Title: The Thunderstone by Pj Belanger
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Empowered by jewels with various magical qualities – wizards, gemnuns, gemmonks and sapphires – along with the Lords they serve, combine to make up the HOUSES OF STOREM, inhabited by dwarfs, icelanders, elves, catpeople and hillpeople who must unite against the evil ONYX KINGDOM.
It is an adventure that finds an odd group of travelers trying to save the life of a wounded girl who is being pursued by trolls, ogres, pirates, hurks and histians – up rivers, through magical forests and mystical wizard towers, all because she may be the key to preventing the evil one from taking over the DIAMOND KINGDOM.
Don’t miss this, the first in a series that brings Birl, Eauxsage, Hadden, Chellie, Nugs and Tem together for the first time.

About the Author
Pj Belanger has spent a good part of her life in the scenic hills of Connecticut. She was always an avid reader. “My father collected every bit of Science Fiction he could find- we would talk for hours on the subject. The Golden Age of Science Fiction is truly a love of mine. Great writers from Heinlein to Jose Farmer to Asimov to Bloch were my idols. They were great story tellers something that influences my own work. Of course, then came Tolkien and I was hooked on fantasy too.”
After graduating from St. Francis College (UNE) in Maine, she worked in the fast pace newspaper advertising world but always had been a writer of short stories, novel length books of fiction, romance and general interest. Her work is a mixture of a three volume book series, The Houses of Storem filled with wizards, dwarfs, merrs, elfs, heroic Kings and albino Icelanders. Her Space Detective series is just plain good sci fi fun as is her short story book.
Pj was deeply involved in writing local NASCAR Driver Profiles and has a book on The History of Stafford Speedway. “I love racing in general, but I really love the short tracks. It was a labor of love to write the racing books and I enjoyed writing a regular racing column for a local sports newspaper.”
Pj lives in Florida with husband. She enjoys time with her two grandchildren. Her life is enhanced by a trouble making miniature beagle and a mischievous cat.

The wizard, now also standing, was listening intently as the wind gathered his cloak, flinging it in the air almost playfully. “Be gone, we wish you no harm, we are only weary travelers” he shouted.
Sparks flew as the wind’s gust began to smother the small campfire. Tem with his night vision could see bright yellow eyes devouring them just beyond the fire’s rim, wolves! By the gods help us if this fire goes out, he thought. Nugs standing over the girl, raised his mace and howled.
“What kind of sorcery be this?” Tem yelled to the wizard. The wizard was beyond hearing, raising his staff over his head as if it were a weapon, he lowered it slowly to the fire. The fire flamed, reaching up into the night. The wind died down immediately, the air once again became stagnant and silent. The eyes retreated into the darkness from whence they had come.
Tem fingering his scorched vest, watched as the wizard tumbled to the ground. Running over, fearing the worst, he felt Eauxsage’s hand, cold. “Great Mother of Hysteria, now we’re really in for it, the fool done got himself killed.”
