ANGELBORN

Rerelease COMING SOON

High school is all about boy meets girl, girl gets demon mark, and girl finds out she’s half-angel. At least that’s how it is for Ginny Gracehurst.


Sixteen year olds have a lot going on in their lives, and Ginny is no exception. Grades, homework, pimples, oh and now the sudden appearance of a demon mark. And discovering her father, who she thought was dead, is actually the great angel Grace. Who is very much alive.


With unforeseen powers growing, she has to figure out who she really is. While also staying out of the reach of a powerful half demon who is hell-bent on bending her to his will. The Alliance, an organization that is supposed to help people like her, is threatened by her potential gifts. They are more invested in their own hierarchy than in upholding their divine mandate. It’s up to her and a new friend, Aiden, to protect not just herself, but the ones she loves.

HEAVENFIRE

Rerelease COMING SOON

A divine sword, magic tomes, and uncontrolled power. Can 16-year-old Ginny Gracehurst keep them from an obsessed half-demon?

After retrieving the only thing that could set Jacob’s demon father free, half-angel Ginny has a new mission. She and Aiden are charged with collecting the Eternal Tomes, which teach how to use sigils in the Angelic Tongue.

They are in a race against Jacob and his minions, who can travel anywhere in a matter of seconds. Allowing demonkind to learn those sigils would spell disaster for them all. In order to get what he wants, Jacob needs one more thing besides the Tomes—Ginny herself.

DEMONKIND

Rerelease COMING SOON

Just because you slay a powerful half-demon, doesn’t mean you are free of him. 


After a long struggle, Ginny and the Alliance are finally free of the threat of Jacob and his changeling minions. His influence still lingers, though. In whispers and rumors throughout the Alliance and those members who have split from them in their time of need. And in his most devout servant, Marta, who will stop at nothing to bring Jacob back. They know how to travel between Earth and Perdition. And they know just how to stop the angelborn. By removing the angel himself.


Full out war has been declared, and everyone must choose a side in this final showdown.

HALF BLOOD ALLIANCE

Rerelease COMING SOON

Bree Gracie’s life is changing fast, as she knew it would. Just turned sixteen, she will be moving into the Alliance house with the other angelborn trainees. She’s been preparing for this day her entire life. Having an angel for a father meant she always knew what her job would be: keep the humans safe from demons and their spawn.
Despite all this, she’s not ready when magical attacks start happening across the Midwest. Her angelic powers of dreamwalking, paired with help from a human mage she meets, and her fellow Alliance members, will all be needed to save the world from demonkind.

ABOUT ME

Unveiling the Writer

20200305_162746%20(1)_edited.jpg

JK Allen wrote her first story when she first learned how to write and hasn’t looked back since. Common writing themes that can be found in her work address identity, everyday magic, and the type of strength that can be found in ordinary people. She is the author of the Angelborn series and is currently working on a new series in the same universe, but with a new generation of characters. Her reading tastes are as varied as the genres she enjoys writing, from Jane Austen to Diana Wynne Jones. When she’s not writing, you can find her painting, drawing, or lost in another world between the pages of a book. Or on TikTok. She is the former Head Editor and President of Three Furies Press.
