CAMP SUNSHINE:
For her ninth novel, Ruth Francisco brings us a WWII saga, based on the true story of Camp Gordon Johnston, an amphibious training camp on Florida's desolate Gulf coast. It is a tale of young men on the brink of war and a country on the brink of civil rights, a tale of soldiers and officers, daughters and mothers, death and redemption, and a man unyielding in his integrity, compassion, and struggle for justice.

Here, in this harsh but mystically beautiful land, twenty thousand young recruits test themselves to the limit in love and combat; politicos and tycoons offer aid with one eye to profit; women patrol the coast on horseback, looking for German subs; a postmaster's daughter, the only child on base, inspires thousands with her radio broadcasts; and a determined woman bravely holds together her family and the emotional soul of the camp.

But when Commanding Officer Major Occam Goodwin discovers a murdered black family deep in the forest, he must dance delicately around military politics, and a race war that threatens the entire war effort. Amid tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the soldiers and their country hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to find his destiny.

In doing so, she is seen framed by flickering torch light against the night sky by Renée, a Norman Lord’s son.

The day after the attack, Illiata and her father bury her mother and young brother and attempt to organize what is left of his workshop and their home. A little later as she sites on the front step creating a lace shawl, the wife of the Norman Lord sees her work and is quite impressed. So much so she purchases a completed shawl and discusses the possibility of Illiata joining her household as a seamstress.

Unfortunately, his mother sees the possibilities and disapproves leading to many unfortunate adventures for Illiata.

EYES THAT COULD KILL:
When being abducted once, is just not enough.

Langley Garret's Sunday morning starts very badly after waking with a hangover and a depressed feeling of worthlessness, along with a foreboding sensation in his gut. With his wife working away yet again, and the realisation that their marriage is probably very close to an end, and that his life is slowly ebbing away, he ponders his misfortune.

As he decides to start accepting that his life just couldn't get any worse, over his breakfast of coffee, cold pizza and orange juice, it does, when his miserable, quiet and lonely Sunday morning is interrupted by a woman with 'Eyes That Could Kill', and who has orders to abduct him.

Within hours of being questioned, captured, drugged and restrained, he finds himself dumped onto a small remote island, with no idea at all why he was taken bodily from his apartment on a tranquil Sunday morning, or why he is sitting alone on a rock, with only his suitcase and a pleasant view of the sunrise across the water for company.

As with all mysteries, it takes some time for Langley to learn a little about why he was abducted, but before he has time to start digesting that limited knowledge, his second abduction a few days later has him totally confused, and all at sea.

Remnant Of The Beast:
Beauty broke the spell by falling in love with the Beast, and they lived happily ever after. For Elise, her friends, her father, and every other citizen of Colmar, the story was a fairy tale created by the older generation to help little children sleep at night without fear.

But, forty years after Belle and over sixty years after the curse, the legend becomes a haunting reality once again. Joined on one side by Marshall, who is possessively in love with her, and joined on the other side by her invalid friend Patric, who Elise feels she must protect, Elise never thought she would also befriend the prince and take her own place in the fairy tale.

Unfortunately, the return of the Beast means more than finding beauty and love among ugliness and hate. The Beast has real-life consequences that result in misery, confusion, and suffering, and the return of the Beast means Elise must choose who and what she cares about most and must discover whether, like her predecessors, she can tame the Beast.

Her Dark Eyes:
A beautiful black panther is stalking Flora Lee. Yet this animal can't be real, can it? Infact, it a symptom of Flora's recently diagnosed eye disease – a condition that is potentially disasterous because Flora is one of Britain’s most celebrated artists.

Her consultant at the eye hospital, Max, is as fascinated by Flora's cat-shaped hallucinations as he is with Flora herself. He introduces the famous painter to his odd hobby - hunting for ABCs (Alien Big Cats) - by taking her to track a mystery beast with his friends from 'CatFlap', an eccentric group of 'cryptozoologists'. Although the expedition fails to find any trace of an ABC, the trip is brought to an abrupt and violent end by a savage attack on Max's wife by an unidentified assailant.

Returning to the zoo, where she is engaged as Artist in Residence, Flora discovers a half-wild teenage girl, Lou, hiding in her studio. Lou implores Flora to help her become a painter and the artist can't resist the challenge. There are many extraordinary things about Lou but the most astonishing is that she is stone blind; Lou paints by smell and by touch and produces stunningly visceral works.

At first, Flora is intrigued by Lou - empathising because of her own eyesight problems - but soon she is emotionally overwhelmed, and so obsessed that she decides to share her residency and hang Lou’s pictures alongside her own in the climactic exhibition to mark the end of her residency at the zoo. As the opening approaches, however, and Flora becomes more and more infatuated, Lou's motives seem increasingly menacing, and her relationship to Flora's 'imaginary' black panther becomes more mysterious and disturbing.

This dark, imaginative and sexy thriller, written with great insight into the art world by fine art photographer Alex Korvy, is an exploration of deceit, jealousy and betrayal that will haunt the reader long after the final page is turned.

The Dark Beneath Its Skin:
The Dark Beneath its Skin, is a teenage and above horror - fantasy novel, that is mainly plot driven and a one off stand alone story with no prequels or sequels. It has a couple of character revelations along the way that change the viewpoint and give it some twists. It does have a minimal amount of swearing and violence and has been rejected by ten publishers, but I hope one or both of those facts will not be enough to put you off reading it.

The main character Lucy, a fifteen year old is instantly obsessed by the strange red cherry tree at the bottom of her new garden. She feels there is something evil and malevolent about it and that it's trying to draw her to it so it can control her. Even more so when a strange, single, black cherry appearing at the top of the tree, and bad dreams add to her obsession, one that is beginning to take over her life, and those around her begin to notice the slow but strange changes in her behaviour.

These changes start to cause conflict between Lucy, her mother, her younger brother Jack, and even her new boyfriend Dean, when she insists it's the tree making her act out of character. But they think it ridiculous that a tree can be evil and it's just her way of trying to come to terms with the loss of her father the year before, and her rebelling against having to move to a new house and school.

However, one evening when John, the eqaully uncharacteristic vicar of the church that is just beyond the graveyard at the bottom of her garden, and Dean, are unexpectedly invited to tea, she takes the opportunity to once again convince everyone that the tree is evil. All it does though is convince all but one around the table that she needs professional help when her behaviour in front of them finally pushes her mother's patience to the limit.

Lucy is just about to be sent to her room when John suddenly stands and states that she may not be inventing these things after all, and that there is some truth in what she says about the cherry tree. But when Lucy and her mother return to the table and he explains to them that the tree is indeed a vengeful incarnation derived from the curse that an evil witch called Urxa put on those who burned her alive on the very spot where it now stands, more than four hundred years earlier, it not only heightens some around the tables scepticism, but also the young girls curiosity leading to a dire chain of events that will eventually affect them all.

And now someone has to stop Urxa. But who, and how? Perhaps that someone should look to the world that surrounds them for their answer, as there are many powerful forces that bind and shape our lives, but there is none more powerful than the one that will finally brings the witch down.
