All Six Void Wraith Novels on Sale for 99 Cents Each!

Two Trilogies. One Great Story. Incredible Audio.

DestroyerMankind’s outer colonies are disappearing. Without warning. Without a trace. Fleet command chalks the attacks up to pirates, but Captain Dryker of the UFC Johnston isn’t buying it.

Defying command, he leads his misfit crew into hostile territory in search of answers. They encounter the mythical Void Wraith, an unstoppable legend whispered by the first race. After 26,000 years the Void Wraith have returned to begin the next Eradication. Their technology is superior, their motives unclear.

Humanity cannot stop them. Not without help. Captain Dryker’s only hope is to forge an alliance with mankind’s greatest enemy, the savage Tigris.

One maverick captain, an unlikely crew, and an aging vessel are all that stand between humanity and the Eradication.

“It’s like Battlestar Galactica and Mass Effect had a baby, and that baby was raised by Starcraft. I read this book in one sitting, and immediately looked for the next.”- The author’s totally biased friend.

All six Void Wraith books are on sale for 99 cents each through May 31st on Amazon! If you haven’t already picked up all six, now is a great chance to do so!

Spellship Released on Audiobook!

The third book in the Magitech Chronicles, Spellship, has been released on Audible!

SpellshipThe Last Dragonflight holds the key to survival.

Voria, Aran, and Nara survived their trip into the Umbral Depths. They retrieved the Talon and are now searching for the First Spellship, the key to victory in their war against the Krox. Their search leads them to Virkonna, the home of the Last Dragonflight, a world where dragons still rule. The world where Aran was born.

Aran’s past finally catches up with him, and he is forced to answer for killing Khalahk. The Wyrms demand he undergo a March of Honor, a brutal trek that few survive. Nara must not only accept Aran’s fate but use it as a distraction to locate the First Spellship. Voria must forge an alliance with the ancient and arrogant Wyrms of the Last Dragonflight before the Krox do it first.

If even one of them fail, Krox will rise and the sector is doomed. Even success will carry a heavy price….
