One word has changed everything. Always in hiding, never safe as long as the Common may be watching, while the all-powerful ruling authority, the Common, is most certainly plotting their ruthless and exacting revenge. With one word—"Revolution"—Alpha Robins has endangered so much, and has put the lives of everyone at risk. Yet, as Alpha and the others wait, there has been nothing to do but to shelter in hiding, in the safety of their underground Sea Caves, as Alpha and Theta have learned to cope with their losses.
One word changes everything. The all-powerful ruling authority, the Common, implants sensors into its citizens, sensors into the eyes and into the ears. They can see what you see and hear what you hear, and everything is monitored and recorded. One wrong word, or action, and you can lose your citizenship, which means death.
The Road to Jericho - About a boy from Arkansas, and his dog, who get wrapped up into dangerous circumstances.

A sleek high-speed train glides silently through the French countryside, bearing Michael, an Australian writer, and his travelling world of memory and speculation. Melbourne, 1946, calls to him: the pressure cooker of the city during World War II has produced a small creative miracle, and at this pivotal moment the lives of his newly married parents, a group of restless artists, a proud old woman with a tent for a home, a journalist, a gallery owner, a farmer and a factory developer irrevocably intersect.
An estimated five million US adults suffer from fibromyalgia and 90 percent of them are women. Unlike heart disease, diabetes, or cancer, fibromyalgia is not clearly understood. And even medical professionals misdiagnose it or do not know how to treat this chronic pain condition once a diagnoses is made.
Timothy and Ata were not sure what they would find when they went searching through the old dusty volumes of the true Histories of Earth, but now they seem to have created an unstoppable chain of events, and they and Barbara are now stuck in the middle. The Worlds are not as they should be. There is a new danger brewing that will bring the Light Travelers to the outer reaches of our galaxy and back again. All the Worlds of Men are now at risk, and not just Earth.
If only the dangers of light travel could be contained within one world. It was easier and safer that way, when our families and the ones that we love were not at risk. But after nearly a year's time, back on Earth, these dangers are beginning again, with a deadly malice. “They” are after Timothy and the rest of the group of light travelers: an unknown enemy who could be anyone or everyone, and all that Timothy has to go on is a note given to him by a mysterious vanishing boy.
If Timothy Hayfield had known the mysterious secrets his grandmother had kept quiet all these years, and if he'd known the peril that would await him during a seemingly average summer's holiday in Mayfield, then he might have stayed behind. In the undiscovered corners of his family's estate, he would find the fates of kings, and of worlds, that are hung in the balance.
In the old, abandoned Greyford house on the outskirts of the Mayfield School for Girls, Delany would be completely and purposefully alone...or so she thought. Yet there was more to this house than first met the eye: There were secret passages and hidden treasures, lost and forgotten with the passing of time, and a room...a fantastic and otherworldly sort of room, which she had decided to call "the Window Room". This is a story about the dangerous and mysterious adventures she found there.
