Faith Fiction Sunday: Discovery by Karina Fabian

Nuns in Space

I have a great idea! On Sundays I'm going to post about novels that have a strong religious or spiritual theme.

Let's start with Discovery by Karina Fabian.

Here's the blurb:
Sisters Ann, Tommie and Rita are part of a classified mission to explore an alien ship that has crash landed on an asteroid three billion miles from earth. Humanity's first contact with beings from beyond the solar system is bound to unlock the mystery of life in the universe, but the crew have their own secrets; hidden fears, desires, horrible sins - and a mission to kill. Researchers discover something unique about the third arm of the ship: something wonderful, something terrifying. Something holy. This discovery challenges Rita and Ann to confront their own pasts in order to secure the safety of the mission and the very souls of the crew.

"...a suspenseful space adventure with deep roots that extend to questions about life, death, faith, and purpose.” Tom Doran, fantasy author of Toward the Gleam (Ignatius Press)

I've been meaning to read this for a while now. I love the concept of an order of space rescue nuns.

New Release: War Demons by Russell Newquist

Rave Reviews for a New Urban Fantasy Series

A new urban fantasy series titled War Demons by Russell Newquist.

Here's the blurb:
When he came home, so did they...

Driven by vengeance, Michael Alexander enlisted in the Army the day after 9/11. Five years later, disillusioned and broken by the horrors he witnessed in Afghanistan, Michael returns home to Georgia seeking to begin a new life. But he didn't come alone. Something evil followed him, and it's leaving a path of destruction in its wake.

The police are powerless. The Army has written Michael off. Left to face down a malevolent creature first encountered in the mountains of Afghanistan, he'll rely on his training, a homeless prophet, and estranged family members from a love lost...

But none of them expected the dragon.

Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden collides with Larry Correia's Monster Hunter International in this supernatural thriller that goes straight to Hell!

War Demons is the first book in the Prodigal Son series. It's already gotten great reviews. Dan Humphreys, author of Fade and A Place Outside the Wild, says in his review:
We first encounter our protagonist, Michael Alexander, on a mission in Afghanistan that’s about to go horribly wrong. There’s enough mystery and terror in this intro to get you hooked. In my case, I read the book in a couple sittings over the course of a day. It was a struggle to put it down, and considering the work I put aside to do so, that says a lot for War Demons.

Richard Paolinelli, author of Dragon Award Finalist Escaping Infinity, sums up his review with:
I can honestly say it is a 5-Star Special that you must read.

FREE I am the Wendigo & NEW RELEASE The Thing in the Woods by Matthew W. Quinn

Free Today

This short horror story by Matthew W. Quinn is FREE Today - I am the Wendigo.

Here's the blurb:
Many tales have been told about the Wendigo, the man-eating monster of Algonquin legend. But how many times has the Wendigo ever spoken for himself?

Step inside and take a gander at the mind of the top predator in Canada's North Woods. First published in the horror webzine CHIMAERA SERIALS in 2007, this dark tale also appears in the collection FLASHING STEEL, FLASHING FIRE.

New Release

Mathew W. Quinn is also the author of the new horror thriller The Thing in the Woods.

Here's the blurb:
"Turn the lights on before you read this, it's a scary one!" -- James R. Tuck author of the Deacon Chalk series.

Seventeen-year-old James Daly's father bought a house in small-town Edington, Georgia to go with a promotion at his Atlanta law firm, only to lose his job when the housing bubble popped and the economy tanked. Now James has to work at the Edington Best Buy to help pay the mortgage they're underwater on. He can't wait until he turns eighteen and can leave Edington behind forever.

But when a local boy challenges him to an ATV race near a tree farm most people avoid, things get much worse. James' rival is dismembered alive by a tentacled horror emerging from a nearby pond. The monstrosity has been worshiped by a murderous coven since before the Civil War, and its devotees don't take kindly to their secrets being threatened.

Now with the aid of Amber Webb, a local girl he doesn't like liking, and a renegade cult member, James must fight to avoid ending up bound to a picnic table and offered up to a monster. He must do battle with both the local cultists and their predatory master, THE THING IN THE WOODS.

In space, when you lose the high ground, you lose the war.

Eleven years before, General David Warren was the best and brightest, in charge of defending the Earth from an attacking fleet. Overmatched in battle, the Earth forces were devastated, and the enemy moved into the high ground and proceeded with orbital bombardment. Civilization fell, and then two years later, the enemy landed and the occupation began.

Now Warren lives with his sister and nephew, trying to farm the land while avoiding detection by the occupiers, the Invy. When two travelers show up at his doorstep, his carefully constructed life starts to unravel.
