Witchblood: The Ux-Blood Trilogy, Book II

Return to Earth in the second book of Charles Brass's thrilling Ux-Blood trilogy!

With the destruction of Earth Cell's portal, Maels Raptori has been trapped on Earth for nearly a century. But he has no memory of who or what he is, how he came to be stranded alone, and what the strange metal gauntlets on his arms are for. His wanderings lead him and his big friend Slobber into the employment as a mule for a wagon chief seeking to drive a ten-wagon convoy through the wilds to a distant city. Disaster strike less than a day's travel from completion, and Maels barely survives. But during his fight for life, he discovers secrets about himself, secrets that have been trapped along with the rest of his life behind the spells chaining his memories in his backmind.

Now, with his memories on the verge of breaking free, Maels comes face-to-face with visitors not of Earth. Some come as friends seeking to destroy the vicious tree spiders that haunt Earth's forests and stifle a return of civilization. Others arrive as foes, intent on rounding up the tree spiders to breed and sell them to allies across the overweb. Both sides, though, threaten humanity's recovery from ashes left behind by the Qrill invasion.

Fighting to stay alive, feeling the pressure of his time on Earth running out, Maels struggles to survive long enough to regain his memories and recover what was once his passion: serving as a Warden in the League of Cells and defending Earth from those who would do it harm. But can he alone stand against two separate threats that will do what it takes to smash the other, no matter the cost?

Terrorcruise

Quote:
A fast-paced science-fiction thriller, Terrorcruise provides plenty of action and suspense, and an ending that will leave your breathless!

The Unity Sphere, an alliance of worlds making a stand against the organized crime blighting the starlanes, breathed a sigh of relief when Hetz and his organization, the Black Diamond, perished in a surprise assault launched by the Unity Fleet.

Despite the overwhelming evidence, Tac-Team Commando Axel Fargo- his wife and friends victims of Hetzís predations- never really believed the ruthless terrorist died.

Now, intelligence gathered following a raid on a criminal outpost suggests the master terrorist is in fact alive and intent on resurrecting his signature crime: the terrorcruise. Hetzís earlier exploits nearly fragmented the Unity Sphere. A new success would shatter the nascent alliance and plunge countless worlds back into dark times.

In direct violation of orders, his future within the Unity Fleet at risk, Axel acts to position himself in Hetzís path, in a final desperate attempt to end the life of the man responsible for so much of Axelís pain.

But alone, without reinforcements, against overwhelming odds, Axel realizes too late his best may not be good enough. And this time, far more than his own life may be lost forever...
