In Amish Circle Letters, follow the journey of a series of letters that pass through the Fisher family. As Amish do not use computers or cell phones to communicate, Amish women will often write circle letters, letters that they send to a list of addresses of people that they would like to include in the correspondence. Since they do not have access to photocopiers, the first person on the list will receive the letter, read it, and respond. That person sends both the first letter and their response to the second name on the list. This continues until the entire package of letters goes full-circle, returning to the original sender. In Volume 5 of the 10 part series, Lizzie’s Letter, the family gathers for worship at Leah’s home. Mary Ruth senses a break in Menno Yoder’s hostility and hopes this signals the beginning of his healing so that she can return home while Melvin and little Katie find that they have a common interest: ponies. Steve finds a way to visit with Mimi Hostetler and finds himself embarrassed that he keeps having to borrow his daed’s buggy to court her.

After breaking the Seventh Ward and unleashing the dark god Arkonen upon the Overworld, Bane, Demon Lord, is close to death. The Black Lord has betrayed him and left him to die from exhaustion and the ill effects of the dark power. Only the young healer’s fragile and misunderstood hold on his heart makes him cling to life, and Mirra begs him to save the Overworld, as only he can, but will he?Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

A captive goddess, a doomed domain and a young dark god who must save the light… Even with his spirit father, Kayos, to guide him, Bane struggles to deny the dark power’s corrupting influence. A tar’merin may stray from the light if his heart is weak, and the darkness will try to seduce him. In order to retain his sanity and fight for the light, Bane must become the Lord of Shadows…Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

The trackless and dangerous God Realm is shaped by the will of the gods who roam it, and the creatures of darkness that inhabit it prey upon the doomed mortals who wander its shifting wastes… Even a mortal dark god may not survive its traps and treachery, and a Grey God is a beacon that draws the darkness. Kayos’ shield sphere may not protect him from a dark god with a Key…Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

A Grey God’s impregnable shield sphere is his last defence, but a domain Key might unravel it and force him to flee into the unknown, for to Move in the God Realm is to be lost… Bound and powerless, the Demon Lord is doomed unless a light god comes to his aid, but he can no longer wield the shadows. Kayos waits for his dark son to free him, and his time is running out…Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

The Demon Lord must face three dark gods, possibly four, in order to keep the child goddess Kayos has awakened safe. At the same time, he is beset by the people whose domain Sherinias now rules, who do not believe in gods. They know all about evil, and have been trying to fight it for centuries, with dire consequences. Their attempts hamper Bane, however, and place him in additional danger. While most try to kill or capture him, others are persuaded that Bane is not a destroyer and take his side. Sherinias’ world is still in a great deal of trouble, falling into darkness as its people destroy it with their careless plunder, and not even Kayos can save it. The city the people have built in the God Realm just outside the realm gate makes it difficult to close the portal, which they strive to keep open, but if it is not closed all manner of gods may enter and put this dark domain and its child goddess in even greater peril….Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

In order to escape Tassin’s enemies, Sabre takes her into the Death Zone, the most perilous place on the planet, a terrifying realm where natural laws hold no sway and life hangs by a thread. Only the deadly abilities he hates so much will keep her safe, forcing him to use them whilst he strives to learn what it is to be human, confused by his forbidden feelings for the high-spirited Queen.Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

Sabre’s time is running out, and he decides to complete the cyber’s mission and destroy the Death Zone. Therefore, he must travel to its source: the Core, something so powerful that it bends space and time and draws slices of other worlds into its sphere of influence. He doubts that he will survive the encounter, but death will be better than being returned to the horror of cyber control…Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

For three long years, Tassin has tried to find a way to travel to the stars and free Sabre. Her hunt for the sword the Core lives in has proven futile, until one day a serving boy finds a key, and she discovers where Sabre hid the sword. She persuades the malevolent weapon to take her to Sabre, and arrives on the planet Ferrinon Four. Lost in a modern city, Tassin goes to a private detective who, since she has no money, advises her to try a friendly young hacker. Kole agrees to help her look for a cyber she only knows is somewhere on the planet. Without Sabre’s serial number, all she can do is seek him amongst the many others on this world. If she does locate Sabre, she has no money with which to buy him, and cybers cannot be stolen. Even Kole, who is the best hacker on the planet, knows it is impossible to hack a control unit. The micro-supercomputer is simply too complex, and has multiple security checks and firewalls, not to mention a lethal pair of fists. Tassin’s only source of potential wealth is the sword, an oddity that a rich mogul might pay handsomely for. Kole advertises the weapon on the Net, and agrees to loan her the money to buy Sabre if she finds him, although to Tassin, the idea of buying him is abhorrent. First they have to find him, and then she has to find a way to free him from cyber control again. Manutim would have taken him back to Myon Two for repairs, and there’s a chance she may never be able to free him again, but at least she can ensure he does not suffer anymore. What kinds of torture has Cybercorp subjected Sabre to, and, if she finds him and frees him, will he still be the man she loves?Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

