Before the Dawn’s Light

Before the Dawn’s Light is the first collection of short stories by C. John Archer.

Taking place between the events of forthcoming novels, Lone Wolf and Lunar Eclipse, Before the Dawn’s Light features five short stories set across the hostile Fifteen Systems of the Union of Earth Nations.

While the dangerous but troubled Stephanie Naylor struggles to balance her own sense of ethics with that of the government she serves, the near-mythical Black Siren has no qualms about the lengths she’s willing to go to in order to protect her own empire.

This collection is available to read as part of a Kindle Unlimited subscription. Alternatively, you can purchase the book in Kindle format for £1.99 GBP, $2.99 USD, or equivalent in your local currency.

Suitable for readers aged 18+. These stories contain strong language, violence and themes that some readers may find disturbing.

Before the Dawn’s Light contains all four titles listed below, plus the additional story Siren’s Call.

One Rule for Another

This story is now available as part of the compilation, Before the Dawn’s Light.

Kitch hasn’t been part of the Security and Intelligence Task Force for long, and he’s eager to prove himself to the squad. When security worker Malone Bryson is unfortunate enough to find himself aboard a myraxxin pirate vessel, it’s SITF who are charged with dealing with the situation and Kitch’s first taste of real action.

Led by the highly-respected Commander Stephanie Naylor, heroine of the Encroachment War, the special forces unit quickly deals with the pirates. However, the true test for Kitch is yet to come. He’s about to find out there’s one rule for them, and one rule for another.

When Needs Must

This story is now available as part of the compilation, Before the Dawn’s Light.

Giuliani Moretto entered Favalia’s hedonistic heartland, the Anthemusa Nightclub.

In a place awash with contraband cigarettes, blue dust and mylaran dancing girls, it was obvious why most were there. Yet Moretto wasn’t there to party. He was looking for someone, and those cautious looks did not go unnoticed by Jina Penza.

The confident nightclub manager curiously approached Moretto, discovering that when needs must, even the upstanding will turn to darkness to right the ultimate wrong.

Tatrell’s Game

This story is now available as part of the compilation, Before the Dawn’s Light.

Connor Tatrell was once a respected military psychologist. His charitable deeds earned him great applause, and his friendships with the rich and powerful granted him numerous opportunities.

However, when he is revealed to have lived a double life as a brutal serial killer, he becomes the ultimate problem. Commander Stephanie Naylor is charged with delivering him, unharmed, to the Alvaro Correctional Facility. Tatrell, though, has no intention of being a quiet passenger.

Having once had access to Naylor’s records, he draws upon his knowledge of her past to goad the soldier into a battle of wits. Who will ultimately triumph in Tatrell’s game?

Tears of the Daughter

Luiza had not seen her father in a while. Perhaps, with time having past, he might finally forgive her for the sin of being herself?

Sitting down in Favalia’s Anthemusa nightclub, it would not be long before the man who used to take her ice-fishing on her birthday would sit beside her. Unfortunately, it seems that time does not heal old wounds. Fresh wounds, however, just might.
