The Drogue

by M.A. Nichols

Jake is a pawn in a game he doesn’t understand.

Plagued by a barrage of abnormal energy around him, Jake is unaware of the power he possesses, and the part he plays. Hidden among the non-magic world, he knew he was different, and when his father disappears in a cloud of smoke, Jake finds himself thrust into a fight for which he’s not prepared. A fight in which more than his life is at stake.

Hounded by the malevolent group called the Dark Knights, Jake discovers he holds the key to the Drogue—a mysterious object that the Dark Knights have sought and killed for over thousands of years. Nobody remembers where it came from, but whoever has the Drogue holds a dangerous power. In a deadly race against the Dark Knights, Jake searches for his father and the Drogue.

For where the Dark Knights go, death follows.

The Seventh Friend

by Tim Stead

Hero. Monster. Saviour. Butcher. Madman. Recluse. Wolf Narak, the deadly and charismatic god of wolves, has earned all the names men give him, and since the climactic and bloody final battle of the Great War he has shunned the company of mortal men and withdrawn to his forest home. There he is troubled by dreams of blood and fire, tormented by memories of his own deeds.

But fate has not quite finished with the victor of Afael.

He receives an impossible message, and as he follows the trail a suspicion grows to a certainty within him. War is coming again, and Narak must leave his beloved wolves and once more take up his twin blades. Once again he must become the general of the six kingdoms, the terror of his enemies, a hero, a butcher, the bloodstained god.
