Cold Magics is the sequel to Small Magics. The book is targeted for adults, but is appropriate for YA readers as well.
THOMAS FLARETY KNOWS that magic is real. Few believe in it, fewer can use it — and as far as Thomas knows, he’s the only one who can see it.
The duchy of Frostmire to the north is under siege. No one knows the identity of the raiders, only that they wield powerful magic. Thomas’s friend Henry, son of the duke, convinces Thomas to leave his studies and travel to Frostmire’s aid. But the church has also taken an interest in the rumours of “witchcraft” in the north. And the Envoy to the Archbishop is as interested in Thomas as he is in the enemy.
Thomas’s investigation draws him ever farther from Eileen, the girl he loves, and closer to being hunted, himself. Thomas must figure out who the raiders are and how to stop them before he loses Eileen, before the Envoy takes matters into his own hands, and before all of Frostmire is destroyed.

Galeria is ready to hit the streets of L.A. for a quick snack and maybe a little shopping. She is a very happy, satisfied woman—having just left her two hot vampire lovers sleeping soundly in her bed. But their lives weren’t always so wonderful, such a long time ago in Rome...
Back then, Galeria was the emperor's daughter. She wasn’t supposed to have a scorching secret affair with the beautiful and bountiful Cassian, Rome’s greatest gladiator. Nor should she have taken comfort in the massive marble-like arms of Atticus—Cassian’s best friend, her night chamber guard and a closet vampire—when informed of Cassian’s supposed demise.
Too late, they discover that Cassian lives, and overcome with jealousy, he challenges Atticus to a battle to the death in the arena. Galeria is caught in the middle, tormented by her feelings for these two powerful men. But strange and mysterious things are about to happen—rituals that will change all their lives forever.
