DARK ANGELSHubert Edward Devine
When young Will Alexander joins the notorious Dark Angels, his life is catapulted in dangerous yet thrilling directions. He trades on his native intelligence and motorcycle savvy to gain a place of respect among his one-percenter brothers—men with names like Shotgun, Stumpy, Frenchy Jack, Frantic Fred and Speedy. As a biker war between the Dark Angels and a rival club erupts, Will gravitates to the danger and excitement and ends up pushing the limits in a broiling cauldron of chaos and mayhem. He connects with Gloria—a beautiful, straight-speaking college student, who works as a stripper. Their love takes root as the violence spins out of control, and as detectives, Garrity and Akerman have Will in their crosshairs. At every turn, Will’s life begins to speed out of control, torpedoing him into an endless array of cut-throat brawls, deadly gunplay and corners unknown. But, as much as Will is drawn to the abyss, he yearns to understand his life’s path—to think the edifying thoughts of philosophy, to create art, to love deeply, to fill the gnawing void of his father’s tragic death in the Korean War—to come to a place where wild adventure is caressed by tenderness. Will wants to come home.

Four Crows A Boy—Vernon Oickle

What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails, and puppy dogs’ tails.
That’s what little boys are made of.

Maybe that’s what they’re made of in nursery rhymes, but in the rustic seaport of Liverpool, NS, little boys are made of much, much more. They’re made of things that defy logic . . . things that will chill you to the bone. In Liverpool, where the crows have reigned supreme for centuries, carrying out their missions that often blur the lines of good and evil, it’s been three years since the powerful birds swooped in to stop a psychotic killer on a murderous killing spree. Since then, they have faded into the background. But now that several young boys have arrived in Liverpool, four of the black avian warriors have resurfaced. And the town’s residents are thrust once again into a series of events that defy explanation, taking many of them on a journey beyond the realm of possibility—and reality.