Tassin, Sabre and Kole head for Omega Five with Tarl, an ex-cyber technician turned smuggler they met on the wonder world, Charon Six. Sabre fascinates Tarl, who is also on the run from Myon Two, under a sentence of death. He has restored Sabre’s memories, but, after everything he went through on Myon Two, the cyber is no longer the man Tassin fell in love with on Omega Five. She hopes he will rediscover the feelings he had for her then, and she will do anything to make that happen. When Myon Two enforcer ships find them in a photon corridor, they are unable to escape in Tarl’s old freighter, Blue Sun. Sabre sends a universal distress message, hoping that this will at least protect Tassin and Kole from Cybercorp. Unfortunately, it is answered by an Overlord. The seven Overlords are universal judges and executioners who keep the peace on a planetary scale, and rarely interfere in minor infractions, but interplanetary law dictates that a universal distress message cannot be ignored, and the Overlords must abide by it, too. Overlords travel instantaneously between solar systems on giant city-ships capable of destroying planets, and the one who answers Sabre’s call is the Spider Lord, one of the most feared of all the Overlords. Upon learning the cause of the altercation, the Spider Lord orders Sabre to sacrifice himself or his companions will die, and the cyber is forced to step out of an airlock to save them…Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

After surviving an explosion aboard their ship and escaping a spacial anomaly, Sabre, Tassin and Tarl are dropped off aboard a warship belonging to Trykons, the most warlike human race in the galaxy. Even the Overlords cannot put an end to the Trykons’ endless battles for supremacy, and have placed the solar system under restriction. As long as the Trykons only fight each other, they are left alone, isolated from the rest of humanity. Everything about Trykon society is decided by combat, and they do not tolerate weaklings, even amongst their own race. Non-combatants are considered inferior, used as servants, and not allowed to procreate. Selective breeding has resulted in a race of near giants whose sole purpose in life is to fight for their clan to win control of the planet. When Sabre arrives, unannounced, aboard the warship, his only goal is to take control of it so he can use it to reach Omega Five. Naturally, command of a Trykon warship is decided, like everything else, by combat prowess. To the Trykons, Sabre’s stature is unimpressive, and Tassin, who dislikes being a non-combatant, wants nothing more than to put the arrogant, and very large, Trykon warrior women in their place. While the Trykons are the ultimate warrior breed, however, they have never encountered a cyber before…Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

After another run in with enforcers, Sabre, Tassin and Tarl reach Omega Five, only to find that disaster has befallen Arlin. Four years have passed on the planet during the few months Tassin has been away, and during that time she has been declared dead and her cousin, Dellon, has inherited the crown. Princess Dena has been ousted and supposedly taken in by a countess, and Torrian is Dellon’s friend and ally. Knowing that Dellon will denounce her as a pretender if she reveals her presence and tries to reclaim her throne, Tassin and Sabre find Dena and go to King Sharmian, Grisson’s illegitimate son and now ruler of Mandor, smallest of the five kingdoms. Sharmian, however, is Torrian’s puppet, and does not have an army strong enough to fight for his independence, never mind help Tassin regain her throne. Nevertheless, they hope his attachment to Dena will persuade him to join the fight to free Arlin and Prane from Torrian’s influence. Even with a small army to serve as a distraction and draw off Torrian’s troops, it is up to Sabre, in the end, to find a way into Tassin’s castle and confront Dellon on her behalf. Once again, she will need him to be her champion and pit his skills against medieval knights in a bid to win back Arlin so she can be queen again and they can finally have the peaceful life they have striven so hard to attain.Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

Sabre has become a bone of contention between three Overlords, and Myon Two. The Spider Lord, first to encounter him, has found him innocent, but Overlord Ramadaus has declared Sabre to be an abomination, and aids Myon Two in their endeavours to capture the rogue cyber. Sabre, however, has made a particular friend of one Overlord, whose life he saved from a Corsair, a particularly dangerous alien species. Overlord Fairen has claimed Sabre as his friend, and granted him protection and an emergency beacon with which to summon him. He has also visited Myon Two and forbidden Cybercorp to hunt Sabre, but enforcer factions, with the backing of Ramadaus, continue to try to capture the cyber. Myon Two wants to examine him, discover how he got free of the control unit and ensure that he is returned to cyber control, or destroyed. Therefore, when Sabre wakes to find himself a prisoner of Myon Two, he knows Ramadaus had a hand in his capture, especially since the emergency beacon is gone. On Omega Five, Tassin tries to find a way off world, with Tarl’s help, and two cyber technicians try to free Sabre on Myon Two. Sabre’s only salvation, however, could lie with a fourteen-year-old boy who is the most feared Overlord of all. He is known as the Wild Child and the Red Death, and commands the most powerful city-ship every built. He is the Scorpion Lord.Sci Fi & Fantasy

