The Price of Desire: Book One of The House of Light and Shadow

by P.J. Fox

Kisten Mara Sant is a man with a problem. He’s disgraced his conservative, politically ambitious family, torpedoed a promising naval career, and only barely escaped being put to death for treason after brawling with his uncle in the middle of the senate floor. His uncle, who happens to be the senate minority leader and heir to the throne of the empire. After Kisten’s father, who is both the chancellor of the empire and his cousin’s bitter political rival, pulled every string at his disposal, Kisten’s sentence was commuted to exile: as governor of a disease-ridden mining outpost teetering on the edge of rebellion where running water is an almost unheard-of luxury and the native population is terrified of toilets.

He decides to have one last hurrah before meeting his certain doom but, instead of the fun he’d hoped for, he winds up with a hangover and an unwanted accomplice: a terrified urchin of a girl who hates him, and does her best to sabotage him at every turn.

And that’s when things really get bad.

Hardwired, Episode 1

by Walter Jon Williams

Episode One of the classic novel! Earth lies prostrate beneath the lash of the Orbital powers, and Earth’s Balkanized nations have no choice but to let the Orbitals plunder their remaining wealth. Below the zone of Orbital control, buttonheads, panzerjocks, dirtgirls, and hustlers scramble for their ticket out of the gravity well.

But now, if the criminal underworld and the guerilla underground can join forces, there is a chance to shift the balance of powerâ?? in a war fought on the ground by hardwired commandos, in the air by high-flying deltajocks, and by genius hackers in the neural interface.

As Roger Zelazny said, “Hardwired” is a tough, sleek juggernaut of a story, punctuated by strobe light movements, coursing to the wail of jets and the twang of steel guitarsâ?? glittering, nasty, and nobleâ?? and told in a style perfectly suiting its content. It has all of my favorite thingsâ?? blood, love, fire, hate and a high ideal or two. I wish I’d written this one.”

by Lisa Shea

Nicole Bessam had finally found him. After long, fruitless years of searching, after countless missteps and mistakes, she had at last reunited with the man she had pledged her heart to. He was right there in front of her.

But he didn’t remember her face.

Commander Jon Paxton was transfixed by the woman before him. He’d had lovers in the past, certainly – women who eased his loneliness. But none had ever called to him the way Nicole did. None had ever fit into his life as neatly as a key fits into its lock. And there seemed to be so much more beneath the surface – but he just couldn’t reach it.

Nicole had to move as carefully as a cat negotiating a rocky ledge high above a desolate abyss. One reckless step, one shift in the wrong direction, and the love they had shared could be forever lost.

Miriya: A Double Helix Novella

by Jade Kerrion

***For a limited time, you can get the six-time award winning novel, Perfection Unleashed (Double Helix #1) for free – click here to find out more > http://www.doublehelixbooks.com (just copy and paste into your browser)***

Destinies collide…

Thirty years into the First Genetic Revolution, society’s tolerance for human derivatives is wearing thin. Clones and in vitros are regarded with suspicion, and mutants with resentment. Yet in spite of the hostile environment, some alpha telepathsâ??like Miriya Templetonâ??have thrived.

Her luck is running out.

Destiny has set her life on a collision course with Danyael Sabre, the alpha empath who can kill with a touch. Whether he becomes friend or foe, whether he and she live or die, will depend on the choices she makes. On her decisions hang the outcomes of the Second Genetic Revolution. Miriya, however, does not believe in destiny, nor want any part of the revolution. It is up to the enforcer, Jake Hansen, to convince her otherwise, and he is running out of time.

Miriya is a “prequel” novella to the Double Helix series.

Interview with the Author

Q – So, what makes the Double Helix series special?

A – The Double Helix is a series premised upon the creation of the “perfect” human being, Galahad, but it is ultimately about his less-than-perfect physical template, Danyael Sabre, and the power, strength, and beauty found in humanity’s imperfections. Ultimately, what makes the Double Helix series special are its characters. You will fall in love with them.

The series offers readers a great mix of science fiction, fantasy, and action-adventure genres. It is also grounded in science. Fiction is a great deal closer to reality than most people realize, and the societal pressures and dilemmas faced by Danyael and Galahad are imminent.

The fast-paced action will have you turning pages, while the plot layers on complexity after complexity, offering you an unlikely romance you will root for and a happy ending you can believe in.

Q – What order should I read the books in?

A – The four books of the Double Helix series should be read in order for maximum enjoyment and a deep down, gut-felt happy ending. The novellas and the YA novels are standalone, but fit into the timeline as follows:

– Miriya (Novella)

– Perfection Unleashed (Double Helix #1)

– Perfect Betrayal (Double Helix #2)

– Zara (Novella – coming soon)

– Perfect Weapon (Double Helix #3)

– When the Silence Ends (YA)

– Perfection Challenged (Double Helix #4)

Q – So, why should readers give these books a try?

A – Because the Double Helix series is the perfect mixture of non-stop action, gripping plot, thought-provoking philosophy, and beautiful visuals that fans of science fiction, fantasy, and superhero novels will love. The five novels in the series have won a total of eight literary awards in science fiction, including Gold Medal, 2013 Readers Favorites.

