Hello and welcome!

I am excited to share Chapter 1 of the upcoming release from M. A. Abraham.

HIDDEN KINGDOMS is book 1 of the One Empire series, the spinoff from Elven Chronicles and releases November 6, 2018. The beautiful cover was created by talented Cora Graphics.

hiddenkingdomspaperback

It has been several years since the Elves created the boundary that keeps them safe from the rest of the world. They have been busy rebuilding the lands the Drazon destroyed in the war and developing new ones.

Now that the bulk of the work is done, the Fates have decided it is time to tell them about the second portion of the Elven Empire and send then into the uncharted wilds on a quest. They are to find the Hidden Kingdoms and begin the restoration of the Empire as it was in the days of the Ancients. How are they to do that? All knowledge of those days have been lost to time, or has it?

The sons of King Liessen, Marious and Gabriel are amongst those that have been chosen and, as they venture away from their homes, they find more than anyone expected, for there are Elves of different colours and cultures living beyond their world. It makes them wonder what is in store for them, as well as why they have remained hidden for so long?

Make sure you read the short story, Rising from the Ashes, before Hidden Kingdoms.

Continuing from where the Elven Chronicles left off. We bring you the ONE EMPIRE SERIES.

The Drazon is dead, and the Demons have been eradicated from the Elven Empire. Now the Elves can begin anew, and this is exactly what they are about to do. Their lands are scarred by the war, their original Kingdoms fragmented and their people are in need of healing as much as the world around them. The boundary has been raised, to separate the Elven Empire from the rest of the world, and they settle down to work.

The new era starts with the Elven Kingdoms uniting as the One Empire, Life Mates are found, relationships cemented, and peace reigns. There is no better time to rebuild their world, and raise a family. First, the men who took advantage of Gabriel and Eden’s spell must convince their Life Mates that what they did was not such a bad thing. That could take a while, especially for any Male Elf who is bonded to a Light Elven Female.

The Phoenixes’ Choice – ch 1

Hello and welcome!

Chapter 1 in the upcoming, The Phoenixes’ Choice, book 5 in the Tantalus series is live on M. A. Abraham‘s website. Click on this link to read it.

The Phoenixes Choice-cover

Kyllan has come home to find several surprises waiting for him, one in the form of a man he had thought dead. Trysuil is most definitely not lost to their people, and he couldn’t be happier. His daughter, Alena, is ecstatic, for her love has been returned to her.

The Phoenixes saved Trysuil from what would have been a certain death, for he had more potential than anyone could have imagined. They kept him in a state of suspended animation, until the time was right, with the knowledge that their world was about to go through many changes in the future. In his new position of power, he will be known as the Adjudicator. He only answers to the Phoenixes; he is their judge and jury.

Those who have gotten to know Kyllan respect and admire him as a good leader of uncanny foresight and abilities. As they get to know Trysuil, they find out that he is fair, just and a man of vision. He will not abuse his position. He would rather help those who have come to live on Tantalus build a future for the generations that are to follow, but he can bring down the might of the Phoenixes to bear on them, if there is a need.

The release is scheduled for April 17, 2018.

Chapter I – ‘Kings of the Empire’

Read the beginning of the end of the epic Elven Chronicles series by M. A. Abraham

M. A. Abraham

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

CHAPTER I

King Daroth walked through the crowded paths as he made his way to the High Lord General Gabriel Eagle Claw’s headquarters. He was hesitant to bother the Elf, because the last time he had seen him, he had looked so tired he appeared to be ready to collapse. Eden hadn’t looked much better, and it pained him to see his subjects in such a state. He realized it wasn’t his fault. The whole of the Elven Empire had the same problem, and it would only get worse, before things began to improve.

This time, King Daroth had another concern to add to the growing problems the High Lord General was facing. There was another army closing in on the West gates of the Light Elven Kingdom. He wasn’t sure what Gabriel was going to be able to do about that, if anything…

Meet King Liessen

Hello and welcome!

May I present King Liessen? One of my book boyfriends from the Elven Chronicles by M. A. Abraham.

