Book Description:

“This is Kenneth!” Who would predict a life-changing drama ten years after young Billy first meets his cousin?

As world war looms on the horizon, lonely Billy Wilson is delighted to learn his cousin is coming to live nearby. But frail, talented Kenneth proves to be a nightmare. Older, but smaller, devious Kenneth envies Billy’s superior strength and home comforts. He manipulates and bests Billy at every turn. The four parents see only Kenneth’s porcelain looks and perfect manners, oblivious to his psychological bullying.

Kenneth’s desire for power and territory mirrors in micro the tensions in Europe

Billy’s only protection is his secret symbol of power, a Cossack sabre. This has its own history on the Polish/German border at the start of WW1. During evacuation and wartime miseries, this icon inspires and sustains Billy as Kenneth increasingly invades every aspect of his life. Even after VE-Day, Billy cannot escape Kenneth’s manipulations, especially as they are now living in the same house, developing very different talents and suffering London’s post-war austerity. Soon adolescent tensions explode. The outcomes are dramatic, unpredictable and long-lasting.

Book Description:

A woman with more secrets than she realises.

A lord who has lost his luck.

A kingdom on the verge of war as vengeful lords fight to claim its throne.

Order can only reign over chaos for so long, and now, twenty years after claiming the Alekkan throne, King Ake Bluefinn once again has a fight on his hands. His enemies are stirring in the North, old resentments flaring, vengeance on their minds. The dreamers see what is coming, warning the king of a trouble greater than any he has faced, raising fears of unimaginable destruction and a winter colder than any that has come before.

Spurred on by his king’s warnings, Lord Reinar Vilander sails away from Ottby, looking for women to sell as slaves. Because the gods have taken his luck. Stolen it away. And just when he needs to strengthen his fortress to help the king, he has no silver and not enough men. For what man wants to fight for an unlucky lord, abandoned by the gods? Only those who seek silver. So Reinar needs to find a defenseless village, somewhere he can raid…

Alys de Sant has secrets. Some she keeps herself; others are hidden from her. Alys needs secrets because secrets will keep her safe. That’s what her grandfather told her. That’s why he made her hide who she really was, knowing that her life depended upon it. Yet Alys longs to be free. Free from her husband, who is cruel to her. Free from their small village, bordered by a long beach, where she likes to walk every morning with her children. Even free from her best friend, Stina, who is walking down the beach beside her, listening to the hungry gulls swirling above their heads, tasting snow on the wind, unaware that anything is wrong until Alys spins around, running, screaming, as the raiders round the headland, axes in the air, charging towards them…

Book Description:

Enter a darkened world where, so far, no one has won World War I and now dark monsters are choosing sides in the World First Wizard Complete Series boxed set. Dive into a double fisted tale of war, magic, and bloody conspiracies in the grim alternate history of the War to End All Wars.


At what cost victory?

Milo Volkohne, orphan, criminal, conscript, and unwilling warlock could tell you but you might not like the answer.

It is 1936 and the Great War still rages on, with no armistice in 1918 when the Russian Empire crumbled in the fire and blood of stillborn revolution.

The hellish no man’s land has spread like a blight over Europe as grim, unyielding leaders promise a resolve of iron and no mercy, no peace, no hope.

It would take a miracle to save humanity, but as Milo would tell you: be careful what you wish for.

Plunging into a world of sorcery, treachery, and madness the world’s first wizard will bargain with monsters, human or otherwise, fight for his life, and dare to hope that he’s selling his soul for something worthwhile.

But is any price too high to end the War to end all Wars?


The weight of the world would be enough but what if the world is on fire?

Well, then you fight fire with fire, and maybe a few of the undead for good measure, if you are Milo Volkohne that is.

But Milo’s cracking as the War grinds on.

Armies move and monsters scheme from the shadows as the fate of an entire nation hangs in the balance.

So no one’s got time for a broken wizard, even if he’s the only one.

Doomsday plots wait for no witch so with few new allies and too many new enemies, Milo’s going to have his work cut out for him.

At least it’s not the end of the world, right?


The War to End All Wars just got personal.

The World’s First Wizard was dragged into this fight kicking and screaming, but now that the dark conspiracies have dredged up specters of his past, Milo is determined to put them down once and for all.

His power growing with the stakes, Milo faces foes, human and otherwise, with aims that threaten to reshape the world, and they’re willing to do it at the cost of millions of souls. Milo, hero or not, can’t stand by, and so with his deathless bodyguard and fey girlfriend, he plunges into the dark, swimming upstream all the way.

But these waters are filled with hungry things, lurking just beneath the surface, things with long teeth and no fear of some paltry human sorcerer.

Milo’s going to have his work cut out showing them why humanity is officially off the menu

Book Description:

Anna Dahlberg grew up eating dinner under her father’s war-trophy portrait of Eva Braun.
Fifty years after the war, she discovers what he never did—that her mother and Hitler’s mistress were friends.

The secret surfaces with a mysterious monogrammed handkerchief, and a man, Hannes Ritter, whose Third Reich family history is entwined with Anna’s.

Plunged into the world of the “ordinary” Munich girl who was her mother’s confidante—and a tyrant’s lover—Anna finds her every belief about right and wrong challenged. With Hannes’s help, she retraces the path of two women who met as teenagers, shared a friendship that spanned the years that Eva Braun was Hitler’s mistress, yet never knew that the men they loved had opposing ambitions.

Eva’s story reveals that she never joined the Nazi party, had Jewish friends, and was credited at the Nuremberg Trials with saving 35,000 Allied lives. As Anna’s journey leads back through the treacherous years in wartime Germany, it uncovers long-buried secrets and unknown reaches of her heart to reveal the enduring power of love in the legacies that always outlast war.
