One afternoon, the local sheriff interrupts his book club meeting, and Sharecross´s old career collides with his new one. The area´s premier book collector has been found bludgeoned to death on the floor of his family library. A fifth-generation resident of Good Advice, Lloyd Fister devoted his life to books, accumulating a collection of local history that date backs to the 16th century.

Found in the Qumran caves of the Dead Sea Scrolls (Qumran Cave 4), and presumed to be written before BC 170, chapters 1-36 of 1 Enoch are also referred to as The Book of the Watchers. These passages are also known to incorporate portions of the Book of Noah. The theme of the Watchers is final judgement, and incorporates the expository background of one of the most spectacularly glossed-over, overlooked, and misunderstood Scriptures in the Bible - Genesis 6:1-4. The ´´sons of God´´ referred to in Genesis 6:2 are explained in detail in The Book of the Watchers. These Watchers were supposed to be watching the earth as part of their heavenly ministry, but instead, they transgressed and became fallen angels. How did they become fallen angels? They saw that women on earth were pleasant to look at and schemed/colluded to somehow incarnate themselves, (literally celestial or, dare we say, ´extraterrestrial´ beings manifesting in some kind of physical form), in order to impregnate women and corrupt the bloodline of humans. The offspring of the Watchers (and their human mates) were what the bible calls ´´giants´´ or ´´Nephilim.´´ These half-humans/half-fallen-angel hybrids were extremely wicked, and began eating everything and everybody! This is the reason, some scholars say, for God´s sending the flood of Noah. Additionally, The Book of the Watchers outlines how these fallen angels corrupted mankind by teaching them forbidden knowledge of weapon-making, sorcery, witchcraft, astrology, and other forbidden technologies. Consequently, when the flood washed them all away, the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim became the unclean spirits (i.e. demons) we now have roaming the earth. (Luke 11: 24-26, Matthew 8:28-32). All of these things and more are outlined in The Book of the Watchers. We exhort you to keep your spiritual eyes, ears, and heart open as you dive into ´The B... 1. Language: English.

The second novel of The Books of the Elements. The wealthy Governor Saxa, of the great city of Carce, has generously and lavishly subsidized a theatrical/religious event. During this elaborate staging of Hercules founding a city on the shores of Lusitania, strange and dark magic turns the panoply into a chilling event. The sky darkens and the waves crash in the flooded arena. A great creature rises from the sea: a huge, tentacled horror on snake legs. It devastates the city, much to the delight of the crowd. A few in the audience, although not Saxa, understand that this was not mere stagecraft, but something much darker and more dangerous. If all signs are being read right, this illusion could signify a dreadful intrusion of supernatural powers into the real world. Saxa’s son, Varus, has been the conduit for such an event once before. This new novel in David Drake’s chronicles of Carce, The Books of the Elements, is as powerful and elaborate as that fantastic theatrical event, a major fantasy for this year. 1. Language: English.

Centuries have passed since civilization´s brush with apocalypse. The world´s greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace...and fear. A terrible secret was closely guarded for centuries: every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity. Nine years have gone by since an unlikely hero named Rom Sebastian first discovered a secret and consumed an ancient potion of blood to bring himself back to life in Forbidden. Surviving against impossible odds, Rom has gathered a secret faction of followers who have also taken the blood - the first Mortals in a world that is dead. On the heels of Forbidden comes Mortal, the second novel in The Books of Mortals saga penned by Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee. Set in a terrifying, medieval future, where grim pageantry masks death, this tale of dark desires and staggering stakes peels back the layers of the heart for all who dare take the journey. The Books of Mortals are three novels, each of which stands on its own, yet all are seamlessly woven into one epic thriller. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Henry Leyva.
