What do a small-time card shark fresh out of the state foster system and a newly-expelled-from-college computer geek have in common? Desperation. And they live in apartments across the hall from each other. An ill-timed peek through a peephole and an impromptu omelet lead to a business venture that takes Charlie (she's the brawn) and Doug (he's the brains) into the strange worlds of bounty hunting and the supernatural.

**WARNING** Foul language, physical violence, and other graphic content abound in this novel. May not be suitable for readers younger than 15.

HERE'S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT ACES HIGH:

“I’ve read a lot of Elle Casey and wasn't sure what to expect of a collaboration with another author, but holy crap. This book was an insane ride. I completely embarrassed myself laughing so hard. I absolutely love Charlie and Doug. They are completely different but so real. Oh to have a friend like either of them. They get themselves into some crazy situations and trying to get themselves out is the best part. Wasn't really expecting a few of the turns the book made, but enjoyed it every step of the way. Hopefully there will be a second book, because I need to see where they are going.” ~ Amazon Reviewer

“This was absolutely effing hilarious. I haven’t laughed so hard in ages. To say that I loved the duet is lightly put, I went s***balls over it… I loved the supernatural angle this book had. And damn, the situations they got themselves in were more than crazy. I really want to read some more of this series.” ~
Catalina, Amazon Reviewer

“I am a huge Elle Casey fan so I am not surprised that this book is as good as it is. However, this is the first time I have read anything by Jason Brant. Boy was I pleasantly surprised!… Add Crazy characters and many surprise twists, I was very entertained! Kudos and applause to Jason and Elle for writing a very engaging book. I am looking forward to more from these two.” ~
Lori Ramey, Amazon Reviewer

HERE'S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT WAR OF THE FAE, BOOK 2:

"Call To Arms was even BETTER than its predecessor, The Changelings. I had no idea that my weekend would include reading all 4 of these books in succession - normally I prefer to get to bed before the sun rises. But holy pixie, Ms. Casey deftly writes with a passion, clarity, and humor that consumes the mind and engages readers of any age." ~Betweenthebind.blogspot.com

“Call to Arms is truly an amazing sequel and I absolutely loved reading it.” ~Tiffany Loves Books, Blogger and Reviewer

"Book 2 did NOT disappoint! I read it in just a few short hours and now I'm very angry with myself for not slowing down." ~ Shannon-Goodreads Member Review

"Wow - just as brilliant as the first book, and I am SO HAPPY that this is the case. The book was just as thrilling, mysterious, funny (most importantly because I would've hated for Jayne to change at all) with more twists and turns in the lives of the most brilliant characters.” ~ Amazon.co.uk reviewer

A message from the author: A reader fan recently set up a blog dedicated to casting the actors for the War of the Fae movie. No, it is not in production to be made into a movie, nor have I sold the rights to anyone for the movie. But just in case I ever do, my fans will be sure the casting director has a complete line-up ready!

There is a distinct hint of Armageddon in the air. According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witch-finders are getting ready to fight the good fight, armed with awkwardly antiquated instructions and stick pins. Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. . . . Right. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan.

Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon -- each of whom has lived among Earth's mortals for many millennia and has grown rather fond of the lifestyle -- are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the Antichrist (which is a shame, as he's a really nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. . . .

First published in 1990, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly dark and screamingly funny take on humankind's final judgment is back -- and just in time -- in a new hardcover edition (which includes an introduction by the authors, comments by each about the other, and answers to some still-burning questions about their wildly popular collaborative effort) that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all things.

NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR, ELLE CASEY, brings readers Book 3 in the YA Urban Fantasy WAR OF THE FAE Series.

The animosity between Darkness and Light continues to grow, as do Jayne's supernatural, elemental abilities in the Green Forest. Long-lost friends arrive, new friends leave, passion burns, and mysteries abound. What is Light and what is Dark? Who can the Light Fae trust? Who will be left standing in the end and whose side will they be on? Nothing is ever as it seems, and all is fair in love and War of the Fae.

Content Warning: Mild violence and significant foul language within. Meant for older Young Adult readers (age 15+).

HERE'S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT WAR OF THE FAE, BOOK 3:

"The one thing I can always count on from author Elle Casey, is her uncanny ability to hook a reader into a story or series, and tie them relentlessly into the journey of not only the main protagonist, but also all supporting characters, both good and not so nice. The War of the Fae series is perhaps one of the best examples of this magical connection with her readers. Casey has created a whole world of characters that you very quickly care very much about." ~Lisa Ann, Reviewer on Goodreads

“The drama flew through the roof. Jayne's powers are growing and the demand on her is insane. What I really loved about Call to Arms was the intricacy of the plot and how issues were placed against issues and desires were placed against desires to create a world that did not adhere to a strict and typical diet of 'paranormal young adult fantasy'. Jayne is still cracking jokes, is still cursing, is still making stupid decisions, is still relateable, still has ulterior motives, still is Jayne.” ~Marlon Balraj, Blogger and Reviewer at We Live and Breathe Books blog

“Better and better.  I can't think if a single thing in this series that I don't like and that is saying a lot. The further I get into it the more I can't stop reading. Definitely a series you want to read in order and well worth the read.” ~ Amazon Reviewer

“Each book gives you more and more.  Books 1,2,3 were fantastic. Each book after gives you more and more insight into each character. I am reading these books faster then most because the writer keeps me interested. The anticipation of the next twist is what keeps me wanting to turn the page.” ~ Margaret Thomas, Amazon Reviewer

NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR, ELLE CASEY, brings readers Book 4 in the YA Urban Fantasy WAR OF THE FAE Series.

Will the fae be able to make the sacrifices they must to survive?

Jayne Sparks and her Light Fae changeling friends face off in the final battle against their enemies. But the identify of their true enemies isn't as clear as it once was. Are they the ones breaking down their doors ... or perhaps another entity, hiding in the shadows?

Friends come and go, bridges burned are rebuilt, love is lost and found. The survival of the fae depends on the answer to one question: Which burns hotter ... hatred or hope?

Content Warning: Mild violence and significant foul language within. Meant for older Young Adult readers (age 15+).

HERE'S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT WAR OF THE FAE, BOOK 4:

“This series was very hard to put down. I must confess that I laughed and cried throughout this wonderful journey… I would love to see a movie or mini series form from this. Elle Casey has jumped by leaps and bounds to my personal top authors, sharing the space with David Dalglish, R.A. Salvador, Ed Greenwood and Anne McCaffrey....she kicks ass.” ~ Dave Snow, Amazon reviewer

“I cannot begin to explain how much I loved this series. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! I am recommending it to everyone I know!! Such a fun read. Great characters and action. Will not disappoint. Jayne is one of those lead characters that you will just fall in love with. Funny, strong, and extremely likeable. I lost track of time while reading these books. Didn't know what day it was, what time it was...or what my family was doing!!! :)  Elle Casey reminds me why I love to try new authors.” ~ Cristina, Goodreads Reviewer

“This book is designed for teenagers and young adults, but it's such a humorous story that any reader will enjoy it. The characters are still just as funny as they were in the other books…This is a must read for anyone who loves fantasy, magic, and a funny story that is extremely complicated but so well-written that you don't even notice all the complexities.” ~ J.C. Cauthon, Goodreads Reviewer

“I love this author… I love that she doesn't spend page after page of boring recap from the previous book. She writes in a manner that will have you laughing out loud (which means people look at me funny because they have no idea what i am doing), crying when she sets it up, and as you read you feel the emotions the main character does. I have read some other series she has done. She always pulls you in and doesn't let you go until she is ready.” ~ adelie21, Amazon reviewer
