Walker Callaghan doesn’t know what happened to her. One minute she was living her teenage life in suburban Chicago…and the next minute, she was in a strange place and in a brand new school with absolutely no homework, no rules, and no consequences.

Walker Callaghan, 17, is dead.

She doesn’t go to heaven or hell. She lands at The Academy, a middle realm where teenagers have one thing in common: They were the morning announcement at their high schools because they died young.

These high school kids are now caught in a strange “in-between” zone where life hasn’t changed very much. In fact, this special teen limbo looks a lot like life in a quaint Michigan town complete with jocks, popular girls and cliques. “There are even cheerleaders in death,” Walker observes. It’s not a coincidence that the music teacher is a guy named Kurt who “used to have this band.” The drama teacher, Heath, is crush worthy because back in his life, he starred in some superhero movie.

Principal King explains the rules — there are none. Why? You can’t die twice.

There is no homework.
No tests.
No SATS.
You’re just there to learn because the human brain isn’t fully formed until you’re 24.

By the way, you can’t get hurt physically, so race your Harley off that hillside. But falling in love is the most dangerous thing you can do …because no one knows how long you’ll stay in this realm or what’s next.

“Losing someone you love would be like dying twice,” Walker says.

* * * * * *
Walker Callaghan has just arrived at the Academy after a tragic car accident. “Is this heaven or is this high school?” she asks.

She finds out her new life is a bit of both as she falls in love with tat-covered, bad boy Daniel Reid who is about to break the only sacred rule of this place. He’s looking for a portal to return back to the living realm.

He needs just one hour to retrieve his younger brother who strangely never arrived at The Academy. Bobby is an Earth Bound Spirit, stuck at a plane crash site that took both of their lives as their rich father piloted his private jet nose-first into a cornfield on Christmas Eve.

Walker loves Daniel and risks it all to go with him.

Have they learned enough to outsmart dangerous forces while transporting a young child with them? Can their love survive the fragmented evil parts of themselves that are now hunting them down as they try to find a way back to the middle?

At the Academy, you learn the lessons of an after-lifetime.

Syrina’s ✩✩✩✩✩ Review!

Mind Benders/Twists

d60157c07fcb5bf7cd0ec2eb8ea6a9e3[1]

Absolutely enthralling and utterly original, this unique and refreshing story boggles the mind and takes you into a different perspective as the author takes us into different realms between heaven and hell:  PURGATORY! 

C.L. Gaber has a way with words and her style of writing completely saturates your imagination, the story is full of emotions, you get the feels, you clearly become part of each character.  The plot keeps you entertained and it flows so well you are constantly turning the page to get to the next chapter.  Gaber’s  writing style was fresh, distinct, and original.

Heros and Heroines!

071762b0d77716baf2330cf9e7162b5b[1]  

Each character is written so detailed you become transfixed and racing to read more of Walker and Daniel’s journey in the afterlife or in between world as they try to come to terms with the future as they wish it. 

10563060_782508521856154_641377631572555605_n[1]

 Be prepared to for your mind to get twisted, nicked, knacked, boggled and totally mind phucked!  All in all it was a beautiful story and I was enchanted!

Fantasy Romance Series, The Trilogy Begins

Jeramiah Poe isn’t just any character in the Realm of Fiction; he is Muse Master—Destiny Diviner—Mysterious Miskriat. Being of neither the Traditional Genre Provinces nor Independent, Poe enjoys an eternal lease on life, so long as his Scribbler keeps him out of publication.

Poe meets Kane, a seven-year-old boy from the Independent Horror Province, where he learns ancient codes are being broken and the horror that should be an act, is real.

But the evil clutching Octava is not new and Seven Arks have been sent to Earth to stop it.

Only something has gone wrong and Poe is commissioned as the 8th Ark of Octava to discover what has become of the Seven.

But his passage to Earth comes with revelations he’s not prepared for. Not only does his Scribbler not know of his existence, he’s a she that his human form seems allergic to.

Poe soon realizes that with each Ark he locates, his powers grow along with his feelings for the Scribbler. And the enemy will try and use both to gain control of the two realms.

Excerpt

“Mr. Poe?” Poe turned abruptly at the worried sound of Kane’s voice, and panicked at seeing his body had gone translucent. “I have to go now, Mr. Poe.”

“What’s wrong?” Poe reached for him and his hands passed through the boy. “Kane! Are you dying in your story?”

“I have to get back Mr. Poe. They’re coming now.”

“Why are you crying? You’ll come back first chance. I’ll be here. Do you know the name of your story, Kane?”

“I’m scared, Mr. Poe.”

The real fear in the boy’s voice alarmed him and before he could ask anything else, he was gone. A flash of panic sent Poe shooting into the air and out of the bog, aiming for Octava’s Athenaeum. He landed too quickly and went sprawling for several feet before bounding up and running up the hundred flight stairs of the realm’s library. Poe flashed his credentials as he walked in and the head Athenaeum Officer nodded. He didn’t have time to fiddle with the intricate Library’s search program and found instead the Librarian. “I need help locating a story, it’s direly important.”

The woman turned ever so slowly, her curt expression matching her pristine white dress-suit—the Athenaeum’s dress code. “Genre?”

