BOOK ONE: HUNTING THE FIVE
It's a side of the southwest never glimpsed by mortal man--a heartless, barren outback riddled with ruthless demons. In its ignorance, humanity is powerless to stop these escapees from Hell and the havoc they create with their dark magic.
Good thing De la Roca isn't human.
A gunslinger with no memories of her previous life, she has fought for the last three hundred years on the forefront of a supernatural war, relying only on her wits, her reflexes, and her own demonic powers--all to pay for her own release from Hell.
The angels wouldn't send her in alone and unarmed, though; Alsvior, her gifted--if contrary--steed, and Bluot, a legendary revolver with an unquenchable blood-lust, have been with her every step of the way--along with a series of terrible nightmares that might hold the keys to her past.
Then, an angel appears with a bargain that seems to good to be true--five final targets, and she is free from her penance.
Quickly, she discovers that her old methods are not up to the task, and she's forced to team up with a mysterious gatekeeper and another mercenary--both of which need her for their own plans. With time running out, she has to figure out who to trust and who to kill, and fast, before she's demon-food.
BOOK TWO: HONOR IN HELL
Can anyone be trusted?
Betrayed by both Laufeyson and the Mademoiselle, and sent on a quest by an angel that might actually be her enemy, the demon mercenary De la Roca bolts into Hell with murder in her heart.
Her simple mission for revenge quickly spirals out of control. Between the Consortium of power-hungry angels, the serpentine Oracle, a strangely absent God, and the knowledge that her mount just happens to be a man under a curse, just about everyone around her has a secret--and most of them are trying to get her killed.
Unless, of course, she can kill them first.
BOOK THREE: SEVEN SACRIFICES
After a string of tricks and lies, De la Roca, Laufeyson, and Alsvior have no love or trust lost between them--but their escape from Hell and the Pentarchian Golden's grasp has stranded them on an off-world. Stripped of their powers and plunged into danger from this land's native inhabitants, they are forced to rely on each other in their search for a mysterious Gray God that may or may not be their own creator.
In Hell, Golden's obsession with De la Roca is devolving into madness, a development that alarms Anann, his second in command--especially as she can sense that the warrior Macha seeks revenge for her dead lover, and that his instability might threaten her own bid for power--a power that other angels are hungry for.
It's a race against the clock that pits demon against angel in the thrilling conclusion to the De la Roca Chronicles.

On a routine mission in Iran something goes catastrophically wrong. Bugs are beginning to appear in Sophia's programming and the mission spins out of control.

Can you see the story breathing?
A mountain so great it takes a year to travel from base to summit
A sun so powerful it drives you into madness if you look at it
An ascent so vital it determines the fate of the world
A summit so precious it holds the key to the divine
The world of the great Mountain is unstable. Giant pillars erupt from the surface and yawning chasms form unpredictably underfoot. Since the Maelir first stood on its slopes in the distant past, they have sought to still its anger and control its power. Each year, twin brothers are chosen to make a perilous journey to the summit. If they survive they will be witness to Zenith, and the secrets will be revealed to them.
When Atreu and Teyth embark on their Ascent, their Talismans lead them onto conflicting paths that will ultimately set brother against brother. And this time the Ascent itself is in peril as unknown forces that have long craved the power of Zenith will stop at nothing to make it their own … even if it means destroying the very thing that sustains all life – the Mountain itself.
Like so many men, Jerrod Beams is a cog. A well-paid and fairly contented cog, to be sure, but a cog nonetheless. He lives the nightmare life of the blandly comfortable, where his quiet desperation is silent even to his own ears. Every day, he commutes from his nice house to his good job and knocks off another of the 14,000 workdays of a federal career. Two mindless hours on the road every day, unrelieved by nine mindless intervening hours in his cubicle. It isn’t painful, this life as an indentured servant. No, the insidious nature of the bargain he has struck is that he will feel no overt pain, just vague uneasiness, a feeling that something he has missed is slipping away.
He has everything he is supposed to have. He does everything he is supposed to do. And he loves everyone he is supposed to love.
Shouldn’t I be happy? he thinks.
Jerrod sleepwalks through his suburban existence until he stumbles upon Timothy Ferriss’s The 4-Hour Work Week, an entrepreneurial self-help book that forces him to examine his life. He realizes to his horror that not only is he miserable, but he cannot define his dream life. He just knows he needs Out! Join this cubical-dwelling wage-slave as he awakes from the nightmare of suburban conformity, escapes 9-to-5, and discovers his true calling.
The Sacred Paths are closing. For thousands of years the Ancients have held them open, veiling them from some, exposing them to others. The Tarot is the guide, but only few ever realize that the twenty two Major Arcana are more than just pictures and information. Real entities protect these ways of wisdom; real wizards walk the dimensions, teaching, revealing. But there are those who would see the paths closed and mankind enslaved; the times are more dangerous than ever. Still the initiates, the fools, must walk the paths and feel their influence; it is the only hope for mankind.
Clay and Ariel must deal with the Ancients as they fight to keep the sacred paths from being destroyed. The spiritual wisdom of the paths is being choked away and the usually wise ancients find they are no longer able to tap into the wisdom that has guided their paths for generations. They need Ariel and Clay to engage the paths so that their destinies will reveal the one who is trying to destroy them. But Ariel never wanted anything to do with magic or the Ancients, and Clay is a wild card that may have mysterious ties with the dark ‘Other’, one who wields a source of power the Ancients have never seen, a force that could destroy them all

Gothic outcast Natalie Sugarman bartered her soul for her dying mother’s life sixteen years ago to a boy demon that could stop time. Now, days before her twenty-first birthday, the lifelines on her palms are slowly vanishing, and she knows it’s just a matter of time before Satan’s little helper collects.
Natalie's tried numerous times to kill the demon and regain control of her soul’s destiny, but she always falls short. When she decides to try and gain the element of surprise for her next attempt, Natalie seeks answers about his location from a freaky, glowing-eyed fortuneteller. Creeped out by the psychic’s methods, she bolts from the reading and misses the warning that the demon who stole her soul is always closer than she thinks.

Natalie must figure out how to win her soul back from the demon before her lifeline completely disappears and she becomes his forever—even if that means making a deal to damn three other souls to take her place.
