In the years after the American Civil War, the West is wild, and the East is run by the robber barons battling each other for power and money. The range is untamed and blood-soaked, and the cities are dazzling tributes to culture and questionable scientific development. Outlaws roam free on the frontiers, and crooked lawmen and Pinkertons compete with lawless bounty hunters for the prices on their heads. Tess Mercury and her posse are the best damn bounty hunters in the West. When Tess and her posse, trick shooter “Bonny” Quimby Burton, mad scientist “Lightning” Hazel Harley and Vaughn, a former slave, are run out of town after brawling with some card players who don’t take kindly to being swindled by Quimby, Tess decides a life of leisure just doesn’t suit them.

They go in search of a new bounty to hunt and discover the case of Zeke “Angel” Cooper, a Pinkerton wanted for murder in Boston. The hunt for Angel leads them through the untamed frontier where Indians lie in wait, young men fighting for honor are shot dead in the streets, Che Chucho and his posse of peculiar bounty hunters are hunting them, and savvy, sophisticated Madam Esther Star courts the big bugs from D.C. at her famous brothel, the Governor’s Mansion. When Tess and her posse finally run into Angel, they’re tangled up in an even greater mystery involving faulty death rays, crooked lawmen, missing secretaries, murdered government agents, bribery, corrupt Congressman, clockwork horses, Tess’ long lost husband, and Sterling Rush, the technology robber baron who might just be a more dangerous enemy than any of them have ever encountered.

New Coventry, Virginia is a quiet, peaceful town. The people are friendly, the streets are safe, and hardly anything ever happens until the mysterious Jayne family moves into the creepy old house in Dinwiddie Hills and begins pedaling medical miracles in the form of hypnotism and New Age medicine. Something about the Jaynes and their handsome, inscrutable sons, Van and Sable, is not quite right.

Still reeling from the tragic death of her mother, Aurora Geller feels like something is missing in her life, and the Jaynes might be the solution. But when she meets Sable and runs into his terrifying brother, Van, Sable warns her away from his family. By then, it’s already much too late. She can’t stop thinking about Sable and the strange, breathless feeling she gets whenever he is near. She just wants to be close to him, and she isn’t going to let him stop her. When she starts seeing Mariah Jayne to treat her depression, she hardly notices when she begins to change. Sable does, and he’ll do anything to keep Aurora away from his mother.

Then the bizarre deaths begin, and Aurora begins to suspect the Jaynes aren’t exactly as they seem. She’s right. They’re monsters. The police might be baffled by the freak accidents, but there is something sinister about these deaths, and the Jaynes aren’t the only suspects. Sable is trying to discover the killer and stop the deaths, but he is sidetracked by the human girl he can’t stop thinking about and who loves him despite his secrets. Though they’re forbidden from being together, Sable and Aurora are in love, but they must stop the monster responsible for the deaths, hide from a malicious Van, and escape his parents before one or both of them is killed or they are torn apart forever.

Angel of the Abyss New cover

Abyssium, the mysterious, toxic blue rock mined from the deepest caverns of the Scyllan Sea, can sustain life, power astonishing and impossible machines, and turn men to depraved monsters, hopelessly dependent upon the resource to survive. Duke Julian of Tyr, one of the three tenuously peaceful nations in the Abyssium zone, has become so addicted to the Abyss that he has fallen deeply into debt to Jila, Queen of Varuna, a country rich in the resource and plagued with its own troubles. When Jila refuses to dissolve the rapacious Duke’s debt to her nation, she falls victim to an assassination attempt, which ends in the loss of a young, heroic soldier. Fearing more lives may be lost to the Duke’s hunger for Abyss, Jila engages Kai Vale, an Abyssally augmented mercenary with peculiar abilities. In her quest to discover the identity of her Queen’s true adversary, Kai is pursued by monstrous Ducal guards and meets the dashing Draven Lockley, Commander of neighbouring Leza’s Imperial Guard. As Leza becomes embroiled in the conflict, mercenary, soldier and sovereign run afoul of a guild of assassins, murderous nobles, fantastic and dangerous Abyssal machines, and a deadly man with no face and an inexorable thirst for the Abyss.
