Summary

An outback vacation in Western Australia in the scorching summer of 1955 quickly turns to tragedy when an American family crash their vehicle during a sudden storm. Ten year old Jake is the only survivor who has to endure the heat and isolation of the vast Kimberley region. In search of help, he stumbles across a tribe of remote Aborigines, the Elder of which leads Jake to a hidden sacred cavern. Buried deep within the cavern is an ancient unearthly relic which has become part of the local Dreamtime. 
Almost six decades later, a budding journalist named Bradley Chong is investigating the mysterious appearance of young boy found wandering in the Australian Outback. Mystified, Brad travels to the remote town of Halls Creek where events unfold that even Brad could not have imagined. Ignored by the local police and then hunted by federal agents, Brad is assisted by some newly-found friends who join forces to save the boy and fulfil his destiny.

    Humanity's thousand-year-old interstellar empire has been rotting from the inside for over a century, thanks to venal, corrupt, and power-hungry sovereigns from a dynasty many consider illegitimate.  The latest in that lineage, an increasingly psychotic empress, is pushing her realm toward catastrophic collapse as admirals and generals rebel against her rule.  That rebellion quickly drags the once mighty Imperial Fleet into a devastating fratricidal conflict between factions. 
    With civil war raging across human space, a Navy torn asunder can no longer protect frontier colonies, and barbarians long confined to the galactic badlands see an opportunity.  After generations of hard existence on worlds beyond the bounds of human civilization, they hold life cheap, especially that of others.  The barbarians will gladly steal everything they find and condemn defenseless star systems to technological and demographic collapse.  That is if they don't wipe them out entirely from sheer bloodlust or by selling survivors on alien slave markets. 
    One man, Captain Jonas Morane of the cruiser Vanquish, saw the empire's collapse coming years before the first admiral rebelled.  When he finds himself the senior surviving officer of a loyalist Navy unit almost entirely annihilated by rebels, Morane puts in motion a plan he developed long ago.  This plan was designed to not only save his ships and crews from certain death but keep humanity's accumulated knowledge from being obliterated by the long night of barbarism.  However, before his dream can become a reality, Morane must lead the remains of the 197th Imperial Battle Group through an intricate wormhole network and across a shattered empire to the sanctuary he selected, all the while dodging his former colleagues from both sides.  Along the way, he rescues an Imperial Marine Corps Pathfinder battalion and the survivors of a religious order known for its mysticism and enlists them in his cause.  But will Morane's sanctuary survive both the flames of rebellion and the depredations of invading marauders before his rag-tag fleet can reach it? 
    Imperial Sunset is the first installment in Eric Thomson's new saga Ashes of Empire.  It tells the story of a desperate attempt to stave off the darkness threatening to smother humanity's interstellar empire and send civilization back to the Stone Age. 
    Ashes of Empire is set in the Siobhan Dunmoore, Decker's War, and Quis Custodiet universe, but a thousand years after Zack Decker and Caelin Morrow's day, when they and Siobhan Dunmoore have become no more than minor footnotes in human history.

    2015 REVISED EDITION 
    Scarlet of Lysia is an honest pedlar, a young merchant traveling the wild, undefended roads to support his aging parents.

When Liall jokingly demands a carnal toll for the privilege, Scarlet refuses and an inventive battle of wills ensues, with disastrous results. 
    Scarlet is convinced that Liall is a worthless, immoral rogue, but when the hostile countryside explodes into violence and Liall unexpectedly fights to save the lives of Scarlet's family, Scarlet is forced to admit that the Wolf is not the worst ally he could have, but what price will proud Scarlet ultimately have to pay for Liall's friendship?

