    Summary

    "Images came, like flickers of a candle: Dark stones. Dark metal. Faint fire. A spoon in his hand, as someone urged him to eat. A stinking pit that he knew he was duty-bound to fill. A loom nearby that he vaguely remembered he had once known how to work, but which now stood as silent as the rest of his world."

    He can't speak. He can barely see. He experiences only fear and the faint whispers of something he had once known.

    But an intruder into his secure retreat from danger will pull him into awareness of what stands before him. What stands there is renewed danger . . . and the hope of something more.

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Summary

    It starts off innocently, like these types of things always do. In this case, it’s an innocuous statement made by one of the regulars in Castiel Novak’s bar, made in the day’s dying light.

    “My brother’s coming into town.”
    -
    It's funny how one sentence seems to turn Castiel's life upside down.

    Summary

    "Sometimes I feel that he is as mysterious as the gods, and that he is hiding something of vital importance from me. Something that would transform my life."

    Few events are more thrilling in a young man's life than a blood feud between two villages. Or so Adrian thought.

    Torn between affection toward his traditional-minded father and worship of his peace-loving, heretical priest, Adrian finds himself caught between two incompatible visions of his duty to the gods. Then the Jackal God sends Adrian a message that will disrupt his world and send him fleeing to a new and perilous life.

    Summary

    "It's all about torture. That's what I didn't understand for a long time. The High Seeker has been seeking out and punishing those of us who wish to show greater mercy to the prisoners than the Code allows. Those of us who question whether it's right to torture prisoners."

    The Eternal Dungeon is no longer a prison. It's a battlefield.

    Split apart from their closest loves and friends, a small group of prison-workers seek to abolish the use of torture against prisoners in the queendom's royal dungeon. Time is running out, for the deadly High Seeker has already flogged and executed prison-workers who oppose his policies.

    Do the reformers have enough time and skill to bring about radical change in the dungeon? Will they be able to overcome their mistrust of one another?

    Summary

    Who had Kazuya been before Eijun had turned himself to a flicker of flame and turned Kazuya’s willpower to ashes-- before he had grinned and made Kazuya himself into nothing more than a heartbeat and hungry eyes? With every pulse of Eijun’s body, Kazuya felt himself disappear.

    Summary

    "This is the right place for you, boy. They'll school you here to be a right-standing man, one who can keep control over his actions, like any good man should. You just got to keep yourself open to learn and to grow."

    How far can trust grow, when you're in a place you despise?

    Arrested for a crime he doesn't regret, Bat ends up handcuffed to a group of fellow city boys and sent on a long journey into the countryside. He knows that he is being transported to a prison for delinquent servant boys, but what form will his imprisonment take?

    Tattooed with the rank-mark of servant, Bat must learn how to keep from losing his temper with the men who carry the keys to his freedom. But in the unbelievable world where he has been deposited, in which a genial master orders strict punishments and a servant acts like a master, will Bat be able to locate the door to his release? Which of his fellow prisoners can he trust to help him?

    And will he survive long enough to find out?

    Inspired by true events at a turn-of-the-century reform school, this novella (short novel) is set in an alternative version of the Chesapeake Bay region during the 1910s.

    Summary

    "Fairview was the finest friend a man could have, and the finest battle-companion. I dared not risk doing anything that might break our friendship."

    On a hot summer's day, on a high hill surrounded by the enemy, the best battle-companion can turn out to be the truth.

    Rook and Fairview have worked alongside each other for years, first as officers in the navy, then as officers on a steamship, and finally as colonels in an invading army. Members of a nation where tiny differences in rank are considered all-important, the two men defy convention by treating each other as equals.

    But now their life-long bond is about to meet its greatest strain, when they are ordered to seize and defend a hill whose landscape is unknown, in the company of soldiers who may be incompetent or treacherous. Will Rook and Fairview's friendship remain by the end of the battle? Or will their lives take an unexpected detour as they struggle to survive on Spy Hill?

    Rated mature for violence. I'm serializing this novella weekly, but it's completely written and edited.

    Summary

    -Per ogni cinese che si ritenga tale, la Storia è la concretizzazione della volontà del Cielo. Ed è in questo progetto che non conosce tempo che ognuno di noi deve trovare il proprio posto, anche a costo di usare la forza per ottenerlo.
    Passavano gli anni e i secoli, le voci che pronunciavano imperi e sentenze, persino intere dinastie tra vita e morte e crescita, eppure l'elemento davvero immortale e imperituro non era tanto l'esistenza di Yao Wang quanto il credo che aveva assunto come verità propria – e nella sua essenza più intima e concreta, la moralità di ogni capo umano che ne componeva l'anima interna. Dalla pianura distesa dello Henan, dove la placida e lucente nuova capitale risplendeva della bellezza dell'odierna Dinastia, ai monti più remoti del meridionale Hunan il medesimo pensiero, il medesimo sentimento, il medesimo sentire.

    Summary

    A sequel to my Sense and Sensibility Destiel (again, apologies to Jane Austen). It is 1811, nearly two years on from the wedding of Castiel Dashwood and Dean Ferrers, and what remains of the latter is now the proud father of an alpha son Scaden, with a second child on the way. As Great Britain enters the Regency Period, the Ferrers and Dashwood families prepare to come to London for a Grand Ball (or two, because two balls are always better than one) - but Fate has a few surprises in store.
