Synopsis of Dreamweaver

Against all odds, Weaver and his friends have found a way to stop the Dream Eater from laying waste to the Shield’s northern outpost. Despite the days of peace that follow, in his heart, Weaver’s certain that all is not well; that a destructive force, so great in its efficiency, could not have been silenced so easily. When the storm clouds, at last, begin to brew, and waves of chaos begin to break upon the Shield, Weaver and his friends are thrust into a plight unlike any they could’ve ever imagined.

The polar vortex has grown stronger with every winter, ravaging northern cities, and forcing an evacuation of a major city until springtime.  Firefighter Captain Jack Sellars and his men are contracted to protect the city with one mandate: don’t let the city burn down.  With no power or gas, and all the citizens gone, what could possibly happen?  But when an SUV flips over on a snowy freeway with a body, an AK-47, and diamonds inside, Captain Sellars and crew have reason to be concerned.  They stumble upon rival gangs of thieves and murderers looting the city and are cut off from communication, isolated in a frozen world.  In the midst of a gang war, the city begins to burn.  The firefighters, dedicated to saving lives, have little choice but to take them, in a daily struggle to survive.  For Captain Sellars, keeping his sanity and his men alive in a savage environment will require a miracle, and he’s running out of cigarettes.

All Faye Donehoe wanted was someone to love. At 18, she married her high school sweetheart and fulfilled the only goal she ever bothered to set: leaving her claustrophobic hometown in the sunset for the excitement of Washington, D.C. Five years later, she’s a war widow in love with her employer, Jimmy Quinn. Older and wealthy, he’s also very married to an aloof goddess with secrets of her own. Though Faye succeeds in capturing Jimmy’s attention, she finds happiness comes at a staggering price.

Throw in a nosy grandmother, an eccentric cousin, along with Jimmy’s skeletons and it’s no wonder Faye’s life is spinning out of control. After a lifetime of poor choices she faces her most difficult one yet: living the “American Dream” or walking away from the life she always wanted.

A New Day at Midnight – #Published #MustRead

HAPPY NEWS!

Bookkus Publishing has published its 5th book, A New Day at Midnight by the wonderful Michelle Hiscox. This is an exciting second romance to the Bookkus catalogue of books and another title that is sure not to disappoint. Chosen by the community to be published at 4.5 stars. Buy it on Bookkus Store and Amazon. Distribution should be kicking in the paperback in 4 weeks or so.

Synopsis of A New Day at Midnight

A New Day at MidnightWhen Merik Hearne finally lays claim to the woman that betrayed him, she inspires much more than his need for revenge—but is her love worth dying for again?
Condemned to play host to a demon, scarred Romani leader Merik Hearne has amassed a fortune with only one goal in mind—to possess Hannah Worthington, the traitorous beauty that has eluded him for over a decade. With an exchange of coin, everything he has been striving for is within reach but nothing is as he imagined. The tender, sharp-tongued woman he encounters tests the bounds of his convictions and he is torn between the promise of reckoning and longing for a love that once destroyed him.
Exchanged for a purse of gold and informed she is to be a slave, Hannah vows she has not survived a lifetime of loss only to whither under the likes of Merik Hearne. And she will do everything she can to make sure he knows it. Despite his overbearing manner, his fierce scars, and her own determination to escape him, she begins to see that something beautiful might lie beneath…something that belongs only to her. She must discover the angle from which the great lord plays before his dark desires consume them both.

As they struggle to find truth amid pasts marred by sorrow and secrecy, they are unaware that a vengeful apostle orchestrates the rise of a forgotten god—and the end of their chance at a life together.

This author is absolutely captivating. Emotion, suspense, fantasy. Everything a great book needs. I would like to read more works from this author and highly recommend this one. -Ellsie Brooks

 

Synopsis of The Agony of the Gods:

Who is killing the Gods?
Man created The Machine. The Machine gave to each man or woman a world of their own design, to do with as they pleased. They became Gods – omnipotent, absolute rulers; but also vain, arrogant, hedonistic and brutal.

Now someone is killing them.

The enforcer, a servant of the Gods, is tasked with finding the killer, but first he must train a new apprentice. Given a list of worlds to investigate, they set out trying to find a key to the identity of a killer they cannot hope to overcome. In their travels they come across worlds dedicated to the study of butterflies, to the perfection of music, to eternal war, and to a magical storybook existence where animals talk and act like characters from a children’s story; and on each world they find a brutal disregard for the people who serve the Gods.

As the death toll mounts, and the pressure from their masters to find the killer increases, they learn more and more about the strange universe of The Machine, and about themselves. But soon they face the ultimate question: is the killer a monster…or a hero?

Reviews of Demiurge

Shawna – “SEER [renamed Demiurge] has an amazing plot from start to finish. I don’t intend to spoil anything, but from the opening chapters you think you know what the book’s about. But then Michael rips that theory out of your mind with a new twist and you’re sitting there thinking, “Wait, I thought that was the plot… Where’s he going to go from here?” I found myself wondering about the characters and direction when I was cooking, cleaning, driving, going to sleep, and at a rock concert. (Shame on me.) But it was an amazing plot! There were many characters, and I love the way they either stuck around or quickly met their demise. I can’t even begin to say how pleased I was with the introductions and exiting of characters, and Michael’s ability to throw a character away when he’s done with them, instead of sentimentally holding on to them and over exploiting their role. Some of the characters roles were so subtle that it would be easy to miss their true role in the plot if you weren’t paying close attention.”

Ellsie – “I’m sad to say I have finished the entire book. I didn’t want it to end. A page turner to say the least. This is one of the few books I have read in a very long time that I absolutely could not figure out. Meaning, no matter how hard I tried, I could not guess the ending or how the author would write it out.”

Michelle – SEER [renamed Demiurge] is very, very well done. I too have read/reviewed the work on another site, and have seen a steady evolution of the manuscript as it became something exceptional. The description used pulls up a vivid picture relating to setting and events, which makes it easy to visualize where the characters are and what’s happening around them. I think the players involved are successfully characterized, as what they want and feel is well illustrated and I found myself empathizing with them and wondering what was going to happen next. What struck me most upon reading this work was the attention to detail regarding the plot, which I am assuming is the result of much research and careful planning. My opinion is that Michael has done a great of job of making his story what it is.”

Synopsis

The renowned archaeologist, James McKenzie, has uncovered many prophecies, each with a mysterious symbol accompanying their inscription. Now, edifices of this symbol are reappearing, not engraved in aged rock, but painted in blood above the victims of a serial killer, and the fanatical cult he serves. Detective Hassom is charged with the task of making sense of this slaughter and capturing the perpetrators.

Corruption, collusion and the discovery that Lucas, a strangely gifted eight year old orphan, is the primary target of the murderous cult force Detective Hassom and  Professor McKenzie to work together to solve the murders. In their efforts to protect Lucas and reveal the ultimate goal of the cult leader and how this relates to the final, revelatory prophecy discovered in Iran, they unearth a truth, more terrible than anything they could have feared.

About Michael Hagan

Having lived in Temecula, CA, and Belfast, Northern Ireland, where he was born in 1970, Michael R. Hagan now resides with his family of four in the idyllic town of Dromore, Co. Down, a short distance from its impressive Norman Mound…a shorter distance from the home of the town’s famed home-made ice-cream.

Possessing a long-suppressed passion for literature and fascination with history; after a career in high value sales and property development, he now reflects on how more beautifully romantic than the life of a hungry business person, is the concept of a starving artist.
