In summer, the nights may be shorter, but they have bigger teeth.Casey has spent nearly twenty years tracking down the creatures that have been murdering their way across the upper Midwest. As summer begins to wind down, he’s running out of time to find them before winter takes hold and the things that hunt in the dark sleep out the cold. This year is different, though. They’ve been sloppy, and Casey is closer than he’s been in over a decade.He’s all set to close in on them – that is, until he meets Max. She’s the resourceful manager of a dingy motel, and Casey’s way into the tiny town hiding a pair of nightmares. She’s the perfect partner for finishing the hunt. The problem with Max is that she’s alive, and the things Casey hunts want her dead.Casey will need to decide what’s more dangerous – hunting the creatures alone, or having an ally along who he cares about too much. He’ll need to decide soon; if they get away this time, he may never find them again.

What Are Nootropics?I like to be in tip top form and that extends to my brain too. I’d like to think that a healthy diet, avoidance of alcohol, regular exercise and memory games do the trick, but sometimes I feel in need of an extra boost.For that I use nootropic supplements, compounds that can enhance your cognitive abilities, improving concentration, learning, mood, memory, focus, and motivation.It might be a lifestyle hack, but it’s one that the health fanatic in me can live with because I am very discerning about the substances that I put into my body.According to the man who first created the nootropics category all the way back in 1972, researcher C.E. Giurgea, nootropics are natural or synthetic substances that can protect and promote brain health. They boost various cognitive abilities (and resist conditions and injuries that threaten those abilities) AND are low in toxicity and side-effects.The latter point is the crucial one. There are many stimulants on the market that promise to boost brain power or tackle memory loss, for instance, but some of them have potentially nasty side effects. These would not be nootropics.Nootropics can be supplements, drugs, foods or nutraceuticals and each works in varying degrees of efficiency on different aspects of mental function.There is no known risk of long-term addiction to nootropics, though you are always advised to consult a health professional before using them.

This describes the reality of it, fear and all, and still makes you want to follow in Nadia’s footsteps.”“The book took me beyond just reading about someone’s travels. It’s written so openly that it made me wonder throughout about what I would have done in the same circumstances. It makes it even better that it’s written from a woman’s point of view as it deals with some experiences that only female travelers can relate to, and what it’s like to keep going anyway. An important book that I would highly recommend!”“I couldn’t put it down. I felt like I was travelling with Nadia. Like I could see what she was seeing and taste what she was eating.
