New Year Wishes


Toni Cox and the ELEMENTAL Trilogy - Cover Reveal!

Toni Cox, author of The Elemental Trilogy series has decided to rebrand and here is what they look like

Elemental Rising:

Maia, Elf princess of Elveron, has studied for almost a century to become a Prime Elemental but, when she finally completes her final test, which she had to take on Earth, something unexpected happens, and she brings with her the very thing she tried to leave behind.

Now she is faced with responsibilities she thinks she is not ready for, a love she does not reciprocate, and a threat to her people that might kill them all. Young, inexperienced, and unsure of her powers, she only has her desire to save her people that drives her into battle.

But she is not alone. She has her mentor, Silas, and her dragon, Midnight, who stand by her side as she embarks on an adventure to save not just herself, but the rest of the nation of Grildor as well.

Elemental Betrayal:

The nation of Grildor still reels from the War of Greystone. They spent the winter Moons mourning their dead. Now it is spring and time to drive the last of the enemy off their planet.

Maia has sunken into a pit of despair during the harsh Moons of Winter, not only mourning the people that died, but also the absence of Blaid. Would he ever come back to her?

Lord Longshadow, Lord Regent of Grildor, decides it is time to act and sends Maia and Jaik as ambassadors to the various cities within Grildor. The aim is to reassure the people that the Longshadow Clan is there to protect them, but as Maia and Jaik travel, they learn that the situation is far worse than they had anticipated.

They have been betrayed and their nation is threatened with war a second time. Desperately, she searches for the strength to save her people. And, although she has her dragon, Midnight to help her, the responsibility of being a Prime rests heavily on her shoulders.

Will her magic be strong enough to save them this time?

Forbidden Elemental:

Two battles are behind them and now the true war with the Vampyres is about to start. Elveron will succumb unless the Prime Elementals can become as one. 

Maia deserts her people to find Blaid, for only as one will they have the power to defeat the Vampyres amassing at Greystone. It is Forbidden for them to be together and yet their connection is all that stands between victory and eternal defeat. With her dragon, Midnight, Maia sets off on a journey that will change the future for everyone.

Lord Longshadow, the Lord Regent, invokes the Rule of Kings and travels to every country of Greater Grildor. He needs the Lords to pledge their armies. Jaik Longshadow rules in his father’s stead and faces the greatest test of his life, while Aaron Nightingale, believing he is the reason Maia left, races across Grildor to find her.

The arrival of winter means the Vampyres will be less active. Amid snow and ice, it is time for Elveron to prepare. But the Vampyres have a different agenda and winter will no longer stop them. As desperation and fear takes hold, Maia understands that to save her people she needs a new plan.

Will Blaid help her? Will she have enough time?


“Cox has created characters; a world; a story that is Tolkien worthy. She has developed something unique and rich in imagination.”  Sian B. Claven (Author of The Butcher books)
“Maia is an incredible character to follow. Toni Cox has managed to bring something new, exciting, and seriously addictive to the fore.” Robyn Victoria Castles (TBB)
“I fell in love with this world and its characters and became utterly invested in their trials and tribulations. Toni Cox has a wonderfully rich imagination and brings Elveron and the Elves, and Midnight the dragon, to glorious life. Utterly entrancing.” Elaina J. Davidson

A Christmas Nerd

It's time for another unveil of the stories inside the covers of ANOTHER BLOODY CHRISTMAS! This time we're talking about Joanne Sexton's A CHRISTMAS NERD, and a humdinger of a story it is.

This short story has a proper dash of romance in it, but it seems the serial killer is not done … there’s quite the surprising twist at the end of this … and I’m saying no more!

Tales of Victorian times have always interested me ,and when I read the introduction I was so excited I could barely wait to read this story,and it did not disappoint.It was so authentic,with bits of history thrown in,a complete delight to read.

Elaina J. Davidson

Ivy is finally living her dream,she’s on her own having just purchased the house she has always wanted. But sometimes,things are not what they seem and sometimes things are exactly what they seem to be. Fantastic short story with the perfect amount of fear thrown in for good measure.

The Sins of the Season
Richard Rhys Jones

A chilling tale that had me clinging to my kindle in anticipation of the next lines written.I loved this story.

Stocking Killer
Jillian Ward

A case of mistaken identity saves one life and takes another. Wow,this story was intense and filled with a nice touch of mystery. I even chuckled here and there at the dialogue.
Awesome story!!!

Christmas Nerd
Joanne Sexton

This story was awesome,and I enjoyed every page. I loved the way it made me guess who could have committed such atrocities,and was beyond pleased with the twist at the end. Romance and horror were melded into a great tale.

On The Twelfth Day of Christmas
Paul Rudd

A combination of Tron ,Jumanji, The Terminator and countless other movies this book is quite an adventurous read. From start to finish,it is absolutely excellent .

The Secret of Hungry Summit Mountains
Hannah Ferguson

Oh what a sad story this is.
It held me in suspense and I couldn’t read fast enough . It’s a tale of how life can change in the blink of an eye. It made me appreciate what I have,it’s a reminder that not everyone is fortunate enough to have happiness. A must read.

The Whispers of Christmas

This story started off so spooky,I was hooked right away. Angela’s dialogue had me laughing throughout the tale.The dynamic between Angela and her family was hilarious and rings true for lots of families. The best part is Angela solving the mystery of the wet shoe prints by her bed. I’m an avid believer in infinite realities so this story resonated deeply with me. What a joy it would be,to be able to access the right one for you.
This short story is excellent!!!

All in all I enjoyed every single story in this collection,it provided something for everyone,no matter what genre you like most,you will get a thrill from every tale told.
This collection is a must read,I highly recommend it.

Thank you, Monique, for a wonderful review!
