Once these monsters consumed all the animals, insects, birds, plants, and people, they began eating away at the planet itself, digging into the core until it exploded, sending debris across the universe carrying the seeds of these monsters.

One of them, growing in a forest in Littleton, IN, had been manipulating a little girl from a broken home, for years, to bring it humans to eat.

In a warl that darkness has beset with heinous acts that cripple both families and kingdoms alike, the curse of fear and disbelief that keeps the people from preparing to do battle with the Sorcerer's amassing hordes must be broken if the foul invaders are to be rebuffed and freedom retained. And as fate would have it, a woman who had her childhood ripped away and replaced with suffering unimaginable is the very one who can break the evil enchantment, that is, if she can overcome the troubling past that continually hounds her. Entering a subterranean realm filled with horrors where she was held prisoner as a child, the young woman undertakes a quest to learn to sing a song whose magic can break the debilitating spell that was cast over her. While she struggles to survive her ordeal, a war rages on the surface above. Trying to stop the Sorcerer from conquering the last of the kingdoms to escape his wicked grasp, a beleaguered throng of warriors fight a fierce battle they will surely lose if the young woman doesn't arrive in time with the song's inimitable magic in hand. Not wanting to leave the "Prophetess" without resources, the warl's inscrutable magic provides companions to help the woman return to the "Cave Forgetfulness." Those who will stand by her side as she confronts the monster who took her innocence from her includes a young man who has found the "Hammer of Power," a shape-shifting wizard, the Elf Man, and one of the legendary griffin who has taken it upon himself to be her personal guardian. The "Battle of Nyeg Warl" is the first of four books that tells the epic tale of a land struggling to keep from being crushed beneath the darkness' increasing weight. You'll be swept up by the saga of two young people destined to become the "Prophetess" and the "Hammer Bearer" and carried along on the currents of an unfolding drama that places them at the tip of the spear that is thrust at the merciless invader's heart. Both broad in scope and perilous in depth, ...

What if monsters were real? What if they were outside of your house right now? Not the fantasies that we've all come to know, but real monsters that want to kill you. What would you do if you were literally changed into a murderous creature of the night? What would you do? Now you have urges and needs that drive you to end the lives of others. It builds and builds until you cannot fight it anymore, and then it crashes over you in an unstoppable wave. You crave death itself. Would you run, hide, give up your wife, or your family to protect them from yourself? Would you revel in it, the power? If you run and are on your own, what then? How do you stay hidden on the outer fringe of society when you're always pulling people into the shadows to die? These are the questions that Sam has to face once his own life is taken at the hands of an unknown beast. Can he stay with the ones he loves, or should he abandon them for their own safety? Once he realizes the power of the monster that skims beneath the surface, he must face reality. He is alone. At least, that is what he believes until he meets others that are privy to the dark world around him. As Sam uses his newfound friends to try and determine what exactly he has been changed into, will he get too close to them? Will he tell them the truth? Will he learn what he is in time to save the people he cares about? What will Sam decide? What would you decide?

Occupational Hazards: The Blue-Collar Omnibus by Geoff Sturtevant 4.6 Stars (15 Reviews)    Price verified 16 minutes ago

Occupational Hazards is an omnibus of acclaimed novelettes from the "Return to the Dirt" and "Just Speculating" collections, and new, exclusive stories only available in this book. The stories exemplify the unsavory side of our everyday existence. Existentialism, absurdism, and outlandish humor merge with ordinary, workaday life for a unique and hilarious perspective of the human experience. Occupational Hazards is an unflinching ride through the absurdity of it all. Not recommended for the faint of heart or easily offended. But if meaty stories are what you're after... I hope you're hungry. "In time-honoured fashion, these taut tales of work and death employ humour to highlight the worst aspects of human behaviour. They're sharp, savage slices of smartly observed social satire, with humour so bleak it raises blisters." -- murdermayhemandmore.com (on Return to the Dirt) "True to the Sturtevant style, each tale offers a penetrating view into humanity, opening the doors that people usually keep shuttered tight from prying eyes, and doing so with razor-sharp dialogue and a healthy dose of (sometimes) dark humor." -- Amazon reviewer ©2017 Geoff Sturtevant (P)2017 Geoff Sturtevant

The Purple Thread: Eighth-Century Saxon Missions In Europe by John Broughton (Legionary - A Next Chapter Imprint) 4.8 Stars (27 Reviews)    Price verified 16 minutes ago

