Summary

"'How have any folk here managed to survive so long? These are killing conditions!'" 
He has taken his first step to being accepted by the other prisoners. But what is the secret of the missing prisoners? 
As Tyrrell is granted a tour of Compassion Life Prison, he realizes that the truth about his new home is both more horrific and more wonderful than he could possibly have imagined. An intricate network of protection, service, and love is enabling the prisoners to battle against harsh living conditions. As Tyrrell begins to penetrate the mystery of a massive affliction of pain and death within the prison, the question arises: Who is to blame for the suffering? And how can they be stopped? 
This suspenseful novel can be read on its own or as the second story in the "Hell's Messenger" volume of Life Prison. Friendship, desire between men, and the costs of corruption and integrity are examined in this multicultural speculative fiction series, which is inspired by prison life at the end of the nineteenth century.

    AURORA RENEGADES: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION: Over 1,200 Pages of Sci-Fi Adventure 
    **2nd trilogy in the Aurora Rhapsody series (Sidespace, Dissonance, Abysm + bonus content)** 
    It is a time of accelerating technological change & shifting allegiances as the old rules fall away & the old balance of power is upended. A new world rises--one of unshackled AIs, indestructible starships, ethereal quantum spaces & potent new weapons--& the race is on to determine who will control its future. 
    When faced with its greatest challenge, will humanity rise to triumph or fall to ruin? 
    * 
    SIDESPACE 
    Humanity is saved. But its troubles are just beginning. 
    To achieve their extraordinary triumph over the Metigen armada, humanity put aside its myriad of conflicts & united against a common foe intent on annihilating civilization. In victory, unparalleled peace & prosperity are theirs for the taking--if they can keep hold of them. 
     
    When the secrets behind the Metigens' defeat escape the shadows, the people who won the war find their lives in danger. Facing anti-synthetic terrorists who want them dead, power-hungry politicians who want them chained, & a rapidly dwindling number of people they can trust, the Prevos--individuals & AIs sharing a single body--must take their fate into their own hands. 
     
    51 Portals. 51 Universes. 
    Intent on learning the purpose behind the Metigens' elaborate multiverse network, Alex Solovy, Caleb Marano & Valkyrie embark on a gripping journey through the network's portals, each one leading to a universe not their own. In a mosaic of spaces inhabited by fantastical aliens & worlds both beautiful & deadly, they will be forced to question everything they thought they knew, including the nature of life itself. 
    * 
    DISSONANCE 
    Know this: you need not be afraid. They own the fear. They fear us because they believe we are powerful, and they are correct to do so. 
    The technology behind Project Noetica is on the loose. Prevos are spreading across the galaxy. Now two opposing but inexorably related forces threaten to plunge the galaxy into chaos. 
     
    As society splinters from within & the Earth Alliance falls to reactionaries, a formidable new player emerges on the galactic stage, one not afraid to do whatever it takes to protect all sentient life--human, Artificial and Prevo. 
     
    The Metigen surged forward to engulf her in light. I see you, Alexis Solovy. 
    Killers & saviors. Deceivers & protectors. Destroyers & creators. Could the Metigens truly be all these things? The search for answers leads Alex and Caleb to the most shocking revelation of all--the true face of the enemy. 
    * 
    ABYSM 
    In the quest to be the masters of their own fate, will humanity rise to become liberators or follow the path of their ancestors into darkness? 
    Alex Solovy & Caleb Marano risked everything to learn the hidden purpose behind the Metigens' multiverse portal network, but nothing prepared them for the answer. Humans are a genetic recreation of the Anaden, the dictators & overlords of the master universe. Aurora is a recreation of their origins created by the Metigens in a desperate gambit to understand their enemy & find a way to defeat them. 
     
    Aurora's future hangs in the balance as the Earth Alliance goes to war with itself over the right of synthetics and Prevos--human/AI hybrids--to exist. The next evolution of the human species will not be so easily defeated, but they must move quickly to win the day, because the true enemy is closing in faster than anyone realizes.

    A Brush with the Moon
    
     
    One incident can change your life. For Sophie, it was the day the fox attacked her.
    
     
    All Sophie ever wanted was a way out. Only a few weeks ago, she was a quiet art student with an overbearing mother and no higher dream than starting university and reuniting with her BFF, but destiny intervenes in the form of a fox bite.
    
     
    If being attacked by a rabid animal isn’t freaky enough, her new town has secrets. People are dying, and Sophie feels she is being watched. Then there’s the arrogant and annoyingly sexy Sebastian with his plummy accent and come-to-bed eyes creeping her out. She should stay well away, but then he does live in the spooky manor house, and curiosity is her middle name.
    
    
    
     
    Rise of the Hellion
    
     
    Something’s stalking Sophie—and it’s not just her boyfriend’s cute cousin!
    
     
    Pulled from a life of obscurity and chosen to take over from a dying goddess, Sophie is thrown into a world where the supernatural is normal and the humans are oblivious.
    
     
    Without meaning to, Sophie is making enemies, and as corpses mount, she fears for the people she cares for, but when someone she loves is accused of the killings, Sophie is convinced it can’t be true and sets out to prove their innocence.
    
    
    
     
    Fall from Grace
    
     
    Girl or goddess? Sophie has a decision to make.
    
     
    With the supernatural world in a state of unrest and her feelings for Connor intensifying, Sophie’s life is out of control, and she needs to get it back on track. But no matter how hard she tries, her desire to do what is right is faltering.
    
     
    Life is complicated.
    
     
    Is the chance of happiness really worth destroying her future?
    
     
    One thing is certain. To fulfil her destiny, she must leave behind everything she loves.
