The mission is over, but the most dangerous enemy is waiting at home.

Young Clara and Hawk are lauded as the heroes who ended the war.

On her own, without anyone to lean on, she lives in fear that her traitorous heart will be her downfall. So when an anarchist offers her a way out in exchange for information, she’s tempted to go. But government spies lurk in the shadows, and Luddite rebels have vowed to kill her and Hawk, making escape feel like suicide. Will Clara stay or risk making the dash toward freedom?

Supernatural Suspense Based on Scripture and the Private Revelations of the Saints

cOMET dUST

Eighteen month ago, the Earth survived a comet strike. Famine, economic depression, and soaring crime rates rode in on its tail. While the government scrambles for solutions, Gina Applegate vlogs about college life and current events. God doesn’t figure large in her life. Nonetheless, Gina thinks she’s a pretty good person until a mysterious prophesied event called The Warning gives her a glimpse of hell, shaking her fragile faith. As the world slips deeper into darkness, the gulf between the godly and the godless widens, leaving no middle ground. Like everyone else, Gina must choose a side.Inspired by scripture and real prophecies from the saints: 

Before the comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scourged by want and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent will be devastated by earthquake, storm, and tidal wave. It will be divided and, in great part, submerged . . . For in none of those cities does a person live according to the Laws of God. A powerful wind will rise in the North, carrying heavy fog and the densest dust, and it will fill their throats and eyes so that they will cease their butchery and be stricken with a great fear. ~Saint Hildegard (12th Century)

Comet Dust has a Christian-Catholic worldview, but it’s not squeaky-clean fiction. Expect some profanity, sexual situations, and violence.
