There are so many awesome indie/small press books that I've read, and as much as I wish I could highlight all of them here, I'm giving away the first two books in a series I've enjoyed reading so much <3 Plus, the author's Canadian and he gets bonus points just for that.
Exiled (The Protector #1) by M.R. Merrick
Chase Williams is a demon hunter in the Circle, or at least he was supposed to be. On his fifteenth birthday, Chase stepped up to the altar to claim his elemental power, but it never came. Elemental magic is passed down to a hunter through the bloodline, but on Chase's birthday, the bloodline stopped.
Exiled without the Circle's protection, Chase has spent two years trying to survive a world riddled with half-demons and magic. When he has a run in with a frightened and seemingly innocent demon, he learns the Circle's agenda has changed: the Circle plans to unlock a portal and unleash pure-blood demons into the world. Vowing to stop them, and knowing he can't do it alone, Chase forms a reluctant alliance with Rayna — a sexy witch with an attitude and a secret.
In their attempt to stop them, Chase and Rayna find themselves in the middle of the Circle's plan, leaving one of them to decide what their friendship is worth, and the other's life depending on it.
To find out more, you can find my review for Exiled here and read my review for Shift here.
(If you're interested in some other well done, interesting indie books to read I would also recommend Descended by Blood by Angeline Kace, Pyxis by K.C. Neal, Tangled Tides by Karen Amanda Hooper, and Witch Song by Amber Argyle to name a few.
