Publisher Description

HE RAISED AN ARMY 

AGAINST THOSE WHO 

TOOK EVERYTHING FROM HIM


They should have picked their enemies more carefully.


Five centuries from now, on a remarkably Earthlike planet that is mankind's sole colony in space, religious fanatics called the "Salafi Ikhwan" have murdered the uncle of former colonel Patrick Hennessey. That was their first mistake, because uncle was rich and Hennessey was rather a good colonel. But they also murdered Hennessey's wife, Linda, and their three small children, and that was their worst mistake for she was the only restraint Hennessey had ever accepted.


From the pile of rubble and the pillar of fire that mark the last resting place of Linda Hennessey and her children arises a new warrior-Carrera, scourge of the Salafis. He will forge an army of ruthless fanatics from the decrepit remains of failed state's military. He will wage war across half a world. He will find those who killed his family. He will destroy them, and those who support them, utterly, completely, without restraint or remorse.


Only when he is finished will there be peace: the peace of an empty wind as it blows across a desert strewn with the bones of Carrera's enemies.

A desert called peace

An exceptionally written book. Spoiler here if your a socialist UN loving Moslem loving idiot leave us and our country alone for we shall rise and crush you under the democratic might and rain hell upon your fascist heads leaving you for dead.

I’d give it 0 stars if I could

Just a horrible, racist military book masquerading as sci-fi. An attack identical to 9/11 happens, killing the main character’s wife and kids, and the author then has Muslims celebrating in the streets, who the main character then murders. That’s where I stopped. F Tom Kratman
