Liquid Cool: The Cyberpunk Detective Series (Liquid Cool Book 1)

by Austin Dragon


A Cyberpunk Thriller To Keep You on the Edge of Your Seat!

Liquid Cool is the action-packed (and funny), cyberpunk detective series.

How Much is One Life Worth?

In the sci-fi/cyberpunk detective series, author Austin Dragon shows why you never want to meet a cyborg in a dark alley. Liquid Cool is a cross between Blade Runner and the Maltese Falcon. There is plenty of gritty action, suspense, thrills, and even a few laughs.

It’s cyberpunk reimagined—an ever-rainy world of colossal skyscrapers, hovercars, flashy neon streets, and futuristic mechanization. Metropolis isn’t a bad place, but it isn’t a good one either. Uber-governments and megacorporations fight for control of the fifty-million-plus super-city, but so does crime.

We meet Cruz, our private eye (and unlikely hero), in this super-city with a million victims and perpetrators. Watch out for tech-tricksters, analog hustlers, and digital gangsters—psychos, samurais, and cyborgs aplenty. Visitors have a way of becoming permanent attractions.

Welcome to the high-tech, low-life world of Liquid Cool.

Precious Galaxy Boxed Set (Books 1-4): Corruption, Investigation, Determination, Obliteration

by

 

A new evil lurks in the darkness


After an explosion, the crew of a battlecruiser mysteriously disappears.

This digital box set contains four exciting, action-packed books.

Corruption

After an explosion, the crew of a battlecruiser mysteriously disappears.

Bailey and Lewis, complete strangers, find themselves suddenly onboard the damaged ship. Lewis hasn’t worked a case in years, not since the final one broke his spirit and his bank account. The last thing Bailey remembers is preparing to take down a fugitive on Onyx Station.

Mysteries are harder to solve when there’s no evidence left behind.

Bailey and Lewis don’t know how they got onboard Ricky Bobby or why. However, they quickly learn that whatever was responsible for the explosion and disappearance of the crew is still on the ship.

Monsters are real and what this one can do changes everything.

The new team bands together to discover what happened and how to fight the monster lurking in the bottom of the battlecruiser.

Investigation

A new evil lurks in the darkness.
The missing crew of Ricky Bobby are being held in the Precious Galaxy.  

The rescue team must quickly orient themselves with this new territory, which isn’t governed by Federation law. The neighboring natives are on the defense, having recently been attacked by a strange, black monster.

More startling, the population of an entire planet has been wiped out. Once again, no trace left behind.

Bailey and Lewis know where the databases are located that hold the crew. However, Solomon Vance isn’t making this easy. 

An important factor is missing. Without it, the rescue efforts are futile.

When Monstre and Starboards Corp learn that the new team is after them, it’s a race to rescue the crew before the game completely changes. Solomon Vance has power, technology and a monster that does his bidding.

Determination
Bailey and Lewis are more determined than ever to find Ricky Bobby’s missing crew.

Monstre Corp knows they are on the hunt, and Solomon Vance isn’t letting them get close.

The monster is still out there, a threat they can’t stop.

Jack decides the only way to win is to fake their own deaths.

If Vance believes they’re dead, he’ll let down his guard.

An epic battle ensues when the crew returns to Starboards Corp with two missions: free the children and take down the evil corporation. Timing is everything. And not getting blown up is absolutely key.

Obliteration

The crew is relieved by Dejoure’s perplexing ability to soothe the monster, but that won’t keep them safe for long.

Precious Galaxy Coffee Company is under constant attack.

Someone wants to take out the biggest giant in the galaxy.

The team goes after the other databases only to learn something that changes everything.

Vance is always one step ahead of them.

Not all hope is lost. Hatch brings back a key crew member; someone who can help them defeat Monstre Corp.

The last act of this heart-pounding series delivers a ton of action as Bailey and Lewis rush to save the crew before it’s too late. Everyone’s freedom is at stake. Vance would rather go down in a blaze, taking everything with him, then be defeated.

Experience this exciting mystery sci-fi saga and the latest addition to the expanded Kurtherian Gambit Universe. If you’re a fan of Dark Matter, Altered Carbon, or Star Wars, you’ll love this riveting new space opera.

