Ryld's Shadows

release date: Mar 08, 2022
Ryld's Shadows
FROM POPULAR AUTHORS OF LGBTQIA ROMANCE ANGEL MARTINEZ AND BELLORA QUINN Book four in the AURA series Ryld must learn to control his dangerous shadows before they kill someone he cares about or someone unscrupulous learns how to control him. AURA's offices have been quiet since the mage tower incident—as quiet as they can be for an agency dedicated to policing holes in reality—and the department heads have been free to turn their attention back to mundane matters. The return to quiet bureaucracy gives AURA's Director of Research, Kai Hiltas, the time to turn his energy to a new issue—a young drow with unusual and dangerous powers named Ryld. Though his shadows always lurk at the edges of his vision, Ryld does his best to live peacefully and not let them hurt anyone. He has his work, his apartment and a succession of minders assigned by AURA who are, ostensibly, there to keep him safe in his new world and to prevent him from causing any scenes with his shadows. Most of the time, the arrangement works. But one disastrous incident causes Ryld's minder to leave him unattended and lost—the precise thing he was hired to prevent. To replace the faithless minder, Kai suggests Hank, a half-goblin accountant recently in the middle of a string of terrible luck, while Kai works out how best to get Ryld the magical training he so desperately needs. For his part, Hank truly likes Ryld and insists he would be happier working as Ryld's companion rather than as a controlling minder. As Hank and Ryld slowly come to terms with sharing space—and eventually more—Kai's search for a teacher for Ryld takes them out west on the invitation of the Elvenhome's aelfe queen and right into the lap of inter-elven feuds, ancient prejudice, conspiracies and trafficking rings. What should have been a pleasant visit soon turns into more than even forever-scheming Kai can handle.

The Anti-Quest

release date: Mar 30, 2021
The Anti-Quest
Brave paladin. Royal princess. Fierce dragon. Simple. Bring all three at once? Way too complicated. Paladin Snillek's mother was human and ruled a planet. That's about the extent of her knowledge since they didn't see each other much. When her mom dies in a freak accident, her father tells Snillek she's inherited the title, and she has to learn how to pass as the mostly human Princess Siel for a planet she never thought about much. The dresses alone are horrifying and the courtiers aggravating. In a moment of frustrated rage, Snillek's princess persona slips and frightened palace staff misinterpret what they see. Now Paladin Snillek has been called upon to rescue Princess Siel...from herself. Gruyere wants desperately to journey into the wilds of Tarribotia, but it's too dangerous to go alone and so far, everyone's laughed at her for suggesting it. When she spots a Dzedek paladin sulking in a tavern, she offers her services, hoping to pass herself off as a rogue guide. Two women with secrets and possibly opposing goals head out into the hinterlands of a planet neither one of them knows well. They might both make it back by Winterfest if nothing eats them first. This book contains one out-of-her-element paladin, the perils of academia, deadly cake, and unconventional dragons.

Geoffrey the Very Strange

release date: Mar 01, 2021
Geoffrey the Very Strange
An outcast necromancer and a half-demon clerk need to save the world from seashell zombies. No pressure. Everyone's always told Aspic that trouble can't help following him because of his heritage. Determined to put the lie to half-demon stereotypes, he's finally landed a good, quiet job as an herbalist's clerk where the owner trusts him to man the shop alone. What could go wrong selling coriander and thyme? When Geoffrey first enters the shop, Aspic finds the little man's eccentric appearance startling, then intriguing. Geoffrey explains, in stops and starts, that he is a theoretical necromancer researching replacements for blood magic. His current line of inquiry involves seashells-do they have any in stock? Aspic's co-workers warn him that Geoffrey is a walking disaster, but he finds himself more and more drawn to a necromancer concerned with ethical death magic. Aspic is with Geoffrey in his lab when he has his first success, but the results aren't at all what he was aiming for. Instead of raising the dead rabbit on his table, the ritual animates the seashell and rock spell components, which flee the lab and cause havoc. They soon discover that the spell-animated objects are "zombies" in that they can "infect" other inanimate things. An unorthodox necromancer and an exasperated shop clerk are going to need some unconventional help to find a working de-animation spell before the world is overrun by zombie seashells and stones gone mad. Geoffrey the Very Strange is part of the Magic Emporium series. Each book stands alone, but each one features an appearance by Marden's Magic Emporium, a shop that can appear anywhere, but only once and only when someone's in dire need. This book contains theoretical necromancy, unexpected spell outcomes, some extraordinarily angry seashells, and a guaranteed HEA.

A broken pilot falls for a man who might be a walking weapon. They may need to save far more than each other. A mysterious distress call draws the crew of the Hermes to what appears to be an empty, drifting ship. Empty, except for the gore-spattered corridors and one survivor locked in a holding cell. Drawn to the traumatized man, the crew's comm officer, Isaac Ozawa, makes Turk his responsibility, offering him kindness and warmth after the horror he experienced. Turk longs for Isaac, a desperate, hopeless ache he'll always carry with him. But Turk's brain harbors dangerous secrets, a military experiment gone wrong. When an amoral, power-hungry admiral kidnaps Isaac to convince Turk to become the weapon he's hungered for, it will take Turk's strength, the Hermes crew's ingenuity, the enigmatic Drak'tar's help, and Isaac's own stubborn will to save them.

