PAYBACK – NEW ALTERNATIVE HISTORY NOVEL

BY MICHAEL FITZGERALD PUBLISHED BY MOONSHINE COVE

Payback is great for alternative history fans as well as crime enthusiasts and those interested in World War Two.

It’s a novel filled with disaster and possibility that changes the course of world history.

What if Hitler had been assassinated before World War Two? Who would fill the power vacuum? Who would take over in Germany? How would Mussolini react?

Payback is a fast-paced novel involving two assassins, the gangster Bugsy Siegel and an undercover FBI agent. They travel to Italy for Hitler’s state visit in 1938 to kill him, with additional help from the anti-fascist Mafia.

In the aftermath of the assassination chaos ensues as the Nazi leaders are unaware of the dramatic changes taking place in Germany during their absence. Mussolini makes new plans of his own in the light of the events.

Payback has been described as “one of the best ‘what if?’ novels since ‘Fatherland,”(Kim Kinrade, author of “Rockets of the Reich”)  “a great read with an amazing plot that kept me always wanting more,” (David Avoura King, author of “Hitler Out of Time”) “strong characters and surprising twists and turns,” (Sandra Saidak, author of “From the Ashes”) “a first-rate thriller that keeps the heart racing to the very last page.” (James Thayer, author of “S-Day”).

Underland

Long ago, before humans forgot them for all eternity, monsters and immortals retreated below ground to seek shelter. But what do the Greek Gods do when they’re bored? They bring back the Olympic games–only a lethal version. The newest contender in these bigger, deadlier games is a young human girl they kidnapped from the streets above. For Kira Lier, it’s kill or be killed as she races against beasts she thought were just myths, to cross the finish line and win a chance to earn her freedom.

Lost Girl

Wendy doesn’t remember anything about Neverland—or the experiments done on her there as a child. Seven years later, all she wants is a normal life, but shape-shifting shadows plague her dreams and turn her life into a waking nightmare. When the shadows attack at a football game and a boy disappears right in front of her, she realizes these wraith-like shadows are real. They’re not just haunting—they’re hunting.

A mysterious boy named Peter, his foul-mouthed sidekick, and a band of misfit boys intervene before Wendy faces a similar fate. But can they trust Wendy enough to take her to Neverwood Academy and reveal all of their hidden secrets when she’s hiding a secret of her own, or will the dreaded Red Skulls find her and drag her back to Neverland?

Plane Walker (Book 1 of the Manus Dei Trilogy)

The Manus Dei system proved that a deity exists.
The universe was changed forever.
Mankind desires equal footing with the God.
The God seeks to abandon mankind.

After his wife dies during childbirth, Lazarus’s life takes a turn for the worst. Addictions and neglect spread across the years as Lazarus focuses on the Deity as the apex of his frustration. During a freak accident, his daughter Elisha disappears. At his weakest point, Lazarus’s last memories of his daughter are erased, leaving him stranded with no clue of her final whereabouts.

On a final whim of desperation, Lazarus locates the last Manus Dei system in existence, hoping to use the machine to find the memories he has forgotten in life. But not without harsh repercussions.

Will Lazarus find Elisha? Or will he succumb to the terrible consequences of using the Manus Dei? Will Lazarus’s ulterior motives turn his daughter’s rescue mission into a war against the God?

Reinventing the face of science fiction and blurring the lines between genres and styles, Plane Walker will leave you enthralled and begging for more – intensely hoping that Lazarus will find his daughter Elisha while harboring feelings of both dread and suspense.

Welcome to the future. Embrace the unknown.

TRISOMY XXI

Sixteen-year-old Joshua Allen was born with an extra chromosome—a genetic aberration known as Trisomy XXI, or Down Syndrome.  When a serious accident leaves him in a coma at the hospital, Joshua receives a mysterious injection that endows him with supernatural powers.  The transformed teen is linked to a string of bizarre, unexplained deaths that have the town’s sheriff and the coroner completely baffled. But when a ghastly creature from another planet lands on Earth and begins its hunt for Joshua—viciously slaughtering anyone in its path in order to complete its deadly mission—Joshua and his friends are thrown into a world of terror.  What follows is a horrific life-and-death struggle with the seemingly-indestructible extraterrestrial being. The salvation of an entire race of aliens hangs in the balance…

 Trisomy XXI is vivid, imaginative, and unputdownable. Resplendent with twists, turns, chills, thrills and a pulse-racer of a plot, Trisomy XXI will leave readers breathless. Richly-drawn characters, meticulous plotting, and a sensational storyline make for an intelligent, evocative, electrifying novel.  An extraordinary new voice in the world of horror fiction, novelist G.A. Minton delivers a spinetingler of the highest order in his debut novel, Trisomy XXI. 

