Description:
In the history of the Tantalarian people, The Tribunal Elder is the only one who ever stood up to the Tribunal. He did that when he was a Tribune, and managed to live to eventually lead it. He had disagreed with a decision the counsel made and acted on it. In protest; he cut off his ceremonial braid and threw the discarded plait onto the floor at The Elder’s feet, and refused to ever wear a braid again. His action was considered an insult, to the Elder of that time, as well as the Tribunal. The spirit of the man, who was, still lives in the ruler who is now.

The Tribunal Elder has lived through more millennium than he cares to think about. He is not the type to shirk his duties. He is a force to recon with; yet he is known to be a kind man. To settle a dispute between the Martians and the Human settlers, he is being forced to take the mother ship that they had arrived on Tantalus with many eons before back into space. This, he is not happy about.

The message from the Martians is clear, remove the settlers from the surface of their planet, or they will die. The Tribunal Elder soon discovers there is more to this than those who are command know about, for the act that precipitated this action had multiple events. Someone is working in the background, manipulating forces, to create a power struggle between the two species.

Will he allow the Tantalarians to be pulled into a conflict that they have and want nothing to do with?

 

 

Review:

Intercession by M.A. Abraham is the 4th book in her Tantalus series.   M. A. Abraham once again gives us an exciting and tense story as we return to the world of Tantalus.  Intercession picks up shortly after the last book ended. A brief refresher of the premise of Tantalus: This is a Sci-Fi story about two species (Humans & Tantalarians) that are forced to work together on the planet Tantalus.

The Tribunal Elder has been requested to go to Mars and remove the human settlers who live there or all humans will be killed.  He gathers a team made up of Tantalarians and human leaders who have migrated nicely in Tantalus.   The purpose is to find out the what and why causing this issue.  The Elder wants only mated men, as the Sirens from Mars are known to use their ability to get what they want by using alluring spells; and the mated men are immune to those spells.  He also wants Terec & Adele (our previous book heroes) to come, especially since Adele has the ability to read people and able to see if they are lying.

When they arrive in Mars, they are greeted by the Siren leader, as well as one of the woman warriors, who threaten them.  They are told that a few of the women are missing, and blame the human residents.   The Elder senses there is more to the story, and with his team they meet with the resident human leaders of various ships to discover what is happening.  Adele will make friends with Glynnis, one of the Siren females, who helps heal those who have been affected by sickness from contaminated water.   Adele and Gynnis will play a big part in helping fix the water, and learn the truth about what is happening.

What follows is a well written and excellent story line that will have the Elder, and the Tantalarians discover the issues, as well as stopping a dangerous revolt.  I loved meeting Echoes, a Siren princess, who was able to stop the revolution, and dictate punishment to those involved.  I loved Adele and Terec. I also enjoyed the surprise twist was also very nice. 

M.A. Abraham once again gives us an interesting, fun and different story line of the Tantalarians and Humans working together, as they try to diffuse the situation in Mars.  If you enjoy fantasy, aliens,  world building, then I suggest you start this series with the first book.

Kings of the Empire

Amazon / B&N / Kobo

Description:
The Empire is rising to face the enemy. They are not alone, for their allies and neighbors have come to help; some have even come to fight despite the judgment of their own rulers. No one knows the extent of what they will be facing.

The Drazon is free, the Demon Hordes are on the march, and their numbers are staggering. Will the Empire survive this challenge? Or will their enemies prevail? The stakes are high, for in failing to win the upcoming battles, the lives of every Elf in the Empire are in jeopardy.

As the Elves prepare for the fight, the Drazon attacks at will. He challenges the might of the Dragons. He feels invincible. Omnipotent. Immortal. He will show the world who is in charge and the meaning of fear. His hatred knows no boundary.

