Kate Dawson Thrillers Book Tour & Giveaway

Intimate Bondage
Kate Dawson Thrillers Book #1
by John L. Flynn
Genre: Mystery, Crime Thriller
 
Someone has a fetish for murder.

Detective Kate Dawson is willing to go undercover to catch
a serial killer.
But this time, undercover may be exactly what the killer wants.
A rich, politically connected CEO dies in his private dungeon on a
foggy San Fran night–beaten and castrated by a mysterious sex worker
he hired. Detective Kate Dawson and her partner are assigned the
case. Their only lead is a provocative email from “Crystal Rose”
and an IP address at the University of San Francisco.
Before long, Kate’s on the trail of a serial killer who uses the seedy
underworld of porn shops, Internet sex sites, and S&M clubs to
target victims. She knows the only way to catch the killer is to
become part of that world.
John Flynn is the Hugo-nominated author of multiple non-fiction titles
including Cinematic Vampires: The Living Dead on Film and War of the
Worlds: From Wells to Spielberg.
In 1997, John switched gears from writing and literature to study
psychology, and earned a degree as a clinical psychologist. Today,
John lives in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and is a dean at Broward
College. Intimate Bondage is his first published novel in the Kate
Dawson series.
 
 
Architects of Armageddon
Kate Dawson Thrillers #2
 
Someone is hell-bent on world destruction…
Inspector Kate Dawson is called to investigate a mass murder; a call that will
change her life, and possibly the whole world—forever.


Certain parents have been directed to put their children to death. They
believe they are the Chosen Ones, destined by God to inherit the
Earth. The charismatic leader of End Times Ministries, whose grand
plan includes stoking the fires of Armageddon, has ordered
parishioners to close ranks and prepare for a holy war.
Kate Dawson knows this is not God’s will, but that of a dangerous,
diabolical mind that controls the lives of his people. “They plan
to start a war!”
Nearly a million people live in the San Francisco Bay area,” Senator
Santiago said.
That’s a lot of lives that would be lost, but nowhere near the hundreds of
millions of lives lost in a global war, and the starvation, and
sickness, and disease that follows.”
So, you’re saying, the Doomsday clock is ticking?” Kate asked,
already sensing the answer.
It’s five minutes to midnight . . .”

 

Katewould have been the first one to confess that she didn’t know a
whole lot about politics and religion—but she did know there was a
group of fanatics out there who were determined to move the hands of
the clock closer to midnight, and it was her duty to stop them.
 
 
Murder on Air Force One
Kate Dawson Thrillers #3
 
Murder on Air Force One When Inspector Kate Dawson is called in the wee
hours of the morning, little did she know what would be waiting for
her on the tarmac of San Francisco International Airport. Air Force
One has landed with a corpse in the lavatory—Madame President and
the First Man were on board with a slew of reporters and other
presidential personnel. It seems someone enjoyed kinky foreplay, like
having their oxygen supply limited, a gasper. It just went too far…or
did someone else take advantage and finish her off? International
politics, conspiracies, affairs, cover-ups, and all involving the
First Family…

Terror at G-20
Kate Dawson Thrillers #4
 
Terror at G-20 (Fall 2017) by John L. Flynn is the fourth book in The
Kate Dawson Thrillers. Someone has a fetish for the Asian sex
trade… From what begins as the simple murder of a sex worker,
Inspector Kate Dawson follows the clues to human trafficking and
ultimately the Asian sex trade. Then, as the date of the G-20 Summit
in San Francisco draws closer, Dawson struggles to connect the lives
of five Asian women, who have presumably disappeared in Chinatown,
with that of a mad North Korean Generals master plan of bringing
about economic chaos in the West and his nuclear submarine playing
hide-and-go-seek with fishermen in the Bay. As world leaders and
economists converge on the annual summit, Dawson must prevent terror
from breaking out at the G-20.

Heart of Time Book Tour & Giveaway

Heart of Time
Ruined Heart, Book 1
by Sky MacKinnon
Genre: Fantasy, Lesbian Romance
For Eona, manipulating time is second
nature. It gives her an edge in her dramatic circus performances, but
it also separates her from the other artists in her troupe. She has
always known that her unique kind of magic could make her a target,
but she couldn’t have prepared for being kidnapped, manipulated and
imprisoned by a megalomaniac sorcerer.
In order to figure out what he wants
from her, she needs to explore her own magic, the bond she feels with
a mythical creature, and the feelings she has for a certain beautiful
elven woman.
There are about twenty illustrations
in the book, drawn by artists from all over the world.

