The mission was simple. Discover and explore uncharted planets. What Captain Foster’s crew discovered was an ancient nemesis.
And they accidentally awoke it.
Now, Captain Foster’s mission has changed. Her crew has become the galaxy’s only hope to thwart the largest invasion to threaten the Milky Way, from a foe thought to only exist in myths and legends.
And the only way to do that is by building a mishmash team of explorers, marines, scientists, and psionic aliens, then prepare for a voyage to the edge of the galaxy, the origin of the ancient threat.
What they discover there will either be our last hope to prevent the galaxy from burning or valuable intel to organize us for the invasion’s final phase.
And we are so not ready for an all-out invasion.
Foster and her crew need to reach worlds at the edge of the galaxy. And they need to do it fast.
Contains four books
The Siege of Sirius
After escaping from the Autumnfall Empire, Guy and his friends travel to Alfheimr, the planet of the elves, to investigate the rumors of a second princess Averyl.
It turns out there are two fae princesses in the galaxy, one a runaway from the empire, and the other a princess of thieves.
And the travel brochure failed to mention that Alfheimr is a level 20+ planet.
Lost on the elven planet, surrounded by higher-level enemies, Guy, and his companions must seek the aid of Tempeste L’Aignelet, a beautiful elven sword maiden and princess of the Lumière Kingdom.
Correction, that’s three princesses and one Paladin.
That’s a lot for Guy to handle and potentially distract him from a threat in the frozen northern lands, the dark elves. The dark elves have an interest in the princesses around Guy and have allied themselves with a not-so-old enemy.
The only way out of this mess is to level up, unlock a subclass, and do it all before the invaders from the north besiege the Lumière Kingdom.
All while keeping in mind that something is changing the galaxy and adding RPG rules to everything for an unknown goal.
Note: Contains graphic violence, adult language, explicit sexual content, and adult humor.
Paladins are supposed to exist in stories and games, right?
That’s what galactic space smuggler Guy Sutherland thought too.
Now he’s a Paladin.
It started when he held an ancient sword, brimming with strange magic. Things got weird after that, like stat screens listing his nifty skills and attributes. He has no idea why, but he’s not alone.
Xanthe, one of the few shadow angels free from slavery, is experiencing something similar. A sword assigned Xanthe the class of a Blade Dancer and has given her enough charisma to charm anyone to her will.
The planet of Faeheim is undergoing the same change. A wave of energy is changing the world, assigning classes and levels to the fae, turning animals into monsters, and spurring the empire to commit multiple atrocities.
Atrocities the empire can’t risk people like Guy and Xanthe finding out.
Cut off from his ship and the rest of the galaxy, Guy must survive on the gamified planet, level up, and learn what makes him and Xanthe special.
Before the empire gets to them.
There’s a reason Guy and Xanthe were chosen for this and if they don’t learn it soon, then a lot of people are going to get one-shotted by high-level imperial soldiers.

Captain Foster and her crew found a shortcut to get there. And like all things they’ve encountered across the Milky Way, it’s paved with dangers like the Draconian invaders and their fleets of organic ships.
New worlds, alien empires, and ancient secrets await the crew, and at least half of those are hostile.
But the worst threat they face is not the hostile alien fleets, the deadly radiation belts, or the mysteries of Omega Centauri and its uncountable number of star systems.
It’s the Imperial infiltrator lurking in the Johannes Kepler’s cargo hold. Waiting for the order to make Captain Foster and her crew have an unfortunate accident.
Before the crew explores the unknown planets in search of the Draconian homeworld, they need to find the threat from the known worlds they brought with them. Before it finds them.
There are just two problems the threesome faces.
1.) They don’t play well together.
2.) All three are on the no-fly list.
Going down under to Australia won’t be easy. And that’s going to suck a lot for the struggling resistance factions conducting guerilla strikes against the authoritative rule of the Pacific Federation and its mega-corporations.
The rebels need the help of Estrella’s nanite powers and newfound witch friends. And Estrella needs the intel the rebels have on the prototype, and Ray, who has gone missing searching for it and Arianna.
To enter Federation controlled territory illegally, Estrella must seek aid from a mysterious digital coven found in the deepest parts of the dark web.
So deep, no phone, computer, or laptop can reach them. Only the mind of a cybernetic witch.
A trip to Australia could be as simple as jacking into the net and downloading in a new body with the coven’s help.
Unless corporate paid soldiers start giving Estrella and her two dazzling companions a hard time for the ruckus they caused earlier.
Nobody said witches play by the rules.
