Normalized (Book One) Genre Reader

Action! Characters! Exposition! Normalized has it all! When Captain Might started writing his journal he was the most powerful man on the planet. The all-conquering American paragon who knifed the sky like a buttered bullet and fired beams from his eyes so pinpoint deadly they could knock the prick off a Martian. That was before his arch-enemy, Professor D’eath, lured him into a trap, snuffed out his powers and transformed him from a superhero to a superzero. Now, grounded and struggling to re-define his place in the world as a “normal,” Captain Might documents his return journey to the realm of super-heroics, only this time minus the super. But will he settle the score with his nemesis, or will he learn the hard way that ordinary men are only capable of ordinary things?

Magic Eater (Dark Lakes Book 1): Free Sample Genre Reader

Who am I? I have to know, but something tells me the answer might be the death of me.

My name's Joseph Lake, or at least that’s what I’ve decided to call myself. By day I scrub toilets and fix broken light fittings, by night I look into weird stuff. Local hauntings, unexplained disappearances, satanic cabals dancing naked around ancient stone circles; the usual. The Uncanny calls to me like a beacon, and I follow its signal wherever it leads, hoping that one day it will shine a light on who I really am. Dark Lakes is a series from The Uncanny Kingdom Urban Fantasy Universe. Find out more by visiting
