How do you stop being a thief? Zizy Zakar assumed quitting her job, stealing from her boss, and teleporting hundreds of miles away was one way to give it a go.

When she meets Laysa, a charming librarian with bold curiosity, Zizy can’t help but want to bring her along on this one last job. She’ll just hide her past, her present, and any complicated info about herself. What could go wrong?

But as an alluring photojournalist with a history of blackmail starts to suspect his involvement in the Nightwalker case, Joe is stretched thin between past mistakes and his search for the missing, where every face he sees is a life seemingly doomed to a bad end. Maybe that's why he keeps having visions of a girl in yellow sneakers from the killer's past—the fleeting hope that someone made it out alive.

The Woeling Lass

Dave Dobson

An assassin leaves Gueran Declais near death and his family decimated. As he is whisked to safety, an apprentice with the Inquisitors' Guild starts to pull together the clues.

An assassin hunts Inspector Gueran Declais through the streets of Frosthelm, and she is not acting alone. Just as he learns that his family may have been attacked and slain, Gueran is struck down as well. Despite the odds, he lives. Barely. Whisked away from the city for his safety, he struggles to recover from his injuries, learn his family's fate, and uncover the identity of those who want him dead. Far from Frosthelm, he becomes caught up in investigating another bloody attack, one that may or may not have been perpetrated by vengeful spirit of a woman wronged long ago, and one that threatens to expose him to his enemies. The locals are certain, though: the killer had to be the Woeling Lass, her hands cold as the grave and her feet aflame.

 

Back in Frosthelm, Urret Milton is an apprentice in some difficulty at the Guild. She receives a mysterious note for Gueran, a man everyone thinks is dead. Rapidly embroiled in the effort to unravel the reason for the killings and bring the assassins to justice, Urret struggles to shed her troubles and show that she has what it takes to be an inspector. But all this leads her into far more peril than she bargained for, for which she can't possibly be ready. Her position at the Guild, the security of the city, and her life itself are all at stake.

 

This tale from the Inquisitors' Guild of Frosthelm is a fresh mystery full of swordplay, deceit, ancient magic, scheming nobles, and a healthy dose of humor. Combining the clues and hidden mysteries of detective stories with all the grand adventure of epic fantasy, The Woeling Lass is a wondrous journey through betrayal, murder, ancient legend, loss, courage, and redemption. And, it has really silly chapter titles.

 

Each book from the Inquisitors' Guild series is a stand-alone mystery and a complete story. You can read them in any order. Dive into the treacherous streets of Frosthelm today, and make sure to bring your sword.

Why Odin Drinks

Bjørn Larssen

In the beginning, there was confusion. Then Gods created people. Confusion was better. Norse mythology won’t know what hit it.

Poor Odin only just started existing and already has a Universe to decorate, a smug Tree to ignore, and two competitive brothers who think they’d make better All-Fathers. His wife, who knows the future, won’t tell him a word because of his cheating, which he hasn’t even invented yet. Horrible things such as celery, mosquitoes, Loki’s dubious sense of humour, and people keep happening at him. The esteemed egg whisk and highly regarded feather duster? Not so much. There are only two sensible things Odin can do: 1) hang from the judgy Tree for nine days with a spear through his side and 2) drink from the Well of Wisdom, whose guardian, Sir Daddy Mímir, likes one-of-a-kind gifts. In his head, Odin’s idea seems wise… Perfect for fans of Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Jenny Lawson, and Calvin & Hobbes, Why Odin Drinks is suitable for readers aged 14+. The book features no graphic content, although some characters wish it would.

Claws and Contrivances

Stephanie Burgis

A madcap Regency-era romantic comedy for adults, involving a most determined heroine, a baffled scholarly hero, and a surprising number of dragons.

