IN THE MAIL: NIGHTS OF VILLJAMUR & DEMONFIRE

I got a sword-wielding warrior and a demon in the mail this week :)

I would like to thank TOR for the review copy of Nights of Villjamur (Legends of the Red Sun) by Mark Charan Newton received.
Nights of Villjamur by Mark Charan Newton
Book 1 of the Legends Of The Red Sun

About Nights of Villjamur:
Beneath a dying red sun sits the proud and ancient city of Villjamur, capital of a mighty empire that now sits powerless against an encroaching ice age. As throngs of refugees gather outside the city gates, a fierce debate rages within the walls about the fate of these desperate souls. Then tragedy strikes—and the Emperor’s elder daughter, Jamur Rika, is summoned to serve as queen. Joined by her younger sister, Jamur Eir, the queen comes to sympathize with the hardships of the common people, thanks in part to her dashing teacher Randur Estevu, a man who is not what he seems.

Meanwhile, the grisly murder of a councillor draws the attention of Inspector Rumex Jeryd. Jeryd is a rumel, a species of nonhuman that can live for hundreds of years and shares the city with humans, birdlike garuda, and the eerie banshees whose forlorn cries herald death. Jeryd’s investigation will lead him into a web of corruption—and to an obscene conspiracy that threatens the lives of Rika and Eir, and the future of Villjamur itself.

But in the far north, where the drawn-out winter has already begun, an even greater threat appears, against which all the empire’s military and magical power may well prove useless—a threat from another world.

I would like to thank Sia McKye's Thoughts... Over Coffee for hosting a contest which made it possible for me to win Demonfire: The Demonslayers by Kate Douglas!

About Demonfire:
Newspaper reporter Eddy Marks thinks she knows everything about her quite hometown. She couldn t be more wrong. Turns out Evergreen, California, is the site of a vortex that allows demons to cross over to Earth, and the only one who can stop them is an unbelievably sexy fallen demon named Dax... who has just crashed into Eddy's life.
