by Timothy C. Ward
Forbidden Memories. Ancient Powers. Galactic Uprising.
Long ago, the Rucien people were spirited away to the safety of a distant planet. The discovery of technology that uses memories to fold space has brought back the danger they left millennia ago.
Now Cullen, the exiled son of the Rucien Star General, is given a way home. But first, a mission: rescue a family from prison and escort them through a jungle full of genetic experiments gone wrong. No problem.
In their escape, Ehli and her son, Emmit discover strange powers and the dark secret behind Ehli's husband's death. As an ancien
In the future, sand divers search the depths for the lost city of Danvar and the truth behind their bleak existence. Divemaster Rush hasn’t dove since he lost his infant. A job offer turns from an escape to a trap and the lure of a hardened heart to survive like anyone else would. One dive leads to another. Farther and farther from the surface, death and evolution change his world. He’ll have to change too or watch his wife rise without him.
Inspired by Hugh Howey’s world of Sand, but stands alone without needing to read Sand. Written and sold with his permission. Scavenger: Evolution takes the landscape of Dune and throws in the pacing and thrills of Alien.
A compilation of Scavenger 1-3 (Red Sands, Blue Dawn and Twin Suns).
On the day that changes everything, James wakes up to his usual struggles: school, basketball aspirations, and the reminder of his father’s death in service to his country. An unlikely friend will challenge him, offering a different perspective on the legacy left by those who’ve loved us, but whom we’ve lost. James doesn’t understand how one who loves you could leave you behind, but if the answer is courage, then he doubts he has what it takes to make the same kind of decision.
Yet as a new enemy rises to the surface of their world, he must use the example set by his father, and take full advantage of the life and lineage that his father saved, and he must rise to his own challenge.
Godsknife: Lineage is a short story prequel to the novel, Godsknife: Revolt, set during the events preceding