Instinctual (Rise Of The Iliri Book 2)

by Auryn Hadley


EVERY MAN WANTS HER. MOST WANT TO KILL HER. GOOD LUCK TO THEM…

Instinctual is the second beautifully-written book in Auryn Hadley’s action-packed epic fantasy series chronicling the rise of the Iliri, a species bred by humans to be fierce protectors. Sal is the rarest of them, a full-blooded female iliri who will fight tooth, nail, blades, pikes, and shields to protect her dearest friends—also her comrades-in-arms and sometimes lovers-- and to free her people.

Now that Sal has won her place in the Black Blades, an elite special ops unit within the army of the Conglomerate of Free Citizens, she’s struggling to find answers about how to fit in with her new family. That’s a challenging assignment; it’s an all-male family of seven of the fiercest warriors in existence, all of them iliri with superpowers kept secret from humans.

Sal’s Black Blade commander and lover, Blaec, does his best to guide her, with the full understanding that she will eclipse him and that he must prepare her to do so. But his struggle is the opposite of Sal’s: he is only half iliri, and all-too-human. The salvation of the iliri race and the Conglomerate depends on his ability to walk in both worlds, and to guide Sal. His best advice: “Listen to your instincts more and everything will work out. Our entire culture can be summed up pretty easily. We do what is natural.”

For the matriarchal iliri, what is natural is that Sal is the undisputed leader of her pack. She makes everyone better; she especially makes everyone fight better. But why? When asked, they struggle to come up with a better answer than “She smells really good.” It’s an iliri thing.

Here’s another iliri thing that’s going to take a while for the humans to get used to: females were bred to be seductive; they possess the ability to make all males desire them, but they choose their men—typically at least two men. Though they may have as many as three or four in their harem.

Now, in this sequel to Hadley’s BloodLust, the secret is out.The world knows the Black Blades aren't human. And their largely independent unit must learn to fight alongside humans as the Conglomerate faces threats from the Emperor of Terric, who wants to exterminate the entire iliri species and is moving to conquer every country between his own and the Conglomerate. To stop him, the Conglomerate must rely on its best unit, composed of soldiers many consider less than human; and the Blades must rely on soldiers they were bred to regard as prey. It’s complicated.

But always exciting, as well as sexy, and action-packed. Women readers will thrill to the reverse harem idea that pushes the boundaries of epic fantasy in this groundbreaking series that may remind some of Avatar without the scary beasts; or even Game Of Thrones, but happier, with more color—and starring a dazzling female protagonist. Fans of Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern will find Sal’s planet Ogun a thrilling destination for their next fantasy fix.

Oh, and by the way: This is a complete novel, not a cliffhanger. Also--because of the exotic sexual instincts of the illiri, it may not be suitable for humans under 18.

Undercover DEA agent, Fiyero “Fire” Dimas, is drowning in problems: a soul-crushing job, an inadequate marriage and a teenage daughter with suitors of the worst kind. Then there’s the drug dealers he double-crossed, and the "incident" at his kids’ high school. With the added complication of an attack on the city, can Fiyero pull himself together long enough to salvage his work, put his family back together and avoid the storm headed his way?

Ciudad Juarez is a ferocious city where guns, drugs and human trafficking rule the land. Guatemalan born Eliana Gutierrez ventures into the heart of this perilous urban jungle in search of her kidnapped niece. In a locale as hostile as Juarez, Eliana will come face-to-face with a rancorous man who will either be her salvation, or her bitter end. Under the cover of all-out war, Eliana will risk everything for the child…

The Bear and the Nightingale: A Novel (Winternight Trilogy)

by Katherine Arden


Katherine Arden’s bestselling debut novel spins an irresistible spell as it announces the arrival of a singular talent with a gorgeous voice.
 
“A beautiful deep-winter story, full of magic and monsters and the sharp edges of growing up.”—Naomi Novik, bestselling author of Uprooted

Winter lasts most of the year at the edge of the Russian wilderness, and in the long nights, Vasilisa and her siblings love to gather by the fire to listen to their nurse’s fairy tales. Above all, Vasya loves the story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon. Wise Russians fear him, for he claims unwary souls, and they honor the spirits that protect their homes from evil.
 
Then Vasya’s widowed father brings home a new wife from Moscow. Fiercely devout, Vasya’s stepmother forbids her family from honoring their household spirits, but Vasya fears what this may bring. And indeed, misfortune begins to stalk the village.
 
