Hidden throughout the worlds are magical portals leading to the secret dimension where Mystic’s Carnival is nestled. A self-aware fair that is both carnival and circus combined, and filled with a plethora of supernatural and paranormal beings.
Performers and runaways, Kyra and Sebastian, are away visiting the human realm when they find themselves at odds. Stay hidden, or interfere with a human’s destiny?
Saving a life doesn’t go unpunished.
Kyra thinks saving Marcus’s life is easy -- slick as dragon snot -- and a one-time deal. The resulting bond tying her to him and enslaving her as protector is unexpected.
She didn’t expect one good deed to turn into an endless chain of good deeds. Or to complicate the relationship with her best friend, Sebastian. And she especially didn’t expect it to place her life on the line.
Kyra’s dragon must keep Marcus alive and salvage her relationship with Sebastian without losing herself or dying.

The last thing Sara remembers is a conflicted night out with her boyfriend, Matt, and laying out under the dark night’s sky. How she came to be seated among the crowd under the Big Top is a mystery. When and how did she get there? She doesn’t wait to find out. Whether it’s due to basic fear or the scary, hideous clowns, Sara and Matt run. Run beyond the tent walls into the deep, dark alleys of the carnival. What they find along their mad dash to the parking lot will have them redefining their idea of fun zones, thrill rides, and date nights. Fear is an eat-you-alive monster. Refusing to be defined by that monster, they will confront those fears. What they find?
Perceptions can be excruciatingly misleading … and some monsters have hidden claws.

Sebastian is finished following commands. Higher powers be damned. He has his own agenda -- find Kyra and help restore her memory.
At first his plan goes better than expected. But as life starts looking up for the would-be Reaper, his metaphorical sickle becomes caught in a web of complications.
Things are never smooth for Sebastian and Kyra.
Best-laid plans sometimes rest in peace.
A detour -- unexpected and unwelcome -- delivers Sebastian into the depths of an grave situation. Misfortune and misunderstanding are the cards dealt to him. And events fail to flip in his favor.
Creatures from hell all want a piece of the young Reaper. If Sebastian ends up dead, that’s okay. For he has a more grievous beast to worry about. To save the woman he loves, Sebastian will venture into the heart of an all-powerful fire demon.
Sebastian must find a missing dragon and the key to Kyra’s memory without being devoured by sinister beasts or -- even worse -- consumed by his own inner demons.

An Excerpt from Reap Not the Dragon: The Age of the Hybrid, Book Two
Tension tightened Sebastian’s back and shoulders. It wasn’t the request that got to him. It was the sound of her voice, the anxious need. “Better yet, why don’t you ditch work? Come with me now. I can take you somewhere that might just be exactly what you need—” Without warning, Sebastian’s jaw locked up, his every muscle froze, and he couldn’t move. What the f---in’ hell is going on? his inner voice yelled, and his eyes darted left and right.
“Sebastian?” Kyra inquired. “You were saying?”
He couldn’t respond. Couldn’t will his mouth to work or voice to answer. But his gaze narrowed in on the culprit, standing not-so-inconspicuously by the creamer station. Tall, gray suit with hat pulled down to shield his facial features, and a cheesy name tag tacked to his chest, probably his father’s lame idea. All part of the everyone-get-to-know-Sebastian movement. Except, all the names were fake. So what was the point? The Reaper across the room was no more named Mr. Johnson than his father was Mr. Smith.
Damn Reapers. Now Sebastian had a tail because his father didn’t trust him on his own. His gaze shifted to Kyra.
“Sebastian?” Kyra’s eyes bored into him, large and wide.
