In the Age of Wizards, uncontrolled power could be her undoing...and an ancient prophecy is destined to come true. Her magic is untouched. When Sunnie Burke rushes home after the unexpected death of her father, she is determined to find the truth. Instead she discovers her mother has disappeared and her father may not be dead after all. An old family friend, Caleb O’Brien, offers to help her solve the mystery but he is not what he seems. He evades her questions leading Sunnie to suspect he’s hiding something. Desperate to lose him, she returns to her childhood home and discovers a portal in an antique steamer trunk leading her to the mystical realm of Faery…and an enchanted staff that unleashes the untapped magic inside her. His magic is corrupt. Caleb O’Brien has watched Sunnie Burke grow into adulthood and make a name for herself in Hollywood. But when the beautiful starlet returns home determined to find the truth about her parents, he’s desperate to keep her from the portal leading into Faery. Sunnie’s untapped Fae magic surfaces with wildness she cannot control, and when her sudden sifting leads her right to the portal in the trunk, Caleb has no choice but to follow her. He quickly discovers he can’t protect her from the dark magic in the enchanted staff, no more than he can control his own dark magic swirling inside him forcing him to face his cryptic past. Now in the land of Fae, the two are at the mercy of a cruel sorceress whose malevolent machinations threaten the lives of the only people Sunnie ever truly loved—her family. The longer her dark magic consumes her, the more it puts all their lives in peril and the more Sunnie’s true self dissolves. An ancient prophecy holds the key—only one person can break the spell and release her. Caleb is determined to find that person...even if it means sacrificing everything Sunnie holds dear.

In the last decade, reports of incest have exploded into the national consciousness. Magazines, talk shows, and mass market paperbacks have taken on the subject as many Americans, primarily women, have come forward with graphic memories of childhood abuse. Making Monsters examines the methods of therapists who treat patients for depression by working to draw out memories or, with the use of hypnosis, to encourage fantasies of childhood abuse the patients are told they have repressed. Since this therapy may leave the patient more depressed and alienated than before, questions are appropriately raised here about the ethics and efficacy of such treatment.

Sorcerers and wizards are not the only practitioners of the magical arts. Esoteric orders of arcane initiates push the boundaries of magic beyond the limits of tomes and blood. The Abbey of Green Steel trains monks that pack a magical punch, the Servants of Decay subvert civilization with dark rites, and The School Behind the Veil teaches warriors to use divination to best their opponents. Arcana: Societies of Magic details six different organizations that employ unique styles of magic to achieve their ends. The description of each society includes information of the group's history, goals, hierarchy, and leaders, as well as a map of its headquarters. New skills, feats, spells and prestige classes make it a complete package. Like Green Ronin's award-winning Freeport series, Arcana: Societies of Magic can be used in any fantasy campaign.

The Wizard Lord's duty is to keep the world in its delicate balance. He must govern lightly to protect his domain from power-hungry interlopers, such as certain wizards who previously fought to rule the world...But if the Wizard Lord himself strays from the way of the just, then it is up to the Chosen to intercede. The Chosen ones are the Leader, the Seer, the Swordsman, the Beauty, the Thief, the Scholar, the Archer, and the Speaker. Each are magically-infused mortal individuals who, for the term of their service, have only one function--to be available to remove an errant Wizard Lord, whether by persuasion or by stronger means. Breaker, a young man of ambition, has taken the mantle of Swordsman from its former bearer who wished to retire. Never did he realize that he would be called to duty so quickly, or that the balance of power in his world would be so precarious. He had a duty to perform. A world to save. So why does he still have doubts...not just about himself, but about the entire balance of power?

Magic and intrigue go hand in hand in Mairelon the Magician and The Magician's Ward, two fast-paced novels filled with mystery and romance, set against the intricate backdrop of Regency England. When a stranger offers her a small fortune to break into a traveling magician's wagon, Kim doesn't hesitate. Having grown up a waif in the dirty streets of London, Kim isn't above a bit of breaking-and-entering. A hard life and lean times have schooled her in one lesson: steal from them before they steal from you. But when the magician catches her in the act, Kim thinks she's done for. Until he suggests she become his apprentice; then the real trouble begins. Kim soon finds herself entangled with murderers, thieves, and cloak-and-dagger politics, all while trying to learn how to become both a proper lady and a magician in her own right.
