Bloodforged: A Bloodbound Novel (Bloodbound #2)

by Erin Lindsey

War offers little respite for the bold, and as King Erik’s bodyguard, Captain Alix Black is no exception. Though recently married to Prince Liam White and finally reunited with her brother, Commander General Riggard Black, Alix’s duty to Erik has never been so important… or so difficult.The Oridian Warlord amasses his forces for invasion. Without aid, the Kingdom of Alden will surely fall, but gaining new allies will mean risking the few Erik already has. Riggard and his men must hold the line at the border, while Liam is sent to Onnan City to secure their fleet of ships, leaving Alix and Erik to the most dangerous task of all: crossing the Broken Mountains to seek an alliance with the Kingdom of Harram, an aloof nation led by a famously prickly king.The mountain pass cuts through enemy territory, is notoriously tough to navigate, and is plagued with warring tribes. But securing Harram’s army would turn the tide of the war, so Alix will do whatever it takes to protect Erik and his diplomatic mission. But even she may be no match for the insidious assault Erik’s enemies are preparing to deploy…Praise for the Bloodbound series“Lindsey’s mostly balanced mix of romance and heroic fantasy will [capture] readers’ hearts.” —Publishers Weekly“Contains all the best of romance, warfare, magic and political scheming; all glued together by a cast of warm and wonderful characters.” —Tor.com“Lindsey’s fabulous, descriptive storytelling, coupled with high-stakes conflict and distinctive characters, is guaranteed to draw readers in from the first page. … A stellar fantasy!” —RT Book Reviews“Strong romantic elements and a dash of humor enliven Erin Lindsey’s fantasy debut set in a kingdom besieged by dark forces and torn apart by betrayal.” —Jacqueline Carey, New York Times bestselling author“Puts the hero back into heroic fantasy.” —Tanya Huff, bestselling author

Bloodbound: A Bloodbound Novel (Bloodbound #1)

by Erin Lindsey

The Kingdom of Alden is under attack from neighboring Oridia and every citizen must rise to defend it, including Lady Alix Black. Although Alix’s family is known for being bold, the noblewoman-turned-scout surprises everyone when she saves King Erik’s life during a brutal battle. But as Erik fights to protect Alden, his brother plots to steal it, with the help of Alden’s greatest enemy, the Priest.An Oridian lord and powerful witch, the Priest keeps Oridia’s soldiers equipped with bloodforged weapons, and is rumoured to command darker magicks besides. It is said the Oridian army never loses a battle when the Priest rides with them, and now he’s been spied on the battlefield itself, just as Alix is thrust to the front lines.Newly promoted to Captain and personal bodyguard to the king, Alix finds herself dangerously unprepared for the task at hand. To make matters worse, she’s been separated from her comrades, including Liam, her most trusted confidant – and maybe something more. Torn between her duty and her heart, Alix must rely on her instincts as she grapples with political intrigue, fierce battles, and unspeakable evil in order to protect her king and save her country.Praise for the Bloodbound series“Lindsey’s mostly balanced mix of romance and heroic fantasy will [capture] readers’ hearts.” —Publishers Weekly“Contains all the best of romance, warfare, magic and political scheming; all glued together by a cast of warm and wonderful characters.” —Tor.com“Lindsey’s fabulous, descriptive storytelling, coupled with high-stakes conflict and distinctive characters, is guaranteed to draw readers in from the first page. … A stellar fantasy!” —RT Book Reviews“Strong romantic elements and a dash of humor enliven Erin Lindsey’s fantasy debut set in a kingdom besieged by dark forces and torn apart by betrayal.” —Jacqueline Carey, New York Times bestselling author“Puts the hero back into heroic fantasy.” —Tanya Huff, bestselling author

Bloodsworn: A Bloodbound Novel (Bloodbound #3)

by Erin Lindsey

Alix Black’s legendary boldness has landed her in trouble before, but her recent actions are tantamount to treason. By secretly ordering the assassination of the enemy King, Alix inadvertently strengthened the Warlord, last and most ruthless of Oridia's Trions, giving him free reign to escalate his butchery and prolong the bloody war.Now nothing stands in the Warlord's way, because Alix has just betrayed the one man who could stop him. Unbeknownst to his court, King Erik has been spellbound by the enemy. Locking him away in secret, Alix hopes to protect her king without sacrificing his crown. But she'd better hurry: in a court crawling with spies, it won't be long before her treachery is discovered, and then Alix and everyone sheloves will pay the ultimate price.To save the kingdom, Alix must first save her king. But it will take all her skill and courage to sneak into enemy territory and kill the bloodbinder controlling Erik. The repercussions of Alix’s secret mission have already cost her dearly, and even if she succeeds, she stands to lose her family, her husband, her king…and her soul.Praise for the Bloodbound series“Lindsey’s mostly balanced mix of romance and heroic fantasy will [capture] readers’ hearts.” —Publishers Weekly“Contains all the best of romance, warfare, magic and political scheming; all glued together by a cast of warm and wonderful characters.” —Tor.com“Lindsey’s fabulous, descriptive storytelling, coupled with high-stakes conflict and distinctive characters, is guaranteed to draw readers in from the first page. … A stellar fantasy!” —RT Book Reviews“Strong romantic elements and a dash of humor enliven Erin Lindsey’s fantasy debut set in a kingdom besieged by dark forces and torn apart by betrayal.” —Jacqueline Carey, New York Times bestselling author“Puts the hero back into heroic fantasy.” —Tanya Huff, bestselling author

Darkwalker (Nicolas Lenoir #1)

by E. L. Tettensor

Every detective has his demons. Few are actually hunted by them...It's been a long time since Inspector Nicolas Lenoir loved his work. Once a legend in the Metropolitan Police, Lenoir learned the hard way that justice, like everything else in Kennian, can be bought. These days--much to the frustration of his hard-working partner, Sergeant Bran Kody--Lenoir spends more time drinking than investigating their current assignment: a string of missing corpses.But when his young orphan informant goes missing, Lenoir is forced to dust off his renowned skills - fast. Zach's life is in danger, and his kidnapping may hold the key to unraveling the mystery of the corpse thieves. Lenoir and Kody follow what few leads they have into Kennian's darkest corners, tangling with body snatchers, witchdoctors, and necromancers. But the gruesome case also draws something far more dangerous back into Lenoir's life: the Darkwalker.Ten years ago, Lenoir barely escaped the Darkwalker's clutches, but the immortal champion of the dead never forgets a debt, and Lenoir always knew his would come due one day. His time is up--just when he needs it most. Zach is surely doomed unless Lenoir can unravel the mystery. But with his own life numbered in hours, he will have to work fast, lest the Darkwalker have one more soul to avenge.
