Anniversary of the Veil Series Book 1 and 2 Boxed Set: Protector; Decision Maker

Anniversary of the Veil Series Boxed Set

Includes: Book 1-Protector & Book 2-Decision Maker


Kae has trained his entire life to become an elite Protector of the Realm. But once his wish comes true, he is faced with choices no one should be forced to make. Will he choose duty or love? Can he truly bear the consequences of either decision?

Novel: $4.99 Epic Author: Vanna Smythe

Anniversary of the Veil-Beginnings: The Beacon

Kae has trained his entire life to become an elite Protector of the Realm. Untold magic and forbidden love for Princess Issiyanna awaken inside him once his wish comes true. When Issiyanna is abducted, Kae must make a choice. Will he stay true to his duty as a Protector, or allow his love for Issiyanna to guide his future path? Magic, loyalty, greed, and love clash as Kae is forced to make his decision.

This ebook contains the first 21 chapters of Protector (Anniversary of the Veil, Book 1), which is about half of the entire book. I have decided to make these beginning chapters available as a separate ebook to give readers a better sample before committing to a full series. Fair warning: Though a plot arc is completed in these 21 chapters, the tale ends on a cliffhanger, as does Protector.

Novel: FREE Epic Author: Vanna Smythe


In a land just beyond your mirror lies a realm few discover. It is a magical, dangerous dimension.
There lurks your darkest nightmares and your fondest hopes.
For nearly two thousand winters there, the seasons have flowed inevitably one into another. Life is as it always has been. The Huron war with the Iroquois, the Commanche with the Lakota, and the Apache with everyone.
Across the great waters, the Mongul storm the great wall of Chin. The samurai of Nippon invade Indus. And the vast Collisium lies in ruins, overgrown with vines and olive trees.
The deer and bear roam the deserted villages of Gaul. And the lonely wind whispers through the towering monoliths of Stonehenge. The race called Whyte is not even a memory. Except to Estanatlehi, The Turquoise Woman, once named Gaia, Goddess of the Earth, by the People she alone remembers.

Novel: $1.99 Adventure / Epic / Middle Grade / Swords & Sorcery / Young Adult Author: Roland Yeomans


The time has come to listen to echoes from our land...the wisdom and teachings of the mountains, streams, and woods. Their words are simple and their voices are soft. We have not heard them, because we have not taken the time to listen. We have been too busy smothering them in crypts of concrete and steel.

Journey with the last Lakota shaman, Wolf Howl. The white govenments call him Drew August. Those who hunt him call him Death. His is the power of the mind unleashed. His is the curse of seeing that the world is sailing into regions of space where different rules apply, different predators hunt, and the race of Man is heading towards that final conflict the Mayans predicted so long ago.

The last day of Man has dawned. Watch as Wolf Howl turns to meet his human hunters.

Metahominids: Mêta'hôm'i'nîdz: (pl.) n. Ancient Greek: meta = other, hominids = men. (From Dr. John Dee's 1583 'Inventory of Magickal Correspondences')

Metahominids are our oldest enemy; if they don't kill you, they will destroy your mind. Even the finest brains are not immune. When Sherlock Holmes' brilliant creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fell victim, they made him believe that photographs of cut-out paper figures were real fairies. Now they are leaving their traditional haunts of hill fort, woodland and barrow, to prey upon us on our own territory. As this centuries old, covert war heats up, it falls to a shambling figure known only as 'D', to keep us safe - and ignorant of the nightmares that lurk in the every-day world we call 'reality'.

Flesh and Blood

In these two dark fantasy short stories, the horror lurks in unexpected corners, and for those who are willing to see, there is a twisted kind of humor hidden within...
* The Angel: Dying Van Cleft clings to his life with all the strength cancer has left him. He knows how to cheat death. But will his craving for an angel's body truly redeem him?
* Wedding Nights: Child-vampire Constance hates hunting, but she's starving. However, her latest prey is more dangerous that she anticipated, and long suppressed memories awaken. Struggling against a fate worse than death, she fights for her un-death.

Personal Note from the Author: I normally write stories for teens and children, but these stories are neither suitable for my usual audience nor for tender-hearted people. They are exclusively for fans of horror.
