Alpha Arcana
by Will Farrar

What if you woke up one morning and your entire world had transformed itself? How would you and your family adapt? How would society rebuild itself or would it? The year was 2004 when the Cataclysm disabled every man made electronic and mechanical device and replaced them with magic and enchantments. This is a story about a Georgian family, the Farthars, ten years after the Cataclysm. They and families like them have learned to adapt to this new wondrous world. Not only has magic returned, but also the creatures of legend and folklore have appeared to prey on mankind. The Farthars had adapted to these too, using their magical abilities, but nothing could prepare them for the interdimensional creatures invading their world. The family realizes that they must stop these monsters before they destroy everything that the Farthars hold dear, and in the process, find their destiny. It is a tale about family, loyalty, betrayal, and forgiveness. It is also about humanity’s amazing ability to adapt to a new hostile environment.

BEYOND: TWO SUNS
by
Maureen A. Miller

DescriptionBEYOND Series Book 2

They were coming. It wasn't so much the sound that revealed them. It was the subtle vibration of the ground beneath his feet, like the percussion of a distant explosion. It was their march. The dead tread of stone against sand. A ghostly gait of menace.

Alone in a desert world...a world he once called home, Zak is now a damaged man. Reckless in his battle against the creatures that destroyed his family, he roams under the glare of the two suns, seeing phantoms--seeing Aimee.

Five years had passed since Aimee Patterson left the man she loved. For five long years she traveled the path of life, always waiting--always looking to the stars, knowing, hoping, that one day he would return for her.

And today was that day...

But then he witnesses a gangland killing and has to go on the run as he is next on the killer's list.

Follow Darren's perilous but often hilarious journey as he blazes a trail through Co.