Robin Lynn, an Amazon reviewer, describes it as “Truly enjoyable and delectable in its subtlety. The action is jackhammer fierce while the mental machinations slowly weave their way through your psyche. Potent and spellbinding. Wow.”

Q – Can readers get the whole series in one go?

A – The Double Helix Collection offers five novels, two bonus features, and saves you money! Check out my author page here at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/author/jadekerrion (just cut and paste into the browser field) for more details, and a full list of my available titles.

And thanks for reading!

by Chrissy Peebles

These stories have been previously published. One story is a novella and one is a full length book. All your questions won’t be answered in book 1.

We need to fight for the future we want, not the one that’s been delivered to us. Taking back our world is a fight we’ll never give up on.

When fate and destiny collide, one must fight the darkness or be swallowed up.

In this anthology, each hero or heroine has a dark fate… a marked destiny. Will these inspirational characters survive the cards of fate they have been dealt?

Story 1 – APOCALYPSE – UNDERWATER CITY

by Chrissy Peebles

***This is a 15,000 word novella***

This series does have dark moments and is intended for mature audiences only.

BOOK TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CF9UkY0qiSo

I’m a survivor, living in a post-apocalyptic world. I live deep in the ocean and that’s how we all survived the world’s greatest catastrophe known to man. I’d often dreamt of a normal life, but sadly, that wasn’t what fate had in store for me.

Where do I even begin? Let’s start from the beginning, shall we?

My name is Sky Hammons, and this is my story. It’s actually quite like my name, because it is a tale of hope, faith, and new beginningsâ??like a bright, blue summer sky. Or at least that was what I’d wished for, back when I was naïve and clueless enough to believe it. I really wish my journey could be summed up like that, and at first, it seemed like that might be the case. But then that bright sky darkened, and things fell apart. As if Chicken Little’s fears were coming true, my blue sky shattered. They say “The truth will set you free,” but I can’t say I believe thatâ??at least not anymore. In my case, the bitter truth shook me to my very core. I never would have imagined that life could be so cruel or that people could be so deranged outside of an Alfred Hitchcock script or some awful horror movie, but I learned one thing: Never, ever believe what you’re told.

I’d been hand-fed lies since birth from my so-called government, and like a mindless drone, I’d happily believed every fraudulent word of the garbage they spewed. Maybe I just wanted that warm, fuzzy feeling; their lies comforted me and allowed me to sleep better at night. After all, who doesn’t want peace and hope and goodwill and all those other things splattered in snowy glitter all over the front of Christmas cards?

When I got a little older and started to take a good, close look at the world around me, I began to challenge the world I lived in. I began to realize it wasn’t all marshmallows and unicorns and Norman Rockwell paintings, and I started to ask questions. I’d always hoped for a bright future, but little did I know that absolute terror was lurking just around the corner. As I dug into the unknown, I was confronted by my worst nightmare.

My name is Sky, and this is my story.

Story 2 – THE ZOMBIE CHRONICLES by Chrissy Peebles

The Zombie Chronicles Book Trailer: http://youtu.be/ociUHiL1g70

*This is a young adult book series. Each chronicle will feature Dean’s struggles as he tries to survive in this new world. And thus the name, The Zombie Chronicles. I hope you enjoy this series, and thank you for giving book one a chance.*

But it can’t be tested until Val turns into a zombie: something authorities won’t allow. Her execution is scheduled to happen before transformation is complete, giving Dean only hours to break her out.

When their helicopter crashes straight into the heart of Zombie Land, his rescue mission becomes a fight for survivalâ?¦and giving up on Val is NOT an option.



Shadow’s Talent

by Tommy Muncie

17 year old Shadow Hatcher has dreams of getting into a prestigious spaceflight academy, going to live in The Colony and leaving his family’s farm in Sussex behind him, but the odds are stacked against him: the people who get selected for Christensen’s Flight Academy usually have Seeker status and a mind power known as Talent. Shadow has neither, but is about to start a chain of events that will lead him to people who might help him achieve his dreams. During a sleepless night spent climbing trees by moonlight, he witnesses a murder in the back lanes of his family’s farm, committed by a gangland drug dealer named Matt Carson, who peddles a highly contraband substance known as Dream Morphine and would happily see Shadow dead before he could make a witness testimony.

While waiting for the trial and watching his back, Shadow is reunited with a Dr Kit Calloway, who saved his life the previous year, partly thanks to possessing Talent and being liberal with the rules on its usage. When Kit shows an interest in helping Shadow achieve his dreams, Shadow begins to form ideas about how he might illegally acquire the same power and secrets Kit has to help him on his way to career success.

Kit is a rule breaker, and perhaps isn’t so much better than the criminals who Shadow’s witness testimony is about to put away. He leads Shadow deeper into a world of cover-ups and favours from people it is unwise to accept favours from, because Shadow has a past of his own to cover up for. His erratic, volatile friendship with the schizophrenic brother of the murderer he just helped imprison for life is only the start of it. The love of Shadow’s life, Ebony, is becoming increasingly afraid of what Shadow is getting into and will only let him take it so far before she refuses to be part of it, and Shadow’s father has stories he refuses to tell about why he doesn’t like the Talented, and how Shadow’s ancestry might not be all it appears to be. Shadow’s increasing success will put him in danger he could never have known about, and he may come close to paying the ultimate price for achieving his dreams.
