Description:

Emmanuel Ortiz holds an ancient and dark secret... His real name is Judas Iscariot. Forced to walk the earth as a cursed immortal, Judas’ disguised as Emmanuel does little to ease his eternal loneliness. Having recovered nine of his thirty blood coins, his focus is not yet on redemption for his treacherous role in the betrayal of Jesus Christ.Distractions come easily for the wealthy entrepreneur and occasional sleuth who presently resides in England, 1888. Fascinated by the spate of murders in London’s poverty-stricken Whitechapel, Emmanuel soon realizes the killings resemble others he is familiar with...indeed, the bloody signature of killing and taunts speaks to the unholy talents of yet another immortal—an enemy from long ago.This knowledge fuels his determination to track and apprehend the infamous Jack the Ripper at any cost.With the backdrop of a Victorian Society, rigid and moralistic, along with the plight of those less fortunate, Emmanuel seeks to align himself with Scotland Yard.With the help of his immortal pal, Roderick Cooley, and by pretending to be an American private investigator interested in the horrific prostitute killings, he sets out to stop the senseless bloodshed.But, has he bitten off more than he can chew by immersing himself in the slums and disease of the Ripper’s hunting grounds?As the mystery unfolds, it becomes the ultimate test—not only of his abilities as an immortal but also of his very soul.Murder in Whitechapel is the first book in the Judas Reflections series of prequel mystery thrillers, and is part of the broader Cursed Immortals world of supernatural adventures.

"This was it, the end of my story."

They were trapped with no way back. Stumbling into an unknown world is terrifying for any human, but for anxiety-riddled Lenora, it's worse. There's only one consolation: She arrived on horseback, with her beloved black gelding.

Starpathia holds a realm of enchanting creatures both wondrous and lethal. Protected under the watchful eyes of Elders, the people wield impossible gifts, unbelievable to an outsider. That is, until Lenora’s own hidden powers surface, turning the eyes of The Fallen upon her.

Shadow magic hurls Lenora into an age-old conflict begun long before her arrival. Whispers of one who can enter your mind place her in far more danger than most, for the caged beings she brought from home still reside deep inside. Now they are getting louder, screaming to be heard.

Can Lenora master her new powers against such ancient darkness?

Or will she fall prey to the darkness inside, dooming this realm and all others?

Description:

On June 9, 1865, while traveling by train to London with his secret mistress, 53-year-old Charles Dickens -- at the height of his powers and popularity, the most famous and successful novelist in the world and perhaps in the history of the world -- hurtled into a disaster that changed his life forever. Did Dickens begin living a dark double life after the accident? Were his nightly forays into the worst slums of London and his deepening obsession with corpses, crypts, murder, opium dens, the use of lime pits to dissolve bodies, and a hidden subterranean London mere research . . . or something more terrifying? Just as he did in The Terror, Dan Simmons draws impeccably from history to create a gloriously engaging and terrifying narrative. Based on the historical details of Charles Dickens's life and narrated by Wilkie Collins (Dickens's friend, frequent collaborator, and Salieri-style secret rival), Drood explores the still-unsolved mysteries of the famous author's last years and may provide the key to Dickens's final, unfinished work: The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Chilling, haunting, and utterly original, Drood is Dan Simmons at his powerful best.

The war isn’t over . . .

With the world clinging to a fragile peace forced on the Fae by humanity after the Faerie Wars, metalsmith Alex Blackwood is plunged into the world of the half-fae who traffick in illegal magical artifacts. Her best friend’s murder and his cryptic last message place her in the crosshairs of a scheme to reignite the decade-old war between humans and fae.

Worse, violent attacks against her and the arrival of a fae knight on a mission force Alex to face a devastating revelation of who and what she is. To catch a killer, retrieve a dangerous artifact, and stop a war, Alex will have to accept that she’s an unregistered fae “halfer” with a unique magical talent—a talent that would change everything she believes about her past, her art, and her future.

Her world is crumbling around her, and Alex will have to decide who to trust if she and the world are going to survive.
