The Spirit Collectors (Thralldoms, Book 1)

by M. Amanuensis Sharkchild

What is the worth of your spirit?

In the world of Awya, where life is scattered across isles in a seemingly endless ocean of black liquid, the Isle of Winder is home to uymns whose primary trade is agriculture and flower cultivation. Here, an umyn boy by the name of Amory Demshen becomes obsessed with Tempertime Cemeteryâ??a collection of portals powered by spirits that link the isles of Awya together, and a place forbidden to those without proper training and knowledge.

Amory disobeys the laws and his mother, sacrificing the qualities of youth and the virtues of his upbringing to pursue a selfish adventure connived by a hidden, sinister force. Unnerving truths and perilous consequences await as Amoryâ??equipped with an authoritative jar, a chest of bewitching cards, and a flying stone slabâ??plunges into the darkness of the spirit collectors.

Will Amory learn the worth of a spirit in time to save his own?

Absolute Black – Part one

by Lori J. Lawrence

“Every night, when I went to bed, I expected to hear him, in vain. I wanted him more than anything else, a primordial need that was slowly consuming me, yet I was terrified by it. Part of me still couldn’t believe it.”

“That kiss tasted of shattered memories. It had the bitter taste of the past and the sweet taste of the present. I did not desire anything else, I did not expect anything else. A single thought returned and became overwhelming: «I am yours.»”

A novel rich in magic and mystery set in Treviso, a city suffused in arcane secrets. Why look further away when all you need to do is to look into your own past? Absolute Black, an urban fantasy with a Gothic flavor, set in Italy.

Treviso becomes Absolute Black.

Black and white make up our essence. It may happen, however, that black prevails and that it is so intense that it stirs the most hidden emotions. Like something crawling inside us, darkness inches slowly, turning the soul one color: Absolute Black.

Erica is alone when she sees him for the first time, sitting at the edge of the canal, lost in her own world. Dargo is but an elusive shadow, impossible to portray, and yet he is able to find a way into her conscience. From that moment everything changes, in and around her. Not even Arjuna, her best friend, remains the same: dark omens begin to haunt him, tormenting his dreams.

Actors, unaware of the role they play and yet with a precise script to follow, as in previous “forms”, they live divided between a distant past and the everyday life in which they search for their own destiny. Mattia wants to create a new existence for himself; Sofia strives to find a place in the present, even though everything brings her back to the love she lost. Finally Dargoâ?¦ a ghost, a dark entity that day after day becomes more and more real and tangible. A shadow demanding revenge.

Among the evocative alleys of Treviso, magic, love and mystery relive one life after another, in an endless repetition, like an opera that never stops being played.
