My name is Mac Brennan and thatâ€™s the only thing I can remember about myself. Not why I woke up in a dumpster. Not why my right arm is as black as pitch and covered in glowing red tattoos, and certainly not why a vicious death cult is after me.
Actually, that last part isnâ€™t true. I know why the death cult is after me. Itâ€™s because I saved that damned girl from them. I didnâ€™t know who she was at the time, but Iâ€™d have done it anyway. I just donâ€™t like it when girls get beat up, call me old fashioned.
Still, I can tell sheâ€™s hiding something behind those devilish eyes, and if I want to find out what it is, Iâ€™ll have to help her.
My name is Mac Brennan. I have no memory, and Iâ€™m a werewolf-hunting, hellfire-flinging version of Faust himself.
I live in a world where freedom doesn’t exist, and life is a battle for survival. Most people aren’t even allowed to have names.
But I had a name once. I was Allura until the Wardens captured me.
They told me I was a Nameless. That I was no one, and my sole purpose was to obey them. And, for a while, I believed them.
I spent years living underground in the channels beneath the city, dreaming of being outside again. I never thought it would happen. That I’d die in the darkness of my cell.
But then three guys show up in the channels and my fate suddenly changes.
Blaise, Ryder, and Reece are part of a secret group working to take down the Wardens and help rescue the Nameless. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I might survive.
But the outside world isn’t like how I remember. The city has become even more dangerous, especially for the Nameless. To survive, I’ll have to learn how to trust the guys and live in a world full of crime where almost everyone is hunting for me.
The Eye of Tanub
M E Cunningham
Everyone thinks she’s crazy. And maybe she is. But Lauren Marriott knows her journey into Terratir happened. It was real, and she’s writing it all down in frightening detail.
She has no patience for her brother Zach and his passion for stupid computer games until she finds a mysterious pendant in his room, pulsating with magical power. Lauren wants it, not realizing it’s a portal between this world and one of monsters, sorcerers, and dangerous quests.
Never in her wildest dreams could she have imagined what she’d find in the terrifying world of The Warlordâ€”death at every turn, but also a love stronger than time itself.
In order to escape Terratir, Lauren, Zach, and their newfound friends, must complete the impossible quest for the Eye of TanÃºb, a relic of immense power, which The Warlord has already stolen for himself.
The town of Lainwich is a bizarre place. Itâ€™s an insular community and home to a lot of strange happenings. Itâ€™s also home to the Greensmith family. Rumor has it that theyâ€™re a family of witches. The rumors are right.
Rowen Greensmith moved away to escape her crazy family. She has her own place and a job in tabloid journalism. Things arenâ€™t perfect, but sheâ€™s hopeful theyâ€™ll improve. When Rowenâ€™s Aunt Lydia calls her with news of a murder, all of that is turned on its head.
During the annual Greensmith family yard sale, Rowenâ€™s Aunt Nadine sold a chest that turned out to have a dead body in it. As if that wasnâ€™t bad enough, the woman she sold it to has turned up dead! Itâ€™s a juicy story, and once Rowenâ€™s boss catches wind of it, Rowen is put on the case.
Now Rowen is thrown back into the life she tried to escape. Everyone in the town of Lainwich remembers her, even the ones she rather wishes didnâ€™t. The only total stranger is a handsome businessman whoâ€™s new to town. Unfortunately, he has motives all his own.
If Rowen wants to save her family, sheâ€™s going to have to solve not one, but two murders. First, though, sheâ€™s going to have to deal with the police, suspicious locals, and her crazy family. Knowing Lainwich, thereâ€™s a decent chance sheâ€™s going to have to deal with quite a bit of the supernatural as well. Rowen is about to be thrown into one of the most hectic weekends of her life. Sheâ€™ll be lucky if she can make it out in one piece.
