Blowing Smoke, the fifth novel in the Rainbow Award-nominated M/M Fae SoulShares series by Rory NiCoileain, has just been published by Riverdale Avenue Books.
The SoulShares series begins more than two thousand years ago, when the Fae of the Realm walled themselves off from the human world, in a last-ditch attempt to save the Realm from the unimaginable malevolence of the Marfach. The wisest among the Fae were able to foretell that only Fae in the human world had any chance of destroying the Marfach. So they left one path by which Fae –exiles, misfits, rebels – could make their way to the human world.
At a terrible cost. A Fae passing through the Pattern loses half his soul. That half is reborn, somewhere in human time and human space, in a human. In order to be whole, in order to stand a chance in the final battle against the race’s most ancient enemy, an exiled Fae must find – and mate with – and love – the human who bears the other half of his sundered soul.
The problem? Fae don’t love.
Hard as Stone was a finalist for Best Debut Novel and Best Gay Erotic Romance in the 2012 Rainbow Awards and was also a finalist for Best Erotica, in the 2012 Preditors & Editors Readers Poll.
Gale Force, the second novel in the SoulShares series, Deep Plunge, the third novel, and FireStorm, the series’ fourth title, are all currently available from Riverdale Avenue Books with new covers.
Blowing Smoke, the first new novel in the second half of the eight-book series, was published on July 17th.
“The launch of Blowing Smoke is an amazing day for everyone who’s fallen in love with the SoulShares! I’m absolutely thrilled to be bringing back the Fae and humans of the Demesne of Purgatory, as they discover the consequences of their meddling with the Pattern in Firestorm. Lasair Faol and Bryce Newhouse are totally worthy – and smokingly hot – additions to the canon. And there’s an adorable puppy,” explained the author.