But Vasya’s stepmother only grows harsher, determined to remake the village to her liking and to groom her rebellious stepdaughter for marriage or a convent. As the village’s defenses weaken and evil from the forest creeps nearer, Vasilisa must call upon dangerous gifts she has long concealed—to protect her family from a threat sprung to life from her nurse’s most frightening tales.

Praise for The Bear and the Nightingale

“Stunning . . . will enchant readers from the first page. . . . with an irresistible heroine who wants only to be free of the bonds placed on her gender and claim her own fate.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“An extraordinary retelling of a very old tale . . . The Bear and the Nightingale is a wonderfully layered novel of family and the harsh wonders of deep winter magic.”—Robin Hobb

“Haunting and lyrical, The Bear and the Nightingale tugs at the heart and quickens the pulse. I can’t wait for her next book.”—Terry Brooks

Seveneves: A Novel

by Neal Stephenson

 

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Anathem, Reamde, and Cryptonomicon comes an exciting and thought-provoking science fiction epic—a grand story of annihilation and survival spanning five thousand years.

What would happen if the world were ending?

A catastrophic event renders the earth a ticking time bomb. In a feverish race against the inevitable, nations around the globe band together to devise an ambitious plan to ensure the survival of humanity far beyond our atmosphere, in outer space.

But the complexities and unpredictability of human nature coupled with unforeseen challenges and dangers threaten the intrepid pioneers, until only a handful of survivors remain . . .

Five thousand years later, their progeny—seven distinct races now three billion strong—embark on yet another audacious journey into the unknown . . . to an alien world utterly transformed by cataclysm and time: Earth.

A writer of dazzling genius and imaginative vision, Neal Stephenson combines science, philosophy, technology, psychology, and literature in a magnificent work of speculative fiction that offers a portrait of a future that is both extraordinary and eerily recognizable. As he did in Anathem, Cryptonomicon, the Baroque Cycle, and Reamde, Stephenson explores some of our biggest ideas and perplexing challenges in a breathtaking saga that is daring, engrossing, and altogether brilliant.

To sixteen-year-old Micka, all words have flavours. Her emotions come with such force that she can’t help but carve them into her skin. The night she decides to kill herself, she meets Runner -- a mysterious stranger who makes her question everything she’s learned about the end of the world.

Kill.
Survive.

Because the final wars were never meant to end.

Terry Henry Walton Chronicles Boxed Set

This digital box set contains the first six books of the best-selling Terry Henry Walton Chronicles series from Craig Martelle and Michael Anderle.

Nomad Found

Can Terry Henry Walton help bring humanity back to civilization?

He finds that he needs help and starts building his Force de Guerre, a paramilitary group that will secure this new world from those who would take and destroy. 

When the enemies of peace appear before the FDG is ready, Terry partners with a werewolf to fight a battle that he must win. 

Nomad Redeemed

Sawyer Brown is no more, but he was just the minor opening act...

Terry Henry and Charumati (Char) have to deal with her Alpha coming back, the new refugees getting settle in the town and .. Beer!

With the FDG doubling in size, Terry Henry needs to bring about a little organizational structure to the group.While also deciding how to have that conversation with Char about her lineage...

Not sure how that is going to go, Terry Henry had better figure it out, or he is going to be up to his armpits in Werewolves and won't be sure if he can depend on his one ace-in-the-hole.

Or not.

Nomad Unleashed

The heat is unrelenting. The Wastelands are coming for New Boulder. Nature’s a total bitch.

And then there’s Werewolf heat.

Terry Henry Walton has to come to grips with the reality of his situation.

Civilization cannot return to humanity without help. More help than even an enhanced human can give. Terry and Char take their relationship to a new level before they head out to find a new home to save the people of New Boulder, to rally the survivors that the world is coming back...

And for themselves.

Nomad Supreme

Terry and Char cross the Wastelands returning to New Boulder carrying a message of hope. They’d found a better place. Could they move the whole town there, and would it be safer?

They have a lead on Terry’s white whale, a secure military facility. 

What will they find and can they break in?

Nomad's Fury

Settled into their new home of North Chicago, Terry and Char find more enemies than they suspected. Faced with their greatest threat, they put the FDG into action against a Forsaken who's surrounded himself with a small army of loyal humans. With Akio's aid, they go to war.

Nomad's Justice

North Chicago begins to thrive and a return trip to New York City shows Terry and Char something they didn’t expect.

