In the Papers Again

Check out today's (January 6) issue of the News Mirror, page 12.

The text reads as follows:

"Melinda O'Donnell publishes her second book. Resident Melinda O'Donnell has published her second book "The Eightfold Lairs of Xillenthia."

O'Donnell previously published a fantasy novel, "Tale of the Moone," in 2013 and is currently working on a prequel to "Tale of the Moone" in addition to several other books and short stories.

"The Eightfold Lairs of Xillenthia" is a story of survival set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world. The land has gone. The oceans have disappeared. Fearsome beasts roam the wilds.Only pieces of the earth remain, desolate wastelands where scattered pockets of humanity survive.

But a handful of people are different. They are rare. But they are strong, resourceful, intuitive- and driven by violence and personal loss.

Sirrea has been locked away in a tower since her birth, alone, for crimes she did not commit. Kinek is a leader of men, helping his people stave off hunger and desperation at least for one more day.

Azola is a mighty warrior, and a legend in her own right. Old are the tales of the wanderer in the desert, and they are ancient and terrible. They alone can unlock the mystery of the ruin of the world, and perhaps change the course of the future.

Available as a paperback and an e-book on O'Donnell also welcomes visitors on Facebook and on her website,"
