Thanksgiving Audio and Ebook Giveaway of R. M. Mulder’s “Conquest”

I have 5 ebooks and one audio free code for this wonderful book by R.M. Mulder.  Take advantage of this free offer while it lasts!  *Conquest was a fantastic book.  I read it back in June.  The audio narration is second to none.  I’ll be writing a review of the audio in the coming days.    Rated 4/5 stars on Amazon. 

An ancient continent is missing from Earth.
A primeval darkness threatens mankind.
A modern woman discovers her destiny.

When undercover agent Lily Thatcher is ordered to undergo a dangerous medical mind-wipe procedure prior to re-assignment, she avoids arrest and becomes a rogue agent. She quickly learns that there are much greater forces at work that are far beyond her comprehension.

Timur Demyan, formerly known as the feared Tamerlane of the ancient Tumurid Empire, has forged an alliance with a loathsome creature called the Leviathan. This beast’s insatiable hunger is currently being fed by another world’s few remaining souls.

For now.

Their paths meet at a showdown, but Lily knows that there’s far more at stake than just her mortality. A morbid question looms in the back of her mind:

Can she prevent Earth’s Apocalyptic Fate?

Editorial Reviews

Review

“…this wild ride is a medley difficult to describe. It’s a bit Game of Thrones as you enter the world of Zion and witness, much to my approval, dragons… The author shows his geek constructing a realm of computer based technology that would rival the Arrow’s Felicity Smoak.” – Ame Terra

“I loved this story because the characters are well written, and I can relate to much of what they go through, having been a role-player for years. Having been deeply immersed in game worlds for hours and weekends at a time, I respect that the author was able to express that disconnect with reality on coming out of the game world, and the reactions to finding themselves in a real version of the game world.” – Timothy Bateson
“Mr. Mulder has woven in strands from both the Old and New Testaments, dragons, conspiracy theories, nano technology, myths and legends about such diverse historical figures such as Elijah, Tamerlane, John the Apostle, and Noah to a cohesive adventure story.” – Mainer
“Combining elements of advanced software engineering, biblical references, conspiracy theories, and even dragon lore, this is a very innovative and entertaining take on the fantasy, scifi, and dimensional travel genres that will keep you guessing right to the end.” – Guillaume Boisette
“Such an enjoyable and captivating read with as many twists and turns as can be imagined. R. M. Mulder pulls you in with a deep and mysterious scene before dropping you off in the modern world of Earth. Mulder’s novel continues to surprise with every twist and turn of the story while still keeping the story grounded with his impeccable descriptions.” – Zora Marie
“Giving five stars because, well it was a good book and I think this writer has a lot of potential. It really cracked me up in spots, the apocryphal quotes started similarly enough to what you may see in things like the book of Enoch or Jasher but when they started to include warp drive technology I just laughed out loud and went along for the ride.” – D. Milne
“I really enjoyed this book. What an imaginative story that R. M. Mulder has woven together. I was riveted. A great tale of the eternal conflict of good vs evil, rounded out with some romance, heroes and a damsel in distress. I loved all the biblical references.” – Amazon Customer
“This is a definite must read if you like romance, dragons, heroes, good against bad and so much more! it’s loaded.” – T. Ward
“I think the author has an incredible concept going. The world he has created and the multiple conflicts are fascinating…” – Heidi Angell
“Reading Conquest was a lot like going to a good adventure film. A fun ride. I’m ready for the next one.” – Ian Mitchell

Terry Pratchett’s unfinished novels destroyed by steamroller | Books | The Guardian

The unfinished books of Sir Terry Pratchett have been destroyed by a steamroller, following the late fantasy novelist’s wishes. Pratchett’s hard drive was crushed by a vintage John Fowler & Co steamroller named Lord Jericho at the Great Dorset Steam Fair, ahead of the opening of a new exhibition about the author’s life and work. Pratchett, famous for his colourful and satirical Discworld series, died in March 2015.
