A chance encounter with Manta, an exceedingly powerful witch, sees Nick cursed with changelessness. Not only will he never age, but, more usefully to Manta, broken bones and sliced flesh, while excruciatingly painful, will mend themselves in a short space of time - making Nick the perfect weapon against the demonic assassins sent by the evil Cartel. Constantly hunted, Nick is forced to run - evading his enemy when he can and facing gruesome and bloody battles when he can't.
But, help comes from a surprising source - April, a young girl Nick rescues from some occult enthusiasts intent on sacrificing her, has powers beyond her control or understanding. Together, might they be a match for the sinister forces that stalk them?
As a young boy growing up in Arizona, Ascension has the same worries as any other twelve year old: living up to his father’s expectations, hating his weird name, and getting along with family he’s never met before. What he doesn’t know, though, is that HE IS DESTINED TO GROW UP TO BE THE ANTICHRIST.
He has no idea that he is actually the son of Satan; instead, he believes that his purpose on this earth is to fight evil. In fact, he soon discovers that HE COMES FROM A LONG LINE OF WITCH HUNTERS. In an unexpected trip to old world Mexico, he saves and befriends an entity—who turns out to be an extraterrestrial being who had been close to death.
The alien later discovers the boy’s true destiny and realizes then that a terrible burden has been placed upon his shoulders. He’s peaceful at heart and doesn’t want to hurt anyone—but SAVING THE WORLD MEANS DESTROYING THE BOY, AND PROTECTING THE BOY MAY MEAN DESTROYING THE WORLD.

ANITA doesn't cackle and hiss as she works dark curses, either. Oh, she casts witch's spells and incantations, but not the usual kind.
ANITA's main interest is boys, just like any other girl her age. And she doesn't really need things like love potions - not with her face and figure.
But ANITA is a witch, and she's young and a little reckless. Which means she sometimes makes mistakes (usually with boys), and when she does... all Hell might break loose....

THE HOLIDAYS ARE HELL
Churchwitch Chess Putnam has seen, and banished, her share of ghosts, but not of the Christmas Past variety--the holiday has been illegal since the Church of Real Truth defeated the undead and took control of the world in 1997. Yet when she and her boyfriend, Terrible, make a trip to an abandoned auto junkyard, they find more than the rusted auto parts and spare tires they'd bargained for. They also run across a creepy Miss Havisham-type hell-bent on reuniting with her long-dead husband just in time for Christmas--even if it means taking Chess and Terrible down with her into the City of Eternity...
If Chess and Terrible don't manage to keep these ghosts in the past, they won't have a future...
At least Chess has Terrible on her side. But things are never as black and white as they seem, especially not when love is involved, and Chess finds herself making a decision she never thought she'd make.
It’s been one heck of a week for Garnet Lacey. The Vatican witch hunters finally think she’s dead, the FBI has closed their file on her, she’s co-founding a new coven—and the gorgeous vampire she loves has just asked her to marry him. How lucky can one girl get?
Then, her fiancé goes missing and Garnet’s worried sick. Has he been kidnapped? Or could he have run off with that blonde from the coven? Now Garnet will have to seek the help of her future stepson—the same brat who turned her over to the witch hunters for a brand-new Jaguar. But there’s more bad news: the Goddess Lilith, who camps out in her body, has been making embarrassing appearances. And on top of that, some killer’s on her tail...
Set in mystical sixteenth century Ireland, A Witch’s Destiny, the final enthralling installment in this original portion of The Irish Witch Series, promises to captivate readers with unexpected twists and turns and reveals several emotional truths and secrets they have long been waiting to learn.
But then the fierce Allemani people came from beyond the sea. Newly settled in the land, they at first dwelt in peace with the shari'a. But trust turned to hate and the fear that the Allemani had for the witches soon boiled over into genocide. The Allemani decimated the shari'a out of fear of their differences.
And so Briarly hid in the shadows, keeping her healing powers a secret-but she was compelled to use them when necessary, and these actions caused her to be discovered. When she was forced to flee the only home she had ever known, she did not go alone, for she had captured the heart Duke Melfallan, and though he is Allemani, he vows to attempt to change the Law condemning any shari'a to death because he has come to know that the shari'a are not monsters...and they can bring a great joy to the world.
As she makes her way out into the world to hide while Melfallan fights to save her, Brierley discovers that she is not the last of her kind. That there are many, like her, who managed to stay in the shadows, generations of shari'a who have kept quiet, hid their powers and have waited. And that not all of whom share Brierley's good heart.
The time of reckoning is at hand, the forces that the shari'a once controlled are being summoned once more, and Brierley finds that the hatred that fueled the Allemani ages past is still very much alive.
Will Brierley have to sacrifice her life (and that of her unborn child) to save an entire world and make things right for her people?
