DOMINIONS (coming August 18)



Not all Gods are created equal . . .

Some are omniscient. Some omnipotent. Only one can forge a blade that can kill another god. And now that Albert Johansson has done it, all hell is breaking loose.

When the goddess of death killed the goddess of chaos, she hadn’t meant to wake every other god and godlet on earth and beyond, yet that’s exactly what Melissa el Hajj has done. Now every single one of them is hunting her, drawn by the demon knife she carries.

When gods die, worlds shatter. Kill too many and there will be nothing left. Mel’s blade is on a mission to kill them all, and anyone that stands in its way. Unfortunately for Mel and Al, it just might succeed. Now it's a race to unmake the blade before it destroys everything they love, including each other.

John Patterson thinks he damn well earned his pension. He survived more than twenty years as a police forensic wizard, tracking down and fighting the worst that criminal magic could throw at him. If he could only retire the nightmares, as well.

Some of those nightmares feature Albert Kratz, alias Albertus Magnus, a psychopathic criminal mage Patterson trapped in a burning building years ago. So why is a dead man leaving his unique magical signature on the grisly "artistic" murder of a diplomatic courier?

Detective Sergeant Nef Cash recognizes that crime scene from old file photos and drags Patterson out of retirement to fight a deadly enemy one more time. Cash has her own motives besides police work, and her move will turn his personal life inside out.

Eight years ago, Dennis Carlsson returned from Vietnam with a chest full of medals, a head full of nightmares, and a plastic foot. Now he just wants the world to leave him alone on his isolated point of Maine coast, caring for injured animals and living as simply as he can.

However, both real and spirit worlds have other plans for his guardian strength. His nightmares have followed him home in a face from those memories, wildlife biologist Susan Tranh — prickly as a porcupine and with some strange bond to eagles, stalked by criminals for no reason she can see.

Tied deep into land and lore, the Haskell Witches know a lot more about Ghost Point than he does. The Naskeag tribe calls his home Spirit Point, a place to meet spirits and find visions. They avoid the place because they know the spirit world is dangerous.

And winter has its own deadly agenda . . .

POWERS



Albert Johannson lives off the grid. He's forgotten more than he remembers about his past, but those snippets he's retained tell him two things: he's lived a long, looong time and he doesn't trust anyone, particularly gods. He's not any too fond of demons either, particularly the one that materializes in his kitchen wanting to hire him for a special mission. It's as deadly to cross a demon as to deal with him, so Albert reluctantly agrees to investigate, putting him in the path of a prickly arson detective named Melissa el Hajj with trust issues of her own. Clashing at a crime scene, they uncover a broken seal that seems ancient enough to have been forged by Solomon himself. The seal cries out to Albert that he must mend it or something dark and dire will happen. Albert, who has a special affinity for metal, must first discover exactly what that will do to his kind - and he's only just beginning to understand who and what he really is.

"Iron, blades, battle, and godlings with amnesia. I loved this book! A sterling new voice in contemporary fantasy." - Faith Hunter

"Take an unusual hero, throw him together with an unlikely ally, and send them on an unorthodox quest to a unique and fascinating world, and what do you get? Powers, a story of demons and gods, intrigue and magic, that's as original and readable as any book I've picked up in a long while." - David B. Coe

"Turns mythology -- and the world itself -- upside down and inside out." - Rob Thurman

"With a pair of protagonists who are much more than their eccentricities and a plot that contains both magic and mayhem, Burton has come up with a winner in the urban fantasy genre." - Library Journal

THE SUMMER COUNTRY

For twenty-eight years, Maureen Pierce led a fairly ordinary life, maybe a slightly tough one for a woman of her age, growing up on the wrong side of the poverty line in Naskeag Falls, Maine. But she did all right.

Then she met Brian Albion, and everything changed. If she can believe him - and Maureen has had some hard lessons in why you don't believe men - she carries a blood legacy that goes back to the old country. Only this is the really old country, the land of Mordred and Merlin, where deadly battles are still fought with magic, and a woman who carries the blood of the Old Ones is a prize to be desired - or a threat to be destroyed . . .

DRAGON'S BONES



Few things about Stonefort are exactly as they seem.

Stonefort, small fishing village and harbor and township and island, sits off the Maine coast, about as far Down East as you can get without passing through Canadian Customs. Only the Salt Hay Bridge connects it to the mainland and rest of the Boston States. If you held a vote, probably more than half of the residents would choose to blow up that bridge and all it implies.

Those residents are about as hard and abrasive as the granite under their boots or the weather that can kill even the most experienced sailors any day of the year. Descended from a peculiar alliance between Naskeag Indians and Welsh refugees from the fire and sword of Edward I of England, they hold a well-earned distrust of strangers and governments and laws, things that seem calculated to keep a man or woman from surviving on an unforgiving land and sea.

From jack-lighting a deer out of season up through running rum or dope under the noses of the Coast Guard, even outright piracy with cutlass and cannon or computer -- as long as you never foul your own nest, you do what you have to do. If Stonefort bothered with a town motto, it would be some Latin or Welsh version of "Getting By."

Getting by in Stonefort includes true magic lurking under the surface and in the shadows. Magic flows in the power of the hidden spring of the Haskell House, in the Stonefort granite and oaks and pines that speak through the hands of Rowley men and women who have crafted them for generations. The Haskell Witches and the Rowleys have carried the sword and scales of Stonefort justice for centuries. They are far more likely to protect their people with a strong right arm or magic than resort to law. It's more reliable and faster, more suited to a life in a harsh land than the indifferent fancies of far-off politicians.

In this latest installment in the Stonefort saga, Maine author James A. Hetley revisits the tough land when a logging camp becomes the center of illegal activity in this world and perhaps in another as well. Nurse and cop, both must face a special duty in the face of Dragon's Bones.
