Finch is in deep, with no surface in sight.
He hadn’t expected a welcoming party when they whirlpooled into Atlantis — although “welcoming” isn’t exactly the right word. More like “mildly hostile.”
As descendants of the powerful Primus Anglicus, the Atlanteans are not to be trifled with. But Erebus isn’t leaving until he gets what he wants — and neither is Davin. Caught in the midst of a political battle royale, Finch can only ride out the waves.
And he knows he’ll be lucky to escape this underwater prison without leaving anyone behind.
For Melody, being trapped in an ancient, unfamiliar city is a dream come true. She hungers to fill the gaps in her knowledge, and Atlantis is a delicious buffet, from love potions and Death Day celebrations to beautiful and dangerous creatures.
Navigating this new world isn’t so scary with her trusty bodyguard by her side, though she must protect her own heart. History has shown that the Librarian isn’t supposed to fall in love... but what if it’s already too late?
Risingshadow has had the honour of interviewing Kellie Doherty.
Kellie Doherty is an author from Eagle River, Alaska, who writes science fiction and fantasy. Living in Alaska gave her an appreciation for nature, a hankering for a good cup of tea, and a passion for all things below zero. During those dark winter nights, she kept herself busy by writing stories and creating characters. When she noticed a lack of queer characters in science fiction and fantasy stories, she decided to create her own. Her first sci-fi book "Finding Hekate" was published by Desert Palm Press in April 2016, and the sequel "Losing Hold" was published in April 2017. She's currently working on a five-book fantasy series, and the first book "Sunkissed Feathers & Severed Ties" will be out in March 2019.

Catherine Dousteyssier-Khoze's The Beauty of the Death Cap was published by Snuggly Books in August 2018.
Information about Catherine Dousteyssier-Khoze:
Catherine Dousteyssier-Khoze is Associate Professor of French at Durham University, U.K. She is the author of numerous books, critical editions and articles on nineteenth-century literature and French cinema. Her latest book, Claude Chabrol’s Aesthetics of Opacity, was released by Edinburgh University Press in 2018. The Beauty of the Death Cap, published in France in 2015, is her début novel. It won the André Dubreuil Prize awarded by the Société des Gens de Lettres and a Fondation Prince Pierre de Monaco Prize.
Information about The Beauty of the Death Cap:
Nikonor is an eccentric and scholarly snob, a mycomaniac who has just made it to the Château de la Charlanne where he spent his childhood in the company of his twin sister, Anastasie. After all these years, it is not quite clear what brings him back to la Charlanne - an isolated and somewhat derelict castle located in the heart of the French countryside - but he is keen to share various memories with the reader in order to ‘set the record straight’, while he delivers his opinions on literature, cheeses, and, especially, mushrooms.
Winner of both a Prix André Dubreuil and a Prix Fondation Prince Pierre de Monaco upon its original publication in France, The Beauty of the Death Cap is a darkly comic and sinister novel, a work that, page by page, becomes ever more disturbing, as we try to discover who Nikonor really is.
