Aaberdeen: The Beginning of the End: Part 1: Journeys Collide by L M Blair

Teen and young adult fantasy.

by L M Blair 

In Aaberdeen: The Beginning of the End: Part 1, follow the mystery and adventures of Shawn, Clio, Bruno, Prince Frederic and Sir Emmett as they set out to find what awaits them in the mystical land of Aaberdeen.

Aaberdeen is no longer a land teeming with mystical and magical creatures. Hope, honor and magic are rare commodities. A melancholy has settled upon the land where the people have forgotten their past and fight their own potential. Rulers make laws to preserve their positions. The common man, more common than ever, has little hope in the future, especially as the dark forces gather. 

There is one ray of hope and a chance to spread goodness in the land or the evil will increase. But first, those who have forgotten or fight their destiny must be reminded of their potential and ability as they must first choose to go on this journey of self-discovery.

Divine Love by Dylan Morrison

“A compact collection of stirring thoughts.”

by Dylan Morrison  

Divine Love is an inspirational collection of spiritual musings from the pen of Irish writer, Dylan Morrison. The fruit of a life-long, roller-coaster journey, it encapsulates Morrison's personal take on all things God, Self and Religious. Each pithy reflection aims to release us from our propensity for self-deception, by leading us to the Mystery of Source and its healing offspring, Self-compassion. Morrison's literary tools are humor, mixed with a disarming, Irish honesty as he examines what really makes us tick.

The favored Linus blankets of both organized religion and New Age philosophies come under his razor-sharp scrutiny, opening up liberating, new areas of exploration for the sincere, spiritual seeker. If you're asking life's big questions, then Divine Love is surely the book for you.

About the Author
Dylan Morrison is an Irish spiritual author and out of the box Yeshua thinker, now resident in the historic cathedral city of Lincoln, England. An ex-high school mathematics teacher, he unexpectedly became an author after two mystical experiences gate crashed his humdrum life back in June 2004.

Dylan writes from an inspiring stream of consciousness, particularly for those damaged by or just curious about the psycho-spiritual religious world. His aim is to remove the religious packaging from around the historical Nazarene prophet, Yeshua bar Yosef, inviting his readers into a practical experience of Yeshua's spirituality.

Dylan's first book 'The Prodigal Prophet', a 'Wizard of Oz' meets Bunyan's 'Pilgrim's Progress', details his roller coaster journey in search of the Divine in the often whacky yet deeply tragic world of Irish Charismatic religion.

Dylan's second book 'Bolts From The Blue', an inspirational daily reader on the mystical search for meaning is now available in paperback and Kindle editions.

'Way Beyond The Blue' is Dylan's third book, a book for both mind and heart. Rooted in the often neglected practice of Christian mysticism, Irish contemplative, Dylan leads us into an exploratory roller-coaster tour of our inner and outer psychological landscapes.

'Matrix Messiah' is possibly Dylan's most controversial book to date, examining the human predicament and the Nazarene, Yeshua bar Yosef, from the perspective of mimetic theory and transpersonal psychology. The hidden message of history's leading religious icon sheds new light on our most human of problems; rivalry and its contagious violence.

'Mystical Steps' is Dylan's most recent book. Concerned by the lack of reading material regarding mysticism within both religious and non-religious spiritual genres, Dylan has penned this little book to encourage the potential mystic on their way. The three main branches of mysticism are outlined and discussed with some practical tips as how our mystical sensitivities may be developed and explored.

Zan, Dylan's long-suffering wife for the past 35 years, is glad that he writes - it gives her a few hours each day to enjoy the peace and quiet that his literary endeavors require.

Meeting of the Mustangs by Cathy Kennedy

A beautiful, smart horse's adventurous journey,”

For hundreds of years, generations of wild mustangs have roamed large parts of the western United States. Many of these magnificent animals can live their entire lives without ever seeing a single human being. Being completely self-sufficient, they inhabit the wilderness in groups, living together peacefully and posing no threat to any of the other animals with which they share the land.

Through knowledge that has been passed down to them from their ancestors, these horses are masters of survival and know what things to fear and how to protect themselves from those dangers.

This is the story of a special horse. His life begins much the same as the other young horses in his group, but will turn out to be much different. Through no fault of his own, he is separated from everything he has come to know and thrown into an entirely different way of life. Although his world changes drastically, his adventures continue until he finds himself in the unexpected position to repay a kindness that was once shown to him.

Friendship can sometimes be found in the least likely forms, in the most difficult times. 

About the Author
Cathy Kennedy spent the first years of her life growing up in Pennsylvania, USA, before moving to South Florida at age 17. Her book, Meeting of the Mustangs, was started during her teenage years in Pennsylvania and would not be completed until many years later. The story of the wild mustangs is somewhat reflective of her life living in the country, where her family owned horses. She wanted to complete the book for younger readers who have a love for animals, and finally convinced herself that she should continue the story where she'd stopped writing many years before. She currently lives in Ohio with her husband and three rescued tuxedo cats.

Gina's Review
Author Cathy Kennedy shares the story of an American Mustang, born in the wilds of Kansas. The colt finds himself growing up fast in America’s heartland with narrowing escapes, challenging scenarios, and small victories. Finally, captured and expected to behave, the young horse tries to fit in… “He hadn’t meant to misbehave. He thought about being in the fields and the mountains and what his life had been like so long ago. He thought of his old friends and the fun that he had…”

Author Kennedy includes the heartbreaking reality of the perils the Mustangs face each day, and that it is our responsibility to care and nurture them. Meeting the Mustangs is a reminder that our heritage and treasure roams on four legs. Recommended reading for children/teenagers.

Hyperforce II: Of Madmen and Megalomaniacs

Enemies All Around Them! 
A Team in Turmoil!
Of Madmen and Megalomaniacs 

Hyperforce accomplished much in its first year together. But now, with one of their most powerful members gone, the team must try to unravel the machinations of their foe, ‘Mind Master.’ 

But Mind Master is not the only threat they must face. Because a new foe (or is he a friend?) has risen from the sea and is seeking out the team of superheroes. But what does he actually want from them? Does he seek their aid? Or does he have more nefarious plans in mind? 

The adventures of the nascent super-team continue as villain after villain, one more powerful than the last, attack the team again and again.
But their newest, most mysterious foe may be more than they can handle. A hulking grey skinned brute with strange and terrible powers may signal the end for Hyperforce. A monster whose battle cry of ‘Kneel and know Dyspair!’ would send an involuntary shudder down the spine of the bravest of men.

With not only their own lives, but those of people all over the world at stake, will Hyperforce be enough to stop their terrible new enemy? And what of the traitor and spy in their midst? Will he be discovered in time?
Find out the answer to all of these questions within the pages of ‘Hyperforce II: Of Madmen and Megalomaniacs.’
