HOUNDS OF LIGHT – Book Launch!

Hounds of LightIt’s here at long last, the sequel to Hounds of God (and on the same day as the launch of the book 1 Audiobook) – HOUNDS OF LIGHT.

Take some magic, add some werewolves and vampires, and you’ve got yourself my new book. BAM!

Hope you all enjoy it 😉

Hounds of Light – Book Description

A dark temple of vampires. An army of werewolves. One woman to stand against them all.

Katherine thought that by taking on the leader of the Hounds of God, she’d be done with them. She didn’t know that the werewolf influence had spread deep throughout the country, and maybe the world.

Hunting down werewolves is one thing, but when a dark vampire comes calling, they find they must seek help.

Will Katherine and her new clan of two werewolves and a half-vampire be enough to take on such levels of evil?

The Book Description:

When his brother vanishes, Narcel is next in line to rule his city, but only wants a simple life with the girl he loves.

Little does he know, the heavens have greater plans for him. He’s taken from his village and forced to fight for a neighboring clan, but when war breaks out in the land of Braze, he must choose sides between the family he knew as a boy and the brothers in arms he’s formed as a man.

Forced to become the warrior he never wanted to be, torn from everything he thought he knew about life, Narcel builds the courage to set things right. But his actions propel him and his lands into an inescapable path toward war and destruction.

This omnibus edition contains almost 700 pages of epic military fantasy adventure, political backstabbing, and warfare. It includes Land of Gods, Retribution Calls, and Tears of Devotion.

Michael La Ronn’s OLD DARK – The Last Dragon Lord

51qfGQkjZ6LHave you checked out Michael La Ronn’s new novel OLD DARK yet? It’s the first book in The Last Dragon Lord dark fantasy series, and is definitely worth checking out if you like fantasy and dragons.

Aside from it being an awesome book, why should my readers care? Because Michael and I have a dark Urban Fantasy book coming soon! A trilogy, actually, so you might as well start getting to know him now – you’ll be hearing a lot more about him!

The Book Description: 

Old Dark is a viperous dragon lord who rules the world with an iron fist. For two hundred years he and his dragons have terrorized humans and elves, forcing them to pay tribute or die.

There’s a deadly conspiracy brewing. And if he doesn’t contain it, it will destroy him and everything he’s built.

But Dark was born to fight. There’s a reason the ancients called him Dark the Wicked…

Old Dark is the first book in the dark fantasy series The Last Dragon Lord. Readers who like the Age of Fire series and Smaug from the Lord of the Rings will enjoy this series.

Buy it here!

Old Dark (The Last Dragon Lord Book 1)

I could explain all that I love about the story in this book; however, if I was to do that I would give the whole thing away. So what I can say is that the story line kept me wanting more, at times I was in tears, and at other times I was laughing. also I can’t get enough of the Dragons view point, and cannot recall any other Novel that goes into this much detail, “Great Job”. I can also say that the story line reads from several view points, and keeps you hoping…. I mean that in a good way, When I finally had a chance to settle down and set myself to reading the book, I did not want to put it down. It only took me two days to read it, and I love the sneak preview of the next volume… I definitely want the chance to read it as well, and am looking forward to it with anticipation. I would recommend this book and I will be buying the next also. I received the chance to review this book at a discounted cost for my honest opinion.

Unofficial Minecraft Fiction with Pirates and Ninjas

mc_book1_test4Does anyone out there like Unofficial Minecraft fiction? Since working on Minecraft Story Mode at Telltale Games, I’ve been reading a lot of this stuff to see what kids are into — the books are EVERYWHERE, and supposedly sell quite well.

So I thought I’d share this really cool one – the first in a series, that works for lovers of Minecraft AND people who don’t know anything about it.

It’s got pirates, adventure, and rumor has it NINJAS will show up. All fun stuff 🙂

Here’s the book description on Amazon, where it’s on preorder for $0.99 or get it #FREE on #Instafreebie (by signing up for the newsletter)

Retribution Calls

Retribution CallsIf you’ve been waiting for an awesome fantasy series with amazing book covers, here it is! So much fantasy is based on Europe, so I wanted to do what George RR Martin did with his series based on the Wars of the Roses, but with mine based on Ancient Greek wars between Sparta and Athens. Yes, I made it a fantasy world and fictionalized it, but you’ll see the influence.

I took the Martin route regarding magic too. For me, it’s more about the people and character – so book one has HINTS of magic (for the perceptive among you), book 2 a little bit more, and then book 3 (coming late July) comes out swinging with the fantasy aspects. I loved how Game of Thrones did this, but would have loved those books with even less magic — so that’s what I set out to do.

Hope you enjoy! You can buy it at the link below, or read most of my books, including this series, free with Kindle Unlimited. PS – the cover you see here is the final one. Amazon takes a few days to update, sometimes.





Terry Goodkind – The Sword of Truth

I finally started reading The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. A few people warned me away from it, saying it goes crazy directions. But I don’t care! I love it so far and I’m sticking with it.

It’s hard to find authors you love. For me there’s been a few lately, including George R.R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson, Will Wight, Patrick Rothfuss, and now Terry Goodkind in fantasy. I also have a tendency to enjoy authors of younger fiction, such as Brandon Mull, Shannon Hale, and Maggie Stiefvater.

When I “discover” one of these authors, it makes my day. So I’ll keep sharing about their awesome work, and you keep letting me know about others I need to be reading. Thanks!

Great Amazon Review on Retribution Calls (Epic Fantasy)

covermockup2I love this review for my epic fantasy books Land of Gods and Retribution Calls.

Check out the review here!

5 Stars. 

“I really enjoyed the first two books. The visual experience I get from the book is sublime. I can imagine how every scene is made into a movie. Justin’s writing style reads easy and is descriptive enough (not overly done, as is sometimes the case in fantasy).

The mystical “North” had me mesmerized. I loved the scenery and their way of life. Amaris was a welcome addition and I like how the love triangle unravelled.

I enjoyed the first 2 books in the series and can’t wait for the third one!”
