Summary

Moir's promotion to junior priest should have been the best day of his life. He'd worked hard to earn that title... too hard, as it turns out. 
Serving four gods is a complicated road to follow when each god manifests in both Light and Dark aspects, in Good and in deepest Evil. The Creeds are intended to provide a set of guideposts, preventing junior priests from straying into heresies. Senior priests mentor junior priests for the same reason. And junior priests are never, ever sent out by themselves. 
Moir's initial joy at reaching junior rank chills sharply when he learns where he's going next: not to a posting in Bright Bay, as he'd expected, but to Salt City, the most sacred of all Church holdings. By himself. Far from guidance ... and far from his secretly, patiently waiting lover. 
His personal misery is soon swamped by a succession of bizarre and frightening events that force him to confront questions for which the Creeds have no answer. And if gods are involved, either they're of a completely alien sect ... or the Church has been lying all along. 
As the northern kingdom begins its spiral into that dark time later named "The Purge", Moir's choices set him on a uniquely perilous road, binding his future to the whim of creatures that were old before humanity was born. He must decide who he serves: Church, King, gods ... or something so tenebrous and dangerous that it could well overshadow every one of those entities.

    A few hours ago, Sherry Carne would have sworn that vampires didn’t exist. That’s before rogue immortals rampage through her store, leaving bloody chaos (literally) in their wake. The kicker comes when Sherry learns that one of the vamps on the bad guys’ trail may be her life mate. Her head says it’s impossible. The rest of her takes one look at Basileios Argeneau and has much more interesting ideas. 
    Whatever Basil expected in a life mate, funny, outspoken Sherry isn’t it. But mind-blowing chemistry and instinct don’t lie. They tell him something else, too—that Sherry’s connection to the immortal world goes deeper than she knows. And that she’s in the kind of danger only Basil can save her from—if she’ll just trust him, now and forever . . .

    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.