“A peryton! Of all the magical beasts there are, this is the most elusive, the most mythical of them all! I didn’t think they existed! There are a few legends and tales, conflicting and inconsistent, yet they tell of a beast combining the physical features of a stag and a bird. Never did I think that this bird might be an elvedritsch!”

Lassadar’s voice was full of awe and wonder. Inside, I agreed with him. The little thing was astonishing.

At the sound of Lassadar’s voice, he opened his big eyes and looked up at us. First, he turned his head to the man opposite of me, then he shook his head slightly and turned to me. The huge brown eyes looked straight at me. I stared back. I saw an intelligence waiting behind those watery pupils. This peryton was not simply a beast like any other. It was more than that, though I could not say what brought me to that conclusion.

His look was firm and steady, and when I cautiously smiled at him, he inclined his head.

Hello.

Skye MacKinnon is a bestselling author
who tells stories about science for a living – but at night she
writes fiction, mainly fantasy. When she’s not writing, she’s out and
about with her camera, or spends time with mythical creatures and the
odd vampire living in her kindle. Usually, there’s tea and cake
involved.
She lives in Scotland with her two
overly spoilt house rabbits and a few hundred self-obsessed
characters constantly asking her to tell their stories. One day she
will. Promise.

So Near the Horizon Blog Tour

The No. 1 Bestseller from Germany – based on a true story! A story of true love …

 

 

Genre: NA Contemporary (based on a true story)

Release Date: September 6th 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summary:

Seventeen-year-old Jessica has an uncomplicated life and a promising future. Leaving the house one evening, she has no idea that she’s about to meet the love of her life – or that her entire understanding of the world is about to change. And before long, she’s going to face a decision that will shape her forever…

In ‘So Near the Horizon’ Jessica Koch describes a life lived somewhere between hope and fear, confronting true events from her own past with raw honesty and frank reflection – and exploring more than one difficult subject along the way.

A story of deep love. A story of trust, courage, pain, despair, and the strength to let go. A true story.

 

Only $0.99 on Amazon!

A Note from the Author:

I first committed the story of my love for Danny to paper all the way back in 2003. I wasn’t trying to become an author—I just thought writing would help me work through some of the emotional burden I was carrying around. I wrote the manuscript with a typewriter and sent copies to two publishing houses, although without any serious interest in their response. Which made the contract I was offered all the more surprising: someone wanted to publish my story.
So what did I do? I turned it down!
The idea of the whole world knowing my far-too-personal story frightened me so much that I burned the manuscript—in a huge fire in my parents’ garden, a fire that had just finished consuming all my photos of me and Danny. I never managed to burn the photos I wasn’t in, though, and I saved his letters and poems as well, packing them carefully away in a box in the basement until I was ready to close the book on the subject for good.
In 2010—at age 28—I moved to a new city, got married, and had a son. One day, I mentioned to my husband in passing that I’d once written a book and been offered a publishing contract. He asked more questions, and what had started as a short anecdote about Danny became a week-long report. Noticing that I clearly hadn’t come to terms with a few parts of the story, my husband advised me to write it all out (again). From that moment on, I spent every free minute writing.
For weeks, I ran around carrying paper and a pencil, confused, caught up in a completely different time. My notes developed into a highly emotional novel. Purely out of curiosity, I sent the manuscript to five literary agencies. Within a few weeks, four of them had expressed interest, and, after several long conversations with publishers, I finally agreed to put So Near the Horizon out into the world. What happened from then on, still feels like a dream…
The enthusiastic response I received from readers prompted me to continue the series, and So Near the Abyss as well as So Near the Ocean, the second and third books in the Danny Trilogy, were released later on.
 
