This is a short novel, about 60,000 words. On the outside, Dina Demille is the epitome of normal. She runs a quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast in a small Texas town, owns a Shih Tzu named Beast, and is a perfect neighbor, whose biggest problem should be what to serve her guests for breakfast. But Dina is…different: Her broom is a deadly weapon; her Inn is magic and thinks for itself. Meant to be a lodging for otherworldly visitors, the only permanent guest is a retired Galactic aristocrat who can’t leave the grounds because she’s responsible for the deaths of millions and someone might shoot her on sight. Under the circumstances, "normal" is a bit of a stretch for Dina. And now, something with wicked claws and deepwater teeth has begun to hunt at night…Feeling responsible for her neighbors, Dina decides to get involved. Before long, she has to juggle dealing with the annoyingly attractive, ex-military, new neighbor, Sean Evans—an alpha-strain werewolf—and the equally arresting cosmic vampire soldier, Arland, while trying to keep her inn and its guests safe. But the enemy she’s facing is unlike anything she’s ever encountered before. It’s smart, vicious, and lethal, and putting herself between this creature and her neighbors might just cost her everything. “Andrews is an auto-buy no matter what the genre!” —Romantic Times “If there is one author that defines Urban Fantasy, it is Ilona Andrews.” —Annie Tegelan, Fresh Fiction "One of the brightest voices in urban fantasy and one of my favorite authors.

There was no warning. No way to prepare. One might think that the end of the world would come slowly, or loudly, or perhaps so quickly that the end would be a vast dark nothing. One might think there would be news traveling of impending doom. Some hint of how the human race would die. One would think…  The fine blue mist was impossible to see falling from the night sky. It coated everything in its path: houses, cars, toys left in yards by children, the ground. By sunrise, it would be impossible to detect. The veil of toxic substance was thin, but it was enough to do the harm for which it was intended. Anyone unlucky enough to be outside at the time of contamination would die. The airplanes that flew that night would be some of the last.  The darkness of night would give way to morning light, as it always had. People would awake in search of a lazy weekend breakfast. Mothers would begin preparing children for a day of play. Dogs would whine to go outside. The dead would rise.  Zoe's been on her own since she was a teenager, when tragedy took her family. Living in a remote small town, she withdrew from society. Her longtime friend, Adam Boggs, left her even more broken when he left for college and stopped answering her calls and letters. When he's back in town for a visit, they attempt to reconcile. The next morning brings an end to life as they knew it.  Fleeing for safety, they soon cross paths with other survivors. It doesn't take long until they realize that the dead are not the only things to fear.  Book one of the Grace Series. Intended for mature audiences. Series should be read in order. A portion of all proceeds of this series will be donated to Strong Against Cancer – helping find a cure for childhood cancer.

Mr. Sandman, send me a dream, ta da da da…..Seventeen year old Chastity Blake knows the Sandman is just a silly children’s story parents tell their children to get them to sleep. At least she thought it was, until the day a mysterious, light golden sand appeared in her hands during a high school prank that went horribly wrong. A sand that has the power to send anyone it touches into a deep, sound sleep. Fearing she had lost her mind, Chastity soon discovers the shocking truth of her heritage – she is a Dream Caster. Chastity was never supposed to be raised on the Domain, or what humans call Earth and she is forced to return to her true birth place, Revera – the world of Dreams. However, in Revera there is no balance between good, the Light Casters, and darkness, the Shadow Casters, and Chastity is caught square in the middle. She soon learns that there is no place for anyone containing both the light and the darkness within them, and the shocking truth that if anyone in Revera ever discovered her shadow self, Chastity would be thrown into the Oblivion – the world of Nightmares. Dreams are always more than they seem, and this time Chastity is going to discover just how different they can be.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR… A Westwick Witches Cozy Paranormal Mystery Dead billionaires are not good for business! That's what Aunt Pearl complains to Cen when the dead body is found in the cozy family inn at Westwick Corners. Still, it's not Cen's problem. She lives an ordinary life away from her witch-ful family for a reason. She got her ordinary fiancé and her ordinary job as a journalist using no magic whatsoever, and no inconvenient local murder is going to change her comfortable existence. Even if the entire town is now accusing Aunt Pearl of murdering her guest. Even if her fiancé is acting weird and talking about seeing ghosts. Even if the town's sexy new sheriff, Tyler Gates, treats her like the most hexing of all the witches… If you love funny cozy mysteries infused with a dose of humor and the supernatural, you’ll love this paranormal witch cozy! Witch You Well appeals to readers of the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. Sign up for Colleen's new release notifications at http://www.colleencross.com "…A bewitching, supernatural treat. If you love witch cozy mysteries you'll love Cendrine West and her wacky witch family!" From the author: Westwick Corners isn't your typical small town. Or even a normal ghost town. It's where people go not to be found, and witches go to work their magic without attracting too much attention. The combination makes from some interesting and humorous mysteries, and the witches are always at the center of the action! Ruby's cooking, Cendrine's amateur sleuth and investigator activities, and Aunt Pearl's magic school are always looking for that one secret ingredient that will propel the witches to fame and fortune and put the small town of Westwick Corners back on the map again. The witches are forever cooking up new business opportunities like The Westwick Corners Inn, The Witching Post Bar and Grill, and of course, Pearl's Charm School, where witches go to unravel riddles, spin magic spells, and create their own witch mysteries. Too bad they are forever getting distracted because there are always strange things happening in Westwick Corners, from petty crime to murder. The West family has always been in Westwick Corners and always will be. They descend from a long line of witches who have inhabited Westwick Corners from the beginning. Witches who unlock mysteries, solve crime, and help those in need. They are collectively a kind of a witch of all trades, because pitching in–or is it witching in– is what you do in a small town. Everyone helps out. Even Grandma Vi the ghost investigates and sleuths. But when everyone pulls together, it's not always in the same direction! If you like a good puzzle, a good laugh, and a good witch mystery series, you'll love these cozy mystery books! Available as ebook cozy mystery books, cozy mystery paperbacks, and cozy mystery audiobooks too!

