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.

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.

Release Date for The Dragonprince’s Heir (The Dragonprince Trilogy, #3)

We’re excited to announce an official release date for the hotly-anticipated conclusion to the bestselling Dragonprince Trilogy!

And in case you’re having a hard time waiting, Aaron has shared some friendly recommendations for passing the time until June 26th.

New Release! Camouflage (Ghost Targets, #4) by Aaron Pogue

Consortium Books is proud to announce the release of Camouflage, the fourth novel in the Ghost Targets series by Aaron Pogue.

We abandoned privacy and turned databases into something like gods. They listened to our prayers. They met our needs and blessed us with new riches. They watched over us, protected us, and punished the wicked. We almost made a paradise.

But there were still places the system could not see. Heading into the high mountains and deep woods was like stepping back in time, to an era where archives were incomplete and untrustworthy. Now a new threat has taken root in the cracks, threatening to expand the already dangerous gaps. Somewhere in remote West Virginia, where the databases’ all-seeing eye sometimes falters, a sheriff is murdered and only the FBI’s Ghost Targets team can track down the killers.

Saddled with a new partner she doesn’t trust, Katie Pratt finds herself in a town whose archive is as full of holes as the people are full of mistrust for federal agents. Trapped in a community of petty criminals, Katie becomes the hunted. Now this city girl must fight to survive in a wilderness without Hathor.

New Release! A Consortium of Worlds #2

We’re proud to announce the release of A Consortium of Worlds #2, a short story anthology by our Consortium Writers!

A Consortium of Worlds is your window into Consortium Books’s outstanding stable of speculative fiction authors. A Consortium of Worlds is a showcase of new and innovative voices in all types of fiction from a publisher dedicated to allowing every writer his or her own voice. There are no slaves to trends or what’s-hot lists here, only writers imagining newer and brighter vistas of unseen tomorrows, untold yesterdays, unknown todays, and untouched worlds of pure imagination.

Joshua Unruh knows that villainy wins all too often in the real world, but what might happen if supervillainy won? Courtney Cantrell smashes fiction and reality together to see what pretty pictures she can make with the pieces. Thomas Beard tells a tale that could be a fable of humanity or a true story from history. Becca Campbell looks to a future where normal is the new freak. Aaron Pogue takes us into a landscape destroyed by the blast-fires of dragons rather than a nuclear furnace, yet no less post-apocalyptic for the difference.

Also in this issue, we bring you intelligent and erudite essays guaranteed to challenge you and make you think. Katy Clift asks if Twi-Hards and Potterheads can’t focus on their similarities instead of their differences. Allison Scott takes a hard look at the first impressions of the e-book shopper.

This issue is Volume 2 of the quarterly magazine. Approximately 30,000 words. Edited by Courtney Cantrell and Joshua Unruh.

New Release! The Dragonswarm (The Dragonprince Trilogy, #2) by Aaron Pogue

Consortium Books is proud to announce the digital release of The Dragonswarm, sequel to the bestselling epic fantasy Taming Fire by Aaron Pogue.



 The Kingdom of the Sarianne teeters on the brink. While its tyrant king plays out his petty vendettas, rebellion foments on the edges of his domain. Politics and power struggles gamble civilization on the tides of war.

Yet war is not the greatest threat to civilization. A far older enemy rises. The dragons are waking and these fiends of Chaos will swarm across the world of men, razing it to bedrock just as they have done in ages past.

But this time the world of men has a champion in Daven Carrickson. Once a beggar and still a fugitive from the king’s justice, Daven is also a hero with unrivaled powers. A brush with one of the deadly dragons left him forever bonded to the beast and able to tap into the ever-shifting maelstrom of Chaos that roils beneath man’s fragile reality.

It is a dangerous connection, one that threatens to consume him. Can he pay even that ultimate price if it means the salvation of humanity?
