Blood Moon (Wildcat Wizard) (Volume 1)
Al K. Line
Best price for this book: $ 11.55
Meet Arthur "The Hat" Salzman. Gangster. Wizard. Screwed.
When I was killed for the fifth time, and before breakfast, I knew for sure I'd made a terrible mistake.
It was meant to be a simple job. Steal item, deliver said item to my posh broker, get paid. Easy peasy wizard squeezy.
Blame it on the insomnia, my own greed, or maybe just stupidity, but I swear on my wand I didn't know what was in the bag. If I had, I'd never have got involved.
Soon, every gangster, spook, and magic abuser in the city wanted what I had. But they went too far, broke the Code. Backed up by my faery godmother, and a Stepford mom who's main goal in life was to be my sidekick, the body count escalated as the truth was revealed. And they all forgot one important thing.
The Hat's a goddamn Wildcat Wizard!
Angel Eyes (Wildcat Wizard) (Volume 4)
Al K. Line
Best price for this book: $ 12.32
Vicky, my annoying sidekick, had gone slightly deranged, my daughter was off with the faeries, literally, and I was frazzled as my insomnia worsened.
But who could turn down a job when the payout was so great? Not this wizard.
The job was easy, some might say too easy, and that made me nervous. For good reason. Something was out there, and it really wanted what I'd taken.
The Hat lives by a Code though, and once he does a job he always delivers. As secret organizations do their best to thwart me, vampires use me as their plaything, and I stress about my life and my future, or lack of, I wonder whether I should call it a day and just go do some gardening.
Who am I kidding? I love this stuff, and I will not back down, even if God himself gets involved. Which he very well might.
Black Spark (Dark Magic Enforcer) (Volume 1)
Al K. Line
Best price for this book: $ 5
I watched in horror as dark magic sprang from my hand faster than an imp after your socks. I didn’t know my name, let alone that I had such power. The man was dead. I panicked. I ran.
How was I to know I was a dark magic enforcer, tasked with keeping magic hidden from the world? Yeah, total noob move, I know.
But my memory is returning, and the Hidden have given me twenty-four hours to make amends. Cover it up. Finish the job I was given, or else. Failure isn’t an option. Well, it is, but I like me, and I like being alive.
Time is running out as I battle to make things right and exact revenge on those that took so much from me. Easier said than done as I deal with angry mages, bitey zombies, oversexed imps, creepy necromancers, and grumpy trolls—and those are just my friends!—all while trying to stop myself falling in love with my best friend, Kate, who just so happens to be a hot vampire.
I’m Faz Pound, a.k.a. Black Spark, Dark Magic Enforcer, and time is running out.
At least I have my looks. For now.
Hidden Spark (Dark Magic Enforcer) (Volume 6)
Al K. Line
Best price for this book: $ 10.91
I'd had it with magic. Me and it were no longer friends.
This addict went cold turkey. Five years I'd been clean for, not even a taste of the good stuff. No longer a space cadet.
Life was quiet, life was good. Life was as boring as a conference on boring hosted by Professor Boring McBoring from Boringsville University. So, I have to admit, that when I got drawn back into the Hidden world I wasn't as reluctant as I made out.
What I wasn't expecting was having to deal with a dragon holding the dwarves' gold hostage, accidentally unleashing a maniac on the city, and fighting for my life as everything goes into free fall. Oh, plus I've got myself lumbered with a rather keen wizard-in-training.
Now I'm almost out of time, certainly out of luck, but I have responsibilities and I will fight until the bitter end. Problem being, the end is looking decidedly nasty, and a blast from our collective past threatens to leave the entire world a barren wasteland.
Hi, I'm Faz Pound, and once again you can call me Black Spark, Dark Magic Enforcer.
I'm also considering swearing off the magic again.
Faery Dust (Wildcat Wizard) (Volume 2)
Al K. Line
Best price for this book: $ 11.84
Okay, so an elf blasted his way into my kitchen and it resulted in me killing a man in the nastiest of ways, but that's an occupational hazard. Good news? I had a job, and it was a doozy.
It was time to go steal a magical belt, the infamous Ræth Næg. That wasn't the best part, though.
