“This is a war. The war. There is no stopping; no getting out. You’re in this  just like the rest of us  to the end.”
Driven out of hell and with nothing to lose, the Fallen wage open warfare against the angels on the streets. And they’re winning.
As the balance tips towards the darkness, Alice – barely recovered from her own ordeal in hell and struggling to start over – once again finds herself in the eye of the storm. But with the chaos spreading and the Archangel Michael determined to destroy Lucifer whatever the cost, is the price simply too high?

About the author

Born in Wales in the UK, Lou Morgan grew up in a house with an attic full of spiders and now lives on the south coast of England with her husband, son and the obligatory cat. Her short fiction has been published by the British Fantasy Society, Hub Fiction and Morpheus Tales, and most recently her story “At the Sign of the Black Dove” appeared in the Pandemonium: Stories of the Apocalypse anthology. She drinks a lot of tea, is very mouthy about archery and likes cathedrals, comics and Christopher Nolan movies. And probably things beginning with other letters of the alphabet, too.
She can be found online at loumorgan.co.uk, or – far too often – wasting time on Twitter as @LouMorgan. Blood and Feathers: Rebellion is her second novel.

Perfect for fans of The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, this intriguing urban fantasy follows the story of Kat Chanter, who discovers that the world she knows is controlled by ancient creatures who feed on blood. And she might just be one of them ...

Then she heard it; faintly at first, but quickly becoming louder. Her faint prickle of unease became a crawling apprehension that made every hair on her body stand on end. Because there was no mistaking the sound that was drawing ever closer. The excited baying, the mournful howls of wild creatures as they grouped and closed in for the kill.

Cold dread swept through her, chilling her to the bone. The pack was here.



The future seems hopeless, and Kat's life is in the balance. Is it possible that she holds the key to their survival? Because if she can't find a way to unlock the knowledge within herself, it won't just be her life that's forfeit, but also the lives of the unalil, and of their captive sister . . .



This is a novella length episode of Dark Child (The Awakening)*, first in the Dark Child series. All five episodes are also available bundled as Dark Child (The Awakening): Omnibus Edition. Look out for the next in this series, Dark Child (Covens Rising) available July 2014.

Dead? Kat clenched her fists, her stomach a writhing tangle of knots. Her pulse thundered in her ears.

Had this all been an elaborate ruse to trap her? The platelet study; the offer to come and work at the Hema Castus Research Institute; the special attention from Director Norris ... Surely they'd have had no way of knowing who she was. Still, if the Directorate controlled Hema Castus, and the Directorate wanted her imprisoned, even dead, everything took on a much more sinister light. And anyway, why did the Directorate want her dead?



Kat has always known she's special. Different. But finding out why is still a shock, especially when she discovers the malevolent Directorate, a clandestine organization of untold power, have put a price on her head.



Forced into hiding in the remote White Mountains, Kat's life is suddenly in the hands of the wild and dangerous unalil. But trusting her new protectors isn't easy, since they seem almost as terrifying as the killers who pursue her . . .

Despite all the people surrounding them she still couldn't help feeling Alek was . . . dangerous. There was so much pent-up savagery in him. She let out a shaky breath as his dark blue eyes caught hers and held.

Then his hands slid around her wrists, alive with energy, and she forgot to be afraid. It wasn't just a touch, but a caress that left melting warmth in its wake.

She'd heard the words before, but not spoken like this. His voice was liquid honey, lingering where others like Miklós had hurried, and imbuing each word with textured layers of additional meaning, as what had been stock phrases took on erotic promise.

"Whatever you desire, you need only ask," he added softly at the end, as he lifted her wrist and brushed it with his lips. When her breath caught, he gave a slow smile, displaying sharp white teeth.



Kat's unalil protectors are on high alert in their mountain stronghold. The remote location has delayed the Directorate finding Kat, but now an attack seems imminent.



Kat's finding her 24/7 guard frustrating, especially since Alek, most predatory of the unalil, seems determined to take his role as protector to the next level . . .

