Indie Advent Calendar Day 1

Indie Advent Calendar

It’s day 1 of the Indie Advent Calendar, organised by Kay Macleod for the 3rd year in a row (follow the link above to see the full event) and today sees two authors for you to discover.

I know they say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but just look at those covers, if they’re anything to go by, the books are amazing.

Rhonda Smiley – Asper



16-year-old Milla loses everything in an instant—her family, her home, her life as she knows it—over a sacred scroll that can merge her realm of Asper with Earth.

Ignited by grief, she sets out for vengeance but quickly discovers she’s no match for the murderous queen who has usurped the power of sorcerers before her. A queen who will stop at nothing to rule both worlds.

Undeterred, Milla takes a forgotten portal to Earth so she can master her craft without being hunted, and return for the kill. While there, she bonds with 17-year-old Parker who believes in her and her unfathomable stories when no one else does.

But when a spell her father cast to bury her memories begins to wane, Milla glimpses into a past she doesn’t recognize. A past so unthinkable, it derails her future. Secrets and lies, love and hate, friends and foes—the lines are blurred and she’s left questioning everything.

What is right? Or wrong? Good? Or evil?

And more importantly, what is she?
