DragonMan by Ted Lazaris

 



Series Intro:
DragonMan is not your typical Superman/Batman comic-style adventure. 
It is about the adventures of Luke Starr, a superhero, yes, but he is so much more than that.
These are all stand-alone adventures, He and his sisters solve crimes and mysteries. They run Starr investigations detective agency. The audience for these books range from 7-16 years old, but can still be enjoyed by people of all ages. 
The amazing story of DragonMan was born at the dawn of the 21st Century, when the world, about to change forever, watched in disbelief as four passenger airliners crashed, not only into buildings and a field in Shanksville Pennsylvania but into the American certainty that the horrors of the outside world could not touch them at home.
It was into this world that a new kind of superhero emerged, one for whom the lines between good and evil are blurred. Is he friend? Or is he foe? No one knows for sure. What they do know, however, is that as a friend there is no one better.

The amazing story of DragonMan was born at the dawn of the 21st Century, when the world, about to change forever, watched in disbelief as four passenger airliners crashed, not only into buildings and a field in Shanksville Pennsylvania but into the American certainty that the horrors of the outside world could not touch them at home.

It was into this world that a new kind of superhero emerged, one for whom the lines between good and evil are blurred. Is he friend? Or is he foe? No one knows for sure. What they do know, however, is that as a friend there is no one better.




The Poseidon Encounter
DragonMan Series Book 2

 In Ted Lazaris's first fantasy adventure novel, Dragonman, the Adventures of Luke Starr, the reader was introduced to the likable Luke and his seemingly normal way of life growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Luke was portrayed as a quiet, average kid plagued by all the inherent problems of the typical American teen: dealing with a crush on a girl he's too shy to approach, pesky sisters constantly poking their noses into his business, bullies at school and exams to study for. But Luke, readers soon discovered, was burdened by a far greater weight than any of his peers, as he struggled to come to terms with his birthright as The Chosen One, savior of the distant world of Spellville. Not only that but, like hapless Peter Parker forced to juggle his complex life as Spider-Man while pursuing his love interest and his not-always-easy career, Luke had to learn to harness the enormous powers of Dragonman, his super alter-ego, a persona that regrettably did not come with an instruction manual.

In this second, action comic-like installment, Dragonman: The Poseidon Encounter, Luke seems to have come to terms with his legacy and appears well in control of his superpowers--which he will be called upon to use this time around to save the world from an evil demon who seeks to claim the souls of every human being on earth.

The mood of impending danger is set from the very first page when author Ted Lazaris takes off his gloves to delivering a knock-out of an opening scene: Five-year-old Bobby Blakely, running downstairs on the morning of his birthday, finds not the hoped-for brand new bicycle as a gift, but rather an enormous blue whale that has somehow "washed up" in the small lake on his parent's isolated farm. While many consider the whale's appearance a hoax, others believe it to be a sign of impending Biblical doom. And it is enough to rouse Luke's suspicions that worse is about to happen--which it does.

In a pace that never flags, Poseidon Encounter unfolds in a complex thread of differing tales, from an old-fashioned detective murder mystery to a science fiction fantasy, all neatly stitched together by an intriguing cast of characters, both good and evil and not-exactly-as-they-seem. An imaginative writer, Lazaris blends magic, mysticism, religion, and the fast-paced action of the comic book world into a book that fans of the first Dragonman tale will find hard to put down.






Face of the Unknown
DragonMan Book 3

This superhero fiction is all about the power of love and faith to overcome the evil that lurks in the darkness, whether we know it or not. The superhero fantasy asks the questions we’ve all asked at one point or another, was life really created the way the bible says? Or could it be that mankind as we know it is the remnant of a past civilization which once lived on another planet – or even deep below the surface of our own? This adventure tackles these questions with a good sense of unbiased investigation, and at the same time, opens our eyes to the powerful issue of ‘What If?’

One hopes and prays they will survive the night, retaining dominion over their own world. While the other will wage war in ways mankind can scarcely imagine, in a gruesome fight to end all life on Earth. The bloody heroic war to determine mankind’s fate, battles between man and beast, journeys to other worlds, the power of the mind over evil forces, and the triumph of love.






Descendants of Man
DragonMan Book 4

 Why did the Anunnaki come here? Did they create human hybrids? What is their plan for earth? And for us, the human hybrids? Why did some; the original humans (Bigfoot) resist?

Will we survive what is yet to come? -- Those who look for the truth, already know -- those that fail to search, are lost -- but those with an open mind will soon come to know...The Descendants Of Man.

Much of the story information that was obtained to create this story is believed to be true by many people around the world -- Fact or fiction -- You decide.

With the help of his great-grandfather Alaba and the other wizards of Spellville, Luke banished Unter into the inescapable Eon Vault. All was well.
Until a Supernova lends Unter the power to break free…
Now, the Evil One is back and stronger than ever.

Outraged by his previous defeat, Unter will hit Luke where it hurts most. Followers. Friends. Family.

While the Dragon is distracted by his loved ones in peril, the Evil One will begin to terraform both worlds for his dying race.

Luke must make a choice: the Earth or Spellville, his sister or the woman he loves…

A cat-and-mouse game with no rewards, only consequences.

