On m’appelle l’Araignée. Je suis l’assassin le plus craint de tout le sud...quand je ne suis pas en train de griller la meilleure viande d’Ashland au Pork Pit, mon restaurant. En tant que sorcière qui domine la pierre, je peux entendre murmurer le moindre gravier sous mes pas ou les vibrations des Appalaches au dessus de moi. Mon pouvoir sur la glace est très pratique aussi pour faire un poignard en cas de besoin. Mais je n’utilise pas mes pouvoirs pour faire mon job sauf quand c’est nécessaire. Appelez ça de la conscience professionnelle.

Maintenant qu’un sorcier qui a le pouvoir de l’air ma doublée et a tué mon mentor, je suis ivre de vengeance. Et j’exterminerai tous ceux qui se dresseront dans mon passage. J’ai peut-être l’air sexy mais je ne suis pas vraiment une gentille fille. C’est bien pourquoi j’ai des problèmes depuis que je suis irrésitiblement attirée par le séduisant Détective Donovan Caine qui accepté de m’aider. La dernière chose dont un tueur froid comme moi a besoin dans un combat de ce genre c’est d’une distraction aussi sexy... surtout si Donovan souhaite presque autant ma mort que mon ennemi.

There be monsters here...

It’s not as great as you’d think, living in a tourist town that’s known as "the most magical place in America". Same boring high school, just twice as many monsters under the bridges and rival Families killing each other for power.

I try to keep out of it. I’ve got my mom’s bloodiron sword and my slightly illegal home in the basement of the municipal library. And a couple of Talents I try to keep quiet, including very light fingers and a way with a lock pick.

But then some nasty characters bring their Family feud into my friend’s pawn shop, and I have to make a call – get involved, or watch a cute guy die because I didn’t. I guess I made the wrong choice, because now I’m stuck putting everything on the line for Devon Sinclair. My mom was murdered because of the Families, and it looks like I’m going to end up just like her...

Gladiator meets Game of Thrones: a royal woman becomes a skilled warrior to destroy her murderous cousin, avenge her family, and save her kingdom in this first entry in a dazzling fantasy epic from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Elemental Assassin series - an enthralling tale that combines magic, murder, intrigue, adventure, and a hint of romance.

In a realm where one's magical power determines one's worth, Lady Everleigh's lack of obvious ability relegates her to the shadows of the royal court of Bellona, a kingdom steeped in gladiator tradition. Seventeenth in line for the throne, Evie is nothing more than a ceremonial fixture, overlooked and mostly forgotten.

But dark forces are at work inside the palace. When her cousin Vasilia, the crown princess, assassinates her mother the queen and takes the throne by force, Evie is also attacked, along with the rest of the royal family. Luckily for Evie, her secret immunity to magic helps her escape the massacre.

Forced into hiding to survive, she falls in with a gladiator troupe. Though they use their talents to entertain and amuse the masses, the gladiators are actually highly trained warriors skilled in the art of war, especially Lucas Sullivan, a powerful magier with secrets of his own. Uncertain of her future - or if she even has one - Evie begins training with the troupe until she can decide her next move.

But as the bloodthirsty Vasilia exerts her power, pushing Bellona to the brink of war, Evie's fate becomes clear: she must become a fearsome gladiator herself . . . and kill the queen.

A star-studded urban fantasy anthology starring bestselling authors Rachel Caine, Jennifer Estep, Kevin Hearne, Seanan McGuire, and Rob Thurman, and including Delilah S. Dawson, Kelly Gay, Mark Henry, Hillary Jacques, Jackie Kessler, Kelly Meding, Allison Pang, Nicole D. Peeler, and Jaye Wells, whose stories explore the creepy, mysterious, and, yes, sometimes magical world of traveling carnivals.

The traveling carnival is a leftover of a bygone era, a curiosity lurking on the outskirts of town. It is a place of contradictions — the bright lights mask the peeling paint; a carnie in greasy overalls slinks away from the direction of the Barker’s seductive call. It is a place of illusion — is that woman’s beard real? How can she live locked in that watery box?

And while many are tricked by sleight of hand, there are hints of something truly magical going on. One must remain alert and learn quickly the unwritten rules of this dark show. To beat the carnival, one had better have either a whole lot of luck or a whole lot of guns — or maybe some magic of one’s own.

Featuring stories grotesque and comical, outrageous and action-packed, Carniepunk is the first anthology to channel the energy and attitude of urban fantasy into the bizarre world of creaking machinery, twisted myths, and vivid new magic.

I am Gwen Frost, and I have a Gypsy gift. It’s called psychometry – that's a fancy way of saying that I see images in my head and get flashes of other people’s memories off almost everything I touch, even guys.

My gift makes me kind of nosy. Okay, okay, maybe a lot nosy--to the point of obsession sometimes. I want to know everything about everyone around me. But even I don't want to know the secrets my friend Paige is hiding or the terrible loss that will send me to a new school – Mythos Academy, where the teachers aren't preparing us for the SATs, but to battle Reapers of Chaos. Now I have no friends and no idea how my gift fits in with all these warrior whiz kids. The only thing I do know is that my life is never, ever going to be the same...

I’m Logan Quinn, the deadliest Spartan warrior at Mythos Academy. At least I was — until the day I almost killed Gwen Frost.

Professor Metis and Nickamedes say that I’m fine, that Loki and the Reapers don’t have a hold on me anymore, but I can’t risk it. I can’t risk hurting Gwen again. So I’m leaving Mythos and going somewhere far, far away.

I know Gwen wonders what’s happening to me, whether I’m safe. I can’t tell her, but this is my story …

A kingdom abandoned by a season. A drought strangling the land. A prince determined to save his people.

When Daric braves the terrifying source of all elements to beg Spring to return to Leathen, she sees him—and comes. But his plea has unintended consequences, leaving Spring trapped in a human body and called by a new name—Rain. He’s changed her existence forever, and Daric’s plight is no different than before, except... now they have each other.

Rain can’t control the weather as she once could, but exile in human form has given her something that eternity as a goddess lacked completely—a companion. Now, years later, the dire drought continues. Both Rain and Daric face unwanted marriages for the good of the kingdom. But life without her prince? Unthinkable. They must break the curse on Leathen.

A race against time and devastating obligations begins for Rain and Daric—and love is a powerful incentive.

Dark romance and the Deep South meet in this collection of eighteen thrilling stories. Set in a lush, steamy world of ceaseless rain, swamps, alligators, overgrown cemeteries, and home-grown magic, these dark and scary, yet pleasurable stories unfold sinister secrets at every turn.
