I'm not sure, but I believe the Nephilim are the descendants of the fallen angels. The Rephaim are the fallen angels themselves.

Radiance : Love after Death
Something strange was going on in Lily Dale. Marena Jacobs went there to search for the only man she would ever love. David had vanished and she was beginning to think he was gone forever. The small scrap of paper with angelic script on it was all she had to go on.
Gabe, a man with psychic abilities, befriends Marena and they stumble upon an incredible secret about the town's people no one would ever believe.
Gabe's abilities are no match for Samuel's though, who has powers of his own. He is from an ancient sect of fallen angels called the Nephilim, and the one goal he has is to seduce Marena and destroy the love she has for David. You will believe that true love never dies.

Rashun David says:
There were eight of them; each with a glowing symbol on their forehead; each with a different gift: the first changed rock into gold, the second healed physical infliction, the third could teleport, the fourth could walk on water, the fifth could fly, the sixth could command nature, and the seventh could bind evil spirits. But the eighth...his powers remained a mystery, yet he was the only one who could be seen clearly...it was a boy wearing a red hoodie and in his hand, he carried a baseball bat.

These were the Eight, chosen by God, to bring hope back to the world.

Kebec Maslow says:
During the second half of the 20th century, the reports of births of people with extrasensory abilities were confirmed, although initially it was just a few cases, the number of births with the phenomenon "Esper" has increased with the passage of year. However, that event also was accompanied by the appearance of creatures of unknown origin and of great power that makes them almost invulnerable to traditional weaponry, fortunately, those creatures (which were called "Worms") were vulnerable to the skills of Espers.
All these circumstances led governments and institutions to adapt to the benefit of the new humanity, and in some cases, getting to marginalize those who do not possess the gifts.

The main story is based on the life of Maebara Rikuo, a 16 years with the appearance and sweetness (but not naivety) of a 11 year old boy, who with much effort enters into "Akayama Academy", a private school for good students and medium-high level Espers.

Years after an artist captures a macabre vision during World War I, his paintings unleash their remarkable powers onto a museum and all who dare to enter the Projection Room.

When fledgling artist Georges Bosque has a near-death experience on the battlefield during World War I, he believes he sees two men harvesting the souls of the dead and dying. Haunted by his macabre vision, Georges is determined to capture them in his sketchbook and, in his last days, on two large canvases. But despite Georges' pleas to destroy both paintings after his death, his family ignores his request, leaving the paintings with his aging widow.

Years later, his widow sells both paintings to a Milwaukee museum that is testing a new technology that projects images and allows patrons to experience art three dimensionally. But as the technology's inventor, Bruce Mallory, art director Geoffrey Cavanaugh, and his protégé Noelle Walker are realizing the benefits of the technology, two others-Ryan Barbieri, rebellious museum employee, and his friend, Michael Grout-decide to test the technology on Bosque's paintings. Unfortunately, just as the two young men discern that Georges did indeed capture something on the other side of the grave, their discovery causes dire consequences for anyone who enters the Projection Room.

In this gripping tale, two paintings hidden from the world for years unleash their powers onto an unsuspecting museum and a group of people completely unprepared for what awaits them.

Artist Wassily Kandinsky once said that it was the artist's goal to bridge the gap between the spiritual and material worlds. This story asks the question, "What if some artists and some masterpieces actually succeed?"

Tripping the Night Fantastic (Charlie Deavon 1) is a `Whodunit', but it is far from the traditional set up. There is a murder, there is a sleuth, and there is a solution, there is also an awfull lot of drug/alcohol related lunacy. Charlie Deavon is a writer and meets the soon to be murdered Amelia Heart in a pub (she's a fan of his) and soon she winds up dead. There are a number of suspects, all friends, and Charlie and they try to solve the case together.

In the tradition of Sherlock Holmes (but taken to the extreme) the three men, what with the stress of it all, turn to a new drug called Merlin. From then on they trip and hallucinate their way through to its conclusion.

When Matthew and Beth Elias rent a cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains they anticipate four days of fun and relaxation.

Thank you.

Here you go:
"Crystal Clear" A Supernatural Mystery
Written by: R. C. Drake Edited by: Nancy L. McClain

Where do you turn when you think you've lost everything in the world that matters to you? At that point in your life you are quite vulnerable and extremely confused. You know you must accept the losses you have suffered but you are unable, or unwilling to do this. Such a tragic loss can be devastating. That is exactly what has occurred in Susan's life. She is unable to cope with the loss of her family members. She refuses to accept what has happened and allows her imagination to take control in order to deal with her losses.

