Book One - Chosen by the Blade

Sybil Twist has followed her mentor's lead and has applied to join Braytons Barracks. Before she can even think of becoming a squire, she and her friends are going to have to pass the entrance exams.

Book Two - Martyr of the Mist

The Guilded Region is greeted by the beginnings of a miasma plague, bringing with it horrific beasts mutated by its curse. A surprise inspection by the Duchess of Violet unveils secrets Alton would rather keep hidden. Veximarl is tossed into the fires of captainship while his squadmates struggle with making new friends, avoiding Stonetoe's wrath and falling in love.

Book Three - Stone Cages - Ongoing

Sybil is still focused on trapping the ancient god, Tyrtain, within a golem. Before she could proceed, a kidnapping plot sends the knights of the barracks scattering to make a rescue. Alton and Veximarl are faced with a dire decision. Save their friend and risk destroying the Gilded Region or let the knights do their job. Even if they can save the day, they still have to prep for their first real mission. Travel home to Carapace and do whatever they can to save a miasma stricken city.

Book Four - Tainted Carapace

The city of Carapace is plagued with issues. Most of all is the noble class, who ignores the plights of the Crimson Region in favor of keeping themselves safe. Grimstone Squad is split among different tasks, each doing their best to stop the tainted beasts and political issues that scar the city.

Book Five - Acolytes

A new year means new missions for the squires for Braytons. No more miasma and no more tainted beasts. The only worries the squires have are troubles of friendship and romance. That and the gods are now warring over the unclaimed Gilded Region. Nothing to worry about! Champions will be chosen. Secrets will be revealed. Who will be the victor? Zaniyah doesn't care. She's just here to have fun.

Book Six - Lost to Faith

Summer begins with exams for the new year. Afterward, Grimstone Squad is split apart by their upcoming missions. Lives are put in peril as a mysterious weapon emerges in the south, yet a greater threat looms over Sybil's head as an enemy reappears to threaten her freedom. Trust is fragile, but faith is far more brittle. What will ring true at the end?

Julia wanted revenge, but she didn't imagine she'd get a demon to help her with it.

Three girls worked together to cast a ritual, and summoned a demon to grant their wishes. Whether its peace of mind, the confidence to not be bullied, or revenge, the demon is willing to please. What matters afterward is the price that has to be paid. Not only by the summoners, but by the ones who have wronged them.

Atticus (Adi) Wulfert comes from a long line of hunters, and now it's time for him to find his calling. Only... He's sort of a failure at it.

His girlfriend thinks he should get a real job, his first teacher was slain by werewolves, and his target has decided to become his not so warm and caring mentor. Quite the opposite of warm, really. Dead cold is more like it.

Adi isn't sure if he's being kept around as an emergency foodsource or if this vampire really wants to help him, but whatever the case may be, he doesn't have much choice in the matter.

What would it take to grant a wish, even if it was a wish that you didn't make in the first place?

Quentin's in a good place. He's set in school, not looking for romance, and has his priorities straight, but his brother, Derek, is struggling. No job, no girl, and still living in his college apartment despite already graduating. It's not like he isn't trying, but he certainly hasn't had much in the way of luck.

One accidental summoning of an ancient demon later, and Quentin might have what he needed. Magic that would change his brother's life for the better. Should he ignore it, or should he see what would happen if he were to fall prey to the demon's power?

Figment. A special device created by Eremus that enables one's imagination to become marketable products.

Simon Tog is among the newest group of directors hoping to launch their franchises, but they will have to compete against each other in the world of Pilot. Acquire money to create more spells, gain employees to help create their products, and literally battle with other franchises for funding. All while defending themselves, because if they die in Pilot, they are banished from the Figment program.

This was all information that Simon accidentally glossed over before entering pilot. If he had known, maybe he wouldn't have selected a porn game as his passion project.
