Dragonskull: Shield of the Knight – Jonathan Moeller

Dark magic hunts a young knight.

Gareth Arban is now a knight of the Northerland, riding to escort his friend Prince Tywall to the High King’s seat of Tarlion.

But the spider priestesses who rule the Heptarchy have not forgotten their hatred towards Tywall and will stop at nothing to assassinate him.

It will take all of Gareth’s courage and skill to protect his friend.

But what Gareth hasn’t realized is that the dark power is coming for him…

Excess (Monster Punk Horizon #3) – H. P. Holo and Jacob Holo

Losing a trusty weapon is like losing a close friend, and Pix’s beloved capacitor blade is on its last legs.

Fortunately, she has a plan to craft a new, even better weapon. Unfortunately, her plan involves hunting down a vicious migrating monster that has more teeth than some hunters have brain cells. Even worse, this new creature has riled up the apex monster of Skull Harbor, and both of them are spoiling for a fight.

But Pix has one thing they don’t: a party foolhardy enough to take them both on.

She’ll need all the help she can get, because it’ll take all their combined luck, skill, and oversized weapons to put down these two monsters. But her friends have her back. After all, there’s awesome loot to be had!

If they manage to survive…

Legends Rise (Ember War: The Ibarra Crusade #5) -Richard Fox

The Ember War comes to its epic conclusion!

The Ibarra Nation launches a final assault to liberate Earth, but the Geist have laid a trap for Ely Hale and the Crusade. The Geist are on the cusp of releasing their dark god Malal onto the galaxy, ensuring doom for every soldier, Armor and sailor fighting for their very souls.

Ely Hale is the fulcrum on which the battle will turn. He is one soldier against a dark tide but he is not alone, for the Saint Lives.

Legends Rise is the finale to the long running military science fiction series, a must read for every fan of battling space fleets and heroic space Marines. Space opera at its finest!

A Necessary Heresy (Instrument of Omens #3) – Davis Ashura

Prophesized heroes are reborn. The burden they bear is as terrible as it is necessary.

The dead city of Mahadev. In three thousand years, none who have entered those ageless walls have returned to bear word of what evil lurks within. And yet it is there that Cinder and Anya must journey. A hard road with mysteries and dangers abounding.

And the greatest of those perils is imprisoned within the ruined temple at the very center of the necropolis’ dark heart. There, Cinder and Anya are given insight into the terrifying truth the world faces. It is an evil so vast that even the dark god, Shet, must bow before its will. It is the bringer of apocalypse, the ender of civilizations. If ever freed, the world will be helpless before its horrific power.

Forging an alliance all would have rather avoided, Cinder and Anya have no choice but to work with Shet to take on this greater enemy. Worse, it is a pact that will see them give away that which they hold most precious…

The Returned Dragon (Cycle of Dragons #6) – D. K. Holmberg

Ashan must find strength from more than his cycle to stop the king.

Ashan has saved his homeland, but the threat from the king—along with Ashan’s mentor—remains. The price for saving Berestal was high. His once recovered brother is now debilitated again, while his sister struggles to connect to Affelah, leaving Ashan to wonder what path he should take.

When the king threatens the Wilds, Ashan must discover the truth of a land long ignored, as it might be the key to stopping the king and the spread of the dangerous power of the murtar. He must discover more than the cycle of dragons and the power of Affelah to find the power of the true Servant before all is lost.

An action packed fantasy adventure that concludes the saga of The Cycle of Dragons.

Trial By Fire (The Destroyer #155) – James Mullaney with Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir

When you’re on death row, minutes from the electric chair, and a hook-handed monk offers to save your life if you’ll just swallow a simple little pill… what’ve you got to lose? You take the pill. Then you wake up, officially “dead,” in the back of an ambulance, headed for an undisclosed location. Welcome to your new life, working for CURE, the most secret, most deniable, most extra-judicial government agency ever to exist. Only the President knows about it, and even he doesn’t control it.

That’s what happened to Remo Williams, a New Jersey cop framed for a murder he didn’t commit. Framed by the very people who saved him, in fact. And now, trained in esoteric martial arts by Chiun, master of Sinanju, he’s going to become the ultimate killing machine. Remo will be America’s last line of defense against mad scientists, organized crime, ancient undead gods, and anything else that threatens the Constitution. Remo Williams is the Destroyer.

Global catastrophes make headlines, so a financially floundering New York newspaper publisher has a plan to make a bundle while old allies and militants unite. But is it political or personal? Neutralizing a toxic chemical that will pollute the planet, sell papers and hold the world hostage is all in a day’s work for Remo and Chiun. CURE faces one of its toughest challenges as an international crisis could cause World War III or the death of a planet.

Viridian Gate Online: Empirical Endgame (The Viridian Gate Archives #8) – James Hunter

The Darkling City has fallen, but its final Stronghold remains.

With the Reality Editor in hand, Jack thought the assault on Skalahólt would be a short victorious war, but his army has been stopped cold, and worse, someone close to him has been taken by the Overmind of Death. Every second counts if Jack wants her back alive, but to even have a chance, he’ll have to leave his troops behind and dive into Thanatos’s twisted game within a game.

Stranded behind enemy lines with only one shot at victory, Jack is faced with seemingly impossible challenges that will require him to think outside himself, to change, and even to lose. But as the puzzles take a new turn and the other Overminds finally reveal their hands, it soon becomes clear that more than just this battle or even the war is at stake. Eldgard’s future is being written in Jack’s every action and word, and the Travelers may not have a place in it…
