The Dim Realm Volume I - The Resurrection Tower #1
Publisher: Matt Holgate
Strangers have come to town ... strangers the likes of which Kara and Corin have never seen – dwarves, orcs and more. A small group of townsfolk and these outsiders must come together to combat the darkness plaguing Arrow’s Flight, but the danger is more horrible than they first realized, and bears directly upon mysteries centuries old. As Kara sets out on a quest to quell this ancient evil, she must rely on Corin and a particularly gifted stranger named Tal Stormgren to help her follow the maze of clues that she hopes will lead to an escape – before it's too late.
“The Resurrection Tower lies in wait at the end of a long road, a journey between awake and asleep, life and death ... between the heavens and the hells. It has stood watch through numerous wars on numerous planes. No one knows why. Yet the tower must be understood if this world and others are to be saved.”
Like her sisters Nina and Emily, Sara is enjoying her life as a normal young woman, especially her new role as big sister to the younger children.
So when a dog-fighting ring threatens the peaceful community they have come to love, she and her sisters spring into action once more to shut it down. But once they do, they discover that some of the criminals have friends in very high places.
Now, their family under threat, all the children will band together to protect their home, no matter what that means.

Set in the magical world of Renthia, The Queen of Blood is Sarah Beth Durst’s ambitious entry into adult epic fantasy. With the danger of Peter Brett’s The Warded Man, heart of Naomi Novik’s Uprooted, and lyricism of Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind, this is the first chapter in a series destined to be a classic.
Everything has a spirit: the willow tree with leaves that kiss the pond, the stream that feeds the river, the wind that exhales fresh snow . . .
But the spirits that reside within this land want to rid it of all humans. One woman stands between these malevolent spirits and the end of humankind: the queen. She alone has the magical power to prevent the spirits from destroying every man, woman, and child. But queens are still just human, and no matter how strong or good, the threat of danger always looms.
With the position so precarious, young women are chosen to train as heirs. Daleina, a seemingly quiet academy student, is under no illusions as to her claim to the throne, but simply wants to right the wrongs that have befallen the land. Ven, a disgraced champion, has spent his exile secretly fighting against the growing number of spirit attacks. Joining forces, these daring partners embark on a treacherous quest to find the source of the spirits’ restlessness—a journey that will test their courage and trust, and force them to stand against both enemies and friends to save their land . . . before it’s bathed in blood.
With Charlotte and Simon off being happy newlyweds, Della has resumed her work with The Agency—and Adam is back to helping her when she allows it.

The only way to save her is to enter the sword’s spell world, but the consequences will change Della and Adam forever.This story is intended for readers over the age of 18 due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.
The shocking conclusion to the Moonfire Trilogy.
Lana han Chevonian is one of the world’s brightest minds on the brink of making a huge discovery. There is only one problem: she is stuck as prisoner in the harem of the Aranian king. She could try to escape and run the risk of getting re-captured or getting killed on the very long and difficult road back home to Chevakia, or she could win the favour of the king, beg to be allowed to use the famed library and promise Arania credit for her work.
Meanwhile, war is about to break out between Aranian armies with icefire weapons and Chevakian armies wanting to wipe those weapons off the face of the earth.
Lana’s discovery turns the understanding about icefire on its head, but no one is listening. They’re on course to destroy everything that’s keeping the world alive.
