Night Sanchez is a player in the unfolding end of the world, balanced on a knife’s edge. Something she never wanted to be.

The former magical assassin won’t run and refuses to hide. Night will do whatever it takes to save the people she loves—especially her daughter Faith, who carries a sleeping god known only as the Awakened, a ticking time bomb inside of her.

Night crafted a truce with the Watchers—descendants of the fallen angels—and killed assassins sent by the lethal magicians that trained her, before they could kill her first.

But the truce with the Watchers won’t hold forever, and the Angel of Death strains at the chains that bind him.

Can Night save Faith from the Awakened? Can she prevent the Angel of Death from taking over her will? Can she stop Death from moving the world closer to its doom?

The Faerie Summer Bundle

The summer sun bathes the earth in warmth and light,
Faeries dance under the moon at night.
Cross through the portal into a land ancient, beautiful, and wild.
See the wonders that enticed the stolen child.
Come away, O reader! To the Realm of Faerie.
But if you want to make it back home, you had better be wary…

This collection includes twenty tales of faeries and magic set in our world – and in others.

No Humans Allowed

Humans prove great fodder for fiction. But what about the universe of possibilities offered by the nonhuman protagonist? The eighteen daring humans of Fiction River’s latest volume explore just that. From a goblin who must choose whether to risk everything for love to a heroic rat adventuring at sea to sentient underpants (yes, underpants), these nonhuman tales demonstrate why Adventures Fantastic says: “If you haven’t checked out Fiction River yet, you should. There’s something for everyone.”