While King Lothrariel fights to hold his Empire and, the lives of his people together, he is besieged by problems. He turns to Gabriel, to handle the greatest tasks, and to resume his place as Commander in Chief of the Combined Elven Armies of the Empire. Lothrariel answers his Life Mate’s call, and soon finds there is more to her summons than their bond. As an Oracle, she holds the answers in the back of her mind, although she cannot speak them, she can only guide

 

 

Review:

Kings of the Empire by M.A. Abraham is the final book in her wonderful Elven Chronicles series.  I have followed this series and M.A. Abraham from the very beginning, where it all began.   After reading Kings of the Empire, I was sad that this was the end, and at the same time happy with the wonderful conclusion to this series.  M.A. Abraham blows us away with a wild, non-stop, thrilling, exciting finale that wows us with her seamless flow, especially with the many characters, both new and those who have been with us from the start.  This will be a difficult review, as so much happens throughout the book that cannot be described unless you read it.  I will give a brief synopsis and tell you my over all thoughts. 

Almost everyone who has been part of this series makes an appearance.  When we last left off in the last book, we knew war was upon us.   The Drazon is now free to wreak havoc on the Elven empire, and the number of demon hordes is astronomical.  All the Kings come together to fight the Demons, but things are not looking good, as they are sorely outnumbered.   But never underestimate our elves, who have much magical power behind them to fight for their lives, but it will be at cost.  Constantly, throughout the book, and this is a big book, the battles rage all across the kingdoms.  Gabriel, Lothariel, Daroth, the other Kings, all our heroines,  and warriors, both and men and woman; new and old; come together to fight the odds.  The powerful Dragons will also come to try to stop the Drazon. As the casualties build up, on both sides, we are on the edge of our seats worrying who we will lose.

I loved seeing all of our favorites and there was sadness on those we lost. I was totally blown away on how M.A. Abraham was able to continue the flow of the battles, with so many characters.  An amazing feat.   I will say that all those characters, especially some new ones I hardly remember (that is me, not M.A.), became somewhat confusing.  But it did not stop me from understanding and knowing what was happening.  Nearer to the end of the book, I did become nervous about losing one of my favorites. I will not tell too much more, other than to say if you have read this series, you are in for fantastic adventure that had a great conclusion to a wonderful series.   We will miss our Elves.  Thank you M.A. Abraham for bringing us into your world of Elves, and your wonderful characters we have come to love.  Bravo!   Once again, if you have not read the Elven Chronicles series, I suggest you do so.

To celebrate our Anniversary, M.A. Abraham has given us an EXCLUSIVE COVER REVEAL for her new series. Coming in February, 2018,  The Goddess – Book 1 of The Guardians of the Empire Series.

The Goddess

Chania is an Elven Princess in hiding, and content to stay that way.  She has lived most of her life in seclusion. She was placed amongst the humans that had once come to the aid of her ancestors, many millenniums before. She kept secreted by the head priestess, and revered as a Goddess by the people. She knows she is not what they think she is.  She also knows there is war looming in the future for these people, and it is time for her people to return, so they can keep their word.

Daeron is an Elven/Dragon shapeshifter, who has served as second in command of the Guardians of the Elven Empire for a long time. He comes from a long line of Kings, and has proven himself worthy of his position of life. He is a proud, noble, Golden Dragon, when he is not an Elf. He is not so pleased with the sudden match making ambitions of his leader, he is not about to give in without a fight. He will not be used in this manner, not by anyone.

Captured by her father’s guardians and forced to his side, Chania, is no happier about her father’s idea than Daeron. They recognize the Life Bond they share, but under the circumstances, they refuse to allow it to dictate their future. Can they fight an attraction that no Elf has ever been able to deny?

Beyond the Myth by M.A. Abraham – Review & Giveaway

Beyond the Myth by M.A. Abraham – Review & Giveaway

Beyond the Myth Banner

 

Beyond the MythAmazon / B&N / Kobo

Description:
Darlene Stanton is an archeologist, born and raised in the field by her archeologist parents, along with her twin, Derek. They appear to have it all, fame and fortune, for they are top of their field. They are sought out for their expertise in the field and the prestige they bring to each job they do, which is why they have been hired to check out the myth and island where it originated. There is more to the myth than they expect.

