I used to be a hero. Then I grew up.
I’m Kieran Thorne, the world’s only living half-fae. The gig comes with a few perks—immortality, magic I can’t control, fae assassins constantly on my heels. And the chance to protect the good and the powerless against those who are neither.
For hundreds of years, that’s what I did. Until I got tired of the humans I saved repaying me by burning me at the stake or shooting me in the heart. I traded in my white hat for a mansion on the beach, and started living by a new creed: look out for myself, and let the humans solve their own problems.
But now Winter fae are going missing, and someone has planted a trail of evidence leading right to my door. I have two choices: let Queen Mab’s feral enforcer carve me to bits, or help her find the real culprit.
Looks like I’m back in the hero business. But this time, I’ll remember the lesson it cost me so much to learn:
There are no good people in this world, and no righteous causes. Humanity is corrupt. The fae are cruel and vicious. Me? I’m a little of both.
Even shapeshifters have something to fear.
A moonlit stroll introduces Liam to a terrifying new world.
While defending his dog, he gets bitten by a vicious predator. Soon, Liam burns with fever, and the animals at his vet clinic start acting oddly around him. He sees creatures that howl in the night, and thinks he’s losing his mind. Are they wolves? Or something else?
Liam’s search for the answer leads him to the beautiful Chloe. When she reveals Liam is infected with a virus that will turn him into a savage beast or kill him in the process, his life spins out of control. And just as he gets a grip on his uncertain future, his new shapeshifter friends begin behaving strangely.

It's all very well and good destroying the world, extinguishing any spark of hope, and ruling with an iron grip of fear and black magic. But nobody told the witch that running an administration of evil would be just so… dreary. Bored with solving little people's problems and the petty squabbles of her beastly advisors, the witch quits, leaving the world in a much worse state than she found it with a new evil quest. It's time to learn how to be a good person.
There's just one teensy-tiny little problem… Being good doesn't come easily – after all, it's much easier to sacrifice babies and summon hideous demons to get things done. Seeking out her old nemesis, a legendary-hero-turned-academic (who she only imprisoned and tortured a little bit), she gives him an outlandish proposition: to help her make a dazzling transformation from wicked witch to good. It's an offer he can't refuse. The odd couple have a long, perilous journey ahead of them and a lot of psychological hang-ups to work through.
Can an evil witch ever truly be reformed – and what could possibly go wrong when you're relying on your nemesis to be your BFF?

Caspian is looking for his mother. Snatched from the beach as a child and raised as a half-breed Mer-Prince in the long-lost city of Atlantis, his turn to rule is coming fast. Caspian learns that the Mer in Oceania have found a method to visit land—a practice forbidden in Atlantis—and later return to the sea. Unfortunately, the “magic” method involves poison so potent that only half-breeds with undamaged lungs can survive it. When his Sea King father forces Caspian’s engagement to a mermaid he can’t stand, Caspian decides it’s time to go in search of his human roots, and the woman who gave him life.

The innocent meeting turns into an unbreakable bond, and sets off a chain of events that leaves them both questioning their place in the world—be it land or sea—and discovering just how essential love and family can be.

In the fires of World War II, a child must save his people from darkness…
Ten-year-old Uriel has always been an outcast. Born mute in a Jewish village known for its choir, he escapes into old stories of his people, stories of angels and monsters. But when the fires of the Holocaust consume his village, he learns that the stories he writes in his golden notebook are terrifyingly real.
In the aftermath of the attack, Uriel is taken in by Uwe, a kind-hearted linguist forced to work for the commander of the local Nazi Police, the affably brutal Major Brandt. Uwe wants to keep Uriel safe, but Uriel cant stay hidden. The angels of his tales have come to him with a dire message: Michael, guardian angel of the Jewish people, is missing. Without their angel, the Jewish people are doomed, and Michaels angelic brethren cannot search for him in the lands corrupted by Nazi evil.
With the lives of millions at stake, Uriel must find Michael and free him from the clutches of the Angel of Death...even if that means putting Uwe in mortal danger.
The Book of Uriel is a heartbreaking blend of historical fiction and Jewish folklore that will enthrall fans of The Book Thief and The World That We Knew.

"The Earth died in less than a minute. Maybe that's an exaggeration. It's not like the planet ceased to exist altogether. It just seemed like it. Cities were reduced to rubble.
