The Wolf of Ashford Manor is part of the Playing With Fire Box Set
Patrick Blakesley, born to a bloodline of werewolves, has returned from the Carlist War. He falls in love with the mysteriously shy, yet ravishingly beautiful Angelica, daughter of Lord Alaric, lord of Ashford.
All is not as it seems, however, and Patrick is forbidden to be with Angelica. Yet, when mysterious deaths on the surrounding farms put Patrick’s life in danger, it is Angelica who helps him hide his identity.
Together, they seek out who is behind the murders and embark on a journey of discovery as they try to keep their love alive before all humanity perishes before the power of the angel of death.
Azrael Thanatos wants nothing more than to follow in the footsteps of his scientist mother. Sent to study humans on a wager between the Eternal Emperor and Shay'tan, he has no idea Earth is gateway to a fiery prison. Far from home, he is befriended by Elissar, a precocious child with silver eyes. When Moloch instigates an invasion of Carthage to escape, Azrael sacrifices his life to snatch Elissar from the Devourer of Children's maw.
Saved by a mysterious mother-goddess, Azrael is given a new mission. Watchman. Roaming the Earth without shape or form, he searches for those who would help Moloch escape and drags them back to Gehenna, a prison which only Lucifer, debauch son of the Emperor, holds the key. It's a hellish immortality, for who wants to serve alongside the Fallen or exist when no living creature can survive your touch? Ki promised he would see Elissar again, but as time grinds civilizations into dust, Azrael begins to lose hope.
Then one day a child takes his hand and lives…