Blond and beautiful, Darlene has hidden herself behind her work and an icy shield that is meant to keep people at bay. She discovers more than she can handle when they get caught up in the reality of the myth on the site she is working on with her brother.

Atl is one of the leader’s sons, and he wants nothing more than to marry his childhood sweetheart, until he meets Darlene. She is beautiful, spirited, and nearly more than he can handle in the beginning. She is also suffering from shock from all the changes she has been forced to face in the few days before they met.

Ripped from her home planet, forced into a relationship, and lifestyle that is totally alien to everything she knows, Darlene fights to regain some form of stability in her life, while Derek settles into their new lifestyles without a problem. It doesn’t help when the handsome man who owns her is so charismatic that she can barely keep her hands off of him. She knows he didn’t want her anymore than she does him, but there is nothing either of them can do to change things. How is she to face the reality of her life, beyond the myth?

 

Review:

Beyond the Myth by M.A. Abraham is a standalone Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel.  Darlene and Derek Stanton, brother and sister twins, are world renown archeologists.  They are famous, rich and always in demand; but they are selective and expensive in accepting jobs.  Despite her dire feelings, Darlene agrees with Derek to accept their next adventure on a newly discovered island that holds a mysterious myth.  When they begin exploring, they sense that this is not things they normally handle from the past, but something more advanced into the future. Derek will accidently touch one of the artifacts, which will bring them into a new world and change their lives forever.

Darlene and Derek are not only smart and independent, but they are both beautiful.  She being more distant and cold, and he being a fun loving playboy.  But in this new planet, things are totally different, and due to their attractive looks, they will be sold to another local area.  On a ship, they find that they have been promised as mates to the leader’s son and daughter.  Derek will adapt well, but Darlene will have a very hard time in an alien world, that takes away her freedom.  She finds Atl, her prospective mate, very attractive and he too is forced into this relationship.  But Atl turns out to be a great hero, and someone who loves the spirited, and feisty attitude of Darlene.  Just when she slowly begins to care about Atl, and finds herself learning more about helping with the land and the ship, the wool is pulled out from under her once again.   With Darlene’s help, the leader is able to return to their homeland after 1500 years, but the new King now has his eyes on Darlene, and will do anything to break up her and Atl.

Rather than tell too much more, what follows is an interesting story line, as well as a very nice romance. I really liked Atl, his father (leader), and sister.  Derek was also very good, especially being in a different world.  Darlene was the main character, and I liked her too. However, I did think at times I wanted to smack her, as her stubbornness was annoying.  Granted, her life was totally torn apart, but at times I found her continued refusal to adapt to Atl and his life irritating; but in the end, Darlene’s strength, smarts and independence will help them.  Overall, it was a great story line, and I am amazed by M.A. Abraham’s wonderful imagination in bringing us different & new stories.

Hunter’s Challenge by M.A. Abraham – Review & Giveaway

Hunter’s Challenge by M.A. Abraham – Review & Giveaway

 

Hunter's Challenge Banner

 

Hunter's ChallengeAmazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo / BAM

Descripton:
The Sociopath, who has been wrongly labeled ‘the witch hunter’, is focusing on those who have psychic powers. He has challenged the wrong people, though he doesn’t seem to realize it. He has issued an edict to the Tantalarians, demanding that they bow to his will. That will never happen.

One Tantalarian, in particular, feels he has an axe to grind with this ‘witch hunter’. The man has mentally attacked him, singled out the woman he has chosen for his future mate for extermination or worse. He will not rest until his foe is dead, the game lines have been drawn, the war is on. He might be new to this form of fighting, for he is young, but he knows how to protect his own. He has nothing to lose but his life, for until the one he loves is safe from the madman, he will cling to nothing.

Adele, a young Earthling, has connected with one of the Phoenixes and bears it’s protection. The bonding between them is bringing changes, both mentally and physically that no one expected. She has also fallen in love with the young Tantalarian Hunter, Terec.

