The Hunters:  For those who believe vampires should be killed, not kissed.

What would you do if you found your town had been infested with vampires? For Chris and his brother Lucas, the answer was simple enough: you fight back. Gathering a small band of other people in their town who have been affected by the vampires, they begin a resistance. But after a year of fighting, they have only managed to kill a handful, while the vampire leader has turned five times that many.

Then two enigmatic strangers appear, changing the group’s lives even further.

Fury and Havoc. They call themselves hunters, and want no part in this little band of heroes. Ordering them to lay low, the duo vow to rid their town of vampires. When Fury is injured, Chris aides these strangers, entwining his future with theirs.

Now that the vampires know the hunters are here, and that Chris and his friends have helped them, the group is in more danger than ever before. Lucas is torn between protecting his new family from the vampires, and protecting them from these seemingly inhuman beings who say they are there to help.

After all, what beings could be so powerful as to scare a vampire?
The Hunters has a 4.4 rating on Amazon, and a 4.2 rating on Goodreads.
Here are some reviewes

Drago: “I spent the entire night reading this (The Hunters) and I’m going to say this, because I never get tired of it: I’m grateful for this author, because in this book: vampires maim, kill, drink blood, and actually fucking die when exposed to the sun.”

Joy: “I felt like I was watching a movie ‘cause this one (The Hunters) has the makings of a good one.”

Larry: “This non-stop action packed book will keep you on the edge of your seat.”

 

The Hunted: Now The Hunters become the hunted.

Screvin groaned and tried to keep his mind focused as Havoc had instructed him, but Fury was making coffee and the smell was so distracting! He only had three weeks until the next full moon and the anxiety was killing him. Havoc said that the main focus had to be on meditation. No matter how his transformation took place, he would not be able to manage being a were if he didn’t learn to meditate.

But it was hard! Here they were, living in the woods, tracking the were who had bit him, and all of the changes were just too much. Sighing, Screvin tried to clear his mind again and focus on his breathing. Given that as a human Screvin struggled with anger issues, he could only imagine that as a were that would be a key trait in his change. That was no good. If he lost control, if he hurt… killed others… how could he ever live with that? His breathing accelerated as his heartbeat increased with the fears eating him up inside. Damn, Focus Screv! Focus only on the breathing. Only on the heart rate slowing. Let your mind go blank.

Havoc sighed next to him, and it sounded like he was disappointed. “Alright, that is about enough for today, I think.” He murmured softly. Screvin opened one eye and peeked at him. Havoc’s lips were pressed together tightly. He stood lithely and offered Screvin a hand.

“Sorry,” Screv muttered as he rose.

“It is difficult,” Havoc conceded. “If meditation were easy, everyone would do it. But unlike humans, you will need to learn it.”

Screvin hung his head. “I know. I really am trying.”

“I know. Don’t beat yourself up about it, as that will only make it more difficult.”

Fury came around the other side of the fire with two cups of coffee. She offered one to Havoc and took a sip from the other. Screvin resisted the urge to glare. He knew she was baiting him. “Any more coffee?” he asked.

Fury shrugged and tossed her head over her shoulder. “Sure, feel free.”

Screvin rummaged through the gear bag and all he could find was a tin cup. It would have to do. He lifted the coffee pot off the fire stand and sighed in annoyance when he barely managed a cup of coffee before the pot was empty. He rejoined Havoc and Fury, who were in a heated discussion. Not that they did it in front of him. But he could tell by the looks they were giving each other that they were doing the mind-talk thing again. He wasn’t supposed to know about it. As a matter of fact, Havoc denied it when Screvin had asked if they did, but Screvin didn’t just fall off a turnip truck. He had been with them pretty non-stop for a while now. The week on the road had been a clear indicator. They were having conversations without him.

He cleared his throat as he sat down. “So the trail we are on, is it still pretty fresh?”

Havoc glared at Fury before responding to Screvin. “Yes, two, maybe three days at most. We should catch up to her tomorrow.”

“Even if she is still moving?” Screvin asked.

“She is slow,” Fury commented. “I still want to know what your plan is, once we find her,” she snapped.

Screvin looked to Havoc. It was a good question. Havoc glowered at Fury and waited a beat. “We need to help her,” he insisted. Fury rolled her eyes. Screvin sighed.

“We don’t know that she needs help,” Screvin pointed out. He wasn’t entirely convinced that he wanted to help her. She had turned Doc into a were and he had killed his whole family because of her. And because of the vampires, but Screvin still blamed her.

Havoc eyed him. “I know this must be hard for you.” Screvin laughed bitterly.

“She was as much a victim of the vampires as you were,” Havoc admonished.

“But she could have waited until I passed. She waited for the rest of you. Why not me? Sure, she might not have had any control in biting Doc. We don’t know. But she didn’t bite the first person walking by. She bit me.” Screvin rubbed the healed bite at his shoulder.

“And ultimately, the vampires are more of a risk than she is,” Fury pointed out. “Whatever her role, intentional or otherwise, the vampires were subjugating his town. We should go after them!”

“Your feud with Malich has been going for hundreds of years, it can wait until we get this were and help her,” Havoc said sternly.

Fury stomped her foot and stormed off into the woods. Screvin looked after her. “Bit hot under the collar, isn’t she?”

Havoc smiled. “You will learn that Fury… has very little patience. Ironic, for an Immortal, eh?”

Screvin cocked his eyebrow at Havoc. That was the understatement of the century. “So what are we going to do when we find this girl? I mean, do you think she is just going to listen to us?”