TRISOMY XXI by G.A. Minton has been judged and named a Benjamin Franklin Digital Award SILVER HONOREE by the Independent Book Publishers Association (the IBPA is the largest publishing trade association in the United States), describing the novel as “A very creative story. . .an interesting use of the human genetic syndrome. Seemingly, a way to help all Trisomy XXI humans.” TRISOMY XXI received this prestigious award based on exceptional content, design, and use of technology.

“Trisomy XXI is a fun, exciting science fiction adventure. The writing is spectacular, and author G.A. Minton has a great talent for describing his scenes and characters in vividly colorful detail.  Minton’s ability to drive the story across the genres makes for decidedly entertaining reading.  I highly recommend this book to teens and adults who are fans of adventurous science fiction!” –  Paige Lovitt for Reader Views.

“The popular trend of adding science fiction elements to horror goes well beyond jumping through portals as is evident in G.A. Minton’s Trisomy XXI.  Minton offers up a compelling, frightening, and surprisingly touching genre blend that both horror and sci-fi readers will enjoy.” – Becky Spratford for The Reader’s Shelf at Library Journal Reviews.

“I enjoyed Trisomy XXI by G.A. Minton and I hope to read more of his novels in the future as they portray a great writing style!” – Chris Kyle (sixteen-year-old book reviewer from READER VIEWS).

“Author  G.A. Minton’s Trisomy XXI is a book with an exciting and unique premise that will keep readers turning the pages from the very beginning all the way through to the very end. I definitely enjoyed Trisomy XXI. Author G.A. Minton has made a bold choice in choosing a young man with Down Syndrome as the protagonist of this book, and has done a great job at making him so much more than just a stereotype of someone with a disability. This read had action almost from the very beginning and will definitely be able to keep readers on the edge of their seats, even gasping with surprise at times. Any reader who enjoys a great work of horror should definitely grab Trisomy XXI. I am pleased to recommend this book, and will look for more from author G.A. Minton in the very near future!” – 5-STAR Review by Chris Fischer for Readers’ Favorite

“I absolutely loved this book and everything about it. G.A. Milton created a well-rounded small town full of the usual characters one would find in any small town USA. Little do they realize they are soon to be at ground zero for a series of bizarre events. The characters are believable and comfortable. The events are mind bending but flow logically through each twist and turn. I never saw what was coming next but enjoyed the ride!” – Goodreads 5-STAR Review

This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a daring plan that grants four men enormous resources to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection from Earth and Trisolaris alike. Three of the Wallfacers are influential statesmen and scientists, but the fourth is a total unknown. Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer and sociologist, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he’s the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

Be held hostage to the fast action and intrigue in Book Two of the controversial eco-thriller series (a 2014 RONE Award Nominee and cover award winner)

Seth Rogan was a bad spy. That’s because he wasn’t a spy at all. Just a guy trying to do the right thing.

Professor Habershaw’s Fairy Tales For Grown-Ups

 

The world-famous Habershaw Traveling Sideshow Company makes its way to various small towns. No one really sees it coming but somehow the show makes its way to your hometown one evening in June. Having lost your job, you find the HELP WANTED sign to be both convenient and enticing. You already love oddities and sideshows, so becoming an assistant to the infamous Professor Harold J. Habershaw would be a dream come true. He’s a rather eccentric gentleman, and it seems there’s no reason for you to second-guess your decision. That is, until you discover his latest sideshow attraction appropriately called, “PROFESSOR HABERSHAW’S FAIRY TALES FOR GROWN-UPS.”
Each tale has been carefully collected by Professor Habershaw himself for many years. Some stories are good while others would shock the most timid person.

Be warned, my friends. Anyone who enters this particular attraction never exits, and there’s a reason. Professor Habershaw’s always on the lookout for new muses for his ever-growing collection of bizarre fairy tales.

And if you’re not careful, you could become his next greatest story yet to be told.

