In 1970s New York City, all Carey wants to do is drink cheap beer and dispense ass-kickings. He doesn t care about the rumors of tarmonsters in the sewers, or unkillable psychopaths invading the punk scene, that is until strange kids with unnoticeable faces start abducting his friends.
In present-day Hollywood, stuntwoman/waitress Kaitlyn is trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life when an angel appears outside her apartment, a former teen heartthrob tries to eat her and her best friend goes missing.
There are angels. There are demons. They are the same thing. It’s up to Carey and Kaitlyn to stop them. The survival of the human race is in their hands.
We are well and truly screwed.

The ice planet Algeron may be cold, but it offers an oasis of safety for the Confederacy at a time of shifting alliances and conflict in the galaxy. The natives, however, are not so happy about the Confederation’s presence on their planet, for this brings the threat of the dreaded Ramanthians to their doorstep.
Meanwhile, General Booly has received news that will change everything; at the heart of a Ramanthian fortress lies the key to a game-changing interstellar communication technology. The military importance of stealing this technology is immediately obvious, as well as the ideal man who is fit to lead the Legion of the Damned on this vital mission: Lieutenant Santana.

The Empress Game Trilogy
1
Power, grace, deadliness defined. Always cunning, endlessly victorious…
One seat on the intergalactic Sakien Empire’s supreme ruling body, the Council of Seven, remains unfilled: that of the Empress Apparent. The seat isn’t won by votes or marriage. It’s won in a tournament of ritualized combat. Now the tournament, the Empress Game, has been called and the women of the empire will stop at nothing to secure political domination for their homeworlds.
Kayla Reunimon, a supreme fighter, is called by a mysterious stranger to battle it out in the arena. The battle for political power isn’t contained by the tournament’s ring, however. The empire’s elite gather to forge, strengthen or betray alliances in a dance that will determine the fate of the empire for a generation. With the empire wracked by a rising nanovirus plague and stretched thin by an ill-advised planet-wide occupation of Ordoch in enemy territory, everything rests on the woman who rises to the top.
“Mason delivers an old fashioned space opera passion, politics, and the fate of Empires hanging on the strength and courage of a single woman. You’ll want to reach immediately for book two”. Tanya Huff, author of a Confederation of Valor
“Fast, smart, complex, and fun as hell… one of the best books I’ve read this year. A near-perfect blend of romance, action, and interstellar politics in a well-thought-out and original universe, with a tough-as-nails heroine you can’t help but root for.” Rachel Bach, author of Fortune’s Pawn
