Meet Jennifer Tempest, author of “The Cardinal War,” Alexander R. Davis, author of “Omeron: The Hero’s Chronicle Book 1,” and Anat Eliraz, author of “Jewels of Smoky Quartz.”
Jennifer Tempest, author of “The Cardinal War” – With no known heir to the Empire, four conflicting noble families will use whatever means necessary to claim power for themselves, but only one can become the next ruler. While the nobles fight amongst themselves, some people of the Empire struggle to survive.
Anat Eliraz, author of “Jewels of Smoky Quartz” – She is just an ordinary woman – an emergency room nurse who practices martial arts in her free time. Teleported into a harsh, strange world and sold into slavery to the fighters’ ring of Tur’an, she must use her wit and skills to survive. On the brink of death, she wakes up in a strange room – only to meet one of her captors. Now, he acts as her protector. Together they leave the city, but their journey will confront them with their own fears and deepest secrets. And through it all, she finds solace in an old tune. Not knowing yet how it will impact her life – and the lives of everyone else.
Alexander R. Davis, author of “Omeron: The Hero’s Chronicle Book 1” – “If you could stop all of this, would you?” the hero asked. Randrum knelt before the hero, who was adorned in his bloodstained armor. That armor had once been bright and gleaming, but no longer. Randrum only lifted his eyes, too weak to stand. He hardly noticed the blood-red snow, or the still bodies around them, which he himself would soon join. “Of course, I would… but it’s too late,” Randrum said before going into a fit of coughing. Once he recovered somewhat he raised his eyes to meet the hero’s gaze. “No one can turn back the hands of time….” The hero crouched down before Randrum, still holding his gaze. “But what if one could?” Randrum licked his lips. The blood loss must have been getting to him. He actually considered the question, even though it was impossible. “If it were… possible… I would sacrifice anything to change this.” The hero smiled and held out his hand. “That’s the right answer.” Randrum hesitated, then reached for that hand. If a murderer was given the choice between death and becoming a hero, something so contrary to everything they know, would they? Even if they did, could they actually change? Could they fight their nature and become a true hero?
