Summary

DARKNESS EVERYWHERE...  
 
The Sixth World is a dangerous place, with deadly hazards lurking around every corner. Everywhere shadowrunners go, from the top of the world to the deepest, darkest Sprawl neighborhood, someone’s always looking to make their rep by taking you down.  
 
World of Shadows is the second anthology of original Shadowrun short stories, each one showcasing some of the most far-flung, treacherous locations around the world. From a scientific mission gone wrong in the snowy wilds of Russia to an AR nightclub in Morocco sheltering runners on the lam to a recovering runner drawn into a deadly web of intrigue in the darkest alleys of Hong Kong, these eighteen original short stories explore exotic settings far off the beaten path. Featuring stories by Michael A. Stackpole, Mel Odom, Jean Rabe, Aaron Rosenberg, Phaedra Weldon, Annie Bellet, Chris A. Jackson and many others, find out what happens when shadowrunners have to battle not only with ever-present threat of the corps and Mr. Johnson, but also the dangers of the very land they stand on.

    (Blood Vice Book Two) 
    Being a vampire isn't easy. Jenna Skye thought she could pull it off without giving up her old life, but the compromises are taking a toll—and not just on her. Jenna's sister Laura is eager to return to her glamorous life in Hollywood, and Mandy, Jenna's wolfy partner, is getting sick of playing her K9 sidekick to get around the police department's red tape.  
    Jenna's never been good with change, but with her human existence slipping further and further out of her reach, she has no choice but to accept FBI agent Roman Knight's offer to help the supernatural police force ruled by House Lilith hunt down a serial killer targeting new vampires in St. Louis…like her. Playing bait isn't exactly what Jenna had in mind, but it's a rookie lump she'll have to take if she wants a shot at joining Blood Vice—and if she wants to survive her new life as a vampire.

    Humanity’s Commonwealth won its war with the alien Shrehari Empire seven decades ago.  Starships engaged in commerce have replaced the battlecruisers, and much of that commerce flows through free ports established on what was once a disputed frontier.  Yet even long after the armistice, the relationship between humans and an unfathomable, easily offended species remains tense.  When someone assassinates a Shrehari trade emissary on Aquilonia Station, a human-owned free port dug into the crust of an airless moon, leaving a Commonwealth Navy officer as the sole suspect, everyone fears the worst. 
     
    An alien envoy killed by a member of the Armed Services is a case for the Commonwealth Constabulary, humanity’s interstellar police force.  And with galactic peace at stake, the investigation lands on the desk of Chief Superintendent Caelin Morrow. 
     
    As head of the Rim Sector’s internal affairs division, Morrow has one of the more challenging and unpleasant jobs in the Constabulary.  She investigates those in authority — members of the police, the military or government officials.  That makes her one of the most disliked if not outright hated cops in the Commonwealth.  However, Morrow and her officers are also known as the last of the incorruptibles.  They’re the ones with nothing left to lose, those who are highly skilled at uncovering and prosecuting malfeasance, no matter how powerful or wealthy their suspects might be.  It makes them the ideal investigators to satisfy an angry Shrehari government. 
     
    But soon after Morrow arrives on Aquilonia to establish the truth, she realizes there is something more ominous behind the Shrehari envoy’s assassination than one of the seven deadly sins that usually motivate violent crimes.  Was his murder an act of passion, or an act of politics?  And what will the results of her investigation mean for the future of humanity’s relations with its restive alien neighbor? 
    Introducing veteran investigator Chief Superintendent Caelin Morrow, The Warrior’s Knife is the first novel in the Quis Custodiet series, a police procedural and murder mystery spin-off from Decker’s War.  The events in this story occur in parallel to Howling Stars (Decker’s War Book 4).
