Summary

A Magical World. A Stolen Birthright. A Forbidden Love. 
 
16-year-old Aurora Darlington is an orphan. Mistreated by her adopted family and bullied at school, she dreams of running away and being free. But when she is kidnapped and dragged through a portal into a magical world, suddenly her old life doesn't seem so bad. 
Avalonia is a dangerous land ruled by powerful mages and a cruel, selfish queen who will do anything to control all seven kingdoms--including killing anyone who stands in her way. Thrust headlong into this new, magical world, Aurora's arrival sets plans in motion that threaten to destroy all she holds dear. 
With the help of a young fae, a magical pegasus, and a handsome mage, Aurora journeys across Avalonia to learn the truth about her past and unleash the power within herself. Kingdoms collide as a complicated web of political intrigue and ancient magic lead Aurora to unravel a shocking secret that will change her life forever.

    Many on Gor do not believe the great ship of Tersites, the lame, scorned, half-blind, half-mad shipwright, originally of Port Kar, exists. Surely it is a matter of no more than legend. In the previous book, however, Swordsmen of Gor, we learned that the great ship, commissioned by unusual warriors for a mysterious mission, was secretly built in the northern forests and brought down the Alexandra to Thassa, the sea, beginning her voyage to the “World’s End,” hazarding waters beyond the “farther islands” from which no ship had returned.   Rediscover this brilliantly imagined world where men are masters and women live to serve their every desire.  Mariners of Gor is the 30th book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    From USA TODAY Bestselling Fantasy/Paranormal author, W.J. May comes a new kind of vampire shifter series. Get ready to be blown away!  
     
    No Vampire, or werewolf, is safe. 
     
    The future is not a safe place. 
    Fleeing the Archon Jeremiah’s rage and his purge of Brooklyn, the vampire Tay Maslov has sought aid from neighbouring Archon Bethania of Manhattan, decadent, nihilistic Bethania. The forever-young makes a deal with the young Feral; be her spy and all will be well. Perhaps she will even regain her place at an Archon’s unholy side. But with the Shadow War between the Shifters and the Elders heating up, Kaiden and Tay find themselves dragged into a twisting game of play and counter-play, as the different factions threaten to tear the city apart…

    In what constitutes a prequel to Mariners of Gor, we learn that a mysterious cargo, suitably disguised, was covertly placed on the great ship, a cargo that might influence the outcome of the aforementioned gamble. One narrator is a young woman, once a Miss Margaret Alyssa Cameron, and the other is an individual whose name, for reasons that will become obvious, is withheld in the manuscript. It does seem clear, however, that the individual referred to was somehow instrumental in bringing the former Miss Cameron to the height of a large slave block in the coastal city of Brundisium, one of Gor’s major ports.   Rediscover this brilliantly imagined world where men are masters and women live to serve their every desire.  Smugglers of Gor is the 32nd book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    "A hard-charging opener to a promising, if bloody, space-opera series." —KIRKUS
    Centuries after Earth was rendered an uninhabitable wasteland, humanity was forced from its homeworld and founded the Kepler Circuit, a string of colonies throughout the solar system. These settlements provide resources to the remnants of humankind, the most important resource being the newly discovered element—Gravitum—found only in the Earth’s unstable mantle.
    But a powerful religious faction known as the New Earth Tribunal has risen to preside over most of the Circuit. Though there is barely a faction left to challenge them, a string of attacks on the Tribunal’s freighters causes them to suspect their mortal enemies, the Ceresians, of foul play.
    Tasked with solving the problem is Sage Volus: Tribunal Executor. Spy.
    Sage quickly infiltrates the ranks of a roguish, Ceresian mercenary named Talon Rayne, seeking to discover the truth behind the attacks, but the longer she works amidst Talon and his squad, the more she finds her faith in the Tribunal tested.
    While her quest for answers only unearths more questions, a new threat is on the rise, and it plans to bring down the Tribune once and for all.
