Months after the zombie outbreak that decimated the world’s population, Rose, Dakota, Erik and Ian embark on a routine supply run only for it to end in disaster. Ian is killed instantly. Erik, meanwhile, is scratched.
Unaware if such a wound will leave their companion helpless to the zombie virus, the party waits to see if Erik will succumb to infection. When he doesn’t, it seems too good to be true. But Erik isn’t out of the woods yet. With fever symptoms leaving him bedridden, it’s obvious that he’s going downhill—and fast. And only a chance communications with an infectious disease specialist in the capital offers their only chance of hope.
Scarlet Jane used to live an ordinary life. She was a straight-A student, a star basketball player, a loving and devoted daughter.
That changed the night her mother was murdered—not by a person, but by a monster.
After being hospitalized for what police, social workers and resident psychiatrists believe to be a form of shock, there seems to be little that Scarlet can do to move on with her life—that is, until a strange man in black enters her hospital room and claims that he can make all the horrible memories disappear. The only problem is: Scarlet doesn’t want to forget. She wants revenge. But what she doesn’t know is that revenge will lead her down a deadly path—one that will change her world forever.
Before there was mass violence in America, she was a university student in Liverpool.
Before her roommate was savagely attacked, she wanted to make the world a better place.
That was before the zombie outbreak.
Now, Rose and her best friend Lyra are forced to flee their flat and find refuge onboard a yacht with a group of armed survivors. Although safety seems likely on the open sea, it’s only a matter of time before a new outbreak occurs.
The unimaginable has occurred. After a showdown at the Winters’ Kaldr Ranch, the existence of the Supernatural world has been revealed to the entire world. Left at the mercy of their situation, Jason, Aerick and Guy flee to North America’s most prestigious Supernatural organization—the Agency—to take shelter and recover from the fallout that occurred on the ranch. It soon becomes apparent, however, that things will not be easy from here on out, and though their pasts have been altered to offer each man a clean slate, a Supernatural registry imposed by the United States government leaves every Supernatural being at the mercy of those who wish to discriminate against them, and Jason, Guy and Aerick as blatant targets of the Sanguine who still wish to exact their revenge.
After contracting a dangerous and mind-altering form of Lycanthropy, there seems to be little hope for Jason DePella. His lover, Guy Winters, a member of an ancient race of ice people, infects him with Kaldr magic, believing that the combined strains will allow Jason to maintain his humanity by living as a Wendigo.
They soon learn that the fabled Wendigo is nothing more than a myth. Instead, it’s slowly killing Jason from the inside out.
Jason’s only hope involves either perilous risk or unthinkable sacrifice. In order for Jason to possibly survive, he must venture into Howler territory to kill the man with lycanthropy or allow the man he loves to sacrifice his own life.
After being kicked out of college due to false claims of plagiarism, Jason’s life has taken a turn for the worse. Swamped with student loans and unable to pay rent, he is literally at his wit’s end when he meets Guy Winters. Everything about Guy is fascinating: his lifestyle, his appearance, his generosity. So when Jason faces potential homelessness, he agrees to move in, but it isn’t long before he realizes that Guy seems different. He’s vague about where he works, the temperature is always freezing in his home, and his touch renders Jason breathless beyond what any passion should.
After a home invasion leaves a man dead, a horrifying truth comes to life. Guy isn’t human, and another of his kind is in Austin, leaving trail of bodies in its wake that frames both men for murder. With Jason’s fingerprints in the apartment and a gunshot that will have sent the police department scrambling, there’s no time to explain. The only thing they can do is run.
Jason DePella has done what was previously thought impossible. By killing the leader of the Hill Country Howlers, he has potentially enabled two clans who have been at war for generations to unite under the same banner. Unfortunately, his new rule is not met without suspicion. As Howlers clash over the fact that a Kaldr now commands their pack, the Central Texas Sanguine are preparing an attack of their own—one that will ultimately shift the dynamics of the supernatural underworld.
My name is Luka Hawthorne, and I am an Incubus: otherwise known as the ultimate sexual predator. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t realize this until the night I accidentally killed someone, thereby changing my life forever.
Stricken with grief, and terrified that I will go to jail, I pack my bags with the intent to leave town when a mysterious stranger knocks on my door. Claiming to know not only who I am, but what I am, he offers me a choice: to seek asylum within an elite paranormal facility known as the Agency, or to go free and live my life on the run.
