The Shadow Of Tyr

Book Two of the Mirage Makers

By Glenda Larke

  • Paperback
  • £10.99

The second novel in this compelling historical fantasy trilogy, set in a brutal world of empire-building and conquest.

Ligea Gayed has been lied to once too often. Now she has turned against her former employer, the secretive Brotherhood of the Tyrans Empire, and must evade Favonius and his Jackals while also recruiting others to fight with her.

Yet, despite her best efforts, a rebellion is hard to come by. Except within her own family, of course. Ligea's son, Arrant, is prey to feelings of inadequacy, and is angry about his mother's relationship with a man who is not his father. Unable to accept what is happening to him, he becomes susceptible to the blandishments of his mother's enemies. Worse still, in the middle of a war he is a Magoroth unable to control or use his power in a constructive way.

In seeking to punish Ligea for her relationship with Brand, Arrant and those around him might well lose everything . . .

Larke has a talent for world building and a fondness for unstable landscapes ... It's also great fun. — BARBARA Davies, STARBURST MAGAZINE
I had serious difficulty in putting the book down... very strongly written and allows for more shades of grey than many fantasy novels do, but also a richly imagined and thoroughly believable world... — Natalie Baker, The Bookbag
Glenda Larke writes stories of real consequence, and this is no exception. Powerful, down to earth and filled with the sharpness of the true storyteller, Mirage Makers is entertainment with an edge. Count me as a true fan. — Russell Kirkpatrick, author of The Fire of Heaven trilogy

Beyond Temptation

Authors:
Audrey Boss, Sophie Boss

In Beyond Temptation Sophie and Audrey Boss offer a radical alternative to the tried and tested methods used to combat overeating which either encourage women to rely on willpower alone, or legitimise overeating by providing lists of 'free foods' on which women are actively encouraged to binge.This book doesn't rely on NLP, CBT or life coaching techniques, but instead draws on the authors' own experiences as two overweight and unhappy overeaters and their ten years of experience working with thousands of failed dieters in the 'Beyond Chocolate' workshops and the successful techniques used in their newly established 'Stop Overeating' workshops to offer women a practical, sustainable approach to stopping overeating and achieving long term weight loss.