Passionate, idealistic Rose Tregarth may have been invited into her uncle’s remote home in the heart of Wales as an act of kindness to a poor relation, but it doesn’t take her long to realize that her newly-met family members are eccentric, creative, deeply lovable – and in need of all the help they can get. If the crumbling medieval walls of Gogodd Abbey aren’t to collapse around their heads at any moment, someone will have to step up and take charge of the situation. Fortunately for all of them, Rose has never lacked in determination. Add in more and more mysteriously appearing little dragons and a threatening new neighbor who could easily star as the villain in one of her aunt’s fabulous Gothic novels, and Rose is soon up to her ears in plots and schemes to save all the people and beasts she’s come to love…with the help of a sweet, baffled dragon scholar whom Rose has swept into a fake betrothal – for purely practical purposes, of course. With her fierce, loyal heart, Rose is more than ready to take care of everyone around her, dragons and humans alike. However, it may take an act of true magic to clear her eyes to the future – and the gentleman – she desires for herself. This is the second in a trilogy of standalone fantasy romances that can be read in any order.

One mother's memory is the key to the wasteland!

When Peace-in-the-Sky awakens as a captive with a young girl by her side, she only understands one thing: she must escape the tribe who captured her. A brutal head injury makes the past a swirling fog, so she is reliant on the girl—her precocious daughter Anissa—to guide them. She must return Anissa to the Tribes-under-the-Dome to keep her safe from warring and vicious tribes inhabiting the wasted landscape. Every group they shelter with along the way sees something different when they look at Peace-in-the-Sky—a god, a savior, a valuable commodity, a volatile danger. She doesn't know herself, but soon realizes she can protect Anissa with the scorching power of the pillars-of-flame. Only her tender love for Anissa and her mission to return the girl home to the Tribes-under-the-Dome matter. As her body grows weaker, not even the inexorable unraveling mystery of who, or what, Peace-in-the-Sky really is can deflect her from the task.

After seeing another girl her age save her village from a horrible monster, Lina realizes that life has a lot more to offer and embarks on a bloody journey of self-discovery.

Lina is a serving girl at a tavern, who thinks she is doomed to an uneventful life, until a horrible beast attacks her hometown. Such attacks are commonplace; humanity has been cursed by the gods since time immemorial, and bloodthirsty beasts prey on mankind virtually unpunished. Humanity's only line of defense are the Slayers: armed with divine magic, they are capable of fighting the beasts on equal ground, and are immune to the curse that turns men into monsters. That particular attack, however, upends Lina's life. Because it's not a Slayer who scares away the beast, but an ordinary girl. An outsider. That single discovery makes Lina question whether the life she has is the only possible one, and she embarks on a brief (but bloody) journey of self-discovery through a reality much more complicated than she could imagine.

Somehow, Princess Nuria knows Marani's whole life story, but Marani was only trying to rob her!

The dragons of Yuro have been hunted to extinction. On a small, isolated island, in a reclusive forest, lives bandit leader Marani and her brother Jacks. With their outlaw band they rob from the rich to feed themselves, raiding carriages and dodging the occasional vindictive pegasus. Thanks to Marani’s mysterious invulnerability, this mostly works out well…until Marani and her quirky band of outlaws plunder the carriage of the very bossy princess Nuria. The princess’s carriage contains not just gold, but a dragonscale comb that belonged to Marani’s murdered mother. Worse yet, Princess Nuria seems to know exactly who Marani is, maybe more than Marani herself. Marani hatches a plan to retrieve her mother’s comb, seduce the princess, and make her entire bandit crew rich in the process. But island politics and the island of Yuro itself have other things in mind. Marani and Jacks quickly find themselves caught between warring monarchies, trade disputes, feral pegasi, and a very old, very concerning family lineage—all bound within an old penny, a mouthy princess, and a stolen comb.

After he’s dragged back to the facility he escaped, a misanthropic empath is forced to find a serial killer who shouldn’t exist and falls for an officer with a strange power.

For an empath, "How do you feel?" is never just a question. Not when it can kill you. These are the rules: 1. Rare and powerful empaths never escape the compound. (Bastian Lucas escaped a year ago, and just because he’s been dragged back doesn’t mean he won't escape again.) 2. Compound officers don’t ask questions. (Captain Henry Mortimer has always followed orders, but Bastian’s arrival—and the disappearance of one of Henry’s team—have him wondering things he probably shouldn't be wondering.) When Major Valentine orders Bastian and Henry to investigate a series of murders committed by an asset with powers similar to Bastian’s, it brings to light more than just a cover up. Things like why an empath who shouldn't exist is killing senators, what’s really behind the compound’s sinister asset program, and whether Bastian and Henry will live to see the end of this case. Because they're in danger of breaking rule number three as well: 3. Don’t fall in love.

