Suyana is the last caretaker of the Celestial Archive.

Years ago, the archivists ventured into its depths, and Suyana was chosen to keep watch while they sought greater secrets about the night sky. They promised her they would return, and all would be well. But as more and more time passes, Suyana is forced to deal with a crumbling Archive and curious outsiders all alone.

She clings to the hope that they will return, and that together they will make the Archive better than it had ever been. But when a new visitor arrives at the nearby town, asking far too many questions, Suyana has to ask herself: is she really willing to wait for the archivists' return forever?

Does leaving it all behind mean giving up on hope, or does it mean rising to meet a new one?

Majoring in Ancient Civilizations, my entire mindset was geared toward facts, not fiction.

I wanted to find answers and provide proof of things, not just believe in mythology and ghost stories. That’s why I was more than willing to drag my three best friends into a forest we knew little about in search of a lost city. While stories were great, finding the actual location was better.

Setting out, my best friend Ashlynn and I were confident, knowing we were protected by our best male friends, Phynix and Case. That quickly turned to fear when we ended up lost. Too soon, we found ourselves stalked by a ghostly figure— herded and trapped without any idea of escaping.

Everything was a mess until the forest provided a means to calm us, to relieve us of our fears and inhibitions— and then realizations came forward that tilted the world the four of us knew on its axis and opened a future we never knew we desperately wanted.

One where we loved each other, all four of us, and lived in that truth forever.

There was only one catch from the ghostly figure, and it turned out to be one that I would willingly follow . . . but it required all of us to agree. Otherwise, we’d lose everything.

It's been five years since Barridur Sharrow deserted the army rather than commit war crimes at the order of his commander. He now works as a mason, he's well-liked by his community where no one knows his past, and he focuses his time on raising his adopted child. But everything falls apart when his former commanding officer, the Grand Mage, returns to the city and discovers him — and shortly after that, Barridur is executed as a deserter.

Barridur finds himself in purgatory where he meets the fabled Hollow King. A cruel and capricious god, the Hollow King offers Barridur a chance to return alive to the living world.

All Barridur has to do is defeat the Nine Champions of Hell. An immortal minotaur, a shapeshifting crow with a flock of man-eating ravens, a banshee who lives in a well, a flesh-eating swarm of flies, a cannibalistic chef, an enchanted stone giantess, an unstoppable rock troll, a huge two-headed hound who guards the Gates, and a final unknown entity no one has lived to tell about. How hard can it be, really? All he has to do is beat them all and survive. If he fails, the Hollow King will devour his soul and Barridur will become part of the wraith army, enslaved for all eternity.

If staying alive in Hell wasn't hard enough, Barridur discovers that the Grand Mage who murdered him is intent on summoning the Hollow King as a weapon of mass destruction. Millions will die if this comes to pass — including Barridur's family. Desperate to win this impossible challenge, Barridur sets with only a lone vampyr as his ally... and honestly she just wants to drink his blood.

No matter what it costs, Barridur will fight all of Hell to keep the Hollow King from rising into the mortal world — even if it means losing his humanity in the process. No pressure.

Even death can’t stop the sun from rising.

Tamran Westmiller was just delivering a package. He hadn’t signed up for any fighting. He was retired. But one wrong step toward a town that definitely didn’t exist last week puts him right at the center of a magical vortex, safe only by the grace of the equally-trapped sun demigod, Ashara.

He finds her temple ravaged by a rival now poised to devour her entirely. She doesn’t have the strength to turn back time on his attack, and Tamran’s mortal body can’t survive in the corrosive magic-storm. Alone, they’re stuck. But together, they just might have a chance to escape - through the light-sanctified souls of her champions.

If Tamran can reactivate her shrines using the avatars of those timeworn heroes, they can carve a path through the void to Ashara’s heart. Hordes of their foes swarm the temple grounds, turning every bungled route into a brutal end. When he falls, she can turn back the clock, but it makes their plan no less deadly.

The only way out is forward, though, so in Tamran goes - as many times as it takes.
