Echoes (The Epherium Chronicles #3) by T.D. Wilson

The battle for Cygni colony may be over, but for Captain James Hood and the crew of the EDF Armstrong, the battle for humanity's future has just begun. Hood's defense of the remote outpost against the Cilik'ti aliens was magnificent, but without the timely help of an unlikely ally—a splinter tribe of humanity's bitter enemies—the colony would have been lost and the Armstrong destroyed.

An uneasy peace has prevailed ever since. But as the humans prepare for a crucial meeting, a desperately needed Earth supply convoy is attacked under mysterious circumstances, with the lead escort cruiser's captain disappearing even more mysteriously.

The fate of all of Earth's new colonies hangs in the balance, and Hood is charged with protecting them against growing threats from all sides. When rebellion and unrest challenge the very leadership of the Earth Defense Forces, Hood may need to go it alone…and make the ultimate sacrifice.

Taken: The Viking Werewolf's Concubine 4 - Sci-fi New Release

Price: $.99
Kindle Unlimited: Free
Buy Link: Amazon 
Release Date: 6/22/15
Genres: Science Fiction, Paranormal Romance 


The horrors on Scorched just keep growing…
As captive mate to Rolf, one of the strongest werewolves on Scorched, Briony has known no freedom. But to her surprise, her role changes. Rolf expects her to play her part… in every single way possible. The price of her small piece of freedom is high, as more secrets from the harsh, unrelenting world of Scorched come to light.

Author Bio:

I’ve always had a fascination with vampires. My ideal man evolved from tall, dark, and sexy to tall, dark, and sexy with fangs. And so my fantasy was born.
My first release is Taken: The Vampire’s Concubine (Part One). If you like a safe and neat series, this is not for you. Taken is very dark in nature, with strong sexual themes, dangerous situations, and Gothic undertones throughout it. When you open the pages to my series, you’re stepping into a world ruled by beings that survive on blood. There’s nothing safe about that.
The year is 2050, and Keely has just been abducted from her home in small-town USA. Blindfolded and bound, she is taken into outer space and delivered into a world with three moons and no sun. Almost immediately, she discovers her fate. Due to a rare blood factor she’s been taken and now she’s expected to select a male vampire mate and breed.
The attraction between her and her guard is instantaneous, but where can it lead? Now a concubine, Keely is taken for her grooming. The market is quickly approaching, her future dark and uncertain. She’s destined to be a vampire’s concubine, but which one will she pick?

Genres: Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy
Free with Kindle Unlimited

Book Three, The Endurers

Who knew the priest could be such a bad boy?

Peter Rynalt is every woman's sinful dream. The other Endurers might call him a priest, but there's nothing saintly about his seductive desires. He gets what he wants, but he sticks to one cardinal rule... he never goes back.

Kim Jones hasn't forgotten Peter since the night she made a play for him. He's the one man in New Orleans that she can't have. She doesn't think she'll see him again, but one night he rescues her from a demonic attack, and the heat between them can no longer be denied.

Demons are roaming the streets of New Orleans. To survive, Kim will have to remain with Peter, but it comes at a price. She'll have to pay for her protection with her heart...

About the Series:

Once upon a time, the world was just a black void. Then one day man came, but he wasn't alone. He was followed by an ancient evil, a scourge determined to steal his soul. Centuries passed. Humanity did all it could to protect itself against the evil ones, but they weren't equipped to fight this battle. Instead, all they could do was pray that Hell didn't set its eyes upon them.

It got to be too much. Something had to be done.

Born out of desperate need, warriors were chosen. Immortality was granted to those strong enough to fight the battle that would never end. No longer mortal, these men have stood in the path of dark and horrifying evil, bearing the load when there was nobody else that could.

It's all coming to an end. Time has ran out for humanity...

“Why in the hell are you so damn thin? Are you sick, or have you been dieting?” He spat the last word out at her, as she pulled the towel free from her hair to comb through the silky strands.

He suspected it was the latter, and he couldn't understand why women were so obsessed with it. She was so damned beautiful, exuding a raw sexuality that was making the caveman in him roar to life. Desperately he fought the sensual weave she was unconsciously weaving, but it was a battle he was losing fast.

“You look like death, and you're way too slender. You're lucky to still be alive.”

She narrowed her eyes at him, as a look of irritation and something unidentifiable flickered across her face. Her arms crossed across her chest before she briefly looked away, her cheeks pink. When she turned back to him, she was completely in control.

“Get laid much, Peter? If that's your approach, I'm surprised you aren't a virgin. My weight isn't any of your business, so butt out. Besides, men love my body.”

