Arthur goes Hunting . . . and Kelly Boudreaux (and Stead) go on vacation.
Seven stories both Familiar and new. Arthur must deal with both family tension and the undead as Martha shelters the Lone Hunter from storms outside and in. Deborah learns more about her roots (and berries, and stems.) Kelly and Stead take a much needed break from chasing wild land firefighters while a coven sorts out the passing seasons. And a dead man’s legacy haunts Thomas Arthur Chan Lestrang.
Return to the world of Lelia Chan Lestrang and the Familiars, a world of adventure, humor, mystery, magic, and the occasional mundane mess.
Next is Peter Nealen with eighth book in his Maelstrom Rising series- Power Vacuum
The European Defense Council Has Fallen…
…But Peace Has Not Come to Europe
Will the Chaos Only Spread from Here?
The thunder run into Germany has left Matt’s team battered and borderline combat ineffective. The Triarii don’t have the reinforcements for them to stand down, however. Commitments in the US and the Western Pacific have stretched them thin.
And with Europe in chaos, there is no rest to be had.
Jihadis have struck repeatedly, sowing bloodshed and confusion where possible, and it appears the Turks are involved. The Russians are pushing in the east, and they may have operatives in the heart of Western Europe as well.
The European Defense Corps hasn’t stood down, either.
And a new NGO that’s arrived to help might be the most dangerous enemy of all…
You’ll love this military thriller because the action’s as brutal as the intrigue is thick!
And last but not least, John Van Stry’s first trad pub novel from Baen is up for preorder! Summer’s End
Sometimes a dark past can haunt you. Other times it just may be the only thing keeping you alive.
Fresh out of college with his Ship Engineer 3rd-Class certificate, Dave Walker’s only thought is to try to find a berth on a corporate ship plying the trade routes between the many habs, orbitals, and moons in the Solar System. The problem for Dave, however, isn’t his straight C average; it’s that his stepfather, a powerful Earth Senator he’s never met, now wants him dead.
Forced to take the first berth he can find, Dave ends up on the Iowa Hill, an old tramp freighter running with a minimal crew and nearing the end of its useful life, plying the routes that the corporations ignore and visiting the kinds of places that the folks on Earth pretend don’t exist.
Between the assassins, the criminals, and the pirates he needs to deal with, Dave is discovering that there are a lot of things out there that he still needs to learn.
But there’s one hard lesson he learned long ago that he’s being forced to remember: how to be ruthless.
Hopefully this is the first of a series of novels in that world!
All of these are great novels to kick back and read in your leisure time! I know the authors too, and highly recommend all of their books!!!
