Arcamira

When the elfin princess, Atalanta, is snatched from her palace and a vampire crashes a ball at the human castle, all of Arcamira is on high alert. 

To uphold their alliance with the elves and to satisfy their desire for adventure, the young human royals, Andromeda, Felicity, Michael, and Andrew, set out with a search party to find Atalanta.

The young warriors quickly find themselves facing down a monster unlike anything they've ever seen before. The vampires and werewolves they thought were nearly extinct are rising up under the banner of Tyrannus, a hybrid of the two fearsome species. He's raising an army in a campaign to rid Arcamira of humans and elves, and it's up to the young royals and the friends they meet along the way to stop him.

Firewalkers

Firewalkers are feared by everyone. Powerful and destructive, they have spent the last few centuries in isolation from the rest of the world. But recently they've started emerging from the walls of their cities. 

People around the world fear them, cults worship them, and no one knows what they want.

Adelynn Wardrop, the only person rumored to have ever succeeded in killing a Firewalker, sets out to find answers and pay back an overdue debt. In her efforts to help put the world right, she becomes two things things she never wanted to be: a legend and a killer.

The Girl in the Hidden Room

On starry nights, Cuthbert Longmire sees a captivating girl on the rooftop of the library next to his flat. Except... this night, instead of the girl, a shocking discovery emerges in the cold.

Detective Inspector Sarah Brooks is usually unkempt, a chronic smoker and a frazzled mum. She is also the best shot at the Met Police.

Detective Lucas Bell, soon-to-be MI-5 agent, is uncompromising and exacting.

Together they will uncover a different kind of criminal; centuries old creatures and products of folklore wreaking havoc all over London.

ON HOLY GROUND - Knowing the secret behind the magic changes everything...

MOOCHI'S LEGACY - Originally published in the Hugo-nominated Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine

Untested

On the day the riders came to town, they kidnapped Kella and brought her to Lord Perrin’s keep. To win her freedom, she must cure Perrin’s son from the magic poisoning his blood. Where Kella is from, it is dangerous if people find out that you are a magic-user. That’s why she and her mother had never settled in one spot for long—as soon as rumors started circulating about her abilities, she had to disappear fast. She never learned how to properly use her gifts. But at Perrin's keep she meets Taroy, who is tasked with guarding against her escape. He wants to protect her and keep her safe, but Kella is on her own when it comes to the magic that must be worked. In a race against time, Kella begins her journey to master the magic within and save Perrin's son—despite her fear that she is just not good enough to perform such complicated magic. Untested is a fantasy story for young adults that follows a young woman's journey of discovering that believing in yourself is a magic of its own.

Kensei 2: The Love of Danger

Jamie Hattori can't get a break. As the superhero Kensei, she defeated the goddess Eris and figured her life could just get back to normal. Or, at least, as normal as things can be when you fight crime and can talk to the spirit world. But now her girlfriend is flaking out on her, her parents have separated, and a World War Two supervillain has come back from the dead with plots to kill Jamie. 

As if that wasn't bad enough, she has to deal with two of her least favorite people: her grandparents.

Living Vessels

They've always been part of our world, incarnating in different forms and reliving the same myths again and again. They have many names, many bodies, but their souls remain the same. They're rare but not uncommon, though their secrets remain buried in their souls underneath the amnesia of rebirth.

They've always been together, finding each other through the ages. One dies, the other lives, as it has been since the beginning. The first time was the hardest but it never gets easier. 

This is a story of love and reincarnation in a hidden world of incarnated gods in living vessels.

The Last Minuters

When recent divorcee Margaret Ayinger decides to end her life, she wants to go out in style.  For those who have done their homework and for whom money is no object there is only one place for that: The Precipice Hotel.  Like a hospice for the terminally eccentric, it has stood for over a hundred years in a region plagued by yearly forest fires.  Upon arrival, Margaret finds the old place nothing like what was advertised. 

Oh sure, the staff are friendly.  And the food?  Positively four star!  Something about it though just doesn't sit well with her.  For instance, the people who randomly swan dive from their balconies late at night, the impossible thing living in her bedroom, and the automatons in black body stockings roaming the halls.  Oh, and the purple monster named Fred who lives in the gorge.  

Tales From Midhgardhur

Tales from Midhgardhur is a series that expands the stories of the world of Midhgardhur, setting of the novel The Saga of Asa Oathkeeper: A Midhgardhur Fantasy. The setting is a Norse fantasy world, and its stories are retellings of Norse mythology, or stories that put a fantasy spin on Norse history and legend and folktale, or completely original stories that share that setting. If you like fantasy, Vikings, shieldmaidens, Norse mythology, and the like, you'll love Tales of Midhgardhur!

New Orleans Supernatural Weekly

Following a series of unfathomable attacks, journalist Sayeva Reardon decides to publish a (bi)weekly news magazine revealing the true nature of New Orleans' less mundane community. She regularly reports on stories ranging from the best to the worst in the city's supernatural underground, covering every creature and species without prejudice. But not everyone appreciates Sayeva's efforts in bringing what had so long been hidden from human eyes to light, and she soon finds herself fighting and running from danger at every angle.

The Devil's Got Dirt

"Blix just cheated death. After an accident, she was supposed to open her eyes in hell. She's been given a second chance, and the devil can’t stand it.