The Alecto Initiative

Life was never easy out in the Methuselah Cluster, the most remote region humanity ever settled, but when her alcoholic father found her a ‘job’ while he went off-planet to look for work, 11-year-old Loralynn Kennakris began to learn just how ugly it could get. Within the year, her employers sold her to a brutal slaver captain, who took from her the last thing she owned: her name.

Most girls in Kris’s position last a year or two. The strong ones might last four. Kris survived for eight before she was set free, thanks to the Nereidian League Navy.

Unfortunately, eight years growing up in Hell prepared Kris for nearly everything but freedom, and her new life isn’t at all what she imagined. Not only must she find her way in a bewildering society full of bizarre rules, but the very people who rescued her think she’s a terrorist plant, a beautiful interstellar celebrity is complicating matters in more ways than one . . . and now someone is trying to kill her.

Beltamar’s War

Malmaxa-100x160.jpg

Utterly obedient to Six Divine Laws, the Seizen are an ancient culture whose history covers almost four millennia.

On their second entry into Malmaxa all Seizen undergo the final rite of passage to adulthood, in which they are bound to a Chukrah in the Eternal Match. The Chukrah bond is fateful, permanent, personal, and so sacred it is deemed to be an inviolate personal secret. Indeed, beyond the clearly visible color of every Chukrah, a societal tenet prohibits disclosing the unique nature of one’s Chukrah.

Unbeknownst to the Seizen, they are on the verge of extinction. An Eternal Conflict with a mysterious, ancient enemy has seen their numbers dwindle from millions to less than fifty thousand at the time in which Beltamar’s War is set.

The Scribes, a rare subset of the Artisan class, are the only Seizen aware of these dire circumstances. However, their role as lore-keepers is Chukrah-granted. This understanding ensures they obey the tenet of secrecy, thus the Seizen have remained oblivious to their impending demise.

Until an un-matched child named Liaju has a series of prophetic dreams.

Until now…

The Martian

themartian.jpg

“Andy Weir’s masterpiece!” (Tom Hanks, Twitter)

“Watney’s gallows humour and his brushes with death as he uses every ounce of his intelligence and astronaut’s training to claw his way out of the pit will have you laughing and gasping by turns. I read this book in a weekend. I didn’t think I’d have the time to – but Andy Weir’s edge-of-the-seat storytelling didn’t leave me any choice.” (Richard Madeley, Richard and Judy Book Club)

“Andy Weir’s terrific ‘lost in space’ novel is an absolute page turner from first to last … Tautly-written, full of extraordinary and fascinating detail about life in a frozen red desert so far from home, The Martian is one of the best thrillers either of us has read in years. Highly recommended.” (Judy Finnigan, Richard and Judy Book Club)

“The best book I’ve read in ages. Clear your schedule before you crack the seal. This story will take your breath away faster than a hull breech. Smart, funny, and white-knuckle intense, The Martian is everything you want from a novel.” (Hugh Howey New York Times bestselling author of Wool)

“Accomplished…believable but suspenseful as [Watney] battles against the odds for survival” (The Guardian)

Book Description

The Sunday Times bestseller and soon to be a major Ridley Scott movie starring Matt Damon

A Song of Ice and Fire

A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) by George R.R. Martin

Printed gameofthrones

George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series has become, in many ways, the gold standard for modern epic fantasy. Martin–dubbed the “American Tolkien” by Time magazine–has created a world that is as rich and vital as any piece of historical fiction, set in an age of knights and chivalry and filled with a plethora of fascinating, multidimensional characters that you love, hate to love, or love to hate as they struggle for control of a divided kingdom. It is this very vitality that has led it to be adapted as the HBO miniseries “Game of Thrones.”

Steemjammer: Through the Verltgaat

Steemjammer: Through the Verltgaat by John Eubank

Kindlesteemjammer

STEAMPUNK MEETS URBAN FANTASY IN THIS INNOVATIVE DEBUT ADVENTURE NOVEL.

On the edge of a small Ohio town stands an enigmatic house that looks like a window into earth’s past, as if various phases of history have been frozen in mortar and masonry. Crowned by a towering industrial smokestack and surrounded by fields of wheat, nobody knows what to make of it.

Fifteen-year-old Will Steemjammer is aware that his family’s lifestyle is far from normal, that no one else has a home cluttered with dangerous steam-powered machinery. His neighbors stare at his house with suspicion, kids his age call him a freak, and his family avoids electricity like the plague. Will knows his secretive father is hiding something big, but when he summons the courage to demand answers, his father mysteriously vanishes – just as his mother had a few months earlier.

