“Another entertaining addition to the world of Pip and Flinx.” -Booklist

New York Times Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

From science fiction legend Alan Dean Foster comes a thrilling Pip and Flinx adventure, wherein a certain red-haired, green-eyed young man blessed (or cursed) with strange powers finds himself and his mini-dragon sidekick on a top-secret mission concerning deep space, alien worlds . . . and a primordial horror intent on devouring all of it.

In the outer depths of the universe lies the Great Emptiness, where something dreadful lurks, hidden behind a great gravitational lens of dark matter. Something horrific that howls and writhes and rages across three hundred million light-years of space–and is now heading straight for the Commonwealth and moving faster all the time.

One slim chance exists to avert catastrophe, and only Flinx can take it. Roaming the galaxy is a conscious planet-size weapons system, the legacy of a long-extinct race. As Flinx is the only one who has ever experienced mental contact with the machine, it is his job to find the powerful alien artifact and coax it into joining the battle against the behemoth from beyond.

So Pip and Flinx valiantly sail into the unknown aboard their little spaceship, which is immediately forced down for emergency repairs on planet Arrawd, home to less advanced sentients and therefore off-limits to space travelers. But what with Arrawd being very beautiful, and Flinx being Flinx, this particular rule doesn’t stand a chance.

Now, Flinx is no stranger to murderous attacks and stalking assassins–evading them occupies most of his waking hours–but to be besieged by hordes bent on worshipping him as a god? Worse still, escaping this fate is going to be as impossible as fulfilling his dire mission. What’s a deity to do?

“A sweet love story full of action, surprises and lots of suspense! You won’t regret buying this book!” -Jen

Boone Kendall made it to the hockey big leagues ten years ago. As captain of his team, he knows all too well that when you play a game at the highest level, the whole ‘playing’ thing can be misleading. You only play if you put in the hard work. Years of it. Decades of it. You do whatever it takes—and you try to fit the rest of your life in there somewhere.

Boone knows the routine. He lives it…..he loves it…..and then he loses it. Injured and off the ice for the remainder of the season, he heads to the Full Heart Ranch, for reasons only he knows. Because his concussion isn’t the only problem he faces. In fact, it’s not even the biggest one.

Jolene Tolley is the head physical therapist at the Full Heart Ranch Veterans Retreat Center. When her favorite hockey player decides to volunteer at the Center’s brand new ice rink while recuperating from an injury, Jolene is beyond thrilled. Working with a professional athlete is the chance of a lifetime, and she’s determined to do her part to get him back on the ice as soon as possible. It’s the least she can do for her beloved team.

After spending hours together in the gym every day, Jolene discovers that Boone is dealing with a lot more than just his physical symptoms. She shouldn’t care—it’s not her problem or her responsibility. But as their attraction grows, her heart won’t let her run. She’s confident she can help his body heal, but can she help with the bigger problem? Will he trust her enough to let her try?

Boone warns the beautiful, bubbly therapist against getting involved in his personal drama. Better to not find out things she’s going to wish she didn’t know. But she’s a healer by trade, and she won’t give up. She doesn’t care about his fame or his money, she cares only about him. He knows he can trust her….and like it or not, he soon realizes he needs her.

Decisions don’t always come with a winning option—sometimes everyone loses. Sometimes God gives you a responsibility you don’t want, but you can’t get rid of it. Sometimes you have to fight to get back the game you love. And sometimes, when you’re not expecting it and don’t know if you deserve it, He blesses you with a person whose love is strong enough to survive it all. That’s when you finally get the win.

Ever since high school, Kayla has been crazy for gorgeous football player Talon. But before she could muster the courage to tell him, he became a hot item with her beautiful BFF, Reagan.

Private detective Eric Beckman can read minds.

Although he reads only the conscious thoughts of the people he interviews, it usually gives him enough of an edge to overcome his inexperience as a PI. But mind reading is hell on relationships. Trusting comes hard when you know what people are really thinking.

The case of his life lands in his lap when a beautiful woman materializes during a televised baseball game. She floats in midair, then drops to the ground, comatose.

Beckman is at her bedside when she wakes up. From the moment she opens her eyes, she has him under her spell. He vows to figure out where—or when—she came from, even if it kills him.

The stakes increase when she disappears without a trace. Worse, she holds the key to a worldwide energy catastrophe. If Beckman can’t find her and unlock her secrets, economies will collapse, and the world will spiral down into chaos.
