Title: Forgotten Ghosts

Author: Eric Asher

Blurb: I shouldn’t have told myself things couldn’t get any worse. They did.

As Nixie struggles to unite the water witches, the Fae king discovers a spy in his ranks. We’re forced to split our focus and our powers between the unrest in Faerie and the rising tensions in Falias. When Nudd’s latest gambit puts humanity’s most dangerous weapons into his hands, we can’t let anything stand in our way. We’ll need help from new contacts and trusted allies if we hope to stop the Fae king’s madness.

But the award for worst timing in history goes to an old friend: Vicky.


Title: Minimum Wage Magic

Author: Rachel Aaron

Blurb: The DFZ, the metropolis formerly known as Detroit, is the world’s most magical city with a population of nine million and zero public safety laws. That’s a lot of mages, cybernetically enhanced chrome heads, and mythical beasties who die, get into debt, and otherwise fail to pay their rent. When they can’t pay their bills, their stuff gets sold to the highest bidder to cover the tab.

That’s when they call me. My name is Opal Yong-ae, and I’m a Cleaner: a freelance mage with an art history degree who’s employed by the DFZ to sort through the mountains of magical junk people leave behind. It’s not a pretty job, or a safe one–there’s a reason I wear bite-proof gloves–but when you’re deep in debt in a city where gods are real, dragons are traffic hazards, and buildings move around on their own, you don’t get to be picky about where your money comes from. You just have to make it work, even when the only thing of value in your latest repossessed apartment is the dead body of the mage who used to live there.


Title: Court of Night

Author: C.N. Crawford

Blurb: As a Knight of the Shadow Fae, I’m tasked with defending the Institute. I’m deep into a world of dark magic, orgiastic death cults, and demon roller discos.

But my new life begins with an impossible choice: turn over Ruadan within twenty-four hours, or my nemesis will unleash the Black Death.

Worse, my old gladiator master is threatening to reveal my identity. If the truth gets out, I’ll be out of the Institute faster than you can say “wrath of an incubus.”

If I can’t find and kill my oldest enemy in time, then it’s the Black Death for everyone, and I’ll be back on the run once more.


Title: Outwit

Author: Annabel Chase

Blurb: I’m a Third Year now at Spellslingers Academy of Magic and my professors worry that I’m not meeting my full potential–that I’m holding back–so I know I’ve got to prove myself. I’ll do anything to keep my place as an Enforcer of the East. It’s important that I go as far away as possible, not that I can ever admit the reason why. When I stumble upon a dozen bodies during a weekend field trip, though, the world comes to a screeching halt. Thanks to bad timing, I end up stuck in the company of a frustrating yet sexy werewolf called Callan, a member of the League of Local Paranormals. Together, we need to endure each other’s company and bring a murderer to justice.

Can I stop a mass murderer before he strikes again or will my past be my unraveling?


Title: Lies Sleeping

Author: Ben Aaronovitch

Blurb: The Faceless Man, wanted for multiple counts of murder, fraud, and crimes against humanity, has been unmasked and is on the run. Peter Grant, Detective Constable and apprentice wizard, now plays a key role in an unprecedented joint operation to bring him to justice.

But even as the unwieldy might of the Metropolitan Police bears down on its foe, Peter uncovers clues that the Faceless Man, far from being finished, is executing the final stages of a long term plan. A plan that has its roots in London’s two thousand bloody years of history, and could literally bring the city to its knees.

To save his beloved city Peter’s going to need help from his former best friend and colleague–Lesley May–who brutally betrayed him and everything he thought she believed in. And, far worse, he might even have to come to terms with the malevolent supernatural killer and agent of chaos known as Mr Punch….
