In a shining, island kingdom of wonders, the daughter of a high priest fights for her claim to wealth and power after her father is assassinated by the king.
When their threads of fate entwine, they will build an empire recalled as an ancient legend and a cautionary tale. But how did he become a god while she became a mere footnote in history?
Andrew J. Peters writes fantasy for readers of all ages. In addition to Poseidon and Cleito, he is the author of the Werecat series, The City of Seven Gods, and two books for young adults: The Seventh Pleiade and Banished Sons of Poseidon. Andrew grew up in Buffalo, New York, studied psychology at Cornell University and has been a social worker, an advocate for LGBT youth, and an executive at a not-for-profit organization. He lives in New York City with his husband Genaro and their cat Chloë.
A fugitive from two murder investigations in New York City and a bizarre, big cat attack at a bank in Barbados, Jacks Dowd flees to South America to find the ringleader of a shifter terrorist organization deep in the Amazon. The world is on the brink of all-out war between shifters and humans, and Jacks needs to somehow broker a deal for peace.
But a special U.S. intelligence agency emerges as a new, possibly even more dangerous enemy. Both the terrorists and the U.S. government will stop at nothing to get an arcane codex that could unleash an unstoppable threat to mankind or exterminate werecats everywhere.
While Jacks dodges danger from both sides and decodes the ancient book, he’s left with the impossible choice of how to use it.
This action-packed gay shapeshifter romance brings Andrew J. Peters' Werecat series to its stunning conclusion. Peters tells fans that his original Werecat romance was an experiment. He asked himself: What would a gothic paranormal romance story look like with gay men in prominent roles? Now, this Romance Review Readers Choice finalist reaches its apex, as Jacks Dowd makes peace with his Werecat nature.
Then, one day, in the middle of his a grueling schedule of off-the-books jobs, a raid on a bodega pushes Jacks to transform to fend off a group of gun-wielding gangbangers.
Jacks scrambles to disguise the truth, but the incident leaves a thundering wake of questions. The police want to know what really happened to a freaked-out young thug in custody. Farzan, who has been crushing hard on Jacks since they met, begins to doubt that it’s safe to have Jacks living with him. Jacks wants to know where he belongs: with the man who took him in when no one else would or among his own kind. As he searches for answers, Jacks is confronted by a secret shifter society The Glaring. They have come to avenge the death of Jacks’ maker and to claim a powerful item that Benoit left behind.
The mystery of Ryhope Wood, Britain's last fragment of primeval forest, consumed George Huxley's entire long life. Now, after his death, his sons have taken up his work. But what they discover is numinous and perilous beyond all expectation.
For the Wood, larger inside than out, is a labyrinth full of myths come to life, "mythagos" that can change you forever. A labyrinth where love and beauty haunt your dreams. . .and may drive you insane.
