Black Widows: Episode 1 (Black Widows: Season 1)

by Michael G. Thomas

Black Widows: Episode 1 is a thrilling science fiction series about the infamous all-female mercenary unit. Aboard their heavily-armed ship Medusa, they embark on secretive missions throughout the crumbling Confederacy as it wages a terrible and bloody civil war.

The lives of Syala and her twin sister Arana change forever on the day the slavers hit their new home on the Skylla Research Facility. It is a day that started like any other, before turning into a terrifying massacre as soldiers and hideous creatures swarm through the facility killing or enslaving anyone that stands in their way. The sisters struggle to survive as a desperate few try and fight back, but nothing can hold back the horde. Until they find a single mercenary dressed in black armour who refuses to back down. Her name is Zhang Wei, and she is a Black Widow.

Black Widows is serialised over six short-read episodes per season, in the same fashion as a TV series. More adventures will be released over coming weeks before being combined into a 6 volume compilation. See my website for news on the next thrilling release at www.starcrusader.com

Sleepless (Bird of Stone Book 1)

by Tracey Ward

My name is Alex Mills, and I have a superpower.

Don’t be jealous, it sucks. I can’t control it. My mind is a mutinous SOB that takes over when I go to sleep. I’m just a girl trying to get some shut eye while it decides to throw a rager that can land me just about anywhere in the world.

The base of the Eiffel Tower.
The shore on the coast Ireland.
The third baseline at Wrigley Field.

Sounds exciting and fun, right? Wrong. My not so superpower is unpredictable, uncontrollable and annoying as hell. It’s also how I met Nick.

Every cloud has a silver lining. Nick is mine.

Nick is extraordinary as well. He can’t feel fear. Never has, never will. It’s worked out for him as a PJ in the Air Force, one of the most dangerous jobs in the military, but where it’s not helpful is with his social skills. Nick is cold, distant and apathetic.

He’s also my hero. And if he’s to be believed, I’m his.

I first met him when he died and that wasn’t even the weirdest moment of our relationship. Neither is this moment here and now, trapped together in an island prison on the Behring Sea. It’s a long, strange story between his death and his prison. One full of sheep, docks, Jabberwocks and a very special stone. I could tell it to you’d like to hear it. I’ve got time…

*SLEEPLESS has been re-edited and re-released in preparation of POWERLESS, the final book in the series. Coming Fall 2016.



EDEN (The Union Series Book 3)

by Phillip Richards

Eden’s beauty was testament to a centuries-old dream to turn a barren, rocky world into a paradise where mankind could live in peace. But Eden wasn’t paradise. Torn apart by decades of colonial rivalry, the provinces were deeply divided, and as two rogue provinces begin yet another bitter fight, the Union is forced to step in before they go too far, causing the entire planet to descend into war.

Andy Moralee finds himself quickly sucked into the conflict, and nothing could have prepared him for the depths that humanity had sunk to out in the forest – where loyalty was achieved at the end of a gun. Ordered to ally with one side of Eden’s warring factions, he fears he now has two enemies to watch.

In a desperate moment, Andy must choose between his mission and the only thing that separates him from the evil that lives in the forest â?¦ his soul.

Orion Connection: The Legends Trilogy (The Orion Series Book 1)

by S DeGiorgio

The greatest cover up of all time . . . was orchestrated five thousand years ago . . . this is the continuation of that story.

ORION CONNECTION is the first installment in the Legends trilogy, in which fiction novelist, S DeGiorgio, offers an eerily plausible connection between Mars and the rise of modern civilization.

It’s 2050, Earth’s resources are nearly gone, armies guard what precious little remains, and as mankind prepares to set foot on Mars, leaders of an ancient society are forced out of the shadows to protect secrets they’ve guarded for millennia.

NASA veteran and living legend, Commander Robert Lawson, is having the worst day of his life. On the eve of Earth’s first manned mission to Mars, unknown adversaries have murdered four members of his crew, including his pilot and hand picked successor, Mitch Reynolds.

Rumor and espionage threaten to tear the crew apart at a time when America can’t afford to fail. Continuing our way of life requires the world to witness the stars and stripes being plunged into Martian soil, but as the reserve team is pressed into service, fears grow within government circles that co-conspirators may be on board.

Standing down is not an option. Control of Mars’ mineral rights will reestablish America’s position as the leader of the free worldâ??except we’re not the only country in the race for the red planet.

No one’s ever gone farther than the moon. Members of the crew only have each other, elite training, and raw instincts to rely on. Not everyone believes they’ll make it home, and some consider them expendableâ??acceptable losses to advance the causeâ??but Lawson has no intention of letting that happen.

Inspired by the real, but highly controversial “anomalies” detected in the Cydonia region of Mars by Viking I in 1976, and the unexplainable technological marvels that predate the rise of Egypt on Earth by thousands of yearsâ??this novel is rocket fuel for people seeking answers to the question, “Are we alone?”

“This story kept me spellbound and on the edge of my seat! I have been reading non-stop all day and just couldn’t put it down. Now I have to wait for the next book, which I hope is out soon. If you’re looking for great action, science fiction, mystery and a fantastic cast of characters, this is the book you need to read.” ~ RW



The Abscission Zone (Unintentional Cruelty Book 1)

by Samuel Muggington

Dr. Texie Raynott and Dr. Dock Hatman hope to use their expertise in plant biology to discover new cancer drugs. They never imagined that they would end up fighting a global menace that has deadly implications for the future of humankind.

While examining a tissue sample, Texie falls and cracks her skull. At the same time, Dock uncovers the truth behind a series of mysterious deaths. Earth’s green plants have turned violent. Someone or something has begun a new war that could wipe out all of humanity. Mother Nature wants to reclaim the Earth, and there is little we can do to stop her.

While some choose to stay and fight, others elect to establish a new home on another planet. As Texie makes an astounding discovery on Mars, Dock tries to stop the conflict that is ravaging Earth.

Samuel Muggington’s science fiction adventure takes readers from the brink of humanity’s collapse to the struggles of a newly colonized planet and beyond. His work shows both the fragility and savagery of the natural world and will inspire readers to look more closely at their impact on the Earth’s ecosystems.