He claims that I can’t control my instincts—that I will only leave more bodies in my wake.
My only concern is if he will try to control me if I take his offer.

Filled with horror, fantasy, magical-realism and contemporary fiction, this short story collection promises to thrill and delight.
With a dwindling food supply, a lawless gang, and the encroaching dead threatening their existence, Dakota Travis and his best friend realize they may no longer be safe in their abandoned apartment building. They flee into the wasteland that was once South Dakota to find safety. There, they encounter the last remnants of the United States military and take shelter within a converted asylum. But their safety is anything but guaranteed. Now, surrounded by the undead, tensions run high between these two friends and the soldiers. Food is in short supply, and shelter may only be temporary. The commanding officer is quickly succumbing to insanity, while his right-hand men rule indiscriminately with iron fists. And once Corporal Jamie Marks begins to make advances, Dakota realizes the undead may be the least of his worries, especially amongst men who already hate him.
The day of man is over. The dawn of the dead has come.
He owned a big house, a great car, a Lamborghini, the things that mattered. For nursing student Jake Althaus, running into mega music producer Adrian Donovan seemed like a dream come true. They got along, had similar interests, great chemistry, aspired both to be working men. In time they shared everything. A home, a dog, a future—even an HIV-positive diagnosis that to some would damn them to a life of loneliness. But when a cancer diagnosis upends their lives and threatens to destroy the reality of their existence, they will soon come face-to-face with the greatest question ever:
The Hornblaris Mountains — home to the great Dwarven people — are a miraculous sight to behold, but beneath their towering peaks lie monstrous dangers. Carmen Delarosa, a travelling merchant’s daughter, has lived within the mountains and even travelled their passages her entire life without issue. But when a drake appears along a routine trading route and slaughters an entire caravan, including her family, Carmen vows to take justice into her own hands. Alone, in the Deep Roads, and with only her wits to guide her, Carmen will attempt the impossible: to hunt, and kill, the Drake of Ehknac.
After successfully hunting and slaying the Drake of Ehknac, Carmen returns home to the fanfare of thousands. Declared a hero by the mayor of Ehknac, word of her exploits quickly spreads, but it isn’t until a letter arrives from the king that Carmen realizes the extent of her fame. In this correspondence, he offers her the chance to join the King’s Watch: an elite organization of soldiers that not only protects him, but also his lands. The offer, while tempting, seems too good to be true; and not only will she have to journey to the capital of Dorenborough to audition, but survive on the way there.
Best friends since kindergarten, Adam and Christy have always been the perpetual outsiders in their small town in Texas. The other kids call Adam gay and Christy a witch.
On both counts the bullies are right.

The next day an alluring and mysterious boy enrolls at school and sets hearts aflutter, including Adam’s. Meanwhile, Christy’s mad crush on the handsome football player Ian seems to be going nowhere fast and her witch puberty is making her life miserable.
When a great evil arrives in town that threatens everything they hold dear, the best friends realize that finding a boyfriend is the least of their worries. Soon Adam and Christy will have to battle a force of darkness that has killed in their town before, and will again.
I never was afraid of monsters—at least, not until They came: the visitors from outer space.
Now They’re in our skies, on our streets, always watching, forever waiting.
At seventeen, I’m just about to graduate from the Juvenile Education System and declare my career of choice. The Midnight Guard—who protect our community from the vicious things that lie outside our walls—calls to me.
It’s hard, dangerous work, with grueling hours that offer little sleep, but it’s the one thing I know will help make a difference in our ever-changing world.
After attempting to negotiate peace only to be betrayed by the one woman who promised me everything, Asha, myself, and Commander Dubois’ daughter Mary-Anne are on the run. With nowhere to go but the outskirts of Austin, we flee to the wilds of Lago Vista, Texas in the hopes to find safety, but find only carnage in Their wake.
A full-scale assault on the planet Earth is beginning. Now in the middle of it all, we have only one choice: to join the revolution and fight for our planet’s safety.
After everything I’ve lost, I’m willing to lay my life on the line for Earth’s future. Even if I die trying.
I never expected to be abducted. But here I am, standing onboard Their ship, facing Them down for the first time in my life, seeing the true face of the Earth’s invaders from another world.
My task is simple: to act as Earth’s emissary and negotiate peace. But it is far more complicated than it seems. I know nothing of politics, and even little of persuasion, but I have no choice. I must do this to keep my friends, and my world, safe. I cannot afford to fail humanity.
