What do you do when you’ve burned every bridge that can lead you home?
When the only path to survival is through an impregnable citadel of certain death?
And when the one way to save your place in the Tribe may be to leave your friends behind forever?
Strap in for the final chapter in the Raiders saga – the biggest and most explosive ARISEN adventure yet, and the climax and conclusion of the epic series. The USS John F. Kennedy, humanity's last best hope for survival, is running out time, trapped in the Straits of Hormuz by their most lethal and sinister threat ever. And to salvage any chance of survival, or progressing the mission to save humanity, the Marine Raiders must gear up for one last impossible raid, assaulting into the teeth of a fortress defended by 200 Wagner Group contractors, each of whom is better than every one of them – and who are led by a malevolent ghost from the past. Finally, Yaz must confront all his demons to have any chance of coming back from this one, of saving his teammates, or of finding redemption for all that has come before.

ARISEN, Book Four
In Canterbury, as the virus rages out of control, one troop of Royal Marine Commandos fights a 360-degree battle for survival, while also racing to rescue the Channel Tunnel survivors from a relentless siege – all before Hellfire missile strikes and carpet bombing kill anyone left alive. Across the Atlantic, the crew of the USS John F. Kennedy risks a catastrophic reactor meltdown to get out of the path of a ten-mile-wide tide of the dead; while, onshore at the Naval Air Base, Wesley's tiny team maintains a lonely vigil – which turns horrifyingly dangerous as the edge of the storm hits, pushing desperate civilians ahead of it. In the air above, Master Gunnery Sergeant Fick leads a hand-picked fire-team of spec-ops Marines halfway across North America to take and defend an airfield on a remote island – but learns to his cost that it is a place with a terrible history, and very dangerous secrets. Finally, out on Lake Michigan, Alpha team races toward extraction... but first must fight their most harrowing battle yet – this time against the living, who are both more treacherous and a hell of a lot better armed than the dead.
Who will be left standing at the end? Find out – if your heart can take the strain – in the biggest and most explosive ARISEN book yet:

Two teams of pipe-hitting special-operations Marines, a tribe knit tight as steel cable.
One Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsman, struggling to find his place and keep the others alive.
And everything at the end of the world exploding spectacularly at all times…
The world’s last nuclear supercarrier, its support ships, and its Marine Raider guardians have survived the first months of post-Apocalypse. But now they must keep their 7,500 souls fed, their non-nuclear vessels fueled, and their honor clean – by deciding whether to risk everything by coming to the aid of beleaguered American troops in contact, in the most remote combat outpost in the world. Their lonely battles and struggles will take them from the teeming slums off the west coast of India, to the world’s tallest building in Dubai, to an idyllic desert-island paradise they can briefly call home, and finally into the unforgiving heights and impossible decisions of the Hindu Kush.

They are the most capable, committed, and indispensable counter-terrorist operators in the world
They have no rivals anywhere for skill, speed, ferocity, intelligence, flexibility, and sheer resolve
NOW ONE OF THEM IS THE ENEMY
Alpha team leader Sergeant Major Eric Rheinhardt is retiring from the Unit – hanging up his guns and jockeying a desk at the Pentagon. But just when he thought he was out, a ghost has emerged from his past (along with a lost love), dredging up a secret shame and past-due debt. Much worse, his old mentor and now nemesis Rod “the God” Tucker has turned up on the payroll of the messianic Iranian mullahs – training their proxy fighters in Hamas and Hizbullah, purchasing cyberwar talent and fissile material from the Chinese… and laying the groundwork for the fall of the Third Temple, the modern state of Israel.
The explosive collision of these two legendary operators will ultimately embroil Israeli special forces, Chinese hackers, squadrons of D-boys, Tier-1 SEAL teams, CIA paras, Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, hyper-skilled jihadis, and Iranian Revolutionary Guards – all in a no-holds-barred street fight for survival. Before it's over, the battlespace will be littered with armed robots, stealth drones, a nuclear-cruise-missile-armed submarine, a hijacked Soviet warship, shrieking helicopter crashes, radiological rocket attacks, hacker duels to the death (literally), vendettas, betrayals, reversals, feints, diversions, double crosses, disasters, assassination attempts, one-in-a-million shots at victory, and unstoppable kill-crazy rampages.
Get ready for COUNTER-ASSAULT – where the action, tactics, high stakes, and blasts of sheer adrenaline assault off the page, and do not relent.
[The D-Boys will return in 2021 in CLOSE QUARTERS BATTLE – the third salvo in MSF's series of high-concept, high-tech special operations military adventure novels.]
