A whole new series from the world of the Echo Trilogy. Three years ago, the gods abandoned us. We've been alone ever since. Kat Dubois is immortal, and she's retired. She's long since hung up her sword and left assassinating immortals to someone else...anyone else. She's now a hard drinking, sass-flinging Seattle tattoo artist with the innate ability to read people's fortunes using her charmed deck of tarot cards. Her days of bloodshed are over, and she has nothing but time--an eternity, in fact--to hide from her past. Until someone from her past shows up on her doorstep with news that her beloved older brother and mentor, Dominic, has gone missing. Kat may be the only person with the right skills--and access to the right magic--to track him down. She must confront her past if she's to have any chance of finding and saving her brother. She must fight her demons. She must embrace the power within her. She must become the Ink Witch.

When immortals clash, mortals will pay the ultimate price. Kat Dubois has been sidelined. With a single word from Heru-no-her plans to save humanity from the Cascade Virus one mortal at a time are put on hold indefinitely. But Kat isn't willing to sit by, watching the world as she knows it crumble around her. While Heru awaits a miracle discovery that may never come, Kat shuns his orders and takes rogue action. Thanks to her trusty deck of tarot cards, she knows that at least the universe is on her side. Probably. Alongside Nik, Kat throws herself into her work, intending to transform humans into immortal Nejerets as quickly as possible. She refuses to give up, even as her partner in humanitarian crime seems to be losing his grip on reality. Even as she, herself, senses that she's fighting a losing battle. Even as the universe reveals its truly duplicitous nature and the way onward seems impossible. Kat is nothing, if not stubborn. She won't give up. Not without a fight.

Kat Dubois never asked to be the emissary for the good guys. Diplomacy isn't her strong suit, and patience isn't one of her personal virtues.

Kat's mission is complicated when a mysterious disease crops up among Seattle's homeless population. It's up to her to find a cure while the infection is contained, and to do that, she must go straight to the source--Ouroboros. It's been a week since Kat promised to come after the twisted corporation; the time has come for her to fulfill that promise.

In the blink of an eye, all kinds of magic are let loose, and Jack finds himself aboard an ocean liner in the throes of a Titanic-like disaster. It all links back to Pharos, the seventh wonder of the world. An ancient power needs to be restored. Can Jack learn to navigate time before it’s too late to save the one person who can help him unravel the secrets of the disc? Whether he likes it or not, there’s no more hiding away.

After subduing the pagan religions in the east, halting the march of Islam in the west, and conquering the continent for the Merovingian kings, mayor of the palace Charles the Hammer has one final ambition—the throne. Only one thing stands in his way—he is dying. Charles cobbles together a plan to divide the kingdom among his three sons, betroth his daughter to a Lombard prince to secure his southern border, and keep the Church unified behind them through his friend Bishop Boniface. Despite his best efforts, the only thing to reign after Charles’s death is chaos. His daughter has no intention of marrying anyone, let alone a Lombard prince. His two eldest sons question the rights of their younger pagan stepbrother, and the Church demands a steep price for their support. Son battles son, Christianity battles paganism, and Charles’s daughter flees his court for an enemy’s love. Based on a true story, Anvil of God is a whirlwind of love, honor, sacrifice, and betrayal that follows a bereaved family’s relentless quest for power and destiny.
