BLURB

A disgraced former constable is forced to travel to Freewilds in order to unravel the mystery of The Cult of Ebon.

In a refugee shantytown on the outskirts of a vast and opulent imperial capital city, an insidious sect of demon worshippers, the Cult of Ebon, began to prey upon the Gathered, a diverse group of refugees displaced from their nations in the aftermath of a mad tyrant’s ceaseless wars of conquest, long ago.
 Unwilling to overlook these heinous crimes against a vulnerable, underserved populace, Constable Lukarde Alfans began an investigation that brought him far too close to the truth, leading him to become the cult’s next target. In order to derail his investigation, the enigmatic leader of the cult framed Lukarde for the grisly murder of a woman whose psychic gifts had been invaluable in his investigations.
The disgraced former constable, haunted by the lingering trauma of all he had seen and endured during his investigations, was chased into exile with his life in utter ruins. He must travel far to the southern reaches, to the Freewilds, in search of a new start and, perhaps, a chance to unravel the mysteries surrounding the Cult of Ebon, bringing them to justice, clearing his good name, and silencing the horrors that plague his mind whenever he closes his eyes.

Perfect Halloween Read

There’s something strange happening when you read this book.
Are you willing to try it?

The book is free to get into the seasonal SPIRIT.

Forget every horror story you have ever read. This one will scare the life out of you—literally. The shocked and horrified residents of Peacedale, R.I. panic and flee the town and the state as gruesome murders suddenly start taking place on New Year’s Day, 2098. The entire planet is on edge as these killings spread to every country ignoring race, creed, color, and status. No one is safe from being broiled and charred in a horror tale that turns the entire Witch and Wicca community of Salem, Massachusetts upside-down. Can a team of ghost debunkers find the answers before more victims are sliced, diced, and broiled? Good thing they have Edgar, Athana’s Raven, to help guide the way.

This book is an homage to every Occult, Witch, Ghost, and Werewolf movie, novel, and tales of lore spread and told throughout the ages. Ash is dedicated to those souls who were wrongly persecuted during the 17th-century witch trials and beyond. Even people thought to be Werewolves were murdered across Europe, England, and America. How did the phrase we now know as a “witch-hunt” really gain momentum? You will be shocked as we uncover the final truth. Athana sets out to right the wrongs done to settlers of the New World 400 years ago along with her coven, The Austin Circle of Witches.

Ash is rated “H” for Horror and is restricted (R). If you have a weak heart, a medical condition, or get easily nauseated, we beg you not to read this novel. Please head to our website and download our ‘Ash Waiver of Liability’ before reading this novel. This is a highly charged psychoactive novel causing some of our beta readers to experience nightmares, night terrors, and even strange sounds in their presence while reading this novel.

What the readers are saying

***** CG Blade has written the scariest story I have read. When I Recieved my book I also Recieved a disclaimer form to sign. I loved the witches . the storyline is awesome. He has not disappointed with this one.

***** Amazing story! I am buying the rest of this author’s works. I cannot recommend this enough. I have been a sci fi fan for a very long time and I love this style. Old school, fast paced pulp style adventure upgraded to a modern world.

***** This main story revolves around a town with a supernatural and fire-spewing historic “issue” that not many folks seem to be aware of. But the ones that are…well, they’re to dangerous to get close to!

***** This bone chilling modern horror tale will startled the toughest. The characters are so well developed and written. The ending is everything!!! It perfect sets up the next book. I really want to spoil it, but I won’t. I’ll say this, nothing is final.

Don’t forget to download the Waver Of Libility form on the Pseudosynth website.

Excerpt

“Father,” he grinned. “What’s with the next valley over? It’s like winter over there, all cold and dark.”

“Evil is there, don’t say you…”

“No, I stayed in the forest father. I didn’t like the look of it.”

“Good, remember to stay away, too,” he scolded.

“Evil? What type of evil lives close to us?”

“Why so interested Caspian?”

“I – I heard a girl singing with such a pure voice, it was beautiful.”

“Pure evil,” he frowned. “Stay away, the witches don’t like strangers, most never come back.”

“Don’t worry father, I was only wondering.”

“Remember, curiosity killed the cat.”

They entered the house, grabbing a drink of ale each as they sat waiting for their dinner.

‘You want to know who I am? Well, let’s see!

I’m British born and bred, although I have lived most of my life in New Zealand. Sweet as? (Kiwi Saying) I love New Zealand, best little country in the world today, though I’m sure others will have different opinions.

First and foremost, I am a wife and mother of four children, though we lost our youngest 17 years ago. My husband and I have been married for 28 years this year. Our two eldest daughters are in the UK having their OE (Overseas Experience as they call them in Kiwiland). My son is about to start university to study architecture.

This will be the first time my husband and I will have true freedom to do as we wish, when we wish, without the phrase “Get a room” from the kids with our reply of “Don’t need one. Got a house.” And that was just about kissing…lol. Kids these days!

I am a Family History Researcher and have been for the past twenty years. I fell into writing in 2012 and became a multi-genre author because the muses…yeah more than one…wouldn’t shut the up. I have published over thirty books and have over a hundred drafts on my computer. My main genres are Children’s Adventure Stories, Young Fantasy, Young Adult Fantasy, New Adult Murder Mystery Romance under my own name. Under my pen name of Beth Bayley, I write Contemporary Billionaire Romance (reverse aka the woman is the billionaire) as well as a set of Mythical Welsh stories. I also have one wayward muse who I call Chloe King who is an Erotic Author. Pain in the … and a nympho. Meanwhile, I’ll stay prudish, thanks.

In 2014 I set up my own Publishing Company called Plaisted Publishing House Ltd, which now runs an Author Assist program for Formatting, Editing and Book Covers. We’ve helped over 32 clients in various different ways. We also do Family History Books.

I join EE last year, though I have only recently found the time to get my first book sorted. It is called ‘The Dark Valley’ by Claire Plaisted and is about a young woman who is strong in nature.
