ARISEN Book One – Fortress Britain
When the Zombie Apocalypse came, one country had shut down its borders in response to a major terrorist attack. Now Fortress Britain is the last bastion of the living – with 50 million beleaguered survivors facing down a world of 7 billion animated corpses.
And when civilization fell, one international team of supremely elite special operators was being assembled for a nearly impossible mission, deployed out of the SAS barracks at Hereford. Supremely trained and armed, always the most skilled, resolved, and unstoppable amongst us, now the commandos of Alpha team are humanity’s last best hope for survival. Searching through the detritus of fallen Europe, scavenging pharmaceutical labs for clues to a vaccine that might bring humanity back from the brink, now they are tasked with one last desperate operation.
They must cross the Atlantic aboard the world’s only remaining supercarrier, insert by air into the very middle of a dead continent, and then fight their way on foot through a city of 3 million ravening dead guys. But these Zulus will not be like any zombies they have ever fought before… ARISEN
Hope Never Dies.
In the far future, mankind lives safe and secure behind the Chronos Ring – an automatic defense system that encircles the area of space occupied by human beings. The Ring keeps out all of humanity’s enemies – in particular, a vicious race of reptilians known as the Parsnaak.
On the outer fringe of human-occupied space is the planet Muse, an entire world dedicated and established as a colossal museum – a storehouse of antiquities and relics from the ancient histories of both men and aliens. There, Ian Lotus, a man with his own mysterious past, has chosen to live in deliberate obscurity, harboring secrets that could reshape mankind’s destiny.
Now, the impossible has happened: the Chronos Ring has been breached – rendered inert – and Lotus finds himself no longer able to hide in the shadows as he becomes the object of a massive interplanetary manhunt. However, his problems go well beyond simply being the most wanted man in the galaxy. There’s also the approaching Parsnaak invasion fleet to deal with, as well as an enigmatic, extra-dimensional being of immense power who, for reasons unknown, wants Lotus dead.

Over time, society began to rebuild itself. Now it is ready to judge those responsible for the Plague. Nella Rider, the court psychologist and Frank Courtlen a defense attorney are trying to establish the truth. But more depends on it than they know. They race to find the answers they need before the fragile remains of humanity vanish for good.

An old war machine and a revolutionary space capsule will change relations among the ten species forever

Their newest customers are the xenophobic Sureriaj. But when a protest over offworlder trading shuts down all business, the crew’s only hope is to leave the planet delivering emergency medical supplies. The contract is for too much money, the seller is using a false name, and the cargo is magically sealed. Nothing could go wrong.
The First Majus in Space
The ten species are in awe of the first space capsule. But when the majus piloting it is assassinated, Origon Cyrysi is the only one able to complete the mission. Too late, he finds the spacecraft may cost him his abilities. And even if Origon returns from space, the escaped assassin might still trigger an interstellar war. Either way, the fuel is burning.

Armed with a bugout bag and a fierce determination, she sets out on a harrowing journey with her best friend Drew and her roommate Anna.

New Orleans certainly has no shortage of vampire legends and Lucy Soriano was sure she had heard them all. But after a date with a handsome stranger takes a deadly turn, Lucy learns that the truth is more terrifying than fiction, and that the real monsters are not the creation of vivid imaginations, but evolutionary advantage.
After surviving the attack that should have killed her, Lucy is recruited into an elite organization of vampire hunters and learns that vampires are not the only ones with evolution on their side. But despite her own mysterious genetics, Lucy is not a soldier and vampire hunting does not come naturally. Her dangerous improvisations are quickly called out by Andre Garnier, a hunter who makes no secret of the fact that he is opposed to Lucy’s recruitment. Adding to her worries is The Eyes of The Sun, the oldest and most dangerous collective of vampires, who are once again gaining ground and have infiltrated the very organization that is trying to stop them.
Now, Lucy and Andre are forced to work together. Not only to keep New Orleans safe, but to stay alive.
Unfortunately, The Eyes of The Sun have an agenda that no one was expecting.
