English https://muses-success.info/modern-magick---the-fifth-britain-book-4 https://muses-success.info/modern-magick---the-fifth-britain-book-4 Thu, 21 Jun 2018 15:20:05 +0000 weblit fantasy adventure [CDATA[ As an agent of the Society for Magickal Heritage, Cordelia “Ves” Vesper has an important job: to track down and rescue endangered magickal creatures, artefacts, books and spells wherever they are to be found. It’s a duty that takes her the length and breadth of Britain, and frequently gets her into trouble. But somebody’s got to keep magick alive in the modern world, and Ves is more than equal to the job. Cast away from the Society (sort of) and out on their own, Ves, Jay and Zareen face their greatest challenge yet. What is the truth behind the mysterious, perambulatory Spire? Is it really possible to travel in time? What dangerous secrets are the Hidden Ministry keeping? Answers must be found — in the face of severe opposition from the Ministry, from Ancestria Magicka, and from every Fae Court in existence. Simple. If only everything wouldn’t keep going wrong. If only a house hadn’t walked off with Jay. If only there wasn’t still a traitor on the loose, and if only Ancestria Magicka wasn’t always, inevitably up to no good. With the trusty trio down to two, Ves and Zareen call in the Baron for help. Their mission: track down a vanishing island, save the Striding Spire, and find the way back to 1789. Oh — and just what exactly has become of Jay...? ]] Modern Magick - The Striding Spire (Book 3) by Charlotte E. English https://muses-success.info/modern-magick---the-striding-spire-book-3 https://muses-success.info/modern-magick---the-striding-spire-book-3 Thu, 21 Jun 2018 15:18:30 +0000 weblit fantasy adventure [CDATA[ As an agent of the Society for Magickal Heritage, Cordelia “Ves” Vesper has an important job: to track down and rescue endangered magickal creatures, artefacts, books and spells wherever they are to be found. It’s a duty that takes her the length and breadth of Britain, and frequently gets her into trouble. But somebody’s got to keep magick alive in the modern world, and Ves is more than equal to the job. Fresh from an involuntary crash course in the Stranger Arts, Ves has a new mystery to solve: the inexplicable reappearance of an extinct species. The Dappledok Pup has not been seen in the flesh since the eighteenth century - so how does one come to be found, weak but alive, over two hundred years later? A creature with a unique talent for sniffing out treasure, no less, and that can’t be a coincidence. Where did the pup come from - and is there something sinister afoot? Aided by a talking book, a spriggan with a taste for vintage fashion and the best Waymaster in the business, nothing can stop Ves from finding out the truth. Can it? ]] Modern Magick - Toil and Trouble (Book 2) by Charlotte E. English https://muses-success.info/modern-magick---toil-and-trouble-book-2 https://muses-success.info/modern-magick---toil-and-trouble-book-2 Thu, 21 Jun 2018 15:16:57 +0000 weblit fantasy supernatural [CDATA[ In the 21st century, little remains of magick save scattered, beleaguered pockets of magickal community and scholarship - and a vast, but rapidly decaying, heritage. How can any of it survive the pace of modern life? Having rescued an immensely valuable book from a long-lost library, Jay's joy turns to dismay when it proves to be unusually... chatty, and possessed of a fine, filthy vocabulary besides. What manner of enchantment created such a strange and powerful book is a mystery to the Society, but Ves is determined to solve it. She’s not the only one. The organisation known as Ancestria Magicka might be brand new, but they can more than rival the Society in power - and they badly want the book. But why are they so interested in its long-dead creator? Up to her eyeballs in grave-robbers, necromancers and thieves, there’s only one thing Ves can do: call in the Toil and Trouble department... ]] Modern Magick - The Road to Farringale (Book 1) by Charlotte E.

Simple in theory, tricky in practice, for the only place that might hold the information they need is the ancient and inconveniently lost enclave of Farringale... ]] Too Many Humans by Jacob Rayne https://muses-success.info/too-many-humans https://muses-success.info/too-many-humans Tue, 19 Jun 2018 21:22:32 +0000 weblit horror sci-fi [CDATA[ Too Many Humans takes place in the near future where the results of over-population give rise to questions with brutal and disturbing answers. ]] Mother of Exiles by Noah Buchanan https://muses-success.info/mother-of-exiles https://muses-success.info/mother-of-exiles Mon, 18 Jun 2018 23:05:38 +0000 weblit superhero mystery [CDATA[ Earlier today, in Manhattan, nine very different people began an attack on New York. They fought with coordination, with relentless strength, and with supernatural abilities. After the attack, the nine attempted to escape New York City out to sea, but were stopped by the authorities. When questioned, they revealed that not only did they have no idea why they had done what they had done, but that they had no idea where their powers had come from. These nine are then unwillingly thrust into the infinitely complex world of the supernatural that turns unseen beneath the everyday. It’s a world of secret societies and government agencies, a world of mutants and extra terrestrials, a world of wizards and gods, a world of mad scientists and sentient machines. It’s a world that wants them dead. If they are to survive and discover what happened to them that day, it is not enough that they understand this new world. They must understand each other, and themselves. They must learn who they were, and what they have become. Mother of Exiles is the story of nine villains who are trying to be heroes. Of nine monsters who are trying to be human. Of nine wrecks who are trying to be a family. - Mother of Exiles is a speculative fiction web serial that combines elements of the science fiction, fantasy, and superhero genres. It draws a lot of inspiration from superhero comicbooks and written fiction, most notably the Marvel Universe and the web serial Worm, by Wildbow. Though it does have a lot of fun, sci-fi / fantasy elements (there’s fight scenes, super powers, and huge secrets that unfold), the story is pretty grounded a lot of the time, so please don’t expect a climactic fight complete with pithy one-liners every chapter. Not to say of course that there won’t be climactic fights complete with pithy one-liners, just less often than you might expect. In terms of tone, there’s quite a bit of swearing, some depictions of violence (though rarely graphic), and sexual subjects are referenced. Outside of that, there are a lot of ‘adult themes’ that aren’t swearing, violence, or sex that get depicted. I won’t say that children shouldn’t read it (I read some pretty age-inappropriate stuff as a child), but please use common sense. Feel free to leave comments and input. The table of contents can be found here, but if you’d prefer to just read the first chapter, you can find it here. New chapters are posted every Monday and Friday. Enjoy the story.
