Only the strong survive in the Eight Realms, which are caught in an endless war for supremacy. Maleni understands this very quickly when, after a massacre, which her entire village falls victim to, she finds admission to the Order of the Xyi. Unrelenting drill and a mysterious ritual let a part of Maleni become the Assassin Taryah, who without feeling pity or asking questions pursues her bloody trade. But things are not as simple as they seem – not in the Eight Realms and not in the Order of the Xyi. And one day Maleni must realize that Taryah is not only a part of her – but her greatest enemy.

Obsidian Secrets

by Ju Honisch
Amazon E-Book 

The year is 1865. The place: Munich, capital of the Kingdom of Bavaria. A magical manuscript has been stolen. Assisted by two young Bavarian officers and a wizard-scientist, British officer and secret agent Delacroix is sent to find it and return it to England. However, the promise of destructive power contained in the manuscript draws murderous creatures who plan to use the artefact to change reality into a gory vision defined according to their most heinous fantasies.

Miss Corrisande Jarrencourt, a young English lady with an unspeakable secret, has come to Munich to find a rich husband. Caught in the cross current of disasters, she has no choice but to face the worst dangers while being courted by members of the team, coveted by monsters from the abyss of madness, and hunted by a secret cultist order that has its original foundations in the Inquisition.

Her survival is at stake. But then, so is that of the entire world.

Salzträume (Dreams of Salt)

by Ju Honisch
Knaur eBook
01.02.2018 revised edition, 1170 p.
ISBN: 978-3-426-45218-9

The book is set in the autumn of 1865, in the lakes and caves region of the Totes Gebirge (= Dead Mountains that is actually their true name ) in Austria. Hidden in the Alps, an unscrupulous inventor and his minions are secretly building an “über”-weapon. For this they hunt the Sí or Fey – otherworldly creatures of diverse kind – to use them as magical fuel for their machine. When Charlotte actively opposes the brutish hunters of the Fey, she gets drawn into the proceedings and suddenly finds herself among those hunted. She flees into the caves with a complete stranger and to her chagrin must find out that her companion is at least as dangerous as her pursuers – and keeps a really undesirable diet. “Salzträume” (Dreams of Salt) is a follow-up novel for “Obsidian Hearts” which is set in the same universe but has its own story. The novel is the next instalment of adventures set in the 19th century and follows the tradition of the classic gothic novel – with some black humour and a pinch of steam punk. This manuscript, too, is available in English.

No one except herself recognises the danger. No one listens to her – and who will save her? Thorolf’s life is much more pleasant. He is a young artist and bohemian with interesting friends and no need to worry about anything – he thinks. But horror enters his life, and all of a sudden, nothing is as it used to be. He is different, the world no longer is as he knew it, and the girl he wanted to save has turned into a cat. Together with his roommate Ian McMullen, a student of the Arcane Arts, Thorolf has become part of a chess game between powers that go far beyond human capacity.

A secret lies hidden in the Bavarian Forest, a curse that has caused havoc long time ago. While trying to escape from the Brotherhood of Light, the secret order that hunts down anything that appears demonic or suspect them, Konstanze, the governess, and Clarissa, her student, are carried along by the force of events. In an attempt to free her student, Constance gets deeper and deeper into the dark forest without a single idea of what might lie in wait for her there. Smugglers, murderers, wolves, monsters, spirits, mages, monks of the Brotherhood – they are all entangled in a web of events, and they all have their very own plans for Konstanze and Clarissa. And even the two strange gentlemen who have promised help, are not at all what they seem.

Odd behaviour of the nice neighbour from across the corridor, chasms found in souls, mythical creatures which in comparison to the average urban dweller lose some of their scariness The stories have one thing in common: what has been totally normal up to now suddenly twists and turns into something slightly different that will make our spine tingle. The stories are horror stories of the classical kind, no splatter.

Title translation: The Ass on the Comfy Chair Stories about evil bosses

Are they that dumb or do they just pretend to be? They drive big cars, wear expensive suits, spend their time in meetings and are rather unnerved for the rest of the day: bosses. Be they men or women, as soon as they have some power they transmogrify into order-bellowing drill sergeants. They suck at getting the simplest things done. Get a cuppa, make a photocopy, dial a phone number – suddenly all that is just too much. And while other people get things done for them, they cuddle with their blackberries. It’s time they got a little shaking up. These stories tell the truth about bosses. Bärbel Schäfer, Hera Lind, Evelyn Holst, Ju Honisch etc. vent their frustration in a witty and entertaining way. 15 new stories by German authors. A great present for everyone who ever wished their bosses to kingdom come. My story “90 – 60 – 90” can be found among an illustrious group of female authors: Maria Serrano, Hera Lind, Christine Grän, Susanne Luerweg, Sama al Haschasch, Daniela Pietrek, Jutta Kessler, Susanne Arndt, Ann Berg, Sabine Reichel, Edda Minck, Katja Maybach, Evelyn Holst, Renate Fabel, Bärbel Schäfer, Jana Voosen. available at!
