The Steel Harvest

Aligning with a scavenging party out of Boston, Carter sets out on another scrap job. Their goal: the wreckage of a transport carrier from The Shell, a planetary exoskeleton surrounding the planet. There he meets Silvia, the sole survivor of the wreck and daughter of a powerful royal family residing upon the exoskeleton.

Without warning, Carter and Silvia are forced to flee from their former allies, working together just to stay alive. They head west in the hopes of returning Silvia to her home in the sky. However, as greed and betrayal threatens to send them to their graves, these two strangers are put to the ultimate test.

Volume One of The Steel Harvest Series by J.D. Miller.

bones

Empire of Bones 

Commander Jared Mertz, the bastard son of the emperor, and his half-sister, Princess Kelsey, barely speak to one another. To their dismay, their father seizes an opportunity to change that and sends them on a dangerous quest to explore the fallen Empire.

Separated from home by an impassable gulf and struggling to redefine their relationship, they find themselves thrust into a vicious war. Unless they work together to stop the Empire’s deadly legacy, billions face a horrific fate.

I read a near-finished version of Empire of Bones voluntarily to help the author see if everything was ship-shape (known as a beta read, kind of like a beta for a game or early screening for a movie). I am not the author’s neighbor, brother, father, uncle, father’s uncle’s brother, or a paid for reviewer from Indonesia.

Why I say this is Amazon *will not* flag me as a ‘verified purchaser’ of Empire of Bones, but I assure you I read this and did so with a *critical eye* — hell, that was my job as a beta reader!

Empire of Bones was the first space opera type story I had read in a while and it got me excited about the genre again. There is nothing quite like the mysteries of open space and the dangers of what’s around the ‘corner’ at the next, unexplored, jump point.

Exploration, mystery, derelict craft, and some nasty bad-guys make for a tight book, but more importantly, the characters make it sing. I found myself taken in by the plight of Jared Mertz — being the bastard son of an emperor ain’t easy — and his half-sister Princess Kelsey as they get involved in old mysteries (what happened to the old empire, where the hell are we, why is that ship trying to blow us up) and take what could be a one way trip to a forgotten part of space.

The pace is right on — meet new people, spend some time with them, and then off they go to see new places. Gets hot’n’heavy by the midpoint and then wraps up with a bang. No wasted passages of meaningless drivel here. Every word advances the people or the plot, and when the space-dookie hits the warp-fan, you will feel like you know the characters. And there is little better than watching characters you like kick some rear when the time for rear-kicking comes!

In the end, if space exploration, the search for an ancient and collapsed empire of man, solid characters, and some good ‘splody action bits is your thing, you will do well to give this a read.

gloom

For the old gods have returned to cleanse the earth, and their revenge will be swift and merciless.

welcome

Welcome to Town 

Will Walker is a drifter who finds himself stuck. He’s trapped in Town, an impossible place ripped from 1920s small-town America and dropped into a nightmare. Monstrous beasts attack Town’s citizens, while the people fight for survival and to maintain the semblance of normalcy they’ve struggled to create.

As Will grapples with his world turned upside down, he must figure out where he fits in or find a way out of Town. Soon he’s thrust into the unlikely role of hero, with the lives of new friends hanging in the balance. But between the secrets and the power struggles, Will begins to wonder which horrors are worse: the monsters outside of Town, or the darker forces at work within.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone who has ever enjoyed the Outer Limits, Twilight Zone, or really any science fiction or fantasy, and even if you don’t consider yourself a fan of those genres, give it a look, because its quality defies genre stereotypes, as does its content.

I am seriously looking forward to more by this guy (author).

New Megiddo Rising: An ‘Apostates’ Novella

Fast-forward several centuries and America has become New Megiddo, a theocracy run by the Schrubb Administration, where order is kept using the technology of the [Virtue-Net] to feed the Reverend Wilhelm Wainwright’s sermons to the minds of the people. In the slums, the humble beginnings of an insurgency of Apostates take shape. The cruel and clueless policies of the Church of New Megiddo and the ruling Regime push the disenfranchised masses one step closer to all-out rebellion.

Author Lars Teeney has created a fascinating dystopian world of religious control that is reminiscent of Orwell’s “1984.” Major cities are now mostly slums that are filled with starvation and fear, but the country relies on a controlling, inept president and his pious Deacons who rule with assassins that are poised and ready to stop anyone who goes against them.

This was a gripping novella that featured some brilliant scenarios and a number of entertaining characters—particularly Evan, the boxer. The descriptions are vivid and pulled me into the world of New Megiddo. The writing is evenly-paced and flows very well and dialogue is natural-sounding and helps build the plot nicely. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves dystopian fiction and alternate history.

Homeostasis Lost

As the reality of what has happened comes to light, they begin to leave their homes, some in search of answers, others in desperate need of help. People around them are dying, planes are crashing, riots are forming, and no one can do anything about it.

The three eventually cross paths and head into an uncertain future together in hopes of again finding balance—homeostasis—in this new world without power. That is, if they can survive.

Perhaps one of my favorite things that the author did here was the very minimal use of description. It just wasn’t needed. Character development was absolutely perfectly timed from one chapter to the next, and unlike the numerous series I’ve read, this one didn’t leave me with a feeling that I had to have more. Like a well placed meal, Homeostasis Lost left me feeling satisfactorily full and pleased. I look forward to reading other novels by this author.

For five years, Charlotte (Charlie) Holloway has lived as a boy in the slums. But when one theft too many gets her arrested, her only means of escape lies with a dead man. Charlie hasn’t raised a spirit since she first discovered she could do so five years ago. That time, her father banished her. This time, she brings even more trouble upon herself.

People are now hunting Charlie all over London, but only one man succeeds in capturing her.

Lincoln Fitzroy is the mysterious head of a secret organization on the trail of a madman who needs a necromancer to control his newly “made” creatures. There was only one known necromancer in the world – Charlotte – but now there appears to be two. Lincoln captures the willful Charlie in the hopes the boy will lead him to Charlotte. But what happens when he discovers the boy is in fact the young woman he’s been searching for all along? And will she agree to work for the man who held her against her will, and for an organization she doesn’t trust?

Because Lincoln and his ministry might be just as dangerous as the madman they’re hunting.

“How did you die?”

I turned my head. The girl couldn’t have been more than seven. She had light brown hair held back in a ponytail. Her nose was dusted with light freckles, her cheeks as well, only not as densely as the freckles on her nose. She waited a second for my response, then said, “I went into diabetic shock.”

I nodded, like this wasn’t the craziest thing I’d ever heard.

She continued, “I have an uncle here. Uncle Trent. He died in a car crash when I was five. I’m supposed to go live with him I guess.”

She wrinkled her nose. I had a feeling she didn’t like Uncle Trent. Maybe Uncle Trent was like my Uncle Bill. Maybe Uncle Trent liked to make up stories after ten cans of Miller High Life, then get pissed off when you told him he was full of shit.

“So how did you die?” She came again.

This was the hundredth time I’d been posed that question in three days. How did you die? It was yet to lose its level of absurdity. In three days, there hadn’t been many answers, only promises that in time everything would make sense. The only answer, the only definitive that anyone would share, the only time anyone would look you directly in the eye was when you asked them if you died.

They wouldn’t waver, they wouldn’t blink, they would only nod their head and say, “Yes.”

Majesty’s Offspring 

General Hugo Valdez
United Earth Parliament (UEP) Planetary Infantry Corps
January 2074

More than a century ago, UEP Captain Julius Verndock helped end a galactic war with Majesty—the first truly living machine, thanks to manmade artificial intelligence. For decades, Majesty and humanity had lived together in harmony, with mankind reaping the benefits of a world free of disease, famine, and even aging.

But when Majesty decided she wanted to “birth” her own A.I. offspring creation, a joint interplanetary military effort fought and finally defeated her, then eradicated all existing artificial intelligence … or so they thought.

Today, in 2213, Julius Verndock is still a captain—but now he’s the commander of the Sea Wolf, a spaceship used to advance its crew’s life of piracy. As Julius and his business partner, Laina Edwards, begin to each think about leaving the pirate life behind, their hopes for a peaceful retirement are shattered … by an A.I. being who calls herself Chorus and claims to be the “daughter” of Majesty.

With universal uproar over the discovery of A.I. and the danger it poses, Julius and the rest of the Sea Wolf contingent have no one to trust—but Chorus, and she insists that she wants only peace between mankind and herself.

Hunted by warring factions—and an even greater, more mysterious threat—Julius, Laina, and their colorful crew of fellow pirates must protect Chorus or risk letting her fall into the wrong hands to unleash galactic Armageddon.

_____________________________________________________

If you haven’t read any of this series you’ll find that following along in Human Plus is no problem and just as fun as if you have read any or all of the series. This book can stand by itself easily and not leave a new reader confused, my guess is you’d wind up getting the other installments after reading this, it’s really a fun read. That’s what I think anyway.

If you’ve read any of David Simpsons other books you know his ‘bad guys’ are really truly bad, this book is no different. The villian in Human Plus is as bad as they come and the ‘good guys’ are great people that are fun to be around and characters I’ll miss for a day or three now that I’m finished with this latest installment. I hope he’s working on book five right now cause it csn’t come soon enough.

i definitely recommend this book and the whole series, it’s fun in many ways. The story, the action, the ideas that science may bring some day, all fun stuff. Have fun if you do try it, I sure did.

moon

The Moon at Noon 

A door in time. A visitor from the future. A girl determined to save the boy she loves.

The third book in the mind-twisting dystopian time travel series, ‘The House Next Door’

Mathew Erlang travels north through an England overrun by violence and sickness. Accompanied by a new friend, he finally makes it to his grandmother’s house, but all is not as it seems in this childhood place of safety. Meanwhile, Clara makes an uncanny pact with Mathew’s peculiar neighbour and finally learns the truth about Mr. Lestrange.

When I read the first book in a series and love it, I am typically disappointed in the follow-ups. Even those that get made into high budget movies. Yet I refuse to lose hope that there will be an author who can deliver a trilogy of consistent imagination and quality. Congratulations to Jule Owen. From the first revelations in The Boy Who Fell from the Sky to the final ones in The Moon at Noon, I was enthralled.

First, her vision of the future is absolutely clear in her mind and vividly rendered. Few SF novels have seemed so possible to me a real future arc. The combination and contrast of advanced technologies with a new social order and politics driven by extreme climate change seem more relevant than anything else I have recently read. As I read the books, I watched news pieces of both war and climate change that made the books seem eerily prescient.

Second, each book held more of the new, even within the schema set out in the original book. Credit Jule with creating a rich enough environment that she was always able to use that structure to create and reveal things that were novel to the reader.

Third, the final book came with revelations that were intricately woven through the first two. The plots of these books were not made up as they went along. From start to finish, this trilogy felt like a single well-conceived book.

Fourth, there are complexities that arise from the plot (especially in this third book) that made my head swim a little. Jule handles these moments deftly. She is a smart writer, giving a smart product that has a measure cleverness without being smug.

Well done. I hope to read more from Jule Owen.

The New Earth

In 2132, The New World Order designated the Moon Base the official prison for New Earth. Over the next three years, all the prisons in New Earth were emptied, and the inmates sent to the moon. Only 63% of the inmates survived the voyage. The decision to move New Earth’s prison system to the moon was made for two reasons: first, it freed up critical space on the planet’s surface for housing developments and industrial facilities; second, moving dangerous criminals to the moon would keep the population of New Earth safer.

In 2139, The New World Order passed a law designed to deter criminals from ever committing a crime. Not only would the criminal be sent to the Moon Penitentiary, but their entire family – parents, and siblings, or spouse and children, depending on the age of the convicted person – would be sent along with them.

The planet has changed since the New World Order has taken over. Following a nuclear war, these are the days of the new millennium, with neurotic rules and harsh penalties.

After Seventeen-year-old Garth Haston sneaks off with friends one night, the results are disastrous. He is behind the wheel and causes an accident he flees from. The consequences are swift for a hit-and-run. His younger sister, Rushell, and his hard-working parents, air ambulance driver, Dirk, and ER nurse, Rita, are sentenced to twenty years in a sprawling prison system on the moon. Separated, with letters being their only form of communication, the dark reality of their new life slowly sinks in.

Soren Zolnai, the director of the prison, taunts Dirk in the cruelest of ways. As days pass, Dirk realizes how vulnerable he and his family are. He is in a terrifying predicament–trapped in space, miles from home, with his wife and daughter vulnerably exposed to unimaginable threats.

A compassionate guard shows an interest in Dirk, bringing him books and a message. After two months in the Lunar Penitentiary, Dirk is sure of one thing–he can’t serve twenty years, he won’t survive Soren’s cruelty and neither will his family.

Trapped with thousands of other prisoners, the walls between Dirk and his family become a brutal reminder that the rules of civilized society don’t apply. Dirk is forced to ask himself if he has what it takes to change their fate. Does he have the strength and the means to rescue his family?

Set in the not-too-distant future, full of sympathetic characters rife with tangible emotions, The New Earth is the first book in an original science fiction dystopian series entitled “The Moon Penitentiary” by author Nick Langenberg.

If you are a fan of science fiction adventure with plenty of twist and turns then you will love this exciting collection of science fiction short reads – the very best science fiction in kindle store. Also available as a science fiction paperback.

Dragonlands, Books 1 – 3: Hidden, Hunted, and Retribution

USA Today Best-seller!

Enter the world of Dragonlands with the first three novels from this bestselling epic fantasy series.

Includes:

Hidden:
The mystery enshrouding Hutton’s Bridge is as impenetrable as the fog that descended at its borders eighty years ago. Each year, three villagers enter the mist searching for answers. No one ever returns.

Then a dragon falls from the sky to the town square, dead—the first glimpse of an outside world that has become nothing more than a fairy tale to Hutton’s Bridge. Except to Tressa.

Tressa grew up with Granna’s stories of the days before the fog fell. When Granna dies, leaving Tressa without any family, Tressa ventures into the fog herself, vowing to unravel the foul magic holding Hutton’s Bridge captive.

What she discovers beyond the fog endangers the lives of everyone she loves.

Hunted:
The fog that trapped the people of Hutton’s Bridge for eighty years has disappeared, but now so have the villagers.

Fearing the worst, Tressa and Bastian must navigate a new and dangerous world in search of their people. Among their allies are a healer, a warrior, and even a dragon–but their enemies are far greater.

Hutton’s Bridge has long protected a powerful secret, one the dragonlords will kill to control. As the realms rise, Tressa and Bastian risk everything to save their people, until one must make the ultimate sacrifice.

Retribution:
Tensions are mounting in the Dragonlands. The dragon hordes are mustering, each with its own agenda. But Tressa must conquer her personal demons before answering the call to war.

Gravely ill, her body undergoing mysterious and frightening changes, she travels to a distant land for the answers crucial to her survival. What she discovers rocks her to the core.

As the battle begins, a long-slumbering magic–dark, powerful, and brutal–awakens. And Tressa learns the ones you love most can become your greatest enemies of all.

BREAKERS (Book 1)

In New York, Walt Lawson is about to lose his girlfriend Vanessa. In Los Angeles, Raymond and Mia James are about to lose their house. Within days, none of it will matter. A plague tears across the world, reducing New York to an open grave and LA to a chaotic wilderness of violence and fires. Civilization comes to an abrupt stop.

Just as the survivors begin to adapt to the aftermath, Walt learns the virus that ended humanity wasn’t created by humans. It was inflicted from outside. The colonists who sent it are ready to finish the job–and Earth’s survivors may be too few and too weak to resist.

Ness and Shawn take to the mountains to fight a guerrilla against the attackers. In California, Tristan and Alden are taken prisoner. Separated from her brother, Tristan crosses the ruins of America to track him down. She will stop at nothing to get Alden back–but her fellow survivors prove even more dangerous than the monsters who broke the world.

After two years alone, she’s found and adopted by a fisherman and his wife. Their makeshift family lives a quiet life–until a man named Karslaw sails in from Catalina Island with an army of conquerors. Driven by visions of empire, he executes Raina’s new father as a traitor and takes her mother captive.

time

The Time Travel Trailer

Nortman’s historical facts are weaved beautifully throughout the story and ground it in time – we get information about happenings, court cases, and events we’ve likely heard about before. The story is told through short, easily digestible chapters; you can pick it up, read a few chapters, quickly do what you have to do, and jump right back in without having to thumb through to see how many pages the next chapter has so you can decide if you have time to start reading. As I read, I was continuously curious about what Lynne and Dinah would find and in what year they would find themselves placed.

