Blurb:

Two babies, born with the blood of witches.

One of darkness.

One of light.

 

The magic of each yet to be awakened.

Separated at birth, neither knew of the other. Seventeen years have passed, with their strength increasing with every moon cycle.

Sacred relics were forged to contain any magic too great to wield.

One a dagger.

One an amulet.

During the time of the First War, these magical artifacts were stolen and hidden from the world.

 It is foretold that if the Cursed One were to wield both relics, it would bring about the end of days.

 

Alliances forged.

Blood spilled.

Lives lost.

Gifted the artifacts, twin witches,  Imogen and Amelia, must harness the power within them to save those they love… and prevent the rise of Aed.

Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb:
Raised in a war-ravaged continent, temptation comes to Calla Caldwell in the form of a charming and mysterious stranger. Giving in to his intimate seduction, her world is forever changed by a single bite.
Calla quickly learns the handsome stranger is vampire prince, Trystan Vladu. His bite was an attempt to claim and save her from a plot of vengeance generations in the making. However, the claws of that ancient vendetta are scraping ever closer.
Thrust into a new nightmare by the Prince of the corrupt kingdom of Morbeth, Calla is captured, tortured, and starved in the dank confines of his dungeon. While in captivity, she takes part in a séance with a witch of light where she contacts a departed relative—a Princess of Incendia—who bequeaths a gift to Calla that will tip the scales of good and evil . . . if she can learn to harness it.
With a dark tapestry of secrets, lies, and murder unraveling around her, Calla must learn to embrace the power roiling through her veins, or be snuffed out by the strangling fist of a malevolent darkness.
Cameo Renae, was born in San Francisco, raised in Maui, Hawaii, and now resides with her husband and children in Las Vegas.
She’s a daydreamer, caffeine and peppermint addict, who loves to laugh, and loves to read to escape reality.
One of her greatest joys is creating fantasy worlds filled with adventure and romance and sharing it with others. It is the love of her family and amazing support of her fans that keeps her going.
One day she hopes to find her own magic wardrobe and ride away on her magical unicorn. Until then…she’ll keep writing!

Afflicted

(Trimarked Series: Book Two)

by CK Sorens

Blurb

Hope was dangerous for the Trimarked girl.

It’s been five weeks since Nicu saved Ember from the barrier, and she doesn’t know how long until he tells the Fae about her growing powers. She soon discovers the small openings she can create in the impenetrable barrier around the city of Trifecta no longer snap shut but now ease closed at her command.

Ember already balances on a fine line between accident and purpose; using her power intentionally will certainly bring the wrath of all three races. Though she doesn’t belong anywhere, she’s not willing to become a prisoner to any of the factions.

When a Witch Queen arrives in Trifecta with the goal to enslave the minds and bodies of magic users, Ember must take a different path: use without control. As the Queen gathers new followers, Ember may not have a choice whether she’ll expose her newfound strength if it means saving the few people she dares to call friends.

Afflicted is book two of six in the Trimarked Series; a YA dark, urban fantasy. Books 3-6 coming soon!

Title: Of Fire and Water
Author: Cameo Renae
Genre: YA Dark Fantasy
Cover Designer: Jay Villalobos – Covers by Juan
Publication Date: November 14th, 2020
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb:
Calla escaped Morbeth only to find herself fighting for her life once more. Incendia seemed the perfect sanctuary of escape. The stories told of the mystical island claim all inhabitants were annihilated. Those tragic tales . . . were lies.
Desperate to keep their truth hidden, the islanders take Calla and her friends prisoner. Despite her dire situation, something about that beautiful—yet deadly—paradise speaks to Calla’s soul, whispering the powerful secrets pulsing through her veins. As Roehl hunts for her, eager to claim his murderous vengeance, Calla searches for answers she believes only Incendia can offer.
Can Calla harness the power surging within her in time to protect herself, and those she loves, from Roehl? Or, no matter where she runs, will the twisted royal continue to chase her to the farthest reaches of any realm?
