Favored (Among the Favored Book 1)

by C. L. Stone

FROM USA TODAY AND PUBLISHER’S WEEKLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR C L STONE: In a world where ghosts, magic, and dragons exist, one desperate girl faces a dangerous competition to become one of the Favored. 
Kuni is a country built on honor. But honor is never easy to maintain when the kingdom is filled with corruption, and enemies are threatening war at the borders. When the old emperor dies, a new one rises and he needs people he can trust by his side to help purge the corruption in his realm. 
Orphaned Mizuki has only ever known farming, but working the land is difficult, lonely work and it’s getting harder every year to do it alone. She’s facing another long winter and near starvation, until a royal decree arrives. She is to leave her home and make a journey to the capital. The new emperor demands the best citizens of Kuni to join his court, and she must register and be tested to find if her place is among them. 
Mizuki is doubtful. Who would want a poor farming girl in a royal court? It’s not until a woman who claims to have been employed by the last empress finds her, and promises she can turn Mizuki from a sow into royalty. But competition at court is deadly, and after only a couple of days in the city, Mizuki realizes she needs the old woman, not just to learn the ways of the royals, but for her survival. 
She’ll need people she can trust and will have to keep them close as she struggles to stay in the competition and alive. 
Join Mizuki, Sota, Ryuu, and Shima as they face incredible odds to become one of the Favored in this epic, Asian-based fantasy.

The Wolf’s Call (Two-Natured London Book 1)

by Susanna Shore

Wolves and humans aren’t an easy mix. But what if she weren’t a human?

“Are you trying to intimidate me, Mr Green?” she asked calmly, refusing to lean back.
“Yes, I am,” he answered. He pressed his hands on the armrests of her chair and leaned closer to her face, never breaking the eye contact. “Is it working?” Closing in the short distance, he kissed her.

Having been raised by humans-first parents, Charlotte Thornton is completely unprepared for a man like Raphael Green, a wolf-shifter. After a lifetime of controlling herself, the onslaught of emotions he causes in her, both lust and aggravation, seem like too much to handle. Unlike human men around her, Rafe is not weak. But neither is she, and Rafe is about to learn it. She finds herself drawn to him unlike any man before, only to learn that he won’t date humans. But what if she weren’t a human?

Rafe never thought he would pursue a human, let alone a woman as dominant as Charly, but his wolf side has other ideas. For a shifter, ignoring their beast’s choice is practically impossible, but he will try; his brother’s marriage is enough of a warning. But as he is drawn to her with a maddening lust, it becomes difficult to prevent his wolf from putting out its call for her. Then her life is threatened and everything changes.

From the high-end neighbourhood of London to peaceful countryside, their enemies hunt them. Time for making up their minds is running out.

Restriction: Age Of Magic – A Kurtherian Gambit Series (The Rise of Magic Book 1)

by CM Raymond

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magicâ?¦” Arthur C. Clarke 

She didn’t mean to use magic

She didn’t even know she HAD magic

She just wanted to save her brother, who was dying in her arms.

Accused of using illegal magic, and sentenced to a cruel death at the hands of the city’s guards, Hannah has no choice but to trust in the aid of a strange old man who wields unimaginable power.

The Founder has returned to correct the wrongs of unjust. But to do that, he needs Hannah, a young woman from the city slums. She has a key to unlocking a power even greater than his own–if she can only learn to trust herself and the magic flowing within her blood.

Restriction is a fantasy set in the far future, where magic and monsters ravage the land of Irth and only the strong survive.

Set on the foundation laid by the Kurtherian Gambit Series, Restriction tells an entirely new story in the Age of Magic–and of the heroes and villains who battle for control of its destiny.
