The Phoenix Conspiracy. The Recruitment.

cover

Fans who love The Hunger Games and Divergent will be captivated by YA dystopian adventure, The Phoenix Conspiracy.

In this new release by K. Barnett, friendships and alliances are tested when the powers that be recruit teenagers against their will, to either become an army, or a peace corps in search of new land.

The Phoenix Conspiracy puts a new spin on a popular genre with fascinating characters and mysterious motivations.

This absorbing tale depicts a potentially real set of circumstances in which humans have destroyed Earth through global warming.

Set 380 years in the future and with a genetic twist, readers will discover who and what parts of society survive the apocalypse.

The future of mankind depends upon genetically modified humans who can fly, and a girl who will stop at nothing to be truly free. In a world consumed by water, there are those that believe beautiful and vast lands still exist somewhere beyond the storm ravaged oceans around their little island known as Continent One.
Alya and her friends abide by strict rules managed by a strong enforcement agency of Patrol officers that monitor and restrict their desire to fly, that is until they discover secret plans to conscript an army of their peers who will be forced to travel across the raging weather systems of Earth, in search of the new continent.
Along with shocking recruitment revelations comes Alya’s recognition of her evolving abilities to outfly her peers. So begin some dubious theories that she may have been illegally modified as part of the conspiracy to find new land by any means necessary—even if that risks Alya and her friends’ lives.

The Conspiracy Theory delivers on all fronts for adventure and mystery and will align with readers that enjoy characters in the midst of discovering their own fortitude and resilience.

Forging the Nightmare: A Jarrod Hawkins Technothriller

cover

THE PERFECT WEAPON HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN.

Jarrod Hawkins is ushered into an underground facility, where a group of DARPA scientists use his body for biotechnological research. They use genetic editing, nanomachinery, neural rewriting, and next-generation armor to turn him into the most fearsome weapon on earth. But as they push the limits of human performance and lethality, the facility begins to experience unexpected power outages. There is evidence of sabotage, and the security team is plagued with sickening pranks. There is only one explanation—their creation has turned against them.

As the experiment nears its completion, Jarrod struggles to understand his new abilities. His memories have been shattered, but his instincts scream at him to escape at any cost. On the outside, he has become a machine of war, but inside, the remnant of his former self fights for control. As a team of surgeons prepare for a final operation, Jarrod must make a choice: Will he let them take control of his mind, or will he use his enhancements to break free? Will he become a perfect soldier, or the most fearsome vigilante the world has ever known?

Renegade Patriot

cover

War is looming and Flight Sergeant Neffy Klingerman answers the call.

Teamed up with Ally, a human consciousness in a concierge bot-body, he heads out to New Atlantia in the Federation’s boondocks where he finds two sides ready to blow each other off the face of the planet.

Standing in the way of a peaceful resolution is a little matter of a kidnapped scientist and a stolen zero-point energy generator: a piece of tech which, in the wrong hands, is capable of ripping a hole in the universe.

Neffy’s only chance at saving the entire space-time continuum as we know it is to unravel a sinister plot, track the kidnappers, and take down an endless stream of covert delta forces and black ops teams as he planet-hops in pursuit of the device.

All of which is making it harder to maintain a cease-fire back at New Atlantia.

He’s going to have to pull out the stops to save the peace, the Federation, and a healthy chunk of the universe.

The Cyborg’s Lady: a sci fi romance

cover

The League of Realms’ top enforcer cyborg Keiron Yaggar can have any woman in the galaxy.

But it’s the foxy stranger the colonel meets on his long-overdue vacation who catches his eye. Linni from Ittroise, as she introduces herself, is taking a week off work, and is on the same Two Planets and a Moon Tour as Keiron.

The young woman fascinates him. Her proud bearing, the way she gazes at the stars, the way she’s not awestruck by his position or stature… Not to mention the nerve she displays when the pair run into some very dangerous people on the deceptively idyllic Tastassi, the second stop on the tour.

Once Keiron returns to work, he’ll look into that planet.

He’ll also look into Linni, because there’s more to this young woman than she lets on. Much more. Somehow, she’s breached his defenses… and made his desire flare after their torrid night of passion.

Keiron knows he isn’t letting Linni go so easily.

What he doesn’t know is that he’s fallen for the one woman in the galaxy he cannot have…

Unearthed

Blague is a defiler, a criminal, a demon… to most of the world. But to some, he is a liberator. Scorned and banished, he knew that this wasn’t to be his end – that something, somewhere deep, burned within him. A power so immense that it would define the legacy of an entire rebellion, if only he could ever unlock it.

His past is a cold mess. After his mother and father were stolen from him, after he witnessed the murder of the person he loved most in this world… there was nothing left to take. He’d lost everything to the Hiezers.

Now he treks in exile, as a Sin, witnessing more of the Hiezer atrocities. He watches causeless violence, innocents dragged away, permanently, for some dark experimental objective. Now more than ever, renewed purpose is clear – Blague must break the chains, and he must unleash his inner demons to do it.

It’s here, with a multifarious group of able misfits that his journey takes shape, one with a singular facet that holds true throughout it all – their suffering has only just begun.
