A pharmaceutical research facility in the heart of Venezuela's Amazon Basin goes silent without warning. Primordial beasts never before seen by human eyes annihilate the team sent to investigate.

Human eyes. The creatures have human eyes.

When a newly discovered, but exceedingly rare plant specie shows promise as a possible cure for cancer, pilot Austin Stewart is ordered to accompany the alluring biologist Olivia Dover and her team of researchers to retrieve another specimen.

But as the expedition journeys into the rainforest's shadowy depths, they soon find themselves hunted by the same creatures that slaughtered the rescue team years before—beasts the local Yanomami tribesmen call 'hekura'.

Crescent in the Sky

by Donald Moffitt

For one thousand years, the Great Awakening has spread the teachings of Islam to all of the far corners of the known universe. Without a Caliph at its head, the great Muslim empire had been a disparate conglomerate of power, for no one ruler had been able to bridge the great interplanetary distances to make the requisite pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. Then the Emir of Mars announces his plans to undertake this most ambitious of journeys and win the prize of the Caliphate, and Mars is thrust into a frenzy of plots and intrigue. Young scientist Abdul Hamid-Jones is not interested enough in politics to see how any of this could affect him, but he soon finds himself caught up in the web of court politics with his life at stake because of what he knows.

Highland Raven

by Melanie Karsak

Destined to become Queen of Scotland.

Bound by blood to the Celtic gods. Scotland, 1026—Gruoch, descendant of the line of MacAlpin, should have been born into a life of ease. But fate is fickle. Her father's untimely death, rumored to have been plotted by King Malcolm, leaves her future uncertain and stained by the prophecy that she will avenge her family line.

Escaping to one of the last strongholds of the old Celtic gods, Gruoch becomes an adept in arcane craft. Her encounters with the otherworld, however, suggest that magic runs stronger in Scotland than she ever imagined.

Haunted by dreams of a raven-haired man she’s never met, Gruoch soon feels her fate is not her own. She is duty-bound to wed a powerful lord, if not the Prince himself; however, she’s not sure she can stop her heart when she meets Banquo, a gallant highlander and druid.

A new journey will take him to lands with different colors and different ways from the Black. From a desperate escape through the hills and forests of the Black Nation to the vast Blue Plains of the city of Ayas, Asheva will learn to face the dangers of the wilderness but also to face the even more dangerous nature of the Chromes, including the worst accusation a Chrome can be charged with. Only then he will realize that beneath the masks that all Chromes wear, nothing is what it seems.
