Eight tales of Faerie magic and adventure, spanning the centuries from Ancient Ireland to a near-distant future. Includes new, exclusive content! 


BENEATH THE KNOWE 
Can music overcome fey magic? When the chieftain's infant son is stolen away by the fey folk of the Bright Court, Maeve Donnelly journeys beneath the faerie hill to save the child. Her only weapon is a simple pennywhistle, and the music running in her bard-gifted blood. 

FAE HORSE 
Accused as witch, Eileen must flee for her life, leaving her village and true love behind. With her pursuers closing in, she chances across a strange black horse - but does she dare to pay the price of escape?  

BREAKING THE BROWNIE CODE *New, exclusive content* 
Feeyah MacGuire is not very good at being a Brownie—but when she breaks the sacred code of their kind she faces banishment… or worse. 

MUSIC’S PRICE 
Jeremy Cahill’s gifted cello playing calls the creatures of Faerie to him. As a boy, his Irish grandmother crafts him a charm to keep the fair folk at bay—but when it finally fails, Jeremy must face the terrifying power of Faerie…alone. 

FEYLAND: THE FIRST ADVENTURE 
Jennet Carter never thought hacking into her dad's new epic-fantasy sim-game would be so exciting... or dangerous. Behind the interface, dark forces lie in wait, leading her toward a battle that will test her to her limits and cost her more than she ever imagined. 

HOW TO BABYSIT A CHANGELING 
When a mortal boy is exchanged for a hideous faerie creature, Marny Fanalua steps up to help her friends in their battle against the Dark Court. *NOTE * The events in this novella occur simultaneously with Feyland: The Twilight Kingdom. Reading the complete Feyland Trilogy first is recommended if you would like to avoid spoilers. 

TRINKET 
Violet Yamaguchi can't wait to play the immersive new computer game, Feyland--but she doesn't suspect the game wants something in return... 

BREA’S TALE: ARRIVAL 
When a faerie girl is sent on a mission to the mortal world, she must learn to navigate the intricacies of life among humans - but will she survive undetected? *NOTE* This story falls in between Spark and Royal in the Feyguard books, but it can be read as a stand-alone without spoiling anything.

“I’m virtually speechless when it comes to this novel. I have not found an author that I adore the writing style of this much since Jennifer L. Armentrout. The world that this author created was amazing.” - Brittany's Book Reviews

Eighteen year old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She’s not your every day quasi-demon, part-demon and part-human, girl. For the past five years, Myla has lived for the days she gets to fight in Purgatory’s arena. When souls want a trial by combat for their right to enter Heaven or Hell, they go up against her, and she hasn’t lost a battle yet.

But as she starts her senior year at Purgatory High, the arena fights aren’t enough to keep her spirits up anymore. When the demons start to act weird, even for demons, and the King of the Demons, Armageddon, shows up at Myla’s school, she knows that things are changing and it’s not looking good for the quasi-demons.

Myla starts to question everything, and doesn’t like the answers she finds.

What happened seventeen years ago that turned the quasi-demons into slave labor? Why was her mom always so sad? And why won’t anyone tell her who her father is? Things heat up when Myla meets Lincoln, the High Prince of the Thrax, a super sexy part-human and part-angel demon hunter. But what’s a quasi-demon girl to do when she falls for a demon hunter? It’s a good thing that Myla’s not afraid of breaking a few rules. With a love worth fighting for, Myla’s going to shake up Purgatory.

"Wow, I loved this novel."- Koeur's Book Reviews

Ideal for readers who enjoy kick-ass chicks, gamma guys, paranormal romance, urban fantasy and happily ever afters.
