Cracking Grace, by Stephen Stromp
Cracking Grace questions the very basic concepts of spirituality through the eyes of Audrey, a young girl in the midst of a tragedy—and through the eyes of Mary, a seemingly lifeless cemetery statue.

As her father slips into madness, Audrey is left to explore a secret world for answers to her loss. Aided by her faithful companion, a bluebird named Bluebell, Mary sets out on her own mission of discovery—despite chiding from the other residents of the cemetery: the cynical Jesus; two wisecracking gargoyles; and the eccentric ghost Mrs. Grant, a curmudgeonly old woman trapped among the graves.

Part fable, part dark fantasy, Cracking Grace is the story of loss and of newfound friendships for a young, wounded gir...

Children of a Broken Sky (The Redemption Chronicle), by Adam J Nicolai
The peasants called it "The Storm."

On a cold autumn morning seven years ago, the sky exploded with silent lightning. In its wake, everything changed.

Now the sun rises in the south, if it rises at all. Animals go mad. Crops ripen and die overnight. The Church - a body of miracle-workers who can heal the sick and walk through fire - warns that God's final judgment is at hand.

The world will soon end.

Now, stories tell of men that speak with beasts and peasants who work their own miracles. The Church decries these heretics, hunting them like animals and demanding the same of the faithful.

In a remote village, a small group of childhood friends are caugh...
