J.W.Baccaro, Three Books in One Volume: Prophecy of the Guardian/The Coming of the Light/Piercing the Darkness

Not darkness, not light, perhaps something in between, and is claimed by the darkness…as theirs. Though being saved by the light, that which is saved must in turn save the world.

Darshun Luthais has never experienced the Nasharin Frenzy—the unbending will to challenge a stronger opponent, no matter the cost. He doesn’t know what he will transform into, has never bonded with an elemental crystal and has never seen any of the unearthly creatures his father talks about. Even though he’s an infant in Nasharin years, his life consists of nothing but constant training, striving to unlock the sleeping power his so-called accursed race is born with.

But all that changes when he is pursued by a Dream Assassin in the dead of night. What he witnesses will forever change his outlook on life, and lead him on a quest seemingly impossible to complete.

Tree of Damnation comes after the trilogy Prophecy of the Guardian, all books authored by J.W. Baccaro.  Read the wonderful guest post from J.W. Baccaro at Willowbeithe with author Q&A.

Banished from the physical planes by her own creation, Valkyrie is preparing to bring destruction upon all the earth’s inhabitants. The self-proclaimed Goddess has been observing all creation throughout millennia, seething with envy as they go about their lives, completely unaware of her suffering. It is through the Tree of Life that she sees all, sending out tendrils of influence to corrupt the naive, and gather energy from the dark deeds Mankind commits. All the while, keeping her eyes set upon one earthling in particular who understands the secrets of the universe.

Kaylis, full servant to the Vampire Mistress Shaleen, and the one who holds the key Valkyrie so desperately seeks, finds himself growing even more insistent on ignoring his warrior instinct. He knows the power inside of him is too terrible to unleash. All he wants is to be of service to the lady he loves. While it is inconceivable to Shaleen at first, in time she will learn what truly binds her to Kaylis is his unconditional love for her and just how wonderful that feels.

Breaking her may be all Valkyrie needs in order to awaken Kaylis’ power and absorb the secrets to his being. Then she can take great satisfaction in annihilating his soul.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is NOT your typical Vampire story…

Three Hardcovers Three Dollars

These books are hard covers and I found them on the cheap. I couldn’t believe it and couldn’t resist them. The only thing that disappoints me is The Hunt is a series I’ve not read. I’ve been in a mood lately and reading a lot of stuff similar to 1984. These are going to do just fine. The first two, J and The Hunt are going to be twisted dark dystopia fantasy types. Eleanor sounds really interesting and has been compared to A Wrinkle in Time. We will see.

J: A Novel
by Howard Jacobson

Man Booker Prize–winner Howard Jacobson’s brilliant and profound new novel, J, “invites comparison with George Orwell’s 1984 and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World” (Sunday Times, London). Set in a world where collective memory has vanished and the past is a dangerous country, not to be talked about or visited, J is a boldly inventive love story, both tender and terrifying.

Kevern Cohen doesn’t know why his father always drew two fingers across his lips when he said a word starting with a J. It wasn’t then, and isn’t now, the time or place to be asking questions. When the extravagantly beautiful Ailinn Solomons arrives in his village by a sea that laps no other shore, Kevern is instantly drawn to her. Although mistrustful by nature, the two become linked as if they were meant for each other. Together, they form a refuge from the commonplace brutality that is the legacy of a historic catastrophe shrouded in suspicion, denial, and apology, simply referred to as WHAT HAPPENED, IF IT HAPPENED. To Ailinn’s guardian, Esme Nussbaum, Ailinn and Kevern are fragile shoots of hopefulness. As this unusual pair’s actions draw them into ever-increasing danger, Esme is determined to keep them together—whatever the cost.

In this stunning, evocative, and terribly heartbreaking work, where one couple’s love affair could have shattering consequences for the human race, Howard Jacobson gathers his prodigious gifts for the crowning achievement of a remarkable career.