He is the King of the Dark Elves, an Elven Wizard … and playboy of the Empire… well… that was before he met his Life Mate, Aredhel 😉

I had him for a chat back in 2014? Worth rereading and if you missed it, you have to check it out here.

Source

Mary Ann and I had fun choosing him from hundreds of pictures, even though our eyes were crossed by the end. Cora from Cora Graphics did an amazing job as usual.

His story is told in Book 6 of the series, where he meets his Life Mate, Aredhel.

A flicker of eye contact is all King Liessen needs to know he has met his Life Mate and he realizes he knows her, not personally but through prior missions they have completed together. The biggest surprise comes with the knowledge that she is Garoldth’s daughter. The second surprise comes when he finds she is waking emotions he thought himself incapable of feeling. In the past, he laughed at the possessiveness of male Life Mates, but he quickly realized they were mild in comparison and how close he wants to keep his.

Aredhel didn’t notice the Dark King Liessen standing beside Daroth. She has always held men in contempt, only willing to acknowledge them if they deserved it. So why is this male different? Why does he make her heart skip a beat whenever he comes near? She doesn’t have time for this. She needs to stay focused. She is on a mission and it doesn’t include an Elf with a bad reputation.

He makes an appearance throughout the series, so hope you will check it out.

Cover release: Beyond the Myth by M. A. Abraham

Hello and welcome!

Check out this beauty, Cora Graphics has done it again!

Coming December 21, 2016 from M. A. Abraham

Darlene and Derek Stanton are top-notch archaeologists, born and raised in the field. They are sought out for their expertise, along with the prestige they bring to each job they do, which is why they were hired to check out a myth that led to a buried city.

Darlene hides her vulnerabilities behind a wall of ice, where she feels safe from the rest of the world. Her twin, Derek, on the other hand, is quite the opposite, adventurous and easygoing. What they find in the buried city, and experience soon after, sends her into a state of shock.

Ripped from her home planet, forced into a relationship, and lifestyle that is totally alien to everything she knows, Darlene fights to regain some form of stability in her life. Derek doesn’t have the same problem, as he settles into their new lifestyles without a problem. It doesn’t help when the handsome man who now owns her is so charismatic that she can barely keep her hands off of him. How is she to face the reality of the life she has found, beyond the myth?

Atl is the eldest son of the leader on a space ship. He wants nothing more than to marry his childhood sweetheart, until he meets Darlene. She is beautiful, spirited, and nearly more than he can handle. Will he be able to connect with her heart or will he lose her forever?

Add it to your Goodreads shelf and I will give an update when the pre-order links will be available.

Check out Chapter 1 from “Hunter’s Challenge”, book 3 of the Tantalus series by M. A. Abraham, to be released on October 1, 2016.

Tantalus-bookmarkPRINT

The entity who has been called the ‘Witch Hunter’ is focusing on those who have psychic powers. He has issued an edict to the Tantalarians, demanding that they bow to his will. He has challenged the wrong people, though he doesn’t seem to realize it.

One Tantalarian, in particular, feels he has an axe to grind with this ‘Witch Hunter’. This entity has mentally attacked Terec, and singled out the woman he loves to use for his own nefarious purpose. He will not rest until his foe is dead, the game lines have been drawn, the war is on. He might be a young warrior, but he will protect his own. He has nothing to lose but his life, for until the one he loves is safe from the madman, he will stop at nothing.

Adele, a young Earthling, falls in love with the young Tantalarian Hunter, Terec, at first sight and is determined she will have no one else. One of the Phoenixes connects with Adele, creating changes in her, both mentally and physically, that no one expected.

Adele, agrees with Terec’s decision to go after the ‘Witch Hunter, although she knows how dangerous his plans are and she is prepared to fight at the side of the man she loves.

After so many years, we get to see Gabriel Eagle Claw, the High Lord General of the Combined Elven Armies in the Elven Chronicles by M. A. Abraham. Life Mate to Eden, he plays a big part in the series and is adored by many. I came to really-really like him, especially after reading the WIP of the last book in the series, “Kings of the Empire” that will be released in February, 2017.

