About Emma L. Adams
Emma spent her childhood creating imaginary worlds to compensate for a disappointingly average reality, so it was probably inevitable that she ended up writing fantasy novels. When she's not immersed in her own fictional universes, Emma can be found with her head in a book or wandering around the world in search of adventure.

And now she's being accused of murdering one of their own.
To clear her name, she must work hand in hand with the demons she used to hunt, including the sexy warlock Nikolas Castor. Not only is his magic entirely too close to the killer she's pursuing, but he seems to think Devi is marked by a demon, too.
Before long, Devi is neck-deep in trouble. Distrusted by her former allies and in serious danger of the real reason she left the guild making it into the light, Devi must catch the killer before he unleashes literal hell on Earth.
Unfortunately for her, the Unseelie Queen refuses to help without a steep cost, and even the magic Holly borrowed from the Morrigan isn't enough to guarantee her victory.
Without the aid of the Sidhe, the odds of thwarting the god seem insurmountable, but there are some secrets hidden even from the Courts. The gods are inexorably tied up with the lies that bound the former Gatekeepers, and their only hope of success lies in secrets that Holly thought was buried along with their ancestor, Thomas Lynn.
Holly and her cousins race against the clock to untangle the web of their family history in the hopes of bringing down their deadly foe. As a war with the gods brews among faeries and humans alike, Holly finds herself pushed to make an impossible choice. One way or another, someone is getting screwed over.
After all, with the Sidhe and their gods alike, all debts must be repaid sooner or later, and Holly may be the one to pay the price…
To top it off, the necromancer guild is dealing with an influx of ghosts refusing to leave the mortal realm. Holly is certain her own bargain with the Morrigan is partly responsible, but if the Unseelie Queen learns of her involvement, she'll wish the Wild Hunt had finished her off. This also proves inconvenient to her tentative alliance with Puck the trickster fae, who threatens to knock down the well-tended barriers around the unpleasant parts of her history.
Being the Winter Gatekeeper wasn't easy, but it'll take everything Holly has learned to solve the deadly dilemma before the wrath of the Unseelie falls upon her… and the rest of the mortal realm.
Being the villain is easy. Being heroic is a thousand times harder.
Once, Holly Lynn was the Winter Gatekeeper, wielder of the powerful magic of the Unseelie Court. Now, she's shunned by humans and faeries alike, reduced to hunting troublemaking fae beasts to pay the bills and trying to convince her landlord not to kick out the traumatised teenage death faerie who's moved into her room.
When a serial killer starts picking off the local faeries, Holly's hopes of lying low are shattered. A local half-fae detective takes an interest in the case, and he seems to think Holly can help him solve it. The slight problem? Puck is a descendent of the notorious Robin Goodfellow, the master prankster from the Summer Court and sworn enemy of the Unseelie. If he finds out Holly's past, she can say goodbye to keeping her former vow to the Winter Court a secret.
With the clues to the killer's identity pointing directly to Faerie itself, though, Holly finds herself in a dilemma. She knows better than to make bargains with the fae, but to solve the murders and stop the killer's rampage, she might have no choice in the matter…
At least until a mysterious spell book falls into her possession, granting Ilsa with a sudden and inconvenient affinity with the dead, and dangerous magic that paints a neon target on her head. With her family's questionable past quite literally refusing to stay buried, the last thing Ilsa needs is an untrustworthy self-proclaimed faerie bodyguard, even if he does come with a deadly skillset of his own.
Dealing with zombies and fae assassins would be difficult enough on its own, but now someone's out to frame her for murder, too. While dodging enemies at every corner, Ilsa must get a handle on her new powers before the armies of Faerie invade Earth. She might just be in over her head…
This bundle contains the complete Gatekeeper's Curse trilogy: Hereditary Magic, Hereditary Curse, and Hereditary Power.
Her plans go sideways when she's called to take on the deadly Gatekeeper's Trials and assigned a stuck-up half-fae mentor who hates humans like her. He might be pretty to look at, but he has no intention of giving her an easy time of it. But things go from bad to dire when the King of the Summer Court is assassinated. Worse, all the signs point to a human being responsible. Since Hazel and her family are the only humans permitted to enter the King's domain, the blame lands squarely on them.
