Grudging
by Michelle Hauck
Book one of the Birth of Saints trilogy (previously e-published in November)

The North has invaded, bringing a cruel religion and no mercy. The ciudades-estados who have stood in their way have been razed to nothing, and now the horde is before the gates of Colina Hermosa…demanding blood.

On a mission of desperation, a small group escapes the besieged city in search of the one thing that might stem the tide of Northerners: the witches of the southern swamps.

The Women of the Song.

But when tragedy strikes their negotiations, all that is left is a single untried knight and a witch who has never given voice to her power. And time is running out.

In Constant Fear
by Peter Liney

Over a year has passed since “Big Guy” Clancy and the ragged band of survivors managed to escape from the hellish reality of the City. Pursued by the ruthless leader of Infinity-the corporation behind the systematic extermination of thousands of “lower class” citizens-they’ve been on the run ever since, constantly looking over their shoulders.

Despite this, they have forged a new life working the land on an abandoned smallholding on the other side of the mountains. Hidden there, they are as close to happy as they can be.

But peace is short-lived. Strange things start to happen in the valley: too many unlucky coincidences convince them that another power is rising against them, and there are many questions to be answered: what is the shadow maker? And who-or what-has begun to howl in the night?

Megalodon Apocalypse
by Eric S. Brown

The rains came and washed away the world of man. The waters where to buy gabapentin cream covered the Earth. Everyday life became a struggle to stay alive for those who survived the floods. Pirates roamed the oceans, preying on the weak. Admiral Campbell’s vast armada and the massive platform city of Dry Dock became the last holdouts of civilization. While mankind continued to make war with itself, a new evil was growing. Beneath the waves, life mutated in the wake of the great flood, giving birth to the Megalodons, and now the final battle for dominion over the Earth has come.

Prime
by Bob Mayer and Deb Cavanaugh
Sequel to Burner

After the Chaos, mankind surrendered control to Dealer, a powerful computer that has kept society running for centuries. It helped mankind survive the phage. A virus that devolved human DNA into four groups with different lifespans, ranging from People with no Deathday, to burners with a median Deathday of 25. Except it’s all been a lie. Twins, Grace and Millay were separated on Dealing Day; one a burner, the other a People. They are the Prime, but in order to achieve their fate, they must be together. The Truce between Dealer and cyborgs is over. A new Chaos threatens. And Grace and Millay are the deciding factor. But first, they must figure out: what is the truth?

Secrets of the Conclave
by Beth Raymond

A power passed down through generations. A people hungry for freedom. The time for change has come.

Since its founding, the matriarchal society of Corinas has existed under the oppressive rule of the Masters of the Conclave, who use powerful child Adepts to aid in their governance. Rebellions have come and gone, but none have managed to displace the Conclave’s iron-fisted control.

Now, a new group of rebels hopes to succeed where others have failed. Nyona, a former Adept who only wanted to live her life free of the Conclave, is unwillingly thrust into the rebellion’s efforts when she finds a forbidden book containing the secrets to controlling her daughter’s Ability. Together with Mathis, a Guardsman who joined the rebellion after his parents’ execution, Nyona will help the rebels destroy the Conclave’s power—or die trying.
