To End A War nearly a thousand years ago a great warrior named Lachlan sought to unify his people, using the power of the Three Swords of Destiny. Before his victory, Lachlan was killed by his trusted friend, Allarun. Now, Allarun is still in power but haunted by dreams of Lachlan’s death curse: that Lachlan would return to avenge his death. Allarun’s decision is to destroy the very people Lachlan tried to unite. Only two men have the power to stop the slaughter. Romarin, the last of a line of kings, and a half-blood mercenary named Shadowhelm. One may be destined to be Lachlan, but can they unlock the secret to Lachlan’s power before Allarun kills them? “Prophecy Of Swords is a remarkably rich fantasy that takes you into new realms of wonder and imagination. The battles and magic portrayed here full of excitement and intrigue. It’s hard to find a good fantasy that isn’t a rehash of all that has been done before, but Margaret H. Bonham has managed to break the mold and give readers something totally unique and different. A guaranteed winner.” — Laura J. Underwood, author of Ard Magister, Chronicles Of The Last War, and forthcoming Dragon’s Tongue and Wandering Lark “In Prophecy Of Swords, Bonham has written an enjoyable and intriguing novel, filled with believable characters and a rich, satisfying plot. I look forward to the next book in the series with great anticipation.” — Karen E. Taylor, author of The Vampire Legacy series. — brought to you by Podiobooks.com

What are “podiobooks”?
The term podiobooks was coined by Evo Terra to describe serialized audio books which are made available in podcast format. Listeners to Podiobooks.com can choose to receive the episodes of their books via an RSS feed or by listening to episodes by directly downloading episodes from this site. Some listeners keep the audio files on their computers, some transfer the book to CD, but most transfer the file on to their mp3 player so they can listen no matter where they are.
Why are the books on Podiobooks.com free of charge? Many authors do this to get exposure for their work, others do it in the hopes you’ll buy their next work in development. Still others simply do it for the sheer joy of writing. And while it’s not required, you have the option to donate money to the author of your choice. When you consider that audio books run usually 50% more than their hardcover counterparts… we hope you’ll be generous. Authors receive 75% of all the proceeds from the donations from listeners. The smaller portion goes to the maintenance and upkeep of Podiobooks.com. Click here for more info.
TruckerRich Says: I love this service. Wheather your a listener or an author Podiobooks is an Awesome Resource. The team a podiobooks does an super job, so many books so little time.
“One Among The Sleepless” is a contemporary fiction novel set in Brighton, England about sex, death and noisy neighbors: a thriller with a rich vein of dark humor that flows from both the narrative and the dialogue of the characters. It’s a largely character-driven story; the people and their various shifting relationships compel the plot forward through sometimes subtle, sometimes brutal plot twists towards the final, nail-gnawing climax.
My Take: Mike has written a bizzare tale of the neighbors we love to hate. A great story that keep me on the edge of my seat. Great job Mike! Available from Podiobooks,iTunes and mikebennettpodcast.com
Some places are far darker than deep space. Places where the shadows smile. Where men go mad and lovers go missing. These stygian corners of existence are where reality is stretched thin and something hungry is waiting just outside the corner of your eye.
Turn out the lights, take a deep breath, and dare to visit one of these places.
Crescent is dark science fiction at it’s most visceral. Phil Rossi weaves a tale that is reminiscent of old school Stephen King but with a shiny, new set of tricks and an appetite to terrify. There’s sex. There’s corruption. There’s horror. And after you sweat your way through the first chapter, there’s plenty more to keep you awake at night.
My Take: Phil has written a very scary tale. There’s something haunting Cresent Station and it will have the hairs on your neck standing at attention. Great sound effects and Phil has written and composed the music as well. You’ll love some of the characters and hate some others. Will they get what they deserve? Get Crescent from Podiobooks or iTunes and visit Phil Rossi site at crescentstation.net.
Notes from the Vault Crescent Vignettes as well as new Vignettes and other short fictionis also avaiable at Podiobooks and iTunes. EDEN by Phil Rossi click here: TruckerRich.com
In a hardboiled dystopian future, one major American city has been divided in two. Separated by much more than a river, one side is an unfinished technological marvel populated by mega-skyscrapers where the wealthy live, work, and play. The other is a forsaken wasteland where order is strictly maintained by a rogue group of cleric soldiers known as the street preachers. But this dichotomy is about to change. Slowly, quietly, clandestine forces are working to undermine the small piece of redemption the street preachers have brought to their concrete flocks. In the face of watching their second chance crumble to dust, some will fight to stop it. Others will kill to make it happen.
A bold experiment in podcast fiction, The Failed Cities Monologues are told from the shifting perspectives of the characters who inhabit this world, twisted noir archetypes and cyberpunk warriors. Their lives and their stories are linked together by conspiracy, fate… and blood. This story is for mature Audiences
TruckerRich Says: This story is told by it characters 8 different points of view. A brilliant story told with excellent delivery. Very Awesome, I highly recommend.
