Book Two: Black the Tides

Something deadly lurks below the surface . . .

If Cole can't restore her connection to the dreamscape before it's too late, her newfound friends won't be the only ones to pay the price. But more than just monsters stand in her way—and regaining the power to stop them just might cost her everything.

What happens when you release the hero within--and find out she isn't you?

Book Three: Burn the Skies

In the city of nightmares, death is far from the end.

Who knew a ghost could get up to so much trouble? Cole's never been in a worse bind. But her continued existence, such as it is, is far from the only thing at risk.

If she can't find a way to keep the Mara from being unleashed by the one person she never could have imagined, not only her city, but her whole world will be devoured.

In this thrilling conclusion to the Threads of Dreams trilogy, the spark of revolution is lit—and even a drowned city can burn.

Side Story (4.3): Boy With No Name

When you’re nothing, you have to grab everything you can and hang onto it with everything you’ve got.

Ravel clawed his way up from failed test subject to master of the decadent underground club Freedom—not to mention shadow prince of the Towers of Refuge—and his ambition is far from sated.

But when the dreamwalker Ravel's been obsessed with since childhood vanishes from his monster-infested city, he risks everything he's built and become to chase her down.

Cut off from everything he knows, can this master manipulator find the right thread to pull and win back his love? Or will the conscience he's been running from all his life finally take him down?

Tragic pasts and twisted futures collide in Boy With No Name, a novellette-length companion story to Threads of Dreams book 2, Black the Tides. Also available in Fiction-Atlas Press anti-hero anthology The Devil You Know.

Side Story (4.4): Spectres of the Old World

Long-dead ghosts are rising.

It was just another mission. Hang back. Smile. Soothe ruffled feathers. Keep the peace. Be who they need, not who he was ordered to be.

But when Ash’s squad stumbles across a lone survivor amidst the ruins of a long-lost northern city, a battle with the local monsters uncovers some truly life changing—maybe even world-changing—secrets.

Will Ash shoulder the responsibility he was raised to carry, or throw off the chains of the old world and dive into the hungry shadows after his long-lost love?

An ecopunk dystopian novelette micro-trilogy. Recommended to read following Burn the Skies, due to spoilers. Takes place just prior to Blind the Eyes in Part 1, during BTE/BTT/BTS in Part 2, and after the end of the main trilogy in Part 3.
