S.A. Bolich
Who Mourns For The Hangman by S.A. Bolich

John Burton or “Scraggy” as he is most commonly known makes his living as a Hangman. Unlike others of his trade who enjoy tormenting their “victims” (the accused criminals), Scraggy became a Hangman out of his disgust for their treatment and his morals that even the worst criminals deserve a little respect upon their death. Who Mourns for the Hangman is the story of just one of his many jobs, but one that will shake him to his core.

Tamara Siler Jones
Ghosts in the Snow by Tamara Siler Jones

In the mood for a good murder mystery, perhaps one with a surprisingly high body count and of the dark fantasy persuasion? If so then look no further then Ghosts in the Snow by Tamara Siler Jones. Dubric Bryerly, castellan of Castle Fladorrah, heads this stunningly intense thriller that seamlessly combines forensics and dark magic in a medieval world rich in its own history.

Jennifer Greylyn
The Book Thief by Jennifer Greylyn (Beneath Ceaseless Skies : Volume 30)

Hope… surely a strange title for a book, an intriguing title, perhaps one that you would have to pick up and read? That decision is what our protagonist is faced with in this unique tale of a dead mage, his book, and the man who happens to pick it up. An entertaining read to say the least complete with magic, mystery and the depths one will go for knowledge and extending his own life.
