Carson’s Night (The Stonebrood Saga)

by Tracy Cooper-Posey

It’s August 1977 in New York city and the stunning new Star Wars movie is smashing all box office records.

The weird sculptor Moss Alex Meinhardt lies dead at the foot of an ugly gargoyle he’s half-completed. Natalia Grey’s demon hunter father is also dead and his new partner, the astonishingly sexy Carson Connors, can’t remember how it happened. Carson isn’t sure what role he has played in Natalia’s father’s death, but after one look at Natalia, he does know that guilty or not, he’s doomed.

Vampire lovers, Nick and Damian, have been tracking the Stonebrood clan for nearly a century. When Damian is slashed by one of the clan and barely survives, Nick encourages Tally to take up her father’s sword and her heritage as a demon hunter.

Tally learns that the gargoyles Meinhardt carved have been brought to a life they should not have without the help of dark forces she and Carson must defeat — once the gargoyles have risen. But the night is hours away yet, giving time for Tally and Carson to explore their explosive feelings for each other.

What happened to Carson during the night Tally’s father died and what will happen tonight?

Centaurs (Parallel Worlds)

by Aaron Pery

Book one in the series of parallel worlds adventures, follows the story of Nicole and Martin Sherman’s strangely acquired ability to travel at will from dimension to dimension in geographically similar worlds.
Their first stop, though unintentional, is the ancient island of Crete, in the Aegean Sea between Greece and Turkey where they find themselves in the bodies of two young centaurs.
They befriend the other centaurs on the island, all of whom are not native to it since they were brought over under false promises in order to serve their new masters’ hidden agenda of rebuilding their population by mating with the centaurs.
Nicole and Martin quickly uncover the Gogian’s secret plans and help the enraged centaurs get rid of their opressors and become a nation under their own rule.

Excerpt:
….Martin began to shake and shudder internally once the realization of what he was seeing penetrated his mind and all his senses seemed to suddenly shut down. Then, with utter shock, he recognized another fact that that was just as bizarre as seeing himself and Nicole dead.
“How is it possible that I can see, hear, and smell everything around me when I’m supposed to be dead?” He cried out aloud.
“Because maybe what we had always believed was nonsense about life after death was wrong because it looks like we are both physically dead and we’ve become a pair of souls floating above their dead bodies–awaiting the judgment of where we go next, up or down.”
“That’s bull and you know it.” Martin burst out. “Can you see me?”
“Yes, I think I do. It’s kind of eerie but what I see of you is a pulsating globe-like object floating in mid-air.” ….

EXCERPT

Cyrus looked at her while his head spun. She was small and probably younger than he. Her hair was long and thick and the color of moonlight, almost glowing in the night air. If it weren’t for the fact that it was covering her nudity, Cyrus might have died at that very moment.

“Iâ?¦ Butâ?¦ youâ?¦”

He tried to speak and it was admittedly the most he had ever said to a woman not in his immediate family.

“My name is Magdeline. I was cursed by an old witch. I was trapped and sold to that market. Not one had a Soulyte even similar to mine so I was never released. When I saw youâ?¦ Well, that changed everything! I had the chance to be free again and find that old hag. But when that bird attacked meâ?¦ I decided to just stay with you. Despite your naivety and stupidity, you’re a pretty nice guy.”

“You’re aâ?¦ a womanâ?¦”

It was then that Cyrus finally fainted.

Magdeline rolled her amethyst eyes and smiled.

“You know,” she whispered. “When the Hero kisses the damsel, it’s supposed to be happily ever after.”

The Dragons of Sara Sara

by Robert Chalmers

The Dragons of Sara Sara is a tale of an epic struggle familiar to us all. Of swords and warrior maidens, of farm boys and dragons. For even today, if you look closely at mountains you can see them moving ever so slowly, as the dragons that lie hidden in their craggy outlines slowly breath. Dragons have not disappeared forever, they are just waiting, perhaps for a story such as this.

For this is a story of the endless struggle between Darkness and Light, and set in a time that could be far in the future of the world. It’s not a scientific future, but rather a future that has seen human beings returned to living relatively simple lives again. Trading in hand made and grown goods, their weapons when needed are swords and spears. A great deal of time has passed since an age when the forces of Light and Dark clashed, almost destroying the world, and those sworn to uphold the Light – for it was they who won at great cost – have descendants now scattered far and wide, and the great battles have passed into legend and myth. But beneath a smoking mountain lies the ever moving prison of the Dark Lord, and his rage at his imprisonment is fuelling his lust for freedom. This has awoken the spirits of the descendants of the forces of the Light, and one of those is the rightful leader of the Dragon Armies. The Dragon Armies that will carry the battle to Sara Sara, the smoking mountain deep in the Blasted Landsâ?¦

Antonin and Catharina, a farm boy and a warrior maiden have been friends since they were born in the same village, far out on the Star Field Plain. A tiny village in a remote landscape, where only the occasional Trader or Story Teller comes by. Life is peaceful and happy until the day that Sara Sara begins to rumbleâ?¦
