Legendary island warrior Iuti Manu is seeking refuge from her murderous brothers across the Empty Sea. Accompanied by Tarawe, the Storm Caller, Iuti flees her brothers' revenge for destroying the family's totem, the shark god. But the sea does not live up to its name. On what is supposed to be an empty, wet wasteland is a distant island. On this island mirage, the earth is rumbling and the dolphins are battling the birds for possession of the air as well as the sea. The only inhabitants are bloodthirsty bird-worshippers who are searching for a fresh sacrifice. Iuti must battle her nemesis alone, but only when the Storm Caller has mastered the art of controlling the winds and water. Together they help repair the broken magic of the sea.

Safety is not meant for Sadie: After the Forgotten Waters wash her away, she finds her way to shore, travels through a burnt forest, and finds refuge in a small cabin. That is, she finds refuge until the angry Queen of Ashthoreth, determined to destroy Sadie, drags her down through the Valley of Mud. With unexpected help from a trusted friend, Sadie manages to escape, but soon finds herself in front of yet another enemy: Serpythia.

In one final act of resistance, Stadie stabs the serpent. Before it perishes, though, it swallows her. She travels through Serpythia’s belly and finds an entire world inside, containing all those who were swallowed over the years and were never able to leave.

Is this Sadie’s final journey? Is this where her road comes to an end? Or is there something more to discover, something hidden within the living walls that now contain her?

This book is intended for mature audiences and contains disturbing content that may cause the reader to delve into his or her own land of fantasy…just like Sadie. 

This ebook contains the twenty-second and twenty-third novellas in Nicole Arlyn’s epic dark fantasy series, The Sugarspear Chronicles.



Praise for The Sugarspear Chronicles:

"This book is to the literary world now what Wes Anderson films are in a world full of Magic Mike movies. It will challenge you…But if you open your mind and stretch back to the bygone era of literary symbolism that was Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying, you will appreciate the shining jewel that is this book.” —A.D. Marrow, author of Chaos and Moonlight, Book One of the Order of the Nines series
As her journey continues, Sadie boards a ship guided by a pirate called Half Moon. He leads her through treacherous waters and tells her stories of how the map to Revelathia came to be.
 
With his help, Sadie finds the key to a treasure chest that contains treasures beyond jewels, but soon after she is swept away by fierce tides to a fairy-tale island with a mysterious angel. Once Sadie returns to the ship, she is reunited with the orphans who escaped the clutches of Princess Faegeria, but when they hit rough storms, she falls off, plunging for miles until she lands in…Muddlewoods. 
 
…Or at least she thinks it’s Muddlewoods. Some things seem a bit different, but some things haven’t changed at all. Soon enough, Sadie wants an escape from Muddlewoods, but also from her childhood and from her life. Relying on her willow tree once more for help, can Sadie outlast death and disappointment long enough to get to the Promised Land?

This book is intended for mature audiences and contains disturbing content that may cause the reader to delve into his or her own land of fantasy…just like Sadie.

NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.
