Emerge: The Heir: (Book 4)
byMelissa A. Craven
The last Immortal Queen of Indriell has named her heir.
The title means nothing to Allie Carmichael. Nothing but more drama and attention she never asked for.
Allie loves her newly discovered royal grandparents, but she just wants to finish her senior year of college and start her first job. Not step forward as the princess of a long dead nation she knows precious little about.
At twenty-one, she considers herself an adult and has finally found the normal life she’s always craved. As normal as it gets for a young Immortal legacy—prophecy or not.
For years, Allie and Aidan have gone their separate ways, doing the college thing and just living their lives. Apart. It was his choice to sever their ties. A sacrifice to give her the time she needed to come to terms with her bond with his brother, Darius. A sacrifice she’s come to believe was necessary for all of them.
But when Allie discovers that Aidan hasn’t been in school all this time—and his family hasn’t heard from him in more than a year, she struggles to contain her rage and the powerful judgment that burns within her.
Protecting Aidan, even from himself, fuels her every breath. She would do anything for him. Even step forward as the heir.
The Paper Magician (The Paper Magician Series, Book 1)
byCharlie N. Holmberg
Ceony Twill arrives at the cottage of Magician Emery Thane with a broken heart. Having graduated at the top of her class from the Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined, Ceony is assigned an apprenticeship in paper magic despite her dreams of bespelling metal. And once she’s bonded to paper, that will be her only magic…forever.
Yet the spells Ceony learns under the strange yet kind Thane turn out to be more marvelous than she could have ever imagined—animating paper creatures, bringing stories to life via ghostly images, even reading fortunes. But as she discovers these wonders, Ceony also learns of the extraordinary dangers of forbidden magic.
An Excisioner—a practitioner of dark, flesh magic—invades the cottage and rips Thane’s heart from his chest. To save her teacher’s life, Ceony must face the evil magician and embark on an unbelievable adventure that will take her into the chambers of Thane’s still-beating heart—and reveal the very soul of the man.

Then Raven's mom is abducted by the same demon who came after her. And who turns up at the scene of the crime again? Noah. He’s hunting the demons who are taking humans, and he’s ultimately heading where Raven needs to go to save her mom—the mystical island of Avalon.
Now Raven’s joining Noah’s demon hunting mission whether he wants her there or not. Which he doesn't. But nothing stops Raven, so she and Noah will have to learn to work together—if they don’t kill each other first.
More importantly, she has to survive his crazy demon hunt. Because surviving is the only way to get to Avalon and save her mom’s life.

Captured and held by Lexen and his brothers, she learns the rules are in place for a very good reason. There's a secret world hidden in this small town which goes far beyond the one she knows and understands.
A world not for humans.

Heir of Shadows (Book 1)
By Kel Carpenter
Three sisters. Two liars. One choice…and if I chose wrong it all ends in bloodshed.
My name is Selena Foster, and my sisters and I were just shipped off to a Supernatural boarding school. I should be thrilled we are not alone. I should be grateful to leave the human world. I am not.
Thrust into a world of power and politics, I’m left isolated when my sisters settle into their new lives. With only the campus boxing gym and a mysterious green-eyed boy for company, I begin to fall into a routine. I let someone in. That was the first mistake.
The second was listening to the whispers that haunt me.
One mistake, that’s all it takes to lose someone I love…and I made two already.

By Kelly St Clare and Raye Wagner
I will never be controlled again.
A manipulative dragon shifter. A sexy phaetyn prince. Me? I shouldn’t even exist.
With peace established in Verald, I should be free; Lord Tyrrik is liberated from his blood oath, after all. But the freedom in Verald is an illusion. If I remain, destruction will surely follow.
As soon as I come into my powers, the blood-thirsty emperor of Draecon will know. Even now, he is hunting me.
When a Phaetyn prince arrives promising safety, the solution seems perfect. A little too perfect. But is the objective of our group security or something more? Because everyone is telling me what my goals shouldbe.
Who do you trust when everyone has lied to you?
Should I listen with my head – or my heart?
I might not get a choice.
