Two Faces of the Jaguar

"Two Faces of the Jaguar

by George Dismukes

Many secrets are hidden within the darkness of the jungle. Behold this one about a man, a woman, a black jaguar, and an ancient Mayan legend.

When Andrea Granger was assigned to go to Honduras, ‘get inside and gather evidence’ against the DEA’s main suspect, she was determined to accomplish her mission with the same efficiency as in her previous assignments. But that was before she met her culprit, Brandon Shaw.

He melted her heart and her resolve, and so did Naja, Brandon’s 300 pound black jaguar and closest companion. She quickly discovered there was much more to Brandon Shaw than met the eye, and just as quickly, she found her mission in jeopardy. Instead of arresting him, she became determined to rescue the flawed man of the jungle. But could she successfully extricate him from the web he had tangled himself in?

As if that weren’t enough, she found that Brandon Shaw was somehow connected to a thousand year old Mayan legend which threatened to destroy everything. Unprepared, she found herself having to deal with an ancient spirit determined to kill her.

Greening of the Laurel by Kate Riley

"The Greening of the Laurel

by Kate Riley

On the 16th of March, 1244, 220 Cathars descended the mountain fortress of Montsegur, voluntarily walking into a burning pyre. Legend has it that four believers escaped the night before with the Cathar treasure, containing valuable books, documents and the Holy Grail. The hunt to eradicate the Cathars continued for decades after.

The year is now 1940, France has been invaded by Germany, and in the Languedoc countryside, 16-year old Meli Durand, has strange dreams demanding that she remember who she is. Mysterious things begin to happen to her and as she tries to unravel the mystery, her grandmother Isabel clings tightly to the family myth and secrets too dangerous to reveal.

As the war unfolds, Nazi Lieutenant Colonel Wolfgang Koch has been assigned the task of finding the fabled treasure by occult-obsessed Himmler, who is determined to present the Grail to Adolf Hitler. Failure is not an option.

In the 13th Century, an anonymous troubadour wrote a prophecy that is well known in the Languedoc. "At the end of seven-hundred years, the laurel will be green once more."

Against the backdrop of a world at war, and with the 700th anniversary rapidly approaching, Meli will need to understand her own role in a family legacy, that one person will do anything to hide and another will do anything to find.

Lydia by B. D. Messick


The Mythik Wars #2

by B. D. Messick

A long time ago, I asked someone who loved me why they were helping save us when so many humans hate us, hunt us and kill us for just being. She said everyone has a right to live, and that there is beauty in everything around us, even if we can’t see it.

Years later, someone I loved asked me why I was helping to save the humans when they do such terrible things to us. When they hate us, hunt us and kill us for just being. I told her that we needed to be more humane than they are, and that where there’s hate, there can be love. Where there’s evil, there is always good.

But after all these years, after so much pain and loss, I’m not so sure there is any saving them…or the rest of us.

The world as we know it is at a turning point. There’s a storm coming and I’m not sure any of us will survive it, but I will do everything I can so that everything that I’ve lost will not have been in vain.

Join Lydia as she treks across the devastated former United States to find Zach and Melody, but more importantly, the one person that Cain Blackthorne thinks can help save the world; their daughter Lyra.
