Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: The Mavericks Who Plotted Hitler's Defeat
Giles Milton - 2016
The guerrilla campaign that followed was every bit as extraordinary as the six men who directed it.

Another, William Fairbairn, was a portly pensioner with an unusual passion: he was the world's leading expert in silent killing, hired to train the guerrillas being parachuted behind enemy lines. Led by dapper Scotsman Colin Gubbins, these men—along with three others—formed a secret inner circle that, aided by a group of formidable ladies, single-handedly changed the course Second World War: a cohort hand-picked by Winston Churchill, whom he called his Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare.Giles Milton's Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is a gripping and vivid narrative of adventure and derring-do that is also, perhaps, the last great untold story of the Second World War.

Seal Investigations Series
Lola Silverman - 2016
5 books and NO cliffies! Book 1: JASE I did not work my ass off to become a Navy SEAL because I had a desire to add the title of “nursemaid” to my resume. So when my commanding officer requested that I go check up on his baby sister, I was understandably less than thrilled. Just because Rachel’s roommate thinks that Rachel got herself kidnapped doesn’t make it true. Rachel is notorious for her bad decisions and I have no doubt that Rachel’s equally silly roommate has likely blown things way out of proportion. Book 2: BRECKIN Tasha Campbell is bar none the most fascinating female I’ve ever met. The woman could eat metal and spit nails. She’s smart, tough, and determined in a way that I haven’t seen in anyone but my SEAL brothers. I never intended to let her get embroiled in my investigation, but she sort of weaseled her way in and then managed to prove to me that we need her. Book 3: MARLON I’ve never been the type of guy to shack up with a woman for a long term relationship. I never saw myself as a marriage and family type of man. But the second Marina Reyes showed up right smack in the middle of my recon at Baltimore Harbor, she got under my skin in a way that won’t quit. I knew Yates was sending me someone with inside information. I had no clue that Marina’s information came from so far inside. When I think of what they did to her while they held her I want to tear them apart with my bare hands. Book 4: DESMOND Every SEAL team member has their own special brand of bad ass. Mine is all about jumping in before I look. I’m the guy that’s always up for anything. Life is no good unless you’re living large and taking risks. That’s probably why I didn’t flinch when the others suggested I break into a dirty accountant’s home in the middle of a party. Who doesn’t love a good party crash? Book 5: ALEXANDER When I first decided to squeeze information from Agent Isabella Rockwood, I had forgotten what a kick she is to my libido. The woman practically sweats my personal brand of pheromone. She’s smart. She’s sexy. And she won’t tell me a damn thing I need to know! It drives me insane, but I can’t really blame her. My team and I aren’t exactly the most popular people in town right now. But when someone starts trying to kill us, Isabella and I will have to work together to avoid getting caught in the crossfire.

John R. Bruning - 2016
Bruning, a renegade American pilot fights against all odds to rescue his family -- imprisoned by the Japanese--and revolutionizes modern warfare along the way. From the knife fights and smuggling runs of his youth to his fiery days as a pioneering naval aviator, Paul Irving "Pappy" Gunn played by his own set of rules and always survived on his wits and fists. But when he fell for a conservative Southern belle, her love transformed him from a wild and reckless airman to a cunning entrepreneur whose homespun engineering brilliance helped launch one of the first airlines in Asia. Pappy was drafted into MacArthur's air force when war came to the Philippines; and while he carried out a top-secret mission to Australia, the Japanese seized his family. Separated from his beloved wife, Polly, and their four children, Pappy reverted to his lawless ways. He carried out rescue missions with an almost suicidal desperation. Even after he was shot down twice and forced to withdraw to Australia, he waged a one-man war against his many enemies -- including the American high command and the Japanese--and fought to return to the Philippines to find his family. Without adequate planes, supplies, or tactics, the U.S. Army Air Force suffered crushing defeats by the Japanese in the Pacific. Over the course of his three-year quest to find his family, Pappy became the renegade who changed all that. With a brace of pistols and small band of loyal fol,lowers, he robbed supply dumps, stole aircraft, invented new weapons, and modified bombers to hit harder, fly farther, and deliver more destruction than anything yet seen in the air. When Pappy's modified planes were finally unleashed during the Battle of the Bismarck Sea, the United States scored one of the most decisive victories of World War II. Taking readers from the blistering skies of the Pacific to the jungles of New Guinea and the Philippines to one of the the war's most notorious prison camps, Indestructible traces one man's bare-knuckle journey to free the people he loved and the aerial revolution he sparked that continues to resonate across America's modern battlefields.

