The sudden surge of elemental magic attracts an ancient evil hell bent on nothing less than the utter destruction of humankind. And they’ve just handed him the key.

He surrendered his soul to the Devil. She could be the one to save it. More than a century ago, Christian Harris gave up everything in a last desperate attempt to finally have the revenge that had consumed him. The vampire that turned him promised him wealth, power, and the revenge he most wanted. But Christian found no satisfaction in his final triumph, and he wanted nothing more than to disappear into the depths of darkness and forget everything he hadn’t done right– and everyone he couldn’t save.

 

But when he’s brought before his Master and sent on a mission to seduce Heather Macgregor, he finds himself captive to the untrained red-headed witch who wakes him to buried longings and something he never expected: hope. In her bed he finds passion without boundaries and in her heart, redemption. But Heather also unwittingly provides him with the key to his Master’s obsession, the Light Walker Loti Dupree.

Now a pawn in a dangerous game, Christian must make an impossible choice: save the one who saved his soul and condemn the World to darkness or save the world and forever lose the only love he’s ever known.

When Quinn and Riley set out on a family vacation with their parents, the

of reading. Years later, The Hunger Games trilogy became the spark
that rekindled her love of books. After devouring that series, she
quickly became captivated by dystopian novels.
After several years of reading them, she decided to take a stab at writing
one that combined her love for nature with her fear of human
destruction

XYZ : One Man, two kids, ten devices and an internet-sized generation gap by William Knight Genre: Humorous Fiction

From a former Guardian and BBC writer, and author of The
Donated,
comes a hilarious story of mid-life crisis, family, technology,
and coping with the modern workplace.
Jack Cooper is a depressed, analogue throwback; a cynical, alcoholic
Gen-Xer whose glory days are behind him. He’s unemployed, his
marriage has broken down, he’s addicted to internet hook-ups, and
is deeply ashamed of his son Geronimo, who lives life dressed as a bear.
When Jack’s daughter engineers a job for him at totally-lit tech firm
Sweet, he’s confronted by a Millennial and Zoomer culture he can’t
relate to. He loathes every detail – every IM, gif and emoji –
apart from Freya, twenty years his junior and addicted to
broadcasting her life on social media.
Can Jack evolve to fit in at Sweet, or will he remain a dinosaur stuck in
the 1980s? And will he halt his slide into loneliness and repair his
family relationships?
XYZ is for every Gen-Xer who ever struggled with a device, and for
everyone else who loves emojis … said no one ever.
Essential reading for anyone in the workplace over 40, and a
handbook for those cocky bastards who are not.’
Paula (Boomer, wannabe GenX)
William Knight’s writing credits include The Guardian, The Financial Times
and the BBC, among many others publications, where he has written
about the successes and failings of technology.
He currently lives in Wellington, NZ, where he works as an IT consultant
and writes blistering content for technology firms.
The Donated, (first published as Generation), is a thriller based on the
dangers of experimenting with viral DNA and ignoring science. It
features a techno-phobic journo.
XYZ is a mid-life car crash. Jack Cooper works for a super-cool tech firm
and can’t operate his own mobile phone. Besides, his life is falling
apart because his family is addicted to the internet.
Other novels, The Fractured and Foretold, may be available
“one day” he says.

And you thought the Wild West was dead…
DV Berkom is the USA Today bestselling author of two action-packed
thriller series featuring strong female leads (Leine Basso and Kate
Jones). Her love of creating resilient, kick-ass women characters
stems from a lifelong addiction to reading spy novels, mysteries, and
thrillers, and longing to find the female equivalent within those pages.
Raised in the Midwest, she earned a BA in political science and promptly
moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Several years and many
adventures later, she wrote her first novel and was hooked. The Kate
Jones adventure thriller, Bad Spirits, was first published in 2010 as
an online serial, and was immediately popular with Kindle and Nook
fans. Dead of Winter, Death Rites, and Touring for Death soon
followed before she began the far grittier Leine Basso thriller
series in early 2012 with Serial Date.
DV currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Mark, and
several imaginary characters who like to tell her what to do.

The McAllister Farm
The McAllister Series Book 2
Step back in time to learn the secret behind the bodies in Where the
Bodies Are in this disturbing look at the boy who will grow up to
create the killer.
1981
Meet David McAllister, the boy who will grow up to create the killer.
In 1981 there was a man who lived on a farm. William McAllister was a
private and reclusive man who, above all else, did not like to have
attention drawn on his family.
He wanted only to be left to mind his own business and family and for
the world to do the same. But that very reclusiveness fosters
contempt and suspicion in the people of the small farming community
his family has called home for generations.
William McAllister has a son, Jason McAllister. Jason is a troubled boy.
Growing up under his father’s strict rules and isolated from the
normal childhood relationships, he is left to explore his darker
inclinations. Seeing the darker side of Jason, William tries to rein
his son in by bringing him into the family business.
Just then a serial killer starts preying on local young women. The
McAllisters quickly find themselves drawn into the spotlight when the
town decides William McAllister is the killer. As the town’s search
for the killer focuses on the McAllister farm and the woods behind
it, the threat to the McAllister secret grows.
The McAllister family history is as dark as the secret hiding in the
woods. The attention is a threat to both William McAllister’s
profession and his family. He has no choice but to find the killer
himself. He might not like what he learns.

Dark Unicorn
Horn Sworn Book 1
by Taylor Haiden & Angela Kulig
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Victoria Aveyard, Dark Unicorn is the
first of the new and mysterious adult fantasy series Horn Sworn.
Princess Wrenyve knows her oath to return her Kingdom’s missing artifact,
the Heart of Spellshallow, means one of the King’s children will
die. Even if Wren is cunning, fast, and strong enough, there’s a
good chance it will still be her.
Without the Heart, magic will flee the land faster than the night flees the
day. Without the Heart, Spellshallow, and everything in it will cease
to exist. As her brother’s shameful thievery is uncovered, Wren
must swallow her pride and accept help from allies whom she knows she
can’t trust:
– Thackery is the ambitious son of the richest and most powerful
councilman—her very ex, scorned lover—and the wounds Wren caused
him are still raw.
– Calen isn’t a boy at all. Trapped in human form after a hideous
defeat, Calen may have lost his horn, but is still a unicorn—a
self-serving, treacherous scoundrel, as dangerous to any man who
crosses him as he is to the innocence of every fair maiden.
– Luckily for Wren, she was already doomed.
To find the Heart and restore the magic, to retrieve the lost horn, Wren
and her unfortunate travel companions must survive three separate
realms—each more deadly than the last. Unknown enemies and strange
magic hinder their way, and yet the most perilous thing is what lies
within their own hearts.

This time there’s more than just his horn on the line.
They escape the Collector’s clutches by fleeing to the beautiful Realm of
