A secret branch of the U.S. government has found pyramids on Callisto, a Jupiter moon. They are etched with ancient hieroglyphs that no one can understand -- no one but archaeologist Kaden Jaxx. What's more, the pyramids are giving off energy. Lots of energy. Enough to power half of the United States. But Jaxx discovers his Black Ops bosses are hiding an Earth-shattering truth -- an ancient civilization may still be on that moon. And a secret launch to that moon is imminent. Jaxx hires a brilliant but impulsive reporter who digs into the agency's mandate. When they learn too much, the hunt is on: they're on a government hit list and are now trapped in a race against time to blow the lid off the secret plans, save themselves, and maybe even mankind.

Zoey and Coda are like everyone else in their small town of Gladstone, but that's about to change - forever. Zoey has a dream, one that feels far more real than it should. A strange wolf with a beautiful, violet crystal embedded on his forehead visits her. "Please help us," the wolf implores with sad eyes. "Remember, Zoey, who you truly are." Zoey wakes up, dismissing it as a silly dream. However, she soon realizes that it was far more real than she could have ever imagined. Coda is Zoey's older brother. Like most boys his age, he has a craving for adventure and a loathing for his younger sister. He can't stand it that she constantly gets in his way, joining in on all of his fun while ruining it in the process. The worst, according to Coda, is that Zoey gets all of the attention from their parents. A big drag in his mind. Then destiny arrives. Zoey and Coda find that they must face it together - if they want to survive. Together, they journey to a place deep in the Cornell Forest, beyond the Snow Tree and through a blackberry bush, to a secret portal that leads them to an ancient world called Ohm Totem - to the place of the PureLights, the race that beckoned for their help. There, Zoey and Coda find that they hold something so unique, so magical, and so sacred within themselves that even those who called for them never fathomed how powerful these two children really are. Caught between an age old war and finding their way back home, Zoey and Coda go on an amazing adventure that takes them beyond the veils of everything they once knew, and into the terrifying grasp of the unknown.
They've lived in orbit around the planet Lumus for centuries and, for all they know, no one else exists but them. However, they don't know how their race got here. No history book has an answer and no historian has the guts to find out. It's as if the human race originated in orbit around this planet. Any knowledge of their distant past has either been erased or their Prime Director is correct--they were birthed here. Most don't question it. Some do. Regardless, life is undisturbed. All they know is peace. There is no torment and no war. Their starships and starfighters are for show; unneeded and manufactured to create employment. They have no known enemies, have never been threatened, and certainly have never experienced carnage. Because of this, they are not prepared for what's coming.
For soldier of fortune and Aussie knockabout Lachlan McKnight, his new contract with Great White Global Risk Consulting was supposed to be an easy way to make some sweet cash, catch up with old mates and hang out with hot European chicks. Unfortunately, when you're a drunken womaniser, your best mate is a lying, sexual deviant and your contract is in Afghanistan, life doesn't always go according to plan. In fact, for Big Lachy, trouble always seems to be just around the corner, whether it's a professional Rugby League player with a score to settle, an Amazonian Marine trying to seduce him, or an online troll trying to destroy him. In this first of many 'Lachlan McKnight Adventures', the action never ceases, as Lachy mixes it with the Green Berets, takes it to the Taliban and makes it home in time for medals and movie night. If you don't mind a good yarn, a good laugh, a good old-fashioned fistfight or two and a few gunfights thrown in for good measure, then join Lachy McKnight as he shoots, roots, drinks, fights, laughs and loves his way from the pubs of Cronulla to the Badlands of Afghanistan and back.

In 1849, British archaeologist, Austin Henry Layard, uncovered over 20,000 clay tablets in the Ancient Sumerian city of Nineveh, in an area now known as Iraq. The tablets told of an ancient race that had come before humans, arriving on Earth long ago and bringing with them untold technologies, and a mass genetic breeding program that the tablets claimed to have brought forth the creation of humankind. And then these Beings left, taking with them everything they had, except the human race. The problem is, they took some of us. And, those whom were taken have not returned, and have all but forgotten about their past and that these Beings had ever existed. These humans are now thriving someplace else...alone. Or, so they thought. They are about to be in for a rude awakening.

The value of nothing is explored in rich detail as the author reaches back as far as the ancient Sumerians to find evidence that humans have long struggled with the concept of zero, from the Greeks who may or may not have known of it, to the East where it was first used, to the modern-day desktop PC, which uses it as an essential letter in its computational alphabet.
