About the Books

Series Title: The Agartes Epilogues

Author: K.S. Villoso

Genre: Epic Fantasy

Jaeth’s Eye

It has been years since his brother’s accident. Kefier was only just beginning to live a normal life–at least, as normal as it could get for a mercenary from a run-down town. And then an errand goes wrong and he finds himself holding his friend’s bloody corpse. Already once branded a murderer, he is pursued by men he once considered friends and stumbles into the midst of a war between two mages. One bears a name long forgotten in legend; the other is young, arrogant Ylir, who takes special interest in making sure Kefier is not killed by his associates. The apex of their rivalry: a terrible creature with one eye, cast from the womb of a witch, with powers so immense whoever possesses it holds the power to bring the continent to its knees.

Now begins a tale with roots reaching beyond the end of another. Here, a father swears vengeance for his slain children; there, a peasant girl struggles to feed her family. A wayward prince finds his way home and a continent is about to be torn asunder. And Kefier is only beginning to understand how it all began the moment he stood on that cliff and watched his brother fall…

Aina’s Breath

Enosh, apprentice to one of the richest merchants in the Kag, is secretly heir to a broken line of mages. Because of The Empire of Dageis’ quest for sources of the agan–the life-source that mages use for power–his people have been reduced to scavengers, his culture diminished to a speck in the wind. For more than ten years, he has helped raise a conjured beast to use as a weapon against the Dageians. But Enosh’s plans are falling apart. A powerful enemy has escaped and Enosh needs to capture him before he reaches Dageis. His quest is further complicated after he finds himself used as a pawn by Gasparian nobles.

On the other end of the continent, Sume, daughter to a Jin-Sayeng hero, must return to her roots to save her country and bring honour to her father’s name. To do this, she must befriend a prince and understand the terrible, corrupting nature of power and the reason her father was driven to walk away from it all those years ago…

Meanwhile, Kefier, Enosh’s agan-blind brother, is forced back into a life of violence. As he struggles with the notion that hands, once bloodied, never stay clean for long, he finds himself occupied with an unexpected burden: his own brother’s daughter.

Sapphire’s Flight

The battle at Shi-uin has left scars. The rise of Gorrhen yn Garr to power seems unstoppable. As nations fall, the lines between love and duty become blurred and Kefier, Sume, and Enosh must learn to live with the choices they have made.

Author Bio

K.S. Villoso was born in a dank hospital on an afternoon in Albay, Philippines, and things have generally been okay since then. After spending most of her childhood in a slum area in Taguig (where she dodged death-defying traffic, ate questionable food, and fell into open-pit sewers more often than one ought to), she and her family immigrated to Vancouver, Canada, where they spent the better part of two decades trying to chase the North American Dream. She is now living amidst the forest and mountains with her family, children, and dogs in Anmore, BC.

About the Book

place-to-belong-largeTitle: Place to Belong

Author: Claire Boston

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Sean Flanagan has spent a lifetime alone and rejected, constantly hiding who he really is.

With a father who deserted him and a mother who despised him, Sean didn’t think things could get much worse … until he was kicked out of home for being gay. Now he’s discovered he has three half-sisters on the other side of the world. This might be his last chance to find people who will love and accept him. But he’s terrified that if they find out who he really is then they’ll reject him like the rest of his family.

Sean arrives in Houston and is stunned by the warm welcome he receives from his sisters. He begins to hope that maybe this time things will be different. That’s when he meets Hayden Johnson. To follow his heart means risking everything with his newfound family.

Hayden is tired of endless dating. He’s looking for a man to love, someone to spend the rest of his life with. His boss’s new brother ticks all the boxes on the attraction scale, but there’s just one problem – he’s not gay.

Will Sean let his fears rule him, or will he let in the chance of love and find a place where he belongs?

Author: Mya Kay

Genre: Christian Romance / YA

Kaiya Sora Samson’s last year of high school is here. Finally. Her and her friends have been waiting for this day since the summer. For Kaiya, things changed over the years with the arrest of her brother, the secret that she revealed two days before her brother was sentenced and the divorce of her parents. She has to do everything this year using her faith in God, something she never had to rely on before. This year, she’s determined to break free from the prison in her mind by living. She tries to move forward in her relationship with her best friend Jarrell, but she still struggles with trust. But she can’t fight her feelings for him and finds herself unable to deny the chemistry when they share their first kiss. Her other best friend Candice gets kidnapped and the end result destroys not only her family, but her relationship with Kaiya as well. Right before Spring Break, Kaiya finds out that Jarrell and Candice slept together, and even though she wasn’t with him, she feels betrayed beyond words. As hard as it was for Jarrell to tell her, he hopes that Kaiya can forgive him. But when her father calls a week later looking for Kaiya, he knows that the battle has just begun. Kaiya runs away to New York just three months before graduation. She wants to learn to trust those around her, but realizes that they are just as bad as the brother who she no longer trusts. Now, with a new best friend in New York, and a pocketful of money she’s been saving for two years, she’s off trying to figure out her path in life and see if what she’s learned about God protecting her is really true. With an overprotective father, a naïve and defenseless mother, and a best friend who is madly in love with her, Kaiya has to figure out whether or not she will let the demons of her past haunt her into an early grave, or learn the power of her name’s true meaning and overcome her childhood misery with love and forgiveness.
