It is the twenty-third century, and Britain is emerging from a century spent as the pariah of nations; Korea has an empire, the Pope is out and proud and both major Christian faiths have run out of money. Cheerfully Brutal is an acid rock space comedy which follows members of a new baby boom into adulthood.
When a sharp knock echoes through the house, Charlie and Sophie Wood's lives are changed forever. Strangers appear with a forceful, violent wind that tears the curtains and shatters the windows. Narrowly escaping the attack with the help of a mysterious old man, Charlie and Sophie find themselves suddenly-impossibly-a part of the wind, soaring over the countryside.
On the run, the pair discover the world of Elementals-a wonderful, dangerous place, rich with nature and those who control it. They encounter enemies with the power to wield water, hurl jets of fire, shape the forest, and travel in the wind, as they learn that everyone, good and bad alike, are after their lives. With the help of the old man, a lot of training, and a little of their own cunning, Charlie and Sophie set out to clear their names-and save a world they didn't even know existed.
ELEMENTALS is a middle-grade fantasy story of family, adventure, deception, and the magic of nature.
The year is 1912. A London newspaper reporter makes a horrifying discovery involving a member of the House of Commons: indeed, as the reporter gradually uncovers, Edward Lyons is in fact a vicious, bloodthirsty vampire. Sensing that fate is conspiring against him, Lyons decides it's time to head for America. His means of escape is by traveling on what, to him, is just another ship. However, he makes a rather unfortunate choice: the ship he's sailing on is the brand-new TITANIC.
Meanwhile, TITANIC'S owner- J. Bruce Ismay- is a pampered, blessed "man about town." As he prepares to sail aboard TITANIC, he cannot possibly know it will be the ship's one and only voyage. He will be hopelessly stuck in the middle of a collision with destiny that doesn't involve just a ship and an iceberg... CALL ME ISMAY is a masterful work of historical fiction by author Sean McDevitt.

In the war-torn lands of East and West Eden, a great power called soulfire dwells within every living person. Everyone is born into one of six classes, each with different incredible effects: restoration, amplification, elemental, coercion, alchemist, and unique. Abraham, an ordinary railroad worker, is thrust into an adventure -- along with friends and foes who are able to wield this power to its greatest effect -- after he discovers that a monster, long thought to be mere mythology, might, in fact, be real. Cachi the Demon King, the devil in a religion that had long ago faded into obscurity, now poses a threat to the already unstable world. With the help of his best friend Isaac as well as Capala, an old classmate turned mercenary, Abraham sets out to discover the truth behind the myth of the Demon King. The hunt is on, but is Abraham the hunter or the prey?
