“Firethorn has many moving parts that synchronize together with the beautiful precision of an expensive Rolex watch!”
– Don Brown, author of Navy Justice series
“My heart hammered against my chest with every plot twist. The danger and the romance set the stage for Ronie Kendig’s Digitalis. A writer to watch!”
“Liparulo plunges deep into the pages of scripture to find intriguing what-if’s and stunning revelations—all woven into a tale that is both skin-tinglingly supernatural and thought-provokingly real. Packed with high-tech gadgetry, action and heart . . . Read this novel! Seriously!”

Frank Peretti has done it again. Illusion is a story of love and life, loss and restoration, full of twists and mystery.
Summary — “Dane and Mandy, a popular magic act for forty years, are tragically separated by a car wreck that claims Mandy’s life—or so everyone thinks. Even as Dane mourns and tries to rebuild his life without her, Mandy, supposedly dead, awakes in the present as the nineteen-year-old she was in 1970. Distraught and disoriented in what to her is the future, she is confined to a mental ward until she discovers a magical ability to pass invisibly through time and space to escape. Alone in a strange world, she uses her mysterious powers to eke out a living, performing magic on the streets and in a quaint coffee shop.
Hoping to discover an exciting new talent, Dane ventures into the coffee shop and is transfixed by the magic he sees, illusions that even he, a seasoned professional, cannot explain. But more than anything, he is emotionally devastated by this teenager who has never met him, doesn’t know him, is certainly not in love with him, but is in every respect identical to the young beauty he first met and married some forty years earlier.
They begin a furtive relationship as mentor and protégée, but even as Dane tries to sort out who she really is and she tries to understand why she is drawn to him, they are watched by secretive interests who not only possess the answers to Mandy’s powers and misplacement in time but also the roguish ability to decide what will become of her.” [as seen on Frank Peretti’s Blog]

Author WENDY ALEC is writing a new epic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Brothers. We are excited to introduce the first 3 books in this new series; come check them out! The story traces the journey of Archangel brothers Michael, Gabriel and Lucifer as they move from the inception of time and place in Heaven and through Lucifer’s fall and banishment. The consequences on the brothers impacts three worlds; heaven, hell and earth. You can anticipate many twists and turns as a war unfolds for the race of men. “The tale is chilling . . . the consequences inconceivable” (ChroniclesProject).
“The Skin Map”, a Bright Empires Novel, by Stephen R. Lawhead is a hold-your-breath beginning to a new series. This novel mixes ancient history, time travel, alternate realities, mystery, physics, and fantasy, to create a story so compelling that I find myself recommending it to any who will listen.
The unlikely Kit Livingstone finds himself in the center of a life threatening race to find the Skin Map; a map of symbols tattooed onto the abdomen of a brave explorer. These symbols hold the mystery of ley line travel, pathways to other worlds, and not merely British legend. As all good epic stories include, evil plots to destroy good and unexpected twists and turns maintain a heart-pounding pace. The only disappointment I felt was that I have to wait until the fall of 2011 for the next installment of the Bright Empires series!