He’s sending his best missionaries to right the wrongs and will use all the dirt on her that he's got to put her under the ground—for good."

 

The Devil, You Say

Thomas Carlton, wealthy man about town, and his faithful companion, Grace Glass, don masks to fight crime in 1930s Cobalt City as Devil Cat and Imp.

Vlad the Conqueror

Set in the majestic Carpathian Mountains, this epic features Wallachian Prince Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler) as he defends Transylvania against the invading Ottoman Empire.  In the midst of the struggle, he meets the stunning Willomina, his future queen.

However, treachery abounds, from the wealthy merchants of his own kingdom to greedy former allies, and even Vlad's own family cannot be trusted.  Against overwhelming odds his small army begins to push back the invaders, only to have personal tragedy lead Vlad into a downward spiral that results in his damnation and begins his dark journey as the historic Count Dracula.

Crossing the Streams

Non-human romance. Tarot-powered difference engines. The bureaucracy of the gate to Hell. These and more appear in this anthology of strange stories by Jeremy Zimmerman. This anthology collects five genre-bending tales from fantasy to steampunk to cyberpunk.

“I won’t spoil the ending, but I will offer that the imagery in this tale is so wonderful that the settings sometimes transported me away from the main character’s conflict. The scenes in this story, like Impressionist art, consist of ordinary subjects displayed in mesmerizingly vacillating light. Whereas I usually care most about plot and about character development, these descriptions were so robust that I would gladly read additional pages of Zimmerman’s work just to reimmerse myself in his language.”
– KJ Hannah Greenberg, Tangent, regarding “A Crazy Kind of Love”

“Unchained Melody is a sharp, beautiful blow to the heart. Zimmerman wrote a heroine who is recognizable; a woman who is defining herself, on her terms.”
– Lillian Cohen-Moore, author of The Imperial Companion, and Hatavat Chalom

This race, the Silver, are as varied in their pleasures and vices as humanity. Through the millennia they colour our lives with fantasy, with romance, with wonder and with horror. 

So how well do you really know the people with whom you surround yourself? Your friends, your colleagues, acquaintances and lovers? And if you can't even be sure of them, then how can you ever trust a stranger to be what he appears?

The Millennial Cycles: Menazia Reborn

HOSNAH, a powerful and magical woman from a mystical world, is birthing a child.  This child is fathered by a human, ABOA ELDAHAB, who was charmed and seduced by HOSNAH with her magical powers for this very purpose.  ABOA ELDAHAB since has died in an accident caused by a mysterious cult.  Once every thousand years, the protectors of earth must produce a human child to stand against evil.  If this child does not overcome the evil one, the earth will enter a thousand years of utter darkness and chaos ruled by the dark forces of evil from HOSNAH's mystical world.

That is the agreement between good and evil to keep the balance between them.  Earth holds many treasures of mystical qualities that are highly valueable to the evil races from HOSNAH's world.  While HOSNAH's people love earth because of the humans and animals which inhabit it, knowing their potential of good and qualities of love.  

Many thousands of years ago, good and evil lived on earth together.  While the evil forces desired to rule earth, the good only desired to protect the earth from them.  A war ensued and many magical beings were destroyed, both good and evil.  An agreement was made to keep the peace.  Once the conflict ended, either good or bad would inhabit earth and the other races would not be allowed on earth.  In earth's dark histories have been those few times that evil reigned.  Earth barely survived those dark days, with humanity suffering the most and nearly going extinct each time.

The end of the millennium has arrived and the time of conflict is at hand.  Not only is HOSNAH pregnant and bearing a son but another son is being born.  The evil one, MENAZIA, which HOSNAH'S son HADE will face.

Then there’s her slipping grades, the vampire owls, and the cute roller derby chick looking for romance. And even worse, Jamie’s hero-hating mom is starting to get suspicious. Can Jamie defeat her mysterious nemesis without tearing her family apart? And more importantly, will she score her first kiss?
 

Brutal Grace

When Rylee first wakes up to the fact that she has been repeating the same day over and over again with no memory of anything, she is certain of one thing; she wants out.

Night Roads

Aethos

It was the Breath of God, and to the people of the City it was the core of their world. It warmed their homes and their hearts, it sustained them and strengthened them, and it filled their lives with joy. Known as the Aether to those who studied it, its intricacies remained elusive to all. It was imperceptible to the naked eye, yet its presence was felt everywhere. It was infinitely subtle, yet immeasurably powerful. With it, the City stood as a fortress against the desert winds, and as a bastion of hope and of faith. Its people lived without fear of disease, war, famine, or poverty. Life was perfect.

 

But as the pious civil officer Nathaniel Grey will soon come to suspect, the true nature, and source, of the Aether may be vastly far removed from everything he had been led to believe.

Redemption

Huddled in the shadows, Jae watches while one of the Mé'Draak brands his cellmate as a slave before viciously dragging him from the room. Feeling the weight of the metal collar around his neck, Jae is left alone to contemplate his own fate. Will the afternoon session finally Break him? Will it kill him? Or will he end up like the boy, a helpless pawn neither living nor dead?

For thousands of years they have lived in peace, but a deadly menace now threatens their existence.