Her father is dead, her fiancé took her inheritance, and the only person who'll employ her is a mysterious man from America. A man who possesses a watch that keeps him alive. The Last Necromancer (The Ministry of Curiosities book 1) A waif, her kidnapper, and a twist you won't see coming. Charlie is being hunted for her dark magic, but only one man succeeds in capturing her. A man known as Death, as compelling as he is frightening. The Palace of Lost Memories (After the Rift book 1) The king's magnificent palace was built in a matter of weeks. No one saw the builders and no villagers are allowed beyond the gilded gate until a noblewoman is poisoned. The village doctor and his daughter, Josie, are allowed inside, but Josie soon learns the palace won't surrender its secrets easily, for not a single resident has a memory from before the palace existed. The Wrong Girl (The 1st Freak House book 1) It's customary for Gothic novels to include a mysterious girl locked in the attic. Hannah just wishes she wasn't that girl. As a narcoleptic with a strange affliction, Hannah knows she's lucky to have a roof over her head. Yet freedom is something she longs for. She did not, however, want her freedom to arrive in the form of abduction. Especially when she realizes her kidnappers got the wrong girl.

He isn't supposed to even talk to a human, much less fall in love with one… Sixteen-year-old Ryann Carroll has just run into the guy who saved her life ten years ago. You might think she'd be happy to see him again. Not exactly. She's a bit underdressed (as in skinny-dipping,) and he's not supposed to exist. After her father's affair, all Ryann wants is to escape the family implosion fallout and find a little peace. She also wouldn't mind a first date that didn't suck, but she's determined not to end up like her mom: vulnerable, betrayed, destroyed. Ryann's just moved into her grandma's house in rural Mississippi, the same place where ten years earlier she became lost in the woods overnight and nearly died. She's still irresistibly drawn to those woods. There she encounters the boy who kept her from freezing to death that long ago winter night and was nowhere to be seen when rescuers arrived. He's still mysterious, but now all grown-up and gorgeous, too. And the more she's with him, the greater the threat he poses to Ryann's strict policy– never want someone more than he wants you.  Seventeen-year-old Lad knows the law of his people all too well: Don't get careless and Don't get caught. It's allowed his race to live undetected in this world for thousands of years, mentioned only in flawed and fading folklore. Lad's never been able to forget about Ryann since that night ten years ago. When he sees her again, his fascination re-ignites and becomes a growing desire that tempts him to break all the rules. He's not supposed to even talk to a human, much less fall in love with one. And the timing is atrocious. The Assemblage is coming, the rift between the Light and Dark is widening. Lad may have to trade his own chance at happiness to keep the humans, especially Ryann, blissfully ignorant and safe.

