    Description:
    They've been coming here for thousands of years, using Earth as a sanctuary to escape threats from their own kind. Mankind knows them as angels, and one of them left a child upon her death to be raised as a human.

    Raea is now a high school senior, and her life as a human is about to end. The crystal shard she bears is not a pretty pendant; it's a collective of powerful entities who chose her as their Keeper, a protector of one of the four shards that power a machine capable of destroying whole worlds. Those who desire the Starfire's power have sent an agent to find her, but she's too busy evading a nosy reporter ready to exploit her secret and dating a hot new foreign student to notice. Nevermind learning what she really is.

    Only one person on Earth can help her, the last person she ever expected. But he's not from Earth. Life as a human would be so much easier.

    When Angels Cry

    Title: When Angels Cry (a Starfire Angels novella)
    Author: Melanie Nilles
    Publication Date: March 2010
    Format: Ebook
    Price: $1.99

    Description:
    Shartrael Padina is no ordinary Inari. Bound in a symbiosis to the entities of the Starfire crystal, she can access their energy for healing or hurting. That power is sought by the small but growing Shirat Empire seeking control of the homeworld. When the elite Shirukan soldiers attack, her mate is killed protecting her escape through a portal to Earth, where she can hide her wings and blend in with humans.


    But Earth is no joyride. After fighting off the Shirukan soldier who follows her, Padina ends up in the hospital. There she meets an immigration worker named Scott Dahlrich, who starts the process for her and her unborn child to become citizens of the U.S., unaware that they truly are aliens. Life is difficult on the primitive world, but in time, Scott's kindness eases the pain of losing her mate. Fighting the Shirukan determined to fulfill his mission to capture her and the Starfire is another matter; one in which she must weigh her duty to the Starfire against Scott's love.

    Paperback $27.99
    ISBN: 1450558593 / 978-1450558594

    Description:

    Three complete novels now in one volume!

    Darkness is unleashed.

    Demons awaken and feed on life. Packs of C'Lupuc--the abominable wolf-human servants of the Darklord--emerge from their hiding, ready to serve their master once more. The numbers of the Red Clan increase, and their master awakens.

    The Second Race cannot defeat them alone. Will the First Race return from their exile to fight side-by-side with the m'athźrred rī Lūmea, the descendants of those who pursued them from their once great cities?

    Only one can unite those who would serve the Light, but will Gilthiel be too late? As an infant, he has the power to change the hearts of men with a touch, but he is far from ready to battle dark forces.

    A world hangs in the balance, caught between two forces at war…

Thousands of years later, the servants of Darkness have returned and prepare to reawaken their master. The horses remain in hiding, except for one.

    Alo is a special stallion and his rider, Ayali, knows it; but when Alo insists on rescuing a strange man fallen in a dragon attack, no one understands the horse's purpose. Ayali's only clue is the magic she feels within the man. Over time, her abilities have weakened. Without magic, she cannot fulfill the expectations of her family and her tribe in becoming the next priestess. Ayali desires to gain that knowledge from the stranger, but with his memories gone, he can tell her nothing.

    To fulfill her destiny, Ayali must face a growing darkness within her before it consumes their world and destroys her life. Alo may hold the key to her redemption but will he reveal his secrets before it's too late?

    Description:

    Wanted by the Adepts of Te'Mea, protectors of humankind.
    Condemned by the demonlords, rulers of the world.
    Je'Rol is a cursed man in search of a dream—peace in his life.

    On a world where most half-bloods are executed at birth, Je'Rol has survived. The son of a demonlord and a human, Je'Rol bears the stigma of the blood rage, a killing instinct unleashed when he loses control of his emotions, and each time carries him closer to the edge of losing his humanity forever. Only one object can free him of the killer inside; but it is an object only of legend and one said to reign over all demons. Because of its power, he is not the only one who seeks it.

    With his life cut shorter by each blood rage, time is quickly running out for Je'Rol, but his search for freedom could mean the end of the world.
