Essence of Magic, Book 1

What would you pay for a taste of magic?

My name is Ruby Guinevere Morgan. I’m half Fay, with healing powers and the ability to throw the occasional force field.

When I left my home town to study journalism, I made a promise to my mum to stay hidden from the Harvesters hunting for magical blood–like mine. My first week at university, and I’m already about to break my promise.

See, I tend to poke my nose into places where it doesn’t belong, and I can’t look away when the disappearance of a girl on campus is connected to the hottest drug on the market, MagX. The same drug that killed my dad.
My search for answers drags my new friends into the fray. And someone–or something–is watching me from the shadows.

Blood is about to be spilt and it might very well be mine.

Sentries of Camelot, Book 2

No place is safe from the Harvesters out for my blood

When a police officer suspects foul play in the force, and asks me to help him, I have every reason in the world to say no.

My studies are piling up, Harvesters are on my tail, and my guardian shadow is still lurking about. And the icing on the cake: my powers are taking on a life of their own.

I’m not nosy for nothing, however, so of course I’ll add shady detective work to my list of worries, taking the plunge into the terrifying unknown of the sentries of Camelot.

This may be my worst decision ever.

Virtues of Purity, Book 3

What’s the going rate for a 19-year old Fay at a blood auction?

I was supposed to charge my batteries back home for Christmas vacation. Delusional, I know. Out of nowhere, an Avalonian knight shows up on our doorstep to warn us about a dangerous fugitive they believe is after Mum. Something to do with her pure Morgana blood. Needless to say that any kind of relaxation went down the drain after that.

In the middle of it all, my best friend, Charlie, uncovers an underground market for PureX—a drug made from pure blooded Magicals. We can’t leave well enough alone, so of course we decide to dig deeper. What we find makes even my Magical blood freeze.

I’m about to discover how much my blood is worth, and the price of that knowledge might be more than I can handle.

Tears of Pestilence, Book 4

When tears turn scarlet, it’s only a matter of time.

My life is spinning out of control, and nothing is as I believed. While I am proud of Mum for what she is doing—creating a haven for injured and hunted Mags—I can’t face her, her secrets or her lies.
Instead, I bury myself in studies, writing for The Whisper, working at the cinema and adapting to my new relationship with Brendan.

The world is becoming increasingly dangerous for anyone with magic in their veins. So, when an epidemic threatens the whole Magical population, what can I say, all hell is about to break loose.


Again!

Knights of Avalon, Ruby Morgan Book 5

I never knew real darkness before now

My life has slowed down after the crazy events of last winter. I’ve taken some time away from Mum, my boyfriend, and Gabriel. I can’t believe I actually survived my first year at uni.

Just when I let my guard down, however, Duncan gets in trouble with a local crime lord. His life is at stake, and so, naturally, I place myself in the line of fire.

To top it all, ancient enemies lurk in the shadows. The only way I can defeat them is to surrender myself to the dark.

Is there still light where darkness consumes all?

Blood of Morgana, Book 6

What is dead in Aradria, doesn’t always stay dead.

The news of a dragon in Lycobris travels fast, and Kenith feels the pull of the dragon more than anyone. They share the same affinity for fire, though something about the connection is amiss.

Struggling to find a balance in his relationship with Niila, he must also find a way to become the king his people needs. First though, he has to befriend a mad dragon and take back his throne.

While Kenith struggles to come to terms with the path Mother Nature chose for him, there are other forces at play. Allegiances are shifting; friends turn to enemies. Some search for power or freedom, yet others seek revenge.

As myth turns to reality, Kenith returns to his homeland with a bounty on his head. He needs allies—and fast. Because something else that should have stayed locked away is about to break out of captivity, and it might already be too late to stop it.

Acolytes of Nimue, Book 7

WORLDS COLLIDE, AND I’M SMACK IN THE MIDDLE

I never imagined I would meet my grandparents. But here I am in a strange town full of Magicals. It’s as if stepping through a portal to another world. What starts as a family reunion turns out to be a nightmare. Figures.

The townspeople pray to Nimue, and when they celebrate Summer Solstice, it’s not the kind of celebration I expect. The truth makes my blood boil. Lucky I brought friends, right? Problem is, humans are not welcome in this town.

In the middle of it all, my grandmother is ill, and my granddad has an insane plan to save her life. And of course, he believes I hold the key to his success. Struggling to protect my friends and find a way to help my grandmother leads me on an unexpected treasure hunt. What I find makes my choice that much harder.

I HOLD THE KEY, BUT DOES IT UNLOCK THE DOOR TO SALVATION?

Son of Merlin, Book 8

Lady of Avalon: Part 2, Book 10
Harvester Academy, A Ruby Morgan Prequel novel

Once you are in, you are not allowed to leave.

My name is Dennis Rivers. Two years ago, my dad was killed by a Magical.

To avenge him, I decide to become a Harvester—like he was. It’s not like I can fill out an application, however, as the Harvester Academy isn’t even supposed to exist. 

I’m not about to let that stop me. I’m a street smart Liverpool lad, and when I capture a Mag right under the nose of a Harvester crew, I manage to get myself recruited anyway.

I wasn’t prepared for the ramifications of my choice. To become a Harvester recruit, I have to leave everything—and everyone—behind, including my mum and my girlfriend. There is no room for personal attachment anymore.

There is only the Academy.
