Title: The Dream Drinker

Author: JT Lawrence and MJ Kraus

Blurb: It sounds like the first line of a joke, but what Jax sees when she gets to Abarim Manor is as serious as a heart attack.

The butler’s employer, old wizard Blimaex Abarim, is being slowly tortured to death by contagious black magic, and she needs to stop the person responsible.

Jax’s sleuthing will lead her into jeopardy at every turn as she has to navigate the shifting terrain of the Realm, including dealing with treacherous orcs, magical apothecary coffin-dodgers, dark arts night markets, and the ever present evil in human hearts.

Add to the mix a rosé-swilling ghost in a gimp suit who refuses to leave the wizard detective alone, and Jax has more on her plate than a buffet dinner at The Copper Cog, Ferra’s steampunk pub for magical creatures.

To find and stop The Dream Drinker Jax will traverse the darkest, most dangerous parts of the Realm…

and just when she thinks it couldn’t possibly get any worse, the bloodthirsty vampires show up, and they want revenge.

Title: Bad Intention

Author: David Bussel & M.V. Stott

Blurb: It doesn’t matter whether you’re a diabolical demon, a wicked witch, or a vicious vampire, if Erin Banks has you in her sights, you’d better start running.

At least, that’s the way things worked before some lunatic abducted her cousin.

When Lana is stolen away in the middle of the night, it’s Erin’s turn to start running. To rescue the only family she has, the one lingering thread that connects her to the everyday world. Without Lana, all Erin has left are monsters and murder, and she’s not about to let that happen.

To rescue her cousin, Erin must embark on a grim scavenger hunt, scooping up clues all over town. Miss one checkpoint and Lana’s kidnapper guarantees his victim an extremely violent end.

Can Erin win the mystery abductor’s wicked game? Because if she can’t, it won’t just be her cousin she loses. She’ll lose herself.

Title: Spring’s Calling

Author: Sarah Biglow

Blurb: Boston Police Detective Ezri Trenton wants nothing more than to do her job…and solve her mother’s murder. Faces from a past she had forsaken and an imminent dark power that only she can stop, however, push Ezri to rethink her self-imposed isolation.

From childhood, she was told she—and only she—was the prophetic Savior of the magical community. Now, just days before the Vernal Equinox, a time of balance between light and dark magic, the Order of Samael works ceaselessly in an effort to conjure ancient Druidic demons. Life as we know it is threatened and the time for the Savior has come.

Adding to her problems, Detective Ezri chases a phantom serial killer whose identity baffles the force. Can she stop him without revealing her magical secret, and what will solving this case reveal about her mother’s murderer?

As the clock ticks ever closer to the Equinox, Ezri Trenton must risk everything to become who she is and has always been. The Savior.
