On February 23, 1836, a large Mexican army led by dictator Santa Anna reached San Antonio and laid siege to about 175 Texas rebels holed up in the Alamo. The Texans refused to surrender for nearly two weeks until almost 2,000 Mexican troops unleashed a final assault. The defenders fought valiantly-for their lives and for a free and independent Texas-but in the end, they were all slaughtered. Their ultimate sacrifice inspired the rallying cry "Remember the Alamo!" and eventual triumph. Exhaustively researched, and drawing upon fresh primary sources in U.S. and Mexican archives, The Blood of Heros is the definitive account of this epic battle. Populated by larger-than-life characters -- including Davy Crockett, James Bowie, William Barret Travis -- this is a stirring story of audacity, valor, and redemption.

In the aftermath of Heroes of Old, John Larocque and his daughter, Jackie, struggle to recover from the damage caused by infamous serial killer Slade Lassiter and Lassiter's mysterious employer. Meanwhile, retired Navy SEAL Xavier Baddam starts his workday at a small, seemingly unimportant genetic research facility. When men claiming to be terrorists attack the lab, Xavier notices they seem to be looking for something. Drawing upon powers he doesn't understand, Xavier fights back-a decision that launches him into a world rooted in shadowy antiquity. Xavier has stumbled into a millennium-old secret: that the genetic descendants of celestial beings walk the earth and exhibit abilities far beyond the norm-and they're engaged in a tangled web of plot and counterplot. At stake is the ultimate prize of alchemy: the Philosopher's Stone. To understand the present, Xavier, John, and Jackie enter the Library, the repository of the Knights Templar's forbidden knowledge, and discover that the danger they face originated in the fourteenth century-when the game of kings played out across nations. Soon Xavier and his newfound associates must make an agonizing decision: accept their roles as the Library's guardians, or destroy the Templars' dangerous knowledge-and their own history.

“Joe Nassise has raised the bar for the whole genre.” —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of The Dragon Factory Combine the take-no-prisoners heroic grit of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds with the irreverent inventiveness of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, set it on the blood-and-gore-soaked European battlefields of World War One, and you get By the Blood of Heroes, a wildly imaginative alternate history zombie novel by acclaimed urban fantasy author Joseph Nassise. When the German high command employs a terrible new chemical weapon that reanimates the dead, Allied forces must take on the Kaiser’s zombie army in order to rescue a downed American flying ace in the first book of Nassise’s The Great Undead War saga. By the Blood of Heroes is a deliciously gruesome adventure that horror and alternate history lovers, steampunk aficionados, and fans of such zombie-centric offerings as TV’s The Walking Dead, popular literature’s World War Z, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and Zombie Haiku, and the Resident Evil video game and film series will eagerly devour.

The Blood of Olympus is the fifth book in the bestselling Heroes of Olympus series - set in the high-octane world of Percy Jackson. Though the Greek and Roman crew members of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen - all of them - and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood -the blood of Olympus - in order to wake. The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it might be able to stop a war between the two camps. The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over...
