Dive into a thrilling collection filled with suspense, love, betrayal, and magic.
Eight talented authors bring to life the struggles, the joys, and the thrill of merging the world of deities with the world of men.
Bad dreams always end the same; eventually you wake up. But Nick is trapped in a living nightmare with no end in sight.
After his pack fails to rescue him, Nick and his friends are whisked to a new fighting pit that's bigger and deadlier than the last. Werewolves and vampires aren't his only opponents; magi, werebirds, and werecats are also out for his blood. To make matters worse, he's attracted the hungry gaze of the leader of the pit, a fae named Vesp who thrives on nightmares. His only hope rests in the hands of a vampire he once called a foe and in a desperate allegiance with the parahumans who battle against him in the ring.
Back in Chicago, Tess and Arjun join forces with a sassy Huntress to discover the location of the new pit. But the longer Tess works beside Arjun, the more she's torn between her duty to the Hunters and her pack. Should she rush in to save the people she loves and risk losing them again, or stick to a plan that could just as easily fail?
In Wisconsin, Rozene and her son's pack partner with a local fae and her magus wife, owners of a magical school. They may be the only parahumans at hand capable of taking on Vesp, and with students from their school falling victim to the fae's evil plans, the fight is personal.
It's a race against time for the Purple Door District parahumans to find their friends and family before their lives are sacrificed in this game of fae.
(CW noted in the book)
Tess Montgomery isn’t your typical member of the Chicago wolf pack. In fact, she’s not a wolf at all. She’s an adopted fire magus of the pack and thus doesn’t always “play by the rules.” When her father and her best friend Nick are kidnapped in what the parahumans assume is a Hunter operation, Tess’s pack is thrown into turmoil. With Alpha Paytah unable to step outside the bounds of his new position as Violet Marshall of Chicago’s Purple Door District, Tess takes the reins to plan a rescue attempt.
Meanwhile, Nick and his fellow wolves find themselves in a world of battle and bloodshed. The Hunters have set up an illegal fighting pit where the strongest survive and the weakest are traded or killed. It’s all Nick can do to keep up the spirits of his packmates and help them escape. Or survive long enough until they’re rescued.
Unfortunately, Tess’s rescue mission fails spectacularly, leading to her capture. She finds herself the unwilling guest of a local Hunter named Arjun. Handsome, charming, and deadly, Arjun tries to convince Tess that not all Hunters are the enemy. He even offers to help her find her packmates. But is he true to his word, or does he have his own wicked plans in mind?