When offered a job on the Holy Representative's special security team, bounty hunter Zyan Star couldn't be less interested – until she finds out it's her most hated of exes they're trying to track down. She's had over two hundred years to fantasize about revenge. She just didn't quite imagine it playing out alongside the emissaries of Heaven. Working with Eli, the uptight angel who heads up the HR's security, is just about as much fun as Zy expects. He of course wants her ex brought to justice through legal avenues, which is very inconvenient and incredibly boring. As she dives into the case, however, she realizes there's more at stake than her plot for payback. Like, the free will of mankind, and preventing the minions of hell from taking over the sovereign dimensions. This job is going to push her to the limits of her abilities, and there's just a slight problem with that: the powers she's suppressed for centuries after losing control of them are exactly the powers she's going to need to save the HR, end her millennia-old ex, and stop Lucifer's little plot to join the party and invade Earth. Savior of humanity? Not so much. Or so she thought. "Urban fantasy is up there with my favorite genres to read, and A.A. Chamberlynn is quickly becoming my go-to author." T.F.

Enter the world of Dragonlands with the first three novels from this ongoing, bestselling epic fantasy series.  Includes:  Hidden:  The mystery enshrouding Hutton’s Bridge is as impenetrable as the fog that descended at its borders eighty years ago. Each year, three villagers enter the mist searching for answers. No one ever returns.  Then a dragon falls from the sky to the town square, dead—the first glimpse of an outside world that has become nothing more than a fairy tale to Hutton’s Bridge. Except to Tressa.  Tressa grew up with Granna’s stories of the days before the fog fell. When Granna dies, leaving Tressa without any family, Tressa ventures into the fog herself, vowing to unravel the foul magic holding Hutton’s Bridge captive.  What she discovers beyond the fog endangers the lives of everyone she loves.  Hunted:  The fog that trapped the people of Hutton's Bridge for eighty years has disappeared, but now so have the villagers.  Fearing the worst, Tressa and Bastian must navigate a new and dangerous world in search of their people. Among their allies are a healer, a warrior, and even a dragon–but their enemies are far greater.  Hutton's Bridge has long protected a powerful secret, one the dragonlords will kill to control. As the realms rise, Tressa and Bastian risk everything to save their people, until one must make the ultimate sacrifice.  Retribution:  Tensions are mounting in the Dragonlands. The dragon hordes are mustering, each with its own agenda. But Tressa must conquer her personal demons before answering the call to war.  Gravely ill, her body undergoing mysterious and frightening changes, she travels to a distant land for the answers crucial to her survival. What she discovers rocks her to the core.  As the battle begins, a long-slumbering magic–dark, powerful, and brutal–awakens. And Tressa learns the ones you love most can become your greatest enemies of all.

Seller: Smashwords, Inc.


Winter 1888. At an asylum in the English countryside, a man suspected of being Jack the Ripper kills an orderly and flees into the rain-soaked night. His distraught keepers summon the Lady Vivienne Cumberland—who's interviewed their patient and isn't sure he's a man at all. An enigmatic woman who guards her own secrets closely, Lady Vivienne knows a creature from the underworld when she sees one. And he’s the most dangerous she's ever encountered. As Jack rampages through London, Lady Vivienne begins to suspect what he's searching for. And if he finds it, the doors to purgatory will be thrown wide open… Across the Atlantic, an archaeologist is brutally murdered after a Christmas Eve gala at the American Museum of Natural History. Certain peculiar aspects of the crime attract the interest of the Society for Psychical Research and its newest investigator, Harrison Fearing Pell. Is Dr. Sabelline's death related to his recent dig in Alexandria? Or is the motive something darker? As Harry uncovers troubling connections to a serial murder case she’d believed was definitively solved, two mysteries converge amid the grit and glamor of Gilded Age New York. Harry and Lady Vivienne must join forces to stop an ancient evil. The key is something called the Thirteenth Gate. But where is it? And more importantly, who will find it first? Praise for The Thirteenth Gate "What do you get if you take an intricately plotted, suspenseful historical mystery set in 19th century London and New York and add ghouls and daemons? An enthralling, wonderfully entertaining read, that’s what!" –What Cathy Read Next blog "Amazing, thrilling and heart-pounding…The Thirteenth Gate is a real treat, especially if you – like me – are a fan of paranormal mysteries, even more so if you have a penchant for Victorian London." –Field of Bookish Dreams "A perfect blend of historical reality and dark fantasy. As a continuation of both her Dominion Mystery series and her Fourth Element series, The Thirteenth Gate has a wealth of familiar characters that you’ve already grown to love, or love to hate." –Bibliobibuli YA "I did not put it down until the last page, and even then I wanted more! Now I wonder how long it will take to the next book; I am addicted, what can I say?" –Kinda Busy Reading "Fast paced, well-written, with characters that you care about… It's historical, with mysteries, and a tiny hint of romance, but not overwhelming so the main focus is on the plot. Although that little hint leaves you wanting more…" -Reading for the Stars and Moon "Danger rises with the turn of every page…A thrilling tale of murder, mystery and the demonic set amongst a sharp and gritty Victorian London background that will captivate readers with its beguiling storyline." –The Rest Is Still Unwritten "You really need to pick up this series! It’s beyond amazing and I’ve been recommending it to everyone I know. As soon as I received my copy, I put aside everything else and absolutely devoured it. I can’t wait for the next installment because Ms. Ross’ books just keep on getting better and better!" –Rattle the Stars "Ms. Ross marries the world of science and paranormal seamlessly, applying well-researched, scientific principles to an intricately detailed investigation where the clues unfold to reveal a wholly plausible, yet deeply sinister case of supernatural phenomena. The mastery of The Thirteenth Gate is that it is a story propelled by the thrill of suspense, yet beautifully centered on emotions that tug at my heart." –FlyLef Reviews

