Jaines Cord plans to kill the man who murdered her husband, even though killing a Bounty Hunter is said to be impossible. One bullet took away her livelihood, her home and her love. One bullet made by her. Fired from the gun she completed for the Arcane Bounty Hunter.
Obsidian wears the scars of disobeying the powerful Arcane Union. He barely escaped with his life and now lives quietly, in a town the lawmen forgot. When Jaines arrives asking too many questions, he's faced with a decision. Help her or run…again. Obsidian knows that if he flees he'll always be looking over his shoulder. His name is one of the first on the Bounty Hunter's death list.
Yet when Obsidian is offered an opportunity to stop the stone taking over his body in exchange for retrieving the gun, he asks Jaines for her help. Now Jaines must choose: a dead man's vengeance or a living man's hope?
"The unique Sci-Fi perspective Jess Anastasi lends to the age-old demons vs. angels conflict in Sanctuary and Severance is fresh and unique. She brings it out of the Divine Realm into the post-apocalyptic reality of the humans who survive End Time on a destroyed Earth. Although Severance doesn't quite rise to the overall excellence of Sanctuary, moments in this sequel echo the same emotional impact that made Sanctuary such a powerful read. Ms. Anastasi has that rare ability to draw a reader to the heart of a character's emotions and insecurities that so many authors wish they possessed. Her main characters are real, likeable, and easy to care about, and her sex scenes – better described as love scenes – are near poetry, they're so beautifully and eloquently written."
Half-werewolf, half-Aedh Risa Jones can enter the realm between life and death, and she can see the Reapers who collect the souls of the dead. Now, she is using her gifts—and the investigative know-how of a man who broke her heart—to find a cabal searching for the power to control time, reality, and fate. And this is besides her work for the Vampire Council, half of whom want her dead.
But for now the Council needs her alive. Someone is killing blood-whore addicted vampires, and Risa must find the guilty party. If she succeeds, she may finally convince the council to lift the execution order on her life. But before she succeeds, she must first survive…

“She’s a dancer, and the most important thing in her life right now is insuring the success of her new dance studio. He’s an alien Crystal Warrior with one big-ass curse hanging over him. In a moment of weakness she lets him seduce her. Now they’re magically bonded and his life is in her hands.”
"I loved the Goblin King, but man did I ever sob my heart out. It was just so touching there was no way I couldn't not cry. The characters were amazing, the story line brilliant, and the ending was beautiful.
Roan (the Goblin King) is just, simply put, amazing. He is one of those characters that I will probably never forget. (You know you all have favorites just like I do!) Eliza, our heroin, is pretty snazzy too. She needed help when she was younger, and there was Roan. Years later, all grown up, she still hasn't forgotten about him. And, when she needs help again, Roan comes to her aid.
I love story lines like this. The kind that are so emotional; the kind that makes you empathise completely because it seems like you are right there with them. The ones where the guy is always right there but all the while has his own wounds to heal.
I loved this book. And, the cover wasn't too harsh on the eyes either! ; ) "