About the Author:
I've often been asked how I'm inspired to write about werewolves, immortals, and zombies. The answer is easy. I adore them.

Be it the Wolf Town Guardians or the Endurers, these characters have been a joy to write about. And why not? What woman wouldn't love a sexy immortal male or a long-lived werewolf that is destined to have them?

Not all of my books contain plus-sized heroines, but many of them do. I believe in true love and true love isn't based on a size tag. If you agree with this, I think you will enjoy my books.

Featured Book & Giveaway: Jagannath by Kerry Alan Denney + Interview

Virtual Book Tour Dates: 2/9/15 – 3/9/15
Genres: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Supernatural, Paranormal, Post-Apocalyptic, Suspense, Thriller, Action/Adventure, TEOTWAWKI

The monster from your nightmares is here. It’s destroying civilization. Soon the human race will be extinct.
The year is 2037, and Corporal Kimi Jayden has one chance to rescue the lone refugee girl who is miraculously immune to Reaper absorption. Twelve-year-old Lily walks the deserted streets of Savannah alone, ever since the Reaper absorbed her family—and tried and failed to absorb her—a year ago. An amorphous creature that has nearly wiped out civilization, growing as it feeds, the Reaper assimilates its prey’s intelligence when it consumes flesh and blood. Growing smarter with each human it absorbs, the Reaper transforms into monsters created from our darkest nightmares—and it loves tormenting its victims.
Kimi and her fellow survivors in the North Georgia Renegade Enclave believe Lily’s DNA holds the key to mankind’s survival. But the Reaper covets and abducts Lily, and Kimi must battle a ghastly horde of Reaper incarnations to preserve humanity’s last hope against extinction.
JAGANNATH reveals the resilience and determination of the human spirit in an action-filled tale of terror, selfless courage, and ultimate triumph and redemption.

What an exciting story and non-stop action! Set twenty years in the future, JAGANNATH is about a monster from the depths of the ocean, awakened by its hunger and its need to feed… and it feeds on humans. After devouring more than half of the world’s population, it has grown to epic proportions and is seemingly unstoppable. There is one remaining chance: a little girl named Lily. Hop aboard for a thrilling adventure!” – Deborah D. Moore, bestselling author of The Journal: Cracked Earth and The Journal: Ash Fall

Jagannath is a hair-raising, fantastic, adventurous ride. Brilliant, amazing, and impossible to put down. A must-read for all sci-fi/ horror fans. Highly recommended!” – Lynda Fitzgerald, critically acclaimed author of If Truth Be Told, Of Words & Music, and the LIVE mystery series.

Interview with Jason Riley, son of Lieutenant Scott Riley and 

hero of JAGANNATH:

For my final human interview, I squeezed in a few moments with fourteen-year-old Jason Riley, son of the recently deceased—absorbed, I suppose I should say—Lieutenant Scott Riley, Commander of the first failed Search & Rescue mission to retrieve Lily, the teenage refugee girl who is miraculously immune to Reaper absorption. I caught Jason hurrying through the halls of the North Georgia Renegade Enclave wearing a courier badge with the name smeared and illegible, and carrying a suspicious-looking silver case. Jason is a decent looking kid with the dark tousled hair and handsome facial features of his father, and the deep blue penetrating and mischievous eyes of his mother. He looks nervous when I stop him, his eyes darting up and down the corridor as if he’s afraid the Reaper’s about to sneak up on him from behind and take a bite out of his ass. Here’s the interview:

The Reality Bender: Hey, Jason. You got a few seconds to answer some questions?

Jason: Questions? What questions? I’m not doing anything. I mean, not anything I’m not supposed to be doing. (he laughs as he stutters) Did Colonel McHardass... uhh, I mean Colonel McRae send you?

TRB: Huh? No, nobody sent me. I’m just doing some interviews—

Jason: Nothing. I mean, cool. I’m kinda in a hurry.

TRB: Looks like you drew the short straw and got courier duty. What’s in the case?

Jason: What makes you think anything’s in the case? I didn’t put anything in it. I’m just a courier, yeah. I can’t even open the case. That’s against the rules, and I never do anything against the rules. Not me. I’m gonna be a soldier, and all soldiers are honorable and obey orders.

TRB: Okay, okay... I’m just curious, that’s all. It looks important.

Jason (laughs again): Yeah. No, I mean I don’t know if it is or not. I’m supposed to deliver it to Innie. I mean Dr. Khamir. His daughter Innoye, that is. She’s a doctor too. Or a scientist, really.

