Her choice was never a real choice so much as a shove for Chandra into the cold world outside with only a hawk that she’s not sure isn’t part of her imagination and her non-existent survival skills. The hardest thing Chandra will face is not those who want to kill her, but overcoming the darkness inside her that pushes her to keep killing.

But dogs can sense what can't be seen. And Bella and Pup sense courage and compassion inside Benny. Could this regular kid from Prickly Pear be the extraordinary hero Bella and Pup are searching for? The hero destined to rally the spirit of hope and unity against the forces of hate and cruelty. To find the answers, Benny will have to venture to the stars, to a world that astounds!

In a dark future the Confederation of Free Worlds is over-run by enemies both foreign and domestic. The ship of state is adrift, riding stormy seas, guided by subversives who hate the people of ConFree and seek the total destruction of the Confederation. National suicide is government policy. The NewFam invaders have seized control of much of society. The people are weak, helpless and leaderless, stunned by close to a hundred years of relentless hateprop from the alien enemy. Resistance is unthinkable. Something new and evil is emerging.

A new squad of Legion recruits is thrown immediately into the battle. The future looks hopeless for ConFree. The ConFree Legion is being disbanded and merged into the People's Militia, but the Legion is not quite dead. Four hundred years of service to the people of ConFree will not disappear quietly into the night. Is it indeed too late, or will the embittered new Legion recruits risk it all to do the right thing for the women and children of ConFree?

Seeker and the Pathways of the Gods — Book One

A savage tide of alien intruders are infiltrating the distant reaches of the Deadvac and the Icy Way, enslaving millions of kidnapped, brainwashed innocents. As the aliens approach the Outvac the young troopers of the ConFree Legion confront them. Commander Seeker and Recon 16 enter the Farside seeking exploitable vulnerabilities in the enemy. They discover that the Spirit Shifters are powerful psychics seeking human souls. Recon is joined by the biogens, who know all about slavery.

The Shifters' advanced science is far superior to human technology. And when they take your mind, flesh, blood and future, all that is left is to fight or to die. As full-scale war erupts into the Outvac, Seeker and his biogen wife vow to liberate the innocent and kill their captors. They have no intention of living as slaves to a foreign race, and the Legion motto is Victory or Death.
