The Frontier Rebellion
The Frontier Rebellion


The Freedom Alliance consists of twenty frontier planets which revolt against the tyranny of the corporation-controlled Earth but above all against their corporate masters that control almost every facet of life on their planets. The surprise revolt succeeds at first but then the Earth Navy comes back, bringing enough warships and corporation army troops to subdue the rebels, they think. Unfortunately for them they have never come up against people like Maria Santos, Calvin Helos, General Juanita Sanforth and other brave patriots willing to sacrifice all for a chance to run their own lives. Forced underground, they prepare for a second revolt, using their hidden navy built from confiscated transports, obsolete weapons that have not been used for half a century, an underground army training in the jungles and finally a unique ally, the Elves of Weaver. Even then success is not guaranteed. Lives will be sacrificed, ships will be lost and the fight will be fiercer than they ever believed, but the Freedom Alliance is determined to succeed. Their people will live free or die trying.

The Frontier Rebellion is another masterful novel by Darrell Bain, author of Human by Choice, Alien Infection, Starship Down, The Long Way Home and many others.

Series

 

THE CRESPERIAN SERIES

Human by Choice    

Human by Choice. SF. Best-selling science fiction print author Travis S. "Doc Travis" Taylor and best-selling ebook author Darrell Bain have combined talents to produce a new science fiction thriller. Several alien lifeboats make it to earth in widely separated spots after their interstellar spaceship malfunctions. One of the aliens comes down near the home of Kyle Leverson, a former army intelligence officer and now a widowed science journalist. The aliens think they can never go home but they are able to convert their bodies into duplicates of human beings over a period of time. Kyle helps the alien during the process as it becomes a human female, yet retains its previous knowledge and abilities, including a powerful perceptive sense unlike anything known to humans. What Kyle doesn't realize is that the alien intends to become a human female in every aspect, with him as the teacher. How does one instruct an alien from a wildly different culture in every characteristic of human behavior, including sex? It's a chore far harder than Kyle Leverson ever imagined, especially since he and his alien guest have to contend with the other aliens, who are being instructed (or in a couple of cases, captured and abused) by different groups of people in several other nations. Their outlook on what it means to be human is different from Kyle's and the results will be evident when the aliens have to fight each other, even though they've never done such things before. Fortunately for Kyle, his alien is a fast learner. But it also becomes such a compatible and beautiful human female that he finds himself falling in love. A truly thoughtful and sophisticated science fiction novel, by Travis S. Taylor, the author of Warp Speed, The Quantum Connection and Von Neuman's War (in collaboration with John Ringo) and Darrell Bain, the multiple award-winning author of Alien Infection, Strange Valley, Savage Survival and The Melanin Apocalypse.

Available at Amazon or  Barnes & Noble.
 

Human by Choice    

The Y Factor. SF. When a stranger invades geneticist Mai Trung's office, he has to say only one word to get her interested in leaving with him: Xenobiology. Rumors have been rife about aliens on Earth, but only a select few know that they arrived on widely scattered lifeboats from a wrecked spaceship. Mai is brought into the secret group working with a few of the surviving aliens because they have one trait that is almost incredible for its implications: They can turn themselves into perfect humans. More than perfect, actually. Closer to superhuman. And Mai is told she will be working with one of the aliens in order to help figure out how to apply that ability to humans; to heal injuries, to slow or even reverse the aging process, to make oneself healthier or more attractive. In the meantime, other scientists are re-engineering some of the alien technology in order to build a faster-than-light spaceship before other nations who have captured aliens do so. From that first word in her office, Mai begins an incredible journey that will eventually take her to the stars and into a whole new existence.

Available at Amazon or  Barnes & Noble


The Crespreian Alliance    

SF. The Cesperian Alliance. As Earth becomes an interstellar species, the ramifications hit home -- literally. Alien Cresperians scattered all over Earth; enemy Snappers seeking to expand their interstellar empire in any way they can. And Sergeant Edward "Bang" Bangler finds himself in the midst of two of the biggest battles he's ever been in -- a battle for his heart, and a battle for his home. In one mission of interstellar exploration, Earth finds perhaps its greatest allies and its greatest enemies, as they and the Cresperian race discover the inimical race of Snappers, a multiple stellar system empire of ruthless ferocity. Unfortunately, when the Snappers decide to expand their domain to include the Cresperian and Earth systems, the two civilizations must find a way to work together in order to prevent their own extermination.

Hotline to Heaven    

Hotline to Heaven. Romantic comedy. Darrell considers Hotline to Heaven one of his best books, and quite different from anything else he's ever done. Humor, chicanery, sex, betrayal and romance, along with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the end. It has such a fun plot that it will even have you wondering who you should be cheering for, the rascally villain Ed Tanner, or the innocent young Violet.
Amazon; Barnes & Noble
