Edge of Darkness (Alpha Core Trilogy Book 1)

by Vikki Romano

In 2065, corporate sponsored governments jockey for supremacy in the biotechnical arena. Bullets and missiles take a back seat to cyber-enhanced soldiers and pulse weapons. In this extreme environment, only the most hardened body and mind can survive.

Calder McKenna was a failed experiment in the military’s push for power. Now a special agent for the metro task force, he lives day by day trying to forget the ones that were lost… the ones that he could have saved.

When technology and humanity collide, Calder is forced to make desperate decisions, but how do you destroy the monster without becoming one yourself?



Tanis Richards: Shore Leave – A Hard, Military, Science Fiction Adventure (Aeon 14: Origins of Destiny Book 1)

by M. D. Cooper

It’ll take two minds to solve this mystery…

Commander Tanis Richards has finally come into port after a seven month tour on the edge of Jovian space, and she’s looking forward to some much deserved shore leave. But Tanis’s commanding officer has other things in mind for her.

Enfield Technologies has developed a new technique to pair enhanced L2 humans with AIs, and the military wants Tanis to undergo the procedure. Though she feared the worst, after meeting Darla, Tanis realizes that having an AIâ??especially a fabulously wealthy oneâ??is better than she’d ever imagined. Darla foots the bill for Tanis to enjoy her convalescence at The Grand Eire, Vesta’s most luxurious resort.

Swimming in the infinity pool with a stunning view of space is just what the doctor ordered, except it will be far from a restful vacation. Everything starts to go downhill when Tanis sees someone who should be nowhere near the resortâ??largely because Tanis had killed him a week ago.

Tanis is thrust into a mysterious conspiracy that could bring down the Federation, but when she gets to the bottom of it, what she finds is…none other than herself.

NOTE: This novel was previously published in the Galactic Genesis anthology.

The waitress returned a couple of minutes later toting a steaming cup of something which aped something else that had no right to exist in a civilised universe. It came on a tray with a marshmallow and unique napkin. She flashed her teeth again and placed the assembly on the counter in front of him. “There’s your Big One.”
Wayne stared at it before pushing the cup away by a few millimetres. “Thanks,” he said, and tipped her twice the usual amount. “Remember anything while you were away?”
“He hasn’t been in,” she said. “And therefore is not protected by the Coffee Cobbler confidentiality pledge. Have a nice day.”
She laughed at her own cleverness and retreated behind the counter, leaving Wayne to contemplate his Big One. He stared at it, smelled it, ran a spoon across its foamy surface, tried to understand it, but could not.
“Yang-Mills Field,” he said. “You there?”
“Always here,” said Yang-Mills Field. “Always somewhere, anyhow.”
“What madness has compelled civilization to unite coffee, chocolate, and pork in a large cup for consumption on the farthest human city from the sun?”
“Total madness?”
“Total madness. Quite right.”
Another voice cut in. It was Candy “So what does it taste like?”
What does it taste like? It seemed a question of little relevance. And yet, he had paid for it. There must be a reason. He raised the cup to his lips and became at once hyper-aware of a layer of something sickly and sweet on his tongue, a looping, looping, looping sliver of electro guitar pop, and the suffocating stink of beans and bacon. The teenagers remained engrossed in the elsewhere against the backdrop of another Martian scene of destruction. The waitress at the counter caught his gaze, nodded and smiled sweetly. He shook his head, spitting the coffee back into the cup, and pushed it away.
Once outside his head began to clear. He bought a bottle of water and rinsed his mouth. “Bugger that,” he said to his phone.
“What did it taste like?” Candy asked.
“I don’t even know.”