The story is told through Lynne’s and Dinah’s point of view (Lynne’s in first person and Dinah’s in third) in no-particular-order alternating chapters or chapter groups. After the first few chapters from Dinah’s point of view, I wasn’t sure of the purpose of the alternating viewpoints and wondered if it would add to the story. As the story unfolded, however, I learned how Dinah’s unique perspective fit in and I can’t think of a way the author could’ve handled it differently.

“The Time Travel Trailer,” in addition to providing an interesting history lesson, develops into a double mystery – what happens along the way and what happened with the trailer’s original owner. As mentioned above, during the first approximate one-third of the book, I wondered where the story was going, but then the suspense picked up, keeping me turning the pages and reading “just one more chapter” before putting it down for the night. Nortman doesn’t disappoint in her mystery writing ability, either; the end provides a satisfying conclusion.

“The Time Travel Trailer” was a great read. It had good suspense that pulled me through the story. This book would be great for those who enjoy camping, time-travel stories, mysteries, or history. It’s enjoyable on many levels.

What readers are saying:

“This book deserves a movie”

“I’ll carry this book’s memory into all other books as an expectation to be met”

“A real gem in the Apocalypse genre!”

Three years have passed since the Jamaicans caused the apocalypse, and things in post-Armageddon Chicago have settled into a new kind of normal. Unfortunately, that “normal” includes collapsing skyscrapers, bands of bloodthirsty maniacs, and a dwindling cache of survival supplies. After watching his family, friends, and most of the non-sadistic elements of society crumble around him, Patrick decides it’s time to cross one last item off his bucket list.

He’s going to Disney World.

This hilarious, heartfelt, gut-wrenching odyssey through post-apocalyptic America is a pilgrimage peppered with peril, as fellow survivors Patrick and Ben encounter a slew of odd characters, from zombie politicians and deranged survivalists to a milky-eyed oracle who doesn’t have a lot of good news.

Space Carrier Avalon

Avalon was the flagship of the Castle Federation in the last war, now twenty years past. The first of the deep space carriers, no other warship in the fleet holds as many honors or has recorded as many kills.

No other warship in the fleet is as old.

Accepting the inevitable, the Federation Space Navy has decided to refit her and send her on a tour of the frontier, showing the flag to their allies and enemies as a reminder of her glory – and then decommission her for good.

But Avalon has been a backwater posting for ten years – and has problems a mere refit can’t fix. The systems along her planned tour have been seeing pirates for the first time in decades, and there are rumblings of Commonwealth scouting ships all along the border.

It may be Avalon’s final tour – but it looks to be anything but quiet!

  • High entertainment value yet provocative, original, and straight from Mencius’ ‘unbearing mind’.

_____________________________________________________

Understand that I am an older fan and read books by authors the likes of Norton, McCaffery and Heinlein to name just a few. I don’t often find books I will read as eagerly. I just read this book in one day, one sitting and recommend you begin on a weekend for the same reason.

Follow life into the future. It builds on technology we currently have and takes flight. Our potential is unlimited. Humanity has reached a level of life with a division in belief, technology that allows advances in human life but some who are absolutely opposed to interference with life in the body. They have developed tech to a point where computers are so powerful they assist in everything. The universe is opening to us.

Please give this series a try. Start at the first book for full understanding. Mr Simpson writes in such a manner that you can see the story unfold in your minds eye. This is a complete book but you will enjoy it so much more with the history of the previous books. This book begins in the middle of the lives of those involved in the story. I think you will enjoy it.

Forager

Twenty-year-old Ethan Jones lives in a post apocalyptic, oppressive society that terminates anyone with mutations caused by nuclear radiation in an effort to keep the human race pure. Because of that, he lives every day in fear for his life, for he has an incredible mutation that gives him an edge when foraging in Melbourne’s ruins. An edge he uses to survive encounters with the vile Skel savages who roam those ruins.

His life becomes complicated when he rescues a mysterious Japanese girl from the Skel and brings her back with him, for she breaks the town’s rigid conventions in her pursuit of him, placing their lives in jeopardy. Her odd behaviour and probing questions baffle him, as does the fact that he understands her when she speaks in Japanese.

At the same time, the Skel ramp up their attacks on the foraging teams. Is this part of a larger plan that could spell the town’s doom? And why do the Skel suddenly possess advanced technology – who is backing them, and why?

Keeping his mutation secret, uncovering the girl’s true intentions and trying to save the town all vie for Ethan’s attention. And if he fails, not only his life, but the lives of all, are at stake.

Fire War

Gunnery Sergeant Anthony Jackson is the model Marine: highly trained, absolutely efficient, and unquestioningly dedicated to his country. The only thing he can conceive of putting before his nation is his family, his wife Courtney and two daughters Maya and MacKenzie. Conscripted into the personal security detail of President Meyers, he begins to get glimpses that not everyone is as content with the current situation as he is, but attributes this to terrorist agitation and fringe lunacy. When his older daughter Maya begins to question the creeping erosion of personal liberties and the revoking of democratic rights, however, he begins to fear for her safety, as well as his own and that of his family. In a climate in which entire families disappear due to minor offenses, one can’t be too careful.

The tensions between liberty and safety, between family and country, will force Jackson to rethink all his beliefs, and lead to a collision with the system he has dedicated his life to serving.

Fire War is a suspenseful, gripping and unnerving examination of the paradoxes of power, the price of liberty, and the dictates of conscience. The world you live in will never look the same again.

space

The Space Between

Aliens. They always attack when you least expect it. Although if we knew our history we would’ve expected these ones. But the truth about human history has been long forgotten, dismissed as mere myth and legend.

Not that Kim McLean really cares about the details. All she knows is that one minute she was wondering what a medieval hot dog might have been filled with, and the next she was beating aliens over the head with a mace. Now it’s up to her alone to end this war. Well, just her, an elf, a crazy dwarf and a Wonderbra.

The Space Between is the first volume in a 4 book series (all of which are available). It draws on myths and legends of ancient Earth, weaving a tale that moves from Sherwood Forest to distant worlds and outer space. It involves, amongst other things, magical gateways, Area 51, Sherwood Forest, sentient spacecraft, a 50 thousand year old intergalactic war, Machu Picchu and strong coffee.

Girl From Above: Betrayal 

Read the bestselling, fast-paced, science fiction series, readers are comparing to Firefly & Ex_Machina!

After Captain Caleb Shepperd escapes from prison, all he wants to do is keep his head down and earn a living smuggling guns and drugs through the nine systems. But, when a synth known as #1001 stows away on the captain’s ship, bringing with her a ton of problems—including guilt-ridden secrets he thought he’d left behind—he’d prefer to toss her out the airlock. The problem is, she’s priceless tech and he’s fresh out of credit.

#1001 is no ordinary synth. She’s programmed to kill. While human memories of murder and betrayal riddle her synthetic systems with faults, she’s thinking only of revenge.

For Captain Shepperd, there’s nowhere left to hide.

From the bestselling author of the Veil Series comes an action packed story of love, redemption, and revenge.

Pippa DaCosta captures the grit and realism of her urban fantasy stories and injects it—along with some down-and-dirty passion—into the sci-fi genre.

Novel length: Approximately 43,000 words. 177 paperback pages.
Genre: Space opera.

  • Harsh reality, a little magic and a lot of imagination …  
  • A good ear for dialogue and writes convincing sex scenes (no easy feat!)
  • Fantastic fight scenes – realistic, engaging and entrancing!
  • High entertainment value yet provocative, original, and straight from Mencius’ ‘unbearing mind’.
  • Touches of the reality we all share, the reality that so often disappoints and dismays us, abound. I love the underlying thesis, that satisfying though instant authoritative intervention may be, human solutions demand involvement and time, and break the heart.

life

Double Life

Since she was a little girl, everyone – from her father to the Great Creator himself – told Lyssa Peate the same thing: she’s worthless. But when she becomes the pirate bounty hunter Razia, she can see the price tag on her own head. Employed by one of the four pirate syndicates, she uses bank transactions and her considerable wits to capture rival members. At least, she would be if Razia’s boss ever gave her a chance. It’s a man’s world, and all she’s allowed to hunt are purse snatchers while she languishes on probation.

To pay the bills, she’s stuck in her old life as Lyssa, discovering and analyzing distant planets and selling them for cash. She’s doing just enough to stay out of trouble, pretending to be continuing her father’s mysterious research while away for long periods of time. Her slimy boss is always asking questions and even assigns one of her younger brothers, Vel, to intern with her. Already struggling to keep the balance between her double lives, she tries everything to rid herself of the kid…

…until the universal police mistake Lyssa’s intern for Razia’s hostage.

Obsidian 

Except Aspen.

While most people avoid the national parks because of the resident dragons, Aspen spends most of her free time in search of the feared and misunderstood creatures. For her, studying the dragons is a way to escape a painful past and avoid getting too close to anyone.

She’d rather track dragons in the wild and through the lens of her camera than talk to real people. But then Aspen meets a hot new guy at school, Sid King. He’s the one person she’s ever met who shares her obsession with all things dragon. But even as she feels strangely drawn to the mysterious boy, she senses he’s hiding his own set of dark and powerful secrets.

When hikers start turning up dead in the park, everyone suspects the formidable predators. Unless Aspen can prove their innocence, every one of her beloved dragons is in danger of eradication.

After Aspen and Sid uncover a sinister plot behind the brutal attacks, Aspen can no longer deny that Sid somehow knows more about the deaths than he should and the secrets they both keep threaten to rip their lives apart forever.

lost

Grace Lost

The fine blue mist was impossible to see falling from the night sky. It coated everything in its path: houses, cars, toys left in yards by children, the ground. By sunrise, it would be impossible to detect. The veil of toxic substance was thin, but it was enough to do the harm for which it was intended. Anyone unlucky enough to be outside at the time of contamination would die. The airplanes that flew that night would be some of the last.

The darkness of night would give way to morning light, as it always had. People would awake in search of a lazy weekend breakfast. Mothers would begin preparing children for a day of play. Dogs would whine to go outside. The dead would rise.

Zoe’s been on her own since she was a teenager, when tragedy took her family. Living in a remote small town, she withdrew from society. Her longtime friend, Adam Boggs, left her even more broken when he left for college and stopped answering her calls and letters. When he’s back in town for a visit, they attempt to reconcile. The next morning brings an end to life as they knew it.

Fleeing for safety, they soon cross paths with other survivors. It doesn’t take long until they realize that the dead are not the only things to fear.

Book one of the Grace Series. Intended for mature audiences. A portion of all proceeds of this series will be donated to Strong Against Cancer – helping find a cure for childhood cancer.

emp

EMP

EMP is the dramatic story of one man and his struggle for survival in a world that is falling apart.

This story projects and depicts the realities of having to deal with the hardships within a small community when the luxuries of life were stripped from them in the middle of the night. It focuses only on one community, yet implies the rest of the nation is no better off. There are dangers that have to be dealt with, but more on the commonsense level.

The author presents numerous characters who are weaved throughout the story. Some strong, some weak, but all molded together to combine a story of excitement, necessity, and survival. This was a very well written book, obviously edited…making it a smooth flow of a read. This is one of those stories where one cannot over analyze or compare to the more hardcore violent apocalyptic books that are out there. The premise of this story is how the citizens of one town come together, work together and survived together. Yes, there is loss of life, sorrow and emotional moments, but there are also moments and times of laughter, joy, happiness and contentment. A nice even mixture of both perspectives which tells a story of human frailty and strengths.

I really enjoyed the slowed down pace of this book…it was refreshing.

The Purge of Babylon: A Novel of Survival 

Start the series for FREE for a LIMITED TIME.

________________________________________

ONE NIGHT. THAT WAS ALL IT TOOK.

Creatures that once lived in the shadows, hidden from humankind, have risen, spreading like a plague across the globe over the course of a single night. Their numbers growing exponentially through infection, these seemingly unkillable creatures have swallowed up whole cities and collapsed unprepared governments.

Survivors call it The Purge.

Against all odds, a disparate group of survivors has emerged from that blood-soaked night that devastated the planet and reduced humanity to an endangered species. Among the survivors are two ex-Army Rangers, a businesswoman, and a third-year medical student. But surviving The Purge was one thing – staying alive is another matter entirely.

Hope exists in the countryside, in the form of a self-sustaining underground facility designed to withstand any calamity. But in order to reach its safety, the survivors must travel hundreds of treacherous miles, with the night – and the creatures that dwell within it – always at their backs.

The rules are simple: stay out of the dark, load up on silver bullets, and whatever you do, stay alive.
The road to salvation has begun …

The Refugee 

“Hartman shows us great character development, solid plotting, and a good grasp of science.”-K.L. Roberts

“In a genre that tends to be dated and full of formula-driven cliches, this book is a welcome change.” -Amazon reader

Barely a few months into a 3-year mission, Starship Cornelia unexpectedly stumbles upon a disabled ship whose 10 alien passengers are found dead. The ship hails from Korvalis, the mysterious non-Alliance planet whose leadership allows no outsider to visit and no citizen to leave. But the tides shift when Cornelia‘s Chief Medical Officer and head geneticist discover that one of the escapees is alive, having survived only due to his superior skill with genetics… and that he seeks asylum from Korvalis.

The Refugee, the first book in the Korvali Chronicles trilogy, tells the story of Eshel, the Korvali refugee, and Dr. Catherine Finnegan, the human geneticist who befriends him, as they face the political, scientific, and interpersonal ramifications of Eshel’s living among humans. From censoring of their scientific work to intolerance for Eshel’s cold arrogance, struggles abound… until an alarming incident changes everything.

Last of the Chosen 

Spirit of Empire is a series. Each book is twice as long as a standard novel, so you are getting excellent value along with a great story. Take the plunge – you will not regret it.

The story:

The Empire, hundreds of thousands of civilizations scattered across the galaxy, has been subtly invaded by the Chessori, diminutive creatures wielding a powerful mind weapon. No one can resist this terrible mind weapon, and the war is lost before anyone knows it began.

Ellandra of the Chosen, the youngest and last surviving leader of the Empire, flees the Chessori. In desperation, she lands on a little-known emerging world called Earth where she is rescued by Mike Carver, an innocent bystander. In the process, he discovers that he and the people of Earth are immune to the mind weapon.

Join Mike and Ellandra on their quest to restore the Empire to its former glory. Along the way they will enlist many others, including:

– Otis, a Great Cat, the most lethal Protector in the Empire.

-Jake, a Rider, an intelligent alien mass of protoplasm. If a person could be considered a commodity, Riders would be the single most valuable commodity in the Empire. Unfortunately for Mike, Riders can only survive inside a host body.

-George, a nearly sentient artificial intelligence.

-Krys, a young woman far across the galaxy who receives unwelcome visions of the future. She hears Ellandra’s call, but she is just an orphan. What can she do?

war

The Synchronicity War Part 1

After almost a century of peaceful exploration and colonization of space, the United Earth Space Force stumbles across a shockingly xenophobic alien race that has more and better armed ships and refuses all attempts at contact. As the outgunned Space Force is driven back in battle after battle in what appears to be a war of extermination, one officer experiences precognitive visions that help him blunt the enemy onslaught but he can’t control or predict when they occur.

“144 ships standby! I’m going to try to reestablish communications with the Task Force Leader!” Turning to the Comm Tech, he said. “See if you can raise the Valley Forge again!” While he was waiting for the results of that effort, Chenko rushed onto the Bridge. Shiloh saw her, nodded and pointed to the Helm Station saying.

“XO, take the Con. Lt. Verlander, the XO will be conning the ship from your station! Remain on the Bridge in case I need you! I’ll retain squadron command!” Turning back to the Comm Tech, he said. “Any word from Task Force Leader?” The answer surprised him.

“Sir! I have Yellowjacket’s CO on the line.” Shiloh nodded to him and heard the com channel switch over to a static filled line.

“Shiloh! Valley Forge has been shot to pieces! We were close enough to see it visually on our screens! Who’s in command of the Task Force now?” Shiloh thought fast.

“It’s Mbutu! Does he know about Yakamura?”

“Don’t know! Hanson! Contact Mbutu’s frigate. Notify him that Yakamura’s gone and he’s in command now! Victor, you still there?” Shiloh nodded even though Frank Rolen couldn’t see him.

“Yes, Frank. I’m still here. My squadron is still shaking down to Battle Stations! What’s your squadron’s status?”

“Not good. Dragonfly’s lost all power! Firefly’s not maneuvering anymore either and we can’t raise her! My ship’s suffered a glancing hit! We’re losing fuel and atmosphere but we’re still underway! I want to jump my ships outta here but I also don’t want to jump the gun if Yaka…Mbutu has other plans! Jesus, Victor, where did these bastards come from?”

