by Robert Jepson

A routine deployment to Afghanistan. One death, and one double leg amputation, hit Mike and his platoon hard. Amongst increasing hostilities, he begins to wonder if he’ll ever make it home. Then his wife suffers a miscarriage. With one final mission remaining, Mike’s thoughts and moods swing from highs to lows, alternating between his life in a combat zone to his family at home.

Chapter 1

Mike caressed the watch on his left wrist. It occurred to him, ironically, that it had no face. It had belonged to his father, but there were no memories. Even the photos of his father, which his mother kept, spurred no hint of recollection. He had left home long be...

The Cull: The Draconian Legacy Book 1
by Robert Jepson

Near to the great pyramids, a team of geologists unearth a strange artifact. Far from being inert, they inadvertently activate it. Soon, the object spawns a rapidly growing plant which carries a lethal virus. As it spreads and the death toll increases, the world economy verges on collapse.

Standing in his way are The Brotherhood, a ancient group whose blood-line and allegiance are tied to a renegade race of aliens.

Ivan fingered the crucifix which hung around his neck, then grasped it in a clenched fist as he squinted through the windscreen. His vision of the runway was obscured by a sudden snowstorm, but it was too late now to abort.

Waters of Salvation: A Story of Adventure, Despair, Love, and Redemption
by Robert Jepson

On a final combat mission in Afghanistan before retirement, a young girl dies in Mike’s arms. The floodgates open; memories from atrocities he has witnessed through his career. Returning home, he receives treatment for Post Traumatic Distress Disorder. He embarks on a soul-searching voyage where the prospect of salvation comes through a young autistic girl with whom he finds a deep empathy. As he begins to grasp the truth, he is unwittingly embroiled in the attempted theft of an ancient Scottish relic. Can he pull back from the edge of the abyss before he loses everything dear to him?
