Phaethon by Rachel Sharp
"I'M F***ING YELLING, GOOD S**T."– Roanna Sylver, Author of Chameleon Moon
Darkmage by M.L. Spencer
"One of the most compelling books I've read."– Zilly (Amazon.com)
9 Tales of Raffalon by Matthew Hughes
"Matthew Hughes does Jack Vance better than anyone except Jack himself."– George R.R. Martin
Ragnarok Unwound by Kristin Jacques
"This story had a different take on Norse mythology, with a fascinating, unique blend of Hawaiian. The characters were all well developed and relatable (yes, even the gods and goddesses!). I loved how Ives grew throughout the story."– Cate M. Turner, Author of The Stolen Papyrus
Lady Changeling by Ken Altabef
"A deftly crafted fantasy by a master of the genre, "Lady Changeling" showcases Altabef's genuine flair for originality and mature storytelling."– Midwest Book Review
Quincy Harker - Year One by John G. Hartness
"Quincy Harker—this is who i want protecting the world! I love these books."– Academy Award Winner Whoopi Goldberg
Sekhmet's Desire by Nova Blake
"This is my first book by this author and won't be my last! This was an amazing read, treasure seeking, smart MC, magic...what else do I need...? Great job!"– Reader review
Tales of the Thief-City by Gareth Lewis
"The premise of a sentient city pinching parts of other dimensions to glue into itself had me feeling fantasy with a splash of Doctor Who and a sprinkle of Carnival Row... The dialogue is snappy and entertaining too, flowing with a natural rhythm that was a joy to read."– Alicia Wanstall-Burke, author of The Coraidic Saga
Cutie and the Beast by E.J. Russell
"Cutie and the Beast by E.J. Russell is one of the best paranormal novels I have read in quite a while. With clever characters, witty dialogue and a fast moving plot, the story takes on the classic Beauty and the Beast fable and turns it on its ear."– The Novel Approach
The Last God of Earth by AJ Vanderpoel
"I loved this book so much. In the world of LGBTQ+ fiction, there aren't a lot of choices that are outside of gen romance or slice of life genres. This book fills a void into queer fantasy, and it hits all the right notes. The characters are engaging, the writing is fantastic, and the story is top-notch. I highly recommend it."– Reader review
Once Stolen by D.N. Bryn
"Once Stolen is a charming new stand-alone story, in the These Treacherous Tides series with lots of action, a great setting, characters to steal your heart, all with a heartwarming underlying story message of learning to love yourself."– Jen at Queen’s Book Asylum
By the Pact by Joanna Maciejewska
"I thoroughly enjoyed the story. I thought the concept was unique. Different from other fantasy books I've read."– Fezzik (Amazon review)
Playing with Fire by R.J. Blain
"Playing with Fire is an eccentric, charming, and humorous oddity, a rare gem, and definitely unique. RJ Blain brings a refreshing whimsy to well-known mythology."– Liz Konkel for Readers' Favorite
Last Sword in the West by Ryan Kirk
"So great. It's been called a Samurai Western and even more fun than that. I'm not the typical audience for the fantasy genre (I'm typically thrillers and such) but this book had me from page one and didn't let up. Recommend it highly to everyone who enjoy and good read where the pages flip on by."– Amazon review

With pay-what-you-want, we believe there's a price for everyone. Or better yet, buy one for them as a gift. Help support indie authors!
Support nonprofits. Best of all, you can also give a portion of the proceeds from each bundle to charity. To learn more about these charities and those they help, click the "Learn More" link next the charities when you purchase.
