Wicked Good Witches Books 1-2 (Demon Street Blues, Alpha Knows Best)
by Starla Silver
$0.00, 239 pages, 4.7 out of 5.0 (66 reviews), #12 in > Literature & Fiction > Horror > Occult
Welcome to The Demon Isle, where the supernatural world hides in plain sight.
Tourists want to believe the supernatural is real, and The Demon Isle delivers--from the moment they step off the ferry onto the nostalgia inducing lanterned streets straight off the pages of yesteryear, or wander down foggy cobblestone lane after lane lined with fortune tellers and magic shops, or take a haunted tour of the island in hopes of catching a glimpse of mythical creature belonging to a fantasy world.

Ghosts, vampires, werewolves, faeries, mermaids--the sightings are endless. And it's the perfect cover. Because while tourists bask in the safety and delight of the possibility, the supernatural community is not only real, but thriving. And hiding right under the noses of tourists immersing themselves in the fantasy.

The locals know the truth.
They know the dangers that lurk around dark alleys and foggy beaches.
But they also know who to turn to if they need help.

The Howard Witches.
They've been protecting The Demon Isle and its inhabitants for many generations.

For Melinda Howard, the youngest sibling, dreaming about how people will die is never fun on a good day...but it's her magical inheritance and one thing she cannot escape. Life and love, on the other hand, can wait, because she prefers the safety of her reclusive life and letting her brother's handle the hands-on witching work.

Something Charlie Howard thrives on as the eldest sibling and unspoken leader of their coven. His physical strength and pure daring alone can usually get the job done quick. A job middle sibling, Michael, would prefer to live without as he wants to leave the Island and go to school.

Partly because, today, after tragically losing their parents while on the job, they are just three siblings doing the job that in previous generations was done by twenty or more. And even with Melinda's dreams, Charlie's strength, and Michael's wits, it's often no longer enough and they rely heavily on their mentor, William Wakefield--a four-hundred-year-old vampire who is also a dear family friend and long-time protector of the Howard Witches.

Is it time for the Howard legacy to end?
Hasn't their family sacrificed enough?
Is it time to let someone else take over?
But who would want the job? A Howard Witch living to a ripe old age is a rare thing...William would know as he's watched far too many Howard Witches die too young. And he fears this is not only the last days of the bloodline and the legacy, but the end of his purpose in this life as well.

But when Michael performs a death reading for the local sheriff to assist in a murder investigation, and Melinda has a prophetic dream about someone about to die, and the supernatural world threatens to consume them all and leave the island unprotected...a truth is revealed that will change everything.

The Howard Witches will have to make a choice.
Heed the call and find a way to fulfill their duty, or face a future in which they are no longer protectors of The Demon Isle and let the family legacy, end....

Wicked Good Witches is an episodic supernatural suspense series that's heavy on romance and action and set on an island off the Coast of Maine. Please read in order.

These books are for readers over 18, and are fast paced stories packed with love, action, and magic. Relationships are not always male/female. And these characters really like four letter words.

If you'd enjoy dirty mouthed, sexy witches struggling to balance love, life, and duty, and a bad ass vampire guardian, read on!
*** If you prefer a tamer rating, with milder language and adult situations behind closed doors, please see the sister series, We Witches Three (same story but with a teen friendly rating)

The Invasion of Heaven: Part One of the Newirth Mythology
by Michael B. Koep, Marlene Adelstein
$0.00, 416 pages, 4.6 out of 5.0 (105 reviews), #3 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Fairy Tales
Psychologist Loche Newirth becomes hunted when he sees a painting that opens a window onto the afterlife. An ancient order of men seeking to control the art pursue him across the world, through centuries, into madness and beyond.The first part of Michael B. Koep's The Newirth Mythology-The Invasion of Heaven is mystery, adventure, myth, betrayal, murder and madness. 

Loche Newirth wonders if it was his fall: the fifty foot drop from the rocky cliff to the icy water below. Is this why he has been hallucinating? Or is it because one of his clients is dead, or his mentor has gone mad, or that his wife is leaving him? He can't bring himself to believe what he has been seeing. Insane things like a massive, searching eye. He sees it in the water below the cliff. He sees it in mirrors, on walls: a massive, crystal blue iris and fathomless pupil there in the center of his life, looking at him. 

