We Are the Origin (Wrath of the Gods Book 1) by C.M. Lockhart

She was a shadow. Forced into a life of serving the queendom before she was old enough to deny them, Brandi was a cultivator of death and the queen’s own blade, reserved only for the disloyal and the blasphemous. Crafted by the queendom and forged in blood, she was nothing more than a tool. She was never meant to have an opinion on whose blood she shed — never meant to question whose back she was pressed into or whose throat she was slipped across. She was destruction. But when Freya, the goddess of life and judger of souls, demands that she protect rather than destroy, Brandi has no choice but to obey her new orders. And while abandoning the queendom comes with its own set of problems, being hunted by the people she once called family is the least of her worries when the gods reveal to her an enemy who exists beyond the reach of their power. So, with a helpless princess in tow, she begins her search for a way to fight this impossible enemy and save the realm from destruction. Because she is the wrath of the gods. And it was foolish for anyone to forget that.

It just implies that broken hearts can break worlds.” – These words didn’t even mean a thing to Plato before stepping out of the house for a wedding feast! After an innocent day of debating with his old pupil Aristotle and drinking wine, Plato, the famous Greek philosopher, unexpectedly goes back in time through a portal where the first person he meets is Narada – a young adventurer that will assist him in his prophetic quest. Realizing this was much before his time, he tries to take in as much of this new, enchanting world as possible: from the alluring cities and rich nations, to the intriguing Gods & Giants walking the Earth. Along the way, Plato attempts to help those he meets, like the beautiful Azaes – a Goddess that will change his view on love forever. However, there is but a couple of days left on this planet before everything dies, and he desperately needs to get back to his time. To make things worse, there is evil intent on stopping him so Plato and his new friends can never deviate for long, not when nearly everyone he tries to help ends up dying right before his eyes. Can Plato stop the war that could follow if he doesn’t get back home? Or will a blossoming love in Azaes blind him to Evil’s true face? Begin your journey through time here and find out for yourself!


Lost Bonds (Binding Words) by Daniel Schinhofen

After tightening the Bonds with his friends, Sean worked toward new things and trying to fix past mistakes. He and his growing family had just moved into a new home and hired on new staff for day-to-day matters. All he wanted to do was craft and love his wives, and it seemed like the peaceful life he hoped for might be within his reach. Denmur and Lord Sharpeyes would not let that happen. Using their connections, they put into motion a chain of events that would reverberate across the city of Hearthglen. Sean was called to attend the Lord’s party— he came, bringing all of his family and friends with him. Both sides were surprised by events as they unfolded, and it quickly became apparent that conflict would not be denied. With the Einherjar, a Valkyrie, and an old foe, Velin Dykstra, backing them up, Evan Sharpeyes and Klein Denmur challenged Sean to trial by combat. Exhausted and with depleted energy, Sean still led his wives onto the field of battle. The fight was bloody and taxing, but in the end, Sean struck down Evan Sharpeyes before collapsing. With his eyesight fading, Sean looked at his wives, but only saw a few female-like figures rushing toward him. The last sound he heard was a great many wings converging on him, and his mind drifted to thoughts of Morrigan... Word of Sean’s victory spread throughout the city, but none could say whether he had survived to enjoy it. (This work contains adult situations that some might find offensive, the least of which is graphic sex. This book is about an Overpowered MC, and contains a harem. You’ve been warned.)

She’s adopted into the Amazon code of honor, bravery, and righteousness. But Cora is not an Amazon nymph. And prophecy holds quite a different fate for her as she grows into adulthood—Hades, Lord of the Underworld.

Nephrea offers a sacrifice to quell her rage, but down in the fiery world below, it might be more than just the goddess who will need saving.

As nymph queen Delia grieves the death of the king who once united them, her unruly daughter, Avva, wishes to mourn him in her own way. Avva plans a flyover with her unicorn beyond the Strait of Azure. Such hubris forces sacrifice. Nymphs fall to the Underworld. In the depths, they find Cora, the goddess Persephone.
