Solahütte by Steven Donahue – Spotlight

Naïve SS officer Blaz Schaffer is assigned guard duty at Auschwitz in Poland in 1944 after suffering an injury in battle. While stationed at the camp, he visits Solahütte, a nearby resort for German personnel, and he falls in love with Sara, a worker at the lodge.

Schaffer clashes with his fellow soldiers over their ruthless treatment of the camp prisoners, particularly the head guard, Wilhelm Gratzfirmer, a psychopathic Nazi who enjoys torturing

and murdering the captives. He also runs afoul of Dr. Joseph Mengele, the notorious camp doctor

who decides the fates of the prisoners as they arrive at the camp. As his injury heals and his time

at the camp nears its end, Schaffer makes a fateful decision that changes the lives of those around him.

Fanged and fabulous…and hunted.

Gina Covella, fashionista of the fanged, and her entourage are primed to reveal the existence of vampires on the popular Ghouligans television show, when their former federal handlers swoop in to shut them down and imprison the vamps in one of their super secret testing facilities. Or not so secret, as the gang knows all about the horror hospitals and has sworn to take them down.

Their daring escape runs them right into the arms of “the resistance”—a group of humans and vampires who’ve joined together to stop the fighting that’s made Gina and her boy Bobby’s hometown a bloody battlefield. Going home brings them back to old nemeses as well, including the psycho psychic who declared Gina “chaos” and Bobby “the key”. They hope he’ll unlock the secret of stopping the Feds’s freakshow experiments for good, because they’re building up to something big. Huge. And they’re consolidating their power in the Big Easy, aka New Orleans, where what’s cooking is nothing less than the final showdown.

But before Ari can complete her campaign of revenge, the Crimson Court exposes her shadowed past and reveals something even more dangerous sparking between her and Cvareh.

While Nova is embroiled in blood sport and political games, the rebels on Loom prepare for an all-out assault on their Dragon oppressors.

For the future of her world, she vows vengeance against the Dragons.

Before the rebellion can rise, though, the Guilds must fall.

Albian Road by Peter Idone – Spotlight 

ALBION ROAD is a detectiveless detective story set in the early months of the year 2000. Steiner, a middle aged accountant, smart, but by his own admission plagued by ennui, is asked by the wife of an old college friend, Roger Delwyn, to uncover the relationship her husband had with a man named Harry Corvair. The wife, Suzanne Delwyn, wants to know why this name was the last words her husband uttered as he lay dying. Steiner embarks on a dark twisting path to uncover the true relationship between his old friend and the enigma named Harry Corvair. Steiner is thrust into the sordid details of the Delwyn family history and some unsavory characters that had populated Roger’s life, uncovering an aspect of his friend that he did not know existed.

Interspersed throughout the narrative of Steiner’s amateur investigation are anecdotes and flashbacks of the relationship he had with Roger Delwyn from their college years and the years following that highlight the friend he knew as a man of intelligence and sharp wit with a salacious sense of humor. And now, since Roger’s death, Steiner comes to realize that his friend actually harbored a disquieting darkness.
