"The perfect culmination of jaw breaking action and political intrigue from DJ Molles. Readers will certainly find his newest thriller to be as chilling as it is exciting."
--Nicholas Sansbury Smith USA Today bestselling author of Hell Divers

Keep your head down. Do what you’re told. It’s easier that way.

Walter Lawrence Baucom is used to the troops that patrol Agrarian District 89. He grew up with the sight of Chinese and Russian soldiers, right alongside the American ones. They are the Coalition. “The Three Brothers,” they call themselves. They claim that they are there to help. And he thinks that if he doesn’t rock the boat, then they will never have a reason to break in his door and disappear him, like they did to his brother.

But when a Chinese captain is kidnapped by resistance members, Walter is suddenly thrust into a fight he never wanted. A fight where there are many sides, but very few allies. As things in District 89 quickly spiral out of control and the borders are closed by Coalition troops, Walter will have to make a decision: What is he willing to fight for?

His life? His freedom?

His family?

Onine is the only Kyprian who knows his species' ultimate truth, and he fears for El. From the moment he sees her, a slave at the Bathing Temple, he wants to save her. But the only way for him to do so is to give up his beauty, forego his fire, and become clay like her. An easy task if it were as simple as him changing his form. Unfortunately, she is the one who must be transformed and become Kyprian like him.

“ … a melody of words, singing off the page ... intellectually and poetically written, and a most fantastical piece of metamorphic fantasy ... another fabulous read from a brilliant author.” ~ William Bitner

“Ambroziak’s writing style is hauntingly smooth, melodic, and slightly sensual … this is a story which, once read, will ingrain itself into the memory and might leave you questioning the validity of your core beliefs.” ~ L. F. Falconer

“… a rare excellent read … I predict it is going to be a huge hit with fans of the genre.” ~ Reader’s Favorite

Nadia's Tears (Devya's Children Book 2)
by Julie C Gilbert
$0.00, 298 pages, 4.5 out of 5.0 (22 reviews), #26 in > Teen & Young Adult > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction
How far would you go to save someone you love?

While learning to use her Dream Shaper Gift, Jillian Blairington met a sister named Nadia who has the power to speak inside one’s mind. Jillian’s grown rather fond of her.

Now, she’s gone silent.

Jillian turns to her friend, Danielle Matheson, and together they hatch a crazy plan to get Jillian to Nadia’s side so she can awaken her from the coma.

Meanwhile, Danielle tries to keep a friend out of trouble with human traffickers.

If Jillian can’t solve the mystery of Nadia’s coma quickly, she may lose both her sister and her friend.


Interview with the Author:
Q: What makes the Devya’s Children series special?
A: At the heart, this series is about family and friendship as well as the ethical questions surrounding genetic engineering. It’s been likened to the Orphan Black TV show. I like to think of it as a more family-friendly take on those themes. The premise is that a brilliant scientist and his team created several genetically altered children who have special Gifts, such as telepathy, healing, and dream shaping.

The journal/letters style is not unique to this series, but I believe ultimately it suits my need to get in these people’s heads. I’ve worked very hard to fill the books with relatable characters. Some of them happen to have superpowers, but as Jillian points out, everybody has gifts, if not Gifts. It’s just a matter of finding out what those gifts are and how they can be applied for the good of the world.

Q: What order should I read them in?
A: I suggest the traditional order of:
- Ashlynn’s Dreams
- Nadia’s Tears
- Malia’s Miracles
- Varick’s Quest
… before jumping into the prequel—The Dark Side of Science—or the Ashlynn’s Dreams Shorts.

The prequel and the short stories can certainly be read as standalones, but they may be more enjoyable once the reader’s already familiar with some of the characters.

Q: Where does this book fit in the series? What theme(s) make it special?
A: Nadia’s Tears continues where Ashlynn’s Dreams left off. The premise is that Nadia’s fallen into a coma and Jillian may be the only person capable of waking her. Themes of love and loyalty pop up. Jillian doesn’t have to help, but she wants to be there for her sister.

Human trafficking also becomes a theme in this book. Years ago, one of my students mentioned that human trafficking still exists in the world. I was absolutely shocked, so I did some research to confirm this. That was right before the summer I wrote this book, so a lot of the research seeped into the storyline.

We get to learn a little more about Nadia’s character. She’s got the ability to read minds and plan things on very large scales. It makes sense that she’d be aware of the huge problem human trafficking poses and have a deep, burning desire to change things.

Q: Can the reader get the whole series at once?
A: Readers can grab books 1-3 in a combination. I’ve not bundled in Book 4 yet, but hop on over to my amazon author page or website to get plugged in and keep up with the current promos.

The 28th Gate: Volume 1
Season 1, Episodes 1-6

With a stolen experimental starship and a pair of advanced synthetic limbs, Hunter isn't an average bounty hunter.

When he accepted the job on a backwater planet, Hunter thought it would be easy. He and his partner just had to track down a missing researcher. But when they find her, she's fled a quarter of the way around the massive 27-gate network and Hunter realizes all is not as he was told.
That simple realization, and Hunter's drive for retribution, kick off a series of adventures leading to the most important discovery since the fall of the Gate Age-and put him in direct confrontation with the corp he's been running from for the past 10 revolutions.

Set in a far distant future, The 28th Gate is a series of 36 novelettes, spread across three seasons, telling the story of Hunter's struggles against the AAA corporation that created him. Each episodic novelette has the action, character, and plotting of a complete story all crammed into an espresso-like package, with each season chronicling a different arc in the overall epic.

Whom God Would Destroy
by Commander Pants
$0.00, 316 pages, 3.9 out of 5.0 (33 reviews), #6 in > Religion & Spirituality > Christian Books & Bibles > Bible Study & Reference > Criticism & Interpretation
It's 1987, and "God" has returned to Earth to goof on humanity once more. Equipped with a new message and a bell that makes people happy, he opens up a new age store, ready to have some fun. Fortunately, things don't turn out quite like He'd planned.

Luke Rhinehart, author of the cult classic, "The Dice Man," called "Whom God Would Destroy," “a wonderful novel, with an original comic vision and style that had me laughing aloud.”

Whom God Would Destroy is a thought provoking novel about God, insanity, Big Macs, space aliens and the search for the Ultimate Orgasm...but mostly it's about taking reality with a pillar of salt.

Miri, a powerful Striga and the chosen protector of her village by the Great Silt Sea, is sworn to defend her people against attacks by raiders and monsters. But when a mysterious young boy is found near the wastes, her once familiar world shatters, and she and her allies must journey across an unforgiving planet in order to unravel a mystery surrounding the extinction of the Gorgons—one that could change everything they thought they knew.

"This is it. It's time to run. It's time to live."

It all started with a virus four years ago. It unlocked a world of pure make-believe. It drove us down to our knees, and what we all believed to be pure genuine fiction escaped into the world - a nightmarish fairytale of vivid nightmares made of flesh and blood.
It didn’t take long for our world to go down in flames. Cities decimated. Family and beloved friend’s dead. Our society became dominated with howls, screams, bloodshed, and destruction. Blame rested on our heads for this global carnage. Yeah, we were at fault for it.


A new society was born from the ashes of our own destruction - Lykens. Some humans chose to live within the territories, others within their own communities. Some run.
I’m Nikki. I’m Eighteen years old. And this is my story.
