The adventures of the Ghost Hunters continue - with more exotic locations and hair-raising paranormal adventures than ever before: This collection features four women, all invited to Earth, with unique super-abilities - who each could save or destroy humankind. Each came to this planet for their own reasons, deeply flawed. Victims of time and circumstance. Any one of these, just by themselves, could end all life on this planet in a heartbeat. Why would anyone want to assemble a team of feminine time bombs? Maybe to get them to save their own lives... All in short reads that fit into the time you have to read. Delicious mental snacks that will leave you with new ideas to consider long after the entertainment is over. This anthology contains: - The Training: Tess - The Training: Sylvie - The Training: Star - The Training: Mysti Excerpt: WHEN SHE ADMITTED TO hurting three other young women who came to me for help. I stood up from the round table, The chair behind me scooted back. My hands were clenched into fists, although I then forced them to relax. The atmosphere in that main room of the Western saloon went cool, or it felt so to me. I had three girls upstairs who had gone unconscious, all of which possessed unique supernatural abilities. Bending time and space. A trained warrior who could throw disintegrating fireballs from her bare hands. And the last was able to generate the heat and radiation of a star in space. And here was the person who admitted to knocking them all out, burning two of them, and various cuts to their bodies through bulletproof clothing. For me to get into any physical conflict with her would be foolhardy at best. Suicidal at worst. Hami and Gaia also stood at this. Gaia was more to worry about than any of us in the room. But her skills as an Earth goddess were a bit of a blunt instrument. Sinking whole continents at a gesture was more her trademark. Hami was better at cooking and healing - but it was her and I standing there that kept Gaia from taking any action, regardless of how she felt about this stranger. The golden-headed woman lowered her insulated hood and padded toward us in soft-soled, high-topped boots. 'I've heard about you, John of the Ghost Hunters, and read all about the Lazurai you've written up. Those two factors brought me here. And, as much as it may have just upset you, I've come to you for help. 'Because I'm dying.' Scroll Up and Get Your Copy Now.
Four women, with unique super-abilities - who each could save or destroy humankind. Each came to this planet for their own reasons, deeply flawed. Victims of time and circumstance. Any one of these, just by themselves, could end all life on this planet in a heartbeat. Why would anyone want to assemble a team of feminine time bombs? Maybe to get them to save their own lives... (Contains the complete 4-part anthology.) Excerpt: I looked at Gaia worried face, and then to Hami's. 'Would it do any good to see the crater where it happened?' Gaia shook her head 'no'. 'If you consider this table the crater...' She places the salt and pepper shakers near the center, and a paper napkin dispenser to one side, half way to the table edge. 'Tess and Silvie were in the middle, Star was up on the side.' She tipped the pieces on their sides to show roughly how the girl's bodies were laying. The salt and pepper shakers were laying at right angles to each other. 'And Star was face down?' 'Yes, and her head was toward the edge of the crater.' I considered this. 'So their burns weren't necessarily from Star.' 'Unless she burned them first and then was moving away.' '...and went unconscious afterward, like she collapsed when we found her.' Hami put her hand on top of mine. She knew how much I was taking this personally, by how I was forcing myself to study the 'crime scene'. Gaia looked over the positioning again. 'But we didn't see tracks behind her, and the radiation wasn't any higher than normal. If it had been, Jean and I would have drenched that place in water to cool it off, like last time.' 'That clothing they all wore was nearly tear-proof. The tessies made it, and it's more like a woven steel that a bullet couldn't even get through. Yet their clothing was ripped on all of them. The only thing that could do that would be the tessies themselves.' Gaia raised an eyebrow at that.'But aren't they friendly to Tess? Like almost part of her? Her clothing shouldn't have been torn.' 'And as well, I've seen Silvie's fireballs dissolve a thick, braided cord of that stuff. If Star had gone 'nova' on them, it would have melted that side of their clothing.' Rochelle scooted her chair closer to mine, and put her arm around the back of it. 'Not exactly a locked-door mystery, but close.' I nodded. 'All this points to someone else being present and causing this somehow.' The screen door swung open at that, and we all heard some soft feet pad in on the tongue-and-groove wood floor. A green hood of her insulated jacket covered straight strawberry-blond hair, parted in the middle. That all framed a pair of light green eyes, a petite nose, and full rose-red lips. Her soft-soled, brown leather boots climbed up her legs to disappear beneath the bottom edge of the long, quilted jacket. Her look was serious, but calm as she took in the three of us. 'That someone else &#8211; would be me.' (Contains the complete 4-part anthology.) Scroll Up and Get Your Copy Now.
