The Zoo – Alien Invasion Starter Pack: Six Book Ones For Six Series

Fountain of Youth, or Valley of Death?

The future of mankind is growing in the Sahara Desert. The government needs the best of the best military and scientific minds working out how to pull the secrets from the ZOO while keeping the deadly fauna and flora in check.

Join intrepid adventurers in book 1s of six series as they take on the ZOO!

Fight For Life and Death

Fighting hard, multiple countries band together to successfully pause the apocalypse.

So what did the military want with Dr. Christopher Lin?

By the time his helicopter ride was on the ground, he wasn’t a ZOO virgin any longer.

Join Dr. Christopher Lin as he learns about the ZOO, how to stay alive and the opportunities that being a part of the ZOO has brought humanity.

Kill Or Be Killed

Jeremiah Johnson needs a job and Retired Marine Colonel Anderson needs a man with Johnson’s particular skills.

It’s either a match made in Heaven or Hell, depending on which side of the gun you are standing on. Inside the ZOO isn’t the only place people are acting greedy. Doctor Courtney Monroe has taken control of her Dad’s legacy. Are Anderson and Savage the men she need to make it happen?

Reprobates

With nothing in their future, Former US Marine Charles, ex-SAS Booker, and ex-Australian Army Roo decide to give the Zoo a shot. Without the contacts, without backing, without knowing what they are getting into, they scramble to get their foot in the door to even make rent in one of the most dangerous areas in the world. With high rewards comes high risk. Can they learn on the job?

He Was Not Prepared

While eating his supper of microwave popcorn, PhD student-genius Salinger Jacobs is grabbed from his apartment in California, stuck on a C-130 military plane and sent to the Sahara Desert to witness the reality of the ZOO for himself. If he can stay alive long enough, he might be able to afford something besides packaged microwave popcorn to eat.

First order of business?

How do you shoot a gun, and just HOW MUCH is that plant worth?

Hired Killer

His name is Taylor McFadden, survivor of 83 trips into the ZOO. Now, he’s retired, and yet his country needs his skills to save people in the country he calls home. Can he build a company, put down roots and still bring the pain when the FBI calls? When they tag him as The Cryptid Assassin, they weren’t wrong. For monsters that go bump in the night, he is death incarnate.

An Assassin’s Accord

The world is different. An alien ‘infection’ of flora and fauna is contained by massive walls and substantial firepower over in the middle of Africa. It holds the promise of immortality, and infinite wealth. Now, when a country needs help finding and taking down the worst they have a new company to call. McFadden and Banks. This is their story.

Hostile Contact

An alien incursion pits a squad of army reserves against the might of alien technology as Military Sci-Fi meets First Contact in this brilliantly pacy and action-packed sci-fi novel.

Insubordinate and on the edge, Finn is an ex-War Hero racked by guilt who has to drag his rag tag squad of rookies through the battlefield.

Only Zuri, the female gunner, and Smith, his dead Corporal now an AI, can keep him on track as together they struggle to keep their trainees alive in the face of overwhelming odds.

As they fight for survival, they discover the aliens are more than they seem, and that alien technology can be just as deadly in the hands of humans as they unearth the Weapons of Choice.


Meet Nick Snape

Nick Snape has been steeped in Science Fiction and Fantasy since his friends first dragged him from his schoolwork and stuck a book under his nose. Lost to the world of imagination he became a teacher by accident though he thoroughly enjoyed developing the joy of reading and writing in his pupils. Having retired after thirty years he thought it was high time to practise what he preached.

Bloodstained Skies: The Core of Rage

After years of tension, war has finally come to the Union worlds. Hordes of rebels, seeking revenge for their lost worlds, ravage the Peripheral Zones. One of the leaders of the rebellion is Charon Antares, a strict and shrewd warrior who doesn’t accept any weaknesses or cowardice. He has been struggling for years to liberate his planet, Zetherion, from the Union control. When another one of his braver mission ends in disaster, the rich and powerful sovereign plans to deprive him of his authority. To save his status, Antares agrees to execute her insane order that may cost the lives of thousands of his people. A young and easy-going girl named Cerridwen lives in a peaceful world. One day, by accident, she comes in Antares’s way. When she finds out about the tragedy that happened to her family, she vows revenge, but without collaboration with Antares and the rebels, she will not be able to fulfil her plan. Meanwhile, a group of the Union scientists decides to end the rebel’s invasions, once and for all – they build a deadly, inhumane weapon out of sight of the government. For fans of: Halo, Warhammer, Star Wars

Meet Dagmar Rokita

Dagmar Rokita is a Polish writer and an artist. She writes and illustrates dark sci-fi series called “Bloodstained Skies”. There are two things that inspire her: imaginary world of geek culture and the deepest corners of human psychology. Huge doses of heavy metal and history are her creative fuel. She wants to become a famous artist because she needs money to buy sophisticated food for her cat.

Oblivion’s Cloak

First Lieutenant Shaara was dead this morning.

Her captain is furious at her. She wasted company resources getting herself killed, and it’s coming out of her paycheck. Now, she’s sitting across from the first other human being she’s seen in six years. His name is Adnan. He claims to come from Earth—but that’s impossible. Earth died a long time ago. If Adnan’s telling the truth, he and the decaying ship the captain pulled him off are nearly a thousand years old.

