Arachne: A Pyre of Angels (Chronicles of Arachne Book 1)

by Kent David Kelly

(ARACHNE is a dark fantasy, gothic, paranormal and steampunk fairy tale with a young adult protagonist.)

When you die for the one you love, death is only the beginning …

An epic dark fantasy from the author of the award-winning COMPLETE ALICE IN WONDERLAND, ARACHNE Book I – DEATH, THE BEGINNING chronicles the death and afterlife of Elspeth Wight, a young Steam Age noblewoman whose beloved sister Christabel has died. Without Christabel, the heartbroken Elspeth forsakes her own beliefs. Haunted and reckless, she dares to believe in the whispers of an elderâ??and her childhood protectorâ??Symon Adler. Symon swears to Elspeth that there is a secret afterlife, and it is there that Christabel’s soul breathes on. He promises the sisters could be reunited in a dark and Gothic paradise, the eternal purgatorial netherworld known only as Embris.

To descend and embrace her sister’s soul, Elspeth must forsake the world of the living. She must poison herself, and die. In rebirth, she lives a never-ending nightmare, a doll-twisted masquerade that spirals down into a truer reality than our own. Falling into Embris, Elspeth discovers the deepest secret of human madness: death is only our flowering, an invitation to a bittersweet eternity, one more wondrous than any mortal faith could ever seek. Embris is revealed as a shadowy Eden, where tortured spirits of the dead are enslaved as puppets and crusaders, lost in an eternal war between primeval horrors and darkest angels. To free the soul of Christabel, Arachne must force her way through poisonous forests, covens of ghost-hounds, the souls of murdered children and a cathedral carved all of ice.

But Elspeth is stolen away to champion the spider-goddess Atropos, and the deepest of living nightmares draws her in. All around her Embris is dying, locked in the endgame of the Immortals’ war. The Idolaterâ??a dark god and enslaver of the souls of butchered childrenâ??covets the sisters’ bloodline, in order to birth a deeper paradise from the ashes of the old. Elspeth finds herself torn in an epic struggle not only for her sister’s soul, but also for her own.

(A complete novel, 164,000 words.)

Revelation: Kastor Blackwood Series: Demon Kin

by T.R. Lester

When I was four years old, my inept biological parents decided they wanted to summon a demon.
They planned to summon one and control him so they could gain riches. However, they didn’t realize you can’t control a demon, you can only enter into an agreement with them, and so, their demon was able to walk out of the summoning circle that they didn’t close properly.
They intended to summon a lesser demon, what they got was Abaddon the Destroyer, the angel of the abyss, king of the plagues, and all that evil stuff.
He took me back to hell with him and handed me over to Lucifer, who trained me to be a demon hunter.
I didn’t have the swing set in the back yard, the toy box in the corner full of toys, a bicycle, or skateboard. I had daggers, knives, and books that list all demons and their powers, lessons to create pentagrams, sigils and wards, instructions on sending demons back to hell and maintaining a mind link with Lucifer.
They say a second war is coming. Most call it the second coming of our Father.
My name is Kastor Blackwood. I’ve been chosen to prevent that war.