Adele, agrees with Terec’s decision to go after the ‘witch hunter’, but has other ideas when it comes to his other plans. She knows how dangerous his plans are, but not his real reasons. As she prepares to fight at the side of the man she loves, she can only wonder, who will win, and who will lose?

 

 

Review:

Hunter’s Challenge by M.A. Abraham is the 3rd book in her Tantalus series.  A brief refresher of the premise of Tantalus: This is a Sci-Fi story about two species (Humans & Tantalarians) that are forced to work together on the planet Tantalus. In the first book, Noah’s Arc brought thousands of humans to land safely on Tantalus, as they learned all about their new planet & their hosts, who look human, but they do have wings. In the second book, the villain (witch hunter) was introduced and in Hunter’s Challenge, he is the focus of this story. 

We get to meet all the characters we have met before, but Terec is our hero.  The rulers of Tantalus recognize that Terec is not only a good hunter, but very smart and savvy.  When the Witch Hunter has his eye on Adele, our heroine, and the human girl that Terec is falling for, he will do everything in his power to find a way to destroy this evil and powerful madman.  The Witch Hunter wants to absorb the powers of those with psychic powers, as well as take over the body of the young hunter.  Will Terec be able to stop the Witch Hunter?  Can he survive?

Adele was a very good heroine, especially in the face of her body changing into a strong woman similar to the Tantalus females who have been chosen Tantalus by the Phoenixes, who protect them and Tantalus. Adele must deal with her changes, as she is now growing wings, and deal with her burning lust for Terec  (Phoenixes push those boundaries into their chosen female).

It will be Terec who will convince Michel and the tribunes to work with his idea to catch the Witch Hunter.  I do not want to give spoilers.  The final half of the book was very exciting, with lots of action and suspense. The romance between Terec and Adele was very well done.

M.A. Abraham has once again given us an exciting and tense story of the two species working together, to fight the evil villain and free those from the last ship from the villains mind control.  I really enjoyed this story, and though the first two books were good; Hunter’s Challenge is the best one yet. Again, if you read this series, I do suggest you start with the first book to be able to understand this world.  The end of the story, leaves a surprise twist that will have us waiting impatiently for the next book.

To Capture an Ancient by M.A. Abraham – a Review

To Capture an Ancient by M.A. Abraham – a Review

 

To Capture an AncientAmazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo

Description:
Earáne is a freethinking Elf. The only daughter of King Liessen and Aredhel, leader of the Elite Guards and General Jerrol Eagle Claw’s lover. She is happy with her life, until she meets Felcor as he fights deep in the Dark Elven Kingdom forests against overwhelming odds. Here, she quickly acknowledges, is her Life Mate, although she doesn’t want him to know it yet. First, she wickedly decides, she wants to play games with him. Then she will let him know what he is to her.

Felcor is more than grateful to the young Elven beauty that has come to his rescue, as he battles Demon forces in the forest. He doesn’t need to be told who she is, he knows. She isn’t only the daughter of the Dark King Liessen, but she is his Life Mate. He realizes things are done differently in the Dark Elven Kingdom, knows that they have a different code of ethics from what he was raised with, but he is determined to do things his way.

It is a clash of cultures, Ancient High Elf vs. modern Dark Elf and the games are on

 

 

Review:

To Capture an Ancient by M.A. Abraham is a novella that is part of her wonderful Elven Chronicles series.  Earane and Felcor are our heroes in this book, but the story revolves around the upcoming war that threatens the lives of the Elven Kingdom, as we know it.

To Capture an Ancient begins at the time where things were left off in the last book, with Gabriel and all the Elves trying to make plans to put their people in safe places, and be prepared for this war, where the reports are saying they will be seriously outnumbered by the demons. Disaster and destruction is on the horizon.

Earane, who is King Leissen and Aredhel daughter, is our heroine.  She is a dark elf, and a leader of the Elite Guards .  Earane is a very confidant and strong young lady, who doesn’t fear fighting and killing demons.  When she comes upon another Elf fighting off a demon attack, Earane will come to help.  When the battle has been won, she will face the man who is her lifemate.   Felcor, an ancient elf, also recognizes that he has finally found his lifemate in Earane.  In between fighting off some demons, the two will make their bond and  lifemate claiming.  They are once again attacked by Demons, and just when the situation becomes dire, Gabrielle and Eol will come to their rescue.