“I don’t know, Frank, but you can’t afford to wait for Mbutu to give you permission to jump. If your tankers are taken out, NONE of us will get back home!

steal

Stealing Second 

The freedom to defend oneself against all enemies, foreign and domestic, is the very definition of liberty. America’s Founding Fathers went to great lengths to ensure this right wasn’t infringed upon by future lawmakers. Still, to this day, politicians seem determined to undermine that freedom. Once that right is stripped away from the American People, freedom as we know it will cease to exist.

Stealing Second takes a look into future America, an unarmed America, where unmanned drones rule the skies and UN troops police the population. Across the country, detention camps spring up like weeds. Americans are given two weeks to turn in their firearms. But those who believe Americans will easily give up their arms have another thing coming. Washington only succeeds in angering the American People and the country plunges into a second revolutionary war. With the odds stacked heavily against them, Americans fight back to preserve their liberty.

Like many Americans, Gary Smith trusts the government to make his decisions for him. He lives in a world of self-imposed apathy, blissfully ignorant, and determined to remain so. Slowly, the blinders are removed from his eyes. Gary wakes up to find that the world he knows has suddenly changed. Too late, he realizes that he was part of the problem. Desperate to take back what has been stolen from him, Gary joins a group of likeminded individuals in a last-gasp effort to turn back the hands of time.

Powerfully written and uniquely entertaining, this timely tale is a story that begs to be read. However you feel about gun control, whatever side of the proverbial aisle you stand, Stealing Second is an important work of fiction. A plausible scenario that all Americans should consider before allowing our politicians to dismantle the Second Amendment.

People in Season

Agent Mullen is a man tasked with rooting out these dangerous social contaminants. Assigned to the newsroom of Dublin’s most popular media service, he has to be careful when he meets Ava O’Dwyer, a woman who’s prepared to begin a game where seduction, deceit and murder are all fair play…

Winner of the Irish Writers Centre Novel Fair, People in Season by Simon Fay is a darkly compelling tale that you won’t be able to put down.

The writing of People in Season was great — there was wonderful description and I could really feel the tension of what was happening and the fear of the untouched. Fay certainly has a way with words.

The story was told from various points of view and this helped garner sympathy, understanding, or even disdain for different characters.

Fay managed to build a story full of tension that built until the end, with the reader wondering if the crime would be solved — I was certainly wondering if the perpetrator would be caught. There is a certain ‘cat and mouse’ aspect to the book, of the main characters playing a game with each other to see who knows what and who can prove what with a subtlety I haven’t seen in other crime thrillers.

This book was presented to me as having a science fiction twist, which I suppose it does, but it doesn’t really read that way. It takes place in the future, but the only real evidence of that is that people have self driving cars. Overall, I enjoyed the book and was anxious to see how it ended.

The Apostates

New Megiddo has been born out of the ashes of America, an America that has sacrificed liberty for security. Ravaged by environmental disaster and shuttered off from the rest of the world by border fortress walls, and the strict dogma of spiritual leader, The Reverend Wilhelm Wainwright, the people take small comfort from the sermons the Reverend delivers straight to the people’s minds via the [Virtue-Net]. However, the President John W. Schrubb Administration has been losing its grip on power. Murmurs and rumors of a resistance group of Apostates emanate from “Database” dens in the slums, financed by a mysterious source, are said to be scheming to free the people. Will the Apostates strike in time before the Born Again Gathering ushers in a state-induced Armageddon?

The world building here is beyond impressive and does an amazing job of bringing the desolation of this brave new world to life. The setting echos Orwell’s concept of Big Brother though he is delivered via Virtue-Net instead of TV screens, a possibility that’s all too plausible given today’s technological advancements. The ‘Database” news feeds addiction was a very cool twist. In a world where life is stagnant, ‘base’ is the only escape for illicit information. It’s like their version of meth. The originality, strong character development, and unpredictable plot make this make this possibly the best sci-fi book I’ve read this year.

On Silver Wings

by Evan Currie (Author)

 When the Colony on Hayden’s world went black, a team was sent to investigate. It was supposed to be a training mission : skip in, find out the Casimir Transmitter had gone dead, report back and wait for resupply from the Fleet. By the time the only surviving member of the team made landfall, it was spectacularly clear that this wasn’t a training mission.

Now Sgt Sorilla Aida has a job to do. She has to gather the local survivors, recon the enemy, train a militia, and take the war right to the enemy’s doorstep.

Just what she trained for.

De Opresso Liber

I got this within an hour of finishing his last book, Odyssey One. This one kicks Odyssey’s butt! The editing was better this time, though there were a few errors and typos here and there. But seriously, with a story this good, who cares? (OK, I do, but I’m an English teacher.) Mr. Currie has got Clancy’s pacing and enough tech talk to create really fast-paced, interesting storytelling, and he sets up the next books in the series beautifully. I really hope to see the main character again…she’s awesome. Recommend it to your geek friends! Recommend it to your non-geek friends! If this guy quits his day job and writes, all lovers of sci-fi are going to be very, very pleased. And unlike O1, OSW could easily translate into a feature film. Oh, and for an example of how gripping it is: I pulled over to the side of the road on the way to work this morning to finish off the last few pages…just couldn’t wait.

EUROPA: Quanundocii 

The Orbs have protected the Oonock race for hundreds of millions of years. In times of imminent destruction, they have united two Oonocks in the Quanundocii, the most sacred and purest form of Oonock love which unites two individuals so completely together, that they can defeat death itself. Only the Quanundocii can save the Oonock race. It has only occurred only four times in Oonock history, the last being Enok and Medaron. But Medaron’s death broke the Quanundocii and left the Oonocks vulnerable. A new Quanundocii is needed.

Europa must be united in the Quanundocii if the Oonock race is to defeat the Terrians. But she cannot do either while a human. The Orbs begin to change her, to rebuild her into what she was meant to be – a true Oonock. But their remolding soon puts her life in jeopardy. If a way cannot be found to stop any accidental transformation, she will flow out and die before anyone can help. Can she stay alive long enough for the transformation to be complete? Can she be united in the Quanundocii and save her people? Or will the Terrians win this time? She has already lost so much, so many of the people she loved. Who else will be lost before this nightmare is over?

She craves fame. He wants freedom. When their worlds crumble, even survival may not be an option.

The world is driven by wizards, gods, and an imperial space marine 20,000 years into our future. Fame-hungry female mercenary Ticca is willing to skirt the edges of her warrior’s code if it brings her the fame she desires. Her hopes of making a name for herself by spying on assassins are dashed when she’s forced to kill the assassin she was hired to watch.

Lebuin is a rich journeyman mage who’s just discovered his new rank involves actual journeying. He hires Ticca to help him advance to master and return to a life of comfort as quickly as possible. He’s willing to spend all he has to make it happen, but the mage and his mercenary get much more than they bargained for.

Trapped in the crossfire of a vast power game, Ticca and Lebuin must survive a battle between rulers, guilds, and gods. In a land of magic and technology, they’ll need to give everything to keep the world and themselves in one piece.

Thread Slivers is the first book in an epic fantasy/speculative sci-fi trilogy set in a distant future. If you like heroic, humorous, and exotic characters in a world that mixes elements of paranormal and hard sci-fi, then you’ll love this beautiful, original, and thought-provoking adventure.

BOOK ONE IN THE E SERIES

Outpost Three: a huddle of crumbling buildings choked by a concrete wall. Cracked pavement, rusted metal, splintering boards. Huge robotic Sentries police the streets, but the Ten Laws are broken every time one turns its back.

Eden is determined, smart, and a born survivor. Stripped of her memories and dumped on the streets of the Outpost, slavers and starvation are only the beginning of her problems. A devastating conflict is coming that threatens to consume her world and tear her newfound family apart.

By the time I’m done downloading I lose my WiFi connection and it’s time to go home. That night I finish a book I was in the middle of reading, read a short story and out of the 40 or so books I downloaded open up E. What a pleasant surprise. The book is very well written. Right from the start you’re drawn up and caught in the main character’s predicaments. You’re practically walking along her side learning about her just as she is learning about herself. The book did not last long in my hands and it ends just as the sun begins to rise this morning.

As I go through the passages I’ve highlighted (something I don’t always do) I notice that my highlights are mostly descriptions of how she feels. Some of those passages I know are extremely accurate as I have felt like the main character does. Yet there is that (stubbornness?) thing that keeps her moving and doing what is right although sometimes what’s right may not be what’s smart.

Can’t wait to get my hands on the next installment in the series.

PS – The book reaches a conclusion of the main plot so you won’t be left on a cliffhanger hating the author for resorting to this kind of cheap shot to force you to buy the next book in the series. This one you will want to buy it because you want to continue E’s adventure and because the book is well written, not something you have to force yourself to read just because you already started it.

Arrival 

“How did you die?”

I turned my head. The girl couldn’t have been more than seven. She had light brown hair held back in a ponytail. Her nose was dusted with light freckles, her cheeks as well, only not as densely as the freckles on her nose. She waited a second for my response, then said, “I went into diabetic shock.”

I nodded, like this wasn’t the craziest thing I’d ever heard.

She continued, “I have an uncle here. Uncle Trent. He died in a car crash when I was five. I’m supposed to go live with him I guess.”

She wrinkled her nose. I had a feeling she didn’t like Uncle Trent. Maybe Uncle Trent was like my Uncle Bill. Maybe Uncle Trent liked to make up stories after ten cans of Miller High Life, then get pissed off when you told him he was full of shit.

“So how did you die?” She came again.

This was the hundredth time I’d been posed that question in three days. How did you die? It was yet to lose its level of absurdity. In three days, there hadn’t been many answers, only promises that in time everything would make sense. The only answer, the only definitive that anyone would share, the only time anyone would look you directly in the eye was when you asked them if you died.

They wouldn’t waver, they wouldn’t blink, they would only nod their head and say, “Yes.”

Since the Sirens

The world is ending. Who will save Grandma?

What would you do if a mysterious plague began to devour your city and the dead started banging on your door?

Fifteen-year-old Liam Peters is spending the summer with his great-grandmother (not by choice) when the authorities of St. Louis spin up the tornado sirens to announce a civic emergency. Police robocalls declare mass disturbances throughout the city, suggesting citizens try to escape to safer jurisdictions. Radio offers contradictory instructions: stay inside, hunker down, ride it out. The President tries to convey a message of hope to calm a scared populace, but the tone is interpreted as a goodbye. The mixed messaging sends society–already on the verge of panic–into a tailspin. When the President signs off, half the city boards their windows while the other half dashes for the interstate.

Now Liam is faced with his first dilemma of an increasingly complicated morning. Should he stay with Grandma and attempt to defend her urban home against both the living and the dead, or should he try to get her out of the city to his parents’ home in the suburbs? Nothing is ever as simple as it sounds when life and death are on the line.

As an avid reader of zombie books, Liam realizes you go into the zombie apocalypse with the army you have, not the one you want. He sees himself as an unlikely savior, with an unlikely ally, but he embarks on the hero’s journey nonetheless. As the city implodes, they race against the clock to outpace desperate refugees, gang violence, criminal opportunists, overzealous military units, scared civilians, and a growing horde of bloodthirsty zombies. He does it while burdened with a woman unable to walk more than ten feet without his help.

As they chase the elusive vision of safety, Liam comes to appreciate why there are no atheists in foxholes.

End Game 

Dee Baker, star programmer for a Fortune 100 media powerhouse, has options. She also has access to the secret plans of the U.S. government to make the end of the world survivable, for some.

The ultimate job benefit is a berth in an ark, safe from the storms as climate change accelerates, and the processes that normalize Earth’s climate sputter and fail.

Set in Connecticut, this near-term SF adventure is pre-apocalyptic, where ordinary people choose extraordinary ways to face a climate and world gone haywire.

Will Dee be one of the fortunate few to get an ark berth? Or is that even the goal?

“A vivid picture of how one small corner of the world deals with global events at a very personal level. End Game’s greatest strengths: a protagonist – and supporting cast – that I grew to identify with over the course of their story, and a message of hope in a world threatening to burst apart at the seams.” – Teenage Archangel

“I had trouble putting it down. The message that the future is bleak, but deal with it, is very refreshing.” – JL_Farmer

When paleontologist Alexandra Moss ventures into the high deserts of Utah in search of a rare dinosaur fossil she gets more than she bargained for: she inadvertently discovers a highly intelligent species from the late Cretaceous that has been in hibernation since the great K-T asteroid disaster–and he is alive!

An absolute page turner, I couldn’t put it down! I fell in love with Alex and Mot from the start and the plot was like nothing I’ve ever read before! The twists and turns kept me on my feet. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a good read. The characters were witty and clever and I didn’t want to leave them when I turned to the last page. I can’t wait for the next book and a chance to fall in love with their world for a second time!!

In Situ is definitely a story that start in the past, has some time in the present and then ends in the future. How is that possible you ask?? You just have to read this very well written and interesting story written by author David Samuel Frazier. It is the story of Alex and David, an archeologist and an engineer. The other two main characters are Mot and Ara, prehistoric creatures from the past. The author creates a sci fi novel, that really could happen. Most scientists believe, the earth was already hit by an asteroid in the past, which is Mot and Ara’s time. Now the same thing is going to happen in Alex and Tom’s time, but they have some help from Mot and Ara’s time. Sounds confusing, but if you read the story, you won’t be able to put it down and you’ll want start the next story, In Natura, as soon as you can.

But what is it? And how did they miss detecting it until now? In a frantic race against time, Dr. Rollins must unravel Nomad’s secrets. A mysterious clue surfaces in his old Cold War-era research papers, from more than thirty years earlier…

Emergency Exit: 2020

By Ever N. Hayes

“A gripping, action/adventure worthy of Hollywood selection and casting, with a near-future plot that should be of interest to all Americans. Full of hooks and twists, crosses genres and generations with ease. Excellent! I couldn’t put it down.” – E.

2020 – Emergency Exit (Book 1 of the 2020 Trilogy)

My wife, Sophie, lost her life four years ago. If she hadn’t, we’d both be dead now.

It’s as simple as that, but also far more complicated.

The cool October day was typical for autumn in the Midwest—a little sun, a little rain, a little wind. My parents, our kids, and their friends had gathered at my lakeside cabin to celebrate and honor Sophie…It was truly a great—stress-free—day.

And then suddenly it wasn’t.

Everything changed on the evening drive into town.
Everyone—everywhere—was dead. Animals too. There was no destruction. Just…death.
Absolute death.
The cause was unknown until we fled back to the cabin and caught the coded message on the radio—a chemical attack.

A what? In northern Minnesota? In America?
How did we not know about this? How did we survive? Was anyone else alive? Anywhere?

The extent of the contamination—the devastation—was largely unknown. The exact perpetrators were also unclear. But as terrible and incomprehensible a reality as that was, the message indicated it was about to get even worse.

An army was coming. Maybe even several.

I wanted to laugh, to cry. I wanted to do anything but face what we’d just seen. I looked at my dad, my son—Danny—and his best friend…the only ones in our group with any preparation for something like this. I glanced at the newest issue of “The Survivalist” magazine on the coffee table. I’d subscribed as a joke. It was humorous reading at the time. I might actually need it now. This was real. Far too real.

And unreal. Somehow—some way—the nine of us were supposed to try to get to Hawaii—the last safe place in America.

I did laugh then. And maybe even cried. Hawaii? From Minnesota? Glancing around the room that night, though, I knew for certain we didn’t have a choice.

The only way for any of us to live was to leave.

Delirium

By Susan Kaye Quinn

2015 Top SELF-ebook in Library Journal!

What’s your life worth on the open market?
In this sexy, gritty future-noir, debt collectors take your life energy and give it to someone more “worthy”… all while paying the price with black marks on their souls.

Lirium plays the part of the grim reaper well, with his dark trenchcoat and jackboots—he’s just in it for his cut, the ten percent of the life energy he collects before he transfers it on to the high potentials, the people who will make the world a better place with their brains, their work, and their lives. That hit of life energy, a bottle of vodka, and a visit from one of Madam Anastazja’s sex workers keep him alive, stable, and mostly sane… until he collects again. But when his recovery ritual is disrupted by a sex worker who isn’t what she seems, he has to choose between doing an illegal hit for a girl whose story has more holes than his soul or facing the bottle alone–a dark pit he’s not sure he’ll be able to climb out of again.

“Absolutely riveting!”
“Quinn has a way of writing heart-breaking characters.”
“You’ll be holding your breath, looking over your shoulder, and begging for more.”

This is the first episode, 44 pages.
Originally written as a serial, SEASON ONE of Debt Collector contains the complete story of Lirium in nine episodes. There are five planned seasons, each from the perspective of a different debt collector.

Netopia

By Y.G. Levimor

The perfect reality is just a thought away, but it comes at a chilling price.

