During the last interstellar war, the Brood almost wiped out humanity. Now they're back and they've brought powerful allies. The bio-augmented super-soldiers of StarForce must mobilize the human race for total war. Unfortunately, the people they protect think that the Federal Stormtroopers have a greater threat than alien monsters. And they might just be right.
The Armageddon Protocol is a thrilling grimdark military SF by the author of Space Wolf and the Macharius trilogy.
"Immediately convincing, classically brooding," Steve Tompkins, TheCimmerian.com
WHO IS KORMAK?
To the world at large, he is a mercenary and assassin, a brutal killer with a deadly blade. In reality Kormak is a Guardian, one of an ancient order sworn to protect humanity from the servants of the gathering darkness.
Kormak is a sword and sorcery hero in the tradition of Conan, Solomon Kane and Druss the Legend, a driven man with a mission to hunt down the ancient demons who slaughtered his family. His fast-paced, action-packed adventures take him from one end of his richly detailed fantasy world to the other.
THE SECOND KORMAK OMNIBUS
From the rat-infested streets of nightmare-haunted Vermstadt to the ruins of the greatest of all Dwarvish nations and beyond, Kormak must battle demons and monsters and the worst evil of all, that which lies within the human heart.
The Kormak Omnibus compiles three of Kormak’s greatest adventures into one massive volume packed with action, adventure and magic.
CITY OF STRIFE
A sinister conspiracy brings the great city-state of Vermstadt to the edge of civil war. A brutal murderer slays the poor and eats their hearts. A plague of supernaturally intelligent rats threatens to overwhelm the metropolis. The invincible Silent Man rises from his grave to kill again and again.
Join Kormak as he attempts to piece together the links between these terrible events and put an end to them before catastrophe befalls the city.
TAKER OF SKULLS
Kormak is ordered to guard the enigmatic sorceress Karnea with his life as she ventures into the Dwarven city of Khazduroth. It is a quest that begs many questions. What awful knowledge is Karnea really seeking amid the ruins of an ancient civilisation? Why has the sinister and mighty Old One known as the Taker of Skulls chosen this moment to return to the place where he was once worshipped as a god? And will anyone survive the deadly journey into the forsaken homeland of the once proud Dwarves.
Join Kormak as he battles his way through a gigantic underground city in search of one of the most dangerous secrets of the Old Ones.
OCEAN OF FEAR
The survivors of a burned out village set Kormak on the trail of the pirate known only as the Kraken. The hunt leads from the haunted ruins of a cursed city to the buccaneer stronghold of Port Blood and reaches a bloody conclusion far beneath the waves of the ocean. For the Kraken is a sorcerer with a deadly secret and he plans to waken the most powerful demon of the ancient world.
Join Kormak and his crew of bounty hunters as they battle pirates, sea monsters and ancient evils.

Illidan Stormrage is one of the most powerful beings ever to walk the lands of Azeroth. He is also one of the least understood. Behind his legend, beneath his enigmatic mission, lies a brilliant mind whose machinations are comprehended by few—and trusted by even fewer. Illidan’s righteous reign of justice and vengeance has begun.
Long ago, the night elf sorcerer Illidan infiltrated the demonic Burning Legion to ward off its invasion of Azeroth. Instead of hailing him as a hero, his own kind branded him the Betrayer, questioning his intentions after he appeared to aid the demon lords. For ten thousand years, he languished in prison—vilified, isolated, but never forgetting his purpose.
Now the Legion has returned, and there is only one champion who can truly stand against it. Released from his bonds, Illidan prepares for the final confrontation in the alien realm of Outland, gathering an army of grotesque fel orcs, serpentine naga, cunning blood elves, and twisted demon hunters to his side. He alone knows what deeply hidden motives guide his hand; he alone understands the price that must be paid to defeat the enemies of creation. Yet as before, he is assailed by those who see his schemes as a cynical quest for power, including the night elf Maiev Shadowsong, his former jailor. Warden Shadowsong and her Watchers have pursued the Betrayer to Outland to exact retribution for his crimes, and she will not rest until Illidan is in her custody . . . or in his grave.
