Summary

"Even if a magician's powers surface of their own accord, he will soon be dead if he does not gain the knowledge of how to control them." 
 
Alone among all the novices in the Magicians' Guild, only Sonea comes from lowly beginnings. Yet she has won powerful allies—including Lord Dannyl, newly promoted to Guild Ambassador. But Dannyl must now depart for the Elyne court, leaving Sonea at the mercy of the lies and malicious rumors her enemies are busy spreading . . . until the High Lord Akkarin steps in. The price of Akkarin's support is dear, however, because Sonea, in turn, must protect his mysteries—and a secret that could lead a young novice mage deep into the darkness. 
Meanwhile, Dannyl's first order to resume High Lord Akkarin's long-abandoned research into ancient magical knowledge is setting him on an extraordinary journey fraught with unanticipated peril—as he moves ever-closer to a future both wondrous . . . and terrible.

    This bundle includes books 4 - 6 of the Shifter Squad series. 
    Rogue Wolf: 
    On the heels of completing their latest mission, Lexi and Reece sense another werewolf hunting in the same area. One glance into his mind tells them that there is something very wrong with him. When a body is found in the woods nearby, their intuition is proven to be correct. The shifter has turned rogue and it is their job to hunt him down. 
    Mark relocates the Squad to their base in West Virginia. He begins digging into a series of deaths that have taken place during the past few years. It quickly becomes apparent that it wasn’t an accident that they crossed paths with the unstable shifter. 
    When a camper mysteriously goes missing just a few hours away from their compound, Lexi and Reece are sent to investigate. Lexi has a feeling that Mark knows more about the rogue wolf than he is willing to admit. When their two missions unexpectedly collide, they are caught in a trap that could end up changing everything forever. 
    Corpse Thieves: 
    With the vampire virus slowly but surely working its way through Lexi and Reece, they must soon face down the being that has infected them or risk losing their souls to darkness. While on their way to confront Lexi’s mother, the squad is called away to investigate a slew of missing corpses. 
    Reece has his own problems to face. He is torn between his duty to his team and the lifelong dream that is now being offered to him. While he can postpone the inevitable, he will eventually have to make a decision. Not even he knows what his final choice will be. 
    It doesn’t take long before their newest mission takes a turn for the worse. Lexi is confronted with an awful truth about herself that she has been trying her hardest to deny. Her survival depends on tapping a talent that could cause her own team to turn against her if they learn of its existence. 
    Snake Charmer: 
    Defying the cycle of the moon that binds all shape shifters, Lexi transforms into her alter ego in an attempt to flee from her sorrow and anguish. Little does she know that no matter how far or fast she runs, she can’t escape from her grief at being abandoned by her mate. 
     
    Locked in her werewolf form, it takes a catastrophe to force her to become human again. Stepping back into her normal life isn’t easy, but Lexi must set aside her personal problems when one of her friends goes missing during their next mission. The team needs her to step up and become an alpha in deed rather than just in name. 
     
    Even during her prolonged time spent as a werewolf, the vampirism has been insidiously spreading through her. The time is coming when Lexi will reach the point of no return. Soon, she will become the very thing that the Shifter Squad hunts down and destroys.

    Ynyr was a third male, and while he was a fit and worthy warrior, he had always known that no female would ever Join with him. Too many looked down on his family because of his mother’s refusal to leave his manno. He knew Ull would be able to overcome this because he was a first male and would one day be a Lord. Maybe even Vali, since he was a second male but neither Ynyr nor his younger brother Zev would ever be acceptable to a female. The most they could hope for was to serve their House with honor but that all changed with the arrival of the females from Earth. 
    Abby's life had not been an easy one, especially after the death of her family when she was sixteen, but she had thought things were finally looking up. She was a year away from achieving her dream of becoming a teacher. Soon she would be making a difference in the lives of children others had given up on. That all changed when she was abducted by the Tornians. 
    Ynyr and Abby came together in the most unusual of ways, but that was just the beginning of their unique relationship. Together they had to do something no other Lord and Lady had to do. They had to take a House that had been destroyed by deceit and evil and turn it back into the worthy and respected House that it had once been. 
    Will the secrets left behind by Bertos and Risa tear them apart? Or will it be Abby's secret and Ynyr's reaction to it that does?

    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.
