Journey to a Dream: An Edgeworld Chronicles Novella
Before he took to the skies in his Den’Lastrian Diamond. Before he met the infamous pirate known only as The Ravyn. Before he became a smuggler, a rogue, an independent trader, Grokhaar Xandria was a lonely boy in a village on the edge of the Gran’Minosta.
When the Elder takes him under his wing, it spurs resentment and jealousy in his peers resulting in a challenge that could change Grokhaar’s future and steal his dreams.
Journey to a Dream is a coming-of-age novella-length prequel to Subject 5691: Petri. Closer to YA science fiction/adventure than romance, it focuses on a young Grokhaar Xandria as he grows from a mocked and ridiculed calf to the promise of the rogue he became.

Book Two in the Edgeworld Chronicles
Of incarceration. Of torture. Of hell.
Sgt. Draxton Larimore knew the punishment for helping Subject 5691 escape Alliance control would be great, but he hadn’t expected it to end with a sale on a Den’Lastrian slave market. Forced to reject the help of the experiment he once saved, Draxton’s sold and shipped off to distant Seshinaar as a gift and a pawn in a lethal game.
Kasseus Minshaar has a secret. It lies in the power coursing through his blood and in the love for his people. A secret his fellow chieftains would kill to suppress.

He knows the inhumanity of slavery and won’t tolerate it in his territory.
As they fight their growing attraction, Draxton and Kasseus unearth a larger plot which threatens to undo all Draxton fought to save and spell the end to Seshinaar forever. Failure isn’t an option when success means a future wrapped in each other’s arms.
