The Eden Paradox  

A murder... A new planet mankind desperately needs... A thousand year old conspiracy... What really awaits us on Eden? Fifty years from now, a new planet is found which appears to be too good to be true, but two missions have failed to return. Blake and his crew lead the final attempt to bring back good news, but a hidden enemy aims first to prevent their arrival, and then to ensure they can never reveal what really lies in wait for us on Eden. Back on Earth, Eden mission analyst Micah Sanderson evades assassins and tries to work out who he can trust, in a race against time to unravel the Eden Paradox

Eden's Endgame

Galactic war rages. Qorall has unleashed a new weapon that is sweeping like wildfire across the galaxy. The Alicians have taken sixty human hostages back to their homeworld, Savange, and a small elite team is sent to infiltrate their fortress city to free them. Kalaran awakens an ancient race that almost destroyed the galaxy two million years earlier. The Spiders and the Hohash have decided to act...

This book is about ultimate stakes, and will test men, women and aliens beyond their limits. Heroes, worlds, and entire civilisations will fall...

This book is filled with action, adventure, tragedy, betrayal, and hope. This is where it all must end, and where the Eden Paradox finally comes full circle.