Excerpt:
“Danny…Why do you belong there too?” I tried to meet his eyes, but he shut them, avoiding my gaze. His fingernails dug into the skin on his bare arms, and he pursed his lips grimly.
Slowly, I scooted toward him. “Talk to me, Danny, please,” I said, trying to pry one of his arms loose. But the more I tugged, the more rigidly he kept them crossed against his body as he shrank away from me as far as he could inside the cramped car. For a moment, I was afraid he would simply get out and walk away.
Too close, a voice whispered inside me. You’re much too close to him!
I let go of his arm so I could slide back into my seat, and he relaxed almost instantly. He took several deep, slow breaths before opening his eyes and blinking at me through his long lashes.

“You know why,” he whispered. “And someday I’ll tell you myself. I promise. Be patient with me.”

 
 

About the Author

Jessica Koch (born in Ludwigsburg, Germany) began writing short stories when she was still in high school, but never submitted her work to publishers. In late 1999, shortly after beginning her studies to become an architectural drafter, she met Danny, a German-American dual national. Her experiences with him eventually formed the basis for So Near the Horizon, though it was nearly thirteen years before she felt ready to bring the manuscript to the public.
The author describes a life lived somewhere between hope and fear, between optimism and despair. She reflects on events from her own past with raw honesty, confronting more than one difficult subject along the way.
Jessica Koch lives near the city of Heilbronn with her husband, their son, and two dogs. The second and third books in the trilogy, So Near the Abyss and So Near the Ocean, are already best-sellers in Germany as well.

About the Book

Seventeen-year-old Elle Collins spent most her life waiting for someone else to die…

When a heart donor is found, Elle awakes from surgery gifted with more than just a new heart—clairaudient messages and spiritual apparitions haunt her until she is convinced that she must be insane. Either that or her donor is sending a message.

Desperate for answers the medical community can’t provide, Elle’s divination leads her to the family of her donor—a young girl named, Cas. With the help of her best friend, Rob—the guy who’s a testament that her new heart is capable of love, Elle must make sense of the clues Cas is sending. As pieces of Cas’s life and death emerge, Elle will discover that she and Cas share more than just a heart.

Excerpt

She lets out a long sigh. “I heard that you received the heart of a girl about the same age as you.” She looks at me intently. I can tell she’s trying to read my expression, but I play it cool and keep a straight face. “She had an accident, honey.” After a long pause and a moment of uncomfortable silence, she continues. “There was nothing anyone could do,” She takes a deep breath and pushes the strands of hair away from my face. “Are you okay?”

“I am,” I say, surprised by my composure. A sense of calm washes over me and I use my pain as a guide to trace my fingers over my chest. I feel the bulkiness of the bandages under the linen hospital gown and rest my hand over my chest. It takes a moment before I feel the beating of my new heart. It’s different—steadier. I slide my tongue over my lips and taste the salt of my tears. Thank you. Thank you. I’m not exactly sure whom I’m thanking—God or my donor. It doesn’t feel right to thank God for what’s happened. He couldn’t have taken this girl’s life just to save mine. Closing my eyes tightly, I say a quiet prayer. I wish I knew your name. Then I could know whose soul I am praying for.

“Cas!” The voice is a soft, willowy whisper. I open one eye and gaze around the room. My mother is seated in the chair next to me, a closed People Magazine on her lap. She’s staring at a blank TV screen, lost in thought. The nurse is standing in the doorway, speaking with a doctor. From where I lie, I can’t see anyone else around.

“Cas!”

“Cas?” I repeat again, only louder.

My mother sits erect in the chair and the color drains from her face.

“What did you say?” she whispers.

There’s No Heaven….Like Hell
Faced with losing Pandora Productions as well as her best friend Rebecca to the smarmy Paul, savvy film executive Debbie makes a pact with the demon Shaker, agreeing to bind herself to him as his human master in return for killing Paul. When the intended coup goes amiss, resulting in the deaths of both Rebecca and Paul, Debbie finds herself alone at Pandora’s helm, facing a rising tide of corporate enemies led by Paul’s duplicitous son Dante and the behemoth Titan Pictures. Shaker’s backing smoothes the way, solving some problems supernaturally, others through brutal bloodshed, even as he calls into play various preternatural and human allies to assist Debbie.
As the months pass, Debbie’s strong resolve begins to crumble under the weight of her actions, even as she guiltily concedes the pleasure she finds in Shaker’s arms is becoming something more than just affection. Is there hope for a happy ending built on so much evil? Or is Debbie doomed to lose her heart as well as her soul to a demon who has only been waiting for the chance to claim both?
It takes talent on the part of an author to get me rooting for someone who’s decidedly not a ‘good person’. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I would recommend to anyone who likes something a little different in the way of paranormal romance and would enjoy a more mature heroine. Five Stars.