It is 733 AD in Anglo-Saxon Britain - a time of warriors, war and religious extremes. Begiloc, a young freedman from Wimborne, is a man of action. But his world turns upside down when the young Briton and his best friend Meryn are ordered away to protect English missionaries in Germany. For a man accustomed to brutality, Begiloc has a soft spot for the purple-tinged mountains, waterfalls, lakes, animals, trees and flowers - beginning to muse whether they, rather than Man, do not better embody the essence of God. Mission follows mission across the continent, and Begiloc is driven ever further from his loved ones. His ultimate foe is the corrupt and cruel Bishop of Rems, Milo. Will Begiloc ever be free from his obligations to the Church, and reunited with those whom he has been so long separated? John Broughton's The Purple Thread is a historical thrill-ride across 8th century Europe, which also rings some very contemporary bells, and a tale of a man's psychological battle to sustain his faith and morality in the face of temptation and evil.

A young woman trapped in darkness faces a choice--a chance for love or the freedom of light? Stella lives in Noctum, land of eternal night. In Noctum, the stars shine so bright it feels like you can pluck them from the sky, festivals are held for each special moon, and the Northern Lights are worshipped every wintertide. But the darkness hides many sins. Draven, Noctum's ruthless immortal king, rules behind the protective walls of Caligo. While, outside in Darkwood, Stella and the other forest dwellers live in terror of foul creatures called the Shade. Life in Darkwood is brutal and brief. When her brother, a soldier in the Shadow Guard, is killed, Stella's hope wanes as the dangers that surround her close in. But stars shine brightest in the deepest dark, and when she witnesses one falling into the black heart of Darkwood, hope arrives in the unlikeliest manner. A stranger named Luc appears speaking of strange, impossible things -- of a golden disc called the sun, of lands drenched in light with vivid blue skies, and perhaps most startling of all, he claims that Noctum is under a curse that he has come to lift. To banish the darkness that covers the land, all he has to do is kill Draven. But curses are never easily broken and complications soon arise. Stella finds herself faced with an impossible choice -- Luc's life or the light she so desperately longs for. Because to gain one, she will have to lose the other. Dangerously alluring, this is a story that will immerse you in its world and leave you wanting more. This is an unputdownable book.

This full-length novel answers that and many other questions regarding Earth's first interstellar colony.

In Gene Skellig's terrifyingly plausible military techno-thriller, Winter Kill - War With China Has Already Begun, you will be immediately drawn into the strong characters of this richly detailed adventure. As the pace accelerates, you will become wrapped up in the action at the local level. At the same time, your thirst for the economic, geopolitical and military context of the war will be thoroughly satisfied. With unexpected developments and twists, this story will confront you with the daunting challenge of surviving in the Winter Kill world, just as it confronted the people of the Sunshine Coast communities of the Pacific Northwest and numerous strategic locations around the world. When the Nuclear Extinction War (NEW) begins, it comes as a complete surprise to just about everybody. But for retired military planner, Casey Callaghan, it represents the culmination of the worst case scenario which he had feared was inevitable - and one for which he had made extensive preparations. His motivation is the security of his wife and five small children, his extended family and as many of his friends and neighbors as he can save. The world is faced with the unimaginable devastation of a global nuclear winter which kills off 95% of humankind like the winter kill of a crop in nature. Survival has suddenly become very personal. To make matters worse, a rogue police officer is out to get Casey. While Casey and Constable Walker wage war on a very personal scale, the global war grinds towards its inevitable outcome. After reading Winter Kill, when you consider our relationship with China you might see, as Casey Callaghan does, that we are blindly rushing towards catastrophe. All it will take to set off a devastating cascade of events is one repugnant conclusion in the mind of an evil genius. You will also find yourself reflecting on real word events such as the Arab Spring, the steady rise in the price of gold and the talk of an attack on Iran as subjects well ...

It's not anything special, simply managing the leasing office of this very fancy and highly exclusive neighborhood, yet the perks mean I get my second chance. Speaking of perks, my rent-free house is right beside not just one handsome man, but five! Each one is hotter than the last, and all of them seem interested in me. Maybe I can't remember the last date I was on, but if I want to master being a strong woman, then this is a good place to start. It's just dating, right? Normal life stuff. Not so much. Everyone around us has these strange golden eyes. Then there are the questions no one will answer. And who cares if there's a lot of wildlife running around at night? I do, especially when a wolf keeps sneaking into my backyard. I have a kid to worry about. Things have got to change before someone gets bitten! Normal is going out the window, and fast. My neighbors say I don't belong here, and they don't mean because I'm Hispanic. Never mind that I just heard a man growl. Now they're talking about fated somethings, and I'm pretty sure they mean me. I feel like I'm going crazy! Because when I said I wanted to learn how to be strong, this wasn't what I meant at all. Still, when it comes to taking care of my little girl, I will definitely learn how to be the biggest bitch on the block. I just hope that doesn't become literal. Wolf's Bane is a 136,000 word, full-length novel with multiple love interests. Note: Wolves Next Door series contains profanity, consensual sex, and one adult woman who falls for multiple younger men. This is the first book in a trilogy.

