Kirith Kirin

Kirith Kirin is like no other fantasy that you have ever read.
Jim Grimsley has created a fantasy that could have come right from our world where power and greed can tempt, and sometimes conquer, even the most rightist person and where knowing who your friends and enemies are can be very difficult if not impossible. Yet it is not our world. For in Kirith Kirin’s world magic is real, immortals walk the land, and people are sometimes the playthings for the dark arts.
The Blue Queen, upon resuming the throne while King Kirith Kirin’s eternality is renewed in the Arthen forest, has partnered with a magician of the dark arts. No longer does she need to leave the throne to renew her eternal nature. Swayed by promises of the dark magician, she has claimed the throne forever and is extending her influence to the far corners of the world.
Malleable grey clouds, sidewinding wind, and intelligent lightning bolts made the trip across the vast Girdle nearly impossible. Out of nowhere, the Blue Queen’s Patrols made haste to kill the boy and the warrior before they could safely reach the deep forest of Arthen. Riding upon two magnificent stallions, one a royal Prince out of Queen Mnemarra, Jessex and his uncle Sivisal reached Arthen despite a deadly storm that reeked of magic.
Thus begins Jessex’s new life as he enters Arthen and moves into the royal court of Kirith Kirin.

Kinky Bones

A wizards worst nightmare had come to pass—my computer beeped at me. The night degenerated as we discovered all our hard-earned, some would say ill-gotten, gains had been hijacked. Then it turned hellish as witches entered the scene. Soon I’m trying to ignore the smell of patchouli and stop myself getting involved in business I have no right, or desire, to become involved in. But what’s a poor wizard to do when a sexy witch in too little leather and too much jewelry asks nicely? Yeah, I said no, fat lot of good it did me. />Now I’m stuck in the middle of warring factions, and if I don’t pull a rabbit from the magic hat soon, friends, family, and even enemies will die. Little did I realize, my misplaced loyalty and heroics would get me killed. It’s an occupational hazard, but even wizards run out of luck eventually. Oh, and there’s the small matter of the Kinky Bones, but that comes later. Hi, I’m Arthur ‘The Hat’ Salzman. A bit overwhelmed, to be honest.

The Kingmaker

The Kingmaker by Brian Haig
In the worst case of treason in U.S. history, General William Morrison has been charged with a breathtaking array of crimes. Oddsmakers give Sean Drummond zero chance of saving his client from a death sentence. However, his obligation runs deeper than simply professional: Morrison’s wife, a CIA executive, has begged Sean to save her husband, and Drummond doesn’t want to disappoint his old flame. Despite ever-more-damning intelligence leaks that paint Morrison as worse than Bene- dict Arnold, Drummond bulls ahead and comes to suspect that this simple case of treason is actually a chess game being played at the highest levels by the best and brightest-one in which Morrison is merely a pawn.
Author Biography: Brian Haig is the author of two previous novels that feature Sean Drummond- Secret Sanction and Mortal Allies. He lives in Pennington, New Jersey.

Kingdoms of Light

INSIDE THE RAINBOW! Evil, sadistic (and badly socialized) goblins have destroyed the pastoral kingdom of the Gowdlands. Blasting the land’s greatest wizard into cinders, they cursed it with a dark hex no mortal can break.

They’ll need all their new abilities to save the Gowdlands. Because together the six must cross the Kingdoms of Light, realms where polychrome perils and multihued menaces await. For only they have the power to fight the coming of a black force that will annihilate all light… and all life.