Excerpt

“So, can I meet him?” Sheila prodded.

“Shaker!” Debbie called loudly.

The demon appeared, inclining his head politely to a gaping Sheila, as if he met Debbie’s friends every night of the week. “I am here, Mistress. And I see you’ve included your good friend this evening. Are we to have a threesome?”

Sheila choked on her drink, as Debbie gave Shaker slitted eyes. “No, we are not doing anything of the sort. But I do have a question for you, Shaker. How does one go about getting a demon?”

“Sharing tales of me, I see,” Shaker said with a lecherous grin. “And the little lady wants a little demon action of her own. It can easily be arranged, Mistress.”

“Wait!” Sheila croaked out. “I didn’t say I wanted a demon of my own!”

“But don’t you?” Debbie said, standing unsteadily and moving to Shaker. She flipped up his loincloth, exposing him to Sheila, who went into a choking spasm again. Debbie lowered Shaker’s loincloth, then put her well-manicured hand on his red-tinged muscular arm. Shaker looked over at her with a sultry look.

All I have to do is tell him what I want and he’ll do it. And God, she wanted him to.

Survival Game Book Tour & Giveaway

Survival Game
Men of London Book 9
by Susan Mac Nicol
Genre: M/M Romance
 
HANDLE… 

Kyle Tripper has led an interesting life. Currently the manager of
London’s famous Club Delish, he used to be a croupier extraordinaire
in Las Vegas. But not everything in that life was so glamorous; his
ex was a piece of work. Now gun-shy, Kyle hopes there is someone
special out there for him, and secretly wishes it’s luscious
paramedic, Eric Kirby.
WITH CARE
Every day Eric Kirby goes through the motions. Yeah, he saves lives, and,
sure, he makes a difference, but he doesn’t feel it anymore – not
since he lost his one true. But, when he meets wild, flamboyant Kyle
Tripper and learns there’s a skittish, apprehensive man beneath the
bold façade, the best of Eric’s protective nature kicks in and opens
his heart to a new love.
 
 

Around ten that night, Eric walked into Club Delish to find it in full swing. He grinned wryly. Life carried on regardless of the owner being in hospital.

Determined to find Kyle, Eric manoeuvred through the writhing throng of half-naked, sweaty bodies, pouting drag queens, and men in various stages of grinding and sex play on the dance floor. He had a feeling he knew where to look.

Sure enough, Kyle was in Ryan’s office, standing with arms folded across his chest as he stared out of the large observation window down at the mass below. Eric couldn’t help but notice the strain of Kyle’s shirt across his shoulders, sleeves rolled up the elbows. His pert arse filled out his well-fitting trousers, one foot tapping to the faint strains of the music floating up from below. His hair colour had changed once again since Eric had seen him last. It was still a deep dark purple but now featured lilac streaks at the tips, and artful splashes that looked casually painted in.

Eric knocked and cleared his throat, announcing himself, knowing Kyle was skittish. Startling the man was the last thing he wanted.

Kyle?” He waited as Kyle turned swiftly and a look of relief passed over his face when he saw it was Eric.

Hi. What are you doing here?” Kyle moved away from the window and smiled softly. “Can’t keep away, huh?”

Eric walked into the room and laid his jacket on the chair. “I wanted to see how you were doing. And find out if there was any news about Ryan. I imagine things have been a little chaotic here today.”

Kyle waved a black fingernail-tipped hand. He had long fingers, and Eric had seen their dexterity first-hand when Kyle had done his card tricks. A fleeting flash of lust passed through Eric as he wondered what those fingers would feel like milking his cock.

About the Book

Luke believes he has his life figured out…and then he meets Theo.

It should have been simple—a summer spent with his girlfriend Zara at her family’s holiday cottage in Cornwall. Seventeen-year-old Luke Savage jumps at the chance, envisioning endless hours of sunbathing on the private beach and riding the waves on his beloved surfboard. He isn’t interested in love. Though his rugged good looks and lazy charm mean he can have his pick of girls, he has no intention of falling for anyone.

