Dorian Benoit is no stranger to adversity, but even growing up gay wasn’t enough to prepare him for the troubles that his telekinetic powers would bring.
Not long after Dorian moves out on his own, an unnatural affliction starts to take hold of the locals, turning his chances at a new life into a hellish nightmare. He soon finds himself in a fight for survival against the ones responsible who have taken an interest in using his powers to further their sinister cause. A world unseen by mortal eyes for centuries is about to make its cataclysmic return with Dorian caught in the middle.
The Immortal Coil series is a high-stakes journey of self-discovery as Dorian Benoit ascends from reluctant hero to demon-slaying savior. Inspired by mythology and folklore, it explores the familiar tones of urban fantasy to the unfathomable reaches of cosmic horror with a character-driven storyline that abolishes token stereotypes. Each sequel ups the ante as a diverse supernatural cast struggles to contain the apocalyptic events set in motion by the mysterious entities attempting to unravel modern civilization and beyond.
But now the consequences have caught up with me
I owe a favor to the powerful Knight of Grayhold, and the time has come to pay up.
And unless I do something clever, repaying that favor is going to get me killed...
Two items I've stolen for the Rebels, and I only need to steal one more thing for them.
Trouble is, it's in Last Judge Mountain, a secret military base left over from before the High Queen of the Elves conquered Earth.
There are things in Last Judge Mountain that should never again see the light of day.
And if I go into the mountain, I might never come out again...
Across both Alliances, I had thousands upon thousands of graveyards, cemeteries and catacombs under my control, waiting for me to set a suitable command system in place before reanimating the dead and turning my father's vision into reality.

Randl Gage and the BlackWing Pirates are on a collision course with the Prophet, each determined to destroy the other.
Enter an unknown, third player, and the stage is set for the ending of all worlds...
“Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—Washington Post
According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
A Houston College student trying to finish her degree, McKenzie has been working for the fae king for years, tracking vicious rebels who would claim the Realm. Her job isn't her only secret. For just as long, she's been in love with Kyol, the king's sword-master--and relationships between humans and fae are forbidden.
But any hope of a normal life is shattered when she's captured by Aren, the fierce and uncompromising rebel leader. He teaches her the forbidden fae language and tells her dark truths about the Court, all to persuade her to turn against the king. Time is running out, and as the fight starts to claim human lives, McKenzie has to decide once and for all whom to trust--and where she ultimately stands in the face of a cataclysmic civil war.