In a near future world, a social network by the name of MINDS gifts its users with the unique ability to communicate directly by thoughts and recreate reality by their deepest fantasies and desires.

In the MINDS network, desires are actualized in a spilt of a second and unwanted elements erased from reality. The advanced algorithms of MINDS enable the user to virtually visit any place in the world or in history within seconds, in an utterly realistic three-dimensional reality. Humans can use their mind to determine everything they please – from the weather to the way their friends look like and behave. But the ultimate comfort comes at a price, and the unexpected results reveal the grand plan behind MINDS.

˃˃˃ What stands behind this magnificent social network, and what are the consequences when the virtual merges with the actual?

Netopia follows the heroes of the network in the days before its establishment, through its launch, relationships and love, and the unexpected change it wreaks on the enthusiastic users who had no idea what awaited them the moment they gave up control over their minds.

˃˃˃ Is the MINDS network a dream come true or a nightmare come to life?

Netopia is beyond science fiction: it is a groundbreaking novel that explores the implications of communication technology on human nature and society, the preference of warmth for realistic animal doll pets but coldness towards humans. the novel speaks to the connected and to the disconnected, to the great minds and the Neverminds. Netopia is a gleaming hope and a dark warning. So, where is your mind?

Eville

By Holand Peterson

First day on the job: The room is on fire, flooded with smoke. The boss is blowing holes in the wall with her elephant gun, miserably failing in an attempt to shoot down the tentacle-covered beast hungrily latched onto her new employee’s leg. Alex peers through the window, four stories above ground, contemplating if he could miraculously survive a jump down, seeing as how this demon is likely to devour him before his mad boss actually hits her mark. You know, this sort of crap never happened when he was working at the video store.

Welcome to EVILLE, the first book in a series of quirky, epic, sci-fi/fantasy adventures (think The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy crossed with The Addams Family).

Serene Necrosia is a brilliant scientist, on the brink of creating something that will change the lives of every living thing on the planet. The only problem is that she has been vaporizing, incinerating, and generally decimating her staff at an alarming rate- all in the name of progress, naturally. But now the Hunchback Union has had enough, and is refusing to supply the woman additional labor. What’s a mad scientist to do? Search for a desperate, poor sap who doesn’t know any better to fill in the vacancy.

Alex Hobbs is down on his luck. He’s lost his job, is dead broke, his girlfriend just dumped him, his car died, and the turkey baking in his neighbor’s oven detonated and burned down his apartment. It’s been one of those weeks. Desperate, he turns to the local employment agency for a job- any job to keep him from starving on the street. When a rather odd fellow working at the agency tells Alex about an exciting entry level position, vaguely described as being in the scientific/medical field, he jumps at the opportunity. Sure, it sounds too good to be true, but a guy’s luck has to turn around sometime, right?

Alex now finds himself stuck in an insane mansion deep in the countryside, bordering the mysterious community of Eville, populated by a colorful cast of volatile inventors, the worlds’ surliest hunchback, stately werewolves, goblin barbers, and the lonely, disembodied brains of ex-husbands whose only form of communication is a worn out Etch-A-Sketch. With free room and board and an exceptionally generous salary, Alex figures he can stick through the madness long enough to get back on his feet. That is, of course, if Serene doesn’t inadvertently kill him off with one of her crackpot inventions before payday.

“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

The freedom to defend oneself against all enemies, foreign and domestic, is the very definition of liberty. America’s Founding Fathers went to great lengths to ensure this right wasn’t infringed upon by future lawmakers. Still, to this day, politicians seem determined to undermine that freedom. Once that right is stripped away from the American People, freedom as we know it will cease to exist.

Stealing Second takes a look into future America, an unarmed America, where unmanned drones rule the skies and UN troops police the population. Across the country, detention camps spring up like weeds. Americans are given two weeks to turn in their firearms. But those who believe Americans will easily give up their arms have another thing coming. Washington only succeeds in angering the American People and the country plunges into a second revolutionary war. With the odds stacked heavily against them, Americans fight back to preserve their liberty.

Like many Americans, Gary Smith trusts the government to make his decisions for him. He lives in a world of self-imposed apathy, blissfully ignorant, and determined to remain so. Slowly, the blinders are removed from his eyes. Gary wakes up to find that the world he knows has suddenly changed. Too late, he realizes that he was part of the problem. Desperate to take back what has been stolen from him, Gary joins a group of likeminded individuals in a last-gasp effort to turn back the hands of time.

Powerfully written and uniquely entertaining, this timely tale is a story that begs to be read. However you feel about gun control, whatever side of the proverbial aisle you stand, Stealing Second is an important work of fiction. A plausible scenario that all Americans should consider before allowing our politicians to dismantle the Second Amendment.

CyberStorm

By Matthew Mather

Now in development for film by 20th Century Fox, award-winning CyberStorm depicts, in realistic and sometimes terrifying detail, what a full scale cyber attack against present-day New York City might look like from the perspective of one family trying to survive it.

THE APOCALYPSE— WOULD YOU SURVIVE?

I’m Laura, and I survived global nuclear war. When I walked out into the devastated landscape, I didn’t find zombies, witches or vampires— what I found was infinitely worse; it was real.

Disclosing the Secret

By Vincent Amato

What the Readers are saying:

“Masterful Storyline!” – James Hargreaves

“Not even the X-Files can top this story’s plot.” – Mark Bacelic

Synopsis

Jake Marcel never wanted anything to do with the military, let alone the intelligence community.

He was the grandson of Major Jesse Marcel, formerly of the 509th Bomb Group for the US Air Force; his grandfather was set up as the man who mistook a downed weather balloon for a crashed extraterrestrial craft allegedly reported by the US military in the 1940s.

Jake’s father had also joined the military and retired as a decorated and respected colonel, but Jake still grew up with the ridicule of his grandfather’s much publicized mistake and chose not to believe in the stories of what his grandfather once found in the desert.

But when Jake uses details of his father’s bedtime stories to solve an engineering problem of his own, he draws the attention of the National Security Agency. To protect their seven-decade old web of secrets surrounding the crash from being unraveled, the NSA deploys their most secret Black Ops detachments to neutralize Jake. Reluctantly, Jake accepts the help of a government scientist who warns him of the imminent threat and seeks Jake’s assistance in bringing forth disclosure of the government’s cover-up.

The revelations shared by the scientist have the power to transform our civilization’s perception of the universe and the world we live in. As Jake struggles to examine his own beliefs, he uncovers an object that has profound implications on the question of whether or not humans are alone in the universe. The truth, he will learn, is more explosive than he could ever have been prepared for.

When Jake realizes he may be able to play a role in exposing over 70 years of secrecy by proving his grandfather’s discovery was real, he finds himself up against one of the world’s most powerful governments as he confronts the most closely guarded secrets of our times.

A reality the world is not ready for; a technology that’s not supposed to exist; a crash that never happened; a government that was not prepared; and a truth we were never to know… Disclosing the Secret is a Dan Brown paced sci-fi action thriller. It explores the idea of introducing an extraterrestrial presence into contemporary civilization and delves into its implications on our social, political and religious beliefs, challenging the reader to ask, “What if?”

All the events and technologies embedded within the narrative are based on alleged artifacts and incidents from the recollections of Col. Jesse Marcel Jr..

The 9/11 Machine

By Greg Enslen

Dr. Donald Ellis lost everything on 9/11. He lost his wife and daughter in the south tower of the World Trade Center. But while others grieved, or plotted revenge, Dr. Ellis threw himself into a long-dormant research project. He traded his lab at the University of New York for an ugly riverfront warehouse in Brooklyn. What is he working on? And why does he spend every free moment at the warehouse standing by the river, staring across the water at Ground Zero? Because Dr. Ellis has a plan: he’s going to make 9/11 “unhappen.”

A good solid story. Really enjoyed how each of the scenarios was developed and the outcomes. I do not read a book to pick it apart with minor discrepancies, or editing faults, I read a book for its entertainment value and how much satisfaction I get from the story. This one I thought, was really good. Mr Enslen made time travel real, his theory that because of what had already happened couldn’t be changed no matter how hard you tried was plausible and really added to the frustrations of our time traveller. He may have prolonged what eventually was going to happen, but it happened anyway and the outcomes were a lot worse then he had imagined.

Impetus

By Scott M. Sullivan

When the world first heard about the asteroids, it was already too late.

Ten arduous years later, Mick and his small group of eight had adapted to the new way of things. With no clean running water, power, or forms of communication, the Earth went backward, taking with it almost everything they held dear. Survivors like Mick were forced to do the best they could with what they had. Because in the post-Impact world, alternatives were a luxury that no one could afford.

Now a deadly virus threatens those who were unfortunate enough to survive.

With the clock ticking down on their lives, Mick will navigate the deceitful webs spun by those that oppose his drive for salvation. And along his quest to prevent another catastrophe, Mick will rediscover what it truly means to be human.

***
Impetus does away with the genre’s tendency to dwell on the coming catastrophe, to instead examine the very-real human experience and condition left behind by a world-changing disaster.

Sonny Starr, an eleven year old boy from London is thrilled to be selected with nineteen other children to attend the world’s space academy that orbits the Moon. The excitement soon turns to terror when his team’s spacecraft is advised to sail far beyond Pluto and then becomes lost into the outer reaches of our solar system.

But then that is the danger, they know exactly what they are doing!

Sonny Starr and his crew of four other gifted children together with two miraculous robots must survive a perilous journey beyond a strange vortex known only to a secret unit at the academy from where they encounter what really exists beyond our world. As Sonny and the cadets desperately struggle to survive they discover the real motive behind their disappearance and embark on a heroic plan to return to the academy and uncloak their perpetrators in front of an astonished world.

This book “Sonny Starr Versus The Spacetime Conspiracy” proves to be an excellent read. Not only is this story suitable for children I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys sci-fi. The author is a brilliant writer. It is clear to see that the author has placed an exceptional amount of care and attention toward this story. The main character is very courageous and is displayed as an excellent role model. This book is definitely worth the investment and your time. Looking forward to the sequel.

Great book with a fun story line, it was a pleasure not only to my little girl but also my niece (who is a ferocious reader). The plot and character development were great that was easy to follow and understand. Can’t wait for the next book.

Windigo Soul

By Robert Brumm

A Death Sentence on Your 60th Birthday is Just the Beginning…

It’s Hank Reed’s birthday. As a citizen of the United Federation of Nations that means a mandatory death sentence simply because he turned sixty years old. Referred to as “retirement,” it’s one of the desperate steps the government has taken to curb overpopulation. Retirement is a widely accepted fact of life on a dying planet ruled by a tyrannical government. Hank’s execution goes ahead as planned but state sponsored euthanasia isn’t what it seems. The Reed family learns what really happens to retirees when secrets the UFN keep from the public start to unravel.

This book is intended to be read by adults and may be unsuitable for children under 17. Contains indecent language and descriptions of graphic violence.

Could this be our future – permanent retirement at 60, one child only allowed, criminals teminated, and what else could follow??? On the plus side; an endless supply of energy, food (ask the Donners), organ donors and anything else Big Brother could capitalize on. What about the “resistance” to this wonderful lifestyle?

This would certainly put an end to “rest homes”, Medicare and Medicaid, and many other social programs and their costs. It would also put an end to family units as we now know them.

Windigo Soul is a well written, well thought out work of fiction which could just be an accurate eye into the future, you never know. An excellent read and I am in full agreement with another reviewer about wanting to see the sequel to this story.

Architects of Destiny

By Amy DuBoff

Out of sight beyond Earth, the Taran empire spans the galaxy from its seat of power on Tararia.

Cris Sietinen was born with rare telekinetic gifts—abilities he refuses to ignore, regardless of the governing Priesthood’s decrees. But, as heir to the most influential Dynasty on Tararia, only a stifled life of business and politics awaits him within the confines of his family’s estate. Determined to be true to himself and explore the potential of his abilities, Cris leaves Tararia to begin a new life touring the stars.

When Cris unexpectedly receives an invitation to join the Tararian Selective Service (TSS), the only organization to offer an official telekinesis training program, a new future awaits. It’s his dream opportunity to be among people like himself, free from the Priesthood and political objectives. Except, Cris’ path was designed, and he’s right where the Priesthood wants him.

Architects of Destiny is the first installment in the Cadicle series, a new space opera epic with elements of “Dune” and “Ender’s Game.” A fast-paced space adventure with intrigue, coming-of-age and romance, this short prequel is a prelude to the defining events in Tararia’s history in the ensuing years.

The Last Overseer

By Anton Troia

( This is the 2nd edition of The Last Overseer. Now edited and revised as of August 2014 )

In 2033, a sudden change in the Earth’s axial tilt compromised the magnetosphere forever; and the result was devastating. With only a compromised magnetosphere for protection, people were no longer protected from the hyperactive sun. Temperatures soared, ice caps melted, and natural disasters were as common as rain. To make matters worse, solar flares bombarded every facet of the globe, and in just two years, over two-thirds of the planet’s population perished due to radiation-induced cancer. Those who managed to survive did so with horrible physical mutations and mental degradation.

Alarmed by the crisis on Earth, several owners of an extra-terrestrial mining company decided to step out from the shadows and disclose their existence to whatever remained of Earth’s disbanded governments. With their arrival came bold claims, announcing themselves as being the Overseers of planet Earth for a very long time. At first, no one appreciated such a surreptitious delegation, especially after the Overseers announced that they would only take Earth’s most prominent citizens with them on their ships, leaving many less fortunate survivors to rot on an irradiated Earth. However, the hard feelings subsided rather quickly after Earth’s new benefactors introduced advanced molecular medicine to the public–medicine that would cure radiation sickness for good and become the key to humanity’s preservation on Earth.

Ten years later, humanity’s population began to rebound and all seemed well. Until one day, several citizens began rejecting the Overseer’s mandatory medical care, including a keen observer by the name of Charlie Beasley, who along with his new girlfriend Elena, claimed that the Overseers’ mandatory inoculations did a lot more than just cure people of radiation sickness–and that a much more sinister agenda was at play.

Into the Dark

By J.A. Sutherland

At fifteen, Alexis Carew has to face an age old problem – she’s a girl, and only a boy can inherit the family’s vast holdings. Her options are few. She must marry and watch a stranger run the lands, or become a penniless tenant and see the lands she so dearly loves sold off. Yet there may be another option, one that involves becoming a midshipman on a shorthanded spaceship with no other women.

I was really surprised by this book in many ways. Firstly, you think from the synopsis that this book is going to be just about this little girl fighting the “big bad space sailors” to become a part of the crew. Now that aspect is in there but not in such a way as to make you think this was written by some feminist trying to prove a point. This girl freaking rocks your socks off. Almost immediately, you are cheering (while your girlfriend looks at you weirdly) at the book because Alexis is such a great character. You want this girl to succeed and take the day in epic space battles.

The second thing that surprised me were those space battles. This book draws heavily on the British navy during the days of sails and things. Except, now the ships are in space. I know what you are thinking at this moment, “What?” but wait, the author manages to really make this subject work. The author describes (and I am not going to share details) these incredible ships and technologies that bring this subject of old school ship to ship battles to life. I am talking full on broadsides in space, with lasers!!!

For a few dollars you get a really interesting read with fun characters and characters that you hate then love dearly. Obviously, you can tell I enjoyed it. So… I will leave you with this, buy the book read it and enjoy.

Last of the Chosen

By Lawrence P. White

A note from the author:

Spirit of Empire is a series. Each book is twice as long as a standard novel, so you are getting excellent value along with a great story. Take the plunge – you will not regret it.

The story:

The Empire, hundreds of thousands of civilizations scattered across the galaxy, has been subtly invaded by the Chessori, diminutive creatures wielding a powerful mind weapon. No one can resist this terrible mind weapon, and the war is lost before anyone knows it began.

Ellandra of the Chosen, the youngest and last surviving leader of the Empire, flees the Chessori. In desperation, she lands on a little-known emerging world called Earth where she is rescued by Mike Carver, an innocent bystander. In the process, he discovers that he and the people of Earth are immune to the mind weapon.

Join Mike and Ellandra on their quest to restore the Empire to its former glory. Along the way they will enlist many others, including:

– Otis, a Great Cat, the most lethal Protector in the Empire.

-Jake, a Rider, an intelligent alien mass of protoplasm. If a person could be considered a commodity, Riders would be the single most valuable commodity in the Empire. Unfortunately for Mike, Riders can only survive inside a host body.

-George, a nearly sentient artificial intelligence.

-Krys, a young woman far across the galaxy who receives unwelcome visions of the future. She hears Ellandra’s call, but she is just an orphan. What can she do?

Within days, feverish folk throughout the country convulsed, collapsed, and died, only to be reborn.

