Hunted (Blessed by the Moon Book 1)
by Antara Mann
Demons are hunting me.
You know the old adage: wrong place, wrong time? That’s my problem.
When a freeloader dines and dashes at the bar where I wait tables, I run after him, demanding he pay his bill. Trouble is, I’m not the only one chasing him. By the time I catch up — in a dark, secluded alley — the freeloader is dead. Murdered by creatures that exist only in the grimmest fairy tales.
Bad news: monsters are real and now they want me dead.
Good news: Sexy-as-sin alpha werewolf, Aidan McSmith, takes me under his protection while he investigates the fellow werewolf’s death.
As we learn more about the murder, dodging demons, enemy werewolves, and a dark sorcerer, we unravel a bigger conspiracy that threatens to tear apart Aidan’s pack. And take my life.
Time to master my magic and fight back the monsters!

Exin Ex Machina
by G. S. Jennsen
Cyberpunk and space opera collide in a thrilling new trilogy from the author of the acclaimed Aurora Rhapsody saga.
When man and machine are one and the same, there are many crimes but only one sin: psyche-wipe. The secrets it has buried could lead to a civilization’s salvation, or to its doom.
The Asterion Dominion is at peace with its neighbors and itself. Its citizens enjoy great freedoms and all the luxuries their biosynthetic minds can imagine, design and create. But beneath the idyllic veneer, something is going wrong. People are going wrong, driven to commit inexplicable crimes without motive or purpose. And once imprisoned for those crimes, they simply vanish.
Psyche-wiped and dumped in an alley 5 years ago, awakened into a culture where ancestral memories stretch back for millennia, Nika Tescarav’s past is a blank canvas. But if whoever erased her did so in the hope of silencing her, they should have tried harder.
Someone must speak for the lost.
Someone must uncover how and why they became lost.
Someone must find the lost.
Nika is that someone.
700,000 years ago, the Asterions fled persecution for their pro-synthetic beliefs. In the safe harbor of a distant galaxy, they have evolved into a true biosynthetic race and built a thriving society upon the pillars of personal autonomy, mutual respect and boundless innovation.
Now that society is fracturing at the seams. Beneath lies built upon lies, the shocking truth as to why threatens the future of not merely the Asterions, but all life in the universe.
Enter a world of technological wonders, exotic alien life, enthralling characters, captivating worlds—and a terrifying evil lurking in the void that will shatter it all.
by Ruth Nestvold

And she will do anything to get revenge on the man who got her with child and ruined her life.
Set in 5th century Britain after the Romans have left the province to fend for itself, Ygerna’s coming of age chronicles the battles of the Romanized Britons against the Anglo-Saxon tribes who want to take over the island at the beginning of the Dark Ages.

One system stands against the onslaught, the Kingdom of New Avalon. But the men and women of their expeditionary forces are trapped behind enemy lines on a besieged planet. Losing those troops will lose the war.

In the skies and orbit, Lieutenant Jason ‘Rick’ Richards and the untested pilots of Viper squadron clash in a furious battle for supremacy against elite enemy fighters.
And on the ground, Private Patrick ‘Wink’ Goble and his platoon must hold the line against a ruthless commander and her overwhelming force of battle-tested mechs until salvation arrives.
All will play their part in this desperate struggle for survival against impossible odds.

Until the Haze struck.

Nineteen humorous sci-fi stories telling of the man who saved the world (kind of), and the man who didn’t, the laptop that discovered it is self-aware, the puzzling Christmas message from Outer Space, the unluckiest man on Earth, and the spur-of-the-moment decision that doomed Mankind.
The Puppet of the Omnigods
by Andrew Baltasar
The planet Terram is submerged in an endless informational storm that leaves encoded patterns all over the earth. Light and sound reflect in a very special way at such surfaces, causing the creatures they reach to think and feel only what’s appropriate for those who control the planet.
Only one kind of creature is immune to the storms – the thaumaturges. Distant relatives of wizards, thaumaturges feel, think and weave information that contradicts the existing world order.
Aneralt is a young thaumaturge student at Kakhard-Toon wizard school. Hated by his fellow wizards for who he is and for generating the ideas they will never be able to comprehend, he finds himself in the midst of a conflict between the all-powerful Omnigods, with his only ally his wild element – an animated fire that lives at the bottom of his wizard earring.
If he is to survive, Aneralt must face the ultimate truth about his nature, and uncover why the Omnigods have been following him all this time.
Perfect for those who love Brandon Sanderson, Patrick Rothfuss and Joe Abercrombie. The Puppet of the Omnigods is the result of 8 years of world-building with elements of quantum physics and programming.
