Summary

    Bwana hadn't heard of Ilya Gorshkin when he rescued the two women from a gang in Paris. It was only later, when they trusted him, that they told him of the master criminal. 
    European law enforcement authorities had tried to find and arrest Gorshkin, but had never succeeded. Gorshkin was not only several steps ahead, he was ruthless in taking out search teams. Gorshkin wasn't Bwana's problem. The U.S. Special Forces operative was vacationing in Paris and his mind should have been on fine food, wine, and the sights.  
    However, Bwana can't forget the terror in the women's eyes and decides to go after Gorshkin. All by himself. After all, he, Bwana Kayembe is one of the most lethal men alive and has always come out on top in battles. 
    The problem is Ilya Gorshkin doesn't do battle. He does war. He knows Bwana is hunting him, and he is ready.

    Alexis, still young and inexperienced, must lead the Angels' army to war. But Lucas, leader of evil on Earth, trumps every step she takes as he orchestrates the beginnings of World War III. He single-handedly turns the humans against the Amadis, and when Alexis tops every country's list of Most Wanted Terrorists, she and her team are forced to go underground to fight this war. 
     
    With the help of her people and a group of unexpected allies, Alexis must prevent the Daemoni from taking over humanity, but the Four Horsemen have apparently arrived, bringing the world into the apocalypse. If Lucas is truly the Antichrist, as many claim, then they're all a part of an age-old prophecy of divine providence. But Alexis and her team will do everything they can to stop Lucas and change the world's destiny, even if it means they die trying.

    „The Shadow Over Innsmouth” follows a nameless narrator touring New England for information on his family, and studying the local architecture. The story describes a man who finds himself stranded in a half-deserted town with strange inhabitants. They look human – mostly, but there is something odd about their eyes and their behavior. He meets the town drunk, Zadok Allen, who tells him the terrifying history of the town, about Devil Reef and mutant humanoids, sea gods, gold, and human sacrifice. When the narrator finds himself stranded in town overnight, he comes face to face with the town’s horrifying secret... one not of this world... A story about the horror that could turn to wonder, the once perceived abyss is afterwards seen as the most fascinating destiny, and what was at first avoided at all costs is eventually embraced with open arms.
