About this Book:

It was the time that today we call the Neolithic…a time before the Egyptian pyramids, a time before Stonehenge. It was the time of the early migrations of the Yamnaya people, moving westward from the Pontic steppe, which stretched from what is now Bulgaria to Kazakhstan. What we now call Doggerland once connected the British Isles to continental Europe, but it was sinking into the North Sea. Little more remained than islands and sandbanks…yet there were persistent tales of firm land that lay beyond those waters.

Every human and every animal must have a purpose in life. Serving our Master and his people, we made it our mission to keep watch over them and the surrounding forest. With our acute sense of hearing and discerning eyes, we never missed anything. It was in the exercise of our duties that we one day noticed a small group of migrants. Dangerous animals prowled this forest—and so did other people, perhaps the greatest danger of all. One of those migrants, Oane, understood the plants of the forest and used them skillfully. To survive, however, she must fight our Master—Viggo, the Chief of the Bollebarg tribe.

About this Book:

Igor Fenenko, a former research scientist, is a scary, scary man. Not only is he a massive bodybuilder with a spider tattooed on his face, he has also been infected with Pestis Manducans — viral cannibalism. Igor tried to resist indulging, but his research specimens smelled so delicious. Who did it hurt, really, to nibble a corpse? Caught, disgraced, and sent to a ‘rehabilitation’ center, Igor is now forced to live in a government-mandated Containment Center. He spends his days pressing wildflowers, growing blueberries, and doing his best to avoid human meat. More than anything, he wants a cure for the virus that has ruined his life. Igor’s brother, Karl, is also infected with Pestis. But unlike Igor, he does not live in a Containment Center. He lives down by the river, where he runs a cannibal rights group. At first, the group seems harmless enough, if a bit creepy and overzealous. But when Igor discovers their evil practices, he is forced to intervene. Aided and opposed by rich eccentrics who have their own agendas, Igor must use brains and muscles to find a cure while fighting the urge to turn brains and muscles into a delicious lunch.