A taste of “My Darling, Janice” by M. A. Abraham

Janice+cover

To My Darling Granddaughter

If you are reading this letter I know you are on your way to Vienna to follow the trail of the one who once bore your name. Notice how I am not asking how you learned about her? There are only two people who could have told you about my second sister; my wife, or your Great Aunt Lydia. I was never able to get either to swear that they would keep silent about her, no matter how deeply the pain of her memory remains in my heart.

Your mother knew. I think she found the journals and read them. I am still not sure how that happened, although I have my suspicions. Your father never knew. We never discussed his aunt, not ever. His wife, however, was constantly making sure all the corners of the townhouse where these books were kept remained clean and free of cobwebs. The person I am writing about in this journal, is she whom you got your name from, and it is as beautiful as she was. She was one I loved with all my heart, as I love you.

Perhaps the women in my life whom I have loved the most have been right about how I handled the portion of my life that contained that sister. I have no answers to explain why I have done what I have. In remembering, however, I wrote these journals. The contents within them hold the memory of the last year we were together. They keep her alive as she is in my memory to this day. You, my sweetheart, are the living spirit of what she was.

I like to watch you, as I did her, as you dance. Light, carefree, so full of the bloom of life. You float over the ballroom floors lost in the music of the waltzes you so love. My sister was like that, her every movement was like watching a butterfly floating in the air, gracefully epitomizing the spirit of the tunes the masters dreamed. They were but a tribute to her beauty.

I do not say this lightly my beautiful butterfly. I say this because you are so much like her in many ways. You flit through life and nothing touches you, yet you love deeply and selflessly. You spread beauty and grace wherever you go. Anyone who experiences the light of your life longs for its touch forevermore. Unfortunately, as you are like my sister in all ways that are good, you show some of her faults as well. You can be headstrong and often unthinking about what you are doing or saying, but these are the traits of youth. I hope that you find what you are seeking with this trip of adventure you have embarked on.

I have asked Lady Marta to serve as Chaperone for you while you travel, to protect your reputation. She was more than happy to do this, as she loves you like a daughter. I have written to your Great Aunt Lydia and your Great Uncle Wolfgang, to let them know you are coming. I hope the letters get to them before you do. I would not like to think of you stranded in a foreign country with no guidance or protection.

You will find the bundle of journals along with the letter I have written, read them all. You will find not only the reasons for my pain, but my love. Read now my darling Janice, and get to know my sister Janice as a living, breathing person.

Your Loving Grandfather, Martin
Dated April 12, 1864

 

After discovering some old journals that belong to her grandfather Janice finds he has been hiding a painful memory of a sister he once had. She is determined to find out more and after confronting him she leaves for the country of his birth to learn more from his family. She has wrung some of the story out of him. She learns that she looks like her grandaunt and was named after her. He told her how beautiful his sister was, how popular and loved she had been, but refuses to talk about her in any detail.

As Janice travels she learns that her grandfather expected her to go to his former home. In her luggage she finds her grandfather’s journals that detail the last years of his sister’s life along with a couple letters from him. She begins to read and is pulled into the glittering whirlwind of her grandaunt’s life. A world where the Janice that was, reigned as the social Queen of Viennese society and was loved by one and all, but especially by the man she eventually married. As she closes the journal she is more determined than ever to get to know the world and people her grandaunt knew, and to bring joy to their world in memory of the woman who was.

Wolfgang has lived all of his life under the shadow of his illegitimacy. He dwelt with a granduncle, a man who raised him like a son. He watched his granduncle live with the memory of a woman he couldn’t let go, even when death stole her from him. He could easily understand the attraction when he gazed at her portrait, but not the reasons. Not until he meets the woman who not only bares her name, but shares her beauty and personality.

As Wolfgang watches Janice from the doorway he not only sees a woman that resembles the lady he has admired in the portrait his granduncle coveted, but the woman he falls instantly in love with. Like his granduncle, he is determined to win her hand and love, no matter the cost, for despite the pretense of Janice’s appearance he knows that underneath the veneer beats the heart of a woman who will make him happy for the rest of eternity.
