Back of the Book
A black hooded figure suddenly appeared behind her. She gasped and her brown eyes grew wide. Nathan watched helplessly as a small trickle of blood fell from her mouth. Other hooded figures appeared; their silver swords clutched upright against their chests. Nathan held tight to her lifeless body while trying to fight back the tears that swelled in his eyes. "No," he cried. "No!"
Nineteen-year-old Nathan Urye is supposed to be having a relaxing summer as a camp counselor but ever since he started having nightmares about a beautiful girl being hunted by flesh-clawing monsters, his life has been anything but normal.
Soon, Nathan discovers that the sleepy college town of Cahokia Falls is far from ordinary when two unexplained deaths rock the town and campus. Who or what is behind the murders? Does it have anything to do with the newly-discovered cave symbol? And what about the spine-chilling campfire stories about ancient tribal beliefs and mystical legends?
For Nathan Urye, things just keep getting creepier and creepier, and now it appears that everyone at camp is in danger…
"My name is Jules Hooker. I have lived through a few crappy moments in my life—and with a name like Hooker, you can just imagine—but nothing, nothing, compares to the two intensely and world-shatteringly crappy things that happened to me this last June.Three, I guess, if you count Gilbert.After my boyfriend dumped me on the day I thought he was going to propose, I’d have to say two other really bad things happened last June. The first would have to be the dead body I discovered in the rental house in France where I went to get over being dumped. The second—and very possibly I should have led with this—was the dirty bomb that exploded over the Riviera throwing me and everyone else in France back to the 1950s.So now I’m stranded here—trying to make a living by solving murders the old fashioned way — without help from DNA, databases, CSI crime labs or the police.And I’m doing it in France.Where I do not speak the language.During the apocalypse.Sound like fun?"
Sergeant Kendra Pacelli is innocent, but that doesn’t matter to the repressive government pursuing her. Mistakes might be made, but they are never acknowledged, especially when billions of embezzled dollars earned from illegal weapons sales are at stake. But where does one run when all Earth and most settled planets are under the aegis of one government? Answer: The Freehold of Grainne. There, one may seek asylum and build a new life in a society that doesn’t track its residents every move, which is just what Pacelli has done. But now things are about to go royally to hell. Because Earth’s government has found out where she is, and they want her back. Or dead.

For fifty years the Human Alliance and the Krokator Star Empire have been locked in a cold war, neither side willing to return to the open conflict that raged for centuries. Though uneasy, the peace has been amicably maintained–until terrorist attacks against both powers, leaving the Alliance’s capital shattered and the Emperor dead, threaten to reignite hostilities.
From the Alliance, the task of hunting down the perpetrators falls to intelligence officer Major John Gresham, whose background offers not only insight into galactic terror cells but also anonymous access to the labyrinthine defense establishment. The Empire sends Akgu Zurra, unquestioningly loyal and determined to hunt down those who murdered his sovereign. Their investigations lead in the same direction, forcing the two into unwelcome cooperation as they try to disrupt the network of their common enemy.
But that enemy, known only as the Forbidden Army, isn’t just a well-organized group of malcontents from the alien slums – they enjoy resources that suggest their funding comes from connected insiders on both sides. Gresham and Zurra may distrust each other, but justice means exposing powerful figures as traitors and the attacks as part of a broader plot to destabilize the galactic order. If those traitors can’t render the investigators ineffective, they’ll settle for dead.
The Forbidden Army is the first book in The League of Planets Adventure.
