    "Madmax meets Lord of the Rings" — Goodreads.com
    
    A magical world, once at the height of technology, has crashed and burned. Levitating cars lay abandoned, floating cities lie in ruin, and the tyrant Wizards who ruled with iron fists are nowhere to be seen.
    
    Awakening from the dead for the third time is a man with scrambled memories, driven at first by one desire: revenge. As he ventures through the terrifying wasteland with his mana-pistol and enchanted short-sword, a past starts creeping into his mind, but is it his?
    
    Written in first person, present tense, The Wizard Killer is written in a "tv-show style" set of pulse-pounding episodes, each with their own micro-arc, that come together in a larger season. You'll find yourself tearing through the book in no time, and snatching Season Two.
    
    “…an intense action movie-style romp through a wonderfully detailed fantasy world. I freaking LOVED this story! I loved the cinematic feel, I loved the action scenes, I loved the characters. It is like Harry Potter meets Die Hard” — M Bybee, WereBooks.org, 5 Stars
    
    "...an imaginative and compelling series that is quite difficult to stop reading. Dreece knows exactly how to build and then neatly tie up each episode, while leaving the reader wanting more.... highly recommended." — Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite, 5 Stars

    For Gidion Keep, hunting vampires is easy—it’s high school that might kill him. 
    
    Hunting vampires is a Keep family tradition. Dad quit the business over a decade ago when Mom was killed, so Grandpa has been teaching Gidion—in secret—to take up the hunt. As Gidion closes in on the local coven, however, he discovers their evil plans to kill off a student and a teacher. 
    
    To complicate matters, the vampires know they're being hunted and they're determined to kill Gidion and everyone he's protecting, no matter what it takes. For Gidion, the odds are immense and his first test as a vampire hunter may be his last, but he will have help: one of his best friends might be the key to finding the vampires’ lair and finishing them once and for all...if he can be trusted.
    
    GIDION'S HUNT delivers a fast-paced thriller with a young hero whose deadliest weapon isn't a wooden stake but his wits and a lot of luck.

    When life gives you brownies, make coffee. 
    Angharad ‘Harry’ Russo has had a busy week.  She’s fended off a swarm of pixies, battled blood-thirsty redcaps and put an end to a maniacal Fae prince hell-bent on eradicating the entire werewolf population.  She’s also decided to open a coffee shop.  Is it too much to ask for things to settle down so her life can go back to normal? 
    Apparently it is.  As if being metaphysically bound to Cian Nash, the most aggravating yet desirable man she’s ever met, isn’t enough, Harry’s just found out that the Magister, the biggest, baddest vampire around, is her father.  Talk about your daddy issues! 
    Harry just wants to concentrate on getting the coffee shop open, but between the freaky ghosts that keep haunting her and rogue vampires terrorizing the city, it looks like normal is a thing of the past. 
    This is book three of the Harry Russo Diaries. It is a stand-alone adventure with no cliffhanger. Intended for a mature audience.
