Summary

In a world where motherhood can be a crime, a woman risks everything to defy those in power . . . Ten years after the world took drastic action to rein in overpopulation, Elspeth suspects she is pregnant—illegally—after a brief, alcohol-fuelled fling with Nick. Even procuring a test to confirm it would be risky. As Elspeth tries desperately to keep her condition hidden from the authorities, a female detective becomes convinced something illicit is going on—and tries to resuscitate her own troubled career by pursuing this lawbreaker. But behind the scenes, two people are determined to come to Elspeth’s aid. One is someone close to her who has a secret. The other is someone she would never have expected. Now, as danger closes in, how far will they go to keep Elspeth—and her unborn baby—safe?

    n this world, steam and electricity are the favored sources of power. Science has taken the place of religion, while magic is unknown by all but peculiar outcasts. But the border between reality and the underworld here is extremely thin. Thankfully, the adepts of scientific knowledge have found success holding back the onslaught of infernal creatures. Electricity is stronger than magic, but even it is not all-powerful.

He has inherited a morbid talent allowing him to manifest other peoples' fears and phobias with the force of his imagination. Dealing with his own nightmares turned out to be not nearly as simple, though. Eventually, Leopold got free of them, but someone clever and very powerful has now drawn him into a dangerous game where the puppet cannot be distinguished from the puppet master. Winning is not in the cards. Defeat will end with a descent into the abyss of hell. Run? The snare is already drawn too tight...

    "Know, oh prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the Sons of Aryas, there was an Age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles beneath the stars—Nemedia, Ophir, Brythunia, Hyperborea, Zamora with its dark-haired women and towers of spider-haunted mystery, Zingara with its chivalry, Koth that bordered on the pastoral lands of Shem, Stygia with its shadow-guarded tombs, Hyrkania whose riders wore steel and silk and gold. But the proudest kingdom of the world was Aquilonia, reigning supreme in the dreaming west. Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen- eyed,sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandalled feet."

    Working at a dive bar on the outskirts of Plymouth Falls, Amber Ferlund can't fall any further. But when the darkness inside her rears its head yet again, driving her out into the cold darkness of a northern winter, she realizes there's always one more level of hell. 
    Kasperi and his fellow bear shifters have been dispatched to investigate reports of magic being used in Plymouth Falls. Now, hot on the heels of the rogue mage, he readies his weapon and prepares to rid the world of yet another enemy. But he stays his hand at the sight of the beautiful but beleaguered woman, alone in the forest, moments from freezing to death. She's no threat to him, is she? 
    His fellow shifters disagree, but Kasperi knows they're wrong. This woman needs aid, not the blade of his sword. Together, they must teach her how to control her gifts, to use them for good before they corrupt her completely. Nearby wait his former fellows, ready to take her head for the slightest mistake, and deeper in the shadows lurks a stronger enemy, one who recognizes Amber's true potential. But, if anyone wants to get to Amber, they'll have to go through Kasperi first. 
    Contains mature themes.

    I thought I understood power. 
    My parents taught me that magic attracts equal danger, and everything I've seen since becoming a demon contractor confirms it. I've witnessed how power twists and corrupts—and I've tasted power no human should wield. 
    I thought I knew greed. 
    Ambition and avarice drove my family into hiding. My parents died for someone else's greed. I've never hunted anything in my life, but now I'm hunting their killer—with my demon's help. 
    I thought I'd seen evil. 
    But with each step closer to my parents' murderer, I'm uncovering a different sort of evil, piece by hidden piece. I've stumbled into an insidious web that silently, secretly ensnares everything it touches. My demon and I came as the hunters . . . but I think we might be the prey.
