Firemancer Collection

The Firemancer Collection includes Books 1, 2 and 3 from the Fated Saga Fantasy Series: Awaken, Shifting and Embrace.

Summer fun is coming! And other than turning thirteen, twins, Meghan and Colin Jacoby, are looking forward to a typical summer… well, typical for them. Which means their uncle (and guardian) will pull into the Cobbscott Campground and park his travel trailer for three full months.

Normally, they’d never spend more than a couple weeks in any one place, their uncle preferring to move around. But only until summer when they’d be Cobbscott bound.

Why did he do this every summer? Why did he prefer to move around? The twins have never thought to ask.

Their only concern being that their friend Sebastien would be in Cobbscott as well… the one person who also happens to know their secret- that they can read each other’s minds.

Arrival at the campground goes as expected and within hours, Meghan and Colin are already making plans to meet up with Sebastien. But before they do, the campground gets some unexpected visitors.

Visitors with reserved campsites. Sites that have been reserved, but unused, for years.

The twins always wondered who reserved and never used these campsites and now that they have seen the owners, the twins can’t help but get an ominous feeling.

These visitors dress strange and act strange, taking hikes into the woods wearing winged tipped shoes and overcoats, disappearing into things clearly too small to fit so many people, and they never stop peering into the sky as if expecting to see something terrible.

And when unexplainable and frightening events follow their arrival, the twins start to realize that this summer, will be their least typical of all…

Threads That Bind

by Brant Williams

At 16, Madison has accepted herself for who she is: smart and witty, but overweight with thick glasses and the social life of a Tibetan monk. Everything changes the summer before her junior year of high school when her eyesight inexplicably corrects itself, and she begins to rapidly lose weight. However, her new look comes with an unexpectedly expensive price. Madison’s first kiss with the boy she has had a crush on for years triggers powers she can’t control, almost killing him.

She discovers she is a Berserker, a powerful being chosen to guard the world from the Havocs, ancient creatures brought into our world by magic thousands of years ago. They cause destruction and death, but cannot be killed. Only the Berserkers’ life-blood can bind – and free – the Havocs. One Havoc is free and wants Madison’s blood to free another. Instead of enjoying her new look and popularity at school, Madison must now work with the Berserkers to master her powers and bind the Havoc before it kills her.

Oh, and if that weren’t bad enough, it turns out she is the first female Berserker since, well – ever.

Doing Bizness: A Nuclear Thriller

by Mary Mycio

Kiev, 1992: After the USSR’s demise litters the landscape with nuclear weapons and radioactive materiel, warhead expert Anton Zvezda goes AWOL in disgust when his strategic bomber base mutinies against Moscow and declares loyalty to newly independent Ukraine. His only comfort after the Soviet Union’s collapse is his Russian Orthodox faith. But when signs of the Apocalypse threaten his church, he puts his skills to work on a terrifying plot.

A modern tracking system could stop him and smugglers like the nuclear inspector with a secret stash of bomb-grade uranium. It would also help a couple of American military contractors do some business and keep their jobs. But while Washington bureaucrats block their efforts, Iraqi spy Tariq abu Bakr is in Kiev to shop for a Bomb – on pain of death — until the brilliant and beautiful Sveta learns the secret that can thwart his plans and achieve her ambitions.

Their paths collide against exotic and dangerous post-Soviet landscapes, where talking cars hide Red Mercury, mad monks meet messengers from God — and the clock ticks on a nuclear bomb in Istanbul. Will Brother Boris be able to stop it?

Extra Credit Epidemic

by Nina Post

When a brilliant yet reclusive high school student uncovers a small cluster of foodborne infections, she teams up with a former state epidemiologist turned science teacher to investigate, but as the cases start to multiply, she realizes that she’ll need more than just her sharp intellect to find the source of the outbreak.

Taffy Snackerge is a high school senior who likes doing things her way. Gifted in science, she’d rather analyze infectious diseases and pick up a girl for the occasional fling than deal with her boring schoolwork or the high school social scene. When she notices a surprising number of cases of food poisoning in the area, she’s eager to dig in and find the cause.

To help with the investigation, Taffy approaches the only teacher she’s ever liked and respected, Van Brenner. As a former state epidemiologist, Van is uniquely qualified to help Taffy get the data and insights that she needs. However, Van has one condition: Taffy needs to work with two other students on the case, and she doesn’t get to pick them.

As the cases start to multiply and the underfunded state health department continues to drag their feet, Taffy knows that it’s up to her to find out what’s making so many people sick. But can she learn to work with her two teammates — including a beautiful, hyper-organized girl who’s president of the Young Attachés Club and an emotional overeater who can’t go out in public without his lucha libre mask — while still retaining her autonomy? Can the team fend off a snooping assistant principal and step up when the adults let them down? And can they locate the source of the outbreak before it reaches epidemic proportions?
