“Thought Power” in Valcoria: Awakenings
The battle for Amigus is over, and orphan-turned-hero, Yuiv, is settling into his life as junior lord of the house of Trauel. The loving family and peaceful life he’s so long yearned for seems to be within his grasp; that is until Yuiv starts having vivid nightmares. His glowing Kalyra eyes mark these dreams as supernatural, proof that he has the gift of Farsight—a power held only by the Al’Kalyra or Arch Sage.
As frightening as the idea of being Valcoria’s prophesied savior is, the terror of what Yuiv witnesses in his sleep is much worse. Pain, grief, blood and death descend upon him as he sees through the eyes of men, women, and even children who have been touched by the light of YaJiann.
The Children of the Crystal star are awakening, rising above turmoil and strife to embrace their destinies as defenders of Valcoria. But all light casts a shadow, and with the heroes come the horrors born of blood and shadow. A dark threat looms; monsters that are far closer than anyone realizes—anyone except for Yuiv. And the revelation is nearly too hard for him to bear as it can mean only one thing.
The battle with the darkness is not over. It has only just begun.
Set in the universe of Jason King’s Valcoria: Children of the Crystal Star, Thought Power follows thirteen-year-old Xandyra, who has the ability to hear and influence the thoughts of those around her, as she sets out to warn her cousin that a stranger on the street has revenge against him on their mind.

“The Armadillo’s Song” in Windows Into Hell
Mankind has speculated through the ages that a few righteous or lucky people go straight to heaven. Or so we’ve come to believe. Good or bad, our journey doesn’t end at death. For most of us, the afterlife begins in an office where an overworked and underappreciated demon decides our long term fate. Life is messy, it’s easy to miss one of the crucial lessons. In order to accommodate our unique shortcomings, a myriad of custom fitted Hells wait with open arms to teach us. No cliché fire and brimstone here, except as decorations. Besides, that would be the easy way out. Yes, there is a way out. All you have to do is learn one simple lesson. That shouldn’t be too hard, right?
Windows into Hell explores what awaits a few people when their life inevitably comes to an end. Featuring bestselling and award winning authors, these stories delve into humanity’s greatest fears- death and the fate of our immortal souls.
Sarah’s Story, “The Armadillo’s Song” appears in this anthology based on A Short Stay in Hell by Steven L. Peck. Published October 24, 2016 by Curiosity Quills Press.
