L'Landra's Tale Series:
A New Day for the Dauntless
A planet destroyed. A race of people looking for a new home. A woman struggling to find her place in the universe is thrown into the responsibility of being the savior of her race. She had run away once, feeling the weight of too much responsibility drowning her, but now she had to return, to finish what she started, before the nightmares overtook her.
As the youngest woman to ever be assigned as a Captain of a battleship, the Dauntless is now in L'Landra's care and finding a new planet to start over is her only goal. Time is running out, her people are hungry, and she must face the odds of losing more souls to starvation and sickness before she can find a stable home. The enemy is always lurking, and not knowing when they will strike, she must continue on, and be ready for anything that comes.
Along the way, she finds comfort from family and friends and understands her purpose for being thrown back into the very thing that caused her to run away so many years before, and a handsome rogue finds his way into her heart. Can she get him to admit his love, or will she forever be wondering whether love will be part of her life?
Ghosts, Past and Future
It is two and a half years since the last battle with the Krall. The Dauntless is put to rest, and the remaining civilians rebuild using the deserted Krall outpost. A new era has arrived, and L'Landra struggles to keep up with it all.
Dalton is in her life. She wishes for a life forever with him, but a new man makes her unsure that he really is the one. Will she choose this new rogue or pick Dalton too late and lose him forever? Will she be able to find all the answers to her uncertain future?
Meanwhile, a ghost ship brings confusion, and Colicos and the Krall are back stronger than ever, with new secrets yet to reveal. When L'Landra's ship goes down during battle and she disappears, the base is sent into a tail spin of uncertainty and chaos. Will they find L'Landra alive? Will they be able to fight off the Krall and their new technology? Or will they surrender themselves over to the enemy for good this time?
Riding The Storm Out
It has been three years since the last devastating battle with the Krall. The base is complete and thriving, and the civilians have begun building new homes around the base. All is quiet and, as far as they know, there is finally peace.
But an arriving stranger throws the base into upheaval. Along with
a derelict ship, an unknown disease, and the threat of a zealot general who could possibly be greater than the Krall ever were, L’Landra must fight her way out of imprisonment and race against
the clock to prepare her base for yet another war. One that could be their last.
Together with the help of friends and family, she fights for her people and freedom from tyranny, in a raucous ride over one obstacle then another. What will they find on the ship? What ills will they suffer at the hands of yet another group who want to dominate them? And will they survive another war without losses too great to come back from? Join L’Landra and her people as they battle the storm that’s coming and fight their way to true freedom.
The Tanith Prophecy Series
Dark One Rising
The Kingdom of Aelethia has been quiet for five hundred years, but the Dark One is rising from out of the depths. All of Aelethia will perish unless the Chosen One comes forward to save them. Unfortunately, the Chosen One doesn’t know her destiny in the world; she only knows she is odd and confused about where her destiny lies.
She wants to find love, but the men in her life that actually love her, she cannot have, and the only one that wants her is as evil as they come. The elves know of her destiny and must tell her and train her in time, in order to fulfill the prophesy that has been laid out before her.
Can she become the person they have waited for? Can she, in time, destroy the evil that is threatening to overtake her kingdom? With friends to guide her and a man to whom she truly loves beside her, she may be able to save Aelethia.
With the completion of Melenthia’s training by the elves,
she is ready to return to the love of her life. With her knowledge and
training, and the revelation that she has Elvin blood, she hopes her
relationship with Dain won’t fail, or the destiny she must face in defeating
the darkness. Fallon has grown strong and is preparing for war.
Kevaan and his knights plan to take back Lachlan Castle from
Fallon's grip, and Alek must reach the Chancellor in the west before war breaks
out. With faith that the Isamarians will
join them in the fight to save the world, Melenthia will prepare herself for
the ultimate battle, one against Fallon and the Dark One.
Join Melenthia and her friends on this perilous battle
between good and evil. Will this be the end for her and Dain? With Tanith’s
power, will she be able to withstand the strength of Fallon and the Dark One?
Or will she fail and watch as all of Aelethia falls into darkness? This is the
exciting finale of the journey of the Chosen One and her powerful sword Tanith.

Look at some of the things being said about
the Tanith Prophecy Series:
"Will she be able to stop Fallon? That’s a question I can’t wait to find
the answer to. Guess I’ll be reading Aelethia’s Hope…like right now!"
Overall, I give this 5 stars!
- Hines and Bigham's Literary Tryst -
"Drama and suspense build quickly in this masterfully crafted fantasy.
Dark One Rising is a breathtaking ride that seldom slows.
Looking forward to the next book!"
- Bill Nelson -
"Fabulously written. I can't wait to read more."
- Jenz -
"I read through the entirety of the "Dark One Rising," an epic fantasy fiction tale in just a few days. Characters are meticulously developed and clearly experience growth and change during the course of the novel. This book is highly recommended to fantasy readers who are romantics at heart."
- Trisa Wilde- Author of Fame -
"I found it compelling. It kept me wanting to read. It is a great story and well-crafted. I enjoyed the read tremendously. It is sure to win a big readership.
- Sean Cormier, Author of Nomadin -
"Wow! Aelethia's Hope, is a great sequel and even better than Dark One Rising.
But Martin's strongest talent may be breathing life into all the characters, so that we feel like we know them - and get caught up in the emotion of the story.
Your only disappointment will be that there isn't a third book coming!"
- Bill Nelson -
"Leandra Martin is an accomplished writer of science fiction, and weaves a captivating tale of mystery, intrigue, romance, and moral values into her series.
I recommend her series to high schoolers, young adults and beyond."
