Clear here to read a sample chapter from GHOST IN THE COWL.

Caina Amalas was a nightfighter of the Ghosts, the spies and assassins of the Emperor of Nighmar, and through her boldness and cunning saved the Empire and the world from sorcerous annihilation.

But the victory cost her everything.

Now she is exiled and alone in the city of Istarinmul, far from her home and friends. Yet a centuries-old darkness now stirs in Istarinmul, eager to devour the city and the world itself.

And Caina is the only one that stands in its way…

  1. I’v only read 5 chapters, but so far it’s so depressing… I’m hoping that by the end Caina isn’t so sad

    1. Caina’s been through a quite lot after the last book, but she’s pretty tough – and she’s about to face some serious new challenges.

  2. is ghost in exile different then your choose your own story ghost stories?

    in your choose your own stories. Caina receives a title and settles down leading the ghosts from the Empire. And she marries lord cardinals son.

    After reading ghost in the surg I am wondering if these events are yet future or are they an alternative storyline?

    1. I fear it has sort of evolved over time. When I wrote the Choose Your Own Adventure stories, I never ever thought there would be as many GHOSTS novels as there have been. I tried to keep the continuity of the novels and the continuity of the CYOA stories in sync, but doing so required increasingly elaborate contortions in the novels. So I finally decided the CYOA stories would be a parallel continuity.

    1. Thanks! I told a few people while writing GHOST IN THE COWL that the book would veer between very scary, very sad, and very funny, so I’m glad I at least nailed the funny part. πŸ™‚

  3. When I first read your books I couldn’t put them down. I have read many books about magic and sorcery and these are like nothing I have ever read before!!

    1. Thanks for the kind words about the books! I’m glad you enjoyed them.

      There are a lot of books with wizard main characters, so I thought it would be interesting to write a main character who encounters magic users a lot but has no magic abilities herself…and doesn’t particularly like magic users, for that matter. πŸ™‚

  4. One of the best damn series I have ever read! And I’ve read thousands in my 58 years of life. When I read the first book title, I thought that here goes another supernatural ghost story like my wife likes. What a mind alerting story that was .Since then I have read and enjoyed every one of The Ghosts novels and will start The Ghost in Exile tomorrow. Thank you for writing some of the best stories I have ever read!

    1. Thanks for the kind words about THE GHOSTS! I’m glad you liked the books. If all goes well, I’m hoping to start the next book in the series towards the end of next month.
