After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own:
Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.
Now, in a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they’ll need the help of some familiar demigods.
R.A.C.E. (Radical Association of Criminal Ethnicities) is a group on the verge of creating a new, highly addictive illegal drug. When several veteran officers are sidelined by corruption charges, an error in his police experience file qualifies parking officer Jon Rupret for membership in an elite squad— Operation Anti-R.A.C.E.— speedily set up to identify the criminals and stop the new drug before it can be sold on the street. Jon is partnered with jaded detective Philip Beadsworth, who’s none too thrilled with the situation.
The story follows the criminals’ desperate attempts to bully innocent chemists into creating the ultimate drug, and the police, as they attempt to track them down. R.A.C.E. is also a satirical and humorous look at the multicultural landscape of Toronto through Jon Rupret’s eyes.
Cheryl Erikson doesn’t like playing DEA agent, but when a dangerous new drug named Plast finds its way onto the streets of Dallas, and the dealers just happen to be vampires, then she has to take action.

It’s a task that becomes more difficult as she dodges assassination attempts; evades a nosy police detective who wants to peg her for a triple homicide; figures out what a shadow government organization wants from her; as well as deal with a powerful vampire who has a sudden interest in her activities.
Her path takes her through the Spiral X nightclub, where everything she thinks she knows, and everything she stands for, is challenged in ways she never imagined.
Where would you hide if you learned the CDC and a major pharmaceutical company unleashed a hyperdeadly microbe on the human race? The action/thriller Pandora’s Succession encompasses a real threat: Biological Terrorism. It can occur at any time and perpetrated by people that we’d never suspect.
