Tiamat is a demon god from Earth now banished to a world full of magic and dragon. Lucky for him, his dragon form is a six-headed dragon. The magic here is not like on Earth, it comes from dragons, not from souls.

To be a god on this world, he must learn how to harness the power of the dragons. So, pretending to be less than he is, he joins the Magesterium to train as a mage. He masters this ability easily but is paired with a dragon who was once a human. Her dragon mate has died and if he doesn’t pair with her, the other dragons will kill her.

Her magic is weak, but Tiamat can fix that. He can show this world that the dragons banished from their clans can find a new purpose, just like him. Until his past catches up and demons from Earth arrive to take a soul from Tiamat that they feel is theirs. Turns out, necromancy is easy to do on this world and the other demons have no qualms about using it.

To defeat the other demons, Tiamat must give up the new life he’s found, and become the god he was destined to be.

This story is told from multiple viewpoints and is available in both an all-ages friendly adaptation (Mage & Magic) and the original (Mages and Mates) which has a heavier focus on romance.

New mages and dragons become trusted allies, while others are lost. Neo, a water dragon, despises elves and undead, yet vows to help Tiamat in order to protect his clan.

This gold must be acquired and kept safe at all costs, even if it means asking the elves for help.

This story is told from multiple viewpoints and is available in both an all-ages friendly adaptation (Mage & Magic) and the original (Mages and Mates) which has a heavier focus on romance.

Interview with Nina R. Schluntz

    Have you read anything that made you think differently about fiction?

    The closest experience I have had to this, is when I started feeling bad for all the antagonists in the stories. The abusive boyfriend or villain never gets a happy ending. Other characters get to undergo change and become better people, but never the bad guys. So, in my stories, I try to create characters who might be viewed as the bad guy, and they get a happy resolution too.

    How do you select the names of your characters?

    For this book, I actually used the names of characters in World of Warcraft. Not actual Blizzard characters, but the characters I created in the video game. So Gruillie is actually a shaman goblin that I play in WoW. Heista is a pandaran priestess.

    Do you hide any secrets in your books that only a few people will find?

    Yes! If you’ve read all my books, you’ll notice a few carryover bits. I have one character, Norman, who makes a cameo in nearly all my novels. He’s just this guy in the background, refilling the vending machine. One of my book series, Gods of Earth, covers his species, so you learn they are a bit like gods, so he can appear in any realm or reality I create.

    Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book?

    For the Mages Series, the main storyline does tie all the books together. I know fans don’t like cliffhangers and I try to avoid them, but this series ended up with them. Luckily, I released all the books close to each other so you don’t have to worry about waiting. It’s a three book series, and they are all out. Though, the characters are going to appear in other novels.

    What were your goals and intentions in this book, and how well do you feel you achieved them?

    These books had two main goals. The first was to use the different species in fantasy novels as a means to show how one culture’s evil is considered good to another. The elves hunt and consume dragons, but they use every bit of their body. To them, the dragons are just animals. But then, the dragons, who are intelligent, view the elves are barbaric people living in jungles. Every race, goblins, humans, dragons, mermaids, and so on, are using the other races to get what they need.

    The second goal, was to create an all-ages friendly version of the story. I wrote my original erotica, nothing held back story, then revised it to be all-ages friendly. It was harder than I thought, and based on how it goes, I might do it for future novels. If you want a good laugh, I’d suggest reading both versions. When you realize what the dice games really are, you can’t help but snicker.

    What inspired you to write the Mages Series?

    I read a shape-shifting story about dragons, but it was focused heavily on romance. The typical, a dragon comes to a village and a woman is sacrificed to them as a breeding partner. The whole time I was reading it, I kept thinking the author had really limited their audience by putting so much erotica content in it. Because lots of kids would have enjoyed the story, had it been less focused on sex. Hence, my writing of a story that is both!

    Can you tell us a little bit about the next books in the Mage Series or what you have planned for the future?

    I’ll be writing some other stories for a bit, but eventually I’ll return to these characters and give Tiamat another adventure. He’ll be returning in another story, as a creature with six heads but he’s no longer a dragon!
