Hello friends and readers!
I’m back. I’ve been quiet, I’ve been positively mouse-like, but I’m back and I have a book. A new epic fantasy with a gorgeous cover by artist Laura Sava.
Azrael’s Wrath is Book 2 in the “War of the Magi” series, and it’s a doozy.
Our heroes Zerai the falconer, Veneka the healer, and Iyasu the seer are back from Raziel’s Shadow and this time they aren’t dealing with mere demon hordes. We have more angels, more djinn, and more bizarre romantic entanglements than even I suspected to find. Here’s the description:
At the age of seventeen, the brilliant young seer Iyasu was sent to the west to help a mighty kingdom prosper in peace. But instead, he has brought them to the brink of war. Devastated by his own failures, and haunted by the bloody nightmares he unwittingly unleashed, Iyasu escapes to the jungle in search of the angel Raziel and the help of the magi clerics.
Now he must return to the kingdom he destroyed, accompanied by a healer, a falconer, and three mysterious djinn to confront a blood-thirsty warlord and his legions. But he no longer trusts his own visions, two of the djinn hide terrible secrets, and the Angel of Death herself now stalks the land to punish the wicked for all the death and suffering she has seen in the world.
Available now on Amazon Kindle.

About the book:
Book 1 – Omar the Immortal – In the dazzling and dangerous land of Marrakesh, globe-trotting scholar Omar Bakhoum joins an airship expedition into the freezing north in search of a fabled country called Ysland, but howling ice storms, legions of ghosts, and a deadly samurai stand in his path.
Book 2 – Freya the Huntress – In the snowy highlands of Ysland, Freya’s sister is attacked by a diseased creature. Now, the Viking huntress has only a few hours to find a cure before her sister becomes a monstrous fox demon. But she learns that the only person who can cure the demon plague is a certain traveler from a distant land, but he was murdered five years ago…
Book 3 – Wren the Fox Witch – The young witch Wren follows her mentor Omar across the frozen wastes of Europa to the warring cities of Constantia and Stamballa, where war is the least of her problems. While Omar leads a desperate battle against an undead army, Wren must face the immortal witch Baba Yaga, who has gone mad grieving for her son, Koschei the Deathless. During their duel, Wren confronts the spiteful souls of her dead teachers, her own secret fears made flesh, and the waking nightmares of Baba Yaga herself.
This series is a tour of Norse and Russian mythology, terrorized by werewolves (werefoxes!), ghosts, zombies, and witches. The swashbuckling adventure is punctuated by nightmarish creatures and mysteries, as well as deeply passionate moments between the heroines and their lovers, as well as some steampunky ties to the Halcyon and Chimera series.

For the next five days (September 26 to 30), you can get my epic fantasy novel Raziel’s Shadow free on Amazon Kindle. [ Get it now! ]
About the book: As the long-lost prince of a country conquered by demons, Zerai Djonn has known only hardship, fear, and death all his life. But the legends of the great magi warriors tempt him to travel east in the hopes of gaining divine powers so he might return to free his people and reclaim his grandfather’s throne. But upon returning home, Zerai is reduced to a mere guide, helping a band of powerful magi to cross a land infested with ghuls, ifrits, marids, and djinn in search of a way to undo the madness that was unleashed when the angel Raziel was murdered.
It’s dark (and sexy), and delves into the lives of “average” people who have to live through apocalyptic times, suffering loss and loneliness, and madness. But it ends on a bright and optimistic note, though the journey to get there may surprise you.
