Alternate Cover for Abhuman: Revelation

Revised Cover

I was tinkering with a more fantastical feel. Something that evoked Cheska’s innocence, yet captured the darkness she would embrace. This cover is NOT in print (yet).

Here’s the background alone

Abhuman: Resistance (The Covenant – Book 2)

Cheska has the power to save them all, but only if she can save herself first.

She may be the most powerful Abhuman every born, with the power to bend space & time. Most fear her. A few seek to control her. Her powers pale compared to the evil theocracy that has enslaved her people.

Genetically engineered to emerge within the enslaved human population, Cheska is haunted by the terrible responsibility thrust upon her. Now that her powers have fully manifested, new memories emerge, and surging emotions threaten to tear her apart.

She never asked for this. Never wanted this. The resistance say that she is their salvation, that only she has the power to fulfill the prophecy and deliver them all from slavery. But she’s already lost almost everything, and they want to take even more?

When the resistance receive a distress call from Cheska’s mother, still up on their cityship in orbit, Cheska demands to be on the rescue team. If she has the power to save her people, then she’s determined to start with her mother.

Betrayed, she makes a harrowing journey through a planetary superstorm, only to find her people already doomed.


She has one shot to save them all, but at what price?

Star Viking – Coming Soon!

Star Viking – Coming Soon!

I’m hard at work on the third book in my Tribes Of Yggdrasil series. Here’s a sneak peek!

This very short story is an introduction to my novel “Star Viking – The Tribes of Yggdrasil: Book 3”

In this intro, we catch up with the history between Star Fury (Book 2) and the current novel, as eight years have elapsed.

NOTE: Don’t feel like reading? Scroll down and listen to me read it for you!


Star Viking – Prologue

Eight years have passed since the Hrymar slavers obliterated the human colony of Norvik. The Hrymar didn’t stop at a single colony. They set their sights on the Earth herself. And they came, visiting ruin and destruction upon her greatest cities – one craven human was to blame.

 

Once the traitor was identified, Haldor Olsen hunted him mercilessly across the stars, finally putting a stop to the billionaire’s unspeakable experiments on humans and other sentient races. Yet, it was a hollow victory. No victory would bring back Haldor’s wife and young son – they were dead…as far as he knew. Then came the death of his lover Eva’s unborn child – his child.

 

Meanwhile, The Solar Inclusive Democracy, weakened by internal strife and politicking, refused to act to prevent further Hrymar incursions into allied space. Haldor decided that he would do what others could, or would not, do. With his old friend, former-Governor Drew Zelinski, they founded Rig’s Vaka (Heimdall’s Vigil) to stand as a first line of defense against the dark forces.

 

Part outpost, part fortress, Rig’s Vaka became a home to Olsen’s Privateers. They sought out and harried the Hrymar, disrupting the slave-trade, and bringing war to the enemy’s homes and colonies for the first time. Men and women, and even other races, flocked to Haldor’s banner. A diverse lot, they all had this in common: an icy desire for justice, and a fiery need to live a life with honor. These things Haldor promised them. And delivered.

 

As Rig’s Vaka’s worth was proved time and time again, crushing the enemy in space and on land, other governments sought alliances and pacts. With the help of the Alfar, Rig’s Vaka began fielding newly designed classes of starships; some for fighting, others for commerce.

 

Though Haldor kept the wolves from Earth’s doorstep, the SID remained factious. After years of tension and secret military build-ups, several of the strongest factions tried to seize the Prefabricated Colonization Module factories on Mars. The PCMs were crucial for rapid expansion beyond the Solar system, and ultimately, ensuring the future of the Human race. This contest sparked The Industrial Conflict of 2130 which raged for nine months, shattering the Martian economy.

 

After the Industrial Conflict, four new home-worlds were established beyond the solar system: New Mecca (Mecca J’adeeda), an Islamic Theocracy; The Soviet Socialist Empire (Sovetskaya Sotsialisticheskaya Imperiya), a Socialist Dictatorship; Mang’s Republic of China (Mang-Zhonghua), a newly minted Socialist Monarchy; and The Republic, a Plutocratic colony of North Americans governed by the Corporate Congress. These four stellar forces began competing with the SID for resources, gravely weakening the ability for humanity to defend itself.

 

The SID, aware of their weakened position, and recognizing the success of Rig’s Vaka, signed a mutual defense pact with Haldor Olsen’s forces. Because of this, Haldor and Drew Zelinski, concluded that a more formal martial authority needed to be established. And so, they founded The Council, to be governed by an elected Jarl, or Chieftain. Haldor was unanimously elected as the first Jarl of Rig’s Vaka.

 

Now part Warlord and part Viking, Haldor’s days are filled with his quest for justice.