“Horror,” he shot out.

She raised a brow for more information and Poe shook his head. “I don’t know, search them all.”

Her painful pace indicated the necessity of speed one never needed in Octava. “Do you happen to have a title?”

“No.”

She shook her head with raised brows at the screen. “There are thousands here. We could be here all day and evening.” But her tone indicated that was quite fine, she had nothing better to do.

“Kane!” Poe forgot he could search by name in the cast. “There’s a character named Kane in it.”

“Last name?”

“Not sure, I don’t think so, I think it’s his first.”

“I mean do you have a last name.”

“No, I don’t.” Poe wanted to strangle himself for not getting something so simple all this time.

“Traditional or non?”

“I don’t know,” Poe gasped.

The woman eyed Poe with confused concern before fluttering her fingers over the glass surface of the screen. “I find four possible matches.”

“The boy is seven. Look for a seven-year-old.”

“Ah. Sons of Insurrection. Has to be that one. It’s Independent and an SG. Paranormal Horror.”

“Coordinates,” Poe begged, trying not to yell.

He ran out the second she gave the information and took to the air upon exiting the building, barely missing several security officials in winged flight. Within five minutes, he landed at the story set. A dingy, rundown hospital with a dilapidation befitting the best of any horror story. The energy in the air sent a sensation through Poe that drew tiny bumps to the surface of his skin and a tingling along his spine.

Octava’s laws forbid anybody to barge right into a Story and so Poe had to carefully study the set around him. Spotting a lower window at the very bottom of the building, he hurried to it, remembering Kane’s comment about his playhouse under the stairs. Lowering to the ground he peered through the darkness. Nothing. Poe listened, closing his eyes, fighting to connect with the energy inside the insidious place.

OCTAVA TEASE BURST OF LIGHT

   Bio

Welcome to my world

My name is Lucian Bane and I’ve heard from many that I’m the odd one out. But really, I’m just a Husband, an Author, and a Christian Dom. Ah, maybe that’s the one that makes everybody pause. Oxymoron? Not at all.

As an author, I like to write stories—paranormal erotica—contemporary erotica and fantasy romance about men who honor, cherish, and protect the women they love. But more importantly, I also attempt to make these stories a reality for couples everywhere by teaching them in the form of fiction how to add heat and passion to marriages and relationships that might not have it. Teach them how to build life-long commitments that form strong families, like I have with my own beautiful wife.

I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to teach them how to bring out the Dom that exists within the men they call boyfriend or husband.

As young men, our inner Doms need a master to train them. I once bowed to my inner Dom’s reckless and tireless desires, but when I gave myself to God and conformed my will to His, the transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is simply a real man.

5 roses – Clever & Unique Creativity

c28df879d600c3244ccaa9c1e7a70794[1]

  This clever and inventive way at looking at reality through the eyes of a fictional story brings one into a different perspective.  This is a paradox of modern day fairytale folklore and delves deep within your psyche.  The way the Author creates his characters and brings forth the long forgotten rhymes and tales is pure talented magic.  The balance between realism and fantasy is genius and completely imprints all genres into one unique and fascinating romantic, suspenseful, thrilling delight.   

“Look at me!”  Kane chomped quickly on his carrot.  “Ehhh.. what’s up doc!?”

5 -romantic hearts  – couples connecting

The thing about Jeremiah Poe is his outward compassion and compulsion to ensure everyone else around him is happy and always supersedes his own needs.  The connection between this unique couple is chalked full of emotion as they  begin their journey together, you feel everything the author is describing to you as they explore their fascination toward each other.  Every simple laugh, move, and touch they share is magnified by their need to know more, share more and experience everything.

“You’re going to get it.  You’ll get it how I say.  Like I say.  When I say, Scribbler.  I am Jeramiah Poe.  Muse Rider – Diviner of Destinies… and you are my Muse.”  ~Jeramiah Poe~

5 erotic lips loving lusty scenes

Lucian Bane is not known as an erotic artist for nothing, yes he gives Jeramiah Poe his sexy time!  These incredibly spicy escapades left me heavy breathing, heart pounding, blood rushing to every nerve, and writhing in some sort of painful yet rewarding fulfilling wonder!  The fair spinster, Charlotte knows how to weave a powerful seduction spell all OVER her naïve hunk-o-hero!

“My… what a great big penis you have.  The better to fuck you with my dear.”

~Charlotte a.k.a. J.P. Howe~

5 tears – emotional-thrilling-dramatic

The emotional discovery these characters brings out in you is everlasting.  Kane is the real hero in this story and brought to life as you go through all feelings of rage, laughter, love, angst, and horror.  This little light of love has the power to destroy the most darkest of souls.  This character alone will keep you coming back for more, he brings out all the protective instincts, care, and nurturing parenthood could and ever would bring.

Open up your portal of musical imagination readers, this author has brought the BOOM down on fantasy/reality evolution.

“Fiction is just a mirror of reality for the most part.  Many things that happen in fiction don’t even happen here.  But as far as pain and sadness.  Joy and love, life and death, it’s all real here.  Here it’s real.”

~Lucian Bane~
