“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, half-demon and half-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 half-human and half-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.

When those closest to you see you only as a useless crippled child with no hope of a future, where do you find the strength to prove them wrong?

No one believed in Cara-AabiLynn, not even her own father and the woman who raised her. Born with a stunted arm and leg, those who she loved the most saw her as worthless and withheld their love from her. Given to a cruel man to cover her father's gambling debt, Cara's life of uncertainty became one of certain hardship and despair.

A trip to the dragonlands places her at a Dragon Rite where children bond with a dragon hatchling. Could she break from her life where she was destined to become a breeder and prove to all that a person's spirit cannot be measured by outward appearances and perceived limitations?

Start two different series based on the beloved fairy tale but never as it has been told before.

Beauty of the Beast series:

1. Alba #0 Beauty of the Beast

A very short teaser for the Beauty of the Beast series. This prequel focuses on Alba who later becomes known as Pluck as she starts her journey at age six.

2. Beauty of the Beast #1 The Mystic Rose- Part A: The Flower, The Sword, And The Kiss

The story of Beauty and the Beast with a twist. What if the woman was the one turned into the creature?

On the planet Terra when recorded history began, Man coexisted with the Necroms. Necroms were intelligent catlike humanoids. The dawn of this period was known as the First Age of Magic. In the Second Age of Magic, a war broke out between Man and the Necroms and by the middle of the Second Age, Man was nearly wiped from creation. Those who survived fled Wellspring and journeyed across the sea into the unknown, finding new homes and creating fortified domains. In the Third and final Age of Magic, Man established five island kingdoms: Commery, Fletching, Morgog, Swelldom, and Hort.

In the First Age of Metal, Man turned from the lost art of magic to the might of weapons as they discovered iron then steel. Large armies were created, and Man fought amongst themselves, forgetting the Necroms into myth. For generations the wars continued until an arranged marriage between the two strongest kingdoms of Commery and Morgog ceased the bloodshed, and so Man established the first Emperor and Empress and the tradition of Amalgamation. When both the Emperor and Empress of the Five Kingdoms died, the two strongest kingdoms' heirs married and crowned a new dynasty, and so began the Age of Amalgamation.

During this age, a witch placed a curse on a girl named Pluck. The curse had been meant for a boy, Prince Edward of Fletching, for stealing the Mystic Rose. Pluck transformed into a Necrom with the Kiss, Edward's first kiss as her only redemption. The Kiss wouldn't be an easy task since showing her face meant her death.

AaBack A Dark Fantasy Fairy Tale series:

3. AaBack's Grimm #1 Tale Of Two Worlds: The Wizard, The Battle Mage, And The Werewolf

Based on the Grimm short story series. The fairy tales you know with a wicked twist.

A woman, Jane, who seems out of place in her own world is transported to a world of fairy tales. All is not happy endings, for the world of AaBack's Grimm holds a dark and deadly secret for Jane.

In our world, Jane has lived life as if a curse has been on her her entire life. As an artist, she has created artwork of many fairy tale characters, but her favorite is the Beast from Beauty and the Beast. When she enters the World of Grimm, Jane comes across the Beast, and she's instantly struck with a need to help him. What Jane doesn't understand is that his curse is nothing like the ones in the fairy tales.

4. AaBack's Grimm #2 Friends Reunited: The Janus Beast, The Rose Beauty, And The Cursed Duckling

Jane finds that the World of Grimm is more frightening and dangerous than she first believed. She meets the Beast from Beauty and the Beast and discovers the curse that is on him is nothing like anything she could imagine.
