Burned in the past, Laura is surprised to find herself tempted. Is this a new
start to go with a new world? Or a mismatch doomed to failure?
Forewarned by her daughter’s experiences, Laura had anticipated as many
problems as she could, and didn’t doubt her ability to cope with the rest. But
she had not planned on Gidds Selkie, a military officer
and not at all the sort of man lifelong geek Laura had ever imagined would
find her interesting.
But Arcadian paradises do not come without complications. Laura’s include a
plethora of psychic grandchildren. Interplanetary diplomacy. Her daughter’s
immense fame. And KOTIS, the military watchdog that seems to consider Laura’s
entire family government property.
One does not simply walk onto another planet. At least not without the help of
a daughter who has developed unlikely powers, fought an intra-dimensional war,
and then arranged for a family relocation to a futuristic clone of Earth.
Laura Devlin would gladly have paid any price to have her daughter back, so
living in a techno-paradise with spaceship views is merely an added bonus. And
a dream come true.
Anessa, ruler of the Shara Daim, and Adrian, Lord Sentinel of the Empire, are forced to plan for a defense against a force that outnumbers them almost three to one. Hoping to stall the Erasi advance long enough for their advanced technology to make a difference.
The Shara Daim Legions stopped the Erasi fleets from pushing further into their territory, and with the invasion halted a lull in the war gives the Empire time to seek a diplomatic solution on behalf of their new ally. But the Erasi are stalling the diplomatic talks, and the Shara Daim are not willing to wait for long before launching an offensive to take back their systems. The Erasi are master manipulators, and while they feign interest in a peaceful resolution, a massive force from their core is gathering, commanded by one of the founders of the Erasi.
Erasi and the Shara Daim are at war.
The Empire is faced with a war that could signal its fall, and Adrian is the only thing standing between his people and two empires set on pushing their own interests. The only chance he has of stopping the war that the Empire can’t win, is to change the mind of his prisoner – Dai Sha Anessa.
But as the Shara Daim and the Empire prepare to go to war, another player schemes in the shadows. The Erasi have their own plans for the Shara Daim, and the Empire just became a part of them.
Anessa, Dai Sha of the Shara Daim, finds herself a prisoner for the first time in her life, her only hope of seeing her people again a promise made by her captor – Lord Sentinel of the Empire. But imprisonment holds even greater dangers, as her captor’s ideologies clash with her own beliefs.
But even as the Shara Daim Legions assemble for their invasion of Sol, Adrian and the Empire’s fleets move to fulfill a promise made long ago to the race that had enslaved and destroyed Earth – the Ra’a’zani.
At Sol, Adrian Farkas – Lord Sentinel of the Empire, prepares the defenses for the inevitable attack by the Legions of the Shara Daim – the third race created by the human and Nel ancestor Axull Darr. The Shara Daim come for the device left by their common ancestor, intent on claiming it for themselves, their Elders planning to use it to fulfill their goal of ruling the galaxy. But Adrian has plans of his own.
Adrian Farkas awakens new abilities, buried deep inside the human genetic code by their ancestor Axull Darr. And with them the Empire gains all the knowledge contained inside the device left by their ancestor, the sum knowledge of the People, the first intelligent race in the universe and the ancestors of Humanity and the Nel. Adrian struggles to learn how to use his new abilities, even as he commands the invasion against the Sowir. But Sowir are not the only thing that threatens the Empire, new dangers lurk just outside of its now growing territory. And the Empire will need everything it has in order to survive.
The end of the Sowir Dominion draws near as the Empire resumes its offensive. The retaking of Guxcacal home-world begins, as the Empire’s fleets invade the remaining Sowir territory. But the Sowir still have surprises up their sleeves.
A growing Empire…

The Empire needs to prepare for war, and perhaps even strike first in order to protect its people that now include Nel – aliens from the colony world of Nuva.

Adrian Farkas and Retsar Isani – commander of a Nel flotilla – travel to Nelus, the Nel home world. Hoping to convince the Nel government that an alliance is their only hope of them winning the war with the Sowir Dominion.
On Earth, resistance prepares to retake their world, daring to reveal themselves for the first time in years. Risking everything for the chance to liberate their world.
Victory against the Sowir at the battle for Nuva gave Olympus and their new allies time to fortify their positions. Meanwhile Olympus stretches its already limited resources on a mission to aid their home planet – Earth, which had been enslaved by an alien race called Ra’a’zani.

About the Author
An action-packed dystopian thriller featuring a tough female heroine whom readers worldwide have fallen in love with, ARENA 3 is the shocking conclusion to the bestselling Survival Trilogy, and one that will leave you turning pages late into the night.
Will she risk it all for others?
Yet that is not the worst of it: something else lies in her way. Arena 3. The greatest arena left in what was once America, the most brutal and dangerous of them all, the one from which no one survives. The one, she knows, that would test the very limit of all that she is.
Brooke soon realizes, though, that being safe and secluded is not all there is to life. When she hears rumors of survivors underground, deep in America, fighting to restore order from the inside—her Dad possibly amongst them—Brooke finds herself facing the choice of a lifetime: to live in this perfect place, free and safe for the rest of her days, or to embark and fight for others’ freedom. It would be a journey, she knows, back through post-apocalyptic America, this time traveling west, across its breadth, in search of the rumored survivors, of her father. She would have to fight her way through a land transformed by apocalypse, try to survive a never-ending stream of dangers, roving packs of violent gangs, with few resources and fewer supplies. It would be a two thousand mile trek to a certain suicide. And if she leaves this utopia, she knows, there is no coming back.
As Brooke recovers, she meets the mysterious survivors who inhabit this city, and who vie for her love. She trains again, enhancing her fighting skills greatly under the wing of a new mentor, and matures into a woman.
After nearly freezing to death on their trek north, Brooke and her small group wake to find themselves in civilization. They have found the utopian city, hidden deep in a remote stretch of Canada. They have heat, food, comfortable beds, clean clothes, and security. Finally, they have made it.
In a land impoverished by a war that started before she was born, Kiena has provided for her mother and brother by becoming one of the best hunters in the kingdom. But when a lifelong friend with connections recommends her to the king to track down a runaway princess, her life gets turned upside down. Finding the princess is easy. Deciding what to do in a conflicting mess of politics and emotions… not so much.
