Damian Vesik is back ... but his time in the Abyss changed him. As he grapples to understand his oddly fluctuating powers, a call from his trusted mechanic, Samir, is the last thing he needs. But the strange occurrences at the autobody shop can’t be ignored.
Calling on Nixie—and a rather odd gift from a water witch clan—Damian uncovers a dreadful creature haunting Samir’s shop. Knowing he can’t face a basilisk in his current state, his only option is to seek out Gaia in his quest for answers.
Yet as destruction closes in on St. Louis, the only hope of salvation could be the ghost of an Utukku ... one who is downright cranky about being dead.
Time grows short to secure the desert city of Midstream. Fel struck a devastating blow, and it’s only a matter of time until their next attack. Out of options, Jacob turns to the abandoned works of Charles von Atlier to create a Titan Mech. The towering machine may be just the weapon they need to protect the city.
But Mordair’s thirst for power is escalating. As King of Fel he is taking full advantage of his alliance with the kingdom across the sea. Together, they’re preparing a siege on Belldorn sure to split their enemies’ focus.
Jacob and Alice are placing all their hopes of salvation in the Titan Mech when a terrible discovery in the Red Woods proves even that won’t be enough. Somehow, someway, they must strengthen their defenses. The quest to come will be their riskiest yet as they journey straight into the heart of Fel itself.
Damian Vesik is no hero. At least, not according to the magical community that turns a blind eye to his battles against evil. So he chalks it up as one more thankless mission when he’s forced to stop his vampire sister from murdering her ex’s entire bridal party…
Infiltrating the ceremony to protect the innocent, Damian uncovers something more sinister than a massacre. With the help of his berserker fairy friend, he'll need to prevent an unholy union between ancient demons and the walking dead.
Damian has one chance to stop his sister and ruin the wedding before one hell of an afterparty dooms the world.
Days Gone Bad is the first book in the savagely funny Vesik urban fantasy series. If you like gritty action, undead enemies, and plenty of snark, then you’ll love Eric R. Asher’s heart-stopping tale.
Wolves and the River of Stone (Book 2)
A jilted ex. An undead army. Never date the damned...
Zola thought not seeing her ex-boyfriend Philip for 150 years meant he got the hint that they were over. Or, better yet, that he had taken her advice and dropped dead. No such luck. Not only is he back, he has kidnapped Zola and is using her as a pawn in his plan to raise an army to scour humanity from the earth.
Damian Vesik is ready to take Philip on, but he won’t be doing it alone. Flanked by a pack of snarling and snapping werewolves, they are headed to an old battlefield at Stones River to put an end to Philip’s twisted agenda. If they don’t get there in time, however, Zola’s reputation—and life—hang in the balance.
Winter's Demon (Book 3)
A haunted sanctuary. A deranged god. Some things can never be undone ...
The horrors Damian has defeated—or caused—with his own hands are nothing compared to what’s coming. Philip brought his reign of terror down in an assault on Damian’s family. Now, an enraged necromancer hungers for retribution.
Philip’s twisted agenda is far from finished. He and his army of necromancers are on the move, descending on the world as harbingers of a great darkness. Aligning himself with Ezekiel, the mad god, Philip plans to unleash a power that will bring mankind to its knees.
Now they must seek out an old ally who may hold their only hope of salvation, and perhaps allow Damian and Zola to prevent Ezekiel’s return. As Philip’s ever-growing horde of demons emerge, however, they’ll have to hope their combined efforts will be enough.
