Unseen Things

Book 13

Free sample

Since Alarwyn had been an orphan and Stephanie never had any real family to speak of, from the moment they met they latched on to each other, developing a sisterly bond that made them almost inseparable.

In an effort to get out there and prove themselves to the others, they head off to the reptilian dimension to do a little exploring, but things take a serious turn when they discover a Zethichtalarin plot to destroy the Nathalis homeworld.  Together they have to figure out a way to stop the plot, recover the zero point bombs and kill the Zeths who were planning the attack before it's too late.

Also, when Derek and Jarrod decide to make an "old school" run to the prehistoric dimension along with Tina, Sarah and Patricia just to add a little excitement to their lives, what starts out as a boring trip soon turns far more exciting and potentially deadly than they'd bargained for.

Companions is book 13 of the Unseen Things series.

About the author

Duane L. Martin began his writing career when he started a classic film review website back in 2002 called B-Movie Central.  Two years later, he would go on to create another website called Rogue Cinema, which is a monthly online magazine staffed by a wonderful team of volunteer writers that's devoted to film reviews, articles and interviews with film makers and other industry professionals.

An avid reader, he's been inspired by a wide variety of authors, including Robert Asprin, Jody Lynn Nye, R.A. Salvatore, Ed Greenwood and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  More recently, he's buried himself in the various series of writers like Jennifer L. Armentrout, H.P. Mallory and Amanda Hocking.

His aunt, a published author as well, once gave him a book on creative writing that changed his life forever.  It was a collection of pieces by various authors, but one piece in particular has always stuck with him.  It talked about how to create characters that feel like real people by giving them real backgrounds, likes, dislikes and personalities.  It inspired him to create characters that feel genuine and real, like people you may know, or people you'd like to know, and helped him take his writing to the next level.

Aside from his writing, Duane is also a musician.  He took his first bass guitar lesson in 1987 and has been playing bass ever since.  He also plays some guitar and a little keyboard.  As he's always been a great lover of music, he often has it playing quietly in the background while he writes.

Born and raised in Northern California, he would later move to Idaho, where he currently lives with his wife Sharon and their dog Buddy.

After her temper led her to walk out on yet another convenience store job, Cindy needed to find herself a new job fast, otherwise she'd end up broke and living on the streets.  After discussing the situation with her apartment manager, he informs her that he has a brother who's been looking to hire an assistant.  The only problem is that he's a private investigator, which was a career field that she had no experience in whatsoever.  Still, she was pretty much ready to jump at any opportunity.  It was a chance at not only quick employment, but possibly a whole new career that would get her out of the convenience store business once and for all.

As it turns out, being a private detective isn't as glamorous as they make it look on television.  It comes with certain indignities and moral issues that she'd never really considered before.  Not only that, but her new boss, Frank, seems to delight in going out of his way to piss her off.  The only thing he seems to enjoy more than pissing her off, is complaining about how horrible her coffee is.  Still, for some reason that she can't seem to figure out, he also goes out of his way to help her succeed in any way he possibly can.

Frank can be terribly passive aggressive, but he's nothing compared to his sister Kayla.  She's like a nightmare on wheels, with no empathy, and no filter whatsoever.  You never know what's going to come out of her mouth next, but it's a safe bet that it'll be something infuriating.  When your temper is already the stuff of legends, having to deal with someone like her, without the encounter ending in a murder rap, requires a tremendous amount of willpower.

The one thing that Cindy has going for her is that she's got a super high aptitude for the job.  All she needs to do in order to succeed is to learn how to control that legendary temper of hers, work hard, and most importantly, learn how to make a decent cup of coffee.  The first two are relatively simple.  The third...not so much.
