IN TIME Gabe's life has been devastated in the wake of the economic crash. The only option left for someone like him to escape his tragic past is to leave his small town behind and to attempt to become a skiptracer. This already almost-impossible task is made all the more difficult by his first "score,"a young girl who won't speak, but who changes his life in ways he could never imagine. SPARKS RISE Sam didn't think things could get worse at Thurmand rehabilitation camp. Then the Reds arrive. Everyone assumed the kids with firepower had been killed years ago. Instead they were taken away, brainwashed, and returned as terrifyingly effective guards. To her horror, Sam recognizes one of them: Lucas, the one spark of light in Sam's dark childhood. Lucas has a deadly secret--he beat the brutal training that turned his fellow Reds into mindless drones. When Sam defends herself against an attack by a vile PSF guard and faces a harrowing punishment, Lucas must risk everything to save her. BEYOND THE NIGHT The government-run "rehabilitation camps" have been shut down, but kids with Psi powers are anything but free. Sam would rather be on her own than put in the care of a foster family and given the "cure"--a dangerous procedure that unclaimed kids across the country are being forced to undergo. But there's more at stake than just her own safety. Sam once made someone a promise, and the time has come to fulfill it. Now that she's out of her camp, Mia only has one thought in her head: finding Lucas, her beloved older brother.

Final Hour

[He creates] characters of unusual richness and depth . . . with a level of perception and sensitivity that is not merely convincing; it’s astonishing.” —The Seattle Times   “Demanding much of itself, Koontz’s style bleaches out clichés while showing a genius for details. He leaves his competitors buried in the dust.” —Kirkus Reviews   “A rarity among bestselling writers, Koontz continues to pursue new ways of telling stories, never content with repeating himself.”—Chicago Sun-Times   “Tumbling, hallucinogenic prose. ‘Serious’ writers . . . might do well to examine his technique.”—The New York Times Book Review   “[Koontz] has always had near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match.” —Los Angeles Times   “Koontz is a superb plotter and wordsmith. He chronicles the hopes and fears of our time in broad strokes and fine detail, using popular fiction to explore the human condition.”—USA Today   “Characters and the search for meaning, exquisitely crafted, are the soul of [Koontz’s] work. . . . One of the master storytellers of this or any age.”—The Tampa Tribune   “A literary juggler.”—The Times (London)

Getting to Her


Erin Nicholas - 2015
    You do *not* need to read this novella to enjoy the novel. This is strictly bonus content! It can be read before or after that book, but it is not a stand alone story. You've been warned :) Dear Reader, I knew from the first chapter of book one in the Sapphire Falls series that Hailey Conner was going to have a story. And I knew, as soon as I typed the words “Tyler Bennett is such an ass” that it would be with Tyler Bennett! Over the next five books and two novellas, their story developed and I realized that it was just as big as these two personalities. Before I typed one word of Getting Over It, their current day love story, I knew that there was more about their story that readers would want to know and I planned to write this novella about how it all started. All of this happens before you see them love, fight, laugh, cry and finally figure it out in Getting Over It. Even though I knew all of this happened in the past, I wrote the book first. And when it was all said and done, I realized that reading about their now and their future would make people even more curious about their past. So technically Getting to Her comes before Getting Over It, but it can definitely also be read after. Either way, I think you’ll agree that these two have worked hard to get to their happily ever after. One of the best surprises in life, in my opinion, is finding out there’s more to the story. Happy Reading! Erin The Sapphire Falls series (in order): Getting Out of Hand, book one Getting Worked Up, book two Getting Dirty, book three Getting In the Spirit, Christmas novella Getting In the Mood, Valentine's novella Getting It All, book four Getting Lucky, book five Getting to Her, novella, book six companion Getting Over It, book six
