DESCRIPTION:

A meteorite fell into the Tennessee River in Decatur, Alabama. A fissure inside the lump of stone contained parasitic microbes that were released into the water. Small fish ate the parasite colonies. They were in turn eaten by larger fish, which were caught by a local fisherman. This introduced them into the human food chain and initiated a zombie apocalypse.

It began with a 911 call in Decatur. When the caller didn't speak to the dispatcher she sent the police, who called an ambulance after finding Roy Akins unconscious on the floor. Patient zero died in the Emergency Room of Decatur General Hospital.

The cadaver was taken to the hospital morgue. Inside Mr. Akins' body, the parasitic microbes that had killed him began to starve due to the lack of nutrients, normally provided by the host. This caused the clusters located inside his skull to become more active. They generated nerve impulses that they sent throughout the body. One by one, the parasites were able to reanimate Roy's central nervous system. Brain damage from the lack of oxygen had destroyed the victim's cognitive ability, and his circulatory system had collapsed and had to be restarted, all of which took time to happen.

Two hours after his death, Roy awoke to a ravenous hunger.

By day, Sondrine Renfrew works at Cimmerian's Curio Emporium, her aunt's apothecary and antique shop in London, 1875. By night, she weaves fire, water, and air into both inanimate objects and living creatures. When a hooded stranger offers Sondrine a snow globe in trade for medicinal herbs, she accepts, enchanted by the castle, forest, and sea encapsulated under the glass.

Her enchantment fades, however, when her deceitful aunt betroths her to one of London's wealthiest men--a complete stranger. Determined to escape the marriage, Sondrine trades her corset for trousers and decides to run away. With one foot out the door, she falls down a veritable rabbit hole into Winterhaven, the haunting world inside the snow globe.

Sondrine soon discovers her arrival in Winterhaven is no accident. There, she meets Shán, a man who broods more than the darkened sky above. Turns out Shán is not to be trusted. Not only is he the man who sold Sondrine the snow globe, he is a bounty hunter employed by the king. The beginnings of a sovereign war have been set in motion and an Immortal queen, one who uses fire as a weapon, is set on destroying Winterhaven. Because of her Elemental gifts, only Sondrine has the means to stop the queen. If Sondrine refuses the king's request, he will behead her. If she rises to the challenge of killing the Immortal queen, her death is just as imminent. After all, an Immortal queen cannot be killed.

Or can she?

DESCRIPTION:

Beneath the surface of a London top university, an ancient society known as The Seechers, operate. They protect the world's biggest secret. A hidden gateway to the subconscious world. Unlocked only by a mysterious liquid, found deep within the human brain.

Intense dreamer, Aris Fletcher, moves back home to look after his sick father. Transferring to the local university to continue to care for his father, Aris begins his second year in Philosophy, a month late into the term. Once there, he becomes captivated by fiery and intelligent Maya Green, who won’t give Aris the time of day unless he joins the PP Club. After Aris surprisingly solves the answer to the Professor’s long standing ‘impossible conundrum’, he’s given a place in the elite Research Associates Group, known as the PP Club. Maya finally lets her guard down with Aris and she recruits him to help her on her personal quest to uncover a mystery that’s baffled her for years. What’s a Seecher? Do Seechers exist?

Aris starts to scratch the surface of this mystery and after spying on Professor Maxwell, Aris discovers that the Professor disappeared into a Mirrored Room. As Aris and Maya get closer to unravelling what Seechers are, shadowy abductions begin to occur on campus. After some shocking home truths hit Maya and an attack nearly kills Aris, the pair are put on very separate paths until Maya finds out who has abducted her father.

Aris, having spent time with the Seechers and now armed with knowledge of how to access a different dimension of reality and the ancient secrets that they protect, tries to help Maya rescue her father, but only seems to make things worse. The Seechers, after testing Aris in the Mirror Sands to see if he has what it takes to become a Seecher, become alarmed at what they find out about him and Aris finds hidden strength through a mysterious connection to a celestial being.

About the Series

This is Book 1 of a 5-part series. Book 2 is due to release in January 2022. The story of the series sees the continuation of the adventures of Aris Fletcher and the Seechers. Each book ends of a cliff-hanger, leading into the next book. The series is fully mapped out as Aris goes on a dark journey to save the subconscious of mankind from a dark and evil force, in another dimension. The central relationship is between Aris and Maya, whose friendship first develops in Book 1 when Aris and Maya must work as a team to figure out the mystery of the Seechers and how to save Maya’s father after his abduction. As the Series develops, so does their codependent and complicated love for each other.

DESCRIPTION:

The Woman Under The White Tree

Frank Morris, a young man looking to enter into the Catholic priesthood, is offered the chance to accompany Father Michael Agnew on what he thinks will be a routine task. You know the sort of task priest's do, such as having tea and buns with old ladies too afraid to leave the house.

Frank quickly discovers he is wrong.

Father Agnew isn't like a typical member of the Church. Nor is the nature of his job.

In the rolling hills of the Northern Irish countryside, the Ballygore Road has the highest fatality rate in all of the United Kingdom. It's history and that of the land around it is long and bloody, stretching back to famine times. Having listened to those fortunate enough to survive; Father Agnew suspects that there is more to the accidental deaths that occur on the road than bad driving.

He believes it's haunted.

Frank Morris thinks the Father is joking. He thinks he's being pranked. Surely, there's no such thing as ghosts. Is there?

The Woman Under The White Tree is perfect for horror fans especially those that enjoy stories that feature two members of the Catholic priesthood, Ford Cortina's, exorcism, time travel and everything else but the kitchen sink. It is also the first story in the Father Michael Agnew series.

DESCRIPTION:

A small-town baker uses her magic to confront a post–vampire apocalypse world in this award-winning fantasy Neil Gaiman called "pretty much perfect."

Although it had been mostly deserted since the Voodoo Wars, there hadn't been any trouble out at the lake for years. Rae Seddon, nicknamed Sunshine, head baker at her family's busy and popular café in downtown New Arcadia, needed a place to get away from all the noise and confusion--of the clientele and her family. Just for a few hours. Just to be able to hear herself think.

She knew about the Others, of course. Everyone did. And several of her family's best regular customers were from SOF--Special Other Forces--which had been created to deal with the threat and the danger of the Others.

She drove out to her family's old lakeside cabin and sat on the porch, swinging her feet and enjoying the silence and the silver moonlight on the water.

She never heard them coming. Of course, you don't when they're vampires.

Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Sookie Stackhouse will cheer for this tough and quirky heroine. In Sunshine, which won the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature, McKinley has a vampire novel that is "a smart, funny tale of suspense and romance" (San Francisco Chronicle).

DESCRIPTION:

Something evil lurks in the woods, on the outskirts of town. It lives in the shadows and strikes without warning, always with the same objective: to mutilate, kill and devour its victim.

It's a monster with a cannibalistic craving for human flesh, and a sexual appetite which seemingly cannot be satiated. No victim is left alive, and the scattered remains divulge very little to the police pathologist.

As the body count rises, the superintendent in charge of the investigation resorts to desperate measures. But soon, it becomes obvious that the police have woefully underestimated their suspect. A mistake which will cost them dearly.
