Series Synopsis

Welcome to the world of the Crovirs and the Bastians, two races of immortals who can survive up to sixteen deaths and once ruled an empire that stretched across Europe, Asia, and North Africa. Engaged in a bloody and savage war since the very dawn of their existence, it was not until the late fourteenth century that they reached an uneasy truce, following a deadly plague that wiped out more than half of their numbers and made the majority of survivors infertile.
Join a group of exceptional, modern-day immortals and humans as they embark on a series of fast-paced, action-packed, life-changing adventures that will uncover lost bonds and bring them to the conclusion of a journey that began many millennia ago, in a long forgotten time and place.

  1. Urban fantasy should have LOTS of action and little or no romance. That’s one of the primary differences between UF and paranormal romance. The romance should always, always be a far distant second to actual plot.
