The year is 862 AD. Vikings are marauding across the kingdom of Northumbria; raping, pillaging, destroying all in their path. The towns and villages of the kingdom are panic-stricken, watching the surrounding hillsides for the flames of destruction that mean only one thing: they are coming.<br /><br />In a nunnery in Colodesburg, Aeva is waiting. She is to be a rich man's bride. But then something happens to save her from her fate: the Vikings arrive. Before they can break into the nunnery, the Abbess forces Aeva down a secret tunnel. She emerges in the countryside, hidden by the dark, where she must watch the flames dance up into the sky and listen to the screams of everyone she loves.<br /><br />Wulfram, Aelric and Iden are soldiers bound for Babbanburth, armed with an urgent message for the King. They do not have time to care for the starving scrap of a girl they catch attempting to steal their meal, but still, after staring down into her terrified eyes, her tear-stained face, they cannot leave her. <br /><br />Taken under the wing of the three fierce and deadly soldiers, Aeva is drawn into the tumult of war as the Vikings continue their invasion of Northumbria. Surrounded by so much danger she'll have to carefully guard her life... and her heart.

Tempeste has survived much choosing to live on Paris’ streets–scavenging for food, learning survival skills from a deserter whom she paid to attack her in her sleep, and living a life her mother would approve of, one devoid of luxury. But denying oneself of food and proper bedding can stir a madness in the brain. So, when Tempeste witnesses the quick and painless death of the guillotine–the death her mother should have received–she vows to find her mother’s accuser and vivisect his spleen.<br /><br />Quite by accident, Gabriel, the young executioner responsible for Tempeste’s mother’s botched hanging, falls for Tempeste. So, instead of strolling arm-in-arm with a respectable mademoiselle through the gardens of the Palais de l’Égalité, Gabriel finds himself traipsing after an axe-carrying siren through the catacombs and facing off a hostile sans-culottes army.<br /><br />With little choice but to fight, Gabriel determines to win the hearts of the sans-culottes, while Tempeste proves she’s quite adept at swinging the blade. When the pair finally make their way to Tempeste’s sworn enemy, though, a secret is revealed which promises to sever far more than they ever hoped to gain.

“I am a fraud. My title, my power, my very name are not my own. How I came to be the most damned of men is set down here as my final confession. In these pages I will tell how I broke bread with Vampires and shared their friendship. In my confession I hope to explain the Great London Fire of 1666, the proliferation of plague deaths in the city, and how I came to murder an Archduke.” An excerpt of the manuscript discovered in 1967 within the false bottom of a rotten sea chest belonging to a Captain C. Johnson.<br /><br />In the year of our lord 1658, the Albatross was lost with all hands during a hurricane. Stories from merchant sailors describing a shadowy pirate vessel that preyed upon the ill-advised and unlucky have never been confirmed. But in this extraordinary manuscript we have the first proof of its existence, if we are to believe the adventures written by a Tom Hawkins, known to the world as the Marquis de Maintenon.<br /><br />The Marquis Papers detail the exploits of a young boy who finds himself enmeshed in the horrors of 17th century Caribbean society still troubled by creatures we now relegate to fantasy. While he considers himself a failure, he does enlighten us as to the true nature of a number of assassinations and troubling events in the Caribbean. <br /><br />In Arctic Refuge, Tom Hawkins relates his transformation from a cabin boy to vampires to a nobleman. He tells of assassinations and plots within plots at the French court. Tom's nobility brings him love in the shape of a young lady so far above his station that he dared not look her in the face. <br /><br />Through it all, Tom maintains his dedication to his own possible salvation even after he has been involved in more villainy than most men dream of. <br /><br />As we move farther into the story, the events detailed are supported by existing historical accounts, though through Tom's eyes the reasons for the battles and fires turns what we know of the world upside down. But Tom's explanations do bring new light to otherwise odd or strange occurrences in the court of Louis XIV. If true, the world owes Tom a debt of gratitude.

World War II has just ended. Revenge is in the air. All across France accusations are flying. Paris has decided to appoint one person in each town to investigate allegations and make life-and-death judgments. In eleven-year-old Lily Page’s small town of Sainte-Therese-Sur-Seine the hunt has begun for Nazi collaborators. Their fate rests in the hands of one man, Pascal Monette, the town lawyer, Lily’s neighbor, and the father of her best friend Albert. <br /> <br />Nicknamed the Pen because of the power granted him by the central government, Pascal Monette has been empowered to sign death warrants for those he deems guilty of collaboration. Who is the first in his sights? It’s Lily’s older sister Beatrice, who stepped out with a German soldier during the war. But did Beatrice do something much worse than that? And if she did, can any power on earth save her? Lily will try … but can anyone stop the Pen from signing?<br /> <br />In a France hungry for revenge, the fate of Lily Page’s beautiful sister Beatrice rests squarely on Lily’s shoulders.<br /><br />***<br />Eric Maisel is the author of 50 works of fiction and nonfiction. His nonfiction includes Overcoming Your Difficult Family, The Future of Mental Health, Coaching the Artist Within, and The Van Gogh Blues. His novels include Murder in Berlin, The Blackbirds of Mulhouse, Aster Lynn, and Settled. He writes the "Rethinking Mental Health" blog for Psychology Today, the "Coaching the Artist Within" column for Professional Artist Magazine, and leads workshops internationally in locations like New York, London, Prague, Rome, Berlin and Paris.<br /><br />***<br /><br />Publisher’s Reviews<br /><br />“The Pen is so suspenseful I literally could not put it down until I'd finished it. We hear so much about ‘the me generation’ of young adults who care only about themselves.  In The Pen we have a teenage girl who is totally focused on saving her sister.  We experience her fears, her frustrations, and her determination through many exciting twists and turns.  Just as I thought the book would end, a new development occurred and I was glued to the page, anxious to know what would happen to Lilly, her sister Beatrice, her best friend Albert, and the scoundrel Leon. The Pen is an excellent read!”—Marj Penley
