The five fantasy stories in this collection offer a journey of hope, strength, and the immortality of love. The Demon Ex finds Martin returning to the wilds of Canada, circa 1800, with rival and lover Shade Reid; they battle a sorcerer zombie together. Colin (who is not quite dead), is a ghostly servant trying to return to his corporeal form with the help of a cursed house and his determined lover Eldrid. In Zandry of Bonewood, the book's eponymous story, paper-pushing marshal Flint, lovelorn and frustrated, looks for the specious hero Zandry, as well as his missing spouse, in a small village full of new friends and foes. Another phantom hero brings a musician, the captain of the royal guards, and a frightened secret-keeper together to heal the wounds of a mining disaster in The Black Arrow. An elf and a bounty hunter reconnect after three years separated to save a powerful boy prince from a pirate in The Last Time in Summervale. Please note that not all the stories in this collection contain erotica.
