An Airship Named Desire

by Katherine McIntyre

Airships, sky-pirates, smugglers and soldiers… An Airship Named Desire is an action-filled steampunk adventure.

Ever since their last botched smuggling job, First Mate Bea and the crew of her airship can barely afford fuel, let alone a barrel of grog. So, when a gentleman from Old Germany offers them a fortune to steal a locked box from a British merchant airship, they jump at the opportunity. Somehow, though, their employer forgot to mention the box’s military escort, and the Morlock mercenaries who would kill to get their hands on it. Oh, and that if made public, the contents could engulf Europe in another devastating war.

Stealing the box was the easy part. Now, with a target on their back, and some of the toughest characters in the sky after them, they have to find a way to survive. If the crew of the Desire don’t polish their pistols and prepare for a hell of a fight, they’ll end up worse than grounded. After all, everyone from the Brits to the Morlocks will kill for the contents of that box, and no one survives an airship crash.



Skin (The Ark Trilogy Book 1)

by Jesse Daro

Unbeknownst to most of human kind, Chimera Enterprises has resurrected a shapeshifting alien race that sank with the lost continent of Lemuria eons ago: the werekin, born with both a human and an animal skin, able to shift between the two at will. Seventeen-year-old Seth Michael Sullivan, a werejaguar, has grown up in the Underground, hiding from the hunters that capture and enslave werekin for Chimera Enterprises. After witnessing the murder of his guardian Naomi, Seth arrives in Fairfax, Indiana, on a snowy New Year’s Eve, a rare breed on the run. As he reconnects with the mother and sister who know nothing of his true identity, Seth discovers he is a key piece in Chimera’s plot to conquer humankind by securing the power of the werekin Totems – and uncovers a secret in his own past that could decide the fate of his kindred.

Top-secret scientific experiments, ancient alien technology, a powerful shadow organization inside the United States military – Seth soon finds himself at the center of a brewing interspecies war. Can he trust his own flesh and blood? Will he choose to stand with humankind or with his werekin kindred – especially when the best part of being human may be Marshall Townsend, the boy next door?

The Lingo Of Ares

by Julian Massaglia

2055,

The American General, Dante Corvigni, has been sent to Italy with one of the last standing human armies from the West to crush an invading force and win â??The War for Democracy’. After Dante completes his orders, something mysterious happens that changes his perspective on the entire universe and his place within it, that causes him to renounce his former loyalties to the United Nations and go rogue. By doing so, he not only gains the ire of his former country (which is now run by the Occuparty), he also gains the attention of a ruthless and dangerous shadow order of Illuminati demons that will stop at nothing through spiritual warfare, to wipe out Dante and his legacy from existence. Provocative and absurd, aggressive and unforgiving, cerebral and violent, this is a tale not for the faint of heart – or mind, this is a modern epic on the scale of the classics of one man versus the entire planet. A tale about a man who will carve out a bloodbath in his wake as he presses on relentlessly, to find meaning, the truth, and honor, in a world that seems so devoid of it at times.

There is no space for a large human population, there is hardly any land and the extreme heat of the sun makes life almost uninhabitable. In order to control population, the state, which is all that is left of the world, submits school leavers to a series of stringent tests. If you pass, you live. If you fail, you are exterminated. April, through no fault of her own finds herself on the wrong side of the law. She eventually turns to Allen, her forbidden boyfriend, for help. But what can he possibly do when survival of the fittest has become a rule of being?



Jesus Was a Time Traveler (WATT Book 1)

by D.J. Gelner

Time travel. Every sober scientist thinks it’s utterly impossible.

Of course, Phineas Templeton is no sober scientist in any sense of the word. A quirky English chap with a taste for fine scotch, Dr. Templeton builds a time machine at the behest of his mysterious Benefactor. His mission? To meet Jesus Christ Himself, and garner all of the fame, recognition, and accolades that writing an epic time travelogue would bring.

Unfortunately for Finny, Jesus is actually a fellow time traveler, a hippie named Trent from Colorado. While He explains that the past is fixed and immutable (“What happened, like, HAPPENED, manâ?¦”), Dr. Templeton realizes that he’s made a horrible oversight in his calculations, and can’t return to his own time period.

The only way home is to follow a list of very specific instructions his Benefactor has hidden on the time machine, which sends him on a madcap, at times hilarious voyage from watching his hero, Sir Isaac Newton, be berated by a high school physics teacher, to hunting dinosaurs, to rescuing two colorful American soldiers and fighting Nazis hellbent on his destruction.

All the while, Phineas is left to question his Benefactor’s true intentions. Just who is the shadowy person pulling the strings of a conspiracy thousands of years in the making? And why is Finny so key to their machinations?

A novel that’s been called “equal parts â??The Da Vinci Code’ and â??Back to the Future,'” “Jesus Was a Time Traveler” is a book that will please fans of Dan Brown and Douglas Adams alike with quirky humor, thought-provoking puzzles, cryptic clues, and a finicky universe that would like nothing more than to keep things as they are.
