A Burning Hope

by Mathias G. B. Colwell

Grim and isolated, The Fortress sits upon its island. It is not nearly as impenetrable as the Ruling Council would like. With its walls of wood and stone, and its high watchtowers scanning the dismal swamp, it is the last line of defense for the humans against a dark and dangerous world. The only other protection for mankind are the Slayers, a magic-infused fighting force sent into the murky waters outside the city to hunt the denizens of the swamp.

However, there is a sinister element to the magic used to compel the Slayers into their combat partnerships. The dirty underbelly of society, the poor, the destitute, and most of all the criminals are forced to undergo the Binding and daily face death. They are an army of slaves.

A Burning Hope is the tale of one man defying his own desperate circumstances, as for the first time in his life he dares to hope and dream. It is the story of a Slayer named Maeze and his fight to regain control of his destiny and live the life of freedom he desires.

Silk Slippers and Tutus

A Matt Murphy Mystery – Book Three

by H. Paul Doucette

Being a Private Detective in Greenwich Village has its ups and downs. Sometimes a case comes through the door that sends you into the world behind the facade and into the shadows where the darker side of human nature resides, even a world one thinks of as the epitome of beauty.

There are fewer areas of art where such beauty is as wondrously presented than in the world of ballet. Or, at least, one would think so.

New York is famous for many things including for being a center of culture, so when a young dancer from Montreal is given an opportunity to debut in a new ballet choreographed by a brilliant rising star, she happily accepts. However, a shadow follows her from Montreal to the Big Apple.

Murphy is approached by a dance studio owner who has been chosen to open a ballet with this young ballerina as the principal dancer. It seems that her studio has been experiencing a number of ‘odd’ accidents and she is concerned that there may be something a bit more sinister going on.

As Murphy looks into these accidents, he slowly enters into the darker side to this world. A world of egos, jealousies, rivalries, sexual encounters, embittered betrayals and revenge.

To complicate his life even more, his friend Crazy Pete is brutally attacked and he goes after the ones responsible.
