Sanctuary 2 (The Foliage Series Book 4)

by Aline Riva

Several years on, those who sought out cyborg scientist Blake Riley and fought for liberty in Sanctuary are settling down to life in Cyborg Valley – a life which would be perfect if not for the restrictions placed on the cyborg community by Freedom City, who keep the cyborgs within their own boundaries, still mistrusting the use of the enemy alien tech that enabled the development of life saving cyborg advancement. When General Felix Lynch, now a family man, is offered a deal on his former crime of stealing from the last factory five years before, with the liberty of the valley hanging in the balance, Lynch agrees to stand trial in Freedom City – and finds himself on the receiving end of a despicable trap that may see him sent to the gas chamber… While Lynch fights for his freedom, former stage magician and Valley Festival host Ashley Jekel is given devastating news by his close friend Professor Riley – the wiring Riley repaired after Jekel’s injuries in the battle for Sanctuary is failing, and he is facing a fight for life as his wife Joy fears one battle even Captain Murdock could not help her win – the fight to save her husband’s life. As the two men fight to survive for very different reasons, the political situation between the valley and the city explode as the anti cyborg movement End Cyborg Life begin a campaign of destruction.
Now it seems Joy and her former team of rebels will once again have to pick up weapons and fight to save those they love, as Lynch and Jekel both struggle to survive against the odds as the anti cyborg movement closes in and the city of Freedom and Cyborg Valley inch closer and closer towards an all out war…

A robot probe using newly developed Alcubierre warp drive technology has returned from the Alpha Centauri system, revealing the existence of two Earthlike planets.

Sanctuary 1 (The Foliage Series Book 3)

by Aline Riva

The first of two books guest written by Aline Riva (The Body in the Wall, Deserted with the Dead Series), which tie in to the end of Foliage Termination and sees the story now switch to the rebuilt, post apocalypse world, a world that is now using alien tech left over from the android war to repair humanities sick and wounded – bringing about the age of the cyborg. But as paranoia and fear of another android war begin to spread, Freedom city makes the devastating decision to ban all cyborg treatments, leaving those who are now part machine without life giving cybernetic fluid. When General Lynch, a war hero and heavily modified cyborg, is branded a terrorist for stealing the fluid from the last factory , he goes on the run with his lover Elise – taking along Joy Thorn, who firmly supports the cyborg cause. Along the way they pick up Ashley Jekel, the former stage magician with a big secret – he too is a cyborg and has been since before the war, designed by Blake Riley, the scientist the cyborgs call King Steel. When Joy recalls him as the man she met in wartime, love begins to grow between the former resistance fighter and Jekel, who can not hide his secret forever, because his cyborg wiring is damaged and can only be repaired by Riley. As they travel across the ravaged land in search of the legendary cyborg’s territory known simply as Sanctuary, along the way the group on the run in a battered old motor home will encounter terrors of the new age – howlers still stalking the land, insane gangs lurking below ground – but most terrifying of all their biggest enemy is humanity, because they have come to fear the cyborg race. When the travellers do reach Sanctuary, they will not find a safe place, instead, a war zone – and as they battle to take back the valley from a ruthless dictator, relations between Freedom City and Cyborg valley remain in the balance as the city regard the cyborgs with mistrust, and the threat of another world war hangs as a silent threat in the air…
This is the first of two books that tell the tale of the cyborg empire in post apocalyptic Britain.



Grid Wars

by KC Martin

It is the year 2061 and Grid World is now a thriving world with over two hundred thousand people. Paul Wilson was the first visitor to this digital paradise and he has now lived there for thirty years.

Sadly life is very different back in what is termed â??the real world’. Continual global wars, devastation and starvation has now ravaged the population and those few that survive and now nothing more than slaves working for Supreme Commander Chang and his murderous armies.

Chang meanwhile is very aware of the existence of Grid World and when he gains total global dominance he begins to cast his envious attention towards the digital utopia that exists below his feet. If he is unable to conquer Grid World then he will destroy it and everyone that is living there.

Can Grid World survive against an army that has over one million drug crazed soldiers and a genocidal leader? Will they fall the way of the nations on the planet’s surface or will Paul lead them to victory.

Who, if any, will survive?

Emperor Anu did not know that there is another person in this universe that has the same powers as he does, if not even higher.

Enki, the leading geneticist in the empire, did not know who the main suspect was for the crime he was accused of committing.

Seth, half human and half Anunnaki, was not aware that genes are more important than the free will.

And prince Daimon didn’t know how to become the new Emperor.

But, the ignorance wasn’t meant for them.

Everything that had to happen started to happen, because no one can be saved from Galactic Damnation â?¦

No One Left Behind: Al-Unidos Liberation Chronicles Book 1

by David Perry

What would happen if ordinary, everyday people got caught up in extraordinary events?

CALEXIT is no longer a threat to the nation. It is no longer a promise to those who yearn for it. It is now the state of reality.

Is this fiction or prophecy?

“No One Left Behind” is truly the just-in-time TEOTWAWKI political adventure for today. Fed up with intrusive meddling in their enlightened progressive society by a reactionary and regressive federal government, the three west coast states decide enough is enough. For a century they have made steady progress toward an inclusive and judgment-free culture. Now it could all be dismantled an unpredictable, conservative president and his cronies in Congress.

The West Coast must secede to protect their residents from tyranny.

Chief Carson is compelled out of retirement into a harrowing rescue mission behind the lines of this new nation. To rescue his daughter, he must navigate danger, ill-defined political boundaries, and violent factions that span the spectrum of politics and self-interest.

David C. Perry breaks into this genre with the same detailed and intricately researched backdrop details that he brought to American Naval History. Now he places you in the center of history as it is being made.



Fibreglass

by Aline Riva

In the middle of a busy shopping centre stands a large, fibreglass lobster – a strange statue that children are mysteriously drawn to, and enjoy using as a climbing frame. But there is something strange about the unusual statue that stands on the ground floor with its wide mouth gaping open and its dark eyes staring into nothing – the lobster is not a lobster, and comes to life at night and runs up the walls of the plaza. When Coral, a woman who has fond childhood memories of the statue she called Lobbie, realizes the lobster’s secret, she enlists the help of Nick, a sceptical security guard, who at first thinks she is crazy – until he is given proof beyond all doubt that the creature is indeed alive – and possesses miraculous powers. As they uncover the truth, they also learn the lobster is not a lobster but an alien being who is far from home, and has been for many centuries – and then they must find a way to send him back, and quickly – because it seems an evil sorceress is in pursuit, and determined to steal the creature and use it for evil purposes…
