The History of the Small World Book 1
by Dr. Gerhard Plenert

The Southern Plains became dependent on trade with the North Groves. Each had their own areas of expertise and each had come to rely on the other for their survival. But for some unknown reason this vital trade came to an abrupt halt. The Dwarfs no longer came to the south to trade. Most believed the Dwarfs of the north couldn’t be trusted. Were they trying to starve out the south? Were they trying to increase the price for their goods? Where were they? What game were they playing? You’ll need to read more than the glimpse provided to you on Amazon to learn the answers. This is a beautifully illustrated novel that is “clean” from start-to-finish while also intriguing and genuinely fantasy mystical!

The Southern Plains became dependent on trade with the North Groves. Each had their own areas of expertise and each had come to rely on the other for their survival. But for some unknown reason this vital trade came to an abrupt halt. The Dwarfs no longer came to the south to trade. Most believed the Dwarfs of the north couldn’t be trusted. What was their game? Were they trying to starve out the south? Were they trying to increase the price for their goods? Where were they? What game were they playing? In the first book in the History of Small World series, titled The Siege of the Small World we journeyed with the leprechauns as they organized an expedition to the north in order to find out why trade had stopped. This second book in the series begins with their arrival at the North Groves and continues with their trials and challenges in the hope that the northern and southern trade can be reestablished.

In Arcadia, being different is HERESY.

To survive, citizens must live, dress, and even love according to the United Council’s will. Their power is absolute—until a rebel bomb ignites at a national ceremony and unites the lives of three unlikely people.
When the bombing goes wrong, Nicolette Howell, a young heretic, finds herself alone and on the run, bearing secrets that Arcadia would kill for. When she’s captured, she must escape, but how can she, when her best chance lies with the son of her sworn enemy?
Driven by the execution of an innocent, Jacob Osgood, a United Councilor’s son, hunts for the truth about the heretic movement that Arcadia has hidden. But truth could cost him the one thing he cannot stand to lose: the girl who saved his life at the bombing.
Shiloh Haven, the orphaned daughter of heretics, is forced to become Arcadia’s spy in a sinister plot to destroy the heretic army. She faces a terrible choice: survive or risk everything to save the boy she might just love and the rebels who are her only chance of being free.
As their fates entwine, the three must answer an impossible question.

But when he appears as her label’s new A&R rep, she’s shocked to find he doesn’t know her. Her logical side tells her to stay away from him, but every time she looks into those familiar emerald eyes, awareness sizzles along her nerve endings.

Uncovering her secrets and facing his demons may be his only way to a new life.
