Tonight, I Burn
Gothic high fantasy with positive LGBTQ+ representation, bi-sexual romance, witches, and sister-bonds.
There are two rules in Death: walk alone, and never look back.
Death-walking thorn witch, Penny Albright, never wanted to burn at the stake, but in the Colligerate of Hallastatt ruled by the tyrant High Warden, witches’ wants are of little consequence. When her sister, Ella, vanishes on a standard patrol in Death, Penny breaks the first rule to follow. Finding Ella imprisoned by the devastatingly dangerous Lord Malin in a manor that shouldn’t exist, Penny bargains her own soul to save her. Bound in a magical contract to bring Malin intel on the Warden's court, Penny must cross the veil undetected each night for thirty nights. But a desperate mistake draws the Warden's attention and, imprisoned beside Alice, a mystical oracle, Penny is plunged into the Resistance's plans to bring the Patriarchy to its knees.
Feminist reimagining of ancient Greek mythology with positive LGBTQ+ representation and sapphic romance.
Deposited as an infant at the gold-cloven feet of Pan, God of Wild Things, Echo is blessed with a idyllic childhood. She's raised by nymphs and sheltered from the Titanomachy in Pan's valley. But when Zeus forms his Pantheon in the aftermath, Echo is summoned to Mount Olympus to attend. There, a lifelong friendship sparks with Persephone, Arke, and Iris, and on her return, Pan's magical valley seems more a cage than a sanctuary. Aided by Arke, the chained Titan Goddess of Wildfire, Echo uncovers Pan's intentions to topple Zeus from his throne. Plans which will lock the door on Echo's gilded cage for eternity. On the night of her eighteenth birthday, Echo flees to Olympus, setting her on a path rich with romance in Arke's arms, political intrigue in Zeus's court, and danger in the depths of Hade's Underworld.
