SOME FAMILY TREES SHOULD BE BURNED TO THE GROUND
My name is Jessie Flores and I thought I was done being jerked around by witches, dryads, and gods in my quest to become a real-life superhero. Turns out they were just getting started.
My father’s been kidnapped, a handsome vampire with a shady past won’t stop shadowing me, and my best friend’s family is actively trying to kill him.
Fixing all of that won’t be easy, though, since I’ve been cursed to complete thirteen divine trials, while a newb fury haunts my every step. If I fail, I’ll die. If I hesitate, my friends will suffer instead.
I might not have enough power in me to save my loved ones and satisfy the whims of the gods. But you know what? I’m willing to die trying. Because that’s what a real hero would do.
From Rick Gualtieri – author of the Tome of Bill series – and R.E. Carr – creator of the Rules Undying series – comes the newest chapter in False Icons, a kick-ass humorous fantasy tale set in the hilariously terrifying world of Bill The Vampire.

Now the fate of an alien world is in the hands of a gal who's never landed a steady job or boyfriend, but at least she has watched a few years' worth of archeology documentaries. Hopefully that will be enough to get by, since it seems like most of Earth's lost civilizations ended up stranded in this extraterrestrial zoo too. Also, there is the trivial matter of a Mayan assassin sent to kill her...
We are all our own worst enemies, but maybe Jennifer has a chance to break that mold.
JESSIE FLORES IS HAVING THE ULTIMATE BAD HAIR DAY.
Imagine going to bed with mousy brown locks and waking up with a headful of supernova scarlet. It’s a hot new look for me – literally, because it bursts into flames whenever I’m threatened.
My magical makeover is all Gary’s fault. I knew there was something off from the moment he transferred to my school. Go figure. He’s a wizard with a trust fund and an inferiority complex.
Now, thanks to him, I’ve graduated from high school bullies to supernatural terrors and that’s not all. Fate has chosen me to face the legendary vampire destined to destroy the world.
If I want to survive, I’ll have to dig deep and discover whether I’m truly worthy of this new power. Because if not, everything I hold dear will soon burn even hotter than my hair.
From Rick Gualtieri – author of Bill The Vampire – and R.E. Carr – creator of the Rules Undying series – comes a new kick-ass heroine for the twenty-first century.

Not if you happen to be Rob(erta) Hardlick, and the game happens to be Tales of Verdainia. Rob spends “her” days trapped in a body designed purely for aesthetics, trying her best to stay ahead of evolving game mechanics and the idiots trapped in the simulation alongside her. At least she has a trusty nerd named Mitch as a pal and a tried and true formula to avoid being brain-fried for the sake of virtual entertainment.
All that changes when she must join a team to stay alive. But will a foul-mouthed barbarian and cowardly priest be enough to stay ahead of the mobs? It’s times like this that make you wonder why a misanthropic introvert signed up for a MMORPG. Then again, there are quests to complete, realms to liberate…
But why save the world when saving your own ass is a full-time job?
Arthur, the once and future king, has returned and sent all traces of his past to the underworld. Ren Matsuoka is gone, and now is time for a new age of vampire glory. . .
. . .Or is it?
Paige DeMarco and her pack still hold on to one hope – the traitor Mordred is reborn as well, and ready to take a stand against his father, that is . . . if he can pull himself together before it’s too late. Together with his new allies, he is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to prevent a new era of immortal kings.
However, all that dies is not gone, perhaps it is merely lost. A shadow of a girl must discover if she is actually the one that can stop a tragedy before it repeats itself . . .
Finding a job is never easy, and the only employment Gail usually finds is acting as Girl Friday for the mob. Lucky for Gail, Georgia Sutherland has just the job for her—that is, if she can handle working nights, managing a little blood, and a boss who's been dead for centuries.
In a single interview, Gail's world turns upside down as she discovers that all she’s seen in Hollywood isn’t quite true; vampires don't combust in sunlight, but they do fall in love.
Are Georgia's stories enough to persuade Gail to take the gig catering to an antediluvian vampire who's thirsty for a new personal assistant? If Gail wants to live out the year and retire rich, she just needs to remember the Four Rules that govern undead society.
Paige Carmichael has one simple rule: don’t rock the boat. She lives a quiet life in the suburbs with an adequate boyfriend and a job that pays the rent, all the while trying to hide the fact that she’s the daughter of a world-renowned paranormal investigator. Her happy bubble bursts when the father she’s tried so hard to forget appears at her door with an ominous message—vampires are real.
Paige’s safe little life doesn’t have secretive strangers that hide from the sun, arcane laws, or mysterious covens that stretch back for eons, but change as sure as the cycle of the moon is headed her way. Unfortunately for Paige, it’s a dog-eat-dog world, and if she doesn’t learn to adapt and discover her own inner strength, she might just find herself at the bottom of the food chain—quite literally.
Paige DeMarco is spending her honeymoon on the run from vampires with her comatose husband and a gang of misfits in tow. How can she lead the last of her pack to safety when she has troubles of her own to take care of?
Who can forget Georgia Sutherland? Apparently, the love of her life can, thanks to a kiss from an undead helper. No longer protected by the four laws, she must find a new place in the world and do anything it takes to stay alive.
Meanwhile, Gail Filipovic is getting used to the fact that vampires are real. Can she save the day, and find Georgia and Paige before time runs out?
Until a handsome stranger rolls into town that is. Jonathan Dean has a past shrouded in mystery, and a mission to protect the very same company that now employs Gail. He seems like a character straight out of those vampire romances she loves to read, but Gail knows those stories aren’t real. Vampires are not real . . .
So why does she have to repeat this mantra every night, and why didn’t she notice that quirky janitor before?
Meanwhile, halfway across the country, Paige DeMarco has given up her old name and her old life, and finally found a man worth her time. Unfortunately for her, werewolf relationships aren’t as simple as she hoped, especially when her vampire ex rolls into town.
Both women have to face the facts: once you get involved with vampires, life becomes complicated. As their lives intertwine, ghosts of the past rise up to haunt them. The only question is, can there ever be a happily ever after for those entangled with the undying?
