Title: The HighFire Crown
Author: JT Lawrence and MJ Kraus
Blurb: Jacquelyn Denna Knight is the best wizard detective in the city. She also has the worst luck.
Her vile orc landlord is about to evict her from her haunted apartment, and she just choked on the job that was going to pay her rent. She hates that she let the money get away from her, but the satin-skirted vampire that escaped out the bordello window worries her more.
When one of the most influential elves in the Realm calls her at midnight to hire her for a job, it’s an offer she can’t refuse.
What she doesn’t know is that the new case is going to unravel her life, and she’ll get tangled up with a host of intriguing characters, most of whom are not who they appear to be. It’s also going to speed her down a path toward the most powerful vampire clan in the country, where she’ll have to put everything on the line to save the Realm.
Title: Taker of Spells
Author: SA Magnusson
Blurb: The Veil was meant to protect the world from people like me.
My life is simple. Collect magical items on behalf of a man who knows my secret or have it revealed to the fae. Seeing as how I’m a halfbreed, once they find me, they’ll bond and enslave me. The jobs are dangerous, often forcing me to cross the Veil, a separation between my world and that of terrifying magical creatures, but if I keep my freedom, it’s worth the risk.
When I’m betrayed and a dangerously gorgeous fae royal named Adam demands my help finding a magical artifact, how can I refuse? He knows my secret, and if I succeed, the reward is my freedom.
The only problem is I’m not the only one after it. Other deadly powers have crossed the Veil wanting the same artifact. And if I don’t get to it first, a fate worse than death awaits me.
Title: Reaper of Earth
Author: Jen L. Grey
Blurb: Hidden abilities, haunting memories, and one confused girl.
I’m a reaper. Death should come naturally to me, but it doesn’t. And the abilities I am able to conjure are forbidden by my kind. My parents try to hide my abilities, but when the elders assign my first target, they order my parents to stay back.
Now I’m on my own, with no one to protect me, no idea what I’m doing, and no control over the powers I’m supposed to keep hidden.
I should have known this would blow up in my face.
My family name is ruined, and I have to fix what I’ve ripped. I’m not sure I have what it takes. The fate of my entire kind is on my shoulders, and I’m the only one who can make things right. But if I mess up again, it won’t just be my family that I break–our entire world will be ruined.
Title: Demon Shadow
Author: Tori Centanni
Blurb: After defeating an evil demon-worshipping witch, I’ve managed to convince the Council that I’m on their side…for now. I’m happy to go back to business as usual. Unfortunately, the universe has other plans.
When I’m hired to find out why a guy who went missing came back different, I soon discover the evil witch has cohorts who are carrying on his mission without him. And to stop them, I’m forced to keep working with the very handsome but Council-loyal demon hunter Conor Ramsey.
The more power this demon cult attains, the more dangerous they become, and the more I have to use my own demon powers to stop them, which is getting riskier by the second.
Conor is getting suspicious but I’ll do whatever I have to do to get us out of this alive.
