The Goddess of Death, the Grimm Brothers, and the Devil collide in a thrilling new paranormal fantasy series. 

Primrose Titan is the Goddess of Death, an ancient deity who reaps the souls of the dead and rules the Underworld. All life ends with death, and in death, there is no happiness. Primrose knows this better than anyone, and her heavy responsibility has twisted her reality, purging her of all feelings for humans-or so she believes.

When the Demon King Lucifer escapes his prison in Hell and threatens chaos on the human world, Primrose must hunt him down. The High Court, a council of deities, is skeptical Primrose can handle Lucifer on her own and appoints the handsome yet icy Atlas Grimm, one of the fabled Grimm Brothers, to assist her. Strange, dark magic and supernatural creatures sent from the Devil himself stand in their way, along with political enemies acquired over the millennia.


“The Demon King, Lucifer, has escaped from Hell.”

Gasps and surprised whispers echoed across the room. All emotion dropped from my face as it drained of color. My blood ran cold.

“So,” my brother said, scrutinizing my reaction, “you should really be asking my sister about the security of her prison system in Hell, considering she’s in charge of that particular subregion of the Underworld.”

The conference room burst into chaos. Deities sprung from their chairs and conversations escalated to loud screaming matches. Frozen, I tried to process Ben’s words. The Demon King escaped. My head was feverish yet light. Drops of sweat slid down my skin. Much time passed since I felt true fear. Lucifer’s name brought it back like a wave of deadly vengeance.

“Quiet,” Erin Grimm ordered. “Let’s not devolve into hysteria just yet.”

The room went silent, and the accusing gazes of the High Court pierced me like a hot poker. “As we know,” Erin continued, “the Devil is mad. He attempted to overthrow multiple deities and treasonously plotted against the High Court. We wouldn’t want such a thing to happen again, Lady Primrose. I’m sure you understand.”

The High Court awaited my reaction with poorly concealed anticipation. They wanted confirmation I hadn’t set Lucifer free. Though I wanted nothing more than to annoy the petty, insignificant lives of the deities seated in this scented, elegant room, freeing Lucifer was not an option. His escape harmed me more than anyone else.

Claustrophobia was theoretically impossible in a room the size of a hotel, yet I was suffocating under the pressure of hundreds of expectant eyes. Though the Court members wouldn’t remain patient much longer, I stole a moment to restore my composure, breathing in through the nose, out through the mouth. The beating of my heart slowed. My eyes glazed into boredom, and my heart distanced itself from every being in the room.

I chose my next words carefully. “Are you certain he has escaped?”

Ben’s forehead creased. “I have no reason to lie.”

“His prison is well guarded. I have every right to contest a claim so outlandish as this, especially in the High Court.”

Never Trust a Tronovian

Ilaria Shaye Kitarni is the sole heir to the Midorian Throne, but she will never be permitted to rule.
On the eve of her wedding to her childhood best friend, she unwittingly thwarts an assassination attempt, and is kidnapped by the Tronovians, the sworn enemy of the Midorians.
Determined to escape her captors, she burns their boat and swims to the shores of the Jungle Kingdom of Bava. But instead of getting away, she thrusts herself, and the three magic-wielding brothers who captured her, into perils she’s only ever read about in books.
During the long trek through Bava, she discovers hidden truths not only about the people she loves most, but about herself as well.

Never trust a Tronovian. That has been beaten into Shaye’s head for as long as she can remember, but could it be, the only people she can trust, are her enemies?

About the Author

Morgan Gauthier Headshot

Storytelling is in Morgan Gauthier’s blood. She can’t seem to turn her brain off at night and some of her best ideas have come to her in the shower.

Born to two book-loving parents, Morgan was raised on a healthy diet of The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Nancy Drew, and any fantasy book she could get her hands on. She started writing her own stories at eleven years old and hasn’t looked back.

She is the author of the Mark of the Hunter Trilogy (Wolves of Adalore, The Red Maiden, and The Raven and the Wolf) as well as Aloha, Seattle and The Maine Attraction (both Contemporary Romantic Comedies).

Morgan Gauthier lives in East Tennessee with her husband and best friend, Brad, and their three children, Remi, Archer, and Roux (who are 5 years old and younger!). If five people wreaking havoc in the same house wasn’t enough, Morgan also has three dogs, Potter, Skye, and Bubba.

If Morgan isn’t writing or reading, she can be found binge watching Netflix shows, attempting to cook like Gordon Ramsay (not even close to his level), and practicing archery.

Goodreads / Amazon


“Something has already happened to Akamai. And what— we’re to trust this, this Lili Mele in his place?”

Mele bristled, but tempered herself with a glance to Akamai, finding his eyes staring dead into hers. To her surprise, he tapped his lips. A gesture on a list he wrote. It meant she was allowed to speak freely. Mele burst from her seat and pressed her hands into the table. “Lili Mele? I am not the one who sold myself to the council of nobles in exchange for a good word with the emperor. Don’t fool yourself, Lili Takaahae, this is not the world we used to live in, and I am the most valuable asset you sniveling council of cowards has. What choice is there but to wait for now? Min needs the energy when he returns. I’d imagine tracing the edge of the land has drained his stores far lower than any of ours. Now I’m begging to return to our plans for when the search parties return. My brain has been decaying with every syllable that exits your mouth.”


Author Bio:

An LGBTQ, Black-Latino young adult, Paul Williams has struggled with his identity, eventually leading to mental illness.
