Their story, and the loss of their mother to hunters, tugs at the hearts of the sisters. Elsabethe comforts them, but Adel becomes angry. She uses her magic to avenge the Kitsune against the humans who had hurt them. After tasting vengeance, she begins to desire dominion over man. In her lust for power she destroys the father of the Kitsune and curses his children. Adel is ultimately magically imprisoned by her sister in the forest nearby so that she can do no more harm. But, the seal is not eternal.

Unaware of her true identity, he comes face to face with the reality when Adel makes a terrible and triumphant return. Together, they must find a way to defeat her, saving Featherville and the whole world from the wrath of the Obsidian needle
Don't Look Down by Barbara Scott Emmett
Blinded by the beam of light, Lauren swiped at him but her outstretched arms were a fraction short of his face. The fingertips of her leather gauntlets brushed his cheeks, his nose, and he laughed without humour.
‘Lauren, Lauren.’ He screwed her collar tighter and she gagged as the zip bit into her throat. ‘How amusing it was. Watching you struggle up that icy path.’ Lifting the visor of her helmet with the rubber torch, he brought her face close to his. Torchlight glittered in his yellow eyes.
Animal, Lauren thought. Eyes like an animal. Except that was insulting to innocent creatures. Twisting away from the glare, she kicked out. Viktor chuckled at her efforts. He held her so her toe tips barely touched the ground and she jerked and danced like a corpse at the end of a rope.
We surveyed the purple walls and the king size bed with its leopard skin headboard and bed cover. A cat o'nine tails hung from the bedpost.
`Talk about coitus interruptus!' said the Bumble. He sat up in bed resplendent in a white singlet that needed the Daz doorstep challenge. I guess we were it. I threw a Marlboro to him then lit my own.
He stuck the cig in his mouth. `Got a light then?' he said, unabashed by our entrance.
`Sure,' I said and strolled over to the bed. I took out the can of lighter fluid and sprinkled it over the bedclothes covering his fat carcass.
`Hey! What the f*** are you doing?' He attempted to get out of the bed.
I pushed him back and struck a match. `Move, and your chestnuts get toasted,' I said. `You almost got me and your brother killed, you f***er! Switching the gold bars and loading the gun with blanks - that your idea of a laugh?'

I recently finished the first book in a series. It's called 'The Debt' and it will be part of a series I have called "Dust and Silence." I posted this description on another thread, but I'm a bit lazy this evening so instead of coming up with something else, I am going to abuse the copy/paste function:
Semias, crowned ruler of the war machine known as Felsland, is in the middle of a revolution. The voices have summoned him to his higher calling; he is not a mere man, but the voice of the Maker within the world. With the backing of the nobles and the country gripped in fear, the God-King pens the doctrine of the "One True Maker", claiming that the worship of the Sleeping Gods is punishable by death. He creates an army to act as the unwavering black-hand of the crown and church: an army wielding weapons fueled by a mysterious white powder. This powder is changing the world, one corpse at a time.
The story of Dust and Silence opens with an unlikely cast: an aging inventor, a street urchin, a captured officer, a heretical commander, a handful of mages that have never been outside their floating city, and a little demon spawned from the bowels of a mountain. They alone will learn the secrets surrounding the source of the white dust, and change the fate of a land that is trying to kill them with every step they take.
If you think this book might be for you, check it out on Amazon:

An incredibly crude and hilarious book entitled College Life: The Embarrassing Sexcapades Of Jimmy Forkson (has already received three 5 star reviews) and my other book is Horrific Happenings: A Dark Horror Anthology Vol. 1 (hasn't received any reviews as of yet :/ ) I understand these things take time lol but we shall see. Both books are only 0.99c so if anyone is interested in ridiculous comedy or disturbing short horror collections please give my writing a chance
Thanks for the offer to promote my book. Black Damask - a blend of supernatural and historical fiction - is free for two days.
At the age of ten, in the turbulent reign of Mary Tudor, Annabelle discovers a frigtening ability. In a fit of revenge, she prays to the Devil for the death of the Earl of Welton. The Earl dies and Annabelle, terrified, vows never to pray to the Devil again. Sadly, she does. And as the years pass, the consequences grow more disastrous ...
It’s not only a doctor’s medical school education, residency training, and launching into practice that’s so demanding, but what may be creeping into the professional’s personal life along the way.
Katherine Klein is a naive teenager with a contentious home life who marries despite her parents’ disapproval. As Katherine’s marriage progresses she reluctantly tolerates her husband’s boastful networking and meager contributions, and embarks on several careers before medical training.
After Katherine’s husband finally agrees to have children but doesn’t change his ways, her tolerance wanes, tension mounts, and the marital situation becomes explosive. Her husband refuses to leave the marital home and she is forced to flee with her children. While he is focused on threatening, harassing and stalking her, she is focused on providing unconditional love to her sons and maintaining competency as a physician.
But throughout Katherine’s unhappy marriage, she does not know that U.S. Family Courts can uphold discrepancy of income as an excuse to order an earning spouse to foot the other spouse’s legal bills both during and after a divorce. This makes the now fully-funded non-contributor unstoppable in his pursuit of continued litigation. Even more ominous is the reallocation of children and income by a “just legal system.”
This is an eye-opening, compelling memoir… one not to be overlooked.
