Summary

“The Queen of paranormal romance.”—USA Today 
A classic from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan, Lair of the Lion is a  dark-edged and enthralling take on the beloved “Beauty and the Beast” fairy tale. It is the breathtaking story of a beautiful, penniless aristocrat who promises herself to the handsome, powerful, mysterious, and not wholly human Don Nicolai DeMarco in order to free her imprisoned brother—even though legend has it that the Don will destroy any woman he weds. Perhaps best known for her bestselling “Dark” series, featuring the haunted and mesmerizing immortal Carpathians, Feehan is arguably the biggest name in paranormal historical romance—and any reader who loves passionate love stories tinged with the supernatural should enter the Lair of the Lion.

    What reviewers are saying:  
     
    “The action sequences in this book were amazing. The ending will leave you reeling. This story is incredible and Jennifer Quintenz is an amazingly talented author... This book is an absolute MUST read! You have strong characters, teenagers who are amazing in their normality in a paranormal life, and a father who would die for his adopted daughter, and an adopted daughter who is “supposed” to be evil but is the most caring teen I have seen in years. This book is not only a successful sequel but an incredible addition to any library. I can honestly admit that if I had book 3 in my hands when it was 2am and I’d finished this one I would have grabbed it up and continued this saga.” – Condygurl of the “Recent Reads” book blog  
     
    “I am a fan of the genre, and really enjoyed the first book in the trilogy. This one beats it - Quintenz neatly sidesteps the lull problem of middle-of-trilogy books, creating a page-turning web of self-contained plots while also continuing to flesh out the mythology of the series and set up the conflict in the concluding book. I read "Incubus" extremely rapidly, dying to find out what happened next, and propelled smoothly along by the polished, vivid prose. I'm going to start reading the third part immediately; Quintenz just keeps getting better.” – Daniel Maidman, review on Amazon.com  
     
    Incubus (Daughters of Lilith: Book 2)  
     
    Braedyn Murphy used to think nothing important ever happened in her sleepy town of Puerto Escondido. But that was before she learned she was a descendent of Lilith, the mother of all demons. Now Braedyn fights to protect humanity from the Lilitu - the beautiful, souls-stealing daughters of Lilith.  
     
    As she fights the Lilitu, Braedyn must also fight her growing love for her boyfriend Lucas - because even a simple kiss could end his life. Their only ray of hope is an angel’s offer to make Braedyn human, but it’s an offer she can’t accept until the world is safe from the Lilitu.  
     
    Braedyn knows she’s a key player in this ancient war... but she’s not ready to believe she just might be humanity’s best hope of surviving the final battle for Earth.  
     
    Praise for "Thrall" (Daughters of Lilith: Book 1)  
     
    "Before you even start this review, put down anything you are doing and go read Thrall. It's AMAZING! BREATHTAKING! Engaging and smart, Thrall leaves you speechless!"  
    - Savannah, Books With Bite  
     
    "The writing style is so smooth, yet gripping. Add some good characters, well-paced story and you have something that I like. No, not like. Love... No surprise that “Thrall” gets full five stars and the highest recommendations I can give."  
    - Linda, The Fantasy Librarian  
     
    "How do I even begin to put all the crazy, gushy, ramblings in my brain about this book onto paper?!? Where to even begin?....This book is a MUST read!"

    The #1 Bestselling series! 
    
    THE WEIGHT OF HONOR is book #3 in Morgan Rice’s bestselling epic fantasy series KINGS AND SORCERERS (which begins with RISE OF THE DRAGONS, a free download)! 
    
    In THE WEIGHT OF HONOR, Kyra finally meets her cryptic uncle, and is shocked to discover he is not the man she expected. She embarks on a period of training which will test her stamina and her frustration, as she soon encounters the limits of her power. Unable to summon her dragon, unable to search deep within, and feeling an urgency to help in her father’s wars, Kyra doubts if she will ever become the warrior she thought she was. And when she meets a mysterious boy, more powerful than her, deep in the forest, she wonders what her future really has in store for her.
    
