    During the Civil War, Lewis McCormack has to return to his regiment’s training camp, leaving his wife Eliza to tend to their homestead. Rearing children, surviving a declining economy, and paying the family debts leads to intolerable hurdles and even more difficult decisions. Amid the chaos of war, Lewis just wants to stay alive—to make it back to his family.
     
    Meanwhile, Private Davey Morris is detailed as courier and travels through war-torn Pennsylvania to complete his mission, while Private Tandy Strider uses his thirty-day wounded furlough to search for the young prostitute that he has deemed his soulmate.
     
    As the war progresses, Lewis realizes that his soul has hardened—and deep inside, he only feels emptiness. Will Lewis make it through the war? And when he returns, in what state will he find his family? Will they even survive?
     
    In a raw, realistic narrative, The Roads of War exposes the authenticity of battle—the hardships, the struggle, and the yearning for tranquility. John Cameron weaves a true-to-life quilt of human emotion, universal tribulation—and the power of love.

    And so Zelina, the innocent abroad, finds herself unexpectedly in a menacing and threatening world of Secret Police, spies, sinister intrigue and predatory Russian aristocrats with only the dashing Lord Charnock to protect her in an unknown and uncaring land.

    A “fresh, intense, erotic, funny, and scary” novel of vampiric horror from the New York Times–bestselling author of the Stillhouse Lake novels (P.N. Elrod, author of Drawing Dead and Other Stories). After eight years of marriage, surgeon Mike Bowman and his police officer wife have snuck time into their busy schedules to celebrate their anniversary. But work is never far from Mike’s mind, which is why he finds himself in the morgue in the middle of night instead of in his wife’s arms . . .    Trying to come to terms with two young murder victims he wasn’t able to save, Mike unburdens himself to his friend and morgue attendant Adam Radburn. Good ol’ Adam, whose eyes seem bizarrely dark tonight and whose reflection in the cold storage drawers . . . doesn’t exist.    When Adam reveals his true self to Mike—and saves him from the clutches of death—Mike goes from a man trained to save lives to one who must take them to survive. And though Mike is now immune to mortal dangers, there are new threats to contend with and worse creatures who walk the Earth. One has been tracking Adam for centuries. To satisfy his bloodlust, he’s willing to destroy everyone Adam holds dear—including his new offspring.  “In The Undead, vampires lurk menacingly, and they are not the cute, cuddly, romantic-type vampires of modern urban fiction. These are serious, life-threatening, blood-sucking, kill-you-till-you’re-dead vampires . . . [A] diamond in the rough.” —Rambles
