There are two books in this series. They can be enjoyed by reading only one. The story is about an ancient Indian tribe living in the Groundwater Regions of Nevada. The Brower family meets the Indians and eventually is entrusted with a tribal secret. They survived in the underground and avoided government enternment camps.
They did that by shrinking their bodies.
Very low-carbohydrate (aka ketogenic) diets such as The Atkins Diet, Protein Power and The South Beach Diet have come and gone repeatedly over the years and there is currently great research and real-world interest in their effects. Unfortunately, altogether too much misinformation exists regarding them. Folks who are pro-low-carbohydrate diets tend to present them as the quick and easy solution to everything including obesity. Easy weight loss without hunger or calorie counting is promised but never seems to pan out as well as we might hope. At the other extreme are the anti-low-carbohydrate folks who tend to present low-carbohydrate diets as nothing short of a nutritional disaster being perpetrated by a bunch of con men. The truth, of course lies somewhere in the middle. While low-carbohydrate diets aren’t for everyone and have their pros and cons, the research is clear: they have major benefits under certain circumstances and can be as healthy (and sometimes healthier) than ‘standard’ carbohydrate based dieting. The Ketogenic Diet is the first and only book to objectively examine in-depth the scientific evidence regarding low-carbohydrate/ketogenic diets. It is meant to be a reference manual for low-carbohydrate diets; it is unlike any other book on low-carbohydrate diets that you have ever read or seen. Covering every topic in extreme detail, The Ketogenic Diet addresses everything from the basic physiology of how the body adapts to a low-carbohydrate intake, the details of human fuel utilization, the impact of low-carbohydrate diets on body composition and many, many more. Of course, none of the above is useful without practical application guidelines.
Details on how to optimize low-carbohydrate diets for different goals (such as fat loss, bodybuilding and endurance performance) are discussed along with three distinct types of low-carbohydrate diets.
In addition, the book includes a complete discussion of resistance, aerobic and anaerobic exercise physiology along with specific training programs for different goals and different levels of trainee At 325 pages and containing over 600 scientific references, this will be your complete reference for ketogenic diets. Please note: this book does not include information on the ketogenic diet for adolescent epilepsy (the topic is discussed briefly).

Monster hunter Evangeline Stone woke up on the wrong side of dead this morning—and now there’s hell to pay.
Barely recovered from her extended torture at the hands of mad scientist Walter Thackery, Evy can use a break. What she gets instead is a war, as the battered Triads that keep Dreg City safe find themselves under attack by half-Blood vampires who have somehow retained their reason, making them twice as lethal. Worse, the Halfies are joined by a breed of were-creature long believed extinct—back and more dangerous than ever. Meanwhile, Evy’s attempts at reconciliation with the man she loves take a hit after Wyatt is viciously assaulted—an attack traced to Thackery, who has not given up his quest to exterminate all vampires . . . even if he has to destroy Dreg City to do it. With Wyatt’s time running out, another threat emerges from the shadows and a staggering betrayal shatters the fragile alliance between the Triads, vampires, and shapeshifters, turning Evy’s world upside down forever.

Fifteen years ago they released a flu virus that killed over half the world’s population. When her adoptive father makes plans to release a new virus, Katie knows she has to stop them, but playing a double agent is never easy. Ethan Malloy failed his mission to kill Katie Murdock. Captured behind enemy lines and tortured, he is turned over to the dreaded cyborg program. But his memories aren’t erased. Katie Murdock sends him a coded message asking him to pretend he’s a mind drone and later shows up with her father proclaiming Ethan to be her new cyborg bodyguard. Alone with Katie once again he must choose to either complete his mission or trust the daughter of one of the most dangerous men in the world.
