Spotlight on God Of War by Ian Thompson

Ian Thompson was born in Liverpool, England, but has lived most of his life in a small town in Cheshire. He pursued a career in textiles, including laboratory testing and quality control. Give him some fibres from a carpet, item of clothing or curtain, plus a microscope and some chemicals, and he’ll quickly tell you all about them!

Throughout his life, Ian has loved good tales - whether in the form of novels and short stories, TV shows, movies, comics or video games. He likes fast-paced adventures, strong and unusual characters, gritty action and twists he wasn't expecting. Being taken away into the realm of someone's imagination has always appealed to him and has driven him to create realms of his own.

His debut novel, PARADISE EXHUMED, was released in February 2015 – a murderous whodunit thriller, set in modern-day Britain, with a pair of investigative reporters hunting a brutal and seemingly unstoppable killer. PARADISE EXHUMED is the first novel of the Ray Hammett Thriller series.

For his second novel, Ian released the first part of a war-torn action fantasy: ERA OF DARKNESS – VOLUME I : THE APOCALYPSE BEGINS.  This has been followed by three Short Tales From The Era Of Darkness: BLOODFURY & FEAR, OUT OF THE LIGHT and THE FATE OF LUMINAR. A spin-off series of Era Of Darkness Novellas began with SURVIVAL I: SLAUGHTER AT GHASTAR.

Ian’s third novel is a dark horror tale. GOD OF WAR is a story of cause and effect, in which events two thousand years ago have terrible repercussions today. In Ancient Britain, during the Roman Occupation, an ambitious man seeks to create ‘something special’ for Nero’s gladiatorial arenas. In modern-day Britain, a group of cavers discover the results of Roman endeavors... and find themselves hunted by a monstrosity that kills both to feed and to satiate its sadistic desires.

Future projects include the conclusion of ERA OF DARKNESS, VOLUME II: EXTINCTION, and a range of Horror Short Tales.

GOD OF WAR


Horror of the Past. Terror of Today.
Roman greed and ambition created something almost two millennia ago.

That creation still lives – starving, lusting for blood, eager to inflict suffering and carnage...

During the Roman Occupation of Britain, Gaius Pertinax embarks on a quest to provide “something special” for Nero’s gladiatorial arenas. The ever-worsening consequences of his actions will threaten his life, his sanity and even his soul...

A group of modern-day cavers discover the results of Gaius Pertinax’s ancient endeavours. They are trapped deep underground... Running out of food, supplies and power for their lights... Hunted by a behemoth worse than their darkest nightmares: a gigantic creature that kills both to feed and to satiate its sadistic desires...

Is there an escape from this subterranean hell? Can the God Of War ever be stopped..?

My Review

God of War is a well-written, descriptive and enthralling page-turner, that's not for the faint-hearted. The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next and who would survive (or not).
The characters, both ancient and modern, were fleshed out and believable. I can't say I liked all the characters, but then they weren't all supposed to be likable.
A great book my a new-to-me author - I will be adding more books from Ian Thompson to my to-read list.
I received an ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

Fight for the Fae 

The Mirrored Prophecy 2

Chapter One (Sneak Peek) 



