Summary

In a futuristic society where silicon-based and organic life forms commingle seamlessly, society’s government has been scientifically managing evolution to produce individuals with extraordinary cerebral prowess. The government’s ultimate goal is to use these “evolved” subjects’ super-brains to find a way to survive the impending, apocalyptic depletion of available energy sources. When the project’s last successful subject – unwitting, fourteen year-old Amos Hare -- is birthed to join the mission, he uncovers a corrupt government seeking immortality for its own members at the price of destroying all other life forms. Through a friendship with his emotional handler, Sarah, assigned to help him acclimate to life on the ship, Amos also discovers the bonds of human love.  While working together to solve the mystery of Pregnant Time, a tense struggle erupts between good and evil, silicon and flesh. Amos and Sarah must choose between physical salvation and spiritual depth -- abandoned by humanity long ago.

    It is difficult growing up in the shadow of heroes revered throughout the galaxy. But that is the lot of young Khorii—daughter of the legendary Acorna and her lifemate, Aari—who must now follow her own destiny through a fantastic universe of wonders and perils. 
    Khorii became a hero in her own right as she fought to save the universe from a mysterious, deadly plague that not even the healing powers of the Linyaari could stop.  
    Now, confined with the rest of the survivors on Paloduro, the home planet of the disease, it seems as if the danger may be fading, and Khorii and her friends may be able to stem the tide of death and disease . . . until ominous signs indicate that the perpetrators are near and that the epidemic is only beginning. As old enemies reemerge and a shocking family secret is revealed, Khorii must unlock the malevolent mysteries of the deadly pestilence with the aid of her android "brother" before their unknown foes complete their covert mission to cripple the entire star system.

    “Take a bite into fresh, fun vampire comedy…read Lynsay Sands.”—Carly Phillips Nobody does vampire romance quite like Lynsay Sands! Tall, Dark & Hungry is the fourth book in her insanely popular Argeneau vampire series—and she brilliantly blends laughter with steamy passion in this story about a British lass who falls hard for a tasty immortal in-law she meets when she crosses the ocean to attend a cousin’s New York wedding. Paranormal romance is hot, hot, hot! And Lynsay Sands is not only one of the pioneer authors of this subgenre…she’s one of the very best!

    What reviewers are saying:  
     
    “The action sequences in this book were amazing. The ending will leave you reeling. This story is incredible and Jennifer Quintenz is an amazingly talented author... This book is an absolute MUST read! You have strong characters, teenagers who are amazing in their normality in a paranormal life, and a father who would die for his adopted daughter, and an adopted daughter who is “supposed” to be evil but is the most caring teen I have seen in years. This book is not only a successful sequel but an incredible addition to any library. I can honestly admit that if I had book 3 in my hands when it was 2am and I’d finished this one I would have grabbed it up and continued this saga.” – Condygurl of the “Recent Reads” book blog  
     
    “I am a fan of the genre, and really enjoyed the first book in the trilogy. This one beats it - Quintenz neatly sidesteps the lull problem of middle-of-trilogy books, creating a page-turning web of self-contained plots while also continuing to flesh out the mythology of the series and set up the conflict in the concluding book. I read "Incubus" extremely rapidly, dying to find out what happened next, and propelled smoothly along by the polished, vivid prose. I'm going to start reading the third part immediately; Quintenz just keeps getting better.” – Daniel Maidman, review on Amazon.com  
     
    Incubus (Daughters of Lilith: Book 2)  
     
    Braedyn Murphy used to think nothing important ever happened in her sleepy town of Puerto Escondido. But that was before she learned she was a descendent of Lilith, the mother of all demons. Now Braedyn fights to protect humanity from the Lilitu - the beautiful, souls-stealing daughters of Lilith.  
     
    As she fights the Lilitu, Braedyn must also fight her growing love for her boyfriend Lucas - because even a simple kiss could end his life. Their only ray of hope is an angel’s offer to make Braedyn human, but it’s an offer she can’t accept until the world is safe from the Lilitu.  
     
    Braedyn knows she’s a key player in this ancient war... but she’s not ready to believe she just might be humanity’s best hope of surviving the final battle for Earth.  
     
    Praise for "Thrall" (Daughters of Lilith: Book 1)  
     
    "Before you even start this review, put down anything you are doing and go read Thrall. It's AMAZING! BREATHTAKING! Engaging and smart, Thrall leaves you speechless!"  
    - Savannah, Books With Bite  
     
    "The writing style is so smooth, yet gripping. Add some good characters, well-paced story and you have something that I like. No, not like. Love... No surprise that “Thrall” gets full five stars and the highest recommendations I can give."  
    - Linda, The Fantasy Librarian  
     
    "How do I even begin to put all the crazy, gushy, ramblings in my brain about this book onto paper?!? Where to even begin?....This book is a MUST read!"
