Kylie Chan’s Dark Heavens Series

I just discovered this fabulously intriguing urban fantasy series instore yesterday. Problem: they’ve only been released in Australia and New Zealand, which means you, my dear foreigner friends, will find these very difficult to get your hands on at a price you can afford.

The author is Kylie Chan. According to the acknowledgements, her agent is Anni Haig-Smith, whom I’m having a lot of trouble finding on the Internet. So if you’re interested in securing non-AU/NZ rights, you’d best contact the author, or HarperCollins Australia’s HarperVoyager imprint.

Big respect to Harper’s production crew, because the covers are absolutely stunning. And kudos to the author for writing books I’d be quite interested to read. And review. *hint hint*

Kylie Chan
White Tiger (Dark Heavens, Book 1)

When 28−year−old Emma Donahoe becomes a nanny to John Chen’s daughter‚ Simone‚ she does not expect to be drawn into a world of martial arts‚ magic‚ and extreme danger‚ where both gods and demons can exist in the mortal world. Emma gradually realises that John Chen is no ordinary businessman and that nearly all the demons in hell would like to see him dead. John and his American bodyguard‚ Leo‚ begin to teach Emma their particular brand of martial arts and special defensive techniques…they also begin to realise that there is something that is different about Emma but exactly what it is‚ nobody can say. A fabulous‚ fast−paced and very entertaining fantasy adventure…a trilogy based on Chinese mythology‚ set in modern−day Hong Kong‚ where an ancient god falls in love with a young Australian woman…
