The Faerin and the Gold (a medieval fantasy short story)

Another atmospheric piece of medieval fantasy from one of Ukraine's most popular sci fi and fantasy writers Victor Nochkin.

The Faerin and the Gold is a fine work of fantasy fiction that combines magic with heart-rending realism. This is how our past should have been, had we succeeded in living side by side with mythical fairy-tale creatures: fairies, faerins, goblins and the like. Told with a touch of humor and a large dose of wisdom and understanding, the Faerin and the Gold is a medieval tale of love and courage that is sure to touch many hearts.

The third book of D. Rus' Play to Live series is out!

The Duty (Play to Live: Book # 3), the third book of D. Rus' bestselling Play To Live MMORPG series premiered today on Amazon to more rave reviews (now why doesn't that surprise me?). This is arguably the best book out of the three already translated, filled with drama and excitement as Max (or should I say Laith the Death Knight) and his friends take on the deadly Chinese mafia who attempt to turn AlterWorld into their stomping ground. The heroes' quest to liberate virtual slaves and defeat evil turns The Duty into a true rollercoaster of action and unexpected twists - new larger-than-life characters join the cast we already know on their way to glory and virtual riches!

A great read, can't recommend it enough.
