    Suzanne de Montigny

    eBook (BWL Publishing Inc., Feb. 14, 2016)
    Sixty years after the unicorns’ narrow escape from extinction, Azaria's Legacy has gone wrong. The new generation barely exists, hidden in the depths of the forest. Their cruel and ruthless leader, Icarus, threatens them daily with Jaresh, an invisible being capable of taking away their powers. Angry, the young colt Ulysees and his friend Téo rebel, following an old, abandoned trail where they’re discovered by humans. Now the entire herd must flee. But Ulysees learns there’s a far greater danger than humans when he meets a giant creature who warns him of impending doom…ReviewsHats off to Suzanne de Montigny for giving us a book that boys, girls and their adult friends will all love. – S. Willet, authorMs. de Montigny excels at weaving a fantastical tale of adventure, bravery, friendship, mystery. The books carry an important anti-prejudicial theme (uncannily using unicorns) and never comes across as preachy. – Stuart R. West, authorSuzanne de Montigny has written a lovely story of family and bravery. The unicorns can do magical things, but they also seem real, like flesh and blood animals. As much as I liked the first book in the series, this novel was even better. Even though it’s written for children, I think all ages will enjoy reading SHADOW OF THE UNICORN I: THE DECEPTION. – Beverly McClure, author

  • The Deception of the Thrush

    Bruce P. Spang

    Paperback (RiverRun Select, July 28, 2014)
    In 1964, Jason Follett is an athlete and a fraternity brother at his small-town college. He tries to seem like every other student, but he is hiding a secret that could destroy his hopes of fitting in-he is attracted to other men. After Jason is caught vandalizing another student's room in an attempt to prove his masculinity, his repressed anger erupts and he gets into a violent fight with a friend. His days of being just another student on campus abruptly come to an end. Rejected by his classmates, Jason is drawn to the anti-war and civil rights movements. But even though he can stand up against war and racism, he still can't stand up for himself. As the nation is shattered by the horrors of the Vietnam War and the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and John F. Kennedy, Jason is torn: His parents want him to accept being drafted, but he doesn't want to risk his life for the war he protests. With the possibility of being forced to fight looming over his head, Jason must choose whether to appease his parents or finally be true to who he really is. "Bruce Spang's novel is a moving, authentic depiction of one young man's progress from the dread of being labeled a "homo" to an awareness of how honesty, be it sexual, political or personal, has its own particular and crucial rewards. The story Spang tells is generational but also perennial: the search for a meaningful identity in a world that seems hell-bent on thwarting that search. The lives of men can be a terrible thing to contemplate. Bruce Spang is both acute and compassionate in his rendering of this story." -Baron Wormser, author of Teach Us That Peace
  • The Sensory Deception

    Ransom Stephens

    Paperback (47North, Aug. 6, 2013)
    “I can’t believe I ate a seal. And really enjoyed it.” Moments after venture capitalist Gloria Baradaran experiences what it’s like to be a polar bear—really be a polar bear—she knows she’s found something revolutionary. Farley Rutherford and his team—migraine-tortured neurologist “Chopper” Vittori and über-geek engineer Ringo Hayes—have created sensory saturation, a virtual reality system that drops users into the psyches of endangered animals as they fight for survival, and they believe the profound experience could turn the indifferent masses into avid environmentalists. Ringo’s hardware is ready to go, but the pressures to get the system off the ground are immense. The money-men want more bang for their buck, and that includes bigger, more dangerous animals, and—more than anything—the ability to turn the machines into profitable games. But to Farely and his team, this is anything but a game. To some, in fact, this is a cause they’d kill for… The Sensory Deception is a mind-blowing, globe-trotting ride that will take readers from cut-throat Silicon Valley boardrooms to the pirate ships off the Somali coast to the devastated rain forests of the Amazon all to ask the question: What is a human life worth compared to that of an entire planet?
