He knows he can avoid everything, except for the nightmares: fires, storms, disease and violence – he dreams of it all.
When he’s suddenly exposed, he finds that the media, government operatives and renegade true believers are desperate to find him, but he has another mission. Joined by a girl with terrifying abilities, he begins a desperate journey across the United States to find the others who share his dreams to stop what could be the final days of the world.

Thrust into a war on the other side of the Galaxy, the Alliance fleet led by legendary war hero Spartan faces a threat like no other.

This terrifying fleet leaves the galaxy in turmoil, and a string of devastated planets in its wake.
Spartan calls upon his allies including the renowned Syala, commander of the Black Widows mercenaries and a host of others to help him save their forces from inevitable destruction. As the Starfire armada approaches, entire planets begin their evacuation. But Spartan and Syala never back down from a fight. When others see danger and flee, they see opportunity, and they hatch a plan that that is as outlandish as it is impossible.
