DESCRIPTION:

Scholar was a man with grand ambitions stifled by a mediocre, lonely existence. Quietly, he resented himself for every opportunity he let pass by while those around him found success and satisfaction in a bright and happy world. One day, he stepped outside and the world had ended; the sky was dark and the ground was covered in ash. The people who survived did not want to talk about what had happened. It was not a bomb, or a war, or anything man-made. But from what Scholar could gather, it wasn't natural either. It was something malicious, something monstrous. It tortured the world, then destroyed it. The book begins just over two years after this destruction. Scholar is searching for his place in the new world, as he failed to find his place in the old one.

Ashley Rhodes was a Wall Street womanizer trying to survive in darkness, subconsciously searching for vengeance for the brighter world he once knew.

Cattleprod was a charismatic human trafficker who sees the opportunity to set humanity on the right path.

The Turn is a dark story. There is no white knight, just complicated people in a complicated world, looking for their place, searching through the mysteries of humanity, and the mysteries of this new existence, seeking out or trying to forget the global atrocity that had vanished as mysteriously as it had come.

The story starts off as the world presents itself in nuanced ways to the wide-eyed adventure. There will be moments where you might find yourself lost. Do not be troubled by this. The focus of the story is on the characters, who too are wading through this new world as though through a dark forest. You will come to grasp this world as they do.

DESCRIPTION:

Fatal glitches. A corporate cover-up. And something haunting the depths…

Three years ago, a horrific accident closed ACM-1134, the energy mine on Ketarus-4. Now the mine has reopened, and Justin Barclay has joined the first new batch of miners hired to begin harvesting the energy stored below the planet's surface.

But as he settles into his new job and home, Justin quickly discovers that the mine's polished exterior is masking a host of hidden dangers--some of them fatal. When the mine's technology begins malfunctioning, Justin's coworkers mysteriously disappear, get injured, and some even die. Justin knows something else is going on--and he's the only one willing to do something to stop it.

With his job and his life on the line, Justin works to uncover the mine's darkest secrets to save himself and his fellow workers. But the company doesn't like Justin digging where he shouldn't be, and they're determined to put a stop to his inquest once and for all--at any cost.

As Justin begins to unearth the mine's darkest secrets, he starts to realize that sometimes it's better to let the past stay buried.

The Ghost Mine is a gripping sci-fi/horror novel sure to thrill you and chill you late into the night. If you're a fan of Ridley Scott's Aliens, you'll love this book.

Endorsements:

"Wow! The Ghost Mine is a phenomenal story. Ben Wolf excels at so many elements of storytelling, it's impossible to identify a single gem: richly developed characters; a fascinating and detailed future of machine-human hybrids and deep-space mining operations; an intriguing mystery; shocking-yet-believable twists; breakneck action; and more than a few leave-the-lights-on/eye-watering moments of sheer terror.

Now imagine all this in the hands of a deft wordsmith. Man! Think Aliens meets Ender's Game meets Rambo.

Taut, vivid, and captivating, The Ghost Mine will leave you breathlessly bandaging paper cuts from flipping the pages so fast. This one's a definite winner."

--Robert Liparulo, bestselling author of the Immortal Files and Dreamhouse Kings series

"A snappy, fun, wild ride from hell! Wolf's knockout novel brings all the sci-fi intensity of Ridley Scott's Alien movies together with a Michael Crichton style thriller. When space colonization goes wrong in The Ghost Mine, it means a long, nail-biting night of sheer reading delight! Positively unputdownable!" - Brandon Barr, USA Today Bestseller and author of the Song of the World Series

DESCRIPTION:

"It is absolutely necessary, for the peace and safety of mankind, that some of earth's dark, dead corners and unplumbed depths be let alone; lest sleeping abnormalities wake to resurgent life, and blasphemously surviving nightmares squirm and splash out of their black lairs to newer and wider conquests..."