    Takeover—One Last Chance for Humanity 
    Since the announcement of Unbounded existence, the mortal world has quickly polarized. One faction wants all Unbounded—Renegade and Emporium—dead. Others worship them as gods who have come to save the world and bring it immortality. The tension between these groups is ready to explode. 
    Meanwhile, the Emporium has a new player, one who has upped the stakes in the battle for humanity. Many innocent mortals are sacrificed as the Emporium Triad grabs for control. 
    As Erin Radkey, Ritter Langton, and their Renegade allies struggle to stay one step ahead of the enemy, their increasing abilities are tested to the limit—as is their trust in each other. They have only one chance to change the game, to save humanity. A desperate plan that requires an ultimate price no one can bear to pay. 
    But everything is not always what it seems, especially in the world of the Unbounded. 
    “The Takeover amazingly pulls in threads from all the previous novels for a richly satisfying series conclusion. From Jace’s parentage and Stella’s baby, to Keene’s ability and Cort’s past, it all comes together. The Unbounded series is one that will always stand out in my mind.” Jody Babcock 
    Note from the author: 
    Thank you so much for going on this journey with me. The Takeover is the final installment in theUnbounded series from Erin's point-of-view. There are four more shorter spin-off stories that are strongly connected to the series from the viewpoint of the other main characters that tell what they were doing at various points in the Unbounded timeline. I also have other series in the works, and I hope to see you again in their pages. Enjoy!

    Helena thought her life was over when the stranger attacked … now, in order to survive, she must learn to adapt to a perilous new life, and leave everything she’s ever known behind. 
    The Angel Series Boxed Set contains Books 1-3 of the Angel Series plus a Bonus Short Story. 
    Angel's Kiss - Book 1 
    Not mortal, not vampire ... what is she? 
    Helena wants to die, but when a vampire tries to take her life she instinctively unleashes a mysterious, deadly power she never knew she had. 
    When Danizriel — an angel — arrives on the scene, he's puzzled to find Helena alive and the vampire dead. Intrigued, he shelters her and together they discover that she has become something neither of them expected. 
    Their growing attraction is soon threatened when news of Helena's unnatural abilities quickly spreads. She becomes the target of a deadly hunt by vampires and Danizriel is placed in an impossible situation when he is told he must kill her. 
    With overwhelming forces closing in, Helena and Danizriel face death from all directions. Who will live and who will die? 
    Angel's Curse - Book 2 
    What lengths would you go to for revenge? 
    Helena is furious beyond belief. She can't forgive the angels for what they did to her, and Danizriel -- one of their own kind -- who sought only to help her. Now she's out for revenge. 
    A coordinated blitz takes place on the solstice and thousands of vampires lay waste to the angelic host, in an attack orchestrated by Helena. In exchange for her help she receives three weapons from the time of the fall -- powerful enough to destroy archangels. 
    With three archangels down and one to go, Helena gambles with her soul to pull off the kind of bluff that even Satan might fall for. If she loses, the devil takes it all. 
    Angel's Messiah - Book 3 
    Would you risk everything, for salvation? 
    Helena -- part earth-bound angel, part vampire -- is pregnant, and it's playing havoc with her unique abilities. Her usual diet of vampire blood makes her physically ill, one minute she's visible the next she's not, and she's suffering from blackouts. 
    After yet another blackout, Helena finds herself back in Satan's clutches. This time there is no way for her to escape on her own, and a dangerous rescue mission ends with Helena going into labour prematurely. 
    Helena's child is born and all too soon must leave her to deliver a message to the mortal world. But the last time someone was sent with a message, it didn't end well ... 
    The Sands of Time - Bonus Short Story 
    Angels. Corruption. Death. 
    Father Time has been tending the hourglasses in the Halls of Time for what seems like eternity. When the sand in one of the hourglasses changes colour, and stops flowing, he doesn’t know what to do. This has never happened before. Is it an omen that the end is nigh, or something else entirely?

    Talon and his men have been training for seven years, but there is one competition they can’t train for. Stone Dreams is an invitation-only nightmare Nez will arrange with one goal in mind: death of all competitors. There’s a good chance the traitor will make his move because Stone Dreams takes place at night and ‘accidents’ happen in the dark. 
     
    Brenna now understands what it’s going to take to power the Chest of Souls. There’s only one choice she can make that will save Talon and bring about the fall of Sogo. She’d rather repeat all the traps the Ancients made by herself than tell Talon what will make the constellation Three Sisters fall and what his part in powering the Chest will be.
