Our World Is No Longer Ours… It’s Theirs.
The human survivors lead a hardscrabble life, scavenging what they can from the dead city, waiting and watching. Cedes isn’t like Matthew and his regulars. She dreams. She talks. She questions. She wonders why Luke disappeared, where Luke disappeared to. She wants to know what we are to the machines. This is her story. This is our story. This is the story of us, the humans who survive.
In the ruins of our world, a new order arose, an order controlled by the very machines humankind created. The end for us came not from a massive global war but from something unthinkable, incomprehensible. The machines simply replaced us and we let them, and so, in the end, humanity went out not with a bang, but with a whimper. No shots fired. No bombs dropped. No cities destroyed. We ended and the machines began–or at least that is what the few human survivors of the machine apocalypse believe.
“I know what you are now.” These words, whispered into the ear of a beast wearing the skin of a human boy as he lay dying in an deserted moonlit parking lot.
Stella – A young woman learning to be a killer, who smells evil hiding inside of ordinary seeming men. Is she developing an unhealthy taste for blood?
Jilly – A teenage orphan trying to find her past who has the power to alter reality, a power which is already causing fractures, tears in the fabric that holds the world together.
The Third – As yet unknown, yet crucial to the survival of the species that is Man…
Adamel – A mysterious being from an alternate dimension, sent to prepare for the coming apocalypse.
Long ago there were Three, all identical, all tasked with guarding the very fate of mankind. Destined to be reborn again and again, their strange powers buried deep within their subconscious, to be kindled when beasts walk upon the earth as men.
That time is now.
Mary Howard is a failed writer. She is also rich, clumsy, a virgin, and she can see dead people – a gift that she believes is a curse. A visit from a recently murdered spirit starts a sequence of events that means that Mary can no longer ignore the ghosts that taunt her. She finds herself surrounded by spirits, ghosts, and ghouls, the jet-setting types that she despises, a handsome detective inspector who sends her senses soaring and her temper flaring, and above all of this, her life is in danger! Can Mary come to terms with the gift of being a medium before time runs out and more dead bodies are found?
Abduction. Genetic Transformation. Terrifying abilities she never wanted. Abilities she can’t control.
Now Emily Heart has lost everything and is living on the street, fighting a daily battle to stay alive in Glassford Park.
But Emily’s problems don’t end there. The slightest burst of emotion can send her randomly jumping across time and space, arriving naked and afraid.
Emily doesn’t quite know what she is, or what she’s capable of, but she knows what she can’t afford to do — feel anything.
And she can’t afford to make any mistakes.
A gang wants to kill her;
A cop wants to arrest her;
A reporter wants to expose her;
A group wants to experiment on her;
A young man wants to love her;
An affliction wants to consume her;
Emily just wants her old life back.
Get prepared for what readers are calling “a thrilling, non-stop ride that you won’t be able to put down.”
Until the End of the World (Until the End of the World #1) , by Sarah Lyons Fleming
Cassie Forrest isn’t surprised to learn that the day she’s decided to get her life together is also the day the world ends. After all, she’s been on a self-imposed losing streak since her survivalist parents died: she’s stopped painting, broken off her engagement to Adrian and dated a real jerk. Rectifying her mistakes has to wait, however, because Cassie and her friends have just enough time to escape Brooklyn for her parents’ cabin before Bornavirus LX turns them into zombies, too.
This is difficult enough, but Cassie’s tag along ex-boyfriend and her friend’s bratty sister have a knack for making everything, even the apocalypse, more unpleasant. When the two attract a threat as deadly as the undead to their safe haven, Cassie’s forced to see how far she’ll go to protect those she loves. And it’s a lot farther than she’d anticipated. This, coupled with Adrian’s distant voice on Safe Zone Radio and, of course, the living dead, threaten to put Cassie right back into the funk she just dragged herself out of.
Survival’s great and all, especially when you have leather armor, good friends and home-brewed beer, but there’s something Cassie must do besides survive: tell Adrian she still loves him. And to do that, Cassie has to find faith that she’s stronger than she thinks, she’s still a crack shot and true love never dies.
Vampire Vacation (The V V Inn #1) , by C.J. Ellisson
Meet Vivian. She’s a 580-year-old vampire who exudes sex, has a talent for drama, and is passionate about two things: her human husband, Rafe, and their resort for the undead. Her ability to project physical illusions has created the perfect vacation spot-a dark, isolated Alaskan hideaway where visitors can have their wildest fantasies come true.
Vivian knows the best performance requires perfect timing, but the powerful vamp is put to the test when she discovers a corpse in a locked guestroom minutes before the next arrivals. Always cool-headed, Rafe hides the body, convinced he and Vivian can find the culprit without disturbing their guests. Juggling the increasingly outrageous demands of their customers while tracking a killer isn’t easy.
Will their poking and prodding give them the answers they need, or will it uncover secrets Vivian would kill to protect?