TRB: That’s cool, no worries. You look a little nervous. Anything I should know about?

Jason: Dude, I just told you: I’m just a courier. They never tell me anything.

TRB: I see. Jason, what’s that poking out of your belt?

Jason (tugs his shirt down over his belt): Nothing. I can’t carry guns. I mean, at least not until I’m officially a soldier. I don’t know why you’d think that’s what it is.

TRB: I didn’t say anything about a—

Jason (leaning closer and whispering): Look, dude, you could get me in a hell of a lot of trouble here, okay? You have no idea how important my mission is. If you screw it up for us, you could blow our chances of finding out all kinds of important stuff about that mutant piece of extraterrestrial elephant snot that we’ll never find out otherwise.

TRB: I assume you’re talking about the Reaper?

Jason: No, I’m talking about your grandmother, dipwad. Duh. Of course I’m talking about the Reaper. Did you fall off a hovercycle without a helmet and land on your head recently, or were you always this retarded?

TRB: You’re a feisty little guy, aren’t you?

Jason: Little? Listen, buddy, I’m gonna be a soldier soon. So maybe you oughta start showing a little respect. We’re the ones who protect assholes like you from that slimy pile of cosmic monkey jism.

TRB: Okay, sorry. No offense intended. I’m just wondering what’s in the case that’s got you so jumpy.

Jason: If you knew, then you’d leave me alone and keep your mouth shut, and let me do my job. I’m not supposed to tell anybody this, but Innie—Dr. Khamir, not her father the doctor, but Dr. Innoye Khamir—invented this radically dazz new gel compound that can capture pieces of the Reaper, and we’re going on a mission to test it out. You have no idea how smart she is. She’s beyond a genius, dude. If you try to stop us, you could ruin everything for, like, all of humanity. We’re going to bring back samples of that slimy piece of shit so we can study it, and find out its weaknesses. I don’t wanna have to, but I swear I’ll shoot you if you try to stop us.

TRB: Uh-huh. Shoot me with that gun you don’t have tucked under your belt, you mean?

Jason (rolling his eyes): Just shut up already. God, you press jerkwads are all the same. Think about this: That slimy shape-shifting pile of shit killed my mother last year, and it just killed my father yesterday. It killed Innie’s brother and mother when she escaped from Atlanta while everything was on fire. We got payback coming. Me and Innie are gonna take that slimy bitch-ass fucker down, and Kimi is too, and we don’t need asswipes like you standing in our way.

TRB: I have no intentions of standing in your way. I just wanted to get the inside story for all our newsflash readers and subscribers—

Jason: Yeah, that’s all it is to you, isn’t it, buddy? Just a damn story. It won’t be real to you until that ungodly monster takes your family from you, and then sneaks up on you and absorbs your ass too. And all of a sudden you’re stuck inside it watching it destroy everything and everybody you’ve ever loved, and you can’t do a god damn thing to stop it because you’re part of its hive mind, along with every other unlucky idiot who didn’t run away and join the Enclaves in time. You and your journalist pals have never been on the front lines, giving your lives to save humanity like my mother and father did. You just sit behind your cameras and smile while that piece of shit destroys the whole damn world. So get out of my damn way before I shoot your ass, and you get to watch the end of the world from the infirmary in your comfortable private room bed on your stupid private live-feed flatscreen. I hope you can sleep while you wait. Because it’s coming for you, dude. Sooner or later, unless me and Kimi and Innie and the soldiers trying to save your asses stop it. So move, and keep your damn mouth shut.

TRB: You got it, Jason. For what it’s worth, I wish you and Innie and Kimi the best of—

Jason (flipping me a bird as he hurries away): Go fuck yourself, Mr. Reporter Man.

So much like Kimi he doesn’t even know. I hope like hell his and Innie’s so-called mission is successful. I don’t want to end up a Reaper snack...