Hunting the Nazi Bomb: The Special Forces Mission to Sabotage Hitler's Deadliest Weapon
Damien Lewis - 2016
Nothing terrified the Allies more than Adolf Hitler’s capacity to build a nuclear weapon. In a heavy water production plant in occupied Norway, the Führer was well on his way to possessing the raw materials to manufacture the bomb. British Special Operations Executive (SOE)—Churchill’s infamous “Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare”—working with the Norwegian resistance executed a series of raids in the winter of 1942–43, dropping saboteurs to destroy Hitler’s potential nuclear capability: operations Musketoon, Grouse, Freshman, and finally Gunnerside, in which a handful of intrepid Norwegians scaled a 600-foot cliff to blow the heavy water plant to smithereens. Nothing less than the security of the free world depended on their success. The basis for the movie, The Heroes of Telemark, starring Kirk Douglas and Richard Harris, this true story is more harrowing than any thriller, and “Lewis does the memory of these extraordinary men full justice in a tale that is both heart-stopping and moving” (Saul David, Evening Standard).

RYDER For a year, Alicia has been expecting her dark secret to catch up with her. What she isn’t counting on, however, is for that secret to end up endangering an innocent baby. Nor is Alicia at all prepared to be suddenly thrust into Ryder Grant’s path when his company, Blake Security, is hired to protect baby Celia and her family. Ryder is just as shocked when he comes face-to-face with Alicia and immediately feels a powerful connection with the beautiful Russian woman. Soon, Ryder becomes as determined to solve her mystery as he is to figure out what Alicia’s connection to the kidnapping might be. TYLER Tyler Petit has spent 17 years trying to forget his painful past. As a teenager, he did something so unthinkable that he was forced to flee from everything and everyone he had ever loved. In particular, when he ran, he left behind Ariana Douglas, the love of his young life. Then a phone call brings Tyler home for the first time in almost 20 years and his path crosses with Ariana’s once more. The love is still there, but there are so many secrets and so much time and pain in between the former couple that it will take a miracle to bring them together again. LEIF Leif Thompson isn’t your average guy. Some might even say he’s a little strange. Spending months pretending to be a different man, so he can exchange letters with a woman he’s loved from the first accidental letter he received after a mix-up, definitely qualifies. When that woman, Karli, finally meets Leif and he blurts out the truth, there’s no chance she’s going to forgive him for such a huge deception. ABRAHEM Abrahem Hakim has always quietly worked in the background at Blake Security Investigations. He likes it that way. But his boss, Blake, has other ideas and starts drawing Abrahem back into the world through a series of school talks about his war experiences. Specifically, about the experience where he lost his leg. And that’s how Abrahem meets Matt, a young boy who is also missing a leg, along with a father figure. Through Matt, Abrahem meets the boy’s beautiful sister, Mindy. She immediately sparks something in him he never thought he would feel, after all he saw in Afghanistan numbed him to life. But Mindy has her own demons she’s fighting, demons that threaten to tear her and Matt away from the fragile new life they’ve just barely begun to establish. BLAKE Blake has remained alone and aloof, holding everyone at a distance to avoid revisiting deeply embedded pain. Then Roxy drives into his life one cold, strange night, and Blake’s world is upended as he’s drawn into her own personal tragedy and sets out to help her, as he has so many others. Only this time, everything is different. In the end, maybe this one case will be what changes Blake’s life for the better, if he lets Roxy into his heart. And if he can keep her alive long enough to learn to trust again …

