New Release: Datura by LM DeWalt

This month, we’re very pleased to present the second in The Quest For Reason series – Datura by LM DeWalt. This book follows Lily as she tries to cope with the drama of finding a new family and love only to have it all taken from her by the one she had loved for so many years. While Lily is a vampire, what makes this book so real is that she has all the feelings and emotions that we all share – the desire for happiness and fulfillment but an overwhelming feeling of being totally undeserving. She’s as real as anyone we know. All the characters that DeWalt paints are as real as she is and it is fascinating to watch them all interact in a supernatural way in this very successful series. Both Lily & Datura have been released in English and Spanish. You can also find the English versions in both print and digital editions wherever you like to buy books.

Datura

After nearly a century of wandering the globe alone, Lily finally has everything she never knew she wanted, family, friends, and most of all, their love. As Lily attempts to start her new life, in the lively streets of Lima, Peru, she feels she is constantly being followed. With Ian, her first love and maker, now gone, who is left to destroy the happiness she has finally found? Someone still longs for Lily’s destruction. Vengeance or jealousy threaten to destroy her, and Lily must summon all the strength she can find to protect everything she cherishes against vampires, hunters, and witches.

The Hambledown Dream
Dean Mayes

Australian Denny Banister had it all; a successful career, a passion for the guitar, and Sonya – the love of his life. Tragically, Denny is struck down with inoperable cancer. Andy DeVries has almost nothing; alienated from his family, moving through a dangerous Chicago underworld dealing in drugs, battling addiction while keeping a wavering hold on the only thing that matters to him: a place at a prestigious conservatory for classical guitar in Chicago. As Andy recovers from a near fatal overdose, he is plagued by dreams – memories of a love he has never felt, and a life he’s never lived. Driven by the need for redemption and by the love for a woman he’s never met, he begins a quest to find her, knowing her only by the memories of a stranger and the dreams of a place called Hambledown…

We’ve Seen The Enemy
Paul Dayton

An alien ship crashes on Earth; its contents make it clear that the dead ant-like aliens inside were on an offensive mission. As humanity is presented with the prospect of their doomed world, construction begins on hundreds of World Federation ships and extrasolar defense weapons to be used in the inevitable war.

We’ve Seen The Enemy is set 700 years after the Great War and is a desperate race by a suicide team that may finally lead to the end of this interstellar war. Meanwhile, pockets of left-over human tribes on Earth have their own struggles, as they face power-hungry dictators and warped religious leaders. Behind all this are multiple alien forces, each with their own agenda. As truths turn into lies and friends become enemies, can humanity unite together to fight their common enemy?

When she meets a coven of vampires that takes her in and treats her like family, all she thought she knew is brought into question. Things are further complicated when she finally finds love – Christian, a human man. Just when she’s finally found happiness, Ian reappears, threatening to destroy everything Lily holds dear.

Crooked Moon

Crooked Moon
Lisette Brodey

As children, Frankie Cavalese and Callie Mason were best friends; but as life interfered, each went on to live in drastically different worlds. Twenty-three years later, their lives come back together when privileged Callie returns and finds Frankie still living in her childhood home, unmarried and alone, caring for her angry dying mother. As the two women reconnect, Frankie tries to forgive Callie for abandoning the friendship, while Callie wrestles with the guilt of having disappeared. To complicate the fragile reunion, Callie’s marriage is suddenly at risk, further muddled by the affections of Frankie’s playboy brother. Tensions and passions explode in the sweltering heat, and amid pain and tragedy, each woman not only ends up with a life-altering secret regarding the other, but the burning question of what to do with it.
