Hunted – Meagan Spooner

YEVA WATCHED THE SKY over the far-off forest, listening to the baronessa with one ear. The air was heavy and unfamiliar. A storm? she wondered, inhaling the strangeness. In the distance the treetops swayed as if in a gust of wind, but the rest of the forest was still. She leaned forward, abandoning the sewing […]

Hiddensee – Gregory Maguire

Once there was a boy who lived in a cabin in the deep woods with no one for company but an old woman and an old man. In the goat shed one day, the old woman said, “Watch and you’ll see where life comes from.” The boy looked where she was pointing. With an expression […]

Her Majesty’s Necromancer – C.J. Archer

“Put your arm around me,” I told Lincoln Fitzroy. He did, and as with every other time he touched me, my blood responded with a throb and my skin tightened. Imagine how I would react if he touched me with desire and not violence. I hooked my fingers onto his forearm, dropped so that he […]

Heart of the Fae – Emma Hamm

Blood covered her hands. The metallic smell burned her nostrils and overwhelmed her senses. Although she’d finished the surgery an hour ago, she still saw the gaping wound, the splayed open flesh, and the iridescent shimmer of the blood beetle feasting upon sinuous muscle. Sorcha sat on the back stoop with her hands dangling off […]

Haunting the Deep – Adriana Mather

I sip my hot cocoa, not the powdered kind that comes out of a packet, but the shaved-chocolate kind made from scratch. Mrs. Meriwether places a plate of steaming croissants in the middle of my dining room table. They smell like warm butter. Jaxon grins, poised to take a bite of French toast. “You’ve got […]

Halls of Power – Benjamin Medrano

In the midst of a quiet war between the two elven kingdoms of Sifaren and Yisara and the slaver kingdom of Kelvanis, a dungeon was discovered. The heart and mind of the dungeon was Sistina, a tree with a dryad-like body. She rescued crown princess Phynis Constella of Sifaren from magically enforced slavery as well […]

Grave Witch – Kalayna Price

The first time I encountered Death, I hurled my mother’s medical chart at him.As far as impressions went, I blew it, but I was five at the time, so he eventually forgave me. Some days I wished he hadn’t —particularly when we crossed paths on the job. “Ms. Craft, this is beyond unacceptable.” Henry Bak […]

Going Down in Flames – Chris Cannon

Bryn yanked down the school bus window. Not that it helped much. The bus still smelled like sweat and nacho cheese. The sweat could be explained by the freshman boys who had gym last hour and considered showering optional. The nacho cheese was a mystery. When the bus came to her stop, Bryn stood, cringing […]

Godsgrave – Jay Kristoff

Nothing stinks quite like a corpse. It takes a while for them to really start reeking. O, chances are good if you don’t soil your britches before you die, you’ll soil them soon afterward—your human bodies simply work that way, I’m afraid. But I don’t mean the pedestrian stink of shit, gentlefriends. I speak of […]

Gods and Ends – Devon Monk

There was a vampire in my kitchen unpacking a box that had once contained Big-n-Tasty Bananas if the advertisement on the side was to be believed. It was an unexpected sight–the box, not the vampire. The vampire, I’d known all my life. Old Rossi was the leader, the prime of all the vampires who lived […]

Goddess – Ednah Walters

S CHA PTE R 1. A R E YOU DYING ? tanding before the girls’ bathroom mirror, I ignored my audience and stared at my reflection as medium runes coiled and spread up my arms and neck. I tried not to cringe. They crept up my cheeks and head, my scalp tingling. If circus freaks […]

Glimmerglass – Jenna Black

The absolute last straw was when my mom showed up at my recital drunk. I don’t mean tipsy—I mean staggering, slurring, everyone-knows drunk. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, she was late, too, so that when she pushed through the doors and practically fell into a metal folding chair at the back, everyone turned […]

Gilded Cage – Vic James

She heard the motorbike first, then the galloping horse – two distant points of noise in the darkness, converging on her as she ran. Apart from her boots striking the ground, Leah wasn’t making a sound, and neither was the baby she held close. But their pursuers didn’t need to hear them to find them. […]

Ghostly Echoes – William Ritter

Mr. Jackaby’s cluttered office spun around me. Leaning heavily on the desk, I caught my breath in shuddering gulps. My head was throbbing, as though a shard of ice had pierced through one temple and out the other, but the sensation was gradually subsiding. I opened my eyes. The stack of case files I had […]

Genuine Fraud – E. Lockhart

It was a bloody great hotel. The minibar in Jule’s room stocked potato chips and four different chocolate bars. The bathtub had bubble jets. There was an endless supply of fat towels and liquid gardenia soap. In the lobby, an elderly gentleman played Gershwin on a grand piano at four each afternoon. You could get […]

Gaslight Hades – Grace Draven

For the last time, Lenore gazed at her father’s coffin, draped in black velvet and topped with a spray of everlasting flowers. Her mother’s doing of course. Arthur Kenward would have hated the frippery, but Jane Kenward was adamant that no expense be spared, and the bouquet had been ordered and delivered for the funeral. […]

Furies of Calderon – Jim Butcher

Amara rode atop the swaying back of the towering old gargant bull, going over the plan in her head. The morning sun shone down on her, taking the chill out of the misty air and warming the dark wool of her skirts. Behind her, the axles of the cart squeaked and groaned beneath their loads. […]

Frostfire – Amanda Hocking

As dawn began to approach, the celebration finally wound to a close. Even though I had been working for over twelve hours, I felt wide awake and even a little buzzed, like I’d gotten a contact high from the energy around me, not to mention the thrill of completing my first real assignment as a […]

Frostblood – Elly Blake

I OFFERED MY HAND TO THE FIRE. Sparks leaped from the hearth and settled onto my fingers, heat drawn to heat, and glittered like molten gems against my skin. With my free hand, I pulled a bucket of melting snow closer and edged forward on my knees, ready to douse myself if the sparks flared […]
