Xandrian Stone Book 1: Beginning of a Legend

This is the first diary of Supreme Admiral (ret.) Xandrian Stone.
In this first diary he describes the beginning of his career, how he enters the Swiss Federated Space Navy and his first time in space.
There has been peace for almost 500 years, so the navy was not a place for adventurers or people thriving in dangerous environments but patient people who did not mind waiting half a life for their first time in space. The fleet was small, and if you were not special or distinguished yourself in the academy getting into a crew was very, very unlikely.
Some magical specialties like sensors or navigation were rare and sought after, so if you were born with an affinity for one of those colors you were in luck. Weapons was by far the most common color and – well, waiting list. Long waiting list.
Omni Wizards were the rarest by far. Those had no single affinity but an equal affinity for everything. Omnis did, therefore, never spend any time on any waiting list.
Xandrian Stone was back then an 18 year old hopeful youth who knew that he had strong magic – it just had not yet manifested itself. That was very common, and the classification officers had their classification rods to help dormant magic to manifest itself. So, Xandrian Stone begins his first diary when he was waiting in line, hoping for the classification rod to unlock his magic.
Just like every other youth attending Classification Day. **

Witch Way to Amethyst

Stacy Justice is a young reporter who lives in Chicago, far away from the kooky small town of Amethyst, Illinois, where she was raised by a family of witches. She’s perfectly content with her career, her cat, and her lack of a love life until her cousin informs her that their grandfather is deathly ill. Stacy road-trips home only to discover that her grandfather was poisoned, her grandmother has confessed to the crime, and there’s a new chief in town who is easy on the eyes, but tough on witches.
Now, the reluctant witch must prove her grandmother’s innocence, save her grandfather from meeting an untimely end, and fight the killer who’s bent on destroying them all.
This is the prequel novel to the Stacy Justice Witch Mysteries – where secrets only lead to more secrets and being the member of a family means that you make sacrifices that can lead to murder.

Will Do Magic for Small Change

Cinnamon Jones dreams of stepping on stage and acting her heart out like her famous grandparents, Redwood and Wildfire. But at 5’10” and 180 pounds, shes theatrically challenged. Her family life is a tangle of mystery and deadly secrets, and nobody is telling Cinnamon the whole truth. Before her older brother died, he gave Cinnamon The Chronicles of the Great Wanderer, a tale of a Dahomean warrior woman and an alien from another dimension who perform in Paris and at the 1893 Chicago Worlds Fair. The Chronicles may be magic or alien science, but the story is definitely connected to Cinnamon’s family secrets. When an act of violence wounds her family, Cinnamon and her theatre squad determine to solve the mysteries and bring her worlds together. Andrea Hairston’s vision is breathtaking. She weaves sweeping historical narratives and mythology with the wisdom of the elders, and shines light on the pressing issues of the day. In her hands language is a blessing, and the familiar and the fantastic become magic, one and the same.–Sheree Rene Thomas, editor of the award-winning Dark Matter anthology series. This is one of those books you start and realize you’ve been waiting to read for a long, long time without knowing. Will Do Magic for Small Change is a deep breath, a good friend, a heartbreaking, game-changing, life-affirming, truth-telling powerhouse. I love this book.–Daniel Jos Older, author of Half-Resurrection Blues and Salsa Nocturna

THE HARD WAY

Roger Ramius Sergei Alexander Chiang McClintock hasn’t done anything the easy way.

The spoiled playboy prince grew up the hard way on the planet Marduk. Watching ninety percent of your bodyguards — bodyguards who have become friends, closer to you than your own brothers and sisters — die to keep you alive will do that. And it tends to make you dangerous . . . perhaps in too many ways.

Now he’s coming home, but home isn’t what it was when he left. Traitors have murdered his brother and sister, his nieces and nephews. His mother, the Empress, is still alive, but in the hands of Roger’s own biological father, who controls her through drugs and physical and psychological torture. A new heir to the Throne has been conceived, and once the child is born his mother will no longer be necessary to the traitors’ plans. Home Fleet, the largest and most powerful of the Empire’s fleets is under the traitors’ control, and no one in a position of power on Old Earth has the means — or the will — to do anything about it.

And, just to make things perfect, the Empire has been told that the real traitor is Prince Roger Ramius Sergei Alexander Chiang McClintock.

With the twelve survivors of Bravo Company of the Empress’ Own, a few hundred three-meter tall Mardukans, his one-time tutor and present chief of staff, an elephant-sized flarta pack beast, his faithful pet Dogzard, and the ghost of his greatest ancestor, Prince Roger must somehow retake the Empire from the men who control it . . . before his new brother is born and his mother dies.

It’s an impossible task, but Prince Roger knows all about impossible tasks, and the surviving Bronze Barbarians and the Mardukans of the Basik’s Own believe he can do it. They’re prepared to storm the gates of Hell itself at his heels in order to retake the Empire.

But after they do, can they save it from Prince Roger, as well

**The seventeenth novel in Cherryh’s *Foreigner* space opera series, a groundbreaking tale of first contact and its consequences…**
The human and *atevi* inhabitants of Alpha Station, orbiting the world of the *atevi* , have picked up a signal from an alien *kyo* ship telling them that the ship is inbound toward Alpha. Five thousand of the inhabitants of Alpha are human refugees from the now derelict Reunion Station. They have seen this scenario before, when a single *kyo* ship swooped into the Reunion system and, without a word, melted a major section of Reunion Station with a single pass. These refugees, who were rescued through the combined efforts of an allied group of humans and *atevi* and brought to safety at Alpha, are now desperate with fear.
Bren Cameron—brilliant human emissary of Tabini-aiji, the powerful *atevi* political leader on the mainland below, and also the appointee of the human president of the island nation of Mospheira—is the obvious choice of representative to be sent up to deal with both the panicked refugees and the incoming alien ship.
As a member of the spacefaring delegation who rescued the refugees, Bren has talked to *kyo* before—and even won their trust by saving one of their kind from a Reunioner prison. Because of his remarkable diplomatic and linguistic abilities, Bren managed to communicate with that grateful *kyo* individual on a limited basis, and he has evidence that that same *kyo* is on the ship heading to defenseless Alpha Station.
But no one can predict what an alien race might do, or what their motivations could be.
And Bren Cameron, the only human ever to be accepted into *atevi* society, is now the one individual with a hope of successfully interacting with the crew of the incoming ship. But Bren knows it will take putting himself in the hands of the *kyo*.
Can Bren count on the gratitude of one individual alien to save his life and the lives of thousands on Alpha Station?
