Description : What will the next global conflict look like? Find out in this ripping, near-futuristic thriller. The United States, China, and Russia eye each other across a twenty-first century version of the Cold War, which suddenly heats up at sea, on land, in the air, in outer space, and in cyberspace. The fighting involves everything from stealthy robotic–drone strikes to old warships from the navy’s “ghost fleet.” Fighter pilots unleash a Pearl Harbor–style attack; American veterans become low-tech insurgents; teenage hackers battle in digital playgrounds; Silicon Valley billionaires mobilize for cyber-war; and a serial killer carries out her own vendetta. Ultimately, victory will depend on blending the lessons of the past with the weapons of the future. Ghost Fleet is a page-turning speculative thriller in the spirit of The Hunt for Red October. The debut novel by two leading experts on the cutting edge of national security, it is unique in that every trend and technology featured in the novel — no matter how sci-fi it may seem — is real, or could be soon. Praise for Ghost Fleet‘A wild book, a real page-turner.’ The Economist ‘Ghost Fleet is a thrilling trip through a terrifyingly plausible tomorrow. This is not just an excellent book, but an excellent book by those who know what they are talking about. Prepare to lose some sleep.’ D. B. Weiss, writer of HBO’s Game of Thrones ‘It’s exciting, but it’s terrifying at the same time.’ General Robert Neller, commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps
Description : Heroic pilots must rely on their psychic gifts, archaic swordsmanship, and advanced combat training to survive deep space dogfights and bloody close quarters melee. They step up to defend the universe, and then come back to a harem of beautiful women, if they survive. Pretty good deal for a couple of top gun starfighter jocks. They've put down terrorist insurgents, gone kill for kill with mercenaries, and taken out drug dealing cartels. They even captured one of history's most notorious all female space pirate crews and added them to the harem on board Hard Rain. All of which means nothing to the relentless undead ships that emerge from deep space and begin rampaging across the free-fire zones. Merciless fleets of hideous starships launch a campaign of wanton slaughter and callous destruction, and it soon falls to the crew of the Hard Rain to stand against them. Soon it becomes clear that the fate of the universe is in the hands of a select few, one of those being Corwin. His psychic talents have grown to tremendous levels, and with the help of his deadly lover Precious, his best friend Tank, and his unlikely ally Queen Dredge, the Starwing pilot has to step up and save the universe from certain doom as the darkness between the stars unleashes a cavalcade of terrors upon civilization. No pressure.

Description : The Devil's Ghost Fleet.Because of the first instant birth of the Gods and their subsequent mutation and amalgamations, some became rulers of darkness, while others of light. Eventually, creation capped evolution by the introduction of the vicegerents of the land, humans, such that conflicts of interest and disputes ensued as they evolved along sides their Lords. Therefore, a class of archangels was charged with disciplining and taming the people.While the Creator cared for the Cosmos, his angels ferried between Heaven and Earth. Some made contact with the ordinary whom they taught vice and magic, others with choice prophets and messengers to whom they brought the word.Ever since those contests continued to shape Man and the world across destiny. Thus, wars became the means by ways of which the planet developed, where humans are the harvest and the Devils the reapers.Nonetheless, however, Christ is his own Anti, because it was He who wrote mercy upon himself and his subjects when He decided to evolve clemency and passion through them. Yet the Adam Family had to be coaxed into mastering their own fate and reality. As such, nothing could have made more sense than for God to partition his soul, hence His Anti who coerces people into action. But for him to do so, He had to erupt wars throughout history; the wars of the antichrist.Meanwhile, the Shiva and Vishnu who command the Ghost Fleet invade the nations of the world, one by one. Jannes and Jambres continue to comfort Aroot and Afoot and assist the Antichrist in their conquests. Eventually, Satan enters the world in the flesh and provokes the Armageddon, but that is when Jesus leads the Muslim Armies in defeating him before the invasion of the Gog and Magog, Israel at the ends of times.
