ROUSSE Y EL ASESINO DEL TRIBAL (Spanish Edition)

by Eme A. Sánchez

Cada segundo la vida nos entrega a la muerte. Lo que respiramos, ese oxígeno vital, es el enemigo que carcome nuestros cuerpos día tras día, hasta la vejez. Celebramos un año más de vida cuando es uno menos por vivir ¿qué piensa la humanidad? O mejor, ¿por qué la humanidad no piensa?

Tú, que lees esto, sientes en este instante que a tu vida le falta algo, piensas, buscas, sueñas; pero no encuentras ¿qué buscas? La respuesta siempre es la misma: no lo sabes, pero lo necesitas y debes encontrarlo, y eso, aquello que quieres, está contenido en la palabra destino. Esa única palabra que encierra aquello que pondrá fin a tus dudas. Cada vez que el tiempo se cruza en tu camino te das cuenta que en realidad no buscas nada, el destino te conecta con lo que te deparó desde el primer suspiro. Ese es el problema, mi problema y el tuyo, ya que las decisiones que tomamos no nos pertenecen, están condicionadas a seguir cada movimiento como fichas en un juego de ajedrez.

La nada, es ahí donde todo comenzó. Como una lucha entre dos fuerzas. La destrucción y la creación, sin embargo, tal condición no podría ofrecer el carácter de realidad que alcanzan las emociones de un juego. Fichas, una creación ingeniosa y divertida, son estas quienes pasan por el tablero de la vida. Fichas que sufren, padecen, pierden, luchan, ganan, mientras quien las controla disfruta estas emociones sin ninguna consecuencia.

Nuestro nacimiento, ese es el momento en el que el juego inicia, somos peones en el ajedrez de la vida, cada movimiento deseando convertirnos en algo más: blanco y negro, bien y mal, creación y destrucción, el todo y la nada. No hay más opción que avanzar; solo la muerte determina el fin de todas las cosas.

¿Cómo ganar el juego? Es ahí donde la pregunta más relevante toca la mente de quien no desea ser controlado. La respuesta es simple; juega, gana, y lo más importante, jamás desfallezcas o perderás cada paso que diste para lograr tu objetivo. Estoy maldito, lo cual no implica una condena, quizá sea un privilegio.

Mi nombre es Jota y no seré el juguete de nadie, llámenle Dios o como quieran, el hecho es que no seré controlado. Mientras quede aliento en este cuerpo mortal buscaré romper el lazo que une a la muerte con el destino. Antes de que te adentres en esta historia quiero dejar claro que no trata de mí, esta es la historia de la mujer que me hará libre. Esta historia es sobre Rousse.

Everyone has heard the classic Christmas song written by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie in 1934. It clearly states Santa knows everything. So if we’ve been good we have nothing to worry about, right? Right. But what we haven’t. What if we even in the slightest way did something to upset Santa? Have you ever thought about that? I have. In fact, I have a story to tell you from many years ago, a time when I should have been good…

A RESTLESS SOUL: The Haunting of Sam Moore

by Mark P Steven

Harry Moore, a restless spirit, destined to carry with him always, the burden of his own guilt and grief for all eternity. Unable to rest in peace, his spirit aimlessly searches for that one link, that something or someone. Anything that would lift him out from the sad depths of his own despair and so, hopefully, in death, help put right the wrongs he made in life.
Also, there is Sarah, a young single mother, penniless and abandoned by her family and struggling to survive on her own. She is helpless and too young to cope alone, but still, she fights hard to care for her young son as best as she can.
Lastly, there is Samuel, Sarah’s baby, born with a rare eye condition that defies all medical science; he is gifted but different from others. A difference that would only mean one thing, a life of loneliness and a life ostracized and excluded by those that should have known better. Rejected for one reason only, he is not the same as them, and they are scared, and rightly so. He has the power to see, and enter, the world that nobody else should ever see, – until it is their time that is, – the spirit world, the world of the dead.
This is a story of sadness but also of happiness, a trilogy of sad lives, all haunted by the death of one young man, a soldier that failed to return home from battle. They are all divided in death, but also, united by love.

My Christmas Story

by Rayne Havok

*This is a short story*
Lydia is spending Christmas alone for the first time. At least her house is beautifully decorated.

“When he finally comes to, his bloodied and swollen eyes connect with mine. I’m sure a part of him is wondering, but the bigger and more deviant part of him doesn’t care that I’m on top of him, or why his c*ock is inside of me.”



The 3 Egos

by David Dunwoody

In a time of legend, three mortals made a deal with the Devil. Then they ran. Since then they have used magic and technology to hide from Hell’s agents. But nothing lasts forever.

Now two of them stand before the Devil and are presented with a new offer: locate the third fugitive or pay what they owe – with interest.

Joined by other lost souls, Chith and Talent cross dimensions and worlds in search of the fabled Third Ego, encountering resistance and deception at every turn. Everyone has a secret agenda. Everyone is lying. All have been made pawns in a game bigger than either Heaven or Hell – in a plot that may unravel the fabric of eternity.

Earth is doomed. Heaven will fall. Hell will burn. Time grinds to a standstill as the Three Egos meet in a bloody battle with everything at stake.

“Reads like a great pulp fiction as written by Dante Alighieri. Exploring the afterlife, and even other planets, in a series of brawls, shootouts, and backstabs, a colorful cast always keeps the reader entertained and invested in the fate of a universe predestined for destruction.”
-Patrick Rutigliano, author of The UNTIMELY DEATHS OF DARYL HANDY and WIND CHILL

“The 3 Egos blew me away. Dunwoody’s best and most imaginative tale yet. Completely sucked me in and swept me away. Filled with humor, wit and true horror. Think: a dark and hellish version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I can’t recommend it enough.”
– David Bernstein, author of WITCH ISLAND and THE UNHINGED

“Move over, Bible! The Revelation of Dunwoody is at hand. If you’re not reading this already, you are WRONG.”
-Thom Brannan, author of LORDS OF NIGHT

The Rose of Shanhasson: The Shanhasson Trilogy Book 1 (Blood and Shadows 2)

by Joely Sue Burkhart

“The Rose of Shanhasson is one of the best fantasy romances I’ve read in years!” ~ Larissa Ione, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Demonica series.

As Our Blessed Lady’s last daughter, Shannari must rule as High Queen or the Green Lands will fall into eternal darkness. Her destiny is to shine against the Shadow, protect the land and people with her magic, and keep the Blackest Heart of Darkness imprisoned. Her blood is the key, powered by the love in her heart. However, Shannari’s heart is broken, her magic is crippled, and the nobles must have forgotten the dire prophesies, because everyone wants her dead.

Only love can restore her magic, but her scars testify how love can be corrupted. So when a barbarian warlord conquers her army and professes a love like no other, Shannari’s first instinct is to kill the mighty Khul. Even worse, one of the Khul’s guards used to be an assassin-a very skilled assassin, if the darkness in the Blood’s eyes is any indication. The same darkness festers deep in her heart and draws her to the wickedly dangerous man as inexorably as his Khul’s unshakable honor. Her weakening heart is not only torn between love and duty, but also between two magnificent warriors.

Yet neither warrior will be able to help her when Shadow calls her name.

A Complete MFM+ Epic Fantasy
Book 1: Beginning of a menage
Book 2: Menage
Book 3: Full MFM+

Warning: two of the men die (one in book 2, one in book 3), though everyone is reunited at the end.
