A Box Full of Ashes: Eliot & O’Hare book one

by Anna Roberts

Three misfits, three smoke breaks and one series of extraordinary events.

An angel appears on Brighton beach, a hospital patient bursts into flames in Plymouth and a goth spontaneously combusts in a churchyard in Sidmouth; it’s all in a day’s work for stage magician and freelance paranormal investigator Francis Eliot. For pathologist Camilla O’Hare it’s nothing short of lunacy, particularly when one of the victims’ bodies disappears from the morgue in the length of time it takes her to answer the phone.

When the two of them join forces to figure out what’s really going on behind the sudden rash of spontaneous human combustions taking the West Country by storm, neither can predict just how weird things are about to get. A missing cat, a dog-eared copy of Dracula, a guitar case full of garlic and a priest so turbulent that even Henry II’s drunken knights would think twice – all add up to a hypothesis so extravagantly nuts that nobody wants to come out and say the V-word.

Except at some point you’re going to have to admit the obvious. Especially when the obvious keeps trying to eat you.

This fast-paced British urban fantasy is the first in a brand new series that will delight fans of Bram Stoker, Jonathan Creek and anyone who was ever sceptical about the idea of sparkling vampires.

Vampire Requiem (Part One) (The Blood and Shadows Chronicles Book 2)

by P.K. Allen

Twists, turns, and double-crosses flow like blood in this action-packed, sexy vampire thriller.

Vampire vixen Diana Devereaux just wants to live eternal life on her own terms, wild and free. But irresistible influences drag her back into the dangerous world of supernatural politics and intrigue, where her past as a deadly assassin ignites the vengeance of those who burn to see her destroyed.

Vampire Requiem Part One sweeps newly-recruited Spectrum agents Diana and Chase from the glitter of St. Petersburg and the frozen steppes of Russia to the dark, ancient lands of Romania. Together they fight to guard and deliver a valuable asset to an unprecedented supernatural summit, targeted at every turn by murderous rival factions bent on stealing the asset for themselves. Diana and Chase are not just partners in this twisted spy-world, they are eternal soul-mates, and she would do anything to protect him amidst the inevitable spiraling of deceptions, betrayal, blood, and vampire passions. Nothing is as it seems, and their closest allies could prove to be their greatest enemies, and with every decision they make the fate of the supernatural world hangs in the balance.
