This weekend I was looking forward to spending some time outside but as everyone in the UK knows the weather is notorious for being changeable so my plans got put on hold. Being held hostage inside by the, at times, torrential rain gave me the time to get some writing done though. I managed to finish off a Col Sec short story that is a lead in for the next book in the series. Again this short features Captain Tony Storm, callsign Guardian and his team, Hacker, Cowboy and Hellcat. Getting to terms with the changes that come about in book 7, The Blackstar Gambit which is coming soon, they are sent on a mission to a planet called Potera where they are to apprehend a terrorist they have been searching for for some time. As in all the Col Sec series, things do not go as planned and mayhem ensues, but then again isn’t that what my readers have come to expect by now?
As the story comes to a close we are left with questions that need answers which will only come in the adventure that follows and I suspect, it may be the largest book in the series to date.
I mentioned the changes that happen in book 7, The Blackstar Gambit heralds in some drastic changes to the Col Sec Universe. Events unfold which ensure that things will never return to how they were before. A danger tied to an ancient Earth cult threatens the lives of millions on Earth in particular and around the Confederation in general. This danger threatens to bring the entire Confederation to its knees in a bid to take over the control of the galaxy. Anyone foolish enough to stand in their way will either bow down or get destroyed.
If that whets your appetite for destruction then look out for the release date for this new thrilling adventure.
