Federal Agents of Magic Boxed Set 1

by TR Cameron et al

 

FBI Agent Diana Sheen is an agent with a secret...

Find out her secret in this 4-book boxed set full of action, intrigue, and tons of magic!

Magic Ops:

…she carries a badge and a troll, along with a little magic. But her Most Wanted List is going to take a little extra effort. She’ll have to embrace her powers and up her game to take down new threats,

Not to mention deal with the troll that’s adopted her.

All signs point to a serious threat lurking just beyond sight, pulling the strings to put the forces of good in harm’s way.

Magic or mundane, you break the law, and Diana’s gonna find you, tag you and bring you in.

Watch out magical baddies, this agent can level the playing field.

It’s all in a day’s work for the newest Federal Agent of Magic.

Agents of Mayhem:

New city, new troubles. It’s going to take all the magic Special Agent Diana Sheen can gather to keep the peace.

But will it be enough?

Diana runs a secret Federal agency that combats magic mixed with wicked. Her team cleans up the worst streets, disguised as bounty hunters.

Challenge #1 is a small troll and his ongoing obsession with action films. Good thing he’s a helluva fighter too.

Still, is it enough? Dark magic has a new twist born from an ancient cult and they’re playing for keeps.

Good thing Agent Sheen knows how to play rough.

It’s all in a day’s work at the secret bureau of the Federal Agents of Magic.

Counter Ops:

Special Agent Diana Sheen runs a secret agency…

…locked squarely in the crosshairs of a magical conspiracy far greater than she’d imagined.

The bad guys are seeking artifacts to increase their power, and it feels like they’re leading up to something big.

Can she stop them in time?

The attacks are getting personal. Other bureaus have taken heavy losses, and only her team’s magical abilities have kept them from the same fate.

That includes a troll uncovering magical do-gooders or an acerbic Drow learning to use her magic.

Everything is getting better, including their gear thanks to Kayleigh.

But is better good enough? No way to tell, except by putting boot to tail.

Magic or mundane, you hurt people in their town, and FAM is gonna bring you down.

It’s all in a day’s work at the newest bureau of the Federal Agents of Magic.

Agents of Chaos:

Special Agent Diana Sheen has been targeted…

…by magical villains determined to bring her and her agency down.

The bad guys have something big planned, and like a storm over the horizon, she can feel it coming but doesn’t know how bad it will turn out to be.

The answer? Really, really bad. Diana and her team will need to be at the top of their game to survive.

The heat is rising, but Diana won’t abandon her responsibilities. No way, no how. Which means there’s no way out but through.

Magic or mundane, you hurt people in their city, and FAM is gonna bring you down.

It’s all in a day’s work at the newest bureau of the Federal Agents of Magic.

For a thrilling action-adventure with spells, guns, hand-to-hand combat, and just the right amount of snark, join the team today!

The Deep

by Alma Katsu


From the acclaimed and award-winning author of The Hunger comes an eerie, psychological twist on one of the world's most renowned tragedies, the sinking of the Titanic and the ill-fated sail of its sister ship, the Britannic.

Someone, or something, is haunting the ship. Between mysterious disappearances and sudden deaths, the guests of the Titanic have found themselves suspended in an eerie, unsettling twilight zone from the moment they set sail. Several of them, including maid Annie Hebley, guest Mark Fletcher, and millionaires Madeleine Astor and Benjamin Guggenheim, are convinced there's something sinister--almost otherwordly--afoot. But before they can locate the source of the danger, as the world knows, disaster strikes.

Years later, Annie, having survived that fateful night, has attempted to put her life back together. Working as a nurse on the sixth voyage of the Titanic's sister ship, the Britannic, newly refitted as a hospital ship, she happens across an unconscious Mark, now a soldier fighting in World War I. At first, Annie is thrilled and relieved to learn that he too survived the sinking, but soon, Mark's presence awakens deep-buried feelings and secrets, forcing her to reckon with the demons of her past--as they both discover that the terror may not yet be over.

Brilliantly combining the supernatural with the height of historical disaster, The Deep is an exploration of love and destiny, desire and innocence, and, above all, a quest to understand how our choices can lead us inexorably toward our doom.

by Debra Castaneda


THE SENIOR YEAR NO ONE EXPECTED

“It grabbed hold and kept me turning the pages until I finished.” Goodreads review


Teenage girls are turning up dead in the Northern California town of Hillside. They are blonde, seventeen, and they have been burned to death.

Samantha Reyes is a Hillside High School senior and the co-editor of her school’s newspaper, The Clarion. When a girl is discovered burned to death in the school bathroom, Samantha is determined to get to the bottom of it.

At a local police press conference, Samantha plucks up the courage to ask the police chief whether spontaneous combustion is being considered as a cause. Samantha’s question is caught on camera and goes viral.

Furious, the school principal accuses Samantha and her co-editor Alfie Marquez of sensationalism and threatens the future of The Clarion. But Samantha is determined to solve the mystery behind the spate of murders, even if it means the paper gets shut down.

For a start, Samantha knows there has been an outbreak of appliance fires around Hillside, beginning with the death of the first girl.

There’s also the curious history of the Wirth Mansion, a local landmark with a dark past and a reputation as a haunted house. And on top of that, Samantha’s blonde, seventeen-year-old best friend Destiny is starting to behave strangely.

Battling to follow her investigative instincts, keep The Clarion alive, and protect her friend from a horrible fate, Samantha starts to see a pattern in the deaths. All too soon, she and her friends are drawn into a world of supernatural danger, and not even the police can protect them.

Has Samantha’s investigation led her to a foe she can’t fight? Or is the key to the mystery closer than she first imagined?

Halley, stuck covering house-sitting jobs for her self-absorbed mom, has Hollywood dreams but no real life. Until the day covering for her mom leads to a tumble back to London, 1598, where Halley meets a hot, rich earl named Edmund. And accidentally brings him to the 21st century.

Halley just needs to keep from getting killed, save Edmund (and history) before it's too late, and not fall for a guy who can't stick around.

No matter how much she want him to.

Seven children born with a genius gene.

One professor that connects them all.
Hundreds of forgotten graves.
Zero explanation.

A unique group of teenagers. They should have been celebrated worldwide as outstanding products of bio-technology, but instead, they are abandoned and anonymous. An ordinary girl next door, a homeless boy rummaging through rubbish, a pampered child of a well-to-do family. They are all but forgotten, until the mysterious disappearance of one of the children brings out of hiding the man that connects them all – Professor Harald Wolff, the geneticist who created them. No longer the distinguished scientist he once was; he is now blind, broken, and a recluse.

Brought together, the remaining children's abilities evolve in unexpected ways. Forced to confront an unknown enemy, the full potential of their genius is unlocked. But exceptional as they are, they must learn the dangers of being too clever for their own good, and that they are just one small strand in the complex web of life.
