To Catch A Stolen Soul, RL Naquin

rln-1a-to-catch-a-stolen-soulKam is a soul chaser for the Hidden Government, a much harder job now that the Hidden look like everyone else. Broke, out of magic and sick of playing waitress in a pirate-themed dive bar, Kim jumps at a chance to an out-of-town mission.

A reaper– and his loaded soul stone –have gone missing. The stone contains souls that might get permanently stuck if Sam doesn’t find it, like, yesterday. She tracks the reaper down to a food truck outside Kansas City, only to find a dead reaper and no soul stone in sight. Which means that someone who should be dead killed the reaper and is running around with a powerful magic item. Not good.

And apparently the killer is targeting food-truck owners that also happen to be Hidden. So the only thing to do is open her own truck and go undercover– goodbye Kam the Djinn, hello Mobile Food Entrepreneur –and hope that she and her new runaway friend won’t be the next targets…

Fans of the Monster Haven series by RL Naquin will love this beguiling spin-off, featuring a trapped djinn caught in a hot mess of lost souls, fast food and otherworldly murder.

Unleashing Demons, CJ Laurence

udBeing supernatural doesn’t make you invincible and it certainly doesn’t make you immune to emotional baggage.

On their annual three-month vacation from Hell, Commanders of Hell Azazel and Balthazar end up in a quiet village in the English countryside. The bickering siblings put themselves at odds when Balthazar decides he wants to end their demonic curse and become human again by finding his Demi-soul — the one who completes him. With their ancient history coming between them once more, the two brothers cross paths with Kyla Marshall — a woman whose own past is steeped with horror.

Kyla finds something deep inside her resonating with the unstable duo. When her own festering rage and fury creeps to the surface, she finds herself on a one-way street to bloody revenge. Along the way, she discovers she has her own standing in the supernatural world, and such talents only make her thirst for justice greater.

By the time Azazel and Balthazar realize what’s going on, it’s too late and Kyla’s hands are already dirty. However, an unexpected enemy has been watching from the side-lines and is ready to take full advantage of Kyla’s uncontrollable power.

Can Lucifer’s best stop fighting with each other long enough to save the girl?

When Zara and Lessie finally make it back to Elantia, the last thing they expect is to find that nearly all the dragons have gone missing.

Worse, the Zallabarians are cutting a swathe through the country, mowing down the Elantian soldiers as they head straight for the capital. The only chance Zara and Tavarian have at stopping them from destroying Elantia lie in the recovery of the missing dragons.

But finding a horde of dragons that have vanished into thin air is no mean feat, especially when it involves heading straight back into enemy territory.

Ghosts and Grudges, Jasmine Walt

GaG

When an ancient spirit awakens a hidden ability within Aika, grateful is the last word that comes to her mind.

Being able to summon monsters and spirits to do your bidding might sound cool in comic books, but in real life it brings nothing but trouble. And between chasing after a medical degree, caring for her ailing mother, and running the family business, she’s got plenty to deal with.

Unfortunately, Aika doesn’t have the luxury of ignoring her new abilities. An ancient, powerful evil has taken her mother hostage, and with cancer eating away at her life, the clock is ticking until Aika loses her forever.

Luckily, a hunky– if occasionally infuriating –shaman has taken an interest in Aika, and is willing to show her the ropes and fight by her side. But the more time Aika spends with Raiden, the more she realizes that he might not be what he seems.

The truth is just out of reach, and once Aika uncovers it, she’ll either find the key to saving their world… or destroy the best thing she’s ever had.

Hidden by Night, Jada Storm & Emma Stark

My name is Ace Bissett, and after a lifetime of proving magic doesn’t exist, I’m learning how to be a witch.

If you’d told me a few months ago that I’d be burning sage and staking vampires, I would have laughed in your face. And yet here I am, casting spells and brewing potions while I relentlessly search for a way to lift the curse that binds my four lovers to the night.

But just when I think I’m getting a handle on my powers, ghosts from my past surface… literally.

These spirits bring danger to everyone I hold dear while hurting innocent bystanders in the process–which is something I can’t allow, no matter the cost.

My dark protectors will do anything to keep me safe, but as far as this new threat is concerned, I’m on my own. For even the strongest warrior can’t fight an enemy they can’t see, and if I don’t find a way to defeat these spirits, we might end up trapped in the darkness… forever…
