It was only a wish
Connor Sullivan was painfully average. The very highlight of his existence was going to school, doing homework, and playing video games. He thought nothing would ever change that. Unfortunately, homework usually screws everything up.

A cut, some blood, and a hastily scrawled promise to sell his soul for his fondest wish...and all hell breaks loose. Literally. The Demons take him up on his offer. In a last ditch effort to keep his soul, he wishes to become one of the demons, or Fallen as they call themselves. Connor thought he had found a solution to his problem. He never fully understood the meaning of the phrase, "From the frying pan into the fire," until his wish was granted. The biggest catch?

Never ever fall in love with a human... And then she walked into his school. Beautiful, red-haired, funny...and blind. Connor's heart didn't stand a chance. Neither did the Fallen's rules. He had saved his soul, but could he find happiness without hurting the girl he loved? Or would secrets Jessica didn't even know she had destroy them all?

Murder at the War A Modern-Day Mystery with a Medieval Setting (Peter Brichter mystery)
Murder at the War - Mary Monica Pulver
Genre - Mystery

A murder at the war…
“I was just thinking that the Society for Creative Anachronism is actually very much like the old Norse myth of Valhalla: You can fight all day, get killed any number of times, and still be in great shape for the feast that night!”

…until one of the fighters, Thorstane Shieldbreaker, is genuinely murdered, when the fun turns to deadly seriousness as Lord Stefan von Helle and Lady Katherine of Tretower struggle to solve the crime. Was it one of their own SCA members, a mundane outsider, or Lady Katherine herself?
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is having a lovely re-enactment of a Medieval war...until one of the participants is actually murdered. It is up to Detective Peter Brichter and his wife Kori (whose SCA names are Lord Stefan von Helle and Lady Katherine of Tretower) to solve the crime!
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is a group of enthusiasts who research and selectively re-create the Middle Ages for knowledge and for fun. At their events, they wear historical clothing and call each other by medieval-style character names. Once a year, they meet to display their handiwork and stage a mock medieval war. 

In Murder at the War, policeman Peter Brichter (known in the SCA as Stefan von Helle) and his wife, Kori (known as Katherine of Tretower) go to the war for the fun. But the revelry turns deadly serious when a known troublemaker, Thorstane Shieldbreaker, is actually murdered. The local police, anxious to find the culprit, turn their attention to Peter and Kori as suspects once they find the two have quarreled with Thorstane. It is up to Lord Stefan and Lady Katherine, with their knowledge of the SCA, to clear their names and solve the crime.

The Society for Creative Anachronism is an odd mixture of pedantic realism and idealistic fantasy, full of complex individuals who have succeeded in living a dream without losing their hold on reality. Such a subculture provides a gold mine of unique and colorful characters, motivations, and methods for crime, and Pulver has made brilliant use of her material. With clarity and compassion, she follows her characters to the solution of a most unusual murder mystery. —Diana L. Paxson, originator of the Society for Creative Anachronism and author of Brisingamen and the Westria series.

“Dean Cassidy looks back on a life filled with hardship and remembers Theresa Wayman, the bright spark that lit up his world when he was eighteen. As an adult, many years later, Cassidy continues his struggle to be successful in life, but can't move past his betrayal and loss of Theresa.

Beyond Nostalgia is a poignant story about growing up, making choices, betrayal, forgiveness and moving on. Cassidy and Theresa find inspiration, joy and acceptance together in their world of dysfunctional families and economic hardships. But one night Cassidy, in a drunken stupor, makes a terrible choice that costs him his relationship with Theresa. Twenty-five years later, with the encouragement of his devoted wife, Cassidy focuses his sadness and angst into writing a book - a book that will eventually lead him to another crossroad in his life and redemption from his suffering.

Author Tom Winton has a distinct and engaging voice. His characters are compelling, struggling to grow and make the right choices in spite of being wracked with inner and outer turmoil. Winton's succinct writing not only defines his characters, but also captures and conveys the sense of time with rich precision - from the world of drugs, economic depression, racial tension and emotional tension as the young men are drafted to war, to the music and clothing styles of the time, that makes the story all the more vivid and appealing.

A moving portrait of a man's transformation through life, from a teenager inspired by his first love to a man who finally learns to accept his fate, Beyond Nostalgia is an illuminating and poignant tale…”

Lillia Wilkins is having a pretty normal day, filled with thoughts of school work, boys, and the occasional creepy stalker. Then suddenly the lights go out and she looks up to find a massive object as wide as the city hovering in the sky.

Chaos instantly erupts. People flee the city in droves. Even Lillia's own foster mother abandons her, leaving her all alone to care for the younger children. Luckily she happens upon Sherman, an alcoholic but crafty homeless man who knows how to navigate the chaotic streets of Louisville.

When an intruder burns down the house, Lillia and Sherman must find a safe place to take the children. They need food and clothing. They need a good night's sleep. They need to escape the city, now quarantined by the military.

Most of all, they need to answer the question: "What is the object?"
And if that's not enough, now they have to deal with the new mayor in town, attorney Barry Schafer, who wants to rob the city blind, starting by hiring a Westside gang to kill off all the police.
But Lillia has a secret. She found something--or did it find her? Either way, it might be the key to unraveling the mystery of the object . . . and maybe saving the world.
