Awakening contains the first three stories in the Ava Delaney series so far. A supernatural urban fantasy adventure.

Thirst: 

Ava Delaney calls herself a hybrid - a living, breathing human who happens to have vampire poison running through her veins. The only thing greater than her thirst for human blood is her capacity for guilt. She does her best to avoid the human world, for everyone's sake. 

When Ava accidentally enslaves a human while saving him from a vampire, she realises she has to look for help setting him free. Despite her misgivings, she expands her world but finds herself dragged into a possible vampire civil war. With the help of some new friends with ambiguous loyalties, she tries to find a way to keep her human, and herself, alive. 

Taunt: 

All Ava wants to do is forget about the vampires, but they won’t leave her alone. Between her failing business, angry landlord, disloyal friends, and vampire stalkers, life is starting to feel pretty stressful. When Ava finally deals with her biggest problem, she is caught up in the chain of events it triggers and taken along a path she can’t escape from. 

Ava has to figure out what exactly is her biggest threat: the humans, the vampires, the Council—or her true heritage. 

Tempt: 

There’s a monster running around Dublin, and it’s up to Ava to catch it. The pressure’s on, and she’s becoming as cynical as Peter. But when a demon marks her friend, and a possible threat from England spells war, Ava’s left with a huge choice to make. The lives of one or many. 

With a little help, Ava has the chance to win all of her battles… if the darkness doesn’t take her over first.

Volume one contains approx. 170,000 words.
A woman fated to die. A missing mother. A son’s search for the truth.

Welcome to a place with a dark history, an island in the Celtic Sea where not everything is as it seems. Welcome to Lansin Island.

Popular with Pagans for its larger-than-life celebrations of the seasonal Sabbats, Lansin Island is rife with witchy history. But with Halloween just around the corner, it’s harder than ever to tell fact from fiction.

Nicolas Crystan, an ordinary young guy trying to find his way in the world, has lived on the island his whole life. Apart from his mother’s unexplained disappearance, he’s never witnessed anything like the strange stories he’s grown up hearing about—until the day he's struck by a disturbing vision of a woman's death.

When he uses the premonition to save Juliet Maystone from a grisly fate, their lives become linked—and forever altered. Before long, a cryptic message about Nick’s missing mother plunges Nick and Juliet into a world of ghosts, mediums, immortals and murder.

Many are called... She alone can save the world and become Death's bride.
COBWEB BRIDE (Cobweb Bride Trilogy, Book One) is a history-flavored fantasy novel with romantic elements of the Persephone myth, about Death's ultimatum to the world.

What if you killed someone and then fell in love with them?

In an alternate Renaissance world, somewhere in an imaginary "pocket" of Europe called the Kingdom of Lethe, Death comes, in the form of a grim Spaniard, to claim his Bride. Until she is found, in a single time-stopping moment all dying stops. There is no relief for the mortally wounded and the terminally ill....

Covered in white cobwebs of a thousand snow spiders she lies in the darkness... Her skin is cold as snow... Her eyes frozen... Her gaze, fiercely alive...

While kings and emperors send expeditions to search for a suitable Bride for Death, armies of the undead wage an endless war... A black knight roams the forest at the command of his undead father... Spies and political treacheries abound at the imperial Silver Court.... Murdered lovers find themselves locked in the realm of the living...

Look closer--through the cobweb filaments of her hair and along each strand shine stars...

And one small village girl, Percy--an unwanted, ungainly middle daughter--is faced with the responsibility of granting her dying grandmother the desperate release she needs.

As a result, Percy joins the crowds of other young women of the land in a desperate quest to Death's own mysterious holding in the deepest forests of the North...

And everyone is trying to stop her.

"... Nazarian writes clean and true prose ..."
--Publishers Weekly

She must feed off sinners to survive. But to feed is to sin, and to sin, is to be punished.

Misa Fairchild is a detective in the screwed up city of Saint Helios. She has a secret she’s kept since the day she was born. A secret that haunts her every step and breath.

She’s an Arc Angelus, a top-tier predator who must feed off sinners to survive. If the Government knew what she was, they’d kidnap her and brainwash her for their Arc Program.

Every day, she battles with her hunger as she hides among the police, using her contacts to find sinning Angelus so she can feed off them to live. She has no option but to kill – she has to keep her niece alive, and this is the cost of survival in this tortured world.

Her partner is Farley Jones, a man who lives behind a mask. A man who lost his humanity and kindness the day his family were killed in an Arc attack. He’s dedicated his life to tracking those monsters down, and he’s never given an Angelus quarter.

Farley and Misa are thrust together when a string of murders within the police force draws Internal Affairs into Saint Helios, and hot on their heels is Army Intelligence. The Government, it seems, is looking for something.

Once upon a time, Misa knew her heart around Farley, but that starts to change. And as it does, it draws her further into danger she can't afford. She tries to protect him, but it will come at a cost.

As forces align against them, Misa must kill to protect, but in doing so, she is unlocking something within herself that she can't hope to understand. A process that will change everything….

Hell’s Angel is an Urban Fantasy serial sure to please fans of Odette C. Bell’s The Last Queen.
