When a chance encounter at a roadhouse ends in violence, former police officer Tom Wilner discovers two ancient warring races who have been manipulating power on Earth for centuries, and are about to battle for ultimate supremacy.

Blackwell North Amer

The world has been shattered. Disease and war have ravaged the Earth. A resurgent Germany once again threatens Europe, and the United States is engaged in the Middle-East while New York sits, an empty, radioactive ruin. The city of Miami has become a virtual prison, home to the worst life has to offer.

Tom Wilner lives on the outskirts of this foresaken realm. He's what this future passes off as a police officer. With his family shattered, Wilner is just a pale version of the police hero he once was. When a chance encounter in a rundown roadhouse erupts in violence, Wilner is forced to step in.

His exploration into the violence of that evening leads him onto the path of two ancient warring races. They have been manipulating power and control on Earth for centuries, and are about to enter into a battle for ultimate supremacy. Unless Tom Wilner puts an end to their fury.

Fast paced story.The settings are interesting however the characters are pretty stock and not well developed. The descriptive narrative seems a bit old fashioned. Okay for an airplane read if you enjoy sci-fi.
