Excerpt:

The hare stalked the wolf.

His trail had grown alternately warm and cold over the years, his passage never anything more than whispers. Rumors filled Eni’s ears and journal, mutterings heard only when the nights grew long and cups grew empty, but they were enough. They had brought her to Ctesiphon, where the air felt almost galvanic with potential, and to a small tavern where she knew the other patrons felt the same.

The voices of mammals were just a little too loud, a little too cheery, with a desperate edge to every word that passed from one set of lips to another. All conversation stopped as the door banged open, an ash-choked wind blowing in grit and making the lanterns hung from the rafters overhead sway drunkenly. The floorboards vibrated with the passage of a massive bull making his way to the bar, the mournful breeze dying in an instant as a waitress slammed the door shut.

Mammals began talking again as the bull sat down heavily, wordlessly ordering a beer, and for a moment Eni could almost tell herself she was imagining the heavy atmosphere.

Almost.

Just outside the inn’s cozy confines Ctesiphon was dying by inches, the stench of burning crops impossible to banish no matter how many sweet-smelling herbs dangled from the smoke-blackened rafters. The Blight was implacable, an enemy that couldn’t be fought by any normal means, but Eni wasn’t searching for someone normal.

BLURB

 

A reckless princess. A mysterious demon. An unlikely master-slave bond.

Kissa Andreos had two goals.

1. Become the best mage Krateos had ever seen.

2. Capture the affection of her brooding demon slave, Caean.

Too bad that she wasn’t strong enough for the former, while the latter was considered a capital offense punishable by death.

But she wasn’t deterred.

In a world where demons were used and discarded for their powers, Kissa saw Caean as more than a tool. He was her best friend and the sole object of her affection.

Unfortunately, he didn’t return her feelings.

When a conspiracy against Kissa comes to light and new dangers abound, Kissa and Caean must become closer than ever in order to defeat an invisible enemy.

Can Kissa outsmart her enemies while nursing her unrequited love from a distance? Or can she finally convince Caean to take a chance on her—even if the entire world would shun them for it?

Kingdoms of Life & Death is the introduction to the Catharsis Trilogy, which follows Kissa and Caean. This is an extreme slow burn high fantasy romance that ends on a cliffhanger.

EXCERPT

In the sacred grove for the past two days Kalero sat on a rock before the waterfalls. Nobody disturbed him. In his wizard’s eye, Kalero opened himself up to the listening first taught to him by Sylvara’s primordial Druidism. He could hear creation’s song in every sound around him. In his heart, he could feel the peace of life and its ambient energy. He could absorb it, harness it, and fill his soul with it. If anyone with a wizarding eye could see, his soul’s aura glowed an intense gold and green, crackling with power as he drew the power into himself. And if someone had faith, they would see a wizard devout. In between meditative states of absorbing these energies, Kalero would finger his mother’s Star of Galadrana and pray. Fastened around his neck by a leather thong, the medallion gave him hope. He hoped for the very power, the very same power denied by the Wizardrium.
