Marcus Barber is a two thousand-year-old immortal who works as a bounty hunter for powerful entities of the ancient world. When not pounding the pavement as a private investigator for mortal clients, Marcus chases down missing mythological creatures for the Ancients.
In the heat of San Antonio, Marcus must search for Nemesis’s missing griffin while trying to rescue a melting ice pixie from an eccentric collector. His adventures put him on the trail of a cult of Ereshkigal who have kidnapped a Daughter of Freyja. While roaming the sprawling metroplex, Marcus gets tasked with obtaining Chaac’s lightning axe from the grasp of Tawhaki. Given tight deadlines by all of the Ancients who treat Marcus as a pawn in their games, he enlists a friend’s help but must hide the strange events and creatures from his mortal friend’s awareness. On top of the Ancients’ requirements, Marcus gets a call from an assistant district attorney who wants him to track down a missing mistress … who Marcus has his own, very distant past with. By leveraging his stubbornness and honed skills, Marcus must accomplish everything in twenty-four hours to keep his immortal soul away from the Ancients.
Welcome to Monsterland—the scariest place on Earth.
Wyatt Baldwin's senior year is not going well. His parents divorce, then his dad mysteriously dies. He’s not exactly comfortable with his new stepfather, Carter White, either. An ongoing debate with his best friends Melvin and Howard Drucker over which monster is superior has gotten stale. He’d much rather spend his days with beautiful and popular Jade. However, she’s dating the brash high-school quarterback Nolan, and Wyatt thinks he doesn’t stand a chance.
But everything changes when Wyatt and his friends are invited to attend the grand opening of Monsterland, a groundbreaking theme park where guests can interact with vampires in Vampire Village, be chased by werewolves on the River Run, and walk among the dead in Zombieville.
With real werewolves, vampires and zombies as the main attractions, what could possibly go wrong?
Accused of being a terrorist, a fugitive physicist takes flight in a gritty future world where the government has gone insane.
Rob MacAulay has followed the flight of seabirds all his life, as well as the elusive nature of quantum field theory. He is a brilliant physicist, famed for solving the Unity Theory, a tall, gentle man with glasses and a tweed jacket.
And he is framed as a terrorist.
Now, on the run from the police and under the steamroller of politics, MacAulay is on a flight of his own. As the EU fractures around him, MacAulay learns that his scientific reputation means little when the world is out to get him.
Thomas Heddiman, technical consultant with the police, finds himself both running with the fox and hunting with the hounds as he pursues MacAulay. But the tall, gentle physicist is an odd bird … and capturing him doesn’t go as planned.
Award winning author R.A. MacAvoy (Tea with the Black Dragon, The Book of Kells) joins with artist and storyteller Nancy L. Palmer to present a tale of the possible future: human anger, human compassion, and a man who turns out to be a very unusual bird indeed.