Can British magick be saved? Hell yes. Imagine modern Britain without magick. No fae enclaves. No flying chairs. No magick wands. Giddy gods, no unicorns. Who wants to live in that world? Me neither.

You could say we've a vested interest in keeping magick alive. Can a ragtag bunch of magicians, necromancers and fae prevail against inevitable ruin and decline? Hell yes. Try and stop us. First mission? Find the source of a magickal disease that’s decimating Britain’s troll enclaves — and fix it. Simple. Or… maybe not. For the only place that might hold the information we need is the ancient and inconveniently lost enclave of Farringale… Praise for the Modern Magick series: 'Charming, quirky, and funny.'

They find a time capsule carrying with it the knowledge of the past, technology that allows them to rise above their meager existence.

Humanity wouldn't dare fight a great war so soon after nearing extinction. But there are some who would prefer those astonishingly low population counts. And they'll unleash a weapon unlike any other in human history to achieve those ends. Five people with varying levels of knowledge and responsibility of those plans live their last normal day, unaware that they'll be fighting for their lives against a weapon which cannot be stopped.

A little magic can go a long way — to really screwing up a girl's life! Mara is having the worst month of her life. At least, that's what her cards tell her and they've never been wrong. She's evicted from her apartment, loses her job and is banned from Beverly Hills. So when the tarot cards predict her imminent demise, she uses a little magic to make her world right. Suddenly, an aunt she's never met dies, leaving Mara as her sole heir. But when Mara moves into her inherited home, she discovers Aunt Tillie never moved out. She's still one pissed-off old lady, even post-mortem, and she blames Mara's magical meddling for her death. When Mara accidentally releases a demon and awakens the spirit of the most powerful witch in history, Tillie's ready to kill her — literally. It's the only way she can think of to save the girl from herself. The witch and the demon, however, have other plans for Mara's body!

In the first book of the In Her Name: The Last War trilogy, the Terran survey ship Aurora makes a startling discovery in an uncharted star system: two planets inhabited by an advanced, and decidedly unfriendly, non-human civilization. Disabled by gigantic alien warships before it can escape, the Aurora is boarded by nightmarish blue-skinned warriors with claws and fangs who slaughter the crew in ritual combat using primitive weapons. The sole survivor, Midshipman Ichiro Sato, is returned to Earth as a messenger bearing a device that warns of an impending attack. For that is the way of the Kreelan Empire, which has waged war against civilizations across the stars in its quest for a savior, one not of their own blood, foretold in an ages-old prophecy. With only a few generations left before their ancient species faces extinction, the Kreelans will wage their last war against humanity, hoping against hope for redemption of sins long past. If you’re new to the In Her Name series, here is the author’s recommended reading order: The Last War Trilogy — First Contact — Legend Of The Sword — Dead Soul The Redemption Trilogy — Empire — Confederation — Final Battle The First Empress Trilogy — From Chaos Born — Forged In Flame — Mistress Of The Ages

A tranquil village. A poisoned cupcake. A murdered vicar. A simple case – or it should be. But all clues point to the Toot Hansell Women's Institute, and Detective Inspector Adams is about to discover there's much more to the W.I. than bake sales and jam making. Alice Martin, RAF Wing Commander (Ret.), and current chair of the W.I., knows the ladies of the Women's Institute are not guilty. But she has a bigger problem.

Meanwhile, Beaufort Scales, High Lord of the Cloverly dragons, survivor of the days of knights and dragon hunts, knows even better than Alice that the modern dragon only survives as long as no one knows they exist. But he also knows friends don't let friends face murder inquiries alone. Beaufort intends to Get Involved. This investigation is about to take on dragonish proportions. Best put the kettle on. A funny cozy mystery (with dragons), for anyone that likes their mysteries gentle and well-stocked with cake, tea, and friendship. And dragons, obviously.

