Kingdom in Exile Book Review:

A promise is as deadly as a sword. Once a Shieldmaiden for her beloved kingdom, now Princess Reyna Darragh is nothing more than a captive of the exiled Shadow Court. The shadow fae believe in strange visions that foretell of the upcoming war. If Reyna helps them, they will win. If she refuses, their realm will fall. The High King gives her an ultimatum. She must become his warrior, or he will kill Princess Eislyn. Reyna has no choice but to kneel to the cruel king. She would do anything to save her sister, even fight by the side of her former lover. The one who betrayed her. Meanwhile, the plague-like Ruin continues to spread throughout the lands, destroying everything it touches. Faced with danger on all sides, Reyna fights to protect everything she holds dear: her sister, her kingdom in the north, and her own shattered heart.

Court of Ruins Book Review:

In a warn-torn land, love is always a lie. Reyna Darragh despises the scheming ways of the fae courts--she'd rather be on the battlefield. But as the daughter of a High King, her hand in marriage can end the war faster than her sword. So, with her realm in tatters, she agrees to marry her enemy, Prince Thane. The very same prince who killed hundreds of her kind during the war. Because Reyna has a far greater scheme in mind. To save her kingdom from the vicious prince, she plans to marry him, make him king, and then murder him, so that she can take the throne herself. But as she grows closer to securing the crown, traitorous desire stirs. Beyond the storm of passion, intrigue, and betrayal, a greater evil rises in a forgotten realm. In the end, Reyna can help stop it, but she must decide where her loyalties lie: with her duty to her kingdom, or with the vengeance in her heart.

Devilish Deal Book Review:

Last month, I was living out of my car. Now, I'm couch-surfing in Brooklyn. It's about as glamorous as it sounds. All I've got are some bad memories, an empty bank account, and a pigeon I named Hendrix. So, when a mysterious, sinfully hot man offers me a deal, I have no choice but to accept. I'll pretend to be his live-in girlfriend for a month. In exchange, he'll give me a job at his exclusive club in Hell's Kitchen. Only problem is, there's way more to Asmodeus than meets the eye. He's a literal demon. Like, from the underworld. He's rude, dangerous, and probably a killer. But if I break my deal with him, I'll lose my soul. Fortunately, it's just a month. A month of heated stares and fake kisses that feel all too real. My soul-and my body-can totally survive this...right?

City of Storms Book Review:

**Winner of the 2002 Readers' Favorite Gold Medal for Magic & Wizardry!** A city simmering with repressed urges… A fallen angel bent on chaos… And a conspiracy that could destroy them all. Can one woman harness her own psychic power to stop it? In a world with three layers of ever darker magic, few dare to wield the most dangerous. And those who try can fall prey to violent madness. The Church keeps a tight leash on its citizens. It tests every child for psychological deviancy. If you pass, you're given a Mark. A tattoo that lets you use the ley power—and shields you from your most primal desires. For the lucky ones, the world is at their feet. The rest suffer a life of menial jobs and hopelessness. When tarot reader Kasia crosses paths with a young priest who hunts deviants, her own ugly secret is dragged into the light. Will they learn to trust each other in time to stop a greater evil from corrupting their world? You’ll love the first book in this epic fantasy series because the lush weaving of intrigue, action and slow-burn romance will keep you on the edge of your seat. Get it now. Praise for City of Storms “Richly textured and fabulously conceived. Ross drapes a tense political thriller in a trench coat of dark fantasy. Readers should expect the unexpected.” –Kirkus Reviews "I’m not prone to bouts of effusiveness but I couldn’t gush enough about Kat Ross’s books, I enjoy them so much. This one has a Slavic feel, which was really interesting to me, and I loved the rainy city of Novostopol (also the map illustration is gorgeous). Added to the unique setting and fantasy elements are Ross’s usual mix of great characters, a twisty-turny plot, romance and a touch of humour. I already can’t wait for Book 2!” –Evelyn, Goodreads "I loved the setting, which is technologically advanced yet progress is suppressed - it gave it a 1930's noir feel. I'd compare it favourably to the 'tsarpunk' of the Grishaverse. Relatable characters and fast-paced and well-thought-out action drive this story along and have me eagerly awaiting the sequel." –A. Adler, Goodreads “A masterpiece of magical fantasy which mixes its unique concepts into the darkest psychology of the human mind and its most base physical desires and emotions. Action, excitement, and darkness in all the right places. An unmissable and original read.” –K.C. Finn for Readers Favorite, 5 Stars “A rousing adventure [and] skillful fusion of history, fantasy, and religion. It contains word paintings with arresting beauty and a three-dimensional character that is torn between duty and loyalty. I definitely recommend City of Storms for its unique twists, turns, and brilliant storyline.” –Vincent Dublado for Readers Favorite, 5 Stars

Imagine a city divided…a city readying itself for a war. The vampire Blood and the shape-shifting Beast Kind seek to seize control now that the treaty is broken. Only the humans stand in their way…but they stand without their Fae allies…and they desperately need help.... I chose to stay with the humans when the Fae withdrew from the City. I am a healer, and they need me. I know the odds are against them. I know they need reinforcements. But I never expected them to turn and seek aid from the depths of my past. Asharic is a powerful Fae, exiled by the Veiled Queen thirty years ago. Leaving me behind. But now the queen is dead and the throne is vacant, and Ash is returning to the City—my City—with his mercenary army. It would be false to deny that there is still a spark between us, but I will not be taken in again. And I’m not the only one disturbed by his return. A Blood lord is poised to conquer the Half-Light City, and other enemies new and old are gathering to eliminate the threat Ash poses. To save the City, we will have to join forces.

Between Two Thorns Book Review:

“JK Rowling meets Georgette Heyer” in this series debut, a scintillating fusion of urban fantasy and court intrigue from the Hugo Award-winning author (The Guardian). Between Mundanus, the world of humans, and Exilium, the world of the Fae, lies the Nether, a mirror-world where the social structure of 19th-century England is preserved by Fae-touched families who remain loyal to their ageless masters. Born into this world is Catherine Rhoeas-Papaver, who escapes it all to live a normal life in Mundanus, free from her parents and the strictures of Fae-touched society. But now she’s being dragged back to face an arranged marriage, along with all the high society trappings it entails. Crossing paths with Cathy is Max, an Arbiter of the Split Worlds treaty with a dislocated soul who polices the boundaries between the worlds, keeping innocents safe from the Fae. After a spree of kidnappings and the murder of his fellow Arbiters, Max is forced to enlist Cathy’s help in unravelling a high-profile disappearance within the Nether. Getting involved in the machinations of the Fae, however, may prove fatal to all involved. “Between Two Thorns shows the darkness beneath the glamour of the social Season. Learning to be a young lady has never seemed so dangerous.”—Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of the Lady Astronaut series “Emma Newman has built a modern fantasy world with such élan and authority her ideas of why and how the seemingly irrational world of Fairy works should be stolen by every other writer in the field . . . This book of wonders is first rate.”—Bill Willingham, Eisner Award-winning author of Fables
