Chaos (6 Book Series)
From Book 1: A novel inspired by the short story collection, One Night with the Fae. Soul is the first in a brand new series by Claire Farrell.

Cara Kelly’s life is going nowhere when she’s lured to a faery festival. There she sees darkness and magic, madness and lust, and she comes out the other side with new eyes and an addiction to the fae.

When the faery who saved her life returns to her, Cara knows there’s something wrong. Two souls exist in one body, and both need her, but to help one, she’ll end the life of the other. At first, her mind is made up, but both souls know how to charm her.

As the days pass, it becomes clear that the faeries need a leader, and Cara finds herself sucked into a world where morals don’t exist. The truth of her past is hidden in the magic, but all Cara needs to do is survive the king’s coronation, then the fae will let her go forever.

But that’s not what she wants anymore, and it’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference between a king and a half-blooded solitary fae. Cara’s losing her way, and her heart, to the fae, but there’s still her life, and her humanity, left to lose.

One Crown & Two Thrones (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: BOOK ONE OF
ONE CROWN & TWO THRONES

‘Richly Dark, Spellbindingly Epic and Utterly Absorbing! Book one of the new fantasy series will leave you breathless and hungry for more! Never has the war between what is good and bad been more prevalent!’

Under the tree of life shall they come, sipping from the fountain of time, binding themselves to one another, forevermore. Together they shall become one and one shall overcome all that stands in the way of the light…

Taken from the arms of her dying parents and Unas, the world into which she was born, Celestine is transported through time to the small town of Keswick, and placed under the protection of Estelle and given the name Eveline. Unbeknown to the small babe, the universe under the rule of the great God Heiden is falling apart as the dark lord Lagar and his legion of followers cast a terrible shadow over all that is true and good. With a prophecy so potent and dangerous cloaked over the infant babe, Lagar’s eyes fall upon the planet of Earth, seeking Heiden’s last surviving heir in an attempt to kill her before the prophecy can be initiated.

1940

Sheltered within the confines of Keswick away from those who label her a witch for her peculiar golden eyes and magical abilities, Eveline believes herself safe, the dark clouds of the Second World War looming over the West, but the searching eyes of her enemies have now sought the young Eveline out and the young orphan now finds herself embroiled in an ancient war. With her guardian husband now a serving RAF pilot, Eveline is without protection and is now vulnerable to the creatures of darkness now headed in her direction.

Yet the destinies of Eveline and the Prince who brought her to earth all those years ago are about to collide as the prophecy foretold…

Exiled from Heaven for avenging the deaths of his wife and daughter at the hands of Lagar, Galean, an angel by descent and prince by blood forgoes his duties upon Unas and returns to Earth, secretly ordered to retrieve Celestine and bring her home to Unas, unaware of the prophecy that binds him to the young Queen. Together they must overcome the powers of darkness that threaten to tear them apart, casting aside their inner demons to make way for Eveline, so that she may take up her throne and claim her crown, fulfilling the long held prophecy in order that she be reunited with her world and her people.

Ava Delaney- Lost Souls (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: ~Best read after the original Ava Delaney series~

The backdrop may be grim, but Dublin city has become the centre of change. And as the humans and supernaturals figure out how to live in each other’s worlds, the person who forced that change has quietly stepped aside for a peaceful life.

Ava Delaney is still trying to adjust to her own altered existence when a tainted nephal turns up on her doorstep, apparently on the run from the monster who changed Ava’s life before she was even born. But she’s not supposed to interfere, even for the lost souls she’s vowed to help.

But as the first vampire leaves death in his wake, and Ava becomes an easy target to blame, she realises she has to take care of business once again. There are more secrets hidden in the shadows, more voices just waiting to be heard, and obedience has never been Ava’s thing.

Only one thing is for certain: for people like Ava Delaney, there’s no such thing as a peaceful life.

Lightning Blade (The Ruby Callaway Trilogy Book 1)
For fans of Kate Daniels and The Dresden Files comes a new breed of urban fantasy heroine.
One who might not survive an endless day.


When the FBI releases supernatural bounty hunter Ruby Callaway after 20 years, the terms are simple: put down the necromancer killing public officials in return for amnesty. But then the necromancer plunges a blade through her heart, and Ruby reawakens at midnight, back in jail. Alive.

Which means one thing: the necromancer has thrust the world into an endless time loop that only he and Ruby can see. And Ruby is the only one capable of stopping him before the world burns. But as she unravels the necromancer's sinister plan, two questions repeat in Ruby's mind: Just how dangerous is a vengeful serial killer with nothing but time?

And what if the necromancer isn't the worst thing lurking in the shadows of this brave new world?

Lightning Blade is the first book in the Ruby Callaway Trilogy, mixing dark, gritty urban fantasy with a sprinkling of futuristic sci-fi & cyberpunk. Not your typical bounty hunter. Not your typical urban fantasy.

