As the heir to the Sea Throne, Delta knows her life will never be that of an ordinary undine. In a year’s time she’ll have her ascension ceremony—her four consorts will be chosen and she’ll be required to step up and take on the full responsibilities of Princess Heir.
For now, however, with the exception of a few boring meetings and official appearances, she’s free to have fun and party with her two best friends, Hurley and Loch. Sexy, fun and fiercely loyal, these two have been by Delta’s side for as long as she can remember; and if their brand of fun happens to involve escapades of the bedroom variety, well, what’s wrong with that? She’s not promised to anyone…yet.
Everything changes for Delta when an ancient and deadly monster invades the Sea Court, poisoning many of the undines, including the Queen.
With her mother living on borrowed time, a desperate Delta decides at once to leave the Sea Court and venture out in search of the only known cure for a cetus bite. Loch and Hurley don’t hesitate to go with her, but they are also joined by two rather less welcome companions: Wade, the smooth-talking ambassador with a smile that could melt the scales off any undine (with the exception of Delta, of course), and Tasman, Delta’s handsome but surly personal guard, who’s made it no secret he believes the princess is nothing more than a spoiled and selfish little girl.
But there is no room for personal grievances as they come up against enemies and obstacles in the treacherous waters beyond the Sea Court’s boundaries. Relationships will be tested, perceptions will change and secrets will be revealed. And Delta will come to realise that, just maybe, the Gods have chosen her consorts a year early.
The Darkest Deep is a standalone reverse harem fantasy romance that includes some coarse laanguage and sexual situations. It is suitable for readers 15+. It is part of the extended Midnight and Dawn universe.
Sachi Manning’s life used to be normal. Boring. Mundane. But that was before. Before the lilin. Before the reapers. Before that whole death and resurrection thing…
Now the conflict that has been building within The Shadowlands is reaching toward breaking point, and Sachi is right in the thick of it.
A new alliance.
Refusing to be cowed by the lilin’s latest attack, Sachi must decide whether to accept Griffin’s offer of an alliance, while the Praetor proves he will stop at nothing to reach his end game.
A new mystery.
With Mira lost in her obsession to find Nikko, Julian must pick up where she left off in the investigation of the Heme Centre. It is a task that will take him away from Melbourne and force him to confront aspects of his past he had long thought buried.
A new threat.
With The Faction asserting itself within the world of the Shadowlanders of New Orleans, Flynn will be forced to fight a battle between his conscience and his loyalty to his country as he starts to realise things are not quite as he’s been told.
In this heart-racing sequel to Out of the Shadows, Ashlee Nicole Bye has once again drawn readers into her fascinating world of magic, mayhem and monsters. With the same laugh-out-loud humour, loveable characters and page-turning adventure, Into the Dark is an absolute must-read for fans of the series.
From the streets of Melbourne to the bowels of Westminster, the delicate balance between life and death that is so painstakingly maintained by the reapers of The Order of Dark and Light is being tested by the return of an ancient threat. Tensions are rising within the hidden world of The Shadowlands and if this threat is not contained war will be inevitable. And the destruction of the human world is bound to follow in its wake.
Amidst this tension, eighteen year-old Sachi Manning is struggling to cope with the grief and guilt that has plagued her ever since her best friend was murdered six months earlier—that is, until she spots him seemingly alive and well and being held at scythe point by a hooded figure who looks more like a GQ model than the Grim Reaper.
Sachi shouldn’t be able to see through the glamours that shield Shadowlanders from the human world, so the reaper in question wants some answers. And so begins the craziest couple of weeks of Sachi’s life as she is drawn into a world of mysteries, magic, monsters, and mayhem, encountering dragons, faeries, soul-sucking demons, not-so-grim reapers, and even the Horseman of Death.
With a mix of heart, humour and hair-raising action, Out of the Shadows is the adventure of an afterlifetime, perfect for fans of Cassandra Clare and Paula Weston.
