Deus Hex Machina is the story of Isidore RAM, a hacker working as a sister for the the Church of Technology and a mysterious code fragment that leads her from the GRID into the real world of a dystopic cyberpunk Orange County as she searches for the truth behind the death of her mentor. Along the way she connects with a mech riding gang leader who is more interested in selling the artifacts Isidore is looking for than studying them. Together they must answer the most important question of their lives: What is Cri-Lux?
A reluctant princess. A farm girl sharing memories with her dead twin. A predestined orphan. Together they must stop the usurper or perish.
Betrayal has come to Shadowhaven, and a power mad wizard has overthrown the kingdom, bent on capturing their store of magic hidden beneath the castle. The royal guard have been sent off on a mysterious mission. Without their trusted warriors to protect them, the kingdom falls overnight. The queen is dead, and the king and princess have fled for their lives. Now only terror reigns over this once peaceful land.
But the royal guard are coming back, and there are rumors that the king and princess aren’t dead, just merely in hiding. Can the captain of the guard find the king and restore the royal family to their place? Can a princess living in secret truly rise up and grab hold of her destiny, or will she hide from who she is if it means the destruction of countless lives? How are the royal family connected to this land, and to the well of power hidden deep beneath Illuminata Castle?
