Obsidian (The Dragon Kings Book 1) by Kimberly Loth

Seventeen-year-old Aspen is a skydiving, rock climbing, adrenaline junky. All her life, she’s been fascinated by the dragons who roam near her home in Yellowstone Park. Yes, Dragons. Though no human has ever gotten close enough to touch one.

Except Aspen.

While most people avoid the national parks because of the resident dragons, Aspen spends most of her free time in search of the feared and misunderstood creatures. For her, studying the dragons is a way to escape a painful past and avoid getting too close to anyone.

She’d rather track dragons in the wild and through the lens of her camera than talk to real people. But then Aspen meets a hot new guy at school, Sid King. He’s the one person she’s ever met who shares her obsession with all things dragon. But even as she feels strangely drawn to the mysterious boy, she senses he’s hiding his own set of dark and powerful secrets.

When hikers start turning up dead in the park, everyone suspects the formidable predators. Unless Aspen can prove their innocence, every one of her beloved dragons is in danger of eradication.

After Aspen and Sid uncover a sinister plot behind the brutal attacks, Aspen can no longer deny that Sid somehow knows more about the deaths than he should and the secrets they both keep threaten to rip their lives apart forever.

Shearwater: A Mermaid Romance by D.S. Murphy

MERMAIDS ARE REAL…And they’re going to kill us all. My life was ripped away from me when my parents died in a car accident. After moving to Ireland to live with a grandfather I didn’t even know existed, I discovered my mother’s past was filled with unresolved drama – dark secrets screaming to be uncovered. Strange things keep happening around me. Happening to me. Is it because of Sebastian, the golden-haired hunk who showed up in town at the same time as I did? Or Ethan, the brooding hottie locals whisper plays with dark magic?Maybe both… or neither. But someone is definitely out to get me, and I need to figure out why, and fast. I’m discovering powers of my own–powers I can’t contain. If I don’t discover who is after me or the real reason my mother fled Ireland, more people are going to die. WHAT READERS ARE SAYING”A thrilling urban fantasy romance set in Ireland. The story revolves around Irish mythology and the clash between an ancient race of witches and the merrow (mermaids), who are preparing to wipe out civilization. Fans of Percy Jackson, Nancy Drew and Twilight will love this epic adventure that keeps you guessing till the last page.” -Imlovingbooks.com ★★★★★ “Not just another Twilight–even though we do have sparkly mermaids instead of sparkly vampires. But the story itself is well told and the characters act and respond like real people instead of cardboard cutouts. The mystic premise of the mer-people is even almost believable in the context of the Irish coastal culture, and the interactions between the characters are more encompassing than just the make-believe of the story. Although it’s written for young adults, as a mainstream adult I found the story entertaining and readable, and even subscribed to the author’s site to get the next installment as well as his other books.” ★★★★★”The author’s writing and editing is impeccable, and his research is substantial. I feel like I’m at the exotic locales described. His backstory and science behind the mermaid phenomenon is solidly explained and more than adequate to suspend my disbelief. The author also presents a lot of this backstory as not an info-dump, so kudos for that.” ★★★★★>>This is ++BOOK ONE (COMPLETE)++ of the Ocean Depths Series.

Why would anyone want to murder these guys? Detective Walker has to put family and everything else aside to solve these crimes before anyone else falls victim to this vicious killer the press is now calling “The Card Counter”.

As each victim turns up, the case becomes more traumatic and bizarre. The killer has a point to make and will continue to make people pay with their lives . . . until Walker and the rest of the city GETS IT!! Find out who is murdered next and follow Detective Walker until he uncovers the truth behind these killings, the twisted motive for this murderous rampage.

Amazon Reader Reviews of ‘Mystery Thriller & Suspense: “The Card Counter” A Horror Crime Fiction Detective Murder Mysteries book as part of Conspiracy Thrillers with Serial Killers’:

“Brilliant and riveting book! James Kipling has once again mastered his method of throwing the reader straight into this dark fantasy right from the start. An excellent detective story creatively wrapped into a mystery and suspense thriller. Extremely well written. Crime and Mystery fills the pages as dead bodies are found all over the place. An intellectual murder and mystery thriller as this detective does what he does best adding being a good father to this weird thought thrilling equation.

James Kipling has the book glued to your hands with his exciting writing style with crime and murder twists and turns. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy the Author’s books but those enjoying a mystery and suspense thriller captivated in a dark fantasy. Yet again, Brilliant! ”

“This is a great pick when you need an intellectual puzzle, a suspensful thriller, and crime fiction with the thread of revenge running through it. The procedural is written in the first person, so we really get to know Devon, and that’s a great thing because he’s a cool guy. I liked his devotion to fatherhood, especially since we don’t have near enough serious genre characters who are also dads. Through his eyes we understand the high personal stakes he brings to all of his work, and especially to this case involving murdered students. I loved the way the relationship with his own daughter Cassie aids his work both as indirect inspiration and also directly. Big points to Kipling for pulling off those unique scenes.

The darker elements of the story don’t suffer at all from the family themes, in fact, kids are at risk throughout the whole story. Walker is a father but he’s first and foremost a relentless detective, and there is a lot of tension and action pushing the plot forward. Untangling the mystery is great, in a ripped from vengeful headlines way. Highly recommend this one for fans of crime fiction and suspenseful thrillers.”

“This is a hard book to put down! It follows Detective Jake Walker through a multiple homicide investigation, as well as his family life as he tries to be a good dad to his three daughters and deal with his ex-wife at the same time. Once the killings commence, it’s a roller coaster ride until the very end of the book. I ended up turning the pages as fast as I could in order to see what would happen next, because the author does a great job of keeping the reader guessing. Just when you think you know the pattern of the story, it twists an entirely different way. I thought I knew who the killer would turn out to be, and of course, I was completely wrong. Detective Walker’s character is very well-developed, so that the reader gets to know him both professionally and personally. Overall, this is a very readable suspenseful book that will keep you wanting more from this author.”