After Will and his little sister, Angelica, tear apart their house to find clues, they discover more than they bargained for. Will and his family are exiles from another world, one that runs on steam power and seemingly impossible technology. In this other realm the Steemjammers have powerful enemies, and their entire extended family is in danger. With the help of his eccentric relatives, Will must use the infamous Steemjammer intelligence and resourcefulness to fight back, or he may never see his parents again – and his enemies may become unstoppable.

STEEMJAMMER THROUGH THE VERLTGAAT by John Eubank

“A gripping story. Wonderful imagination. Steampunk at its finest.” –John DeChancie, author of the Castle Perilous series, the Skyway series, and two Castle Falkenstein books.

The Dimidium Angelus, as the children are known, fight the forces of evil through thousands of years in order to keep their parents bound.

Lone Wolf Rising

lwrLone Wolf Rising by Jami Brumfield

Kindle

Revenge has deadly consequences. Seventeen year old Rebecca Winters’ main goal for ten years has been to graduate high school and take down the people who killed her parents. When she stumbled upon a werewolf pack in the middle of Phoenix, she knew she’d found a way to make her dream come true. Instead of getting vengeance, an act of war has put her into a position of power and forces her to put her thirst for family justice on a temporary hold.

He is duty bound to protect her. Lucian (Lucky) Lamont is a member of the Protectors, an elite supernatural police force who works for the Authority. Their main goal is to keep humans in the dark about the creatures who live among them. Lucky is assigned to protect and manage Rebecca, despite her refusal of help. His cover is simple; he poses as the dutiful ‘pretend’ boyfriend in order to keep an eye on the new alpha wolf.

She is his mate.

Gabriel Black though taking his pack back from the witch who was chosen as the new alpha would be simple. He thought wrong. His entire world was turned upside down the moment he met Rebecca at the Authority Council meeting…and he was hooked the moment he kissed her to prove she wasn’t dating his best friend, Lucky.

It’s like being torn between two lovers.

Rebecca is pulled in hundreds of different directions while she attempts to find a way to survive the supernatural world, protect her family, and discover who massacred her entire pack days before her first transformation. She doesn’t have time for romance.

But the heart wants what the heart wants.

And the wolf gets what the wolf wants – or so her alpha believes. While Rebecca manages to keep her head above water as she unlocks political and family secrets which could destroy her, she loses sight of the most important people in her life and one of them pays the ultimate price.

To Walk in the Way of Lions

To Walk in the Way of Lions by H. Leighton Dickson

Kindlewalklions

TO WALK IN THE WAY OF LIONS is the second in the powerful Original Series by H. Leighton Dickson and picks up where TO JOURNEY IN THE YEAR OF THE TIGER leaves off. This is a sweeping post-apocalyptic tale of genetically altered lions and tigers, wolves and dragons in a world that has evolved in the wake of the fall of human civilization. Half feline, half human, their culture blends those of Dynastic China, Ancient India and Feudal Japan where humans are legend and kingdoms have risen in their stead. Fans of Tolkien, GAME OF THRONES, REDWALL or Japanese anime will be entertained in these intelligent and beautifully written pages in a blend of science, fantasy and zoological speculation.

“World-building on par with Zelazny!”

The conclusion to the sweeping epic that began in ‘TO JOURNEY IN THE YEAR OF THE TIGER, the story picks up where Journey leaves off, in the harsh deserts of Khanisthan. The team is running under a very set of different dynamics than before, for not only will they be forced to confront enemies tracking from the North and a hostile force from the Palace following from the South, but they must face their own demons that are plaguing them from within. It’s man against man, cat against cat, Seer against Alchemist, knowledge versus ‘the Way of Things’ – a Sci-Fi ‘Pride and Prejudice and Lions’, like you’ve never read it before.

From the ruthless wilds of Khanisthan to the wind-swept shores of the Mediterranean Sea, the beauty and savagery of the Upper Kingdom unfolds like a living thing before them as they travel and Kirin will find out what it means to follow the code of Bushido to the gates of death and beyond…

This is the journey of six individuals as they travel beyond the edges of the known Empire, into lands uncharted and wild. Theirs is a journey of magic and mystery, science and swords, romance and intrigue. It is a journey of different perspectives and unexpected kharma and love found in surprising places. It is a journey that takes place five thousand years or so in the future, naturally in the Year of the Tiger.
