Summary

A Challenge Met. A Calling Sought. A Faith Required. 
When Mara, Oathtaker to the ranking twin members of the Select, suffers an injury, her charges—Reigna and Eden—seek to determine their callings, while Dixon suffers over the potential loss of his beloved. 
As their allies disperse in response to a growing threat to their homeland, and as the forces of evil set out to destroy them, the twins journey across The Tearless. There, in fulfillment of prophecy, they face three challenges. 
A single misstep may bring them to ruin; perseverance, to glory. 
To triumph, they must first believe.

    The first three books in the bestselling military adventure series by “the best high-action thriller writer out there today, bar none” (Jon Land).  With nearly a quarter of a million copies sold, this high-octane series features Hawk Hunter, a fearless fighter pilot who saves the not-so-distant future United States from the brink of all-out anarchy.  Wingman: World War III started in Western Europe with a Soviet nerve gas attack that laid waste to France, Germany, and Spain. The world’s democracies fought back against the Russians but could not save America from a devastating nuclear strike. Two years after Soviet nukes rained from the sky, US Air Force pilot Hawk Hunter gets a message to report to his old commander. America is in pieces: Pirates rule the skies and an airborne armada is plotting to attack Football City (formerly St. Louis). The armada is made up of criminals flying state-of-the-art jets, and Hunter will do whatever it takes to reclaim his ravaged homeland.  The Circle War: One of the most decorated pilots of the old US Air Force, Hawk Hunter now flies for the Pacific American Air Corps, a group of sky jockeys who are ready to fight to save what’s left of America after a nuclear sneak attack shattered the nation into a collection of warring states dominated by criminals, fascists, and pirates. Flying his U-2 over the frozen tundra late one night, Hunter detects a full-scale Soviet invasion force of fifty jet fighters. World War IV is about to begin.  The Lucifer Crusade: After expelling a Russian invasion force, Hawk Hunter sets out in pursuit of Viktor Robotov, the sinister terrorist behind the attack. In a world where it’s a crime to wave stars and stripes, Hunter paints his F-16 red, white, and blue, and tears up the sky in search of revenge. There are hundreds of killers on his tail, but Hunter has only one target—and he never misses.

    In The Light Fantastic, only one individual can save the world from a disastrous collision. Unfortunately, the hero happens to be the singularly inept wizard Rincewind, who was last seen falling off the edge of the world.

    Burned out and drugged up, Alec LeGuerrier spends his days faking it, barely eking out an existence while living in a haze of confusion and medicated mellowness. That is, until he stops a gang of nightmarish oddities from killing a strange young woman with indigo eyes. Dragged into the lands of the dreaming, he must come to terms with his brutal past and his grim imagined future in a land his body knows is real, but his mind refuses to acknowledge. 
    From Cliff Jones, Jr. "Dreampunk" Community Leader: 
    "What actually happens when we dream? We can only remember bits and pieces here and there, leaving the vast depths of the dreamworld completely unknown to our waking minds. We know it's important somehow, but we don't know why. 
    Urban Gothic is a deep dive into the unconscious dreamworld of Alec LeGuerrier, an archetypal warrior battling his inner demons for the fate of his soul. In the mundane world, he's a veteran struggling with PTSD, chemically subdued and cut off from his own dreams. But in that other place, he can be so much more. 
    If you're a fan of Neil Gaiman (especially Neverwhere and The Sandman) or other modern #dreampunk writers like Jeb Sherrill and Yelena Calavera, then you should definitely check this one out. It's a quick read with a heavy heart, in the best possible way."

    Dr. Jonas Allen has been with the Center for Disease Control almost sixteen years. For most of his career, he’s been “in the trenches.” In 1997, he was in Zaire, investigating a monkey pox outbreak. He assisted investigators at the World Health Organization during the Uganda Ebola outbreak of 2000. He has studied West Nile, SARS, and H1N1, and he was even on-site after the Haitian earthquake of 2010.
    
    Jonas has been a firsthand witness to countless medical emergencies, any one of which could have spelled disaster for humanity. Each time, mankind dodged the fatal bullet—until now. Nothing could have prepared Jonas and his team for the nightmare that is about to unfold.
    
    People start exhibiting symptoms of violent psychosis. They cannot escape madness, and neither can the people around them. Deep within the infected minds of these victims, two organisms struggle to survive, and Jonas must race against time to identify the culprits and stop a rage pandemic. Atlanta is under siege. The CDC has become a refuge and possibly humanity’s last hope for survival. However, the solution to the pandemic may be more terrifying than the disease itself.

    It's a costly oversight.
