop them. But there are only three witches left from a once thriving family. Charlie, the eldest, a werewolf, and self-elected leader of the siblings. Michael, the middle child, an empath and death reader who’d rather leave the job to someone else. And Melinda, the youngest, who’s currently living under self-inflicted house arrest after her magical inheritance kicked in- the gift of prophetic dreams of people about to die- which she blames herself for not understanding and therefore, she’s the reason her parents are dead.

The one upside to her imprisonment, spending countless hours with vampire, William Wakefield. A family friend and protector for almost two-hundred years. He’s refined on the surface, the monster lurking cautiously underneath. His emerald eyes are something to get lost in, his icy fortitude hardening him to the world. But to Melinda, he’s a best friend and confidant.

The vampire is also the star of many a light night fantasy, and any other girl would enjoy the nightly thrill of a vampire crush invading her dreams. But not Melinda as her dreams have a tendency to come true. Although typically, they don’t include the handsome vampire she’s crushing on but rather horrifying visions of people about to die.

But she cannot stay under self-inflicted house arrest forever. And if her brothers or William get their choice in the matter, Melinda will be out of the house partying with her friends, giving her affections to a human, not a vampire, and digging into her role as a witch.

A role Charlie lives for and one Michael would rather live without. Nevertheless, when duty calls, usually from the local sheriff needing help with some tourist who’s gotten themselves into trouble, love and life screech to a stop, and duty takes over.

Such is the case when the sheriff needs help with an unsolved murder investigation; one she fears has a supernatural cause. To assist her in the case, she calls upon the skills of The Howard Witches.

However, what they learn might be more than any of them can deal with, or accept. Worse yet, they fear what this discovery will do to Melinda as it returns them all to the core of her self-imprisonment.

Back to the lives, she could not save…
