A quiet little mountain town is hiding a big problem. When the townsfolk of Raven's Peak start acting crazy, Abigail Dressler is called upon to find out what is happening. She uncovers a demonic threat unlike any she's ever faced and finds herself in a fight just to stay alive.
She rescues Haatim Arison from a terrifying fate and discovers that he has a family legacy in the supernatural that he knows nothing about. Now she's forced to protect him, which is easy, and also trust him if she wants to save the townsfolk of Raven's Peak. Trust, however, is considerably more difficult for someone who grew up living on the knife's edge of danger.
Can they discover the cause of the town's insanity and put a stop to it before it is too late?

A Galactic Space Opera, Graveyard of Empires builds the world and sets the stage for an enormous conflict between planets and Empires.

The threat of death, and worse, loomed over him because of his special gifts.
When he tries to protect his daughter from this fate by hiding her, his worst fears are realized as the Ministry begins tightening the noose. If they discover that she is his child, or worse that he kept her from them, both of their lives will be at risk.
Meanwhile, the galaxy is facing a new conflict in the outer reaches. A new rebellion is forming to tear down the established government. Battle lines are being drawn and everyone is choosing sides. But, they are all going to find out that the cost of war is higher than anyone could have anticipated...

This is a collection of stories by Lincoln Cole written throughout his life. Some of it was written while he was still developing his style, and some of the stories are attempts at different genres and branching out to try something new. It is a compilation of many works submitted to magazines or services throughout the years.
The first story is a visionary world with steampunk themes, corporations battling under cover of darkness to try and run the streets. Later in the collection there is a dystopian future where the remaining few have to choose who lives and who dies as the Earth becomes unable to support life. Another work satirizes modern technology and how easy it is to get control of hacking technology.
Throughout the collection some of the works are from Lincoln Cole beginning his journey as a writer putting words to paper.
