THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN LOSING EVERYTHING... IS FORGETTING WHAT YOU LOST.
Once the powerful prince of Renol, William is a shell of the man he once was. Living under the curse of a powerful witch, William has spent 100 years making deals on her behalf and mourning the loss of his first love.
Belle has spent her life confined within the limits of her city, Paylor, and is now bound to a man she does not love. When she dares to venture outside the city's gates in search of something she's lost, she finds more than she ever expected.
As Belle and William embark on a journey of love and mourning, passion and forgiveness, they discover that sometimes what we lose isn't as important as what we find.

?Kalila and Dimna? or ?The Panchatantra? (also known in Europe since 1483 as ?The Fables of Bidpai?) is a multi-layered, inter-connected and variable arrangement of animal stories, with one story leading into another, sometimes three or four deep. These arrangements have contributed to world literature for over 2000 years, migrating across ancient cultures in a multitude of written and oral formats. All our beast fables from Aesop and the Buddhist ?Jataka Tales? through La Fontaine to Uncle Remus owe this strange, shape-shifting 'book' a huge debt.
In its original Arabic format, ?Kalila and Dimna? (?The Panchatantra? being its Sanskrit precursor), ostensibly constitutes a handbook for rulers, a so-called 'Mirror for Princes' illustrating indirectly, through a cascade of teaching stories and verse, how to (and how not to!) run the kingdom of your life. In their slyly profound grasp of human nature at its best (and worst!) these animal fables, usually avoiding any moralistic human ...
The smell of blood still fresh in his mind, Detective Mike Amador returns from the war in Afghanistan to take up his job with the Dallas PD and finds he's inherited a family curse that summons the Mamamatay, a legendry cold blooded killer. Transported into the world of the occult, he'll find his sense of justice clashes with the brutality of a vengeance seeking alter ego bent on fulfilling his desire to end the bloodshed and crime in the city. Through force of will and blind luck, this evil twin becomes a formidable partner in his quest for justice.
A story of 58,000+ words, "Curse of the Phantom Swordsman" is an easy reading adventure containing mild adult themes and language that's intended for the more mature.
Wandering lost in a remote upstate New York forest; twelve-year-olds Julian Carter and Steve Ross find a mysterious abandoned camper and unknowingly awaken an ancient and hungry evil.

Fast forward twenty years - once again, the children of Liberty, NY have begun disappearing.
