First, we’re giving away 2 printed sets of The Passage of Hellsfire by Marc Johnson:

Catalyst (book 1) and What Once was One (book 2)



For centuries, the kingdom of Alexandria has protected Northern Shala from the monstrous creatures lurking in the Wastelands. Now, a dark force threatens that fragile peace.

Far from home, Alexandria’s princess is abducted. When a young villager named Hellsfire stumbles upon her and her captors, he rushes in to rescue her, alone and unarmed. His fear and fury unleash an uncontrollable magical force that grants him the power to save the princess—and change the world.

Hellsfire has never craved nor dreamed of power. But such magic as he now possesses has not been seen in Northern Shala for a thousand years, since the devastation of the War of the Wizards and the creation of the Wastelands.

Now Hellsfire must leave all he’s ever known, and make a dangerous journey to learn to master this wild, ferocious power—power he knows he is not ready to wield. More difficult still, he needs to master his emotions. If he can’t, the power will consume him, Alexandria will fall, and darkness will eclipse the land, destroying everyone he loves.

In the dead of cold, the spark shall burn…


What Once was One

In the land of Northern Shala, the dark wizard Premier raised an army of foul creatures from the Wastelands and led them against the ancient guardian city of Alexandria. Hellsfire, a young farmhand turned apprentice wizard, defeated Premier and saved Alexandria, but not before the battle claimed his mentor’s life.

Hellsfire, now a full-fledged wizard, must finish what he started by hunting down Premier and seizing the source of the wizard’s dark power and corruption—the Book of Shazul. He must travel deep into the Wastelands, through Premier’s home territory, dodging the scattered remnants of a defeated army lusting for blood and vengeance.

But beating in the heart of the Wastelands is an ancient power more dangerous than Premier or his creatures—and it’s been waiting for Hellsfire for a thousand years. It will force the young wizard to make a devastating choice—one that could change the course of history not only for Alexandria and the Wastelands, but for all of Northern Shala and the lands beyond. And to save his homeland, Hellsfire may have to lose the person he loves the most.

What once was one, will then be two, and never again be whole…

  7. I think Catalyst would be great.

  8. I have to agree with everyone else. I would choose Catalyst. The book sounds like super high fantasy (which I love!) and I feel the magical aspect is going to be a little bit more twisted than what we normal think of as magical (if that makes any sense). Thanks for the giveaway! Fingers crossed 🙂

  15. I love wizards, so Catalyst sounds awesome!

  16. I’d like to win the Hellfire books or the GC. These books sound like a good read.

  17. I would love to have any of the prizes. The Catalyst collection for myself for the wizardry aspect of it. Lionel’s Grand Adventure for my grandchild that has picked up the reading bug. The Amazon gift certificate so I can save up for a sewing machine to make Christmas gifts.
