The depth of world-building and the energetic pace of the story make The Leprechaun Wars a treat for any fantasy fan." Self-Publishing Review, ★★★★

An epic fantasy of love, war, honor, and vengeance, set in a world on fire. An action-packed adventure of the highest order, The Bulls of War provides a sweeping tale of an empire on the precipice of war with its hated rival, their fragile truce teetering on the edge of a sword. Tens of thousands of troops stand at the ready, only an order away from battles on a scale unseen in centuries. Some factions within the Imperial capital fight to keep the peace, while others shirk no scheme, murder, or terror in their quest to trigger war - a war some fear could rend their empire apart. It is in the midst of this dangerous game of brinksmanship that Generals Tyghus and Kyrus soon find themselves, pulled towards opposite sides of the growing rift. Against a backdrop of ruthless politics and the drumbeat of war, their friendship is put to the ultimate test as they struggle to save their country, themselves, and those they love - all while battling their own tragic pasts. With Tolkien's scope and Martin's scheming, The Bulls of War is the first book of E.M. Thomas's epic fantasy series Chronicles of the Andervold Thrones, a saga reminiscent of ancient Rome and Greece in a world all its own.

The Seventh Dimension Series Full Box Set includes The Door, The King, The Castle, The City, The Prescience, and The Howling. The Seventh Dimension Series has won over thirty-five book awards. "Time is an illusion until God's appointed time," is the major theme based on A.W. Tozer's quote in The Pursuit of God: "A spiritual kingdom lies all about us, enclosing us, embracing us, altogether within reach of our inner selves, waiting for us to recognize it. God Himself is here waiting our response to His Presence. This eternal world will come alive to us the moment we begin to reckon upon its reality." The two young protagonists, Shale Snyder, an American, and Daniel Sperling, an Israeli, meet in the seventh dimension--a reality outside of time. Their love for each other is conflicted over their opposing spiritual beliefs that seem irreconcilable. The story covers many years as the young couple matures. The sixth book, The Howling, culminates with Biblical revelations concerning the future, Daniel's missing father, and a startling surprise. Allegory, foreshadowing, and symbolism are woven into the Seventh Dimension Series, and the heroism of the two protagonists is meant to inspire the reader. Love and forgiveness are virtues that both protagonists must learn. The Seventh Dimension Series begins in Atlanta, Georgia, but quickly moves to Israel. The reader soon finds himself immersed in the first century, and stories from the life of Jesus Christ intersect the story plot outside o ...

---In the days of Richard The Lion Heart, Gwendolyn was born. Conceived within the Druid mists, at King Arthur's Legendary Pool of Pendragon and as prophesied by a Druid Priestess, she grew into womanhood, and became the most powerful knight the world had ever seen. ---When Miles Delong, Earl of Radstock and military adviser to King Richard first saw her, he was lost to her beauty and might. He taught her the art of war, but it was Gwendolyn, who taught Sir Miles the art of love. ---Together, Gwendolyn and Myles fought their enemies both at home and in the Holy Land. But it was not until Sir Miles was treacherously given over to Saladin, the King of the Moors, that Gwendolyn left England's Druid Groves and went to the Holy Land, not as Gwendolyn Delong, wife of the Earl of Radstock, but as Sir Eldwin of Radstock, where she led the fight through the bloody Crusades and into to the very Court of Saladin, that the Queen of Knights became a legend.
