From the New York Times best-selling author of The Legion of the Damned® Novels and The Mutant Files comes the first novel in a postapocalyptic military science fiction series about America rising from the ashes of a global catastrophe. On May Day 2018, 60 meteors entered Earth´s atmosphere and exploded around the globe with a force greater than a nuclear blast. Earthquakes and tsunamis followed. Then China attacked Europe, Asia, and the United States in the belief the disaster was an act of war. Washington, DC was a casualty of the meteor onslaught that decimated the nation´s leadership and left the surviving elements of the armed forces to try to restore order as American society fell apart. As refugees across America band together and engage in open warfare with the military over scarce resources, a select group of individuals representing the surviving corporate structure makes a power play to rebuild the country in a free-market image as The New Confederacy. 1.

Saddle up, lock and load, the Invisigoths are coming. In the grand tradition of cinematic epics like The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai across the Eighth Dimension, Big Trouble in Little China and - well, that’s probably it, because there’s not much else to compare to those W.D. Richter masterpieces - comes Little Women with Big Guns, a wildly imaginative and bullet-fast tale of advanced warrior legions eager to escape their banishment in a parallel dimension, and the unlikely band of heroic ´´sisters-in-the-making”, bold and reckless enough to stand in their way. Mighty Queen Nihilani and her depraved genius chief alchemist, Pageen, see their long-awaited chance to escape exile manifest in the form of the ultra-secret Bluegate Project’s teleportation experiments gone awry. Those tests have done more than bring the vanquished queen and her mighty forces the promise of a conquering return to Earth. Brought out of the past and future to the present, respectively, New Mexico Territory farm girl Joliane ´´Liane” Lecroix and a blaster-armed, Martian-human-cyborg mine worker, the sodbuster’s kid, Liane, dubs ´´Amee”, end up literally running into independent investigative reporter Margaret ´´Mag” Tracer. Led by the ghost-like apparition of Dr. Elizabeth ´´Eliza” Shandrach, the trio soon find themselves in a strange, waterless landscape ruled by Nihilani and her advanced, yet savage, army. They are humanity’s only hope against an impending incursion by a highly advanced army of invisible, disc-riding warriors. Get ready for the ultimate in ´´woman on woman action´´, and, remember, it’s not the size of the gun that matters, it’s knowing when to use it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Wannall.
