‘“I will carry you through whatever is to come. Through fire and water, and through the dark. All for you. All for your love” The year is 1863. Byrdie Trimmer is an aspiring writer, and an independent woman (to the distaste of almost every man she meets). After living her entire life in the city, she decides to move to a small town that is in the middle of nowhere. There, she meets a narcissistic sheriff who believes he’s a ladies man who is now determined to make Byrdie’s life hell, and five young gentlemen, one of whom could be the only reason to make her stay. Unfortunately, he can’t. As she leaves for her five-day trip back to the city, she is ambushed, and left fatally wounded. Will the boys be able to save her in time? Will she ever find the love she wants?’

“A girl and her notebook, a boy and his hat, thievery, love, clockwork, corruption, the rich and the poor, and rebellion seething in a divided city. Chantilly Rosewater thinks she’s been thrown out of her element when her family inherits a massive estate in the wealthy sector, the Upper City. However, she finds that inheritance is nothing compared to being kidnapped on her wedding day. By the most notorious thief in the city of Peralton. But the Midnight Hatter is not all that he seems, and soon Chantilly is working with him and his band of strangely likable cohorts. What starts out as a series of simple “acts of defiance” begins to escalate until the friends find that they have a host of angry citizens who are looking to them to light the spark of revolt…”

“The year is 2102 and surprise, things are a little different. Nations have fallen and come together again in the form of pseudo-empires or tiny independent states. The world’s power base is held in the city states, governed with an iron fist by mega corporations with a select few farming states coming in second. The world is a bizarre mixture of a melting pot culture and pluralism. Official languages have more or less disappeared as literacy rates plummet, but a child who cannot even read may speak as many as four or five languages.
That is not the world of Natsume Yukio, however. Yukio grew up in the lap of luxury, the son of one of Tokyo’s most esteemed business men and heir to a mega corporation strong enough to hold its own in the cutthroat hierarchy of the world’s mega corporations. Educated by the best and armed with enough charisma to con a politician, Yukio thinks himself ready to take over company security even at the age of twenty three. Things are changing however.An underground movement birthed in the militaristic Shanghai protectorate has made its way from mainland China into neighbouring countries as well as Hong Kong and Japan. A clever terrorist group calling itself Kuroi ame, Black Rain, has popped up. Forgoing the tactics of yesteryear, Kuroi ame has abandoned protests and bombs in favour of viruses and cyber warfare. Yukio is roped into a task force, Shinkai or Deep Waters, usually just called Shinkai. Shinkai has been charged with flushing the group’s members out and doing so quickly and quietly.Yukio soon finds himself going toe to toe with Kuroi ame’s most infamous member, unimaginatively dubbed Yuurei: Ghost. Yuurei is a clever being to be sure, slipping through holes and evading every trap set for him. Yukio’s respect for his enemy grows as Yuurei drops hints about their life, but the chase quickly grows deadly when information never before targeted is copied and stolen, and Yukio’s orders have changed. The chase is no longer simply flushing rabbits from the warren; Jigyou Fuyu is on a seek and destroy mission and no one is going to escape unscathed.”