Before long, Hazel's aggravating new mentor is the only person in Faerie she can trust not to sentence her to death on the spot… assuming he isn't the murderer himself. With her loved ones' fates resting in her hands, it's up to Hazel to catch the killer before the vengeful Sidhe take out their wrath on the rest of humanity.
This boxed set contains the complete Gatekeeper's Trials trilogy: Hidden Crown, Hidden Court, and Hidden Power.
Twenty years after the faeries came and destroyed the world as we knew it, I use my specialist skills to keep rogue faeries in line and ensure humans and their magically gifted neighbours can coexist (relatively) peacefully.
Nobody knows those skills came from the darkest corner of Faerie itself.
When a human child disappears, replaced with a faerie changeling, I have to choose between taking the safe road or exposing my own history with the faeries to the seductively dangerous head of the Mage Lords. He’s the exact kind of distraction I don’t need, but it’s work with him or lose my chance to save the victims. It’ll take all my skills to catch the kidnappers and stop Faerie’s dark denizens overrunning the city — but if the faerie lords find out about the magic I stole last time I went into their realm, running won’t save me this time…
This boxed set contains the first three books in the Changeling Chronicles series: Faerie Blood, Faerie Magic and Faerie Realm.
The Family who raised me are plotting world domination, a band of rogue spirit mages are on their way to seizing power, and the Houses of the Elements refuse to accept my offer of an alliance to fight off the oncoming threats.
To complicate matters, the Death King has tasked me with finding the elves, who vanished a long time ago. An impossible mission, or so I think. But the elves might be our last hope for vanquishing the Family before they bring the world -- and the Parallel -- to its knees.
Here's hoping I can pull off one last miracle…
Settling into her new role as the first celestial with demon magic, Devi faces an unwelcome surprise when the shadow arch-demon abruptly returns to the nether realms. The forces of hell are moving, and they don't want a human running around with their power.
The problem is, it's getting a bit much for Devi, too. When dead warlocks start showing up with the celestials' mark on their bodies, tensions between the celestials and demons reach a tipping point. Devi's relationship with the arch-demon's son, Nikolas, is just fuel on the fire.
The arch-demons are gearing up for an epic showdown. And this time, humanity might not survive it...
Ever since a devastating magical war tore apart Ada Fletcher's homeworld, she and her family have lived undercover on the low-magic Earth. Stuck in a dead-end job in London, Ada has spent her life hiding both her true identity and her forbidden magic. At least until she's captured by the Inter-World Alliance and framed for a deadly magical murder she had nothing to do with.
Kay Walker, grandson of the Inter-World Alliance's late founder, expects to spend his first week as an Alliance employee hunting rogue monsters, not solving his supervisor's murder or questioning a strange, fierce young woman with dangerous magic. Killer or not, her abilities raise questions about the Alliance's history, and the closer he gets to the truth, the higher the body count rises.
The last thing Ada wants to do is help the infuriating Alliance guard who arrested her, but it soon becomes clear that the Alliance knows too much about Ada's homeworld -- and her magic. More, in fact, than she knows herself. One thing's certain: she's not the only one keeping secrets, and trusting the wrong person might cost more than her life.
Through a twist of fate, I survived. Since then, I've been helping my sister run a shelter for supernaturals fleeing London's magical underworld. To fund it, I steal back dangerous magical objects that have fallen into the wrong hands. Not a simple task when I'm the only dragon shifter in London who can't turn into a dragon, but it pays the bills.
When an egg belonging to an unknown dragon species is delivered to me and then promptly stolen, however, my life is overturned. To retrieve the egg, I have to risk my neck in an underworld arena where shifters fight to survive. It doesn’t hurt that a smoking hot rogue dragon shifter has my back, but even he might turn on me when he finds out about the weird new powers I've been developing since I came back from the dead.
Five years ago, I died to save my family. This time it might be permanent…
Evelyn Hemlock is gone, but her actions have cast ripples through the supernatural world. Now the gods that once threatened our survival are on the brink of returning, and Evelyn is prepared to do anything to meet their challenge.
Starting with kidnapping my friends.
To save the people I love, it's up to me to dig up my coven's dark secrets in order to bring Evelyn down. Defeating her might mean dooming myself to suffer the Hemlocks' curse in her place, but if I let her live, then the Ancients will devour the world.
One way or another, this is the end of the Hemlock Coven.
Witch's Sacrifice is the final book in the Hemlock Chronicles series.
