It’s hard to find a book that doesn’t play off of other concepts that have been used before…I honestly felt like every type of demon story has been covered but boy was I wrong. I honestly want to go out and buy this book and the second one…I love a good book that can use the regular world and then create a whole different world within the same story. It has all the good things of a fantasy novel with the mixture of a modern YA romance novel. If you like Twilight, Vampire Academy, The Iron Fey, any novel on that line; then you will like this book." Rebekah, Goodreads"I loved this book beyond words! In a way, this surprised me since I don’t normally read fantasy, much less demon oriented books, but King does such a masterful job at creating a world and characters that capture your attention, I couldn’t put it down…King’s unusual take on the struggles of navigating the teenage years is absolutely refreshing." J.Andersen, Author "At What Cost""Penelope King has written such an engaging novel! The words flow off the page, and the transitions between Liora and Lucky are so brilliantly written that you feel as though you really are reading about two different characters. This is one of the best indie novels that I have read so far, and Penelope has earned herself a place on my favourite indie author list!"

Welcome to the new age of talking animal Fantasy!SEMI-FINALIST for the Kindle Book Review’s 2012 “Best Indie Novel of the Year” competition.Overview:A world of magic in it’s infancy….There is a time when history begins; a time when those who live feel the need to write their story, for those who come after them to read. When recollection of events of importance cannot be left to one’s offspring alone, but must be shared with all.Then there is a time where history transcends into legend; when strongly held beliefs are tried by fire, and traditions are questioned. There are beginnings that truly are beginnings and those that were only thought to be.This is that world; this is truly their beginning. What they thought was knowledge, was only a foundation. They will delve into a depth they have never known, discover things they never thought imaginable, and struggle to uphold the truth rather than be consumed by it. With magic in its infancy, and a world in turmoil, an endless chain of possibilities lie dormant. Rousing them has the potential for paragon or chaos, and only time will tell.Just as Leonardo da Vinci has mapped out the human body, and the world has begun to discover the mysteries within, so it is on Archana. With the rudimentary structure in place, they now have what it takes to discover what magic can do; both the mundane and the divine. Lore begins in these days, and mythology will forever echo their names.News: The third book in the beloved Osric’s Wand series, The Well of Strands, will be available early May, 2014

When an FBI Internal Affairs investigation lands the Preternatural Crimes Unit in a bureaucratic spank-fest, it feels like the perfect time for Marnie Baranuik to skip town and lend her expertise to a bear-sized Canadian cop who doesn’t want her help with his case, his love life, or his car stereo. Back in her childhood stomping grounds, Marnie leaps into action, facing an exorcist in skinny jeans, a slap-happy specter, and an old friend up to new tricks. Are ghosts behind a string of unusual deaths? Why didn’t her revenant companion, Lord Harry Dreppenstedt, tell her he had a Combat Butler? Can she survive dinner with her parents? With a shifty man of the cloth offering her soul’s redemption, and a revelation that could change the future of her love life, she has her gloved hands full. She may not make a great first impression, but no one makes a Last Impression quite like Marnie.

The Netherworld.
I am Gaia Samuelle and I should have died in the car accident that killed my friends. Only I didn’t. It wasn’t a miracle that saved me; it was love. My best friend Marina thinks I’m being seduced by a demon. She thinks she can save me. But she doesn’t understand. I don’t need saving. All I need is him.
Gabriel is my Protector. He’s watched over mortals for centuries. Not once has he broken the rules. Until now. For reasons neither he nor I understand, he let me live. He traded my death for love–our love. And that’s forbidden. If Heaven finds out, he’ll be annihilated.
Now, we’re caught in a war between Heaven and Hell. The battle has begun.
What if your entire life was based on a lie—a lie to conceal who you really were, and a lie to protect another destined to save humanity? In a land where shape-shifters and dangerous forest creatures roam free, Ailia and Lucia discover that they are bound to each other in ways they had never imagined, and nothing can prepare them for the ominous journey that lies ahead.
It’s not easy being a seventeen-year-old adopted peasant girl in the Viking-inhabited Northlandic Kingdom, especially when you have terrifying mare dreams of an evil Empress named Eiess, and when your friends oust you because they think you are cursed. But Ailia’s on the verge of discovering that she hasn’t even seen the tip of the iceberg that sleeps below…
On Winter Solstice Ailia visits her favorite place to ponder: a large cliff overlooking her hometown. On her way home, Eiess and an army of Vikings capture her before attacking the Northlandic Kingdom. After usurping the Northlandic Throne, Eiess immediately suspends the seasons on the darkest and coldest day of the year and begins her preparations for the prophesied battle to end all battles.
Princess Lucia, sole heir to the Nothlandic Throne, is taken prisoner by Eiess and is thrown into the castle’s tower. For months, Lucia wastes away, never knowing when this nightmare of beatings, starvation and bitter cold will end. But when she miraculously escapes, she learns that she has a twin sister she must find before Eiess completely destroys the Northlandic Kingdom.
Months later, Ailia wakes up in a glacier cave with no memory of how she ended up there. On her way home, a handsome, yet mysterious young man named Soren rescues her from wolves and a dangerous shape-shifter. Ailia is immediately drawn to Soren, thinking she knows him from somewhere, maybe from her dreams of another life? He reveals he is a Sentinor sent by the gods to defeat Eiess and is waiting to be reunited with his soul mate, Lucia, so they together can defeat the Empress.
As Eiess continues to amass her forces, Ailia, Lucia and Soren are about to discover that their destinies are intertwined behind a veil of dark secrets and lies. If they are to take back the Northlandic Throne, they must work together and form an alliance.
But their mission to overthrow the Empress is stalled when the secrets and lies surface. And when a strong love develops between two, jealousy and duplicity arise between them, causing one of them to betray the others – a betrayal which puts their lives and the lives of humanity in grave danger.
