Anthony was a painter until he lost the ability to see color. Worse than color blindness, the edges of objects and people blur together, making it almost impossible for Anthony to interact with anyone or anything. After retreating from the world for decades, he sees a glimpse of yellow that leads him to a musician, Teague.
At first Anthony is frightened and overwhelmed by the color, but he can’t stay away from Teague for long. He finds the courage to confront Teague and explain his unusual problem and Teague’s role in helping him. To Anthony’s relief, Teague believes him. Very quickly, they both realize that getting colors back may be more important to Anthony than his relationship with Teague. If Anthony pushes too hard, he’ll lose Teague, and possibly the colors, forever.

Larik rides for the Zathinian cavalry, and he's happy to lead his men against the Kipzian threat. But during a fateful battle, he's lost, trapped with his enemy and forced to stay with the Kipzian man in their city, sealed from the rest of the world.
With a sickening truth staring at him, Larik doesn't know what to think. He focuses on the one thing he can: Gidid, the man who saved him. Because faced with a new reality, his feelings are the one thing he has some control over. But even that could be torn away by the conflict, leaving him alone.
And possibly dead.

What do a biker, a drunk dwarf, a half-elven thief, a wizard and god of insanity have in common? More than a person would think. John Arrowsmith, a lost biker who managed to fall through a liminal between two worlds to land of Dargoth, has reached the City of the White Palace, but his adventure is far from over. The palace has risen, and a number of delegates from all over the land have come to speak with the Wizard-King. Strange happenings give rise to concern, and old enemies are rising from the grave to darken the land once more. Complications, both big and small, combine in a tangled and threatening plot, and only the gods themselves know what is happening. But the gods are not speaking, and when Arrowsmith finally decides (with a little prodding) to ask them, he encounters something that only adds to the tangle. Recovering now from a violent attack by the god of madness, it becomes clear that he and his friends and half-elven lover Infamous are going to have to fight subterfuge with subterfuge. Which begs the question – where exactly does one find a five foot ten inch albino virgin prince…?
