| Emissary of the Devil: Testimony of the Damned |
by K.G. Reuss
$0.00, 366 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (17 reviews), #21 in > Romance > Paranormal > Angels
Centuries ago, Brax committed unforgivable sins, killing his lover and himself, and to escape eternal damnation, he made a bargain with the Devil. Now immortal, he roams the earth, corrupting and collecting souls for Hell’s infernal legions in anticipation of the coming apocalypse. And he is very, very good at what he does.
When he is given the special assignment of corrupting Maggie Westbrook, a seemingly timid high school senior who also happens to be one of the Nephilim, children of angels with the purest of mortal souls, Brax believes his goal of commanding his own legion in Hell’s army is finally within his reach. Maggie isn’t just any Nephilim; she’s the lamb who will break the seals that will usher in Armageddon, and her corruption will tip the scales of that final battle towards Hell.
But he quickly finds that the job will be more difficult than he first anticipated. For one thing, he has competition in the form of the demon Corbin Black, whose powers of corruption rival his own. And Maggie is not unguarded, as the Nephilim and host of Heaven will do everything they can to stop him. Most disconcerting, though, is Maggie herself. From the moment Brax first sees her, he is drawn to her purity and innocence, and as he comes to know her, long-forgotten emotions begin to rise within him, emotions he hasn’t felt for centuries…
While Testimony is an epic story of good and evil battling for control of an innocent soul, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance, it’s also the more personal story of a deeply flawed man trying as hard as he can to overcome the devastating sins of his past and find true love and redemption.
This book contains mature themes, violence, drug use, drinking, and sexual situations. Reader discretion is advised.

by Mike Stop Continues
$0.00, 78 pages, 4.9 out of 5.0 (16 reviews), #1 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Myths & Legends > Asian
One thing stands between the djinni warlords and their dominion of Earth—spray paint.
In the secret recesses of New York City, King Cage battles the djinn, a race of ageless elementals who seek to make our world slave to their desires. Only the King can stop them. Not with his brawn or his brain, but his art.
Night after night, the djinn press into our world where the veil is weakest. And night after night, the King paints, capturing the essence of those who would break through in his graffiti, trapping them there for good.
But when a street kid steals his cans in the middle of binding a particularly ferocious djinni, the King must race against time to take back his supplies and finish the piece. If he doesn’t, the djinni will kill thousands. Millions. Maybe everyone, everywhere.
The King had better get his cans back soon.
King Cage is a superhero urban fantasy series in the vein of The Dark Knight Returns, Daredevil, and Watchmen, fusing electrifying action sequences, realistic characters, and daring, original storytelling.
Follow the King through abandoned train stations, collapsed sewers, forgotten dungeons, and ancient ruins deep below New York City, to worlds where the djinn rule and their Ashen Lord’s dominion is absolute. Can the King stop the horde before they overrun the city, the country, and the world?
“A man,” the djinni said, its voice crackling like leaves on the fire. “A little man.”
“Not so little,” the King murmured. He shoved himself over the crossbeam behind him and down into the next of the track’s crevices, determined to keep moving. But he wasn’t fast enough.
The djinni grabbed the King by both his biceps and lifted. The King’s feet left the floor, and his arms flared hot.
The King swung his leg forward, connecting with the djinni’s stomach. But the creature only sneered and squeezed more tightly. The King’s skin squished like raw dough between the djinni’s fingers and the fabric of his shirt caught fire.
Was it over? Would the djinni take his arms? His hands? His art?
“No way!” the King growled, walking his feet up the djinni’s chest. “No fucking way!”
The King kicked in an effort to break the creature’s hold on his arms. The pain was boundless, bottomless, thick. The King’s skin boiled and pulled with the force of his feet against the djinni’s breastplate. It blistered and cracked and cauterized the wound again and again as the Red’s grip—and the top layer of the King’s skin—slid down the sides of his arms.
Already, his fingers felt cold and numb. Already, the end approached. The King had only one thought now. One all-consuming thought:
How the fuck am I going to take the djinni with me?

