Twelve thousand years ago along the Pacific Coast, generations of hunting to feed an expanding population were depleting the Indian's resources. Forests that were once rich in deer and elk, took longer to make the kills needed to feed the tribes.

It started with a shady business proposal I should've turned down. Instead, I flip the terms and change my life forever. Everyone thinks I'll fail, but I'll show them what this woman is capable of.
Throughout the campaign, I make powerful enemies in Washington, which I expect with my honesty and straightforward approach. It's him I'm not prepared for.
Secret Service Agent Trey Benson is arrogant, rude, and, for unknown reasons, absolutely hates me.
To make matters worse, we're stuck on the campaign trail together.

Welcome to Dark River. Population 0.
When Mika McKellen woke up in a stormwater drain while backpacking around Canada, she knew that her mother was right. If you made bad choices, you would end up dead in a ditch. But when she stumbled into Dark River, even her mother could never have dreamed up the residents of this small town in the middle of nowhere, Alberta.
Oh, it had all the usual suspects. Quirky diner owners, untrustworthy outcasts and a Sheriff so hot he'd make any red-blooded woman with a heartbeat beg to be in cuffs in the back of his patrol vehicle. No, the really unusual thing about Dark River was that it was entirely populated by the Undead. Vampires to be specific. And so was Mika.
As Mika adjusts to the life of a Vampire, a dark presence stalks her from the shadows. One of the residents of Dark River was her maker and her murderer.
And they were determined to ensure that Mika never rested in peace.

Old wars were fought in the Aesillian Wastes, wars of sorcery and elemental doom, and it is a doom that lingers still.
For Ceprium Past, an escaped inmate of an imperial prison, the wastes bring more than darkness. Despite being hunted by three imperial knights, Ceprium searches for an end to the memories that plague his dreams, and a way to kill an immortal goddess.
At the heart of this doomed hunt is the Dead Goddess, Tesc. The goddess needs a champion, and while Ceprium Past has proven his will is strong, Taren Chem and the knights of Mirias Deil will not give up their prey so easily.
