Oracle Chapters 1-3 Sample

What would you do if you could see the future?

Diana Hawthorne can do just that. Every day she delves into personal prophecies, giving guidance to all the poor souls knocking at her door. There's a catch; while she helps others see where they've been, and to know where they're going…she has no recollection of her own beginnings. Nothing before the age of twenty-four holds residency in her mind.

As pieces begin to fall in and out of place, Diana is forced to make a decision that could unlock her memory but unravel her world.



Polarities (The Pendomus Chronicles Book 2) - Chapters 1-3 Sample

Runa, the prophesied Daughter of Five needs to learn how to master herself, or all of Pendomus will perish.

Separated from the only people who’ve had her back—as well as the love of her life, Traeton—Runa must go on a quest alone to uncover what it means to be human, as well as the Daughter of Five. Dropped in an unknown location, presumably still on the planet, she only has a monolithic book — the Caudex — as her guide, but it’s not giving up its answers easily. Will she be able to uncover the mysteries? The fate of the entire word rests on her shoulders & her ability to push through all of the challenges set her way.

Will she learn what she needs to step into her role as savior? Or will everything be derailed by her desire to get back to her friends?

Pendomus (The Pendomus Chronicles Book 1) - Chapters 1-3 Sample

A secret hidden in plain sight. A devastating attack. And a world hanging in the balance.

There are a lot of things I wish I’d known earlier—but three top my “wow, she was naïve” list.

First—there are others on Pendomus.

Second—a prophecy is in motion & I hold the key to the survival of literally everything.

Third—I'm being hunted by a madman who is desperately trying to wipe me from existence.

So yeah, no pressure.
