The Cleansing (Earth Haven Book 1)

by Sam Kates

Apocalypse unleashed, the Cleansing begins. Relentless. Survival, uncertain.

Seven billion people inhabit this world, unaware our destruction is at hand. Death arrives unheraldedâ??swift and nearly certainâ??not from meteors or nuclear holocaust or global warming, but from a source no one even knows exists.

The architects of doom have moved among us, hidden in plain sight, waiting for the signal to trigger our extinction.

Blindsided, humanity falls. A handful of survivors, bewildered and grief-stricken, must face the new reality, and quickly. For while the Cleansing threatens our existence, it is only the beginning. . . .

“Sam Kates’ writing style is elegant and deft, and his way with words is superbly meticulous. He paints a picture for the reader of color and space and emotion, but uses a light brush so that no two readers will see quite the same thing: he doesn’t overburden the reader with description but leaves just enough, and just the right things, to the imagination. Kates has written some of the most powerful scenes anyone has put on paper, yet his writing is smooth, effortless, and supremely comfortable.” â??Adam Byrn Tritt, author of the award-winning sci-fi short story “Ezekiel’s Wheel”

When The Stone Shepherds Awaken: Book One in the Sabienn Feel Collection

by Mark Barkley

He was a freak, he thought, catching the lemon whiff of the suicide pill in his hand. Why had he been abandoned?

On a distant planet far off into the future, there is a human colony twice removed from Earth with a country preparing for war.

Sabienn Feel is a military cadet being fast-tracked for promotion as their enigmatic head of state, The Great Leader, readies his armies for battle. Sabienn is a lying, thieving cheat but he is earmarked for greatness, despite his erratic attempts to shoot himself in the foot.

His world comes crashing down when one day he grows wings.

With the shock of the hideous on him, he now finds people viewing his once perfect body as something freakish. But not only that; people are now actively trying to kill him.

He also finds out that not only him but thousands of men his age have grown wings around the world.

With his wings comes an intuitive ability to pick up an object and see a history of someone who held it. This ability has not gone unnoticed by higher powers within the realm.

But what is it that The Great Leader wants of him? What is it that he has to do to bring himself back into the love of this man he worships? Why does his survival lie with taking the life of a man whose guts he hates but he still questions it? And after all is done, will The Great Leader save him?

The Liberty Fleet Trilogy (War of Alien Aggression, box set two)

by A.D. Bloom

The Liberty Fleet Trilogy – After victory in the 2164-2165 War, Humanity expands into the territory of an Imperium that has sworn to destroy them. The first shots of the new war echo through the surrounding systems as Humanity’s neighboring species must choose sides and fight with or against the local cluster’s newest upstart rebels.
Ram Devlin of the Staas Company Privateers ventures to Shedir-4 with the attack carrier Hardway and a new UN battleship. Pursued by a devastating Imperium warship, they seek allies and technology. Staas Company and the UN will stop at nothing to acquire what Earth needs to protect itself, but their gunboat diplomacy could cripple Humanity’s expansion by marking us as the galaxy’s most dangerous savages. Ram Devlin can’t allow that to happen, but before he can take control and bend the arc of history with his own hands, he’ll have to defeat an Imperium warship that possesses a devastating weapon and displays no vulnerability.
Captain Garlan Foet signs on with Ram Devlin’s Privateers and travels to the home of the insect Shediri to reinforce the UN’s Task Force Liberty against an impeding attack on Humanity’s only allies. There are secret reasons Garlan was chosen for this mission, but a captain’s first duty is to his crew. There’s no room for anything else once the battle begins.
As they and the Shediri prepare to meet a superior battlegroup in a fight they’re expected to lose, Ram Devlin of the carrier Hardway and Captain Chun Ye Men of the battleship Guerrero must come to grips with the fact that the stated purpose of their task force was a lie all along. The only option now is to find a way to make the lies they’ve been sold into the truth
Devlin’s Privateers and the battleship UNS Guerrero enlist the aid of the Shediri to breach space and transit to the home system of their newest enemy, the Ekkai. If Commodore Ram Devlin wants to prevent the freshly completed Privateer and UN fleet from annihilating all life on the enemy homeworld, then there’s no option for him but to advance ahead of the Earth invasion forces to engage the sprawling and stealthy Ekkai home fleet in battle and beat them into surrender with Task Force Liberty.

Trying to Survive (The Kiser Series Book 1)

by Hannah Davenport

Carlana, or Lana, as her friends and family call her, found herself pregnant and married at the age of seventeen, but that was okay, because she and Graysen always planned to marry after high school. Born with a genetic lung disease, Lana considers herself lucky to have a son. Sixteen years later, she loses the love of her life in a tragic car accident. Now she is faced with raising her son by herself.

Two years have passed, and the days are getting a little easier without Graysen here with her, however she’s still not living, she’s just surviving. Her parents surprise her with a vacation for Christmas, wanting her to start living again. While on her trip, Lana finds a man badly beaten, unconscious, and without any ID. She spends the last three days of her vacation taking care of him, unable to leave, and not knowing who to call. When he finally does gain consciousness, he gives her the number for his best friend before blacking out once again. When his friend arrives, Lana has to leave immediately for fear of missing her flight home.

Colin was born to a very wealthy family, but raised by a nanny. Her son, Matt, is his best friend and keeps him grounded, sometimes. All women are the same, they only want fame, power, and money. He’s an asshole, Matt tells him so all the time, and he knows it, too. While leaving a bar one evening, he is dragged down an alley, robbed, and left to die after taking a beating. Waking up in a strange hotel room, he couldn’t figure out where he was or what had happened. All he knew was an angel was looking down at him, asking if he was okay. After Matt shows up, and his memories came flooding back to him, he knows it’s only a matter of time before the mystery woman sends a blackmail letter. Who knows what kind of pictures she took while he lay unconscious, and the media would pay a lot of money for them. When weeks pass, and he doesn’t hear anything—no call, no blackmail letter— he couldn’t stop thinking about the mystery woman. Nobody he knew would take care of a total stranger, without wanting something in return.
