And so it begins, the disease enters on the quiet feet of The Innocents.
It invades each and every one of us.
But, they say, plagues are like fires.
At some point, they burn themselves out. Or not.
FEAR AND RUMOR CAN BE FAR MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE VIRUS ITSELF.
The EMP strike was just the beginning of it all…
Clara Thomas was a 9th grade English teacher, living a simple life at home with her sister and grandmother. She always had plans to settle down some day and become a writer. Sometimes, plans are just dreams left unfulfilled.
They thought that the widespread outage was just within their vicinity. They were wrong.
Without any electricity and power, Clara needs to help her family survive. The people in society have become restless, and will do anything for food. With the fall of power, law and order have become nonexistent, letting people get away with crimes.
Will Clara be able to be strong for her family and those around her to get them through this crisis? Will she be able to get herself through it?
Joe Rush takes on a new terror, spawned in the Amazon rain forest, that threatens to bring the world to its knees in James Abel’s latest bio-thriller, now in paperback.
While studying new forms of malaria at an Amazon gold rush, Joe Rush’s best friend and partner, Eddie Nakamura, disappears. Learning that many of the sick miners have also vanished, Rush begins a search for Eddie that takes him into the heart of darkness–where while battling for his life, he discovers a secret that may change the world.
Thousands of miles away, sick people are starting to flood into U.S. hospitals. When the White House admits that it has received terrorist threats, cities across the Northeast begin to shut down. Rush and his team must journey from one of the most remote spots on Earth to one of the busiest, as the clock ticks toward a kind of annihilation not thought possible. They have even less time than they think to solve the mystery, for the danger–as bad as it is–is about to get even worse.
Colony Two Mars: Colony Mars, Book 2 by Gerald M Kilby
Narrated by Nicol Zanzarella
The only survivor of the ill-fated ISA mission is now stranded on Mars. Having been designated a bio-hazard by Earth, any hope of returning home is all but gone. She is alone, isolated, and abandoned.
That is, until another human shows up in the main colony airlock. However, he’s barely alive and soon dies without regaining consciousness. More disturbing though, a DNA test identifies him as a colonist who has already died, several years earlier — impossible as that may be.
Nevertheless, there is only one place he could have come from, the mine on the far side of the Jezero crater — Colony Two. An outpost they had presumed was long dead. But if he survived, maybe there are others still alive?
She now has no choice but to attempt the dangerous journey across the crater to investigate. Because if she doesn’t find some answers soon, her only future is to die alone on Mars.

“This series fills the Firefly-shaped hole in my heart!”
One snarky heroine and her band of misfits up against, well, pretty well everyone else.
Indy Jackson is a stubborn space pirate with two goals in life: keep her father’s underground operation alive and hunt down his murderer.
When Indy is framed for an alien massacre, she is forced to go on the run to clear her name and attempt something dozens of professionals before her have failed to achieve: find Constellation, the Sector’s fabled battlecruiser.
Missing in action, and believed to be destroyed in the last Great War, Constellation is the only warship capable of defending the Sector against its mightiest enemy, the Blood Empire.
But the Sector is crumbling and on the brink of civil war. If Indy sides with the wrong faction, then no one will survive the Blood Empire’s onslaught. Especially not Indy, her brother, and her ragtag crew.
Will Indy make the right choice, and successfully play the Sector’s fragile politics … or will the Galaxy fall into disarray, bringing death and destruction to all?
Constellation is the first book in a fast-paced space opera saga. If you like intense stand-offs, unexpected twists, and planet-loads of hidden agendas, then you’ll love Robert Scanlon’s Blood Empire series.

The Punch Escrow by Tal M Klein
Narrated by Matthew Mercer
It’s the year 2147. Advancements in nanotechnology have enabled us to control aging. We’ve genetically engineered mosquitoes to feast on carbon fumes instead of blood, ending air pollution. And teleportation has become the ideal mode of transportation, offered exclusively by International Transport—a secretive firm headquartered in New York City. Their slogan: Departure… Arrival… Delight!
Joel Byram, our smartass protagonist, is an everyday twenty-fifth century guy. He spends his days training artificial-intelligence engines to act more human, jamming out to 1980’s new wave—an extremely obscure genre, and trying to salvage his deteriorating marriage. Joel is pretty much an everyday guy with everyday problems—until he’s accidentally duplicated while teleporting.
Now Joel must outsmart the shadowy organization that controls teleportation, outrun the religious sect out to destroy it, and find a way to get back to the woman he loves in a world that now has two of him.
