When Eve was expelled from a garden and closed her eyes, allowing death to take her, she thought her duty as guardian of the tree had ended, but death was only the beginning, for there is no rest even in the afterlife.
The Great War Armageddon. Prophecies spoke of it, along with the one who would descend from the sky. The one did not arrive and Armageddon is now. The year is unknown, for the year will last as long as Armageddon takes place.
Fractured, the world lay barren. Skyscrapers, split open by some unspeakable force, mirror fingers of the dead. They reach toward heaven in a final plea for help, but there is a chance for redemption, for a child has been discovered holding a mystery in which she cannot understand. She is called by the name Angel, for her identity is unknown. Possessing the ability to heal, perhaps she can heal a fractured world.
Now, Eve stands before the entrance to the Garden of Eden. Satan and his angels are lobbying for the final eradication of humanity, and God seems less inclined to say no with each passing day. As the final vote is tallied and sways in Satan’s favor, Eve is called back into the fold.
She approaches the garden, for the garden is calling her name. In order to atone for what she had done, she must find a mortal who can help. A protector to watch over the child. That might involve fighting an army of angels, but no one ever said it would be easy.

This is the Deconstruction Series
by Stephen Sweeney
When starfighter pilot Simon Dodds is enrolled in a top secret military project, he and his wingmates begin to suspect that there is a lot more to the theft of a legendary battleship and an Imperial nation’s civil war than either the Confederation Stellar Navy or the government are willing to let on.
Within weeks of being reassigned to the Confederate border system of Temper, the five would begin to untangle a web of lies and a cover-up that seemed to span the length of the entire galaxy. And it would not be long before they themselves would come face to face with that which destroyed an empire: an unforgiving, unstoppable, and totally unrelenting foe.
There seemed to exist only one glimmer of hope of driving back the darkness: The ATAF Project – a secretly developed set of starfighters that may well just harbour some terrible secrets of their own.
“A tightly plotted action-adventure yarn with a good mix of likeable, interesting and nasty characters”
“Written with perspicacity and drive, with a strong voice and good attention to detail.”
