Breathe

by Tracey E. Chambers

When Bethany starts hearing disembodied voices and seeing things that disappear before her eyes, she’s afraid her tenuous grip on reality is slipping. Being a teenager is hard enough, but if you are freak and an outcast it feels impossible. Bethany dreams of escaping Fort Grange, but she has other secrets to hideâ?¦

“What do you think you are doing in that car you little whore?” he yelled from across the yard.

Bethany froze in her seat as he approached the car. Then, the expression on her face instantly became blank. She unlocked the car door and started to walk across the yard completely unfazed as he spewed curse words at her… My hands gripped the steering wheel tightly as I pulled away from her house. Now, I knew who was hurting Bethany

Bethany’s only choice to cope with her hellish home life is to push the world away, even the hot new guy in town that won’t seem to take a hintâ?¦

“Is this seat taken?”

I flashed my best grin. She wasn’t impressed.

“Look Logan, there are ten other tables you can sit at and I have a ton of make-up work to do,” she huffed.

Dismissing me, she looked back down at her book. I stood there for a good ten seconds, but she refused to acknowledge me. I was not going walk away from her so I cleared my throat and tried again,

“Bethany?”

She signed theatrically and tore her gaze away from her book to glare at me.

“If I promise to miss you, will you go away?”

Logan is irresistibly drawn to her and won’t take no for an answer. Despite all her efforts to keep him outside her carefully constructed walls, Logan forces his way into her insane world. He’s determined to heal her fragile heart…

He moved his hand up from my chin to cradle my face as he pulled me half onto his chest with his other arm. He anchored me to him tightly and tilted my face still closer to his. He gave me one more second to pull away before he closed the last inch between us. My first kiss was exquisitely gentle and sweet. Logan’s lips lingered on mine for several seconds before he drew just far enough away from me to put a couple of inches between us. I could feel his breath on my face. My eyes had adjusted to the darkness enough to make out his features. His eyes were locked onto mine, silently asking for permission to kiss me again.

She can never let him know just how bad it is at home. With Logan’s support Bethany can begin to heal but Logan has his own secrets to hide. Can they learn to trust each other enough to take a chance on love? Or will their secrets destroy them both?

The Almagest

by Dina Gallyamov

The fist hit the priest’s midsection hard, knocking the wind out of him. His knees buckled and he crumpled to the floor just as the man’s knee smashed into his face. The old priest’s glasses flew across the room and skittered under a table. The priest’s nose and mouth exploded blood. The man pinned the priest to the floor and rained down blows until the priest’s face was a bloody pulp.

“Now, where’s my spell book?” the scar-faced man taunted.

Gabriel Prince, a graduate student who shares a name with the young Bosnian who launched World War I, finds himself on the precipice of a war of his own.

When the grandfather he never met dies, Gabriel is bequeathed the old man’s only treasure: a secret map to the Gates of Hell. Gabriel quickly discovers that the servants of Hell seek that map – and him, too. With a stolen key to unlock the gate, dark shadows chase Gabriel around the world to steal his map and find the gate. Rescued from a vicious, self-mutilating demon-possessed killer by a secret society of Christians, Muslims, and Jews, including a mysterious Tatar beauty, Gabriel must face his fears and discover his faith if he’s to join them.

Can the unfaithful Gabriel protect our world from a demonic invasion?

The Almagest is a fast-moving, richly researched thriller like The Da Vinci Code reimagined in the spirit of C.S. Lewis. The author, Dina Gallyamov, hails from Tatarstan and is now a doctoral candidate in America.

CRITICAL PRAISE FOR THE ALMAGEST:

“Powerful thriller steeped in richly researched historical and religious detail.”

“A fast-moving thrill ride that raises important questions about faith and purpose.”