Havoc stared off the way Fury had gone. “I have to hope. If she doesn’t…. we may have to use force. I cannot allow her to keep going as she is. Not only is she a danger to humans, and to herself, she risks exposing all weres. If we don’t deal with her, someone else will. And they may not be so kind.”

Screvin squinted at Havoc. There was so much more of this world that he knew nothing about. It terrified him, but at the same time he felt an urgent need to know more before it was too late for him. As annoying as Fury was, Screvin was glad he wasn’t alone in this whole transformation process. He was glad that he had Havoc to help him.

Life In The War Zone

kar2-1


 

LIFE IN THE WAR ZONE -PAUL WHITE

 

Life in the War Zone is not a ‘WAR’ story.

It is a collection of poignant, eye opening stories and articles, written primarily as fictional accounts, yet based on true experiences of people living and working in major war zones around the globe. Each story and article has been formed from interviews, discussions, reports and dialogues from those directly involved and affected by conflict.

Here, with ‘Life in the War Zone’, Paul White has gently coaxed from the depths of people’s hearts the truth of how destructive and debilitating the effects of war are to individuals, families and entire communities.

Each tale reflects true events; Paul has managed to elicit the emotions, the feelings and the inner anxieties of those whose accounts are represented here.

Yet he has also found stories of great courage, fortitude and resilience of human spirit strewn amongst the detritus of war.

Whilst these stories are particular to the individuals to whom they belong, the sad fact is they can easily be told by so many.

This book may be finished, but sadly the strife continues.

A dystopian thriller you have to read!

 borderlinesrelease

 

Genre: Dystopian paranormal thriller

Book Description
 BORDER LINES.
When the perfect job comes up, Charlie doesn’t think twice about taking it. This is the break he’s been looking for and nobody, not even the rest of his team, can persuade him otherwise.

The job means working for an old enemy and crossing the border into London. Both are risky, but Charlie has no idea how high the stakes really are. The team will have to confront their past, each other and a killer who is closer than they realize. But can they all make it out of the city alive?

“We all remember that kid in Piccadilly. That determined look he had on his face as he willed all those people to him. Just using his mind, he pulled them close then blew them all to pieces. It could be anyone. Your neighbour, your friend, your lover. Remain vigilant. Reachers are everywhere.”

Border Lines is the second book in L.E. Fitzpatrick’s Reachers series.

 

Excerpt

 He switched off the engine anyway and an uncertain lull settled in the car. If John wasn’t going in it meant that Rachel didn’t have to go either. She couldn’t help being tempted, it would be a lot easier than confronting Darcy.

“You can stay if you want Rach,” Charlie offered.

She shook her head, being part of the family meant taking the good and the bad. For everything good she would have to overcome something bad. She had her new shoes, it was time now to confront Darcy.

“What are we waiting for?”

Charlie’s mobility was improving by the day. The damage from the stab wounds in his back was never going to completely heal, but he was coping with the residual pain now and learning how to use his body again. Using his crutch, he made every move look effortless. He pivoted himself out of the car and swung around to open the door for Rachel.

The rain fell in heavy sheets. They were soaked before they even reached the porch. There was a makeshift door left ajar and, inside, the remains of the old chapel battled against the elements leaking through the holes in the roof. Decaying pews were haphazardly scattered as though someone had tried to shield them from the water, but the roof was in such a state now it poured just as heavily inside as it did out.

The windows on the left side of the building had survived. Their modest stained glass darkened by the absence of the sun. The right side were long gone, unable to stand the decades of storms battering the country.

It was a chapel once belonging to the Church of England and now occupied by Catholics. The effect was a strange one. The statue of the virgin and a few indistinguishable saints were perched on nearby pews, as out of place as an atheist in the house of God. Rachel inspected them with a slight fondness. She wasn’t particularly religious, but these were symbols from her childhood.

Charlie walked passed the statues. He headed into the vestry calling Darcy’s name while Rachel walked around the dark nave trying to make out the stone saints. A large, crucified Christ hung over the altar. It was too big for the size of the church, looming over the nave and scrutinising parishioners. Rachel remembered a similar icon from her childhood, and how the nuns had got so angry with her when she happened to query Jesus’ apparent Aryan ethnicity. A smile touched her lips at the memory. She glanced up at this Jesus and was surprised to see his bare black feet. Then frowned when she noticed the cuffs of his jeans. Her eyes widened as she saw a face she hadn’t seen since she was a little girl.

“Charlie!” she screamed.

Darcy was stripped at the waist. His ribs poked out of his leathery skin, an omen of malnutrition. His arms had been tied with bloody ropes to a crude cross constructed from a broken pew. There had been no rope left for his feet so instead a belt held the eighty-year-old’s legs in place. There were other marks too – burns on his chest and face, dried blood on his bruised body. How long had he been up there?

“Get John!” Charlie said.

About the Book:

West Side’s front man and lead singer, Quinn Forrester, and the band’s lead guitarist, Jeff West, were like brothers, so when Quinn mysteriously disappeared in 1989, Jeff suspected foul play.

What Jeff doesn’t know is that Quinn became a vampire that night and hid away in secret in the dark shadows of New Orleans.
 
Years later when Quinn and his daughter, Nadia, formed a nightclub act, Quinn stepped back into the local spotlight. Vampires don’t age as mortals do, so to explain that Quinn reinvented himself as his son.
 
Twenty-five years after Quinn’s sudden unexplained departure from the band, the opening of an art gallery brings Jeff West to New Orleans. A beautiful artist, Quinn’s lookalike son, a vampire tour and a series of events lead Jeff to Quinn. Will Jeff finally uncover the shocking truth about what happened to Quinn?
