Peter & Wendy: A Tale of The Lost

Peter & Wendy: A Tale of The Lost


 
Eve is the girl who has nothing.
 
She never knew her father. Her mother is an alcoholic. She goes to one of the roughest schools in the country, and every day there is a study in torment: she’s been slashed with knives, burnt with cigarettes butts, and worse. Her life is one of constant fear, constant pain.
 
Until HE comes.
 
On the day the most handsome guy Eve has ever seen starts coming to her school, she somehow knows everything is going to change. And it does. He sweeps her off her feet. He makes her feel beautiful. He makes her feel loved. He makes her feel… SPECIAL.
 
The only problem is that he wants to murder her.
 
Because he is a vampire. A vampire named…
 
PETER PAN.
 
Eve is the great-great-great-granddaughter of Wendy, the first human girl Peter ever fell in love with, and who fell in love with him… right before he killed her.
 
Peter wants make Eve his own as well – to give her his heart, make her fall in love with him, then drink her blood as he has vowed to do to every girl born of the Wendy line. And Peter he is a near-invincible creature of super-human strength, inhuman cunning, and ageless desire. He has marked her as his, so his she will be, body and soul.
 
Eve’s only hope lays with James Hook, vampire killer and sworn protector of the Wendy line.
 
Like Peter, James has lived a long, long time in the shape of a young man. But where the Pan lives a life of dangerous pleasure and beautiful death, Hook survives in a world of scars and shade. His face and body have been slashed and crippled, and still he continues: he will protect Eve however he can, whatever the cost.
 
But Eve isn’t sure she WANTS to be protected. Because for the first time, Peter Pan may actually be falling in love. For the first time, Eve has found not one but two people who fight for a place in her heart.
 
For the first time, Eve is on the verge of truly becoming one of The Lost…

The Sword Chronicles: Child of Sorrows

The Sword Chronicles: Child of Sorrows

Sword thought it was over…

She thought that when she killed the Chancellor and ended the corrupt reign of the Emperor, that everything would get better. That the suffering would end in Ansborn. That the people would be free.

But now a new terror has been born. A trio of warriors who live only for vengeance, who know only hate, have set their sights on Sword and on those she holds dear. They are powerful, they are deadly, and they are impossible to kill.

And worst of all, they are but harbingers of what is to come. Because after a thousand years, the unknown enemy that lies below the mountains of Ansborn is at last on the move. And it is coming for them all.

Death from among them.

Death from below.

And only one person – one Sword – has any chance of stopping it.

The Sword Chronicles: Child of the Empire

The Sword Chronicles: Child of the Empire

A kingdom will fall by the sword…

She is a Dog – one of the many children and teens across the empire of Ansborn who have been sentenced to fight in the arenas. There they fight in battle after battle until they die for the sport of the people of Ansborn – an empire built atop the peaks of five mountains.

But one day she picks up a knife… and everything changes.

She discovers she is a Greater Gift – one of a handful of magic users with powers so great they have only two choices: to join the Empire as one of its premier assassins, or die as a threat to the Empire itself.

She is no longer a Dog. Now, she is Sword. And she will soon realize that in this Empire, not all is what it seems. Good and evil collide, and she can never be sure whom to trust – not even herself.

She holds life in her hands for some. Brings death by her blade to others.

She is a killer.
She is a savior.

She is Sword.

Billy: Messenger of Powers

Billy: Messenger of Powers

“BILLY WAS ONLY FOURTEEN YEARS OLD THE FIRST TIME HE DIED.”


And with those words the saga of Billy Jones begins with BILLY: MESSENGER OF POWERS.

Billy, like many of us, leads what he believes is a fairly normal life: trying to get through school, trying to deal with his first crush, and trying to avoid the bullies who seem intent on trying to prove he can be flushed down a toilet. But all that changes (or at least some of it) when Billy discovers that Powers walk among us.

These Powers (what you or I would call witches or warlocks) have divided into two camps: the Dawnwalkers, dedicated to the protection of humanity and the secrecy of the world of the Powers; and the Darksiders, who want nothing more or less than complete control of the world and the enslavement of all humanity.

For years the Darksiders and Dawnwalkers have lived in a state of uneasy truce: ever since the last War of the Powers, when the evil Darksider Wolfen was defeated and banished, cast out of the world of the Powers and ordered never to return.

But now there are whispers. There are stirrings. Portents.

Wolfen has returned.

The Darksiders are on the rise.

And Billy is the only one who can save the world.
