AS THE CLANS PLAN THEIR INVASION... As the Khans of the Clans gather on Strana Mechty to plan a new invasion of the Inner Sphere, Jade Falcon Khan Marthe Pryde strives to rebuild her Clan to its former glory. She bloods new warriors and wins others in Trials from other Clans, but she cannot waste any fine warrior—even those who are freeborn. She gives a Trinary composed entirely of freeborns to a freeborn Star Captain and allows Diana, the freeborn daughter of a Jade Falcon hero, to compete for a bloodname. TWO OF THEIR OWN CLASH IN BATTLE... The Khans of the Steel Vipers—long-standing rivals of the Falcons—use these radical moves against Marthe, attacking her in the Grand Council. In the midst of this war of intimidation, the Inner Sphere accomplishes the unthinkable—an invasion of Clan space. But even that cannot stop Marthe Pryde or the Steel Vipers as their ripening conflict explodes into war...

That is until he comes into his demonic powers and finds out everybody hates demon spawn. The problem? He might be the last hope for uniting the Overworld and saving us all. TWISTED SISTER OF MINE Justin Slade is living on borrowed time. The vampling curse is gnawing away at his body and his sanity. Because the cure might lie in his special kind of magic, Justin goes to Arcane University in a desperate attempt to unlock his powers. When he runs into his little sister, Ivy, at the university, Justin realizes this might be his chance to convince her he's not evil. Even better, she might be able to cure him if her shape-shifting protector, Bigglesworth, doesn't eat him first.

Even worse, the man is a complete jackass who won't give a straight answer to the simplest of questions. But when they stumble upon a secret army being grown by one of Daelissa's minions, they realize much more than a healthy father-son relationship is at stake.

The Realm Online needs a hero. He'll have to grow up first. Billy's a friendless teen and child of divorce, but when he's playing The Realm Online? He's a legend. Not just a legend, but a god amongst men. Some say he's a no-skill hack, that he's nothing without the mysterious artifact weapon known across the lands as Banhammer. With a unique fighting style perfected over the course of beating the endgame content (twice), Bronan is above needing friends—or a guild, for that matter. Lily of House Hathur is another matter. She isn't merely a conniving you-know-what out to get him killed...IRL she's also his sister. When their parents split, so did she, and now he won't stop trying to ruin her reputation. Can Billy ever forgive his sister for abandoning him—or will his single-minded rage drive her to the brink? Get this book now to find out, and enjoy the opening blow in the eternal struggle between Good and Evil—and brother and sister—in the Banhammer Chronicles. WARNING: This book contains depictions of bullying and the shadowy underbelly of teenage sibling relationships. It's also at times humorous—and sweet. The main character is what we'd consider to be an anti-hero and may not be everyone's cup of tea. Will he earn redemption? That's precisely the story we'll explore in the subsequent BANHAMMER CHRONICLES, starting with REBUILD.

When Halt and Crowley discover that the ambitious Morgarath has been infiltrating the Rangers in order to corrupt the corps and, ultimately, steal the throne, they seek a royal warrant to stop him before it is too late. Yet when Halt and Crowley arrive in Gorlan, they discover just how close Morgarath's scheme is to taking root. Prince Duncan has already been taken prisoner and an imposter installed in his place. All the while, Morgarath has been earning trust and admiration from the Council of Barons while he secretly assembles a powerful force of his own. If the young Rangers are to prevent the coup from succeeding, they will need to prove their mettle in battles the like of which neither has ever faced . . . This origin story brings readers to a time before Will was a Ranger's apprentice, and lays the groundwork for the epic battles that have already captivated fans of the Ranger's Apprentice series around the world. Perfect for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, T.H. White’s The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series and Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series.

SINISTER SERAPHIM OF MINE Daelissa's army is on the move and gathering force. With Synod forces, vampires, the Exorcists, mercenary battle mages, the Blue Cloak army of the Arcanes, and the insidious Nazdal at her back, Team Evil looks unstoppable. Their new head strategist, Luna, seems to out-think Justin's forces at every move. To make matters worse, the insane Seraphim has even come up with a way to revive husked Seraphim with arctech developed from one of her former minions, Maulin Kassus. Seeing no other way out, Justin enlists the help of Jeremiah Conroy and frees Kassus from prison. But Kassus is difficult to control, and Jeremiah is so obsessed with vengeance, the duo may do more to cripple Team Good than help it.

Elyssa is hanging onto life with the help of a preservation spell and Daelissa has new elite troops ready to conquer Eden.

His back to the wall on two fronts, Justin decides to take the gloves off and kick some ass.

Almost two hundred years have elapsed since the Crusader armies took Jerusalem. Now it is the turn of the Saracen to seek revenge and send an overwhelming force against the last Christian enclave in the Holy Land. In Acre, the defenders await their fate. Knight and bishop, mercenary and merchant, all will be tested and all may perish. For this is the endgame. No quarter will be given and no mercy shown. William of Beaujeu, Grand Master of the Templars, will stop at little to secure the city and preserve his legendary military order. He knows that final judgement is approaching and that time is running out. But among the garrison are allies - the adventurer de Flor, Theobald, the young Hospitaller, the court dwarf Amethyst, the camel master Selim and the orphan boy and spy Benedict - who must stay alive in the chaos to be unleashed. In their midst prowl the feared Assassins and sinister enemies from among a rabble army of Italians. Deserted by the pope and the princes of Europe, it seems as if Acre faces annihilation - but perhaps something can still be salvaged from perdition . . .

Solo mode is no longer an option. Billy doesn’t need friends, especially when playing The Realm Online. So long as he wields the legendary artifact weapon Banhammer, he has little need of parties. After his character is deleted for terms of service violations, he’s determined to rebuild his character in all its glory. Without help, of course…because parties are lame AF. But when an angry god nerfs his new character with a curse, he’ll have little choice but to accept help from a druid misfit and a Fool’s priest. When the mayor of a newbie town is murdered, Billy will be forced to choose: party up with the others on a unique, high stakes adventure, or risk sucking forever.
