After Anderson: Aftermath of a Tragedy

by Jamila Mikhail

 

The day that Anderson brought a gun to school was the day Aly's life changed forever. Her fellow classmates were murdered right before her eyes as her former best friend embarked on the deadliest high school massacre since Columbine. Now, nearly two years later, Aly sets foot in the halls that nearly cost her her life for the first time since the shooting, ready to face her demons.

Unanswered questions linger, anxiety abounds and flashbacks are frequent as Aly struggles to understand how Anderson could've mercilessly gunned down her friends and classmates and how she's not only going to forgive him, but herself as well, for the role she might have played in influencing his actions.

Was she to blame? Did she have blood on her hands? Could she have done something more? Could anyone have done anything more? Aly sets out to find the elusive answers to just that as she also attempts to rebuild the life that was shattered by gunfire that otherwise quiet Friday morning nearly two years prior.

by Claudia Gray

 

From the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Lost Stars, Bloodline, and Leia, Princess of Alderaan comes a thrilling sci-fi adventure that Kass Morgan, bestselling author of The 100 series, calls "startlingly original and achingly romantic...nothing short of masterful."
 
She's a soldier: Noemi Vidal will risk anything to protect her planet, Genesis, including her own life. To their enemies on Earth, she's a rebel.
 
He's a machine: Abandoned in space for years, utterly alone, Abel's advanced programming has begun to evolve. He wants only to protect his creator, and to be free. To the people of Genesis, he's an abomination.
 
Noemi and Abel are enemies in an interstellar war, forced by chance to work together on a daring journey through the stars. Their efforts would end the fighting for good, but they're not without sacrifice. The stakes are even higher than either of them first realized, and the more time they spend together, the more they're forced to question everything they'd been taught was true.
 
An epic and romantic adventure, perfect for fans of The Lunar Chronicles and Illuminae.

From the #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR of the award-winning Beyond the Grave paranormal romance series.

"...a contemporary psychological thriller with a solid plot line which had me reading late into the night. I thoroughly enjoyed every word." 5 Stars, Readers Favorite

***

One lie is enough to question all truths.

As I lie here in my front hallway, in the place where it all began, I wonder what would have happened if I’d never opened the door that afternoon?

Would she have gone somewhere else? Would she have swept off in another direction, an alternative reality where our lives would never have crossed paths?

And now I’m lying here, blood pooling beneath my body, deep crimson smears on cold white tiles, remembering every sordid moment in vivid detail.

There’s a shadow standing over me.

“I want you to die here, slowly and alone.” Her voice is cold, emotionless. “And I want you to use the time to think about what you did. And when you take your last breath, I want you to realize it’s all your fault. All of it!”

I drift in and out of consciousness and wonder if I had my chance to do it over again, if I had the choice, would I choose not to open the door that day?

Even after everything, I know that I would.

I’d go through it all again, and then some, if it meant the chance to be with Zach just one more time…

An unforgettable Romantic Thriller that is impossible to put down. Get your copy now!

"Author Athena Daniels has created an extremely readable and relatable tale in The Scream Behind Her Smile. As a lead character Claire was real, believable and someone the reader clearly wanted to root for while at the same time feeling this intense desire to shake her out of her complacency and her naivety. What I particularly liked about this story was the author’s obvious desire not to minimize the incredible effect losing a child has on the parents. No amount of advice “to move on” or “to let it go” is ever going to make any difference. No parent dreams of this ultimate tragedy and when it happens, it is totally devastating to the parents. This whole premise was beautifully and sensitively portrayed by the author. Until you forgive yourself for what happened, you can never make peace with the present or the future.

The relationship between Zach and Claire was moving, powerful and incredibly sexy. I did love that Zach not only had a past but that he was actively dealing with reconciling with that past. Both Claire and Zach felt they had huge impediments in their lives to them ever being happy again but Daniels skilfully showed us that there is a way to let go without forgetting. I can highly recommend this book, especially if you love romance with some real meat on its bones. This is what this book has." Grant Leishman Readers Favorite, 5 Stars

WINNER of the 2018 Campbell Award for Best Novel A WALL STREET JOURNAL Best Science Fiction Book of 2017

In this science fiction thriller, brothers are pitted against each other as a pandemic threatens to destabilize world governments by exerting a subtle mind control over survivors. Neil Johns has just started his dream job as a code breaker in the NSA when his brother, Paul, a mycologist, goes missing on a trip to collect samples in the Amazon jungle. Paul returns with a gap in his memory and a fungal infection that almost kills him. But once he recuperates, he has enhanced communication, memory, and pattern recognition. Meanwhile, something is happening in South America; others, like Paul, have also fallen ill and recovered with abilities they didn't have before. But that's not the only pattern--the survivors, from entire remote Brazilian tribes to American tourists, all seem to be working toward a common, and deadly, goal. Neil soon uncovers a secret and unexplained alliance between governments that have traditionally been enemies. Meanwhile Paul becomes increasingly secretive and erratic. Paul sees the fungus as the next stage of human evolution, while Neil is convinced that it is driving its human hosts to destruction. Brother must oppose brother on an increasingly fraught international stage, with the stakes: the free will of every human on earth. Can humanity use this force for good, or are we becoming the pawns of an utterly alien intelligence?

