Six teens struggle to discover the source of their strange and horrific abilities in this first book of the Star Shards Chronicles. Dillon has the terrifying power to create massive amounts of destruction with the slightest tweak of his will. Deanna is so consumed by fear, it has become like a black hole, drawing to her the very things that terrify her. Then, when the glare of a supernova sixteen light-years away illuminates the night sky, they have a vision: There are six of them out there, all teenagers, and all suffering from supernatural afflictions that disfigure their bodies and souls. Only by finding one another will the six ever be strong enough to defeat these mysterious forces that, bit by bit, are devouring their souls from the inside out. Acclaimed author Neal Shusterman 'combines personal quest, horror, and science fiction into an absorbing exploration of good and evil, guilt, forgiveness and personal responsibility' (VOYA) in this thrilling start to a riveting trilogy.

Until We Have Faces

Author: Michael Nye Narrator: Joe Hempel Release Date: July 2020

In a style reminiscent of John Cheever and Alice Munro, Michael Nye's second collection of stories, Until We Have Faces, contends with transfixing themes: marital and familial estrangement, ways of trespass, the intractable mysteries and frights of modern life, the uncertainty of knowledge and truth, the gulfs between people and the technology we use, the frailty of our economic lives-while underlining throughout the persistency of love.

The Pocket Guide to the Polyvagal Theory: The Transformative Power of Feeling Safe Audiobook

The Pocket Guide to the Polyvagal Theory: The Transformative Power of Feeling Safe

Author: Stephen W. Porges Narrator: Joe Hempel Release Date: June 2020

When The Polyvagal Theory was published in 2011, it took the therapeutic world by storm, bringing Stephen Porges's insights about the autonomic nervous system to a clinical audience interested in understanding trauma, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. The book made accessible to clinicians and other professionals a polyvagal perspective that provided new concepts and insights for understanding human behavior. The perspective placed an emphasis on the important link between psychological experiences and physical manifestations in the body. That book was brilliant but also quite challenging to read for some. Since publication of that book, Stephen Porges has been urged to make these ideas more accessible and The Pocket Guide to the Polyvagal Theory is the result. Constructs and concepts embedded in polyvagal theory are explained conversationally in The Pocket Guide and there is an introductory chapter which discusses the science and the scientific culture in which polyvagal theory was originally developed. Publication of this work enables Stephen Porges to expand the meaning and clinical relevance of this groundbreaking theory.

Kaiju: Battlefield Surgeon Audiobook

Kaiju: Battlefield Surgeon

Author: Matt Dinniman Narrator: Joe Hempel Release Date: April 2020

A private server. A digital playground. An alliance of the world's most sadistic, most depraved minds. A place to bring their prey, to hone their skills. Kaiju: Battlefield Surgeon. Survival horror. One of the most brutal, most terrifying full-immersion games ever made. A place where fantasy characters such as elves and dwarves clash with technology, where giant monsters roam the hills, entrusted with protecting the gates of heaven from the demons who would tear it all down. A game where one plays the last of the battlefield surgeons: a healer tasked with keeping the behemoths alive at all costs. But on this server, they don't care about the game. That's not why they're here. They've come because of the game's most unique feature: Full pain. Realistic anatomy. The ability to bring their victims well beyond the body's normal breaking point. And most importantly, the ability to bring them back and do it all over again. Trapped in a bloody, merciless nightmare, Duke only has one goal. To survive. And in order to survive, he must play the game. He must win the game. And to do that, he must become the most cruel, most ruthless monster of them all.

I Love You, More: Short Stories of Addiction, Recovery, and Loss From the Family's Perspective Audiobook

I Love You, More: Short Stories of Addiction, Recovery, and Loss From the Family's Perspective

Author: Blake E. Cohen Narrator: Joe Hempel Release Date: March 2020

The compulsion to use substances tends to drain every ounce of life from an individual, but this is often equally as true for their family. Most family members do not know where to turn for support and guidance when a child, parent, or spouse becomes ill. Society offers little to educate the public or destigmatize the problem of addiction. I Love You More is distinct from other books on the market on addiction as it is meant to be an emotional education on the family systems affected by addiction using three fictional short stories, all with very different endings. These three powerful stories have common threads of hope, pain, mistrust, grief, worry, change, acceptance, belief, and the constant presence of varying levels of sanity across a broad spectrum. I Love You More offers insight into the various perspectives and experiences of family members who have dealt with the harrowing disease of addiction. The goal of this quick, accessible book is to be the conduit that allows you to enter the body and mind of a substance abuser and their family, to see the world through their eyes as they navigate their way through one of the most heart-breaking and gut-wrenching hardships they will ever face.
