    Summary

    Guan Shan's father leaves his family for work in New York at the beginning of the First World War — and is never heard from again.

    In the autumn of 1928, thirteen years later, Guan Shan makes his own way to lower Manhattan's Little China to find him, with only the name of the man who signed his father's contract.

    When he finds himself falling into the world of America's Roaring Twenties and Tong Wars, and everyone he meets is not quite as they seem, finding his father turns out to be much more complicated than it first appeared.

    Summary

    The speak easy that Miss Rey Kenobi frequented was right in the middle of a territory war between the Russians (gangs like the First Order, Empire, and other branches of Mafia) and the Italians (The Republic, The Rebellion, and some homegrown terrorists like the Falcones, Krennics and Thrawns). That was enough to make any detective, even Ben Solo nervous. He almost wasn't let inside, and if any cop spent too long outside in this part of New York, they were going to die.

    Luckily, he had a man on the inside who got him in. And by man inside he meant his father. He wasn't proud of it and the two of them were estranged, but the old man owed him seven hundred bucks and this was one of the many favors he'd be cashing in to get his money back.
    At least the inside was nice, all dark wood and red velvet lining the seats. He saw her almost immediately. She was wearing a white dress that was revealing enough to be scandalous but not enough to be considered a harlot by the masses.
    Ben surveyed the room, most people were drunk and partying, but he saw at least twelve men in trench coats that were certainly not drunk that were eyeing him all around the room. They were probably armed.

    Summary

    Keith held the barrel of his gun to Lance's back, the cold metal seeping through the cotton of his off-white shirt and onto his tan skin, causing a shiver to run up his spine. They both had fear in their eyes, there was no mistaking that. Both of them were terribly afraid.

    "I never wanted this Lance, you must understand that. You, Shiro, Pidge... I didn't want any of this." His voice was trembling, barely above a whisper. Keith was shaking as his finger hovered over the trigger.

    "I know, I know Keith... but that's hard to believe," Lance was in a similar state. Borderline hysterical.

    "Lance, I'm sorry. I swear, I lov-"

    A trigger was pulled and blood was spilled as a limp body hit the floor, an awful 'thump' sound joining it.

    Summary

    All Right this is a rough draft, it's so rough, that you can practically sandpaper the wall. so give me your best Productive criticism, your eyes and an open mind to read the second book.

    Bear with me, I haven't written a decent synopsis but its worth a shot.

    You think three months would be enough time to deal with the supernatural, relentless training, processing and dealing with the dramatic change to ones environment.
    I'm certainly not that person. I am more inclined to slowly adjust step by step and gets used to every little change in my life. comfort is what I desire.
    as usual, the universe has other ideas. The only hybrid in existence, my best friend became a vampire and now I slay vampires for the government.
    Stupid vampires, stupid magic, stupid job.
    I could have just accepted a normal life but the yearning for answers only grew.
    Half vampire to human parents. none of that makes any sense.
    But my problems only got worse thanks to a little blonde vampire.

    Summary

    The countryside rolls away like a landscape of smeared oils. A house-- a manor, he can see now-- is outlined in black against the sky, its own little pocket of green manicured forests daubed on the grey hills.

    Molly watches it. He has nothing better to do.

    The tracks wind upwards towards it; the bulk of the building grows, the gardens separate out into individual hills, and his eyes defocus. The lake that surrounds the manor swings close to the train carriage, and for a moment he is flying over a shining reflection of the sky, surface shaking from the rain--

    Something hangs in the water, still and dark.
