If caught in their forbidden relationship, Thia and Chi could face a death sentence. And when devastating secrets surface from Chi’s past, Thia has to rely on her instincts to make a choice that could save her or destroy her forever.

This novel takes place in two time periods – the mid-20th century and almost 300 years before in a fictional English colony in the new world called Sagadac.
The veteran director Vincent Adair hopes to reinvigorate his career by making a movie about a theological controversy that spread through Sagadac in the 17th century. He involves many other people in his plans, of course, and the odd-numbered chapters of this novel tell about the experiences of some of them – veteran actors, technical people, residents of the town where the filming takes place, and Adair himself.
The even-numbered chapters present the story of the controversy from the viewpoint of one of the participants, who was first a friend and then an adversary of the woman at the center of the story, who believes the colony has turned dry and rigid, so she brings untested ideas that defy the ruling orthodoxy.
Even in darkness, the megalopolis never sleeps.
The internet is gone, engulfed by the virtual flames of an online inferno.
In its place, tawdry tabloids titillate with tales of television talent shows where contestants are literally dying to be famous.
For physicist Dr. Philip Bruno, an unassuming life is about to take a remarkable turn.
From igniting a star in the world’s first successful fusion reactor,
To being hunted by a delinquent prince.
How does a modest man survive stardom?
When an ever-present audience bays for blood,
How does he survive Celebrity Gulag?

Guy Ridley, in his late fifties, runs a second-hand bookstore near an urban university in the American Midwest. He understands academic procedures and might have been a scholar and teacher himself, but now he walks along a parallel road that no academic would take. Devoted to Cervantes’ novel Don Quixote, he writes short stories to express his insights as he struggles with several challenges:
1.He and the wife he still loves have been separated for many years. He’d like them to get back together.
2.He wants to resolve an old scandal that precipitated his wife’s departure from the school’s biology department while others stayed behind and still work mischief.
3.He suffers from intermittent attacks of mental impairment during which he believes that demons assault him. At such times, he imagines that Don Quixote and his sidekick Sancho will rescue him.
Some aspects of his life go well. He likes the way his stories have turned out and would be pleased to know that they’re included in this account of his life. Moreover, several people he’s taken under his wing benefit from his friendship and generosity.
The question is – will he flourish for the first time since the early days of his marriage or will the challenges he deals with bring him down?