Yeah, that's right, I got to wear my ninja slippers .
But nothing was as it seemed, and elves were not to be trusted. Plus, there was the small issue of the million dollars. Oh, and the Hounds, and Vicky, who was doing my head in, and the vampires, and... You'll just have to read the damn book to find out the rest.
Hi, I'm Arthur "The Hat" Salzman. Gangster. Wizard. Screwed (again).
Evil Spark (Dark Magic Enforcer) (Volume 2)
Al K. Line
Best price for this book: $ 7.97
I'd had less than a week to recover from an incident that left me half-dead. My body was battered and bruised in ways I can't even begin to describe.
Dark magic use had consumed me, spat me out a husk of a man. I was little more than flesh and bone, weary to my very soul.
So, of course, there was a knock at the door.
My smile faded, happy face turning to tears, as Kate, a gorgeous vampire and the woman I lust over at every available opportunity, told me the news. Dark magic came to me as my eyes snapped to black and my tattoos felt fit to burst with the energy they channeled.
I'm Faz Pound, a.k.a. Black Spark, Dark Magic Enforcer, and a goddamn wizard!
I'll tear apart hell itself to get at anyone or anything that dares hurt the people I care about. Nobody messes with me or mine and lives. Nobody.
Things are about to get nasty.
Twisted Potions (Hidden Blood) (Volume 2)
Al K. Line
Best price for this book: $ 12.76
This was supposed to be simple. Make a nice dinner for the Chemist, a ghoul with a penchant for stand-up and utterly obsessed with all things alchemical, and fulfill my promise.
But it hasn't gone according to plan, and now corpses are littering the streets—although they're getting eaten pretty rapidly too. I'm not exactly in anyone's good graces either, as it's partly my fault, and my whole life is being turned upside down and inside out.
If that wasn't enough, my husband's still sick, and still a muppet, I think something has gone wonky inside me, and my past keeps coming back to haunt me.
Still, it's all in a day's work. It's just a shame this vampire enforcer doesn't actually get paid for all the good she does.
Orientation (The Commorancy) (Volume 1)
Al K. Line
Best price for this book: $ 11.37
Marcus was different - he became the most powerful man alive. A man able to bend reality to his will and peel back the layers of the complex world he found himself alone in.
His only true desire was to help safeguard mankind's future, so The Commorancy was constructed, a fabled safe haven for those lucky enough to get an invitation after passing his strict and convoluted entry requirements. But there are those out to ensure humanity is wiped from the planet entirely, led by a tattooed red man that will stop at nothing.
Three hundred years living a life that was never meant to be means that Marcus' grip on reality is becoming severely warped. When fifteen year old Letje finally gets her invitation she finds herself completely out of her depth. Haughty goats, an almost mythical man obsessed with changing his clothes at every available opportunity, and doors that go whoosh don't help her situation as the very future of mankind hangs in the balance.
With elements of fantasy, sci-fi and gothic otherworldliness The
Commorancy is an exciting new dystopian series that revels in the bizarre.
A vividly constructed world with engrossing characters transports you to a
future all too possible yet fantastical. Entertaining, thought provoking, and
odd - in a good way.
Vampire Enforcer (Hidden Blood) (Volume 1)
Al K. Line
Best price for this book: $ 13.02
The phone rang, and like a fool I answered. Mistake number one. Then I agreed to do a job for the Hidden Council. Definitely mistake number two.
Now I've lost count of my bad choices, same as I have the bodies, as they're piling up faster than a troll after free chalk.
As I get to grips with this new magic I've been gifted, the city remains under a spell of violence, and it's down to yours truly to deal with it. But I'm a noob at this job, ill-prepared and with my own personal demons to fight.
My hunger is taking hold as the vampire nature encroaches, the need to feed impossible to resist, and my inherited magic is so volatile it's practically splitting me apart. Nevertheless, blood is being spilled and heads are getting cracked, so I must be doing something right.
I'm Kate. First Vampire Enforcer. I think I might actually be good at this.

Guess what? I got married!
One dark magic enforcer and his hot vampire wife are swapping the madness of this Hidden life for a week's honeymoon in Paris.

What could possibly go wrong?
