Zero Hour: Part 1 of 4 (Department 19, Book 4)

Zero Hour can either be read as a full-length ebook or in 4 serialised ebook-only parts. This is PART 1 of 4 (Chapters 1-13 of 63).

Department 19 still stands against the darkness. But for how much longer? Book 4 in the explosive series from bestselling author, Will Hill.

As Dracula continues his rise, the men and women of Department 19 wait for good news. But hope is in short supply - the country is beginning to fall apart as the public comes to terms with the horror in their midst; a cure for vampirism remains years, even decades away; and their supposed ally Valentin Rusmanov has not been heard from in weeks.

Jamie Carpenter and his friends are working hard to keep the forces of evil at bay, but it is beginning to feel like a lost cause...Until familiar faces from the past bring news that could turn the tide. News that takes Matt Browning to America on a desperate search for a miracle, and sends Jamie and Larissa Kinley into the darkest corners of eastern Europe, where something old and impossibly powerful waits for them.

Something that could stop Dracula for good.

But the clock is ticking.

Night is falling. And Zero Hour is almost here...

The Splitting Earth (Zukopal Book 1)

Rok loves to meditate, and is building a private temple away from the castle so he can find peace from the bustle of family life. There is only one rule: the temple must be made of materials only from the earth, nothing else.

That won't be a problem. Not for him. Because Rok isn't a normal little boy. No, not at all. He is a demigod: a quarter of the blood in his veins is the blood of the gods. His heritage grants him power over the earth and its many elements--over stone and soil and the deep, dark, hidden ores. Just like his three siblings, Rok has a unique magical power.

However, it isn't all meditation and peace in Zuuland. Unknown to Rok and his family, his father's vengeful brother Labec lurks in the shadows with his two children, Coltin and Menga. Uncle Labec is consumed by the desire to steal the greatest treasure of Rok's father, King Nyark: the ZUKOPAL, a mysterious and powerful opal ring that shimmers with all the colors of the rainbow.

But it isn't just power Uncle Labec seeks. His motivations run far deeper. Labec is the yin to King Nyark's yang. He seeks a balancing of light and dark, and even more--revenge for past wrongs. Will Rok and his siblings be able to bring peace between their father and uncle? Or will the Zukopal drive them even further apart?

Pre-order Zukopal 2.0: The Four Elements; which continues the story told by Rok's three other siblings - to be released July 14 and available for pre-order! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D5GG5HJ

Embassy Row: Before the Fall: Arrival

Don't miss this free, bonus short story from New York Times bestselling author Ally Carter's brand-new series, Embassy Row.

Product Description:

Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:

1. She is not crazy.

2. Her mother was murdered.

3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.

As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her - so there's no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door, who is keeping his eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.

Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can't control Grace - no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do. Her past has come back to hunt her . . . and if she doesn't stop it, Grace isn't the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.

See: Whispers of the Damned: Ghostly Games

I never had a problem with ghosts, with anything paranormal. It's part of the teen angst that frames my life. Don't get me wrong--I'm not hung up on some romantic gothic cliche. I'm not even trying to say I have supernatural powers. I just see what you can't. Hear what you can't.

My truth? It's easier to believe in the dead, trapped by demons and freed by angels, than the fantasy of ordinary life circling in loops of routine as the one and only reality.

There's a war of survival lurking in the unseen. Some of it's internal, some isn't.

When I understood darkness was feeding on those trapped, I had a moral hitch. Was it survival of the fittest, or the beginning of the end?

Standing up for the wretched cost me everything.

My story begins now.

And now we have the compelling, enigmatic, character driven thrill ride of the long reaching contemporary fantasy series Web of Hearts: Insight, See, & Edge.

You know; the one every kid in class avoids, just in case what I've got is catching.

Not that I care.

See, there are worlds other than this one.

Kids who love diggers, construction trucks and castles will love this story of King Kind and Super Servant Stevie.



The people in King Kind's kingdom are enthralled at the building of the excavator. They have never seen anything like the mighty machine that the king is building. The army thinks the excavator will be be used for battle. The peasants believe the excavator is a large rodant that will destroy their crops. Super Servant Stevie despells those fears and informs the people of the kingdom that the excavator will dig dirt to build the moat.

While at the feast, the castle dancers make up a special digger dance to celebrate the completion of the excavator. The castle band, 'The Excavators' make up a song called "Dig Dig Digger". The castle chef makes a special dirt colored casserole. And to top off the feast, the bake bakes a dump truck cake for all to enjoy.

From Readers

"This book reminded me of why I love reading: I get to experience things I never could in real life.

I imagine this book being like a mix of the movies Treasure Planet and Aladdin, if that makes sense. Great movies. Though the imagery in a book can never live up to those movies without slowing the pace to a grinding halt, he gave just enough to remind me of those worlds." - GoodReads Review

"An action packed, well-paced journey into a new world. While it stands on its own (and could easily be a continuing series) I am eagerly anticipating what comes next in its companion series, Dorian Delmontez." - Amazon Review
