A Game of Life and Death
(Warning: Contains violence as well as adult situations and language)
Ben sat down to play a brand-new MMORPG, Eternal Journey Online. Next thing he knew, he had been transformed into his character, first-level Paladin Hawke Lightseeker, and found himself in a corpse-filled cavern complex crawling with monsters and undead. Armed with a sentient sword, Hawke must learn the rules of a reality where magic and power-leveling are as real as swords and knives, and where you only get a limited number of respawns before you die for good.
Follow Hawke as he explores the mysterious Common Realm, meets new friends and foes, battles to survive, and learns more about his growing power and inner strength.
Note to LitRPG Fans: This novel concentrates primarily on action-adventure, with a focus on power-leveling and learning new magic and class subsystems. Future novels will deal with town and stronghold management. There is also a harem (fade-to-black, non explicit) subplot that plays a part in the story without detracting from it.

The Bicentennial War’s Action-Packed Conclusion
The Nemeses: Relentless hive mind driven by a single intellect with only one desire: to eradicate all other forms of sapient life. With the known galaxy beset by genocidal armadas, only humanity stands between the invaders and extinction. The US Navy and the Warp Marines prepare for a last stand as a CIA agent tries to contact the mysterious Elder Races, who may provide the key to defeating the invaders.

Together for the first time, here are the five novels of the Warp Marine Corps Series.
Decisively Engaged: A US embassy in a remote world is under attack. Can a platoon of Marines and a band of desperate civilians survive a horde of murderous locals?

Advance to Contact: As the war hangs in the balance, an ancient alien race offers its help. The American delegation finds itself embroiled in the intrigues of the last members of a species of decadent immortals with a taste for murder. Captain Peter Fromm, CIA agent Heather McClintock and fighter pilot Lisbeth Zhang must use their wits to survive the blood games of the mysterious aliens.
In Dread Silence: While a beleaguered admiral does battle against hopeless odds, a team of Marines and researchers arrives to a distant world, exploring ancient ruins that may hold the key to humanity's salvation - or its eternal damnation. Battles rage in space while Marines pit their weapons and courage against bio-engineered monsters and hidden dangers.
Havoc of War: The end is here. Renegade humans and vengeful alien civilizations are poised to sink the galaxy into chaos and destruction. A US fleet must end the war before humanity is destroyed or becomes corrupted by the very technologies it needs to survive.

The Warp Marines are Back!
Together in one volume, the three novels of the Bicentennial War. Decades after the events of the Warp Marine Corps series, new threats menace humanity. The only thing standing before the invaders and destruction is the U.S. Navy and the Warp Marine Corps.
To the Strongest: The space nomads known as the Horde arrive to the Known Galaxy in unprecedented numbers, aboard massive weaponized asteroids. As the US Navy deals with the unprecedented threat, an elite Marine unit, the Wraiths, joins the fight.
They Shall Not Pass: The Horde is defeated, but a worse enemy follows on its heels – the Nemeses, relentless genocidal aliens with technologies far ahead of the Known Galaxy. As the US Navy tries everything in its arsenal to stop the deadly forces destroying everything in their path, a small team of Wraith Marines and CIA agents search for the person who might hold the key to victory: Colonel Lisbeth Zhang, USWMC.
Victory or Death: The Nemeses continue to advance deeper into American space, killing everything in their path. To oppose them, the US deploys ancient Kraxan weapons that may provide humanity with victory – or spell its damnation. Lisbeth Zhang leads a forlorn hope into the heart of Nemeses territory while CIA agent Heather McClintock and retired Marine Major Peter Fromm search for another possible answer to the alien threat: the Elders of the Galaxy themselves.
The action-packed sequel to the best-selling Warp Marine Corps series contains violence, adult language and adult themes.
The Warp Marines Are Back!
When an ancient foe returns to threaten the known galaxy, the United Stars of America’s Navy and Marines must rise to the occasion and fight the alien invaders to the death. Epic space and land battles against a species of deadly space nomads will determine the fate of humanity.
Jason Giraud: All he wanted was to become a Warp Marine but the Corps wasn’t hiring. When a bizarre accident grants him strange new abilities, however, Jason earns a place in the mysterious and secretive Wraith Marine Regiment. His life will never be the same.
Heather McClintock: She’s back with the CIA, protecting America from foreign enemies. Will her analytic – and telepathic – skills be enough to win the day?
Russell Edison: Retirement did not suit him. Russell returns to his beloved Corps, this time as a Critical Skills Operator instead of a regular infantryman. He soon discovers that Special Ops are even more dangerous than ground-pounder duties.
To The Strongest is the first book of a new series that follows the events of the best-selling Warp Marine Corps series that began with Decisively Engaged.
They picked a fight with the wrong species.
A NATION AT WAR: The United Stars of America. Born in the conflagration of unprovoked alien attack, the newest entrant to galactic politics took the few crumbs of hypertech gifted to it and ran with them, soon expanding over dozens of star systems and establishing a wide trade network, protected by its powerful Navy and the dreaded Warp Marines.
A FIGHT TO THE DEATH: A single Marine platoon, tasked with protecting an embassy on a hostile alien planet. An embassy – and the human enclave around it – that soon finds itself surrounded by armed mobs. Can the Marines and a ragtag band of civilian and Navy personnel survive long enough to be rescued?
Christine Dark and Mark Martinez face their greatest challenge yet. Captured by the Dominion of the Ukraine, where they face torture and death, they must find a way to outsmart the Iron Tsar, escape, and deliver the world from utter destruction. Meanwhile, other heroes and villains forge alliances or battle each other as the fate of Earth Alpha, an alternate reality where superheroes are only too real, hangs in the balance.
The third book of the New Olympus Saga that began with Armageddon Girl, Apocalypse Dance is a tale of action, drama, romance and humor.
An Implacable Foe
The Nemeses are here. A mysterious species responsible for wiping out countless civilizations. Can the star-faring nations of the Known Galaxy stop the million-year-old force gathering at their doorstep? Hasty alliances are formed and former enemies stand together as the US Navy, weakened after the Horde invasion, must rebuild in the brief months before it has to fight for the survival of humanity.
While America prepares for war, the conflict’s outcome may depend on a single person. Colonel Lisbeth Zhang, USWMC, has been captured by a cult of warp-crazed cultist and is held in a fortress planet deep in a lawless part of the galaxy. A joint team of Marine Wraiths and CIA agents led by Heather McClintock launch a covert rescue mission. Zhang’s warp abilities may be the key to defeating the Nemeses – but only if the small team of Marines can defeat impossible odds to bring her back alive.
They Shall Not Pass is the second book of the Bicentennial War, sequel to the best-selling Warp Marine Corps series.

(WARNING: Contains violence, adult content and strong language.)
A world of larger-than-life heroes and villains with all too human failings. An action-packed tale, combining thrills with humor and more than a few pop culture references and nods to geek culture. This is the first tome of the New Olympus Saga.
College student Christine Dark wasn't happy. Her social life sucked, she spent too much of her time playing computer games or reading sci-fi novels (and the occasional paranormal romance) and she felt like she was missing out on everything.
Fate had something special in store for her, though.
Without warning, an unknown force drags Christine out of her world and takes her to a whole new universe, an alternate Earth where superhuman beings have existed since the end of World War One, a world filled with strange and dangerous characters.
Christine soon learns she too is more than human, and that her choices may save her new home... or bring about its destruction.
REVISED EDITION: The original novel has been updated and revised, with some typo corrections and edition changes.
