In this prequel to the hit science fiction crime drama anime series, Psycho-Pass: Inspector Shinya Kogami reveals how the legendary Enforcer was once an ace detective! Working within the city-regulating Sybil System, Inspectors must fight crime in a future where a single number measures your criminal tendencies and determines if you are useful to society! An artificial organ with a numbered brand is the key piece of evidence that leads Section 3 to a network of organ smuggling! They must set up a complicated trap in order to catch the culprit! However the real perpetrator may not be who they think it is... Reviews for the Psycho-Pass anime series: "On the whole, Psycho-Pass is a grim, interesting show that poses some philosophical questions about what makes a criminal. We are all capable of doing bad things at times-should we be punished because we thought of hurting someone before we act on it? Or because we were victims?"-Anime News Network "Makes good use of the dystopian future genre, good foils and parallels throughout. Some neat visuals..." -Anime News Network "Psycho-Pass is a compelling cyberpunk mystery..."-Kotaku "All these crimes-and the series itself-are tied together by a puppet master antagonist working behind the scenes. Much like the Moriarty character from BBC's Sherlock, the main villain of Psycho Pass is a "consulting criminal." While he rarely dirties his hands himself, he is the man working in the shadows to supply the murderers with the resources they need to get away with their crimes. In this way he is shown to be brilliant, competent, and more than a little terrifying-despite the ultimate failures of each of his murderous clients."-Kotaku "You will emotionally invest in these characters. You will be made to feel and have empathy towards them. The main characters are some of the strongest I have experienced in a while and the side characters also impacted me greatly. Agent Kogami is an interesting character who has both physical and mental strength that makes him really likeable (and loveable in my opinion)."-IGN "Psycho Pass is the best crime-thriller-science fiction anime I have watched and will definitely be recommending to others as well as watching again in the future."-IGN

I think that the others can have the desired effect.” Ru looked concerned.“No. I think that I will stick with the original plan. It won’t hurt me to be out in the world for a while, and you know I do love all things mechanical. It will be good for me. I think.”Ru put her hand on Blitzen’s shoulder. “I will miss you.”“I will be home soon. The sooner that I leave, the sooner I will be on my way back here.”Ru chuckled. “You can leave and enjoy yourself. There is no harm in it.”“I have never really given enjoyment a try.”Ru rolled her eyes. “I know. You started life as a Quaker, and the simple life has never really left you.”“You know how terrifying this place was when I first arrived.”Ru stroked her cheek. “I remember, but this time, the magic is giving you the knowledge that you need.

From best-selling horror author Iain Rob Wright comes his scariest novel yet. Is it possible to infect a place with evil? Are some atrocities so awful that the land itself becomes contaminated? And what would happened if you found yourself trapped in such a place? What begins with a car crash on an ancient bridge ends with the ultimate sacrifice. Follow the survivors of a horrific accident as they try to understand their fates and find rescue. A rescue that should have already come. Tom and Sophie Sumner have been married for 10 years. They won't make it to 11. Infidelity and neglect have torn their relationship apart, and they part ways today. Sophie is going home to the village she grew up - Cottontree. If there's any chance of Tom persuading her to give their marriage one last chance, it's now. But Cottontree is a place with a much darker past than anybody knows, and the Sumners are about to have much bigger problems than their marriage.

It’s the final countdown to world domination.So I accidentally released Clayone, the Original Werewolf, which one would think would be the worst of my troubles.... Oh, how wrong one would be. Gram and Uncle Mark, who happens to be my dad (I’m still reeling about that one), just informed me that I’m from a long line of Druids, and according to some prophecy, I’m the Celtic Goddess Brigit reincarnated. I’m not even remotely magical, let alone a Goddess, but one of my friends is already dead and another one’s been bitten.For now, Clayone's trapped in a church, too weak to leave, but on the eve of Samhain, October 31, during the Super Blue Blood Moon's lunar eclipse, he will be more powerful than he's been in a thousand years. Lucky me. If he can destroy the reincarnated goddess while she’s in human form, the werewolves' curses of imprisonment - the silver bullet and the full moon - will be lifted, and the unbridled reign of the werewolf will begin at last. The fate of the world is in my hands, but the real question is, do I actually believe I’m Brigit, a reincarnated goddess, and if so, will I lock Clayone back in the hell where he came from before it's too late? I think we all know the answers to those questions. All I really know is that the full moon has never looked so terrifying. The Goddess Chronicles are a fast-paced contemporary fantasy adventure with a kick butt heroine, some hot powerful heroes, and loads of magic just to make things more explosive. If you like Chandelle LaVaun, Linsey Hall, M. Lynn, and B.R. Kingsolver, you will love The Goddess Chronicles.Other books by KB AnneThe Goddess Chronicles, Books 1 - 3Wide AwakeBlood MoonDark MoonShadow MoonOak Moon 1. Language: English.