In the distant past, long before people populated the Earth, and before animals roamed the planet, something terrifying and cunning made its home in the vegetation covering the planet like a soft green blanket.

And now, this perfect omniscient being... born from oblivion, has awakened and is ready to feed... God No Longer Rules Supreme... IT'S COMING.

As the author of the DragonMan Series I would like to share with you, my a lifelong struggle with dyslexia.
I have always struggled with the problem. In school, it was always terribly difficult for me to read what was right in front of me. And reading, writing, and spelling still to this day remain difficult for me. One thing I've learned despite having this learning disability, I can accomplish my goals, if I don't, get overwhelmed by the big picture... I just take things one step at a time.
DragonMan: Face Of The Unknown, authored by Ted Lazaris, who created DragonMan and wrote the series of novels, has accomplished the amazing feat of debuting at NUMBER #1 on AMAZON KINDLE, ahead of David Baldacci and James Patterson novels.

The Universe Chronicles Series by Claire Davon Genre: Paranormal Romance

 


Storming Time
The Universe Chronicles Book 3
by Claire Davon
Genre: Paranormal Romance 

Rescuing compromised Universe agents is nothing new for Zared Hersh. A fast car, a little rain-and-fog manipulation to cover his tracks, and his job is done. But when Hannah Nickels dives into his front seat, something about her aquamarine eyes strikes him like lightning.


Thank God she’s not psychic, or she’d be reading his hormones like a book.

Hannah’s been groomed to join Universe practically from the moment her time-freezing talent emerged. But recently, her power’s been glitchy. She knows she’s in trouble, and the last thing she needs is her instant attraction to Zared’s solid body and dark good looks.

When their escape is almost derailed by someone with a strange new light-manipulating gift, only Hannah’s chrono talent gets them safely back to Universe HQ. In the relative safety of Richmond, their relationship grows. But Hannah has a second, more dangerous power that few know about. And as her control slips, someone with a hidden agenda sets her up to fall—straight into Whisper’s trap.



Tracking Shadows
The Universe Chronicles Book 2


Since the day Jiana Falco was forced to join the paranormal agency Night Stars, she’s been planning her escape. She uses her bodyguard’s split-second of distraction to vanish into the shadows, and burns the last bridge by saving Quillan Hardis.


But now, locked in Quillan’s muscular arms, pinned by his calculating amber gaze, his invisibility talent shielding them both, she’s in even deeper trouble. If that’s possible.

Quillan didn’t get to Universe Corps’ highest echelons by being a fool. The rare shadow manipulator in his grip is too easy a prize to be anything but a setup. A pretty lure he should send back to Night Stars. Instead, he holds on—and in changing her fate, he seals his own.

Under a secret order to unlock her untapped power—by any means necessary—Quillan takes Jiana on the run with only a precog’s vague direction, and a spark of desire that blooms into something warm and genuine. But her fear of being clawed back into Night Stars’ control could drive Jiana so deep into the shadows nothing will get her out. Not even the light of Quillan’s love.

But her fear of Night Stars could drives Jiana so deep into the shadows nothing can lead her out. Not even the light of Quillan’s love.



Shifting Auras
The Universe Chronicles Book 1

Maya Wingfield was raised to trust no one—least of all the dueling U.S. and Russian paranormal agencies, Universe and Night Stars, who’d love to harness her mind-reading gift.


She thought Richmond a safe place to escape their influence and hide from a rising psychic malevolence that drove her out of San Diego. But when she gets yet another call to retrieve her drunken roommate, her mind shows her an amber-eyed Universe operative with an impenetrable net around his deepest secret—and a voice that sends shock waves of awareness down her nerve endings.

Maya’s curves and aquamarine eyes aren’t the only things that jolt Ian Sanderson’s mental shields, bringing sexual tension thrumming back to life. It’s a power his Universe-trained mind knows he shouldn’t trust. And a vulnerability that makes his telekinetic power burn in his palms to protect her.

But to Universe, she is just one of too many unanswered questions. A target for Whisper, a shadowy new group of paranormals with powers beyond anything Universe has ever seen. Once before, Ian failed to protect a sensitive from a brain-scrambling attack. He will not fail again . . . even if it means using his talent—or his body—to stop a bullet.



Claire can’t remember a time when writing wasn’t part of her life. Growing up, she used to write stories with her friends. As a teenager, she started out reading fantasy and science fiction, but her diet quickly changed to romance and happily-ever-afters. A native of Massachusetts and cold weather, she left all that behind to move to the sun and fun of California but has always lived no more than twenty miles from the ocean.
In college she studied acting with a minor in creative writing. In hindsight, she should have flipped course studies. Before she was published, she sold books on eBay and discovered some of her favorite authors by sampling the goods, which was the perfect solution. Claire has many book-irons in the fire, most notably her urban fantasy series, The Elementals’ Challenge series, but writes contemporary and shifter romances as well as.
While she’s not a movie mogul or actor, she does work in the film industry with her office firmly situated in the 90210 district of Hollywood. Prone to break out into song, she is quick on feet and just as quick with snappy dialogue. In addition to writing, she does animal rescue, reads, and goes to movies. She loves to hear from fans, so feel free to drop her a line.
