Powerless Mage Battles Psionically Gifted Dragons and Superstitious Steampunk Society

Unproven

#1 Best Seller in free YA SFF Steampunk novels 
#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). With strong female characters, a dark M. Night Shyamalan twist, dragons on steroids, a Brandon Sanderson-esque tight plot, and prodigious world building, Unproven is destined to satiate readers who enjoy sword and sorcery, mythical creatures, ghosts, dark fantasy, psychological thrillers, and Dungeons & Dragons.

Forget the coffee. Unproven will keep you reading late into the night. Grab your copy and see why veteran producer Beth “Bea” Roose predicted it would be a hit.

Stupendous

A story of technology versus magic, also machines versus nature. As the long journey of the mages comes to an end, I’m left not knowing if the end came or if it was a fit of madness. The storyline is Continue Reading

All Nighter …

The main character ... was interesting and believable. I enjoyed the book and found myself going for "one more chapter" before calling it a night. That is my measure of a good book; do I have a hard time putting Continue Reading

Couldn’t Stop Reading

I couldn’t put it down, it had so many twists and turns it kept me on the tip of my seat. Though I couldn’t stop reading ... I didn’t want the story to end!

Compelling Epic Fantasy

Visually and sensorily compelling epic fantasy with tremendous world-building. … Shadow can crumble under the contempt of others, or embrace his Gift and change destiny.

Epic! New Favorite Magical Beast

Excellent story, wonderful characters, and I have a new favorite magical beast. Sorry dragons, you are now only second favorite. I hope the author considers a follow-up.
