Cover Launch: FORGOTTEN WORLDS by D. Nolan Clark

Behold, the marvelous cover for FORGOTTEN WORLDS by D. Nolan Clark, the action-packed second novel in the Silence trilogy, an epic space adventure tale of fighting against terrible odds – and the terror of realizing that we’re no longer alone in the unforgiving dark of the universe.

Forgotten Worlds

Aleister Lanoe has won a stunning victory against the alien armada that threatened Niraya, but it’s not enough to satisfy his desire for vengeance. He won’t rest until he’s located the armada’s homeworld and reduced it to ashes.

Yet his personal vendetta will have to wait. Lanoe now faces a desperate race against time, and the merciless Centrocor corporation, if he’s to secure the Earth’s future – and discover the truth he seeks.

The battle is over. But the war has only just begun.

After centuries of devastating interplanetary civil war, mankind has found a time of relative peace.

That peace is shattered when an unknown armada emerges from the depths of space, targeting an isolated colony planet. As the colonists plead for help, the politicians and bureaucrats look away.

But battle-scarred Commander Aleister Lanoe will not abandon thousands of innocents to their fate.

New Acquisition: Forsaken Skies by D. Nolan Clarke

Forsaken Skies, the first book in a space opera trilogy by D. Nolan Clarke, brilliantly brings the premise of Seven Samurai to a war-torn galaxy of factional disputes, unpredictable characters, and battles against the odds.

This is the unmissable start to a new epic space adventure that will thrill fans of John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War and James S. A. Corey’s Expanse.

A silent, shadowy armada has emerged from the depths of space.

Its target is a backwater planet, where a religious sect lives in peaceful exile far from the politics of mankind. Faced with imminent destruction, these acolytes must now seek help from the very civilization they left behind.

When their pleas for assistance are ignored, they have little choice but to put their faith in a ragtag group of pilots – each of whom is already battling their own demons. These pilots are among the very best the universe has to offer, but even they cannot hope to defeat an entire armada. 

Yet sometimes the few must stand against the many.

Acquired by Orbit in a three-book deal for World English language rights from Russell Galen of Scovil Galen Ghosh Literary Agency, book one, Forsaken Skies, will hit shelves in Fall 2016.
