The Paladin Princess Series
by samaire provost
The first in the addictive, action-packed Paladin Princess series, The Pirates of Moonlit Bay features never-see-it-coming twists and razor-sharp dialogue. Charlotte has never been one to play by the rules. When kidnapped by pirates on a ship pulled by giant manta rays, she is fearless in facing her deadly adversaries. She must fight for her life against ruthless enemies and fantastic beasts, while being thrust into a world of supernatural alchemy.
According to legend, it holds the lost knowledge of all mankind. Charlotte wants it. Badly. She has her trusty troupe, a treasure map, and a worthy ship. But will that be enough? The map can’t even begin to hint at what awaits them as they descend a rocky staircase into the heart of a volcano ... Friendships will be tested. Lives will be on the line. They will face challenges even more deadly than the dreaded kraken. And they will face questions. Questions that go to the heart of their mission – and the core of their souls ...
Decaying corpses of powerful sirens float in the sea, forming a grisly trail toward the horror that killed them. Mermaids whisper about a new threat in the ocean, a menace that imperils all the denizens of the waters, from Swerighe, to Alkebulan, to all the undiscovered seas.
Charlotte and her troupe, searching for clues, hear whispers of a secret treasure that might be connected to the siren deaths. An aged merman who has traveled farther than any other, reveals to them the tale of a strange, strange land full of steep mountains, and dangerous creatures. Inside, ancient catacombs, concealed by a hideous shroud and an ancient poison, lies the lost treasure of El Dorado.
The land is dying. Great swaths of the northlands are growing warmer at an alarming rate. Wildlife is suffering. Monsters from the realm of fable and legend are being released from the glaciers, attacking villages. And something – SOMETHING has caused this. A great evil has emerged from the ice and lain this curse upon the land. Charlotte’s parents – the queen and prince consort of Swerighe – have been abducted, and the land is in an uproar. Only Charlotte and her troupe can save the day. But this evil is desperate to survive. It will stop at nothing to take what it wants. And it wants her baby..
Mad world Trilogy

The Black Plague is ancient history. It killed 100 million people nearly seven centuries ago, halfway around the world from the technologically advanced research center at Stanford University. Scientists there have recently begun examining samples of bone marrow from plague-infected corpses unearthed in Europe. All the necessary safeguards are in place. What could go wrong? Alyssa and Jake are away with their class on a highly anticipated year-end trip to Broadway with their senior acting class when all hell breaks loose at home. Traveling back, and trying to find their families, they encounter deadly results. Riots are breaking out. People are being evacuated. And they have no idea what's happening to their families.
The year is 2017, and the Black Plague infection has swept across most of the United States, leaving death and chaos in its wake. Martial law is the rule rather than the exception, with outbreaks cropping up when they're least expected. Alyssa and her friends must not only battle outbreaks of the disease, but also find themselves pursued by government agents – men and women determined to track them down at any cost. Fleeing north to the fabled Sanctuary, Alyssa, Jacob, DeAndre, Caitlyn, Risa and Luke face disturbing ordeals and terrible tragedy as they encounter unbelievable situations in their struggle to reach safety. Using their skills and wits in their fight to survive against ever worsening odds, they weather hardship, betrayal, and the ever-present specter of death as they flee north, all the while vowing to protect one another – and most of all their precious 5-year-old Luke, from a world gone mad.
With Alyssa near death, Luke, Jacob and their companions make a desperate attempt to reach Boston with the final ingredient needed for the plague antidote. They must travel through the Canadian wilderness, some of the roughest country in North America. Along the way they are joined by new friends and old as they fight to reach their destination and save Alyssa. What they don’t know is that something is hunting them. Something evil is lurking, waiting to strike when they least expect it. After years of fighting courageously against the living plague, they’d thought they knew their enemy. They’d believed their wits, bravery and strength would be enough to win this fight against the threat that had overrun so much of the world they once knew. But they were wrong. Now Luke, Risa, Jacob, DeAndre and Jonathan face their most dangerous trials yet as they battle the ever-present zombie threat, along with a new challenge they never saw coming.
