Here Casts No Shadow explores the impact of war, exile and trauma on a family and the consequences of a single act of revenge. This is a story of war and refuge, told from a woman's perspective. Fifteen year old Mira lives a quiet life in the small town of Zazour. Her country of Lyrian is under the grip of a ruthless dictator but the political situation has little impact on Mira's daily life until she witnesses her brother's friend, Tam, shot dead in the street. Mira has never had a romantic relationship with Tam but she has always loved him from afar. As war intensifies and the dictator's grip hardens, Zazour is bombed and friends disappear. Mira enlists the help of her brother, Kaz, in a terrible act of vengeance for Tam's death. Shortly after, the family is forced to flee, surviving hardship and camp life before finally settling in the safety of Neeland, thousands of miles from home. But will Mira's past now catch up with her and threaten to destroy the life she has built for herself?

THEY WERE MEN BORN TO FIGHT. IF GOD WILLED THAT ANTIOCH WAS THE PLACE WHERE THEY GAVE UP LIFE, SO BE IT Thanks to the stratagems of Bohemund de Hauteville, leader of the Apulian Normans, the Crusade has taken the city of Antioch, and just in time. Once the besiegers, Bohemund and his men are about to become the besieged - a huge Turkish-led army, commanded by the fearsome General Kerbogha, is fast approaching. Provisions are needed to support not only the army, but also thousands of camp followers and pilgrims. But the surrounding countryside is near barren and the storerooms of Antioch much depleted. It soon becomes obvious that the Crusaders cannot hold out for long without falling prey to starvation. And for Bohemund and his nephew Tancred there is another difficulty: the dissent between the Crusade leaders has broken out into the open, with the wealthy Provencal magnate Raymond of Toulouse stirring up conflict. If the Christian host is fighting on two fronts, so is Bohemund himself. With the enemy Turks at his front and his warring peers at his back, can he gain the mighty city of Antioch once and for all? Only one of the greatest battles of the age will decide.

A collection of four stories set in the World War Two and immediate post-war years, featuring men of the Royal Navy. The stories, though fictional, are loosely based on actual events, and on people with whom the author long ago once served. Two of the stories give glimpses into what life must have been like aboard submarines of those days, while the two other more light-hearted stories tell of adventures ashore.

#1 Amazon Best Seller! Dystopian Alternate History: An ambitious feat of engineering and a continent in crisis For fans of Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle and Stephen King's 11/22/63, comes an epic saga by YouTuber Cody Franklin (Alternate History Hub), with contributions from YouTuber Joseph Pisenti (Real Life Lore). In an alternate timeline, World War II never takes place. Instead, a plan is put into effect by Hitler and the Nazi party to drain the Mediterranean Sea. They promise fertile land, millions of jobs and endless energy. New land to be settled. Living space for a crowded continent. All of Europe came together and signed a treaty to realize this new world, it was called `The Atlantropa Articles' Nazism Survives in A New Europe: by promising to bring endless energy through hydro-electricity and employing millions to build the dams, fascism only cements itself as a mainstream ideology. Hitler is seen as a modern Napoleon, one of the greats for his time. Nazism never disappears. The Reich Remains Eternal: Two millennia later, the Reich run the world. Aryans have become a race of their own, out numbering their neighbors and ruling with a messianic passion towards Hitler. Europe has been united under the banner of the swastika. The Sea Is Gone, the Promise Failed: But the plan of a fertile lush land was never realized. The project took decades longer than anticipated. By the time it is completed, what they find is a salty barren world. Now the Mediterranean Sea is a desert basin known only as the Kiln. Southern Europe has been abandoned. This is where Ansel's story begins. A story of discovery, lies and false prophets. The Atlantropa Articles is an astounding science fiction, alternate history tale that will thrill and transport readers with its detailed world and startling intimacy.
