Ravensblood

In a world where death magic is sometimes the lesser of the evils, a dark mage risks everything for redemption.

To win a pardon, Raven must play a dangerous game of double agent. His mission: help the Guardians bring down his master William, the most powerful dark mage alive.

His only Guardian contact is Cassandra, his former lover and the apprentice he once betrayed. His best weapon is the Ravensblood, a fearsome magical artifact his master thought destroyed.

As Raven struggles to regain Cassandra's trust, the two of them devise a desperate plan to defeat William.

If their plan fails, Raven could lose everything: his freedom, his love, his life, and his soul.

And if William acquires the Ravensblood, he will gain the power to bring the world to its knees.

First in the award-winning Ravensblood series, set in an alternate Pacific Northwest.

Raven's Heart

Raven thought the master he betrayed was dead. Now he’s back, determined to destroy everyone and everything Raven ever loved.

 

Raven has left dark magic behind and found his place in the world. He has a fiancée, friends, and meaningful work. Yet a shadow hangs over everything.

 

William, his former master, the darkest and most powerful mage of their time, has returned, set on vengeance.

 

Will Raven find a way to defeat him, once and for all?

 

Or will he see the life he has built crumble around him as William rises once again to threaten the Three Communities, perhaps even the world?

 

Third in the award-winning Ravensblood series, set in an alternate Pacific Northwest.

Raven's Shade

A simple favor for a friend becomes a deadly challenge as Raven faces the highest stakes of his life.

A young man stands accused of committing a horrible crime using forbidden dark magic.

When reformed dark mage Corwyn Ravenscroft heads to the small, rural town of Devil's Crossing to launch an unofficial investigation, he soon discovers the simple case is more complex--and more dangerous--than he expected.

Far from home, Raven is out of his element and out of his area of expertise, but that's the least of his worries as more deaths pile up and a mysterious ancient force returns to threaten all life on earth. To stop it, Raven might have to sacrifice more than his life.

 

Fifth in the award-winning Ravensblood series, set in an alternate Pacific Northwest.

Raven's Wing

Raven on the run.

Raven escaped the world of dark magic he’d committed to as a bitter young man. But some people refuse to forgive and forget.

Accused of stealing of a dangerous artifact called the Ravensblood, he must stay out of custody long enough to track down the thief. It’s the only way to prove his innocence.

It’s also the only way to protect the world from danger the Ravensblood could present if wielded by the wrong hands.

Second in the award-winning Ravensblood series, set in an alternate Pacific Northwest.

Raven's Song

Can a reformed dark mage save an opera star from a deadly stalker? This novella is, if you will, Ravensblood 1.5, set between Ravensblood and Raven's Wing. These urban fantasies are set in an alternate-universe version of the Pacific Northwest, a world of impossible choices where sometimes death magic is the lesser of the evils. Raven's pardon and return still feel very new to him, and his attempts to find his footing again in the Three Communities are both helped and hindered by a GII agent who neither likes nor trusts him, but still needs his help.

 

This novella was originally published as part of Here Be Magic, a multi-author anthology which is no longer available for sale.