About Marcus Wynne and The Sword of Michael:
"Marcus Wynne has created a rare find--an action packed book with characters filled with heart and soul. This is a true "keeper." You have to keep reading--and then keep to read again and savor one more because the story is so rich."¾Heather Graham, #1 New York Times best-selling fantasy author

"I'm glad to welcome Marcus Wynne back to the author fold. His own personal journey through Hell and hardship has been transformed into a gripping, action-filled urban fantasy about a man's Journey to Hell to ave all those he loves best in the world. A great debut in a new genre by one of the best action writers in any genre."¾David Morrell, New York Times best-selling author of Murder as a Fine Art

"Marcus Wynne's newest page-turner --- his best to date --- rips the veil off of our everyday perceptions to reveal the eternal battle between good and evil that takes place around us and, yes, within us. Labeled as fiction, THE SWORD OF MICHAEL is very real, a story where even Humanists and Theists can find common and exciting ground and which features a New Age shaman exorcist who hopefully has a real world model. If he doesn't, we are all in deep trouble. ¾"Joseph Hartlaub, Senior reviewer, BOOKREPORTER.COM

"Marcus Wynne delivers again . . . Shamanic practitioner Marius Winter risks all traveling to the depths of Hell to save everything and everyone important to him. "¾WWE Legend Lance Storm

"In Sword of Michael, my good friend Marcus Wynne has created a world where the fight between good and evil is as close as the next visitor or the next town over. The action, both physical and spiritual, jumps off the pages and exposes you to a side of conflict and human nature that is rarely considered by the conscious mind. Sword of Michael provides a modern urban backdrop for a story that is as powerful as it is personal."¾Senior Training NCO, John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center, SERE Cadre, Fort Bragg

About Marcus Wynne's No Other Option:
_At the heart of this thoughtful thriller is a compelling question: why does a man go bad? Intelligent in content and competent in execution, this is a most suspenseful and entertaining tale.Ó¾Publishers Weekly
NEW ENTRY IN THE BESTSELLING MONSTER HUNTER INTERNATIONAL SERIES BY DRAGON AWARD–WINNING AUTHORS LARRY CORREIA AND SARAH A. HOYT


When Owen Pitt and the rest of the Monster Hunter International crew are called away to mount a month’s-long rescue mission in a monster-infested nightmare dimension, Julie Shackleford—Owen’s wife and descendant of MHI founder Bubba Shackleford—is left behind. Her task: hold down the fort and take care of her new baby son Ray. Julie’s devoted to the little guy, but the slow pace of office work and maternity leave are starting to get to her. But when a routine field call brings her face-to-face with an unspeakable evil calling itself Brother Death, she’ll get more excitement than she ever hoped for.


Julie is the Guardian of a powerful ancient artifact known as the Kamaresh Yar, and Brother Death wants it. In the wrong hands, it could destroy reality as we know it. Julie would die before giving it up.


Then Ray goes missing, taken by Brother Death. The price for his safe return: the Kamaresh Yar. If Julie doesn’t hand over the artifact it means death—or worse—for baby Ray. With no other choice left to her, Julie agrees to Brother Death’s demands. But when you’re dealing with an ancient evil, the devil is in the details.


To reclaim her son, Julie Shackleford will have to fight her way through necromantic death cults, child-stealing monsters, and worse. And she’ll have to do it all before Brother Death can unleash the Kamaresh Yar.


It’s one woman against an army of monsters. But Julie Shackleford is no ordinary woman—she’s one tough mother!

About Larry Correia and the Monster Hunter International series:

The #1 New York Times bestselling author's ultimate edition of his wildly successful first novel featuring his "preferred text"—and including his special Neverwhere tale "How the Marquis Got His Coat Back"

Published in 1997, Neil Gaiman's darkly hypnotic first novel, Neverwhere, heralded the arrival of a major talent and became a touchstone of urban fantasy. Over the years, a number of versions were produced both in the U.S. and the U.K. Now Gaiman's preferred edition of his classic novel reconciles these works and reinstates a number of scenes cut from the original published books.

Neverwhere is the story of Richard Mayhew, a young London businessman with a good heart and an ordinary life, which is changed forever when he discovers a girl bleeding on the sidewalk. He stops to help her—an act of kindness that plunges him into a world he never dreamed existed.

Slipping through the cracks of reality, Richard lands in the Neverwhere—a London of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth. The Neverwhere is home to Door, the mysterious girl Richard helped in the London Above. Door, a noblewoman whose family has been murdered, is on a quest to find the agent that slaughtered her family and thwart the destruction of this underworld kingdom. If Richard is ever to return to his former life, he must join the journey to save Door's world—and find a way to survive.

A hallucinatory fantasia of mystery, mythology, and terror that "draws equally from George Lucas, Monty Python, Doctor Who, and John Milton" (USA Today), Neverwhere is an "Alice in Wonderland with a punk edge" (Poppy Z. Brite), "that is both the stuff of dreams and nightmares" (San Diego Union-Tribune).
