Book Cover for Natural Witch

 

Natural Witch by K.F. Breene

 

Penny could've had no idea of the amount of explosive magic that runs through her blood. Now she is on the run, fighting for her life and her freedom from a ruthless organization that would use her to dominate the magical world.

You do not need to read the other DDVN World novels to pick up this book.

Something has always been missing from my life. A hole that I could never seem to fill.

When I accidentally turn a coven of witches into nightmares, I find out what that something is.

Magic.

And it turns out, I have a crap load of it.

As a latent power awakens deep inside of me, I’m exposed to one of the most powerful and corrupt organizations in the magical world—the Mages’ Guild.

Barely knowing a spell from a few swear words and luck, I won’t be able to evade them alone.

And that’s when I meet him.

The Rogue Natural. The best and most feared mage in the world.

He’s dangerous, mysterious, and has a vendetta of his own. He is now the only thing between me and magical enslavement.

Book Cover for Inception

 

Inception by Bianca Scardoni

 

My name is Jemma Blackburn and I have a secret. I know vampires are real. I watched one murder my father eight months ago, and even though they tried to convince me it didn’t happen—that I’d lost touch with reality due to the trauma, I know what I saw was real.

Hollow Hills is now the place I call home. It was supposed to be my chance at a normal life. My chance to bury my secret and start over. But everyone around me is keeping their own secrets, whispering lies into my ears like promises, and one of them is about to turn my entire world upside down.

I thought I had it all figured out. I thought I had the answers. I thought I knew who I was. The truth is, I didn’t even know the half of it. There's a reason these vampires are still after me. There's a reason they will always hunt me. Because I'm not human.

I'm the devil they fear and the angel they crave.
Only problem is, I don't know it yet.

INCEPTION is the enthralling first installment in The Marked Saga. A coming of age YA paranormal romance full of atmosphere, supernatural adventure, and jaw-dropping twists that will keep you guessing until the very last page.

Perfect for fans of Twilight, Vampire Diaries and Fallen Angel Romances.

But she can't send him away--not yet. Her future isn't what she thought. The lies surrounding her fate have begun to unravel, and she needs answers before time runs out--answers that lie in the spirit realm. Shiro can take her there ... if she dares to trust him.

And only then will she find out how deep the gods' treachery runs.

Book Cover for White

 

White by Angelina J. Steffort

 

Falling in love with a paranormal creature isn’t a good idea for 18-year-old Claire. Having just adjusted to a new High School after her parents’ death, she can’t afford to be sidetracked by complications of any kind—no matter how intriguing. But fate has different plans for her…

As she falls head over heels for Adam, Claire inevitably spirals into the eternal war between good and evil.

I was thrown to the ground by the force of it and something hard hit my head. The last thing I saw was Adam’s shape against the white radiating light that seemed to have its source inside him...

When 18-year-old Claire Gabriel meets Adam, her life takes a drastic turn. He seems to have stepped right out of a fairy tale and he is beautiful – more than anything. On the way to discovering his secret, Claire soon finds herself in love with the mysterious boy.
Unable to evade the dark shadow their feelings for each other draw up, Claire becomes a target in the eternal war between good and evil. . .

Part-Time Monster Hunter by Nicholas Woode-Smith

I aim to find out. One hunt at a time.

Book Cover for Whispers of the Walkers

 

Whispers of the Walker by E.E. Holmes

 

Something whispers in the shadows...

From E.E. Holmes, author of the award-winning Gateway Trilogy, comes the first in the highly anticipated companion series The Gateway Trackers. It’s been several years since Jess and Hannah Ballard foiled a cataclysmic prophecy that could have destroyed their fellow Durupinen, an ancient clan of women who allow spirits to cross between the worlds of the living and the dead. The girls swore, after the devastation and chaos they endured, they would never get caught up in the inner workings of the Durupinen again.

They were wrong.

After breaking the code of secrecy and facing the judgement of the High Council, Jess and Hannah have no choice but to become Trackers, working to take down those who would exploit the spirit world for profit or power. Their first assignment takes them into the deep South, where Jeremiah Campbell, a self-proclaimed spiritual guru, lures wealthy and desperate devotees with promises of a deeper connection with the dead. As the girls go undercover, it soon becomes clear that Campbell is not merely the con artist they suspected him to be, and that they, and the spirit world they are sworn to protect, are once again in unimaginable danger.

Whispers of the Walker is the first spine-tingling installment in "The Gateway Trackers" series by E.E. Holmes.

Book Cover for Huntress

 

Huntress by Julie Hall

 

Death was only the beginning.

My name is Audrey Lyons, and I’m dead. I’ve also just learned that everyone in the afterlife is given a job . . . for all of eternity, and I’ve been assigned to be a demon hunter.

This could be bad—physical activity and I aren’t on speaking terms and my trainer, Logan, is as infuriating as he is attractive.

Just when I think my life—or rather, afterlife—is all punch, stab, rinse and repeat, I find myself the wielder of the most powerful sword in existence and the key to unleashing the apocalypse.

With Satan gunning for me, the lives of the living, the fate of my fellow hunters, and the balance between good and evil now rests in my hands. But no pressure, right?

Fans of The Mortal Instruments, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Supernatural won't want to miss out on all the twists and turns in this clean YA Fantasy journey. Grab your copy of the book that readers have called “captivating,” “stunning,” and “refreshingly beautiful!”

After the storm of the century rips apart New Orleans, sixteen-year-old Adele Le Moyne and her father are among the first to return.

Strange events—even for New Orleans—lead Adele to an attic that has been sealed for three hundred years. The chaos she accidentally unleashes threatens not only her but also everyone she knows.

Caught in a hurricane of myths and monsters, Adele must untangle a web of magic that weaves the climbing murder rate back to her own ancestors. But who can you trust in a city where everyone has secrets and keeping them can mean life or death? Unless…you’re immortal.
