    Summary

    Richie Cunningham is a late bloomer. He's almost eighteen and still hasn't shown any sign of development. Physically, he looks his age, but he's not a beta like his father, not yet, anyway. A booster shot should do the trick, and spark that latent beta drive in him, but all it does is bring about a change nobody could foresee...

    Summary

    "Iolo, you've gone and got yourself trapped," Poe smiled sympathetically. "You sound like a husband and you haven't even signed the papers."

    "Well," Iolo shrugged, an idea slowly forming. "At least I have someone to holler at me. While here you stand, heading off to Havana all alone."

    Summary

    Sherrinford, California is a picturesque beach town, a perfect slice of Americana. It's quiet, sleepy, and that's how people like it.

    In the summer of 1961 the Holmes family sweeps into town, emigrating from England, and this perfect town will never be the same. The Holmes siblings - seventeen year-old Mycroft, sixteen year-old Sherlock, and fifteen year-old Eurus, are not your typical teens. They’re eerily smart and they can spill a stranger’s secrets just by silent observation. They’re also highly manipulative and sociopathic, Sherlock and Eurus especially, and when they want something they go after it and usually get it.

    The same holds true for when they want someone as well. For when the Holmes siblings encounter John Watson, Molly Hooper, and Jim Moriarty, they have a new mission---go after their objects of obsession---and make sure they’re theirs forever. Even if others have to get hurt.

    Summary

    "So you're a private detective," she said. "I didn't know they really existed, except in books. Or else they were greasy little men snooping around hotels."

    I didn't have much to say to that, so I let that drift.

    "Tall, aren't you?" she said.

    "I didn't mean to be."

    "Handsome too," she said. "And I bet you know it."

    I grunted.

    "What's your name?"

    "Lightwood," I said. "Alec Lightwood."

     

    Alec Lightwood is a young, honest private detective hired by Camille Belcourt to investigate her fiancé, who she suspects is hiding something scandalous from her. What starts out as a simple case turns out to be a lot more complicated than Alec bargained for, and when the death toll starts to rise, Alec finds his own life in increasing jeopardy.

But will one fatal incident and a guilty conscience have the power to shatter a relationship that was already rocky from the start?

    Summary

    The riff was nothing special. He'd heard it 30 times over the last few months, by different musicians on different guitars. But the way it echoed, the way the attack lingered just a moment too long, the way the next chord came through all catty-corner, almost sideways – well, that was different.

    Summary

    The creature standing outside the classroom window is something between a wild cat and a hound, with matted black fur and a disturbing mass of muscle stretched over its bones. One leg is grotesquely torn, angling outwards in a way that can only mean that it was broken by force. Hux feels a terrible twisting in his gut. The beast bares its teeth like it's ready to lunge, and Hux stands suddenly, eyes wide, and stumbles over an incomprehensible "What—" as the monster locks eyes with him.

    A few students look up at him, waiting for him to say something, but he can't seem to manage even a sentence when faced with all their bemused faces. He looks away from the class and out the window again, at the empty school grounds, the fallen leaves and the half-damp concrete, and something drops in his stomach.

    Summary

    "What can I get for you?" Jimin asked, placing his hands on the countertop lazily.

    The blond in front of him smirked, "How about a date?"

    JImin rolled his eyes and scoffed, turning to the soda fountain to get the blond a cup of water. He was attractive, but the blond was the perfect epitome of the guy that your mother warns you not to date and that just makes Jimin even more attracted to the blond.