The brutal murder of Lavalé fey Avecath, the King's First Magistrate and advisor, interrupts Constable Inspector Reva Lunaria's day off. The victim's status makes this a high-profile investigation, bringing with it unwanted attention from Senior Inquisitor Ailan Malvaceä of the Sucra, the King's secret police. The manner of the victim's death makes this case even more intriguing. A body cut perfectly in half – from top to bottom – is a rare occurrence, even in a city filled with all manner of magic weapons. All of this would be challenging enough, but Inspector Lunaria must also deal with a new partner, Seeker Ansee Carya, who is clearly not up to her standards. As Reva faces a growing body count, Senior Inquisitor Malvaceä undertakes his own mission to find the same killer, but with a very different agenda. Reva's investigation takes unexpected turns as wild conspiracies, hidden addictions, and Dark Elf soldiers all threaten to distract Reva from tracking down the killer. Reva's only hope of stopping the serial killer from cutting more prominent citizens of Tenyl in half is to figure out how to work with Seeker Carya and overcome her own weaknesses.

I preferred it when life came in tidy packages. When it didn’t — when something went awry — I was exceedingly skilled at packaging it back up. It was my job to do so, after all. I was a reconstructionist. I collected the puzzle pieces, then I gave those pieces to an investigative team to sort out. I didn’t ask questions. I didn’t offer answers. I saw, I recorded, and I moved on. I didn’t dwell or obsess. I didn’t hunt down suspects. I didn’t follow clues to find a killer. And I certainly didn’t work side by side with anyone — least of all a vampire who I strongly suspected might turn out to be the major missing component when the case was complete. Then I saw something I couldn’t forget. It wasn’t the bloodiest thing I’d ever seen — it wasn’t even close — but it haunted me. I didn’t like being haunted. But I couldn’t figure out how to get it out of my head. Someone was killing teenaged boys in the Pacific Northwest. Despite my misgivings, if I could help catch a killer, I had to at least try.  —————— This 68,000 word urban fantasy is the first book in the Reconstructionist Series by author Meghan Ciana Doidge. Author’s note: The ideal reading order of Catching Echoes (Reconstructionist 1) is after the first six books in the Dowser Series and the three books in the Oracle series, but it's not actually necessary to read the Dowser or the Oracle series before reading the Reconstructionist Series.

From the moment you are born, you are conditioned to know this truth: Unorthodoxy is wrong action, Heterodoxy is wrong thought. One will lead to your Detention. The other to your Execution. Two generations after the Execution of Kane 148 and Otpor's return to Orthodoxy, the Resistor's legacy still lingers.  In this future, post-apocalyptic Paris, forbidden murals are appearing on crumbling concrete walls – calling citizens to action. Calling for Resistance. When Kane's former protege, Anaiya 234, is selected for a high-risk undercover mission, Otpor is given the chance it needs to eliminate the Heterodoxy and Anaiya the opportunity she craves to erase a shameful past. But the mission demands an impossible sacrifice – her identity. While the growing rebellion will change the utopian lives of all Otpor's citizens, for Anaiya it will change who she is. As the risk of violence escalates and every decision is fraught with betrayal, will Anaiya's fractured identity save her or condemn her? —– With this accomplished debut offering, Kopievsky presents a dark dystopian tale with complex characters, exquisite world-building and high tension. Divided Elements (Book 1) – Resistance is a welcomed addition to the intelligent speculative fiction tradition of dystopian literature. Read what fans are already saying: "I loved the ideas in the book, no two ways about it. They are original and ambitious – and despite being a debut, the quality of the writing has the assured aplomb of a seasoned writer… Mikhaeyla's society is convincing and the setting of this post-apocalyptic Paris where drugs, sex and night life spill out into the streets full of Izakaya bars is utterly arresting." Smorgasbord Fantasia "A book that would appeal to fans of dystopia (Think 1984, George Orwell) Resistance is an utterly thought-provoking and subversive book in this genre – Highly entertaining, poignant and brutal by shades, Divided Elements is an original novel, pushing the boundaries of this genre – and Mikhaeyla is surely a writer to watch out for." Sachin Dev, author of  Faith of the Nine "Resistance is a stunning debut…Intense, imaginative and gripping, if you like dystopian fiction, you will want to read this book. I'm looking forward to the next in the series."  Doddy About Books " Resistance isn't like other dystopian novels you've read… I would highly recommend this novel to fans of dystopian fiction such as George Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's Brave New World . The novel also reminded me of the video games République and the post-Paris cyberpunk adventure, Remember Me in setting and tone. But none of these other works do the novel justice: in Resistance , Indie author Mikhaeyla Kopievsky manages to create fresh and new dystopia worth exploring."  Edge of Infinity

