The Halo Revelations

by J.S. Colley

The body of an archaeologist is sent home in an urn. At the same time, a video he recorded ten years earlier goes viral on the internet. The video shows him wearing an ancient crown-like object, and acting so odd, the public thinks the once-famous archaeologist had a mental breakdown during his last expedition.

The artifact, which is soon dubbed the Halo, becomes the subject of a worldwide search by those who desire to understand and protect it, and by those who would abuse it.

While each harbor their own reasons, the archaeologist’s son, Nick; his old partner, Henry; Jane Carter of the SETI Institute; and NSA Special Agent Veronica “Ronnie” Vagnetti, all become embroiled in a battle to learn the truth about both the video and the Halo.

What the small group finally uncovers is astonishing. The shocking revelations contained within the Halo explain the once unexplainable, and answers questions that Man never even thought to ask.

But not all the ancient secrets of Man’s past are hidden within the object. Others secrets are revealed to only one of them.

Should the fiercely guarded secrets passed down through the ages and today known only to a few elite organizations and The Vatican—secrets that undermine the theories of both creationism and evolution, and that would shake the foundations of Christianity—be revealed? Is the World ready to learn the truth?

And will those individuals—whose lives have become intertwined with the fate of the Halo—find what they’ve been searching for?

California Bones

by Greg Van Eekhout

When Daniel Blackland was six, he ingested his first bone fragment, a bit of kraken spine plucked out of the sand during a visit with his demanding, brilliant, and powerful magician father, Sebastian.

When Daniel was twelve, he watched Sebastian die at the hands of the Hierarch of Southern California, devoured for the heightened magic layered deep within his bones.

Now, years later, Daniel is a petty thief with a forged identity. Hiding amid the crowds in Los Angeles--the capital of the Kingdom of Southern California--Daniel is trying to go straight. But his crime-boss uncle has a heist he wants Daniel to perform: break into the Hierarch's storehouse of magical artifacts and retrieve Sebastian's sword, an object of untold power.

For this dangerous mission, Daniel will need a team he can rely on, so he brings in his closest friends from his years in the criminal world. There's Moth, who can take a bullet and heal in mere minutes. Jo Alverado, illusionist. The multitalented Cassandra, Daniel's ex. And, new to them all, the enigmatic, knowledgeable Emma, with her British accent and her own grudge against the powers-that-be. The stakes are high, and the stage is set for a showdown that might just break the magic that protects a long-corrupt regime.

Extravagant and yet moving, Greg van Eekhout's California Bones is an epic adventure set in a city of canals and secrets and casual brutality--different from the world we know, yet familiar and true.

The Secret of Excalibur

by Sahara Foley

Hi, I’m Arthur Merlin. I used to be an ordinary guy, until a freak accident changed my life. Now my friends are afraid of me, and so am I. See, I developed superpowers: telepathy, pyrokinesis and telekinesis, to name a few.

The US government wanted to control me. But how do you control someone who can teleport anywhere he wants to in a blink of an eye? Fed up with their shenanigans, I headed for the Institute of Psychic Research in London.

But something is pulling me; calling me, and I don’t know what. I ended up at Lake George, where sightings of The Lady of the Lake and Excalibur have been reported. With the help of Dr. Burns and Commander Dobie, we uncovered the secrets of the lake, but they’re more than anyone imagined.

What would I sacrifice to save the world from Excalibur?