Gabriel is not a happy camper, and dresses down both Earane and Felcor for being careless, and not quickly getting the information they found to him and the others.  Everyone realizes that Gabriel is under terrible stress, and not sleeping. It will take Eden to force him to take a break and rest.

We watch as all the Elves try to find a way to protect their loves ones, and prepare to lose some of their lands to ward off the major demon attack.  To Capture an Ancient is a short story that will lead us to the next full novel, Kings of the Empire, and the demon war.  I cannot wait for this book, and will worry until then what will happen to our Elves.

Into the Demons LairAmazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo / BAM / The Book Depository

Description:
After seeing Eärwen and Eöl reunited, Larien storms off. She is sickened by the endless evil the Demons continue to practice and she swears revenge against the Hordes for what they have done to her friends. She decides it is time that she should take a page from her mother’s past and put it into practice, with a twist. Instead of waiting for the enemy to act, she will take her Dragonets to attack the Demons where they live.

Rothliel has learned his Life Mate’s name and his brother tells him that the time has come for him to claim her. Lothrariel also tells him about her plans. He is not pleased with what he hears. Nothing, however, that he says deters her when they meet, and he is drawn into her game plan.

Neither Larien nor Rothliel are prepared for what they find. The Demon Mountains hide many secrets from the world. They are not what everyone thinks they are. What has the Drazon been hiding? They are about to find out, as they travel deep into the Demons Lair.

 

 

 

Review:

Into the Demons Lair by M.A. Abraham is the 11th book in her wonderful Elven Chronicles series.  Into the Demon’s Lair escalates the Demon war to one that threatens the lives of all the elves and their kingdoms.  Larien,  who is Serenity’s eldest daughter, decides to take matters in her own hands by taking  her dragonets and entering the Demon Mountain.  King Lothrariel sees a vision about Larien, and sends Rothliel to find her and bring her out of the mountain, which is too dangerous.  Lothrariel also knows that Larien is Rothliel’s lifemate.  Into this mix is Alyssa, who is Larien’s younger sister, who knows what Larien is up to and follows quietly behind to help her if needed. 

Into the Demons Lair is somewhat different than the earlier books.  The war is the main focus bringing in all the characters from earlier books, especially the young children who are now fully grown up, with many now generals in the Elven army, and all the Kings from the other Kingdoms.  Larien, Alyssa and Rothliel have sent messages to warn the others that the mountains are falling apart, and Demons are now coming out in full force to attack all the kingdoms.  The three of them inside the mountains are flabbergasted at how many demons that have been hidden; the number is astronomical, and the Elves know that this could be a war they cannot win.  During one of the explosions inside the cave, all three of them fall deeply into an opening. What they find upon awakening, is that they are being healed by different elves. Who and where are they from?   I will not tell too much more, as they will be spoilers.

This was an exciting story, with some twists. Larien, Alyssa and Rothleil were the center of much of the story, and helped create some humor.  However, most of the story was filled with action and preparation to fight a dangerous enemy.  I did have a couple of issues.  There are so many characters in the Elven Chronicles over the 11 books, and when bringing together everyone throughout the kingdoms to plan, and to fight was somewhat confusing trying to remember who was who.  Lastly, the finish was very exciting, as we knew that perhaps we can survive an onslaught, and then it ends. Glares at M.A. Abraham for leaving us totally hanging?  I know that this series usually ends to be continued, but so much was left that I wanted some closure before ending.  .  Sigh  Now I have to wait a long time for Kings of the Empire.

Earwen's SongAmazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo

Description:
With one look Eöl knows he has finally found the love of his life, his Life Mate, one he has promised to bind so tightly they will never be parted. He is about to find that it isn’t as easy as he believes it will be, not with a Light Elf mate, who is also an Eagle Claw.