Nothing prepares Luke for his reaction to Theo, the sensitive Oxford undergraduate who is Zara’s cousin and closest friend. All at once, he is plunged along a path of desire and discovery that has him questioning everything he thought he knew about himself. No one, especially Zara, must find out; what he and Theo have is too new, too fragile. But as the deceit spirals beyond their control, people are bound to get hurt, Luke most of all.

Caught Inside was named a finalist in the 29th Annual Lambda Literary Awards for Best Gay Romance, the 5th Annual Bisexual Book Awards for Best Young Adult Novel, and the 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Awards for Best LGBT Fiction.

Excerpt

Warmth caresses my cheek. I sit up, blinking against the brilliant sunshine, and stretch experimentally. My headache has receded to a faint pulsing, and my stomach remains steady.

Zara glances over at me. “Feeling better?”

“Much.” Beyond the window, hills rise and fall like a pod of humpback whales against the sky, cattle dozing in the fields at their feet. “Where are we?”

“Devon. You’ve been asleep for hours.”

“Seriously?”

“Yup. Didn’t even stir when I stopped for petrol, which reminds me. I bought you something.” Zara indicates a carrier bag at my feet.

I bend to scoop it up. Inside is a bottle of water and a sandwich in a cardboard carton. It’s more than I deserve. I unscrew the cap and gulp half the water in one go. It’s lukewarm and tastes of plastic, but it’s a balm to my parched throat. Thirst quenched, I attack the sandwich. Egg and bacon. My favourite.

“Zara,” I say around a mouthful, “you’re the best.”

“You’re welcome.” She rests a hand on my thigh and gives it a gentle squeeze. “Sorry I was such a bitch.”

“You weren’t.” The corner of my mouth quirks in response to her raised eyebrow. “Well, maybe a bit, but it was my fault. I shouldn’t have drunk so much.”

“So you were out on the piss last night. I knew it.” She slaps my leg, but her eyes are amused.

We fall quiet, the earlier tension evaporated. I finish my sandwich, content to sit back and gaze at the view. Gradually, as we cross the border into Cornwall, the roads become narrower, the signs of civilization fewer and farther between. Towns give way to fishing villages surrounded by woodland and rolling fields. And then I get my first glimpse of the sea. The swell is visible even from this distance, rippling in the afternoon sun. My heart leaps in recognition.

“How long’s Theo been down here?” I ask a while later.

“A couple of months, since he finished uni for the summer.”

I try to imagine burying myself in the countryside for weeks on end, with only the waves and the occasional cow for company. The concept is too alien. Even in the holidays, when Mum’s working and I have the flat to myself, there’s a constant banging and creaking from the residents above and below me, the roar of traffic from the street outside. How might it feel to be really, truly alone?

Zara slows the car to manoeuvre a tight bend. “I think he just wanted to get away for a while. He’s been like that since the breakup, shutting himself away, refusing to talk about it. Don’t bring it up in front of him, will you?”

“What do you think I’m going to say? ‘Nice to meet you, Theo. By the way, sorry about your boyfriend.’”

“I’m serious, Luke. It really messed him up. He hasn’t even talked to me about it. Not yet.”

“Zara, I get it. It’s fine.”

All the same, with the countryside closing around us, the doubts set in. Perhaps Zara’s made a mistake bringing me. If Theo’s as cut-up as she says, he might not be in the mood for company, especially that of some guy he’s never met.

A quarter of an hour later, Zara swings through a gate set in the hedge and onto a gravel driveway. “We’re here.”

I’m allowed only a fleeting glimpse of the cottage before she veers into the garage, its entrance standing open in readiness. She parks beside the only other car, a silver Golf, its scratched body a marked contrast to the Mini’s gleaming paintwork.

Zara kills the engine. Silence descends, a silence more profound than any I’ve ever known. It presses in on my eardrums, a physical force. But for the fact that I can hear myself breathing, I would’ve sworn I’ve gone deaf.

“Well, come on.” Zara reaches for the door handle, her eyes alight. “Come and meet Theo.”

another life-altering fact: a god who’s on her side.

