Austin Kelly is about to learn a lesson: Be careful when you pray for God to change you, because He answers prayer. Even though he's a Sunday School teacher, Austin's faith in Jesus Christ is no match for his fear of rejection from others. Lizzie Kelly has more courage than her husband, but struggles to find fulfillment and meaning in her job at their church. The couple's friends aren't faring much better. Computer tech Daniel Cabrera fights disappointment with the direction his career has taken, and even more frustration with the church youth he teaches. His wife, Jackie, strives to maintain a sense of control over her life, but it's quickly faltering. Faced with churches dying across New York City, the four Christian teachers have a cry in their hearts for their lives to make a difference.

God answers their cry by throwing them into a world that looks like a nightmare version of the United States. Everything is so similar, yet totally different, starting with the fact that Christians are nearly extinct after decades of persecution. They soon discover it is a fascist nation, where anyone who professes faith in Christ risks their life. The four travelers encounter a group of teenagers that turn out to be one of the last surviving churches, led by their high school teacher, Eric Peterson. With no visible way to get home, Austin, Lizzie and their friends join the underground church in their fight to spread the Gospel while avoiding the National Police. Their task is made even more difficult when revival breaks out in the local high school and draws unwanted attention, but they know they can't stop until their work is complete and the Lord makes a way for them to go home...if there is one..

Little Deadly Things
Little Deadly Things - Harry Steinman
Genre - Techno-Thriller
Rating - R
4.2 (56 reviews)
Free until 27 December 2012
When abusive parents raise brilliant children, you might end up with a saint, or a killer...or one of each.
Little Deadly Things is the place where science meets the psyche, where humanity's future is in the hands of a madwoman and the family that must stop her.

The seeds of an apocalyptic race--to save mankind or to destroy it--were sown in the earliest years of two scientists. Young Eva Rozen witnessed her sister's brutal murder, and barely escaped with her life. She found refuge from madness in the orderly world of science. Twenty-five years later, this master of nanotechnology is the world's richest woman... and the most dangerous.

Marta Cruz also endured a troubled childhood. Her mother's death and her father's incarceration left her an orphan, and a crippling disease left her in pain. Marta's refuge? A tropical rain forest where she discovers plants with miraculous healing properties under the tutelage of her shamanistic grandmother.
The two girls meet in high school and form an uneasy friendship that lasts through college. Eva wants power, profit--and Marta's husband. She offers to fund Marta's public health dreams in exchange for the ailing physician's knowledge of plant-based medicines. Together, they build the world's largest nanotech manufacturer.

When the unstable Eva has a psychotic break, and attacks the people who rely on her for survival, only Marta can stand between Eva and the death of millions. But Marta is a healer, not a fighter, and must rely on her husband and teenaged son, a boy who faces a life-or-death challenge well beyond his years.
Here is a chilling look at a future that is already on our doorstep--and a study of the two women who will decide the fate of mankind.
