The way home becomes more complicated, as he’s caught up in an assassination plot, and the swirling political undercurrents of this fantastical world threaten Tom’s life in ways he never knew possible.

Nicholas Stone wakes in a pool of sweat. He dreamed a vision where his people are destroyed by the arrival of a foreign army under the cover of darkness. The peaceful country of Hohala is in danger.

The gods forbid bloodshed, so the king calls for an evacuation, leaving Nicolas demanding they defend themselves. He will not abandon his homeland. Unable to convince the king, Nicolas consults the gods in a forbidden land for help, but instead finds an unlikely ally: an infant dragon. In the wilderness, they create an unshakable bond, and soon it becomes clear that the creature is turning into a formidable weapon.

Armed with his new friend, the Hohala princess, and a traitor from the ranks of the enemy, Nicolas must find a way to drive out the ravishing Volcarons before they tear down everything he loves.

On the capital planet of the Kajian Empire, Atae learns what life is like as a half-breed.

Unable to shift into the dangerous, animalistic form called Battle Beasts like the purebred Kaji, Atae has to learn other ways to fight to graduate the Academy and win the Tournament, and with that, her citizenship.

But when waiting for a routine training session, Atae is attacked by a ruthless mercenary, pushing back her training by weeks while creating a rift inside her, turning into a new shifting ability unknown to her people. Desperate to keep it secret, Atae continues with her training, all the while knowing that if she’s discovered, she’ll be pulled from the Tournament…or worse.

If she doesn’t learn to control her new powers, she might not make it to the big event, much less survive it.

If you enjoy engrossing world building and white-knuckled fantasy adventure, you’ll love Kaji Warriors: Shifting Strength.

They must save the realm…if they don’t destroy it first.

Everyone in the castle is slowly dying. Built on bedrock, the ancient castle of Wichsault is surrounded by a black, raging sea and a primeval forest. Alien insects, the Chomites, have destroyed the neighboring village of Mournburn, the castle’s only source of food. Now a dark cloud capable of rotting flesh and stone creeps from the tree line.

Morwen, a malevolent warlock, is charged with looking after the sick, but she’d rather poison them than listen to their constant moaning. Before the occupation, the captain of the guard and Morwen’s future brother-in-law, Goron, drank himself into oblivion and chased anything in a skirt. Now they realize they must work together to not only save the castle, but stay alive in the process.

Joined by a cowardly ranger hunted by his past and a demon who eats anybody and anything, this unlikely group of heroes will soon discover what they’re truly up against.

If you enjoy elaborate worlds and sword and sorcery adventure, then you’ll love this page-turning fantasy by Simon McHardy.

When Meg and Brekken find a mysterious flyer hanging in the entryway of a record store, they consider it their ticket to a better life. It’s advertised as a game—enter a door, find an object, and collect the prize money. Simple as that.

But when each door turns out to be a portal to another world, things get complicated fast. Once she encounters a magician, an evil king, and a mystical Tree of Life, paying her way through college with the prize money are now the least of her worries. Joined by Carter, the quarterback of the football team back in her own world, Meg is forced to navigate her feelings for him while trying to stay alive.

A simple game turns into a secret society initiation, but Meg might not realize it until it’s too late.

If you enjoy fantasy stories with high stakes of love and adventure, indulge in Heather Kindt’s The Green Door.
