The God Catcher: Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep Buy on Amazon
When Tennora is expelled from school, her lifelong dream of becoming a wizard is shattered. Directionless and despondent, she figures her life cannot possibly get worse. But fate seems determined to prove her wrong when, driven by some misguided sense of charity, she takes a woman whose lot seems worse than her own under her wing. A woman who spent the morning screaming in the streets outside her apartment. A woman who claims to be a dragon stuck in human form. A woman who a bounty hunter claims is criminally insane.
Xorvintaal, the Great Game of the dragons, is not for amateurs. But Dareun, while young, is very clever. The older dragons are stuck in their ways and blinded by their assumptions, while he has found ways around the rules—both theirs and those of the magic intended to keep him out of the city that would make the perfect, most defensible lair: Waterdeep.
But then a blue dragon shows up in his territory, pilfers from Daerun’s seed horde, and is somehow immune to the magical wards that cause him such pain inside the city. He must have the secret of her immunity—and then drive her out of his territory. First, however, he has to find her. Luckily, he happens to know this blue dragon has a weakness: a young human woman named Tennora.
Reviews for The Godcatcher
“One of the best sword and sorcery novels I have read this year…will remain high on my list of recommended reads.” —Grasping for the Wind
“Extremely entertaining, The God Catcher was a great surprise for me. Evans‘ fluent style glues this book in the reader’s hands. With an action-packed story and vivid characters, it quickly becomes a page-turner.” –Speculative Book Review
“[The story] flowed wonderfully and it was fast paced and exciting. . . . Every subplot or side story all seemed natural and fitting. . . .I loved the characters. Everything was described well enough to give you an idea and it allowed for your imagination to create the rest. It’s as vivid and as abstract as you can get, all thanks to the descriptions.” –Read Between the Lines
“Under Evans’[s] pen, the city of Waterdeep really comes to life on the page; full of everything that a city needs to be a thriving home for a great story. . . . Evans proves to be a bit of a master at laying the seeds for one plot and then having it turn into something else when you’re not expecting it (even though it ends up looking like it was going that way the whole time).”—Graeme’s Fantasy Book Review
Brimstone Angels Buy on Amazon
It’s a simple thing.
Rejected at birth and raised in a village of tiefling misfits, Farideh expects a life without friends, love, or control over her destiny. Then she makes a pact with a devil named Lorcan, and everything changes.
You’ll have the power to do as you please.
Lorcan promises all she ever dreamed of and asks for nothing in return. Her twin sister Havilar urges Farideh to resist the devil’s sway. But Farideh’s not so sure. Lorcan may be dangerous but the power he offers is exhilarating.
Say you’re mine.
In the ruins of Neverwinter, Farideh’s doubts get tangled up in a devilish snare six layers deep. A succubus playing human pawns against an otherworldly foe sees the twins as obstacles in her path. And Lorcan’s monstrous sisters have their eyes on the city—and on Farideh. There’s no time to question her pact with Lorcan—it will take every ounce of Farideh’s newfound powers to get out of Neverwinter alive.
Reviews for Brimstone Angels
“The characters in Brimstone Angels are both compelling and believable, despite the fantastic nature of their stories. As the readers becomes more entrenched in the story, you begin to care more and more what will become of Farideh, her family, and even her devil.” —Brutal Gamer
“Evans is trying to do something different than just gussying up the same old fantasy tropes. Add in her plainspoken prose, which eschews flowery descriptions for raw emotion (and is perfect for action scenes), and the overall effect is highly enjoyable.” —Ed Grabianowski, i09.com and Robot Viking
“This novel is one of those comes-out-nowhere surprise-you stories. Evans writes clearly, excitingly, and with a depth of character often lacking in sword and sorcery style narratives.” —Grasping for the Wind
“This is an amazing book that cannot be missed. It’s nice to see that in the years since the release of the post-spellplague Faerûn that we are getting a high quality books beginning to reach the market, a quality of books that will hopefully elevate the vast amount of writing as a whole.” —42Webs
“Brimstone Angels can be summed up in one word: phenomenal.” —Read Between the Lines
Brimstone Angels:Lesser Evils Buy on Amazon
Mere weeks after escaping Neverwinter, Farideh’s dreams are still haunted by Lorcan, the cambion devil whose power fuels her own. One of only four known descendents of the original Brimstone Angel, Farideh has no regrets about the pact she made with the devil. But no one in the Hells knows that she has a twin—an impulsive eager sister, just waiting to be corrupted. At least as long as Lorcan can keep her secret.
Determined to protect her sister, Farideh searches for a ritual that could call Lorcan out of the Hells. But in the midst of her hunt, she’s drawn into an assignment for the secret society the Harpers, an assignment which leads her and a ragtag group of allies to an ancient Netherese library deep underground. While the group combs the site, dodging ghosts and magical traps, Farideh discovers a magical book whose pronouncements throw into question everything she thought she knew about herself and her sister. The more the Book gives up its macabre secrets, the more one thing becomes clear—a traitor lurks among them.
