Product Description
Taerak's Void
(Book One of Fantastica)
A new series by multiple award winning author, M. R. Mathias

After finding a strange medallion and some maps with markings that no one in his village can understand, Braxton Bray decides to take it all to the Hall of Scholars in the kingdom's capital. But greed is everywhere. Braxton and a tough young female caravan guard named Nixy are forced to run for their lives, for someone else wants what Braxton found and is willing to go to great lengths to take it from him.

With a hefty, kingdom wide, bounty on their heads, not even the great wizards of the Sorcerious can help them. Left with nothing but each other, Braxton and Nixy have no choice but to get on a ship and go on an adventure that will take them places they would have otherwise never imagined. Elves, dwarves, giant gothicans, and trolls, treacherous forests on distant shores, love, death, terror, and magic all await...

Just wanted to run a suggestion by you guys.  ;) I thought that we should post pics (with the link maker) of the books we received as gifts. It would make it easier for the Secret Santas to decide who to gift books to. Some people may already have many books gifted to them where as others may only have 1 or 2. I'd like to be able to spread the wealth to those less gifted.... just a thought!

Consider this a place-holder, perhaps; but to summarize, I've received at least half a dozen gifts so far (thanks!), perhaps qualifying me for the first time in my life as being "really gifted". ;) But then I've been around here a long time and have become at least somewhat infamous, so by all means share the wealth with others before feeling obliged to buy me something.

I have received two books.

Also, some of the lists I have looked at have print books--folks might want to double-check and make sure all books are Kindle versions.

Got another one today, so I'm up to 7! With the 4 or 5 books in my T.B.R. folder and the rate I seem to read these days, this may get me through winter.  8)