The good folk of Kottow aren’t used to magic. But magic will have its way with them, whether they will or no... a cosy fairytale about found family, wholeness, and hope.

‘You may have noticed,’ said Maut, ‘that the Tree is on the move.’ On the edge of the town of Kottow stands the tallest (and oddest) Tree in the land. It’s a staid and solid arbour — until the Tree picks up its mighty old roots and wanders off, taking its resident band of misfits away with it. Whither goes the Tree? Not even the wizard can say. 'There is something mighty fey about all this, or my name ain't Diggory Stokey.' Far away from Kottow, a forest lies lost in the mists of a dream. There’s much to mend in this hoary old wood, for the Summer’s been swept from the glittering skies, and no one’s keeping an eye on the Winter... 'Enchanted forests,' Mudleaf spat. 'Bah. Like it's been raining magic this long age through.' The good folk of Kottow aren’t used to so wayward a magic — not even Maut Fey, the one with the sunlight behind her eyes. But magic will have its way with them, whether they will or no. Summertide’s waiting. Can the folk of the Tree bring it back, or will the wild magic wash them away? “If you mixed elements of the Faraway Tree, Narnia, Frozen and A Midsummer Night’s Dream together, you might get something like Summertide.

It is an energy force that can bring about miracles or, as the alien fleet’s ruthless leader displays, unleash horrors beyond imagination. After experiencing a loss during the onslaught, Colton Samson, an ordinary college student, vows to protect his loved ones at any cost. But to learn the power to do so, he must enlist into the Army of the Universal Throne—a second alien force with its own agenda. With the revelation of a secret prophecy foretelling humanity’s demise and Colton’s improbable role in preventing it, he embarks alongside a diverse group of friends to the Throne’s capital, the planet of Vintara. There he faces prejudice from supposed allies, lifelike combat simulations that test him to his core, and the looming threat of a universal war. Only by embracing his true potential can Colton hope to secure the safety he seeks, in a universe that views him as nothing more than Forsaken.

The man introduces himself as Sangue and is willing to agree to a liaison despite Luke's illness. In fact, Sangue doesn't even seem worried that he might get it too, which probably means he already has it. Luke had almost decided that the thoughts he was having were entirely drug fueled, except the closer he gets to Sangue, the more of them he has. Then Sangue starts appearing in his dreams, but in those dreams, Luke is a different person. More than one different person, in fact.

Robert's Thursday changes when he finds a dead alien. Why do these things always seem to happen in small towns? Robert is swept into a mystery and a much larger journey.

Comfortable in his simple rural life, widower Robert Potter never put much stock in Old Jim's moonshine-fueled conspiracy theories. But after he finds Har'elday, the lone survivor of a crashed spaceship, he begins to wonder if the Loch Ness Monster has relocated to Eufaula Lake. Much to Robert's dismay, the wandering eye of the federal government is casting a questioning gaze on his small farm town as well. Caught between relentless federal agents and the found family harboring him, Har'elday's freedom depends on the ingenuity of his new friends. A Sci-Fi novella, Small Town Problems is the first book in a duology that explores the impact a lone survivor from an advanced alien civilization can have on a sleepy farm town in the middle of Oklahoma. Robert Potter gifts us with his insights as we traverse this world-shattering event through his eyes. A close group of friends helps Har'elday adjust to his new life as he finds solace in the comfort of a hard day's work on the farm. But, how long can such peace last? In what has been called a throwback to the golden age of science fiction, you can expect to find the heartwarming feeling of a found family, the awkwardness of a budding romance, and genuine and funny characters. We also explore the toll of loss and hardships that are compounded by the advances of a threat looming on the horizon.

Daniel and Sophia Fitzroy are worried that their son Tony is being bullied in his new school and is struggling to cope.

Amanah knows all-too-well the dangers of catching the attention of the upper class of Arruk. Using her position as a guard to steal secrets of healing and help other lower class people means she must remain unnoticed, working from the shadows. Fellow guard Taunos is boisterous, laughing, larger than life-and always around. He attracts attention as easily as breathing, which makes being associated with him dangerous. Better to stay far away, regardless of her attraction to him and his easy calm. But when Amanah inadvertently insults a magistrate, she must flee the city to avoid his vengeance. She takes a last-minute job escorting a pair of noblemen to another town-a job Taunos is also hired for. As she spends more time with Taunos, his confident charm draws her in, especially when he uncovers her dream of becoming a healer and offers to help make it a reality. Taunos sees her as no one else has, even when she's doing her best to be invisible. But opening herself to romance might be as dangerous as the wildlife and bandits they face in the wilderness. Yet as the end of her mission looms, she's not sure she can resist the draw of Taunos and of pursuing her dreams, even if it means drawing the ire of those in power.

