It’s been quiet here at The Haven for a few years. Truth be told, we lost the password for the wordpress. Woops! Now that it’s back, we’re cleaning up and updating a few pages. We’ll also include new pages for the FOUR books and TWO short stories that Amelia published since our absence.

maeve3.jpegThe Maeve’ra takes place in the 1800s, between the Kiesha’ra series and the modern-day Den of Shadows stories. This detailed the fall of the vampire empire of Midnight, which you may remember mentioned in ‘Midnight Predator’. This is back when Jeshickah was still in charge and the shapeshifter nations were under her boot. It will take a never before attempted alliance of nearly all inhabitants of Nyeusigrube to take down the vampiress and her line of wicked trainers! It all starts with ‘Bloodwitch’ in 2014. That was followed up by ‘Bloodkin’ in 2015 and the finale ‘Bloodtraitor’ in 2016.

6142AgSr2gL._SL210_611PMhEAh2L._SL210_In between the Maeve’ra novels, we had the short stories ‘The Rebel’ (told from the perspective of Kadee, Bloodkin’s narrator) and ‘The Prophet’ (told from the perspective of Malachai, Bloodtraitor’s narrator). The third and final short story, ‘The Assassin’, was not published though Amelia hopes some day to bring it to her fans. Maybe self-publishing will be in the future! We don’t know whose perspective that one is told from, maybe Vance the narrator of Bloodwitch to tie it all together?

These were the last stories told in Nyeusigrube for a while. With everything that happened at the end of ‘Promises to Keep‘ in the modern day Den of Shadows series, even if Amelia returns to the vampires, witches, and shapeshifters of our time, they will hardly be recognizable!

D1Wnj-8mT6S._SL250_FMpng_.pngLast year, in 2016, Amelia began publishing outside of Young Adult paranormal for the first time since she started in 1999 with ‘In the Forests of the Night‘!! Can you believe it? Her first foray into adult gay fantasy-romance is the Mancer Trilogy set in the new universe of Castra, starting with last year’s ‘Of the Abyss’ and continuing with this year’s ‘Of the Divine’ which just came out this month. Next year, the trilogy will wrap up with ‘Of the Mortal Realm’.

Have you read any of these new novels and short stories? What were your favorite parts? Do you have new favorite characters? We would love to know!
