Summary:

A quest for power. A growing evil. Can a scholar of magic keep an incredible discovery from the forces of chaos?

Wizard and bookworm Athala Dohn pursues her research with a fiery passion. So when she uncovers evidence of an ancient spell buried deep within the city, she won’t rest until she’s the one who makes the find. Determined to outwit potentially-deadly magical protections, Athala brings help: a Conscript, Elise Bresch, and a barbarian, Ragan Ermolt. Together they enter the sewers completely unprepared for what awaits… With undead skeletons, giant rats, and even a dragon in their path, Athala never expected a set of metal bars to thwart her. But when a corrupt man imprisons and tortures her and her friends, the scholar realizes her curiosity may have unleashed destruction upon all of Neuges. Athala has one chance to escape captivity and claim the spell before the Age of Mortals slips from humanity's grasp. Ancients is the first book in the Heroes by Necessity saga of sword and sorcery fantasy novels. If you like magical Dungeons and Dragons inspired worlds, multifaceted and diverse characters, and pulse-pounding action, then you’ll love Riley S. Keene’s epic tale.

Summary: Death, be not proud… The conclusion of the war between Elizabeth Bathory and the Guardians of Gaia draws closer, but the theriomorphs and their allies are caught between vampires loyal to Elizabeth Bathory’s daughter, Anna, and humans controlled by Elizabeth and her sire, Thrace. With the forces of evil now pressing on them from two sides, the theriomorphs need help, and they need it fast! And soonest our best men with thee do go... It has been five hundred years since Antonio de Barajas, one of the oldest surviving theriomorphs, lost his mate at the hands of his worst enemy. But Gaia never revealed the whole truth about Raphael’s fate, and Antonio is shocked when Raphael arrives to train Evan St. John and Adam Carson as true Dark Guardians. Yet the man who returns after so long is not the same man Antonio once loved. The hard and lonely life as Gaia’s hunter has changed Raphael almost as much as his lost memories of Antonio and the love they once shared. Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men... Antonio must work with the stranger who wears his lover’s face, and while Raphael is welcomed by most of the team, one member sees his return as a threat to his own place in Antonio’s life. But Thrace has allied himself with terrorists who possess a weapon of mass destruction. Now the theriomorphs and Dark Guardians must work together in a race against time to discover Thrace’s plan. Even as Antonio and Raphael are irresistibly drawn to one another, Antonio risks losing far more than his heart this time. If he and his team fail in their mission, millions will die, for Thrace will stop at nothing to destroy Gaia once and for all.

Summary: Though some struggles have ended in victory, ease and contentment are not the fate of the gods of war. Instead they must contemplate the sometimes terrible and frightening nature of their powers—and the effect those powers have on the people they love.   After their campaign in Ummana, the gods of war return to the Valley with their ranks finally complete. Sic is the eighth Emeris to join Renaldo and Canubis in their war against the Good Mother. Even so, they must wait for their powers to manifest, and trials lay ahead.   It is only when a tragedy befalls Aegid, Kalad, and Daran that Sic learns the extent of his abilities as a Luksari. What he achieves will change Daran forever—and set him up for trauma that leaves him doubting his relationship with Aegid and Kalad. Daran must affirm his commitment to his lovers and his new status among them through blood and violence.   Even though Renaldo and Casto’s relationship has improved, they’re still struggling now and then, which could prove to be more dangerous than they think—because the Good Mother is already plotting her next move.
