“Is he still alive?” Tegan murmured.


Aari looked up at the Osprey. “We need to get him out of here. The plane’s going to turn back soon.”

“Take care of him,” Jag said, an edge to his voice as he stood up.

Tegan caught a look in his eyes and knew something was brewing in his mind. “What are you—”

“Just get him to safety,” he cut her off, turning to look at the plane. Without another word, he started to sprint in the direction of the aircraft. He heard his friends shouting his name but his mind was set and he was not turning back…

Sprinting at an inhuman speed, Jag’s blurred figure tore across the mining site toward the plane as it swung back around. Leaping onto the roof of the steel building that housed the beasts and using it as a springboard, he bounded off and propelled straight toward the open ramp of the plane…

Book Brief: Prince of Malorn

Prince of MalornPrince of Malorn
by Annie Douglass Lima
Genre: YA action adventure/fantasy
Word count: 170,000

One major obstacle stands between seventeen-year-old Prince Korram and the throne that is his birthright: Regent Rampus. Temporary ruler of Malorn, Rampus has no intention of giving up his position when the crown prince comes of age – or of allowing the prince to live long enough to reach that age.

Desperate to build an army of his own to stand against the regent, Korram treks into the Impassable Mountains to try to recruit the one segment of Malornian society not under Rampus’s control. But can he lead a band of untrained hunters and gatherers to victory against the full might of the Malornian military? Or will they all be crushed by the grasping hand of the regent before the prince can claim his rightful throne?

This book is available at Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble.

Annie, how did you come up with the title for your book? Does it have any special meaning? 
Korram, the main character, is the Prince of Malorn. His identity is part of the theme of the book, since he must leave his palace and venture into the wilderness where no one knows (or cares) who he is.

Who was your favorite character and why? 
The villain Dannel. He’s clever, conniving, has a sense of humor, loves the thrill of danger, and does whatever it takes to make money from whomever he can. Oh, and he has no moral standards to speak of. (I wouldn’t want to meet him in real life!)

Does your book have any underlying theme, message, or moral? 
Prince of Malorn features the theme that no matter how great someone is, people who don’t know him aren’t likely to care much about him or listen to his message unless he will humble himself, give up his rights and titles, and become one of them.

What would/could a reader or reviewer say about this book that shows they “get” you as an author? 
“This is the perfect complement to the other books in the series. Although each could be read on its own, Prince of Malorn ties the other two together and rounds out the picture of the events that took place in that world and the characters involved in them.”

Give us an excerpted quote from your favorite review of this book:
“Prince of Malorn has action, suspense, adventure, tragedy, and humor…. Lima is a master of her craft, and I will be looking for anything and everything this author puts out.”

Video Trailer: Prisoners of the Williwaw

Prisoners of the WilliwawFrank Villa has everything he asked for. He wrote a book proposing that the government give him and other convicts an abandoned island in the Aleutians. Let their families accompany them, with no more welfare checks, and no more three squares and a cot. They’re on their own. The government saves millions and Frank gets his freedom, except for the Coast Guard keeping them all on the island.

The native Aleuts know the Aleutians better. A fierce wind, called a Williwaw, roams the islands, tearing down the works of man. Now Williwaw is trying to drive Frank off the island with rain and snow eighty-five percent of the time. And this god gets a lot of help from Boss Gilmore, another convict, who’s eager to pocket whatever money the men have. Gilmore opens a bar and a house of prostitution, he sells drugs and weapons.

Convicts hate cops, but that’s exactly what Frank needs – a cop, law and order. If he fails, it’s back to prison for the rest of his life.