The Orc's Leader, General Mashanga, catches wind of Lord Ky'debaul’s plan and sends a party of three Orcs to follow Lord Ky'debaul and the dragon to this other world. Once there, the Orcs begin to track down the whereabouts of the elves and the Time Dragon.
The world the elves have chased the dragon to is Aaron Gillian's world. Here she resides with her friends, a dog named Keja, a cat named Chancy, Marshall who is the boy next door and an old man named Jurgith.
Keja and Chancy have heard talk about the woods of strange creatures being about. Little did they know they were in for their great adventure.
Lord Ky'debaul captures Aaron, Marshall and Jurgith when he learns of Aaron's ability to talk to the woodland creatures. He believes she is the human spoken of in the prophecy written of in his world and believes she will be able to help him capture the Time Dragon.
The Orcs too have learned of her ability. They decide to seek Aaron out in hopes that she will help them save the Time Dragon. They then discover she has been captured by Lord Ky'debaul and must rescue her and her friends.
Who will succeed? Will Lord Ky'debaul succeed in killing the Time Dragon or will the Orcs manage to thwart his plan?

| Paradise - a divine comedy (Jamie's Myth Book 1) |

You think you’ve got problems.
My favourite Afghan restaurant closed down. My girlfriend left.
A bad-tempered lawyer named Keziah crashed her car into mine. And we couldn’t even die properly.
Paradise turned out to be a cage in the heavens where evil spirits market-tested new temptations, where everyone could see our memories, and where we were stuck forever.
A snake with a personality disorder offered us a way out. The trouble was, it meant facing up to the worst problem of all:
Paradise — a divine comedy is a disorderly romp through death, life, Afghan food and redemption.
'Paradise - A divine comedy' shows what happens when what's hidden inside us, comes out.

'‘Hitchhikers Guide meets Screwtape meets Pilgrims Progress meets the Discworld!’ (Phil Grasham)
'...absolutely loved it. A hysterical surrealist take on what is out there after life on earth, or next to life on earth, or simultaneous with life on earth, or whatever. A story of Gods in kilts, crystal clear memories, and walls made of our pixelated fears. Delightful. (Jeannette M, Goodreads.com)
Sometimes you want to hit the main character on the back of the head and tell him to stop being a wuss, but how would you react if you had to build a paradise controlled by some used-car-salesman-style gods? If you like quirky and surreal stories about the afterlife, then I would highly recommend Paradise. (Katie Webb, Goodreads.com)
What a great book! Loved the characters, the creativity, the dialogue, the imaginative idea of evil spirits keeping humans as pets …. a delightfully comic but definitely insightful look into the human psyche and soul. It’s a mark of a good book (for me, at least) when I look forward to picking it up again to read and am slow to put it down. I loved every aspect of it. (Susan Sutton, author)
An interview with Glenn Myers
Q. So what is this book like and what books do you like the most?
A. Off-beat, quirky. British humour I guess. About the afterlife or at least about near-death experiences and the soul.
Q. Why this subject?
A. We spend loads of time grooming our appearance, because that's what people see. But what are we like on the inside? If your soul was like a landscape, what would it look like? How would it change? What would be attacking it or wearing it down? I thought it would be a lot of fun to picture that.
Q. And you get to ask big questions?
A. I think the best comedy does. Life, death, love, redemption: all those, but handled lightly. I see comic fiction like a ridge walk on a mountain range -- scary drops each side, but a carefree stroll on the top.
Q. With two warring characters at the heart?
A. Three actually. The main protagonist Jamie is at war with Keziah the girl who crashed into him and so sent them both to the afterlife. If he's smug, laid-back and bone idle, she's spiky, focussed and driven. They just don't get on. There's no possible world, living or dead, where they could ever get on. Yet they have to work together. And hovering in the background is Jamie's ex-girlfriend Caroline, who he's completely failed to love and she's left him. So they're all struggling. They're all lost souls. And of course the stress of being dead, of your soul exposed, and of being experimented on by evil spirits, all that tends to crank up the conflict. So there's missed love and disappointment and secret goodness and slow discovery. Such wonderful fun to write!
Q. There’s a lot of food mentioned in the books: Afghan (murtabak), Indian (for example, roti prata), Singaporean Chinese (Hainanese Chicken Rice) and Malay (Mee Goreng, Laksa, Nasi Lemak). Have you eaten all these foods?
A. Yes. It’s import