An absolute page turner, I couldn’t put it down! I fell in love with Alex and Mot from the start and the plot was like nothing I’ve ever read before! The twists and turns kept me on my feet. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a good read. The characters were witty and clever and I didn’t want to leave them when I turned to the last page. I can’t wait for the next book and a chance to fall in love with their world for a second time!!

Don’t start to read this book unless you can finish it in one sitting. The only negative comment is that I could not find the sequel

Literally couldn’t put this down So full of the What-ifs of real science … really a page turner I’d love a sequel!!!

I’ll admit that after I read a really depressing book perhaps my review is colored a bit. However I really really love this book . David present this world in stunning detail and the character development is excellent from start to finish . The book gives you hope throughout the whole story that perhaps it will end well . I will not give the end of the book away but it was very well done . It is too bad that this book will likely never have a sequel but I hope that in some way we get to see what becomes of our heroes in the future .

The Lost World

By Arthur Conan Doyle

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was a Scottish physician and writer known around the world for his stories about detective Sherlock Holmes, which all but created the literary field of crime fiction and made the name Sherlock Holmes synonymous with detectives. Aside from the Sherlock Holmes stories, he was a prolific writer whose other works include science fiction stories, historical novels, plays and romances, poetry, and non-fiction.

Amazon.com Review

Forget the Michael Crichton book (and Spielberg movie) that copied the title. This is the original: the terror-adventure tale of The Lost World. Writing not long after dinosaurs first invaded the popular imagination, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spins a yarn about an expedition of two scientists, a big-game hunter, and a journalist (the narrator) to a volcanic plateau high over the vast Amazon rain forest. The bickering of the professors (a type Doyle knew well from his medical training) serves as witty contrast to the wonders of flora and fauna they encounter, building toward a dramatic moonlit chase scene with a Tyrannosaurus Rex. And the character of Professor George E. Challenger is second only to Sherlock Holmes in the outrageous force of his personality: he’s a big man with an even bigger ego, and if you can grit your teeth through his racist behavior toward Native Americans, he’s a lot of fun.

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. In 1912, Doyle took his Victorian readers deep into the South American jungles where, high atop a treacherous plateau, a small band of British explorers encountered a terrifying world of prehistoric creatures long thought lost to the sands of time. The adventurers included a young newspaper reporter, Ed Malone; the swashbuckling aristocrat, Lord Roxton; the skeptical scientist, Professor Summerlee; and the brilliant and bombastic Professor Challenger, who leads the party. Doyle unfolds high adventure at its best with fantastic encounters with pterodactyls, stegosaurs and cunning ape -men. Glen McCready’s performance captures the time and tone of Doyle’s material perfectly without straying into melodrama. He nicely balances Malone’s sense of youthful wonder with the professors’ scientific pragmatism, while fully exploiting the humor spread strategically throughout, planting numerous chuckles among the thrills. McCready’s entertaining reading more than fulfills the author’s introductory wish to give one hour of joy to the boy who’s half a man, or the man who’s half a boy. (Feb.)

Dream Eater

By Ashley Black

What if failing to act on your hopes and dreams could KILL your life?

Fabian, a struggling, procrastinating musician slept walked through life just like everyone else. Until he didn’t. He woke up.

Stirred from the arms of his comfort cell, he awakens as a rock star, Faze Shadows. But discovers that waking up to a brand new existence, to powers beyond measure to the world practically at his feet. The fame and visibility he so sorely craved in the bottom of a bottle, is sadly, not without a price.

The ability to step outside of the Sleepwalk, has created the most hideous and terrifying of monsters.

A Dream Eater.

It was supposed to be an urban myth. Fabian remembered it well. The warning had made a chilling impression on him as a child – be sure to release your dreams, to live your dreams so they are not inside you when the Dream Eater comes for you at night.

The creature has an insatiable hunger for devouring peoples hopes and dreams. The more unfulfilled the dream, the more attractive to the Dream Eater.

All the passion, hopes, good intentions and desires we hold deep inside. Doing nothing. Being nothing. So many. Too many. Endless.
And it will never stop. Ever. Not until every life is empty.

But the horrible truth is that few people can act upon their dreams in the Sleepwalk sanctioned by the government. No one is safe. Not even Fabian. A life is destroyed with each dream that is eaten and the weight of them all are coming to bear on the Dream Eater’s creator – a relentless cold dark SUCK. Fabian is being unmade. He can feel it. All of him. Unravelling. He smells like glycerin, there is a taste he can’t get rid of in his mouth. He tastes like blood.

Without

By E.E. Borton

The apocalypse came as a whisper.

Mother Nature had been sending signs for three years, but most didn’t pay attention until she pulled the plug on everything. Nobody will forget where they were and what they were doing at 8:13 on that morning. They’re all still waiting for 8:14. Well, at least the ones that have made it so far.

He was stuck in Atlanta traffic, making his way to work, when the world fell silent. His car, his radio, his phone, his watch, anything that needed a spark, a battery, or an outlet died. The silence didn’t last long and neither did she. He didn’t know if the yellow sundress was the first to die, but he does know that she wasn’t the last. Not even close.

As aircraft fell out of the sky, panicked drivers lost control in the fast lane, and pace makers stopped keeping their rhythms, he got out of his car and popped the trunk. Most didn’t pay attention, but he did. And he knew what was coming.

Three years earlier during the first city-wide blackout in Atlanta, he lost his Samantha to cowards who were never caught. Those looking to take advantage didn’t hesitate, wreaking havoc at every opportunity. It took less than an hour after the event for society to start its disintegration.

He made a promise to himself never to feel that helpless again. He wasn’t a soldier or a cop, but he was one of the few that did have a plan. Get out of the city, get away from people, and don’t hesitate.

May God have mercy on their souls, because he won’t.

Without

By E.E. Borton

The apocalypse came as a whisper.

Mother Nature had been sending signs for three years, but most didn’t pay attention until she pulled the plug on everything. Nobody will forget where they were and what they were doing at 8:13 on that morning. They’re all still waiting for 8:14. Well, at least the ones that have made it so far.

He was stuck in Atlanta traffic, making his way to work, when the world fell silent. His car, his radio, his phone, his watch, anything that needed a spark, a battery, or an outlet died. The silence didn’t last long and neither did she. He didn’t know if the yellow sundress was the first to die, but he does know that she wasn’t the last. Not even close.

As aircraft fell out of the sky, panicked drivers lost control in the fast lane, and pace makers stopped keeping their rhythms, he got out of his car and popped the trunk. Most didn’t pay attention, but he did. And he knew what was coming.

Three years earlier during the first city-wide blackout in Atlanta, he lost his Samantha to cowards who were never caught. Those looking to take advantage didn’t hesitate, wreaking havoc at every opportunity. It took less than an hour after the event for society to start its disintegration.

He made a promise to himself never to feel that helpless again. He wasn’t a soldier or a cop, but he was one of the few that did have a plan. Get out of the city, get away from people, and don’t hesitate.

May God have mercy on their souls, because he won’t.

EXOSKELETON

By Shane Stadler

REVIEWS:

“Stadler – an experimental physicist by trade – effectively uses his background working in government and defense labs in painting vivid, appropriately clinical looks at the very base concept of torture. He spins it, however, into a horrifying tale of supernatural vengeance, one wrought with complex questions of faith, spirituality, and the after-life.” – Chris Hallock, CHIZINE

” … a cleverly executed [blend] of science fiction, suspense and horror. … a certified dark journey into madness.” – David Gammon, HORROR NEWS

“EXOSKELETON utilizes several science fiction and horror tropes: the medical experiment gone horribly wrong, the malevolent secret government organization that will stop at nothing to achieve its aims, vengeful spirits against which the fleshbound have no defense, [still] Stadler never lets the story devolve into cliche, but instead uses these tropes with originality and energy.” – Tracie McBride, EXQUISITE CORPSE

SYNOPSIS:

A convicted felon is given a choice following his sentencing … Serve a twenty five year conventional prison sentence … Or spend 365 days in a new, experimental corrections program.

He opts for the experimental program … Only to realize he has made a horrible mistake.

A dark tale of science spun dangerously out of control, EXOSKELETON will leave even the most jaded of readers quaking in their boots.

AL CLARK

By Jonathan G. Meyer

Four giant starships left Earth, traveling in different directions and looking for a new start; hoping to find a substitute for home.

They sought a virgin planet that had not been ravaged by climate change, crime, and overcrowding.

Each ship was populated by the best Earth had to offer and sent to one of the four best possible exo-planets discovered by man.

This is the story of the starship Excalibur, and the adventures of its brave passengers.

Al Clark wakes up on a space ship with no indication of who he is or where he is located. He finds a young man named Chris on board and thus begins their mission to awaken the crew from a near forty year hibernation and to discover his true purpose.

An excellent debut from author Jonathan Meyer, Al Clark is an easy and page-turning science fiction adventure, appropriate for young adults and older.

Enjoyable read. I thought the entire concept of the story was interesting and different than a lot of science fiction books. I could not put it down and finished it in a couple evenings. The mystery of who Al Clark is could make way for a series of equally great books under the “Al Clark” title. I hope that there will be a followup soon. Looking forward to it!

The first thing I noticed about this book is the narrative style. It’s not your typical storytelling. It’s chameleon-like, depending upon the mood and the atmosphere and that is an amazing thing. The book starts out a bit scary in a stark, cold place — both physically and in the character’s mind, and the prose style and choice of words and rhythm reflects that. Then as things resolve into a bit more of a peaceable, friendly environment, the dialogue and the writing tempo eases back into that as well. It’s lighter where it was darker in the beginning. Then danger – tension bleeds into it and it’s a neat thing to read. The writing itself is very easy, yet it puts these vibrant, vivid clear images into the head, like watching a film. I really enjoyed the plot and wanted more at the end of it. The story built upon itself brick by brick place by place character by character and structurally that was really satisfying. The story itself was really fun, reminding me of old school sci-fi… like listening to an episode of X Minus One or reading Heinlein.

By S.S. Segran

#1 Amazon Kindle Bestseller. Worlds Collide . Heroes Arise

A Missing World War II Bomber… A Baffling Contagion… Widespread Famine … Nations at the Brink of War… Five Unlikely Heroes… An Apocalyptic Prophecy

“If Daniel Silva and Rick Riordan had a love child, it would be the young S.S.Segran.” ~The OnlineBookClub.org~

On a bright July morning in 1948, a B-29 Superfortress flying a top-secret research mission over Nevada crashes into the calm waters of Lake Mead and sinks, remaining lost for half a century.

It has been nearly a year since five friends – Jag, Kody, Mariah, Tegan and Aari – mysteriously reappeared in a small town in Yukon several weeks after their small plane went down in Northern Canada. All were found unharmed but with no recollection of what happened to them after the accident.

A baffling contagion is spreading across the bread-basket of North America destroying vital crops. As this dark shadow marches across the globe, widespread famine and riots bring desperate nations to the brink of war.

These seemingly unrelated events set the stage for a battle between the forces of darkness and those destined to become the ‘bearers of light’. From ravaged fields in the Great Plains to clandestine installations around the world, the Aegis League must race against time to save humanity.

SECTOR 64: Ambush

By Dean M. Cole

**Huffington Post – IndieReader Best of SF&F**

It’s 2016—Friendly extraterrestrials JUST made first contact! So why has the sworn enemy of these benevolent aliens HATED humans for millennia?

X-Files meet Independence Day when incredible events thrust Air Force Captains Jake Giard and Sandra Fitzpatrick into a decades-long global conspiracy to integrate humanity into a galactic government. However, as Jake finishes indoctrination into the program, it renders present-day Earth a disposable pawn in a galactic civil war.

Unknown aliens with a dark secret raid the planet.

Within and even below Washington DC, Jake fights through a post-apocalyptic hell, struggling to comprehend the enigmatic aftermath of the first attack. On the West Coast, Sandra’s squadron smashes against the invading aliens. Thrown to ground, Sandy wades through blazing infernos and demented looters in a desperate attempt to save her family.

Finally, with the fate of the world in the balance, both captains must take the battle to the enemy–humanity’s very survival hanging on their success.

The Song of the Jubilee

By Raeden Zen

A CLINICAL TRIAL UPON THE EARTH’S SURFACE …
TO TEST A TREATMENT AGAINST REASSORTMENT …
WILL ALTER THE COURSE OF TRANSHUMAN HISTORY.

In the Great Commonwealth of Beimeni, a subterranean civilization in North America, expansion long ago gave way to peace and prosperity in the face of the history’s most devastating plague. Immortality is the reward for service and loyalty in Beimeni, a place where the physical blends with the metaphysical and power consolidates in the hands of those with a genetic edge. The fissures first spread slowly, then swiftly, until now the Great Commonwealth finds itself on the brink of economic devastation, challenged by forces from within that know its secrets and its crimes. At the center of the conflict lie the Selendias of Piscator, founders of the resistance with an uncanny connection to the zeropoint field, and the Barão Strike Team, three researchers tasked with finding a cure to the Reassortment Strain, the plague that nearly wiped transhumankind from the Earth. Traveling from the uninhabitable but pristine surface to the habitable but inhospitable underground, this is a story about dedication to dreams, battle for survival, discovery and connection, song and celebration, undoing past misdeeds, and sacrifice for the greater good.

In The Song of the Jubilee, Captain Broden Barão, Striker Nero Silvana, and Strategist Verena Iglehart, together with the elite Reassortment research team, release a protohuman on the Island of Reverie, testing a serum designed to thwart the Reassortment Strain. They must find a cure to the plague or suffer the inevitable consequence for failure: demotion or worse, exile to the Lower Level some four thousand meters beneath the Earth’s surface. Meanwhile, in the Great Commonwealth, two thousand five hundred meters deep, the resistance movement known as the Liberation Front suffers a disastrous defeat when its leader, Jeremiah Selendia, is captured by Lady Isabelle Lutetia, Supreme Director of the Department of Communications and Commonwealth Relations. With Jeremiah held by the government, his middle son unexpectedly finds the weight of the war on his shoulders. It falls to Johann to lead the Front, to rescue his father from one of the commonwealth’s most impregnable fortresses, and to keep his younger, underdeveloped brother hidden from the chancellor, who forces foes to undergo clinical trials against the plague upon the surface. Johann’s efforts draw the attention of powerful enemies and start a chain of events that will forever change his family, the Barão Strike Team, and the Great Commonwealth of Beimeni.

Xenofreak Nation

By Melissa Conway

In the future, bioengineered animals provide organs for human transplantation. Grafts of animal skin have replaced tattoos in popularity, which gives rise to a unique new demographic: xenofreaks. Bryn Vega’s father is head of the Pure Human Society and when she’s kidnapped by the Bestia Butcher, the most notorious of the criminal xenosurgeons, she assumes it’s payback for her father’s anti-xeno activities. Scott Harding is her taciturn jailer-called Cougar because of the claws replacing his fingers-but Scott is not who he seems. Deep under cover for the Xenofreak Intelligence Agency, he’s been given unprecedented immunity to find the Bestia Butcher’s lair and do whatever it takes to bring him to justice. When Bryn is forced to undergo a radical xenoalteration, she discovers a terrible secret: her father is using The Pure Human Society as a front for his own purposes. His willingness to sacrifice his daughter to accomplish them sends her running to Scott for protection, and into the hard-core underground subculture of the very xenofreak society she once despised.

I’m going to do something very rare for me. I’m giving this book 5 stars. I want you to know, if you aren’t familiar with my reviews, that I rarely do this.

Even more surprising, this is an Indie (self-published) book. Ace, Tor, or other SF publishers missed out big time. If Ms. Conway tried for an agent and couldn’t get their attention, then I’m sticking out my tongue at them and saying nyah nyah nyah.

Okay, that’s out of my system.

I found this book browsing the You Gotta Read blogs. Not sure if it was for covers or trailers. The concept sounded very original so I squandered my hard-earned 99 cents on the book.

That’s a buck I’m glad I spent.

Briefly, xenofreaks are people who have undergone a procedure which attaches some animal body parts to them. The animals are genetically raised to be compatible with humans. Originally, the idea was to grow organs for transplants, but the underground xenofreaks started using the bits and pieces for decoration. Why not have feathers instead of hair? How about cougar claws? A wolf’s face?

Sounds pretty creepy. Anyway, the book opens with a protest by a group opposed to the xenofreaks’ use of animals. I’m on their side. But as the plot progresses, we find out there are more sides to the story than you might guess.

Rapid pace, excellent writing, sympathetic main characters, pitch perfect POV changes.

I’d definitely buy more from Melissa Conway.

Peyton 313: Book One of Cyborgs: Mankind Redefined

By Donna McDonald

Worst epic fail of her scientific career? Falling for a cyborg she helped create.

