"In this series, there is no shortage of action, betrayal and bringing back the dead"--Paranormal Romance Guild on The Necromancer's Betrayal

"If you enjoy an urban fantasy with a little romance and sex on the side, you'll probably enjoy The Necromancer's Seduction." --Bewitching Book Tours Magazine

Between hell and a hard place . . .

Before he died, necromancer Ruby Montagne's demon grandfather passed her his Death Essence--his power. And that would be good . . . if she had a clue how to use it. Unfortunately, the impending destruction of both of her worlds demands she figures it out--fast. She's got to stop an invasion of zombies from the bowels of hell. She has help from Xavier, the demon she's nicknamed the Big Bad. But while Xavier does teach her to control her new power, he's just setting her up for trouble. Bad trouble. Still, he's better than the demon High Inquisitor, who's obsessed with trying to kill her.

Ruby's got even more trouble. She wants to regain the trust of her sometimes-lover, sometimes-adversary, Ewan--a demon warrior who's six-feet-plus of chiseled muscle and coiled sexuality. It'd be a lot easier if her beloved friend, Lysander, a powerful vampire, wouldn't keep trying to lure her into bed.

In order to defeat the zombies she must find--and learn how to use--an ancient artifact that will keep the veil between the worlds from shattering. But there's a cost--the artifact feeds on souls. If she masters the artifact's power, she'll save both the human and demon worlds. But there's not much time . . . and the artifact is hungry. Will she forfeit her soul before she's able to fix the veil?

Mimi Sebastian raised herself on books, an unhealthy dose of comics, and movies. When a career as a punk guitarist failed to materialize, she completed her degree in urban planning. By day, she debates the merits of transport oriented development. By night she writes about necromancers and pirates.

After accidentally blowing up a client's facility and ruining a cushy city contract in the same day, pyromancer and mercenary captain Andrea Walker is scrambling to save her Zero Dogs. Her team of misfits includes a sexually repressed succubus, a werewolf with a thing for health food, the token vampire, a three-hundred-pound calico cat, and a massive demon who really loves to blow stuff up. Life is never dull for these paranormal guns for hire.

 

With the bankruptcy vultures circling, the government throws her a high-paying, short-term contract even the Zero Dogs can't screw up: destroy a capitalist necromancer bent on dominating the gelatin industry with an all-zombie workforce. The catch? She has to take on Special Forces Captain Jake Sanders, a man who threatens both the existence of the team and Andrea's deliberate avoidance of messy romantic entanglements.

 

As Andrea strains to hold her dysfunctional team together long enough to derail the corporate zombie apocalypse, the prospect of getting her heart run over by a tank tread is the least of her worries. The government never does anything without an ulterior motive. Jake could be the key to success...or just another line item in her expanding list of problems. Oh, and the necromancer begins expanding his commercial enterprise by bussing zombies to rob banks and wreaking general havoc. Good thing Andrea isn't afraid to burn a few bridges to get the job done.

After the horrors of an alien attack, the world is no longer as it once was. But thanks to a heroic human resistance, the powerful fire lord Zeda and his armies have been destroyed. The world, while currently tranquil, remains vigilant. That sense of safety is tested by a series of avalanches in Canada. Could this be simply a series of natural phenomenaor the beginning of a new campaign of destruction by terrorists? Hero Winfred Cowell decides to attack them at their home base in Africa, but his plans are complicated by the arrival of strange, deadly beings who have emerged from the Bermuda Triangle. Forces unknown have transformed humans into Allosaurus-like monsters. Worse, just when he needs them the most, Winfred has lost his abilities. Winfred and Margaret set out on a quest to take the royal items of Zeda and release his prisoners. Once freed, the creatures now follow Winfred and Margaret back to the Bermuda Triangle, where a terrifying monster named Polkren is preparing to attack the world. But when the creatures betray their human partners, events take a dire turn. Now following the commands of their new master, Polkren, the creatures attack New Jersey. Meanwhile, Polkren has activated the machine that transforms half of the USA and Mexico civilians into zombies. The battle will claim a powerful leader before everything is done. The forces of good and evil will both risk everything to win. Winfred must summon all of his courage and creativity when the unimaginable happens: Foxpin, the son of Zeda, comes to the Earth with a hundred spaceships at his command. And only one of the commanders is destined to survive this brutal, epic battle.
Hailed as “the first important new SF writer of the 21st century,” John Meaney delivers a darkly luminous new thriller that blends futuristic noir with gothic fantasy. Here, in a city of the dead where desire is very much alive and murder a pleasure for connoisseurs, an honest cop must face his own darkest impulses just to have a prayer.

There have been four victims already. Famed for their beauty and one-of-a-kind artistic gifts, they were murdered in the most shocking ways imaginable and their corpses stolen. Now the famed diva Maria daLivnova is arriving in Tristopolis—a city literally powered by the massive necroflux generators that process the dead—and it is up to Lieutenant Donal Riordan to make sure she ends her limited engagement alive.

But Riordan isn’t the only one watching deLivnova. For the Diva is being followed by two other secret “protectors”: Commander Laura Steele—who’s made a more or less successful transition to para-life—and her partner, the invisible free-wraith Xalia. They are part of the necropolis’s vast underground network and they’ve mobilized against an unseen enemy for a battle of epic proportions. For a perverse death cult with powerful members in every stratum of society has learned how to distill from the bones of their sacrificed victims the ultimate thrill—a nectar that, once tasted, is impossible to resist. And the more precious the life, the greater the pleasure it is to take it away.

Soon Riordan will find himself in the unlikeliest of alliances as he journeys through a world of corruption—both aboveground and below—among gargoyles and zombies, spirit slaves and assassins, science and sorcery, in search of an enemy even the dead have every reason to fear….
From John Meaney, the author of Bone Song and “the most important new SF writer of the 21st century,”* comes a new novel, Black Blood. In it he offers his intoxicating blend of futuristic noir and gothic fantasy in a thriller that carries a cop with a personal vendetta across the barrier between life and death. Here, in a morbidly lush necropolis, he must stop a conspiracy of killers whose power is fueled by spilling…

He’s lucky to be alive. That’s what everyone tells him. Except Tristopolitan police lieutenant Donal Riordan doesn’t feel lucky and he isn’t really alive. In one horrific moment not even death can erase from memory, Donal lost the woman he loved even as her ultimate sacrifice saved his life. Now it’s literally her heart that beats in his chest and her murder that Donal “lives” to avenge.

While being a zombie cop has its upsides—including inhuman reaction time and razor-sharp senses—Donal’s new undead status makes him the target of Tristopolis’s powerful Unity Party, whose startling rise to power is built on a platform of antizombie paranoia and persecution. The Party is no friend, to be sure—but it’s the secret cabal known as the Black Circle and their stranglehold on the city’s elite that consume Donal’s black heart. For at the center of this ring of evil is the man responsible for his lover’s murder—a man Donal has already had to kill once before.

Now, with ominous reports of white wolf sightings throughout the city and a dangerous sabotage attempt at police headquarters, all signs indicate that the Black Circle is planning a magical coup d’état. And the terror will begin with a political assassination triggered by a necroninja already hidden… in a place no one expects.

For Donal, it’s no longer a matter of life and death but something far more serious. How can he stop a killer who won’t stay dead and an evil that death only makes stronger?
