ICE HAMMER: INSURGENT, Book 2 in the bestselling ICE HAMMER series, 

Coming to eBook and Audiobook late 2017!

Ice Hammer Invasion


It only took an instant for the world to come crashing down. 

The bombs came first, and the troops were close behind. Life in the dream that was America ceased when a deadly new alliance of Communist states from Russia, China, and their allies invaded from the North. 

The invasion splits Brad Stone's family apart. His wife, Youngmi, is captured and exploited by Alaska's new Communist warlord. Brad and his sons narrowly avoid massacre and retreat into the icy wilderness. Brad, a former Marine, finds himself thrust to the front as the warrior they call “Ice Hammer” – a leader, a legend, and the most wanted man in occupied Alaska. 

Brad, Youngmi, and their sons Ben and Ian must find their way through the horrors of war. They may not live to see victory, but they will not live as slaves.

Appetizers white 1 clover

Colin Farnsworth was a loser. Eking an existence from writing cheap sci-fi novels and the few dollars he makes at Fantasy Underworld Card game tournaments he lives in the house where he grew up in Anchorage Alaska. His only companion is Heimdall, a four pound Yorkshire Terrier with visions of greatness. Its an existence he doesn't mind, until that is, the Brothers Four arrive on his doorstep looking for rooms to rent and with a giant troll in pursuit.

Colin’s life is turned upside as he finds himself in a real world that is much stranger than the fiction he writes or the fantasy games he plays. 
Leprechauns, Trolls, Faerie Folk, talking animals and crazed municipal building inspectors galore: Welcome to the other side of Anchorage!
In a style reminiscent of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett The Four Brothers series is relatively safe for all ages, at least those who know how to giggle.
