I am a problem in motion—and for better or worse, I am on the road to being seriously mental.Join me on my quest for purpose and sanity as I journey through life in other people’s bodies. For these are the chronicles of one who feeds on killers—my killers. These are the chronicles of Marko Santana.Born in Texas. Died all over.I, Target is a 5-part series and each part must be read in order. I, Target (The Complete Series) is also available.Warning: I, Target contains no cool graphics.

“Wenstrom’s debut is the catalyst for a planned series of fantasy war tales, kicked off with this thoroughly expanded retelling of the Orpheus myth.” —Publishers WeeklyWinner of the Royal Palm Literary Award for Book of the Year and First Place for FantasyTorn apart by war and abandoned by the gods, only one hope remains to save humanity. But the savior isn’t human at all. Trapped by his maker’s dark command to protect a mysterious box, Adem—an unlikely hero—is forced to kill anyone who tries to steal it. When a young boy chances upon Adem’s temple, he resists the lure of curiosity and temptation, intriguing the golem. The boy and his sister convince Adem to go against his maker’s edict, leaving the refuge of the temple. But their adventure soon lands them in a web of trouble. Now Adem will do whatever is necessary to keep his new young charges safe, even if it means giving up the only thing he’s ever truly wanted . . . a chance at a soul of his own.“There’s something primal in Mud. It’s a reverent, mythical story of supernatural beings who justify desperate measures in their quest to feel complete. They struggle with emotions we all understand, even as they challenge the very rules that govern all of creation.” —Robert Wiesehan, author of Aurora Knights: Loyalties“I really like books about uncommon supernatural creatures, so, when I saw Mud had a golem as the protagonist, I jumped at the chance to read it. A well-written and enjoyable read.” —Metaphors and Moonlight
Space stations, scattered throughout the cosmos are peopled with scientists and engineers. Cargo shuttles that leave Earth’s gravity on their own power, deliver supplies on a regular schedule. Still there are remnants of the past in rural areas that cling to the disappearing life of yesteryear. And yet, there are terrorists, reborn out of the days of Islamic al Qaeda. A reorganization, under the name of “Defenders of Islam,” has made its mark on the free world. Colonel Harmon Steele has felt the wrath of these terrorists. Accused and convicted of destroying a space station, the only way he can prove his innocence is to find the terrorists who did plant the bomb, but standing in his way is a beautiful assassin called the “Black Widow.” In the not too distant future, cars are driven in the air. Ground cars run on electric highways. Telephone poles with miles of wire are only seen in history books. Electrical energy supplies the world’s needs from satellites.
Ever since Beth Bradley found her way into a hidden London, the presence of its ruthless goddess, Mater Viae, has lurked in the background. Now Mater Viae has returned with deadly consequences. Streets are wracked by convulsions as muscles of wire and pipe go into spasm, bunching the city into a crippled new geography; pavements flare to thousand-degree fevers, incinerating pedestrians; and towers fall, their foundations decayed. As the city sickens, so does Beth-her essence now part of this secret London. But when it is revealed that Mater Viae's plans for dominion stretch far beyond the borders of the city, Beth must make a choice: flee, or sacrifice her city in order to save it.
