Horror

Exclusive Godsknife: Lineage by Timothy C. Ward

A handshake and folded flag do little to console the child left behind by a parent lost to war, yet when a new enemy crashes into his world, James must find the courage of his father.

On the day that changes everything, James wakes up to his usual struggles: school, basketball aspirations, and the reminder of his father’s death in service to his country. An unlikely friend will challenge him, offering a different perspective on the legacy left by those who’ve loved us, but whom we’ve lost. James doesn’t understand how one who loves you could leave you behind, but if the answer is courage, then he doubts he has what it takes to make the same kind of decision.

Yet as a new enemy rises to the surface of their world, he must use the example set by his father, and take full advantage of the life and lineage that his father saved, and he must rise to his own challenge.

Godsknife: Lineage is a short story prequel to the novel, Godsknife: Revolt, set during the events preceding that epic story. It can be read as a stand-alone, or as an introduction to the life and world surrounding one of our beloved survivors in Godsknife: Revolt.

Science Fiction

The Remnant Keeper by Robert Scott-Norton

When the dead can testify, their killers resort to desperate measures.

The Remnant Keepers are a loathed group of telepaths, paid to read the last memories of the recently murdered. Jack Winston is one of the best and hates it. Under the scrutiny of the world’s most powerful corporation, Jack is as much a prisoner as those he helps send behind bars.

But when his latest case arrives, Jack’s wife is murdered and his world shatters. Fuelled by vengeance, Jack vows to catch his wife’s killer, and as the bodies pile up, Jack realises he’s in way over his head.

If you’re a fan of Stephen King, or The X-Files, you’ll love a series that combines all of their best qualities.