By Imperial Decree
An Imperial prince can only hide for so long-but his solution of a hastily invented engagement could backfire spectacularly. Marsh Kensinger's work as the utility mechanic for Bremen Station keeps his life interesting - but never quite as interesting as finding a pilot still hidden inside a hibernation drawer in what should have been a salvage craft. He knows he shouldn't get involved, but the Altairian Imperial crest on the private craft and the semi-conscious pilot's odd questions pique his always-whirling curiosity. Still unattached at a concerning age for an imperial son, Prince Shiro Shinohara hadn't been running from the endless, mind-numbing rounds of omiai his mother, the Empress, had mandated. Not exactly. He'd just wanted a break from persistent suitors at the family retreat on Ceti Tau. The short respite becomes a panicked flight for his life when one of the suitors stalking him attacks the family compound. Worried for the soldiers he was forced to leave behind, afraid there's a conspiracy to kidnap him, Shiro confides in the handsome mechanic who found him and in a moment of panic, concocts the fiction of a serious relationship with Marsh. It's only until Shiro's people can reach him and he can press charges back home. Marsh is willing to play along and Shiro's just going to have to keep himself together and not, under any circumstances, fall for the wonderful, generous man who refuses to stop helping him.

Sissal Naganos, cobra yervath and diplomat banished to the hinterlands, didn't ask for an assistant, and he certainly didn't ask for such an annoying one. Being an OIL (Onsite Inter-species Liaison) for the Interplanetary Multispecies Pact has never been an easy job. In fact it's a crap job when stuck on a backwater nowhere planet like Earth. But cobra Yervath Sissal Naganos manages. The demotion was swift and heavy-handed, but he'll climb back out of this hell eventually. Humans don't meet his social needs, so, yes, it's been lonely and he tells himself he likes the solitude. That is, until IMP sends him an irritating new assistant he never asked for. Now his peace is well and truly disturbed and his paranoid diplomatic reflexes have reawakened. The worst part is the kid didn't have to be so cute.

Fireworks and Stolen Kisses
No. Eating. Pixies. At the annual Global Lijun Alliance conference in Tokyo, Tally Bastille makes the first impulsive decision of his life. Others perceive his uktena—the enormous legendary serpent that's his dual-spirit—as a threat, which makes him all too aware that he frightens fellow lijun. But an encounter with a passionate, obviously not-straight otter lijun one evening convinces Tally that he's found his Em'halafi, his destined match. Tally is determined to barrel through all obstacles to make the match happen, including the otter's conservative, traditional family. Trained as a Satislit—a bride-son—Haru Tanaka chafes at the strict boundaries set around their life. They rebel against their clan's constant attempts to force an arranged match and wish desperately for someone who will love them. At the conference, Haru is horrified to learn their family has accepted an offer for them, one too lucrative for the clan to refuse. Not only has the Urusar sold Haru to a stranger, but the lijun is also a giant snake and one who believes in the tired old superstitions regarding Em'halafi. Threatened with banishment if they refuse, Haru has no choice but to marry the wealthy American serpent. Back in Tally's home in Wisconsin, Haru and Tally must navigate both the widening gulf between them as they realize how much they've misunderstood about each other, and the tricky politics of the lijun clan Tally leads. Murder, intrigue and increasing hostility threaten to tear apart the little town of Wadiswan and the arranged marriage they've barely managed to begin.

There are circumstances Tally doesn't understand yet, and Haru struggles to find their feet with an Urusar who doesn't know the rules.

In an environment where it's vital to know ally from foe, Tally and Haru need to stand united or watch the community Tally's family has built fall under the thumb of heartless, greedy autocrats.

Immediacy
A New Jersey native born in 1973, Miguel Angel first became aware of paintings during a school field trip to a New York City art museum. This set off a passion for drawing and color. Miguel Angel's work is comprised of a diverse arrangement and media to create an original and aggressively unique artistic voice. While experimenting with past representations of objects such as still life, figurative and sculpture, his practice merges abstraction, figuration, color and painting. Angel's influences are found in African art/culture as well as the artistic giants such as Picasso, Matisse, Basquiat, Lupertz and Velazquez. Jazz and hip-hop has also played an integral part in Angel's expressionistic and improvisational style. The combination of which bring about an array of styles and vivid colors, luring depictions of masked figures, splatters of piled on paint, ubiquitous under-drawings and endless findings of expressive urgency which bear his emphatic signature and freedom.

Tobys wilde Magie ist tödlich. Die Magier-Gilden haben ihn aufgegeben und es ist nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis sein Leben mit einem spektakulären, katastrophalen Knall enden wird. Seine einzige Hoffnung ist ein verbannter Zauberer, der zurückgezogen im Exil lebt - und Gerüchten zufolge den Verstand verloren haben soll. Die einsamen Jahre in seinem Haus auf dem Berg waren nicht gut für Darius Valstad. Entstellt durch einen Magieunfall, bei dem Pittsburgh fast untergegangen wäre, treibt er durch seine Tage wie ein Gespenst, gefangen in Erinnerungen und Depression. Bis ein entkräfteter junger Mann in seiner Einfahrt zusammenbricht, einer, der behauptet, Darius sei seine letzte Chance. Zum ersten Mal seit fünfzehn Jahren muss Darius eine Wahl treffen. Soll er diesen Wildmagier seinem Schicksal überlassen oder ihn bei sich aufnehmen und versuchen, ihn zu unterrichten - was sie beide das Leben kosten könnte? Der alte Darius, ungestüm und draufgängerisch, hätte nicht gezögert. Darius, der Verbannte, weiß nicht, ob er die Energie aufbringen kann, es zu versuchen.
