#5 Love Letters in the Wall: Agape Edition by Demetra Demi Gregorakis
Demetra Demi Gregorakis has found herself feeling that technology has overtaken love in the priorities of life.
In an age where whole relationships are carried out by texting, she remains a dreamer, a hopeless romantic, who wishes that her ‘Memories throughout her time she wishes she could keep in jars’ will inspire love, romance, and happy memories in her readers as she seeks – and hopes that we all find – that which she calls ‘Agapé love,’ the type of perfect love that transcends all others.
Her journey is the somewhat convoluted one which most of us take, ebbing and flowing through this stage and that, meeting the right one, the wrong one, the next one… love and adoration, heartbreak and happiness, they all appear here, in thoughts and poems, love letters and even text messages sent and exchanged – written from the ever-romantic heart.

Somewhere between dating her yuppie fiancé and planning their wedding in Chicago, Deb developed claustrophobia-a fear of enclosed spaces. I blame the yuppie. Deb couldn’t get on a plane for love that day, but she could do it 20 years later for money.
Money was worth dying for.
#7 Exile by Sophie Breeze

Captain Melsom, Mellania’s ruler, works beside Lucia, a malicious demon, to eliminate the young hybrids. The operation involves transferring the children to Earth where they will be immediately killed. Lucia is to be transported with them to oversee their termination. Upon arrival, things don’t work out quite as expected. The children have to draw on their powers to survive now, all the time trying to find Lucia before she can wreak her own chaos upon Earth.
