Parijs, 1295. Will Campbell heeft het Midden-Oosten de rug toegekeerd en zich weer bij de Orde der Tempeliers gevoegd. Maar dan ontdekt hij dat de Orde heeft toegezegd aan de zijde van zijn gezworen vijand, koning Edward van Engeland, ten strijde te zullen trekken tegen zijn geboorteland Schotland. Will begint te twijfelen aan zijn loyaliteit en verplichtingen aan de Orde. Ondertussen raakt zijn dochter Rose van hem vervreemd naarmate ze zich meer en meer verliest in een gevaarlijke affaire. Will komt voor een moeilijke keuze te staan: bij de Orde blijven en vechten voor een doel waar hij niet in gelooft, of zijn geloften verbreken en zijn eigen weg gaan. Maar voor Will kans krijgt om te kiezen, zal hij zich moeten voorbereiden op een gevecht tegen een machtigere vijand dan hij ooit tegenover zich heeft gehad – een koning die zich door niets of niemand laat weerhouden om zijn ambities te vervullen.

Recurring nightmares about her father's violent death have become a nightly event, but being overwhelmed with guilt from Ryan's unexpected departure to the Armed Forces, and heart ache over Claire being across the ocean to protect him, Nina believes her sleepless nights are the least of her problems—but she's wrong. Worried about Nina's declining health, Jared must steal back Shax's book for answers. Fighting new enemies with the help of old friends, Jared's worst fear comes to fruition. Desperate, he is faced with a choice: Fight Hell alone, or start a war with Heaven.
Fiction. REQUIEM by Teresa Carmody is a "folk opera, a lament for the unexamined life," writes editor and author David Ulin in his Introduction. In this short collection of fiction, a lonely man plainchants for the waitress he once stalked, a sonless father serenades a fatherless son, and a bereft family gathers to bury a parent, providing an aching chorus of what is left. Carmody uses Biblical language to pierce the callous and bruised souls of these lost, and sometimes found, small-town Michiganders. In her raw spare stories, Carmody creates, says novelist, essayist and poet Carol Muske-Dukes, "a voice out of the backyard burning bush, a Midwest scriptural mist: frank, fierce and fidgety, and most emphatically her own."
The girl’s body lay on the riverbank, her arms outflung. Her blonde hair lay in matted clumps, shockingly pale against the muddy bank. Her face was like a porcelain sculpture that had been broken and glued back together: grey cracks were visible under the white sheen of her dead skin. Her lips were so blue they could have been traced in ink. When the body of troubled teenager Elodie Duncan is pulled from the river in Abbeyford, the case is at first assumed to be a straightforward suicide. Detective Sergeant Kate Redman is shocked to discover that she’d met the victim the night before her death, introduced by Kate’s younger brother Jay. As the case develops, it becomes clear that Elodie was murdered. A talented young musician, Elodie had been keeping some strange company and was hiding her own dark secrets. As the list of suspects begin to grow, so do the questions. What is the significance of the painting Elodie modelled for? Who is the man who was seen with her on the night of her death? Is there any connection with another student’s death at the exclusive musical college that Elodie attended? As Kate and her partner Detective Sergeant Mark Olbeck attempt to unravel the mystery, the dark undercurrents of the case threaten those whom Kate holds most dear… Requiem (A Kate Redman Mystery: Book 2) is the second in The Kate Redman Mysteries series from crime writer Celina Grace, author of Hushabye (A Kate Redman Mystery), Lost Girls and The House on Fever Street. crime mystery, British crime mystery, police procedural, female detective

If you are a fan of good old-school "there's-something-weird-going-on-out-there-in-them-woods" kind of horror - the kind of horror made famous by novels like Stephen King's SALEMS LOT or Stan Winston's PUMPKINHEAD then you will DEFINITELY enjoy TATTERDEMON. Hell is coming. And it's dressed in rags... ************* WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT STEVE VERNON "The genre needs new blood and Steve Vernon is quite a transfusion." –Edward Lee, author of FLESH GOTHIC and CITY INFERNAL "If Harlan Ellison, Richard Matheson and Robert Bloch had a three-way sex romp in a hot tub, and then a team of scientists came in and filtered out the water and mixed the leftover DNA into a test tube, the resulting genetic experiment would most likely grow up into Steve Vernon." - Bookgasm "Steve Vernon is something of an anomaly in the world of horror literature. He's one of the freshest new voices in the genre although his career has spanned twenty years. Writing with a rare swagger and confidence, Steve Vernon can lead his readers through an entire gamut of emotions from outright fear and repulsion to pity and laughter." - Cemetery Dance "Armed with a bizarre sense of humor, a huge amount of originality, a flair for taking risks and a strong grasp of characterization - Steve's got the chops for sure." - Dark Discoveries "Steve Vernon was born to write. He's the real deal and we're lucky to have him." - Richard Chizmar My Mom thinks I'm pretty cool, too.
