Book III – Son of the Moon: Can you face the consequences of cheating the Fates?
Alexander the Great journeys to India, where he and Ashley are welcomed with feasts and treachery.
With their son, Paul, being worshiped as the Son of the Moon, and Alexander’s looming death, Ashley considers the unthinkable: how to save them and whether she dares to cheat Fate?
“I treated myself to a copy of ‘Son of the Moon’ for a Christmas present and was not disappointed. Like Jennifer’s two previous novels in the series, I found the characters believable and their relationships well developed. Alexander is a passionate hero with human failings just as I had always envisioned him and I enjoy the depiction of this unusual “family” group that has grown up around him during his efforts to explore the edges of the known world. Although battles are described, the emphasis is on the developing human relationships that I find as important to history (even alternate history) as events.
In this installment, Alexander and Ashley are in India and they experience the culture’s exotic combination of beauty, courage, and treachery as they struggle through the monsoons, confront the formidable war elephants of Porus, and outwit brutal Brahmin rebels. Ashley must also face the reality of Alexander’s looming death and consider the possibilities and consequences of cheating fate.”

Meet May, the vampire killer. She takes life seriously having been killed by a mob of rogue vamps. Her father, a powerful necromancer, brought her back to life. She’s MUCI’s best man, er, woman, well, zombie actually, for catching rogues, so when corpses show up with signs of having been killed by a rogue, May gets the case.
Clues lead straight to Bartholomew Aelfrith, a vampire, whose sense of humor and blond good looks are enough to convince May he needs killing…even if he’s not the killer. If he makes one more joke about her chop-sticks, she’s going to stab him in the heart with one. The problem is, Bartholomew is the only person who can catch the killer, so May has to put up with his wise-cracks and his penchant for picking up strays.
But if he says, “I’ve got a plan” one more time, she’s going to scream.
“May is an infamous vampire killer…but that is not the only supernatural thing about her. She’s a zombie with a weak ankle. When abominations start showing up around town, all leads point to Bartholomew Aelfrith, a hunky vampire who is centuries old. The only problem is that Bartholomew is set on proving his innocence and there is a growing attraction between the two. …This is a great paranormal read that takes a fresh look at vampires and zombies.”

Welcome to The Purple Dee. Pull up a chair and get settled in, the show will start soon!
Our featured performer tonight is Jack the Stripper. He’s Jack Severn, newly back from the dead. He’s magical, he’s hot, but evil he’s not!
Our very own Jim Ling-Li, Necromancer extraordinaire brought him back to life, gave him some extra features, and as you’ll see, made him irresistible—especially to Jack’s ex-girlfriend Brianna. Jack’s sexier than ever, and they’re better together. But she doesn’t want to risk her heart, not again, and definitely not with a zombie.
Jack also has a mission. He’s back to catch the Heart Taker, the mutant that’s been terrifying human and undead alike. His current obsession’s none other than Jack’s Brianna.
So give a big hand for Jack…he’s going to need all the support he can get to catch his own murderer.
“Zombie Jack is a hoot. Jack Severn, our hero, is a corpse. Did someone scream, “Necrophilia!”? Really, this one will be a treat to fans who enjoy horror movies with a touch of zany humor. While this one is not too scary, the macabre corpse humor is something to be savored, right from the start when the hero’s arm falls off at the bus station .[…] There are more layers to the story that the bare backbone of a plot that I have given here. The story is really enjoyable as Ms Winston deliciously brings on the zany dark humor in a manner that really appeals to the fan of the macabre in me. The humor is not too overpowering or too farcical – just enough to keep me laughing. There is already a beautiful kind of poetry in the premise, what with a hero who lacks a heart, but is in love, and who is supposed to be dead but ends up a hero instead. The story doesn’t disappoint in delivering a fun Tim Burton kind of romantic adventure where I am concerned…”