Dr. Kyra Winters never meant for her cyber science discoveries to be used for evil, but that’s exactly what happened. Now returning Peyton 313’s humanity is the last chance she’ll ever have to atone. She can’t get back the lost decade, but she can change the present by restoring the cyborg who was once Marine Captain Peyton Elliot.

Certainly her grand plan for rectifying her mistakes didn’t include madly kissing the confused, passionate Marine when he begged her to. The same scientific mind that constructed the cyborg creator code now warned her not to let Peyton’s tempting offers of heaven cloud her rational decision making. Yet it’s difficult to resist the cyborg she’s restoring when he’s also the most intriguing man she’s ever known.

About the Cyborgs: Mankind Redefined series

This is a science fiction and fantasy series that takes place in the not too distant future. These Cyborg romance heroes are genetically engineered military men who have been cybernetically imprisoned after a near apocalyptic global war. The heroine in Book 1 appears briefly in every book as one by one she and her team attempt to restore each soldier’s humanity. Each book in the series deals with a different restored cyborg. Each story also contains lots of action and adventure, some violence and language, and hopefully a few laughs along the way.

Alien Species Intervention: Books 1-3

By J.K. Accinni

  •  Warning*** This series honestly reflects the brutality of our world. If you are a sensitive reader, this is NOT for you.*** Contains violence.***

Alien Species Intervention #6609, is an alien apocalyptic saga spanning 200 years from the Prohibition to the distant future. It encompasses tender love between divergent species, political downfalls and acts of unspeakable violence. When you think you’ve figured it out . . . WHAM! You won’t see it coming. Thriller, horror, science fiction and fantasy all in one, the series is a gripping psychological exploration of how the inherent greed and evil of man is dooming planet Earth and its inhabitants.

In Baby, the prequel to the Species Intervention #6609, Netty is a naïve teenage farm girl given in marriage to an older brutal opportunist disguised as a prominent citizen during the Prohibition years in Sussex County, New Jersey. After years of enslavement, Netty flees into the night from her rapist husband, traveling back to her parents’ farm, where she rescues an enigmatic and damaged creature named “Baby” with whom she falls in love.

Netty and Baby find happiness and fulfillment until a handsome Italian stranger, Wil, comes into Netty’s life, creating a tense love triangle made more fraught by Netty’s struggle to hide the bizarre and wondrous changes to her body caused by loving Baby. Baby’s miraculous healing powers on the nature around them can’t be ignored either. The heart-rending and astonishingly brutal climax to their story comes as all three face challenges that ultimately lead to transcendence and the discovery of a new world that promises resurrection.

Echo
2033. One hundred years have passed since the birth of Baby’s miraculous offspring, Echo. The United States has evolved to a point of politically driven economic collapse.

An abused mother escapes with her two sickly children, Scotty and Abby, from the tenements of Short Hills to the farmland of Sussex County. There she unites with a Latino family who has provided a loving home to Jose, a young Costa Rican boy who has been traumatized by murder and kidnap.

The two families find themselves the subject of the psychotic attention of Armoni, a soul damaged beyond redemption, as their lives become entwined with Echo’s, who is intent on thwarting the efforts of the heinous people who prey on the lives of other creatures. And as the insidious miscreant, Armoni, tracks them down, bringing brutality and violence to all, Netty recruits a heartbroken Abby to mount a mission to rescue the wildlife of Earth before despicable events bring on the specter of Armageddon.

In Armageddon Cometh, the third book in the Alien Species Intervention #6609, Abby plans to abduct the wildlife at the Big Cat Sanctuary under Netty’s guidance by enlisting the help of the charming Italian yacht captain, Cobby, even though this leads to the exposure of hidden changes to her body. Despite her love for Jose, she draws closer to the charming Cobby when Jose departs on his own mission to find his adopted family.

At Bird Key, young Scotty embarks on a romance with the troubled rich girl, Chloe. As strange connections and revealed identities collide with political intrigue and murder, a traumatized Chloe and Jose scramble in a frantic dash to escape, wildlife and all, to Tampa Bay. Joining them are Kenya, a sassy and striking pregnant black girl, and Peter, their trusted attorney, who has been left scarred and emotionally ruined by their nemesis, Armoni. In the climax and chaos of the escape ahead of cops and devastation from the sky, it soon becomes clear that Scotty might be the mysterious “One” as foretold in an omen.

Warning: Alien Species Intervention #6609 contains violence that a sensitive reader may find confronting.

Starship’s Mage: Omnibus

By Glynn Stewart

In a galaxy tied together by the magic of the elite Jump Magi, Damien Montgomery is a newly graduated member of their number.

With no family or connections to find a ship, he is forced to service on an interstellar freighter known to be hunted by pirates.
When he takes drastic action to save the Blue Jay from their pursuers, he sets in motion a sequence of events beyond his control – and attracts enemies on both sides of the law!

The vast distance of space has been conquered, by magic. Interstellar ships are moved by their ship’s mage, but at a terrifying price. Damien Montgomery is a trained but novice mage whose unique abilities will bring space pirates and three world’s navies to hunt him down. I couldn’t put the book down and recommend it to any sci-fi fan.

Excellent! I’ve been missing those classic space based SF novels, and this is one from the golden age of interstellar space stories. So what if the solution to how do you exceed the speed of light is put a wizard on the ship: any time it bothers me I just pretend it’s just another type of tech.

Exciting, adventurous, with characters worth rooting for.

The Rain

By Joseph Turkot

***THIS IS THE COMPLETE NOVEL, WITH ALL 5 PARTS OF THE RAIN.***

There are a lot of stories about how the rain started.

The thing that always comes to mind first isn’t the how though, it’s the how much. Russell still does the math too: 15, 5,400, and 8,550. 15 inches a day, 5,400 a year, and 8,550 feet since the start.

We have no idea if it’s accurate. But it’s important to think about it, he says, because it reminds us to keep moving. I’m Tanner. Russell plucked me from the rain when I was two.

Fourteen years ago we left Philadelphia. As the water rose, we moved west, hoping the elevation would keep us warm and dry. Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Sioux Falls, Rapid City. Now we’re stranded on the islands in Wyoming. Russell thinks they used to be the Bighorn mountains. But we can’t go back now. There’s no warm and there’s no dry anymore. Just a rumor about a place where it isn’t raining. So we’re going to try to make it—520 miles south to Leadville. But we can’t drift east, the Great Plains have become waterspout alley, a raging tomb of moving water.

Together we push on, surviving, heading to Leadville. But something is wrong with him now. He says it’s nothing. But his breathing doesn’t sound that way.

Exposure, pruned hands, and infection. But since, Rapid City, it’s the face eaters too. And the crack in the canoe that’s growing. And the ice I think I see on the water. Russell thinks it’s my imagination.

We cling to the last strips of the veneer. And each other.

CyberStorm

By Matthew Mather

Now in development for film by 20th Century Fox, award-winning CyberStorm depicts, in realistic and sometimes terrifying detail, what a full scale cyber attack against present-day New York City might look like from the perspective of one family trying to survive it.

Mike Mitchell, an average New Yorker working to keep his family together, finds himself fighting just to keep them alive when a string of disasters shreds the world around them…the Internet and communication networks go down…a deadly viral epidemic rages across the country…then a monster snowstorm cuts New York off from the world.

In the chaos, rumors fly about a foreign attack, but even this becomes unimportant as Mike and his family struggle to survive in the wintry tomb of a doomed New York.

I couldn’t put it down…finally shows how dangerous our transition to an interconnected infrastructure has become.” – Karic Allega, Joint Cyber Command, US NAVY

CyberStorm is an edge-of-your-seat view into one family’s battle for life in a ruined mega-city, with millions of readers voting it into the top-20 of GoodReads in its category. It comes from the mind of Matthew Mather, a leading cybersecurity expert and author of Darknet, Nomad, and the science fiction series Atopia Chronicles.

Invasion

By Johnny B. Truant and Sean Platt

They are coming. The countdown has begun.

First visible only as blips on a telescope image, the discovery of objects approaching from Jupiter orbit immediately sets humanity on edge. NASA doesn’t even bother to deny the alien ships’ existence. The popular Astral space app (broadcasting from the far side of the moon and accessible by anyone with internet) has already shown the populace what is coming. So the news has turned from evasion to triage, urging calm and offering the few facts they have:

The objects are enormous, perfectly round spheres numbering in the dozens, maybe hundreds. They are on an approach vector for Earth. And they will arrive in six days.

Fear simmers.

Meyer Dempsey – mogul, wealthy entrepreneur, arrogant and always in charge – is in New York, on the phone with his ex-wife in LA when the news breaks. He can hear tension in the voices of reporters and experts chronicling all that’s known and unknown. But even while those supposedly in charge restrain their own panic, Meyer finds he recognizes bits and pieces of what the world is facing. He’s seen this in dreams – in visions of another place. He knows where he and his family must go. He has prepared … though he never knew until now what he’d been preparing for.

He knows only they cannot hesitate. They must run to their safe haven in the Colorado mountains. Now. Before society shatters into chaos, and it all falls apart.

Fear rises.

Meyer has been taking steps for months, and has made preparations: a trove of supplies, a van stocked for the worst, a Gulfstream waiting at a small airstrip in Jersey. But he hasn’t yet been able to take the final and most important step: moving the family to Colorado, where every contingency is covered.

The networks stay on-air longer than expected, creating a farce of calm. But those with means have already begun to scramble as Meyer gathers his wife Piper and his two teenage children and begins their race toward that compound, toward safety. There is no time for hesitation, regret, or pity. Soon, pundits begin to ask questions hard enough to tip those who’ve thus far stayed calm out of their complacency, inciting chaos:

What do the beings inside the ships want? What will they do when they arrive? And what if the scientists are wrong, and the spheres aren’t decelerating? Will they strike the planet, raising clouds of extinction dust? Will they knock the Earth off its axis? Is this a prelude to an alien invasion? An alien war? An alien apocalypse? The first domino in the birth of a new alien empire?

Fear erupts.

Panic, once it breaches the thin crust of civilized society, spreads like a virus. Meyer knows only one thing, and it’s a truth that has perched in his mind like a psychic obsession: When the ships arrive, his family must be at the Colorado compound or all will be lost. The space fleet in itself doesn’t matter. The disintegration on the surviving news outlets doesn’t matter. Reports that Las Vegas has been set ablaze don’t matter. The fate of humanity, in Meyer’s eyes, doesn’t matter.

All that matters is Piper. Trevor. Delilah. And Meyer’s ex-wife Heather, coming to the same destination from the west – a woman who remains his best friend, and his secret lover.

Rioting spills into the highways as time ticks away. Unrest boils in city and hinterlands. But Meyer’s obsession to reach Vail is single-minded, guided with the focus of a far-seeing nightmare. Gangs can ground his plane, threaten his vehicles, and steal his belongings. But nothing will stand between Meyer’s family and their haven … and Meyer will kill his way to Colorado if he has to.

This relentless, page-turning tale of apocalyptic dawn is the first in the Alien Invasion series by masters of story Truant & Platt, authors of The Beam, Robot Proletariat, and more.

Sky City: The Rise of an Orphan

By R.D. Hale

**Winner of Wattpad’s: Watty 2014 – People’s Choice Award for Science Fiction**

My name is Arturo Basilides. I am an orphan living in the slums of Medio City – the capital of a nation ravaged by a war which was won by extremists. Offered a choice between slavery and disenfranchisement, we exist in an underclass so disconnected we effectively inhabit a different era. Daily life involves scavenging, theft and substance abuse with a bunch of misfits who are somehow still in one piece after years of abandonment. I am a natural born fighter and although I despise warfare, I must witness the downfall of those bastard elites whilst fulfilling my romantic intentions with the forever unattainable girl of my dreams.

Sky City is a sci-fi action adventure with light elements of fantasy. It is set in a near future alternative reality where science is indistinguishable from magic and oppression is near-inescapable. Technology has created a newer, ‘superior’ form of human and genetically engineered monstrosities are as terrifying as anything encountered in your nightmares. The underclass have been underestimated and as they fight back the boundary between freedom fighter and terrorist becomes increasingly blurred. Meanwhile, the drug-induced haze of a traumatised mind places a question mark over the meaning of reality.

‘Sky City: The Rise of an Orphan interweaves heavy social issues and philosophy, milking the sci-fi genre for all its worth. The slum dog’s efforts to maintain their humanity in such a heartless age, when everything is going against them is palpable. The 99% versus 1% theme focuses our minds on where society might be heading and forces us to look at things how they are, if we wish them to be truly different.’ Dean C. Moore – Author of Renaissance 2.0

Excerpt

“As the speculation continues, hours pass and nervous energy has me strumming my fingers. Short, sharp bursts of air whistle through my pursed lips and I cannot help, but picture how helpless Dynah appears. Eyelids become heavy through mental exhaustion but concern is no longer the over-riding emotion, rather sadness that our amazing friend may never return. She is likely where she belongs now. When I am close to the point of sleeping in an upright position, the tattered furniture and surrounding grimaces are illuminated by an inexplicable glow which spreads to the four walls. Shadows are cast outwards, indicating the lightsource is directly above us. With elbows resting on thighs, I look up to see a fiery phoenix with a three-pronged tail which descends to head-height. None of us utter a word, unsure if this visitor is a sign, a messenger or a threat. It lets out a piercing cry, then straightens like an arrow to bolt through the door, leaving a scorch mark on yellowish paint. Our heads turn sharply to track its flight path and we sit, gawping for maybe thirty seconds until the firebird returns to once again float between us. ‘I think it wants us to follow.’ Emmi stands up and the others rub their heavily breathing mouths in hesitation. On fidgety feet we pursue the firebird into the vestibule and it scorches through the doubledoors so I unlock bolts, grabbing the key for the outer padlock. The gang exit our so rarely uninhabited building to see smouldering wings illuminate an oak as the firebird crosses the road and unveils patches of masonry on the far side. Flying through the cold night air, our supernatural guiding light leads all the way to the jungle where it hovers next to a thorny bush. ‘Whoa! It wants us to go in there , in the dark. No chance!’ Emmi squawks.
The firebird nevertheless enters murky woodland and naturally I am first to be absorbed by the eeriness of this uninviting locale. ‘Are you guys coming or not?”

Better World

By Autumn Kalquist

The last humans spent centuries searching for a new Earth. Now they face extinction.
For three hundred years, arks have carried the last remnants of humanity through dark space. The ships are old, failing, and every colonist must do their duty to ensure the fleet’s survival.

Maeve is a metalworker, toiling in the blistering sublevels of the London. She’s lost friends and family to the hazardous work conditions and fears every job she’s assigned could be her last. All she wants is a little control over her life, but the oppressive sublevel enforcers ensure that’s not an option.

Now, after decades of traveling, the ships have finally reached their destination: Soren, a toxic planet that may have the resources they desperately need. But mining a planet comes at a price, and Maeve and the other workers will be expected to pay it with their lives.

If a better world awaits, Maeve’s sure to be dead long before the fleet finds it… unless she finds a way to control her destiny and change it.

Better World is a 154 page novella and takes place two years before the events in Legacy Code.

SWAB

By Heather Choate

SWAB (A Young Adult Science Fiction Novel)

“I love Ray, but if he’s still human, he’ll put a knife in my chest.”

Seventeen year old Cat has become a scarb— a mutated human whose instincts are now to kill any living human on sight. She awakens from her “New Birth” to find herself trapped inside a scarb colony ruled by a vicious queen who is intent on using Cat’s abilities as a bearer to raise up an army that will crush any remaining humans. But Cat still remembers what it is like to be human. She desperately clings to the love she has for Ray, who escaped from the colony before Cat could know if he turned scarb, or remained human. She must decide if she’s willing to risk her life, and the lives of those she loves, to challenge the queen and pursue a man who could kill her now that she’s become everything he hates.

Swab delivers equal parts suspense and romance, delving into the clash between survival and morality set in a future with jarring parallels to our present. Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent, Swab is the gripping story of a fresh dystopian world that explores the power of choice over destiny and the decision to love despite differences.

This novel is the first in a three book series.

Check Out What Others Are Saying…

“I am so glad to have read this book. I read a lot and it’s not every day that I come across a book with a unique plot line. This book really had my interest and I could hardly put it down. This action packed book follows Cat’s journey in retaliation against the scarb, who have tragically taken everything from her. I kept trying to predict what was going to happen but this plotline kept me guessing.

