Warrior Unleashed by Lindsay Avalon

Re-releasing September 17 from Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing

Nothings more dangerous than a warrior unleashed….

It’s the Cover Reveal for ‘Warrior Unleashed’ by Lindsay Avalon!

Welcome to the official cover reveal of Warrior Unleashed, book 1.5 in the Mythrian Realm series! When Breaking the Nexus released on 12/12/12, readers fell in love with the Mythrian Realm and clamored for more. Since the follow up, Waking the Phoenix won’t be ready until sometime this summer, I knew I had to give readers a taste of Mythria.

Warrior Unleashed, a novella featuring Sha’s half brother, will be released on May 7! This novella is set entirely in the Mythrian Realm and while the hero and heroine are not Sha and Connor, I think you’ll all fall in love with this couple. Find out what happens when the sexy panther Chimerae, Achaius Rilke, must team up with feisty Gaelen Sorceri Saia Makan in this action packed novella!

Without further ado, I present the gorgeous cover designed by Blue Harvest Creative!

 

 

Nothing is more dangerous than a warrior unleashed. 

When Sentinels begin dying under mysterious circumstances, the deaths are believed to be unrelated. Only one man sees the truth: an unknown enemy is targeting the elite group of warriors and no one is safe. As a panther Chimerae, Achaius Rilke recognizes the signs of an unpredictable predator. The only person he can trust is Saia Makan, the tempestuous Sorceri who has driven him crazy for years. But when the killer has set his sights on Saia, Achaius faces the hunt of his life.

Don’t miss the first book, Breaking the Nexus, available now on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and in paperback!

A warrior trying to save humans. A detective searching for a killer. And a powerful romance neither expected. 

Throughout history, myths and legends of extraordinary creatures have been told and retold. Fantastic tales of demons and banshees, gryphons and dragons, and of course, magic. Stories that every child grows to learn are nothing more than fantasy…or are they?

Beyond the world you see lies a hidden realm, the Mythrian Realm, inhabited by all of the creatures you’ve been told are mere fiction. Only one thing lies between humans and the truth: the Nexus. A magical barrier erected millennia ago to separate the two realms, it has stood the test of time. Until now.

For Mythrian Sha Phoenix, magic is nothing new. But when she stumbles upon a portal on the verge of collapse, her fate will forever change. Pulled through the portal into the Human Realm, she lands in the middle of Detective Connor Flynn’s brutal murder scene. Soon it is obvious someone is using blood magic to try to bring down the Nexus. Together, Connor and Sha must work to unravel the secrets before the barrier falls and the realms collide.

The Nexus is breaking and all hell is about to unleash…literally.

Meet Lindsay Avalon!

I am a wife, a programmer, and now an author. I have an adorable mini Schnauzer and more books than I have room for. I love reading romance because no matter what may be happening in my life, I can always count on my books to end happily ever after. The day I met my husband was the day I truly began believing in happily ever after. After hearing me complain a few too many times that I had “nothing” to read despite the hundreds of paperbacks scattered around the house, my husband began suggesting I write my own stories. When I finally took his advice I discovered that although I enjoy my day job as a software engineer, my true calling is to be an author.

My sister drilled into me an appreciation for fantasy and mythology, something I try to bring to my books. My debut novel, Breaking the Nexus started as a book written for NaNoWriMo and has grown to so much more. It was the conduit that introduced me to a fantastic group of independent authors who have changed my life in unimaginable ways.

When I’m not writing, I’ve found a passion for blogging and interviewing fellow authors. I also love reading, baking, crochet, sewing sock monkeys, playing video games, and all sorts of random crafts. I have an incurable love of rubber duckies and stuffed animals, and I believe nobody should have to grow up if they don’t want.

Cover Reveal for Lindsay Avalon’s ‘Waking the Phoenix’!

Welcome to the official cover reveal of Waking the Phoenix, book 2 in the Mythrian Realm series! Waking the Phoenix is the highly anticipated follow up to Breaking the Nexus, which released on 12/12/12. While there is no official release date set, Waking the Phoenix will be out early this summer!

