Original Action Historical Sci-fi Multiple Lead Characters Secret Identity Profanity Gore Low Fantasy Steampunk War and Military Ruling Class Genetically Engineered Technologically Engineered Soft Sci-fi

 The Great War has ended. But the bloodshed has only just begun.

 The largest conflict in all of human history has just ended, with Europe at the center of the carnage. For fifty long and hard years, billions of men died each month for no gain. Not even the slightest of centimeters had been gained for some nations.

 While others struggle to hold on to their hard-fought victories.

 In the midst of all of this is The Second Roman Empire. At the center of the Islamic and Jewish world the empire finds itself struggling to keep Eastern neighbors at bay while old enemies stir up trouble from within. When documents pertaining to the identities of the many men working to undermine the empire shows itself in domestic waters.

 The Empire readies itself to slice off the many parasites draining the government of both wealth and unity.

 If only the documents didn't also happen to end up on The Dotted Isles. Dozens of man-made islands, some even hundreds of miles large. And currently one of the most unstable areas of the entire empire.

 As Roman agents rush to the document, Italian forces move in tandem to set up Insurgencies to wrestle control away from the Romans.

 And as all this goes down, the common citizen remains, either Vat-Born or Birthed. As it turns out, sometimes the greatest players of these conflicts happen to be the men and women who know least about them.

Tur Briste

Tur Briste

Original Action Adventure Fantasy Martial Arts Male Lead Magic Wuxia Profanity Xianxia High Fantasy Mythos Progression

A Druid cultivation novel. Borrows concepts from Wuxia and Xianxia but using Druid myth and lore.

Druids of the Oak had remained in hiding for thousands of years, afraid that those who once tried to destroy the Druid Order would come back to finish off the nine clans that survived. After ten thousand years of hiding, the Order rose once more—unopposed. Their ancient enemy was nowhere to be found. The clans of the Druid Order didn’t get along, but the balance of power remained.

Crow, a boy in the Maddox clan, may be the catalyst that undoes this equilibrium. Fate has chosen to blind itself to his actions, and no one can even scry him, his past, or even his future. It isn’t because he lacks a future, but on occasion, fate chooses not to acknowledge a person, these unfated individuals are usually agents of change.

Nothing comes easy for the unfated, but it is his only path to survival. Already the Maddox clan is on the decline, and other than the boy’s father, there hasn’t been a real talent that’s appeared in over a hundred years. This disrupts the plans of those who were waiting around like vultures, waiting for one of the original nine to fall.

Conall, the boy’s father, has made more than a few enemies in his time, the worst of which was Gideon, his wife’s father. The man was pure evil, and should he find out that  Crow exists, there may never be a path of survival for the boy. Not to mention Ciara, Crow’s mother, is a witch with her own ancient bloodline, one that can never be discussed openly. Witches are very sensitive to fate, speaking of them never ends well.

Enemies are lining up, and Crow must gain power quickly. Becoming a cultivator was never a choice for him, not if he wanted to get his parents back, protect his friends and clan, and to protect himself. If they want a fight, he’ll give them one, even if he has to defy the heavens to do so.

I use some Scottish Gaelic words at times, in the story I'm calling it ancient text or something like that
Tur Briste = Shattered Tower.
Draoidh = Druid

Release schedule: 2 chapters a week (Sunday and Tuesday) - Possible bonus chapter on Fridays.
I would like to release faster and do more, but I work 50-70 hours a week at my day job and have a family with younger kids so I have commitments.

The bright red light of the flames swallowed her vision but soon that red light transformed into a blue hue and she was dragged into that light.

‘What’s happening?’ 

It was too bright and she was forced to close her eyes, she was blinded — even though she was already dead.

After being pulled into the light she began to feel annoyed as her skin was irritated by some kind of rough sand. 

By the time she opened her eyes. She could see the full view of the sky. It was blue and there were clouds scattered about.

‘Ugh, is this Hell?’

She stated as she rubbed her head with her fluffy and furry ‘hand’.

‘Furry?’

She looked at her ‘hands’ and her mouth opened wide. Her hands had become soft and fluffy paws of a white-furred beast with purple spots.

‘What the hell?’

She touched her face with her paws and confirmed that it too did not belong to a human. Below, she felt something was moving, she can tell as if it was another limb connected to her.

‘Don’t tell me!’

Turning her head around, she found a seven-inch tail sticking out behind.

‘Phew!’ She felt relieved that it wasn’t what she thought it was.

“These soft and paws, this cuddly fluffy hair, this cute tail — ah shit, did I become a beast after my death or have I been dreaming of being human as a beast all this time? If it is the latter that is one long and realistic dream.”

As always thank you for reading, also the image in the cover is not mine, I found it on Pinterest and thought it was cool and suitable. All credits got to the illustrator.

Also, this is a new type of story that I have not read about yet. Basically I am writing an evolution novel without prior knowledge so I don't really know what is considered cliche in this genre.

Do you believe in a love story, one that never existed, do you believe in the existence of a love story that vanishes out of thin air, the odds of such a story once existing in this dreamful world… this world that is filled with the dreams of many?

The Bloodlet Sun

Original Adventure Female Lead Low Fantasy Male Lead Multiple Lead Characters Non-Human lead Sci-fi Soft Sci-fi Space Opera

2,000 years after a planet-wide disaster now only known as the Great Fire, humans have unlocked the potential of an ancient substance known as the Drops of the Bloodlet Sun and have taken to the stars. Soon they discover that the Drops are an ubiquitous if somewhat rare substance that forms the core of all advanced technology and humans are a late arrival to a crowded affair. Most habitable worlds are already under control of other species and the vast Thorian Empire covers one third of all known territory.

Propelled by its role in the Last Gasp War, the first war in recent memory that the Thorians have lost, Earth plays a prominent role in the formation of the Outer Rim Confederacy, the newest player in a political game that has for millennia centered around keeping the Thorians at bay. In its newest bid to not be the small fish in a big pond, the ORC dispatches the starship Forseti on a clandestine mission to a wormhole on the far side of the Thorian Empire in the hopes of unlocking the secret to faster interstellar travel.

Meanwhile, various factions position themselves to benefit from the chink in the armor of the Thorians, while the Thorians seek to send a clear message that the sun had not begun to set on their Empire.
