 THEY KNOW WHAT WE’VE DONE.

Cameron Bannister and his group of survivors have endured the fall of their great city, gone searching for what they once believed to be a weapon … but found to be something else entirely. It’s something that will decide the fate of all humanity — innocent or guilty — if Cameron can summon the will to start the doomsday clock ticking.

Accompanied by a strange wanderer with a hidden past, they must confront the judgment archive at its new location in the “capital of capitals”: Ember Flats, on the former site of Giza, beyond the infamously unpassable wasteland known as Hell’s Corridor. But when they arrive, all is not as it seems … and the viceroy, along with the secret society hiding within her government, is keeping secrets that keep the city calm — while unrest boils beneath its skin.

When a double-cross threatens the group’s center, only a risky plan might save the species before judgment comes … or bring the walls crashing down as the epoch ends in extinction.

This relentless, page-turning tale of colonization and alien empire is the fifth in the Alien Invasion series by masters of story Truant and Platt, authors of The Beam, Robot Proletariat, the Dream Engine series, and many more.

Fight for hope. Search for survival.

 FIND THE MISSING. FEAR THE FOUND.

Three months have passed since the space fleet’s arrival, but very little has changed in the skies above planet Earth. Motherships still hover without word, impervious to attack and communication. Spherical shuttles still ferry about, their intentions unclear. But the abductions of select humans have ended and most of those taken have been returned — dazed, incoherent, and prophesying glory or doom — but back home where they belong. All but nine. Worldwide, only nine seemingly unconnected people remain missing. Trapped in their besieged bunker outside Vail, Piper, Trevor, Lila, and Heather wait for one of them.

All of this has happened before…

For his entire life, Benjamin Bannister has sought the connections that unite the planet’s wonders: Egypt’s pyramids and Stonehenge, the Band of Holes in Peru and the Cambay Ruins. For years he’s pursued evidence that extraterrestrial life is not new to Earth, but has left its footprints in the archeological records over and over again. For years, he was dismissed as a fool. But now the spheres have arrived and Benjamin has found his vindication … along with troubling theories as to what it all means. Benjamin’s research facility rests beneath the mothership in Moab, Utah — but Vail, Colorado is where his interests lie. He’s sent an emissary to Meyer Dempsey’s ranch to find the answer to a question: What makes the Missing Nine so special to the planet’s silent invaders? What news will those Nine bring when they return? And what, as the motherships again begin to move like pieces finding positions on a chessboard, will happen next?

…and it will all happen again.

Vail and Moab, Moab and Vail — two epicenters in the cold alien war. The locations’ fates (and the fates of those bunkered at each) seem somehow intertwined as Earth’s clock ticks toward midnight. The roads and communications have been closed, but now it seems that the planet’s future might depend on a journey from one to the other at all costs. Humanity must find the value of those who have been taken … or become mere fossil evidence for the archaeologists of the future to puzzle over.

This relentless, page-turning tale of first contact is the second in theAlien Invasion series by masters of story Truant and Platt, authors ofThe Beam, Robot Proletariat, the Dream Engine series, and many more.

 HUMANITY ISN’T ALL THEY LEFT BEHIND.

Two years later, the world lives in fragile peace. But a clandestine search has begun … and a clock has started ticking.

Two years after first contact, Astral forces have established their fragile kingdom around the globe. Motherships occupy the cities. Shuttles patrol the lawless outlands. The pacifist class of Astrals known as Titans assist humans in running their alien empire, while bloodthirsty Reptar peacekeepers ensure that order is kept. And unseen in the ships above, a third class of visitor calls the shots — the unseen Divinity, worshipped and feared by citizens in equal measure.

Meyer Dempsey sits on his plinth as Viceroy of Heaven’s Veil, on the old site of Vail, Colorado. As with other Viceroys in the eight other world capitals, humanity’s remains revere Meyer almost as a god.

But below the surface, both colonies and outlands have begun to crumble with unrest.

Until now, the rebellion has been quiet. Now, desperation bubbles as they learn the Astrals have begun digging for an ancient device buried beneath the glowing blue Apex at Heaven’s Veil.

But twin truths of the forthcoming alien war (or a possible alien apocalypse) have dawned at Benjamin Bannister’s facility in Moab, sending plans into action:

The Astrals have lost what they hoped to uncover.

And humanity’s only chance is to find it first.

This relentless, page-turning tale of colonization and alien empire is the third in the Alien Invasion series by masters of story Truant and Platt, authors of The Beam, Robot Proletariat, the Dream Engineseries, and many more.

A young woman with a little girl’s dream. Two handsome suitors. And an adversary determined to crush her before she stands a chance.  

Lily Whistler has a dream, birthed from the fanciful Parisian memories of her late mother: to open a floral shop called La Fleur de Blanc, selling only white flowers. Back home in Kansas, such a fairy tale notion could never survive … but in the fashionable seaside town of Cielo del Mar, Lily has gambled her inheritance that it will.

At first, the lavish Palms Couture shopping center seems like the perfect place to start again. The weather is beautiful; the vistas of the ocean are breathtaking; the customers are elegant and wealthy. There are even two men who’d suit Lily’s fancy if she had time for romance: charming Len, who operates a fine food cart, and the dark and brooding Matthew Vitale, who runs Bella by the Sea — an elite restaurant that hosts only a few couples per night at an exorbitant price.

But the one thing Lily didn’t anticipate was a nemesis: Kerry Barrett Kirby, who owns an upscale furniture store across the courtyard. Kerry seems determined to crush Lily for a reason Lily can’t imagine … and has the power and connections at the Palms Couture to make it happen.

Lily only has one chance to make her shop work — a tall feat, considering the prior shops Kerry has driven out of business, and the way the Palms always bows to Kerry’s will. But Lily’s charm has bought her a handful of unlikely allies … and as Kerry will find out, quiet little Lily Whistler has more than a few country girl tricks up her sleeve.
