    While digging through the ruins of a long dead civilization on the planet Mawcett, a team of Terran and Nordakian archeologists find an underground tunnel leading to a door in such extraordinary condition that it could have been fabricated as recently as that morning. They labor throughout the day, using every modern device available to them, but are unable to gain entry. 
     
    Then, in the early hours of the new day, seemingly in response to the screams of a frustrated, over-tired scientist, the door slides noiselessly open. Upon passing through the entranceway, the archeologists are stunned to find an elaborate complex in pristine condition. Summoning the courage to venture further, they enter a large circular chamber lined with strange electronic equipment, and immediately become engrossed in examining strange symbols etched into the floor near the center of the room. Suddenly, they're bathed in a strange light that paralyzes them where they stand. They watch in frozen terror as a clear, circular wall rises up around them. When the enclosed area begins to fill with a dense ocher gas smelling of persimmons, the dig site laborers, who had witnessed the activity from the periphery, run screaming for the entrance.

    Melati escaped New Jakarta space station when it fell into Allion's hands. Her family was left behind the enemy lines. 
    She signed up for active duty with the International Space Force in the hope they would liberate the station. Instead, they chose to maintain a crippling siege that has lasted for ten months. 
    A small ship escapes from the station with on board a single male occupant whose mind appears to have been wiped. 
    With her skills in artificial mindbases, Melati is part of the team that tries to get information out of him. 
    He could be a human Trojan horse sent by Allion and his calls for help nothing more than a trap to get ISF to send people to the station. Or he could be a genuine escapee from the station where the recycling processes have collapsed and ten thousand civilians have mere weeks until they die of asphyxiation. Either way, the time for watching and waiting is over. War is about to begin.

    When Abraham Lincoln wins reelection in the fall of 1864, it spells final doom for the Confederacy.  Driven by desperation and by the odds against them, Southern leaders reach a decision that could bring them sudden, stunning victory:  They will kidnap Lincoln from the very streets of Washington, whisk him to Richmond, and hold him for a kings ransom.  They will demand the release of all Confederate soldiers being held in Northern prison camps, in addition to $50 million in gold.  It will be a devastating blow to Northern morale, restore the wasted Southern armies, and topple the Union government.  
         
     The man assigned to carry out the operation is Philip Bartlett, the Souths best agent and a spy in Washington since early in the war.  Brilliant and ruthless, Bartlett is an aristocrat and a true believer in Southern independence.  He has never failed. The spy foresaw this decision by Richmond, but he does not believe in the mission.  To Bartlett, failure and success are both the same this time:  If successful, he fears what enraged Northern armies will do to the South.  If it fails, his remarkable operation in the enemys capital will be destroyed for nothing, and good men along with it.  But whether the operation fails or succeeds, the spy knows the South will suffer for it, and the war made even harder on his beloved homeland.  Still, he he is  a soldier and he will follow orders.  
         Bartletts accomplices will be some of the Souths best cavalrymen, disguised as Union troopers.  They will enter Washington the night of the operation, meet the spy, and abduct Lincoln as he takes his nightly stroll near the Executive Mansion.  They will dash out of the city, then down dark country roads protected by Southern partisans, and into the Rebel capital.
        The Confederate spy comes up against an unwitting opponent in Captain Peter Murphy, a young Union officer from a small town in Pennsylvania.  Murphy has been damaged by two years of relentless warfare; his sudden bursts of temper and violence have convinced his superiors to send him off to Washington for a few months of rest and recuperation.  Murphy is intelligent and sensitive, a teacher and educator before the war, but a man tormented by thoughts that he can never be the person he once was.  Murphy has seen combat at Antietam, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, the Shenandoah Valley, and a dozen other places.  He is wracked with guilt and confusion at having survived when so many others have fallen.  When he is ordered to Washington, he must leave his friends and comrades in the Army of the Potomac, a painful separation for a man already bearing many physical and mental wounds.   
         
     Although Philip Bartlett and Peter Murphy come from entirely different worlds, and they could not possibly be more different as human beings, their destinies will meet in Civil War Washington.

    The only thing worse than hiding from werewolves is living among them. 
    No wonder I kept some secrets, broke a few rules...and implicated my werewolf protector in the process. Oops. 
     
    To make matters worse, the stealer of my dead mother's magic has set his sights on my sister a second time. As the child's powers fade, so does her vitality until death looms on the horizon. 
     
    Can I learn to harness the power of the pack --- and squash my individuality --- before my sister's life is entirely sucked away from her? And, with my recent blunders causing upheaval in the werewolf world, will my former protector be willing to help us if I choose to ask? 
    This second book in Aimee Easterling's "nailbiting" and "explosive" urban fantasy series follows Wolf's Bane.
