Rebel Cause

Author: E.E. Isherwood Narrator: Steve Marvel Release Date: March 2020

America is down, but never count it out It has been said America is impossible to conquer because there are guns behind every blade of grass. But what if no one was left to pull the triggers? The Minus America series imagines this world. The story continues . . . Ted and Emily flee the enemy, but the noose continues to close, even as he makes contact with his niece. While rescuing her is always a priority, he might have a lead on the nuclear briefcase stolen from him on day 1. Hard choices are ahead. Tabby accepts her family is gone, but she has no intention of giving up her home. Does she have what it takes to fight back against an enemy hidden behind technological superiority? Dwight finds himself at the tip of the spear of the enemy invasion. He may be powerless to stop it, but he begins to think he might be able to slow it down. Continue the journey with these last few Americans as they explore what's left of their homeland, dutifully avoid the spreading infection of the invasion force, and take the first tentative steps toward a rebellion. Unlike wars for freedom in the past, they have no allies and no reinforcements. It's time to see what they're made of.

Rogue Planet Audiobook

Rogue Planet

Author: John Andrew Karr Narrator: John Skelley Release Date: February 2020

The mission: make Mars inhabitable for humans with a thermonuclear reawakening. But for the adventurous remnants of the Space Consortium of America, the biggest threat isn't from the erupting rage of the Red Planet. It's from a treacherous blue marble called Earth . . . ROGUE PLANET You'd think Captain Ry Devans was a hero when he jumpstarted the cores of Mars, giving the previously dormant planet a fresh start at harboring life. But he's also the host of a life-saving alien microbe, and the most wanted man within thirty-three million miles-courtesy of the terrorist global juggernaut the Earth First Faction, and its sociopathic agent Paton Schiflet. They're doing everything in their power to quash the organized inhabitation of space and keep the last humans under control. Now that the EFF has dispatched its own insanely weaponized crew, Devans and his dirty-dozen team have three options: fight, surrender, or witness the extinction of the thousands of civilians repopulating space. For Devans and outlaw partner Dr. Karen Wagner, option number one is is the only way to go-but the odds against them are astronomical. Not only are moles undermining every offensive tactic, but some on MOS-1 are exhibiting dangerously psychotic mood swings. Is it just an extreme case of space crazy? Or a new microbial gift from Mars that could kill their mission before the war with EFF even begins?
