Powerless Mage Battles Psionically Gifted Dragons and Superstitious Steampunk Society


#1 Best Seller in free YA SFF Steampunk novels and
#2 Best Seller in free YA SFF Action & Adventure 

When Shadow, a powerless mage, chose exile to preserve family honor, he didn’t expect a mysterious call to defeat psionic, camouflaging dragons – nor did he expect them to offer him a glimpse into a life wielding a mage’s power.

Surprises mount when a steampunk army invades his homeland and Shadow is tasked with uncovering the secret behind magic’s evolution while leading a youth team infested with at least one traitor. Distracted by an unwelcome romance, losses mount as he stumbles through treachery, vampiric vines, ancient disembodied mages, and the legendary Mists of Ishmandool where few escape with their sanity.

By the time Shadow announces he’s found the solution, it may be too late. Even if it’s not, it risks the complete annihilation of his people and worse, it’s unproven.

Unproven has drawn comparisons to Ursula Le Guin (Harry Potter’s biggest influence), Elaine Cunningham (the queen of dark fantasy and Forgotten Realms), and Fydor Dostoevsky (psychological godfather of Crime and Punishment). …

When Invisibility Is Insufficient, He Hides in Plain Sight

Soul Hunter

Assassin Hunter: Book II


When invisibility is insufficient protection from his enemies,
Darkmind hides in plain sight – in Ji Anna’s body.

Told from Darkmind’s perspective, Vaya Sage finds himself in a lethal game of wits while still disoriented from a black market brain scan.

While Darkmind reviews memories from previous bodies, Vaya Sage must determine whether or not to confront Darkmind. If he does, he risks mental enslavement – if he doesn’t, he may destroy everything he’s fought for.

High Tech Assassin Struggles to Disentangle Memory Alterations from Reality

Assassin Hunter

When a high-tech assassin is captured by a lithe little teen and her thugs, Vaya Sage questions his memories and launches the messiest blood bath of his career. But will the reality he unravels be less believable than memories he never questioned?

Although short, this novella packs a punch as it explores the inevitable challenges of a futuristic world where memory implants, memory erasures, and maybe even magic are a reality. Action packed with carefully researched world building, Assassin Hunter will leave your brain scrambling to vainly guess the ending while hanging on the edge of your seat. Fans of X-Files and Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files are in for a treat as they meet Vaya Sage and the craftiest nemesis he’s encountered so far. Blurring the lines between dark fantasy, science fiction, and crime thrillers, this novella is uniquely poised to become a favorite.
