Summary: Like a spout pushing its way through soil extending deep mighty roots as it grows firm and tall, Michael like those around him has become renewed in the sun. The Wheel of Creation continues to turn through tragedy and triumph with secrets and mysteries revealed, truth discarding deceit to rot away into dust. Terror still lurks in shadow, hinting at battles yet to come and while the union of souls may reign down catastrophe upon all involved, there is a newly shared optimism that this town, rebirthed and revived again after decades can meet the oncoming storm together. Bonded in battle, humbled in heart new friendships have replaced old animosities as all the residents are finding their place in creation.Despite the odds, the couple continues their path toward blending, but if the sun sets on their hopes or the union is not supported by the Mother, disaster could befall not just Michael and Kurra but the entire Grove.Book four of The Place Of Things is Blood. The blood spilled and shared through trial and combat, forged in a family or spilled through injury, death, or pain and joy. Will the Great Mother approve of a blending of souls, or will the remains and splatter of not just Michael, but all those he holds dear be splashed in chunks upon the wedding alter.As this story concludes in the middle it continues on like the cycle of the seasons. Never ceasing always evolving. Until next time, Love from the Sacred Grove.

Summary: I've embraced bonds I've never known with the Red Sisters, even as I risk condemnation for a secret I keep. A talent unique among Dark Elves and too much like our enemies. Hard at play in the wild underground tunnels outside of my city, I discover a magic-laden passage guarded by a twisted Drider. Though I escape with my life, the Sisterhood cannot deny my presence in this forbidden lair. The Priestesses and the Valsharess must be informed. I am caught in the cascades of revelations which follow. Cruel practices and centuries-old terrors arise when I am called to serve the Priestess Wilsira and her demon-blooded son. I am not the first to confront the true faces governing the city or the consuming power of the Sanctuary, but my hidden talent reveals blind spots ignored by my elders, vulnerable and venomous at once. Can I pay the costs when weighing my submission with resistance? Will I choose my battles well, aiding my Sisters to alter the Matriarchy in our favor over the Priesthood? Or will trying see me fall prey to the hungers of the city's worst monstrosities like so many young fighters before me? In The Daedal Pit, intrigue and horror, action, and drama weave Etaski's third act of the Spider Queen's web into a consummation of promise catapulting one determined survivor to a place she could only see in her dreams.

Summary: While Sacrum Umbra showed us the darkness of our own shadow, and In Ventre Tuo the guts of our inner monster, The Lesser Apocrypha is still another beast altogether. Meant to gather together the stranger stories, it contains some of the more surreal and ephemeral stories, the ones that just are without much rhyme or reason. Stories like an odd moment in the park, the strange child who won't stop haunting you, an alien invasion that gets very personal, an AI born of a lolcat, monsters in the woods, and a spell gone terribly wrong.

Summary: In the dark heart of our imagination, and the haunted corners our past there are places we fear to tread. As much as we might try to outrun them, as much as we might try to deny their truths, we are owned by their shape, molded by their claws. The story of our being, they form a Sacrum Umbra, a sacred shadow of improbable origin- our own dark heart.

Summary: The helpless Noble I'd once been, she is no more. I am Red Sister Sirana, watching my city from the shadows. Once silent and disposable, I've found a place among the Sisterhood of Sivaraus, coarse, crude, and stirring to my blood. In crimson uniform I walk among sensual consorts, studious wizards, and sadistic Priestesses. I am an initiate with true influence in my underground city, a power both freeing and addicting. Everyone keeps secrets which bind them up if they jerk on the web too hard, and none are more vulnerable than novices wielding new power. Should my own secret come to the surface, I know I can't survive alone. Sivaraus will always need new Red Sisters, no matter what strangeness we bring with us. In Treasure Revealed, A.S. Etaski weaves threads of intrigue and action in this second tale of the Sister Seekers, where a new fighter tastes her potential in new connections that she must dare to strengthen by choice.

Summary: Under the dirty streets of Ismae’s greatest port city, an old nightmare waits for Sylandair and Aliara, one that is stealing Dockhaven’s children, one only they can end. When the pair escaped their owner and abuser years ago, they left him behind in a ball of blue flame, but as more children disappear near the city’s desalinization plant, their suspicions turn to the predator they believed dead. Accompanied by their less-than-reliable puka scout Schmalch, they delve into the forgotten depths of the patchwork city. Their search will lead to a twisting world of corruption and experimentation, uncover horrors greater than any they imagined, and summon memories they never wanted to exhume. A dark science fantasy action-adventure horror, Things They Buried is the first full-length novel of Ismae, a world where science sometimes appears as magic and history as myth, where monsters make themselves and heroes are wholly unintentional. This novel contains adult themes and violence.

Summary: My sister broke her neck, and the Red Sisters suspect I pushed her. They're watching me now. I'm afraid but also ready for them. I am too young to be trapped in the most wretched spot of any scheme: accused of killing the Matron's heir. Dark Elves live for intrigue in our underground city of Sivaraus, and justice means nothing to the Red Sisters who enforce the Queen's edict. Yet, I know the rules bend for the cunning and the bold, if only I can seize on the aspirations of those who succeeded before me. I must confront what lies beneath the ravening eyes of the Sisterhood, for they will give me no choice. I must discover that which is unspoken as they gaze at me. If I would thrive in pervasive webs of conspiracies, I must fight to reweave my place within them. In No Demons But Us, A.S. Etaski spins the first threads of an intense and epic tale, in which the trials of a young Davrin test her resolve to rise from the depths of the fear and hatred tearing her down. Sister Seekers is adult epic fantasy series with an ever-broadening scope, perfect for fans of entwined plots, challenging themes, elements of erotic horror, and immersive worldbuilding. Sexuality and inner conflict play into the character growth with intrigue, action, and fantastical magic.

Summary:

Bad "Things" lurk in dark, abandoned spaces...

Love, Death, & The After: Abandoned Spaces picks up the story where Rainey and her Team, along with Kendale's survivors, left off in Darkness.

Escaping a late-night Nagual attack, and with her lover held together by "shoelaces and bailing wire," Rainey encounters the secret behind the Nagual hidden within a black site lab--a secret from The Before with a treacherous purpose in The After.

Stopping the Nagual plan is hard enough, but her team has betrayed the trust of the town's survivors, while an attack by the Nagual's "Maker" and his militant allies looms. When someone compromises Preston's life, Rainey might be out of time and luck altogether.

The black site's lead scientist puts his agenda on hold until he and his militia support team can eliminate Rainey and her team. Tesla has a golden opportunity to test his Nagual creations against an old nemesis and the geopolitical forces standing in the way of his greater destiny.

Meanwhile, the emergent Nagual, Adam and Cain, have plans of their own.

Book 2 of 3 in this four part series, "Love, Death, & The After: Abandoned Spaces" brings a science-fiction take on cutting edge bioengineering that pits the limits of romance, loyalty, and community against a violent world hell-bent on devouring it all.