America's War for the Greater Middle East
Andrew J. Bacevich - 2016
Bacevich provides a searing reassessment of U.S. military policy in the Middle East over the past four decades. From the end of World War II until 1980, virtually no American soldiers were killed in action while serving in the Greater Middle East. Since 1990, virtually no American soldiers have been killed in action anywhere else. What caused this shift? Andrew J. Bacevich, one of the country’s most respected voices on foreign affairs, offers an incisive critical history of this ongoing military enterprise—now more than thirty years old and with no end in sight. During the 1980s, Bacevich argues, a great transition occurred. As the Cold War wound down, the United States initiated a new conflict—a War for the Greater Middle East—that continues to the present day. The long twilight struggle with the Soviet Union had involved only occasional and sporadic fighting. But as this new war unfolded, hostilities became persistent. From the Balkans and East Africa to the Persian Gulf and Central Asia, U.S. forces embarked upon a seemingly endless series of campaigns across the Islamic world. Few achieved anything remotely like conclusive success. Instead, actions undertaken with expectations of promoting peace and stability produced just the opposite. As a consequence, phrases like “permanent war” and “open-ended war” have become part of everyday discourse. Connecting the dots in a way no other historian has done before, Bacevich weaves a compelling narrative out of episodes as varied as the Beirut bombing of 1983, the Mogadishu firefight of 1993, the invasion of Iraq in 2003, and the rise of ISIS in the present decade. Understanding what America’s costly military exertions have wrought requires seeing these seemingly discrete events as parts of a single war. It also requires identifying the errors of judgment made by political leaders in both parties and by senior military officers who share responsibility for what has become a monumental march to folly. This Bacevich unflinchingly does. A twenty-year army veteran who served in Vietnam, Andrew J. Bacevich brings the full weight of his expertise to this vitally important subject. America’s War for the Greater Middle East is a bracing after-action report from the front lines of history. It will fundamentally change the way we view America’s engagement in the world’s most volatile region.Advance praise for America’s War for the Greater Middle East“In one arresting book after another, Bacevich has relentlessly laid bare the failings of American foreign policy since the Cold War. This one is his sad crowning achievement: the story of our long and growing military entanglement in the region of the most tragic, bitter, and intractable of conflicts.”—Richard K. Betts, director, Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies, Columbia University “An unparalleled historical tour de force certain to affect the formation of future U.S. foreign policy . . . Every citizen aspiring to high office needs not only to read but to study and learn from this important book. This is one of the most serious and essential books I have read in more than half a century of public service.”—Lieutenant General Paul K. Van Riper, U.S. Marine Corps (Ret.) “Bacevich asks and answers a provocative, inconvenient question: In a multigenerational war in the Middle East, ‘Why has the world’s mightiest military achieved so little?’ ”—Graham Allison, director, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, and Douglas Dillon Professor of Government at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of GovernmentFrom the Hardcover edition.
Kurt Schlichter - 2016
Now, as the former blue states begin to collapse under the dead weight of their politically correct tyranny, a lethal operative haunted by his violent past undertakes one last mission to infiltrate and take out his target in the nightmarish city of Los Angeles, deep in the heart of the People’s Republic of North America. National Review’s Jim Geraghty calls Kurt Schlichter’s “People’s Republic” “a surreal, fast-paced journey through a dramatically different America but less than a generation away. … Violent, imaginative, full of mordant humor and dark, gritty details, you won’t want to live in this People’s Republic…but you’ll feel a chill as you wonder how different our real future will be.” Author and television host Cam Edwards says “Kurt Schlichter's ‘People's Republic’ is a roller coaster ride through a post-election Hellscape that will leave you wanting more.” Radio host Hugh Hewitt say “Schlichter puts a whole flight of Black Swans in the air --each of them plausible-- and the result is a riveting, page-turner, and a demand from Schlichter for...more.” “People’s Republic” is the first novel by Kurt Schlichter, a retired Army infantry colonel, a conservative radio and television commentator on the Fox networks and elsewhere, a Senior Columnist at Townhall,com, and a popular and hilarious Twitter raconteur. He's also a trial lawyer, so he has an intimate understanding of evil and deception. Radio host and commentator Ben Shapiro calls “People’s Republic “chilling,” and author and columnist David Limbaugh calls it “a thought-provoking action thriller set against the backdrop of a shattered America.” Fox News contributor and author Katie Pavlich says, “They say conservatives are terrible story tellers, but Kurt Schlichter destroys that stereotype in his new novel People's Republic and issues a dire warning about the future of America.” As with his prior book “Conservative Insurgency: The Struggle to Take America Back 2013-2041,” “People’s Republic” takes today’s news and projects the trends out into the future. Funny, frightening and action-packed, “People’s Republic” is a thriller that will make you think as well as keep you turning the pages.

