Daomu follows young Sean and his initiation into a secret society of tomb robbers, where he learns about his family’s legacy: protecting hidden underworlds that exist beneath our feet. Along with a ragtag band of marauders, Sean must survive the terrors of the deep, solve his father's brutal murder, and ultimately claim his birthright as leader of the Daomu. But forces are hell bent on stopping him...
He was cruel. He was ambitious. He was China
Within a handful of years, he had broken empires that were older, stronger, and richer than his own. Once broken, he put them together into his new empire. The empire of Qin. Bound together with new laws, languages and mores, the emperor did not rest until he saw harmony under the sky.
He was Qin Shi Huangdi. First emperor of China.
Legacy of a Thousand Suns
Old rivals bearing powerful new technologies have declared war on the Sian Empire. Princess Illaria’s enemies are hunting for her – and if she falls into their clutches the empire will be doomed. Only you can save her now…
Long ago, they came from the sky.
Huge ships battling to the death. Falling, they lost their power, their control, their lives. Crashing to earth like two massive meteors.
One all science, metal, edges. One living, organic, biotic.
The people saw them fall. Stayed away for lifetimes. Then, the boldest crept forward. Explored the drop zones. Picked up pieces.
Learned. Put to use.
Now, the world has become two parts - each reflecting a fallen ship.
The nine realms are in upheaval and the end of the world is quickly approaching. While gods and giants fight, the fate of the world lays in the hands of an unlikely hero.
The Aesir and the Frost Giants are at War. Ragnarok and the end of all that is can be seen coming over the horizon. The fate of humanity and the world is in the hands of these two warring factions, both intent on the destruction of the other at whatever the cost. The Aesir know the prophesy of Ragnarok and are willing to accept their fate if they can also destroy their mortal enemies. But The Frost Giants are led by one of their own. Loki has taken up arms against the Aesir and has his own, mysterious reasons for bringing about the end of the world.
But Freyja does not want the world to come to an end. She seeks the help of a mortal, Aric. He must gather heroes and weapons, weapons only mortals can wield, to tip the scales and end the war before the war ends the world.
Unfortunately, Loki also knows of these weapons and has recruited his own human accomplices. They will meet and fight over the artifacts in times to come but for now they begin at different points in the world. Also, Loki is trying to free his children, Jormungand, the world serpent, and Fenrir, the wolf.
In the end, perhaps the humans will use their weapons to defeat both the Aesir and the Frost Giants and begin to carve out their own destinies. Perhaps that is the day the gods die.
Shrapnel (for Radical)

Unwilling to let their brave stand against the Alliance be in vain, the hero and leader of their resistance, Vijaya “Sam” Narayan, must reverse their fortunes before time runs out once and for all.

Once the Bacteria War had settled, nearly 4/5 of humanity had been destroyed. Zakall reverted to a state of nature. Massive cities crumbled and now sat in ruins. Though people tried to reignite the technological wizardry prevalent before the wars, no one could shock the civilization out of its deadly recession.
The world was split into two distinct groups: The people who retained their peripheral organs and survived with their biotechnology intact were known as the Upgrades. The neuron biotech surgeries caused permanent necrosis to the subject’s hair follicles, making their bodies smooth and hairless. The other group were the Primals, people who refused to let the surgeries compromise their function as natural human beings. However, some of the Primals were simply unable to get the surgery for one reason or another. As a result, their hair grew out, making Upgrades and Primals easily distinguishable.
The Upgrades have assumed control of Zakall, and fancy themselvesthe superior race. The Primals live in the slums and are considered to be a dead technology; good-for-nothing peasants.
The zodiac's 12 signs have deep and enduring significance to many societies.
What if they were alive?
What is they could feel - what if they were angry?
How would they act, how would they attack, how would they kill?
