Keepers of the Dawn

cover

For two thousand years the Teeth have stood, three immense barriers of divine light rising high into the heavens, encircling the world, dividing it from Paradise. Like others of the Penitent world, Dreen and his telepathically impaired son, Bartu, cling to a dream. A dream that one day a savior will arrive to fell the imprisoning Teeth. Unlike others, however, their dream rests on more than mere faith. It rests on the promise of an artifact that came to their family centuries ago. A holy relic that is key to a future savior’s success.

To keep the relic safe, Dreen and Bartu must keep it secret. A task not easily accomplished in this world of telepaths. Making the task even more difficult is an obscure prophecy that foretells of the sacred artifact. A prophecy that Rue-A-Kai, the Destroyer, knows well. With the strength of a hundred wizards, the reincarnated savior of the Vile hordes imperils not only the Penitent kingdoms he now threatens to overrun, but also the promised arrival of a true future savior. Were the demonic Rue-A-Kai to acquire the holy relic, his perverse interpretation of prophecy would transform the relic from a device of deliverance to one of damnation, ensuring that the Teeth never fell, that the world never saw Paradise.

Yet the relic remains safely hidden, as it has for centuries. And there is no reason to believe it will not continue to remain so for centuries to come. No reason at all, that is, until the accident. . . .

Death Becomes Her

A thousand years of effort to keep the UnknownWorld hidden is unraveling and the Patriarch is tired.  He needs to find someone to take over.

He finds Bethany Anne.

Unknown, untested and untried she sets out to accomplish the impossible while forging a new future.  One that no one knew was in danger.

And she does it with an attitude that will make you stand up and cheer!

They say a dress can make a woman, but in this case, the dress is Death, and Death Becomes Her very well indeed.

Queen Bitch

The UnknownWorld is reeling from change. 

Bethany Anne has started to make a difference in the first week of being ‘awake’. Now, America has been losing good men since their teams don’t have a Vampire to help them and Frank is hoping Bethany Anne can, and will, help.

Further, the American Pack Council is having internal problems with their own “young and dumb” Were’s who want to ignore Michael’s strictures.

With no one seeing Michael, the fear of the ‘Boogeyman’ is starting to recede.

Love Lost

When one of Bethany Anne’s loved one gets caught in the crossfire between her and the Forsaken, she goes rabid in rage. She doesn’t believe in seeking peace and harmony, but rather revenge and mayhem.

Continuing the story of Bethany Anne and TQB team, Love Lost picks up after Queen Bitch. She works to complete both her business and military team leads and we meet Stephen’s daughter Gabrielle as plans are made to exact revenge South of the Border.

You don’t touch one of Bethany Anne’s loved ones and get away with it, no matter how far away you live.

Bite This

You take out one annoying vampire in revenge, and now you have to clean up the mess? What a pain in the … something.

Bethany Anne and crew are back! They need to grab a ship, figure out who is trying to dig into her businesses, get their hands around the potential for creating an A.I. and the ongoing mess with Anton and South America.

One of these days, she will get a break. Fortunately for us, it wasn’t today.

Never Forsaken

Life is beyond dangerous when you are caught up in the ongoing war between Bethany Anne’s group and the Forsaken.

Both Vampires and Humans have been targeted, but if there is one thing that those who work with Bethany Anne learn, it is you are NEVER FORSAKEN.

Under My Heel

Europe is erupting is tension and violence.

David is only adding to the conflagration by setting a trap, one that our team will trip to save those people still alive.

There is one thing every enemy of Bethany Anne finds out. They will be ground down under her heels.

Kneel or Die

The future just went upside down, when a nascent AI is added against Bethany Anne’s wishes.

Then, there is David and his issues to take care of, permanently.

Bethany Anne has had it with Terrorists.

Not encumbered with law, she seeks only justice for those who were killed in France.

NOTE: This book contains cursing. Perhaps humorous cursing, but cursing nevertheless. If this offends you, I don’t suggest reading this book.

The Return of the Eternals

cover

Being one of the highest ranking members of an anti-terrorist organization called Luxarx, Kaleth assumes he knows everything there is to know about the organization, and their most prominent foe, the Umbra.

He is proven wrong, however, after a chance encounter with one of their supposed enemies. The Umbra in question isn’t violent or threatening—he’s just scared. And he makes Kaleth start to question everything he has been told by his superiors.

Kaleth decides to investigate this oddity, but to get to the bottom of this, he needs help from someone outside of the organization—he doesn’t trust the agents outside of his team not to betray him. Enter Nef, a brother of one of Kaleth’s coworkers, who knows his way around computer security—something Kaleth sorely needs to be able to break into Luxarx’s most secret database.

But instead of simply finding out what is going on at Luxarx, Kaleth ends up discovering an ancient secret involving his country, his government, and even his own existence.

Unearthed

cover

Blague is a defiler, a criminal, a demon… to most of the world. But to some, he is a liberator. Scorned and banished, he knew that this wasn’t to be his end – that something, somewhere deep, burned within him. A power so immense that it would define the legacy of an entire rebellion, if only he could ever unlock it.

His past is a cold mess. After his mother and father were stolen from him, after he witnessed the murder of the person he loved most in this world… there was nothing left to take. He’d lost everything to the Hiezers.

Now he treks in exile, as a Sin, witnessing more of the Hiezer atrocities. He watches causeless violence, innocents dragged away, permanently, for some dark experimental objective. Now more than ever, renewed purpose is clear – Blague must break the chains, and he must unleash his inner demons to do it.

It’s here, with a multifarious group of able misfits that his journey takes shape, one with a singular facet that holds true throughout it all – their suffering has only just begun.
