After three soul-destroying years of teaching unenthusiastic middle-schoolers, Theodora Fairchild is thrilled to be a student again, pursuing her doctorate in Latin. She’s sure John Winthrop University will be the intellectual home she’s always longed for, the place where she’ll finally fit in. But her teaching days aren’t quite over: Theo starts giving “humanities” lessons to sweetly nerdy post-doc Grant Proctor–and loses her heart.
But nobody in the Classics Department is quite who they seem… not even Grant. Theo’s arrival rekindles an ancient rivalry between two powerful enemies, and Theo herself is the prize. After she unwittingly betrays Grant to his oldest foe, she’s determined to rescue him–and herself–before it’s too late.
Because even gods can die–or wish they were dead. Continue reading

In the enchanted Southern California town of Escudillo, nothing is as it seems to be. Rogue clowns roam the streets, a mountain highway twists through the heart of town and no one driving it knows the town is even there, and when an old man, who owns a copper bowl everyone seems to want, dies in a fire, Tyler begins to learn a terrible truth about himself, the town’s past, and deadly peril.

Tong Yi lives in Taiwan and works as a messenger for Huli Transport–a company that specializes in delivering messages and packages for non-humans. He values his oath to the company and makes heroic efforts to ensure the messages entrusted to him arrive safely and on time.
However, between the awesome motorcycle he rides who insists on “dancing” with him by fishtailing and trying to dump him every chance she gets, and the brewing war between the non-humans, “…or die trying” seems more likely with every message he delivers.
And then his brother turns up as a combatant, and possibly his enemy…
