Inspired by Hugh Howey’s world of Wool, “The Last Prayer” features… …A Different Silo, A Different Threat. In the post-apocalypse, society continues in underground silos, kept safe from the toxic world above by a simple hatch door and a strict set of rules.

For generations, an oligarchy of priests and politicians preserved their standing while the common workers lived in ignorance. When a young girl starts speaking of heaven as if it were just outside, the rigid caste system begins to crack. Sides are quickly drawn.

The only thing preventing a violent upheaval is an old priest’s confession and the child’s last prayer. But will such simple faith be enough to save them all?

“One of dystopian fiction’s masterpieces alongside the likes of 1984 and Brave New World.” — Daily Express

The first book in the acclaimed, New York Times best-selling trilogy, Wool is the story of mankind clawing for survival. The world outside has grown toxic, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. The remnants of humanity live underground in a single silo.

But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they want: They are allowed to go outside.

After the previous sheriff leaves the silo in a terrifying ritual, Juliette, a mechanic from the down deep, is suddenly and inexplicably promoted to the head of law enforcement. With newfound power and with little regard for the customs she is supposed to abide, Juliette uncovers hints of a sinister conspiracy. Tugging this thread may uncover the truth . . . or it could kill every last human alive.

Harry’s World

PI Harry Kenmare is a prehistoric private detective in an unfriendly and infinitely unjust modern world.

His life revolves around drinking, fine food, smoking, and fast women, preferably the ones he has to pay for, in cash. So what better CV for trawling through Sydney’s corrupt social and political elites, who cravenly chase power and wealth behind veneers of respectability.

In this collection of seedy episodes, Harry is a dinosaur on a mission of justice, looking to shatter the hypocritical façades. And the rules don’t always apply.

Join Harry in the jungle of 21st century Port Jackson, where little is as it seems and none of it is pretty. Except, of course, those gorgeous by the hour girls.

For more than sixteen hundred years, Nick Medea has followed and guarded the Gate that separates the mortal realm and Feirie, ever seeking in vain redemption for the fatal mistakes he made when, as St. George, he slew the great dragon. All that while, he has also tried and failed to keep the woman he loves, cursed to be reincarnated, from dying violently over and over.

Yet in the fifty years since the Night the Dragon Breathed over the city of Chicago, the Gate has not only remained fixed, but open to the trespasses of the Wyld, the darkest of the Feiriefolk.

Not only does that mean an evil resurrected from Nick’s own past, but his discovery of Claryce Simone, the latest reincarnation of his lost Cleolinda…a reincarnation destined once more to die. Nick must turn inward to that which he distrusts the most: the Dragon, the beast he slew when he was still only Saint George.

He must turn to the monster residing in him, now a part of him…but ever seeking escape. The gang war brewing between Prohibition bootleggers may be the least of his concerns. If Nick cannot prevent an old evil from opening the way between realms…then not only might Chicago face a fate worse than the Great Fire, but so will the rest of the mortal realm.

the Reluctant Vampire…

Is Jonathan Stoker a descendant of Bram Stoker, the author of vampire
novel, ‘Dracula’? He neither knows nor cares. What matters is that a powerful vampire
thought it would be a great joke to turn a man with that name.
Years later, Stoker lives on as the reluctant vampire, only emerging from the dark
shadows to suck nonlethal quantities of blood from helpless drunks. He’s on the
run from vampire kind, and hiding from his own mortal son who believes him
dead.
Each vampire has a unique ability based upon how they lived their mortal life.
Stoker smoked cigars and now he can hold his breath for an exceptionally long
time. Big deal! Scared and ashamed, he keeps to the shadows.
But he isn’t useless; nor are his powers as weak as he thinks. Stoker is part of a
prophecy and that prophecy is about to come true at the VampCon…
VampCon: a murderous congregation…When Stoker is visited by the blind vampire sorceress, Ariel Lockhart, his days of
isolation are over. Ariel  summons  him to the VampCon in Boston, a high stakes meeting
of the most powerful vamps in America. Powerful factions are studying  ancient myths and unlocking the key to the
creation of vampire kind… and to their ultimate destruction.
VampCon — it’s a cut-throat summit, a power struggle, a
murderous congregation set up by an insane vampire leader who must be obeyed.
VampCon — is where Stoker begins to learn his destiny, and the
true nature of his unique vampire power.
VampCon —  it’s a trap!
— no one in; no one out. It’s filled with bloodthirsty vampires and one mortal
— Stoker’s son.
Can Stoker, Lockhart, and a small band of troublemakers defy fate and prevent a
nightmare from coming true? It doesn’t seem likely, but Stoker’s little band
are the world’s only hope.

If you’re tired of Twilight fan fiction and second-rate Anne Rice copyists, read
VampCon for the very best of original dark urban fantasy.
