Summary

The Adventure Continues...
 
A Christmas Aether - Three brand new short stories from the universe of The Infernal Aether. "With the end of the terror of The Infernal Aether, surely humanity is safe at last?" In A Christmas Aether, Augustus Potts, beaten and bloody amidst the demon-infested London East End, is visited by three familiar spirits who reveal terrifying insights into the past, present and future. Can Augustus save himself before it is too late? In The Ballad of William Morley, a zealous police officer struggles with personal loss in the midst of increasing unrest resulting from the Aether's demonic invasion. Can he retain his sense of right and wrong while everything crumbles around him? Finally, the newly rediscovered scientific / occult document The Potts Demonology provides valuable insights into the changes which took place in the late 19th Century, as well as the creatures which forced this chaos onto the world. This book brings together three new stories following on from the events of The Infernal Aether and foreshadows the struggles to come in the next instalment: The Demon Inside.

    For the past year, sleep paralysis has been little more than a thorn in Natalia's side. That is, until she meets Korin, a strange but beautiful alien being who makes her question everything she knows about the universe.  
     
    Life-changing love almost feels like an invasion.
     
    I won’t bore you with details about the mysterious medical issues I’ve had over the last year;
     
    the sudden severe allergies to food and medication, the sleep paralysis. All I’ll tell you is that they turned my life upside down.
     
    But I’m a rational person.
     
    Naturally, I assumed that my mind was playing tricks on me when I saw the strange figures standing over me.
     
    But it felt so freakishly real;
     
    especially one face in particular that always stayed with me long after I woke up.
     
    Something about him always drew me in and I knew he was different. He made me feel different.
     
    All my life, romance has felt like something that was reserved for everyone but me. I’d accepted that the only love in my life would be experienced through my artwork.
     
    Now I’m questioning everything I know about myself, about reality, and especially about love.

    Welcome to a safe and secure new world, where beauty is bought and sold, and freedom is the ultimate crime 
    The Registry saved the country from collapse, but stability has come at a price. In this patriotic new America, girls are raised to be brides, sold at auction to the highest bidder. Boys are raised to be soldiers, trained to fight and never question orders. 
    Nearly eighteen, beautiful Mia Morrissey excitedly awaits the beginning of her auction year. But a warning from her married older sister raises dangerous questions. Now, instead of going up on the block, Mia is going to escape to Mexico—and the promise of freedom. 
    All Mia wants is to control her own destiny—a brave and daring choice that will transform her into an enemy of the state, pursued by powerful government agents, ruthless bounty hunters, and a cunning man determined to own her . . . a man who will stop at nothing to get her back.

    Distantly upon the horizon, bejewelled light shone like stars; tantalising, inviting.
     
    Then the palace-in-glass was gone, fading away into the velvet night like a snuffed lamp.
     
    Between the sands and the starlight, ancient powers rise, and the oldest of tales becomes new. 
     
    An old sorcerer travels the starlight bazaars: cursed and magic-blighted, he has glass where his heart should be.
     
    A half-jinni enchantress seeks her missing son: daughter of a fallen king, hers is a great and daunting power.
     
    A trio of camels walks the sands: loyal sisters in service, there is more to their past than meets the eye.  
     
    What unites these tales (and many more) is a marvel of sorcery and beauty: a great palace of ensorcelled glass, glimpsed only under the stars, and vanishing with the dawn...
     
    The third Wonder Tale from Charlotte E. English combines the magic and colour of ancient stories with her trademark wit and whimsy. A fresh journey into the strange lands of fairytales.
