The Old Ones, long trapped in their hell dimension, are risen once again in the far future. As cities crumble and society rips at the seams, the machinery and magicks guilds have failed to fight back the beasts.
Aeryn Talin entered the Coalition’s desperate trial a mortally injured Brigrade lieutenant. And emerged as Earth’s final defense. Imbued with blessed and unholy sigils alike and millennia’s worth of bio-tech and lore, Aeryn zealously – and eagerly – embraces her role as the war’s ultimate soldier. But when the decisive battle approaches, Aeryn finds herself haunted by the ghosts of her past and the uncertainty of her future.
A bewitched aardvark named Phil and dashing rogue warrior-cleric Eli are her only advisors and support in combat. As her powers grow and the battle’s tide begins to turn, the very power she wields threatens to overcome her and lead her to the gates of Hell itself. Conflicted between the demands of her duty and the calls of her conscience and heart, Aeryn’s will and sole friends stand between her and unholy madness.
One misstep and either she or world – or perhaps even both – will be sentenced to a living hell…
The Royal We:
The experimental krakken tank in the local aquarium bursts open during the monthly black light LARPing event (in which the aquarium raises extra funds by letting drunk twentysomethings pay money to run around with katanas after hours) and one brave LARPer must stop zombified sea life from wreaking havoc on the city.
Quiet Like a Ninja:
Kia and his friends thought an aquatic vacation in the underwater city of new Atlantis would be unforgettable; one last hurrah before graduation. And they were right. As marine life attacks outside of city, and something inside stalks the survivors, Kia must figure out exactly what is going on before Atlantis falls again.
And the Actual Plot is…
What happens when a single moment changes everything? For seventeen-year-old Cheney, life on earth exists only in history books. He and more than one thousand other people have known life only aboard the Plexus spacecraft: self-contained, systematic, and serene. But that was before the radiation wave.
Now Plexus has suddenly turned on them, becoming a terrifying and unrecognizable force. As the crew dwindles under attack, Cheney and his friends need to fight back before the ship that’s nurtured them for so long becomes responsible for their destruction.
