Summary

The world as we know it is gone. 
There are no more countries, states, or cities.  No more traditional government... 
only survivors who have created a new world made up of small colonies. 
 
It has been thirteen years since the 
last World War and the village of Lia Fail sits peacefully above the 
Hollywood Reservoir in the Santa Monica Mountains.  The settlement is 
making ready to host the fall Gathering. A time to remember the past as 
well as discover new loves, old friends, family, and fun, but just as the 
festivities begin, the people in Lia Fail begin to experience strange goings 
on they can't explain. Unseen forces attack several guests and friends 
begin to distrust friends.  When they receive news of a horrific 
massacre, they realize they must face an impending dark evil that 
threatens to destroy the tranquil village.  

 
 
Alia Stark, the queen of Lia Fail, must face this malevolent 
force alongside her oldest and dearest friends.  The fate of her 
people, the lives of her children and freedom itself rests in her hands. 
Will she have the courage to do what must be done... and at what price? 
  
This is the beginning of a journey that will change all of their 
lives forever. 
 
The Gathering: Book One of the Lia Fail Chronicles is 
the first in a new Paranormal, Fantasy, and Adventure Series.

    The bestselling and highly acclaimed Soul Savers series, with over 1 million downloads, continues with Book 6, Unholy Torment. 
     
    Alexis, still young and inexperienced, must lead the Angels' army to war. But Lucas, leader of evil on Earth, trumps every step she takes as he orchestrates the beginnings of World War III. He single-handedly turns the humans against the Amadis, and when Alexis tops every country's list of Most Wanted Terrorists, she and her team are forced to go underground to fight this war. 
     
    With the help of her people and a group of unexpected allies, Alexis must prevent the Daemoni from taking over humanity, but the Four Horsemen have apparently arrived, bringing the world into the apocalypse. If Lucas is truly the Antichrist, as many claim, then they're all a part of an age-old prophecy of divine providence. But Alexis and her team will do everything they can to stop Lucas and change the world's destiny, even if it means they die trying.

    “THE SORCERER’S RING has all the ingredients for an instant success: plots, counterplots, mystery, valiant knights, and blossoming relationships replete with broken hearts, deception and betrayal. It will keep you entertained for hours, and will satisfy all ages. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers.”--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto MattosAN OATH OF BROTHERS is Book #14 in the Bestselling series THE SORCERER'S RING, which begins with A QUEST OF HEROES (book #1)!  In AN OATH OF BROTHERS, Thorgrin and his brothers emerge from the land of the dead, more driven than ever to find Guwayne, and set sail across a hostile sea, leading them to places beyond their wildest dreams. As they come ever-closer to finding Guwayne, they also encounter obstacles unlike ever before, obstacles which will test them to their very limits, which will call on all their training and force them to stand together as one, as brothers. Darius stands up to the Empire, boldly amassing an army as he frees one slave village after the next. Facing off against fortified cities, against an army a thousand times his size, he summons all of his instincts and courage, determined to survive, determined to win, to strive for freedom at any cost, even at the cost of his life.
    Gwendolyn, with no other choice, leads her people into the Great Waste, deeper into the Empire than anyone has ever journeyed, on a quest to find the legendary Second Ring—the last hope for the survival of her people, and the last hope for Darius. Yet along the way she will encounter horrific monsters, worse landscapes, and an insurrection from amidst her own people that even she may not be able to stop. Erec and Alistair sail for the Empire to save their people, and along the way stop at hidden islands, determined to raise an army—even if it means dealing with mercenaries of questionable repute. Godfrey finds himself deep inside the city of Volusia and deep in trouble as his plan goes from bad to worse. Imprisoned, set to be executed, finally, even he can see no way out. Volusia forges a pact with the darkest of sorcerers, and driven to even greater heights, she continues her ascent, conquering all who stand in her way. More powerful than ever, she will take her war all the way to the steps of the Empire Capital—until she is up against the entire Empire army, an army that dwarfs even her own, setting the stage for an epic battle. Will Thorgrin find Guwayne? Will Gwendolyn and her people survive? Will Godfrey escape? Will Erec and Alistair reach the Empire? Will Volusia become the next Empress? Will Darius lead his people to victory? With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, AN OATH OF BROTHERS is an epic tale of friends and lovers, of rivals and suitors, of knights and dragons, of intrigues and political machinations, of coming of age, of broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is a tale of honor and courage, of fate and destiny, of sorcery. It is a fantasy that brings us into a world we will never forget, and which will appeal to all ages and genders. “A spirited fantasy that weaves elements of mystery and intrigue into its story line…. For those seeking meaty fantasy adventures, the protagonists, devices, and action provide a vigorous set of encounters that focus well on Thor's evolution from a dreamy child to a young adult facing impossible odds for survival….Only the beginning of what promises to be an epic young adult series.” Midwest Book Review (D. Donovan, eBook Reviewer)

    A black storm is spreading across the Wheel of the Infinite. Every night the Voices of the Ancestors--the Wheel's constructors and caretakers--brush the darkness away and repair the damage with brightly colored sands and potent magic. Each morning the storm reappears, bigger and darker than before, unraveling the beautiful and orderly patterns.With chaos in the wind, a woman with a shadowy past has returned to Duvalpore. A murderer and traitor--an exile disgraced, hated, and feared, and haunted by her own guilty conscience--Maskelle has been summoned back to help put the world right. Once she was the most enigmatic of the Voices, until cursed by her own actions. Now, in the company of Rian--a skilled and dangerously alluring swordsman--she must confront dread enemies old and new, and a cold, stalking malevolence unlike any she has ever encountered. For if Maskelle cannot unearth the cause of the Wheel's accelerating disintegration--if she cannot free herself from the ghosts of the past and focus on the catastrophe to come--the world will plunge headlong into the terrifying abyss toward which it is recklessly hurtling. And all that is, ever was, and will be will end.
