The best thief in the history of the Revived Earth is on a literal deadline—find a cure for the plague or die—but when the universe drops the ultimate extortion fodder into his lap, what’s Jubal supposed to do, say no? Turns out Nick Beausoleil isn’t the perfect Guild knight in shining armor his fiancée thinks he is. Nickie-boy made a big mistake while Carina was in prison, and now he’s got a deep, dark secret he needs Jubal Van Zandt to help him cover up. The kind of deep, dark secret Jubal could use to destroy their relationship and disgrace the overly muscled meathead forever in Carina’s eyes. PRAISE FOR THE JUBAL VAN ZANDT NOVELS: “Every detail is so clever. Every exchange of dialogue is so witty. The overall effect is dazzling, mesmerizing, better than real life. It's literary hard drugs, dude.” –Tim McBain, coauthor of Awake in the Dark and The Scattered and the Dead

The best thief in the history of the Revived Earth is back, and this time it's personal. A deadly plague is ravaging the world's population and threatening to kill the only person Jubal Van Zandt cares about—himself. If he doesn't find a cure soon, he's dead. The most promising lead is buried in the ruins of an ancient sunken city stalked by savage predators, cunning parasites, and the twisted souls of long-dead mages. It would take an army to get Jubal inside ... or just one of the most renowned knights in Guild history. The one Jubal betrayed and left for dead eighteen months ago. First Jubal has to convince her not to kill him. Then he has to convince her to help save him. “Jubal Van Zandt is a terrible person—dark, arrogant, and narcissistic to his soul—yet you also can’t help but love him. And likewise, his story is a dark and often painful thing, but sprinkled with occasional glimpses of hope and maybe even redemption.” –James A. Hunter, Author of the Yancy Lazarus Series and Viridian Gate Online

Jubal Van Zandt & the Revenge of the Bloodslinger

Narcissist, sociopath, and shameless backstabber Jubal Van Zandt is the best damn thief in the history of the Revived Earth...and he won't shut up about it. But not everybody in the swampy, soggy, feudal future approves of Jubal's vocation. The Guild—the religious fanatics who helped rebuild civilization after the collapse—in particular are waiting for their opportunity to slip the noose around his neck. Which is why when the renowned Guild knight Carina Xiao—a.k.a. the Bloodslinger—contacts Jubal about an off-the-books job that violates Guild Law, he's too intrigued to say no. He is the best damn thief in the history of the Revived Earth, after all. Part bizarro ecopunk, part outworld thriller, part odd-couple roadtrip, Jubal Van Zandt & the Revenge of the Bloodslinger is a 150% futurepunk quest for blood and betrayal across the Revived Earth.
