Reprisal

Ancient Warrior—Vampire—Queen’s Bitch...

Akio accepted his Queen’s charge to stay behind and protect humanity from the Forsaken scourge.

She never said it would be easy.

An isolated police report about an island overtaken by feral, red-eyed creatures savaging humans spurs Akio to investigate. 

The local police are good at their job, but they’re not well-equipped to handle things that go bump in the night.

Especially not the ones terrorizing this once-peaceful island paradise.

While dealing with the incursion, Akio discovers new information. The situation is escalating—and all evidence points to enemies from his past.

A dangerous science he’d thought was destroyed.

The Forsaken are rising to take their place as the alpha predators.

Now, it’s a race against overwhelming odds as Akio unravels long-laid complex plans and takes the fight to those who threaten the last bastion of civilization on post-apocalyptic Earth.

Can he stop this evil before it enslaves humanity?

Or will the Forsaken succeed in taking over the world?

Hi

Thank you for stopping by. I suppose I should start by telling you a little about me

I have lead an eclectic life, to say the least. Fresh out of high school, three days after graduation, I was at Lackland AFB in San Antonio, Texas for basic training. After basic, I spent a few years as a Loadmaster on C-130 aircraft in the MS Air National Guard. It was a great gig for a young man and I got to see a whole lot of the world as a guard bum. I had a blast and got paid to do it.

Realizing it was time to settle down and get a ""real"" job I spent the next twenty-six plus years working in law enforcement. I saw the best and the worst in humanity during those years. The things that one human being is capable of doing to another is mindblowing. I won more battles than I lost and came out on the other end with some scars but mostly intact and most importantly...Retired.

During those years reading Fantasy and Science Fiction was my escape from reality and my sanity saver. I read everything I could find that had magic or space ships in it. The farther away from the real world the better.

In 2018 I answered a call for short story submissions in an existing urban fantasy universe created by two authors who were opening their world up for us fans to play in. In late 2018 my story was accepted and on April 16, 2019, I became a published author thanks to Michael Anderle and Martha Carr's generosity in allowing me to write in their world.

That was the first but most assuredly not the last story that I will write. I am currently working on a couple of projects that are the kind of books I like, and hope you will too, to read.

Thank you for stopping by and keep a lookout for things to come.

Charles
