Hello all! There’s approximately 6 shopping days left this Christmas and if you haven’t gotten all your gifts yet, you may be feeling the pressure. Not to fear! Tinika Claus is here with some awesome books you can get for the book lover in your life.
Manifestation: Arcana Revived Volume One by Jason Cantrell: This is the first book in Jason’s Arcana Revived series.
Here’s a little taste of what it’s about (taken from Jason’s blog and Amazon book description): Gabby Palladino believes in magic. Her parents always tell her that magic is nothing more than foolish superstition. But she grew up reading ancient fairy tales known as the Fables of Arcana, which filled her mind with wonder and mystery. When those myths and legends start to come true, Gabby learns that real magic is far more dangerous than the bedtime stories she always believed in. When people begin manifesting the powers of arcana, Gabby finds herself surrounded by dangers on all sides. She encounters people who can melt steel with their minds, create earthquakes, and summon flames from their bare hands. She must struggle to survive in a city gripped by chaos and destruction, while trying to discover why people are manifesting abilities that have been lost since ancient times. What she learns will make her question everything she believes in, about the world, her family, and even her own self.
Manifestation is available on Amazon and CreateSpace in paperback. Ebook versions are available through Amazon and B&N Nook!

Darkness Concealed by D. Emery Bunn: This book is the first in the Darkness trilogy.
Here’s what you need to know. 50 years ago, the dawn did not come. Again. Everyone in Telthan knew it would happen. Monsters roamed the land, killing virtually everyone in their path, laying waste to anything in their way. Only a precious few survived to rebuild the wreckage of civilization, just like last time. No one questions the Darkening. Not even the children.
That is, until four strangers set off in search of answers, braving a forbidden city, a forgotten library, and foreboding mountains for the truth that has to exist. But the past does not give up its secrets easily, and the truth is far darker than the blackest night.
You can get it on Amazon, Kobo or read it for free.

The same day in Iraq, Tripp Price celebrates his birthday with his best friend, Jimmy Baker. The celebration is cut short when their unit is assigned to a mission. While fulfilling their mission, the unit gets ambushed. As a result, Tripp suffers a traumatic brain injury. Jimmy isn’t so lucky. He is in a coma and had to have his legs amputated.
