2034: A Novel of the Next World War by Elliot Ackerman

 

 

From two former military officers and award-winning authors, a chillingly authentic geopolitical thriller that imagines a naval clash between the US and China in the South China Sea in 2034--and the path from there to a nightmarish global conflagration.

On March 12, 2034, US Navy Commodore Sarah Hunt is on the bridge of her flagship, the guided missile destroyer USS John Paul Jones, conducting a routine freedom of navigation patrol in the South China Sea when her ship detects an unflagged trawler in clear distress, smoke billowing from its bridge. On that same day, US Marine aviator Major Chris "Wedge" Mitchell is flying an F35E Lightning over the Strait of Hormuz, testing a new stealth technology as he flirts with Iranian airspace. By the end of that day, Wedge will be an Iranian prisoner, and Sarah Hunt's destroyer will lie at the bottom of the sea, sunk by the Chinese Navy. Iran and China have clearly coordinated their moves, which involve the use of powerful new forms of cyber weaponry that render US ships and planes defenseless. In a single day, America's faith in its military's strategic pre-eminence is in tatters. A new, terrifying era is at hand.

So begins a disturbingly plausible work of speculative fiction, co-authored by an award-winning novelist and decorated Marine veteran and the former commander of NATO, a legendary admiral who has spent much of his career strategically outmaneuvering America's most tenacious adversaries. Written with a powerful blend of geopolitical sophistication and human empathy, 2034 takes us inside the minds of a global cast of characters--Americans, Chinese, Iranians, Russians, Indians--as a series of arrogant miscalculations on all sides leads the world into an intensifying international storm. In the end, China and the United States will have paid a staggering cost, one that forever alters the global balance of power.

Everything in 2034 is an imaginative extrapolation from present-day facts on the ground combined with the authors' years working at the highest and most classified levels of national security. Sometimes it takes a brilliant work of fiction to illuminate the most dire of warnings: 2034 is all too close at hand, and this cautionary tale presents the reader a dark yet possible future that we must do all we can to avoid

The Last Bookshop in London: A Novel of World War II by Madeline Martin

 

 

“An irresistible tale which showcases the transformative power of literacy, reminding us of the hope and sanctuary our neighborhood bookstores offer during the perilous trials of war and unrest.”

—KIM MICHELE RICHARDSON, author of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek

August 1939: London prepares for war as Hitler’s forces sweep across Europe. Grace Bennett has always dreamed of moving to the city, but the bunkers and blackout curtains that she finds on her arrival were not what she expected. And she certainly never imagined she’d wind up working at Primrose Hill, a dusty old bookshop nestled in the heart of London.

Through blackouts and air raids as the Blitz intensifies, Grace discovers the power of storytelling to unite her community in ways she never dreamed—a force that triumphs over even the darkest nights of the war.

“A gorgeously written story of love, friendship, and survival set against the backdrop of WWII-era London.”

—JILLIAN CANTOR, author of In Another Time and Half Life

“A love letter to the power of books to unite us, to hold the world together when it’s falling apart around our ears. This fresh take on what London endured during WWII should catapult Madeline Martin to the top tier of historical fiction novelists.”

—KAREN ROBARDS, author of The Black Swan of Paris

DARK AGENDA: The War to Destroy Christian America by David Horowitz

 

 

"Read this disturbing but vital book." Tucker Carlson

“One of the most intellectually compelling and rational defenses of Christianity’s role in America." — Gov Mike Huckabee

"Exposes the intolerance of many atheists toward those who believe in God. As a Jewish agnostic, I think it is imperative that disbelievers not demonize believers and that believers not demonize disbelievers." — Alan Dershowitz

DARK AGENDA is an extraordinary look into the left’s calculated efforts to create a godless, heathen American society — and how these efforts must be stopped.

And it is written by David Horowitz, a Jew.