To find the answer, Loche pens the recent events of his life into a book and leaves the work behind for his mentor Doctor Marcus Rearden to interpret. As Rearden reads he plunges into the harrowing depths of Loche's reality: his loss of a client, the discovery of an unknown past, an ancient conflict over possession of the human condition, the awesome reality of the gods walking among us, and the crimes of humanity invading the hope that lies beyond the grave.

And along the way, Loche tells of unforgettable characters: the torn and manic housewife that teeters on the edge of sanity, and a depressed, swashbuckling swordsman that believes he is over six hundred years old, the stoned and prolific painter and his perilous work he must keep secret, and the beautiful business woman that abandons her life's work for a love she never expected.

Elizabeth Shepherd is a dead woman. Not even her uncanny powers can save her now.

On the run from an eldritch horror and an unfortunate promise, Liz has finally gone too far. Hunted by an otherworldly, shape-stealing dread, she careens across the countryside in a desperate attempt to free herself from a deal gone sour.

Before she knows it, Liz has reneged on yet another promise, one she made to her elusive hedge wizard mentor. He always warned her that using her command over the wind would attract the wrong kind of attention; yet she has few choices. Whether creating compacts with an angelic choir of Watchers, riddle-dueling with one of the wild fae, or standing against a legion of arachnid-wolf nightmares, such things only respect one thing: power.

They certainly don't want to role play with her.

As inhuman miscreations haunt Liz at every turn, she discovers things are far darker than she believed.

It's possible nothing Liz believes about herself is true.

Windslinger is a fantastical urban adventure filled with fast paced action, surprising plot twists, and compelling characters.

Some princesses are only pretty on the outside....

Coralina Corissa, known as “Coco” to her eight sisters, is the fairest princess of a hundred kingdoms. And she knows it. Her beauty has always given her anything she wanted... and any MAN she wanted.

Runa Realm is facing a new threat. Strange bandits, disguised as nobles, are attacking beautiful women to steal their hair. Coralina isn’t concerned. Until Prince Luxley, her favorite (but not only) lover, gets clobbered by a peasant called Gord, who mistakenly assumed the prince was a bandit.

Outraged, Coralina plans to punish the peasant by deliberately breaking his heart. But Gord is nearly blind. For the first time ever, Coralina must rely on more than her looks to ensnare a man. But the harder she flirts, the more Gord seems to hate her. And the more her own heart (and hair) becomes endangered.

The Nine Princesses novels is a series that chronicles the adventures of an unconventional family of princesses, the struggles they face in a kingdom often hostile to their humble origins, and the day-to-day dramas of nine young women whose personalities often clash like swords. Fans of Gail Carson Levine and Shannon Hale would enjoy these princess novels.

˃˃˃ Read an Excerpt:

Luxley filled two goblets with cider. The dark window above the table mirrored the sparkling ballroom and swirling dancers. Coralina patted her curls knowing Luxley would admire them if she did.

“Your hair is divine, Princess Coralina!” said Luxley. “Black as crows yet lustrous as moonlight on a frozen sea.”

Coralina smiled and accepted her goblet. Luxley was scrumptious tonight. Time for a little stroll out of doors. She’d take him to Love Lake and, after feigning reluctance, let him kiss her.

Coralina turned away with a sorrowful sigh.

“Whatever is wrong, my beauty?” said Luxley, right on cue. Coralina looked down at her goblet, tracing the rim with her finger. “Oh... it’s nothing.”

“Dear lady, you must tell me.” Luxley set down his drink to clasp her hand in both of his. Coralina blinked away tears she didn’t have. “I - I was thinking... how lovely it would be to walk in the moonlight.”

“Why don’t we!” Luxley cried joyously.

Coralina shook her head. “It’s too perilous. There are rumors of dangerous bandits in the kingdom. Maelyn forbade going out after dark.”

“But my precious princess, I will come with you!” said Luxley. “And all the world’s villains shall not touch you while I am near.”

Coralina lifted large eyes to his face. “Well... if you promise to keep VERY close to me.”
