Star Mage Quest
Carina Lin is a mage with a mission. After her parents’ disappearance when she was a toddler, she was brought up by her grandmother. Then the old lady’s death left her a slum brat, alone and friendless on a godforsaken planet at the ass-end of the galaxy. All she wants is to find other mages like herself, but her plan is fraught with danger. Warring clans are fighting for galactic supremacy, and if they discover her powers she risks slavery and torture. A golden opportunity arises to fulfil her dream and win her heart’s desire. But if she loses, death will seem inviting.
The Bar at the End of the World
Zeke is a bad guy. He didn’t choose to be. It’s just who he is. It’s who he has to be to survive in a post-apocalyptic world where trust is as scarce as water. He’s got nobody. No family. No friends. And he left behind the woman he loved for her own good. But it’s time to change. After a brush with death far out in the wasteland, he decides he’s done risking his life to help his greedy bosses control who gets to drink water and when.
