In the near future, the effects of a catastrophic solar flare have left the earth almost entirely submerged, with only the tops of the very tallest mountains remaining above water.
Moored to one of these peaks is a flotilla of ships and boats containing all of the planetâ€™s known survivors. One hundred and twenty-five souls remain, but not for longâ€”a mysterious infection is turning the air they breathe and the water they drink into deadly hazards.
Twelve volunteers have been sent out to look for helpâ€”or even any signs of lifeâ€”and none have returned. It now falls to Eva, a former cop, and Jim, the flotillaâ€™s elected leader, to keep the fragile peace among the inhabitants. Humanity is depending on them for its survivalâ€”together, can they find the answers in time?
A young woman accepts a position as nanny to the young daughter of a handsome, wealthy, and mysterious Chinese businessmanâ€”only to discover her new employer is really a godâ€¦and every foul demon in creation is out to destroy him! With a premise like that, fantasy aficionados and die-hard action lovers alike will no doubt be expecting something exceptionalâ€”and Australian author Kylie Chan delivers big time! White Tiger is the first book in Chanâ€™s breathtaking trilogy that ingeniously blends magic, martial arts, and urban fantasy with a healthy dollop of paranormal romance thrown in to sweeten the pot. Fans of Hong Kong kung fu movies and the novels of Lilith Saintcrow, Liz Williams, Karen Chance, Devon Monk, and Ilona Andrews will flip over White Tiger, Kylie Chanâ€™s remarkable non-stop martial arts supernatural adventure love story.
The Prince of Ravens
The Prince of Ravens has vanished.
Word spreads quickly from the Fortress of the Empress, through the dark streets of Lucien, and to the far corners of the Empire of Ages. The Children are summoned to the Fortress, and the people talk in muffled whispers, if they dare to talk at all, of secret plots and ancient prophecies. Some say the Prince was murdered, others that he was kidnapped; but underneath it all runs a darker word, one full of terrifying possibility:
Rumor begets rumor, and soon the whisper of truth is lost in the swirling winds of growing fear. For the Prince of Ravens is the prophesied Lord of Death, and on his shoulders rests the fate of the Empire.
