Fans of Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes will recall the public outcry when the famous detective fell off the waterfall – but what if the ending were different? What if, instead of laying low, Holmes was instead propelled through a portal. A portal that led to our time! Welcome to The Displaced Detective Series by Stephanie Osborn from Twilight Times Books!

From Amazon.com:

Displaced Detective is a science fiction mystery in which brilliant hyperspatial physicist, Dr. Skye Chadwick, discovers there are alternate realities, often populated by those we consider only literary characters. Her pet research, Project: Tesseract, hidden deep under Schriever AFB, finds Continuum 114, where Sherlock Holmes was to have died along with Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls. Knee-jerking, Skye rescues Holmes, who inadvertently flies through the wormhole to our universe, while his enemy plunges to his death. Unable to go back without causing devastating continuum collapse, Holmes must stay in our world and adapt.

Meanwhile, the Schriever AFB Dept of Security discovers a spy ring working to dig out the details of – and possibly sabotage – Project: Tesseract.

Can Chadwick help Holmes come up to speed in modern investigative techniques in time to stop the spies? Will Holmes be able to thrive in our modern world? Is Chadwick now Holmes’ new “Watson” – or more?

And what happens next?

You have heard the saying of ‘having a Guardian Angel’, well what if it were true? Furthermore, what if their job was not only to watch over you, but also to be vigilant in the celestial battle that continues just beyond our perception. Welcome to The Elysian Chronicles by M. B. Weston!

From Amazon.com:

When Major Davian, the most decorated soldier in the guardian angel
military, is sent to earth to guard seven-year-old Tommy O’Connor, he thinks
the assignment is beneath him. However, he soon discovers three alarming and critical facts.

*The fate of both Davian’s world and Earth is tied to Tommy’s life.
*The demonic forces his people have been fighting are intent on possessing
the boy.
*A prophecy most of Davian’s people have forgotten indicates that the
existence of the child will coincide with the rise of a traitor who will
take over Davian’s homeland.

Davian is torn between protecting Tommy at all costs and preventing the
conspiracy of his fellow soldiers to seize power.

The spiritual forces of legend are massing for war. The elite warriors of
the Guardian Angels must act quickly to save those they protect and prepare
for combat with their demonic enemies in the third great Battle for the City
of Ezzer.
