Universal book link (find it anywhere available) https://books2read.com/u/bpW7Kg

Exiled to a barren world with only a human for company, the immortal Pietas demands the mortal serve him. When Six refuses and insists they are equals, Pietas is outraged. How dare a mortal refuse anything he requests?

But when he needs Six’s support to find and join his people, Pietas must learn to humble himself and ask for help–politely– and even more outrageous–request forgiveness. From a humanFor without aid, the immortal king might spend an eternity alone, never finding the people he has already died over a thousand times to save…

Forged in Fire Excerpt

In this scene from Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire, the not-quite-human Six offers water to the immortal king, Pietas.

Six slid their canteen off over his head and held it out to Pietas.

Accepting anything from a human, an altered one at that, had violated every instinct at first. To take from an enemy, yes. Always. Let one give you something as if you needed it? Admit a weakness before an enemy?

Never.

But this was Six.

Pietas took it.

Ultras could go days without water, but they consumed it when they had it. He wiped one dusty hand across his mouth. The satisfaction of assuaged thirst never failed to please. What simple things in life brought pleasure! In captivity, he’d dreamed of even a drop to cool his tongue. He’d sworn he’d never take water for granted again.

Six had offered it to their companions during the climb, but the entire lot refused anything a mortal’s lips had touched. Yes, Six was a quasi-immortal. A dead human soldier who’d been resurrected and enhanced with Ultra blood. A “ghost.” But to the others, that gave him even less status.

Pietas wavered on few things, but on this? Should he call the man human, mortal, quasi-immortal, or ghost? He’d elected to choose as the mood struck. But one in particular annoyed Six.

“Thanks, ghost.” He thrust the canteen against Six’s chest.

Staggering, he swore in Spanish. “Find another name for me.”

“Tell me your mortal name then.”

“You know I can’t.” Six scratched his cheek. “Gotta protect my family. If your kind knew who they were, they’d slaughter them. You wouldn’t, but them?”

Now they were getting somewhere. “So you do trust me?”

“Pi, there’s more honor in your left big toe than your entire race combined.” He tipped up the canteen but then paused. “No offense.”

“None taken. But we’re stranded, my friend. Unless a miracle happens, by the time we get off this world, your family will be long dead.” He added, “No offense.”

Six finished his drink and plugged the canteen. “None taken. Sorry. Can’t do it.” He lifted the strap back over his head and settled it onto his shoulder, the canteen at his back. “Seriously, Pi, your people hear you call me you-know-what, it’ll give away I was Ghost Corps. We both know what they’ll do to me.”

When you can make yourself invisible, you reveal invisible truth...


Bro, the Antonello Brothers Prequel by Kayelle Allen

Click to open this image full size

Senth Antonello had attended classes at the Thieves' Guild Academy every day since he was what? Three? Yet the looming entrance to the exclusive Advanced Level access that he'd more than earned stood empty, while he skulked in the shadows like he hadn't.

Plunging through that door always felt like he was flying into a beehive while sporting hornet wings.

Enough of this.

He ought to zip up there and let idBot scan him.

He took two decisive steps forward, then pivoted and took five steps back.

"Come on, Senth," he berated himself. "Go for it. Now." He turned around and faced the entrance. "This time will be different. You can do this. Just go in there."

But did he?

No.

And why was that?

Because there were times being the best got you nothing but hated and looking like a kid got you nothing but disrespect. Being the adopted son of a former grand master had distinct perks, true. It got him in ahead of others, but then that was part of the problem, wasn't it?

Daddy had clout. Daddy belonged. People feared Daddy, for good reason.

Nobody feared a clawless halfbreed who looked twelve when he was eighteen.

"I will do this. The time to act is now." He stepped up and let the automated idBot system scan him.

"Welcome, Blue Shadow," idBot's smooth robotic voice cooed. "Cleared for Advanced Level." The door unsealed.

Why couldn't people treat him like that machine? Senth released the tension in his shoulders, and rolled his head to soothe his neck.

Maybe today would be different.

Maybe undergrads would respect him for his level.

Maybe his dad would ask him how he was doing instead of going behind his back to the Grand Master.

Maybe nobody'd meow when he entered the room.

Maybe nobody'd go, "Here, kitty, kitty!"

Oh, and maybe the Empress would eliminate taxes, and while she was at it, free all the slaves. Because, sure. That could happen.

Inside, down the first hallway, monolithic carved wooden doors of the Great Hall stood open. The pickup line for upgraded cloaks wound down the stairs and then back and forth across the cavernous hall like one of those rides at Planet Fun.

Voices. Noise. Din. A hive of thieves anxious to score.

No sound suppression in the empire could mute the hum careening off these stone walls. Not today. Not with the first cloak upgrade in ten years minutes from release.

He took one last, sole-dragging step, entered the hall, and made straight for the grand staircase.

The entire queue of lower-level thieves craned their necks at whoever had entered. Their low buzz faded from front to back, and what do you know? Right on cue, a chorus of meows rose from the anonymous safety of the back row.

Senth halted and snapped his head in that direction, but the sound cut off.

No one in view so much as cracked a smile.

He tossed them a lazy salute and turned back toward the stairs. The conversational drone kicked right back in. After all, no one important had entered. Just the halfbreed.

Prequel to the Antonello Brothers Series

Meet the Bro Characters

Senth Antonello: Fun-loving. Half-human half-feline humanoid. Professional thief. What determines whether Senth can open a lock? One thing: If it's in reach.

Khyff Antonello: Hope-less. Human. Professional pleasure-giver caught in a soul-crushing predicament. What drives him? His freedom, just out of reach -- and the desire for revenge on the one responsible for his slavery; the brother he thought died at birth.

Luc Saint-Cyr: Power-magnet. Human-ish. Adoptive father of Senth. The empire calls him The Man, ruler of a thousand questionable ventures with enough power and wealth to buy a planet. What Luc wants? To protect the only person he's ever considered family.

Once these brothers meet, the Tarthian Empire will never be the same. Neither will the man who brings them together.

Bro has adult themes but NO graphic or explicit content.
