The Emerald Idol
Far to the south of Pelos and Blossoms lies the island city of Selamarr, the most prosperous city in the nation of Selvayna. Nobles and high merchants rule Selamarr, and for a city guard like Leonie, they can certainly make life difficult. Tasked with retrieving an idol stolen from one of Selamarr’s founding families, Leonie finds herself repeatedly crossing paths with Jayce. It doesn’t take long to realize that Jayce is after information about the idol. Realizing she is in over her head, Leonie grudgingly agrees to work with him to reach their goal, getting far more than she ever could have bargained for in the process.
Sneak Peek: Living Legend
For over a thousand years, Cassandra Grey has lived with her fellow mages in isolation from the rest of Etrasia. In that time, humans have spread out over most of the continent, building their own nations and adapting to life without magic. They have adapted so well, in fact, that most humans no longer believe magic and mages to be anything but stories. But magic is not entirely gone from human lands, and there are a few who still know the truth of it. When a mission leads Cassandra into the human nation of Kassini, she finds herself dragged into mortal affairs once more. Even as she hunts down an ancient enemy, she must work to help Kassini avoid war with its neighboring nation of Viatalus. Because the stakes are higher than just Kassini and Viatalus. If she fails, it could spell disaster for all of Etrasia.

One impulsive act sends a young princess spiraling down a path to a whole new life of adventure!
Never Be the Same
Sierra thought she had a pretty decent life: a job that paid the bills, co-workers she (mostly) got along with, good friends, a loving family, and a night life as the bass player in a kickass band. If anyone had asked, she would have said she wasn’t looking for anything new. But no one asked. Certainly not the stray cat she found one night after a gig. He seemed so scared and in need of someone to look after him. Surely there couldn’t be any harm in taking him home. Getting a pet was no big deal…right?
