In the tradition and values of C.S. Lewis, with mental warfare on the scale of Asimov's Foundation and Empire, and featuring the gripping battles and surprising twists reminiscent of Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game, Primal Screams is a thought-provoking, heart-pounding science-fiction adventure that explores the essence of good and evil while tackling profound ethcial dilemmas of our time: cloning, planetary conservation, biological agents, nanotechnology, faith, and family.
Unexpectedly caught in the middle of a centuries-old conflict between two warring empires, Zach Marshall defeated a cunning and ruthless Krontor captain, Crimson, and saved Earth and Ptain from her nano-engineered plague. But the price was high. While Zach was revered by billions on two worlds, everything he loved had been taken from him and his faith had been shaken to its core. In the aftermath that followed, Zach had journeyed to Ptain as Earth's ambassador to try to secure a future for humanity (and himself), and Crimson had gone rogue in search of Zach and Earth and revenge.
Primal Screams, Book 1, is the story of Zach Marshall's struggle to overcome his personal demons while searching for the faith and courage to once again face his nemesis and the future. Nothing is as it seems in this high-stakes, interplanetary game of power and intrigue. In the epic battle that ensues, Zach must face Crimson in a very personal battle and in a desperate race against time to save everything.
