Patto di sangue

Legami di sangue | Libro 2

Seguito di Alleanza di Sangue
Serie Legami di sangue, Libro 2

I maghi e i vampiri hanno stretto un’alleanza basata sul sangue e sulla magia, sperando di dare una svolta alla guerra contro i maghi oscuri. Alcuni legami mago/vampiro hanno lo stesso successo di quello di Alain Magnier e Orlando St. Clair, ma altri molto meno e, nonostante i fini comuni, sono fonte di discussioni, risentimenti e litigi tra alleati.

Seguendo l’esempio del suo migliore amico Alain, Thierry Dumont stringe un legame col vampiro Sebastien Noyer, nonostante si senta a disagio a essere così vicino a un vampiro – un uomo – poco tempo dopo la morte della moglie. Tuttavia, essi si rendono conto che la disperazione può essere la chiave per un’unione di successo e i due si trovano subito dediti alla sicurezza l’uno dell’altro.

Supportati dalle nuove forze, i capi dell’Alleanza ne annunciano l’esistenza al mondo intero, sperando così di raccogliere altri alleati contro i maghi oscuri, che minacciano di distruggere la vita sul pianeta. Mentre cerca di farsi strada all’interno del conflitto, l’Alleanza scopre che, nonostante i loro vantaggi, le collaborazioni mago/vampiro stanno alterando l’equilibrio dei poteri magici nel mondo, cosa, questa, che potrebbe costituire una minaccia addirittura maggiore della guerra stessa.

The God Hunters: Light and Shadow

The God Hunters | Book Three

The God Hunters: Book Three

The treachery of an ancient and sinister evil is on the rise again. The races that live in the universe known as the Expanse have been deceived by the MST, their so-called guardians, and the truth has finally emerged. Change is inevitable, but not without a fight.

As Keeper of the Citadel and endowed with supernatural abilities beyond imagination, David will shine as a beacon of hope to those in need, to those who have succumbed to what is known as the weakening agenda—for their so-called guardians fear losing control above all else. Worlds will perish. That much is certain. But from loss often comes a greater strength, a greater understanding of right and wrong, of duty and devotion.

Aided by his boyfriend Doug and his beloved companions, David will stand against both old threats and new. His newly acquired powers of spirit calling and shifting will serve as impressive fronts, and he will draw strength from his passionate love for Doug. The time nears when they will learn if that will be enough, if the races of the Expanse will be consumed by the coming shadows or if they will bathe in David’s light.

Charlie Fitzgerald is sick of being the kid nobody takes seriously. His older brother Colin is fighting vampires and other troublemakers in New York City, and Charlie wants in on the action—but no one will listen. Then he overhears the lycan council is looking for a human emissary to take a message of peace to a werewolf in the forests of Romania, and Charlie decides he's the man for the job.

Xan is furious: his best friend, Charlie, one of the Fitzgeralds he's vowed to protect, is walking into danger, and Xan chases him all the way to the freezing Romanian forest to save his stubborn butt. When Charlie is almost killed, Xan realizes he feels much more than friendship for his charge, and emotions that have been bubbling under the surface of his calm façade threaten to boil over and flood them both.

They end up in the middle of a political mess involving lycans, werewolves, and nosy vampires, and if they make it out alive, the friendship between the headstrong hunter and his bullheaded protector might turn into a love neither can live without.

There, supernatural beings abound and formidable adversaries lurk in the shadows.
