By the year 2225, humans have come a long way. Broadening Earth’s frontiers into the galaxy means taking a crash course in inter-alien relations, and humans are – mostly – embracing their new allies.
The Fenrir are Viking descendants of the Great Wolf of Norse myth – heroes and heroines from across the galaxy who have returned to Earth to help keep our planet safe.
A physicist and an assassin, a spy and a mechanic, an old soldier and a weaver, a general and an interpreter – fall in love and run into danger with all of them as they face down an enemy threat that could plunge the Earth back into a war to end everything.

A Wolf to Watch Over Me
Lauren Ivers should be home, reading and eating take-out. Or in her lab, working on new ideas in post-quantum theory. Instead, she’s on the run with the bodyguard she didn’t know she had in a desperate bid to get off-planet before she becomes a casualty in an intergalactic war. She’s sure it’s just the adrenaline that has her reacting to her oversized protector with smart-mouthed replies and a full-bodied zing she wills herself to ignore.
Hakon sidUlfr, a wolf-shifter from another world, and Lauren’s covert bodyguard, is determined to keep her safe from the Axis aliens hunting her. Not because she’s a duty, but because there’s something about her that calls to all his primitive and protective instincts. It’s a distraction he can’t afford as he works to sneak a single, small human across unfamiliar terrain.
When Hakon is injured, Lauren realizes that while he was protecting her body, she should have been protecting her heart.

A Most Wanted Wolf
You can’t trust a spy. That’s the nature of their job. As a warrior, Ule tärEinar prefers direct action to sneaking around. Yet when she meets Andrew Wyatt, she can’t deny that sparks fly.
Andrew’s assignment is to steal back the human scientist who was about to become a Fenrir mate. He doesn’t count on the woman who meets him eye to eye, challenging everything he ever knew about alien relations.
As the cold war between their two cultures heats up, Ule is going to have to learn how to trust the man who could destroy her world with just one lie.

Silver Wolf Rising
Dagny tärEinar is on her way to Earth to start her new life. Not that she knows what that’ll be like – a long-time widow with grown children, she hardly knows who she is anymore.
Being forced into retirement is turning him bitter. Niall sidKalvr knows it, but he can’t help it, either. He’s ending his long career in the Fenrir Army to become a farmer, of all things.
Neither of them expect to be saviors, the leaders of a small rebellion. But when enemy soldiers invade their pack ship, Niall and Dagny are forced to work together to protect and care for their shipmates and themselves, despite the distracting life-scent trying to draw them together. A scent that indicates they’re meant to be together for the rest of their lives. However long – or short – that may be.

The Wolf Who Came In From the Cold
Rig sidUlfr wants peace on Earth.
As the general in command of the Fenrir troops on Earth, his mission is to maintain the security of the planet in the aftermath of an intergalactic war. And if alien Axis terrorists would quit putting his new, distractingly attractive interpreter in the line of fire, that would be great.
Mirea Randolph may speak half a dozen languages, but words won't be enough to keep her and Rig safe. It seems like every time she gets her red lipstick on him, another attack occurs. With constant attempts to derail the fragile peace process, she ends up involved in layers of deception she won't be able to talk her way out of in any language.
Their attraction burns laser hot as they work to keep Earth safe from a new wave of enemy invasions. But once the job is done, will Rig have to go back into the cold alone, or will Mirea keep him warm?

All of these stories have been previously published and are also available as single titles.


In the far future we encounter Fenrir’s Wolves living on another planet – and helping Earth against their enemies.

Note that all the Wolves (Male/Female) are warriors.

A rather different version of what happened to Fenrir and his wife and the future….

A nice set of stories.

The cyborgs started out as human, people with lives, love and family. Then their country changed them. Made them in to something different and wiped their past. But they can't take away how they feel. In C791, Joe starts a revolution and brings his people together to find answers. What he finds instead is love. Poor F814 thought herself a robot, defective and unique among her kind, until a cyborg teaches her how to live again. When a geeky cyborg meets B785, a robotic princess, circuit boards sizzle.

I never finished book 1! I got 25% through where there was an interesting twist but not sufficient to keep me reading. When I realised that there would be nothing more that ultra alpha males and fighting and….

And they fight for Charlotte

In a far future, a fleet of ships hurtles through space on its way to a distant war. Aboard the ships is an army of artificial human soldiers, highly trained and dangerous. Doctor Charlotte West, the neuro-technologist responsible for the soldiers’ artificial brains, travels in the support fleet. Two months before the arrival at the war site, the soldiers start fighting each other and disobeying commands. When they are brought in for tests, Charlotte finds that all seven thousand men share a pathological obsession with her.

In this novella we encounter an army of clone warriors. The ultimate warrior it would seem. And Charlotte has them all under her spell – and it would seem in her bed too…

Clones it would appear are emotionally linked as well looking alike. So copying cells and DNA must also have an effect on their minds.

Where does reality end?

Shadow Memories Book Cover Shadow Memories
Nicholas Erik

When private investigators Kurt Desmond and Cassie Atwood find 10,000-year-old cave paintings hinting at human civilization’s shocking origins, they're immediately thrust into the middle of a millennia-old conspiracy. But these secrets aren’t meant for their eyes, and as the pair pursue the truth, they discover that exposing the actual story of humanity's origins might also lead to its destruction.

