Varin Entorin has crossed paths with Lady Kat a few times, and as far as he’s concerned, that woman is nothing but trouble. Life was simple before she showed up: take on a job, get hold of the item and bingo! Payday. Now, every time he goes looking for an artefact, she’s already had it first. It’s starting to really make him angry.
But now tales are spreading across the galaxy of a rare stone, a stone of incredible beauty that gives the owner immortality, and everyone wants it. Of course the galaxy’s two best artefact-hunters are going to get involved; but so are some very nasty people indeed, not least the organisation headed by ruthless psychopath The Skinstress.
When the Skinstress wants a thing, she gets it.
What she wants is them both working to get the Stone for her.
And she wants it NOW.
Join Kat and Varin as they start on a thrilling chase that will take them across to the very edges of the Universe.
Things will never be the same again.
From the world of “Vade Mecum” as seen in the Hellcats Anthology.
Holly’s in trouble; her magic is growing faster than her control of it.
After an incident at the Ball, she flees home in disarray.
But all is not well in the mountains.
A dryad lies near death and suspicion points at the humans.
Halfway through Holly’s lessons, Leoflynn disappears.
And her father finally loses his tolerance for all things magical and decides they must leave the mountains for good.
Unable to persuade him otherwise, Holly must choose between her friends and her father.
But things are far from simple, and there are so many unanswered questions.
Who would hurt a dryad?
What has happened to Leoflynn?
And how can Holly move back to town, when she may be a danger to those around her?
Join Holly as her journey becomes darker and more exciting, culminating in the sequel, Holly Ablaze (due later in 2019).
Then a ninja elf came and broke Santa out; no net is strong enough to keep out this ninja elf! Off past the faithful family pet they ran and jumped in the sleigh. They raced to another house but refused to stop when ghosts were there to greet them. Santa doesn’t tangle with ghosts. He doesn’t tangle with vampires, either.
At the next stop, he met a runaway gingerbread man who yelled, “You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man!” Santa didn’t bother to catch him; he had things to do.
On his way to his next delivery, he passed a werewolf jumping out of a plane and dodged a zombie hungry for his brain.
He finally touched down in a nice, normal town full of tidings and great joy…
Or did he?