A tentacle as thick as a railroad tie burst out of the gap in the crumbling wall. The sinuous limb shot toward the Renegade soldier like a giant compressed spring releasing. Before the soldier could aim his flamethrower at it, the tentacle coiled around him and squeezed.
He shouted for backup, and two soldiers raced toward him. They aimed their wrist-mounted nozzles at the transforming tentacle. Tight streams of blue gel spurted toward the creature’s extended limb, but the soldiers fired too late. The tentacle seeped under the soldier’s visor and touched bare skin, and the Reaper began to absorb him.
Kimi scowled, studying the holographic video of the battle against the Reaper in the dead city of Savannah, Georgia. Safe within the War Room of the North Georgia Renegade Enclave, she had a bird’s-eye view of the chaos and destruction from two days ago. The scene stoked an ever-smoldering fire inside her.
The Reaper had killed her whole family fifteen years ago, one day before her thirteenth birthday. She had hidden, helpless to stop the creature as it consumed them. The loss left a gaping wound inside her that only vengeance could heal.
Her shoulders tensed as she remembered watching her hometown of Jasper, Georgia burn. The raging flames had surrounded her as everyone she knew and loved was absorbed. The Renegade soldiers who came to rescue the survivors were too late to save anyone but her.
Kimi was an orphan in the truest and bloodiest sense of the word.
Joining the Renegades was inevitable. She signed up two years after her rescue at the lawfully acceptable age of fifteen. Ever since that day, she wore the red, blue, and orange insignia of blood, life, and flame with honor and pride.
Though the holo-vid was painful to watch, Kimi’s duty was to observe and learn. She kept her eyes on the soldier, knowing he would respond with the only avenue of escape he had left.
“Fall back!” the soldier called to his buddies. “I’m hitting the fail-safe!”
His voice was loud and close through the War Room’s speakers. He was doomed, but he didn’t cry out as the Reaper soaked up the skin on his neck and jaw. The creature’s pseudo-flesh shifted shape, forming a cocoon around him. But the soldier popped off the cap covering the recessed red button on his hand-grip control before he was immobilized.
Not for the first time—or the last—Kimi wondered why they didn’t call the fail-safe button by its true name: a suicide switch.
The two standing soldiers trained their flamethrower nozzles on the creature as they backed away. Tight streams of fire shot out and ignited the Reaper’s viscous muck, too late to save the dying soldier. But the flames started frying the isolated portion of the creature into yellow smoke and charcoal gray ash.
The doomed soldier pressed the red button, and the potent explosives in his helmet and body armor did their job. The force of the blast made creature-gook spray outward in all directions—along with various body parts.
Kimi gritted her teeth. Had the soldier pressed the suicide switch in time, or did the creature absorb his brain before he died?
When the Reaper rose up out of the oceans’ depths and came ashore sixteen years ago, it seemed like nothing more than an amorphous sludge with the limited intelligence of the aquatic mammals it ingested, a creature of transforming slime that imitated living organisms. It separated into portions like a deploying army, and quickly developed a ravenous appetite for human flesh and blood. But when it began metamorphosing into human form and mimicking people, the evidence was conclusive: the creature was growing smarter, accumulating knowledge with each person it consumed.
The Reaper was not only feeding on their flesh and blood; it was absorbing their minds, and assimilating their intelligence.
And it grew as it fed.
Kimi’s scowl deepened as she watched the holo-vid. She still heard her mother, father, and little sister’s screams, heard them even in her dreams. Being assigned to fly in the follow-up search-and-rescue mission with the eleven other Renegades gathered in the War Room had her stoked.

King of Ash and Bone by Melissa Wright

We're Blitzing the Release of
King of Ash and Bone
By Melissa Wright
The first book in The Shattered Realms Series.

Writing a book or series of books is a substantial commitment. Authors spend a lot of time and effort avoiding the temptation of shiny new ideas, because chasing other stories will never get you a finished manuscript. But the best inspirations hang around, waiting in the corners of your mind, tugging at your attention until they've grown too monstrous and delightful to be ignored. These are the stories that are most fun to tell, the ideas that will not be turned away.

I'm happy to report my newest title is just one of these monsters. King of Ash and Bone began niggling at me about midway through the Descendants Series as a simple idea: a magical apocalypse. A heroine with steadfast determination came in next, followed quickly by the handsome anti-hero who just might have what it takes to break her resolve. And of course he would have something to hide that might test them both. I found myself researching end-of-days scenarios in my spare time, gathering images of winged beasts and deserted cities as this new world grew and grew, forming its own brand of chimera and bursting into a second realm, complete with problems of its own.

The Shattered Realms series is certainly lined up to be the most complex I've ever written, and I can only hope it catches readers' hearts and imaginations the way it has mine.

Her brother has been taken, her future has vanished, and all that remains is a desperate need for revenge. After discovering the breach the creatures used as a gateway, Mackenzie devises a plan to stop them, whatever the cost.

When she finds an injured stranger in the street, he just might be the key she needs to succeed. What Mackenzie doesn't know is that this stranger isn't the helpless boy he appears to be. He's one of the monsters. And he's got plans of his own.

Thrown into a dying city in another realm, Mackenzie is powerless to get back. With the gateway closing, time is not on her side. But the stranger is, and if they can escape execution, this girl and her monster might be able to save both their worlds.