~Lina~


Earlier that day…

She will lose a love, gain a love, bear love and sacrifice for love. What does that mean? The Seer’s words ring through my mind. My grandmother arranged a meeting with Epan, the Highest Druid Priest and one of his Seers, Yasmin, to discuss my future that she has foretold. A lot has been going on in the last few weeks.
It’s not every day that you learn that your fate is part of a mirrored prophecy that will determine the fate of the world. Your first child will play a part in either destroying the world or saving it. That’s a lot for anyone to take in, but I have no choice but to accept my fate. I refuse to believe that I will play a part of destroying the human realm. Earth is as much my home as Faery is. Half of my childhood was spent here. My mother, Loredana Văduva, was a human Witch who died when I was fifteen years old in a Demon attack. Both sides of the family made sure that my brother Keegan and I spent time with my mother’s side of the family. My father Vamir Waldmar never denied my Witch side even though he is a full Fae. He is the Prince of the Light Fae to be exact, the future heir to the throne.
The marriage between my parents was arranged to create a treaty between the Witches and the Fae. Both sides have honored this agreement since my parents exchanged their nuptials. In the past two years, supernaturals have gone missing and the Witches and Fae have been working together. Recently, they have teamed up with the Shifters and the Vampires. We were able to trace the disappearances to the current leader of the Underworld and King of the Demons, Melomouzor. Melomouzor was exiled to the Underworld over a millennium ago because he was trying to develop a super Demon and take over the human realm.
Ten supernaturals, known as the Ancients, played a part in banishing him to the Underworld as a way to prevent him from conquering the human realm. He is on a mission to complete what he started and he needs my blood to help him cross over to the human realm. Any other day I would tell him to fuck himself, but he’s found a way to start bringing destruction to Earth. He’s had help bringing his Demons to the realm and kidnapping supernaturals.
We don’t know if the victims are still alive. We have no clue except that he must have been experimenting on the supernaturals and Demons. There was a large Demon attack where he sent his new enhanced Demons. These Demons were stronger, faster and we could tell that they had been enhanced with supernatural traits. We fought the Demons hard but most escaped. One of the Demons was able to capture my brother Keegan and took him to the Underworld. I want my brother back. There is no way in hell that I will rest until my brother is back from the Underworld, even if I have to sacrifice myself.
I leave the meeting that my grandmother arranged with Epan and Yasmin, stating that I am tired and want to rest before our other meeting that is scheduled in a few hours. I talk Colin into going back to check on his pack and the Legion’s progress with the Demons. Tonight’s meeting will be all supernatural leaders getting together to plan a way to defend the human realm against the new breed of Demons and keeping Melomouzor in the Underworld.
I have a plan. My amulet that hangs around my neck warms at the plan that I came up with. I can’t tell anyone my plan; if I do they will try to talk me out of it. I sneak into my room locking the door behind me. There is someone that I have to talk to and I need to go to sleep to do this. Since I have the power of the Fae, I should be able to dream walk to reach him. Before gaining these powers I didn’t know I had, I had never dream walked. Once learning the depths of my powers, I was sent to Faery to train to learn how to use them before having to make an urgent return to the human realm.
I should be able to dream walk without any problems. Having all the powers and accessing them should come easy for me. I just need to use them and not think so much. I have no choice. It will be up to me to save Keegan and the realm. I lay across my bed trying to get comfortable. This will only work if I fall asleep. I relax my breathing to slow deep breaths. My body finally relaxes and I doze off to sleep.

My counselor.
He makes me feel things I never thought possible.

Mostly, that consists of bonding with family and friends or going on romantic trips with her awesome husband (who, thankfully, puts up with her hermit-like daily routine).

Jean Joachim

Jean
I've been making up stories for as long as I can remember. When other kids wanted to be doctors, teachers or firemen, I wanted to be a writer.
As soon as I could read, I began devouring books. I'd read anything I could get my hands on, but Louisa May Alcott's Little Women and Nancy Drew mysteries were early favorites.
In school, term papers were my favorite homework. While others bemoaned the amount of work involved, I jumped in, burying myself in research and writing the document with care.
Still fiction was my first love. After college and a degree in English, I fell into the world of advertising. After many years in corporate America, I went my own way. Working and raising two kids took all my energy and creativity. But when the youngest went off to school, all the stories ideas in my head came to life. Mac Caldwell and Callie Richards landed in my head and refused to leave. So I told their story. What started as one book has become six. Now I greet my characters every morning at six and jump back into their story, enjoying every minute. I'm blessed to be able to work at something I love and share my space with my husband as well as my beloved pug, Homer. More than 26 books later, I'm still up at the crack of dawn, crafting the tales of the people who live in my head.

Stone Cold by Karina Kantas - Character Interview

Stone Cold by Karina Kantas - available on Amazon

YA supernatural thriller.


Billy has been a target of bullying through her years of schooling. Exams are over, but stress leads her to thoughts of suicide. It's her counselor that suggests she volunteers to assist in an archaeological dig in Scotland.

A secluded hostel. The residents start dropping like flies. Billy knows who the murderer is. Shane knows he's next to die.


***

Hi Billy, I'm glad you could join me today.
Before we dive into the questions, could you tell me a little about yourself.
Hi I'm Belinda. I've never liked that name so call me Billy please. I'm nearly 17. 
Umm... I Iike music and films, especially movies from the eighties like The Navigator, Flash Dance and Poltergeist. I love those. 


You were bullied a lot a school, how did that make you feel?
How do you think it made me feel? Worthless, hated, depressed, and angry, very angry. 
You know when you've been bullied from one school to a next you get to the point where you don't care anymore. You don't care about them or about yourself. 
It's when you've gotten that low that you really need to speak to someone. 


What is it like living with your dad? Do you miss your mum or anything about living with her?
 Not really, my mum wasn't much of a mother to me. Real selfish woman. I thought if I lived with my dad and he bought me nice things, that my mum couldn't buy, that I would be treated differently. 
That wasn't the case. I'd been labeled a tramp and a slag (God knows why) and so these labels followed me. It didn't matter that I was wearing high fashion and my hair style was on trend. I was still smelly tramp Belinda. 


What impression do you make on people when they first meet you and do you think their opinions change after they've known you for a while?
I'm pretty defensive now. I look after me and no one else. That can offend people. 
But you see I never did anything to warrant the punishment, violence and mental cruelty that I went through. I was a quiet, polite girl. I studied hard... well, at least through my first two schools. 
How do you pick yourself up after that? You can't. So you stop caring or giving a shit. 
You've heard of Karma, right? Well, they are going to get theirs. 


