Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – New on the Shelves – Soul Swallowers ( The Shattered Sea Book 1)by D.Wallace Peach

Delighted to feature the new release of D.Wallace Peach.  Soul Swallowers is the first book in The Shattered Sea series. Hot off the press today.

About Soul Swallowers

When swallowed, some souls gift insights, wisdom, a path to understanding. Others unleash power, proficiency with a sword, and indifference to death. One soul assimilates with ease. But swallow a host of the dead and risk a descent into madness.

Estranged from his family over the murder of his wife, young Raze Anvrell wields his fists to vent his rage. Then a chance at a new life beckons, and he retreats to the foothills of the Ravenwood, the haunt of unbound ghosts. He and his mentor build a freehold, a life of physical labor and the satisfaction of realizing a dream. They raise horses and whittle by the fire until the old man dies, and Raze swallows his first soul.

When his brother reaches out, open wounds begin to scar. But the tenuous peace won’t last. While those who rule the Vales yield to the lure of their ambitions, slavers of Ezar roam the countryside, hunting for human chattel. While one man manipulates the law, another heeds the souls of violence howling in his head.

Raze too listens to his soul’s whispers, and as danger intrudes on his quiet life, he has no choice but to return to his father’s world and join the fight.


In this completed series, epic fantasy blends with the wisdom of old souls to create a unique coming of age story of courage and honor in the midst of evil. Slavery is pitted against freedom, anger against forgiveness, and a desire to live peacefully against the necessity to take up the sword.

It’s a story of bitter estrangement and broken hearts, of deception and unfettered ambition. For Raze Anvrell it’s a journey of violence, redemption, and his soul’s growth as he transforms from a reckless youth into a man with a rich legacy of souls.

Magic, politics, love, and madness collide in this fantasy adventure. For lovers of beauty and battle, and complex characters willing to risk everything in the fight for their souls.

One of the recent reviews for Catling’s Bane (The Rose Shield Book 1)

An intriguing story combining science fiction and fantasy that could become a movie on the big screen or a TV series. This is the beginning of an epic series about Caitlin, a young girl who has a rose birthmark over her eye and powers that no others have.

This story takes the reader through the life of Caitlin as a child trying to survive in a cruel world to a young woman who has learned skills that will help to keep her safe from those who want her harmed.

There are a host of unusual and fascinating characters that filled this fantasy to the brim. There are Influencers who control others’ feelings and cause pain and suffering if they do not do the rulers bidding. There are children who have to learn how to protect themselves and work to earn their way.

There are evil and good characters that war against one another. They have one thing in common they are after Caitlin. Those who fear her powers want her dead. Others want to rescue her and whisk her away. But will her friend, Whitt be able to rescue her or does he want to? Will Caitlin be able to escape the clutches of the rulers who only want her for her powers?

The series continues in book 2 and beyond. I found this series to be a compelling and fascinating read once I got into the story. It is full of descriptive passages about the landscape and life of the characters in this harsh environment. It is reminiscent of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

      • Thank you, Diana. Same to you, as well. Wish I could say I was spending mine reading, but alas. Still too much work to catch up on around here. I’ve been running outside between thunderstorms to pull weeds, and cut back overgrowth in our back garden. But it feels good to make even slow progress. 🙂 I’m looking forward to reading this book and finding out who Raze is. 😀 ❤ Keep smiling! It's good for your soul and it makes people wonder what you're up to. 😀

      • Overgrowth – don’t mention that word! I think the Oregon rain forest is a little like Florida. Things grow faster than you can cut them back. 🙂 Thanks again and make sure to relax between bouts of yardwork. ❤
