Oddities


The freaks and odd cousins, disassociated from the rest in that they belong to no series in particular, but stand alone in their curious corners...waiting.

Masque of Shadow: A Dark Fairy Tale

     Heartbroken over the premature death of her young sister, Estelle conceives a dark plan to recover Lunette's innocent soul from the thief she witnessed taking it. The price is higher than she anticipated, reaching far beyond the loss of her own innocence when she enters voluntarily into the realm of the Lord of Shadows, into a theater of madness constructed by the souls of the dead. 





Some secrets are better left forgotten... 

Drayden Torvannes has made a career out of uncovering secrets of the past. When he receives a peculiar summons to one of the more elite houses in the city of Vindra, he is prepared to take on a new research assignment for a modest fee and more experience to his career. He is not prepared for the proposition offered to him by Elarien Fannael, a compelling young man whose past has been left to him in fragments that begin with a ring, a family heirloom carrying memories and truth. Elarien is willing to pay a prince's fortune for answers. All Drayden has to do is uncover them, but can he against the disapproval and secrecy of the Fannael family, and against obstacles and adversaries that continue to grow as his research brings him to the nearby and haunted town of Raventide? Enshrouded in the mystery of a famous and grisly murder, the town promises not only answers, but danger for Drayden as he sinks further into a well of conspiracy, betrayal, and madness. Not only his livelihood, but his life become a running goal that he must chase through the elevated tiers of Vindran society, into its cavernous underbelly, and through the mystery of the town in its shadow as he races against time to uncover the most dangerous secret of his career.

New Logo

A lot of redesigning and relaunching is happening at Raventide Books, as we enter into our fifth year of publishing. It was time for an emblem that encapsulated the bright and dark of what I write, or more specifically, the brightly dark dreamscapes that I visit, via entities of equally mottled emotions and psyches. Of course, the raven had to be included, and now, finally, the unicorn(a symbol of tremendous emotional and spiritual significance for me) has been incorporated.

Look for the new design on all Raventide books, including the forthcoming relaunch of the Blood Wars Trilogy, the ongoing Dryth Chronicles, and all else under the Raventide banner.

Han Quan’s dragon has been put to rest.  The Empire beholds a moment of peace, a brief hour of victory, though at great cost.  
The Imperial City has suffered significant damage from the dragon’s assault, the turmoil between the Five Kingdoms has escalated in the face of a continuing rise of dark forces now attributed as a curse upon the Song Dynasty, and Han Quan himself remains at large.  Pursuit of the geomancer uncovers secrets connected to the persisting influence of the late Scholar General, and to the School of the Seven Mystics itself. 
While the Phoenix continues to rise through Xu Liang, the dragons of the mortal plane begin to awaken.  And as the southern kingdoms unite and rise against Xu Liang and his barbarian allies, the people of Ji continue to look to their ‘Silent Emperor’, some believing that he is favored by the gods, even above the Empress herself. 
With Ying threatening to turn away from the Mandate and Du…
