Russia, 1907. The revolution has failed. Leon Trotsky is one of a group of political prisoners being escorted by armed police, in a convoy of horse-drawn sleighs, to a secret location in the icy north of the country. Here they will be exiled as political prisoners. If, that is, they survive the journey. Meanwhile, in the small Siberian town of Berezovo, many dramas are unfolding. The doctor’s assistant attempts to navigate his new-found feelings for his boss’s wife under the watchful eyes of the town’s gossip-mongers. The police and the town council are awaiting with trepidation the impending arrival of the exiles. And, in the dark passageways of the Jewish Quarter, whispered arguments are rife over how best to receive their once-admired leaders. As the convoy nears its destination, the lives of the prisoners and townsfolk are on a collision course that will make history. The Rising Storm is the second in a series of novels about Berezovo. It contains a cast of memorable and intricately crafted characters who together populate a story of epic scope, reminiscent of the Russian classics of old, but which revels in the fine details of life, love, gossip, politics and intrigue. It is a striking debut from a significant new voice in fiction.

The year is 2047 and Earth's major remaining governments are now completely powerless in the face of the recently emerged voracious megacorps that now have near virtual reign over every aspect of life. They are headed by a ruthless power elite class whose dominance runs unabated due to their control over various police and military forces that have been co-opted by them. All opposition is crushed in their ever expanding shadow. A virtual intelligence super-structure has been set up by these organizations to monitor all, and certain sectors of the population function in the maintenance of the various zones within the closed system. However, as always, pockets of resistance develop as Leonard Kilbane, former black ops super soldier-turned rogue resistance leader, assembles a diverse group of mercenaries who are learning to put their differences aside in order to stand up to the ultra-suppressive, all powerful corporate state. This team has barely begun to take action when the many tentacled organizations strike back with nearly omniscient technological power projection. Sitting atop his lofty perch, shrewd businessman and banker extraordinaire Arlington Grubb, head of the uber-powered monolithic financial juggernaut Leeds-Cantwell is destroying friend and foe alike in his never-ending greed and unquenchable thirst for supremacy. Grubb is in turn watched over by a shadowy entity known only as Helix. From the glittering palaces of the depraved power-mad elites, to crumbling urban wastelands and desiccated abandoned outer areas, this twelve novel genre-breaking opus has enough characters, action, and plot twists to fascinate everyone in this journey into a not so distant future.

Hunted for years, Sarah and John Connor have waged a grave battle to save humanity from destruction. They and they alone can keep the apocalyptic Judgment Day—the day when sentient machines move to destroy their human creators—from occurring. Aided by Dieter von Rossbach, an ex-counterterrorism operative who will eventually be used as the physical model for the T-101 Terminator units, the Connors have sabotaged the Cyberdyne research facility and stopped a deadly I-950 Infiltrator unit from completing her mission. But the war is far from over, and now the heroes have been separated. Severely injured—both mentally and physically—and recuperating under military surveillance, Sarah Connor must face her deepest fears...alone. Meanwhile, von Rossbach, hunted by both the CIA and his former allies, begins a delicate mission to recruit supporters and arms support for the coming battle. Aided by a beautiful and brilliant MIT student, John Connor starts a desperate campaign across the United States and Central America to prepare an unsuspecting human race for the dark times ahead. For the original I-950 Infiltrator unit left a contingency plan—and, unbeknownst to our heroes, more Infiltrators have initiated their own clandestine operations, including the hunt to terminate the Connors. And this time, despite all their efforts, the brave heroes may not be able to stop the future war between human and machine. Cyberdyne Corporation is not the only one with plans for the computer network, and hidden far away in a top secret military base, a fledgling Skynet takes its first steps toward sentience...and toward the rise of the machines and the termination of all human life.