King of Foxes

Young Tal Hawkins was the only survivor of the massacre of his village — rescued, recruited, and trained by the mysterious order of magicians and spies, the Conclave of Shadows. Already exceptionally skilled in swordsmanship, he has since developed into one of the secret society’s most valuable agents, keeping ever alert for the opportunity to arise when he can avenge the craven slaughter of his family and friends.
That time is now.
Posing as a nobleman from the distant Kingdom of the Isles, he gains entrance into the court of the Duke of Olasko, the bloodthirsty and powerful despot whose armies put Tal’s village to the sword. But the enemy is cunning and well protected — in league with the foul necromancer Leso Varen, dark master of death-magic — and to gain the Duke’s trust and confidence, Tal Hawkins must first sell his soul.
Only by swearing an oath of allegiance to his hated nemesis can Tal hope to get close enough to kill the Duke and bring his empire crashing down. But the tyrant demands that his new acolyte prove his loyalty with blood. Sent off to do his “master’s” malevolent bidding — each depraved mission more odious than the last — the Talon of the Silver Hawk faces a spirit-crushing dilemma. Only through evil can his vengeance succeed, yet his alternatives are more terrible still: madness, torture, damnation, and a slow, lingering death in the Fortress of Despair.

King Hereafter

**’A storyteller who could teach Scheherazade a thing or two about pace, suspense and imaginative invention’***New York Times*
**THE REAL MACBETH . . . **
It is the eleventh century and in the isles of Orkney a young boy is born. He is named Thorfinn, baptized as Macbeth. To the north are the warring Vikings and south lies Alba – the Scottish mainland. Orkney is the prize in between, and an unlikely place from which a young man might launch a bid as ruler of a united Scotland.
Yet Thorfinn is unlike other men. He has a warrior’s courage and the wiliness of the underdog. By his side stands his wife Groa, as shrewd and valiant as her husband. Together they will navigate the treacherous waters of the new millennium, uniting a divided nation and birthing a legend that will survive a thousand years.
**Thorfinn Macbeth will be King Hereafter . . .**
**’Stunning’ ***Washington Post*
**
### Review
“A storyteller who could teach Scheherazade a thing or two.” –**The New York Times**
“One of the greatest tale-spinners since Dumas.” –**Cleveland Plain Dealer**
### From the Inside Flap
Back in print by popular demand–“A stunning revelation of the historical Macbeth, harsh and brutal and eloquent.” –Washington Post Book World.
With the same meticulous scholarship and narrative legerdemain she brought to her hugely popular Lymond Chronicles, our foremost historical novelist travels further into the past. In King Hereafter, Dorothy Dunnett’s stage is the wild, half-pagan country of eleventh-century Scotland. Her hero is an ungainly young earl with a lowering brow and a taste for intrigue. He calls himself Thorfinn but his Christian name is Macbeth.
Dunnett depicts Macbeth’s transformation from an angry boy who refuses to accept his meager share of the Orkney Islands to a suavely accomplished warrior who seizes an empire with the help of a wife as shrewd and valiant as himself. She creates characters who are at once wholly creatures of another time yet always recognizable–and she does so with such realism and immediacy that she once more elevates historical fiction into high art.

Killing the Deep State

The truth behind how well-funded hard-left extremists, the mainstream media, and Obama/Clinton holdovers in the government bureaucracy have combined with clandestine forces within the US intelligence apparatus – the “Deep State” — to block and undermine Trump’s every move. At 2:45 a.m. ET on Nov. 8, 2016, television networks announced to a stunned nation that Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral had gone for Donald Trump, making him the president-elect of the United States, defying all odds in a surreal victory that sent the Deep State into an immediate sense of panic. By dawn on Nov. 9, 2016, the Deep State forces that expected Hillary Clinton to continue the leftist politics of Barack Obama were already planning Donald Trump’s demise. What emerged from the hard left was a political strategy calculated to block Donald Trump from being inaugurated, and if that failed, to make sure Donald Trump would not long serve out his term as 45th President of the United States. Investigative journalist and conspiracy expert Jerome Corsi goes into shocking detail about how this Deep State or Shadow Government secretly wields power in Washington, and why the Deep State is dangerous – capable of assassinating Trump, if efforts to impeach him or to force him to resign fail. Corsi will also define a three-point strategy Trump — as a political independent, opposed both by Democratic Party enemies and GOP establishment — must employ to stay in office and have a chance of a successful first term in office.

Caught between his loyalty to Sherry and his debt to his fellow ex-cop, Max’s search for the truth will take him back to the streets of Philadelphia, where he will dig into his fellow officer’s troubled past . . . only to come face-to-face with his own.
