After years of running down dead-end clues, the rogue Never has nearly given up his quest for answers; his blood is cursed and his true name a mystery, yet no library, no healer and none who claim to know dark magics have ever been able to help.
Until he steals a map to the mysterious Amber Isle, which might just hold the answers he needs.
But Never isn't the only one who wants the map – his enemy, Commander Harstas, also seeks it and Harstas craves revenge for the deaths of his men.
Forced to flee through a war zone, Never soon stumbles across a group of treasure-hunters hoping to discover the wonders of the Amber Isle for themselves. But the deeper they venture into the Isle, the more deadly it grows.
Trapped between the greed of the treasure hunters, cunning traps in the Isle itself, the threat of Harstas' fury and his own desperation to finally uncover answers, Never must find a way to unlock the Isle's ancient secrets and escape - or perish without ever learning the truth.
The Book of Never (1-5) brings together Never's complete adventures as he searches for the truth behind his mysterious heritage and the curse on his blood.
It's been 15 years since the bombs fell. Those who survive scrape by in constant fear of famine, murderous marauders, and worse: the raknoth. No one knows what they are or where they came from. Only that they destroyed the world. And now they rule what's left. Jarek Slater never lost sleep over the fact. He had his ship. He had his exosuit. He went where he pleased, dealt justice where he saw fit. Life was good. Simple. But then someone had to go and steal his exosuit. And you just don't steal another man's exosuit. When Jarek's only lead turns out to be locked up in a raknoth stronghold, though, things get interesting. When that lead's big sis shows up waving around a silver staff, smacking around grown men with telekinesis, and stopping bullets in mid-air, things get, well, more interesting. And when the two of them get drawn into a race across the post-apocalyptic country to save her brother and find his suit... Look, suffice it to say Jarek didn't sign up for this crap. Energy-bending arcanists? Red-eyed space vampires? Teamwork? Oh, and then there's that mysterious alien artifact that might just bring on the second apocalypse. No. Jarek sure as crap didn't sign up for this. And neither did his fiery new friend. But together, they might just be strong enough to pull it off. Assuming they don't kill each other first...

It's all very well and good destroying the world, extinguishing any spark of hope, and ruling with an iron grip of fear and black magic. But nobody told the witch that running an administration of evil would be just so… dreary. Bored with solving little people's problems and the petty squabbles of her beastly advisors, the witch quits, leaving the world in a much worse state than she found it with a new evil quest. It's time to learn how to be a good person.
There's just one teensy-tiny little problem… Being good doesn't come easily – after all, it's much easier to sacrifice babies and summon hideous demons to get things done. Seeking out her old nemesis, a legendary-hero-turned-academic (who she only imprisoned and tortured a little bit), she gives him an outlandish proposition: to help her make a dazzling transformation from wicked witch to good. It's an offer he can't refuse. The odd couple have a long, perilous journey ahead of them and a lot of psychological hang-ups to work through.
Can an evil witch ever truly be reformed – and what could possibly go wrong when you're relying on your nemesis to be your BFF?

The Seventh Dimension Series Full Box Set includes The Door, The King, The Castle, The City, The Prescience, and The Howling. The Seventh Dimension Series has won over thirty-five book awards. "Time is an illusion until God's appointed time," is the major theme based on A.W. Tozer's quote in The Pursuit of God: "A spiritual kingdom lies all about us, enclosing us, embracing us, altogether within reach of our inner selves, waiting for us to recognize it. God Himself is here waiting our response to His Presence. This eternal world will come alive to us the moment we begin to reckon upon its reality." The two young protagonists, Shale Snyder, an American, and Daniel Sperling, an Israeli, meet in the seventh dimension--a reality outside of time. Their love for each other is conflicted over their opposing spiritual beliefs that seem irreconcilable. The story covers many years as the young couple matures.

When orphan Crystal visits a great aunt she's just met in Blacksville, West Virginia, she sets some rules for herself:
#1 - Don’t get too close to anyone.
#2 – Don’t expect too much.
#3 - Don’t fall for the town’s bad boy like everyone else.
While she finds the last one frustrating, Crystal has no intention of giving into any weaknesses. That is until she’s told there’s a curse that’s been running through her family for generations, and it seems the one she needs to avoid is the key to bringing it to an end.
Now all bets are off. Only a single line separates her from the side of magical beings, and she’s crossing it. But she learns rules are in place for a reason.
The hidden world in the seemingly small and innocent town goes far beyond the one she knows and understands. It’s a world where humans once visited and have been warned not to return.

A masterful race of magic users called Ecrutians once lived on earth. They held a divine eminence over humans, using them as pawns in a game of chess. As the old ways were no longer accepted by most, Ecrutians grew soft and lackadaisical and allowed attitudes of pride and self-importance to consume them. A lust for power overtook many with aggressive natures for destruction and harm to others. Rebellious Ecrutians created long-distance teleportation enchantments, and this once peaceful race of spellcasters began to explore other planets in search of others to dominate with their magic. Thie, one of the most powerful Ecrutians, had natural abilities that gave the creation of life. His staff of gnarled, twisted wood infused with magical enchantments, too, held terrible spells. To maintain order and preserve Ecrutian life, Thie decides to join with three other powerful magic users to form one fearsome magical force so their lands might be saved.

Dark eyes with no pupils, he never smiled, and a scowl on his face always intimidated. A warrior in his soul, he fought deadly battles aga ...
