Summary

From deep in the bowels of the Mines of Taas to the human kingdom of Hathaway, the Curse of the Undead is spreading across Green Valley like the vilest of plagues, wiping out all life in its path. Employing his army of shades to drain their life energy, Xeon the Undead Shadow Dragon has destroyed thousands of worlds throughout the millennia, and the world of Karth is next in his path of destruction. A chance meeting between Llythwain, autistic son of an elf Ranger and Killian, an undead shade has altered the familiar pattern of events, sowing the seeds of a monumental clash between the living and the dead, between good and evil, between the Allegiance and the Shard and Xeon's ferocious undead army. 
"The Undead Curse threatens Green Valley! The human necromancers are to blame!" With the utterance of those words by the Elven Lords, the Allegiance pact between humans, elves, dwarves, gnomes, and barbarians weakens, just as that of the Shard races grows in strength. By uniting the ogres, goblins, spiders, orcs, kobolds and hill giants under one banner, Xeon has awakened ancient hatred between the two mighty factions and the Shard is ready for war. A group of heroes, a human, gnome, and two dwarves led by an elf mage must gather the strength and courage to unlock the secret of the Undead Curse, but their time is running out. 
A fascinating tale of suspense and mystery filled with fantastic beings and stunning landscapes, Heroes of Karth: The Curse of the Undead is the first book in a multi-layered series that weaves themes of family, LGBTQ, autism, tolerance, and racism throughout a fantasy setting.

    Plundering innocent worlds; that is Doc Roberts job, and he is good at it. He was awarded a letter of Marque and a territory to hunt in exchange for his service to the Alliance and of course, a cut of his take. 
    The Alliance government can't openly operate in Commonwealth territory without starting another war, so they use privateers like Captain Roberts to destabilize governments and cause unease among the people in hopes that they will ask for Alliance protection. 
    Cheating and treachery cause Captain Roberts to reevaluate his loyalty. He can live with a little pilfering, but not outright stealing from him by trespassing on his planet. There is only one thing he can do. Teach the Alliance government that there is a price to pay for taking what is not theirs. 
    The Alliance goes too far when they send an assassin to kill Doc's wife. Now it is outright war, for Captain Roberts anyway. Now he is both a pirate and a rebel with people on both sides of the border whom either loves him or hates him. 
    After fighting a duel with one of the Alliance's promising new captains, torturing him, and leaving him for dead; he has made powerful enemies in the Alliance hegemony. The Alliance military leaders want to make Captain Roberts suffer like he made their captain suffer. 
    One man can only do so much, and Doc is getting tired. It is time to pass the reins of command to his son. But first, he must crush his son's dreams and teach him what it means to be an Alliance citizen. 
    WARNING! This is a stand-alone novel that contains grievous violence some of it extreme and graphically written, nudity, and mild cursing. After all, it is about a pirates life, and that is how they live. There are adult situations, but nothing graphic and no erotica. If any of this offends you, do not buy this book. But if you choose to open its cover and peer inside, I'm sure that you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it,

    The Guardians of the Time Stream is a steampunk-ish series set during the reconstruction of the United States in the decades following the Civil War. 
    Technology is on the rise, with locomotives and steam-powered industry, airships and other experiments in slightly anachronistic technology. A fascination with travel around the world and the exploration of other cultures, especially ancient cultures, is on the rise. 
    One thing to keep in mind is that this is an alternative-history Earth ... 
    The Guardians of the Time Stream, who call themselves the Originators, are determined to ensure the effects of certain events in history don't do any more harm to the planet than has already been done. Their secret: they are the descendants of travelers from our far distant future, who traveled into the distant past to prevent another group of time travelers from altering the world to suit their vision. And as Ess Fremont grows up and learns her heritage, her family's history and their secrets, she takes her place in the battle to protect the world. 
    SANCTUARY 
    Ess Fremont and the Blue Lotus Society know the Originators have been infiltrated by Revisionists, their ancestral enemies in the quest to rewrite or protect history. The treachery has reached even to their headquarters, Sanctuary, an underground complex near San Francisco. 
    Problem: The Society can't contact Sanctuary, or risk putting power into the enemy's hands. Yet Ess must go there to claim her heritage and learn how and why her grandparents vanished seven years ago. All her answers, and a vital weapon in the battle against the Revisionists could lie in her grandparents' vault -- and Ess herself is the key to open it. 
    Solution: Ask her family lawyers to "turn her in," and on the train ride cross-country, begin her education. 
    The journey launches revelations that threaten everything Ess knows as truth. As she uncovers schemes within lies within treachery, the fulfillment of her family's destiny rests heavy on her shoulders. 
    Who can she trust when her own grandparents blocked her memories, and the means to save or destroy them all are hidden in the vaults of her mind?
