The dreaded Necronomicon, a book of fable said to contain all the ancient knowledge of the Sumerian civilization has surfaced and fallen into the hands of four teenagers in a small Texas town. Tonight, after years of studying its dark teachings in secret, they gather to call back to Earth those Gods that tried to enslave humanity over ten thousand years ago, and in turn become rulers themselves.
Under threat of his life, Tristan helps them complete the ritual; but does that mean it is too late to stop this apocalypse? With Evelyn, whose past and future seem inextricably linked to Tristan, their friend Hunter and a host of surprising paranormal helpers, Tristan will race against murderers, monsters, and time itself to shut the ancient gate before our evil creators are upon us again.
The Shana Black Series.
Shana Black isn't really a typical young woman. In fact, she is training to be an officer in the U.S. Army at West Point, a college and military training post in New York. She does a heavy course-load and earns her degree all while participating in military training; but if she thought her life was busy before, she's about to receive a shock.
Shana has decided to major in chemistry, and her junior year research project has earned her the huge honor of the Youth Inventor's Award. More importantly, it can help prevent terrorist attacks which are becoming more prevalent in the U.S. The bad news: now the terrorists know who invented it. Finding herself at the top of a large terrorist organization's hit list, she is taken into protective custody by the CIA, but will that even be enough to protect her?
Join Shana in her new life in which she must defend herself, her school, and even her country from the terrorists targeting her, all while trying to get her chem homework turned in and make it to weekend training.
Lisa Taylor has been writing since she was only nine years old. Moving around the country as a child, books were her constant friend and learning new things was her favorite pass time.
At eighteen years old, Lisa was accepted to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. She graduated in May of 2010 with a degree in physics. During her time in the military she traveled all over the world. Unfortunately, she was soon medically discharged from the military, and after a short time at graduate school, she began to publish her writing.
Her debut novel, The Hour of Tiamat and the poetry anthology Book of Dreams and Nightmares are currently for sale. She also publishes an action series of short stories for Kindle, the Shana Black series, through Trestle Press. She lives in Kentucky with her sister and two beautiful Border Collies, and she is currently writing the first book of her upcoming fantasy trilogy The Crystal Chronicles.
