Reduced to Dusk by Gabrielle Arrowsmith

The commander devastated the town of refugees and, to wound Sydney more deeply, seized her family. Crewe promised to help her rescue them, but paralyzing grief over his own loss has made him unreachable. With the other seeksmen feeling equally defeated-and the traitor still among them-Sydney is more alone in this fight than ever, but she will not give up. With relentless determination, she vows to do everything in her power to get her loved ones back. Sydney's chances for success are threatened as plans backfire and unforeseen obstacles arise. When her true tie to the commander is revealed, she loses the trust of the few allies she has left. The situation grows even graver when a terrible epidemic advances, and the responsibility to decide who will have a shot at surviving is placed in her uncertain hands. The suffering has to end, and only Sydney has the unique knowledge and connections to bring down the cruel leaders of the oppressive system. The time has come for the battle of her life-one that will claim many. Even if she survives, will her heart endure the choices she will be forced to make?

Free On All Platforms!



Sydney Harter has long awaited September 12th, 2033—her eighteenth birthday. She can finally apply for guardianship of her sister, who is her only family and entire world. She hopes they will be lawfully reunited, but is prepared to defy authority and risk everything to escape the captivity of Miles County so that they can be together.

Escaping will be difficult and dangerous. Citizens are bound to their county by sophisticated chip implants that deliver shocks to those who dare to cross the electric barrier. Sydney is very clever, but her trickery is limited against the all-seeing eyes of technology. Even if they were to survive the escape, disappearing into the forgotten forests and towns of the past seems an impossible task.

What Sydney doesn't know is that she is the particular interest of two opposing forces. With deceit, fear, and warfare surrounding her—can she trust the party that aims to help with her fight against the other? Can she open her heart to receive and return unexpected love? When her sister’s life becomes jeopardized, Sydney will have to weigh a new love against the only enduring love she has known. The cost could be deadly…

How will she choose?

Released From The Darkness (Concealed in the Shadows Book #2)



Two young seeksmen are dead, and Sydney blames herself. The only way to get her sister back from the county's clutches, while also preventing more death, was to offer her own life in exchange for Evvie's freedom.

She expected a dreadful end, but nothing like the prison in which she wakes. Agonizing county life is redefined in Neo-Necropolis, new city of the dead, which lies beneath the earth. Worse than being allegedly deceased, is the false identity Sydney is forced to assume where Evvie, Sheridan's captain, and Crewe never existed.

Sydney alone knows the magnitude of the county's evildoings inside, outside, and now below. At only eighteen, the responsibility to defend freedom falls solely on her tried and tested shoulders—a burden that requires desperate action when a catastrophic revelation upends the world as she knew it.

The people Sydney cares for are more vulnerable than ever. Though she's buried underground and monitored by county agents, she must escape this new captivity. Maybe it's time to fight fire with fire. Sydney has proven her courage in facing their weapons, but can she trigger her own?

BLOG TOUR: For the Heart of Dragons by Julie Wetzel


Crimson Tree Publishing presents: For the Heart of Dragons, the third installment in Julie Wetzel's Dragons of Eternity Series.


Disconnection is a very serious issue for dragons that can leave them stuck in one form or another, but it’s a condition that usually comes on slowly and rarely catches anyone by surprise. No one knows this better the Kara Rose, Eternity’s leading specialist in the treatment of this condition. So when the head of Eternity demands her presence for an emergency, she can’t imagine what he could want. She is, after all, only a therapist.

As a top mage with Eternity, Noah Dove has worked with dragons for most of his life, so he is used to their odd quirks and physical needs. When a dark beauty shows up to disrupt the king’s celebrations, he agrees to go with her to keep the peace. When Noah is unable to protect the woman from the group killing dragons, he’s left with her last request—to save her dragon. It would normally be an impossible task, but with a bit of magic and some help from the dragon, Noah forms the one thing that can transfer a dragon from one person to another—a Heart Stone.

Now the dragon is loose and out of control… and the only person who can help is Kara. With Noah’s consciousness locked away beyond her reach, she must somehow find a way to soothe the dragon and connect two halves that were never a whole. The task is daunting and will push her knowledge—and personal boundaries—to their limit and beyond.


Excerpt:


Kara watched as Byrd wiggled up the steps ahead of her. His butt bounced around in an odd way as he walked. Is he hurt? That slip on the steps hadn’t looked bad, but then again, it had taken a moment for him to get it together enough to get up the steps. The noise he was letting out sounded like he was in pain. Kara opened her mouth to say something, but her breath caught when the tortured noise took on a familiar rhythm. Is that… a beat?
Listening hard, she watched as his back end bounced to the beat of the song he was attempting to hum. He wasn’t hurt, he was dancing! Astounded, Kara followed him up the steps. In the short time she had known Byrd, he had done many odd things, but dancing just didn’t seem like something he would do.
Kara’s head rang as she hit upon an idea. Noah! Her surprise turned to elation. This is fantastic! She knew dragons who had taken years to work through their separation issues. For him to have found some kind of balance so quickly was remarkable, but she had to find a way to verify her assumption. That was the tricky part. Sometimes bringing up separation issues could actually regress a patient’s progress. She didn’t want to complicate his problems further. Kara mulled over the best way to assess him.
A chirp from the top of the steps drew her from her thoughts. “Come on?”
She looked up at the small dragon waiting at the top of the steps. He twitched and swayed in place as his claws rapped out a rhythm on the tile.
Sixth floor, right?”
Before she could answer, he hopped up and shoved his way through the door. That was definitely not Byrd! The dragon she was coming to know wouldn’t have waited. She caught the door and followed him into the room. The best way to find out what she needed to know was to engage him in some kind of conversation. “Byrd?” she called, drawing his attention from the view out the wall of glass and steel.
He turned and looked at her. The cock of his head held a question in it.
Kara!” Beth called out from her office.
Kara spun to face the woman before she could say anything to the dragon.
Beth bustled out with a handful of papers. “God, I’m glad you’re here this morning. Explain this!” She shook the stack.
Taking the papers from her, Kara glanced at the Eternity logo on top of the official-looking pages.
They’re orders,” Beth squeaked before Kara could get into the body of the text. “Honest-to-God orders. You’ve been reassigned!” Beth’s voice was filled with shock.
I know,” Kara said as she calmly read over the orders Daniel had sent.

Carissa Markel doesn’t know who this man chained to the wall is, but he’s her only chance for escape. She has power, but, born without a voice, she lacks the means to wield it. One choice, made in desperation, sends them running for their lives. Does she have the strength to help him clear his name?

For the Memory of Dragons (Dragons of Eternity Book 2)




 What do you do when a dragon crash-lands in your backyard?

That’s the question Terra’s faced with when one of these creatures plows down into her cornfield. Should she help out the hunk of a man the dragon turns into, or turn him over to the trigger-happy ‘authorities’ that have come looking for him? The deciding factor—he has no memory. Giving him up just doesn’t seem right… at least until she knows the truth of who he is.

Alex has forgotten a thing or two—his name being one of them—but he knows there is something important that he needs to remember, if he could just get his battered brain to work properly. A little rest might help, but there’s no time for that when the bullets start flying.

Now, he has to follow the few clues he has to discover who he is, and why people are trying to kill him. But that’s the easy part. The hard part will be keeping his hands off the lovely lady helping him.

When other dragons are sighted in the area, the town sends their maidens to their new lord for protection… and Patrick’s life becomes a lot more complicated.
