Axis of Evil (The Lone Star #1) – Bobby Akart
For decades, American administrations have forced our military to be neutered in many respects – hampered by restrained rules of engagement, passed in strength by Russia and China, and tested by rogue nations like North Korea and Iran. As a result, nuclear Armageddon hangs over us like a mighty sword.
Military analysts agree that the United States can’t start World War III. Why? We might lose. Sabers are rattling and the war of words escalate between America and her enemies, but the rhetoric has done little to stop the nuclear proliferation of North Korea and Iran. When the deep state, a close-knit group of powerful, influential people within our government challenges a new, untested President, things go awry.
The decisions made in the darkened rooms of Washington have a profound impact on ordinary Americans like the Armstrong family, Texas ranchers who spend their time making a living, but also preparing for the worst. As most of the family lives their life in Texas, one of them will unknowingly be the catalyst for World War III.
The Corrector (Javin Pierce Spy Thriller #1) – Ethan Jones
After a botched retrieval operation, Javin Pierce is sent in to complete the mission where others failed. But, before even getting started, Javin and his less-than-trusted partner, Claudia, must deal with a devious terrorist plot. Their search leads them to a flash drive containing scandals that could topple world governments and plunge Europe into absolute chaos if they do not retrieve it in time.
How will The Corrector fix this disastrous mission? Uncertain if they can even trust each other and unprepared for the shocking truth that could cost their lives, Javin and Claudia must stop the treasonous plot, retrieve the elusive drive, and save themselves and the entire European continent, all without leaving a trace . . .
The Corrector is the first in the brand-new adrenaline-drenched Javin Pierce spy thriller series. It is a heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat adventure for fans of Brad Thor, David Baldacci, and Tom Clancy.
The Dean Died Over Winter Break (Chronicles of Brother Thomas #1) – Christopher Lansdown
Dean Floden is dead!
Winter break is normally a peaceful time at the university, especially during a blizzard. So it shocked everyone when they found the dean murdered at his desk. Thanks to an empty campus, there are no witnesses and police have little to go on. With the police stymied, and hoping to wrap up the investigation before students return for the spring semester, the president of the university has turned to the Franciscan Brothers of Investigation for help.
Jovial and mild mannered Brother Francis arrived on the scene to find a jealous mistress, a clever drug dealer, a disappointed researcher, and a mortally insulted professor on his short list of suspects. Did one of them do the other three a huge favor? Or was it someone else entirely?
Levon’s War (Levon Cade #5) – Chuck Dixon
His word is his bond.
A promise made in the past takes Levon Cade from the hills of Alabama to the caliphate of ISIS.
The US Marine turned backwoods vigilante returns to the Iraqi desert on a mission of mercy that will take him to the heart of terror.
It will take all his skills, all his courage and all his will to survive the hell that Mosul has become.
It’s time for Levon’s War.
“Chuck Dixon’s prose is a perfect weld of muscular writing with razor edge wit and storytelling.”–Beau Smith, creator of Wynona Earp
Mr. Calamity (The Wild Adventures of Doc Savage #22) – Will Murray as Kenneth Robeson
Two new Doc Savage novels in one volume!
Prospecting in the Wyoming badlands, Patricia Savage spies a man swimming in circles—high in a cloudless sky! After he falls to his death, the dead swimmer is discovered soaked to the skin. Who is he? How did he manage to swim through thin air? These are the questions Pat sets out to answer when her cousin, the famous scientist-adventurer Doc Savage, diagnoses her account as a hallucination caused by altitude sickness. But when the bronze-skinned girl vanishes, the Man of Bronze is forced to take action. From the Bighorn Mountains to Devils Tower, Doc Savage and his mighty crew race against time to avert an impending tragedy created by a nebulous devil in human form who calls himself Mr. Calamity.
Plus, The Valley of Eternity. A letter from Doc Savage’s long-dead father thrusts the Man of Bronze into a personal quest that will change his life. And only Pat Savage can guide him.
Nekomonogatari White: Cat Tale (Monogatari #7) – NISIOISIN
Launching into new territory that the author hadn’t mapped out when he embarked on the series, NEKOMONOGATARI (White) tells the tale of heroine Tsubasa Hanekawa from her own perspective, in her own voice—if that can hold true for a damaged soul who, depending on who you’re asking, suffers from a split personality or a supernatural possession.
The bone-chilling brokenness of her household, where father and mother and daughter keep three separate sets of cookware in the same kitchen and only ever prepare their own meals, and the profound darkness nurtured in the genius schoolgirl’s heart, come to life, if that is the word, through her self-vivisection.
As for our customary unreliable narrator, Araragi, we seem to learn revealing tidbits about him now that we have an outside view of him at last.
Oblivion’s Grasp (Immortality and Chaos #5) – Eric T. Knight
The final battle has begun. The enemy is at the gates of Qarath. But the city’s two chief defenders are gone, trapped in the Pente Akka by the fell creature that rules the shadow world. Will they be able to escape before their life energy is drained and used to shred the veil that protects the world from the abyss?
With the doom of the world at hand, Netra must travel into the shattered prison in hopes of finding the key to defeating their immortal enemy. But when she gets there she realizes they’ve all been betrayed. Only a desperate last gamble has any chance of success.
“I suggest [the Immortality and Chaos series] to anyone that wants to enjoy danger, fear, laughter, love and heroism.”–Amazon Reader Review
Secret Stairs – presented by Silver Empire
You mustn’t talk about the stairs.
There they stand, surrounded by nothing but forest, pristine as the day they were built. No sign remains of any other structure around them, no ruins of long forgotten buildings. They look… wrong. They feel wrong. Bad things happen if you get too close. Horrible things.
You must never, ever ever talk about them.
Thirty-four of today’s best up and coming writers provide wonderfully unique interpretations inspired by the urban legends of the Internet age. Tales range from science fiction to fantasy, horror to mystery, and one writer even penned a romance!
But you must never tell anyone about the stairs!
Shadow (Seven Fold Sword #5) – Jonathan Moeller
Ridmark Arban is the Shield Knight, the defender of the realm of Andomhaim.
The realm is at peace after a long and terrible war, but dark powers threaten other lands. The quest of the Seven Swords has freed the shadows to prey upon mankind.
Ridmark has learned that the sorceress Cathala holds the secret of the Seven Swords, and quests to free her from the grasp of an imprisoning spell.
But the Maledicti priests know of Ridmark’s quest, and plot to stop him with a deadly new weapon.
For how can a knight fight the shadows in his mind?
