Ebook Short Description

When Angst turned 40 he knew it was over. Not only is 40 far too old to become a knight, Angst is one of the few able to wield magic, which is mostly illegal. Without warning, Unsel is besieged with dangerous monsters and turns to Angst for help. He is happy to listen once his back stops hurting. On the edge of a mid-life crisis Angst drags his reluctant friends on an adventure to save Unsel.

Extended Description

When Angst turned 40, he knew it was over. Angst had longed to be a knight of Unsel, to make his mark in history, to be remembered for heroic deeds and wondrous acts. He grew up knowing he was destined for something great, but now it is too late. Not only is 40 far too old to become a knight, Angst is one of the few able to wield “the magics”.

For 2,000 years magic has been outlawed, repressed, even outright destroyed throughout the world of Ehrde. By law, Angst is reduced to using his great power only to file papers. His marriage is on the rocks, his friends are bored with him, and he hates his job. The one person that makes him happy is the young Princess Victoria who seems to adore him. Unfortunately, that makes his boss, the Queen, hate him.

Without warning, Unsel is besieged with dangerous monsters - birds with metallic beaks, monkey creatures that can dive through solid ground, mindless horse-eating giants. The world that shunned magic now turns to Angst for help, and he is... (Read more) When Angst turned 40, he knew it was over.

On the edge of a mid-life crisis, Angst drags his reluctant friends along with him on an adventure into the heart of magic. He’s not sure where they’re going, what they’ll find, or even if they’ll survive. But he knows this is his one chance to be a hero because the only way to fight magic is with magic.

Review by: Kristie McMartin on Mar. 09, 2011 : (no rating)
What an amazing adventure! There are so many pieces to this wonderful puzzle that anyone and everyone would enjoy the ride. Well written and brilliant descriptions of details, surroundings, characters and creatures that you are taken INTO the story. I would recommend to anyone, especially fantasy, adventure, magic and action fans. A good read!

'Tis the season for Shamrock Shakes

Shamrock Shake

With the celebration of St. Patrick's Day later this week, it is also that special time of year to celebrate another highlight of March - the Shamrock Shake. How I do love their creamy minty green goodness.

Imagine my dismay, then, when I saw the shocking nutritional information for a 12oz Shamrock Shake!

  • 420 calories
  • 9g fat
  • 72g carbs
  • 0g fiber
  • 9g protein

Plug these stats into a Weight Watchers calculator, and you get a whopping 11 Points+! I never would have guessed it was that high.

So I went looking for some alternatives and, giving soul that I am, have compiled them here for you. Also for you, I did not link out to any wanna-be makeovers that included ingredients like spinach or kelp. I'm all for healthy eating (well, maybe not ALL...), but I do expect my ice cream to have ice cream in it!

Since my husband does P90X workouts, and likes the Beachbody Recovery Drink, I thought I'd link to this Shakeology recipe (though I suspect it wouldn't pass my personal taste test): Shakeology Shamrock Shake

Slainte!
