Ghosts of Witches Past (Witches of Tower Hill Book 1)

by Corinne O’Flynn

A mother’s love.
A dying wish.
Secrets from the grave.
The past never forgets…

Seventeen-year-old Wavy McClintock is a witch with the rare ability to see ghosts. Traumatic events with “city ghosts” when she was a child have forced Wavy into a life of seclusion. She never leaves the safety of Tower Hill, where the local ghosts are easy to spot and avoid.

Niall Tobin is a witch from an outcast family. At seventeen, he is unable to stop his parents when they strip him of his magical soul in a plot to clear their family name. When Niall escapes, he seeks out the only living witness to the murder that ruined his family. His search brings him to Tower Hill.

When a ghost appears to Wavy, revealing a mysterious symbol that sends her on a hunt for answers, she discovers Niall injured in the woods. Convinced that he will die if left alone, Wavy defies her family and agrees to help Niall.

But helping Niall means leaving the safety of her home and facing the ghosts who want nothing more than to tear her apart. As Wavy and Niall work together to learn the truth about the murder, they discover connections that haunt both their families and uncover long-buried secrets that will change their lives forever.



Brother Dust: The Resurgence

by Steve Beaulieu

The world is dying at the hands of a brutal Empire.

Brother Dust, a changeling born amidst a sandstorm, has seen it all before. He’s watched as the heavy imperial boots have crushed dozens of planets. Watched as their drills pierce the core of a world, slowly killing it while the natives are kept docile and compliant with the gifts and pleasures the empire brings them from the stars.

He will watch no more.

Brother Dust will use his ability to mold his own body into devastating weapons to wage a one-man war against the malevolent High Father and the empire’s diabolical machines.

The body count is rising, but the empire must be stopped.



Sword Bearer: Return of the Dragons Book 1

by Teddy Jacobs

You swung a staff until you were ready to swing a sword. Then you went on all kinds of adventures — fighting monsters, casting spells, and saving damsels in distress. At least that was how it was supposed to work, but I didn’t believe a word of it.

BOOK ONE OF THE EPIC FANTASY SERIES RETURN OF THE DRAGONS

Locked in his room in the castle, young Anders yearns for adventure. Until the day he opens a magic portal and a girl bursts into his locked room with a chemical warlock hot on her trail.

And adventure finds him — an adventure full of danger, full of blood, fire, demons and evil. To face it, he’ll need the sword given him by his blademaster, need the ancient words his grandfather gave him on his deathbed. Need the song that runs in his own blood, in his veins.

A sword will be reforged, magic words discovered, battles fought, friends made and lost, secrets revealed. And blood will be spilled. But will blade, word and blood be enough?

Finished with Sword Bearer? Check out book two of Return of the Dragons: WIND RIDER, now available.

Chaos Rises: A Veil World Urban Fantasy

by Pippa DaCosta

When the veil fell, any half-demons not strong enough to withstand Chaos were torn apart. Some, like me and my brother, survived the Fall. Most did not.

That’s the good news. The bad news saw a whole other world try and devour ours. Demons came in countless waves. Destroying. Killing. Many people thought it was the end…

The Fall lasted a week.

Tens of thousands died.

Hell almost claimed our world as its own.

And then, from one day to the next, it was over. The veil came back, stronger than ever. I’m not sure if anyone knows how it was put right. But I do know it’s been six months since the Fall, me and my brother are on the run, and the leftover demons aren’t the most dangerous things in LA.

We are.

The Grave Winner

by Lindsey R. Loucks

Book 1 of a Spine-Chilling YA Paranormal Romance Series

Leigh Baxton is terrified her mom will come back from the dead — just like the prom queen did.

While the town goes beehive over the news, Leigh bikes to the local cemetery and buries some of her mom’s things in her grave to keep her there. When the hot and mysterious caretaker warns her not to give gifts to the dead, Leigh cranks up her punk music and keeps digging.

She should have listened.

Two dead sorceresses evicted the prom queen from her grave to bury someone who offered certain gifts. Bury them alive, that is, then resurrect them to create a trio of undead powerful enough to free the darkest sorceress ever from her prison inside the earth.

With help from the caretaker and the dead prom queen, Leigh must find out what’s so special about the gifts she gave, and why the sorceresses are stalking her and her little sister. If she doesn’t, she’ll either lose another loved one or have to give the ultimate gift to the dead – herself.



Lovers and Liars: Manhattan

by Liz Meldon

The glory days of Ancient Greece are long gone, and the gods of the Old World are scattered across the globe. As their popularity dwindles, as their worshipers forget, their power fades. Luckily for Aphrodite, she’s a household name. After all, how could anyone ever forget the Greek goddess of Love?

Unfortunately, no one seems to know or care about her divinity. In a world of skeptics and technology-crazed mortals, loneliness and boredom have taken hold. Her life consists of romance advice columns, martini bars, and flings with empty-headed men–until she meets Loki.

She’s intrigued: it’s been decades–centuries even–since she laid eyes on another god, particularly one outside her pantheon. In their short time together, she realizes just how much she needs the companionship of one of her own. Unfortunately, despite their immediate chemistry, Loki seems more interested in catching a murderous maenad than swapping stories about the old days.

Can she convince Loki to stay and make her life a little less lonely, or will he persuade her to join him on his quest for more worshipers? His questionable tactics make her uneasy, but how can she turn down the opportunity to live as she once did: freely, powerfully, and lustfully as Aphrodite of Olympus.

Lovers and Liars: Manhattan is the first novella in the Lovers and Liars serial. It is intended for readers 18+, and is a little steamier than the follow-up books. It contains a headstrong heroine and a snarky anti-hero love interest. While each book has a full plot, Lovers and Liars is a continuous story and should be read from the beginning in order to avoid any confusion.



Dragon Assassin

by Piers Anthony

Roan Quigley is a down-and-out private eye in Los Angeles, eking out his meager existence by following cheating spouses and taking on the odd case.

And there is no case odder than this…

On a lazy day, with clients few and far between, a very strange man appears in the detective’s office. Roan can’t quite place the odd accent, nor can he make much sense of the man’s clothing. But when the stranger produces a bag of gold, Roan perks up.

Soon, Roan’s simple world is turned upside down as he journeys into the Realm, a magical kingdom that lies parallel to Los Angeles. Here, the ace detective is thrown into a world of flying dragons, orcs and wizards, where spells are real and magic is deadly. Now Roan must use all his skills and knowledge to not only stay alive but to track down a ruthless killer and save a kingdom in the process.
