|Five years after the events of Partholon, a juggernaut Red Army bears down on what’s left of the poorly led, underequipped, and betrayed US 1st Combined Arms Division, nicknamed the Ghosts. Victory is assured; America will fall. But Sergeant Collier Rashkil and his lover, the beautiful and ruthless Major Rosa Arce, are Ghosts. And Ghosts don’t die.
Trapped in the swamplands of south Jersey, the Ghosts maintain a thin line of defense, their survival dependent on the intelligence Rosa and Collier provide. But a reconnaissance mission goes very, very wrong, and Rosa discovers there is a traitor in their midst, one willing to sacrifice all their lives for a flawed Utopian vision.
Based on an Irish legend, Tu’an is a hair-raising story of brutal combat, of betrayal, survival, and a love that no enemy, no war, not even death, can end.

|The Twin Towers are still smoldering when those odd little anthrax letters show up, killing a few people here and there. Some nutcase, everyone thinks, but it’s not – it’s a setup, a precursor to a massive biological attack that leaves the Northeast a quarantined wasteland.
Campus policeman John Rashkil, trapped inside the Zone, chooses to keep doing his job, adding judge and executioner to his resume. He builds a jury-rigged life from what he can salvage and tries to help his teenage son survive this new, Byzantine America.
But a growing sense of futility shatters his confidence, and he is unprepared when a rabble army seeks to break quarantine and pour into the uninfected lands.
Based on an Irish legend of the same name, Partholon is a brutal look at how the just and the civilized respond to anarchy.
