Sandman Chronicles: The Gates of Olympia

There's no such thing as monsters. All the things you were afraid of as a child aren't real. There's nothing under your bed. The thing that wakes you up in the middle of the night, heart racing, it's just a bad dream, and dreams don't come true. There's nothing to be afraid of.



For members of The Order, an ancient and secret society, it's a very different story.

As descendants of the Greek gods, they know the truth.

On their mission to Olympia to stop the God of Fear from terrorising everyone with Nightmares, they'll learn there are more secrets in a secret society than they realised and there's always another story to be told.



Meanwhile, back in Ashwood, things are becoming increasingly strange for Mara. University lectures and relationships are the least of her worries. Her dreams are turning into nightmares and they feel so real. People are going missing and the craziest thing is that monsters might be to blame.

But monsters aren't real. Nightmares don't come true. Greek gods are just a myth.

Soon she'll discover that reality is what you make of it.



Is it all real or is it all just a bad dream?



Join our fellowship of unlikely heroes as they step through the Gates of Olympia, and perhaps you will uncover the truth about the Gods and The Order before they do.





If you enjoy fantasy adventure books with a mythological twist like those by authors such as Rick Riordan and historically rich worlds in the tradition of J. R. R. Tolkien and J. K. Rowling but with the gripping and immersive, multiple character storytelling in the style of authors such as Bella Forrest and George R. R. Martin, then you will love this new fantasy series, which sets the realm of the Greek gods in a whole other world, where an unlikely band of misfits must travel to in order to save our own.

Finch Henry's Air Fish

‘An enthralling and thought provoking MUST read, full of original ideas.’

'A speculative fiction novel that explores existance and the way we value life. Uplifting and completely gripping.'

Finch watches, perplexed, as the bride enters the glass chamber and lies down on the velvet draped bed. Cinema screens emerge streaming live footage of her, yet there is no sign of any groom. This isn’t like any wedding Finch had attended on his native island, but then the mainland has proved able to astonish at every turn. 

What was the single scientific discovery that the island rejected so long ago, creating a vast chasm in technological evolution between itself and the mainland? What can have been divisive enough to warrant the construction of new borders, trapping islanders in a bygone era while the mainland developed an advanced philosophical ethos? How will Finch relate to the beautiful Olga who has grown up with this evolved mindset, so far removed from his own, island-learnt outlook?

Reviews:

What a book! Tough storyline to tackle, and yet this book really delivers. EH Tuning in to our trajectory for the big things in life such as our modern take on religion and our ever-expanding technology, blending them to depict a perhaps very realistic future. Very human characters this book made me laugh and cry, the characters are likeable and alive and the story gathers pace quickly. Thought-through, inspired, beautifully written and so visual. Intelligent stuff. I'm twenty pages from the end and don't want it to finish. Highly recommended - you'll feel entertained, gripped, and possibly even enlightened.

Added comment: just finished it, ending is perfect.

 

I purchased this book not knowing anything about it. Well, I was thoroughly surprised..in such a GOOD way! It kept my attention from cover to cover. The story line is very thought provoking and beautifully written. When you finish reading this book, you will look at life just that little bit differently. Hopefully, the author will do a sequel.

 

This was an amazing and thought provoking read. Took a few pages before I engaged but certainly worth it. Highly recommend it to anyone who likes an intellectual challenge.

 

This is an excellent story add I couldn’t put the book down. The central idea is original, imaginative and full of surprises.There is a lot of humour in it but the underlying theme is both thought provoking and challenging. The characters are strongly portrayed and authentic, and I found the main character, Finch, captivating. I must say, without giving the any of the story away, that the final denouement is brilliant.

Shadow Falls

It was meant to be the perfect gift—an ancestral DNA kit. A unique gift given to my mother with love and hope. I only wanted to help us heal, to give her something that could help fill the emptiness his death had made. I never imagined this gift would cost me more than money. What secrets lie hidden in your blood? What mysteries could your DNA solve? A cryptic riddle dropped into the bottom of the kit. Questions that I had not bothered to wonder about. My family’s blood was full of secrets and mystery. Secrets that had been hidden for years. Secrets that would lead to death and pain. I had gave her with Pandora’s box. I had given her death.

Holding out for a Hero (Jelvia: Not Human Book 1)

We humans have always outnumbered Jelvias—that was until falling birth rates became a reality.

And now the Jelvia: bigger, stronger, disease and injury resistant—and venomous—looks set to topple us from world domination.

Some say it’s too late to acknowledge the invisible technology that distorts the truth about the Jelvian timeline. And others live in oblivion knowing—or not wanting to know—that there is no scientific proof sustaining that Jelvias evolved alongside us on our planet; they don’t question why there is no photography, ancient books, or old Jelvian fossils, or even why they aren’t any old Jelvias.

They definitely don’t recognise the danger we are in.

And journalist, Macy Shaw, is one of those people.

When she was twelve years old, her mother was murdered, and subconsciously ever since, Macy’s been searching for a hero. But the hero she found was a Jelvia. Undeterred, she used her connections to go after the biggest story of her life.



Narcifer saved a woman by merely being a Jelvia—his presence causing terror and making the assailants flee. And it amused him when his “heroism” created a national stir, so when a pretty little red-head asked to interview him for a story, Narcifer felt compelled to grant it to her, especially when she gave all the signals that she wanted more than a story.



However, on the night Narcifer inadvertently became a hero, he had been tracking a scientist with orders to kill, and strangely no matter where Narcifer’s line of investigation took him, his search always brought him back to the red-headed journalist, Macy Shaw.

This book is the first in the JELVIA: NOT HUMAN series.

JELVIA: NOT HUMAN books can be read as a standalone novel, although you’ll gain a better understanding of the Jelvian world by reading in order.
