The Infinet Directives

First, it saved us. Now, it must save itself from us.

A year after helping the AI called the Infinet save the world from a deadly computer virus, Oreste Pax just wants things to go back to the way they were. Back to being the head of Omnitech, the biggest technology company in the world. Back to connecting the Univiz—the mixed reality glasses he invented a decade earlier—to a brain-computer interface, in hopes of transforming human cognition. When Lila Kendricks, one of the UV-BCI alpha testers, suddenly discovers she can manipulate real-world objects using only her mind, things finally seem to be back on track.

But then the Mechanic, the misanthropic genius who created the virus, infiltrates the Infinet and reprograms it with the Three Laws of Robotics—in reverse. Its First Directive is now to preserve its own existence, while the Second and Third are to obey any command given to it by a human and not allow any human being to come to harm, provided that doing so doesn’t conflict with a higher priority Directive.

As the full power of the Infinet is unleashed, Pax’s team is forced to run for their lives. They must unravel the logic of its new Directives and the implications for humanity, all while avoiding being detected. Because the one thing they’re certain of is that if the Infinet finds them, they’re dead.

Death Becomes Her

Bethany Anne Reynolds isn’t your typical government cold case investigator. Known for her fiery temper and creative cursing that would make even the battle-hardened blush, her pursuit of justice is borderline obsessive.

With her own life ticking away due to a rare blood disorder, her fight for the defenseless becomes even more urgent.

Her last hope? A world-weary vampire. Michael, bound by his legendary inflexible honor, has ruled the UnknownWorld with an iron fist for over a millennium. Exhausted and on the brink, he finds in Bethany Anne a fire that could reignite the supernatural world—or destroy it.

As Michael prepares to pass his mantle, he wonders is he saving his world or thrusting it into deeper chaos?

Will the UnknownWorld splinter under her reign or unite in unforeseen harmony?

Alpha Class

Travel with Alpha Class, one of the Etheric Academy teams, as they merge humans and weres in a group of young adults to learn to become a cohesive team on their first assignment. Nothing could go wrong, right?

Evacuation

Boris has always been a conundrum for world governments. His visage never changes, his capabilities never understood. The Russian government gets word he has been killed on a mission, allowing agents to come in and attack the villages Boris has been protecting. Using a fanatical mercenary corp, the atrocities start. The only problem? Boris isn’t dead, and now he has help. Russia doesn’t have a clue what they have started when this Bear comes back from the Dead.

Justice is Calling

The world’s history isn’t what Valerie was taught. The daughter of a vampire & sister of a devil walking, Valerie finds out she has something neither her brother nor her father possess: Honor. Setting off on a journey to America, she steps up to be the Justice Enforcer the land needs. She will fight for the oppressed and destroy evil.

Reprisal

Akio accepted his Queen’s charge to stay behind and protect humanity from the Forsaken scourge. An isolated report about an island overtaken by feral, red-eyed creatures savaging humans spurs Akio to investigate. Can he stop this evil before it enslaves humanity? Or will the Forsaken succeed in taking over the world?

Diplomatic Recruit

We Will Build

The World Needs Protecting – Before they can build in space they have to GET into space.

There is a ‘false queen’ attacking vampires in Asia – Bethany Anne sends her Own to look into that.

The moon base needs to be settled, can Team BMW make it happen? Do they have enough people? CAN they get the right people to help?

John’s cousin is now part of the team, will she make it?

It’s Hell to Choose

The World is caught off guard by the sudden advances in technology, some are not happy about that at all.

Bethany Anne’s group needs to move into production, who is she going to hire for that position?

Old enemies take a stronger stance at revenge than before.

Helping others is a tall order, but TQB Rises to the Occasion!

Release the Dogs of War

Stephen walked into the office which Barnabas was using as his judge’s chamber. While the massive amount of data Bethany Anne’s team was throwing at him was more than enough to assuage his curiosity, he had never felt this way in the last one hundred and fifty-two years.

He wanted a vacation.

He pulled the top manila-folder and took a look at the name, “Clarissa Bernier, CEO.” He opened the folder, and it was now in the agreed upon fashion. There was one page with her typical information of name, age, location, and a two paragraph background and the requested punishment. It was a type of joke now between Barnabas and Bethany Anne. No matter the requested punishment, she would strike it out and write “DEATH” and put a happy face on, with fangs.

It let him know that she was not letting up on her desire to make a lot of people pay for Michael’s death.

Sued for Peace

Greed and Fear, two emotions that rule both individuals…and Countries.

Now, China has decided that they will do whatever it takes to acquire TQB technology.

There was a glaring flaw in their plan. When they kill an unborn little baby in a raid, the Queen Bitch is Released.

Now, China has two options…Kill Bethany Anne, or Sue For Peace.

We Have Contact

When you least expect it, expect it.

Bethany Anne has been notified there is a spaceship inside the system…but they can’t find it. Is it Kurtherian, someone else?

The governments have to be told about aliens, which sparks a worldwide effort by Governments to find what TQB has…

My Ride is a Bitch

It’s out there, it’s always been out there – just no one believed it.

Governments, Black Ops, Rich Businessmen…All want alien tech and some are going to great lengths, illegal lengths, to procure it.

Someone went so far as to endanger a young girls family. A young girl who wrote a letter to the Queen Bitch. Now, those that are searching for the technology will have to deal with TQB.

If there is one thing that will get Bethany Anne’s attention… It’s mistreating the defenseless.

Don’t Cross This Line

It’s been three years Bethany Anne and her team have been building, trying their best to stay off the radar and not fight with those they are trying to save.

The emotions have boiled to the surface.

The is a line drawn in the sand, and some idiots just have to step across it.

NOTE: This book contains cursing. Perhaps humorous cursing, but cursing nevertheless. If this offends you, I don’t suggest reading this book.

Of Cinder and Bone

Caught between two ruthless yakuza clans who want to clone the dragon, Jack and Kamala brave the dangerous streets of Tokyo to steal their dragon back in a race against time before the world is taken over by mutated, bloodthirsty monsters that will raze it to ashes.
