Bundled into a super secret underground bunker Lilly must use her awesome genius skills – and her not so awesome social skills to survive long enough to create magnificently deadly creatures and escape almost certain death…
Miss Lionheart and the LOD, by A.J. Ponder, begins with an offer: “get into the car or I’ll blow your brains out.” It was made with such eloquence and conviction Lilly couldn’t exactly refuse…
… And you can’t either. Yes, Miss Lionheart and the Laboratory of Death is
coming, so hijack yourself into mad scientists’ territory, duck the gelignite, avoid the Acme fuses. Do whatever you need to, just make sure you don’t miss out — it’s more than your life is worth.You can buy the whole book – or download it in parts
Part 1: Once Bitten. Lilly Lionheart is kidnapped by a master villain who wants her to create dangerous genetically designed animals. But Lilly has ideas of her own.
Part 2: Twice Poisoned. Christmas is coming, and Mr Big as big plans, not only for his dreadbeasts, but also for Miss Lionheart’s team’s next project. But he’s unhappy with their progress, and suspects Miss Lionheart is a spy. Can Lilly allay his fears, and create the dreadbeasts he is demanding? Or will she die trying to escape?
Part 3: Thrice Shy. Miss Lionheart’s squirrel-snake hybrid, Quetzee is thrown into the ring with three lions and the dreadbeasts. Quetzee will almost certainly die, and the thought of losing him is tearing her apart. Even the thought of losing dreadbeasts is terrible. Meanwhile Lilly’s crew is in extreme danger as four dreadbeasts have escaped. They threaten not only her safety, but that of the whole bunker.