Shocked by the sudden appearance of a Life Mate in her life, when she hadn’t expected one, Eärwen runs. It isn’t that she is against the idea, but this wasn’t supposed to happen to her and, although she fights it, their attraction to one another is too strong.

As a newly bonded couple of power, they are hunted by the Demons and then captured, before being parted. The bond they share, however, is stronger than anyone believes. It connects them in ways few could have foreseen, as heart to heart, mind to mind, soul to soul, they complete their bond in the way of the most ancient of Elves.

 

 

Review:

Earwen’s Song by M.A. Abraham is the 10th book in her wonderful Elven Chronicles series. I have said this before, this series just keeps getting better and better.  After the last book, we knew Earwen and Eol would be our heroes in this one.  Pretty quickly, both Earwen and Eol accidently are shocked to find out that they are lifemates.  Each has their own reactions.  Earwen is not happy, since is having too much fun with her friends and does not want to be bonded to any one, though Eol is one handsome Elf.  Eol is thrilled to finally have found his lifemate, and to be the pretty Earwen, who is a powerful young Tratcher and Eagle Claw.

When Eol kisses Earwen, she begins to feel the strong attraction, but she does not want to do the binding words just yet.  Eol will do a different kind of bonding that he learned during his study of old ancient history.  With them working together to help fight the Demon War, which is escalating, the unthinkable happens.  Eol will be captured, and Earwen injured. The different ancient bonding is so strong, that they will both be tied together feeling each of their pains, as well as able to mind connect with each other. 

All of this happens early on, as all the Kings, Gabriel, and the rest of the elves we have come to love will join in a major fierce battle against the demons and their wizards in a race to stop the onslaught, and to find a way to save Eol. Losing Eol will also cause Gabriel and Eden to lose Earwen,  as her bond to badly injured Eol, is causing her much of the same pain. 

Earwen’s Song is another exciting and tense story in M.A. Abraham’s wonderful Elven Chronicles Series.  It was great to see most of the children we have watched grow up to become such powerful warriors.  Through the intense battle, it was fun to watch what they can do, but at the same time, there was some emotional parts filled with torture and death. M.A. Abraham has written another fantastic story that continues to evolve, with non-stop action and great characters.  Very well done.

Surrounded by the Light by M.A. Abraham – a Review

Surrounded by the Light by M.A. Abraham – a Review

 

Surrounded by the lightAmazon / Barnes & Noble

Description:
It has been three years since Branith has been home and a few of the Princes from the Free Lands have come with him. Things have changed and they are all quick to note the obvious ones. The young girls he remembered as cute little toddlers and scamps are developing curves, and he is suddenly feeling very protective. Where did that come from?

As Elves gather for the celebration, Daroth finds his Kingdom is being invaded by what seems like every high-ranking Elven family in the Empire. There are toddlers everywhere! He would ask where they all came from, but their ages point at only one possible answer: their conceptions can be traced back to the time when Gabriel and Eden conjured their spell in the High Elven Kingdom. It reminds him of when their children were toddlers, and with that in mind, he is ready to enjoy the party.

Can it be that simple?

 

 

Review:

Surrounded by the Light by M.A. Abraham is another one of her wonderful novellas from her Elven Chronicles, which she always brings us each year near the holidays. It is that time of year again in Daroth’s Kingdom when all the families gather to celebrate. Only this time, it seems all the other Kings and their families don’t want to miss this either, and they all start arriving.

Branith, who is Marious’ brother, has been away for three years, and he comes home with others from the free lands to a wild and fun filled celebration that will find him his lifemate. But not too much other then who she is was mentioned. I am sure Abraham has more in store for us with this revelation.

The crux of the story in the middle of the celebration will alert all that danger is on the horizon once again. This is a novella and too hard to write a longer review, as saying too much would be spoilers. I will say that the children were up to their old tricks, which was cute; we also got to see the Dragon King and Queen, who visited with serious warnings, not to mention S’Larea and her visions of danger.

Once again M.A. Abraham gives us a fast, fun filled read to celebrate the holidays with our Elves.
