THE LATEST BOOK NEWS FROM RICK GUALTIERI
MANKIND IS NO LONGER THE DOMINANT SPECIES
When Harrison Kent suggests an outing to a remote campsite in Colorado, his friends are all eager for a few days of fun and adventure. What awaits them, though, is far more than they ever bargained for.
They learn that Sasquatch is real, but these are not the shy creatures of legend. A madness has claimed them, erasing their once peaceful nature and leaving in its wake a ravenous horde of monsters that’s about to descend upon the unsuspecting residents of a remote town.
But the woods hold more than one secret. The cast of a low budget reality show is filming in the area and they have information that could even the odds. Harrison and his friends will need to team up with them for a desperate last stand against the rampaging beasts. Because if not, they’ll all learn what it truly means to be at the bottom of the food chain.
For five years my life has been a living breathing hell – literally. Worst of all, I don’t remember any of it. We’re not talking some vague blackout here, no, this is full-on comic book levels of amnesia. But now I’m back, only to find the whole world managed to survive without me. Some hero I turned out to be.
There’s no time to wallow, though, not when I’m surrounded by pissed off dryads and vampires who’ve somehow figured out how to walk in the sunlight. I’ll need to get my head back in the game before they do something stupid, like trigger Armageddon – again.
Thankfully, I’m not alone. With an equally confused former vampire by my side, as well as a baby minotaur and my wizard ex-boyfriend, I’ll have to contend with the forces of Hades that are hot on my tail. I’ve been given a second chance at life. Now to make sure I don’t die before I can actually enjoy it.
Bill Ryder’s past and present are about to collide. His girlfriend’s been marked for death by the immortal temptress who wants him. One’s a witch and the other’s a vampire, which means the chances of them talking out their problems over tea are slim to none.
It’s bad enough Bill’s too distracted by evil leprechauns and redneck werewolves to put a stop to it, but now something massive has been spotted prowling the waters of the Hudson – a harbinger of biblical proportions, forewarning of dark times to come.
With a tidal wave of chaos closing in, Bill will need to choose between his friends, his feelings, and the fate of the world. Sadly, there’s little hope of saving everyone he holds dear from the carnage that’s about to punch him and his love life right in the moby dick.
Being a blind girl in a big city is tough. But dying and waking up as a blind vampire, well, that’s a trip. With my senses now dialed up to eleven, the world is open to me in ways I never imagined possible, allowing me to hear a pin drop from a block away or traverse rooftops and alleyways with ease.
One doesn’t need eyes to see that not all is right in New York, though. I’m not the only monster in town, and most of the others are far less friendly. I’ve taken it upon myself to clean house, to reclaim the shadows and give the predators a name to fear, my name – Char.
Sadly, I’m a lone warrior against an ever increasing tide of darkness, one which has turned its sights on my loved ones. I’ll have to dig deep to save them while also putting my faith in a wizard I have no reason to trust. I’ve never been much of a team player, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes to prove to my enemies that they picked the wrong family to mess with.
