Welcome back to the Four Horsemen universe, where only a willingness to fight and die for money separates Humans from the majority of the other races. Edited by Mia R. Kleve and bestselling author Kevin Ikenberry, “Set the Terms” includes fourteen all-new Peacemaker-themed stories in the Four Horsemen universe by a variety of bestselling authors—and some you may not have heard of…yet.
From pigs flying to cats landing on their feet, “Set the Terms” shows Peacemakers at work from the origin of the guild to present day. Journey with a Lumar Peacemaker as he tries to complete his first mission and watch as a Phidae Peacemaker tries to complete his final one. They will have to use their wits as well as their weapons if they hope to remain standing at the end of the day.
Are you ready to set the terms? If so, then step inside!

“Betsy and the Timeship is a fun, mind-bending adventure! Marie Whittaker brings game and new excitement to time travel science fiction. Brava!” -Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of V-WARS and RAGE
A deadly, possessive entity imprints on members of Savannah Caleman’s family, making her the latest object of obsession in this chilling, historical tale of haunted legacy and terror.
"I'm a hard sell when it comes to chills. I write scary stuff for a living and, let's face it, we live in scary times, but THE WITCHER CHIME raised some goosebumps. Mainly because Marie Whittaker (writing as Amity Green) knows how to craft characters you care about. And if you become emotionally connected to the characters, you feel their feelings and share their sense of threat. Overall...a fine read for a creepy night!"—Jonathan Maberry -NY Times Bestseller
Savannah Caleman’s family has been coming apart since the early 1920’s. Now in the late 1980’s the evil plaguing her family dons a suit and tie and introduces himself, giving Savannah an ultimatum—endure endless terror or grant his freedom. She must decide between her sister’s safety and aiding a monster that can’t be identified as an angel or a demon. Either way, Savannah is torn, and takes to single-handedly running the family affairs with precision as she takes care of her sister. Terrifying events play out as the Witcher Place is transformed to a rich estate using old family resources. Releasing a monster to roam at will isn’t a stellar option, no matter the promises he makes. And he’s more than a monster. He knows her innermost thoughts. He’s in her head, becoming the ideal man for her, manipulating her thoughts. But the stains of murder and torment cannot be erased. He has fallen, been shackled in the mine beneath the Colorado mountains, and now has plans to rise once more using Savannah as the key to regain grace. Horror abounds and Savannah turns to distant relatives for answers, fearing her family’s stigma of insanity is real and has spread, caused by an evil as ancient as Genesis.
Amity Green's novels will hold you spellbound from the first page to the last. Wise and witty, Amity proves she is a talent to watch!"—David Farland, New York Times Bestselling Author
The evolution of hero takes time.
It's not something that can be done or learned overnight.
This is my journey. Because when you're a Celtic demigoddess, that's what you do. But what about the girl I was before all of this? Does antique-and-book-nerd Tessa Conley still exist?
Weeks ago, the world as I knew it—as everyone knew it—became a whole different planet.
Other things live here, too. Ancient souls breath right alongside you and me. Gargoyles, Celtic gods, ethereal water beings, creatures thought only to live in dreams, nightmares, and fairy tales, fight to hold their ground.
And I am one of them; no longer human. I'd lost myself but gained new abilities. I will use them and exploit all I have for the good.
If I can just keep breathing.
Fate is on my trail and she's a blithe and deadly hunter.
Phantom Limb Itch. Book Two of the urban fantasy adventure Fate and Fire series.
When Tessa Conley earns a scholarship to study in London, she's locked in an ancient bookstore and transformed into a living, breathing gargoyle in this thrilling dark fantasy tale of magic, myth, and destiny.
“With SCALES, newcomer Amity Green kicks off the exciting new FATE AND FIRE series in big way. Wild, creepy, and deeply imaginative dark fantasy. Highly recommended.” —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-WARS and GLIMPSE
She’s finally found a way out. Or so it seems…
Or has she simply traded one cage for another?
A trip to study in the UK triggers the impossible when Tessa Conley learns that beneath the skin and scales she’s not just an ordinary Southern Belle from Austin.
A Celtic demigoddess has fused her existence with Tessa, and much to Fate’s delight, mayhem ensues as Tessa struggles to embrace her new existence as a gargoyle with strong goddess tendencies.
The fight for her life is real.
Tessa’s inner conflict grows with the body count. Is killing still a sin if it’s done in the name of greater good?
Scales. Book One of the epic supernatural Fate and Fire series. Urban fantasy suspense you won’t want to put down.
