Filled with fascinating characters and stunning adventures, The Last Monster Hunter will transport you to an enchanted realm where magic makes dreams come true.
Theodore Beckett knows nothing of magic until his bedroom wall smiles…
… and then tries to kill him.
Doors to a whole new world suddenly crash open for Theo, a world filled with monsters, magicians, and dragons. His role in this secret society slowly unfolds when Theo learns he is the son of its lost hero. The man who defeated the Orc King. Elijah Dros.
A new war looms, and Theo realizes his introduction might not be a coincidence. He may well be the last Hunter. But with nobody to teach him, how will Theo ever learn to protect himself, let alone others?
I’m waaaay behind as usual on my reading list but I thought I’d come back with a quick post of some upcoming 2020 books I’ll hopefully get around to this year when they drop.
Two travelers. One treasure. Will feuding twin princesses be the key to finding the priceless riches, or will Soryn and Lucas become casualties of a deadly royal conflict?
Childhood friends Soryn and Lucas leave their small village in quest of fame and fortune, thrilled at their good luck when a beggar man on the road tells them of a treasure hidden within the neighboring Kingdom of Dahut. In exchange for a bit of their food, the beggar offers directions on where these riches can be found, leaving out an important detail – the castle in which it is hidden is the home of Dahut’s reigning royalty, twin princesses in a violent battle for the queen’s crown.
Will Soryn and Lucas lose themselves in the brutal political fight between Princess Elana and Princess Vivian, or can the two of them preserve their friendship and their lives – while stealing the treasure from the depths of Castle Laurent?
A beastly prince. A beautiful servant. Can two imperfect souls learn to love before the last petal falls?
When a kraken attack leaves her family destitute, Rosemary Mercer strikes a bargain. She will serve Prince Darian for a year to erase her father’s debts. But there is more at stake than money, and the prince’s beastly curse changes more than his appearance. Can Rosemary uphold her end of the bargain without getting caught in the spell herself?
A lifetime of selfishness and pride has cost Prince Darian his humanity, his throne, and the means to make it right. As shadows gather around his kingdom, his only hope for redemption is the brave servant who refuses to be intimidated by his monstrous form. But would she still help him if she were free to leave?
Can Rosemary and Darian see past appearances and find the beauty within themselves? Or will they be torn apart by a plot much bigger than an evil curse?
The Matchmaker calls…
…and only the gifted will be selected.
As Mei and the other girls of her village are sent on a harrowing journey across the frozen plains, she wonders what exactly they are selected for. Their guide, a mysterious warrior with a giant fox won’t reveal any secrets, but seems to have a protective eye for her.
The new Emperor is said to be dangerous young man, with dark abilities. And, while the others think they’re being matched to become his Empress, Mei suspects something more.
Her hopes to honor her family name, and the magical red lantern are all that give her strength as dragons, mystical warriors, and sneaky gods stand in her way to the truth.
That–and the spirits of her ancestors.
“Our chaos is beautiful… and terrifying. Can’t you feel my heart beating in your chest? Because I feel your breath in my lungs.”
The dead don’t rise…
When I kill men, they usually stay buried.
There’s a corpse on the loose. My plan is to track it down and kill it (for real this time), before the Red Sisters discover what I’ve done.
Or worse, what I am.
They’ve already promised to make me pyre fodder. One more mishap and that empty grave is mine.
But well-laid plans become improvisation. Castles burn. Provinces are fled in the dead of night. Stupid girls get snared in cursed woods, and hearts never do as told.
The gods are dead…
Yet, I was cursed as I stared into neon eyes and saw the celestial light. I tasted the salt of a Bone Vow, and I’ve kissed poison from the lips of the Half-Wolf prince.
“It’s power. It’s weakness. It’s minuscule and infinite.”
