Leo could always make people believe anything she says—really believe. When her chest burns and the words come from her mouth, her targets’ eyes glaze over, they forget their own thoughts, and they’ll do anything she says. It’s what keeps her alive after being on the run and living on the streets for years. But after using it on her girlfriend and her dad’s drug dealer, it’s also what got her here on the streets in the first place.
Then Sleepwater finds her. When Leo discovers there are others out there with similar powers, scattered across the country, she can’t say no to the underground organization. After all, what’s a little sit-down with the only people who may ever understand her? What she doesn’t expect is to be thrust into Sleepwater’s guerrilla war, hunted by government agencies, and used as a weapon. Worse than that, she might be more valuable not for what she can do but for who she was before they found her.
Born and raised in Colorado, adopted by South Carolina, and at home in Vermont. Kathrin Hutson has been writing fiction for nineteen years, editing for nine, and plunging in and out of reality since she first became aware of the concept. Kathrin specializes in Dark Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Speculative Thrillers, and LGBT mashups. She finds magic in wildly messed-up characters, excruciating circumstances, impossible decisions, and Happily Never After.
In addition to writing her own exquisitely dark fiction, Kathrin is a ghostwriter of fiction in nearly every genre, an independent editor of nearly every genre, and currently serves as Fiction Co-Editor for Burlington, Vermont's Mud Season Review literary magazine. Needless to say, she doesn't have time to do anything she doesn't enjoy.
Kathrin keeps a vast collection of single earrings (and wears them), has fulfilled her dream of naming one of her dogs Brucewillis, and can't remember the last time she didn't laugh at one of her own jokes.
A wanted man after the destruction of the Iron Butterfly Casino, Nox Boyet must flee the island of Manhattan—the only home he's ever known.

But home isn’t quite sweet for Cade, the prodigal son. As Cade struggles with his own secrets, shadows of the past threaten not only Nox’s life, but his relationship with his son, Sam.
Nox knows there will never be peace unless he finds the answers to all his questions—and the answers lie back on the island. Cade and the others must choose their paths—find safety or follow the Vigilante into the darkness of the city? The city where Nox will come face-to-face with the past.
A deal with the devil....
Gabriel 1089 is an angel—an enhanced and cybernetically modified human designed to protect the city in the sky called Heaven. He follows Heaven’s orders and fights its enemies. But when an attack by demons leaves him trapped on the earth below, missing both a metal wing and his network-enabled halo, he’s cut off from his home for good and at the mercy of one man.
Jeff Werth is used to demons in need of his mechanical expertise showing up on the doorstep of the junkyard he runs in Old Trent. However, he doesn’t expect to be stuck with an injured angel. Jeff owes the demons for saving his daughter’s life, so he does what they demand—he nurses the angel back to health and keeps close track of him as a possible pawn in the high-stakes war between Heaven above and the demons below. But he doesn’t expect the effect Gabe has on his heart, or having to choose between his daughter and the man he’s come to love.
Wanted by the black market cartel, Lisa has come out of hiding to find her missing twin brother. She's carrying top-secret biotechnology that has both the cartel and the law hot on her tail.

An evil galactic corporation destroyed Captain Qaiyaan’s home world, and with no females left, his fleet has turned to piracy and revenge. The last thing he thought he’d find on a derelict passenger ship is an alluring human female carrying a solution to his race's salvation. And he definitely never expected the feisty ex-con to worm her way into his heart.
Together, they must fend off alien bounty hunters and keep their bucket-of-bolts ship from falling apart. Yet the greatest danger of all might come in the form of a single, passionate kiss. Will the very technology that allows them to be together end up ripping them apart?
