Following the attacks on Vintage City by the Deathtrap Debutantes, life quiets down, and the superheroes are temporarily without work. Unfortunately, unemployed superheroes mean bored superheroes, and with Peter's birthday just around the corner, Eric asks for help in coming up with the most creative gift he can give a boy who's got everything. Tapping into everyone's fondness for computer games, Eric enlists the heroes' help in experimenting with a video game in a desperate bid to amaze Peter with something unique.
What they don't expect is a game that's been sabotaged by an old nemesis. Eric and the heroes suddenly find themselves trapped in a horror game, forced to advance against the clock or be stuck in it forever. With three of their friends vanishing from the group, Eric and Ridley are forced to use their wits and their limited abilities to fight their way through monsters that are meant to keep them from finding the others. Outside, Althea as Spirit Wire, along with unexpected allies, scrambles to keep a delicate connection with her friends as she tries to save them all.

All Bailey wants is to be a good negotiator, and to impress his boss and teacher, the legendary Drew Fletcher. He admires Fletcher for his skills in the field, but that doesn’t stop him admiring the man for other, more romantic reasons as well. In a tense hostage situation, it’s pretty unlikely Bailey’s usual, rash behaviour will cover him in glory, but in his dreams, it’s all going to happen just like in the movies.
When he finally acts to protect his boss, it doesn’t go the way he hopes -- or does it? Will Bailey get to play the hero and get the guy of his dreams?

Matriz de Madre is a cold, unforgiving world, a Catholic orphanage teetering on the precipice of an Appalachian mountain. It is home to a strict sect of nuns and a subjugated collection of boys lorded over by a sadistic Reverend Mother with sinister secrets and perverse desires.
Joseph has one more year to endure before he'll be turned out, one more year to bear the cruel hands of the Reverend Mother. Self-appointed guardian of the other boys, Joseph bravely suffers through abuse while he dreams of freedom, a world far away from Matriz de Madre.
Then Joseph's miserable contentment is rocked by the appearance of Malachi, an aggressive and overtly sexual young man. Equally attracted to and repulsed by the new arrival, Joseph awakens to previously unknown pleasures and confusing emotions. Even in the wake of Malachi's lurid behavior, Joseph finds himself falling in love.
Through the bewilderment of his own burgeoning desires, the Reverend Mother has one last revelation for Joseph, something that might just imprison him forever inside the cold, cruel walls of Matriz de Madre.
