“Dreadlands weaves Viking lore, animalistic-shape-shifting (wolves), and coming-of-age adventure into a fantasy epic.” –Kirkus Reviews
Arud Bergson is forced to leave his Viking home in the Outlands after a shape-shifting wolf attacks. He is expected to cross the realm with his sister Lykke before the next full moon. Along the way, he meets a beautiful girl who steals his heart, although he questions her motives. Arud’s world is shaken and family deceptions unravel, when he learns Lykke may be the key in a century old prophecy and a sorceress may be stalking them. The stakes are raised, and getting safely to the city in the sea becomes more than a quest. It becomes survival. Dreadlands explores the balance between love of family and a coming of age romance, compared to Twilight and the Shanarah Chronicles.

“Jaimie Engle brings “The Dredge” to an exciting, unexpected, and ultimately satisfying ending.”
Sean Marrok, a young miner who is known only by an assigned number, lives in the Dredge under the controlling thumb of the Regime. After his shift in the mine, he goes to a local club to let off steam and drink a few Stingers. He decides to place a two-million to one bet and the dice lands its mark on the winning number. But at what cost? His big win attracts the attention of the casino owner, Ambrosia. Instead of turning Marrok over to the authorities, Ambrosia releases him to the charming Chantelle who escorts him to the back exit and away from Regime soldiers. But Marrok is framed for destroying Regime property and finds himself on a commuter ship to the prison on Roan. Instead of landing on Roan, the ship is ambushed and crash landed at the secret base of the Network, where he once again runs into the exotic woman, Ambrosia. She believes he is destined to be the Savior of the people, the one to overthrow the Regime. Will Marrok see what’s to come? Or will his third eye be blinded by his own decisions? A dark science-fiction novella weaving magic with manipulation that shows what happens when the oppressed have had enough and rise up to fight.
