About This Book
From the acclaimed authors of Heaven's War comes a tale that gives "Arthur C. Clarke a run for his money." (Robert J. Sawyer)

An immense object is approaching Earth. Two manned vehicles race through space to land first on the frozen, desolate surface: one launched by NASA, the other representing a Russian-Indian-Brazilian Coalition. Both crews have orders to do whatever it takes to claim it as their own.   But the entity is not simply a rock hurtling through the blackness. It has been sent to Earth for a reason. A vastly more intelligent race is desperately attempting to communicate with our primitive species. And their interstellar courier carries a message that the very core of humanity has responded to since time began…   Help us…

    Heaven's Fall
    Mankind’s first contact with extraterrestrial life led to an incredible revelation. Their last may lead them to extinction. Twenty years have passed since the mysterious Near-Earth Object nicknamed Keanu appeared in the night sky and transported an assortment of humans from all over Earth into its interior. There they discovered that Keanu was an immense long-range spaceship—and they were not its only inhabitants. They joined forces with the aliens called the Architects, who had come from a distant galaxy to seek help in fighting the vicious Reivers. And they defeated them—or so they thought. Now Keanu has reestablished contact with Earth—and discovered that the Reivers have, in fact, taken over the planet, placing most of the population under their dominion. A few scattered pockets of humanity, constantly in danger of being assimilated, have mounted a resistance. As the Reivers prepare a devastating strike against the Architects, Rachel Stewart, who grew up in Keanu, leads a small band of human survivors in an attempt to infiltrate the massive Reiver fortress in the American West. But their only hope for victory may yet be somewhere inside the NEO. If the men and women still in Keanu cannot find it, humanity will be finished. And the galaxy will be next.

    Heaven's War

    Heaven's War
    The competing teams of astronauts sent to explore the asteroid Keanu discovered it was, in fact, a giant spacecraft with an alien crew carrying a plea for help. A brave new frontier beckons. But it will come at a price. Without warning, the aliens transport small groups of humans to the vast interior habitats of Keanu.   Their first challenge is to survive. Their second: discover why The Architects—the unseen aliens controlling the asteroid—brought them there. The third: find a way to take control of Keanu. Because the ship is moving again.                   The Architects are going home...

    In the action-packed JSA: STEALING THUNDER, the world's original super-hero team loses one of their most beloved teammates in a costly campaign to save the world from an insane conqueror. Taking possession of Johnny Thunder, the body-jumping Ultra-Humanite uses the hero's all-powerful Thunderbolt to create a world in which he is the supreme ruler. With most of the super-heroes under the telepathic control of the sadistic villain, a substitute JSA team consisting of Sand, Power Girl, Jakeem Thunder, and new versions of Hourman and the Crimson Avenger, must battle against the mind controlled Superman and Wonder Woman. And as the situation worsens, Captain Marvel is forced to strike a deadly blow against the Ultra-Humanite that saves the day but ultimately results in the death of the possessed Johnny Thunder.
