The long-awaited conclusion to The Rising Series.
For two thousand years, a betrayer has occupied the throne on Olympus. Hungry for power, he has wreaked havoc among the gods, as well as the humans on earth. But a spark of hope ignites in the form of four young women—ones who are destined to free the true king and save the human world. Two have been found, and the others must be located before it's too late.
Drakōn would love nothing more than to turn his back on the whole thing. It's not that he doesn't care about humans, but he has his own world to worry about. But then, he is given an impossible task—one he finds himself unable to refuse. He is charged with protecting a woman, but not just any woman—Tana, goddess of wind and fire.
Tana is more than he bargains for. Sentenced to an eternity of imprisonment for burning hundreds to death in a fiery inferno, she has powerful enemies. Drakōn finds himself facing off with those adversaries even as he questions why he doesn't simply destroy her himself. But Tana is one of four destined to save the world. That is, if she doesn't destroy it first. And Drakōn? He may just lose his most guarded possession. His heart.

Burning Nights


Crimson Tree Publishing is proud to present Burning Nights, the sixth book in The Ancient Fire Series by Julie Wetzel.


After a wedding filled with werewolves, fay, and vampires, Vicky is looking forward to a nice, quiet honeymoon away from the chaos of Darien’s daily life. But nothing is ever simple with an Ancient Vampire around.

When the Vampire Council of Hawaii finds out Darien and his new bride are coming, they are determined to see that Darien is honored properly. But vampire etiquette isn’t for the faint of heart.

The nights could burn when lines are drawn… and Darien finds himself in a turf war he never intended to start.


Excerpt:


Shock and fear widened the woman’s eyes. “I don’t know what you’re talking about, darling.”
Don’t lie to me, kitsune,” Darien said as his eyes narrowed at the Japanese fox spirit trapped in his arms. “I can see your tail.”
The long, bushy tail of a fox swished back and forth as the woman gasped. She struggled to get free, but she could not break his hold.
That will do you no good, yōkai,” he said, holding her firmly against him. “I’m not completely unfamiliar with your kind. I’ve been spellbinding you for most of the night.”
She drew in a deep breath as if she was going to speak, but let it out without saying what she wanted to. Her shoulders sagged as the fight went out of her. “How?”
Darien shook his head and smiled at her. “If I told you that, you could remove it, and you’re not going anywhere until you tell me who you are and where Vicky is.”
Letting out a sigh, the woman raised her hand and pulled something from the top of her head. The illusion melted away, leaving Shuri wrapped in Darien’s arms.
Darien chuckled in amusement. “I should have known.” Reaching up, he took the small skull from Shuri before releasing his hold on her. “A thin face, a fine bone structure, and close set eyes. All traits of a fox daemon. Then there was that power at the Council’s luau. Only a creature with strong magic could pull that off. I feel foolish for not picking up on it earlier.” Releasing her, he took a step back so she stood on her own.
She recoiled from him as if she were going to bolt.
I wouldn’t run if I were you,” Darien said in a light tone as he turned and started down the beach. “You might be able to get about twenty feet before the pain starts.” He paused and tucked his hand in his pocket as he spoke. “Why do you think I hung so close to you all night long?”
Shuri stood there staring at him with an open mouth.
He turned and started walking again.
As the gap between them grew, a tickling sensation raced over Shuri’s skin, like the feeling of hundreds of spiders crawling all over her. She brushed at her arms, but there was nothing there. The sensation grew until it was an itch.
Darien stopped and turned back to her. “Come on.” He used his head to urge her to join him. “The night is more than half over and we have much to discuss.”

Enslaved Blog Tour



Clean Teen Publishing presents Enslaved, the latest installment in N.W. Harris's The Last Orphans Series.



 If he loses her, he’ll lose his will to fight.

Shane and his friends survive the first major attack against the enemy, destroying the alien ships that came to harvest the children of Earth and turn them all into slaves. However, one ship escaped, and the aliens have captured Kelly. Shane will do whatever it takes to save her, but turning his back on his friends could jeopardize the whole mission.

The enemy invades Kelly’s mind, turning her into a slave soldier. She’ll follow their orders, even if it means murdering her friends, including her little sister and Shane. She is helpless, trapped inside her body while it performs heinous tasks under the direction of her new masters, while her sanity and desire to live fade.

Shane returns home to make a rescue attempt, only to find Kelly commanding an army of human slave soldiers, and she’s determined to make him join her ranks. Will Shane save Kelly before she gets to her sister, or will she help the enemy enslave the rest of humanity?


 Excerpt:


It has to be the most beautiful planet in the universe,” Pelros mused, his head tilted back as well.
“And perhaps the most dangerous,” Athos added with equal awe.
They headed toward the city center, to the meeting hall located next to the coliseum. Everyone they passed seemed in an unnatural hurry, apprehension plaguing their expressions as they encountered Athos and Pelros.
“They fear rebels have destroyed the other ships from the inside,” Athos observed.
“Is that what you think?” Pelros asked, speaking quietly though there was no need for secrecy on that subject.
“It’s possible.” Athos hated speculation, preferring to deal in facts. Where normally he’d scold a junior officer for asking his opinion, he couldn’t help humoring his nephew.
“Are there any survivors down there?” Pelros’ voice was a mix of concern, anger, and frustration. “Shouldn’t we be staging a rescue?”
“Unfortunately,” Athos replied, “whoever coordinated the attacks caused the human recruits to turn on the ships’ crews and passengers.”
“They’re all dead?” Pelros’ voice cracked.
“It appears so,” Athos said. He was more callous than Pelros, though the loss weighed heavy on his heart as well. “It is a horrible tragedy. But we honor the dead best by carrying on. If we regain control of this harvest, their sacrifice will mean something.”

The Last Orphans (The Last Orphans Series Book 1)




 One horrifying day will change the life of sixteen-year-old Shane Tucker and every other kid in the world.

In a span of mere hours, the entire adult population is decimated, leaving their children behind to fend for themselves and deal with the horrific aftermath of the freak occurrence. As one of the newly made elders in his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a large group of juvenile survivors. One who just happens to be Kelly Douglas—an out-of-his-league classmate—who, on any other day, would have never given Shane a second glance.

Together, they begin their quest to find out why all of the adults were slaughtered. What they find is even more horrifying than anything they could have expected—the annihilation of the adults was only the beginning. Shane and his friends are not the unlucky survivors left to inherit this new, messed-up planet. No, they are its next victims. There is an unknown power out there, and it won’t stop until every person in the world is dead.

A spine-tingling adventure that will have you gasping for breath all the way until the last page, The Last Orphans is the first book in an all-new apocalyptic series.
