Once Bitten . . .
One minute Leigh is walking home in the early hours of the morning, and the next a vampire is sinking his teeth into her neck. Turns out it was a rogue vampire marked for termination, but it does Leigh little good because the damage's already been done. She's become one of them.
Lucian Argeneau, hunter of rogue vampires, has been alive for over two thousand years, and there's very little to excite him anymore. Food has become tasteless, sex is ordinary. Then Leigh drops into his life. Suddenly he finds himself craving coffee . . . and imagining the sassy brunette atop the black satin sheets on his nice big bed. It's Lucian's job now to enlighten Leigh on the inner workings of being immortal . . . and tutoring her is igniting a fire in him that hasn't burned in centuries.
But until they stop a renegade bloodsucker from destroying the human race, passion will have to wait!
Isn’t it time for SciFi to honor the Mentor?
Don’t get me wrong. I love watching Luke train under Obi-wan, and Harry learn from Professor Dumbledore. But this story puts the teacher center stage instead of killing him.
Join Brant as he teaches mutant students to harness their abilities. Fight beside him as he protects his school. Defend him as he goes head-to-head with stubborn administration tied up in politics.
It’s time for the SciFi Mentor, like Professor Xavier, to be the hero. (And yes, tenacious Knox has Brant's back, along with the entire Maverick crew.)
Marjorie King loves space adventures with explosions, robots, space battles, schemes, escapes, death, nanobots, and sarcastic one liners.
The Society for Magickal Heritage’s best agents are heading back into paradise. Giddy Gods help them all.
No one ever said heroic adventure would be easy, but this is ridiculous.
Magickal wonderlands aren’t meant to have a dark side. Heroes aren’t meant to get stranded there, either.
Ves may be up for anything, but she hadn’t expected that pretty much anything would be up for her.
And with a horde of unhappy spirits enjoying a direct line to Zareen’s psyche, it’s lucky she’s unbreakable... right?
Mysteries deepen and madness abounds in three more Modern Magick adventures: The Wonders of Vale, The Heart of Hyndorin, and Alchemy and Argent.
Twenty-year-old Solana and her family cling to life in the highlands of Argentina as poisonous gas bubbles up from the ocean, creeping ever higher into the mountains and threatening the last remaining survivors of a dying world. When Solana wins a mysterious lottery that offers a safe haven for those strong enough to reach a secret location before the deadline, she must not only convince her family the lottery is real but also bring live animals and seeds on a harrowing trek across continents.
The mountains of Switzerland have protected Skylar and his father from the disasters around them. With their water and food supply dwindling, his father enters the lottery and almost wins. If one of the winners doesn’t show up to claim their spot, Skylar and his father have a shot—but Skylar’s father doesn’t plan on playing by the rules.
Peggy is a twelve-year-old Cherokee Indian girl and orphan in the mountains of Alaska. When her foster father wins the lottery, Peggy is excited for the adventure as they load up an RV and head south. These three families will face a wild and unforgettable journey across a hazardous landscape with mutant creatures, poisonous gas, acid rain and more as they race to reach their destination before the deadline.
I am a spider who is higher in rank than other spiders. With all humility, if all the spiders in this world were put in one hand and I was put in the other I would outweigh them in superiority. I am not one to make false claims and show-off, I am simply stating facts. I do not think that I need to introduce myself to the reader, for I am sure you understand that I am the spider of the cave that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) hid in. I am the one, who was responsible for the Prophet's deliverance. I am the one, who Allah sent to protect him.
My web is very flimsy and light and the slightest breeze can blow it away. However, despite the weakness of my web, I managed to ward off the iron swords of the atheists that went out in pursuit of the Prophet, and moreover, I was able to defeat them! The outcome of the conflict between the spiders' weak silk and the iron of the swords was the defeat of iron. My house is considered a parable of weakness, "Verily, the frailest (weakest) of houses is the spider's house." I sat in my house protecting the noble house of Islam and guarding the Prophet of Allah, Muhammad ibn ' Abdullah (peace be upon him).
That was not all that happened to me. Something even more wonderful happened; I saw the Prophet. I know that after the Prophet's death, millions will visit his grave to cry and pray.
Moreover, each one of those who cry and pray will imagine the picture of the Messenger of Allah in his mind. But I saw him. I lived with him for three days. He lived as a guest under my cobweb for three whole days. Ah! My heart spins when I remember these days. They were magnificent. Before I saw him, I only loved spiders, food and life, but after I saw him I could only bring myself to love the truth. I changed after I saw him. Have you ever seen a spider cry before? I did. I, the spider, cried when he (peace be upon him) intended to leave the cave ...He left the cave and headed towards the city.
I said to him, "O Messenger of Allah I will miss you..."
