The people are oppressed. The King is corrupt. A rebellion has ended in murder and mayhem. But never mind all that because everybody loves a royal wedding!
Evil Prince Erik has discovered the bride he needs to secure his grip on the throne. But the idea doesn’t grip his betrothed, peasant girl Jenny. Already in the shit, she doubles down with an escape through the castle’s sewers. Her trusty raven, Croak, is never far behind, ready to peck the eyes out of anyone harming his mistress. Unless they have shiny things.
Meanwhile, in Rosie’s Tavern, Leo the Licker indulges his voracious appetite for stew, ale, and lady parts. The men of the village discover who’s been pleasuring their wives, and all hell breaks loose. Enter Jenny, with Erik’s soldiers hot on her tail, under orders to bring her hot tail back to the castle. The unlikely couple find themselves flung together and on the run. Or in fat Leo’s case, on the fast walk.
Can Jenny ever escape the horny Prince? Will Leo stop eating and drinking long enough to help? And is there romance in the air, or is that just Leo’s dodgy tummy?
Speak of pain, and I’ll tell you of the Time who stole it away…
Besieged by war, ravaged by monsters, and crawling with the undead, the land of Okarria is dying. Seventeen-year-old Emara survives by using her modest healing gift to save as many as she can while eluding the invaders who thirst for her enchanted blood.
So when a cursed cat saves her life and reveals Emara is the legendary Time Heir the necromancer king’s been searching for, she agrees to act as bait in a plot to destroy him. But when the plan goes horrifically awry, Emara must discover how deep her powers go, what she can change…
And what she cannot.
Unfortunately, Time Heirs have a history of getting killed, and with Okarria’s future on the line, Emara may have no choice but to follow in her ancestors’ footsteps.
The night buries all shadows…
After healing from the last battle with Idriel’s Children, the young Shadow Heir, Aza Thane, once again finds herself at a magus’s door looking for answers.

When a dangerous new breed of monster attacks, Aza believes the Shadow Plane holds the answers they need to defeat them. With the unwanted help of a snarky cat and a cursed beast, Aza seeks out the monastic Wraith-Called for answers. But the deeper Aza delves into the dark realm, the further she drifts from the world she knows.
As Aza uncovers evils new and old, she must decide if the ends really do justify the means… and how many lives she’s willing to pay.
There are worse things than the undead…

And time is running out.
