Aaron Pogue’s New Release Notifications Are Moving

Author photoHi, all! This is Aaron Pogue, author of the Ghost Targets series, the Dragonprince’s Legacy, and the Godlanders War. You’re receiving this email because (at some point, possibly in the distant past) you signed up for a mailing list notification whenever I release a new title.

The website I was using to manage that list is no longer really in operation, so I haven’t been too good about keeping it up to date. There might be some new titles available since you signed up (I’ll provide a list below so you can check easily), but the main reason I’m writing is to urge you to switch your subscription to a new service–one that will send out updates automatically without waiting for me to remember, and one that will provide you a much smoother (and prettier) process for finding my new books at your favorite store.

Please, click the following link and sign up for my New Release Notifications through Books2Read:

I apologize for the trouble, but I assure you that you’ll find this service to be a marked improvement. Once you’ve subscribed to the new list, you can unsubscribe from this one. But you don’t really need to; I don’t think you’ll receive any more emails from this list at all.

Thank you–a thousand times, thank you–for signing up in the first place. My readers are some of my favorite people; you’ve made my life wonderful. I look forward to trying to return the favor with every new book I release.

In the meantime, here’s the promised list of the books currently available:

New Release! Oberon’s Dreams by Aaron Pogue

We’re proud to announce the full release of Oberon’s Dreams, the first book in a new adventure fantasy series by Aaron Pogue.

Corin Hugh thought his mission had come to a highly profitable end. But King Oberon made sure his quest was just beginning…

After a three-year search, Corin has found the lost city of Jezeeli. The dashing, quick-witted pirate promised his crew that they would be rewarded with a treasure beyond their wildest dreams, but the ancient ruins hold no treasure—only stacks of strange books. Left to die in a fire set by his mutinous crew, Corin is mysteriously rescued and transported back in time to a city ruled by King Oberon.

Only Oberon has the power to send Corin home. But the tyrant Ephitel–a brutal god whose name strikes fear even in Corin’s time–has designs on Oberon’s throne. Can Corin defeat the mighty Ephitel and change the course of history?

With a supporting cast of mystical druids, a gentleman thief, and a banished courtier from the House of Violets, Oberon’s Dreams is an action-packed, richly imagined adventure fantasy.

Oberon’s Dreams is the first book in the Godlanders War. Get your copy in ebook, audiobook, or paperback at

New Release! A Darkness in the East by Aaron Pogue

Consortium Books is proud to announce the digital release of A Darkness in the East, a novella by Aaron Pogue.

Daven Carrickson is no longer the beggar, the shepherd boy, the failed wizard. Conquering kings and monsters has made him into something more: the Dragonprince. Now the Dragonprince’s Legacy continues as Daven battles A Darkness in the East.

Shortly after the events described in The Dragonswarm, Daven must pursue a solo mission against an enemy more terrible than any he has faced before. But as powerful and as dangerous as the new adversary is to Daven’s fragile peace, it’s Daven’s heart that faces the greatest peril. Hints and rumors suggest this strange new threat is one of Daven’s closest allies, and the closer he comes, the more he fears that the monster torturing the people of the eastern plains is his own bonded dragon, Vechernyvetr.

A Darkness in the East is the first of five novellas continuing the story of Daven Dragonprince and his elite cadre of dragonriders known as The Dragonprince’s Arrows. Read more.

New Release! Rethana’s Trial by Courtney Cantrell

Consortium Books is proud to announce the digital release of Rethana’s Trial by Courtney Cantrell.

In Rethana’s Surrender, the pulse-pounding opening novel of Legends of the Light-Walkers, the gathering of an army shattered Rethana Chosardal’s comfortable life and thrust her into the arms of one who could be either tormentor or savior. But just as she began to feel safe with the clerics who once hunted her family, new trials wrenched her from even this thin protection.

Now unknown enemies have captured her and torn her from the side of her dying sister. Once again tossed on the waves of war with no safe harbor, Rethana has nowhere to turn. The elusive, nomadic Soldan claim her as part of their ancient prophecy to overthrow the malicious rule of an evil emperor. To entice her into their cause, the Soldan offer to feed her insatiable hunger for magical knowledge. Is Rethana willing to pay the price they ask?

Before she can decide, another menace sweeps down from the icy north. Under the relentless scourge of the diabolical Skardi, it becomes clear that the petty civil war between Soldan and the clerics places the whole nation in peril. There is no hope but an alliance…if only either side would heed Rethana’s warnings.

Rethana stands alone in the midst of trial and treachery, the powers of two great monarchs arrayed against her. Even the strength of the Warlord Allasin, her master and possible beloved, is out of reach. Abandoned by old friends, beset by new enemies, Rethana stands at the very heart of her homeland, forced to make her last stand.

Though the fate of Rethana’s sister remains unknown and the whole world rests upon her shoulders, Rethana will bend but not break. Only this iron determination can see her through Rethana’s Trial.

Rethana’s Trial is the second book in the Legends of the Light-Walkers. Read more.

Despite Finn’s unfailing loyalty, he is forced from his home to forge a new destiny.Already a powerful warrior and deadly reaver, Finn discovers that he above all others is equipped to kill the monsters, the giants, the myths that besiege Midgard. He becomes the Myth Reaver and a living legend.