Kitty Confidential

by Molly Fitz


I was just your normal twenty-something with seven associate degrees and no idea what I wanted to do with my life. That is, until I died... Well, almost.

As if a near-death experience at the hands of an old coffeemaker wasn't embarrassing enough, I woke up to find I could talk to animals. Or rather one animal in particular.

His full name is Octavius Maxwell Ricardo Edmund Frederick Fulton, but since that's way too long for anyone to remember, I've taken to calling him Octo-Cat. He talks so fast he can be difficult to understand, but seems to be telling me that his late owner didn't die of natural causes like everyone believes.

Well, now it looks like I no longer have a choice, apparently my life calling is to serve as Blueberry Bay's first ever pet whisperer P.I while maintaining my façade as a paralegal at the offices of Fulton, Thompson & Associates.

I just have one question: How did Dr. Doolittle make this gig look so easy?

"Molly Fitz's debut novel, KITTY CONFIDENTIAL, is a fantastic start to a new series. Molly has not only provided a fun, fast-paced mystery, she's also brought great characters to life. I enjoyed spending time in her world, and I look forward to future books in the series!" ~ Misty Bane, Author of the Blackwood Bay Witches Cozy Mysteries
 
 
"Molly Fitz hits her first cozy mystery out of the park. KITTY CONFIDENTIAL is a great read - fast and fun and is the promising first book in what should be a terrific series." ~ Ronnie Roberts, Author of The Complete Bootcamp for Fiction Writers

End of Lies: A Political Thriller (Countless Lies Book 3)

by Bradley West

 

TO SAFEGUARD HIS FAMILY, HE MUST BECOME A MURDERER


It’s August 2014 and former CIA officer Bob Nolan is declared dead after a Russia missile destroys Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine. The president persuades Nolan to use his perfect cover to pursue “Mr. Love,” the sinister leader of Higher Love, a right wing cabal no longer satisfied only with subverting US foreign policy. Two years later, covert operator Nolan has infiltrated Higher Love’s IT network and has Mr. Love in his crosshairs when the president widens Nolan’s brief to include Russia’s 2016 election rigging deceptions.

An NSA traitor working for Russia identifies Nolan, and two arch nemeses—one ex-KGB and one ex-CIA—aim to kill him once and for all. Nolan stalks the hunters as he crisscrosses the country in pursuit of Mr. Love’s identity and seeks sanctuary for his fleeing family.

Meanwhile, Higher Love finalizes plans for a right wing coup. A North Korea nuke is on the loose in the US compliments of China. Nolan’s former lover and bitter enemy flies to the US to decide whether China will supply the arming codes. Love’s double cross forces Nolan into the role of her rescuer. In the shadow of the Alamo, the ragtag team faces adversaries from every direction.

With victory in sight, Nolan is forced to choose one last time between family and country.

 

From Veterans of America’s Secret Wars

“West creates realistic characters and deploys them in an intriguingly complex plot. The result is an enjoyable, fast-paced thriller that I couldn't put down.”

Richard Holm, Best Selling Author


The Craft We Chose: My Life in the CIA

End of Lies provides compelling characters and meticulous research to deliver nonstop action. Just when you catch your breath, another showdown looms."

Howard Wasdin, New York Times Best Selling Author

SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL

Praise for End of Lies

The author provided advance reader copies to a small audience in return for honest reviews.

In Countless Lies West nails the conspiracy espionage field

“I devoured the first two books in the Countless Lies series and End of Lies was no exception. Once again, I found myself unable to put the book down, reading it in three sittings. (Tip: don’t read this book at bedtime, you’ll never get any sleep.) Like the earlier books, End of Lies is meticulously researched, and the complicated, weaving and turning plots stand up to fact-checking scrutiny. Bradley West has more than delivered again, and the icing on the cake is that a fourth book is planned. Although third in chronology, End of Lies is the place to start as it is a layer or two less complex and really moves along.”

The Witch's Tower (Twisted Ever After Book 1)

by Tamara Grantham

Gothel is a witch. Punished for the actions of her mother, her choice is simple: either she stands guard over Princess Rapunzel—or she dies. But just because a choice is easy doesn’t mean it’s pleasant. Protecting Rapunzel means watching as the princess lays trapped in a tower, bedridden by hair that is so long and heavy it’s slowly driving her insane. Gothel’s life has become one of imprisonment and solitude as well—until a prince and his handsome squire appear at the tower.

Only one object can cut Rapunzel’s hair and end the curse: a pair of magical shears. But the shears are guarded by the most terrifying witches in the land, who also happen to be Gothel’s aunts. As Gothel and the prince’s squire, Raj Talmund, work to form a plan, she finds herself more and more drawn to the mysterious young man from the Outerlands. Unfortunately, his destiny is far more dangerous than she wants to admit: to save a princess, he must kill the witch who's been forced to guard her.

THE WITCH'S TOWER is the first in an inspired new series of fairy-tale retellings from award-winning fantasy author Tamara Grantham.
