The Hive

HIVE-ebookcover (2)The Hive is the sequel to The Second Predaxian War and will be in print soon. Believe me that I don’t write that fast! I had some delays with my cover art but am making up for it now.

A period of relative galactic peace is dawning at the end of The Second Predaxian War. Now Dave Brewster can confidently resume his mission to found a thousand new colonies for the Council of Humanity. With the assistance of his team and their new allies on Tak-Makla, success seems assured. Unfortunately, the life of an explorer is never that easy.

Join Dave again as he returns to Tak-Makla and makes a discovery that will change the course of mankind forever. Walking through the corridors of The Hive with its ten billion spider-like agents, the last thing he expected to find is a beautiful young woman. What she tells him will contradict everything he knew about human life and evolution, upend the balance of power in two galaxies, and ultimately lead to an unimaginable journey to another galaxy.

The Hive is a story of redemption. No matter which planet we come from, we all bear the scars of our brutal and tyrannical pasts. Our darker side can reappear anytime people become complacent or apathetic. The advances of science and technology only improve our ability to control and manipulate our brothers. Can any of us ever break free of the past and be truly noble and just? The odds are stacked against Dave and Fa-a-Di this time.

The Second Predaxian War

The sequel to Showdown Over Neptune is now in print. The Predaxian Emperor, Nokalez Zendo is featured on the cover. Isn’t he pretty?

SPW-ebookcover (2)Follow the adventures of Dave Brewster and his friends in the sequel to Showdown Over Neptune. The Predaxian Alliance, led by Emperor Zendo, has invaded Greater Gallia in their drive to enslave the galaxy. The first invasion attempt was pushed back, but not before too many brave soldiers were killed or taken prisoner. Now the Predaxians are coming back with their entire fleet, heavily outgunning the forces of Gallia, Kalidus and Earth.

The Second Predaxian War begins at a time of apparent turmoil within the Alliance, as a rising tide of dissent is turning public opinion against the Emperor, who has imprisoned his own son for opposing his imperialistic ways. Can those Predaxians be counted on to help bring down the Emperor, or is this just a lure into a trap?

In order to find new allies and resources, Dave is sent on a mission into unexplored space. Along the way, he discovers another maklan civilization that has developed the most powerful technology the universe has even known. Can they be convinced to help end the carnage and bring peace to this side of the galaxy? Dave’s friendship with Fa-a-Di, De-o-Nu and Jake Benomafolays will be put to the test to find out!
