Summary

Deep underground lies a prison filled with idealistic men who have committed themselves to putting the best interest of their prisoners first . . . through torture. Soaring high in an adjoining nation are two "reformed" prisons where life prisoners (and a few sympathetic guards) must band together for survival. 
Friendships between prisoners and guards, romance between two torturers, a young woman's appalled discovery that a dungeon-worker is courting her, desire and companionship in prison cells, a teenage guard's struggle to survive when his train is attacked by soldiers intent on slaughter . . . The two nations are broiling with events centered upon their prisons. 
This historical speculative fiction volume explores with drama and dry humor the complexities of prison life in the nineteenth century, while taking a peek at the surrounding societies in the nations' alternate universe. Characters who appear in one story reappear in other stories, seen from a different perspective and at a different age. 
This first volume of Dark Light collects seventeen stories from Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Dark Light, Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael's House, and The Eternal Dungeon) about disreputable men on the margins of society, and the men and women who care for them. Set between the 1880s and the 1910s, the cycle's novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times.

    USA Today Bestselling author, W.J. May, brings you to a new level of fantasy. Fans of Underworld and paranormal worlds will love this story! 
    "The wise learn many things from their enemies."     
    My name's Atlanta Skolar, and I’m a huntress. No, not the vampire-slaying type, or the ever-brooding Winchester brothers from Supernatural. I live a relatively normal life—during the day at least. I go to school, have friends, and try my best to survive Uncle James’ horrendous cooking. 
    However, the nights in the city of Calen are not always calm. There’s a thin veil between our world and the world of monsters, the good and the bad. I'm one of the few who stands between the two. With the help of my uncle, who’s taken me in since my parents’ deaths, I spend the nights making sure the balance is maintained and that each side keeps to their respective places. 
    At least, that was until something rattled the cages and everything hit the fan. There’s a new evil in town, an evil that's been here before, and it may be responsible for my parents’ deaths. An evil that isn’t satisfied with the balance. It'll do all it can to make sure darkness falls over Calen and the rest of the world once again. 
    Scary? That ain't the half of it. 
    It’s particularly interested in me.  
    Why? No idea.  
    But it’s my job as a huntress to make sure the evil is stopped, no matter what.

    When cyborg intelligence meets sensual robotics, circuit boards sizzle. 
    Einstein was probably the only cyborg in existence with no interest in the opposite sex, until he discovered B785. With her sensual nature and quirky sense of humor, she draws this cybernetic geek out of his scientific shell and teaches him the one thing he’s never understood – passion. 
    Tired of being a slave to the military, Bonnie went to sleep one day with the intention of never waking up, but she didn’t count on a cybernetic prince charming bringing her back to life. Coming to terms with her past isn’t easy, but harder still is the realization that even a bionic princess can fall in love. 
    However, all fairy tales have a villain, and despite the fact the military wrote them both off as a loss, they soon discover they’ll need to fight to have their happily ever after. 
    Each book in the Cyborgs: More Than Machines series can be read as stand alones, but if you'd like to enjoy the entire world the author created and meet the other characters then this is the proper orderC791F814B785AramusSethAdamAvion

    Being a cyborg was so much better when all his parts worked. Avion’s nanotechnology stopped functioning after some experimentation done on him by the military. They broke him and now, Avion is no better than a human, even more annoying, he’s dying. 
    But at least he completed his final mission. He saved, One. 
    Mysterious and alluring, Avion isn’t the only person who wonders what surprises this woman hides. The human military and their alien allies fear what she’s capable of and will stop at nothing to destroy her. However, the one thing they didn’t take into account is that the cyborgs always protect their own, and they aren’t afraid to use deadly force. 
    And no one could imagine the depths One will stoop to in order to protect the man she loves. 
    The universe is about to change. A war is brewing. The question is, who is the real enemy, and what will the cyborgs have to do in order to survive?

    No Vampire, or werewolf, is safe. 
     
    The future is not a safe place. 
    Fleeing the Archon Jeremiah’s rage and his purge of Brooklyn, the vampire Tay Maslov has sought aid from neighbouring Archon Bethania of Manhattan, decadent, nihilistic Bethania. The forever-young makes a deal with the young Feral; be her spy and all will be well. Perhaps she will even regain her place at an Archon’s unholy side. But with the Shadow War between the Shifters and the Elders heating up, Kaiden and Tay find themselves dragged into a twisting game of play and counter-play, as the different factions threaten to tear the city apart…

    Price of Blood 
    Book 3 of the Bit-Lit Series   
    The future is not a safe place. 
    Tay is finding it hard to adapt to her new life as Archon of a District, when suddenly, she received a bloody message that a delegation of senior Elders from all around the world will be arriving in New York to "deal" with the situation. Tabitha has just little time to get her house in order... 
    Kaiden, similarly, is finding it hard as the leader of the Shifters. He is called to a more simpler life, but cannot give up his duties. He has to try to bring peace to all the different Shifter Tribes if there is any chance at making peace between the different races. He is almost at the end of his tether, when a mysterious stranger confides in him that there is a way to unite the tribes--but it is very dangers and nearly impossible.