With a CV like that, what's a girl to do when her captain betrays her, and she finds herself in need of new employment? Vanessa 'Mist' Northrup's options are limited, which would be a problem if she believed in limits. Offered a position as one of Captain Memory Black's infamous Corpsepickers – young women trained in the art of infiltration, and dispatched into the galaxy to hunt for easy marks and rich pickings – Mist can't accept fast enough. But why be one of anything when you can be the one? 

 

To win this glory, Mist must harpoon the biggest, fattest whale imaginable - the Phrixus, a ship like no other. Three hundred crew, and whatever the hell they’ve got brewing in the ship’s experimental labs, stand in her way. A mad, impossible heist. Exactly the kind of plan Mist can't resist. But Mist is not the only one with dreams of glory. The Phrixus is much more than just a ship; it is a crazy dream, piloted by a zealot who will either save his people or kill his crew in the attempt. Exactly the kind of plan Mist can't resist. So, to aid the Phrixus, or seize it?

 

That is the question - but dilemmas are for losers. Where's the glory in settling for one when you can try for both? It's all or nothing if Mist is to become the QUEEN OF THE CORPSEPICKERS.

In a divided world of magical entertainment, two mismatched colleagues work for a wily entertainer… and find lies, secrets, and a lot of banter.

In Flindering, the magic is mischievous… and entertainment is everything. Long after the island was closed to sightseers, "moonshine" entertainment is still restricted. People hide parts of themselves to avoid discrimination—although that kind of magic doesn't come cheap.

At first glance, Ten and Ginger are the unlikeliest people to work in the moonshine entertainment business.

But when they start working for a famous moonshiner, they're drawn into the sly schemes of Flindering's entertainment industry. They soon find themselves dealing with contrasting social hierarchies, eccentric publicity stunts, and a tangle of inconvenient secrets. Throughout it all, they must remember one thing—in Flindering, never trust a moonshiner. 

The Flindering trilogy follows the comedy-drama of mismatched colleagues becoming a found family in a world of magical entertainment. With a bit of romance and a lot of banter, these stories may appeal to fans of Zootopia, Ted Lasso, and the Discworld City Watch.

But not all is what it seems—soon, a discovery about his past and his heritage will flip Darven's world upside down.

A fae prince with cursed magic. A dragon shifter escaping her past. An arsonist they have to stop before it’s too late.

EVERWOOD FALLS… a small supernatural community tucked up in the Colorado Rockies where witches, werewolves and vampires can live without fear of discovery, and those with curses they can’t control are sent to keep the existence of magic from being revealed to Mundanes. As a prince of the fae High Court, Asher Heath has always been caught between two worlds—the kingdom of faerie where his fire magic is unparalleled and the human realm where he works as a firefighter. But two months ago, he lost control of a blaze his fae magic was supposed to contain, with tragic results. With his magic poisoned by a demon curse, he can’t risk getting close to anyone… including Gwyn, the fierce and beautiful dragon shifter he encounters out in a thunderstorm in the woods. But trouble has followed Asher to Everwood Falls. An arsonist is setting fires around town using demon magic to possess their victims—and their targets get bigger every time. Gwyneth Drake doesn’t need a prince to save her. She shifts into a twenty-foot fire-breathing dragon who can fight her own battles. A fierce advocate for the dragon community, she was forced into hiding when an ex tried to sear her dragon from the skies.

Breaker of Fates

Vaela Denarr & Micah Iannandrea

An undead dragon seeks to devour the gods, and the only ones capable of stopping him are two broken heroes and their secret dragon boyfriend.

