Kiss Me Deadly
Marjolaineâ€™s imagination in 1700â€™s France got her into more than enough trouble before she met Durante. He became her whole world, whisking her away to see places she had only dreamed of. Forever with him sounded like a fairytale, but the truth was far less attractive. Now, an old rival is using her human attachments as bait for a coup. All their lives hang in the balance while Marjolaine fights to save the boy who reawakened her heart from her own deadly kiss.
The Purge of Babylon
ONE NIGHT. THAT WAS ALL IT TOOK.
Creatures that once lived in the shadows, hidden from humankind, have risen, spreading like a plague across the globe over the course of a single night. Their numbers growing exponentially through infection, these seemingly unkillable creatures have swallowed up whole cities and collapsed unprepared governments.
Survivors call it The Purge.
Against all odds, a disparate group of survivors has emerged from that blood-soaked night that devastated the planet and reduced humanity to an endangered species. Among the survivors are two ex-Army Rangers, a businesswoman, and a third-year medical student. But surviving The Purge was one thing – staying alive is another matter entirely.
Hope exists in the countryside, in the form of a self-sustaining underground facility designed to withstand any calamity. But in order to reach its safety, the survivors must travel hundreds of treacherous miles, with the night – and the creatures that dwell within it – always at their backs.
The rules are simple: stay out of the dark, load up on silver bullets, and whatever you do, stay alive.
The road to salvation has begun …
