by XJ Selman

The world is dead… and for a thousand years, they’ve hidden. The citizens claim they love Spes, the underground city where they evade the deadly toxins of the surface world, but the walls never end and the guards never cease to watch. There is a longing to escape, and a hope that someday the world might live again. But how do the people know what they are told is truth? How far will they go to trust the unknown, and how much will they fight for that they cannot have?

Facebook  Twitter  Homepage_29x29 MAGE REVEALED
by CD Coffelt
Not many can say they were born twice in a lifetime. Not many would want to. Struck with enough malevolent Spirit to turn him into a raving beast of a man, Bert Reese fights to remain human. Then, an unlikely source enters his life to help—one of the now-hated mages. But Ashleigh is different and calms his butchered senses. Her fierce nature is the only rock that stands between him and the crevasse that is beast. In all ways, she walks beside him toward a new beginning. Forced on him without a care for his humanity, Bert is the mage who should not exist, born with a different kind of magic – And the gates of Hell are no match for the magic he wields.

by Eliza Tilton
Three months have passed since Avikar defeated the Reptilian Prince, and he still can’t remember his battle with Lucino. On the hunt for answers, he returns to the scene of the fight and discovers a strange connection between his family’s dagger and the mysterious kingdom of Daath, and it seems only his distant father can reveal the truth behind it all. Before Avikar can travel back home, Lucy assaults him in the market and forces him to flee to Nod Mountains—a place few dare to enter, and even less return from. With Raven and her childhood friend by his side, they must survive the treacherous journey through the pass with a vengeful Lucy hunting them. If they don’t, they’ll never see home again.
