Crescent Moon
 - James Fahy

Crescent Moon
What do you do when your world is turned upside down?

When you discover your father had a direct hand in the genocide of much of the world's human population?

Phoebe Harkness' life has changed forever. Thirty years after a cataclysmic world war that eviscerated one third of the human population, a new sub-species of vampire-like drones has set its teeth to the survivors of humanity.

They're not the only ones: 'Genetic Others' such as vampires, werewolves and more roam the streets of New Oxford, trying – and sometimes failing – to live peacefully amongst humankind.

But that is all about to change.

A spate of serial killings have occurred, rocking the already fragile ecosystem of New Oxford.

Brutal murders and mutilation are now commonplace.

Phoebe must get to work. She is named as liaison between the Genetic Others and the Cabal, the ruling order of the walled city.

She must negotiate with the Tribals, a subset of werewolves cast aside by the cultural hegemony of the Cabal.

But before she can make any progress with the Tribal leader, Kane, she learns of more murders – and three missing students. And Kane's daughter is among the missing...

One of the victims leaves a message in blood: 'Crescent Moon'.

Now Phoebe must act urgently with the help of Kane and her former paramour, vampire Allesandro to track down the culprit of these horrific killings.

But who is conducting all of these strange happenings behind the scenes?

And what does it have to do with the Crescent Moon...?

Crescent Moon is the gripping second installment of the urban gothic Phoebe Harkness series. It follows the young doctor as she stalks through the corrupt dystopia of New Oxford.

The Making of Gabriel Davenport - Beverly Lee

The Making of Gabriel Davenport
In a house built on truth, something lays hidden.

Beth and Stu Davenport moved to the English hillside town of Meadowford Bridge to give their young son, Gabriel, an idyllic, rural childhood. But in a single evening, the Davenports' dream is shattered by a hidden, ancient darkness—and their lives are forever changed.

Years later, Gabriel Davenport, now a capable, curious young man, makes the ill-fated decision to go looking for answers about his mysterious past. As soon as he begins his quest, his life becomes a place of shadows. The people he loves and trusts are acting abnormally. The strange woman who lives upstairs is even more haunted than usual. Even his most trusted friend seems to be hiding something.

As one fateful night deepens, and the line blurs between darkness and light, Gabriel must confront the terrible events that destroyed his family all those years ago. He is faced with a choice: continue living the life that was never his to begin with, or give himself over to a terrifying new reality more sinister than anything he's ever known.

The darkness is watching.

Jenna's Truth - Nadia L. King

What happens when the very group of teens you crave to belong to, end up being responsible for one of the most painful and humiliating events in your life?

Inspired by Amanda Todd's tragic story of bullying, Jenna's Truth is more than just teen short story it's a lesson in empathy, self-awareness, and speaking out about what matters, especially bullying. Jenna's Truth written by Nadia L.

Stella's Awakening - R.K. Ryde

Stella's Awakening
For Stella Welsch, buying a home and starting her own business has already pushed the boundaries of her strict upbringing. When she meets the sexy and powerful executive, Conrad Adams, Stella knows he's off limits, but can't help daydream about forbidden romance. As sparks begin to fly, Stella reveals that the relationship could have her cut off from her family and life as she knows it.

After painful memories surface, Stella decides to follow her heart and succumb to the sexy business mogul's pursuits. But she quickly discovers that her sheltered upbringing hasn't prepared her for what she is about to face. Her naïve knowledge of "sex" is nothing more than foreplay to the sexually experienced Conrad. As her feelings build, Stella must choose between Conrad and her family. Between rebellion and convention.

Stella's Awakening is the first installment in an erotic romance series that tackles difficult social issues. If you like EL James and Jodi Picoult, then you'll love this intriguing, sexy, and emotional rollercoaster of a book.

Beyond the Third End (The Midgard Born Series Book 1) - Juliet Boyd

Beyond the Third End
What happens when Ragnarok doesn't solve the problem?

In a world where Norse gods are revered by many, Siri and her younger brother have a fight on their hands. It's called survival. The gods have not been good to them, but Siri's not the type to let that stop her.

Kyr is a loner by nature, his only companion a wolf. People dislike him. He's pretty sure he knows why. If he wants to be himself, which is high on his priority list, he avoids them. Unless it's for his own amusement.

Their paths collide and their lives take a turn for the worse, but everything has a purpose.  One day, they'll understand the truth of their existence. That day is coming soon.

In Search of Hidden Gods (The Midgard Born Series Book 2) - Juliet Boyd

In Search of Hidden Gods
Knowing you're going to be reborn isn't always an advantage.

The endless discussions about which gods they might be are getting Kyr down. He wants out, but that would mean leaving Siri and Mo.

Siri is equally frustrated, but not for the same reason. Her belief system is being stretch to the limit.

Going on a quest to search for others of their kind probably isn't the best solution for either of them, but that's where they find themselves. Not an easy task. It seems the monsters of myth are all coming out of hiding at once.