Certain People: short story classics by Edith Wharton (idb) Price verified 4 hours ago

Charlie Durand, Professor of Romance Languages in a western University, had been spending the first weeks of a hard-earned Sabbatical holiday in wandering through Flanders and Belgium, and on the fatal second of August had found himself at Louvain, whose University, a year or two previously, had honoured him with a degree. On the advice of the American consul he had left Belgium at once, and, deeply disturbed by the dislocation of his plans, had carried his shaken nerves to a lost corner of Normandy, where he had spent the ensuing weeks in trying to think the war would soon be over. It was not that he was naturally hard or aloof about it, or wanted to be; but the whole business was so contrary to his conception of the universe, and his fagged mind, at the moment, was so incapable of prompt readjustment, that he needed time to steady himself. Besides, his conscience told him that his first duty was to get back unimpaired to the task which just enabled him to keep a mother and two sisters above want. His few weeks on the continent had cost much more than he had expected, and most of his remaining francs had gone to the various appeals for funds that penetrated even to his lost corner; and he decided that the prudent course (now that everybody said the war was certainly going to last till November) would be to slip over to cheap lodgings in London, and bury his nose in the British Museum.

Tyus Anthony is the fastest man in football. He's also one of the sexiest. He's an advertising icon, his cut body and smoldering eyes on billboards across the country. Women want him. Agents stalk him. Coaches have tried for years to poach him, but what matters to Tyus more than anything is family, and that includes his team. He'd do anything for the Kodiaks. He's willing to forsake everything and everyone for the good of the team. Until he meets Mila Greene. Mila is a born party girl. A true American heiress, she's been using her family's money and influence to jet set around the globe since before she could drive. Her life has been one scandal after another for as long as anyone can remember - until last year. Suddenly, without warning or explanation, Mila put the party animal inside her to rest. She's out of the tabloids and attending college, trying to get her life in line, but it's not as easy as it sounds. The moment she meets Tyus, the animal awakes with a growl. Tyus is hot. He's fun. He's trying to resist her, which just makes her want him even more. But he's also wildly off-limits for one very big, multi-billion dollar reason: Mila's father owns the Kodiaks. That fact should send Tyus running from MIla as fast as his feet can carry him, but as much as he understands the risks, he can't deny the rewards. Mila is trouble, but she's also exciting. Mesmerizing. There's something about the secrets hiding in her eyes and the carefree abandon of her laugh that pull you in and refuse to let you go. Big things happen around her. Great things. Terrible things. Things that could set you up for life or raze your world to the ground. Love is a dangerous play to make, but when it's for the right person? That sh#t is worth risking a broken heart. *Due to language and sexual content, this book is not recommended for readers under 18. Each book in the Offensive Line series can be read as a STANDALONE.

Wrenn Grayson Mysteries are touted as "fast-paced rides that will have readers hot on the heels of Wrenn's leads. Though the historian's extensive knowledge has her barreling towards the answers, it's the seemingly dead ends and the detective-for-hire's one-of-a-kind process that'll have fans flipping the page." (Best Thrillers) This bundled series provides a double-header mystery in Book One, Deadly Homecoming at Rosemont. Wrenn must solve the murder of Trey Rosemont, found shot inside his family's mansion. Across town, Egyptian artifacts are stolen from Eastwood University, putting Gideon Douglas, Wrenn's longtime love, and his teaching career in jeopardy. Wrenn sets out to solve the murder and recover the artifacts, but her stubborn one-woman approach places her directly in the killer's path. Wrenn's next gripping adventure, Designs on Ivy's Locket, focuses on the theme of parents and children, separated by death, by theft, and by design. Wrenn takes on a difficult client in Kerry St. John. Kerry seeks justice for his great-grandfather's lifelong heartache. Wrenn meets the renowned jeweler through words recorded in his tattered journal. The year is 1946. He writes about the theft of a treasured locket and the identity of three possible suspects. As Wrenn investigates, she feels the past sending cold whispers down her spine. In Book Three, Lily White Lie, engravings on a pocketwatch, cryptic messages, Easter lilies, and sidelined spy Bret Kilmore combine to thrust historian Wrenn Grayson into the mysterious world of symbolism. Bret Kilmore, the series' new character, is a man of intricacies, of light and dark, and lingering shadows. The pocketwatch ticks off the time Wrenn and Bret don't have. While danger mounts, they watch every viable solution evaporate into mist. Stay tuned. The fourth ...