Wherever he’s from, he’s Shaara’s responsibility now. Which is the last thing she needs. But it’s either that, or the captain sells Adnan into slavery. Shaara knows what that would mean. Most humans do. And something inside her won’t let her abandon Adnan to it: revenant memories, stabbed awake by the look in his eyes.

Facing those memories won’t be easy. It’d be far easier to ignore the feeling driving her forward. Far easier to let it all go to hell, and drift back to sleep.

Until a shadowy new faction starts stoking the fires of war. They’re looking for Adnan; Earth’s last survivor holds the key to unleash a terrible, indiscriminate vengeance on the galaxy that wronged them. Who they are is a mystery—to everyone but Shaara. Hard as she’s tried to forget, she knows them all too well. Which means she’s the only one who can stop them.

The question is: does she want to? Maybe the galaxy’s earned a little vengeance.


Meet Dylan McFadyen

Dylan has been writing science fiction stories since he was old enough to write. He’s been writing original science fiction stories—discounting admittedly awesome fully illustrated Star Trek and Star Wars fan fiction—since he was twelve.

Other than sci-fi and storytelling, Dylan loves history (which is just another form of storytelling, if you think about it). He has a master’s degree in international relations and conflict, and to this day spends as much time reading history as anything else.

When not reading or writing, Dylan enjoys spending time with his lovely wife, Victoria, particularly watching yet more stories, from brilliant favorites like Battlestar Galactica and The Expanse, to joyously terrible films like Miami Connection and Samurai Cop. He also enjoys long walks with their dog, El Doggo, who is the fabled Goodest Boy.

Finally, Dylan enjoys shooting sports, and like all good children of the 90s, video games. He’s played more hours of modded XCOM 2 than some babies have been alive.

He also has a Lord of the Rings tattoo, which in a way tells you everything else you need to know.

Tethered Worlds: Unwelcome Star

For fans of Dune, the Honor Harrington series, & Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet series.

Imagine using a technology so different, that it appears as magic…


“…one of the most fully imagined sci-fi worlds I have ever experienced outside of Frank Herbert’s genre-defining “Dune” series.” –D.A.Cartier

Jordahk thought he was average. He was wrong. He thought his planet too far from the centuries-old stalemate line to see any action. He was wrong about that too.

To save his world from annexation he must retreat with his eccentric grandfather, seeking help from the farthest planets. But what can stop the domination of mankind’s supreme star-spanning government?

There is an ancient technology with the power to break the conventional–but it can also break the user. And only a special few can wield it. But Jordahk suspects his grandfather knows more than he’s telling…


Meet Gregory Faccone

You might think part-time mystery man Gregory Faccone has lived ten lifetimes. He’s experienced the ocean’s cool dawn, and baked in 130° deserts. He’s worked amidst the concrete canyons of major cities, and on a dark, rainy night, driven a remote road carpeted with frogs (true story, really).

Classically trained in creative arts, he performed a long tenure developing electronic entertainment with smaller dev houses and the biggest names like Electronic Arts and SONY. He collaborated with Universal Studios, Warner Bros., and Paramount, adding content to popular franchises from Star Trek, to comics, to even medical dramas like ER.

Gregory’s editing skills, refined in the crucible of competitive entertainment, can be put to use for your novel or creative endeavor. See his Editing Services page and get your dream moving forward today.

To share his creations beyond fleeting game systems, Gregory had to venture into the written word. It has stood for centuries, and although the ways we read evolve, novels continue unimpeded. A reader’s bond with a quality literary work is unlike any other. When Gregory starting creating a unique science fiction universe, he knew the medium for which it was destined. The fantastic framework for his science fiction series, Tethered Worlds, took two years to create before he jumped into writing the first entry.

Gregory is influenced by Arthur C. Clarke’s axiom: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” So jump into Tethered Worlds and go on an adventure based in the centuries to come. While the technology is advanced, the nature of mankind is unchanged. It continues to wrestle with flaws, and is preserved through selflessness and nobility.

Reclaimer: The Crucible

Earth is dying, the PAC are invading, and Gabriel will do anything to protect his family.

The plan was simple: Evacuate the city, enlist in the Tactical Armor Corps, and stop the invasion. Easy, right? 

Things rarely go according to plan.

When his city falls, Gabriel discovers how unprepared he truly is.

Recruited into the Reclaimer project, Gabriel must survive a brutal selection process. Deadly traps lurk around every corner, and survival comes at a steep price. One threatening to break him.

When success marks him for death, Gabriel fears he’ll become another statistic…

Experience the first kickass, action packed story in the Legacy of a Dying World series, a gritty, military sci-fi epic set upon an apocalyptic earth. Perfect for fans of Scott Moon, JN Chaney, and Rick Partlow


Meet Waldo Rodriguez

Waldo Rodriguez is an American author from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, living in Florida with his two dogs. He started off on this whirlwind adventure of writing fiction by trying to break into the gaming industry. Along the way, he discovered a love for world crafting and storytelling and made a sharp right turn.

A long time gamer and lover of sci-fi and fantasy, he spends his time thinking up new stories, playing and deconstructing video games.

Currently, his greatest aspiration is to create a fantastic new world for readers to dive into and enjoy.
