Her new beginning is peaceful - that is, until five guests show up at the inn for a weekend, each with a hidden agenda.

Genre: YA Dystopian
Being a Sophisticate of the Program seems like it’d be a pretty sweet deal: a little genetic alteration and anyone can be smarter, faster, and stronger. It’s a dream come true. All you have to give up is your freedom.
Cleo is a Sophisticate and she has a bright future in the Program. But she has a secret. When she gets upset, bad things happen. Explosive things. Things she can’t control.
When her secret is discovered, she’s sent to the Academy to train in the military branch of the Program. She’s destined to be a human weapon in the war that’s been going on since Wormwood occurred nearly 30 years ago. She soon learns that although her ability is unique, there are others like her — other Sophisticates with lethal skills and odd code names like Archerfish and Mimic Octopus.
Immersed in a dangerous game of supernatural powers and dubious motives, Cleo doesn’t know who to trust. Ozzy, the annoyingly attractive cadet who has perfect aim in weapons class and deviant lips behind closed doors, begs her not to use her powers. He’s the golden boy of the Program, but can she trust him? Or will she find herself a target, caught in his crosshairs?

The savage murder of a bookstore employee throws Nicole into the middle of Inquisition business, like it or not. Driven by her inability to save the young man’s life, she decides to hunt the killer on her own. Using forbidden magic to investigate the past, she learns that the murderer is in fact a disease that could kill the entire werewolf race. Forced to choose between saving lives and preserving her own, Nicole embraces the magic that sent her into exile. Without werewolves, the power of the Inquisition would dwindle, and she could live without being hunted. Nicole’s only hope for success lies in the hands of the werewolves she hates and the Inquisition she fears, but finding someone to trust is only the beginning of her problems. There are those who want to ensure that the werewolves go extinct and that the Inquisition falls. But, if she fails to find a cure, her family—including her twin sister—will perish…

Tess in Boots by Courtney Rice Gager Book Description: Tess Dougherty plans every aspect of her life right down to the last detail. But she doesn’t plan on running her boyfriend off by bringing up the topic of marriage before he’s ready. And she doesn’t plan to lose her job on the day she’s set to receive a huge promotion. So when her perfect world unravels, Tess makes a new plan: disappear. Tess packs her bags and leaves her city apartment for a remote vineyard in North Carolina. At first, she’s put off by the slow pace of small-town life in the South. She’s especially irritated by Thatcher, the vineyard’s smart-mouth, dimple-faced farmhand. But she soon begins to appreciate the area’s charm, and Thatcher’s charm, too. She even swaps her trademark heels for a pair of cowboy boots. As Tess spends more time getting to know Thatcher, she finds herself loosening her grip on her old life little by little. Unfortunately, things on the vineyard aren’t as simple as they seem. There’s a secret here, and when the truth comes to light, Tess is forced to reconsider every plan she’s ever made.

When Army Captain Ben
Hawkins discovers chemical weapons missing from a military research facility, he
begins an investigation into preventing a possible terrorist attack. The

decide whether to risk his career—and possible arrest—to stop the attack, even
if it means working with a foreign agent.
D.C. Hampton’s debut novel, A
Touch of Nerves, may be set on the battlefield of America’s “War on Terror,” but
the book is a far cry from your typical action narrative. Inspired by his two
sons who served in Iraq and the Persian Gulf during the Iraq War and his own
time serving in the U.S. Army, Hampton brings depth and humanity to characters
that might otherwise be painted in the two-dimensional “hero” or “villain”
archetypes. With Hampton’s passion for history and global affairs, A Touch of
Nerves brings a fresh perspective to the long history of tension between the
United States and Iran. “I wanted to write a story that was worth
telling, realistic and suspenseful,” says Hampton. “I believe the book is
entertaining, but it also sheds light on the complex relationship between Iran
and the United States and explores the complex emotions and issues that drive
some individuals to commit terrible acts.” “The story includes a wealth
of details as Hampton weaves a complex plot,” writes Kirkus Reviews. “A
conceivable threat and suspense-filled plot keep readers engaged until the end.
Hampton eschews the genre’s typical plot holes and vague facts and his handle on
international relations gives the terrorists credible motivations.”

The Straw That Broke Book by Tom Whalen Publication Date: August 1, 2014 Publisher: Black Scat Books Pages: 172 Book Description: In his rollicking new novel, THE STRAW THAT BROKE, author Tom Whalen
continues his ENCYCLOPEDIA MOUSE series, a challenging and funny roller-coaster
ride through the outer margins of science-fiction, philosophy, and word play.
Readers who reveled in previous books in the series, such as THE CAMEL’S BACK (called “the Moby-Dick
of mice” by poet and critic R.H.W. Dillard) and ROITHAMER’S UNIVERSE (which science-fiction writer Rudy Rucker
termed “giddy fun”), are sure to greet the arrival of THE STRAW THAT BROKE with anticipation and joy. Lovers of such
visionary writers as Kafka, Borges, Vonnegut, Lewis Carroll, and Douglas Adams
(THE HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE series) also
will find a kindred spirit in Tom Whalen, as will readers of all tastes who are
looking for a thrilling literary adventure.
main “character” in THE STRAW THAT BROKE is
the Encyclopedia Mouse, who, according to the author, “is the one creature who
can save the multiverse.”In Whalen’s
synopsis of THE STRAW THAT BROKE,
“Bulwer Zetford’s work-in-progress, The Cosmic Messenger, is about to take a strange turn,
and the multiverse with it, when Roithamer of Relix “beads” once again and
brings swirling into Zetford’s Kaduza M-mon processor the Encyclopedia Mouse …
Tale twines tale as the mouse battles his Doppelgänger in cyberspace,
Heidegger, in his Black Forest hut, and a hyper-crazed Roithamer. Death is
everywhere, but the mouse, birling (if only barely) in his Binding Nexus Drive, is determined to
narrate the universes away from their demise.”
describes his style as “playful, parodic, philosophical, lyrical. I wanted THE STRAW THAT BROKE to be thick with
character and plot and at the same time alive with language.”
word play is part of the novel’s texture, as well as being embedded into the
plot and character of the mouse,” Whalen also explains. “No need for the reader
to pick up all the formal play. It’s enough that this exists on a subliminal

one volume “and eventually turned into a wide-screen baroque masterwork of
