El cúmulo globular de Akasa-Puspa, en un futuro distante: mundos remotos, en el abismo del espacio intergaláctico. Un pequeño universo de diez millones de soles, tan cercanos entre sí, que los viajes interestelares son posibles incluso con la tecnología más elemental; sacudido por continuas olas de civilización y barbarie; en cuyos planetas se alzan las babeles: colosales torres que dan acceso al espacio. El último imperio que dominó Akasa-Puspa se encuentra en decadencia y Khan Kharole, el general bárbaro, lucha por mantener la civilización en sus confines. Para ello, deberá aliarse con Srila, supremo líder religioso de Aksa-Puspa, que aspira a la supremacía de la Hermandad sobre los restos del Imperio. Ajeno a toda intriga palaciega, Jonás Chadragupta, es un científico que investiga el origen de la Humanidad en Akasa-Puspa, ¿cómo llegaron los primeros humanos hasta allí y en qué circustancias?; pero ha sido reclutado para una misión en una remota zona del cúmulo, donde hallará la sorprendente y espectacular respuesta a este enigma.
An ancient prophecy. A dark family secret. A promise to a dying sister. On a Pennsylvania mountain road, young Caroline Hartmann encounters the mysterious Baron Merrick von Hayden who has traveled from Germany to wed her older sister in a marriage contract between the two families. The beautiful Ilse allows herself to be swept off her feet and taken to Europe, only to learn the Hartmanns and von Haydens possessed dark powers that had faded over time. Convinced she has conceived the spawn of the devil who will cause death and destruction with supernatural powers, Isle slips into madness as she pleads for her sister to take her baby back to America. Unaware of the sinister maze of dark secrets and forbidden passions around her, Caroline devises a clever scheme to pass the baby off as her own and escape. But terrible secrets are revealed and dangerous threats are made against her life. "A unique tale of sensuality with fascinating characters in an intriguing plot." —Jill Marie Landis
They never saw it coming. The most technologically advanced missile defense system in the world ... Thousands of eyes, both human and artificial intelligence trained on the Axis of Evil - North Korea and Iran. The one direction they didn't look, was up. Nuclear Armageddon hangs over America like a mighty sword as The Lone Star Series continues with book two, BEYOND BORDERS. American political leaders failed to heed the warnings as two bullies of the world unite. North Korea and Iran - the Axis of Evil - bring the battle to American soil. Most of the country is without power and the new President must decide whether to retaliate and risk escalation of hostilities, or focus on recovery to minimize loss of life. Through careful, prudent planning and protection of their power grid, the state of Texas emerged relatively unscathed from the EMP attack. But what now? New borders are defined. Americans will try to cross them. Texans will defend them. Author Bobby Akart masterfully intertwines historical fact with plausible fiction in this post apocalyptic EMP thriller, BEYOND BORDERS. The Lone Star Series is a thought-provoking, gut-wrenching look into a post apocalyptic country devastated by nuclear destruction. Would you be ready to make the tough decisions to protect your family and survive? AUTHOR'S NOTE REGARDING PG-13 RATING The Lone Star Series does not contain strong language.
It is intended to entertain and inform audiences of all ages, including teen and young adults.
Although some scenes depict the realistic threat our nation faces from an EMP attack and nuclear destruction, and the societal collapse which will result in the aftermath, it does not contain graphic scenes typical of other books in the post-apocalyptic genre. I believe more of our young people need to lead a preparedness lifestyle. Studies show that our millennials do not have any of the basic survival skills. By writing this series free of vulgarities and gratuitous sexual innuendo, I've intended it to be suitable for everyone. Thanks.
