Access points to the ship's controls are sealed, the systems that guide her automated and out of reach. Until a malfunction forces his engineer wife to the edge of the habitable zone to inspect the damage. Until she contacts him, breathless, to tell him she found a body, and it doesn't belong to anyone on board.
When the Earth Republic is savagely attacked, they recruit the universe’s most dangerous minds to retrieve their stolen warships. But as this ragtag group of criminals embarks on a suicide mission to fight for their lives and freedom, an even bigger threat emerges….
The enemy is coming. The enemy is already here. For years they’ve prepared, plotted, and planned. For years they’ve waited to strike from above and below. Earth is under siege. The enemy covers the landscape. Proxima is unharmed. But that’s about to change. No armies can stop this menace, and no defenses can slow the advance. We are scattered and isolated. We are ignorant and weak. No help is coming. No help remains...or does it? Old heroes will sacrifice everything. New heroes will rise.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Three days. That’s what they promised. But on Earth, the danger is unrelenting, and promises are hard to keep. Now Sheriff Duke is the one on the run, chased by an unexpected enemy eager to finish what they started. An enemy with an agenda that begins with killing him but ends with something worse. Much, much worse. Once the secret is out, the universe will never be the same.
Series finale! The universe is on the brink of disaster, and the fate of the galaxy rests on Queenie and her Rejects. Too bad they're stuck in enemy territory light years from home. Too bad their ride was stolen. Too bad Satan is the one who took it. Too bad for the bad guys, that is. All rise for the queen!
Two hundred years ago, a fleet of colony ships left Earth and started a settlement on Proxima Centauri. Centurion Space Force pilot Nathan Stacker didn't expect to return home to find his wife dead. He didn't expect the murderer to look just like him, and he definitely didn't expect to be the one to take the blame. But his wife had control of a powerful secret. A secret that stretches across the light years between two worlds and could lead to the end of both. Now that secret is in Nathan's hands, and he's about to make the most desperate evasive maneuver of his life.
Queenie is back and better than ever! Abbey's recent experiences have changed her, but is it for the better? She's learned the truth about the Seraphim, and General Kett's betrayal has left her to wonder if there's anyone outside of the Rejects she can trust. When the Nephilim begin their assault on the Republic and her daughter is caught in the cross-fire, she'll have no choice but to depend on Captain Mann to do what he can to help. As much as Abbey wants to go home, she has an entire galaxy to protect.
Queenie and the Rejects have found the Covenant, but it isn't anything they thought it would be. Never to be the one to give in, she has a new plan to fight back against Thraven and his armies, one that depends on beating the Nephilim at their own game. She's got the best of motives and the best of intentions, but, then again, the road to hell is littered with both. It's time to go big or go home, and the Rejects don't have a home.
When the going gets tough, Sheriff Duke gets tougher.He’ll have to if he’s going to survive long enough to see justice done. The monsters infecting the forgotten Earth don’t sleep, and neither can he. There’s no time to rest. There’s no time to recover. The clock is ticking, the stakes are rising, and if he fails it’ll be more than his wife and child that are caught in the fallout. It’ll be the whole world.

Earth. After the invasion. The planet is in ruins. Humankind struggles to survive. Hayden is a Sheriff in a world without law. A good man in a world gone bad. He knows the fallout of an alien attack when he sees it. He's never seen anything like this before. Isaac is a Marine in a world without order. A good man with troubles of his own. His mission was to protect the innocent, including his son. Instead, he's the only survivor.
Once. Just once. Sheriff Hayden Duke would love to get involved in a mess that didn’t blow up into an all-out disaster. Not this time. His hunt for clues has led him to more questions and a whole heap of new trouble: He lost his horse, his newest ally is a wanted man, and the enemy he’s chasing isn’t the enemy he expected. They’re worse. Much, much worse. They say no good deed goes unpunished. It's time for Hayden to punish back.
Sheriff Hayden Duke was born on the starship Pilgrim, like his father, and his father before him. He expects to die any second. He's already been attacked by demonic aliens, rogue soldiers, and even the people he thought were his friends. He's survived. Barely. He's entered a strange new world. A world he knows nothing about. A world where hope has been buried beneath the claws of monsters and the boots of a tyrant. They took his wife. He has to find her. He has to survive. Another second. Another breath. He can never give up. He can never rest until she's back in his arms.
Conor Night, the world's only necromancer, has finally learned what it means to be the world's only necromancer. It’s a lesson he wishes he had never received, because thanks to him an ancient wizard with an apocalyptic agenda is back in business, ready to finish cleaning house. Even worse? He’s the only one who can stop it. He’s been living on a roll of the dice for years, but the stakes have never been higher, and the outcome never so clear: To save the world, he has to die.
Sheriff Hayden Duke was born on the starship Pilgrim, like his father, and his father before him. He’s got a long way to go before he can rest. But how can he when the entire world is under siege? By demonic aliens. By a brutal thug who calls himself King. By an unknown and powerful threat that may be responsible for the end of humankind. The road may be long. The odds may be bad. The stakes may be high. You can’t keep a good Sheriff down.
For Sheriff Duke, the danger has reached the final countdown. Captured, tortured, beaten, but undefeated, it’s 60 seconds to midnight, and the only way to save his wife and daughter is through the fugitive he left home to hunt. But the real enemy isn’t what they seem, and the history of the forgotten Earth is about to be rewritten. Will any of it matter if there’s no one left to read it?
A menacing wasteland. A destructive new weapon. A planet on the edge of catastrophe. Sheriff Duke can’t rest. There’s no time to slow down. The threats are unending. The enemy unyielding. If he wants to stop the apocalypse, he’ll have to cross a treacherous wasteland where the cannibals and murderers are the least of his worries, and the creatures infesting the landscape aren’t the most dangerous thing in his path. The race is on, the doomsday clock is counting down, and if he fails it will be more than his wife and child that are caught in the fallout. It’ll be the world.
Two hundred years ago, aliens invaded Earth. A violent war followed. The enemy won. Some of us escaped, most of us didn’t. On Proxima they flourished - the invasion forgotten. On Earth we floundered - the horror began. Their world is advanced, peaceful, and secure. Our world is broken, savage, and overrun. A new invasion is coming. A hunger that has swallowed half the universe. They don’t care which planet we live on. They want to end us all. But where there is life, there is hope. And where there is hope, there are heroes. This time, vengeance will be ours.
Conor Night, the world's only necromancer, is starting to think that his life is finally coming together. His last job not only left him funded, but also helped him fall off the radar of the world's two most powerful wizards. Of course, being a necromancer always has its downsides, and when he's forced into a job that will leave the Houses on the brink of all-out war, he begins to realize just how down those sides can be. He thinks he understands the rules in the world of ghosts and magic. Unfortunately for him, the rules are about to change.
One thousand years ago, the world was broken and reborn beneath the boot of a nameless, ageless tyrant. He erased all history of the time before, enslaving the people and hunting those with the power to unseat him.
