The Hunter’s Gambit

Ciel Pierlot

The city of Mavazem is plagued by aristocratic vampires who terrorise human citizens. But Kazan Korvic refuses to cower. As an expert blacksmith with a sharp grifter’s eye, her specialty lies in crafting, and using, weapons designed to kill the vicious creatures.

But, turns out, sword skills aren’t quite enough when a whole group of vampires attack her and steal her magical weapon. Kazan is captured and forced to attend the Vampire Court where she is forced to act as their ‘Queen’. For three days she will be waited and doted upon, until the lavish party where her reign will end in an extravagant feast… with Kazan as the main course!

Kazan plans to find her sword and get out, except with no allies in the castle, Kazan can feel the walls closing in. But she soon realises that she is not just trapped with these bloodthirsty bastards, they’re trapped with her too. And they’re not prepared for just how far she’s willing to go to survive.

CIEL PIERLOT is a disaster bisexual from the San Francisco Bay Area. She’s also a giant nerd and no, you cannot stop her from bragging about her lightsaber collection. When she’s not writing SFF novels, she’s busy being a digital artist and a hardcore gay-mer.

The Knife and the Serpent

Tim Pratt

Upon hearing of her grandmother’s murder, Tamsin Culver returns to her midwestern hometown to settle her family estate. There, she learns a secret: her grandmother is an exile of the Nigh-Space continuum, an adjacent reality with incredibly advanced technology. What’s more, her grandmother ruled as an ogliarch, meaning Tamsin is the heir to a vast fortune that only someone of her bloodline can access… but the enemies who tried to exterminate her family won’t be happy to see her return.

In San Francisco, grad student Glenn discovers that his girlfriend Vivy is a secret agent for the Interventionists: an inter dimensional organisation devoted to protecting the inhabitants of Nigh-Space from those trying to take advantage of the wealth of technology. When Vivy lands in trouble, Glenn finds himself on a sapient starship, hell bent on saving her. But when the ancestor of a previously exiled ruler returns, keeping each other out of harm’s way may be harder than they first anticipated...
