The Cursebound Thief

Six of Crows meets Heist Society in this new young adult fantasy series. The world wants a hero. The curse needs a thief. The party of the decade stands between Jerek Holden and saving the people he would do anything to protect. After twelve years, he’s finally found a way to break the curse that ripped all magic from the world and destroyed the peace that took generations to build. All he needs is one, simple artifact. But he can’t steal the heliostone alone. A girl with a soul of fire. A vampire bound by a vow. A werewolf bent on revenge. A knight torn between honor and duty. A hacker to keep them all alive. The fate of magic lies in their hands―if they can survive long enough to pull off the heist of the century.

The Young Gods

In this post-adolescent coming-of-age story, a depressed millennial uses her new and devastating powers to ensure that she will never be lonely (or bored) again. After grappling with her overbearing family, her suddenly ambiguous sexuality, her deep desire for independence, and her growing cynicism, Estella Edgehill suffers an accidental overdose. In the afterlife, she is informed that the Gods of old are retiring, and she has been chosen as a replacement. Upon returning to life, she leaves home and meets the boy and girl of her dreams. Together, the three embark on several misadventures, from a shoplifting spree aided by their burgeoning powers at a futuristic shopping mall, to attending a lavish forest party hosted by hipster ghosts, to an encounter with a student-devouring, spectral Wraith on their college campus. On top of the supernatural alterations in the world, Estella must contend with her attachment to her writing teacher, an aging literary titan whose bitterness is only outmatched by his cruelty, and her attraction to her forty-something-year-old neighbor, who is unhappily married to her husband. Relationships are tough, and growing up is hard to do, even for the Gods.

cover

Tidings of Hardship is the first book in the Mixed Tidings duology

Seventeen-year-old Alex longs for the day when he graduates from high school and leaves his abusive parents’ house forever. But before that can happen, Fate intervenes. . . . One night, during a tense family dinner, Alex notices a gremlin crouching in the corner of his parents’ dining room. A moment later it suddenly disappears. Alex finds himself questioning his sanity and wondering what he really saw that night. Over the next several weeks, he catches sight of several more bizarre entities.

These strange sightings are a glimpse Alex has been given into a hidden reality where a war is being waged between demons and legendary creatures of the Natural World. And the demons are winning. Nearly all beings from the Natural World have been caged up, and Mother Nature and the God of the North Wind have been considering what resources they have left to combat their foes. But they are not entirely alone. Three long dead heroes have been stirred from their complacency in the afterlife and are ready to seek out someone they can train to fight back against the demons and inspire hope among humanity. Alex’s newfound ability to see gremlins has piqued their interest.

This debut novel by Rob Snyder offers a rich and elaborate world of complex characters and an engrossing plot.

Mixed Tidings

cover

This contemporary fantasy explores the tale of Pandora’s Box and its consequences in a world of complex characters and vivid imagery.

It’s the 21st century and wind gods and nymphs are fighting for survival, demons are lurking in shadows, and 17-year-olds Alex and Cynthia are having their ordinary lives transformed by extraordinary adventures.

Alex has spent his life being ignored at school and trying to survive an abusive home life. Then during a tense family dinner, he glimpses a gremlin in his parents’ dining room. A moment later it vanishes. He tries to dismiss it, but over the next several days more gremlins show up: at home, at school, at the park. No one else can see them, and no one else seems to care, except for Cynthia, a compassionate classmate who unexpectedly intercedes in a school fight on his behalf one day.

While Alex and Cynthia are testing the waters of their new-found friendship, a trio of long-dead heroes is looking to train a new warrior, as demons feed off humanity’s vices and a maniacal figure of legend schemes to assassinate Mother Nature herself. The two teenagers may soon find themselves called upon to rescue both the Natural World and the man-made one.
