Black Friday Deal • #Free Sword & Sorcery

KIRASGRIn the spirit of Black Friday, I’m offering my book Kira as a free Kindle download HERE.

Blurb: Poisoned by an enemy, a young warrior struggles to find an antidote before she succumbs to enslavement. At the same time, she’s desperate to save Dorsit, a Leopard Clan wizard whose youth and magic has been stolen by a murderous wizard on a rampage. As Kira’s homeland is invaded by bloodthirsty legions, she flees across the country in a bid to reach the Mirrum Mountain nymphs and a legendary cure. Hunted by shadow hounds, Cyclopes, and an evil jinn, will her wits and skill as a warrior be enough to survive?

Excerpt

Kira directed Myst onto the main thoroughfare connecting the east and west borders of Nomad Territory. Although the road was deserted at present, local farmers and merchants would soon arrive as they delivered goods to Wyckcrest Village marketplace. The early morning air seemed to energize Myst, but Kira kept her to a fast walk. With such a long way to go, she didn’t want the horse to tire too quickly. A week’s ride lay ahead of her as she journeyed toward the eastern mountain range. Then, after she reached the river, her route would turn south for another three or four days.
Her growling stomach reminded Kira she’d not yet eaten. Just as she reached toward her saddlebag, two unsavory men leaped into the road with swords drawn. She reined Myst in. “Step aside.”

“Hand over your money bag, lass, and we won’t hurt ye.”

Kira sighed inwardly, even as her hand moved inside her jacket. “I’ve no wish to kill you before breakfast. Toss your swords to the ground and back away.”
The men exchanged a glance and laughed. After a moment, Kira joined in—which bewildered the robbers at first, but then made them angry. No sooner had they stepped toward her when she hurled a pair of throwing knives. The men crumpled to the dirt, clutching their throats. Too late, she saw a third highwayman armed with a bow and arrow, perched in a tree.

KIRASGRKIRA has a beautiful new cover!

Blurb:

Poisoned by an enemy, Kira struggles to find an antidote before she succumbs to enslavement. At the same time, she’s desperate to save Dorsit, a Leopard Clan wizard whose youth and magic has been stolen by a murderous wizard on a rampage. As Kira’s homeland is invaded by bloodthirsty legions, Kira flees across the country in a bid to reach the Mystic Mountain nymphs and a legendary cure. Hunted by shadow hounds, an army of Cyclopes, and an evil jinn, will her wits and skill as a warrior be enough to survive?

Excerpt:

When Reye and Kira emerged from the lodge, he yanked her down behind a horse trough in time to escape the notice of a squad of armor-clad Cyclopes marching south down the main street. Huge axes and other weapons hung from the giants’ belts or were gripped in their massive fists.

“What on Yden are those creatures?” Reye whispered.

“Mandral calls them cygards,” she murmured. “He’s formed an army of Cyclopes.”

“That’s insane!”

“If we don’t get out of Eastknot before his cygards surround the town, we’ll be captured. My father will have no warning what’s about to befall Nomad Territory.”

“Wyckcrest is seven days from here,” Reye said. “Even if we rode hard, we wouldn’t get there in time to do much good.”

“Ylan is four days away, and I just learned Dorsit is alive. He can transport us directly to my father’s encampment, and help us fight off the invasion. I fear he’s our only hope.”

Reye nodded, peeked over the trough to make sure no cygards were watching, and then pulled Kira to her feet.

“Let’s move.”