51 True Paranormal Mysteries of the Haunted Underworld. Whether we believe in them or not, we cannot deny how many stories are out there about real hauntings. These stories are mostly unknown - they are not the common stories that you hear told over and over again. Ghost stories, tales of horror, demons - they all have one thing in common - and that is the ability to capture our attention and hold our imagination, for as long as the tale is told. We all have a fascination for the paranormal, no matter where we come from or what we do in life. The reminder that there is something unknown after death - it's enough to mesmerize even the most devout skeptic. Come with me on a trek across the world and across time, and indulge in true tales of terror that are guaranteed to keep you up tonight. You can be brave, you can be strong, and you might be a skeptic, but by the time you reach the end of this audiobook, you are going to rethink everything you thought you knew about the paranormal, and think twice before you shut off your light. Judge for yourself if these are true tales, or if people have added and embellished them throughout the ages. There was a time when a witch was as terrifying as a monster, and as such the things they have done have been passed down from generation to generation. Here's a preview of what's in this audiobook: The Faceless Watchers A Curse on The Land The Mysterious Practices of Stewart Farrar The Real Blaire Witch The Satanic Daughter of the Norse King The Truly Terrifying Tale of Bloody Mary And much, much more! 1.

Born From Oblivion - God no longer rules supreme.In the distant past, long before people populated the Earth, and before animals roamed the planet, something terrifying and cunning made its home in the vegetation covering the planet like a soft green blanket. Lying in wait for millions of years, this species continued to evolve, patiently crossing over and manipulating the genetic code of different species. And now, this perfect omniscient being...born from oblivion has awakened and is ready to feed....God no longer rules supreme....

I have always struggled with the problem. In school, it was always terribly difficult for me to read what was right in front of me. And reading, writing, and spelling still to this day remain difficult for me. One thing I've learned despite having this learning disability is that I can accomplish my goals if I don't get overwhelmed by the big picture. I just take one step at a time. DragonMan: Face of the Unknown, authored by Ted Lazaris who created DragonMan and wrote the series of novels which are being developed and produced by ThunderBall Films, has accomplished the amazing feat of debuting at number one on Amazon, ahead of David Baldacci and James Patterson novels.

LoganFrom the moment I first saw him, I knew I was screwed.Bennet Long wasn’t just any handsome Omega with sinfully blue eyes and an body that could make an Alpha like me ache long after I’d watched him go. He was off limits. Completely forbidden. Not because I couldn’t take him. I knew the minute we first touched and I saw the way his cheeks flushed pink that I could have him. Make him mine. No, I couldn’t even let myself think about taking Bennet Long - not because I couldn’t, but because it was wrong.I was 55. He was barely old enough to buy his own beer. After one failed marriage already and a lifetime of military service, I knew I wasn’t suitable to be around any Omega at all - but the last Omega I needed to be throwing myself at was one as young, damaged, and naive as him.And then there was the other catch...the one that turned Bennet Long from a no-go zone into the juiciest piece of forbidden fruit I could imagine...BennetI’d always found myself attracted to older Alphas, but after my last relationship came to such a violent, terrifying end, I never thought I’d actually be with one ever again. But ever since that awful, painful night, my body had been hurt in ways that I couldn’t explain. My heat started coming on stronger. More unpredictable. More desperate. Being around any Alpha at all when one hit me was a bad idea of the highest order...But being around my best friend’s Alpha military hero dad? With Logan’s broad, strong shoulders, thick, muscular arms, and firm, I couldn’t have stopped myself even if I’d wanted to.Logan was everything that I knew I didn’t need in my life. Authoritative. Commanding. Emotionally absent. But the things he made me feel were too strong to deny. Could I try to anyway?Not a chance. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Burrows.
