T.R. Harris – REV: Renegades

REVs are mankind’s ultimate mechanized warriors, chemically-enhanced Marines with super strength, speed and durability, and the closest thing Humanity has to real-life, homegrown supermen. They’re also Earth’s not-so-secret weapon against the alien Antaere, habitually leaving wide swaths of enemy dead everywhere they go. They’re respected by our allies and feared by our foes.

That is, until a recent REV mission goes horribly wrong, turning the planets of the Grid against the Humans.

Now Lt. Zac Murphy and his team of super REVs are hunted by the aliens and hated by their fellow Humans. Only by proving that the original mission was a setup from the beginning can they clear their names and restore the reputation of the REVs.

But that’s easier said than done, especially when everyone on a dozen worlds knows your name and your face, and there’s nowhere to hide. And as the REVs fight for redemption, Zac learns a terrible truth about the Program, a truth that will impact the future of mankind: Zac is not only a new breed of REV…he’s a new breed of man….

From heroes to hunted in the blink of an eye, it’s a strange game fate plays. Will the REVs have the skill and ability not only to play the game…but to survive it as well? That remains to be seen.

white studious

THE REEF is a sequel to TITLE FIGHT, and one of the novellas that supplement that vast, varied, and deeply diverse Galactic Football League (GFL) series. The story picks up about two years after Chaiyal North is exiled to The Reef, an ancient, formerly-alive carcass on the edge of known space. Essentially a frontier with accompanying lack of lawfulness, The Reef is a place where people go to escape their past and build a future.

The future that Chai, now known as Lash Kari, builds for himself is less than purposeful, as he wallows in self-pity and dejection until his own choices catch up to him and force him to make deliberate changes to the way he lives.

Essentially a tale of redemption, THE REEF takes Chai on a path he never would have considered for himself, but ends up fitting as well as the championship belt he left behind. Full of new characters, locales and creatures, along with familiar settings and a few recognizable faces, THE REEF is a fun and exciting sidebar to the larger GFL universe.
