Command Authority (The Last Hunter #5) – J. N. Chaney and Terry Mixon
Victory snatched from the jaws of defeat.
Commodore Jack Romanoff and his ragtag crew have repaired their ancient battleship, scattered their adversaries at New Copenhagen, and discovered what was really behind the invasion. Now they must make the enemy bleed and begin liberating the cluster.
Betrayal from the shadows.
When someone unexpected conspires against him, Jack must keep his ship and crew united and safe. If he fails, someone powerful that should have had his back will stick a knife into it, and the aliens will enslave or exterminate them all.
Honor or victory? Can he have both?
The Last Stand (The Guardian Covenant #1) – Kevin Ikenberry and Chris Kennedy
One last chance to save the world!
When the first asteroid was spotted heading toward Earth, no one thought much about it. But then a second one was found, and then a whole string. One might have been happenstance… but thirteen was enemy action!
But who was responsible for them? With asteroids bearing down on the U.S., China, and Russia, all the nations that could have done it were unlikely to have been the ones who actually caused the apocalypse headed toward Earth.
It was bad when the asteroids began hitting the planet, devastating the areas where they fell… but when 35-meter-tall monsters began climbing out of the impact craters, things quickly became far, far worse. And when they were found to be immune to most conventional weapons, everything went completely into the toilet.
With the alien hordes dominating the land and sky, though, humanity did what it did best—it created the Guardians, massive mecha that were able to take the battle to the aliens, and rushed them into production. But with four continents already about to fall, there was just one question—would they make a difference?
Slayers #16 – Hajime Kanzaka
So, a virtuoso sorcerer and a master swordsman walk into a bar…
Yeah, you’ve heard this one before.
The locals immediately hit ’em up for a job because they look sooo powerful and the town’s just that dang desperate for help.
In the case of Atessa, city of blacksmiths, there’s apparently some funny business going down in the surrounding woods. Mines are being attacked, caravans raided—the whole shebang.
Yup, there’s definitely something foul afoot in this forest.
Frankly, I don’t care to find out what, but if the price is right…