What was it like working on the archaeology excavation? Did you enjoy it?
Well, you know what happened. I've been told I can't talk about that. 
But from what I do remember. Archaeology is cool, a little boring - the cleaning part. But pretty exciting when you do find something. 
I've always liked history. I think I was the only one who wanted to see the church in the village. I love stuff like that. I may go back there someday and sit in the graveyard for a while... just to contemplate.


You spent a lot of time with Shane, what was he like and what drew you to him?
He just seemed really friendly and open. We clicked straight away. Yeah, okay, I thought he was cute, well hot then. 


What about the rest of the group, did you get on with them all?
They seemed nice enough. I wasn't really around them long enough to decide if they were nice people or not. 


You found something while you were digging, can you describe it? Do you still have it?
I... Well... - oh, yeah I found an arrowhead. The professor said it belonged to the settlement.


You experienced some 'lost time' while you were in Scotland, what did you think was happening?
Billy is not allowed to talk about this. You have been warned! 


How did you cope when the murders started? Were you scared? Did you ever think you might be next?
I don't really remember much, the professor said I'd been working too hard and the detective said I had a fever or something. I remember them carrying out a body from the Kitchen and someone screaming. Shane told me the rest. 
They were bad people They got what they deserved - or so I heard. 


Has Shane been in touch with you? Do you think he'll write or call? Would you like him to?
No. I tried to call, but the phone has been disconnected. 
It is okay. I do know where he lives and Billy can visit anytime. 


What do you want to do now? Do you have any plans for your future?
Well, the professor said I was very good at my job and I could sense things. I'm not sure what he meant. But I intend to do some research while I am studying culinary classes at night school. 


Thank you very much, Billy, it's been interesting talking to you. Before you go is there anything else you would like to add?
No one should put up with any form of abuse whether it is bullying, sexual, or mental abuse. 
You have a right to be heard. You have a voice so use it. Call this number if you ever need to talk to someone.

The Mirrored Prophecy by Ariel Marie

Power of the Fae



The first book in The Mirrored Prophecy series is a well-written and somewhat steamy read!

 Fae, Lycans, Witches and Vampires unite to battle Demons in this action-packed story, which is full of suspense and danger.

 It's highly descriptive and the attention to detail lets you 'see' the places and situations clearly.

 The background on the different species is interesting and informative, and the characters have strong personalities.

 The book is written from the points-of-view of a few individuals and brings different perspectives to the storyline.


Synopsis:

The Ancients spoke of a Mirrored Prophecy that would determine the future. One version of the prophecy spoke of a small female of mixed heritage giving birth to a child that will save mankind. The other side of the prophecy spoke of the female’s child being the demise of the world.

The Princess of the Light Fae, Arlina Waldmar, may be small but she is deadly. She is a member of the elite Guardians of the Fae. She has been given the assignment of going to the human realm to investigate the vanishing supernaturals.

Colin MacKenzie, Alpha wolf, has determined that finding a mate is not in his future. His people are vanishing. He will need to lead his Legion, defenders of werewolves to find them. His wolf has recognized a certain dark haired Faery Princess to be his mate, but he refuses to claim her.

There is an evil set on destroying the Human and Faery realms. Colin and Arlina must work together to defeat this evil. His thoughts are constantly on Arlina. Arlina knows there is no fighting the attraction between them. Can she convince him to give them a chance before it’s too late?


Fight for the Fae



I enjoyed the second book in the series as much as I did the first.

It picks up the story where Power of the Fae ended, the Fae, Lycans, Witches and Vampires are still battling Demons to save the realms.

The writing continues in the same vein, with the vivid visuals, the suspense and the steamy scenes.

The characters strengths and depths are enhanced by the multiple viewpoints in this great follow up.

I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.



Synopsis:


Arlina, Guardian of Faery, has sworn to protect all of those who consider the human and Faery realms home. She agrees to go to the Underworld and surrender herself to the Demon King. Discovering the missing supernaturals and his plan for them, she must stop the Demon King at all cost.

The Demon King’s banishment has been broken. His horde of creatures from the Underworld has been released onto the human realm, annihilating everything in their path. Once he conquers the entire human realm, Faery will be next. The power he harnesses from Faery will make him next to indestructible.

Colin has made a promise to go after Arlina. He refuses to let his mate go, but devastating news about her makes its way from the Underworld, tearing his world apart while his past comes back to haunt him.

Vampires, Shifters, Witches and the Fae must stand together in order to fight against the Demon King. Their belief in Arlina must not waiver. Their very likelihood depends on her powers and the destiny that she chooses. The Mirrored Prophecy has now been set in motion but Arlina refuses to roll over and let fate decide her future.
