The treaty is signed. The war is over.
Or is it?
In the wake of the bitter galactic conflict, a cauldron of desperate refugees is rife with rival cartels and flooded with drugs and weapons.
In this pocket of lawlessness, old enemies are fighting a new war by proxy.
Captain Jackson Adams of the Coalition Defense Force is tasked with gathering a ragtag crew for a black ops mission—infiltrate the cartels and discover the enemy’s ultimate scheme.
But what they uncover is more horrifying than anyone ever anticipated.
The shadow war has begun.
No matter the successes under his belt, Captain Jackson Adams fails in the one mission that matters most—family. Home to visit his ailing father, Jackson and his brother can’t stop bickering long enough to manage repairs around the ranch before duty again calls.
The League of Sol is in a silent war with the Terran Coalition. But Coalition Intelligence’s hands are tied without actionable proof—until an undercover asset is murdered and another goes missing inside an independent megacorp.
Nosamo Aerothermic has made a killing through atmospheric terraforming, creating stable planetary environments for human habitation. With refugees flooding the Terran border, their newest development is guaranteed to revolutionize the industry.
And draw more than League attention.
Both foreign and domestic enemies descend on the space station, complicating Jackson and his crew’s rescue of their intelligence officer. But when the League’s nefarious plans for Nosamo’s technology come to light, what was a simple heist becomes a desperate gamble, and Jackson is forced to ignore protocol in a race to save the Terran Coalition.
Before time runs out.
Spare parts — that’s all Baden was looking for. Even then, whatever wrecks the pirates leave to rust in some corner of space are hardly worth the time he spends salvaging them. But a book? A Bible, no less? Now, that’s different.
The pages will bring a nice payout, with the content itself maybe more than nice. Baden had thought the secret police erased all trace of religion from the five colonies. But what if the find keeps him?
A talking book should be the least of Baden’s worries with the interstellar war storming. Should be. However, when the secret police are tipped off, reclaiming the Word that was abolished years ago, becomes a matter of afterlife and death.
Vincent’s not the only one searching for her. An old adversary is one step ahead, determined to claim the same storied treasure from a legendary starship the spies are tracking.
It could be filled with unfathomable riches.
It could hold terrible dangers.
And when all else fails, it will cost Vincent everything he thought was valuable to stand against unyielding greed.
Vincent Chen would rather stay far away from his birthplace. But when he’s called back to Tiaozhan, it’s his job that’s on the line.
His superiors at MarkTel don’t like the publicity his adventures have brought the company, which holds the monopoly on galactic communications. Vincent dutifully promises to keep quiet for the duration of his stay.
Except his younger brother has other ideas.
Martin Chen is mixed up with dangerous smugglers, who’re furious he’s encroaching on their business, and they won’t let him simply walk away. It’ll take all Vincent’s savvy and a partnership with a legendary law enforcement officer to keep his brother—and himself—alive.
And his family intact.
Vincent Chen makes sure his comms ferry satellites don’t harbor malfunctions. He’d prefer they didn’t hide people inside, too.
The woman left comatose aboard one he recovers is on a vital mission. She must stop criminals from stealing classified secrets and selling them to the highest bidder. But those criminals know she’s on the run, and Vincent is caught up in the chase.
Determined they stay silent, she’s left him only one choice: to seek help from his fellow comms jockeys, in hopes they can fend off a raid and keep the data safe. When their plans fall apart, Vincent must rely on others when he’d rather be on his own…
And trusting anyone is dangerous.
Vincent Chen keeps star systems in close communication with each other as he tends to the comms ferry satellites that connect the Realm of Five.
When he responds to small colony’s apparent malfunction, though, he stumbles onto an enslaved people.
The problem is, the enslaved used to be the oppressors.
They’re all former agents of Kesek, the secret police that spent the last century suppressing religion by arresting, torturing, and killing believers—including Vincent’s uncle. But it also includes the children and families of those agents.
Vincent is drawn deeper into the plot against them, until he’s forced to choose the right side…
Whether he can forgive, however, is the most dangerous question.
So, no one can blame him for enjoying time off from the neverending task of slaying astral fiends.
For about five seconds.
A daylight attack ends with the revelation of a mysterious voice—coming from the very monster he’s supposed to destroy.
What’s a guy to do? Dig into the mystery of secret files he received that point deeper into Procyon Foundation’s shadowy history. Hope he can find a missing operative. And keep up his guard against an insidious new enemy savvy enough to make friends with the old ones.
Because the Whisperer isn’t the only powerful being with an agenda.
And Mercury’s not about to let anyone he cares about get caught between them.
Mercury Hale is hunting Syndax, the evil soldiers bent on summoning astral fiends, when he finds himself reliving the trauma of his battle against the Hedron of Orbits. Suddenly his bravado, his boldness, and his abilities are called into question.
Meanwhile, Homeland Security dogs his steps as he and Loredana trace a mysterious mutated creature across the country, from the American heartland to the Florida coast.
Forces converge in the depths of the Atlantic, where Mercury races Syndax and Homeland to the source of the trouble, only to face his greatest enemy yet...
Some are nightmarish monsters best left to superheroes.
He's willing to continue the fight, until one day his bosses at Procyon Foundation come to him with a top secret assignment. He's whisked away to an underground base where Procyon conducts its cutting edge research. The mission: To become the first person to travel back in time.
The catch? Time doesn't want to cooperate.
Even the prototypes had their problems. The glitches don't dissuade Anthony from doing his duty. But when malfunctions pile up and he's forced into a terrible alliance in order to make a desperate trip back to the present, he'll have to decide where his true loyalty lies – and whether it's worth holding on to the past.
Mercury Hale’s dull day is interrupted by Dominic Zein and the rest of the Procyon heroes — the guys, that is. They take him across the world for a bachelor evening to relax after recent conflicts.
But an enemy reappears in a European nightclub, wielding a powerful weapon thought lost, one that can summon an ancient force capable of bringing the teammates to their knees.Or turning them against each other.
Mercury must uncover new allies and hunt down his friends, before they grind the resurgent Procyon into the dust, and before the wedding bells chime.
