About Snow Globe Travelers: Samuel’s Legacy

A mysterious snow globe shop. A multiverse at war. And a girl searching for her father.

In the heart of Vienna, twelve-year-old Sarah Ann Reisende wanders into a mysterious shop where snow globes double as portals to other worlds. After breaking the globe tethered to Earth, she discovers a cryptic note scribbled on the back of a photograph. The note links her father, who left before her third birthday, to a place called Elohi. Could this be a chance to find her father at last?

Unable to return home, Sarah follows the lead into the world of Elohi. But an army of vicious hybrids led by a genetically engineered warrior named Malvine now rules the once peaceful planet, and she becomes a target as Malvine wants to use the shop’s connections to wage war.

Can Sarah uncover the truth behind her father leaving and find a way home before Malvine gains control of the shop?

Samuel’s Legacy is the first book in the Snow Globe Travelers series, a middle-grade science fiction adventure series.

The Story

Twelve-year-old Sarah Ann Reisende’s father left before her third birthday. She longs to find him, but she never expected the path would lead her across the galaxy and force her to confront her deepest fears.

In a darkened alleyway in the heart of Vienna, Sarah wanders into a mysterious shop where each snow globe opens a portal to another world. By mistake, she breaks the globe tethered to Earth. As she searches the shop for answers, she discovers a cryptic note on the back of an old photograph that indicates a link between her father and one of the other worlds.

Unable to return to home, Sarah follows the lead into the world of Elohi. But an invading military force of vicious hybrids led by a genetically-engineered warrior named Malvine now rules the once peaceful planet. Malvine is also one of the figures in the old photograph linked to her father.

Sarah’s presence does not go unnoticed, and she becomes a target. Malvine wants to use the shop’s connections to wage war.

Can Sarah uncover the truth and find a way home before Malvine gains control of the shop?

Cover Reveal for Faithless by Janeen Ippolito

Faithless releases on October 18th!!!

For any who aren’t familiar, Faithless is the next installment in the Ironfire Legacy, an inventive steampunk series aimed at new adults. You can check out my review of Lawless (book 1) and Priceless (book 1.5).

Here’s the blurb…

One wild night, Shance Windkeeper discovers he’s married to a death unicorn.

But that’s the least of his troubles.

As an agent for the Lawless, Shance is working with dragonshifters Kesia Ironfire and Zephryn Nightstalker, trying to end the dragon-human war and the organization that masterminded it. While on a mission in the Scepter of Knowledge, the Lawless is hit with a devastating death unicorn attack.

Out of the wreckage new allies emerge: Lirome Ukerys, and his twin sister Maira, the death unicorn queen—Shance’s long-lost wife.

Recently freed from captivity, Maira is fighting to regain control of her herd. Lurien Alistil, a rogue death unicorn, has bespelled the Scepter of Knowledge and taken Maira’s son. When Kesia unexpectedly challenges Lurien to a public debate, the Lawless has a chance to break the usurper’s hold. To obtain vital information they must infiltrate her lair—and as the husband of the death unicorn queen, Shance Windkeeper is the perfect prize to go in.

But Lurien’s power is stronger and more insidious than they realize. And if the final pieces of her plan fall into place, not even Shance’s newfound Talents and knowledge will be enough to stop her.

A steampunk fantasy adventure with much intrigue, unexpected romance, sudden tragedy, and a snarky cat-dragon.
