When stranded on the fringe of a crumbling Empire, how do you defend what really matters? The nomads of the southern deserts have a saying: “When something is broken it should never be discarded. So long as the pieces remains, the whole can be remade.” A time of trials, war and terror is coming to the desert city of M’Dahz, the Empire’s southernmost outpost. As Imperial power falters, then withdraws, the population lives in constant fear of invasion by vicious Pelasian satraps. Meanwhile, brothers Samir and Ghassan, and their childhood friend Asima, are about to discover that while people can change the world, the world can also change people. They must follow separate paths – as courtesan, naval officer, and pirate – yet their destinies are forever intertwined. Nothing is ever as it seems in this distant corner of the Empire, and a world of unexpected alliances, dangerous jealousies and deepest betrayals awaits them... The third book in S.J.A. Turney’s Tales of the Empire series, Dark Empress is a heart-stopping journey by land and sea through a world of deception, scheming, and surprising valour. Reminiscent of C. S. Forester, Simon Scarrow, and Conn Iggulden, this is historical fantasy at its most readable, its enlightening and exciting best.

Long ago, the Ereb of planet Athena discovered the mysterious GodSphere. Its energy was enough to power all of Athena and grant elemental abilities. Fueled by their desire to expand, Ereb legions invaded a world populated by the primitive Dr'og, but without their connection to the GodSphere, the Ereb were forced to recreate it. In their attempt, their forces were destroyed, leaving the unfinished tech in Dr'og hands. Meanwhile, back on Earth, the Roman Empire-which never fell but instead continued to thrive-spent years expanding across the globe. Their forces became stronger and their leaders more brutal until all of Earth fell to Rome's knees. Unsatisfied with world domination, the empire sent legions to Athena, where the weakened Ereb were forced underground, their GodSphere lost forever. Now, hundreds of years later, Athena's Roman emperor Thaddeus Claudius reigns. He and his daughter, Augustine, are the last of their bloodline, and Augustine, the victim of her father's games, has become little more than a tool in his belt. Amid power struggles and an alien intervention, Athena is caught off guard when the vengeful Dr'og appear. In this dark world of sex, death, and conspiracy, how far will Augustine go to survive?

"Dark Descent makes the reader a vicarious participant in what is a very extreme sport."—Philadelphia Inquirer On May 29, 1914, the passenger liner Empress of Ireland was struck by the freighter Storstad and sank in fifteen minutes, taking more than 1,000 victims with her. It remains one of the largest losses of life ever in a maritime accident. At more than a hundred feet deep in the frigid Gulf of St. Lawrence, diving the Empress is like trying to navigate an unfamiliar sixty-story building lying on its side at a forty-five-degree angle, in pitch blackness with only a flashlight. In Dark Descent, Kevin McMurray takes us deep into the bowels of the lost ship, first to relive her tragic death and then to join the divers who have probed the wreck's secrets. It's an adventure from which some divers don't return. "Impressively researched. . . . For those who love the lure of the deep water and the mysteries of shipwrecks, this specialized history will be a pleasure."—Publishers Weekly "Kevin has a remarkable knack of adding life and realism. A great job."—R. W. Hamilton, Chairman of the Board, Divers Alert Network

Following a tragic accident, Eric Hawthorne is catapulted into a fantastic realm where time slides sideways and where a world of shadows determines the fate of mankind. This is a place where man and monsters, angels and demons, deities and demigods fight for supremacy -- and where the fate of a newborn child can hang in the balance and decide the difference between restoration of the galaxy or its imprisonment forever. In this realm, Eric discovers that he is a clone, a Pariah that is a fail-safe contingency following a paradox matrix equation. In this equation it becomes necessary for Eric to be acquired to near-godhood status where he can be in two places at one time -- find, confront, and defeat an alternate-self, a darker personae bent on world-domination, and stop a demigoddess, a collector of worlds, from wiping out the lineage that conceived the Pariah.
