The Envisage

By M.M. Warren

Without early memories or a family to tell her who she is, Andelyn instinctively knows that her life is in constant flux because she is hiding from someone dangerous and impossible to identify. When strangers kidnap her, Andelyn’s only way to escape is on an abandoned boat that rushes her through a secret underground river passage leading to Meridia, a mysterious land hidden inside the earth.

Buried deep within the walls of the palace there, Andelyn discovers a legend about the Envisage: a person with the uncanny power to save or destroy Meridia with their thoughts. But why doesn’t anyone seem to know who the Envisage is, and why are they so afraid to find out?

With the unresolved mystery of who she was running from in the first place, Andelyn begins to wonder if all of this could have something to do with her. Is she hiding from this Envisage that people seem so afraid to speak of? And why?

This much is clear: sometimes you risk more than your own fate when you find out who you are, especially if what you should have feared most is what you are capable of—and especially if fear changes everything.

The Cemetery Club

(Darcy & Flora Cozy Mystery Book 1)

By Blanche Day Manos and Barbara Burgess

Goshen Cemetery lay quiet and peaceful under a benevolent spring sky. Darcy Campbell and her mother, Flora Tucker, had no inkling that in a few moments, the scene would change and they would face a horror on the ground and a threat from above, beyond their imaginations.

Becoming entangled in a centuries-old legend, being targeted by a group of ruthless men, and discovering a long-lost love were not in Darcy’s plans when she returned to her birth place, Levi, Oklahoma. She merely wanted to soak up the peace of her mother’s home and try to heal the wounds left from her husband’s death. Fate, however, had other plans for Darcy and Flora.
