Imperial forces launch a brutal assault against the Terran leadership at Krysokeras, leaving behind a trail of bodies and devastation.

The alliance is massing a gigantic fleet of levied soldiers and mercenaries to wipe out the Terran forces of King Agesilaus.

In a display of overwhelming power, they throw fleets of ships and armies of levies and mercenaries against the Terrans. The outcome is uncertain, until Agesilaus and his generals uncover a stunning secret. A relic of the past, a weapon that could annihilate an entire fleet in hours. If true, the discovery could inspire others to rally behind Agesilaus and bring him victory against the Empire.

Roland House II

by Robert O’Reilly

This is a continuation of â??Roland House’ from the beginning. It’s a modern-day â??Eve’ story, where she eats the apple of knowledge and gains complete control over her â??Adam’ and all the world besides. In these times there is no â??God’ to punish her, but there is a â??Devil’.

It’s the present day and in a lab in California Nanochips are being developed that can interface with the human brain. A dozen of these untested wafers fall into the hands of a rich, young recluse, Roland, who tries one and discovers its cure-all, mind-enhancing properties.

In a glow of health and generosity, he shares them with the few people he meets, a ten-year-old autistic girl and her mother, a cancer patient, a comatose girl and her father, a Japanese tycoon, among others, and his long empty mansion is filled with life and guests.

But World War Three begins and one other guest joins this small group of â??illuminati’, a recipient of a faulty wafer, a first test case, Claire, with exponentially expanded powers of mind over everything and everyone, except love.

So begin the adventures of this group of mental samurai to survive and help others survive in a dizzying spin of events.

States are not far behind to mass produce chips and to discover the integration of minds and computers leads to the disintegration of identity. Plans are hatched to dose and subjugate everyone. Claire, well ahead of the curve, steps up to the plate to stop this, to preserve human dignity. The revolution begins, and it ends, along with the resolution of her own demons, on these pages.

(Note: This volume comprises both â??Roland House’ and â??Roland House II’, the complete story)

Thy House

by Chad Williams

Generations ago, superhuman abilities emerged in the people of earth. The superpowered organized themselves into seven noble Houses, each ruling over a portion of the globe. So to not destroy one another, they chose to live as neighbors on an island they had risen into the sky above the Atlantic. About nine years ago, the Houses were on the brink of world war. To prevent this, the first families of the Houses of Braun and Miyamoto arranged for the marriage of their eldest children. Today, as this arrangement crumbles, Evanton Braun, Keiko Miyamoto, Oliver Cunningham, and Joseph Meka, the foremost children of their respective Houses, will each have to decide where they stand in relation to their Houses and to one other. Though still teenagers, the fate of the world depends on the choices they now must make. These are their stories.

Although destined to become the Patriarch of a military dictatorship, Joseph Meka is a progressive whose liberal ideals put him at odds with his House and his father, the current Patriarch.

Proud to the point of arrogance, Evanton Braun is to inherit the Patriarchship of his House upon his twenty-second birthday. To preserve the peace, he was committed by his House to marry Keiko Miyamoto. However, a harsh upbringing has made it difficult for him to truly connect with her.

Keiko is the eldest daughter of the House of Miyamoto’s first family. As a woman, however, she cannot inherit the Patriarchship. Instead, she is fated to marry Evanton Braun. An artist and a free spirit, she is torn between the inclinations of her heart and the demands of her House.

Charming and good humored, but impulsive, Oliver Cunningham is more interested in life’s pleasures than his role as heir to the Patriarchship. As he approaches his inheritance, however, his lifestyle is bound to catch up to him.

    Alien Apocalypse: The Virus: Apocalypse caused by Alien Virus

    by AJ Newman

    Alien Apocalypse: The Virus – No Zombies!

    “The Virus” is the first novel in this series that tells the story of how the greatest find in human history almost wipes mankind from the face of the Earth. The story shows how a group of people band together to survive the aftermath of this horrible event and work together to survive The Alien Apocalypse.
    .
    Most Science Fiction and Post-Apocalyptic yarns start with a nuclear war, monetary collapse, EMP blast, or earth born virus and have the main characters finding ways to survive the “Event.” This is a different story.
    What if man finds an ancient alien spacecraft crashed on the Moon? Why did it crash? What if alien bodies are found? What if aliens, like mankind had viruses, fungi, and parasites? The big what if is what if those viruses, fungi, and parasites found a way to the Earth and infected mankind and Earth’s animals?
    .
    The what ifs hit the fan in this Post-Apocalyptic story about the USA finding a crashed alien spacecraft on the dark side of the moon. The USA keeps the find to its self and discovers a treasure trove of alien technologies that have the potential to yield startling advancements in faster than light travel, vast improvements in computer processing, robotics, and military weapons and applications. They also find four alien bodies and the computerized medical technology that is a thousand years more advanced than current Earth ability.
    .
    Can the USA keep the technology, alien bodies, and potential weapons of war secret from its enemies and friends long enough to assure the new found treasures are used for the benefit of all mankind? Should they keep it secret?
    Would the Russians and Chinese use the technology for the benefit of all mankind? Can they keep the alien bodies isolated and keep any potentially infectious material from mankind?
    .
    Can the world survive if the alien bugs and germs are unleashed?
