Grown up fans of Percy Jackson and Twilight will enjoy this blend of mythology and romance set in the modern world. No one is allowed to love her, except the god who cursed her... Hope Nicholas is done running. Apollo's curse has ruled her entire life, limiting her choices and robbing her of the love that matters most. But she refuses to live in fear any longer. In fact, she's ready to do whatever it takes to break the god's power over her existence. When the goddess Artemis instructs Hope to impersonate a demigod and infiltrate a conservatory to get access to the Olympian library, she doesn't hesitate. With Athan's betrayal, there's nothing left to lose. Once inside, Hope discovers the only way to get what she needs is to work with her sworn enemies. But Xan, the son of Ares, is not at all like she expected. As the lines between demigod and monster are crossed again and again, Hope has to dig deep for the courage to accept her fate or fight for the freedom to save herself. Demigods and Monsters is the second book in The Sphinx series.

New York Times bestselling author Walter Mosley delivers two speculative tales, in one volume, of everyday people exposed to life-altering truths. The Gift of Fire In ancient mythology, the Titan Prometheus was punished by the gods for bringing man the gift of fire—an event that set humankind on its course of knowledge. As punishment for making man as powerful as gods, Prometheus was bound to a rock; every day his immortal body was devoured by a giant eagle. But in The Gift of Fire, those chains cease to be, and the great champion of man walks from that immortal prison into present-day South Central Los Angeles. On the Head of a Pin Joshua Winterland and Ana Fried are working at Jennings-Tremont Enterprises when they make the most important discovery in the history of this world—or possibly the next. JTE is developing advanced animatronics editing techniques to create high-end movies indistinguishable from live-action. Long dead stars can now share the screen with today's A-list. But one night Joshua and Ana discover something lingering in the rendered footage...an entity that will lead them into a new age beyond the reality they have come to know. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Beatrice Alexander is no ordinary schoolteacher—she can move objects with her mind, an embarrassing skill she hasn't yet mastered or embraced. After nearly killing her brother by accident, she joins the F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad, the Federal Response to Extra-Sensory and Kindred Supernaturals. This top-secret branch of the FBI combats ghosts, ghouls, and other monsters threatening humanity. With her teammates—among them a handsome former-detective werewolf and an annoying Don Juan vampire who's dead-set on seducing her—Beatrice investigates her first case. Disgustingly dismembered bodies have turned up, bearing bite marks of the undead. Someone—or something—is raising a horde of hideous, bloodthirsty zombies. Armed with Bette, her trusty machete, Beatrice takes on the master of the flesh-devouring corpses, who's guarding a horrifying secret... Featuring a team of monster hunters with unique paranormal abilities, the F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad Investigation series combines humor, suspense, and supernatural crime-fighting. Praise: "The most engaging detectives to face the walking dead since Scully and Mulder. Part urban fantasy, part police procedural, and entirely marvelous, monstrous fun."—Library Journal "If Donald Westlake had ever gotten around to writing a paranormal mystery, it would have sounded like this. Harlow's genre debut is funny, creepy and refreshingly brash."—Kirkus Reviews "Jennifer Harlow's debut novel had me laughing and gasping from start to finish!"—Victoria Laurie, New York Times bestselling author of the Ghost Hunter Mystery series and the Psychic Eye Mystery series "Wonderful! A gritty, dramatic police-procedural with a compelling heroine and a fascinating group of sidekicks. Looking forward to the sequel!"—Karen Chance, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Cassandra Palmer series "Mind Over Monsters is funny, scary, and creepy—and ridiculous amounts of fun!"—Kat Richardson, author of The Greywalker Novels "Mind Over Monsters is a non-stop rollercoaster ride that fans of urban fantasy will love! Fast-paced, fun, and wildly entertaining, Jennifer Harlow has given the paranormal police procedural a fresh spin with her loveable machete-wielding heroine. A quirky cast of characters and sharp writing make Mind Over Monsters a wholly wonderful debut. I can't wait to read more!"—Jeannie Holmes, author of Blood Law and Blood Secrets "With its breezy style and exuberant sense of fun, this monstery mystery is a total delight!"—Carolyn Crane, author of Mind Games and Double Cross "Wildly fun and funny, Harlow offers treats for every paranormal lover to relish, with plenty of action, thrills and laughter."—Leanna Renee Hieber, award-winning, bestselling author of The Strangely Beautiful series "In her funny, fast-paced debut, Jennifer Harlow gives us an urban fantasy that sharply blends murder-mystery and horror, and introduces us to a world where the monster in your closet really does exist. Using both humor and logic to help solve a grisly double-murder, reluctant heroine Beatrice Alexander is a woman you can (and do) root for as she struggles to control her powerful telekinetic gift and to find her place in this brave (and sometimes scary) new world."—Kelly Meding, author of Three Days to Dead