A New York Times bestselling author and leading conservative thinker, Horowitz warns that the rising attacks on Christians and their beliefs threaten all Americans — including Jews like himself. The liberal establishment and their radical allies envision a new millennium in which Christianity is banished, Horowitz argues. He says that Judeo-Christian values are at the very root of America’s democracy. Kill off such values and all of our freedoms could perish.

In Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America, Horowitz examines how our elites — increasingly secular and atheist — are pushing a radical agenda:

  • How the left trashes Christian doctrines critical to the American Republic, much like radical Islam’s war on “infidel” cultures like ours.
  • Why the left fights to keep prayer and religion out of public schools, and how those efforts fly in the face of Founding Father Thomas Jefferson’s intentions.
  • How fanatical liberals helped create the religious right by targeting evangelicals and believing Catholics and other conservatives.
  • How Barack Obama’s ultra-liberal agenda galvanized the anti-God, anti-religious left.
  • The violent and shocking manifesto of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger who advocated the use of dynamite to promote “revolutionary solidarity.”

Filled with stories that demonstrate the mind-numbing reasons behind the secular Left’s smug disdain for Christianity, Horowitz traces the history of religious liberty from the Founding Fathers to now. He shows how the Founding Fathers put aside their own skepticisms about God and religion to write The Declaration of Independence.

Today, he writes Donald Trump’s “genuine love for his country” has galvanized Christians to fight the secular war waged against them — as the president has become a lightning rod for the radical left.

David Horowitz’s powerful new book brings vital insights into the war against Christianity and names the global radicals, leftist Democrats, and money-hungry fat cats of Hollywood and Wall Street responsible for it. Finally, a clear and sensible American voice — one that is not Christian but Jewish — stands up to the twisted rantings of those who want to tear down faith and bedrock of American values. In Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America, David Horowitz delivers an impassioned plea for the restoration of political sanity in America, a perspective that made America great by respecting the faiths of our fathers and mothers.

The Strangled Hubris by K T Browne

 

 

To the aristocratic denizens of Gullhaven, Helium is the almost priceless commodity used to lift their airships above the smothering air of the city. To Baron Jasper Brundheim, it is his livelihood. That is until Parliament frames him and seizes his family’s Helium mine for their own. On the run, the young noble must join with other rebels and fight to clear his name. They must flee their beloved city, evade brutal gunsword-wielding soldiers, and find a way to thwart a sinister plot that reaches to the very highest echelons of Gullhaven’s political establishment.

"Gunswords of a gilded age we never got to witness, a depth of courtly intrigue and political high adventure give The Strangled Hubris a sense of mystery and magic long lacking in steampunk storytelling. Compelling, thrilling, and insanely imaginative."

— Nicholas Morine, author of Punish the Wicked: A Dystopian Horror

"The Strangled Hubris is a manically delightful addition to the steampunk canon. The reader is reminded of the outlandish journeys in the work of Terry Bisson, but this tale of a floating palace is a witty and energetic contribution of Keith Browne'sown. If you like stories of political machinations, Browne's your man. If you enjoy knowing winks towards Jane Austin or Blackadder, Browne's equally your man. A confident performance, whatever the weather."

— David Mathew, author of Panic Soup and Ventriloquists

"This is a wonderfully conceived, well-written and satisfying read."

— Laura Knight, author of From Under the Veils of Creation

Dispassionate Revenge: The Agathe House Series by Anne Watters

 

 

 

Xavier Whitemore, Viscount St Esher, has lived through the brutality of an abusive family, horrors of war, and the death of his newborn daughter.

Never will he be the youth that left England and the betrayal that brought Xavier to wish death.

Muryn Crane knows nothing of war, spies, or the danger that follows her. She has spent years building Agathe House into a home that cares for and helps those returning from the war, wanting to support those wishing to escape the nightmares. The building holds a special place in her heart, not due only to her brother or late husband, but to the one veteran who hates her very existence.

The fates have thrown Xavier and Muryn together to fight a sadistic enemy. Will they be able to protect the family? And, most significantly, can they overlook the passion that will soon engulf the pair?
