Title: From the Garden of Gods
Author: Sythe
Fandom: Inuyasha/Naruto
Character: Kagome H, Gaara, The Fourth Kazekage, Naruto U
Status: WIP

Summary: In a barren land incapable of sustaining life, a Miko, whose most basic and most principal of powers is to give and nurture life, must seem divine in nature. It's not simple Mokuton, said Sunagakure village elders, Mokuton only affects wood and cannot give life to dead crops. It definitely does not resurrect a village on the brink of historic financial depression either.

Read it at FanFiction.net.

My thoughts: This story has a very good start and I can't wait to find out what happens next. Hopefully the author keeps working on it, because there's just something about Kagome in Suna, completely changing the course of shinobi village history. Very good so far; definitely worth a look see.

This is the start of "All That Remains," the third book in the Heroes & Villains series.

Title: All That Remains
Author: Harper Kingsley
Original Fiction
World: Heroes & Villains
Genre: superhero, science fiction, fantasy
Summary: A little taste of things to come. Non-spoilery.

There was the acrid stink of smoke filling the air, along with the screams and desperate cries of the hurt and dying. The street in front of Caspian was a wreckage of twisted metal where dozens of vehicles had collided.

He felt helpless. Tragedy had already happened and he didn't know how they could clear away this mess. His mouth tasted sour with failure.

One hour ago he was eating a food truck taco and contemplating a nap. Now he was looking at a triage situation he didn't feel up to handling.

The lifestyle was wearing him down. Statistically speaking, most superheroes retired out of the field by their tenth year of active duty. He'd been doing this job for close to thirty.

He didn't think that he was quite ready to retire, but he might cut back on some duty shifts. He wouldn't do anyone any good if he let himself burn out.

Maybe it's time for a nice vacation, he thought. Surf, sand, and a chance to get my gills wet.

Just the thought of immersing himself in the ocean soothed some of the tension out of his shoulders. Enough that he was able to focus on the task at hand.

As the old timers had said, the ocean always called their people home in the end.

"All right, boys and girls, the situation has changed," Caspian called out. "It's time to focus on cleaning up the mess rather than making it. I want each of you to pair up with an Emergency Services team. It's search and rescue time. Follow the orders of the ES team leader and be careful, safe, and smart. Understood?"

The Junior League members answered in unison, "Yes, sir!"

They were good kids. There wasn't an ounce of hesitation as they rushed forward to rescue the wounded and comfort the dying. They were strong as a unit, even the ones that had never worked together.

Caspian felt proud watching them. Then he shook his head and stalked forward to do his own part.

People needed his help.

/EXCERPT

"Heroes & Villains" and "Allies & Enemies" can be read as standalone novels. H&V basically introduces Vereint and Warrick and sets the stage. A&E is where the story really starts. ATR probably needs A&E to make sense, because a lot of emotional shit happened in A&E.

Straight up, I was informed that I should have warned my beta before having her read A&E because there's some shocking things that happened and she started crying at work. My bad. She still gave it 5-stars though.
