DESCRIPTION:

Sherlock Holmes meets The X-Files in this acclaimed paranormal mystery series from the author of the Fourth Element Trilogy

It’s August 1888, just three weeks before Jack the Ripper will terrorize Whitechapel, and another murderer is stalking the streets of New York. His handiwork bears the hallmarks of a demonic possession–but amateur sleuth Harrison Fearing Pell is certain her quarry is a man of flesh and blood. And she hopes to make her reputation by solving the bizarre case before the man the press has dubbed Mr. Hyde strikes again.

From the squalor of the Five Points to the high-class gambling dens of the Tenderloin and the glittering mansions of Fifth Avenue, Harry follows the trail of a remorseless killer, uncovering a few embarrassing secrets of New York’s richest High Society families along the way. Are the murders a case of black magic–or simple blackmail? And will the trail lead closer to home than she ever imagined?

Praise for The Daemoniac

“While the clever mystery is reason enough to keep pages turning, the novel’s writing remains its greatest asset. Employing a tone that affects the style of Victorian literature and the Conan Doyle stories, but without the stiffness readers might associate with older fiction, the prose is a genuine delight. Furthermore, the characters conjure Holmes and Watson without belaboring the point or adopting a sense of smug superiority. Ross provides two endlessly charming sleuths, and Harry’s womanhood adds new depth to familiar ground. All in all, there’s an impressive amount of detail and care packed into these pages, not only in references to the Holmes canon, but also in inventive storytelling and colorful portraiture of 19th-century New York. An unexpected treat of a detective novel with a strong heroine, making Ross a name to look out for.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Harry and John are a most appealing pair…Frequent nods to the Sherlock Holmes canon and a blend of charm and darkness turned this first volume of a hopefully long-running series into a few hours of pure pleasure.” –Buried Under Books

“This mash-up of genres is amazing…Anyone who enjoys mysteries will appreciate this unique setting and intriguing setup. The characters are deep and the background is gripping.” –Desert Rose Reviews

“A truly gorgeous gothic mystery.” –Mama Reads Blog

“Greatly entertaining, fun, thrilling, at times chilling and with a light hint of romance. I have no word left to say, only ‘perfect’.” –Field of Bookish Dreams

“Absolutely fascinating and delightful! The Daemoniac kept me guessing with a great cast of characters, wonderful atmosphere, and a mystery that I was eager to have unraveled. Definitely looking forward to the next book!” –It Starts at Midnight

“The Daemoniac is a great read. Perfect for fans of the Jackaby series and of the Netflix TV show Penny Dreadful.” –Book Briefs

“Ross proved that the landscape of historical New York is just as magical as any fantasy setting.” –Crazy for YA

“An incredibly well written and developed story and one that will grab you from the very first page…This is a must read. That ending!!! Can’t wait to see where the author goes with it!!” –Book Lovers Life

DESCRIPTION:

The New York Times–bestselling author explores the occult history of WWII in this thriller inspired by true events during the Battle of Britain.

The year is 1940, and Great Britain’s forces struggle against the invincible Nazi war machine. France has fallen easily to Adolf Hitler’s army and England is next in his sights. A British secret agent pays the ultimate price to deliver early warning of the Führer’s secret plan to harness the awesome power of the occult to conquer Great Britain by launching a supernatural assault that no defending military force could possibly deflect.

British Intelligence operative Col. John “Gray” Graham of MI6 is not only a valuable player in the great game of wartime espionage, he is also a practitioner of the ancient occult arts. In this life–and other lives before–Gray’s destiny has been firmly intertwined with that of his close friend Prince William of the British royal family.

Now, with the future of Britain at stake, these two men, the spy and the royal, must rally the hidden adherents of the Old Religion, hoping to unite the British covens in defense of their endangered island homeland. But it will take more than combined Wiccan sorcery to repel the Reich’s black magic on Lammas Night–and the sacrifice required might be greater than imagined and truly terrible to endure.

Lammas Night is a spectacular feat of creative imagination from the author of the acclaimed Deryni fantasy series. Smart, affecting, and brilliantly conceived, it is an enthralling combination of historical fiction, war novel, and the occult that will appeal to fans of all fantastic literature.

DESCRIPTION:

“Somebody was yelling in the room now, one of the strange men, and her mother was screaming and screaming. But Button was only dimly aware of the sounds. Her consciousness had shrunk down to focus on the body that was blocking her hole–

–and the warm, thick liquid that was dripping onto her hand.”

Button is an 11 year old, bubbly and intelligent girl who is haunted in her dreams by a tapping sound…

Living with her mother and father in Cottsborough, Vermont, Button had been trained to hide and not ever answer to her secret name, ‘Rachel’.

One day, two men arrive at Button’s family home searching for her by this secret name.

Refusing to give Button up, things turn violent and the men shoot her father dead. Through a narrow crack in the floor boards, Button bears witness to the murder.

Eluding the two men who tried to catch her, Button uses her wits to navigate herself from Vermont to Boston and then to New York.

Button has a plan to find her uncle Dromkin.

When her search seems hopeless, Button is taken in by a resident of her uncle’s apartment building, Phil, who claims he can help.

But when they find Dromkin sprawled on the floor with his throat cut, Button is convinced she is somehow the cause of these family murders…

Will Phil be able to keep her identity hidden long enough for her to find out the truth?
