The Draykon Series, Books 1-3
by Charlotte E. English
The vast, winged draykoni once ruled the skies of the Seven Realms, uncontested and unstoppable — so the stories say. But they are only tales. Aren’t they?
A shy young woman is about to learn that sometimes, even the most far-fetched story might prove to be the plain, simple truth.
In book one, Draykon: When Llandry Sanfaer discovers a new type of jewel, her life changes forever. Wonderful and terrible, the gem exerts a strange influence over those who behold it. Soon people are dying for it — and Llandry herself becomes a target. This is only the beginning.
In book two, Lokant: the long-vanished draykoni race have returned, but with them comes another mystery. Who are the enigmatic, white-haired sorcerers stalking the draykoni across the Worlds? And what do they want with Llandry? As war builds between humankind and draykoni, Lady Evastany must uncover the truth about her own unique heritage — before it’s too late.
In book three, Orlind: War has broken out between the humans of the Seven Realms and the long-lost draykoni race. As Llandry fights to defend her home, Eva begins a desperate quest into the heart of the mystical Lokant Libraries — a quest that will lead her deep into the mysteries of the long-lost Seventh Realm.
Fly away on a whole new dragon adventure with this bumper box set – over 1000 pages of compelling mystery, dark magic, and suspense.

Beyond These Walls – Books 1 – 6: A Post-apocalyptic Survival Thriller

Edin is a city on the brink …
On the brink of collapse through overpopulation.
On the brink of revolution because of government oppression.
On the brink of being overrun by the diseased hordes outside its walls.
In a place like Edin, love is a luxury. But it’s a luxury Spike and Matilda–even when dealing with the very real threat of their own demise–refuse to live without.
Will Spike and Matilda realise their dreams in a world of nightmares?
And even if they do, what lies in wait for them beyond Edin’s walls?
Beyond These Walls is a post-apocalyptic epic where staying alive is reward enough. Join Spike, Matilda, and their friends to see if they can survive the brutal landscape, and maybe answer that one big question: Why does their world belong to the diseased?

Song of the Depths
by Bonnie L. Price
I’ve spent the past five years in isolation and under study. With my home razed by a Syldrari attack, my mind damaged, and nothing but white walls and a viewing window around me, I dedicated myself to two things: training my body, and reading any book they allowed me to have.
The Empire wants me to serve, to use the inhuman power the Incident stirred within me. Technically, they asked, but it wasn’t much of a choice. It never is. Serve, or… I refused to be a mindless slave. My life was taken from me once. Never again.
With the Empire moving forward with their xenophobic plans, they needed someone capable of killing Syldrari—and I was just that. A tool they could use, a tool they thought they could manipulate. Needing me was their first mistake. They gave me leverage, I named my terms.
Now, after five years, my life can begin.