The Realm by J. Stephen Archer 4.4 Stars (13 Reviews)    Price verified 13 hours ago

FBI Agent Louis Freeman's life is out of control. In the middle of a messy divorce, shunned from the Bureau for a personal indiscretion, and a teenage son he doesn't understand, he focuses on his hobby: collecting conspiracy theories. After an invitation by a colleague to the Kansas City Field Office, with little left for Louis in his hometown, he packs up and heads to the Midwest to start over. Desperate to dive into work again, Louis is introduced to a severely shaken Federal witness who was found wandering the highway wearing medieval garb and suffering from what appear to be life-threatening sword wounds. The horrific story the traumatized man tells Louis is of a completely immersive, live action role-playing game where guests pay to live in authentic feudal times. Described as spanning hundreds of square miles and containing real castles, real kings, and mysterious boundaries, he also tells of a level of criminality that seems more like a wild conspiracy theory than an actual case. Louis' rigid sense of morality is tested when he's told to forget the case by his boss. After finding compelling evidence of a cover-up, he has no choice but to join the expansive 'game' and discover that not only are the kings and castles real, but so is the violence. Once inside, Louis will have to learn how to navigate the social, economic, and actual landscape of this feudal land in order to expose the mysterious and brutal truth behind The Realm.

Surgeon Richard Kurtz has a reputation at Easton Medical Center as a tough guy, a reputation that he considers absurd, despite the 300-pound biker on a drug induced rampage who Kurtz recently knocked out in the ER.

What would it mean if the winds of authoritarianism now blowing across America were to gain the upper hand? What sort of nation would we become? Joe Carlton knew the next morning would rewrite the future. Would it be a bloodbath or a 22nd century rebirth of American freedom. He shook his head. The whole thing seemed so absurd. Him leading a national insurrection. He wasn't a leader. Never claimed to be. And it wasn't as though he'd planned and built the rebellion from the ground up -- more like it built itself, trapping him inside in the process. But then, for Joe this had never been about political ideals. It was about paying a debt. The kind you can never really repay -- a debt for a betrayal that cost a man his life. It was that man's dream he'd been fighting for, not his own. A stranger's dream of a free America that led Joe to become the public face of the rebellion and a hunted man. He'd sacrificed so much for this other man's dream, and yet, he knew, the debt had still not been paid in full.

The Thunder & Shield Travelling Carnival is set up in New Orleans, Louisiana in October of 1956, with the hopes of bringing a little merriment to the storied city. Soon, the three men who make up the carnival's "charity division" are approached by a group of young folk who say their friend has been murdered and the police are ignoring the crime.

They quickly find that there is more to the case than they could ever have imagined. A local voodoo queen offers her assistance and with this new and strange ally they are thrown into battle against two formidable enemies. It becomes apparent that if the charity division fails to stop the evil that is taking place in New Orleans, the young men who came to them for help will surely perish, and possibly many, many more.

Contraband by George Foy (Lume Books) 3.5 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 13 hours ago

Freedom knows no boundaries... Joe 'Skid' Marak, aka the Pilot, is a compulsive smuggler. For profit, adventure and the sheer hell of it - it's more a way of life than a way of making a living. His home is the abandoned spire of Manhattan's TransCom Building. His friends are outcasts from a city fallen into decay and draconian bureaucracy. And his days are numbered. For it seems the freetraders of the world are disappearing, victims of a mysterious force known only as 'Bokon Taylay'. On his ECM-pak - a laptop mishmash of scramblers, sensors and sat-nav systems - the Pilot watches as his comrades vanish from the screen. His only clue is a smuggled message instructing him to track down a man called Hawkley: reputed author of the Smuggler's Bible, the only person who can crack the Taylay code - a man who may not even exist. As the Feds close in and the Wildnets shut down, the Pilot and an oddball bunch of companions embark on a desperate quest to save the last free trade on earth. Together they will travel a darkening world ripped by plague and repression, smuggling the only contraband worth carrying... human freedom.
