The War of the Nephilim

The Woodbender

What would you do if someone came for your family? What would you do if men came out of the dark, armed and capable of unspeakable evil, to take the one you love?

In a time gone by, the Earth grew green, lush, and was full of violence. Dinosaurs and men walked side by side… or one had the other for lunch! Before Noah’s Ark, people and animals ruled the earth, and not all of them were very nice.

Join Kenan, Anna, Wren, and Lidai on a journey to defend their village of Blacktree from the terrors of the White Spiders. This slaving company raids the world, attacking indiscriminately and taking women to their home nation, where evil has a free hand.

Will the young people of this backwater village be able to stop the White Spiders and rescue those who were kidnapped? Will Kenan understand the reality of God Almighty? Will Wren be able to control his actions? Will anyone ever actually listen to Lidai? And, for the love of all that is good and holy, someone please feed that racoon!

There are three kinds of dinosaurs: those that eat plants, those that eat meat, and those that men ride to war!

Action. Adventure. And a little bit of humor. Read The Woodbender: Book 1 of: The War of the Nephilim by author Tripp Berry.





Angel of the L Train

by Penelope Marzec

Angel of the L Train

Thea Ahern desperately needs a job, so when she lands a job at LetSlip, a New York City gossip magazine, she takes it even though it will mean hiding her heritage. When she helps a man who is attacked on the subway, she’s hailed as the Angel of the L Train, and people notice her striking resemblance to a once famous actress. This sparks a renewed interest in Paris Hulette and her whereabouts. What happened to the award-winning actress after her husband shot her? And is Thea Ahern really the actress’s daughter?

Thea’s coworker, John, understands what it means to hide from your past, and so he shields Thea from the ensuing media frenzy. She falls for him, and he falls for her, but LetSlip’s CEO orders John to investigate Thea. Now he has to choose between protecting Thea or losing his job.

When LetSlip’s CEO is murdered while John is in the building, John is thrust into the public spotlight along with Thea, and his past is revealed. Can Thea ever trust him again? And can he ever be forgiven for what he’s done?
