The Empire of Meredith has waged war against the Veil Queen for over a thousand years. However, the struggle is unequal. Protected by the Veil, an impenetrable boundary of magic, the Veil Queen preys on the Empire’s citizens. The ceaseless raids have allowed her to build an enormous army of melds, monstrous creatures who are a fusion of humans and beasts.
Then a way is found through the magical partition. An invasion is launched to defeat the Dark Queen. But she’s had centuries to plot treachery. Is the open portal real or a misdirection, another of her evil schemes?
Alexandria’s new husband, Prince Tal, has wielded his formidable magic repeatedly in the struggle. But the key to victory may not lie with his power, but with Alex’s wild and unpredictable magic. If she can discover a way to control it, they have a chance to end the war and destroy the Veil. It requires only two things.
Find the Veil Queen…and kill her.
Michael is joined by the Underground Authors to create this one-of-a-kind anthology - Beyond The Sea: Stories From The Underground
One photograph - A single image - A lonely boat on the edge of sea
Is it adrift? - Was it abandoned? - Did it wash ashore? - Was anyone aboard? Did someone leave it behind? - Is anyone coming back? - Who knows.
The sea has washed the footprints away.
Look at the vessel and think: “If that old boat could talk, what stories it would tell.” Wonder no longer. Twelve members of Underground Authors all gazed upon the same image. And to each the photograph told a different story. Same boat. Same image. Different genres.
From mystery and technothriller to romance and magical realism, from horror and historical fiction to fantasy and suspense with a little paranormal thrown in for good measure.
These stories are presented in Beyond The Sea and are the handiwork of award-winning authors C.J. Peterson, Cindy Davis, Rox Burkey & Charles Breakfield, CW Hawes, Richard Schwindt, Ronald E. Yates, Kelly Marshall, N.E. Brown, Linda Pirtle, James R. Callan, Michael Scott Clifton, and Caleb Pirtle III.
The stories are all different as the boat had more than one secret to tell. It had a dozen.
The Underground Authors decided to dedicate the proceeds from 2021 sales of Beyond The Sea to a group that supports communities. Team Rubicon. To learn more about them, go to: https://teamrubiconusa.org/