A mysterious entity has been allowed to enter into our world, causing two families lives to become intertwined. Hearts will be torn between what is desired, and what is necessary. Many difficult choices must be made. The strength of a mother's love will be tested to its limits. Ghosts, an evil entity, and a psychic clash in a battle for the possession of a soul. However, the souls of many are at stake, and if good is not victorious in this battle the hereafter could be changed forever.

I'm mighty thankful to the increase in sales this month. It seems the subject matter has hit a nerve, for which I am very pleased.

Everyone's on a diet at this time of year...except me. Want an amusing but thought-provoking read? THE FAT BAG stuck between a rock cake & a hard plaiceby Brit author, Pearl Barley. The 5* star reviews keep coming.

It takes you on the journey of the hapless yo-yo dieter - real life humour that many can relate to, punishing and suffering for a battle that is never won. Described as Bridget Jones' Diary-esque (big baggy knickers sadly appropriate) telling it like it really is with no frills. And it's all about the struggle.

This partial review says it all:

"Reading Pearl Barley's book is like having a conversation with your wise and hilarious best friend. Anyone who has battled the ups and downs of "The Bulge" will relate to this book".

As indicated above, it's practically the story of my life. I've lost weight hundreds of times; I just can't keep it off! I've therefore put these dieting diary entries together and the fat bag title is a play on words that resonates throughout the whole book, which includes chapters entitled:

"This Little Piggie Went to Town",
"Mind Over Platter",
"Not All Menus Are Created Equal" and
"My Cup Runneth Over"!

Please note, in case of disappointment, that you won't find any dieting tips or reasonable advice within the pages, but if it's an easy read and slice-of-life humour you're after, curl up in a chair with a cuppa and a packet of biscuits and get stuck in! Only $2.99 (Kindle) and also available in paperback.

PS. It even had a Christmas chapter entitled, Turkey, Trimmings & all the Stuffing.

Cat's Journey: Ghost Gold
A lesson to be learned from a ghost.

From an early age prospector 'Cat' Catlin believes that wealth is the door to happiness. His search for riches takes him over most of the American mountain west.

He spends a winter with a tribe of Jicarilla Apaches and marries Red Wing, the daughter of the chief. Their wanderings take them to the land of the Nez Perce where they are welcomed into the tribe.

In a U. S. army attack by Colonel John Gibbon, Red Wing is killed. Bitterly, Cat returns to his hunt for gold.

His quest ultimately ends in a hauntingly beautiful canyon. It is there that he finds the mother lode of gold that he's spent half a lifetime searching for. Strangely it does not bring the satisfaction he expects. He yearns for something more. With the help of an ancient Indian Spirit he finds it.

He's spent a large portion of his life looking for wealth in the wrong places.

Two Pair (Quadruple or Nothing)

It's the first in a four part series. The second book is currently being written.

Ashburg, California; the city that's split into rich and not rich, the upper class and the middle class, the snobs and the down-to-earth...that's how the teenagers perceived it, anyway. And it all stemmed from two schools' rivalries. The rivalry has grown now that there are a set of twins that go to Ashburg Arts and a set of twins that go to Ashburg Academy that don't see eye to eye.

Reagan and Ronan Jacoby thought that their only problem was wondering if their cop father, Elijah would make it home from work every day. That is, when he wasn't trying to keep them out of trouble. They didn't think their father dating would complicate things even further.

Savannah and Mickayla Powers thought their only problem lied in the intense dislike they had of each other. They should be classified as fraternal twins rather than identical. The only thing they can agree on is that their mother, famous fashion designer Dallas, was acting strange.

The four girls' lives are turned upside down when they realize that they have something in common, more than just their schools' rivalry and their own problems. There's a shocking secret that's at play...do they have it in the cards to figure it out?

The Death of Death

Death guides usually have rather normal names like John, Mary, Harry, and Jessica. And even ones not quite so normal, like Bartholomew or Ambrosia. They also have the most interesting tales behind their deaths. But one particular death guide has a few problems: she cannot remember her name or the details of her demise, and thus has no story of her own. One fateful night, she meets a young girl that may change her death forever.

Inspired by and in the style of Children's tales of old, The Death of Death is a tragic, yet sweet little tale about loss and acceptance.

Suitable for ages 12 and up.
