The 19 Dragons

There are nineteen provinces in the Land held aloft by nineteen pillars. Above the earth there is sky, and nobody knows what goes below except the Nineteen Dragons.

That is all you need to know, but that is not all there is to be known.

The Device has been stolen and the godlike Dragons have been rendered mortal. Someone is murdering them one by one, and each death brings the world closer to its end. Unless the Device is somehow restored to its deceased owner, the Dragons are doomed to destruction--and the human world will go with them.

Excerpt:

The 19 Dragons was a steampunk novella I published shortly after Six Moon Summer (my very first SM Reine book). I took it out of print a year or two later because it didn't meet my quality standards (really poorly edited - sorry guys!) and because I decided not to continue publishing steampunk, so it didn't fit in with any of my other books.

It's unlikely that The 19 Dragons will ever be published again.

Monsters

A Bloody Love Story

Please note: Monsters was not part of the Descentverse. It is also out of print and no longer available.

Julieta’s never been quite right. She likes the company of corpses. She studied vampires in college. She dreams of darkness and cold metal and blood. She thinks that becoming engaged to Michael—beautiful, warm, godlike Michael—might be her salvation. But then he vanishes, and she buys a gun to take his place.

Alec is nothing like Michael. He assassinates vampires, and he shows Julieta how to be the perfect monster. It’s not love, but killing vampires together is almost better. When Julieta is taken by a coven of vampires, Alec is the only one who can save her, and what they face leaves them only one question: Who is the better monster?

MONSTERS: A BLOODY LOVE STORY is a 70-page paranormal thriller novella filled with action, a not-quite-romance, and gun-toting vampires.

Monsters was an old, old novella that I wrote as a teenager and decided to publish as SM Reine in an usual fit of ambition. I only kept it online for a couple months - when I reread it later, I realized it didn't meet my quality standards, and I removed it.

I really like this story and hope to one day expand it into a full length novel, which will also not suck as badly as this novella did. 😉 Sorry, I don't plan to make this version of Monsters available ever again.

Death’s Avatar

This was a novella-length story about the time James and Elise fought vedae som matis (Death's Hand) in Guatemala, which was the incident that made them decide to retire.

Death's Avatar was taken "out of print." It is no longer available as a standalone. Instead, the story was rolled into the second edition of Death's Hand. If you read Death's Hand after December 2012, then you have already read Death's Avatar.
