One
Down the Demon Hole

Everyone had a favorite game. Mine involved slaying underling demons. And I was antsy, ready to start. Our trainer, a Dark Moth warrior by the name of Peter didn’t care. He kept going on and on in his monotone about the demon order in the Underworld. As though where we lived, deep below Wonderland, Arizona was any better. The worst part was we’d heard the same speech more at least a dozen times over the years. He needed to shut up already so I could slay me some demons.
“You know of the seven deadly sins?”
“Yes,” we all said in unison.
“Well not only are they scary stories told in Sunday School, they are also living, breathing demon royalty…”
Blah. Blah. Blah.
“The demons you’ll be fighting today are called underlings.” Peter pointed at the cage on the other side of the large instruction room. The cage had been fortified by troll magic. Every time a demon tried to slip between two of the metal bars, they were burned.
A hundred of the little buggers growled, gnashed their teeth, and threw themselves against the rods, making the air reek of burning demon hair and flesh. Not a pleasant scent when they already smelled like rotting eggs mixed with decaying corpse. They didn’t look much better, resembling sewer rats with leprosy. Their skin appeared to be peeling off and oozed snot-looking liquid.  
“They’re fast and tricky. Killing them is easy, if you can catch them. Don’t use your weapons unless you’re sure you have a clean shot. Otherwise you’ll wind up sticking the end of a blade into another trainee. Got it?” Peter gave me a direct look. “Alice, what did I just say?”
I forced myself not to roll my eyes. Peter was a great Dark Moth warrior, but his father had been a Pride demon, which meant he had an inordinately high opinion of himself.
“Be careful when using your weapons. The underlings are tricky.” My weapon of choice was a katana, but I also kept a small dagger in my right boot and a 9mm in a holster under my shirt.
“Very good.” Gray eyes that exactly matched the rest of the Dark Moth trainees studied me. I was an oddity in many ways, but the most prominent was my eye color, which was bright blue.
“Queen of Hearts,” the guy on my right whisper-coughed.
Everyone around him snickered.
“Quiet!” Peter’s angry voice boomed. Even the demons stopped chattering. “There will be no name calling. Use your energy and focus.” The tension in the room shot up. “This isn’t a game…” he began and then trailed off, a giant smile replacing his anger. “What am I saying? Of course it is.”

  • Genre: NA Reimagining of Alice In Wonderland 
BLOOD AND SNOW 10.1: THE DARK MOTH SOCIETY by RaShelle Workman ~ "There's more to life than training. There's love, Alice Blackburn. And you are in desperate need of it..." 
In the last millennia a deadly game has raged between demons and their half-human creations, called Moths. A century ago select Moths were born with distinctive marks on the backs of their hands. It was soon discovered that those with the marks possessed the same powers as their demon parent. Over the years an elite group of warriors formed The Dark Moth Society. 
Alice Blackburn is a Dark Moth trainee. Some of her classmates call her the Queen of Hearts, but only because she doesn't share hers. There isn't time. Not for fun and especially not for Kade Everett, the injured warrior she is required to help. In just a few days, her creator, the foul demon that killed her mom will come to kill her. That's part of the game after all. And when he does, she will end him. 



  • Genre: YA Adventure/Suspense 
KATE UNMASKED by Cindy M. Hogan ~ Some secrets should stay dead and buried. Kate has spent her life searching for the secrets of her past--the secrets that began with her missing birth parents. After years of false hope and leads drying up, Kate finally lucks onto a promising one. 
Determined to find the truth, Kate travels to the gritty New Jersey shore. But what she finds is worse than she ever could have imagined. 



  • Genre: YA Time Travel Romance 
COUNTER CLOCKWISE by Elle Strauss ~ High school senior Casey Donovan is in trouble. Again. If only she had trusted in Nate's loyalty when he traveled to Spain with his college basketball team - despite the accompaniment of the cheerleading squad and Fiona the Floozy who'd made it super clear she wanted Nate for herself. Then she wouldn't have made that impulsive trip to Hollywood and let Aiden do that stupid thing that threatened her relationship with Nate, and triggered a trip into the past. Only something is wildly wrong. She's not in the 1860s like she should be. It's 1929. And she didn't come alone. 


  • Genre: NA Suspense 
WITNESS (Witness, Book 1) by Christine Kersey ~ College student Courtney Hartford's worries are few. That is, until she witnesses a murder. And then recognizes the murderer. His warning not to tell, coupled with his threat against her life and the life of her mother, pushes her to make a difficult decision--tell the police the truth, or let the people who are threatening her control her life. 



  • Genre: YA Mystery 
PAXTON PRIVATE INVESTIGATIONS by Juli Alexander ~ Townsey Paxton loves to solve mysteries. It's in her blood. After her older brother leaves vet school to manage the agency and care for her, his sacrifices start to take their toll. With the aid of her diverse group of friends, Townsey decides to help. When she suspects one of the agency's clients is abusing his wife, she can't look the other way. She risks her safety to do what she knows is right, but things suddenly go terribly wrong.

OF ICE AND SNOW by Amber Argyle ~ A storm is raging, and not everyone will survive. 
The child of the clanchief, Otec is the middle son in an overflowing house. When he sees his faraway village under attack, he realizes it's time to become the leader he was never meant to be.



  • Genre: NA Urban Fantasy
THE SOUL'S AGENT by Wendy Knight ~ For as long as there have been people, there has been a fear of the dark. Mothers tell their children there isn't anything in the shadows that isn't there in the light.
They are wrong.
The reason humanity is afraid of the dark is because that's when demons come out to play. The ghosts that fight them can't come out until the sun goes down, either. And Soul's Agents, like Navi? They're just normal, boring people until the moon claims the sky.
And then they aren't. Death allows lost souls one last chance. Fight with the Agents against demons and darkness and evil and they won't spend eternity roasting on a spit. It seems like an easy enough choice, but apparently roasting is easy and requires little effort, and fighting, well... Fighting is hard. Twenty-two year old Navi is an Agent, and she is good at what she does. Her only distraction is the boy who broke her heart four years ago--especially when the demons she hunts start hunting him, and she's the only one who can keep him alive. What else do you need from her?