Out of options, and with the walls closing in from all sides, Kurt and Cassie must ally with those who have hidden the truth in order to save the world from those who want to expose it any cost.

So there were these bounty hunters slash PIs - only what they hunted and retrieved generally weren't worth very much - starting with a fish eating dog - who was rejected by its owner once returned...

 And then one of these bounty hunters was an ex-thief which meant that he had a skill worth money to several people. But technically he had reformed and so only took (semi?) legal jobs when flat broke.
 Which he was. So he took the job. Strange though it was.

 A nice clean style of writing. Short chapters written from the ex-con's viewpoint. The atmosphere comes through clearly with nice expressions.

Compendium: the Conspiracy Continues

Book & Author Details:

The Compendium by Christine Hart
 (The Variant Conspiracy Trilogy, #2)
 Publication date: July 13th 2016
 Genres: New Adult, Romance, Science Fiction


Irina and her renegade variant friends are scrambling to pick up the trail of their former employer, Ivan, and his globally catastrophic scheme. After strategically sharing their story with the media, the group heads south from Vancouver to Seattle hoping to recruit more experienced—and lethal—variants to their cause.

Their attention develops a laser focus on an engineered disaster mere days ahead of them. Ivan is using what staff and resources remain of Innoviro Industries to set off a violent earthquake in San Francisco. While they fight to stop the earthquake, Irina pushes the love of her life Jonah as far away as she can, trying to keep his unstable genetic degradation in check.

Irina’s friends think they’ve seen the worst that Innoviro could bring forth by the time they reach a secret facility in the Mojave Desert. As they near the property, the group uncovers a horror none of them had ever imagined.





Located on BC’s beautiful West Coast, I write from my suburban Burnaby home staring at North Vancouver’s iconic Coast Mountains. I love writing about places and spaces with rich history and visually fascinating elements as a backdrop for the surreal and spectacular.

In addition to my undergraduate degree in writing and literature, my background also includes corporate communications and design. I am a current member of the Federation of BC Writers and SF Canada.

When not writing, I have a habit of breaking stuff and making stuff – in that order – under the guise of my Etsy alter-ego Sleepless Storyteller. I share my eclectic home and lifestyle with my husband, baby daughter and preschool son.

As I got closer to the evergreens, I saw glints of red in the spiky leaves and tiny spindly pods on the branches. Flies buzzed around the plants and I saw one of the pods open like a glistening green mouth. A fly landed inside and the mouth snapped shut. I shuddered as I contemplated the size those little mouths could be if they grew proportionate to the rest of the seedling.

I turned around to the desks in the corner. No longer bare, one was occupied. A balding man sat in front of a computer with his back to me. I walked as quickly as my vision self could manage.

The man typed furiously as I came around the desk to face him. He was older and slightly overweight with a ring of straw blond hair on an otherwise bald head. He looked up at the door behind me and frowned. I turned around to see Tatiana and two men enter. I recognized one of the men from Innoviro, but the other was a stranger. Both wore plain slacks and golf shirts. Tatiana wore her typical pencil skirt, buttoned blouse, and stilettos combination.

The bald man stood to greet Tatiana and his height struck me. The man was tall, even while slouching. In spite of his height, he looked defeated, dominated by the displeased look on Tatiana’s face. She opened her mouth and the scene evaporated. I was back in the dim empty version of the warehouse. I regained my focus to find everyone staring at me intently.

“It was a greenhouse. They were crafting weird plants. And Tatiana showed up. She looked grouchier than usual.” I closed my eyes and rubbed my temples to better concentrate. “The guy sitting at this desk was responsible for the place. I think Tatiana was about to give him hell when my vision ended.”

“Did you learn anything else? See anything else?” asked Ilya, leaning towards me.

“So all we know now is that this was some kind of variant grow show.” Faith swooped her arm at the empty basins.

“Did you see any printed material? Anything with a name or an address?” asked Jonah.

“The guy at the desk had an ID badge clipped to his breast pocket, but I couldn’t make out anything on it,” I said.

“So, have we made any progress at all?” said Cole. He rested his hands firmly on his hips.

As my friends started to argue about the chances of successfully tracking down any Innoviro activity, I opened and closed each of the drawers in the bald man’s desk. I reached the top center drawer and a plastic-sheathed card slid forward. The bald man’s face looked up at me next to bold print, Dr. Kingston, George T.

I picked up the card and the angry voices beside me were silenced. I stood in a lush meadow watching Dr. Kingston survey a small field of bizarre plants. The carnivorous evergreens and their giant mouths loomed over teal blue ferns with pearl flowers. A glass and screen enclosure held large colorful bees that shimmered as though bathed in a slick sheen of gasoline. It looked like an alien planet, surrounded by BC’s steep coastal mountains.

A portable plastic table behind Kingston held specimen jars with plant fragments and a stack of pizza boxes with RIVERSIDE PIZZA HOUSE printed in bright red letters. I moved to step towards Kingston and a hand grabbed my arm, pulling me back to the North Vancouver warehouse.

“What happened? Why did you–,” I stopped.

Jonah lay unconscious on the ground.
