Titles By John Walker
The civilization of man has fallen. A mindless alien race has swept across the colonies, consuming structures and people along the way. As humanity stands on the brink of destruction, we have one hope to preserve what’s left of our culture and very lives. The Passage.
One of the greatest scientific achievements of humanity, a gateway that will hyper-accelerate our faster than light drives so we can cover an unimaginable distance. A new home waits beyond, one far from our aggressors. But can we escape the desolation of our old empire before it’s too late?
Gareth Weston travels with a ragtag group of criminals and soldiers, intent on exploring a secret military base. They hope to uncover something to help them with their struggle against the alien aggressors, anything to give humanity an edge in the coming weeks. What they find instead is a mausoleum with something far more horrifying than they ever imagined.
Meanwhile, Admiral Thomas Gaston works to bring together the allies of humanity in an effort to push back the enemy forces through traditional warfare. But with his one fleet, he finds himself on the run. With no prospects, few hopes, and dwindling resources, they stumble upon a survivor from Earth. One who may hold the key to their survival, or confirmation of their doom.
But they aren’t the only ones on the hunt. Old enemies pursue a similar path while threats on the surface both conventional and otherwise bar their path. Every member of the human crew will find themselves tested, pushing them to the limits as they fight not only for their objective but their very lives.
Elsewhere in the universe, the hunt for the mystical Prophet continues. A POW struggles to unify other prisoners in an effort to escape and a Prytin vessel finds itself behind enemy lines, squaring off with a dangerous foe.
Meanwhile, the away team stuck on the mobile pirate fortress must fight to survive a lawless environment that may self-destruct at any moment. Stuck waiting for their data to download, desperate to find the means to escape, they find themselves once again in a deadly game against a mob intent to find profit at any cost…including lives.
Meanwhile, the Peck twins are embroiled in struggles with their own. Oliver finds himself on the verge of death on a remote planet surface far from any aid. Rita and her companion Lisa Erris dive into data about the mysterious Karl Petrova in an effort to uncover his efforts in the frontier. All the while, the enemy is hot on their tail, desperate to take them into custody.
Meanwhile, Rita Peck and Lisa Erris return to confederate space, determined to uncover the conspiracy that has hidden the existence of the alien threat for years. When they visit a stomping ground of confed intelligence, they find themselves hunted by a desperate group of criminals who will stop at nothing to collect their marks.
When they uncover a pirate haven long thought to be little more than a rumor, they become the unwilling participants in a deadly game. One that will test their resolve and the skills of their away team. As they strive to acquire the necessary information to continue their journey, a dogged enemy arrives to muddy the waters, threatening to end them once and for all.
The crew of the TCN Triton look to uncover the secrets of the Kahl artifact they’ve brought on board. With a hint of what comes next, they turn to the expertise of a Vorka field scientist, a scholar of history. He resides on a quiet settlement in Rhulin space, a place where he might study in peace.
But the Kahl have other plans, laying siege to the world. With the the scientist on the run and multiple vessels battling near orbit, this quiet researcher has become the center of attention. With more on the line than a few lives, the humans and their allies must conduct a daring mission to not only recruit their VIP but to save the entire settlement in the process.
Meanwhile, behind enemy lines in the Kahl empire, a lone intelligence agent continues her hunt for the elusive Prophet. Pushing her way into the graces of a suspected criminal, she looks to move her way up the ranks so she might silence this rebel faction once and for all.
War brews on the horizon and the crew of the TCN Triton get caught in the middle. When they answer a distress call from one of their colonies on the edge of their space, they end up outmatched and outgunned by an unknown force. This conflict may well push humanity into a new age…or spell the beginning of the end for their race.
Meanwhile, two archaeologists work to uncover evidence of alien life on a far off planet. As they make what might be the biggest discovery of the human race, their activities trigger an alert, drawing dangerous forces to investigate. Cut off from any quick help and on their own, they must use every trick at their disposal to stay alive.
All the while Rita Peck finds herself the unwilling guest of Tobin Loch, the pirate who believes she owes him for the botched job that put her on this path. Alone, seemingly without help coming, she plans her own escape. Unbeknownst to her, several allies are en route, ready to put their lives on the line to liberate her.
These men and women find themselves in a race against time, a desperate bid to save the galaxy as they know it...or die trying.
Meanwhile, the imperial government reels from the assassination attempt on King Malnik Keth. He has stepped up, shedding the ties of those who tried to control him in an effort to gain total control over his kingdom. As a seemingly innocent man rots in their prison, he must decide if he wants to risk the truth coming out after punishing him or hunt down the true culprits.
Back on Earth, Icarus Rising increases their attacks, inching ever closer toward their ultimate objective. Their eyes are on the Agency headquarters and everything within. A tense waiting game may culminate to an ultimate battle between the terrorists and the military…or it could all be ended in a swift raid on a lonely cottage in the hills.
But lives are on the line. A conspiracy must be unravelled. Forces both foreign and domestic work against them, pushing toward some victory state they have yet to uncover. As various battles come to a head, the crew of the Morrigan may well have to put everything on the line in order to preserve all they hold dear.
