Back Cover Blurb:

The wondrous world of Prav is torn between the machinations of the evil goddess Morfraeda, with her legions of demons and monsters, and the pernicious gods of Yav. It is world plagued by the malice of dragons, insatiable magical beasts, and the schemes of the avaricious and prideful. Goblins prowl in the wilds, secret societies vie for supremacy, and dragons struggle to reclaim their lost dominion over the mortals they hate. An unlikely duo, an assassin and her mark, are forced to confront nefarious political schemes, magical beasts, dark elves, and a nine-year-old girl who could outwit them both, in order to liberate a cursed land from the clutches of the evil dragon, Azhdaya. Tiahna de Ru’el is a hardened killer, long grown callus to an uncaring and ugly world in which the only things that matter are coin and survival. Cedrick Devoncrow is a dragon slayer, torn between the nobility demanded by his order and the birthright he secretly desires. Forsaken by the gods, Cedrick returns to his home and birthright only to find it cursed and abandoned as though it were a mirror of his very soul. Tiahna waits in plain sight to kill him, but her heart desires something else entirely. Together can they overcome the destructive habits of their hearts to find love and nobility despite their mortal foibles, or will Cedrick’s childhood home be swallowed by the abyss of hell?

Having broken off from the other continents two hundred and sixty million years ago, the landmass known as Finback Isle has protected a unique ecosystem in the equatorial Pacific older than the dinosaurs themselves.

And then Ibrahim Fawal, a native of Casablanca turned controversial new Chief of Police in Los Angeles, decided to establish his private winter getaway there.

Enter Abdullah and Monique Kalua, a daring husband-and-wife team of FBI agents sent to investigate the LAPD’s accelerated record of corruption and brutality under Fawal’s leadership, including the shooting of Monique’s own brother. Their mission is to penetrate Fawal’s secret lair and bring him to justice.

Format: ebook (mobi or epub)

Back Cover Blurb:

The Destroyer is coming to Asgard. All will fall. All will burn…

Loki thrives on danger, but when he’s struck by a painful vision of ash and death he knows his fun has run out. The Destroyer is real and isn’t taking prisoners.

Refusing to have his life obliterated by some stuffy prophecy, all Loki wants is to save Asgard. But the gods stand in his way. They don’t trust the “Trickster.”

To prove himself, he must return to the side of the man he wanted to forget. Odin, his blood brother and a first rate con.

When he meets a mortal woman, his plans hit a snag.

Sigyn is delightfully stubborn and quick with a blade. She also, inexplicably, possesses a divine element found only in a god.

As Loki falls for her, he never expects it to fulfill the prophecy threatening all their lives. 

Forced to choose between betraying Odin and protecting the woman he loves, Loki must face all he never wanted.

...But the truth changes everything.

Novel Title: Strands of Existence 1: Island Girl
Genre: Fantasy (high/epic, with romance woven in the mix)
Length: about 400 pages / 114 000 words
Format: ebook

Back Cover Blurb:
As an opportunist, Istrae yearns to get off her home island and visit Kerth, the City of Light and Abundance. Her preferred method of travel, however, didn’t include drowning. And she didn’t expect the City to be so dirty. Her memories are as broken as her body. She begins to piece them together with the help of a spirit bound to a statue and an ambitious army captain called Rime she enjoys teasing. As Rime guides Istrae in her new life, it becomes evident the rigid rules of society and the City’s Temple do not welcome those who seek to shake the established rules, which is something Istrae is incapable of resisting.

How Many Copies Available for Reviewers: I'll gift ebooks to interested people via Amazon, so no limit for now.

Stipulations: I'm looking to get reviews on Amazon, but you are free to publish the review somewhere else as well. It's your text and opinion. You can lend the ebook to a friend for a limited time if Kindle lets you (it should as I haven't put any restrictions in).

Also, just to be upfront. I'm not a native English speaker, so please check the preview on Amazon to decide if you want to take me up on the offer. I studied English translation in Uni (and it's my current profession). Still, I thought it would be fair to mention it. If you check the Amazon UK store, you can see one review there already if that helps you to decide whether you want to try your luck with fantasy written by a Finnish person  ;D

Novel Title: The Chocolate Prophecy
Genre: Epic Fantasy (some self-conscious parody styling)
Length: 654 pages
Format: E-book and Paperback
Back Cover Blurb:

Enter the life of Jek - a humble lighthouse steward scratching out a living on the southern coast of Jast-Madiir. Along with his wife (whose name is Aaliyah… or was it Audrey?), Jek must daily meet the expectations of an iron-fisted dictatorship, a global dragon-Inquisition, and a clerical order of flying jellyfish-like creatures churning out new surveys at a dizzying pace. All-in-all, a fairly predictable tedium. But when any little demerit on his next inspection could cost him his life, it can be hard sometimes to keep from stressing out...

Of course, if Jek knew half the things at play just beyond his sleepy shores, he would be very stressed indeed. Neighboring Tophthaera is reeling under the Twin Queens’ civil war. To the north, insurrection threatens to claim the island of Maenea for the cause of “Free-Dome” – a very strange and unsettling new ideology. Even the stable nations must decide how to deal with the recent, accidental discovery of magic. And all the while, the threat of Onyxadon’s inevitable return clouds every counsel. Only the strength and wisdom of the Grand Inquisitor would seem adequate to avail against these many calamities. But he has been dormant for seventy-five years now...

Jek is, at best, dimly aware of such things… and perhaps better suited than anyone to be an ineffectual bystander anyway. But those luxuries are burst quite suddenly when he meets a crotchety old sailor man, only to be swept into a hair-brained Noble Quest to find the Knights of the Indigo Lodge, expose a secret Doom Fleet, and unravel the dreaded mystery of Proconsul Zedulon’s infamous “Chocolate Prophecy.”

How Many Copies Available for Reviewers: None currently; should have some paperback copies available in about a week; e-book goes for $1.99 on Amazon:


Stipulations: Written at a fairly high reading level, but no content advisory material besides good-old-fashioned violence. I know it's really long, but there are dividends attached to that. It may be part of a larger series, but I didn't leave the first volume without a big finish.
