The second title in Rick Riordan's Trials of Apollo series - set in the action-packed world of Percy Jackson.The god Apollo, cast down to earth and trapped in the form of a gawky teenage boy as punishment, must set off on the second of his harrowing (and hilarious) trials. He and his companions seek the ancient oracles - restoring them is the only way for Apollo to reclaim his place on Mount Olympus - but this is easier said than done.Somewhere in the American Midwest is a haunted cave that may hold answers for Apollo in his quest to become a god again . . . if it doesn't kill him or drive him insane first. Standing in Apollo's way is the second member of the evil Triumvirate - a Roman emperor whose love of bloodshed and spectacle makes even Nero look tame. To survive the encounter, Apollo will need the help of a now-mortal goddess, a bronze dragon, and some familiar demigod faces from Camp Half-Blood. With them by his side, can Apollo face down the greatest challenge of his four thousand years of existence?

Oræcle (Timing Fate Book 1)
He doesn’t move, studying me with an intensity I can’t explain. And that’s when it happens – the moment I’m blindsided by the imminent collision of time and fate.  For one, surreal moment my sense of self bleeds away, and I become all that I’ve seen, and all that will come to be at my choosing.***Synopsis: It’s been two years since Paige Prescott discovered the gift that nearly got her committed.  But now she knows better than to tell anyone about the visions that plague her: futures for which she’s fated, unless she can change them first. But when a tragic event unfolds on the last day of senior year, Paige’s carefully crafted façade shatters, plunging her into a dangerous new reality where her gift is a coveted weapon – and she learns she's not the only one with a secret. Now, torn between a world she thought she knew and one she wished she didn’t, Paige must rely on her gift – and the guidance of a veiled enigma – to outmaneuver a formidable kind.  But if she wants to reclaim her future, she’ll have to make a stunning choice: one bound by love, loyalty, and lies – And the power of timing fate.*** “Look, why don’t we start over?” he says, gesturing for me to return to the seat beside him.  It’s more of a directive than an invitation, but as his eyes lock with mine there’s no trace of his customary superiority.  Instead, there’s only honesty.  And that something that makes my stomach squeeze. “Please,” he adds softly, which is all it takes for my legs to override my brain and walk over there.“Crap.”“Sorry?”Apparently, my brain-to-mouth filter is a casualty of the override. “Nothing,” I mutter, waving him off.  “You asked to start over – so start.”A slow smile spreads across his features.  It’s a startling transformation, but for all the wrong reasons: his game face is lurking.

The Wisdom Oracle: An Aid to Accessing Your Inner or Higher Self Wisdom
The author says: You may perhaps be interested to know that this “Wisdom Oracle” book was inspired by a Chinese spirit guide called Sun Lee.The objective of this oracle is to help you (users) to access your own inner or higher self wisdom. Within, I have used proverbs and totem animals as tools to help you to open your mind to greater self-awareness.This oracle is therefore an aid to self-reflective guidance, rather than a form of divination. It can help to bring your own deeper wisdom to your conscious mind. How you choose to response to this is naturally still a matter of your own freewill choice.There are many and varied ways in which the proverbs and totem animals contained within can resonate within your being, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. When you make a selection the message of the proverb or the image of the totem animal may make immediate sense to you, so that a pathway to follow or a course of action to take becomes clear. If not, I would suggest meditating on one or both.The readings that follow each of the proverbs and totem animals are interpretations that sprang to my mind whilst in quiet contemplation at the time of drafting. Your thoughts will undoubtedly differ because we are all different and each on our own unique pathways of discovery and growth. So whether they differ greatly or just a little it is recommended, indeed important, that you follow your own feelings.I recommend using dice for selection, although this is not essential. You may prefer to simply open the book to a random page and read this. However, I believe you will find it more rewarding to use two different coloured dice, and the book is scripted with this in mind. You can then designate one dice as the first and the other the second digit. (Alternatively, you may simply use one dice and throw it twice).I hope you find inspiration and have plenty of fun.On Amazon you will find that all my paperback and kindle books are priced moderately. I hope this will enable most people to afford them. I endeavour to set prices fairly because my motivation is purely to share an understanding of truth, rather than a desire for financial rewards.I encourage every reader to share my books and the knowledge contained within far and wide. (They make very reasonable gifts with which to enlighten family and friends; and I know from personal experience that this brings a most rewarding feeling to the soul). I believe that it is only through a spiritual awakening that this world will change for the better and become a more enlightened planet on which to live.As it does so (and this has already began) we will see a shift away from a society driven by greed and material desires to one where kindness, consideration, compassion and love will take their rightful place in the hearts and minds of all people.It may seem a dream. Yet dreams can come true.Whilst I am on earth, before I return to my home world dimension, feedback and questions from readers is always welcomed, and where appropriate I will always try to reply.

Thraxas and the Oracle: Thraxas Book Ten
In the tenth book of the series, armies are gathering. It's time for Thraxas and Makri to march back towards Turai. Lisutaris is War Leader, and she trusts Thraxas enough to make him her personal security officer. Captain Thraxas is given the difficult task of outwitting Deeziz the Unseen, the enemy's most powerful sorcerer. He could do with some help from Makri. Unfortunately Makri spends most of her time hiding from the Elf with whom she once had a rather unsatisfactory relationship. Thraxas is relieved to meet a few familiar faces, refugees from Turai, but as he tries to prevent Deeziz from ruining the war effort, he finds himself baffled, outmanoeuvred, and badly in need of beer.

Oracle (The House War Book 6)
Beneath the streets of Averalaan, capital city of the Essalieyan Empire, lie the three Princes of the firstborn, doomed to sleep until the end of days. When gods walked the world, they feared the Sleepers. They fear them even now. If the Sleepers wake, the city will not survive—and the Sleepers are waking. House Terafin has already felt the con­sequences of their stirring. To save the city—and the House over which she rules—Jewel Markess ATerafin must go to face the Oracle. She leaves a House that is still divided, and a city in which demons, in human guise, have begun to move. At no time in Terafin’s history has it faced the dangers it now faces, and it will face them bereft of its leader. Jewel has always seen unpredictable glimpses of the future—images of death and destruction which she cannot control and cannot always understand. To master her birthright, she chooses to walk the path of the Oracle. In her hands, she carries the only hope of the Winter Queen. But the path she must travel was old when the gods ceased to walk the world. Ancient creatures stalk winter skies at the behest of the demons, who mean to ensure that she will never reach the Oracle’s side.Secrets, long hidden from all but the first­born, will finally be brought to light. Choices will be made, and paths chosen, from which there will be no return....
