The Dark World
Sixteen-year-old Kyo Young, heir to Xiang Matsori, has just received his First Class license; authorizing him as a legitimate defender of his father's position as City Lord. But as if fighting off daily challengers isn't enough on his plate already, he also has to choose a wife from the four potential brides his mother brought to live in their home for the next year; one who is crazy, one who dresses like a boy, one who's more than willing to kill her competition, and the last who openly hates him. Let the games begin.
Devvon de Avonis threw away his name the day his sister was murdered. Now, known only as Sin, he travels the world in search of his sister's lover and murderer, Ewan, a Fairy Doll who eats the magic gems harvested from the hearts of magical creatures. Or people. Knowing his nephew Terran is in Ewan's custody, Devvon must find the murderer and rescue his nephew before the Doll grows too magic starved to stave off his need for Terran's magical heart.
The World Over
Eight years ago, the zombies came and the world ended. Now, driven by the need to find her lost husband, River Kingston is drawn in by Mycroft, the invisible puppet master behind New Texas, who promises her answers in exchange for favors. But as the world continues to warp and change around her, River becomes more and more wrapped up in the secrets and lies of post-apocalyptic politics that will ultimately determine the difference between the life and deaths of the people she promised to protect. Because even with humanity dangling by a thread, people still like to have power. And they still like to abuse it.
Three years after the Great War, two monolithic arches erupted from the ocean on opposite sides of the world and nothing would ever be the same.
