A dragon with a fear of flying...

 

Killian Brennan is a dragon with a problem. Since having helped the Tuatha Dé defeat the Fomori—the Celtic gods of Chaos— he’s been working for the Irish war goddess Macha—currently known as Maeve McKinley, Queen of Bloodlong. And while he’s a fierce Fianna warrior who will stop at nothing to defend his queen, his brothers-at-arms, and Ireland in general, he does have one weakness. He hasn’t been able to fly in centuries. Now the demons he helped lock up have escaped their prison and they’re coming for Killian and the rest of the Fianna who selflessly aided the Fae. But rather than call out Killian, the Fomori are gunning for something far more valuable to this vampire dragon than merely his wings. They’re aiming straight for his heart—for the one woman who can heal his misery.

 

Falls for a witch who can’t keep her feet on the ground…

 

Bridget McKinley is accustomed to waking in the middle of the night, her long hair plaited tight against her face, blinding her vision and suffocating her breath. But what’s a witch to do when the one soul who can help her master her magick—her grandmother, Maeve—has gone missing? Land her ass on the tiny autonomous island kingdom of Bloodlong, that’s what. At least there she can start to get to the bottom of things. But when her unruly hair starts acting out of character, she must lean on a dragon with a secret even darker—and more dangerous—than her own.

 

And with the storm of Celtic demons closing in, Bridget and Killian soon find themselves TANGLED in magick so deep, it may very well kill them both.

"When the Dord Fiann—the hunting horn of Ireland's Fianna warriors—sounds three times, the great chieftain will rise again and fight old enemies who have returned." —Maeve McKinley, Sovereign, Bloodlong.

Moira McKinley is Queen of Organized Chaos. She's surrogate mother to her eleven orphaned sisters, eats cereal for dinner, and grows window box herbs with a green thumb. In other words, she lives a pretty normal life. That is until she receives news that challenges everything she holds dear…

It isn't every day an Irish solicitor shows up on your suburban New York doorstep telling you your eighty-five-year-old granny has gone missing. And stranger still, reveals that the woman who has nurtured you for the last ten years isn't the soul you thought she was, but rather is some ancient guardian descended of the gods and whose first duty is not to her human bloodline but to a clan of immortal warriors tasked with saving the world.

That and the fact the gates of the Celtic Otherworld-Mag Mell-have just crashed, unleashing the vilest of Fae demons. And as an extra kicker, just in case all that other stuff isn't enough to cozy your brain up to, you and your sisters aren't really as batcrazy as you always thought. Those little habits you shucked up to nuisance, like waking up in the middle of the night wrapped in thorny briars…while still in your bed…are all par for the course when you're made up of stuff that feeds the dark side.

Stuff those Fae demons are on the hunt after.

Stuff those immortal warriors are determined to protect.

Stuff you might all end up dead over.

Stuff only missing granny holds the key to…

 SEBASTIAN is the first book in National Bestselling Author Angelique Armae’s Immortal Valentine series, a spin-off from The Paradisian Chronicles. The Valentine brothers are Hell's sexiest bad boys. They're also Lucifer's most defiant nephews, working for Paradise and protecting mankind. They're half-fallen angel, half-mortal, save for Sebastian who is a triplicate soul. He's one-third vampire. He's also a rebel and fights Hell's dope dealers daily, trying to destroy their lethal narcotics trade, specifically the flow of Crypt Candy on earth.

Sophie Gates isn’t your average Criminal Profiler.  She’s a Paradisian Scholar—an immortal human trained in the ways of Heaven and Hell. She’s also a member of the archangel Gabriel’s Gothic Garrison.  So when a fellow Scholar turns up dead of a supernatural drug overdose, Sophie is called in to investigate the crime.  She believes the killer to be a Diabolus Sacratus--a revered demonic drug lord specializing in Crypt Candy, a highly addictive, and sometimes lethal, hallucinogenic distributed among Lucifer’s army. 

To proceed with her analysis and help track down the murderer, Sophie is forced to work with the sexy-as-sin Sebastian Valentine, a Nephilim vampire with a stake in eNVee Laboratories. As the pharmaceutical company catering to paranormal clientele this side of Heaven and Hell, eNVee Labs is the only company on Earth capable of manufacturing Crypt Candy.  Unfortunately, the main component of the drug is a residual substance found in coffins and crypts inhabited by Nephilim vampires. With evidence building against her newly assigned partner, Sophie is quick to make Sebastian Valentine her number one suspect.  If only she didn’t find the man as addictive as the drug he’s capable of manufacturing…

Born to a fallen angel and a mortal mother, Sebastian Valentine is a prince of Hell. As a defrocked Templar, he escaped execution thanks to a Vampiric relative, and now exists as a Triplicate soul—angel, human and vampire. His hopes of redemption are slim.  The only way to save him from eternal damnation is to find the one woman, deemed by fate, to be his life mate.  To do so, he’d have to convince her to share his Hellish soul.  And that’s one sacrifice, he’s certain, no sane person would dare make. 

Paying back a debt owed to the archangel Gabriel, Sebastian joins forces with Sophie to hunt down a demonic killer.   But to find this unholy criminal, Sebastian will have to reveal secrets of Sophie’s past she’s not aware of, a dark legacy that will put her next on the hit list of the Diabolus Sacratus they’re hunting…

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work by the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryen—the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria—took up residence on Dragonstone. Fire & Blood begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.

What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire, but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.

With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire & Blood is the the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros.

Praise for Fire & Blood

“I love it so much. Fire & Blood is Martin Unbound . . . and I couldn’t put it down. . . . There’s an addictive quality to the prose that’s outright gossipy. . . . The obvious comparison here is J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion. . . . Writing centuries after the events he’s describing, the Gyldayn voice complicates this game of thrones with a clash of perspectives and a storm of debatable facts. . . . Heavy stuff, but Fire & Blood flies.”—Entertainment Weekly

“A masterpiece of popular historical fiction.” —The Sunday Times

“The saga is a rich and dark one, full of both the title’s promised elements. . . . It’s hard not to thrill to the descriptions of dragons engaging in airborne combat, or the dilemma of whether defeated rulers should ‘bend the knee,’ ‘take the black’ and join the Night’s Watch, or simply meet an inventive and horrible end.”—The Guardian
