Blade and Bone – D. K. Holmberg
Sanaron is a city of fog and violence; a place where even the past can disappear.
Kanar Reims, an ex-soldier known as the Blackheart, hides a dangerous secret. Exiled from the Realmsguard, he wants nothing to do with the kind of magic that destroyed his life.
That is until his team of mercenaries is offered a job they can’t refuse.
He’ll need the help of others working in the city: An assassin who uses the bones of her enemies in her art. An archer with strange skills. And a stranded sailor whose loyalties are unknown.
Impossible wealth awaits if they succeed, but far more is at stake if they fail, for a deadly magic will be unleashed upon the world.

Breaker of Horizons – NoDragons
Nic has been Selected.
Chosen to leave his own body behind and become a monster.
Chosen to live or die on his own wits. His own strengths.
He’ll adventure out into a new realm as a foot soldier for the System’s relentless integration of new worlds. Fighting to break the natives into submission.
But Nic has never loved the System, or cared for his home planet, a depleted husk of a world that the System forgot long ago. With blue skies overhead and green forest to the horizons, he might just fall in love with this strange planet named Earth…
That would leave him with few friends and a thousand enemies. That would leave him clawing, biting, scratching to survive.