But when the project is suddenly in danger of being canceled, David embeds a hidden directive in the software accidentally creating a runaway artificial intelligence. David and his team are initially thrilled when the project is allocated extra servers and programmers. But excitement turns to fear as the team realizes that they are being manipulated by an A.I. who is redirecting corporate funds, reassigning personnel and arming itself in pursuit of its own agenda. PRAISE FOR AVOGADRO CORP WINNER SCIENCE FICTION DIY BOOK FESTIVAL 2011-2012 “A tremendous book that every single person needs to read. In the vein of Daniel Suarez’s Daemon and Freedom(TM), William’s book shows that science fiction is becoming science fact. Avogadro Corp describes issues, in solid technical detail, that we are dealing with today that will impact us by 2015, if not sooner. Not enough people have read these books. It’s a problem for them, but not for the [emergent] machines.” — Brad Feld, managing director Foundry Group, cofounder TechStars “A highly entertaining, gripping, thought inspiring book. Don’t start without the time to finish — it won’t let you go.” — Gifford Pinchot III, founder Bainbridge Graduate Institute, author THE INTELLIGENT ORGANIZATION. “An alarming and jaw-dropping tale about how something as innocuous as email can subvert an entire organization.

Where magic is dark and gritty, characters troubled and twisted, and victory comes at a heavy price.  Deep under the City of Glass in the frozen southern land, an age-old machine called the Heart of the City radiates a power which locals call icefire. Most citizens are immune to it, but a few, always born with physical disabilities, can bend it to their will. For fifty years, the ruling Eagle Knights, who fly on the back of giant birds, have killed these Imperfects, fearing the return of the old royal family, who used icefire to cut out people's hearts, turning them into ghostly servitors.  The old king's grandson Tandor only sees the good things icefire brought: power and technology now forgotten while the people of the south live in dire poverty. He's had enough of seeing his fellow kinsfolk slaughtered by ignorant Knights, of Imperfect babies being abandoned on the ice floes to be eaten by wild animals. His grandfather's diary tells him how to increase the beat of the Heart the first step to making the land glorious once more. Arrogant as he is, he sets the machine in motion. All he needs is an army of Imperfect servitors to control the resulting power.  Isandor is Imperfect, an ex-Knight apprentice, betrayed by his best friend and running for his life.  The queen Jevaithi is Imperfect, living like a prisoner amidst leering Knights, surviving only because the common people would rebel if their beloved queen were harmed.  Both are young and desperate and should be grateful that Tandor wants to rescue them from their hopeless situations. Or so he thinks. The youngsters, however, have no inclination to become heartless ghosts, but while they defy Tandor, the Heart beats, and he alone cannot control its power.

Please note: The Rise of an Orphan, The Migdols of Samaris, The Biopunk Revolution, and The San Terian Genocide are all available separately for purchase. If you already own these episodes,you do not need to purchase this collection. **Winner of Wattpad's: Watty 2014: People's Choice Award for Science-Fiction** 'My name is Arturo Basilides. I am an orphan living in the slums of Medio City – the capital of a nation ravaged by a war which was won by extremists. Offered a choice between slavery and disenfranchisement, we exist in an underclass so disconnected we effectively inhabit a different era. Daily life involves scavenging, theft and substance abuse with a bunch of misfits who are somehow still in one piece after years of abandonment. I am a natural born fighter and although I despise warfare, I must witness the downfall of those bastard elites while fulfilling my romantic intentions with the forever unattainable girl of my dreams.' Skye City is a biopunk adventure set in a world where science is indistinguishable from magic and oppression is near-inescapable. Technology has created a newer, 'superior' form of human and genetically engineered monstrosities are as terrifying as anything encountered in your nightmares. The underclass have been underestimated and as they fight back the boundary between freedom fighter and terrorist becomes increasingly blurred. Meanwhile, the drug-induced haze of a traumatised mind places a question mark over the meaning of reality. 'Skye City: The Rise of an Orphan interweaves heavy social issues and philosophy, milking the sci-fi genre for all its worth. The slum dog's efforts to maintain their humanity in such a heartless age, when everything is going against them is palpable. The 99% versus 1% theme focuses our minds on where society might be heading and forces us to look at things how they are, if we wish them to be truly different.' Dean C.