Perilous quests give rise to heroes. And broken songs call for Chosen Ones to be mended. Roderick and Keeva, once friends, now orphaned by a dragon’s wrath that fractured the harmony between the great clans, spend their days locked in battle… until they are reunited, realizing that they’re both dating the same guy: Mateo, whose overdue transformation into a dragon is complicated by feelings of self doubt after the disastrous attempt to broker peace. Choosing to get along is one thing, but forgiving one another—or themselves—for the hurt they’ve inflicted is another. Keeva keeps seeing the face of her dead best friend in her dreams, and Roderick’s suspicion and distrust keep him up at night. Soon, though, a great threat unites them against a common foe. Someone has stolen a song from the gods, disrupting the tenuously rebuilt harmony of their homeland, and the very beast that tore them apart threatens to be set loose. True heroes of Koor Kosma are required to serve as vessels for the other four godly songs and reforge the divine harmony. Neither Roderick nor Keeva are such heroes, but unless they can unite the divine and broken songs, unless harmony brings the shattered clans together, all will burn. They are not chosen. They are not the heroes of this story. They are broken. And they must be forgiven. The Broken Song Duology is a story about queer grief, trauma, forgiveness and finding your place in the world.

Trillin isn’t technically a person. She’s a tiny breakaway piece of consciousness from the all-devouring Endless, doomed to eventually rejoin it. But when a human witch stumbles into her world, Trillin suddenly has a new reason to figure out individuality–one shape-shifting tentacle at a time. Sian is sure important magical discoveries are just around the corner, if she can just get her portals to work reliably. Reaching the dimension of the Endless without being eaten on sight is a dream come true, and Sian is determined to explore every bit of it. For science, of course, not for the strangely adorable life-form who keeps popping up and trying to… flirt? But Trillin’s world can be a dangerous place, and keeping Sian safe might risk drawing the attention of the Endless itself–which will swallow Trillin up along with all her dreams of humanity. Together, can this unlikely duo escape the Endless, figure out the optimum number of appendages, and maybe even find love?

Critically endangered selkies hide in plain sight amid climate refugees; a first responder, immersed in their tale, struggles to keep hidden the treasure of their existence.

Sometimes truth is stranger than folktales. Bilingualism and plate tectonics were the only kinds of shapeshifting Arden Araujo’s troubled geoscientist dad prepared her for. But it turns out, the outlandish prediction that wrecked his career–a devastating North Sea tsunami–might not be the unlikeliest truth he took to his grave. In the 2097 tsunami’s aftermath, environmental first responder Arden expects her mission in hard-hit northeast Scotland to involve the usual grunt work, maybe a little freediving if she’s lucky. Instead, she stumbles upon a critically endangered species of Orkney and Shetland legend, hiding in plain sight among the refugees. They trust that she can help restore their kind, despite storms, aftershocks, and policy decisions way beyond her pay grade. Increasingly at home on the shores of their life-giving sea, she may have found her calling; true love might not be a mere children’s story either. Yet the deeper she’s immersed in their tale, the less sure she feels that she’s the right hero to protect the hidden treasure of their existence.

Folks are being slaughtered in Fox Hollow amid a heated mayoral election. All signs point to the fabled Michigan Dogman but, perhaps, something far more sinister is to blame.

William “Bomber” Merridan is a small-town grocery store manager by day and a cryptid hunter by night. While Bigfoot is sexier, Bomber’s passion is for the legendary Michigan Dogman. Connie Hayes is Fox Hollow’s first-ever female Sheriff, not to mention the first Native American to hold the powerful position. Now, only months into her new role, she faces no shortage of obstacles from a town used to her patriarchal predecessor. Normally, these two would mix like oil and water, but when the town mayor is brutally killed, both Connie and Bomber set off to find who or what is behind the slaughter. Not everyone in Fox Hollow sees the mayor’s death as a tragedy, though, and in a rush to fill the mayor’s seat, two polarizing local politicians use fear of the Dogman to stoke tensions and turn the once peaceful community into a cauldron of hostility, distrust, and political tribalism. As Connie hunts the killer and Bomber hunts his weird, regionally-specific werewolf, they uncover the truth of Fox Hollow’s murky past, a century-old curse, and a sinister plot that could leave the town in ruins.

