--- HARVENGER 2: The Empire of Death

Excerpt: The expanse of the foyer remained empty, though the air was now hazy with smoke and dust, and if he was going to do what he was thinking then he needed to act fast. So he dived into the washroom where the girl now lay in her own vomit. She screamed when she saw him and he grabbed her by a leg and unceremoniously dragged her out into the middle of the foyer where he discarded her. She wasn’t going anywhere as the injury he had inflicted on her pelvis made it too painful for her to move. He doubted she could even crawl. He left her babbling and ran to the elevator hub going around to one on the far side away from the view of the main foyer. Inside it he looked up to find a hatch and using the pinch bar he dislodged the cover, it fell swinging down on a hinge, just missing his head. Throwing up his satchel and other items he then jumped up, deftly catching the rim, and pulled himself through in time to hear the girl start screaming. He knew what that meant and as he reached down and pulled the cover back into place behind him her screams turned into a horrid wailing noise mixed with the maniacal snarling of the thing that had found her. ...

It is now over 300 years since Lauryl LeMont was spared from the witches’ pyre by Death himself and in that time she has created a corporate empire that spans the world. Harvenger Corporation is a multinational giant involved in everything from pharmaceuticals to crop research and even military spy drones. At its heart Lauryl sits in her tower hidden from the world she has helped create - a world that knows nothing of her existence. Protected, aided and loved by Death she seems untouchable. But, unknown to her, there are enemies who do know exactly who and what she is and their hatred of her has grown to the point where they will stop at nothing to destroy her. The apocalyptic figures of War, Pestilence and Famine, whose combined might is equal to that of Death, will use her to bring about what they have been waiting for - Armageddon. And Death must make a choice, to save the woman he loves, or save the world.
