On the darkest day, in the darkest hour, when all hope has been extinguished, a hand will draw the one true sword, and a lost throne shall be reclaimed...
Generations of De Montfort women have protected the sword in the stone. Gwen is the last of them, following in the footsteps of her grandmother, Moscelyne.
But the sword has now been drawn, and the new Witch King may well be working with Darkside.
Now the race is on to find the missing artifacts that will stop the king accessing the full power of the sword. But as the attacks escalate and the fractured clues of history are slowly pieced together, Gwen, Mo, and Luc Durant-the motorbike-riding warrior from an ancient order of knights-quickly realize all is not as it seems. Worse still, the true source of the plot to unleash Darkside and restore witch rule is far closer to home than any had guessed.
But as new prophecies rise, and the truth of the sword in the stone becomes clear, another race begins.
One that will end with a crown, a throne, and the fate of all England as its prize.
A modern fantasy novel inspired by the King Arthur legend...
For hundreds of years, the Witch King's sword has been buried in stone awaiting the next hand to draw it.
Many have tried. None have succeeded.
Gwen is the last in a long line of De Montfort witches whose duty it is to protect the sword of all power. But when she returns to King Island to perform the blessing, a mysterious pulse of blue light tells her that someone has attempted to draw the sword. Before she can investigate any further, demons attack. She only survives with the help of a mysterious stranger who disappears as quickly as he appears.
Gwen and her grandmother, Moscelyne, soon discover that minor gateways into Darkside--the traditional home of both demons and dark elves--are being forced open by magic. Even worse, someone is now sending demons after the Witch King's heirs.
As vital artifacts are stolen by Darkside and the deaths draw altogether too close to home, Gwen and Mo--with the help of old gods and an ancient order of knights once thought dead--scramble to unravel the clues and stop the murderous would-be king from claiming the crown.
If they fail and the wrong hand draws the sword of power, he can unlock the main gateway into Darkside and unleash utter hell onto an unsuspecting and unprepared England....
After dealing with the fallout of a shape-shifting, fire-throwing demon, Lizzie, Belle, and Aiden are hoping the reservation will finally catch a break from the constant influx of evil. Those hopes are quickly dashed when Lizzie comes across the scent of evil and tracks it back to the clean-picked bones of a man.
As it quickly becomes obvious that this is not a one-off situation and there's now a demon with a taste for human flesh on the reservation, another problem arises in the form of a White Lady--a ghost not only seeking bloody revenge, but demanding Belle's assistance to get it.
And she won't take no for an answer.
But the greatest threat of all might be the witch who is a magical bloodhound. A witch who's been sent to the reservation to by one Clayton Marlowe...
Will a woman with no memory be the salvation of her people... or the means of their final destruction?
Nara Velez wakes in a prison pod with no idea how she got there. She quickly learns that things have drastically changed during the time she can't remember--and not just with her situation. The Mareritt--an ancient enemy--now control most of Arleeon and treat her people little better than slaves.
Worse still, the Mareritt also control the drakkons.
Nara has no choice but to work with Kaiden Silva, the warrior she's been chained to and a man who distrusts her deeply. But escaping the Mareritt is only the first of their problems; they soon discover their enemy is working on a brand-new weapon--one with the power to wipe out the last remaining free city in Arleeon, just as they'd wiped out the drakkon warriors of yesteryear.
If Nara is to have any hope of freeing Arleeon, she must first regain her memories and determine why they were restricted.
But in doing so, she might just unleash hell on the very people she is trying to save.
Because there is magic in her mind... and its source is Mareritt.
After dealing with human hunters killing werewolves for their pelts and a heretic witch determined to claim the wild magic for his own, the last thing either Lizzie Grace or Belle Kent need is a new evil burning into town.
When Lizzie's asked to find a missing woman, she's well aware death awaits. What she doesn't expect to find is a very human pile of skin next the woman's body. Nor does she expect to be called to a murder scene that has the classic hallmarks of a vampire attack... except the bite marks don't match any recorded vampire bite.
As the body count grows, Lizzie, Belle, and Aiden struggle to find--and stop--whoever or whatever is behind the atrocities. But there's an even greater danger on the horizon.
The newly appointed reservation witch has arrived... and it's someone Lizzie knows.
Whomsoever draws the sword from the ancient seat of this land shall rule her, and they shall bring peace and prosperity to her people.
For nearly a thousand years, the firstborn son of every Cannamore king has drawn the sword, and the land and her people have indeed prospered. Princess Nyx Bel-Hannon is neither male nor firstborn, but it's her hand that draws the sword rather than her twin brother's. Her reward: imprisonment.
But a deep darkness now spreads across the kingdom, and her borders are threatened by creatures capable of magic powerful enough to destroy mountains and split the land asunder. Without the true heir to wield the sword, Cannamore risks annihilation. The king and crown prince want nothing more than to be permanently rid of Nyx, but cannot afford her blood on their hands. Instead, they give her to a fractious warlord in the hope he will do what they dare not.
Nyx has no intention of letting the warlord get in the way of her thirst for revenge or the need to claim her throne. But it's a quest that may well destroy the kingdom she loves, because Nyx has been cursed by the god of war. It is her destiny to save Cannamore.
Or utterly destroy it.
Christmas is fast approaching. Lizzie Grace, and her witch familiar, Belle Kent, are hoping it's going to be a quiet one.
But those hopes are dashed when, on a quest to find a customer's errant husband, Lizzie comes across the body of a witch and a dark circle of power neither she nor Ashworth can break.
Then werewolves begin to turn up dead--skinned.
As the body count rises and the hunters become the hunted, its evident there's a new evil in town.
One that's determined to claim the reservation--and the wild magic--as his own.
Winterborne has long been a city divided between those who have magic, and those who do not. Between those who are free, and those who are not...
Though classified as having no magic, Neve March can hear the whispers of the wind and sometimes even control her. But it's a secret she must hold close if she wishes to continue as Nightwatch--the soldiers who guard Winterborne against those who roam the wastelands and feast on human flesh.
When Neve investigates a faint SOS signal, she not only unearths a woman close to death, but a plot involving an ancient enemy long thought dead. In an effort to expose those behind the plot, Neve goes undercover amongst Winterborne's elite--a dangerous step that could expose her secret and rip away all that she holds dear.
The trail of treachery leads her from Winterborne's golden halls to the heart of the enemy's hive, and it will shake her belief of not only who she is, but what she is.
Harriet Phillecky is a rare part elf, part siren and wanted by neither race. Not that she really cares. A successful news photographer turned paranormal investigator, she now has a 'family' of friends that includes ogres who constantly raid her refrigerator and take over her TV, and a dragon who drinks far too much for his own good.
But when the only elven relative she has any contact with asks her to investigate the disappearance of a siren, she finds herself unable to refuse.
All too quickly the disappearance becomes murder, relatives come out of the woodwork, and a man she'd much rather forget steps back into her life. Harri wants nothing more than to run--especially when the evidence beats a path to the doors of those who'd long ago abandoned her.
But when the life she's created for herself comes under threat, Harri has little choice but to hunt down a killer-before everything she holds dear is destroyed.