Cedric the Demonic Knight
The Cedric Series Book 1
by Valerie Willis
Genre: Epic Fantasy
 
Known for hunting the supernatural, no mortal man realizes Lord Cedric is
one of Sorceress Morrighan’s abominations. After competing in a
tournament, he is wed to a Lady of the Court, Angeline. Cedric’s
senses begin to overwhelm him and he struggles to decipher his
feelings; Are they a creation of his incubine bloodline or truly
heartfelt emotions for the girl who has lost it all to him? He finds
himself forced to choose between falling in love or continuing his
suicidal quest to kill his creator. Epic battles against all manners
of beasts and demons fill this story with memorable antagonists such
as Morrighan and her two sisters; Romasanta the Father of Werewolves;
Succubus Queen Lillith and many more. Find yourself engulfed in lores
and history long forgotten from the 12th Century and beyond.

 
 
Romasanta: Father of Werewolves
The Cedric Series Book 2
 
Romasanta finds himself a cursed man and struggles with his internal demon,
literally. All his troubles start with a stone and after that he will
be losing everything he’s ever loved. Faced with clinging on to what
little humanity he has, he will lose it many times before reaching
the end of his journey. His life’s tale will take you through time to
see how every lore, every moment in history tied in with wolves all
come back to him. They call him the Ancient One, others simply refer
to him as the Father of Werewolves, but we know him by his name,
Romasanta. Many battles will be fought before he gets closer to his
goals, but will he be ready to finish what was asked of him at the
very beginning of his horrible fate. Will he be able to return the
Eye of Gaea and free the love of his life from the laurel tree in the
Black Forest?
 
 
The Oracle
The Cedric Series Book 3
 
Released Sept 1st
 
With Angeline back in Cedric’s arms and the Eye of Gaea in Romasanta’s
grip, the next step in their journey begins. All eyes are set on Mt.
Parnassus where the Oracle is protected by Delphyne, the mother of
all dragons and beasts. Assembling a group of willing patrons,
Romasanta leads them to Delphi, Greece where they will cross into a
realm void of technology. Only brute strength and magic reign in a
place where packs of Mimick dogs, Wyverns and Jaculus still run wild.
Meanwhile, back home Lillith takes on a mysterious curse cast on Tony
who will have to make a life changing choice. The question weighing
on all their minds is if two werewolves, the Incubus King, and a
demonized sorceress will live to fight their way into Gaea’s Gate
to enter the Otherworld?

Closing her eyes, the conversation between Cedric and Tony was no longer

audible to her ears. She allowed herself to remember the horrific events,

something she still fought over whether it was a good or bad to urge herself to

recall any of it. Her mind stretched back to the beginning of her torment. It

wasn’t her time with Cedric that had rotted her soul, but one twist in fate she had

failed to see coming. The frightening turning point wasn’t the fight where Cedric

defeated Boto and became the new King Incubus, but the appearance of Merlin.

At first glance, he seemed like nothing more than a bald old man with a long

white beard. A few layers of long-sleeved tan robes and a rope belt with a satchel

added to his sage-like appearance. Powerful and wise, yet the sensation of good

judgment faded in an instant. He had placed the Amulet of Avalon, the Eye of

Gaea, into one of his sleeves after snatching it from Morrighan when he turned

to address them. Cedric was still in his incubine form. Horns black and curled

like a rams at the sides of his skull. Glaring at the wizard, he clenched his fangs

tight with contempt. Hands and feet were clawed and massive, while he was

three times larger in overall bulk and muscle in this form. A smooth thin tail

swished with anger and his massive bat-like wings adorned with two fingers at

the main fold were still held high in alarm.

All I could do was stand there covered in my own sweat and tears.

Everything crimson, blood painting my body from war waging all around me. I

remember how my nostrils stung with the iron smell from it all. Red rivulets

raced down Cedric’s side where Boto’s first strike had torn through his flesh. The

world slowed. I watched drops fall to the black marble floor with a tick-tock like

the ticking of a Doomsday clock, splattering at Cedric’s feet like rose petals

breaking apart, scattering from a hard fall. My chest ached and fear clawed at

me to think he could feel that emotion within me.

Cedric had slain Boto only minutes before, claiming the title of King Incubus

for himself. Angeline witnessed the harsh reality of a bond breaking, the outburst

of magic’s harsh whiplash rattling through Morrighan. The amount of pain

ripping through the souls of Boto and Morrighan was unmistakable and neverending.

