Deadlock by CE Clayton Book Tour

“There are those willing to fight for you, if you fight for yourself.”

The plan was always to go to Amardeep, just not like this.

Ellinor Rask always planned to head for the Ashling’s island in order to hunt down those who had killed her husband, but now she’s going for something she didn’t expect: help. With Ellinor’s magic still beyond her reach, the only ones capable of removing her magical shackle are the sentient androids Ellinor has vowed to destroy. If only she can tolerate the Ashlings long enough to aid them in return, of course.

But getting the attention of those who could help proves difficult, and more dangerous than anticipated. Knowing whom to trust becomes a frantic dance as Ellinor and her friends traverse the toxic island in disguise, going from fight-club dance arenas to drug labs all in their search for assistance. Ellinor discovers, however, that hiding a dreeocht who is becoming more unstable by the second is increasingly deadly.

If hiding was all Ellinor had to worry about, she might have a chance at survival. But something waits beneath the glitter of Amardeep that Ellinor and her friends are not expecting . . . something they may be unprepared to face.

Princess of Beasts Release Day Tour

In the entire kingdom of Ahri, Princess Sahri is the only person who can talk to animals and heal them. She’s beloved by the people, but she’s living a lie. Deep inside, she wants a man who she’s not just forbidden to be with, but he’s also a criminal, part of the Ahri Reformation—using the Rune of Obedience to force criminals who fight well to put their talents to better use. What’s worse, is the man—her bodyguard, Jekre—hates her and the entire royal family for what they’ve done.

But those are the least of Sahri’s worries.

The Anati are creatures who bring life and springtime to Ahri every time they return from their long migration across the Sea. But when someone murders them, the kingdom faces a famine that will destroy them all.

Not all hope is lost—yet.

Two of the Anati had eggs. If Sahri can use her powers to keep the eggs long enough to help them get to the nesting grounds, the Anati will live. As the young ones grow, they can heal the land and save the kingdom and Sahri’s people.

The only problem is that her parents ordered her bodyguard to keep her inside the palace. The Rune of Obedience forces Jekre to comply—which means he’ll do whatever it takes to keep Sahri inside.

Who killed the Anati? The threat to the kingdom is a mystery, unknown by everyone except Jekre. And he’s been sworn to silence.

Can Sahri escape, and if she does, will she be able to get the eggs to the nesting ground in time?

Or will a famine bring Ahri to its knees?

Cynetic Wolf

It’s 2096, sixty years after ninety percent died from a man-made Bioplague. Humanity has splintered into four unequal subspecies: immortals, cyborgs, enhancers, and subservient half-human, half-animal hybrids.

The world is anything but equal. Hybrids everywhere are suffering, but sixteen-year-old Raek Mekorian, a wolfish with a nose for trouble, doesn’t see an alternative. Except the Resistance, who don’t stand a chance against the world government. His mom always said, “Keep your head down.”

And he does, until his sister is murdered by a pair of cyborgs. Overnight, his simple life is shattered, fracturing the rigid governmental caste as he is thrust into the dangerous world of superhuman hit squads, Resistance uprisings, and secrets better left unsaid.

With only built-in blasters and the advice of a mysterious professor, Raek must navigate crushing betrayal, self-doubt, and a limitless enemy whose evil knows no bounds.

The fate of mankind may rest in his hands.

Blurb – New London: 2067
Britain struggles to rebuild after the crushing devastation of the Great Flood.
Those in power have formed a new regime in the wake of the disaster.
Whether it is a hard-won utopia or an oppressive nightmare depends
entirely on gender. Unmarried women have no legal rights or
protection, and their access to education and employment is limited to
ensure their servitude. Yet a fire burns within them to prove they are
far from the weaker sex, and their rebellion seeks to tear down the
patriarchal rule.
Cerys and Gloria have very different dreams, but a common enemy.
Joining an underground alliance, they discover a group of scientists
in possession of a weapon powerful enough to change society forever.
Their radical solution is not without great risk. Failure means death
or imprisonment. Success could land them in a seat of authority, over
a society that loathes them, without the requisite skills to thrive.

The Poet’s War by Francis O’Neill

the poet's war


It is Europe’s darkest time in near memory. American warrior poet Alistair Stears, thrown into Italian WWI through his mother’s love for an Italian colonel, experienced a convoy of the dying through burning provinces of Italy in the terrible retreat of 1917. It brought from him the great English poem of the Italian war.

