This a fantastic fantasy roller coaster adventure!

The Flight of the Griffin

Living in their old boat `The Griffin' five young characters become the unlikely heroes at the end of time when a burglary sets them on the path to finish the `Last great Spell' - a spell to stop the balance of the
World tipping into Chaos...

They become the Magician, Thief, Priest and Fighter when a magical book guides them upon a quest that pits them against magic, demons and `The Hawk,' an evil hunter of men.

Join a race against time to find three crystal skulls that must be brought together, while all the forces of Chaos try everything to stop them.

Download a sample and late at night when you can't seem to find that "just right" book to read check the samples out. See if you like their flavor.

Cinders - The True Legend - £1.23

Review from US site:
5.0 out of 5 stars - Absolutely FABULOUS!!!!!, January 16, 2012
By Regina LoBiondo ""Gina"" (Havertown, PA USA)
One of the best books I've read in a long time. The author takes the traditional tale of Cinderella and reinvents it, adding elements of magic and the dark arts. I couldn't put this down and highly recommend it!!!!!

Thanks for looking

A few of my favourites - The Serpent in the Glass (The Tale of Thomas Farrell) Mythology, gripping story.
The Dark Lord's Handbook Funny, dark, unusual.
Few Are Chosen (The K'Barthan Trilogy) and The Wrong Stuff, K'Barthan Trilogy: Part 2 - very engaging, exciting story.
The Man From U.N.D.E.A.D. - The Curious Case Of The Kidnapped Chemist and The Man From U.N.D.E.A.D. - Zombie Apocalypse Now A series featuring the fabulous Agent Ward.
And a thread on fantasy wouldn't be complete for me without Words to the Wise: Book One (The Awakening) and Words to the Wise: Book Two (Towards Darker Climes). Dark and delicious. I have been absorbed into the author's tale and I can't get out. Help, I'm a prisoner in Words to the Wise!

The Mystic Accountants (The Banned Underground)

Join the quest for the magical toilet. watch as Mad Monks invade wales,(one proof of their insanity).

Fall off your chair laughing, and make an author's fantasy a reality

Apparently we have customers in common!
I glanced at my page Swords for a Dead Lady and there was your book under "Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed"

Look on the bright side, they might have purchased both

I bet they did...

Well at the very least it's pushed the thread to the top of the heap, a worthy objective in itself.

Mwah ha ha hahargh our evil plans are working... I've just gone to look at your book, Jim, and then on to mine to check for reviews so you'll have a well odd listing there now!

I read about three pages of your sample and it's definitely lingering in my head so even though it's four quid, blimey, I hardly ever pay more than about £3 tops for an e-book. Even so, I think I'm going to end up buying it. Because I want to find out what happens to your 50 year old lothario with the sore back. Phnark.

Cheers

Maybe our sense of humour is spreading.

Slowly, like a dripping tap.

I reckon, it's pretty insiduous, after all...

Isn't there a cream for that?

There's just been a coup in my kitchen.

Well I returned the favour and with The Amulet of Kings (The Banned Underground Book 1) and The Wrong Stuff, K'Barthan Series: Part 2 - ebook (The K'Barthan Trilogy) it did strike me that we do have quite a bit in common. I did like both of the above, and the opening of Unlucky Dip or Prequel to Few Are Chosen, K'Barthan Trilogy 1 (The K'Barthan Trilogy) , genuinely impressed me as a piece of work. it really drew me in.

Genuine Action and dry humour always works for me.

Is it a chicken coup?

In reply to an earlier post on 18 Apr 2012 22:30:39 BDT
Rather thought that in the spat with the colonials. I think we've actually made a few friends there, Jim. Seems that there were a lot of people lurking who agreed with us, but didn't want to say so...

I'll leave that thread alone now, though.

Jim! Kissy kissy! (sorry just in case you didn't know I should explain, at this point, that I'm a girl). Thank you. Your start reminds me slightly of Lexi Revellian's Torbrek...and the Dragon Variation (The Torbrek Trilogy). It'll take me a while to get round to it but I'm definitely looking forward to Swords for a Dead Lady.

By the way, I hope K'Barthan 2 will stand on it's own. You might get a bit lost without reading Few Are Chosen, K'Barthan Trilogy: Part 1. I hate to say that because it sounds like I'm just after more of your hard earned cash - but on the upside, Amazon are price matching it at the moment so it's only 73p.... 120,000 words for less than the 4,000 word short.

Cheers

It strikes me that we're from less 'fashionable' parts of the UK, I wonder if this is reflected in the humour. But yes, We've flagged some great fantasy reads and ought to let other worthy writers get their sixpennyworth in

I used to do stand up in London, surely that makes me incredibly trendy... er hem... 20 years ago. Ah yes. Now I see what you mean.

PS Jim, four quid or not I bought your book.

I hope the washing machine is safe.

At this point, you're a girl. So at what point were you intended to change, or do you just cycle through various sexes as whim takes you ;-))
Torbrek looks interesting, it's more 'fantasy' whilst mine is more 'real' (two meaningless terms struggling to define concepts) but none the better or worse for that ;-)

Bought the book, no girl this but a veritable angel, a paragon, an exemplar of all that is generous and good. That such should still exist in this fallen age
