Summary

Zack Decker wanted only one thing in life: to fight as a Marine Pathfinder. But his temper and his loathing for careerist officers cost him dearly. Forced into early retirement, with a wife who left him long ago, no job, no friends and no future, the former sergeant crawled into a bottle and stayed there, moving from planet to planet, looking for some reason to keep on living. Until, that is, he wandered into a bar owned by an old Marine buddy who offered to help. On the run after killing a corrupt cop, and nowhere to hide, he accepted. 
 
Decker would have done better to head for the hills, or surrender to the militia, however old friends could be persuasive and he soon found himself signing on as security officer of a starship with dubious owners and a dubious crew, doing things for his new employer that tested the old saying 'Once a Marine, always a Marine.' Curiosity was Decker's other major failing and in short order he was on the run, hunted by a shadowy government organisation, and in possession of a secret that could destroy the Commonwealth. It was a secret to die for, and the people on his trail wanted to make sure he did. Along the way, they forgot that he could still fight like one of the Few...

    Read The Entire Series That Reviewers Have Called: "Exciting," "Brilliant," "Original," "Vividly Intense," and a "Riveting, Page-Turning Read." 
    Maya was a mostly normal college sophomore when her life took a pretty sharp U-turn. That would be the fault of a mysterious and menacing stranger who killed her boyfriend with a single touch, took Maya in his arms, and flew away with her. Literally, flew. Turns out that there's a whole lotta'  weird and danger going on that most of the world knows nothing about. 
    The stranger injects Maya with his own bone marrow, and she starts to change. Cue the cool new abilities, like enhanced strength, sharpened senses, and the nifty ability to see emotions in the form of colorful auras. …Only there's this teensy eensy downside to Maya's new "talents." That would be her unhappyily insistent need to feed on the life energy of those around her.  
    Don't worry, Maya's not going dark side quite yet. She is rescued by two men claiming to be her half brothers. One brother believes Maya can be saved; the other one is keeping his gun primed and ready for when she gives into her hunger. Not exactly a happy family reunion. Somehow, the three mismatched siblings must find a way to fight the murderous group that calls themselves "angels" while learning how to trust each other. Oh, and when Maya's not desperately trying to control the tantalizing song of her hunger, you'd better bet she'll be looking for the one who changed her. She's got a raging case of revenge, not to mention a bullet with his name on it. 
    Join Maya and her two brothers for a whirlwind adventure across five exciting, action-packed books and two novellas in the Girl With Broken Wings Box Set by J Bennett. If you love the CW show Supernatural, then you are going to fall hard for Maya and her brothers, Gabe and Tarren. Even in the midst of super powers, gun battles, and far more Chuck Norris jokes than is decent, you'll also get a big dose of humor, family bonding, and some big, tear-jerking scenes.