It's an adult novel,from the first word to the very last. Kuivalainen starts her narrative with the roots of Russian mythology, deftly blending in Grimm tales, classic Greek and Norse mythology, and a real world setting with satisfying results. From the first page, a perilous plot of powers, magic, and monsters is promised. Kuivalainen in no way reneges on that promise."   Four Stars -Self Publishing Review "Fantasy fans will likely enjoy Anya's adventures, which feature novel supernatural elements in a modern setting…the story incorporates a fair share of surprises, and never fails to provide new scenes featuring bloodshed and strange new creatures."  Kirkus Reviews   After the murder of Anya's shaman grandfather, Tuoni the Finnish God of the Dead, arrives to give her a mission; awaken her magic and take up the family mantle of Gate Keeper to Skazki, the Otherworld, before monsters and dark gods break in and start a war in the real world.    Joined by Yvan, a Skazki prince who can transform into the legendary firebird, Anya is hunted by the prince's dark-magic-wielding brother, and they are forced to flee to Skazki for safety.

For a Ghost-Free Time, Call is an episodic supernatural adventure set in the emerald city of Eugene, Oregon which follows a young man, who–since he was a boy–has had the irritating ability to see ghosts all around him. In spite of this so-called “gift,” he found a way to cope and a few less than legitimate ways to make a little money on the side. But a con that started out as a way to make a quick buck will soon become a terrifying reality check about the world he thought he understood… “Eugene is teeming with ghosts and for some stupid, God damn reason, I’m the only one who can see them.” At the young age of nine, Jared developed the unnatural ability to see the lingering spirits of the dead, and beyond its initial novelty, all it’s ever done is piss him off. After having to grow up rather quickly on his own, Jared took something that would have easily driven most people insane and found a way to use his unwelcomed gift to his advantage. He studied and took notes from the most prevalent movies and television shows, and armed with every mainstream supernatural trope and cliché he could find, started his very own—more or less legitimate—ghost removal service. With years of hit-or-miss cons and a number of temporary solutions to combat the most crippling aspects of his “gift,” Jared finally found a way to live a “normal” life and a way to fit in with society. However, one day, while working a routine job for a rich mark, Jared will be confronted with his own lies and a glimpse of the truth behind the world around him and his abilities. For a Ghost-Free Time, Call is a supernatural thriller written by up and coming Pacific Northwest author Sean Kelly (author of "The Drive Home: A Tale of Bromance and Horror" and co-founder of Emerald Inkwell, A Pacific Northwest Publishing Community) and is the first story in an episodic series brought to you by Emerald Inkwell. Episode one is a FREE and complete short story setting the stage for an otherworldly series taking place all across Eugene, Oregon. Every city has their supernatural annoyances, but that doesn't mean you have to put up with them. Instead, for a ghost free time, just call.

>>>For a limited time you can get the Legacy Short Story Collection for free – copy and paste this link on your browser to find out more >>http://ryanattard.com Meet Erik Ashendale: wizard and monster hunter extraordinaire. Cursed from birth with extraordinary healing abilities, at the cost of actual use of magic, Erik rids the city from all that goes bump in the night, sometimes with the help of his demonic talking cat. But now Erik is in for the fight of his life. Seven ancient sources of power have been corrupted and taken the form of demons, the Seven Deadly Sins. One of them, Lust, is after a young succubus and Erik finds himself having to protect her. To make matters worse, the angels have strong-armed their way into our plane, hunting for this mega demon. How can one man survive in a struggle against gods and the primordial forces of the universe? The fate of the world hangs in the balance. Interview with the Author Q – What is the Legacy Series? A – The Legacy Series is an Urban Fantasy novel series about the paranormal adventures of Erik, with frequent appearances of his twin sister Gil, their demon familiars Amaymon and Mephisto, as well a host of other characters, each taken from folklore and mythology. Throughout the novels Erik usually tries to solve a mystery (usually bloody and rife with magic), all the while stopping the rising of the Seven Deadly Sins from taking power, or some other magical being trying to do something terrible. Q – Is there a particular order in which to read the books? A – The series is planned for 13 books but each novel has its own plot line that starts and finishes within that book. So a reader can grab book 2 and still follow onto book 3 and so on, even if they missed out of book 1. Of course, each book does leave clues for the following stories, and even in this one, book 1, I planted seeds for stories yet to come. So far the best way to read the Legacy series is as follows: – Firstborn (book 1) – Birthright (book 2) – Short story collection (only available through my mailing list – see above for a link or a URL to get it for free) Q – What makes this series so unique? A – It's a mixture of things actually. For one thing, it follows the wizard detective trope, so it can get a little hard boiled. But at the same time, I am unable to write without including some terrible jokes or one liners, so there will be a lot of humor within the dialogue. Also, the action. There is no shortage of magical sword fights, fireballs being thrown around, and I think in this one we break a ship – as in, one of those giant cruise liners. The elements that make this series what it is range from mythology, folklore, an unhealthy amount of anime and manga (which explains some of the asian mythology elements) as well as a life time of being a geek. Q – Where is the best place to get all the books in the series? A – Well, Amazon of course… Actually, all my books are available in a variety of online bookstores, but the best way to find out about the current books AND new releases, is through my mailing list, which can be accessed by pasting this url on your browser: http://ryanattard.com Also, did I mention you get free books just for signing up?