The Hunted (The Enemy book 6)
by Charlie Higson

The sickness struck everyone sixteen and older. First it twisted their minds; next it ravaged their bodies. Now the sickos roam the streets, crazed and hungry for young flesh.

Ella’s friends had told her that the country would be safer than the city. They were wrong. Now they’re dead and Ella’s all alone–alone, that is, except for her silent rescuer, Scarface. But she doesn’t even know if he’s a kid or a grown-up.

Back in London, Ed is determined to find Ella and keep his promise to Small Sam that he will reunite sister and brother. But getting out of town has never been more dangerous. It seems that every sicko in the country is coming from all directions, almost as if they’re being summoned to the capital. Will anything be able to stop the invading horde?

Eleanor
by Jason Gurley

When a terrible accident claims the life of Eleanor’s twin, her family is left in tatters, and her reality begins to unravel, dropping her in and out of unfamiliar worlds. When she returns to her own time and place, hours and days have flown by without her. One fateful day, Eleanor leaps from a cliff…and vanishes. In a strange in-between place, she meets a mysterious stranger who understands the weight of her family history: Eleanor’s twin wasn’t the only tragic loss. And unless Eleanor can master her strange new abilities, she may not be the last.

Metrophilias Book Review

Metrophilias
by Brendan Connell
Kindle eBook 107 p.

A haunting and chilling fantasy.
The horror remained after I had finished the pages as images have been burned into my mind.
Though as disturbing as it may be, the darkness of Metrophilias is both erotic and sexy.

Read it to experience it! A very different kind of literature. Horrific and sexy.

This book is a book of short stories. Each one, each city, feels like a book of its own. In depth, each one has plenty of volume to be a stand alone read. Metrophilias by Brendan Connell is written with a certain poetic charm. No matter how perverted the scene gets, the words dance melodically in a way that gives a pleasure in knowing them. There is a deeper, darker desire to continue reading them. It is a clear distinction that what is taking place is not going to be tradional yet it is wonderful and exciting to revel in the author’s work.

Product Review

Thirty-six cities. Thirty-six stories of obsession. From ancient Thebes to present day Berlin, these little portraits of humans superimposed on their suburban environment are corroding treats thrown together in a past-modern beaker, landmark tales of love in the metropolis. A round-the-world tour of craving and decadence.

Paths to Divinity Book Review

Paths to Divinity
A Collection of Tales
by Joseph DiCristofano
Paperback 154 p.
Kindle eBook 156 p.

The mystery of the mind and how each of us find ‘divinity’ or the great divine in our every day lives, can be the question here. In these short tales, for some it is a very dark place to be and each molecule of time devoted to achieving that ever so heightened feeling of ‘divinity’ can be in fact the most horrendous of all places to be.

What is Divine? Is it something ugly, or something beautiful? It must be unbearable and completely painful to reach that level. Is divine real? I think it untouchable really, and the desires of one to seek it must truly drive one insane.

Joseph DiCristofano writes a collection of short stories and titles his book ‘Paths to Divinity’. It is a dark read and there are points of defined horror scripted artfully but with great detail, and chilling to the core. These words by DiCristofano are written with a sharp tongue. This one book is complete with seven separate stories. Each story is thick with detail and richly written. In total there are 153 pages that are quickly read, yet quite notable.

I highly recommend this book to those that enjoy dark horror. 

Product Review

An archaeologist gone mad describes the unearthed secrets that drove him to insanity. The tables turn on a ‘tender-hearted’ serial killer who truly loves his victims. A mortally wounded German soldier contemplates the futility of war and love lost in the company of a tennis-obsessed Grim Reaper. A slain Spartan king is awakened by The Furies and finds his vengeance. A little girl stumbles upon a mythical garden and finds within herself the world’s salvation. Paths to Divinity offers tales grotesque and wonderful from the mind of author Joseph DiCristofano. Open this tome, and savor a journey filled with horror, magic, fear, and hope. Escape the trappings of normalcy and embrace your imagination
