In CHASING SHADOWS: Book One in the Sisters of Shadows and Moonlight Series, you are invited to explore a secret world lying just below the surface of our own—a world where Werewolves, Faeries and Vampires live, love, and die amongst us. The race of man has come face to face with the stuff of our fondest dreams and darkest nightmares. Safe havens have sprung up to give mortals and Kine alike a place to meet, mingle, and communicate in safety. Open-minded humans or the merely curious gather in safety with the objects of their fascination. One such place is Club Mystic. Owned and run by twin sisters Mistral and Allie, it quickly becomes a hotspot for the disparate races to find each other and common ground. But would it still be considered safe if the patrons knew of the ancient feud that is rising to engulf the sisters? This is a tale of vengeance among the gods, motives as dark as the deepest abyss and one woman's path through the demons that are rising. Mistral's story is one of heartbreaking love, loss and the scars that can only be found on one’s soul. Twin sisters, Mistral and Allie, are raised apart after a devastating event strips them of their parents. Each travels a separate path: Mistral will travel with pain and battle her constant companion; Allie will venture deep into the realms of magic and healing. Having developed their skills separately, what will happen when their paths once again converge? Darkness rises and angels fall. Lessons are learned about the love you can hold for the family you've chosen as opposed to the family you were born to…no matter what species that family comes from. Loyalty is forged in the fires of frantic combat with the denizens of the Underworld while the measures and limits of love are strained to the breaking point. In Chasing Shadows you will meet Mistral—the sister who walks a warrior’s path. It reveals the iron strength of her woman’s heart to triumph over an evil that returns repeatedly to strip her of all she loves. As battles rage Mistral transforms from a lost child into a fierce woman and desperate protector; but when love comes to find her, will she battle it as furiously as the demons sent to capture her and her sister? Can this woman of shadows and combat win the most important war of all? Can she learn to let someone in and love again? Come and walk the shadowed and many times dangerous path to hidden answers along with Mistral. Open your mind to the magic of ‘what if’ and your heart to a painful journey travelled with a great strength of spirit and determination. Learn all about Mistral as she goes off Chasing Shadows

Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett Book Resume:

“An atmospheric, multilayered, sex-positive romance.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) After an awkward first encounter, Birdie and Daniel are forced to work together in a Seattle hotel where a famous author leads a mysterious and secluded life in this romantic contemporary novel from the author of Alex, Approximately. Mystery-book aficionado Birdie Lindberg has an overactive imagination. Raised in isolation and homeschooled by strict grandparents, she’s cultivated a whimsical fantasy life in which she plays the heroic detective and every stranger is a suspect. But her solitary world expands when she takes a job the summer before college, working the graveyard shift at a historic Seattle hotel. In her new job, Birdie hopes to blossom from introverted dreamer to brave pioneer, and gregarious Daniel Aoki volunteers to be her guide.

Chasing Davis by James Luce Book Resume:

When author James Luce was a boy, his father once summarized his moral philosophy of life in one sentence: Your rights end at the tip of my nose. Many years later, after embarking on his own voyage of reflection, Luce finally understood his fathers words. In Chasing Davis, he shares a set of unique ethical tools and blueprints that can be conceived and implemented by either societies or individuals, ultimately creating a moral life solely guided by logic and science rather than superstition or belief in divine guidance. Luce believes it is time for a new genesis of moral living. He relies on several decades of research and contemplation as well as ancient and newly acquired wisdom as he carefully examines the difference between good and evil, the importance of self-awareness, and the reasons that morality is not dependent upon the existence of any god. Seekers of the truth and new ideas will learn the meaning and consequences of perception, as well as how to train ourselves to think more productively and morally and why laws, government, and religions are symptoms of our immorality. Chasing Davis provides a practical, objective set of behavioral and cognitive guidelines that will help anyone live a moral life, regardless of individual cultural, religious, or philosophic antecedents.

Journey by Moonlight by Antal Szerb Book Resume:

An NYRB Classics Original The trouble begins in Venice, the first stop on Erzsi and Mihály’s honeymoon tour of Italy. Here Erzsi discovers that her new husband prefers wandering back alleys on his own to her company. The trouble picks up in Ravenna, where a hostile man zooms up on a motorcycle as the couple are sitting at an outdoor café. It’s János, someone Mihály hasn’t seen for years, and he wants Mihály to come with him in search of Ervin, their childhood friend. The trouble comes to a head when Mihály misses the train he and Erzsi are due to take to Rome. Off he goes across Italy, wandering from city to city, haunted and accosted by a strange array of figures from the troubled youth that he thought he had left behind: There are the charismatic siblings, Éva and Tamás, whose bizarre amateur theatricals linked sex and death forever in his mind; Ervin, a Jew turned Catholic monk who was his rival for Éva’s love; and again, that ruffian on the motorcycle. Antal Szerb’s dreamlike adventure, like Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita, is an intoxicating, utterly individual mix of magic, madness, eros, and menace. In the words of the critic Nicholas Lezard, “No one who has read it has failed to love it.”

CUCKOO'S EGG by Clifford Stoll Book Resume:

Before the Internet became widely known as a global tool for terrorists, one perceptive U.S. citizen recognized its ominous potential. Armed with clear evidence of computer espionage, he began a highly personal quest to expose a hidden network of spies that threatened national security. But would the authorities back him up? Cliff Stoll's dramatic firsthand account is "a computer-age detective story, instantly fascinating [and] astonishingly gripping" (Smithsonian). Cliff Stoll was an astronomer turned systems manager at Lawrence Berkeley Lab when a 75-cent accounting error alerted him to the presence of an unauthorized user on his system. The hacker's code name was "Hunter"—a mysterious invader who managed to break into U.S. computer systems and steal sensitive military and security information. Stoll began a one-man hunt of his own: spying on the spy. It was a dangerous game of deception, broken codes, satellites, and missile bases—a one-man sting operation that finally gained the attention of the CIA . . . and ultimately trapped an international spy ring fueled by cash, cocaine, and the KGB.

Chasing the North Star by Robert Morgan Book Resume:

In his latest historical novel, bestselling author Robert Morgan brings to full and vivid life the story of Jonah Williams, who, in 1850, on his eighteenth birthday, flees the South Carolina plantation on which he was born a slave. He takes with him only a few stolen coins, a knife, and the clothes on his back--no shoes, no map, no clear idea of where to head, except north, following a star that he prays will be his guide. Hiding during the day and running through the night, Jonah must elude the men sent to capture him and the bounty hunters out to claim the reward on his head. There is one person, however, who, once on his trail, never lets him fully out of sight: Angel, herself a slave, yet with a remarkably free spirit. In Jonah, she sees her own way to freedom, and so sets out to follow him. Bristling with breathtaking adventure, Chasing the North Star is deftly grounded in historical fact yet always gripping and poignant as the story follows Jonah and Angel through the close calls and narrow escapes of a fearsome world. It is a celebration of the power of the human spirit to persevere in the face of great adversity. And it is Robert Morgan at his considerable best.
