Never pay full price again to escape into thousands of different mindscapes!
Definition of the "Fantasy Genre": As alluded to above, the primary components of bestselling Fantasy ebooks are the creation of a rich and expansive other world. While those other worlds can have aspects similar to our reality, the less so, the better. Ebooks in the Fantasy genre also use magic commonly, and include magical creatures in their plot lines. Perhaps one of the most important technical elements of a Fantasy ebook is that while the rules in the other world created by the author may not work in our reality, they are internally consistent to the story itself.
Some examples of bestselling Fantasy ebooks are George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones), J.R.R. Tolkien (Lord of the Rings), Brandon Sanderson (The Way of Kings), and Piers Anthony (his entire Xanth series). And, you know what? We are going to throw the movie The Neverending Story in here, because it had a book in it after all, and it's a premier example of fantasy.
“The best kind of dystopian novel: one rooted deeply in the hearts of his characters and emphasizing hope and connection over fear.… Compelling, realistic, and impossible to put down.”—Booklist
Four survivors come together as the country rebuilds in the aftermath of a devastating pandemic. With stunning foresight, this character-driven postapocalyptic suspense is an intimate, hopeful look at how people can move forward by creating something better.
How do you start over after the end of the world?
Six years after a virus wiped out most of the planet’s population, former pop star Moira is living under a new identity to escape her past—until her domineering father launches a sweeping public search to track her down. Desperate for a fresh start herself, jaded event planner Krista navigates the world for those still too traumatized to go outside, but she never reaches out on her own behalf. Rob has tried to protect his daughter, Sunny, by keeping a heartbreaking secret, but when strict government rules threaten to separate parent and child, Rob needs to prove himself worthy in the city’s eyes by connecting with people again.
Krista, Moira, Rob and Sunny meet by circumstance and their lives begin to twine together. When reports of another outbreak throw the fragile society into panic, the friends are forced to finally face everything that came before—and everything they still stand to lose. Because sometimes having one person is enough to keep the world going.
“This postapocalyptic slice-of-life novel delivers big emotions by keeping the focus small… By foregrounding family, Chen manages to imbue his apocalypse with heart, hope, and humanity. Sci-fi fans will delight in this lovingly rendered tale.”—Publisher’s Weekly
They're stranded beyond the known stars. Will Peter Dawe’s perilous mission with a brother he despises end in death?
A lost starship’s settlers, isolated on an uncharted alien world, manage to terraform a mountain-ringed valley into a rich replica of Earth. Despite their success reproducing the environment they need to survive and thrive, only tenuous forces hold together the human colony on the world of Not What We Were Looking For. The governor’s appropriation of the western settlers’ weapons for the city strains those bonds to breaking point—and then beyond when Peter Dawe’s father sends him to get the weapons back.
Twenty-year-old Peter Dawe’s restless nature easily endures the lost colony world’s rigors. His genetic modifications make it even easier. So when Peter retrieves the family weapon, he also brings back a motorbike, a piece of technology no longer available to everyone.
It would be a fine prize to keep to himself. He won it. He earned it. He quickly learns that his brother Simon lies in wait to take what isn’t his. Simon wants more than just the motorbike. He wants Peter’s glory.
But when Peter’s father forces him to take his hated older brother on Peter’s next mission, the pair must not only navigate the city’s perils and politics but learn to work together—when neither thinks the other should be in charge. Their success—and their very lives—depend on it. Or will Peter be proven right that he should have faced this task alone?

The first book in the Dragons of Esternes Epic fantasy series.
Interview with the Author
Q - So, what makes the Dragons of Esternes series special?
A - I don't think there's just one thing that sets them apart because what I wanted to do was to write the kind of book that I like to read when it comes to fantasy. My favourites usually involve dragons and my first read was Anne McCaffreys' Dragonriders of Pern, though movies like Dragonheart and Dragonslayer certainly appealed to me too.
Of course the Dragonflight books aren't technically fantasy but in a similar way the Patterners World, which is where these books are set, also have a very strong scientific background, although in this case it really is pure fantasy.
I don't like books with padding, to be honest, I don't think anyone does. That's one thing you won't find here. The stories are taut and fast-paced, they will keep you turning the pages - there's never a dull moment.
Then with a POC lead character and a wealth of interesting supporting characters, plus a unique take on Dragons themselves I don't think there's much not to like.
Q - What order should I read the books in?
A - There's just the four books and this is the order:
- Rebel Dragon
- Outlaw Dragon
- Heretic Dragon
- Battle Dragon
There is a prequel "Racing Dragon" but that's only available to my newsletter subscribers.
Q - So, who should give these books a try?
A - Anyone who wants a unique approach to fantasy, in a world that is both familiar and utterly different. But ultimately anyone who loved Anne McCaffrey's Pern books, Anne McCaffrey, Christopher Paolini's Eragon series, or writers like Naomi Novik and Robin Hobb. Or maybe they just want to have their own dragons like Daenerys Targaryen.
