The Raven Thief

Enya has a few very simple goals in life. Take down a tyrannical king, give her gang a decent life, become the leader of Skeyya’s rebellion, and maybe become slightly more rich along the way. Okay, so maybe those goals aren’t so simple. And everything comes at a cost in the capital streets of Arden; King Eamon is after her head, and shadows lurk around every corner, waiting to spill secrets and blood. After being captured and sentenced to death in the esteemed royal palace, Enya never expected to run into three princes who need her help—and especially not ones thought to be dead for over a decade. An impossible quest is proposed; an ancient evil is rising, and only they can stop it. The Crimson Witch, a faerie demon imprisoned in the Black Lake, along with her undead army of ghouls. Enya has now found herself caught in a web of darkness and deceit as she guides these princes and her right-hand man, Carson, on a journey to track down the magical artifacts needed to take down the Crimson Witch once and for all. Love, friendship, and bravery will all be tested. Can three princes and a thief save the world?

Elkadanu

As Lored attempts to investigate the truth of the charges brought against Rue, the herb woman, Tari tries to hide her insecurities and doubts behind a facade of serenity.

This is a fantastic read. The characters are all well drawn and the landscape through which the characters move is familiar and easily imaginable, yet quite magical as well.” W Thomas

Lored and Tari must keep the twins’ presence on the Isle of Kiros a secret, as the taku-kevir starts to question witnesses to events that happened over a year before.

But Lored’s investigations are hampered by the Kirridian fascination for horse-racing.

If Lored can’t free the herb woman from prison, he and Otta (who is in hiding) won’t be able to travel north to continue their pursuit of the kaerlings who have abducted Lally and Derri.

Flame and Crystal Thorns

She vowed she’d never return to Faerie…
But vows were made to be broken.


As a human girl, Chloe is perfectly happy being back in the mortal realm where she belongs. She’s even become the town apothecary. When a fae from her past shows up begging her to return to Faerie, she utterly refuses.

But then she finds out an angry group of mortals are using iron to hold an entire castle full of fae hostage. And of course, the hostages include Chloe’s older sister and her sister’s beloved.

Reluctantly, Chloe packs a bag for what is supposed to be a short trip to Faerie.

But the mortals are more powerful than she expected. To fuel them, they have weapons, flames, and revenge. They won’t stop until they control every court in Faerie.

With the help of a new and mysterious magic and a devastatingly handsome fae companion, Chloe has to save Faerie before her sister and the other fae are killed.

The Scar Came from Destiny znfp-I

Welcome to the teeming world of Wildlight, where the Wing of the terrible Night is only a fading memory. Nightmares are had by all at one time or another, but to those who claim the decency of living, breathing existence, daybreak always comes to end it. Notwithstanding, Her fiercely loyal followers have seen through the shrouds of centuries-old mystery a way to free their dark empress, the Night Wing, from Her eternal imprisonment in the Forgotten Realm. All that’s way over the head of Jade Star, a kiffen on the run just getting by picking pockets. It’s certainly not a threat she can face alone…

Court of Bitter Thorn

Faerie wasn’t supposed to be real.

Tricked by a fae prince, Elora is stuck in the Faerie realm far from her young sisters who depend on her for survival. Under the terms of her bargain, she can’t go home to the mortal world until Prince Brannick becomes the next High King.

Or until he’s taken out of the running…

Sabotaging Brannick’s chance at the crown will be much faster than helping him win. The fae prince may be charming, powerful, and wickedly handsome, but that won’t stop Elora from selling his secrets to the highest bidder.

By day, she uses her master sword skills to train the prince. By night, she conspires with a rival king in a nearby court whose plans could destroy half of Faerie.

Soon, lives are at stake that she never expected. She’ll have to choose who to save: her beloved sisters or half the inhabitants of Faerie.

The choice would be easy… if a certain prince weren’t digging his way into her heart.
