Summary: It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back.


Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.

Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco where she’ll risk everything to rescue her sister and he’ll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.

Synopsis: I’ve always felt like an average girl … except for my strange relationship with death. You could say I like to court it. Whether I’m soaring through the air as a flyer for Specter University’s cheer squad, or speeding down the steepest mountain with only grace and balance keeping me from an icy end, I’ve always needed to feel a rush. But now Death is courting me―in more ways than one. First, there’s Rishi, a rogue death deity who has a penchant for annoying me nearly to my grave and whose intense gaze has the power to see right through me. Then there’s Hades, who I’d rather had stayed just a myth. Now that he knows I exist, he’s not going to leave me alone until I meet the same end as my mother.

Oh yeah, did I forget to mention her? I spent my whole life thinking she had died when I was a baby, but now I’ve found out she’s much more than dead. Fifty years ago, Hades banished my mother from the underworld and took away her ability to cross over souls―souls that have wandered lost through the world ever since. Now she wants me to clean up the mess. You may have heard of her before…

They call her the Grim Reaper.

Synopsis:  After a freak accident that Shelland Conall can’t remember, a strange boy with a snarky attitude shows up on her front porch, shocking her with the realization that he’s been following her.

To make matters worse, her stalker claims to be the one that saved her from her unknown brush with death, and he comes bearing an unthinkable truth: someone’s been poisoning her.

It’s not just any type of poison, but a suppressant disguised as an everyday pill, and it’s been specifically crafted to stultify something inside her. The question is, what?

Now, Shelland must learn how to decipher what’s real and what’s not. She thinks they’ve both gone crazy. That he’s a rambling loony, and she’s just as insane for listening, but when his ramblings soon turn to fact, Shelland will have to question everything she’s ever known. Who can she trust? Her family, her best friend, or the enigmatic stranger with eyes like ice and a heart to match?
