Available April 3rd - the second novel of Rose the Iron Flower

Years are only one way to age in this tale of a young warrior whose army-slaying sword belies her kind heart.

One of the greatest fighters in the world, nearly indestructible Rose lets few things strike fear into her—but magic is one of them. Nonetheless, she seeks out the magical dangers left by the ancients alongside warrior partner Finn and curious scholar Derrick in order to protect others from them. Their mission is complicated by Rose and Finn's budding romance, as her choice of lifestyle conflicts with his expectations for the woman he loves. But after their quest pits against such titanic foes as a prince able to slay a thousand men in a day and a draconic archmage, will Rose be forced to embrace the very magic she fears?

You can purchase Iron Flower at:


"Are you two… together? I see how much you like being with each other."

They weren’t "together," in the sense Derrick meant, but Finn wondered if he might be well on his way to falling for her. He loved being around her, but never thought of it in a romantic sense. He had always regarded her the way he would a favorite male drinking buddy—fun and exciting to be around, and always ready to cheer him up if he was feeling down. However, he had felt less pleasure at being with other women, ever since they'd met and become better and better friends.

As for the question, Finn took the easy way out. Getting louder with each word, he proclaimed, "Rose is the best friend and greatest warrior I've ever met. I'd fight an archmage of the Old World for her, hell, she would fight one again for me! I'd have her watching my back over any army you could find! She is the shield which protects me, the wall which shelters me, and I am her sword, that strikes down any who would threaten her!”

He had risen from his seat, and felt somehow uplifted by his overblown tirade. As he sat back down, he said in a dramatic tone, "So in answer to your question, yes. Of course we’re together." Laughter surrounded him then, but Derrick did not laugh. He looked closely at Finn, as if trying to find a hint of his true feelings.

Her Siblings are suspicious and angry, half her team is dead, Tier is wreaking death and destruction, Lucan is holding his secrets close, and she is spiraling out of control. There is only one partnership that matters anymore – only one person she will trust and take direction from – and only one way out of the Hell she’s been sentenced to. Junco is tired of fighting and death. She’s had enough and this time she means to end it – once and for all. Junco is tired of fighting and death.

EXCERPT The last time I was here in Subjack's tunnels pops back into my mind. The day I met Gideon again after being separated for years, back when I was still tucking down those memories. He was acting the same way with me then, exasperated with my detached attitude."—I don't want you to start any shit in here, got it?" "Why would I start shit, Gid? I'm not a complete psychopath." He stares down at me, his eyes darting back and forth as he searches mine, then blinks and straightens up. "OK, whatever then. No scenes." I shrug. Why would I create a scene? The biometrics on the door are triggered by someone on the other side and it slips open with a perfunctory whoosh. When I look into the new room, Tier is staring down at me and I lunge at him, clasping my hands around his throat. "You asshole, how dare you come here!" More words are spewing out of my mouth, 'fuck' mostly, 'bastard' and 'dickhead' put in several appearances, and then we're wrestling on the ground. I've got my foot wrapped around his neck and he's trying to grab my hands as Gideon pulls on me. I swing back with an elbow and crack Gid hard in the chin and he growls. My pretty flower dress is picking up little dust bunnies and all sorts of other debris as we roll around on the floor but I could give a shit. "How dare you," I growl as I lean down into Tier's ear. "How dare you show your face to me again!" "Junco!" he commands me as he squirms. "Calm the fuck down! That's an order!" I wriggle out of his grip and swing my foot around, slap him in the face with it, and then flip over and crack him once in the neck. "Fuck you and your orders, you prick." His hands scramble to grab me by the waist, then slip up my dress and I remember I'm hiding something. Something he's not supposed to know about. I stop my struggle for a brief moment, hoping his hands will stop, but they don't. They slide right up and find my secret. And then he lets go and pushes me off him.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label). She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.