My name is Reika. I don’t know who I am anymore other than the following facts:
I used to be a member of the Yakuza.
I think a succubus has a thing for me.
The police shot me six times.
After my discharge from the hospital I learned that I had the unique talent to control fire. That’s right, a modern day pyromancer. I have no idea where these powers came from, the doctor that worked on me upped and vanished, along with all records of me ever being admitted to the hospital.
That’s when shady people from the shadows began to stalk me, some even had the balls to attack me. Don’t worry, I flambéed them all, I can take care of myself. What I am worried about are the people of New York City. Who’s going to defend them when my war with these shadow people reaches a boiling point?
I don’t want to be a heroine. I just want my life back.
Death by one of them is also the leading cause of death among those in the LAPD.
Estrella Rodriguez just got transferred to the LAPD. She wasn’t pleased to learn about it.
As a cyborg witch, augmented with state-of-the-art cyberware, Estrella commands a horde of nanites to bend the world to her will. And sometimes bend the laws of physics.
Her first day on the job takes a bizarre turn when she stumbles upon several witch kidnappings. She has no idea who’s responsible and why.
A hacker named Ray holds the answers, so does a telepathic black op operative looking to collect Ray’s head, and a flirtatious witch hoping to distract Estrella with her smiles and charm.
There’s something weird brewing, something the corporations want, and the kidnapped witches are just the start of it.
If Estrella can’t get to Ray, and the truth he holds on time, then the streets of Los Angeles will get really violent, real quick …
… More so than it already is.
And don’t get shot by assassins.
Somewhere in the back alleys and seedy nightclubs, below the densely packed apartments, is proof the Yoshida Corporation played a role in the rise of a violent warlock gang.
The plan was simple, hit the gang, hard. Find proof. And maybe rescue the kidnapped witches who have been missing for over a month.
And if it wasn’t for mysterious assassins showing up, they might have done that sooner.
The assassins call themselves the Specters. You can’t see them. You can’t hear them. And you have no idea where they are. Until they pull the trigger.
Rumor has it they’re enhanced by cyberware too, but nobody knows for certain. Because nobody’s ever seen one.
How do you stop invisible assassins? That’s a question Estrella and Ray need to answer soon. Otherwise, it’s going to be a major pain for them to expose corporate corruption with bullets in their heads.
And that’s assuming they don’t get their throats slit first.
She slept in.
Now she’s a wanted terrorist.
Maybe killing all those corporate soldiers overseas was a bad choice.
Now on the run like her friends, Estrella must prove their innocence by shutting down a Federation military factory before it mass produces the prototype of the new TEK suit.
The Federation having the prototype wouldn’t be such a big deal if there weren’t a war going on and if they knew the prototype wasn’t a piece of armor.
It’s a weapon, and not even its designers know of its true power.
And its ability to change civilization forever and not in a good way.
Estrella needs to do more than clear her name. She needs to ensure the next war after this isn’t fought with sticks and stones.
The fae has summoned a sexy but deadly gunslinging demon hunting girl to cull the demonic presence in New York City. Not a big deal I thought at first, hell, it makes my job easier.
Then I remembered I’m a half-succubus, and my best friend Emily, is a shapeshifting demon cat. We just got placed at the top of the fae’s hit list.
The ruthless demon hunter will rip apart the city to get to me. And if they can’t kill me? Then they have orders to kill my family and friends.
This is a nemesis I can’t defeat alone.
I need new allies. I need to end this war. I need to resurrect Lilith to help me.
And I need to do it before I lose any more friends than I already have to the fae and demon war.
New York City is under siege by rogue fae who infiltrated the FBI. Every time I try to fight back, I lose and make the situation worse, and I’m starting to understand why.
Inside me lays the worst enemy this city has faced. Myself. There’s an ancient succubus soul inside me, and she’s come out to play with the lives of New York’s population.
It’s time I accepted that I’m not the heroine everyone wants me to be. I’m the villain, and I have been from the start.
To save this city and my friends, I need to defeat myself. No matter the cost.
At first, I thought it was the work of demons until a bunch of them ended up dead. Their attackers all used magical powers but weren’t demonic in origin. It goes against everything we knew about the paranormal world.
There’s a new threat in town. They have magical powers and they aren’t demons.
I need to find out who they are, what they’ve done with the missing people, and why they’re slaying demons.
I need to go undercover and deceive them, and I need to do it fast before New York’s population goes to zero. The clock is ticking. This is going to be my most mind-boggling case yet.
Could you imagine a city like this without people? Yeah, it’s creepy as hell, and I got to fix it.
