Purebred: Soul of the Mixed Blood (Thurian Saga Book 5)

by James Todd Lewis

Orphaned by the brutal death of her mother right before her very eyes, a young Anati child flees into a nightmare of lonely survival, desperate hunger, and fearfully haunted nights. In the very same city, a young purebred Nephti kit has everything she could ever want – prestigious parents, a noble family house, and a well appointed lair. These two will become the heroines of their age and legends of the ages to come, but the path that leads them there will be neither easy nor glorious. Vanarra Anasto grows up as an outcast, hiding from society while Sahnassa de Orturu flees from the expectations her parents and family lay upon her. As Vanarra claws her way slowly forward, hoping to survive and one sol find a future, Sahnassa’s future is challenged and undermined by the very family sworn to protect and nurture her. When the two meet, necessity pulls them together, but the clash of their different worlds constantly pulls them apart. Although they settle into an uncomfortable friendship, Sahnassa’s family begins making overtures of reconciliation towards her. Vanarra feels bitterly betrayed, and the pain and hurt of so many seasons of abuse and neglect from the paws of purebreds causes her to lash out. Emotionally wounded, Sahnassa flees back to her family, wondering if a purebred can ever understand the soul of the mixed blood.



The Scavenging

by Jevon Brown

Jansen doesn’t believe in magic. He doesn’t believe in ancestors, sangomas, witchcraft, or muti, and it irritates the irascible detective that his new, unasked-for young partner, Hadley Gcumise, does.
But this murder is proving difficult to rationally explain. The butchered girl left no footprints, but is in the veld two hundred meters from the nearest Wadeville factory. The paw prints in the dirt around her body belong to an entire cackle of hyenas. Something was hacked away from the girl’s back, and there is talk around Joburg of a powerful new muti, made of wings twice as large as even the biggest vulture.
Jansen is forced to entertain the possibility not only that their victim had wings, but that African magic is wild, deadly and real.
A centuries-old battle between two powerful sangomas is coming to a head. And as the detectives work their case they will close in on suspects who obey neither law, nor science.

Bremer (Mage Bremer Book 1)

by Connor Marsland

Mage Bremer Roland Tiergarten, second-line Battle Mage of the Kingdom of Albion, has a problem. Numerous problems, actually, between court intrigue, an occasionally grating boyfriend, being stuck on a small ship in the middle of the ocean, and one large, stupid lizard. It takes a certain kind of person to be a hero though – the kind of idiot who agrees to cross the ocean on a leaky old boat, fighting pirates and boredom (but mostly boredom) the whole way. Everyone wants to be a dragon slayer, right?



Skerryvore (The Dark Net Book 1)

by Lee Williams

Teenage twins Rose and Daniel aren’t allowed phones, computers, even a TV, thanks to their conspiracy-obsessed father. But when the people he always thought were after him actually turn up, the twins realise their dad wasn’t as paranoid as they’d always thought.
With their father missing and their house burned to the ground, Rose and Daniel find themselves at the centre of a worldwide conspiracy that stretches back through the ages, involving some of the most powerful and mysterious organisations on the planet.
Why them? Why their dad? The answers to these questions and other darker mysteries lie on a remote Scottish island, beyond the doors of an ancient house called Skerryvore.
These mysteries link the twins to a Dark Age king and queen, to a secret society that stands behind the City of London, and an energy source that links some of the world’s most ancient sites into a network that has the power – literally – to change the world.

Skerryvore is the first book in the Dark Net series

Faced with the decision of leaving all she knows, she must choose – abandon her house and those who remain or seek some new incarnation of her life shrouded in uncertainty, knowing…
