Scavenger Hunt

 

“I already know all your names.

As for me… you can call me Mr. Do-Good.”

 

Five strangers have woken up in a white room. A room with no doors, no windows.

 

A room with no hope.

 

“5 stars!” Sci-Fi & Scary

Because these strangers have been kidnapped, drugged… and brought here as the newest contestants in the world’s most high-stakes scavenger hunt.

 

A GREAT story that kept me guessing until the end… it will not be a story that you will want to put down!” – The Genre Minx

 

Run by a madman named Mr. Do-Good, the game offers only two options: win or die.

 

“Unputdownable!” – Fundinmental book reviews

 

All they have to do to survive is…

 

complete every task…
on time…
and not break any of Do-Good’s rules.

 

“An entertaining, action-packed read.” – Morbidly Beautiful Reviews

 

Playing the game will bring the players to their breaking point and beyond. But play they will, because Do-Good has plans for these strangers, and their only chance to live through the night is to discover what’s really behind his Scavenger Hunt.

“If you want excitement, don’t miss this one.” – Monster Librarian

Darkling Smiles

A “chilling collection of eight tales… as scary as they are satisfying…” (Publisher’s Weekly)

 

A family that wins tablet computers at a deal to good to be believed…

A man who is sent across the universe, only to discover the most dangerous world in existence…

A hitman who realizes that his greatest contract is going to be himself…

A man whose child has been targeted by a cult, and must decide what he is willing to do to save those he loves…

Michaelbrent Collings brings you eight tales of people whose lives — and sometimes deaths — have fallen into decay.

Tales of the ordinary and the extraordinary, the outrageous and the banal. Tales of lives bright, lives dim.

Stories of a universe fallen, where every happiness has its opposite, and every smile will be inevitably darkled

The Sword Chronicles: Child of Ash

THE STUNNING CONCLUSION TO THE SWORD CHRONICLES TRILOGY!

Her friends are gone. Ansborn is dying. And there is only one place Sword can go: to the Gods.

Planning to destroy those responsible for the deaths of her friends and the destruction of Ansborn, Sword will descend into a world unlike any she has ever known. Aided by the two most dangerous enemies she has ever faced, she will climb below the clouds that have hidden Ansborn from the world for a thousand years. And she will kill anyone and anything she finds.

But Sword does not know the truth: that Ansborn is a construct of a great nation that passed away a thousand years before she was born. That the world she knew is a vast experiment; a second chance for a lost race.

Sword is about to face the greatest enemy she has yet encountered. An enemy that has lived for countless generations. An enemy that has destroyed all who dared challenge it. An enemy that Sword must defeat; for she is the last hope of Ansborn, and of every living person.

She is Sword, and only she . . . can save the world.

The Darklights by Michaelbrent Collings

From #1 bestselling horror novelist

and multiple Bram Stoker Award finalist MICHAELBRENT COLLINGS

comes a trip into the farthest reaches of fear…

 

***

I am a FixIt.

 

When the Company has a problem – a factory gone under, books that need auditing, or a rebellious planet to be destroyed – I’m there, and I take care of it. I’m the most successful FixIt in Company history, and I have NEVER failed to punch a ticket.

 

TF-653 is different. The staff and crew of a terraforming installation on a planet so strange it cannot be described have disappeared. It’s my job to go there, to find the problem, and to stop it. Or kill it.

 

But some things can’t be killed. Because some things are already dead.

 

And some things… are even worse. Because some things can only be seen in THE DARKLIGHTS.

Peter & Wendy: A Tale of The Lost

Peter & Wendy: A Tale of The Lost


 
Eve is the girl who has nothing.
 
She never knew her father. Her mother is an alcoholic. She goes to one of the roughest schools in the country, and every day there is a study in torment: she’s been slashed with knives, burnt with cigarettes butts, and worse. Her life is one of constant fear, constant pain.
 
Until HE comes.
 
On the day the most handsome guy Eve has ever seen starts coming to her school, she somehow knows everything is going to change. And it does. He sweeps her off her feet. He makes her feel beautiful. He makes her feel loved. He makes her feel… SPECIAL.
 
The only problem is that he wants to murder her.
 
Because he is a vampire. A vampire named…
 
PETER PAN.
 
Eve is the great-great-great-granddaughter of Wendy, the first human girl Peter ever fell in love with, and who fell in love with him… right before he killed her.
 
Peter wants make Eve his own as well – to give her his heart, make her fall in love with him, then drink her blood as he has vowed to do to every girl born of the Wendy line. And Peter he is a near-invincible creature of super-human strength, inhuman cunning, and ageless desire. He has marked her as his, so his she will be, body and soul.
 
Eve’s only hope lays with James Hook, vampire killer and sworn protector of the Wendy line.
 
Like Peter, James has lived a long, long time in the shape of a young man. But where the Pan lives a life of dangerous pleasure and beautiful death, Hook survives in a world of scars and shade. His face and body have been slashed and crippled, and still he continues: he will protect Eve however he can, whatever the cost.
 
But Eve isn’t sure she WANTS to be protected. Because for the first time, Peter Pan may actually be falling in love. For the first time, Eve has found not one but two people who fight for a place in her heart.
 
For the first time, Eve is on the verge of truly becoming one of The Lost…

The Sword Chronicles: Child of Sorrows

The Sword Chronicles: Child of Sorrows

Sword thought it was over…

She thought that when she killed the Chancellor and ended the corrupt reign of the Emperor, that everything would get better. That the suffering would end in Ansborn. That the people would be free.

But now a new terror has been born. A trio of warriors who live only for vengeance, who know only hate, have set their sights on Sword and on those she holds dear. They are powerful, they are deadly, and they are impossible to kill.

And worst of all, they are but harbingers of what is to come. Because after a thousand years, the unknown enemy that lies below the mountains of Ansborn is at last on the move. And it is coming for them all.

Death from among them.

Death from below.

And only one person – one Sword – has any chance of stopping it.

The Sword Chronicles: Child of the Empire

The Sword Chronicles: Child of the Empire

A kingdom will fall by the sword…

She is a Dog – one of the many children and teens across the empire of Ansborn who have been sentenced to fight in the arenas. There they fight in battle after battle until they die for the sport of the people of Ansborn – an empire built atop the peaks of five mountains.

But one day she picks up a knife… and everything changes.

She discovers she is a Greater Gift – one of a handful of magic users with powers so great they have only two choices: to join the Empire as one of its premier assassins, or die as a threat to the Empire itself.

She is no longer a Dog. Now, she is Sword. And she will soon realize that in this Empire, not all is what it seems. Good and evil collide, and she can never be sure whom to trust – not even herself.

She holds life in her hands for some. Brings death by her blade to others.

She is a killer.
She is a savior.

She is Sword.
