Thrust into a world of men, can a timid girl find bravery as the first female Death?

Thirteen-year-old Suzie Sarnio always believed the Grim Reaper was a fairy tale image of a skeleton with a scythe. Now, forced to enter the College of Deaths, she finds herself training to bring souls from the Living World to the Hereafter.

Attacked by both classmates and strangers, Suzie is alone in a world where even her teachers want her to fail.

Scythes hungry for souls, Deaths who enslave a race of mysterious magicians, and echoes of an ancient war with Dragons.

On a mission to break up an underground gambling ring, Ares gets caught in a bloody and deadly shootout. When he escapes, he doesn’t expect to have a passenger on the back of his ride… 

Desperate to finally escape the hell she has been living in, Brooke Danyers was supposed to put the gun to the sexy, tough biker’s stomach and pull the trigger. Instead, she froze… and then left with him. 

There’s revenge to be had, but when Ares discovers who is behind it all – and that his fate with Back Down Devil is on the line – will his steamy romance with beautiful Brooke finally destroy his ties to the club forever?

Bargain Book: Dead New World by Ryan Hill

cover10001
Zombies aren’t mindless anymore.

Before the world fell into chaos, zombies existed only in the imagination. Now, there’re more dead walking the earth than living. Zombies move about freely, while humans are forced behind concrete barricades to stay alive.

A man known only as the Reverend has become a threat to the rebuilding United States. The leader of a powerful cult, the Reverend somehow controls the zombies, bending them to his will. He believes zombies are God’s latest creation, making humanity obsolete, and he wants to give every man, woman, and child the chance to become one. With the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, his army composed of both humans and zombies, he may well get his wish.

Best friends Holt and Ambrose went up against the Reverend once. Holt lost a foot and a zombie bit Ambrose… though he didn’t completely turn. He survived the virus, only to become a human-zombie hybrid, reviled by the living and unwelcome among the dead. When the Reverend kidnaps the woman Holt loves, the race is on to save her from a fate worse than death.

Holt and Ambrose must sacrifice everything to take down the Reverend and survive in this dead new world. But will they lose their souls in the process?

Seth Rogan was a bad spy. That’s because he wasn’t a spy at all. Just a guy trying to do the right thing.

Bargain Book: Cthulhu Lives! by Tim Dedopulos

cthulhulives-600x960This book is bargain priced from 12/17/2014 until 12/23/2014

“That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die.”

At the time of his death in 1937, American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft was virtually unknown. The power of his stories was too great to contain, however. As the decades slipped by, his dark visions laid down roots in the collective imagination of mankind, and they grew strong. Now Cthulhu is a name known to many and, deep under the seas, Lovecraft’s greatest creation becomes restless…

This volume brings together seventeen masterful tales of cosmic horror inspired by Lovecraft’s work. In his fiction, humanity is a tiny, accidental drop of light and life in the endless darkness of an uncaring universe a darkness populated by vast, utterly alien horrors. Our continued survival relies upon our utter obscurity, something that every fresh scientific wonder threatens to shatter.

The dazzling stories in Cthulhu Lives! show the disastrous folly of our arrogance. We think ourselves the first masters of Earth, and the greatest, and we are very badly mistaken on both counts. Inside these covers, you’ll find a lovingly-curated collection of terrors and nightmares, of catastrophic encounters to wither the body and blight the soul. We humans are inquisitive beings, and there are far worse rewards for curiosity than mere death.

The truth is indeed out there — and it hungers.

Pompeii was a lively resort flourishing in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius at the height of the Roman Empire. When Vesuvius erupted in an explosion of flame and ash, the entire town would be destroyed.

A priestess and a whore seek redemption and resurrection as the town is buried.

Bargain Book: The Gray Hound by Charles Mahoney

gray-houndThis book is bargain priced from 12/15/2014 until 12/17/2014

The Crime & Reports section of The Arizona Standard newspaper is frustratingly normal – and a little “too soft” for one dogged investigative reporter. With the population in Phoenix pushing one million and the crime rate in steep decline, the time feels right to take a stance on corruption; hard evidence in hand or not. The year is 1976 and the celebration of the Bicentennial is in full swing. All crime is regulated on the western front. That is, until the day arrives for the much anticipated Bicentennial Edition of The Standard, the last issue before a major change is to take place. For what he believes to be his “last hurrah,” Lech Paulowski takes over the front page in order to publish names and faces and crime histories for a select few members of the Mob, linking them all to a greyhound racetrack, and ultimately to a wealthy member of old Arizonan society – a man who prefers to remain untouched inside the barb wire of his isolated desert compound. Corruption is the theme of the second novel by Charles L. Mahoney, author of the literary debut: Story of The Ghost. But is corruption really what it’s all about? Will Lech learn the FBI’s definition and take it to heart? Will he go the proverbial ‘extra-mile’ when pushed to the brink? In true Thriller fashion, The Gray Hound is designed to keep readers guessing from page to page. Nothing is as it seems, even up until the last chapter, the final word.
