Our April Adult book is a dark and queer romantasy that will appeal to history lovers and fantasy fans alike. When our protagonist's once-beloved ex-husband usurps his throne, throwing the country into war, he finds himself fleeing in grief, going into exile with the last remnants of his court.

But as the war rages on, his ex-husband, now Tzar of the country, gathers power of the darkest kind for his own purposes — and if he succeeds, the world will pay for his greed. 

The only solution? The Tzar must die.

The Sins on Their Bones by Laura R. Samotin

Dimitri Alexeyev used to be the Tzar of Novo-Svitsevo. Now, he is in exile. Having lost a civil war against his ex-husband, Alexey Balakin, Dimitry has become a shadow of who he used to be. When the last members of his beloved court come up with a plan to take his country back, Dimitri must put his heart on his line by sending his spymaster, Vasily Sokolov, back into Alexey’s court under a false identity... while Dimitri finds a way to kill his ex-husband for good.

But stopping Alexey is not so easy as plotting to kill an ordinary man. Through dark perversions, Alexey has resurrected himself into an immortal, indestructible body — and now wants nothing more than to drown the country in blood.

What do I do if one of my items arrived damaged?

We are sorry to hear one of your items was damaged in shipping. We do our best to make sure everything is packed safely and securely in your box but things can get bumped about in transit.


Damaged Books:

Though we aim to send out books in the best condition possible, small dings are very common to any books shipped, and even those found on the shelves in bookstores. Books are shipped many times - from the printer to us, and then from us to you. If you feel your book is damaged, please send an email and a photo of the issue to customer support and we will be happy to take a look.


When emailing support, please let us know the email address attached to your account so we can easily find your order and shipping address.