Indiana Jones meets Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Sometimes adventure knocks. Other times, it kicks the door in. "Dearest Alexandria and Ozymandias, If you are reading this, I have perished. My demise likely involved some manner of spiked pit or curiously fanged beast, so it’s doubtful I suffered long. Do not try to find me - the path is too perilous, and I am lost to the mortal plane." When Alex and Ozzie read their grandfather’s latest “death” letter, they barely blink. Dying six times in two years has to be a record, even for an explorer as incompetent as Sir Quidby Forsythe III. Faster than you can say “kidnapped by a giant, glowing lizard,” the Forsythe twins are dragged into a world of ancient prophecies, sarcastic swords of legend, mutant slime beasts, and a growing awareness their grandfather might be the greatest explorer in history.

Like its namesake, the wyverns that hunt from the mountains above, Wyverna is a city of predators. Its pirates sail out to plunder the wealth of nations, while at home the capital seethes, an uneasy amalgam of the old ways of its anarchic peoples and the newly imposed rule of law.

The rebels have obtained a mighty relic: an ancient copper golem created to be the ultimate assassin. Invulnerable and relentless, the golem destroyed the civilization that birthed it. If it kills the Warlord, Gorgo realizes his city too will fall, ripped apart by civil war. Armed with nothing but his wits and his courage, Gorgo sets out to find a way to save Wyverna.

What happens to a magic user when the magic starts using him? He doesn’t look it, but the Warlord-in-Chief of Gratha is so old, he’s forgotten the name his mother gave him. His mind is already cracking under the burden of the magic, but if the warlords knew, all Jersey would break loose. Even if he trusted his little apprentice with his secret (and his heart), there’s nothing Frieda could do to help him...there’s nothing anyone can do. For the good of Gratha, she must take over the magic when he’s gone, and that will be soon. Using Frieda is essential; loving her wasn’t part of the plan. Frieda didn’t ask to be in this position. Everyone else is scared stiff of the big, bad Warlord, but after years together, she’s becoming more his equal every day. She’s not disloyal; she’d never betray him. But she’s not going to let him keep her at arms’ length anymore...not when she finds out there’s more at stake than he’s let on. He knows more about magic than anyone alive, but he’s still clueless when it comes to love. Good thing his apprentice is ready to school him.

The Erstwhile Tyler Kyle

Steve Hugh Westenra

A cryptid-hunting YouTuber is lured to an isolated island by a fan-turned-stalker, where he may just find a link to his own past along with the monsters he swears aren't real.

Tyler Kyle doesn't believe in monsters.

 

A washed-up thirty-year-old actor and reluctant cryptid investigator, Tyler is used to playing the Scully to his best friend Josh's Mulder on their stupidly popular YouTube channel. But when Tyler receives previously unseen footage of the B movie bombshell mother who abandoned him eighteen years ago—footage linked to an isolated island in the Canadian wilderness—the mystery is one conspiracy he's determined to investigate. The fact that following the scent gives Tyler an excuse to run away from the "straight" Josh, whom he drunkenly made out with, is just the cherry on the shit sundae.

 

But Echo Island isn't what it seems. Somewhere amongst its pine-clad hills lurks the stalker whose footage lured him to the island in the first place, and behind its eerily scenic veneer hides a twisted secret buried in its roots as a gay conversion camp. As Tyler retraces his mother's footsteps, he discovers a supernatural connection the residents share with the island—one that calls to Tyler the same way it did his mother.

 

Face-to-face with the supernatural, he sure-as-shit wishes he hadn't gay-panicked and left the cryptid-obsessed Josh behind. Pursued by the stalker, searching for his mother, and debating whether it's possible to queerbait yourself, Tyler comes to realize that it doesn't matter so much whether you believe in monsters, if they believe in you. THE ERSTWHILE TYLER KYLE is an adult horror comedy for fans of GHOST FILES, BUZZFEED UNSOLVED, and TWIN PEAKS. Content warnings can be found at the back of the book, or on Steve Westenra's website.

