CIA agent Asahi Tanaka grew up hearing tales from his grandfather about a mysterious realm where magic and monsters are real. His quest for answers takes him back to Yachats, Oregon, his childhood home. His personal investigation of a series of disappearances leads to a break in the case, and he finds himself in a strange but eerily familiar world.

Nali, Empress of the Monsters, will do anything to protect the creatures under her care. When one of her fabled Sea Stags washes ashore grievously injured, she knows that the last of the alien organisms that came to her world has made it to her kingdom. Her search for the alien leads to an unexpected discovery—another visitor, this one from Earth!

A perilous journey to find the malevolent alien takes Nali and Asahi across the Isle of the Monsters, leading them to a discovery that changes their perceptions and makes them reexamine their place in the universe. Will the magic that sparks between these two warriors from different worlds be enough to destroy the threat, or will one have to be sacrificed to save not only the Seven Kingdoms but Earth as well?

Internationally acclaimed S.E. Smith presents a new action-packed story full of adventure and romance. Brimming with her signature humor, vivid scenes, and beloved characters, this book is sure to be another fan favorite!

Teaser/Excerpt:

​Asahi roused suddenly from unconsciousness. He frowned when he saw a canopy of unfamiliar trees above him, not the expected Oregon sky. He curled his fingers, noting that instead of beach sand, he touched soft moss. Bright, alien colors filled his field of vision.

He slowly analyzed the surrounding area before he forced his body to move. Asahi quickly discovered sitting up wasn’t easy with the world spinning around him. He tilted forward and rested his forehead on his knees as black dots swam through his vision.

He focused on his breathing, taking deep breaths and releasing them. Once he was confident that he wouldn’t pass out, he lifted his head and looked around the area. It didn’t take him long to confirm his suspicion that he was no longer on the beach in Yachats State Park—or on Earth.

“Ruth,” he softly called.

He pushed up off the ground, staggering when a wave of dizziness hit him again. He bent forward, resting his hands on his thighs, and waited for his surroundings to cease spinning. It took several minutes of deep breathing before he was steady enough to stand upright.

The spell had worked. He stood in a forest now. Tall trees, many the size of Redwoods and Sequoias back on Earth, were towering over him. Unlike the trees back home, these had long spiraling branches with dark blood-red leaves that grew upward and branched out in huge sections. Their darker red trunks looked like dozens of smaller trees had twined around each other as they grew. The overall effect was breathtaking—and definitely alien.

He had made it to the world of the Seven Kingdoms. However, it seemed that Ruth was not with him. Magna, a former Seven Kingdoms’ resident, had given the spell to Ruth, and she had been the one to invoke it, but it was undeniable that Asahi stood here alone.

Blurb:

Tonya Maitland learned early that life could either be an adventure or a tragedy. She left the tragic part of her life behind a long time ago and now focuses on the adventure. Her attempt to be one of the best investigative reporters of all time is taking a bit longer than she had planned, but all of that changes when she travels to the small, sleepy town of Yachats, Oregon.

Ashure Waves, King of the Pirates, is also the Keeper of Lost Souls. Despite all the souls within him, the emptiness he feels is suffocating. The ‘gift’ that was passed down to him feels more like a curse. When a drunken wish upon a magic mirror shows him what his heart truly desires, he is both torn and determined to find the woman revealed in the mirror—even if it means leaving the realm of the Seven Kingdoms.

Tonya’s keen eyes discern far more about Ashure than he intended, and he fears the consequences could be dire. When the Pirate King gets close to this street-smart, strong-willed investigative reporter, hilarity ensues! Will Ashure be able to protect Tonya from becoming another lost soul, or will he have to abandon what his heart truly desires in order to save her from himself?

Ross Galloway is ready for a new life away from Yachats, Oregon. All he needs for his plans to fall into place is a little money and a lot of luck. He gets his break when he discovers something out of this world on one of his dives – a real live mermaid. His plans to cash in on his discovery don’t work out quite the way he plans when Magna, the woman he recognizes as his mermaid, gives him an unexpected gift — a magic shell. Swept overboard by the spell contained within the shell, he surfaces in a strange, bizarre world.

Princess Gem LaBreeze is an Elemental, a powerful species that can control the elements around them. Transformed to stone to protect her from the evil threatening the Isle of the Elementals, she is awakened by a man from another world — a stranger who is as arrogant and uncouth as he is unpredictable.

Gem and Ross, forced together in a desperate race against time, learn that opposites can attract and that sometimes the roughest surface hides the tenderest of hearts. Can an unlikely hero and a lone woman survive the traps created to stop the Sea Witch before the new moon or will the Isle of Elementals fall back to the ocean below and disappear beneath the waves?

Excerpt:

Twenty minutes later, Ross was cussing up a storm again, this time very loudly. He was hot, unbearably thirsty, and his thighs and calves were killing him. This cliff was like a Stairmaster from hell. He looked up and released a long wheezing hiss. A low groan slipped from him when he realized he was only about half way up and still had a long way to go before he reached the top.

Maybe I’ll be lucky and there will be a water fountain at the top of the cliff; or better yet, a beer kiosk, he thought with a bitter sigh of frustration.
Turning and pressing his back against the rough rock, he gazed out at the ocean again. His eyes widened in trepidation, and he forgot about everything when he suddenly realized that he really wasn’t on Earth – at least not any Earth that he recognized. The evidence was so overwhelming he could barely speak.
“Aw hell, Ross. You really are in deep shit this time. The question is – how deep a pile will it be?” he murmured to himself as he studied the edge of this world.

Ruth and the King of the Giants Audio

A Seven Kingdoms Tale, Book 5

A human woman’s determination to find her missing brother leads her to a magical world where giants live – and love.

Download here:

The King of the Giants has met his match…

When her brother goes missing, Ruth Hallbrook follows the only lead that she has – a story told to her by a strange woman who she meets in town. Armed with a ‘magical’ shell that will supposedly guide her, all she has to do is repeat the words she hears when she puts it to her ear. That would have been fine if she could have understood what it was saying! One wrong word lands her in a kingdom filled with giants, including one very large, irritating one who thinks she belongs in his gilded cage – fat chance of that!

An opportunity to escape for a little peace and quiet turns into a disaster when Koorgan finds himself stuck in an old well. Unable to climb out, his only hope of rescue comes from someone realizing that their king is missing. The last thing he expects is for his rescuer to be barely larger than his hand. Afraid that something might happen to the tiny creature, he feels duty bound to help her find her missing brother and return her to her world. The trouble is, the more time he spends with her, the less he wants to let her go.

Life is dangerous on the Isle of Giants for the diminutive Ruth. It will take every skill this King of the Giants possesses to protect her. Guided by the legend of a mythical plant said to have created the giants, Koorgan will not rest until he can find a way to keep Ruth by his side. Find out if love can overcome the barrier created by a misspoken spell!