 

 

In her desperation to find Sabre and rescue him from Myon Two, Tassin boarded a smuggler ship that answered Tarl’s call for help, and she and Tarl have been abducted. Her royal status means nothing to their kidnappers, but her airs and graces pay off on the auction block, and she and Tarl are purchased by a self-styled emperor. Tarl’s skills as a cyber technician prove valuable to Emperor Endrovar, who owns cybers, but the emperor has no use for Tassin, and sells her. The Queen’s new owner is a high king, ruler of fifteen solar systems, whose family has strange ties to Myon Two. She discovers an astounding revelation regarding Sabre’s origins, but is unable to persuade Tarvin to let her go. When Sabre learns of Tassin’s abduction, despair overwhelms him, for she has vanished into the endless reaches of space, untraceable… lost. He is certain he will never find her again, and, although Fairen helps him to set out on his quest to seek her, he knows, deep in his heart, that it is hopeless. His machine-trained mind has calculated the odds and returned a decimal so small he does not want to count the zeroes in front of it. Sabre has no hope, and he cannot cope with the host of human emotions her disappearance dumps into his mind – useless, illogical feelings that only bring him pain. Fate has dealt him a final, crushing blow, and he has lost the girl he loves just when he has finally become almost human…Sci Fi & Fantasy

The Shrike has made Rayne his wife in order to save her from the empty existence her empathy has condemned her to, shunned by all who fear her power. He has revealed his face to her and told her some of his secrets, and there are those who would do anything to discover what she knows. Various rival empires, factions and slavers have offered bounty totalling many millions for his death, and the image she carries in her mind means she is in grave danger should she ever stray from his protection. Yet still he remains mostly a mystery, a gentle, but aloof companion, and she longs for more. If his enemies capture or kill the Shrike, however, millions of freed slaves will die or be returned to slavery. He is his people’s saviour and protector, and hundreds of thousands will lay down their lives to protect him and sacrifice themselves to avenge him. He is their emperor, who saved them from slavery, and they love him. An ex-slave himself, the Shrike carries the mental and physical scars of his horrific former life. He started the Slave Empire with a single spaceship and it has grown into the third largest in the galaxy. Even all his warships will not be able to protect him if his rivals discover the truth about him, however, and only one person can betray him. If the Shrike dies, the Slave Empire will go to war with whoever kills him, and the retribution it metes out before it falls will be terrible, bloody, and final…Sci Fi & Fantasy

A rival bent on revenge… Kate Andretti is married to the Mob–but doesn’t know it. When her husband uproots them to Italy, Kate leaves everything she knows behind. Alone in a foreign land, she finds herself locked in a battle for her life against a husband and a family who will “silence” her if she will not do as they wish. When her husband tries to kill her, she accepts the protection offered by a wealthy businessman with Mafia ties. He’s not a mobster, he claims. Or is he? Enrico Lucchesi never wanted to be a Mafia don, and now he’s caught in the middle of a blood feud with the Andretti family. His decision to help Kate brings the feud between the families to a boil. When Enrico is betrayed by someone in his own family, the two of them must sort out enemies from friends–and rely on each other or die alone. The only problem?

Attacks from without and within push them both to the breaking point, and soon Enrico is forced to choose between protecting the only world he knows and saving the woman he loves. Excerpt: Enrico raised a hand in greeting to Kate, and she returned his wave and started descending the steps. She headed straight for him, her auburn hair gleaming in the sun, a few strands of it blowing across her pale cheek and into her green eyes. With a delicate hand, she brushed the hair out of her face. Enrico’s fingers twitched with the desire to touch her cheek like that, to feel the slide of her silky hair. A small, almost secretive smile crossed her features, and he swallowed hard. Dio mio. He felt that smile down to his toes. She stopped a couple feet from him. “Signor Lucchesi, it’s good to see you, as always.” He bowed his head slightly. “And you, Signora Andretti.” He paused, a grin spreading across his face. “Since when did we get so formal, Kate?” She half-turned and motioned to the doorway behind her. And that was when he noticed it–a bruise on her right cheek. Merda! Had someone hit her? Tearing his eyes off the mark, he followed her gesture. A tall, sandy-haired man, well-muscled and handsome, leaned in the doorway, his arms crossed. “My husband, Vincenzo, is here.” Enrico’s smile receded. He looked back to Kate. “I’d like to meet him.” And if he did this to her, he’s going to pay. ******** Sensuality level: Hot (RT Book Reviews scale) WARNING: This book contains graphic language, sexual situations, and violence.Romance
