    From Morgan Rice, #1 Bestselling author of THE SORCERER’S RING, comes a riveting new fantasy series.
    
    ONLY THE WORTHY (The Way of Steel—Book 1) tells the epic coming of age story of Royce, 17, a peasant farmer who senses, with his special fighting skills, that he is different from all the other boys in his village. There resides within him a power he does not understand, and a hidden destiny he is afraid to face.
    
    On the day he is to be wed to his one true love, Genevieve, she is stolen away from him. Royce chooses to risk it all to confront the nobles who took her and to try to save his love.  When he fails, he is sentenced to the infamous Red Isle, a barren island of warriors known for turning boys into men. Banished from his homeland, Royce must face trials beyond which he can imagine as he is taught to survive the notorious Pits—the kingdom’s brutal bloodsport. Genevieve, meanwhile, desperate for Royce’s return, is forced to navigate the cruel and conniving world of aristocracy as she finds herself immersed in a world she despises.
    
    Yet as Royce’s powers become stronger and as he learns there is a secret behind the mysterious lineage of his father, he comes to realize that his destiny may be greater than he thought. He begins to wonder at the most terrifying question of all: who is he?
    
    ONLY THE WORTHY weaves an epic tale of friends and lovers, of knights and honor, of betrayal, destiny and love. A tale of valor, it draws us into a fantasy world we will fall in love with, and appeals to all ages and genders. 
    
    Also available as a free download is Morgan Rice’s A QUEST OF HEROES, book #1 in the 17 book fantasy series THE SORCERER’S RING, a #1 bestseller with over 1,000 five star reviews.

    What reviewers are saying:  
     
    “The action sequences in this book were amazing. The ending will leave you reeling. This story is incredible and Jennifer Quintenz is an amazingly talented author... This book is an absolute MUST read! You have strong characters, teenagers who are amazing in their normality in a paranormal life, and a father who would die for his adopted daughter, and an adopted daughter who is “supposed” to be evil but is the most caring teen I have seen in years. This book is not only a successful sequel but an incredible addition to any library. I can honestly admit that if I had book 3 in my hands when it was 2am and I’d finished this one I would have grabbed it up and continued this saga.” – Condygurl of the “Recent Reads” book blog  
     
    “I am a fan of the genre, and really enjoyed the first book in the trilogy. This one beats it - Quintenz neatly sidesteps the lull problem of middle-of-trilogy books, creating a page-turning web of self-contained plots while also continuing to flesh out the mythology of the series and set up the conflict in the concluding book. I read "Incubus" extremely rapidly, dying to find out what happened next, and propelled smoothly along by the polished, vivid prose. I'm going to start reading the third part immediately; Quintenz just keeps getting better.” – Daniel Maidman, review on Amazon.com  
     
    Incubus (Daughters of Lilith: Book 2)  
     
    Braedyn Murphy used to think nothing important ever happened in her sleepy town of Puerto Escondido. But that was before she learned she was a descendent of Lilith, the mother of all demons. Now Braedyn fights to protect humanity from the Lilitu - the beautiful, souls-stealing daughters of Lilith.  
     
    As she fights the Lilitu, Braedyn must also fight her growing love for her boyfriend Lucas - because even a simple kiss could end his life. Their only ray of hope is an angel’s offer to make Braedyn human, but it’s an offer she can’t accept until the world is safe from the Lilitu.  
     
    Braedyn knows she’s a key player in this ancient war... but she’s not ready to believe she just might be humanity’s best hope of surviving the final battle for Earth.  
     
    Praise for "Thrall" (Daughters of Lilith: Book 1)  
     
    "Before you even start this review, put down anything you are doing and go read Thrall. It's AMAZING! BREATHTAKING! Engaging and smart, Thrall leaves you speechless!"  
    - Savannah, Books With Bite  
     
    "The writing style is so smooth, yet gripping. Add some good characters, well-paced story and you have something that I like. No, not like. Love... No surprise that “Thrall” gets full five stars and the highest recommendations I can give."  
    - Linda, The Fantasy Librarian  
     
    "How do I even begin to put all the crazy, gushy, ramblings in my brain about this book onto paper?!? Where to even begin?....This book is a MUST read!"

    Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s novel Diving Into The Wreck spawned a universe so vast that one novel can’t contain it.  The Spires of Denon doesn’t involve Boss or her crew.  Instead, this powerful short novel follows Meklos Verr, hired to guard an archeological dig near the mysterious Spires of Denon.  There Verr encounters the prickly Gabrielle Reese who heads the dig, and he meets some cave divers who aren’t quite what they seem.  Verr knows that someone wants to harm the dig, but he isn’t sure if the attack will come from outside the tall mountain range or from the group of archeologists within.  Verr must figure out the threat before it destroys him, his crew, and the beautiful Spires of Denon. 
     “... a story of exploration of an artifact on an alien world, a bit reminiscent of the sort of story that Jack McDevitt writes.” —Eyrie.org 
    “...Denon is literally luminescent in its depiction.” —Suite101.com 
    “The Spires makes for a very good read.” —SFRevue 
     “Compellingly human and technically absorbing, the suspense builds to fevered intensity, culminating in an explosive yet plausible conclusion.”
