Chapter 43

Conmer stepped back out into the busy streets, packed tightly with hundreds of rosearn swimming in their own plans and schemes. He really didn’t want to go back to the ship yet.

“Much better. Thanks.” Andie shook her head and took a deep breath. It was nice to have her Will to Live back – she really hated the depression born in its absence. It was a nasty little paradox of emotional energy swirling inside a shell of apathy. Pain and pleasure alike pulled into a black …[continue reading]

Chapter 42

Conmer wiped some of the blood off his ear. He hated this sort of wound, the actual damage to his body was minimal but it just would not stop bleeding. “What a waste of a perfectly good bullet.

Chapter 1

Andie smirked at the monster in front of her, stilling her breath as she waited for it to make the first move. “You know, you show up often enough that I might need to give you a name.” She leapt out of the way of the creature’s fist as it swung through the brick below …[continue reading]

“Very well. I’ll take a mystery box.” Conmer’s facial expression stiffened slightly, he’d been hoping to spend a lot less money. “Now, about my knife?” “We’ll get to the knife in a bit.

Prologue

Andie sat on the ledge of a disorderly skyscraper. Its components were sleek and professional, but arranged in an inconsistent and unstable pattern.