I was delighted that this book not only contains thrilling adventures but at its core is a beautiful romance. What impressed me was the way that the characters came alive. I felt like I was right there with Cat battling the scarb. Beyond the action in this book there are also some important lessons that the reader can learn from. Perhaps most interesting to me was the theme of one’s sense of self and their inner strength. I can’t wait for the sequel!” — Louisana

“A great novel. Heather Choate weaves a sci-fi tale that you will get lost in. She transports you to a new world with the descriptive language. Characters become friends, you root for the society she’s created and can’t put it down for one second. Everything you want as a reader, Heather Choate delivers. Loved it and can’t wait for more from this author” — Jason Clark

“Heather has masterfully and skillfully weaved the imagery of an entirely new kind of world, rich with entrancing and vivid details and an awesome plot. Every time a chapter ends, I absolutely had to find out what happens next. With just the right mixture of emotional drama, action, and a story that sucks you in with every change of scene, I am beyond anxious and excited to find out how the sequel turns out. If someone makes a movie out of this, I will be at the theater hours before the box office opens to get the best seat. If you liked Hunger Games, Harry Potter or the Mortal Instruments series, this is just as unique, exciting, and original if not more!” — Thepulsiphyer

Worlds of Eternity

By Aaron Hillsbury

– A New Scifi/Fantasy Series –

Aryssa Mathis, on a secret mission with her colleagues, comes under attack by an enigmatic race in dark armor. The only way to lose her relentless pursuers is to travel through the nearest aether vein… to Earth.

Michael Weller, busy buying a gift at the mall, spots a mysterious blonde woman being chased by an armed soldier. After involving himself, the two are soon trapped under heavy weapons fire. All hope seems lost for them until the woman in black fights back.. with magic.

Both Aryssa and Michael must travel across new and dangerous worlds and figure out why they are being hunted and what dire consequences it could mean for the rest of Eternity.

Worlds of Eternity is an action-packed epic adventure that blends both Scifi and Fantasy together. Look forward to the next book in the series coming Spring of 2016.

Of the few fantasies I’ve read, this one was surprisingly good. It kept me interested from the very start and I’m now looking forward to what happens next (at least I hope there’s more to come). I liked the fact that there were multiple points of views, not seeing things from the same perspective the whole book- which helped the story along. Description was well thought out and brought the book to life (eek to chapter 19). If you’re looking for a new adventure, this is definitely a purchase you’ll want to make. Highly recommended. Kudos to the authors!

The 9/11 Machine

By Greg Enslen

Dr. Donald Ellis lost everything on 9/11. He lost his wife and daughter in the south tower of the World Trade Center. But while others grieved, or plotted revenge, Dr. Ellis threw himself into a long-dormant research project. He traded his lab at the University of New York for an ugly riverfront warehouse in Brooklyn. What is he working on? And why does he spend every free moment at the warehouse standing by the river, staring across the water at Ground Zero? Because Dr. Ellis has a plan: he’s going to make 9/11 “unhappen.”

A good solid story. Really enjoyed how each of the scenarios was developed and the outcomes. I do not read a book to pick it apart with minor discrepancies, or editing faults, I read a book for its entertainment value and how much satisfaction I get from the story. This one I thought, was really good. Mr Enslen made time travel real, his theory that because of what had already happened couldn’t be changed no matter how hard you tried was plausible and really added to the frustrations of our time traveller. He may have prolonged what eventually was going to happen, but it happened anyway and the outcomes were a lot worse then he had imagined.

Good book. Enjoyed it thoroughly as did my husband – a rare occurrence that both of us enjoyed the same book so much. Look forward to reading more of Mr Enslen’s writing.

I read a lot of sci fi and this was right up my alley. I liked the characters and cared what happened to them, but I had a personal reason to be on the edge of my seat as well. As someone living in DC during 9/11, and working with military colleagues in the Pentagon at the time, I read fictionalizations with a critical eye. Mr. Enslen treats his subject with care and heart, as well as being a innovative storyteller. Well done!

The Cleansing

By Sam Kates

Apocalypse unleashed, the Cleansing begins. Relentless. Survival, uncertain.

Seven billion people inhabit this world, unaware our destruction is at hand. Death arrives unheralded—swift and nearly certain—not from meteors or nuclear holocaust or global warming, but from a source no one even knows exists.

The architects of doom have moved among us, hidden in plain sight, waiting for the signal to trigger our extinction.

Blindsided, humanity falls. A handful of survivors, bewildered and grief-stricken, must face the new reality, and quickly. For while the Cleansing threatens our existence, it is only the beginning. . . .

“Sam Kates’ writing style is elegant and deft, and his way with words is superbly meticulous. He paints a picture for the reader of color and space and emotion, but uses a light brush so that no two readers will see quite the same thing: he doesn’t overburden the reader with description but leaves just enough, and just the right things, to the imagination. Kates has written some of the most powerful scenes anyone has put on paper, yet his writing is smooth, effortless, and supremely comfortable.” —Adam Byrn Tritt, author of the award-winning sci-fi short story “Ezekiel’s Wheel”

Mission Improbable

By J.J. Green

In the deepest reaches of the galaxy there are places and beings that aren’t impossible, just very, very improbable.

Carrie Hatchett is a low-achieving daydreamer, and the last person on Earth who should be resolving disputes for the Transgalactic Council. After providing a good home for her butt-ugly dog and psychotic cat, her biggest challenge in life is to avoid being fired, again.

But a strange green mist sucks her beneath her kitchen sink, and an unusual clerical error leads to an offer she foolishly doesn’t refuse.

In settling a conflict between the mechanical placktoids and the mysterious oootoon, Carrie reveals a threat to the entire galaxy.

Mission Improbable is Book One in the light-hearted, fast-paced Carrie Hatchett Space Adventures series.

I really enjoyed this book in the same way I enjoy the Artemis Fowl books. It caused me to laugh out loud a number of times. I’m in the habit of reading as I eat breakfast and dinner, and once I sort of spit out my drink. Like the Artemis Fowl books, although it is funny and has a great cast of zany characters, the conflict of the story is written quite seriously. Without giving anything away, it revolves around two alien species at war. One is bombing the other and one has been taking hostages. This plot and its resolution is surprisingly meaningful. You sort of have a laugh, but then turn around and think, “Well, that was actually quite deep.” The nature of the different types of aliens is also very creative. Very original.

I hope there is a sequel to this book. Carrie is such a good hero. She’s ditzy and irresponsible, but like all real people I know who are that way, she has developed this sort of resilience to all the bad things that happen to her as a result of not paying attention. Her breeziness in the face of grave danger makes her a great comedic hero. Then she has some weird, hidden strengths that jump out when least expected. They don’t do her much good in her real life, but in her space adventure they save the day. Overall great story.

The Apocalypse Crusade

By Peter Meredith

In an apocalypse there is definitely a beginning where mistakes are made and the seeds of evil are allowed to sprout and take shape. However, an end is not so certain. Once an Apocalypse occurs not even death is certain. Sometimes death is only the beginning.

At first light that morning, Dr Lee steps into the Walton facility on the initial day of human trials; she can barely contain her excitement. The labs are brand spanking new and everything is sharp and clean. They’ve been built to her specifications and are, without a doubt, a scientist’s dream. Yet even better than the gleaming instruments is the fact that Walton is where cancer is going to be cured once and for all. It’s where Dr. Lee is going to become world famous…only she doesn’t realize what she’s going to be famous for.

By midnight of that first day, Walton is a place of fire, of blood and of death, a death that, like the Apocalypse, is seemingly never ending.

What readers say about The Apocalypse Crusades:

“DO NOT pick this up until you are ready to commit to an all-night sleep-defying read!”

“WAY OUT WICKED”

“…full of suspense and intrigue, love, both innocent and romantic, hate, both blinding and unnatural, non-stop action, and a very real gripping and palpable fear.”

The Last Layover

By Steven Bird

The Last Layover is the first book of The New Homefront series where patriotic Americans struggle to survive in a collapsing world while taking a stand against the evil and tyranny that quickly follows. The Last Layover is a fiction novel based on real places and potential scenarios where an out of control government pushes America to the brink of financial and social collapse. This vulnerable state allows the unthinkable to happen, causing the comfort, security, and conveniences of our modern first world society to quickly come to an end. Imagine yourself far from home when the world suddenly changes. Just think back to Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, and other such recent events, and you can see just how quickly society breaks down. Those situations even occurred with the nature of the emergency being confined to one specific geographic area, where help is just the next town or state away. Now also think about how that scene would play out if help was not going to come. What if those who you would look to for help had their own emergencies to contend with, leaving you and those around you to fend for yourselves? What about all of those modern conveniences of society like ATM’s, point of sale debit/credit card readers, cell phones, and the internet? What if it all went down while you were away from home? What about our food supply chain? How much food does your family have at home to get them through if the shelves were to go empty? How much do you have with you? Will it all go bad without electricity? Do you have what it takes to defend yourself and those around you when society takes an ugly turn and violence becomes necessary for survival? Those are a few of the things that this book helps you think about.

In The Last Layover, an airline crew finds themselves on an overnight layover in New York City, far from their homes when a series of events take place that bring our modern society to its knees. Join them as they face the dangers and difficulties of trying to make their way back to their homes and families in a rapidly deteriorating society, without our modern transportation and communications infrastructure, all while dealing with the lawlessness and violence that quickly ensues in a desperate and broken society. Discover with them the dark side that humanity can quickly take, as well as the good that can come from faith, family, and friendship.

Cartlidge: Rise of the Imperfect Flame

By Devon Loos

“I am writing this now hoping that you may one day understand what is happening to me. I can’t elaborate. I’ve sworn an oath. But, after a sudden tragedy has left me with no other alternative, I have joined the elite military organization of a strange alien race known as the Rovanekrens. I have traveled far from Earth to a planet known as New Rov to live amongst them, train with them, follow them into battle, and perhaps even discover the key to an ancient mystery, hidden away long ago.”

“They have unleashed a great and mysterious power locked away deep within me. As each day passes, I struggle more and more to understand it, to bring it forth, and to bend it to my will.”

Cartlidge is a futuristic science fiction trilogy series about the terrors of war, the beauty of love, the sting of desperation, the pain of death and the trials and experiences that either define or destroy us. -Rise of the Imperfect Flame- follows the young college student Jacob Cartlidge, the son of a famous alien diplomat who died when Jacob was but an infant. Raised by his mother, Jacob lives in a post World War III Earth in the year 2152. In the midst of his college years, tragedy strikes Jacob, and reveals the truth about himself and the world around him. Upon the discovery that Jacob Cartlidge might in fact be a rare hybrid of human and Rovanekren, he is forced to make a difficult choice: remain on Earth, or delve into a universe filled with creatures, powers and technology completely unknown to him. Jacob quickly decides, and leaves his home, along with everything he knows in life, to enlist as a warrior in the Rovanekren Special Forces, the military power of an ancient alien empire that spans the entire galaxy.

Nomad

By Matthew Mather

Something massive is coming…
And it’s heading for Earth.

That’s what astronomer Ben Rollins is told by NASA after being dragged out of bed in the middle of the night. His first instinct is to call his daughter, Jessica, who’s vacationing in Italy with his wife. “Something is coming,” he tells them, “a hundred times bigger than the sun. We can’t see it, don’t know what it is yet, but they’re calling it Nomad–and in just months, the Earth may be destroyed.

Compelling science, gut-wrenching adventure, and a truly original premise. The disaster thriller we’ve all been waiting for.” – Nicholas Sansbury Smith, author of the Extinction Horizon series.

But what is it? And how did they miss detecting it until now? In a frantic race against time, Dr. Rollins must unravel Nomad’s secrets. A mysterious clue surfaces in his old Cold War-era research papers, from more than thirty years earlier…

The world erupts into chaos as the end approaches–and Ben discovers his wife and daughter are trapped in Europe. The key to humanity’s survival rests in the final answers he pieces together, in the midst of his desperate scramble across continents to find his family before Nomad swallows the planet.

MORE FROM THE BACK COVER

A story of family and redemption set amid a brand new category of cataclysm–all the more plausible and terrifying as the science behind it is vetted by a team of world-class astrophysicists from CERN, SETI, the Keck Observatory and more. It even has its own simulation video, included at the end of the book.

Nomad comes from the mind of award-winning, Amazon Best-Seller Matthew Mather, whose books have sold a half million copies and been translated into sixteen languages, with 20th Century Fox developing one of his latest novels, CyberStorm, for film.

Three months outbound from Earth and the starship Desio approaches its planetary destination, her crew eager to commence a mission of scientific discovery. Kyle Lorenzo, however, has a personal reason for being on board–an inner conflict that will ultimately propel him to explore not only of the furthest reaches of an enigmatic ocean world but the nebulous recesses of his inner psyche.

During the long and isolating interstellar journey a physical relationship develops between Kyle and the ship’s physician, Kelly Takara. That part is easy. Understanding the reasons for avoiding the emotional commitment desired by Kelly is harder. So, too, is trying to penetrate the mind of Larry Melhaus, the mission’s brilliant and reclusive physicist – a failure to communicate made exponentially more troublesome when the scientist’s disturbing behavior begins to threaten the crew.

While Kyle struggles to comprehend himself and Melhaus, the ship’s crew, led by their strong-willed commander, Bruce Thompson, attempt to fathom a planet where none of the precepts of science seem to apply. A world where every preconceived notion of what constitutes life must be re-examined and challenged.

Two journeys: One inward, one outward.
Culminating at the same destination.

The Seekers: The Children of Darkness

By David Litwack

A thousand years ago the Darkness came—a terrible time of violence, fear, and social collapse when technology ran rampant. But the vicars of the Temple of Light brought peace, ushering in an era of blessed simplicity. For ten centuries they have kept the madness at bay with “temple magic,” and by eliminating forever the rush of progress that nearly caused the destruction of everything.

Childhood friends, Orah and Nathaniel, have always lived in the tiny village of Little Pond, longing for more from life but unwilling to challenge the rigid status quo. When their friend Thomas returns from the Temple after his “teaching”—the secret coming-of-age ritual that binds young men and women eternally to the Light—they barely recognize the broken and brooding young man the boy has become. Then when Orah is summoned as well, Nathaniel follows in a foolhardy attempt to save her.

In the prisons of Temple City, they discover a terrible secret that launches the three on a journey to find the forbidden keep, placing their lives in jeopardy, for a truth from the past awaits that threatens the foundation of the Temple. If they reveal that truth, they might once again release the potential of their people.

Yet they would also incur the Temple’s wrath as it is written: “If there comes among you a prophet saying, ‘Let us return to the darkness,’ you shall stone him, because he has sought to thrust you away from the Light.”

Splashdown: First Contact?

By Dave Cole

(Revised Edition, November 17th 2015 Thank you to all the reviewer comments on improving the readability.)
L’atel stared at the power readout in front of him, main and reserve levels both showed zero. “This is not possible, this isn’t supposed to happen,” he spoke out loud, well aware that the others couldn’t
hear him. He and his six passengers were going to die and there was no one in the universe that could save them.

Splashdown tells a different story of first contact with extraterrestrials. L’atel is the pilot of an alien cargo ship who is illegally hauling passengers through our solar system when an accident forces them to crash-land on Earth.

As L’atel and his passengers know, Earth is a primitive planet that has been placed off limits by the Ebens, the self appointed guardians of the galaxy. No outsider is allowed to land or even approach within one light year of Earth to protect its fragile culture. Or at least that is what the Ebens want the rest of the galaxy to believe.

Soon L’atel and his passengers discover that all is not as it appears. The Ebens have secrets, and will go to any length to protect them, even if it means war, with the Earth as the battleground.

Splashdown weaves a story to include many of the better known UFO and alien myths, as well as other conspiracy theories that are so popular in today’s media.

For example, Splashdown includes references to the 1947 Roswell New Mexico crash, the rumored 1954 meeting between aliens and President Eisenhower at Holloman Air Force Base, Project Serpo, the MJ12 documents as well as other lesser known events, such as, the Nuremburg Germany event of 1561. The novel also incorporates several historical events such as, the Kennedy assassination, the Cuban missile crisis, and the Watergate scandal resulting in a new and unique twist on the old aliens on Earth story.

He expects to die along the way.

Months later, a massive vessel appears above Santa Monica Bay. Walt is attacked by a crablike monstrosity in a mountain stream. The virus that ended humanity wasn’t created by humans.

Ryan and Essie

By Sarah Scheele

The story of how Ryan and Essie went into a great new world–and what they did there . . .

All his life, 11-year-old Ryan has dreamed of becoming an astronomer–but not, it turns out, of actually going into space. When a public event brings a complete stranger named Essie to the observatory his father directs, she bounces into Ryan’s alcove.

Ryan’s life will never be the same again. And neither will the lives of a whole lot of other people.

