I’m thrilled to share the cover for the upcoming third novel in the Winter Solstice series with J.R. Rain, Catalyst!
Back home from Russia, Solstice Winters confronts a scarier problem than a lizard the size of a garbage truck: immortality.
She won’t exactly live forever, but ten thousand years isn’t much different. In the blink of an eye to her, everyone she loves will be gone. Being the only elf in the world is a lonely future, but at least she has her cat to talk to.
Good thing he talks back.
Solstice doesn’t have too long to mourn as someone thoughtfully sends a magical assassin to take her mind off the family she’ll eventually lose. She’s fairly certain the Ordo Sanguinem Aeternam didn’t summon it since they’re far too inept for elder magic. Before she can figure out where it came from, her friend Jade asks for help investigating a stolen mummy.
Upon discovering the mummy stole itself, she realizes New York is about to have a serious problem of the ancient kind if she doesn’t deal with it fast… and someone powerful still wants her dead.
Between an out-of-control mummy and a magical assassin, outliving her family is the least of Solstice’s worries.
I’m thrilled to announce the release of Containment, the second book in the Winter Solstice series. On #kindle now! – (Paperbacks coming soon)
Something big stirs in the murk of the Volga River, emerging at night to sow mayhem and death along the banks. Since Solstice Winters is already stranded at ground zero, she agrees to help, even though coping with giant lizards is far from her skill set as an intrepid reporter for a paranormal tabloid.
Yay for being the only elf in the world.
After narrowly escaping the Ordo Sanguinem Aeternam, she winds up sharing a flat halfway across the world from home with the enigmatic Cristiano, an agent of the secretive organization she may have obligated herself to join. He seems to know his way around the city, and he’s not bad on the eyes either.
Solstice soon realizes she’s tracking a beast the likes of which none of her father’s books have mentioned, a creature unique to Russia that her magic lacks the strength to kill. To make matters worse, the Federal Security Bureau sticks their noses into the mix.
While hunting the dangerous creature, she awakens a forgotten power in the depths of the river that has the potential to alter the course of human history―and not for the better.
Starting tomorrow (9/12/17), Convergence (Book 1 of the Winter Solstice series) will be on sale for .99!
From J.R. Rain, the international bestselling author of over seventy novels, and bestselling author Matthew S. Cox, comes their first co-written fantasy thriller, CONVERGENCE!
Solstice Winters has spent most of her life halfway between normal society and the world of her magical parents. However, when getting caught between two worlds becomes more than metaphorical, being able to summon light or open locks might not be enough.
Neither her love life nor her professional life are going anywhere in a hurry. Her boyfriend is successful and handsome, but she constantly has to compete with his job for affection. At thirty-two, she works as a photojournalist for The Spiritualist, a small paper dedicated to magic and the supernatural – that most people regard as a tabloid. Desperate for that ‘one break,’ she’ll do almost anything to get that big story and get into a ‘real’ media outlet.
Years of always not quite fitting in begin to make sense after an error at a particle physics laboratory alters the dimensional alignment of the world, strengthening magic and revealing an unexpected truth to Solstice.
She’s not even human.
In the wake of an event her boss at the paper is calling The Convergence, magical beings are appearing all over the Earth. Solstice doesn’t hesitate, racing to be the first to capture indisputable evidence of mythical beasts. Alas, being a magical creature herself, she soon winds up in the cross-hairs of not only a three-letter government agency, but an ancient sect of mages with dark intentions.