THE CORBIN BROTHERS: The Complete 5-Books Series
Lexie Ray - 2016
Enjoy all 5 Corbin brothers books in this discounted bundle. Currently FREE with the Kindle Unlimited Program or $0.99. All full length books. No cliffies! HUNTER People weren't supposed to live through what I lived through, and most of the time, I wish I hadn't. I came away from military service fucked up beyond all recognition, slinking back to my family's cattle ranch in Texas to heal, my tail between my legs. Well, leg. Singular. My brothers hire Hadley Parsons to put me back together again, and she's the best of the best, tough and beautiful to boot. She won't take an ounce of bullshit and she's made it her mission to see me through my recovery one way or another. With her unconventional methods, I find myself looking forward to seeing her every single day. AVERY Our ranch has been in our family for generations and generations, and it's said that ranching runs in Corbin blood. If that's true, though, I must not be a Corbin. I've always dreamed of doing something different — anything different — from the ranch, but blood is blood, and I can't see my brothers' dream go under. But when the ranch faces a real threat, I don't have a choice but to do the unthinkable — enter into a marriage of economics with Paisley Summers, daughter of a wealthy rancher one property over. I've known Paisley since elementary school, but that doesn't mean I like her. Can we learn to love each other in this new arrangement, or will this marriage tear our families and our ranches apart? EMMETT I don't know what it's going to take for me to get noticed in this family, but I'm pretty sure it won't take very long to get my brothers' attention associating with one of the most notorious women in town. Peyton Crow is best known for granting instant gratification to lonely souls in town, but she's a lot more than she seems. Once you get past all the sex and conflict, she has a heart of gold and a love and understanding for horses that rivals my own. But will my brothers finally take my ideas for expanding the family ranch seriously? And will Peyton ever see that she's worth much more than anyone gives her credit for? TUCKER I have secrets in my past that need to stay there — things I don't talk about. But when one of those nightmares comes back to life, there's nothing I can do to hide those terrible things from my brothers any longer. Amelia Banks makes frequent appearances in my nightmares, both of us survivors of a sadistic serial killer from my time away from the ranch as a cop. I thought that was all over and done with — it had almost killed me and driven me crazy. But when Amelia shows up on the ranch, terrified that the killer is hunting her once more, I start to realize that some things are never really other. CHANCE I've been taking care of the ranch and my brothers ever since our parents died, and have watched my brothers pair off with women who love them one by one. I'd like to experience some of that love, too, but I only have eyes for one woman — who happens to be our housekeeper. It would be too complicated. There would be too many factors against us being together. But I can't get her off of my mind — even as our ranch suffers a brutal attack that might end the family business for us Corbins once and for all.