One war later, all gracious things await destruction, knowledge is burned, thought coarsened, manners trashed, perverted faith and truth follow the dictators’ flags-vultures to grace. Stears is a famous poet now, married into German-Italian nobility and determined with his wife to fight the Axis powers. He risks everything to protect Italy and all else he loves. He finds that the bravest and fiercest resistance may be the rightness of a poem, the closing of a letter, the welcome of guests, the embrace of a bride, faith toward a fallen friend-and that it may also come from the barrel of a gun. Spanning both world wars, The Poet’s War finds loyalty, patriotism, war, deception, intrigue, romance, love, and death swept up in a maelstrom that spans generations and changes Europe forever.


A Q&A with Francis O’Neill Author, The Poet’s War 

Question: How, if at all, did writing this book differ from writing your earlier works in the 

80s and 90s? 

Francis O’Neill: My ‘style,’ a word I rather shy from, is never and always the 

same. Reading my first real book (Agents of Sympathy) it seems written by anyone but 

me; if you ask me to say exactly where the difference lies, I don’t think I could. My 

characters, now and ever, float up out of deep pools, and I am always startled to meet 


Question: Who do you consider to be the great “warrior poets” whom your protagonist 

Alistair may or may not be modelled after? 

Francis O’Neill: True ‘great warrior poets’ are very scarce, both being rather full-time 

jobs. Alistair (and I) would insist that the saint, the warrior, and the artist meet as points 

of a triangle, by which they are joined–but they are not the same. Castiglione, Alistair’s 

hero and the great essayist of the courtier-warrior would agree, though he did not quite 

say it. 

If you mean ‘poets of war,’ then, 1,2,3: Homer, Virgil, the poet of Le Geste de Roland

Question: What can a return to the era of grace and civility teach us in modern times? 

Francis O’Neill: Grace has nothing to do with an era, though more understood in 

certain past eras than our own. What is it, and what is it not? Among those I have 

actually known the two most certainly endowed with grace have been HH Prince Geza 

von Hapsburg, and my grandmother’s late head parlour maid. How seen? A certain 

lightness. A capacity to make everybody nearby somehow happy by doing nothing that 

anybody can see. Attention. Voice. 

In the Revolution, by the guillotine (it was abominably run, as you might expect), a 

nobleman and a lady he knew well, both condemned and filthy from the dungeon, were, 

as you might say, ‘next to go.’ He said, “Madame, I fear that this time I must pass in 

front of you.” She replied, “Mon ami, surely you will not take my lady’s prerogative from 

me at the very end.” Magnificent, because grace is never so much grace as in the face 

of terror. 

Grace is not a time. It is not crinolines. It is light. It is holding yourself up from the floor. It 

is preferring loyalty to advantage. 

Question: Do you have a personal philosophy? 

Francis O’Neill: Believe in God. Have good manners. Never mail a letter the day you 

write it. Don’t keep women waiting. Don’t eat chocolate with Sauternes or a cigar. Never 

be rude unintentionally. That’ll about do it.

Soul of the Crow by Jessaca Willis

IG_SotC_CoverReveal_03 (1)


Book Blurb:

Darkness threatens to consume all in Soul of the Crow, an epic adventure of magic and betrayal, perfect for fans of Jay Kristoff and Leigh Bardugo.

Death is written for all, but only the Councilspirits can see when a life has reached its end, and only a Reaper can deliver the final, fatal touch.

Sinisa is one of them.

For three years, she’s served the underrealm as a Reaper, killing mortals and siphoning their souls with the aid of her crow familiar. She only needs to collect one more to ascend as a Shade—a coveted status of power in the underrealm—and to mark the momentous occasion, her Councilspirit mentors have chosen the Princess of Oakfall as her final kill.

It should be easy.

But when the Prince of Oakfall discovers his sister is in danger, he flees the palace with her. Sinisa is left with only two options: journey through the mortal realm to find and slay her mark or face the consequences of returning to Veltuur empty-handed. It’s no choice at all. She has come too far and is too close to earning her title to let them escape.

Besides, no one can outrun a Reaper.

Or can they…

Soul of the Crow is a dark high fantasy adventure with reapers/assassins, bandits, prophets, and enough death magic to keep the entire mortal realm quaking with fear. If you loved The Nevernight ChroniclesThe Shadows Between UsKing of ScarsReign of the Fallen, or books by Jenna Moreci and Laura Thalassa, you will devour this ethereal, gothic saga.

Come. Walk through the forest of the underrealm and discover what’s lurking there in the shadows.
