About Amber Dalcourt
Amber V. Dalcourt is an author of non-romantic dark fantasy with Lovecraftian undertones.
Amber was convinced that her childhood home was haunted. Distorted visages made their presence known to those who dared stare into the hallway. In the basement, the voice of an elderly man sowed confusion and discord. These experiences and more left a lasting impression and affected how she crafts the unsettling elements of her stories.
Drawing on her occult heritage to combat her fears, it was only natural that she'd fall in love with fantasy stories that focused on magic and all-powerful beings to thwart the darkest of evils. But magic solutions don't solve worldly problems…
Using the subtleties of human behavior to craft her demons, rituals, and magic systems, Amber is a lover of modern sorcery, psychological character portrayals, epic battles between good and evil and the huge grey area that separates them.
Nobody can forget The Awakening, but everybody remembers it differently.
The Awakening changed the face of reality itself - a cataclysm of dimensional proportions, unleashing all manner of demonic beasts upon the world of man. Now, only fractured remnants of humanity survive; locked in an endless battle against the forces of darkness.
In Awakening Fractured Memories, you’ll delve into the recollections of five pivotal characters in the realm of The Awakening – each reliving a foundational event that set them on the course toward turning back the tide of evil.
Venerable wizard Dezmond must revisit the tragedies of his past if he hopes to provide his granddaughter with a future. Academy athlete Seth needs to learn to bend the rules if he hopes to win a game of life-or-death. Scheming William develops an obsession with an ancient text, which threatens to turn his closest friends against him, while demon hunter Astral has to fight for her freedom from the very depths of Hell itself.
Finally, in the lair of mad scientist Mallik, an abominable chimera is unleashed – forging a twisted alliance and throwing everything Mallik thought he knew about demonic lore into question.
Fast-paced, tautly written, and rich with dream-like symbolism and visceral detail, Awaking Fractured Memories is a collection of five linked stories that will plunge you deep into A. V. Dalcourt’s The Awakening universe.
Fans of George R. R. Martin, Terry Brooks, and H. P. Lovecraft will love this collection of fast-paced, eerily visceral short stories.
All Beta releases have bugs – but in this program, they’ll try to kill you.
Academy All-Star Seth Wright was already less-than-enthusiastic about his role in the annual school play, broadcast nationwide in thrilling Virtual Reality – and that was before he discovered there was a glitch in the program hungry for his blood.
Now, Seth and the rest of the cast are trapped in a hyper-realistic swords-and-sorcery adventure – one that’s so realistic, the digital dogs, dragons, and dark wizards can kill you for real; faster than you can say “Game Over.”
With time running out, and the murderous glitch sending ever-more deadly enemies his way, Seth must reluctantly step into the role of hero and leader – and learn an important lesson if he’s to have any hope of saving his friends.
The Game: Beta Testing is a fast-paced dark fantasy adventure set in the Awakening Fractured Memories series by A.V. Dalcourt – filled with tension, emotion, and epic symbolism.
To secure his granddaughter’s future, he must return and face the nightmare of his past.
Dezmond Daamon never wanted to return to Daamon Manor – where a creature of fear and anguish devoured his wife and brother – but now duty demands it of him. It’s the only place he knows to keep his granddaughter safe from the demons that now plague the earth – and the only place he can prepare her to fight them.
But while state-of-the-art technology can keep the roaming demons out of the crumbling manor, there’s just one problem – it’ll also trap any abominations lurking there inside.
Abominations like the living Nightmare that robbed Dezmond of his wife.
Now, the venerable wizard is trapped within the confines of his family home – and finds himself stalked by a creature that conjures up fear and tragedy to devour its prey.
For Dezmond to have any hope of survival, he’ll have to do what he’s spent decades avoiding – turn inward, and face the pain and anguish of his past.
