Death in the Beginning by Gary Williams and Vicky Knerly

It has been an extraordinary summer for archaeologist Curt Lohan.  First, he discovered a magnificent manmade cave in the Canary Islands off the African coast.  Then, while exploring a newly-found gunpowder magazine inside a 300-year-old stone Spanish fort in St. Augustine, Florida, a man emerged.

The man is killed by police before his identity can be ascertained. All evidence indicates that the man had been sealed in the room for centuries.  When Curt uncovers a link between the Canary Island cave and the unidentified man, he realizes that he has stumbled upon a secret lost in history; the catalyst for the Fountain of Youth legend.

But the revelation holds terrifying consequences.  And there are those willing to murder to guard the truth.  As Northeast Florida braces for a deadly hurricane, Curt and his friends are drawn into a monumental conspiracy which could alter the balance of power…and destroy humanity.

The Hearts Ashes by A.M. Hudson

Death never leaves us. Once it’s touched our souls, it hungers for our return–waiting for us to fall. And if it finds Ara again, she will have no way to escape.

Moving on from David was hard, forgetting the abduction and torture was almost impossible, but nothing as devastating as the thought that now, because of her, David might face the horrific punishments of the Set.

No one knows where David went after he lost Ara, but she can only hope he’s the one leaving subtle clues for her to discover, and it makes her desperate to find him–desperate enough that she would risk her life, hanging out with an informant who means to kill her. What truths she is told about David’s dark past, though, will threaten to change her heart and destroy the way Ara perceives everything. She must ask herself if it’s right to love one monster, then hate the one who tried to destroy her.

Live Free of Die by Jessie Crockett

Life in tiny Winslow Falls, New Hampshire, is pretty darned good-until an arsonist decides to ruin everyone’s Christmas. The way volunteer fire chief and local postmistress Gwen Fifield sees it, her life in rural New Hampshire is as good as it can be. Sure, she’s gained twenty pounds, and her property taxes have skyrocketed, but her basement didn’t flood this year, and the general store started delivering pizza.

All things considered, Gwen’s got no complaints … that is, until she finds a body sizzled like a sausage in the smoldering remains of the Winslow Falls museum. When an artifact is traced to an immigrant family, most local residents are quick to blame the outsiders. But clues from the past convince Gwen that the town she’s always trusted is harboring a home-grown murderer.

Blood of Requiem by Daniel Arenson

Long ago stood the kingdom of Requiem, a land of men who could grow wings and scales, breathe fire, and take flight as dragons. Requiem ruled the sky.

But Dies Irae, a tyrant leading an army of griffins, hunted Requiem’s people, burned their forests, and shattered their temples. Requiem fell. This ancient land now lies in ruin, its halls crumbled, its cries silenced, its skeletons littering the burned earth.

In the wilderness, a scattering of survivors lives in hiding. The griffins still hunt them, and every day promises death. Will Requiem’s last children perish in exile… or once more become dragons and fly to war?
