Alanea Alder - Kindred of Arkadia 5 - Fated Healing
Felix Kilpatrick survived years of hell in a mad Alpha’s cage and has finally made it to the safety of Arkadia.

No one is safe when people begin to fall ill. Can Felix and Claybourne discover a cure in time? And when they can’t, can they live with the deaths this virus will leave in its wake?Amy Lane - Bitter Moon Sags 1 - Trianes Son Rising

Or will Triane's Son grow to fight the forces that forged him?Amy Lane - Christmas Kitsch
