Inception meets War of the Worlds with a sassy female lead. My name is Kit Steele, and I was 10 years old when thousands of alien ships landed all over the world in the year 2020. We thought for sure that we'd be goners, about to be obliterated or terraformed out of existence. But when the ship doors opened, they were...empty. Maybe they were just communication vessels, we thought. But that night, when humanity fell asleep, we were sucked into an alternate dimension. The Dream Wars. A place where the alien ghouls fed off of your body unless you fought back. If you're killed in the Dream War, your body dies on Earth. That was 10 years ago, and I've been training for the Dream War every night since then. Each time I close my eyes and drift off to sleep, I become a merciless killer taking out as many ghouls as I can. It's earned me the rightful title of Commander, and now I protect the rich in their sleep with my team of warriors. But the one thing I didn't expect was that my new client Damien Striker might be able to put a stop to this war if I can keep him alive long enough. Meet the team: Commander Kit Steele - Carnivore, protector of billionaires, has a penchant for blue hair and anything sweet, hates cats, despises the color pink, and loves 80's rock music Medic Ronnie Sotto - Kit's best friend, graduated Harvard medical school at age 15, loves cats, favorite color pink, and once did leg surgery on a cat in the dream war to save its life Lieutenant Brisk Hutchins - Slept with Kit one time, is in love with Ronnie even though she turns him down because he slept with Kit, pretends to like cats, has one of the highest ghoul kill records second to Kit, secretly loves old Britney Spears songs Pyrotechnic expert Nox Lightfoot - Nickname "pretty boy", likes to light things on fire, thinks cats are okay, and would jump in front of a bus if it would bring bacon back 1.

New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown returns with a heartbreakingly hilarious novel about three women who had nothing in common, except their husband. Leaving one widow behind is unfortunate. Leaving three widows behind is just plain despicable. Oil heiress Kate Steele knew her not-so-dearly departed husband was a con man, but she's shocked that Conrad racked up two more wives without divorcing her first. The only remnant of their miserable marriage she plans to keep is their lakeside cabin in Bootleg, Texas. Unfortunately, she's not the only woman with that idea. Fiery, strong-willed Jamie wishes Conrad were still alive - so she could kill the scoundrel herself. But for their daughter's sake, she needs that property. As does Amanda - twenty-eight, pregnant, and still weeping over the loss of her true love. On a broiling July day, all three arrive in Bootleg...with a dogged detective right behind who's convinced that at least one of them conspired to commit murder. One momentous summer filled with revelations, quirky neighbors, and barefoot evenings on the porch offers three women the chance to make the journey from enemies to friends, and claim a bright, new beginning. 1.

The protests in front of the embassy aren't what they seem.... In the dark, primal jungles of the Congo Basin, something is ravaging the local population. When protests turn violent in front of the US embassy in Kinshasa, only the foreign policy experts paid attention. Civil war erupts, and people rip each other apart in the streets of the African capital. To avert disaster and preserve its self-image, an overwhelmed State Department dispatches a team of elite counterterrorism agents to bring their besieged people back alive. Mark Steele, a young agent within the division, and his team of gritty operatives are used to trudging through the worst society has to offer, all while operating from the shadows. But Steele's team is plunging headlong into a maelstrom of death so much worse than rebels in the streets. A highly contagious microbe is spreading unchecked, killing everyone in its wake only to bring them back again as the ravenous undead. Only a lone CDC virologist understands the extent of the outbreak at hand. He cowers among the embassy staff praying for extraction from the hands of death, fearing his part to play in the epidemic.  Follow this harrowing tale of survival, duty, love and horror as the living dead bring the world to its knees. The first installment of an epic series, End Time starts as a slow burn that turns into a breakneck-paced struggle for survival. Greene does an excellent job of depicting individual stories within the larger scope of the global epidemic. Enter the End Time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Keith Szarabajka.