Yet despite his prowess and fame–indeed because of them–Finn never wins that which he most desires. His longing for home goes unfulfilled. After a lifetime spent battling dread monsters and shining demigods, Finn realizes that in all the Nine Worlds, there is only one enemy whose defeat can give him the renown he so richly deserves.

Whether it’s in search of glory or a glorious death, Finn always overlooks his true enemy. That mistake will be his downfall.

Two New Releases in Epic Fantasy!

Consortium Books is proud to announce the digital release of two new epic fantasies.

Rethana’s Surrender by Courtney Cantrell

Rethana’s Surrender is the debut epic fantasy from Courtney Cantrell.

Rethana Chosardal’s life in hiding is over, and she has no one but herself to blame. A foolish choice leaves her in the power of the same vengeful clerics who slaughtered most of her family when she was but a child. Worse, the soldiers also seize her best friend and her frail little sister.

Allasin, the clerics’ leader, recognizes in Rethana the Blessing of comori, magical energy that can manipulate the elements. Rethana has always craved the power her birthright can bring, but Allasin will only teach her if she serves him in intrigues she cannot hope to understand. Yet this cold, cruel adversary gives her glimpses now and then of a warmer soul–of a master she could fall in love with.

Rethana is torn between two men: the hometown protector who loved her as a girl and the conqueror who loves her as a woman. As civil war threatens, Rethana must choose between her power and her past. Knowing that a reckless act has already cost her the life she once loved, this new choice may well tear her fragile heart apart. How much more will she surrender to protect her precious, dying sister?

Rethana’s Surrender is the first book in the Legends of the Light-Walkers. Read more.

The Dragonprince’s Heir by Aaron Pogue

The Dragonprince’s Heir is the much-anticipated conclusion of the bestselling Dragonprince trilogy.

The dragonswarm is ended. Fifteen years after Daven Carrickson rebuilt legendary Palmagnes, the civilization of man is once again safe from reptilian menace. But the long years have taken their toll. The Dragonprince is ten years missing, mighty cities still lie in smoldering ruins, and the kingdom of the Sarianne is broken. Hoping to rebuild his old dominion, the jealous king now brings an army to the Tower’s very gates. And whom should he find waiting but the Dragonprince’s son?

Born in cataclysm and brought up in the sheltered comfort of Daven’s stronghold, fourteen-year-old Taryn remembers little of his father and knows even less of the world. But Taryn knows what he is owed. He demands the king respect him as the Dragonprince’s heir…and quickly learns how vulnerable his family is without Daven to protect them.

Dragged off with his mother as a hostage to the king, Taryn comes to understand that his pride imperils everything his parents sacrificed to build. To redeem their legacy, he must forge a new path for himself.

On his own, Taryn will learn that being a hero means enduring much hardship. He will learn that his heritage brings grave responsibilities. He will learn what it means to be his father’s son. But he has to do it fast, or he will lose his mother…forever.

The Dragonprince’s Heir is the third and final book in the Dragonprince Trilogy. Approximately 100,000 words. Read more.

New Release! Foreign Identity by Becca J. Campbell

Consortium Books is proud to announce the release of Foreign Identity, by Becca J. Campbell.


Cold. Confusion. Fear. This is how it all begins.

Waking up without your memory in a cell and bound by chains is terrifying.

Two nameless strangers, a man and a woman, find themselves imprisoned together. With no memories of their own identities, let alone their captor and tormentor, escape is the only option. The pair faces a bizarre labyrinth of rooms and clues that confuse more than they explain. Every discovery only brings more questions.

Who captured them? Why were they taken? What does their captor want from them? What can the riddles mean?

Who are they?

Lacking allies and options, the duo must learn to trust one another. Mazes, puzzles, and even strange, lurking creatures force them to rely on their wits–and each other–for survival. But survival isn’t enough. They need answers.

Will the answers be enough? Will the truth bring them closer together, or drive them forever apart? Will discovering their identities finally bring them home?

Consortium Books is proud to announce the digital release of Stains of Grace, by Courtney Cantrell.


Anne Waylock thought she was safe. Safe from the madness of demons and the auguren who hunted them. Safe from her tumultuous feelings for the troubled Owin Moran. Safe from the pain of her best friend’s betrayal. Four months ago she ran away from it all, and she never planned on looking back.But when Legion, a mutant demon terrifying and dangerous even to other demons, appears in her new refuge, Anne finds herself forced to flee right back to the people she ran away from.

As if Legion weren’t enough, a normal demon hunts Anne as well, ready to devour her body and soul. Peter, normally the voice of reason and sanity in the face of the supernatural, has broken with reality. The auguren themselves are confused and frightened of Legion’s power and the changes it has wrought.

Even under guard from those trained and specially empowered by God to fight demons, safety is an illusion.

To her growing horror, Anne realizes the only way to set earth, heaven, and hell right is another trip to the demon realm of Saltmarch. The dual threat of insidious demons and Anne’s own weakness leaves her wondering if redemption might be the most painful, and most dangerous, option of all.
