Piloted by a six-year-old girl, the godlike Skalm guards the Districts of TASC. Her family is long dead. Her adopted father is a synthetic copy of an alien, her nanny an artificial mind connected via subspace to every part of the globe, feeding the young girl information, finding prey to satiate her growing thirst. But the young girl is an innocent, a victim, one of millions the war has already claimed.

it was a great bundle of stories with a very spooky first story. I really enjoyed listening to all of them but it gets gross in places. the main character is intense but likeable and other characters add a lot to the story line. enjoy.

In 2004, Ruri Kell agrees to sell her family island to Scottish professor Iain McInnes, but she soon discovers he's after more than her property.
