    Mark of the Remaker

    Hugo Ari grew up in the shadow of his late father, a Remaker named Wayland. All Hugo knew about his father was his heroic role in the Hundred-Year Void War.

    When enemy Techan forces attack Hugo’s hometown of Bringer, Hugo must find the courage to defend his father’s legacy. As Bringer burns, Hugo discovers a secret about his past . . . and the possible key to his people’s survival.

    Accompanied by a fellow band of Bringer survivors, Hugo retreats to a hidden hollow deep in the Gündrif Mountains. As Techan soldiers advance perilously closer, Hugo races to uncover the meaning behind his glowing red birthmark…

    Meanwhile, in the Techan capital of Rowan, General Analah Crescent is assembling a force of powerful warships and state-of-the-art sky stingers. Her orders are to capture Hugo at any cost. The emperor of the Techan Empire, a fallen Remaker named Rubin, will stop at nothing to expand his power and crush any movement to overthrow his reign—no matter if it means betraying his people once again.

    Can the Dwarves, Elves, Reptilians, and other races unite in time to save the world of Mythra? Or are Hugo and his fellow Bringer warriors doomed to repeat the mistakes of Wayland’s generation?

    A thrilling Heroic Fantasy, book one of Ian Yamagata’s debut series takes us into a new, unforgettable world, where enemies are not always what they seem . . .

    The Dark Lake

    Something is wrong with Jane.

    It's not that she still lives with her parents in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, although she's well into her thirties. It's not that she can't keep a job, stay sober, or function as an independent adult. It's something else. Something she can't quite remember.

    There was a party. And a car. And the lake.

    The story unfolds in a fictional nation located in the Horn of Africa. Taking the reader on a journey through the intrigue and clashes as two contrasting worlds meet.
    The key to this battle and what ultimately brings the countries to the brink of war is the new naval base that Russia is about to construct in the young African nation as part of Litchfield's natural resources deal. To counter the re-emergence of the new look Russia, the new director of the CIA manipulates his President to effect a regime change in the country by backing an ambitious Interior Minister who is the chief antagonist in his coup attempt. To stop this Litchfield and his team broker a deal between the two powers "below the line" to stop them going to war. At the end of the book although he is successful as the two nations avoid going to war it is the loved ones of Thomas who ultimately pay the highest price.
    Neither good nor evil; Litchfield is a survivor who adapts to the situation around him: The two key impact characters that influence the Litchfield character are: his true love a former beautiful young prostitute from Turkmenistan that he saves one night and his bodyguard who tries to act as the voice of reason in his life, but fails. The book's overall premise is. "Blood is always thicker than water," and despite trying what may Litchfield and the villain and those around them can never escape their pasts and with the underlying theme of "Life doesn't always bring everybody who commits a crime to justice" and there always has to be a "Scapegoat" when the Bear meets the Eagle in the field of battle.
