Kingdom of Wind and Fire

Blood is magic. Magic is everything.

Brianna grew up hiding her elemental magic, using it only in secret. If discovered, she risked being enslaved by the king’s army. Her twin brother, Brayden, wasn’t lucky enough to avoid that fate. Taken at a young age, his power was controlled by a SpiritSinger.

After fifteen years apart, Brayden escapes and accidentally makes it back to a home he doesn’t remember. No sooner has he reunited with his family when their mother is captured by the same enemy. The twins must make a choice to leave their mother and carry out her wishes or attempt to find and rescue her.

It’s only the beginning.

Torn between choices, they travel to a magical university to learn to control their volatile powers. With the help of a snarky smuggler and his crew, Brayden and Brianna embark on a quest to hone their magical powers and learn who they really are.

Can they stay together long enough to save their mother? Or will an even greater evil tear them apart?

Siren Dreams (Free)

All her life Evangeline dreamed of finding her purpose. Now that she has, she is certain that she doesn’t want to fulfil it. Especially not when it could tip the scales in the war that’s brewing between The Gifted.

Evangeline must travel to the Fae communities to convince them that, although there is darkness within her, she is on the side of light. Tensions rise, trust is betrayed and those closest to her might not have her best interests at heart. The very darkness that she wields, seeps its way into her dreams throughout her travels.

This time, someone new enters them. Someone that seems to be trying to communicate with her. Is it a warning of danger to come, or simply an unending memory of her failure to rid the world of The Veils leader?

So when a dark-haired Adonis appears out of nowhere to save my life, things finally take a turn for the better. Or worse. I’m still not sure which. You see, those two savage killers weren’t human.

Bonus: Bad Book Covers for Public Domain Books

These covers range from “didn't even try” to “what the @#$@# is that?” Many of the covers are pretty funny, or unintentionally amazing, like the Pride and Prejudice cover at right. If you like art that's SOBIG (so bad it's good), this is the article for you. Read it here.
