IMMACULAtE (INFECtIOUS Book 2)

by Elizabeth Forkey

“I see three things. First, all the masked faces that have turned to focus on me. Second, Tim is backing slowly away from meâ??abandoning me. Desperation pounds in my ears. Then, I see Rosa’s small form laying still–too still–on the ground behind the spandex-suited men. A sob tears from my throat. If she is dead, I’m going to kill them. Every last one of them.”

On the run, Ivy faces humanity’s dark side. Her bubble wasn’t just popped, it was doused with gasoline and burned to the ground. Aunty is gone; and, though Ivy’s friends are still with her, she’s never been more on her own. Pravda thinks Ivy’s blood can heal the world. Can Ivy count on anyone to stay the same, or will Pravda’s relentless misconceptions strip away everything she has always believed?



Healing Ruby: A Novel (Volume 1)

by Jennifer H. Westall

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen…”

Ruby Graves, a young girl in Depression-era Alabama, faces the hardships of poverty and loss with as much faith as she can muster. At only the age of thirteen, she’s already lost a younger brother to illness, and now faces losing both her father and the boy who’s stealing her heart to illnesses as well. Armed with her beloved Scriptures, she prays daily for their healing, only to have her tender faith shattered by her father’s death.

Through her pain, she’s able to connect with her long-lost Uncle Asa, whose mere presence at his brother’s funeral brings murmurs of a scandalous past involving her parents and a prominent local pastor, Irwin Cass. When Ruby discovers that one of Asa’s many secrets is an ability to heal, and that she may be next in line for the “gift,” she vows to find the faith that has eluded her so far, a faith that could mean never losing loved ones again.

But faith and doubt can’t reside in the same heart, not according to her father, and doubt is Ruby’s constant companion. As she struggles to find the true meaning of faith, she’s opposed at every turn by the pastor who would see her family destroyed and a community that can’t see deeper than the color of one’s skin. Through her search for a faith that could move mountains and a true understanding of her gift, can Ruby trust in a God that may require the ultimate sacrifice?



Virtually Eliminated (The Ethan Hamilton Cyberthrillers Book 1)

by Jeff Gerke

He had a theory that the “accidental” electrocutions killing people online weren’t accidents at allâ?¦

but the work of a high tech serial killer.

He called the FBI with his theory, but they blew him off.

Until someone they cared about was “accidentally” electrocuted.

Now the government wants Ethan Hamiltonâ??a regular family guy and virtual reality programmer struggling with his beliefâ??to go after a murderer who kills on principle.

But Ethan’s addiction to online gaming threatens to destroy his family and his faith long before he can track down the assassin.

Virtually Eliminated is a near-future technothriller in the tradition of In the Line of Fire and Snowcrash. A maniac bent on killing in the name of patriotism, a civilian expert with the only chance of stopping him, and the mind-stretching cat and mouse chase that takes them to the depths of the sea, to the craters of the moon, and to the very edge of the online universe.

Virtually Eliminated is book 1 in the Ethan Hamilton series of near future cyberthrillers.

Excerpt from Virtually Eliminated

Once he decided to kill himself, the rest was easy.

He took a last look at the candle burning on the bedside table, then willed the interface open.

The world he saw through the goggles was dark, as it always was at the beginning. But with a nudge of thought, a portal of light opened and he flew through, leaving his body far behind.

Back there, his name was Louis Parks. Here, he was Sentinel.

In a few moments, he would be neither.

This local net no longer satisfied him. He knew every node, every subdirectoryâ??even every userâ??all too well.

He hurried to the GlobeNet interface. There was the usual long queue. Sentinel wrinkled his forehead, and a collection of small three-dimensional objects appeared in the “air” before him. A computer-generated hand reached out from his invisible body to grasp something out of his inventory. It looked like a bullhorn. He activated it.

Sheep, he thought, moving through the now-unpopulated net. He closed his bullhorn subroutine and sped invisibly through the interface.

He had existed as Sentinel for two years, now: watching, listening, piecing things together. The inescapable conclusion grieved him, turned to stone what was left of his heart. It became clear that the time for sentinelsâ??always so passive, quiet, and immobileâ??was past.

The turning point had been Senator Griffith’s rebuttal. The lesser officials to whom Sentinel had divulged his findings had turned him away, but that had neither surprised nor discouraged him. But if a full Senator would turn a blind eye to the indisputable facts, however, America was in worse trouble than Sentinel had first imagined.

That was when Sentinel had left the beaten path. If the United States government was not going to combat America’s invaders, then he was going to have to defend her himself.

Sentinel breathed more easily once inside GlobeNet proper. He lived for the freedoms offered here. Freedom of expression, of presence, of information. Freedom from all restraint too: physical, monetary, legal, racial.

Moral.
