Ever since contact was first made between humans and the alien idomeni, tensions between the two races have been frequent and bloody. As the first genetically altered human-idomeni hybrid, former Captain Jani Kilian serves as a lightning rod for the anger, outrage, and hatreds of both sides. And now the ex-soldier finds herself in the unwanted role of diplomat—serving the interests of her hybrid enclave, Thalassa, the only place in the universe that welcomes renegade humans, hybrids, and aliens alike.

But the all-powerful Commonwealth intends to bring Thalassa to its knees, and the time for diplomacy is at an end. With death surrounding her, Jani Kilian must return to where her nightmare began and once again take on her most powerful persona: warrior. For as the game approaches its inevitable conclusion, she knows only two options remain: victory . . . or extermination.

The Deadly Seeker Returns is a fast action sci fi novel sequel of The Deadly Seeker where a biochemical humanoid robot ravished the ranches of Idaho and Montana seeking a Venusian child abducted by a Soviet space probe. The novel takes the next step beyond the probe that infuriated the Venusians enough to send a space craft to Earth manned by a Deadly Seeker. The Deadly Seeker Returns follows a rebellion within the under surface community on the planet Venus by a group of biochemical robots where one escapes in a spaceship and crashes into Earth on Californias Saddleback Mountain. The rebellious creature goes on a killing spree, terrorizing the county, as it sets up beacons to guide his followers to Earth. After the humanoid beast hideously kills his brother, State Park Ranger Brad Evans and a member of his staff, Ranger Julie Adams, resolve to avenge his death. Brad is motivated by his mentor, a university professor, and his mothers silver medallion found on his dead brother. Heeding kind words of his mentor, Brad turns remorse and anger into willpower and determination. Brad and Julie follow a trail of killings that takes them through the cities, foothills, canyons, and mountains of Orange County California, discovering romance along the way. With the help of a pudgy deputy, an Air Force colonel, and the U.S. Forest Service, they corner the creature in a fiery battle on a remote tree covered mountain top. The significance of the medallion and the motivation of his mentor lead Brad toward the annihilation of the Deadly Seeker and further his closeness to and affection for Julie.
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “Prepare to be entranced by this addictively readable oral history of the great war between humans and zombies.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
We survived the zombie apocalypse, but how many of us are still haunted by that terrible time? We have (temporarily?) defeated the living dead, but at what cost? Told in the haunting and riveting voices of the men and women who witnessed the horror firsthand, World War Z is the only record of the apocalyptic years.
 
The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. World War Z is the result. Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years.

THE INSPIRATION FOR THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

“Will spook you for real.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“Possesses more creativity and zip than entire crates of other new fiction titles. Think Mad Max meets The Hot Zone. . . . It’s Apocalypse Now, pandemic-style. Creepy but fascinating.”—USA Today
 
“Will grab you as tightly as a dead man’s fist. A.”—Entertainment Weekly, EW Pick 
 
“Probably the most topical and literate scare since Orson Welles’s War of the Worlds radio broadcast . . . This is action-packed social-political satire with a global view.”—Dallas Morning News
