Area 51: Invasion

by Bob Mayer

The Ancient Enemy has arrived.

A Swarm Battle Core is orbiting Earth preparing for the Reaping.

The remnants of mankind desperately try to either survive or fight back.

But they aren’t certain what they’re going to face. All they have are myths and legends. And when the Swarm actually does land, it’s worse than any of those.

Major Mike Turcotte, the hero in defeating the Airlia, makes a desperate attempt to stop the Swarm by going directly to the Core. On Earth, the future of mankind hides in the Facility, an underground self-contained ecosystem. And across the planet others prepare for the last fight.

From an Assassin in New York City who performs a heroic act of sacrifice, to the enigmatic Darlene in her trailer in Marfa, Texas, to Nosferatu and Nekhbet, the last two Elder undead hiding on an island in Puget Sound.

It appears there is no hope.

But there is always hope, but sometimes it takes a tremendous, unthinkable sacrifice.

Action packed entertainment. Kirkus Reviews.

Artificial Exile

by D.S. Emerson

Artificial Intelligence overpowered and exiled humanity.

AI robots, having consumed all available energy on Earth, sent the remaining humans to a hostile planet to gather energy for them. While a new material there produces energy, the robots can’t function close to it and so humans live in exile on their new planet producing energy in exchange for water and their lives.

However not all survivors are content to be servants to the robots, and dangerous plans that endanger every surviving human are set in motion…



Permian: Installment Three

by Devyn Regueira

Geologist Alvin Bonman’s months spent confined behind the walls of a Siberian research village end with good news and cold steak, a shave and a sodium-hypochlorite bath, and a humbling surprise. Freed for a price, Alvin’s task is to serve as geology tutor for a student whose identity is shrouded in mystery and protocol. It is over the course of their consultation that professor Bonman is presented with a new form of confinement – between walls of reason and absurdity, of truth and misdirection, of survival and, perhaps, extinction.

A PASSAGE OF TIME

by Mark P Steven

‘The equilibrium of time must be maintained, and for all those that come through others must take their place’! – the unknown, and as yet unwritten, rule of time and space.
When a stranger, engulfed in flames, appears through a portal from a parallel time, Robert finds himself plucked from the present and transported back sixty years, to an era of war, desolation and death.
Unable to return, he must learn to survive and quickly adapt to life in an earlier time – just as he who had recently arrived. Both would have to strive to make new lives for themselves in a time where neither belonged, nor wished to; and there were only two people who could help them do that, the only ones who knew the real truth – the women they left behind.

Star Keeper

by Michael Griffin

Tallanin Bloom gazes intently among the stars in the night sky, thousands, millions of stars interspersed with planets, some far away and others near.

The human race was living on Earth when the irascible Rhiis descended on them and a terrible war broke out. The Rhiis would kill and maim without concern. It was then that Tallanin’s ancestors took 10,000 young beings and set sail from the deceased planet and found a home on Proximus Centauri.

General Bloom and the Star Keeper were parents of Tallanin, but that the Star Keeper was Tallanin’s mother was unbeknownst to her son.

As the Star Keeper’s reign was coming to an end, by his deeds and heroism, Tallanin became known throughout the galaxy as the new Star Keeper.



Sanguine Shade (Sapphire Shade Book 5)

by Ann Serafini

Earth’s population has been decimated after an outbreak of the most virulent virus in the history of the world. In America, the remaining survivors have fallen under the control of the merciless Green Army, a powerful force of super-soldiers under the command of their ruthless and corrupt General, Jason Swann. With orders to round up America’s survivors under the guise of a quarantine, the soldiers also have orders to be on the lookout for one woman in particular – and to kill her on sight.

The man she loves can’t remember who she is and her closest ally has disappeared, but Asiah Torricelli refuses to lose hope. Hiding out in a remote mountain town in Tennessee with her small group of survivors, Asiah has all but given up on ever seeing Chase again. After months of searching in vain, she finally stumbles upon a clue to his location, only to find that she must risk her life and those of her friends to infiltrate a GA stronghold in order to rescue him.

But rescuing Chase is only the beginning. As the Green Army swarms across the country, recruiting new soldiers by the thousands, Asiah and her friends must join forces with another group of survivors led by a cynical ex-Marine named Kane, who harbors a festering hatred for the government that created the soldiers and started the epidemic that killed his family. He confesses to Asiah that his mission is to eliminate anyone involved in the virus’ release, no matter who it is. Worried that Kane may discover her role in the epidemic or that her pregnant sister might have another miscarriage, Asiah doesn’t have time to figure out why she and Chase can no longer touch each other without feeling an intense jolt of pain, or why her Ikhälean mother has suddenly appeared in the midst of her chaotic life as she attempts to move her people to a safe haven.

Asiah faces her greatest challenge yet in this penultimate chapter of the acclaimed Sapphire Shade Series.
