Empire of Bones  by Terry Mixon


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.

The Glooming  by John Triptych


The end of the world is finally here. And it will be nothing like what you’d expect.

All over the earth, strange and horrific events begin to unfold. A US combat team in Iraq comes under attack from mystical forces, an anthropology professor has an eerie encounter at Stonehenge, a runaway teen finds a very strange pet in Arizona, a young orphan in Siberia meets a terrifying old woman, and a pair of NYPD detectives discovers the ghastly doings of a supernatural cult.

A large and diverse group of characters struggle to survive as civilization begins to collapse all around them. As each one realizes their true potential, every one of them must go through a personal, danger-filled journey in order to turn back the sweeping tide of chaos and destruction that threatens the entire world as we know it. Many will die, others will be corrupted, and the remaining few will be the humanity’s only hope.

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

Vampire for Hire: Books One and Two by J.R. Rain


Over two million copies sold! Multiple USA Today bestsellers. #1 in Vampire Romance, Urban Fantasy, and Women Sleuths! The #1 vampire series for three straight months!

Included in the set are the first two novels in the “Vampire for Hire” series. All for one low price!

MOON DANCE (Vampire for Hire #1)

Six years ago federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire. Now the world at large thinks Samantha has developed a rare skin disease, a disease which forces her to quit her day job and stay out of the light of the sun. Now working the night shift as a private investigator, Samantha is hired by Kingsley Fulcrum to investigate the murder attempt on his life, a horrific scene captured on TV and seen around the country. But as the case unfolds, Samantha discovers Kingsley isn’t exactly what he appears to be; after all, there is a reason why he survived five shots to the head.

VAMPIRE MOON (Vampire for Hire #2)

Sequel to Moon Dance, private investigator Samantha Moon finds herself hunting down a powerful crime lord and protecting an innocent woman from her ruthless ex-husband—all while two very different men vie for her heart. And as the stakes grow higher and her cases turn personal, Samantha Moon will do whatever it takes to protect the innocent and bring two cold-blooded killers to justice—her own brand of justice.
