The son of a trapper, raised by elves, befriended by animals, entrusted with magic, Barr was but a boy on a journey that had taken many, many lifetimes.  Seeking to avenge his father’s death, he would cross into Lomintor, home to shapelings of all manner and size.  Little did he know, Revyn, the God of Change, had plans of his own, plans set in motion long before Barr was ever born.  It was what Revgn had be waiting for, the time when one of the new races bore a child on its final lesson, a soul on the verge of enlightenment.  It was what Markus had awaited as well, enduring centuries of enchanted slumber so that he might one day rule all of Taellos … in Revgn’s name.  The Emblems would no longer be hidden, and revenants would stop at nothing to find them.  It had finally come, the journey’s end …

THE HEALER’S LEGACY

Running from an abusive relationship with a powerful Warlord, Kira flees toward the land of her mother’s people.

She is harried by mercenaries and finally forced to fight, not only for her freedom, but for the lives of those she comes to love.

Terry Ambrose Author- LICENSE TO LIE

LICENSE TO LIE

by Terry Ambrose

License to Lie by Terry Ambrose

  1. 41QvKmuO3qL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-65,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_[1]

    Never trust a soul—even your own. Two experts in the art of communications. Both are driven by their goals—and they’re on opposite sides of the law. But, when her father is kidnapped, they join forces—and learn that with $5,000,000 and their lives on the line, it’s hard to trust each other—or themselves.

    Book Reviews: “License to Lie, set in San Diego, puts some nice new pavement down on the road to structuring the ultimate mystery novel. Author Terry Ambrose pits a PI and a scam artist against both each other and a crew of kidnappers. The author cranks up a festival of back and forth action, telling investigator Skip Cosgrove’s story in third person and alternating chapters with Roxy, the scam artist, speaking for herself in first person.

    A detail oriented writer, Ambrose also crafts an intricate series of plot turns and reversals, employing well realized dramatic action in a realist’s world, where human nature runs not in the red or the black, but, rather, in the gray, and where information technology is key to doing anything well, especially crime and criminal investigation.

    Parallel lines of action and the author’s knowledge of technology are especially well realized in two scenes where the investigator, Skip Cosgrove, cracks a computer while scam artist Roxy Tanner cracks a hard disk. Containing both humor and terror, License to Lie brings the reader along in quick time and I missed Roxy and Skip by the time it was all over–but by that time, not to give the story away completely, they had found each other.” By Clark Lohr

    “License to Lie is fast and well written, almost sure to satisfy discerning readers of thrillers.  There’s a verve to Ambrose’s language and the story moves with assurance, defying easy predictions.  Bravo to this writer.  I hope there’s more to come.” — T. Jefferson Parker, Author of The Jaguar and The Border Lords

    “Fast-paced, unpredictable, and a lot of fun–no one is who they seem in this smart and twisty tale of high finance and double dealing. This unlikely and irresistible crime-fighting duo will charm you–and keep you happily turning the pages.” — Hank Phillippi Ryan, Anthony, Agatha and Macavity award-

Greg Knowles Author- NORTH WITH DOC Series

NORTH WITH DOC Series

by Greg Knowles

Greg Knowles’s 24 years as a humor columnist for IN-FISHERMAN magazine have built a loyal reader based across the country for his NORTH WITH DOC series.  Knowles has recently revisited his first 20 years of work, and created five e-books with 25 NORTH WITH DOC episodes in each. The short stories follow Doc, a banker, an attorney, a policeman, a plant manager and a writer who make annual fishing trips to the Northwest Ontario bush, visiting lakes accessible only by float plane.  Although much of the action takes place while the men beat the water to a froth to catch walleyes and pike, the stories are more about human foibles than fish.  The five volumes of NORTH WITH DOC are available for $3.99 each on Amazon and Smashwords.  For more information, email greg@btritms.com
