I was alive, then I was dead, now I’m stuck somewhere in between.
My name is Icarus Fell. I am a harvester.
The archangel Michael brought me back to collect souls and help them on their way to Heaven--that’s what a harvester does. If I get enough of them before the bad guys do--if I do a good job--I can have my life back. Now people I knew in life are dying, killed by a murderer’s knife, their bodies defiled, and the cops think I’m the killer.
I’m not, but I think I know who is.
But how does a dead man, a man who no longer exists, stop a psycho? I’m not sure, but I’m going to stop him before everyone I know is dead.
I have to stop him before he gets to my son.
Roseline Enescue didn't ask to become an Immortal, to have all of the guests at her wedding slaughtered, or be forced into marriage with a man whose lust for blood would one day ignite the vampire legend.
Willing to risk everything for a chance at a normal life, Roseline escapes to America. Terrified her husband Vladimir will find her, Roseline enrolls as a senior in Chicago's elite Rosewood Prep school. Mingling with humans is the last place he would look for her.
But her transition into the human world isn't easy. Mortal men flock after her while cutthroat girls plot her demise. Yet Roseline remains relatively unfazed by the petty hysteria until she falters into the arms of Gabriel Marston, reluctant MVP quarterback, unwilling ladies man, sensitive artist in hiding, and blah, blah, blah.
Troubled by the bond that pulls her towards the mortal boy, Roseline tries to ignore him, but Gabriel is persistent. As their lives entwine, Roseline begins to realize that Gabriel is much more than he appears. His ability to toss a football the entire length of the field and grind concrete into dust pales in comparison to the glowing blue cross tattoo that mysteriously appears on his forearms.
Despite the forbidden bond between them, Roseline can't help wondering what Gabriel is: He's not human. He's not Immortal. So just what is he?
Jason works for Nexus, a secret vigilante organization. He’s a Mind Bender and can implant thoughts into the minds of others. He's both a prodigy and a rising star.
But when he’s forced to take down an old friend and learns Nexus's darkest secret, he must ask himself what he believes in. And if it’s worth turning against the woman he loves.
Introducing Bernie Trumble, renegade. Born in a world ruled by women, where women direct commerce, make the laws, create the art, and dictate fashion – while frustrated males stay home to wash socks and wipe runny noses.
The Making of Bernie Trumble pits one man against the system. Bernie is an outcast because he thinks, unlike most people in his world, that males and females should have equal opportunity for growth and fulfillment. Bernie risks everything – family, friends, job, and self-esteem – in a stubborn attempt to find happiness by closing the gender gap. Maybe a transgender operation is the answer. Or maybe not.
Bernie’s odyssey takes him to extremes, plunging him into one adventure after another. Like Dorothy in the Land of Oz, he meets a lot of interesting people along the way – and some of them aren’t so nice. But through it all, this humorous fantasy pokes fun at the real world and gives a surprising look at gender in society, where the roles of men and women are not only unequal, but totally reversed. The result is at times sad and maddening, as the reality of gender inequality is exposed in all its nasty detail – but the tongue-in-cheek flair helps ease the pain with every guilty chuckle.