Hammerhead Six: How Green Berets Waged an Unconventional War Against the Taliban to Win in Afghanistan's Deadly Pech Valley
Ronald Fry - 2016
Led by Captain Ronald Fry, Hammerhead Six applied the principles of unconventional warfare to "win hearts and minds" and fight against the terrorist insurgency.In 2003, the Special Forces soldiers entered an area later called "the most dangerous place in Afghanistan." Here, where the line between civilians and armed zealots was indistinct, they illustrated the Afghan proverb: "I destroy my enemy by making him my friend." Fry recounts how they were seen as welcome guests rather than invaders. Soon after their deployment ended, the Pech Valley reverted to turmoil. Their success was never replicated. Hammerhead Six finally reveals how cultural respect, hard work (and the occasional machine-gun burst) were more than a match for the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

(Kneel Or Die - TKG 07 Review) What you know about Vampires and Werewolves is wrong. So Very, Very Wrong! Continue to adventures of one of Amazon's best loved series... Reviewer MistyDawn: "I'm surprised. I thought when I read the first book in this series, that it couldn't get better.... I was wrong. I read almost continuously, and for the past year and a half, I haven't read a series (or even one) book that I've loved as much. With such loyal characters, friendship, and badassery... just don't wait to start reading these. So just, just wow." **Please note, as mentioned in a review, there is flagrantly foul language in these novels. The main character does not have a problem with cussing, just uninspired cussing.

Kenna Coulby - 2016
CHRIS Dancing is my life, always has been. Even when a stalker started sending threatening letters, I didn’t think twice—until the threats intensified. I don’t have a choice but to partner with the hunky Chris, ex-Marine and private security agent. He says he only cares about my safety, but as things heat up between us, we both start caring about much more. Still, I don’t dare tell him the one secret nobody in my life knows… TERRANCE It’s been a year since my father’s death, a year since I took over the bar he left behind. The bar somebody set fire to after I refused to pay “protection” money to a group of thugs who terrorize the neighborhood. Now I need real protection in the form of Terrance, an ex-Marine who makes me believe in lust at first sight. I wonder what’s more dangerous—the men out to hurt me, or the man sent to keep me safe. MACK I was only trying to be a good employee when I stopped into the office late one Saturday night. I never expected to witness the murder of my boss, my mentor, my friend. The killer saw me. Now I feel like I have a target on my back. It’ll take a private, enigmatic security agent named Mack to protect me, though it’s not long before I want a lot more from him than protection. HAWK Imagine waking up in the hospital with no memory of how you got there. I’m an actress—you probably know my name. I’m used to crazy fans. But they never strangled me nearly to death. Not until this one. I need protection, and fast. When Hawk comes into my life, he’s just what I need to feel safe. Pretty soon, he’s just what I need in other ways, too. But as good as he makes me feel, there’s no escaping the knowledge that somebody out there wants me dead. And they’ll stop at nothing until they get what they want. ALEX I’ve worked with Alex King for years, and anybody who knows him as well as I do knows he still longs for the daughter he lost years ago—not to mention the wife he lost the same day. When he helps me with the case of a missing child, the past comes back to haunt us both—along with feelings we’ve tried to hold back for so long. It’s no use. We were meant to be. If only I could get him to let go of the past long enough to see that.

Dirk Patton - 2016

On orders of the President, he leads a Delta Force team to join up with a squad from the Australian SASR who are already on the ground. Together, they have one mission. Stop the wholesale slaughter of innocents by any means necessary. But, things are not as they seem. John is accompanied by a CIA agent who has a personal issue with him, as well as a mysterious specialist from USAMRIID, the US Army's laboratory for medical and biological defense research. Together, they encounter horrors that can only come from generations of tribal hatred. After witnessing unspeakable atrocities, none of the men will ever be the same.

D DAY Through German Eyes: Book One and Book Two
Holger Eckhertz - 2016
Almost all accounts of D Day are told from the Allied perspective. But what was it like to be a German soldier in the bunkers of the Normandy coast, facing the onslaught of the mightiest invasion in history? What motivated the German defenders, what were their thought processes - and how did they fight from one strong point to another, among the dunes and fields, on that first cataclysmic day? This book sheds fascinating light on these questions, bringing together statements made by German survivors after the war, when time had allowed them to reflect on their state of mind, their actions and their choices of June 6th. We see a perspective of D Day which deserves to be added to the historical record, in which ordinary German troops struggled to make sense of what was facing them, and emerged stunned at the weaponry and sheer determination of the Allied troops. Above all, we now have the unheard human voices of the individual German soldiers - the men who are so often portrayed as a faceless mass.