    Duncan must descend the peaks of Kos with his new army and, vastly outnumbered, launch a risky invasion on the capital. If he wins, waiting behind its ancient walls, he knows, will be the old king and his nest of nobles and aristocrats, all with their own agendas, all of them as quick to betray as they are to embrace. Unifying Escalon may, indeed, be harder than freeing it.
    
    Alec, in Ur, must tap his unique skills in the forge to aid the resistance if they have any chance of defending against the looming Pandesian invasion. He is awestruck when he encounters Dierdre, the strongest girl he has ever meet. The time she has a chance to make a stand against Pandesia, and as she bravely faces off, she who wonders if her father and his men will have her back this time.
    
    Merk finally enters the tower of Ur, and is stunned by what he discovers. Initiated into its strange codes and rules, he meets his fellow Watchers, the toughest warriors he has ever encountered, and he finds that earning their respect will not be easy. With an invasion looming, they must all prepare the tower; yet even all its secret passageways may not keep them safe from the betrayal lurking from within.
    
    Vesuvius leads his Troll nation across a vulnerable Escalon, devastating the land, while Theos, enraged at what becomes of his son, is on a rampage himself, and will not stop until all of Escalon is aflame.
    
    With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, THE WEIGHT OF HONOR is a sweeping saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, destiny, monsters and dragons. It is a story of love and broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is fantasy at its finest, inviting us into a world that will live with us forever, one that will appeal to all ages and genders. 
    
    Book #4 in KINGS AND SORCERERS will be published soon. 
    
     “If you thought that there was no reason left for living after the end of the Sorcerer’s Ring series, you were wrong. Morgan Rice has come up with what promises to be another brilliant series, immersing us in a fantasy of trolls and dragons, of valor, honor, courage, magic and faith in your destiny. Morgan has managed again to produce a strong set of characters that make us cheer for them on every page.…Recommended for the permanent library of all readers that love a well-written fantasy.”

    “A YA Mad Max—thrilling and deep, with richly drawn characters and spot-on pacing. With the sequel every bit as good as the predecessor, Dyer’s Untamed Series is a must-read for dystopian fans.” 
    T.A. Maclagan, author of They Call Me Alexandra Gastone 
    After the terrible battle against the Enhanced Ones, Seven and Corin find themselves on the run. With the Enhanced closing in, Seven knows they need to find other people on their side. So, when the opportunity arises to join the Zharat, one of the last surviving Untamed tribes, it seems like the perfect solution. 
    But the Zharat lifestyle is a far cry from what Seven’s used to. With their customs dictating that she must marry into their tribe, and her relationship with Corin breaking down, Seven knows she has to do something before it’s too late. But that’s easier said than done in a tribe where going against the rules automatically results in death. 
    And, with the Enhanced still out there, nowhere is truly safe for the Untamed–least of all for the most powerful Seer in the world…and Seven soon discovers how far people will go to ensure she’s on their side in the War of Humanity. 
    Battling against the emerging web of lies, manipulation, and danger, Seven must remember who she was meant to be. Her life has never been more at stake. Nor has humanity itself.

    Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s novel Diving Into The Wreck spawned a universe so vast that one novel can’t contain it.  The Spires of Denon doesn’t involve Boss or her crew.  Instead, this powerful short novel follows Meklos Verr, hired to guard an archeological dig near the mysterious Spires of Denon.  There Verr encounters the prickly Gabrielle Reese who heads the dig, and he meets some cave divers who aren’t quite what they seem.  Verr knows that someone wants to harm the dig, but he isn’t sure if the attack will come from outside the tall mountain range or from the group of archeologists within.  Verr must figure out the threat before it destroys him, his crew, and the beautiful Spires of Denon. 
     “... a story of exploration of an artifact on an alien world, a bit reminiscent of the sort of story that Jack McDevitt writes.” —Eyrie.org

    “The Spires makes for a very good read.” —SFRevue 
     “Compellingly human and technically absorbing, the suspense builds to fevered intensity, culminating in an explosive yet plausible conclusion.”