Fire & Ice (Icefire Trilogy Book 1)
Where magic is dark and gritty, characters troubled and twisted, and victory comes at a heavy price.

Deep under the City of Glass in the frozen southern land, an age-old machine called the Heart of the City radiates a power which locals call icefire. Most citizens are immune to it, but a few, always born with physical disabilities, can bend it to their will. For fifty years, the ruling Eagle Knights, who fly on the back of giant birds, have killed these Imperfects, fearing the return of the old royal family, who used icefire to cut out people's hearts, turning them into ghostly servitors. 

The old king's grandson Tandor only sees the good things icefire brought: power and technology now forgotten while the people of the south live in dire poverty. He's had enough of seeing his fellow kinsfolk slaughtered by ignorant Knights, of Imperfect babies being abandoned on the ice floes to be eaten by wild animals. His grandfather's diary tells him how to increase the beat of the Heart the first step to making the land glorious once more. Arrogant as he is, he sets the machine in motion. All he needs is an army of Imperfect servitors to control the resulting power.
Isandor is Imperfect, an ex-Knight apprentice, betrayed by his best friend and running for his life. 

The queen Jevaithi is Imperfect, living like a prisoner amidst leering Knights, surviving only because the common people would rebel if their beloved queen were harmed. 

Both are young and desperate and should be grateful that Tandor wants to rescue them from their hopeless situations. Or so he thinks. The youngsters, however, have no inclination to become heartless ghosts, but while they defy Tandor, the Heart beats, and he alone cannot control its power.

This will appeal to readers of Joe Abercrombie and George R.R. Martin.

Dragonlands, Books 1 - 3: Hidden, Hunted, and Retribution
USA Today Best-seller!

Enter the world of Dragonlands with the first three novels from this bestselling epic fantasy series.

Includes:

Hidden:
The mystery enshrouding Hutton’s Bridge is as impenetrable as the fog that descended at its borders eighty years ago. Each year, three villagers enter the mist searching for answers. No one ever returns.

Then a dragon falls from the sky to the town square, dead—the first glimpse of an outside world that has become nothing more than a fairy tale to Hutton’s Bridge. Except to Tressa.

Tressa grew up with Granna’s stories of the days before the fog fell. When Granna dies, leaving Tressa without any family, Tressa ventures into the fog herself, vowing to unravel the foul magic holding Hutton’s Bridge captive.

What she discovers beyond the fog endangers the lives of everyone she loves.

Hunted:
The fog that trapped the people of Hutton's Bridge for eighty years has disappeared, but now so have the villagers.

Fearing the worst, Tressa and Bastian must navigate a new and dangerous world in search of their people. Among their allies are a healer, a warrior, and even a dragon--but their enemies are far greater.

Hutton's Bridge has long protected a powerful secret, one the dragonlords will kill to control. As the realms rise, Tressa and Bastian risk everything to save their people, until one must make the ultimate sacrifice.

Retribution:
Tensions are mounting in the Dragonlands. The dragon hordes are mustering, each with its own agenda. But Tressa must conquer her personal demons before answering the call to war.

Gravely ill, her body undergoing mysterious and frightening changes, she travels to a distant land for the answers crucial to her survival. What she discovers rocks her to the core.

As the battle begins, a long-slumbering magic--dark, powerful, and brutal--awakens. And Tressa learns the ones you love most can become your greatest enemies of all.

Brolach (#1): Dark Paranormal Vampire MFM Romance (The Demon Series)
For fans of The Black Dagger Brotherhood , 50 Shades, and Twilight, comes a controversial adult tale of alpha vampire warriors who do not sparkle, claiming what is theirs for the survival of their species.

From the New York Times bestselling author of A Terrible Love, comes a spin-off serial from a #1 Amazon Erotic Horror Bestselling series.

Praise for BROLACH:
" ...While awaiting other books to this series and the originals to these spin offs I attempted to find other Authors of this caliber and have failed! No other authors I have found have brought out as much heat as Eros does.. I literally have to fan myself while reading her work..." - inkleintoodo

BLURB:
Ruby is an exotic dancer with a past. Running from a father who is a murderer, she takes to the sea where she lives the quiet and lonely existence of the unseen.

One night when her abusive boss lays more than a finger on her, the crowd gets out of hand and an unlikely savior moves to end her misery.

Little does Ruby know that there are those who've been searching for exactly what she is.

Brolach is a demon warrior with a purpose: to find females with enough demon blood who could be valuable breeders in Hades. Their inclusion would tip the scales in favor of the age old war between heaven and hell, to those who live below.

What Brolach doesn't realize is they share a blood tie that neither suspect, one that might make them pay in blood.

Please note: this book is dark paranormal romance and deals with serious themes 18+ audience. In addition, though this is the first installment in The Demon Series, reading both The Druid and Siren Series first, might deepen the reading experience.
