Letting Lier and Finding Pax

by Harper Moon

For refusing the crown and renouncing his title, Prince Lier was eternally banished from the planet of Arden. After finding asylum in a Deep Space colony, he took a position in a bordello as the Master of Ceremonies. During Lier's exile, Emperor Sardius I conquered Arden and slaughtered Lier's people. From the destruction arose a new species dependent on blood. Seizing the opportunity, Sardius praises vampirism and blueprints mass blood manufacturing with Lier's blood as the key. Lier is not only the last of his kind, but his blood is strangely addictive. On a mission to capture Lier, Commander Raze, son of Sardius, can't help but try it for himself. When he does, he experiences strange flashbacks of himself with Lier. Tense relations between captor and captive blur the line between past and present. During the perilous journey to Arden, forces opposed to Sardius attempt to rescue their lost prince. Raze's mission changes from retrieval to survival. Soon it becomes clear that, although neither man recognizes what the other has become, this meeting is not their first. And by no means will it be their last.

Volumen 1 de la Serie Cortar y CorrerUna serie de asesinatos en la ciudad de Nueva York tiene desconcertados tanto a la policía como al FBI, y sospechan que el responsable es un asesino que envía un mensaje indescifrable. Pero cuando dos agentes federales asignados a la investigación son asesinados, el FBI toma un interés más personal en el caso.

Auf & Davon

by Abigail Roux Madeleine Urban Feliz Faber

Buch 1 in der Serie - Ty & ZaneEine Serie von Morden in New York City setzt FBI und Polizei gleichermaßen unter Druck. Hinter allen Morden wird ein einzelner Täter vermutet, der eine kryptische Botschaft zu senden scheint. Doch durch die Ermordung der beiden FBI-Agenten, die mit den Ermittlungen befasst waren, wird der Fall für das FBI zur höchsten Priorität. Dass sein letzter Fall ein Fehlschlag wurde, lag nicht an Special Agent Ty Grady; er ist zwar großspurig und aggressiv, aber unbestreitbar der Beste in seinem Job. Dennoch wird er von der verdeckten Ermittlung abgezogen und stattdessen mit der Aufklärung der New Yorker Morde betraut. Zwischen ihm und seinem neuen Partner Special Agent Zane Garrett ist es Hass auf den ersten Blick. Garrett ist ein FBI-Agent wie aus dem Bilderbuch: ernst, nüchtern und konzentriert. Als Partner sind sie unvereinbare Gegensätze, sprichwörtlich der gute und der böse Bulle--das klassische ungleiche Paar. Beiden ist sofort klar, dass ihre Partnerschaft ein größeres Hindernis für den Erfolg ihrer Ermittlungen darstellen wird als die Tatsache, dass der Mörder so gut wie keine Spuren hinterlässt. Noch ehe ihr Spezialauftrag richtig begonnen hat, schlägt der Mörder erneut zu--aber diesmal greift er seine Verfolger direkt an, und plötzlich werden die Jäger selbst zu Gejagten. Grady und Garrett werden ihre Differenzen überwinden und zusammenarbeiten müssen, um nicht zu den nächsten Opfern des Mörders zu werden.
