Title: Blood Hound
Author: James Osiris Baldwin
Blurb: Alexi Sokolsky is a Spook, a hitman and mage capable of killing with nothing but a word of power and the strength of his Will. But arcane ability comes with a price: The same powers that make Alexi indispensable to the Russian Mafia also make him a social outcast, an object of fear and superstition.
When a high-ranking Sicilian Mafioso is brutally murdered and dumped on Russian Mafia territory covered in Occult sigils, everyone blames the only mage they know – Alexi. Forced to play detective to clear his name, Alexi discovers that the gruesome sacrifice is only the beginning of a hunt that threatens Life as we know it. A Gift Horse – a mysterious creature rumored to carry the secrets of all creation in her flesh and blood – has landed in New York. Every underworld mage in the city is slavering over the limitless power she can provide, and in her desperation, she is calling to Alexi for help.
If Alexi heeds the Gift Horse’s call, he stands to lose his place in the Mafia and his life. If he doesn’t, the world will be held hostage by whoever finds her first – and given that a demon-summoning murderous psychopath is in pole position, the odds are not in the world’s favor.

Title: A Fair Fight
Author: Jeffrey Cook
Blurb: The faeries are preparing for a war throughout worlds. But before the fighting comes the talking.
May is approaching, but there’s no way Megan O’Reilly can focus on plans for graduation and beyond when the ancient monsters called the Fomoire are about to break out of their frozen lake. As the ice melts in the Spring air, a conference of magical beings from around the world is being called. Apparently there are a lot of risks involved in properly equipping this kind of party. There are so many places–Earth, different mystic realms, the collective unconscious, an outright netherworld–to go, people to see, and things to be done.
Megan is going to help. No matter how dangerous it gets.

Title: Street Fair
Author: Jeffrey Cook
Blurb: School is out for the summer, which will give Megan O’Reilly’s friends time to see that she really starts learning something useful. When music is magic and magic is sometimes medicine, it’s easy for a menehune BFF, a satyr rock star, and a disabled pixie with a service crow to give a girl information overload.
The weekend of the Fremont Solstice Fair is also the weekend of the Goblin Market. Megan’s adjusted enough to this Unseelie Princess thing to see some use in all this colorful shopping potential, both real-world and magical, even if she can get ahead of herself sometimes.
But someone wants to use the Market for his own destructive purposes. And he knows a guy who’s great at ruining other people’s Midsummer nights.

Title: Foul is Fair (Fair Folk Chronicles Book 1)
Author: Jeffrey Cook
Blurb: Lots of girls play Fairy Princess when they’re little. Megan O’Reilly had no idea the real thing was like playing chess, guitar, and hockey all at once. Megan had known for a long time that she wasn’t an entirely typical girl. But living with ADHD—and her mother’s obsessions—was a very different thing from finding out she wasn’t entirely human. Somewhere out there, in a completely different world, her father needs help. There’s a conflict, revolving around Faerie seasonal rituals, that could have consequences for humanity—and if Megan’s getting the terminology straight, it sounds like her family aren’t even supposed to be the good guys. As she’s further and further swept up in trying to save her father, Megan may be getting too good at not being human.
