Lieutenant Marianus O'mas thought his days with the Intelligence Division were over. He’d made it pretty clear that he was done, and yet, soldiers came for him. After a cross-country trip takes him to Commander Lynwell, O’mas discovers why he is summoned: Moa’rehnza's autocratic government has sent invaders to attack Verenigen's southern shores.
O’mas is given a dangerous assignment: to assassinate the Moa’rehnzan despot Carolus Res Ceosan and his High Council and end the unplanned war.
O'mas needs every advantage that he can find. He assembles the 12th VRF, a team of highly-skilled soldiers and militiamen. Among them are "the gifted," people with special abilities that will help them on what is most likely a suicide mission.
As the fighting to the north rages on, O'mas and his squad journey through the jungle of the Regenwald. Deep in the dense rainforest they uncover Project Ember, Moa'rehnza's darkest secret and a reason for the fighting.
Set a decade before the events of Not Gods But Monsters, The Killing Kind details a conflict with complex causes and devastating outcomes.
The Killing Kind will be available in eBook and trade paperback on November 13, 2018.
