Listed below will be coupon codes for each book. This will discount the books, and two of them will actually be free. I’m thankful for my fans, and I feel they should get a little treat for the day we designate to give thanks.

So, Relinquished Mercy, the twins’ book, is finally out. Came out on Halloween. And as soon as I finished it, I realized what book will come next. First, a little shameless promotion. Here’s the links to buy this book all over the place:
Now, after this book, I’ll be writing Anaya and Galen’s story. They’ll need a little help, so I brought back Vax, who many people want more of, and Vlad, who I personally want a hell of a lot more of. If you didn’t see the Q&As I did, Andreas and Kazarian have another book coming soon too. There’s a lot of work for me to do and I’m loving my series more now than ever. Just because the heavenly war is over doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty more to see.
The Blood Fox: a legend known throughout Kurdak, spanning as far back as the Broken Treaty wars. A cunning warrior that wields two ancient swords with crimson and gold blades, the Blood Fox will kill anyone—for the right price.
No one knows the Blood Fox is actually Santo, a polite, introspective mercenary who avoids sleep whenever possible. She might look young and inexperienced, but looks can be deceiving, especially for one who is tormented by a curse that was meant to drive her mad over a century ago… and it hasn’t entirely failed. The truth is that Santo is only interested in answers. Who cursed her? Why? She has only hazy memories, and no leads.
That is, until the mythical Week of Colors arrives, and with it a visit from a long-time acquaintance. Traken is a sharp-tongued sorcerer with a sadistic streak, and he comes bearing an “invitation” from his master, a secretive lord who has been tracking her for a very long time. The Blood Fox agrees to meet him after receiving an ominous prediction that if she does so, she will learn the truth—but likely die in the process.
Review: I happen to love the character Santo. Seriously. Her politeness in most situations just makes the story so much more interesting. Her interaction with Traken is amusing because he’s so sarcastic and manipulative. The journey to Traken’s master is filled with plenty of turns. Traken doesn’t seem to be the most inspirational guy. In fact, he’s basically a murderer. His past lands Santo in hot water several times, though they manage to get out of each situation. In the end, it’s not surprising that Traken has more motives than even he understands in all the years he’s followed and studied Santo. The ending leaves me definitely wanting to know more about what happens to these two and how their strange relationship will continue to develop.

When criminals are convicted, they go to jail. When they have parahuman abilities, they go to Deep Six, the most secure prison facility in the world. Six thousand feet underground, nobody has ever escaped from the maximum security facility.
A parahuman terrorist called Misrule engineers a mass breakout, and it falls to a pair of prison guards to stop the world’s most dangerous criminals from reaching freedom, and Just Cause won’t be able to help them. Despite being overmatched and underpowered, the two guards must find a way to prevent the escapees from their ultimate goal.
Review: Took me a while to get to this but once I did I couldn’t put it down. We open the book with Katie, a corrections officer being reassigned to Deep Six. She’s a parahuman as well, though not a very powerful one in her own estimation. Foster is the officer assigned to help her adjust to the area. There’s clearly a spark between them but Katie has just gotten out of a bad marriage with a corrections officer and is determined never to date another one.
Misrule is a complex character. He’s self healing and virtually indestructible. His skin is excessively difficult to pierce and he shoots energy bolts from his hands. He’s a walking force of destruction who has done battle with the most famous parahumans for the sole reason of enjoying the control he has over others. He’s into everything illegal and is well educated. He’s ruthless and manipulative and honestly kind of interesting.
The story is action packed and I especially enjoy the underdog officers managing to take out a large portion of a criminal organization during the prison break. The fight scenes were detailed and just right for me, at least. The story was interesting and I would love to read more of the story.