Ms. Scheele’s tale starts out in a normal enough world: Ryan and Essie meet at an observatory in Texas, where Ryan spends a lot of time because his dad is an astronomer and which Essie, who is home schooled, visits on a field trip with her parents. The two kids are complete opposites and really start off on the wrong foot. Studious, arrogant Ryan and overly outgoing Essie are probably the most realistic average modern-day middle-schoolers I’ve ever read. They certainly have their faults and are sometimes downright nasty to each other, but the way they interact and argue is rather entertaining. I cared about them and wanted to see them friends…if left unchecked, kids that age get so wrapped up in themselves they don’t realize the need to understand other people. And that’s what the relationship part of the story is largely about—kids learning how to respect each other. And the way Ryan and Essie learn is a way no child reading this will soon forget.

Ending up on a space shuttle through Essie’s thoughtlessness, and getting sucked into a wormhole, also via Essie’s thoughtlessness, the kids end up at a planet called Caricanus. There they are plunged into an adventure involving alien royalty, magical pillars, the fates of planets, and astonishing discoveries about themselves. I’m somewhat of a dunce when it comes to the names of places and “people” groups in science fiction, so I was a bit lost when there were so many to remember, but I doubt scifi lovers will have a problem with that.

The suspense kept me turning pages, the characters were funny and had snappy dialogue, the foreign galaxy was fun to imagine, and the ending made me tear up. The book includes biblical allusions and a strong lesson that kids won’t even know they’re learning until wham! And then they’ll care so much about the story and be so happy at the conclusion that they’ll care about the message.

I recommend this fun book for kids who like science fiction or fantasy, say from age eight to fourteen or so, or really, for any age—it’s one that adults and young adults like me can enjoy!

The Quantum Door

By Jonathan Ballagh

Discover what lies beyond the Quantum Door. The mysterious woods behind Brady and Felix’s house have been deserted for years. But things change when a fence goes up and the brothers notice strange things happening at night. From the moment they dare cross the fence, the brothers enter a world of dark technological secrets that will rock the foundation of everything they know to be true. And once they enter, there’s no turning back. Some places are better left alone…

Suitable for early teens upwards, Jonathan Ballagh’s debut The Quantum Door is the story of two brothers Brady and Felix, who happen to venture onto their neighbour’s land and discover a gateway to a huge adventure filled with technological marvels.
After rescuing a young girl, Nova and her robotic dog Achilles, the brothers find themselves wrapped up in a complicated scenario involving everything from rogue robots to all-powerful AI beings and all manner of strange and wonderful creatures they meet along the way.

The story progresses effortlessly without getting too bogged down in the science, but the writing is confident enough to make even the younger reader understand the basics of the technology represented in the story, and cleverly mixes factual science with more fantastical elements to bridge the gap and make it believable.

A classic coming-of-age adventure fused with a epic techno-rollercoaster that demands you turn every page, and a very impressive debut.

Revitalized

By Jessica Cage

Two years of seclusion has a way of changing you, especially when all you can do is try to get out of bed every day. After a shocking diagnosis and her parents’ disappearance, Alexa dove into her own world of routine and medication. Against her own wishes, the fates decide it is time for her to step back into reality, only the world she is reentering is not the one she remembers. Her grandmother leaves her with a cure for her disease and many unanswered questions. And a new presence challenges her to come out of her solitude. Who is this guy with those captivating grey eyes and energy that draws Alexa into him? He has the answers she looks for, but is she ready to follow him to uncover them?

Lets start off with this book was SUPER interesting. It was a really great book overall. Some parts were super emotional and really, the story itself had you on edge about what the outcome would be. I agree with others about the book in the fact that even if you can’t relate, you relate to the main charatcer. Alexa. So alone and such sadness, but yet still so wanting to live.

I thought from the start the book was going to be one of those heart wrecking books, but not in the least. Its a roller coaster of awesomesauce. Paranormal, Fantasy, and self-awareness. It is a book about destiny. I really enjoyed some of the big plot twists. It kept your attention and kept you reading.

With an ending like we have here I was SO happy to know book two was coming our way and we wouldn’t be left with nothing. Its one of those hold you breath endings. So good.

I found it a really easy and intriguing read. It was a set up book for the start of the series and you are not left wanting. It builds a nice basis for the next book and you really get a good introduction to the main characters. I loved the story itself and see it doing fantastic in the future. A great overall paranormal read. I look forward to the next book!!

THE PLAYERS

By Robert Dennis Wilson

SCIENCE OPENED A DOOR – SOMETHING CAME THROUGH!
(It has an agenda!)

This exciting Sci-Fi/Spiritual Warfare novel overflows with inter-dimensional visitors, psychic experimentation, threats of inter-dimensional warfare, disappearing people, lots of action, and enough romance to keep it interesting.

Professor Horace Thompson and his team have just successfully completed a world-changing experiment in the newly legitimized science of Parapsychology. Using electronic devices that boost the mind’s weak ESP signals, they successfully communicated thoughts over a distance of 56 miles.

Suddenly their world changes even more. Their experiment opens a crack between dimensions and the form of a huge god-like alien temporarily materializes in front of them. Before he disappears, this apparently peaceful being informs them that his advanced race, the “Teachers”, desires to not only once again assist mankind, as they have in the ancient past, but to also support them against their common interdimensional enemy.

What does it all mean? Two ancient and diametrically opposed alien civilizations have for millennia chosen the planet Earth to be the ideological arena where they confront each other. One side champions Law and a society based on unchanging Absolutes; the other promotes Liberty, License, and Free Choice.

Throughout the ages of Man, we, like unsuspecting pieces on a chess board, have been chosen to be the PLAYERS in their deadly game. But a change is taking place, one which will force every inhabitant of Earth to choose active membership in one side or the other. The alien Overlords are suddenly moving out of the shadows and our planet is about to become the devastated battleground – the Arena – where they will openly face each other in final and ultimate conflict. And God help the human who gets in their way or who chooses the wrong side!

PRAISE FOR The Legacy of the Key!

  • “Trans-dimensional Romance? This has to be one of the most detailed books that I have read that wasn’t dry or boring. I mean I could imagine being in the Reece’s bedroom and feeling the soft fabric of the couch. I could see Harrison’s eyes, and what beautiful eyes they were. Not only that but the plot is actually something that I had not read before. I mean you get paranormals and stuff, but this is completely different, realms inside of realms? The worlds and people that S.L. created really blew me away.” -Andi from Fangfrakingtastic Reviews

After the Winter

By Mark R. Healy

The Earth is in ruins. Cities and nations destroyed. Those who survive the onslaught succumb to the cold blackness of winter. A handful of machines finally emerge into the light, lost and directionless. They are the last remnants of civilisation.

Brant is a synthetic – a machine who has the appearance and emotions of the humans who made him. He is hunted across the wasteland by cruel scavengers known as Marauders who are intent on cannibalising his body to prolong their own lives.

Brant carries a great burden as he tries to return home: a secret that can change the world. Against the unforgiving desert, the twisted denizens of this new world and his own dark past he needs to find a way back at any cost.

I find myself judging a book by how much I pick it up to read it and can’t put it down. This is that kind of book. I love this book so much, I went ahead and bought the other two in this series and, I intend to eventually read other books by this author. If you like books with excellent character development then check out this series. If you’re more into an action-oriented story, then you will probably be disappointed.

The plot involves an end-of-the world scenario and Brant is a synthetic human. I say synthetic human because unlike an android, Brant experiences emotions (there is another reason Brant experiences emotions but I don’t want to give away the plot). And, Brant, is on a mission–to save humanity. You see, this is an Earth where all plant life and, apparently, animals died off due to a conflict (it was never explicitly stated it was a nuclear war but from the description it had to be). So, literally, every human died from starvation and disease. Brant wants to change that…and that is the heart of this story. Great read and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

As her doctor, Avery brings her back to health and in time grows to form an attachment for her . . . an attachment threatened when the spy who killed his friend is ordered to assassinate Layanna, too.

Vanguard Maria Martinez has lived her entire life within the towering walls.

The Purge of Babylon

By Sam Sisavath
ONE NIGHT. THAT WAS ALL IT TOOK.

Creatures that once lived in the shadows, hidden from humankind, have risen, spreading like a plague across the globe over the course of a single night. Their numbers growing exponentially through infection, these seemingly unkillable creatures have swallowed up whole cities and collapsed unprepared governments.

Survivors call it The Purge.

Against all odds, a disparate group of survivors has emerged from that blood-soaked night that devastated the planet and reduced humanity to an endangered species. Among the survivors are two ex-Army Rangers, a businesswoman, and a third-year medical student. But surviving The Purge was one thing – staying alive is another matter entirely.

Hope exists in the countryside, in the form of a self-sustaining underground facility designed to withstand any calamity. But in order to reach its safety, the survivors must travel hundreds of treacherous miles, with the night – and the creatures that dwell within it – always at their backs.

The rules are simple: stay out of the dark, load up on silver bullets, and whatever you do, stay alive.

The road to salvation has begun …

From Chaos Born

By Michael R. Hicks

For millennia before the bloody first encounter with humanity as told in In Her Name: First Contact, the Kreelan race has been ruled by war. Countless civilizations have risen and fallen back into savagery, with total annihilation averted only by the warrior priests and priestesses of the ancient martial orders.

Near the end of the Fourth Age, a powerful warrior from a brooding fortress deep in the Great Wastelands began her bloody rise to power. Syr-Nagath, known as the Dark Queen, began a brutal war of conquest across the face of the Homeworld, secretly planning to destroy the ancient orders and resurrect the dark ways of her race’s apocalyptic past.

What the Dark Queen did not anticipate was the birth of Keel-Tath, a child unlike any other, a child foretold in an ancient prophecy, and who was destined to unite her race.

A child the Dark Queen must kill, no matter the cost…

Forager

By Peter R Stone

Award-Winning Finalist in the “Fiction: Science Fiction” category of the 2015 USA Best Book Awards
Over 18,000 Copies Downloaded/Sold
Twenty-year-old Ethan Jones lives in a post apocalyptic, oppressive society that terminates anyone with mutations caused by nuclear radiation in an effort to keep the human race pure. Because of that, he lives every day in fear for his life, for he has an incredible mutation that gives him an edge when foraging in Melbourne’s ruins. An edge he uses to survive encounters with the vile Skel savages who roam those ruins.

His life becomes complicated when he rescues a mysterious Japanese girl from the Skel and brings her back with him, for she breaks the town’s rigid conventions in her pursuit of him, placing their lives in jeopardy. Her odd behaviour and probing questions baffle him, as does the fact that he understands her when she speaks in Japanese.

At the same time, the Skel ramp up their attacks on the foraging teams. Is this part of a larger plan that could spell the town’s doom? And why do the Skel suddenly possess advanced technology – who is backing them, and why?

Keeping his mutation secret, uncovering the girl’s true intentions and trying to save the town all vie for Ethan’s attention. And if he fails, not only his life, but the lives of all, are at stake.

* This professionally edited, updated version of Forager was uploaded to Amazon on 7th May’15. *

Forager is the first instalment in the Forager Trilogy by author Peter Stone. Books two and three, Infiltrator and Expatriate are available now.

“The main thing that I really liked about Forager was that I was constantly taken by surprise.” — From Trips Down Imagination Road.

“I love that everyone in Ethan’s home is one way, while the Japanese girl he saves is almost the exact opposite. Woman are to be seen and not heard, but this girl has guts like you wouldn’t believe.” — From Journey with Books

Book 1 of 4

I have read all of Mr. Tufo’s books and can say with all honesty that his creations are suburb! They come to life, you want to meet them and he has done it again with the creation of Book of Riley! I am in love with Ben-Ben, when Jesse (the two-legged girl cub) realized that Ben-Ben was helping to save her….oh, I teared right up! I am amazed at how Mr. Tufo was able to create a realistic point of view from a dog’s stance, I laughed me butt off when Riley talks about having a sense of humor with the whole stopping in front of you thing (most dog owners will understand that meaning). This read is so very worth it and I cannot wait until the next installment to see where Riley, Ben-Ben, (the insufferable cat) Patches, Jesse and Zachary end up next as they travel to Colorado to escape those rotten zombies!

The Girls From Alcyone

By Cary Caffrey

Sigrid and Suko are two girls from the impoverished and crime-infested streets of 24th century Earth. Sold into slavery to save their families from financial ruin, the girls are forced to live out their lives in service to the Kimura Corporation, a prestigious mercenary clan with a lineage stretching back long before the formation of the Federated Corporations.

Known only to Kimura, the two girls share startling secret—a rare genetic structure not found in tens of millions of other girls.

But when their secret becomes known, Sigrid and Suko quickly find themselves at the center of a struggle for power. Now, hunted by men who would seek to control them, Sigrid and Suko are forced to fight for their own survival, and for the freedom of the girls from Alcyone.

Excerpt:

Sigrid stood in the center of what had once been the Academy grounds on Alcyone. Now, all that remained were the burned and collapsed remnants of the school and dormitories. Smoke still wisped up from the blackened piles of lumber and debris. The stench was raw and acrid, threatening to overwhelm her sensors.

“There’s no way Independents did this,” Christian said. “It looks like a whole battalion landed here.”

Frantic, Sigrid scanned the area again, searching desperately for signs of the girls, but nothing turned up in her sensory modes. She tried calling out with her comlink. If they were in range, they’d pick up the signal. But there was still nothing. Not even the orbital satellites showed any sign of the girls, or survivors for that matter. Whoever had done this had been brutal and thorough.

Sigrid knew she would kill them.

The Golden Age of Sail has Returned — in the Year 2352

When his mother dies in a flitter crash, eighteen-year-old Ishmael Horatio Wang must find a job with the planet company or leave the system–and NerisCo isn’t hiring. With credits running low, and prospects limited, he has just one hope…to enlist for two years with a deep space commercial freighter. Ishmael, who only rarely visited the Neris Orbital, and has never been off-planet alone before, finds himself part of an eclectic crew sailing a deep space leviathan between the stars.

Join the crew of the SC Lois McKendrick, a Manchester built clipper as she sets solar sails in search of profit for her company and a crew each entitled to a share equal to their rating.

“Incredibly realistic. You would swear Mr. Lowell was writing a personal history of his youth on a deep space cargo ship. Stunningly eloquent and crisp prose takes you on a journey of discovery reminiciant of Dana s classic Two Years Before The Mast. Only Dana had the advantage of taking such a voyage, Lowell will just make you believe he did, and with this book, he invites you to go with him.” –Michael J. Sullivan, author of The Riyria Revelations

Nathan Lowell tells a tale so real, you can practically smell the spaceship galley s coffee — and almost see the engine oil beneath your fingernails. Hero Ishmael is clearly destined for great things. Thankfully for readers, so is Nathan Lowell.” –J.C. Hutchins, author of 7th Son: Descent and Personal Effects: Dark Art

“This is a marvelous story, I like coming of age stories and this is a mesmerizing one. It is also a nice change to have an everyday story about a young boy learning the ropes in the mercantile fleet in the 24th century during the golden age of the solar clippers…The characters are at center in story, they are detailed, warm and easy to love. I wouldn t mind at all working on the SC McKendrick it seems a nice place to be in much like the company I work at myself…Quarter Share is a mesmerizing tale of a young man coming of age and finding his place as a crewman aboard a solar clipper…Make sure you have free time and download the book is my recommendation.” –Cybermage, Reading & Watching Science Fiction

Playback Effect

By Karen A. Wyle

“O wad some Power the giftie gie us/To see oursels as ithers see us!” But what if we could see others as they see themselves?

New technology records the highlights of emotional experience for others to share. Buy a helmet and you can feel the exhilaration of an Olympic ski jumper, or the heat of a lucid dreamer’s erotic imaginings. Commit a crime, and you may be sentenced to endure the suffering you inflicted on others.

But such recordings may carry more information than the public has realized. What will criminals learn about their victims? When a husband is wrongfully convicted of injuring his wife, how will their marriage change? And what uses will a sociopath find for recordings of the experience of death?

**Awarded Awesome Indies’ Seal of Excellence**

“This is a novel that’s impossible to pigeonhole into a genre. The presence of a technology that permits recording and playback of dreams is science fiction, but it’s also a legal/crime thriller. The author, who has an extensive legal background, weaves it seamlessly into the story from start to finish. . . . The author uses third person point of view, and moves from one character to another to keep the suspense level high and the tension as tight as a steel cable on a suspension bridge. . . . Dialogue, descriptions, and narrative are flawless – not a wasted word anywhere. This is a book that will linger in your thoughts long after you’ve stopped reading – and are likely to invade your dreams. I give it a resounding five stars.” — Awesome Indies

“If you enjoy a well-imagined thesis on the implications of future technology, or a nuanced exploration of human relationships, or just a gripping techno-thriller, then Playback Effect is well worth a look.” — Strange Charm