Terry Henry Walton envisioned the Force de Guerre as a unit to keep evil away from those who wanted to live in peace. Akio is of the same mind, but he sees the whole world as a place that needs the protection that Terry and his people can provide.

Record of a Spaceborn Few (Wayfarers Book 3)

by Becky Chambers

 

Return to the sprawling universe of the Galactic Commons, as humans, artificial intelligence, aliens, and some beings yet undiscovered explore what it means to be a community in this exciting third adventure in the acclaimed and multi-award-nominated science fiction Wayfarers series, brimming with heartwarming characters and dazzling space adventure.

Hundreds of years ago, the last humans on Earth boarded the Exodus Fleet in search of a new home among the stars. After centuries spent wandering empty space, their descendants were eventually accepted by the well-established species that govern the Milky Way.

But that was long ago. Today, the Exodus Fleet is a living relic, the birthplace of many, yet a place few outsiders have ever visited. While the Exodans take great pride in their original community and traditions, their culture has been influenced by others beyond their bulkheads. As many Exodans leave for alien cities or terrestrial colonies, those who remain are left to ponder their own lives and futures: What is the purpose of a ship that has reached its destination? Why remain in space when there are habitable worlds available to live? What is the price of sustaining their carefully balanced way of life—and is it worth saving at all?

A young apprentice, a lifelong spacer with young children, a planet-raised traveler, an alien academic, a caretaker for the dead, and an Archivist whose mission is to ensure no one’s story is forgotten, wrestle with these profound universal questions. The answers may seem small on the galactic scale, but to these individuals, it could mean everything.

The Golden Claw

by K.A. Faul

Some in her clan believe Mina is the culmination of a prophecy related to the First Shifter. Others worry she’s a dangerous element who might bring them back to the dark days of wolf-on-wolf bloodshed.

But Mina only wants to protect her friends and family.

When enemies threaten her Rite of Passage, Mina realizes that werewolves can’t hide from the rest of the world, and she can’t dodge her responsibilities.

The ultimate strength of the wolf is the pack.

 

But what happens when one wolf might be a risk to her pack?

When the end comes for you, when there are no more rules and survival at all costs threatens to tear apart the moral fabric of the world, how far will you go to survive?

*Rated PG-13 for mild language and moderate violence.*

Early Riser: A Novel

by Jasper Fforde


An instant New York Times bestseller

The new standalone novel from bestselling author Jasper Fforde


Every Winter, the human population hibernates.

During those bitterly cold four months, the nation is a snow-draped landscape of desolate loneliness, devoid of human activity.

Well, not quite.

Your name is Charlie Worthing and it's your first season with the Winter Consuls, the committed but mildly unhinged group of misfits who are responsible for ensuring the hibernatory safe passage of the sleeping masses.

You are investigating an outbreak of viral dreams which you dismiss as nonsense; nothing more than a quirky artefact born of the sleeping mind.

When the dreams start to kill people, it's unsettling.

When you get the dreams too, it's weird.

When they start to come true, you begin to doubt your sanity.

But teasing truth from the Winter is never easy: You have to avoid the Villains and their penchant for murder, kidnapping and stamp collecting; ensure you aren't eaten by Nightwalkers, whose thirst for human flesh can only be satisfied by comfort food; and sidestep the increasingly less-than-mythical WinterVolk.

But so long as you remember to wrap up warmly, you'll be fine.

Unquiet Souls (Project Demon Hunters Book 1)

by Christine Pope

 

Their chemistry could make their show a monster hit — if the monsters don’t kill them first.

On the surface, psychologist Audrey Barrett is the perfect co-host for Michael Covenant’s new cable series, Project Demon Hunters. She’s smart, articulate, and photogenic as hell.

There’s just one problem. Michael has made it his mission to stay out of her orbit. Thanks to his producer’s stubborn insistence, however, there’s no avoiding her — which means Michael will have to bury his secrets even deeper.

After the tragedy that took her parents more than ten years earlier, Audrey has kept herself on the fringe of the paranormal world. But with her small therapy practice floundering, the money the show’s offering is too good to pass up.

From the moment they step inside a rundown mansion, things start flying: sparks between Audrey and Michael, not to mention furniture hurled by something determined to make sure their investigation fails. Worse, evil seems to have followed Audrey home — and she discovers why the man at her side on camera is the last man she can trust in real life.
