Shadow Reaper: An Urban Fantasy

Ann Gimpel Books, LLC
This book will become available on December 9, 2019. You will not be charged until it is released.

The dead are restless, and a whole lot less cooperative than they have been. That was true even before I drew the short straw and ended up with Vampire duty.

Since then, Reaping has taken way more time. So much, I’m worried I’ll lose all the clients from the career that actually feeds me. I run a small private pilot school. It pays most of the bills and means I don’t have to keep regular hours.

Death wants me to remain in one piece. She’s bailed me out often enough, she’s all but ordered me to find other employment. I just smile and nod after our little talks, and then I climb back into a cockpit.

Our last toe-to-toe didn’t go so well. She went and assigned Vampires to me. That’s when Reaping turned into a million-hour-a-week job. I can almost hear the Reaper who was stuck with them before, laughing his head off.

I shepherd souls to the other side. Vampires have zero interest in leaving, but I have a quota to fill. Means I have to trick them, but it didn’t work for long. They’re onto me. Damn Death, anyway. She painted a target on my back, and now the Vamps are out for blood.

In more ways than one.

 1200 pages of spellbinding dystopian urban fantasy.

 In a world with few choices, evil runs rampant and none of the old rules apply. What began as an exploratory mission to see if anything is left on Earth turns sour fast. A Vampire attack, a possessed priest, and a gateway to Hell mean fallout from the spell gone bad that pinned everyone in South America is far from finished.

 Retreat is tempting, but nowhere is safe.

 Evil is leaching in from somewhere. If they can’t find the breach, they’re finished.

 Deceived

Vampires aren’t supposed to feel anything beyond hunger and bloodlust, but Viktor still feels a whole lot. He hates what he’s become, but there’s no escape. Not from the dying city smothering him, or from his maker, an arrogant tyrant who demands absolute loyalty.

 Twisted

The sea is the only life Juan’s ever known—not counting the decade he spent as a Vampire. Those years gave him a healthy aversion for anything supernatural, but he’s a shifter now. It’s way better than being one of the undead, but he still doesn’t trust magic. Paired up with Aura to teach him, he falls and falls hard, but she spurns his advances.

 Abandoned

Recco misses his cozy lab and well-organized veterinary clinic, but ten years as a Vampire stripped him of any illusions. Life is done handing him everything he wants. He could rail against fate—which never bought him much—or suck it up and keep going. Defeating the Cataclysm broke Vampirism’s hold on him, though. Even better, it threw Zoe square in his path and kicked open the door for him to bond with a wolf.

PRAISE FOR THE BITTER HARVEST SERIES:

“I am a huge fan of this author's work having read quite a few of her different series of books and I was so surprised by how different this book is from her other series, surprised and blown away by how amazing it was and how much I adored this book!!!!” Goodreads Review

“What a cool new world and an awesome story. A spell gone wrong and a cataclysm has hit, trapping the people, shifters, and vampires in Ushuaia. The vampires are at the top of the food chain and everything is dying.” Goodreads Review

“Just my kind of story. The sea, a ship, someone named Viktor to make the story fantastic. He just wants to get back to a life on the sea even though it’s tough. Obviously, it’s not going to be easy. Not to be missed. The audio book has a narrator that has you listening until the end.” Goodreads Review

“Entertaining and I loved the premise! It's been awhile since I've read a vampire book, and I really enjoyed Ann Gimpel's storytelling.” Goodreads Review

Another Dragon Fantasy for everyone who fell in love with the Dragon Lore Series and my other dragon-saturated books.


Scientists don’t believe in dragons.


Dragons never think much about humans at all.

Maybe it’s time for their worlds to collide amidst the dangerous beauty of Antarctica.


 Doctor and biochemist, Erin signed up for six months aboard an Antarctic research ship to escape her stifling surgery practice. Jerked from her cozy cabin, she’s dumped in an ice cave by men who assume she’s dead.

Konstantin and Katya, twins and dragon shifters, have lived miles beneath the polar ice cap for hundreds of years. Other dragons left, but they stuck it out. When several humans—all but two of them dead—end up not far from their lair, the opportunity is too good to pass up.

If the lore is to be believed, humans can become dragon shifters. Delighted by a simple solution to their enforced isolation, the dragons lure the humans to their home. Surely, they’ll be thrilled by the prospect of becoming magical.

Or not.

Too bad no one shared the script with the humans. Science be damned, they’re horrorstruck in the face of fire-breathing dragons. All they want is to escape, but home is thousands of miles away.


READER PRAISE FOR THE ICE DRAGON SERIES:

Two humans destined to die in the ice...two last dragon shifters on earth...throw in some sea serpents and you have yourself an intriguing read and a tail that makes your heart sing. Goodreads Review

Another amazing book by Ann Gimpel. The world building in this new series is well WOW. The characters are terrific; bigger than life and not from this world. Goodreads Review 

I love how descriptive this story is, I think that really heightens my imagination to a point of not only becoming a part of the story but actually seeing it... like watching an action-packed movie. Goodreads Review

When the humans are challenged with a life or death dilemma, this new world entices them but this fantasy isn't made for wimps. Goodreads Review

Another Dragon Fantasy for everyone who fell in love with the Dragon Lore Series.

I have a treat for you! A brand new DRAGON LORE book. This is a spin-off from the top-selling Dragon Lore series and can be read as a standalone. 

Aegir, the Selkie king, has a lot on his mind. He and his pod all but raised a young seer, and it damn near kills him to turn the boy over to his father. Especially when the father makes it abundantly clear he plans to erase the lad’s memories of his first two years.

Fuming, Aegir retreats to an island in the Orkney chain that holds a gateway to Arcadia, a magical land protecting the source of White Magic. One morning, a strange Selkie catches his eye. Alarmed, he swims out to investigate. Unknown Selkies are bad news. Either spies or rejects from their own pods, they’re never welcome.

Raene spends most of her time running a small bakeshop in the Highlands, but she seeks refuge in the sea once a year. She’s only just taken her seal form when another Selkie accosts her. It’s obvious he wants her to clear out, but she stands her ground. It’s either the bravest thing she’s ever done, or the stupidest. He might be rude and abrasive, but she has a problem, and he’s her best bet to solve it.
