This Week’s New Releases

Title: Into The Battlefield
Series: Chooser of the Slain Book 2
Release Date: 09/12/2022

Worrying about a one-way ticket to the closest psych ward wasn’t supposed to be a concern when Valerie Kearie changed jobs.

She traveled across the ocean, almost died on a routine assignment, and kicked ass…with the help of a Valkyrie spirit sent by Odin.

How could her life get any crazier?

Not a question she has time to ask when her company and her partner never slow down.

Viking Inc. and the Jarls need Valerie and Jacob to stay on the job. Valerie must juggle work and continuing to figure out her working relationship with the entity known as Reginlief.

The spirit won’t take her body over against her will, will it?

The Terrorists don’t know or care about Valerie and Jacob. For the partners to win, they have to figure out the game first and then the rules.

Which works for Valerie…until it’s time to toss out the rulebook and take matters into her own hands.

Can Valerie handle the changes going on inside her as her life spirals out of control? Can she help those who need a protector without divulging her secrets?

When the Chooser of the Slain is on the battlefield, everyone needs to keep their heads down.

Has Dante really learned his lesson? Or is he just making the same mistakes in new ways and putting his trust in those who will hurt him?

From the streets of Waypoint to the tower now floating in the sky, everything has led Kaylin to this moment.

The time has come. The Mountain calls and she will answer.

But Kaylin isn’t the only one who can hear the siren song.

An ancient enemy has bound itself to adversaries old and new. This malignant alliance has united to thwart Kaylin’s hopes and dreams.

The Mage over the Mountain has her work cut out for her. But this was always about more than the ambitions of one street urchin grown to magical prominence.

There is far more at stake than what lies within the Mountain.

This corner of a brutal world still bears the scars of the power that was provoked long ago. If Kaylin’s foes’ hubris isn’t checked, it may start a fire none can douse.

It’s time to gather her allies around her for one last push, one final roll of the dice.

The secrets of the Mountain will be delved and her enemies thwarted. Otherwise, everything she’s built and all that she cares about will burn.

Robin Cutler, President, LMBPN® Publishing, shares her thoughts on working with LMBPN for the last 18 months, what she’s been up to, the launch of the new Marlowe and Vane imprint, as well as a call for submissions.
