Cover Reveal: Tales of the Executioners Collection Volume One

I haven’t posted much lately because I’ve been editing my fingers off, working on the Tales of the Executioners Volume One.

COLLECTION COVER VOLUME 1 - HIGH RES

Executioner is the name given to the vampires’ elite enforcers; those who uphold The Laws and administer punishment. In Volume One meet some of those enforcers, learn their origin stories, feel their heartbreaks, their joys, travel with them on assignments, and see how The Guild came to be – but always, always, be wary of their leader, Malick. Contains expanded versions of some stories, available exclusively in the collection, as well as the exclusive stories Reymen: On Pain of Punishment, Kateesha: Call of Blood, and Clara: Pretty Pet. Also includes the Executioner Timeline to help keep everything straight.

Includes:

  • Jamie: Blood of Betrayal
  • Beldren: What we Deserve
  • Verchiel: Never-Ending Question (expanded edition)
  • Byrn: At Cristmas (expanded edition)
  • Clara: Pretty Pet (Bonus Story)
  • Daniel: Black Luck
  • Reymen: On Pain of Punishment (collection exclusive)
  • Kateesha: call of Blood (collection exclusive)
  • Jorick: The Price of Freedom
  • Krill: Dreadful Note of Preparation
  • Dismas: Prayers of the Damned
  • Mary: Chasing a Killer
  • Griselda: Pack of Wolves
  • Ark: Echo from the Past (expanded edition)

Where are the rest of the stories? Look for Volume 2 in late November.

Are you excited for the collections? Which Executioner do you want to read about the most?

KIOKO SPECIAL COVER2.jpg

Contains Spoilers for Ashes of Deceit.

Only an Executioner for two weeks, Kioko is assigned mid-job to drop everything and help Ark apprehend a vampire-human duo wanted for murder. But it’s not just any duo: it’s the legendary Hand of Death Jorick and his so-called human pet. With a record that involves killing up to five Executioners, has The Guild really decided that just the two of them can bring him in? Luckily for Kioko, Malick and the secret laboratory have something up their sleeves. Now, she just has to hope their experimental weapon works.

Jorick.png

Jorick has served Malick for hundreds of years but, since marrying Velnya, he’s wearied of his duty. With a final assignment to carry out, Jorick will finally be freed to live a life of quiet and peace – a life free from fighting and death. But what he finds when he gets home will shatter all of his dreams for the future and leave him hurtling down the road to revenge.

Griselda: FREE on Smashwords!

griselda

In the citadel, it’s hard to tell who’s your enemy and who’s your friend – or it is for the Executioners. No wonder they need human guard dogs to protect them while they sleep. When Griselda’s human is compromised, will one of her fellows take advantage of the situation, or will they hesitate long enough for her to find a solution? Who knew vampires had so many problems?

Jamie

Wounded in battle, Jamie crawls home, desperate to see his wife and family again. When he wakes miraculously healed, he’s bombarded with one horrible revelation after another. His wife is dead, and his father hung as a traitor. But how is it that his sister and brother-in-law were spared? Is their story true, or did his brother-in-law speed them to the grave to get his hand on the title? And what does the mysterious Eagan – who now claims to be their master – have to do with it?

Jamie’s origin story can be read as a standalone.

Zuri: Trapped

ZURI SPECIAL COVER2.jpg

 

Warning: Contains spoilers for Ashes of Deceit. Taken prisoner by Oren’s war coven, Zuri is held captive for twelve days. When he returns to the citadel, Eileifr refuses to reinstate him as an Executioner, forcing him to take “time to recuperate”. Rather than the healing vacation its meant to be, Zuri feels just as trapped as he was by the war coven – maybe even more so.

Greneth: Halloween Hijinks

Just in time for Halloween!

A cartoon vampire on the “haunted house” advertisement catches Greneth’s eyes. Then, a couples-only discount sweetens the deal, if he can find someone to take. Griselda seems the perfect choice, but when she starts asking silly questions – like just what is a haunted house, anyway? – and talking about so-called real ghosts, he wonders if he’s made the right choice.
