Erotic stories set in the world of Elizabeth A. Schechter‘s Rebel Mage series.
According to legend, the Others descended upon the human world a thousand years ago, erasing human science and civilization in a flood of fire and magic. After the Others retreated to the mountains, the Elders gathered the survivors together into Enclaves, uniting humanity with their magic and the strict religious rule of the Codex.
Of course, not everyone fell into line. Some defied the Enclaves, to live as rebels and bandits in the wilderness. Within the Enclaves, those who resisted the sacred authority of the Elders were sent away to the School, and never heard from again.
Matthias was sent to the School, but he did not quietly disappear. He came out of the School with magic and secrets the Elders feared, and his efforts to live free with the man he loves will shake the foundations of their world.
- Counsel of the Wicked by Elizabeth A. Schechter
Matthias has spent his whole life on the edge of a very small world. The bastard child of a fallen woman, he's known nothing but judgment and hatred from the harsh, religious people of his enclave—except for Balthazar. The son and heir of the High Elder, Balthazar shows Matthias kindness, love... and desire. But when the High Elder discovers what his son has been doing, Matthias is arrested and sent to an isolated prison known as the School. There, and in the wastelands beyond, Matthias learns the secrets behind the hypocrisies of the Council of Elders, and his true heritage, true power, and true love. (M/M, M/F)
- Haven’s Fall by Elizabeth A. Schechter
Still reeling from his final encounter with the Elders, Matthias finally reaches the promised safety of Haven. There, he is met with suspicion and accusations, learning too late that the new world he’s entered is built on as many illusions and lies as the world he’s left behind, and that the safe home he’s been searching for isn’t safe after all. When all the illusions come crashing down, and Matthias barely escapes with his life and his friends, he finds himself going back to the start — and finds himself one step closer to the truth.(M/M, M/F)
- Where Home Lies by Elizabeth A. Schechter
Once an exile, Matthias returns to lead his home Enclave and settles into a new life with his beloved Solomon. Struggling with his new role and responsibilities toward the new town of Sanctuary and the people who had once rejected him, he knows that the relative peace he’s found is temporary—the forces that destroyed Haven are still out there, and he knows that they’ll come looking for him. Until they do, there are alliances to make, mouths to feed, and people who look to him to protect them. Then tragedy strikes, sending Matthias, Solomon and Tam out once more, seeking answers in the forbidden north; answers that may lead to new beginnings, or to the end of everything they’ve ever known.
