In The Shadow Of The Earth

by J.P. Borders

Science meets magic, and the true nature of reality is revealed!

What if reality isn’t as rigid as we think it is?
Professor Jim Canter was tormented by memories of his devastating failure as a physicist. The experiment that should have proven his radical, world-changing theory had instead ended in universal accusations of fraud and deceit.

What if the laws of physics are flexible?
Clinging hopelessly to the remnants of his shattered career, he is forced to consider an incredible idea proposed by a mysterious new graduate student. Mika convinces him to try a final experiment, one that could show an unprecedented link between reality and the human mind, opening the door to possibilities beyond anything Jim had ever imagined.

What if science really can explain magic?
The outcome leads them both into a terrifying confrontation with an organization of ancient, undead creatures dedicated to keeping these secrets for themselves, and who may present an even greater threat to all of mankind.

What if the gods actually did exist? What if they still do?
Now they must race against time to find a way to protect themselves from an enemy that cannot be seen or touched, one that has been preparing for untold thousands of years.

by Cameo Renae

The beginning of the end. The Apocalypse.

A nuclear fallout wiped out every living thing on the planet, except for a few thousand of us who took shelter in underground bunkers across the globe. Now, after thirteen long years, we were finally able to return to the topside to begin to rebuild.

We thought we were alone. We were never more wrong.

Before the fallout, scientists had worked on creating an anti-radiation vaccine (ARV). The first two attempts failed, but despite the incomplete tests and results, the government approved and distributed the third serum to the masses in an effort to aid those who had no shelter.

It worked, keeping those who remained on the topside alive, but it also altered and mutated them. This new and infectious threat had completely outnumbered us. Now, we not only had to rebuild our planet. We would have to fight for it.

My name is Abigail Park. I’m seventeen, and this is my story.
