The Sea Wolf sets out to search for the Metal Islands. Leading the expedition is legendary Hell Diver Xavier Rodriguez. After enduring a decade on the poisoned surface, his survival skills will be put to the test on the dangerous open seas. But storms, sea monsters, and the cannibalistic Cazadores aren't the only threat to X and his small crew. Their mission will uncover hard truths about the history of the war that left humankind stranded in the air for centuries. The fate of those still living on the airships might very well rest on this perilous journey to find a new home.

The final book from Professor Stephen Hawking, the best-selling author of A Brief History of Time and arguably the most famous scientist of our age, Brief Answers to the Big Questions is a profound, accessible and timely reflection on the biggest questions in science. Professor Hawking was a brilliant theoretical physicist, an influential author and thinker and a great popular communicator. Throughout his career he was asked questions by business leaders, politicians, entrepreneurs, academics and the general public on a broad range of subjects, from the origins of the universe to the future of the planet.

Steve Hawking is, and always will be, a hard act to follow. One of Humanity's best. I just wish todays so-called political leaders come even come close to emulating him. My mother-in-law died from MND. A beautiful women and great mum. Truly missed. Both of them.

Its over. Fourteen novels. What do I do now? Well firstly grab a copy of "Fickisms". I admit I shed a few tears along the journey for the many fallen. RC Bray, thank you for bringing all these great characters to life, only you could have made it all worth while. So I ask "what do I do now?". Easy, start at book 1 again....

Along the way, they became sidetracked by securing a future for the UNEF troops on the planet Paradise. When asked whether Earth was now safe, their ancient alien AI responded "Not so much"...now they have to deal with the consequences.

Tell me its true, that the rumour is true. Skippy is releasing an ablum of his twenty greatest showtunes what he did write, or tweak a bit. I what that album. I need that album, so I can play it the car when I run my teenage daughters to school. RCB, as usual, knocks it out of the park as he does with MM, Arisen, Expeditionary Force.

The world's last floating nuclear supercarrier looks into the face of oblivion as her thinned, exhausted, and beleaguered crew face the largest herd of dead ever recorded. Soon the ship's five-acre flight deck will become the scene of a furious and desperate set-piece battle - like no combat any modern army has seen since Stalingrad. The ranks of the dead are infinite, and those of the living are tiny, depleted, and running out of time...and of hope.

If you could sum up Arisen Omnibus Edition: Books 1-3 in three words, what would they be?

The best, couldn't put it down.

What did you like best about this story?

The whole genre, Tier 1 SF, Zulus, plus Romeos and Foxtrots, says it all...

What does R.C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He's the only narrator I can listen too

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The Earth lies shaken in the aftermath of a conspiracy. Some of the smartest minds on the planet have striven for and died in an effort to scour the skies of four vast alien satellites, but their success has brought a terrible vengeance down upon us. While alien agents stalk the Earth, a team of exhausted scientists and military outcasts struggle to fight them among a planet on the brink - the brink of plague, the brink of war, and the brink of an invasion larger than they can possibly imagine. But they have allies.
