Peace in Wroge came at a price.
The cost?
War.

Wroge was divided by the Saive War. The Arneuton kingdom enslaved the Keltir clans into their invasion, and swept across the territory, converting and culling conscripting the weak, culling the strong. Five Years of war, the blood of four races, millions of deaths. The Arneut conquered. The Keltir were released from their imprisonment, but the Vikir and Narz were forever banished from Wroge’s borders.

Draven fought for peace. He fought another man’s war and paid for his freedom in blood. But even peace comes with its price. Taxes to another man’s king. Draven’s fight might have ended with the Saive War, but the struggle to afford safety for his family is far from over.

When the Vikir threaten Wroge’s northern border they come with a debt of their own. And it’s not taxes they’re after. They come because of the Keltir’s betrayal in the Saive War. They come from blood.

But Wroge’s fate won’t be decided by ageing warriors and old grudges. The lives of four young men, divided by peace, united by conflict, will shape the future of the war torn land.

‘It Began With Ashes’ is the story of how life’s greatest struggle is to accept who you are – a tale of broken promises, bitter grudges, and brotherhoods bound in blood.

Bookstore owner and novice antiquarian, Sebastian Kaine is proud of his new profession and even prouder still of the collection of antique books on the occult that he keeps locked away in the basement of his bookstore. But his little utopia implodes when he wakes up in that same basement, bound and bloodied, and his prized collection all but destroyed. Making matters worse are the two strange men responsible for the carnage. They want The Seals of Abgal and insist Sebastian has it. Though he denies having any knowledge of the book, Sebastian soon finds himself at the receiving end of a violent interrogation–one, he fears, he may not survive. As he fights to stay alive, Sebastian will learn that The Seals of Abgal is no ordinary grimoire, and these men are no ordinary thugs.

When down-on-herself Rebecca Fowley traipses after a small, intriguing insect and on to the private property of heart-hardened rancher Elias Dellin, confusion and attraction abound. Rebecca is certain that she’s just become turned around in the brush by the highway and Elias is just as sure that she’s 45 miles away from the nearest town. Convinced to return with him to the family farm, Rebecca encounters Elias’ all-seeing but completely blind grandmother, Aurora, and a scene right out of an old western. But her first assumptions that the family is part of a strange society of re-enactors are wiped clean when Elias adamantly assures her that the year is 1843. Rebecca knows this can’t be true; when she parked her car to stretch her legs it was 1999. But just because their birthdays are separated by 165 years doesn’t mean it can’t work, especially with a couple of ethereal beings on their side.
What they’re saying about it:

“‘Just a Matter of Time’ is a wonderful adult fantasy that whisks you away into a world that is amazingly easy to get lost in. The characters are real, the emotions are both raw and lovely, and the descriptions are so breathtaking that you can see, feel and taste this delicious novel enfold you within every step of the journey. I found myself completely involved with the characters and whooping with joy at the end…my only warning is that you will fall helplessly in love with Rebecca and Elias and want to reread the entire tale; these characters become friends and it’s hard to let them go”

The Embodied glide through the busy streets of New York, uttering barely a sound.

Their eerie beauty comes from their perfect symmetry. Male, female, old, young…their faces are always absolutely symmetrical. Are they flawless humans, the epitome of evolution? Are they a genetically modified super-race? Are they extra-terrestrials? Once prep school student Kari Marriner becomes aware of their existence, she is driven to find the answer and finds herself ensnared in a web that reaches further than she could possibly have imagined.

Kari’s earliest memory is her father’s death in a car crash back in small-town Wisconsin. Now, 12 years later, her mother has been hired by a pseudo-religious organization in Manhattan called the Temple of Truth (a.k.a. the ToT). At Chelsea Prep, Kari develops a crush on classmate Cruz. But when she realizes that Noon, another attractive guy at school, is involved with the ToT, her curiosity gets the better of her.

Kari stumbles upon a secret tunnel leading from her apartment to another in the building, where an ancient book holds images she can scarcely believe, and a cavernous room contains… something inexplicable. As Kari pieces together the incredible evidence, she discovers that the ToT is run by other-worldly beings called The Embodied who influence human behavior and have established a global long-term human breeding program. But why? And what is her role in all this?
Just as she starts wondering whether the love she feels for Cruz is genuine or if her emotions are being controlled by The

Embodied, her mother is kidnapped and Kari has to figure out who is human, who is Embodied, and who she can count on to help rescue her mother.

Silent Symmetry is the exciting first novel in JB Dutton’s EMBODIED trilogy. The second installment, Starley’s Rust, will be published in late 2013.

What they’re saying:

“This is a fantasy of splendid proportions and the remaining two novels in this series not only have a lot to live up to but equally have a magnificent foundation from which to build on.”

I’m no hero.  In fact, up until a couple of days ago, I was the villain. Kidnapped  maidens, scared kids, stole magic tchotchkes—until I got into a little  scrape with the union. Now I’m cursed with the worst fate in New Never  City—no matter what I do, I gotta be nice.

So when a head-case princess  named Asia barges into my apartment and asks me to find out who whacked  her stepsister, Cinderella, I have no choice but to help her. And I’m  more than willing to head back to her parents’ castle and do some  investigating if it means I can get into her black leather cat suit.  Except this twisted sister has a family nutty enough to send the Biggest Baddest Wolf running for the hills—and a freaky little curse of her  own. . .

“More than f***ed-up. Demented. Hilarious.” —Mario Acevedo, author of Werewolf Smackdown

Anger is a gift.

The Arusyan Empire controls half the known  world, and its borders are still expanding. After ruthlessly conquering  Somaria, the king turns his armies westward and leaves his son, Prince  Azelas, to ward the southlands.
Against the mighty empire stands Carleon Orion, a former imperial soldier now leading the southerners in rebellion. Using their shared hatred of the Arusyans, Carleon took a  band of outcasts and rogues and turned them into deadly warriors.

Caught in the wake of the escalating conflict, Danario Solidor is taken in by  the rebels after his village is burned to the ground. He finds other  orphaned children like himself, and together they train and wait for the day they can avenge their loved ones.

Ashes in the Fall is a  new action-packed adventure about a young boy and an ex-soldier  struggling to carry on after their lives have been turned to ashes by  the empire.

What they’re saying about it:

“If you like books like The Sword of Truth series, or The Lord of the  Rings, you will most likely enjoy this book even though there is no  magic in the book.”