Carrier Pilot: One of the greatest pilot's memoirs of WWII - a true aviation classic.
Norman Hanson - 2016
THE CORSAIR LOOKED TRULY VICIOUS …’ In 1942 Norman Hanson learnt to fly the Royal Navy’s newest fighter: the US-built Chance Vought Corsair. Fast, rugged and demanding to fly, it was an intimidating machine. But in the hands of its young Fleet Air Arm pilots it also proved to be a lethal weapon. Posted to the South Pacific aboard HMS Illustrious, Hanson and his squadron took the fight to the Japanese. Facing a desparate and determined enemy, Kamikaze attacks and the ever-present dangers of flying off a pitching carrier deck, death was never far away. Brought to life in vivid, visceral detail, Carrier Pilot is one of the finest aviator’s memoirs of the war; an awe-inspiring, thrilling, sometimes terrifying account of war in the air. PRAISE FOR CARRIER PILOT 'Just outstanding. Carrier Pilot is up there with First Light and The Big Show as one of the best pilot’s memoirs of WWII.’ ROWLAND WHITE, AUTHOR OF VULCAN 607 'Hanson's thrilling memoir takes you right into the cockpit in a way few writers have ever managed. The lethal world of the wartime Royal Navy carrier pilot, with its casual and shocking violence, horrific attrition, yet extraordinary camaraderie is so vividly brought to life that one can almost smell the smoke, oil and sweat. Real, adrenalin-charged, and ridiculously dangerous flying, Hanson's account is an aviation classic that has to be read.’ JAMES HOLLAND, AUTHOR OF DAM BUSTERS and THE WAR IN THE WEST

Navy SEAL Izzy Zanella, his extended family, and his kickass teammates in SEAL Team Sixteen. The only easy day is yesterday. BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) training is known for being the toughest, meanest, most physically punishing program in the entire U.S. Navy, and a new crop of tadpoles have arrived in Coronado eager to prove their worth—to make it through Hell Week, and become U.S. Navy SEALs. Although Izzy prefers assignments out in the “real world,” he’s glad to be an instructor for the current BUD/S class, because it allows him to spend time at home with his wife, Eden, and her lively and lovable extended family. Eden’s sixteen-year-old brother, Ben, is dealing with a new crush and a homophobic bully in his high school, but it soon appears that things are not as they seem. Meanwhile, Eden’s other brother (and Izzy’s SEAL teammate and former frenemy) Danny Gillman and his wife Jenn have just had a baby who has colic and cries constantly. As Ben deals with the type of too-serious high school drama that could involve a body count, and Danny and Jenn juggle a new baby, lack of sleep, and postpartum blues, Izzy is intrigued by “Boat Squad John,” a misfit team of young SEAL candidates all named John, including the intriguing young Seagull, his swim buddy Timebomb, and Seagull’s nemesis Hans. Does Seagull have what it takes keep Boat Squad John still standing when the dust of BUD/S Hell Week settles or will they ring out? Set in Coronado during BUD/S training Hell Week, in Ready to Roll Brockmann introduces the SEAL officer and instructor nicknamed Grunge—Lt. Peter Greene—as she delivers what she does best: a story celebrating the U.S. Navy SEALs—and the women (and sometimes men) who wholeheartedly love and support them.