In the meantime, Lindsay will be releasing Warrior Unleashed, a novella featuring Sha’s half brother, a panther Chimerae (shifter) named Achaius. Be sure to look for that this April! Without further ado, I present the gorgeous cover designed by Blue Harvest Creative!

 

Blurb:

As the Nexus continues to break down, evil threatens the Mythrian and Human Realms. Millennia ago, only the sacrifice of the Great Phoenix was enough to imprison Ferren, a blood mage with the power to destroy the Human Realm. When the Nexus falls, his prison will shatter and he will be free to walk the earth once more, leaving a path of destruction in his wake.

Chaos engulfs the Mythrian and Human Realms as Ferren fights to escape his prison. Connor and Sha must race against time to find the last of the phoenixes before all is lost. There’s just one problem: the phoenixes have lain dormant for thousands of years. Can they stay alive long enough to save their world?

The key to saving the Realms lies in waking the phoenix.

Don’t miss the first book, Breaking the Nexus, available now on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and in paperback!

Breaking the Nexus will be on SALE for $2.99 March 8-11 only!

Sunday Snippet of ‘Hawke & the Beast’

This weekend’s snippet will come from the Anthology I did with Miranda Stork, Lindsay Avalon and Tara S. Wood, called ‘Once Upon A Twisted Time’. If you haven’t read this dark collection of adult fairy tales yet – you can grab your copy HERE on Amazon.

 

Hawke & the Beast

 

A horrible screeching filled the house, and as Jasper was ripped from his sleep, he was certain for just a moment that a demon was screaming at the foot of his bed. The instant he flicked on his bedside lamp, the sound ceased. Rubbing sleep from one eye and then the other, he peered into the dark corners of the room, and caught a slight movement to the right of his bed.

“What the-“, he began to speak then bit his tongue, realizing a little late that it was the owl making clicking sounds with its talons as she walked slowly on his wood flooring, and not some hellish creature spewing fire and eternal damnation.

She screeched again, softer this time, before clicking back across the room, and through the open doorway, leaving him tangled in his covers, his mouth agape and sleep still crusting the corners of his eyes.

“I’m not feeding you again!” He shouted toward the living room.

He winced as she screeched louder. Click-click-click-click-click. She paced noisily back and forth from one end of the living room to the other, protesting loudly each time she made it to the front door. The moon was bright, not quite full, but it allowed enough light in through his windows that he could see the bird clearly as he rested against his bedroom door frame.

“Sorry, beautiful. You are stuck in the house for at least a week. Doctor’s orders, you know,” he said to the agitated bird. She turned her head fully around and glared at him thru slit eyes. Even in the dark of the night, those eyes were mesmerizing. Everything else about her screamed Barn Owl, but the eyes; he couldn’t get over how unique they were.

“Okay, look. Maybe in a few days I’ll let you out for just a bit, okay?”

The owl shook her head and then burrowed it deeply into her feathers, leaving only her heart-shaped face visible. After shifting on her feet a few times, she began to close her eyes. You really are beautiful, he thought as he climbed back into bed. He didn’t bother to turn the light off.

BREAKING the NEXUS…

 

Throughout history, myths and legends of extraordinary creatures have been told and retold. Fantastic tales of demons and banshees, gryphons and dragons, and of course, magic. Stories that every child grows to learn are nothing more than fantasy…or are they?

A magical barrier erected millennia ago to separate the two realms, it has stood the test of time. Until now.

For Mythrian Sha Phoenix, magic is nothing new. But when she stumbles upon a portal on the verge of collapse, her fate will forever change. Pulled through the portal into the Human Realm, she lands in the middle of Detective Connor Flynn’s brutal murder scene. Soon it is obvious someone is using blood magic to try to bring
down the Nexus. Together, Connor and Sha must work to unravel the secrets before the barrier falls and the realms collide.
