Honor and Shadows is a 10,000-word prequel novelette set just before the start of Hunt the Stars. Captain Octavia Zarola needs an infusion of credits—fast—if she’s going to keep her close-knit bounty hunting crew paid and fed. Tracking down an escaped embezzler on a backwater planet should be a piece of cake, but bounties are rarely as easy as they seem. As the crew closes in on their quarry, the hunt becomes entangled with a local criminal overlord, and Tavi will have to decide what’s more important: money or honor, and how much she’s willing to risk for either one.

A ten year veteran of the Providence Rhode Island vice squad Gwen "GiGi" Gellman began her life as a foundling and is used to being on her own. So when she finds herself unemployed and on the outs after a standard bust goes bad resulting in a bloodbath, she welcomes the occasion to break from routine. She scrapes together enough capital to start her own PI business specializing in "family problems." But, in doing so she never guessed that she would uncover her own mysterious and mystical past. When GiGi becomes involved in the case of a missing wife and child, she initially dismisses the matter as good sense on the wife's part--she knows the husband to be less than stellar in his role. But, as her investigation progresses GiGi discovers a pattern of lies and deceptions, some of which expose hidden ties to her own mystifying existence. Otherworldly powers try to intercede, and soon GiGi finds not only her own life threatened, but those of her friends and family as well. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact.

Shadow’s Light By: Danica Belber In this beautiful and dangerous world, there isn’t peace among the races of the Siphthan, Arvai, and Harpies, but there isn’t open war. Until the King of the Siphthan destroys the Arvai city of Skalin. Aramay and Hayden barely escape the slaughter. Aramay just wants to get her friend to safety – and ignore her own unsettling dreams and growing, inexplicable powers. As they journey, the two become involved in a Siphthan rebellion and gain wary and unexpected allies of Siphthan, Arvai, and Harpies. When Aramay meets the Durani, the elements in physical form, myth becomes reality. The Durani have great power – but nothing, they say, compared to Aramay herself. She is the immortal Darnae, powerful beyond anything she can conceive – powerful enough to harm those she loves the most. Filled with magic and danger, dark fears and fragile hopes, Shadow’s Light is a rich fantasy of the beauty and chaos of self-discovery.


They come bearing the Windwalker amulet, though the gift of a magical artifact does not guarantee a warm welcome—especially when it’s carried by a drow elf.

SHADOWS A Collection of Broken Dreams and Heartaches Inspired by William Blake’s Illuminations, Shadows, a collection of free-form poetry and short stories by author Aren K. Manahan, fuses text and images to go beyond thought and evoke emotion. The focus of this collection is heartache—not only how it affects people, but also how they choose to deal with it. Manahan peels back all superficial layers to focus on the hurt and pain within each of us. Shadows follows various characters as they spiral out of control and try to grasp a sense of reality they once felt. These narratives push you to go beyond the text and feel deeply for these characters—either hatred or pity—as they highlight the hurt that we all feel at times. What becomes apparent is that some are able to cope with the pain, while others are not—and it destroys them. Shadows reminds us that not everyone is fortunate enough to have a happy ending. We have all had shadows pass through our lives at one point in time, and the time has come to confront them and move on with life.
