Fading Lights Prequel

The world is drowning in the darkness of the apocalypse.

Taxir sees hope in the eyes of a demon. Can he tame the beast and convince Diajik to save their world?

Or will he fail the most important seduction of his life and doom their world?

STEAMY M/M Seduction Dark Fantasy Short Story - Prequel to the Fading Lights Trilogy


Book One
Fading Lights Trilogy

Not even a demon can hide from the apocalypse.


All Diajik wants is peace in a world as dead and blackened as his soul.  So what if endless darkness threatens to devour his world?  That is none of his concern.  Famous as the world's most beautiful example of elven-kind, few know that is his truly a millennium-old demon who feeds on emotions.  He rules as Lord of the Kwaihir, the most powerful man in a world where all men are slaves.  Entire Houses are built and destroyed by his wealth and power.  Whoever owns him owns the world. 


When the darkness takes everything that he has worked for, Diajik’s plans for the future are shattered.  But the darkness should have known better than to cross a demon. Now all he has left are the nightmares of young men who possess the same forbidden world-magic as he does.  Only they have the power to save his dying world.  They are in danger, and he has the power to save them.


Will the promise of vengeance give him the strength to avert the death of his world?

Fading Lights Trilogy

Beauty is power in the barren wasteland of an apocalypse.


None is more beautiful than the young half-elf known as Bram.  He loves shiny things and his glorious savior, Diajik.  Together they live the decadent life of Kwaihir, pleasure slaves, the most valuable class of men.  Bram thought he had left his dark past and the apocalypse behind him for this new world of wealth and beauty that dazzles him.


Bram finds that he cannot hide his destiny under glamour and glitz anymore than he can hide his forbidden love for Diajik.  The demons from Bram’s past are not impressed with glitter or gems.  They know he is key to stopping the apocalypse and they will stop at nothing to destroy Bram and his terrifying magic.


When the darkness comes for them, will Bram be able to stall the apocalypse and save those he loves?

Book Three  
Fading Lights Trilogy


Durriken is meant to save the world. His god wants him to destroy it.

Durriken grew up with hard labor, starvation, and a zealot’s belief in the harsh but benevolent god Isfeth. Then he finds himself in a horrible predicament. His jealous half-sister has sold him into the most profane slavery imaginable: the pleasure slave class known as Kwaihir. Worse yet, the infamous Lord of the Kwaihir, Diajik, now owns Durriken.

His zealous mother raised him to believe Diajik is a demon and the sworn enemy of Durriken’s god Isfeth; it horrifies Durriken to find out she was right on both counts. The crazy demon also seems to think Durriken was born the chosen savior of the world and will be the one to help Diajik destroy Isfeth

Will Durriken sort out the truth from the lies in time to save his world from utter destruction?

As Ladykiller: he is a renowned assassin for The Shadowed Divide, the world’s elite assassin guild.

As Onyx: he is the devout protector of the only person in the world that matters to him, his younger brother Ruel. Ruel daydreams of being a knight and pursuing justice, quite the opposite of what the Divide looks for in an assassin. Onyx does his best to keep his brother close while not letting the dregs of their criminal environment destroy the good in Ruel.


With the Divide under attack, the brothers scatter. They discover that life outside the Divide’s protection is wrought with danger as well.  Will Onyx choose the life he enjoys as Ladykiller, or save his brother from a predator from the past?

Assassins of Dakaal

Book 3


The world knows him only as Niyx.


Raised among vampires, ghouls, zombies, and the rest of the undead horde, Niyx earned their respect and the title of Lord of the Dead. For seventeen years he has ruled his reclusive Night Creatures in the dark cursed forests outside of the Elven city of Aderaan.

Centuries ago a hesitant pact was made between the two people; the forest belongs to the Night Creatures and they will live in harmony as long as they Elves stay out.


There are two problems with Elves. They are near immortal and they do not forget. Though the great war between Elves and Night Creatures is centuries in the past the Elves have never forgotten their defeat. They want to reclaim their forest. To them, as long as the Night Creatures exist, they are a threat. The Templar Order of Aderaan has created a zealous new sect of Night Creature Hunters that exist solely to hunt their sworn enemies.


They have never met a Night Creature like Niyx. He is a fearsome monstrous killing machine with the power to control the undead and winter’s magic. When they cross him by destroying his forest home and scattering his people they awaken his wrath. With the help of his twin, Onyx, will he have his vengeance and be able to find a safe place for his fallen people to make a home?
