BOOK: Jennara in Flux (Beneath the Willow Book II) by A. J. Culey

BOOKS


JENNARA IN FLUX (Beneath the Willow Book II)

They released the ancestral magicks of Lutia upon an unsuspecting world.
Now they must find the courage to spin that wild power.


After one hundred and thirty years, the magicks have finally been released. With them, though, come unexpected dangers and blessings. Wild and unclaimed, the magicks are transforming the world faster than its people can comprehend, infusing the lands with new life while bringing its people to the brink of war.

The Royals have decreed that none may spin the magicks, upon penalty of death, sparking whispers of rebellion everywhere. Sehmah and Takeem, considered traitors to the throne for releasing the magicks, have been forced to retreat into the mountains of Lixor to escape execution. Separated from them and taken against her will into spinner territory, Jennifer struggles to adjust to the magicks she’s unexpectedly absorbed and the pivotal role she now plays in a war she never wanted to be part of, in a world she never believed could be real.



A.J. Culey is a teacher, world traveler and writer whose imagination is often out of control. When driving around town, standing in lines at the grocery store or doing chores around the house, her brain is frequently filled with images of cats in flight, antlers on a rampage and rabbits wrestling with tigers. She regularly gets caught giggling at nothing and when asked for an explanation simply says, “I crack myself up.”

An avid animal lover, A.J. volunteers for local rescue organizations and participates in Trap-Neuter-Release programs for feral cats. If wrangling cats and bunnies were a sporting event, she’d be an Olympic gold medalist. 

A.J. recently completed her MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. Her thesis project was the YA fantasy, SEHMAH’S TRUTH, and perhaps the only thing she’s ever written that was completely serious in nature.

BOOK: The Pain Season by Libby Doyle

BOOKS

THE PAIN SEASON

ON THE AUTUMNAL EQUINOX, ZAN O'GARA'S LIFE WILL CHANGE.

Tonight’s the night. Rainer Barakiel is going to tell me all his secrets. I thought I’d be excited, but I feel like someone shoved a knife into my gut.

Heh. Fitting, considering I met Rainer because of his expertise in edged weapons. The daggers used in that ritual sacrifice became our best lead thanks to him. What kind of omen is it, that I met the love of my life because someone found a human spleen in the bushes?

I didn’t expect someone like him. When he opened his door I couldn’t talk, I was so stunned. God, how I flirted with him. Hell of a way for an FBI agent to act. This whole relationship is a hell of a way for an FBI agent to act. I didn’t want to face that he was hiding things from me.

What if he has something to do with this murder?

I’m being paranoid. He’s denied being a criminal and I believe him. I don’t see how my instincts could be so wrong. He can’t be bad. He can’t.

He’s hiding things from me, but he loves me. I feel it. Maybe he didn’t expect to fall in love with me, but he did, and now he wants out. He’s going to confess, leave it all behind. For me.

I wonder, after he tells me all his secrets, will this become a wacky story we love to tell? Or a story I tell only to myself, alone in a stale-smelling apartment, stewing in pain? The story of how my heart got damaged beyond repair.

WARNING: This book contains foul language, violence, and explicit sex. Adults only, please. Although not a cliffhanger, this is not a stand-alone novel. The story began in The Passion Season, and will continue in The Vengeance Season.