Crimson Worlds Collection III
Jay Allan - 2016
Erik Cain, Augustus Garret, and the rest of the high command are grimly satisfied that humanity has been saved from the First Imperium menace. There is no joy, however…no elation at the “victory.” The losses this time were too heavy…too personal…to bear. They had done what was necessary to win the war. Now they had to find a way to live with the gut wrenching decisions that victory had required. Garret needed time. Time for repairs, to replace losses, to learn how to go on in the aftermath of what he’d done. But the fleet wasn’t heading for a well-deserved rest…they were moving into another firestorm. A new menace, one as deadly as the First Imperium, was waiting, and it threatened to shatter the fragile alliance of the Earth powers and throw all human space into another desperate war…one that might be the final confrontation. On world after world, mysterious forces are invading, taking control of the most vital colonies. The invaders are well-drilled powered infantry, veteran forces that quickly shattered the planetary militias and established brutal occupation regimes. The leaders of the Alliance’s forces must rally themselves once again to face this new threat…an unknown enemy that is as well trained, experienced, and equipped as the Marines. Indeed, on some colony worlds rumors are already spreading that the invaders are the Marines themselves, that they have come to conquer, to rule… Even Legends Die Gavin Stark, the ex-head of Alliance Intelligence, and the bitter foe of the Marine Corps, has made his bid for power. The clone soldiers of his Shadow Legions have seized control of dozens of colony worlds, imposing his brutal rule over millions. His plan is no less than to subjugate all mankind. On Earth, Stark’s manipulations have brought the Superpowers to the brink of war, threatening the Treaty of Paris and its prohibition against terrestrial warfare. For a century, man had restricted his wars to space, but now the Powers are sliding closer to the brink…the final battle that could kill billions, and turn Earth into a wasteland.

Star Force: Lost Destiny
Aer-ki Jyr - 2016
Their father was murdered, leaving them sitting in their spaceship waiting for his return. They remember almost nothing from before that time, when two Calavari who were business associates of their father took them in and told them they could never be seen outside their full body armor. They've honored their father's dying wish, living and working on the Calavari's farm while exploring the barren wastelands looking for bits of technological salvage from the time before the great cataclysm. They don't know they're Human, just that they're different and they can't show their skin in pubic. The two siblings have lived almost their entire lives in their self-styled body armor and dream of leaving the farm and doing something that mattered...but there's nowhere to go. Nothing to do. Then one day that all changes and Esna is set forth on a rollercoaster ride of a life she could never have expected once the word 'Human' is once again spoken on the planet...only its a word of rage and fear, with the local aliens trying to kill whoever it is applied to, though they've never seen one before. Regardless, the word is tagged to her and she must run...with a little help. -------------- Excerpt from 'Lost Destiny': “Donovan!” he called out, running towards him with plodding footsteps as his nose picked up the scent of burnt flesh even before he saw the hole in the chest plate of the full body armor the man wore. Whatever race he was his blood flowed a sickly red, a fact that he’d prefer to not have known as he leaned over and gripped the man’s shoulders, prying him up into a sitting position. “What happened?” A shaking hand rose up to the neck of his armor, fumbling for the latch that Yammar finally helped him with. The helmet cracked opened with a hiss and the Calavari helped him pull it off, revealing the pale skin beneath that had alarmingly become even more so, now nearly white. “Gladers,” he said, wincing horribly as he half bent over. “Jumped me from behind. I got two of them, but the third…” “Where’s the latch for the chest piece?” Yammar asked, pulling back the cloak that covered most of the hard plates as he looked, but the man took a death grip on his lower arm and locked eyes with him. “My children. In the ship. You have to…please. I’m all they’ve got. They’re dead without you.” “Where’s the latch?” he repeated, searching around with his other three hands and finally finding something that looked promising. He pressed and turned the small button, being rewarded with another hiss as a crack formed along the side beneath the man’s left arm, but suddenly that arm went straight to Yammar’s giant head and gripped it tightly, forcing him to look into the dying man’s eyes. “Promise me. Promise me…” he said, wincing again. “I don’t know anything about your race,” Yammar said, feeling helpless. “Good…” the man spat in a cough but no blood came out of his mouth, though it was continuing to pour out of his chest and seep down over his waistband plates in spurts every time he jerked in pain. “Good. Don’t ask questions…just…make sure they wear armor…in public. Promise me.” “I promise.

Separated from his squad, he scrambles to reunite with his men in time to catch the only way home, but meets one obstacle after another. From their first moment in Germany, as Dunn’s men execute their mission, things go inexplicably wrong.
