Broken Bonds – Keri Arthur

T CHAPTER ONE he second full moon of the month rode high in the sky, filling the night with her light and her energy. For many, a blue moon was either a symbol of good luck or bad, depending on which part of the globe they came from and what superstitions they believed in. For […]

Unlit – Keri Arthur

I n the still crispness of a dawn not yet risen, evil stirred. It was a whisper, a promise that rode the breeze like an Irkallan ghost, insubstantial and yet threatening. I leaned over the parapet, one gloved hand gripping the glass-smooth edge of the nearest merlon to ensure I didn’t fall. Watchtower eight was […]

Hunter Hunted – Keri Arthur

The woman sitting opposite me was plump, with merry blue eyes and purple-tinted gray hair. She was one of the café’s regular customers, and came in at least three times a week. If Belle—the café’s co-owner and my best friend—wasn’t helping her to communicate with the daughter she’d lost five years ago, I was using […]

Hell’s Bell – Keri Arthur

I woke abruptly, my heart hammering and a scream dying on my lips. For several seconds, I did nothing more than stare into the darkness of my bedroom, trying to find a reason for the fear that pounded through my veins. Though I’d rather weirdly become prone to prophetic dreams of late, it wasn’t a […]

Blackbird Crowned – Keri Arthur

A CHAPTER ONE soft but insistent beeping dragged me from the depths of sleep. I rolled onto my side and hugged my pillow over my ears, doing my best to ignore the noise. It took several minutes and half a dozen more beeps for the realization to hit: it was my phone. I swore and […]

Demon’s Dance – Keri Arthur

The phone rang sharply, a shrill sound that made me jump and drew an obscenity from my lips. I opened one eye and studied the old-fashioned clock on the bedside table. The numbers did a somewhat blurry dance before revealing it was three in the morning. I’d been asleep for a whole two hours. The […]

Cursed – Keri Arthur

Iraised my face to the storm-clad sky and let the rain wash the sweat and blood from my skin. Some of that blood was mine. Most of it was not. I drew in a deep breath and savored the scent of pain, anger, and confusion that rode the air. This day—this moment—had been a long […]

Burn – Keri Arthur

I  woke to the cold restraint of metal cuffs, the gentle chink of chains, and the sway of a slow-moving vehicle. The scents that rode the air were thick and sharp and spoke of blood, unwashed bodies, fear, and anger. Underneath all that ran the heavy musk of at least two dozen men, but there […]

Blood Kissed – Keri Arthur

In a world where magic and science sit side by side, and powerful witches are considered necessary aides for all governments, Lizzie Grace is something of an outlier. Though born into one the most powerful blue blood witch families, she wants nothing to do with either her past or her magic. But when she and […]

Blackbird Rising – Keri Arthur

The old suspension bridge creaked under my weight. The sound echoed across the stillness, as sharp as a demon’s cackle. A thick fog hid the world from sight—not even the navigation lights were visible at the far end of King’s Island, and that was bad news for any ships or yachts navigating toward the main […]

Winter Halo – Keri Arthur

There were ghosts in this place. Most kept their distance, simply watching as I made my way through the broken remnants of their tombstones. One or two of the braver ones brushed my arms with ethereal fingers—a caress that reached past the layers of jacket and shirt to chill my skin. But these ghosts meant […]

Wicked Embers – Keri Arthur

In the still darkness of this dream, Death was hunting. Her scent filled the air, as heavy as the fog was thick. I had no sense of where I was. There were no identifiable buildings here, no street signs, nothing that could provide a clue. Not even people. Just me, the foggy darkness, and the […]

Flameout – Keri Arthur

The throaty roar of machinery shattered the peace of the cemetery. Deep in the old trees and on the other side of the road that channeled drivers up to the mausolea, light shone. It was fierce and bright against the thick cover of night, but it oddly cast the man who stood at the very […]

Fireborn – Keri Arthur

All of us dream. Some of us even have pleasant dreams. My dreams might have been few and far between, but they were never, ever pleasant. But worse than that, they always came true. Over the course of my many lifetimes, I’d tried to interfere, to alter fate’s path and prevent the death I’d seen, […]

Ashes Reborn – Keri Arthur

I raised my face to the sky and drew in the heat of the day. It ran through me like a river, a caress filled with warmth and sympathy, as if the sun were aware of my reason for being in this clearing out in the middle of nowhere. And maybe it was. It had […]

Wicked Wings – Keri Arthur

You’re the scrawniest, most ungrateful pig of a cat I’ve ever had the goddamn misfortune to come across, you know that?” The cat in question stared at me with a look that could only be described as utter satisfaction. He was an orange tabby with a pale, fluffy mane that made him look like a […]

The Darkest Kiss – Keri Arthur

Being thrown out of a tree wasn’t my idea of fun. Granted, countless nestlings all over the world went through this every year, but they only had to do it once, and for them it was simply fly or die trying. I wasn’t a nestling, and I wasn’t built to die. Not easily, anyway. I […]

Tempting Evil – Keri Arthur

Training sucked. Especially when the main aim of that training was to make me something I’d once vowed never to become—a guardian for the Directorate of Other Races. Becoming a guardian might have been inevitable, and I might have accepted it on some levels, but that didn’t mean I had to be happy about the […]

Moon Sworn – Keri Arthur

How do you say good-bye to a friend? How do you say sorry I wasn’t there for you, that I wasn’t strong enough, that I should have shot the bastard when I ɹrst had the chance? How can you say those things when he’s no longer around to hear the words? And how can you […]

Magic Misled – Keri Arthur

Samuel Kang was the picture of classic male perfection—oval-shaped face, chiseled cheekbones, and an extremely engaging smile. His shoulders were lovely and wide, his frame lean but muscular, and he had long legs that looked damn fine in close-fitting jeans—the very first thing I’d noticed when he’d walked through our café’s door. The second thing […]
