How would you handle a serial killer at the world's end?
The first book in the bestselling British apocalyptic trilogy readers have called "absolutely gripping from the first page".

Detective Burnett is trying to work out who the hell turned his sleepy Yorkshire village into a murder town.
When the skies fill with a mysterious storm, each of them wakes to find streets filled with bodies. The world they knew has gone, and their old lives with it. Tom finds himself at the mercy of a deranged soldier, Jen has to keep two love-struck teenagers alive, and Burnett must track down a killer who sees the apocalypse as an opportunity for more mayhem. If they can't band together, the fate of what remains of humanity hangs in the balance.
Buckle up for an apocalyptic thrill ride to find out who will survive this tale of murder at the world's end.
"Corpses lay all over the street. Some were burnt, their limbs curled into themselves from the heat. Some were crushed, entangled in one of several car wrecks that dotted the road. Limbs, torsos and heads were strewn haphazardly in their wake. Some were just dead, lying there oblivious to the carnage that surrounded them."
"The Crown Prince is dead, shot in the head. War is coming on iron feet."
A murdered Prince. A Gilded Empire. A clockwork locket that tick-tocks dark matter.
The year is 1889 and Austria's Crown Prince Rudolf has been found with a bullet in his brain. Immediately, all eyes are turned to the Empire of Steam's Mad Lord of Lasingstoke, a notorious ghost hunter and the last man to see the Crown Prince alive. As the first whispers of war cast a preternatural shadow over Europe, an international manhunt is launched to bring the Mad Lord and his clockwork brother to justice. Unfortunately, young criminologist Ivy Savage has written herself into the plot and it takes all of her resourcefulness to keep them one step ahead of the firing squad.
From airships over the Black Forest to a stolen ride on the Orient Express, it's clear that the Gilded Empire is not the only thing hunting the Mad Lord. Ghost horses and iron giants, long-dead saints and an archduchess more cable than flesh - all want something from the de Lacey brothers, not the least of which being the resurrection of the crown prince himself. But Ivy knows that at the heart of it, two lockets alone control the destiny of Empires and the clockwork is ticking as they race back to Vienna and the dangerous labyrinth that lies beneath...
Traversing back to the ancient Prime Martial World from modern age, Austin finds himself in a younger body as he wakes up.
Yet, the young man he possesses was a miserable dimwit, what a bummer!
But it doesn't matter as his mind is sound and clear. Possessing this younger and stronger body, he will fight his way to become the God of martial arts, and rule the whole Martial World!
A rugged survivor of a global war, Ezasen finds himself on a rebooted tropical world without technology where giant flora and fauna mingle with angels and a new caste of powerful, perfected humans. He learns that the God King has established His throne and rules with swift justice and a rod of iron.
From warring tribes wielding sticks, long-lived Ezasen watches a largely ignorant and stiff-necked culture advance to interplanetary terraformation and interdimensional travel.
Ezasen has a thousand years to help rebuild civilization and persuade his descendants that the King is also their Judge, that a seething evil resides in each one of them, and that regardless of which age they live in, Jesus is still the answer to their every longing.
"Ezasen thrust his elbows out, trying to keep his feet as the crowd washed relentlessly down the dirty street. The reek of smoke and blood offended his nostrils with every labored breath. He hadn't eaten for days. The shouts and sweaty, frightened faces around him made it clear. They were running for their lives."
The world of Realm is deep, full and rich with Scriptural principles. It is a time-swept, adventurous feast that must be rumanated slowly to give more thought to the spiritual truths presented within the story. It reveals honestly that not all souls will be saved from an eternity in Hell. As always when we ponder the end of history our hearts are convicted and energized to pray for our unsaved family and friends.
The future kingdom of the Realm series is a delight to visit due to John's engaging writing style and seemingly boundless imagination. The Messianic Age he envisions opens the mind to fresh possibilities of what that glorious future will be like. The author's mind takes flight in many surprising ways, but manages to remain well-grounded in a biblical foundation. Look forward to more episodes in this biblically solid series.

Alternately hated, loved, trusted, and feared by the city she's sworn to protect (sometimes all on the same day), Jolene Faraday, A.K.A. Daystar, has finally crossed the line.
In a fit of rage, her actions led to the death of the supervillain known as Render.

And when one of their "heroes" loses control and crosses it, fear of supers reaches an all-time high.
And it's not just the citizens of her city who are afraid. The Tribunal is calling for Jolene's arrest, which Portia, leader of StrikeForce, refuses to comply with. StrikeForce's insistence on protecting Jolene only adds fuel to the fire.

"Do you love me?"
Shock burned through my veins and the world stopped turning as I looked up at her. How could she ask such a question of me?
"D, Tell me our story... " She whispered.
"You know it already." I responded. Surprised at her request, I threw a log into the centre of the fire, causing it to splutter and spark.
"I know my story, it's true, but ours is different." Her voice was firm and the silent request filled the icy air between us.
"Kalebra," I sighed, "Is this how you want to spend this night, this of all nights?"
Laughing, she turned to me.
"If my world is to end tomorrow, then yes, this is exactly how I want to spend this night of all nights. Tell me our story D, tell it as it will be told by those that come after us."

The Dark Elf is my so-called Action-Adventure romance for the Crimson Black Series.

I'm Evan and I hate my jobs.
I work at a call center, so you can imagine what I have to go through in the course of the day -- the crying, yelling and cursing. That's before I get to work, after that it's all downhill from there. At least the people I work with are good company. That makes my second job much worse.
My other job is worse. I get hired out to sabotage companies like the one I'm at now with my new friends by bad luck. I walk in, lay the whammy down on something and leave. The pay's good, but all the money in the world doesn't help me sleep well at all. My less than sympathetic co-workers and boss don't help matters.
How do I keep my sanity and a roof over my head?

And oh yeah, there's five dead bodies, and no one knows how they are connected. Now she's drawn into a madcap investigation at the casino where she's managed to snag a job. She must navigate learning her new mage abilities, a topless burlesque show, a jealous girlfriend, gamblers of all varieties, and magical chocolate cake, all while not setting herself or others on fire before the murderer makes her the next victim.
A paracozy (aka Paranormal cozy mystery)
A humorous adventure!
"Ella's new job turns out to be more than she bargained for when she finds herself immersed in a world of mages, spells, and murder. This imaginative and addictive read is sure to please fans of mystery and magic!" Kristina B., Proofreader, Red Adept Editing

This is the second book in the Seven Circles Series. Ston and Ivy arrive in the fourth circle, a world perceived as ruined by contamination brought in during an Alignment of the Circles. They are taken prisoner by the evil and corrupt regime of the Judicial. In the course of helping one of the last of the deposed royal family, they form an unexpected alliance in the fight to overthrow the dictator and save the world.

'Somewhere' can be read as it is, since the story will stand on its own. However, for the most enjoyment I recommend that you read Book 1, 'Neither Here Nor There', before this one. Book 3, 'Elsewhere', and book 4, 'From Here to There', follow this one and continue the exciting story.
