Amanda Ackers and The Thirteen Shards Of Legend by GlennAndSasha Gabriel

Book Three of the Series.

The adventure continues with cannot-take-a-breath action. As Amanda’s adventure takes them to strange places, they meet even stranger beings and creatures - all deathly afraid of the "new" Wielder.

As the kids battle unbelievable creatures to the death, and find even stranger friends along the way, all in the hope of finding the Shards of Legend to help Amanda to survive the Necklace of Power... one begins to question the journey. Will they stay with Amanda or abandon her as she fights the spirits within the Necklace who want to possess her?

Stand with Amanda and the others as they struggle against devastating injuries - and the potentially fatal injuries to little Sadie.

Will Amanda and her friends survive the last battle when the Necklace refuses to help her?
Take a deep breath as the story continues.

About the Author

Update Notice: August 2, 2014.

Hello everyone, and thank you for visiting our Authors Page.

Book three of our Amanda Ackers Adventure series novels was published today at last :)

Sasha and I apologize for the delay. We have both had some health issues this past year, so, my writing was put on hold for a good while.

Sasha and I would like to thank all of you for supporting us as new authors.

We published Book One of the series, "Amanda Ackers and The Deep Forest Elves" for FREE on January 3rd, 2012. As of today, August 2, 2014, we have reached over 100,000 downloads! To say we are blown away would be a huge understatement! Book two of the series, which was published on March 28, 2012, has 94 percent of the readers downloading book two. I guess a lot of people really do like the story!

I am currently writing book four of the series, titled: “Amanda Ackers and The Lost Family.”

We have received hundreds of emails over that past year from folks wanting book three out NOW! Thank you for that, and it has helped me keep going. We write our stories just for the fun of it, and have full lives other than writing :)

Several people had requested reading Book Three, prior to its publication. I kept that number to 50, and sent out book three two weeks prior to publishing.

Should anyone like a pre-release version of book four when we get to the editing stage, please let us know.

We are very thankful to you all, for supporting our work, which we do for the enjoyment of it.

Our thanks also, to the many of you who have emailed us with kind comments on our stories and the first two books of our novel series, and those who have requested receiving a pre-release versions. We had never thought of doing a pre-release, but thought it was a great idea! It gave many a chance to read book two and now three of Amanda’s adventures, before we actually published it. Thanks to all of you!

We are most humbled by the response we have received, and thank you from the top, middle and bottom of our hearts!

If anyone would like to correspond with us, please shoot us an email when you get the chance, we would love to hear from you.

Hello and thank you for visiting our page.

My name is Sasha Gabriel, and I would like to take a few moments to say a little about Glenn and myself.

They say that creativity belongs to the young. Well, not always. Young at heart, I’ll buy, but nothing else.

Writing is relatively new for me. I’ve been an avid reader for most of my 60+ years. But writing seemed daunting. How do you write an idea to get over to other people without boring them to death? How do you write conversations that sound like the people who are speaking them?

Once I studied the “how to’s” a bit, and with the encouragement from Glenn, my wonderful husband and best friend, I started writing.

And I love it. So does Glenn.

Writing has opened a door for me that nothing else has – my imagination has soared and I’m absolutely thrilled and thankful, from the bottom of my heart, that others like my writing, as well.

Both Glenn and I have been submitting very, very short stories (no more than 600 word stories) because these are also being entered into a writing contest with that directive.

At the same time, both Glenn and I are writing novels (Glenn’s is awesome!!!! Think the depth of Lord of the Rings with the immediacy of Harry Potter and you’ve got it!).

But I want to share something with you all… Glenn has battled Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia almost his entire life. That’s a mouthful, for sure, but try living with them on a daily basis!

Even so, Glenn has worked to overcome the more serious side effects and his talent in writing, painting, and all over creativity is nothing short of staggering.

Honestly… I’m running to keep up with him but I’m mostly just out of breath!

So… the bottom line is… we’re all just human with all our challenges and it’s those challenges that make what we create that much better.

Please… If you like to read… then write. If you like to paint… then paint. Pick up that paintbrush and start. For writing, get to your keyboard and begin.

We think you’ll surprise yourself at your talents.
And, again… Thank You all for your kind and generous words of appreciation for our stories!

It means the world to us!


Glenn here.

Just wanted to add that we never thought anyone would even read our work, let alone have downloaded our little stories thousands of times in such a short time.

Because of the kind words from you all, I will continue to write. I have, as Sasha had mentioned, been writing the Amanda Ackers novel series, with Sasha contributing several chapters to each book.

I had only begun writing the novel for fun, for our grandson Logan. I was not going to publish it, just print it out to give to him. However, with all the encouragement I have received via email, from those reading our little short stories, I have decided to publish the first two books of the Amanda Ackers series for FREE. Everyone keeps telling us we need to charge for them, so, should we decide to do so, they will be no more than $0.99 cents in U.S. Dollars :)

My many thanks to all of you, for your continued support.

Please feel free to contact Sasha and I at the following email address. We would love to hear from you, even to just say hi:

Will there be a fourth book?

Love all the books so far. The 4th book was supposed to be released last year. Still waiting for it and I hope it is as good as the first three.

This book was really good. Ended on a bit of a cliff hanger though... i hope that the next book comes out soon! It's already past the time they said it would come out but i can wait for a bit longer if nessisary. ~Fall_Out_Kill_Joy_

If you made it through the first two books, this one is much better. Plot rolls well thru a bit over done.