Her breath caught in her throat as Cedric’s fear slammed into her and she

mirrored back her own. This could be them someday. She tried to voice her

concern, wanting to ask if this is what he would face due to her own mortality,

but his green glare silenced her. The wave of dread retreated back into him,

letting her know it was not her place to worry. She was a human bound to a

demon, married to Lord Cedric du Romulus the Demonic Knight. In this world,

she had no right to voice her thoughts. The world of humans was the extent of

her knowledge, while his world was a cruel place somewhere between demons

and gods.

But now, I have no knowledge of any world… no place to belong…

Morrighan had fallen victim to the recoil of her sins. Years of curses had

been waiting for an opening to exact their revenge for her abuse of necromancy

and other black arts against magical beings and creatures. Taking the stone away

was like stripping her of her shield and armor. She had been left naked and

exposed to Gaea’s Law and the lashing for hurting children of Gaea; those who

were made by her, descended from her or carried her magic within them.

Morrighan’s punishment unfolded at incredible speed and she took on a

gruesome and beastly appearance. Spending decades, possibly centuries making

chimeras had made her into one as well. She fell, passing out across Boto’s

lifeless body, exhausted from the sudden physical change. Cedric and Merlin had

stripped Morrighan of everything she’d held valuable in her life.

Merlin had materialized before them, his power resonating through the air.

He continued his casual conversation with Cedric while eyeing her at every

chance. Goosebumps prickled across her skin and she involuntarily held her

breath, hoping it would make her less visible.

You see, I have been digging through a century’s worth of time trying to

find this particular bloodline, but I see you have spoiled it with your own blood.”

The eyes of the wizard were growing brighter, bluer even as he scowled. His

tone of voice towards Cedric was as if he were a child who broke an expensive

vase. “This is going to delay my work. I will have to find a way to undo the

damage you have done to her witch’s blood. I despise demons and the work they

do on the human body. Worse off, you have gone as far as binding yourself to

her, it’s degrading.”

Cedric’s wings flared out in response of the wizard making it known

Angeline was his target. Her heart had been pounding, leaving her chest aching.

Anger waved out of Cedric, the heat of it physically flowing from him. She

could feel the scorching fire of his ire and his muscles tightened as if they were

her own.

Don’t touch her.” Fear shook her core at the sound of Cedric’s growl, a deep

demonic tone pouring from him.

Her thoughts tightened their hold on her. ‘Am I afraid of Cedric or the

wizard?’

You will not take her!” Cedric roared.

Ah, but I will, demons are such poor thinkers, tsk.” A smile crawled across

the old man’s face.

Angeline stood, watching it unfold. ‘No, not Cedric, but the wizard has every

part of me shaking with fear. Those glowing eyes… he will leave here with me…

I can feel it…’

She will be making her new home on Avalon, without you, of course.”

Scoffing, he continued to patronize Cedric. “It never shocks me to see how

easily demons fall for humans. The wolf never sleeps with the sheep for a

reason.”

Cedric snarled, “What do you want from her?”

I can’t run, he’ll get me.’ Looking down she saw her enchanted bow and a

sparkle of hope fluttered in her heart. ‘But if I can land a hit with Wylleam’s bow,

I can’t help but wonder if its magic might allow us to run.’

Her magic is dormant, there is nothing you can get from her.” It was more

of a plea coming from Cedric.

Ah, but you see, I have been pulling such deep magic into my own blood to

gain immortality. With the ancient line she holds, I will be able to achieve this as

well as the power to clean the rest of the demon powerhouses off this earth. I

will become supreme ruler of mankind, not Beelzebub, or any creature of such

spoiled lineage.” As Merlin continued his rant with Cedric, she gripped the wood

of her bow tight, sweat rolling down her cheek. “Feh, but unfortunately, I got

here far too late and will now have to cleanse her of your filth and try not to kill

her in the process. Bindings and transformations are difficult filths you hellish

dogs have plagued mankind with.”

She froze. The wizard took a step towards Cedric, sending him into a charge.

Her stomach knotted as she watched the distance between them grow until she

was out of Cedric’s reach.

NO! He’ll get me! I know it! I can sense it! CEDRIC COME BACK!’ If only

he could hear her thoughts!
