Using his own journey of discovery as the starting point, Kimball presents the 'other side of truth' - the world not as we have been told it is, but as we are being encouraged to imagine that it could become.

Book 4 of 4 in The Marked Ones Trilogy series Nearly everything about Patrick’s life has been a lie orchestrated by the Kakodemoss. The same group that murdered his parents, turned him into a cybernetic assassin, and performed untold experiments on him for fifteen years. Experiments that have left him unsure where the fabricated Patrick ends and where the true one begins. Or if there even is one. But if he is ever to make amends for the unthinkable act he committed against Nualla, Patrick will have to accept that he’s a deadly weapon that can kill…and probably already has. That as much as he’s a victim, he’s also a monster hiding behind an unassuming smile. But is there truly any way to ask forgiveness for trying to end someone’s life? And if there is, is it already too late? Travis Centrina didn’t ask for Parker to walk into his life. But she did, and he’s scared to death that screwing things up with her might lose him his one last chance at happiness. However, as much as he believes she might be his One, there is also no denying that fact that she, along with Patrick and Nualla, are keeping secrets from him. And if the events of the past have taught Travis anything, it’s that secrets get people killed. But as he investigates the dark mysteries of the past, Travis begins to realize that the people closest to him are far more deadly than he could have imagined. And that to ensure the safety of Karalia he may be forced to betray the ones he loves. Can the Centrina boys unravel the dark secrets of the past in time? Or will everyone they care about meet the same fate as those they have already lost? The Other Side of Truth is approx. 124,000 words long, and the final full length novel in this imaginative, genre smashing, urban scifi romance.

A - Well for one, the series is a young adult interracial romance featuring a strong female protagonist, and a hapa (half Japanese, half Irish) geeky male protagonist. It’s a fish-out-of-water story told from the reverse perspective of what we’re used to seeing in most paranormal romance series. In that it has a high school boy as the seemingly normal character, and a female protagonist as the paranormal love interest (in this case a daemon!). But mostly, The Marked Ones is different because it takes the genres of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, science fiction, and high school romance and puts them all into a mixing bowl before baking them into a romantic mystery set in San Francisco. Q - So, why should readers give these books a try? A - If you’re looking for something a bit different with diverse protagonists, unusual teen love triangles that’s full of twists and turns that keep you guessing? Than this romantic paranormal mystery series is right up your alley. Q - Can readers get the whole series in one go? A - You sure can! I’ve put together a digital boxed set that includes all three books in the 335,000-word trilogy and a special trilogy edition of the first book, Daemons in the Mist, for readers who want to snatch up the series in one swoop. And better yet, you even save 25% versus buying the individual books. Check out my author page here on GooglePlay for more details, and a full list of my available titles. And thanks for reading!

Download and read online The Other Side of the Bridge in PDF and EPUB From the author of the beloved #1 national bestseller Crow Lake comes an exceptional new novel of jealously, rivalry and the dangerous power of obsession. Two brothers, Arthur and Jake Dunn, are the sons of a farmer in the mid-1930s, when life is tough and another world war is looming. Arthur is reticent, solid, dutiful and set to inherit the farm and his father’s character; Jake is younger, attractive, mercurial and dangerous to know – the family misfit. When a beautiful young woman comes into the community, the fragile balance of sibling rivalry tips over the edge. Then there is Ian, the family’s next generation, and far too sure he knows the difference between right and wrong. By now it is the fifties, and the world has changed – a little, but not enough. These two generations in the small town of Struan, Ontario, are tragically interlocked, linked by fate and community but separated by a war which devours its young men – its unimaginable horror reaching right into the heart of this remote corner of an empire. With her astonishing ability to turn the ratchet of tension slowly and delicately, Lawson builds their story to a shocking climax. Taut with apprehension, surprising us with moments of tenderness and humour, The Other Side of the Bridge is a compelling, humane and vividly evoked novel with an irresistible emotional undertow. Arthur found himself staring down at the knife embedded in his foot. There was a surreal split second before the blood started to well up and then up it came, dark and thick as syrup. Arthur looked at Jake and saw that he was staring at the knife. His expression was one of surprise, and this was something that Arthur wondered about later too. Was Jake surprised because he had never considered the possibility that he might be a less than perfect shot? Did he have that much confidence in himself, that little self-doubt? Or was he merely surprised at how easy it was to give in to an impulse, and carry through the thought which lay in your mind? Simply to do whatever you wanted to do, and damn the consequences. –from The Other Side of the Bridge From the Hardcover edition.

Download and read online The Other Side of the River in PDF and EPUB Bestselling author Alex Kotlowitz is one of this country's foremost writers on the ever explosive issue of race. In this gripping and ultimately profound book, Kotlowitz takes us to two towns in southern Michigan, St. Joseph and Benton Harbor, separated by the St. Joseph River. Geographically close, but worlds apart, they are a living metaphor for America's racial divisions: St. Joseph is a prosperous lakeshore community and ninety-five percent white, while Benton Harbor is impoverished and ninety-two percent black. When the body of a black teenaged boy from Benton Harbor is found in the river, unhealed wounds and suspicions between the two towns' populations surface as well. The investigation into the young man's death becomes, inevitably, a screen on which each town projects their resentments and fears. The Other Side of the River sensitively portrays the lives and hopes of the towns' citizens as they wrestle with this mystery--and reveals the attitudes and misperceptions that undermine race relations throughout America.