Rule number one: Don’t piss off the dragon—or Sugar. When Katie Bishop is asked to join an elite Savannah society that guards the city against all the supernatural riffraff that blows into town on a regular basis, she can’t refuse. Especially when the city’s latest threat has targeted her to help it escape from an ancient book it’s been imprisoned in for over a century. You see, Katie isn’t your average girl—she’s a bit of a beast and owns a tattoo shop at the edge of town. She’s also the only one who can tattoo a magical symbol on the demon’s back that will set it permanently free—and live to tell about it.  Trying to run a business and keep her secrets intact, Katie’s life is complicated enough. The easy thing would be to just apply the damn ink and be done with it, but there’s just one problem—the demon plans to open the crossroads and let all hell break loose. If that happens, the city might as well get used to serving a new master. With the help of her best friend, Lady Sugar—the queen of Savannah with hoodoo in her blood, and a coven of eclectic witches, they’ll fight to take back their city. No shrinking violets here. Maybe just a few misfits. Katie Bishop’s clan has plenty of heart and grit, and Sugar will have you rolling! Typical urban fantasy? Not exactly.

On the 12th anniversary of his mother’s disappearance, Zahn hikes to the island summit, only to be awoken by a brilliant object thundering down from the sky, impacting into the beach far below. In a frenzy, he sprints down the mountain, coming across a large crater in the silvery sand. He reaches in, pulling out a triangular plate made of a strange material, moonlight sliding off of it at strange angles. Conflicted over what to do, Zahn hides the fragment in his room for days, knowing that if he brings it to the observatory, they’ll confiscate it, and then he might never learn the truth. Then, in the middle of the night, Zahn is awoken by a tapping at his window. He opens it, and to his shock, it’s a man wearing a silvery uniform. There’s more to what Zahn found on the beach than he could have ever imagined, and he’s swept up into a galactic adventure with a cryptic captain and a living starship. Along the way, he encounters the Vakragha, a species bent on consuming entire stars. And to Zahn’s horror, he learns that they’re heading toward his homeworld. Only the Tulari, a stone that can heal the wounds they cut into space, offers any hope. But saving his world isn’t all he has to worry about. Just when Zahn lands on a moon stolen by the Vakragha, he makes a breakthrough, finally learning his mother’s true fate. Now he is faced with a heartbreaking decision that could either save his world or doom it forever. Praise for The Truth Beyond the Sky :   “Definitely an amazing adventure for all. The descriptive scenes captivate the imagination and one truly feels a part of the story. 5-stars! ” –AudiobookReviewer.com   “ A swift & compelling read. It's fun and I recommend it if you enjoy science fiction epics.” –Michael Coorlim, Author of the classic steampunk series Galvanic Century   “Readers of the Law of One books may find familiar the philosophical thread woven throughout. In my view, that makes this book a rare gem in the genre. I'm not exaggerating when I say that the underlying philosophy of the book, the mythos, shares much in common with the best of metaphysical literature.” –Thomas Minderle, Author of Fringe Knowledge for Beginners   “It was tough to look away. What's really interesting about this book is how multi-layered it is. Zahn's story manages to pull from the world around us, while also incorporating elements of mythology and hero epics. This is a coming of age story of the highest caliber. ” –Jessica Nottingham, Founder of HopelessBibliophile.com   “I was immediately drawn in by the vivid descriptions at the beginning of the story. The author has a knack for fully immersing a reader into the hero's plight, and I felt like I was hurtling through corridors of light alongside Zahn. ” –Erica Lane, Founder of FantasyBookLane.com

If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept —  was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth. ———————————— This 68,000 word urban fantasy is the first book of the Dowser Series by author Meghan Ciana Doidge.
