A secret branch of the U.S. government has found pyramids on Callisto, a Jupiter moon. They are etched with ancient hieroglyphs that no one can understand -- no one but archaeologist Kaden Jaxx. What's more, the pyramids are giving off energy. Lots of energy. Enough to power half of the United States. But Jaxx discovers his Black Ops bosses are hiding an Earth-shattering truth -- an ancient civilization may still be on that moon. And a secret launch to that moon is imminent. Jaxx hires a brilliant but impulsive reporter who digs into the agency's mandate. When they learn too much, the hunt is on: they're on a government hit list and are now trapped in a race against time to blow the lid off the secret plans, save themselves, and maybe even mankind.

Zoey and Coda are like everyone else in their small town of Gladstone, but that's about to change - forever. Zoey has a dream, one that feels far more real than it should. A strange wolf with a beautiful, violet crystal embedded on his forehead visits her. "Please help us," the wolf implores with sad eyes. "Remember, Zoey, who you truly are." Zoey wakes up, dismissing it as a silly dream. However, she soon realizes that it was far more real than she could have ever imagined. Coda is Zoey's older brother. Like most boys his age, he has a craving for adventure and a loathing for his younger sister. He can't stand it that she constantly gets in his way, joining in on all of his fun while ruining it in the process. The worst, according to Coda, is that Zoey gets all of the attention from their parents. A big drag in his mind. Then destiny arrives. Zoey and Coda find that they must face it together - if they want to survive. Together, they journey to a place deep in the Cornell Forest, beyond the Snow Tree and through a blackberry bush, to a secret portal that leads them to an ancient world called Ohm Totem - to the place of the PureLights, the race that beckoned for their help. There, Zoey and Coda find that they hold something so unique, so magical, and so sacred within themselves that even those who called for them never fathomed how powerful these two children really are. Caught between an age old war and finding their way back home, Zoey and Coda go on an amazing adventure that takes them beyond the veils of everything they once knew, and into the terrifying grasp of the unknown.

When the Ixionic alien race arrived on Earth in the twenty-first century, they offered mankind a chance to save the planet. Their scientific miracles reshaped the world, but so did the unstoppable disease they carried. With no other choice, humanity abandoned its only home and sought refuge on the newly terraformed moon. For two hundred years civilization was rebuilt. That all changed when an Ixionic ship crashed on the outskirts of Tranquility. Mankind's scourge has returned and Carter Ryan is infected at birth. Daily injections are needed to keep him alive and the lunar colony safe. His twenty-first birthday brings military conscription and new knowledge of the Ixion. A heroic act saves the colony but he is asked to conceal his actions. Keeping this secret sets off a chain of events that reveal there is more to his disease than he knows. To learn the truth, Carter will be forced to answer what, or who, he is willing to sacrifice. J. M. Deutsch gives readers a different kind of origin story in his debut novel, In Remembrance of Home. It's a twisting narrative that warns the greatest dangers are those with consequences we choose to ignore.

A sunken treasure. An ancient Biblical artifact. A mystery as old as humankind. On January 25, 1829, the Portuguese brig Dourado sank off the coast of Indonesia, losing its cargo of priceless treasures from the Holy Land. One of these lost relics holds the key to an ancient mystery. But someone does not want this treasure to come to light. When her father is murdered while searching for the Dourado, Kaylin Maxwell hires treasure hunter and former Navy Seal Dane Maddock and his partner Uriah "Bones" Bonebrake, to locate the Dourado, and recover a lost Biblical artifact, the truth behind which could shake the foundations of the church, and call into question the fundamentally held truths of human existence. Join Maddock and Bones on a perilous adventure that carries them from the depths of the Pacific to ancient cities of stone as they unravel the mystery of the Dourado. Praise for David Wood and the Dane Maddock Adventures "Rip roaring action from start to finish. Wit and humor throughout. How soon until the next one? Because I can't wait." Graham Brown, author of Shadows of the Midnight Sun "What an adventure! A great read that provides lots of action, and thoughtful insight as well, into strange realms that are sometimes best left unexplored." Paul Kemprecos, author of Cool Blue Tomb and the NUMA Files "A page-turning yarn blending high action, Biblical speculation, ancient secrets, and nasty creatures. Indiana Jones better watch his back!" Jeremy Robinson, author of SecondWorld "With the thoroughly enjoyable way Mr. Wood has mixed speculative history with our modern day pursuit of truth, he has created a story that thrills and makes one think beyond the boundaries of mere fiction and enter the world of 'why not'?" David L. Golemon, Author of Ancients, Event, Legend, and Leviathan "A twisty tale of adventure and intrigue that never lets up and never lets go!" Robert Masello, author of Bestiary and Blood and Ice "Let there be no confusion: David Wood is the next Clive Cussler. Once you start reading, you won't be able to stop until the last mystery plays out in the final line." Edward G. Talbot, author of 2012: The Fifth World "I like my thrillers with lots of explosions, global locations and a mystery where I learn something new. Wood delivers! Recommended as a fast paced, kick ass read." J.F. Penn, author of Desecration "Dourado is a brisk read, reminiscent of early Cussler adventures, and perfect for an afternoon at the beach or a cross-country flight. You'll definitely want more of Maddock." Sean Ellis- Author of Into the Black "All the adventure, twists, and surprises you could hope for in an action series." Kane Gilmour author of Resurrect

In 1849, British archaeologist, Austin Henry Layard, uncovered over 20,000 clay tablets in the Ancient Sumerian city of Nineveh, in an area now known as Iraq. The tablets told of an ancient race that had come before humans, arriving on Earth long ago and bringing with them untold technologies, and a mass genetic breeding program that the tablets claimed to have brought forth the creation of humankind. And then these Beings left, taking with them everything they had, except the human race. The problem is, they took some of us. And, those whom were taken have not returned, and have all but forgotten about their past and that these Beings had ever existed. These humans are now thriving someplace else...alone. Or, so they thought. They are about to be in for a rude awakening.
