The Rat Chronicles: Metacognition by G.W Rennie

In an alternate universe, an extraterrestrial civilization, known as the Xzebuliens, has developed the ability to create a rift in our universe that emerges on the dark side of the moon. Through this rift, they have been sending asteroids containing a virus to Earth, with the intention of wiping out the human race. However, the virus has limitations, such as its range and speed of transmission, making it toxic to humans but not to most other forms of life on the planet. Additionally, the virus causes mutations in rats, which renders it harmless to humans through them. The rats then become our allies, with their telepathic abilities and superior senses, and help thwart the alien invasion. Through an otherworldly alien Al database, the rats discover an ancient secret that they reveal to us through their enhanced mental abilities. This shocking revelation will change the way humans perceive rats and our world forever. As a result, the human race becomes subservient to the rats, as both species depend on each other for survival.

Gerald Rennie was born on February 26, 1963, in Matsqui, B.C., to a middle-class family. He was the third son, and he kept pet rats for most of his life. When he heard of other rat fanciers from around the world, he published his first book, “The Rat Worshipper: In The Nick of Time.” A beloved pet rat saved the lives of him and his entire family through a bizarre series of synchronicities. He later wrote the Rat Chronicles, in which the rats of Earth save humanity from certain extinction.

Getting Back Up: A Message of Hope by Tammy Woodham

God is truly omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. He is everywhere, all-powerful, and can accomplish anything without fail. In “The Power of God,” I share a personal account of my own struggles with drug abuse, spousal abuse, and self-doubt – and how my faith in God helped me overcome them. This book is a testament to the transformative power of God’s love and the promise of deliverance. Through the sacrifice of his son, Jesus Christ, I found salvation and the peace of mind that comes with knowing I am protected by the best insurance in the universe. Romans 10:9 reminds us that confessing and believing in Jesus Christ is the key to salvation. When I hit rock bottom, I was skeptical, but God’s presence in my life was undeniable. He saw past my faults and answered my prayers, exceeding my wildest expectations. Ephesians 3:20 tells us that God is capable of more than we can ask or imagine – all we have to do is believe. As an author of nonfiction, fiction, and poetry, I hope that my story inspires others to find hope and guidance through God’s unwavering love.

Tammy Woodham is an author of nonfiction and fiction, but most of all poetry.


You will be on the edge of your seat until the very end if you choose to read any of these four exciting novels. These books provide everything from psychological mind-benders to high-stakes adventures, and they are certain to keep you up all night and leave you wanting more.
