Series: House Phoenix: Book Two
Book Blurb: One man. Two worlds. No options.
Shiro Kuroda is a man torn between two worlds - born and raised in traditional Japan, he's now a fighter and assassin embroiled in New York's underground street fighting scene. After he accidentally kills an opponent in the ring, breaking the one rule of the organization, his employer’s retribution is swift: he must assassinate a deadly rival to the Harada clan, or take his own life in shame if he fails.
However, the people he has trusted over the years are not who they seem to be. A secret from Shiro’s past assures that no matter what the outcome of his mission, he will lose - whether he must commit ritual suicide, or watch those closest to him die.
A Reaper's Tale
Author: Adam Slade
Even Grim Reapers have bad days on the job.
Mal has managed to stay out of the afterlife for 31 years, despite having been dead for the last three. He's a Grim Reaper, and while he may not be the most enthusiastic, he enjoys his "life" too much to give it up to death. But he's got a problem. A troubled young woman's soul becomes bonded to his, and a vicious demon is hired to retrieve it.
If Mal can't get her soul free in a hurry, he's doomed to share her destination, whether it be heaven or hell.
