The Dragoneers (The Chronicles of Susah Book 1)

The Dragoneers (The Chronicles of Susah Book 1)

Product Description

NARROW WAY PRESS:
"A literary benchmark; THE DRAGONEERS is nearly perfect in every way."

KIRKUS:
“In this new edition of his first novel, Sutherland (The Last Dragoneer, 2014, etc.) creates a modern-feeling world before Noah’s flood, a world populated with dragons, warriors, and a determined young woman who fearlessly seeks her proper place in the world ... an original vision of a corrupt antediluvian world, one that feels modern yet magical …”

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY:
"This novel defies conventional classification: is it science fiction? biblical fiction? thriller? The story describes a world where flying two-headed dragons and ogres exist, characters with telepathic gifts communicate with both animals and people, a man named Noah builds an Ark in his backyard, and a six-fingered giant named Lilith wants to take over the world. While this collage may have been implausible in lesser hands, the author makes it work ...”

THE DRAGONEERS follows the adventures of Susah, a talented young woman, who refuses to join her three brothers in helping advance the family business. She’d rather do something exciting with her life. While this story could have been set in any time, the fantastical world she lives in amplifies each step nearly beyond the bounds of imagination.

Against her parents' wishes, Susah leaves home on a quest to become one of the dragoneers, an elite fraternity of warriors sworn to defend the ancient Garden of Eden against all trespassers.

Meanwhile, deep in a lair inside of Sethopolis' roughest neighborhood, an evil giantess dreams of seizing the secrets of immortality and other powers, which she believes are hidden within the walls of the forbidden garden. Realizing she can't achieve her dream with her own resources, she joins forces with a fallen angel, nearly as old as time itself.

Unaware of the dangers awaiting her, Susah faces her greatest challenge. With the fate of the human race depending on their performance, will the dragoneers succeed in defending the Garden of Eden against the forces of evil? And even if they do, will Susah survive the pivotal battle of good verses evil?

This adventure builds on the little we know about the antediluvian world and overlays it with a blend of technology, supernatural powers, fire-and-ice-breathing, flying dragons, giants, and martial arts to begin Susah's adventure to discover her purpose.

This is the first book of exciting series, The Chronicles of Susah, which introduced antediluvian steampunk, a retro-futurfantastic genre that synthesizes literary Biblical Fiction with traditional Science Fiction Steampunk.

There is more to this story than you've been told.

Enemy in Blue: The Chase (Book #1) (The Cruz Marquez Thrillers)

Product Description

Amazon's bestselling cop thriller, Enemy in Blue!  

PRAISE FOR ENEMY IN BLUE

"The plot is as gripping as it is chilling. The story flows smoothly, and each chapter ends with the perfect amount of suspense to keep you wanting more. A fantastic and exciting read, as I could not put the book down." -B.Burton

"A great first thriller for this young author. I would compare this story to John Grisham's book of "The Innocent Man." It is that captivating and more." -M. Bautista

"You know a book is good when you are not an avid reader but you discover you don't want to put a book down." -E. Streible

BOOK DESCRIPTION

The streets aren't safe when your enemy wears a blue uniform and a gold badge.

What if the good guys weren't good?

What if a cop went rogue and killed an innocent man?

What if it was all caught on video and the cop would do anything to cover it up?


MORE PRAISE FOR ENEMY IN BLUE

"Much like the script of an action-packed movie, Enemy in Blue will buffet you from one hair-raising scene to another -- and will always leave you pondering, who's the real enemy?" -L.Capritta

"This novel took me out of my comfort zone and placed me in the shoes of many people in America who live in fear. Overall, it was excellent and I highly recommend it." -Dolores M.

"I can honestly say that I could not put this book down!" -L. Rivera

"I can not believe all the places you go and the points of view you have as you consume these pages. If you are looking for a great read, look no further!!!" -S.Seitz

"Enemy in Blue grabbed me from page one and didn't let go until the last page was turned. I had to keep reminding myself that this was a debut novel.... because it read like many of the seasoned legal thriller authors that I love to read and get lost in." -K.Velte

For anyone that craves an action-packed thriller and can't get their fill of John Grisham, Dean Koontz or James Patterson...ENEMY IN BLUE is your next escape!

"For action, body-count and digging into the underworld of police politics - this is really a great read. However, I think the best asset of the novel is the incredible drawing of the antagonist - the evil Sergeant Shaver really shines."

Excerpt

There wasn't really a book I wanted, though I could always find one. My mom had said once I'd learned to read, I hadn't stopped. From cereal boxes, to the newspaper, to just about any book that passed through my hands, I felt compelled to read. Lost in a book, I could tune out everything else. My mom could be yelling at me from the other end of the apartment or my sister badgering me with her constant "why" questions, and I would be oblivious to it all if I were lost in a book. It was my second favorite thing to do. After writing. Yet another way I was a lot like my mom. She had been a professor of history at East University in New York City, before she had decided to take her sabbatical. She would have loved this room.

So I paused for a moment, letting my eyes roam over the shelves. I was sure I'd examined them all in my time in the Special Collections Room. The only decent book had been that history of Weston City. It had been filled with photos, tons of remembrances from old-timers, and fun little tidbits about the town, like how a whole valley of farms had been flooded to make room for a reservoir. Legend was the farm families had been forced out as the water rushed in, covering up houses that now sat in watery silence at the bottom of the lake. Creepy. Of course, it was in the same book where I had read about Hiram and Hannah.

My eye caught something new. I reached up, then jerked my hand back. I thought I heard something, like a faint whirring sound. I held my breath and looked around, behind me, and to each side, just to be sure. Nothing. The sound had stopped so maybe I had just imagined it. I put my hand up again and gently placed my index finger on the spine of a book I'd never seen before. Could it be? Something in this section I had missed? It was a slim little book, wedged in tightly on the shelf. I had to use a bit of force to pry it out, but gently, since I could see the leather cover was starting to fray a bit.

The book slid out with a smattering of dust and a small shower of brown leather flakes. Almost as if I thought an alarm would go off, I looked around again. Funny, I couldn't shake the sense I was being watched. But there was only the sound of my own breathing as I turned the book over in my hands.

It was a reddish-brown volume, with an inlay of faded gold leaf tracing a sunken rectangular design. There was no title on it. Slowly I opened the cover and looked carefully at the first page. It was signed in faded ink, in flowery, old-fashioned lettering. I flipped through a few pages, feeling the corners start to crumble off, seeing more of the same writing. It was a diary.
