Introducing King of Ash and Bone

I'm thrilled to bring you a first look at King of Ash and Bone, book one in the Shattered Realms series.

When monsters break through the veil separating their worlds, Mackenzie Scott has nothing left to lose. Her brother is marked, her future has vanished, and all that remains is a desperate need for revenge. After discovering the breach the monsters used as a gateway, Mackenzie devises a plan to stop them, whatever the cost. It isn't exactly luck when she finds an injured stranger in the street, but he just might be the key she needs to succeed. What Mackenzie doesn't know, is that this stranger isn't the helpless boy he appears to be. He's one of them. And he's got plans of his own.

Thrown into a dying city in another realm, Mackenzie is powerless to get back. She's being hunted by creatures who want to tear her to bits, not to mention the sinking feeling of what the monsters may have planned for her home. With the gateway closing, time is not on her side. But the stranger is, and if they can only escape execution, this girl and her monster might be able to save both their worlds.

Special thanks to Cora Graphics for the amazing cover art, my beta readers, friends and fellow authors, and everyone who helped bring this one together. I've enjoyed bringing this story to life and I cannot wait to share it. Thank you all for reading and the years of support <3

Betrayals of Spring (Forever Fae Series) by L.P. Dover
Mark of the Mage (The Scribes of Medeisia Series) by R.K. Ryals
Frey (The Frey Saga) by Melissa Wright

Betrayals of Spring by L.P. Dover

The smell of rain vastly approaches as we are lying on the ground in a sea of flowers. They surround our bodies while the fresh Spring wind caresses our skin with its soft, gentle touch. Combined as one, we stare into each other’s eyes as we bask in the pleasure of our love and OUR land. 

The Land of the Fae has flourished bringing a new beginning and a new court, the Fall Court. Five years have passed since then along with the dreaded day that Meliantha, Summer Court Princess and one of the powerful Four, was betrayed and broken-hearted by the sexy and alluring Winter Prince, Kalen. Spurned by the man she loves, Meliantha has turned and fallen into the arms of the fierce and handsome warrior, Finn, who understands she can never love him, but wants more than anything to mend her broken heart. 

The Winter Solstice Ball is approaching, meaning Meliantha will have to face the Winter Prince and make it out of there with her heart intact. But what does she do when Prince Kalen acts as if nothing ever happened and seems more in love with her than ever before? 

The dark sorcerer has planned his twisted game of lies and deceit well, and has enjoyed making himself a player without anyone’s knowledge. The game is almost over and the players are exactly where they are needed to be. Will Meliantha figure out his twisted game and save all the players? Or will the dark sorcerer once again obtain the power of the Four and take everything away from her…even her one true love? 

***Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Not intended for young readers.***

Mark of the Mage by R.K. Ryals

~Mark of the Mage is a B.R.A.G Medallion Honoree~ 

Books never die, but they can be forbidden. 

Medeisia is a country in turmoil ruled by a blood thirsty king who has outlawed the use of magic and anything pertaining to knowledge. Magery and scribery are forbidden. All who practice are marked with a tattoo branded onto their wrists, their futures precarious. 

Sixteen year-old Drastona Consta-Mayria lives secluded, spending her spare time in the Archives of her father's manor surrounded by scribes. She wants nothing more than to become one of them, but when the scribes are royally disbanded, she is thrust into a harsh world where the marked must survive or die.

Frey by Melissa Wright

Unaware she's been bound from using magic, Frey leads a small, miserable life in the village where she's sent after the death of her mother. But a tiny spark starts a fury of changes and she finds herself running from everything she's ever known.

Hunted by council for practicing dark magic, she is certain she's been wrongfully accused. She flees, and is forced to rely on strangers for protection. But the farther she strays from home, the more her magic and forgotten memories return and she begins to suspect all is not as it seems.
