It's been around nine long months since the United States spiraled into chaos due to a cascading systems failure. From the recesses of a fractured government comes a plan to restore order and rescue what remains of the population. The first step comes with restoring power. But what if having access to electricity came at such a price that many - like Jim Powell, his friends, and his neighbors - would rather face a future in the dark.

The decision to splinter backfires. When Lauren and the others leave the safety of the valley in search of supplies and aid, they’re trapped, captured, and tortured. Escape seems impossible…if they’re to survive, it will be only be by rescue, and not without blood on their hands and tears in their eyes. Could you watch one of your own be beaten? The group’s captors are coldblooded and ruthless, and they senselessly brutalize without pity. Despite Lauren’s bravery in the face of insuperable odds, she finds herself heartbroken. Can she still find the will to keep fighting?

This book is a call to return to our American roots; to remember our heritage and birthright. Most importantly, it is a reminder that our oaths are binding, and we have a responsibility to ourselves and our posterity to honor them. Douglas Hogan writes in a style that is both direct and candid. No words are minced; there is no "beating around the bush" or "tip-toeing through tulips". Douglas says what he means, and his incredible passion is ample evidence that he means what he says.

Oath Takers is a powerful and thought provoking read. Mr. Hogan has done a masterful job of distilling our Constitution and Bill of Rights down to its component parts so that it is easy to understand. He has also given a clear and concise explanation of how our liberties have been and are continuing to be eroded. Although I am not is service to our country I am a patriot. As such, I feel it is my obligation to affirm and defend the Constitution just as anyone who has taken the oath would. Thank you for the reminder!

Follow Nathan, Jess, Denny, and others as they struggle through a post-apocalyptic America, where the only law is martial! Their struggles take them from the comforts of their southern Illinois homestead, to the brutal realities of an America where liberty is no longer a right, and survival is of the fittest.

No communication. Limited power. An unbreakable will to survive. A violent blast of solar magnetic radiation plunges much of Earth into darkness. From the decaying orbit of the powerless ISS to a devolving Southeast Texas neighborhood and a secret doomsday bunker buried deep underneath the Colorado Rockies, The SpaceMan Chronicles tells the story of a stranded astronaut, his family and friends on the ground, and a shadowy conspiracy to rebuild the world in the shape of a new society.

In an impossible situation, our story of a mini ice age starts with hopefulness spanning to heartbreak. How will Bishop and the others survive impossible odds as they seek to bring those they love to shelter. And is the Osprey, and all those on board, truly gone forever? How will Jax and the others make their way on such a perilous journey? The brutality of survival in this post-apocalyptic world leaves little hope for humanity after the Maunder Minimum. Perhaps they're lost after all.

From the best-selling author of the Graham's Resolution series comes book two in the Surrender the Sun series. Conditions in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, are proving unsustainable in the year 2030. The mini ice age, caused by the Maunder Minimum effects, are brutal at best, and life systems are limited and failing fast. Bishop seeks a safe haven for his new family and the only answer leads him back to his nightmares. Leaving the comfort of their luxury hotel is their only answer, but the journey may prove more perilous than their current existence.