The island nation of Ferranda is the jewel of the Acrarian Kingdom, and its Founder, Aritz a Mata, is revered as a god amongst men. But twenty-five years ago, Aritz was merely a man, a colonizer, an Invader seeking glory and fame in the name of his King and Queen, and Ferranda was a nameless union of indigenous Tribes, reverent of the heightened powers and aptitudes granted to them by their Animal Deities, but sundered by the foreigners claiming their lands to the south. In the unconquered north, the Stone Tribe has for fifteen years offered a safe haven for the southern Tribes displaced by Aritz's Invaders, whose occupying march north has been ostensibly halted by a dense forest barrier dividing north and south. Among the Stone people lives Sen, an outcast for the circumstances of her birth, preserved in society only by her status as daughter of her Tribe's Chief. Forever relegated to the fringes of society, she is forced to watch as countless of her kin, including her sister and brother, complete their rites of passage into adulthood and accordingly earn their aptitudes by the Deity to whom they share an affinity - the Bear, the Wolf, or the Owl. Despite this, Sen finds comfort in her life of forced solitude with her close inner circle, but hers is a comfort in days of waning tenuous peace. When Aritz's technologically-advanced forces push north, Sen is thrust into a singular quest to rescue one of her precious few captured in the ensuing struggle. While her goal is earnest - save someone dear to her and prove her worth to her Tribe - her people's goal is far more dire: survival in the face of uncertainty.

The Lost Sentinel

Emma L. Adams

A bookish loner must team up with a sarcastic staff, a warrior with no memory of his past, and an inept assassin to stop an army of angry gods from overrunning the world.

They say the country of Zeuten no longer has any need for heroes. Quests have been completed, the great Powers have withdrawn from the world, and the Sentinels who guard the last Relics are largely forgotten. Unlike their neighbours in the country of Aestin, whose Invokers wield the magic of the deities in exchange for glory and prestige, they leave the gods alone, and the gods extend the same courtesy to them. When Zeuten's last Sentinel disappears, Zelle, her granddaughter, intends to track her down. Instead she runs into an Aestinian stranger with no memories of his past, who claims to be looking for a long-lost Relic hidden in the mountains by the first Sentinels. To Zelle, the rumours of lost Relics are just stories told to trick gullible travellers, but the hordes of enemies on the stranger's tail suggest otherwise. Armed with nothing but her grandmother's sentient (and temperamental) magical staff, Zelle finds herself tasked with keeping them both alive. Between monstrous beasts, magical storms, and an enthusiastic but inept aspiring assassin and her dragon sidekick, Zelle has her work cut out if she wants to survive long enough to save her grandmother and prevent the destruction of a nation. Maybe Zeuten is in need of a few heroes after all…

Fear not the beasts in your stories — with a stout blade and a stouter heart, become the thing they fear. When her sleepy village is raided by the Vulkari, the fearsome warrior women of the Ancient Wilds, only Zyntael Fairwinter is taken. Claimed as a daughter by their infamous matriarch, Zyntael is trained to hunt, to fight, and to kill—all for a purpose, which remains ever out of her grasp. In the company of their unruly young, she might find sisterhood. In their unique customs and beliefs, she might find beauty. And in the violence of their raids, she might even find glory. But it is the reason for her capture that Zyntael truly seeks. It is a truth that must be earned from the very Spirits of the dead; a future paid for in the blood of those Zyntael once called her own. It is a purpose that promises the liberation of not just she, but of all the Ancient Wilds, from an evil far greater than any marauding warrior women. The Vulkari, however, are not like other women. The Vulkari are monsters. And sometimes, only the truly monstrous have what it takes to save the world. Steeped in Slavic Myth, Daughter of the Beast is a rich and unique fantasy coming-of-age story. It is the first in an exciting debut trilogy by E C Greaves, which blends gritty action and adventure with themes of belonging, identity, destiny, and a girl's place in a harsh and uncaring world—built for and by men.

Deep Roots

The elf and human realms are fragile pawns to the gods. The realms first fractured long ago, but their destruction may fall in half-elf Irving’s lifetime–and in their hands.

It’s the summer festival in the elvish kingdom of Cypress. A month of drama, debauchery, and devotion—and half-elf Irving is arrested on the first day.

Irving hopes to escape their sentence before their legendary prophet of a father finds out. Until an opportunity comes along: help a priestess smuggle sacred Cypress devices into the human realm, and earn their ticket out. Humans and elves are divided by distrust and violence thanks to the rivalry between their goddesses, but Irving knows they belong anywhere but Cypress.

The elf and human realms are mere fragile pieces in the games the gods play. Over the centuries, many elves have seen the start of Cypress’s fractures, but its destruction may fall in Irving’s lifetime–and in their hands.
