The Blood-Dimmed Tide – Michael R. Johnston
9781787583139-FTP01-1

Book 2 in 'The Remembrance War' series.

Reclaiming Earth from the Zhen was only the beginning.

For the first time in a thousand years, humans walk the world where their civilizations first arose. Settlements have become towns, swelling with new settlers fleeing the oppression and lies of the Empire. For the first time in a thousand years, the human race is free.

But freedom never comes without a price, and a year of rebuilding ends with the human homeworld pushed to the brink of collapse by a series of Zhen attacks. Tajen Hunt, the man who found Earth and uncovered the truth about the Zhen, is sent to the Kelvaki Assembly to ask for ships and pilots to bolster Earth’s defenses.

Between an assassination attempt on the Heir to the Assembly throne and the labyrinth of loyalties that is Kelvaki politics, it’s not an easy task. And it’s made impossible when the Zhen Empire seizes control of Earth and sets up a brutal Occupation.

Now Tajen and his team must return to Earth and find a way to end the Zhen occupation. But unlike the first Battle of Earth, the lines between friend and foe are no longer clear—because the Zhen have human agents among the people of Earth—and not all of them are known.

The Goblets Immortal – Beth Overmyer
9781787583627-FTP01-1

In a land where elves and goblins live on the fringes of society, there exists a rare magical kind: the Blest, the offspring of a cult and the product of the Goblets Immortal.

Aidan Ingledark possesses the magical gift of Summoning: he can make non-living objects appear and disappear at will, as well as Call them into his waiting hands or Repel them and thus force them away from himself. He has had the gift since he was ten, and that was when everything went wrong. Aidan believes he Dismissed his family and has since been unable to find them in Nothingness, a great pocket universe that lies between Existence and Death.

Now wanted for murders he did not commit, the Summoner is on the run from Lord Dewhurst, a usurper to his title and Aidan’s accuser. Dewhurst wants Aidan for unknown purposes…but then, so does the mage Meraude.

Meraude is reputed to hate all magical beings, but has sought to enlist Aidan’s help in finding and retrieving the Goblets Immortal. If he does her bidding, the mage has promised his family’s safe return. If he refuses, she has promised to seek him out and murder him. Her desire for the Goblets is an enigma, other than the promise of immortality that comes from drinking from all of the vessels.

To complicate matters, the unwanted responsibility of an ornery slave girl has been thrust upon Aidan’s shoulders. Slaíne hates Meraude with a fiery passion and wishes to be the one who ends the mage’s life. Her relationship with her new master is tenuous at best, and she claims to have had a curse laid upon her head that would prevent her from ever being free…but for one clause that she remains unwilling to disclose.

Is it wise for Aidan to seek the Goblets Immortal for Meraude’s unknown purposes? Friend and foe blur the magical lines, and Aidan must discern who will shake his hand or slit his throat before they have a chance to act. Magic kind might be depending on it.
