true love?

midsummer

New @ the library, the entire Shakespeare play — unabridged & Graphic!

“The course of true love never did run smooth;”

With its mix of real people who stumble into a fairy kingdom (with it’s own problems!) it’s little wonder that this play is one of the best loved and most performed of all Shakespeare’s masterpieces.

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).

“Don’t be ashamed to weep; ’tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”
— Brian Jacques (Taggerung)

are you heartless?

heartless

Heartless, by Anne Elisabeth Stengl is a “timeless Fantasy that will keep you spellbound”. Princess Una of Parumvir, entertaining the notion of marriage, is not taken with Prince Aethelbald, who she believes to be kind but not exciting with his constant warnings of danger from a rumored dragon, but circumstances conspire to make her change her mind. Fighting off an advancing evil will cause these  courageous characters to risk everything they have for hope.

epic page turner

“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!
