by J P Koenig
ONGOING
175 pages

An ancient conqueror awakens to find his galactic empire in ashes. A street rat discovers a core that changes everything.  A noble woman must fight for her place in her family and for her very survival.  

Vengeance. Artifex spent hundreds of years, forging an empire that could protect humanity from the endless hunger of the Unity.  Now he finds himself in the ruins of all he built, and the people who betrayed him have made a deal with the Unity…

Power. The brutal sands and endless struggle for survival is all Safira has ever known.  But a lucky find gives her the chance to be so much more than a scavenger. But opportunity and danger go hand in hand, and escaping with her life just got that much harder.

Ruthlessness. Elinor North has spent her entire life struggling to prove herself.  As the head of a cadet branch of the powerful Montclair family, she must fight against enemies from both within and without, for her rivals are not just outsiders - they are her own kin. 

All of them are light years apart, but inexorably tied to the ulterior motives of those around them and a shared destiny that will shake civilization to its foundations.

Five years, five years spent in hell in the endless toil of a Kurtz labor camp.  It had broken most men, it would have broken him as well, if not for her…

 

When the opportunity to escape appeared they took it, and she followed him home, home to Helheim.  Home to a nation of industry, a nation wishing to leave behind the sorcery of the past and embrace the machines of the future.  

 

None of that matters to him, he only wants a safe place for her, a place where neither of them has to worry about the Kurtz empire or anyone else ever again.  In order to achieve this goal, he is willing to wade through rivers of blood, gunpowder, and sorcery if needs be.  

 

For not all homecomings are joyous...

The Book of Gideon: 

The Passing of the Old; The Beginning of the New.

(Author's note: the first book, "The Book of Gideon" is being rewritten to meet my new standards for story, narrative, and entertainment. I am around 65% complete, with the main storyline- Gideon's arc being fully complete and eleven chapters to go. Trying to push for a 12/30/2019 finish.)

A son of the CEO of a galactic corporate empire had little prospects. Gideon McDonough took the only opportunity he had for a true life of glory; test flying the newest breakthrough in interstellar travel on the hidden planet of Karmmrak. The flight critically fails, with Gideon and his crew being sent to the edges of the strange uncharted universe, all occupied by humanity's first contact and greatest enemy.
 
An automata of strange origins was buried under rock and soil of an unknown planet. Trapped in her tomb of rocks and debris for eons, she is forced to relive the same day for eternity. Damaged and alone, Sol tries to alert others to her plight, unable to move or repair herself. A bizarre rescuer comes to her aid unintentionally, and thus begins her journey of rediscovery of who she was. Sol discovers she’s far more than just a simple automata.
 
A Fallen Angel is freed from her prison. Her calling: the analysis, dissection, and combating of Demons in the name of Lucifer. Amy, Angel of Magic and the Liberal Arts is not well respected or appreciated by the other Fallen. Desperate to gain her dark Lord's affection, she hatches a scheme with her minions. Theft, chaos, mayhem, and perhaps tea parties, all for the glory of Lucifer. 
 
The disturbing dreams and visions all foreshadow a dark future.
 
Second Book is complete. 
 

The Book of Soltana:

The restoration of the ancient; the emerging of the nascent.
 

Rescued from her stone tomb of eternity from a strange alien life form named L'yophin, Soltana awakens to find herself as a guest in her savior's mansion. Being just the sole surviving head of an ancient automata leaves her solely dependent on others. As she dreams, she unlocks more of herself, more of her lost past. She desires to move once again, with the assistance of her spidery savior. Little does she realize her fate has a different direction. She will explore this new strange realm. In the blackness under the unknown planet, Soltana sets out to discover herself, and help her new friend.

Her adventure begins.

Into the Underrealm.

A being awakens. She finds herself trapped in the blackness of a strange crevice. She remembers little of what happened up above. She has a good idea of what she is. Horror, chimera, mimic, monster, Maw. She prowls the blackness, trying to survive the bizarre realm, devouring any that oppose her and taking their abilities; and their form. There she attempts to recover the broken pieces of her mind and gather strength to return up above. Maw sets out to discover who she is and grow in might.

Her journey begins.

Into the Underrealm.

An Emerald God shrieks in victorious laughter over his slain followers, his ruined city, and his eons of work snuffed out; all of it worth the small fruit of success. The scheming Fallen Angels plot the conquest of the planet in the blackness of stone and shadow; for the glory of their god. A lone Angel wards the planet, the last of his loyal kind. Little does he realize the budding of storms that surrounds him. 

They all coalesce.

Into the Underrealm.
