Book four of the Indigo Skies series...
Sharp pain jolted me awake.
I must have hazed out again for a minute, because he was crouched in front of me, his hand on the hilt of the knife still sticking out of my shoulder. His face was in sharper focus than ever, concern etching his brow. I unclenched my teeth, or what was left of them, & let out a slow breath.
"Not dead yet then?" he muttered.
While his sister's away, the wolf will play… until the claws come out.
Half-werewolf Logan is helping his sister with an investigation, but it's just a distraction from sexy shifter Jenna & her refusal to commit to their relationship. Surely she'll change her mind if he catches those responsible for abducting her nekojin brethren?
Except, Jenna doesn't trust him to crack the case by himself.
Dauntless, Logan figures solving the crime & saving the day will win her love & respect, but he has no idea why these monsters are taking the shifter women or exactly how deep into the dark moonlighting as a detective will drag him…
Will this teeth clenching case finally show them all what he's made of? Or will the werewolves responsible tear him apart?
Logan's dying to find out…
I don’t recall if I saw my first gunman in my childhood nightmares or on my childhood streets.
There were plenty in both and they looked very much like each other.
So begins Reggie Chamberlain-King’s introduction to The Black Dreams, a thrilling and compelling collection of specially commissioned stories that explore the emotional geography of growing up and living in Northern Ireland.
The fourteen stories gathered here criss-cross coast, border and city as they map a ‘strange’ territory of in-between states and unstable realities in which understanding is unreliable. Obsessions, death and rebirth, violence, sexuality, retribution and apocalypse are all part of the rich fabric of The Black Dreams.
Bringing together some of Northern Ireland’s finest writers, along with some of the best new talents, The Black Dreams celebrates and extends the rich tradition of the weird, surreal and dream-like in Northern Irish writing. It is also a powerful act of imagining and storytelling – a vibrant, vivid and exhilarating exploration of a world we cannot, or choose not, to see.

'A dark, claustrophobic read' – T. Kingfisher, author of Paladin's Grance
You can't see them. But they can see you.
This forest isn't charted on any map. Every car breaks down at its treeline. Mina's is no different. Left stranded, she is forced into the dark woodland only to find a woman shouting, urging Mina to run to a concrete bunker. As the door slams behind her, the building is besieged by screams.
Mina finds herself in a room with a wall of glass, and an electric light that activates at nightfall, when the Watchers come above ground. These creatures emerge to observe their captive humans and terrible things happen to anyone who doesn't reach the bunker in time.
Afraid and trapped among strangers, Mina is desperate for answers. Who are the Watchers and why are these creatures keeping them imprisoned, keen to watch their every move?
Perfect for fans of Francine Toon, Paul Tremblay and Andrew Michael Hurley.
A chilling medieval ghost story, retold by bestselling historian Dan Jones. Published in a beautiful small-format hardback, perfect as a Halloween read or a Christmas gift.
One winter, in the dark days of King Richard II, a tailor was riding home on the road from Gilling to Ampleforth. It was dank, wet and gloomy; he couldn't wait to get home and sit in front of a blazing fire.
Then, out of nowhere, the tailor is knocked off his horse by a raven, who then transforms into a hideous dog, his mouth writhing with its own innards. The dog issues the tailor with a warning: he must go to a priest and ask for absolution and return to the road, or else there will be consequences...
First recorded in the early fifteenth century by an unknown monk, The Tale of the Tailor and the Three Dead Kings was transcribed from the Latin by the great medievalist M.R. James in 1922. Building on that tradition, now bestselling historian Dan Jones retells this medieval ghost story in crisp and creepy prose.
