Timberwolf

By Tom Julian

Action & adventure, Sci-Fi | Paperback, eBook


We've pushed in to the galaxy and met plenty of aliens... and we've fought and destroyed them all! That was until humanity met the Arnock — mind-controlling arachnids that drove us insane on contact. Timberwolf, a former special opps soldier, was once captured by the Arnock and driven to near-madness. He can now "hear" the Arnock in his head. He's gone on multiple suicide missions and come back unscathed — the alien presence in his mind forces him to survive. Emanuel Gray used to be Timberwolf's commander and mentor. A former General, now religious fanatic — Gray believes our peace with the Arnock is a sin. He's a wanted man and has gone rogue. He's hell-bent on securing a secret weapons factory on the planet Highland and wiping the Arnock out for good. Timberwolf now works for the Department of Peace Enforcement. He "listens" for an Arnock attack and hunts for the outlaw Gray. When the old friends but new enemies cross paths, Timberwolf chases Gray to the weapons factory world of Highland. When the Arnock arrive, it becomes a battle for the deadliest weapons in the galaxy. Timberwolf will have to choose between getting the alien spider out his head or taking out Gray — all while millions of lives hang in the balance. "Timberwolf is what you'd get if Dirty Harry and Ripley had a son."

There comes a time in every novelist’s journey when he starts to feel that the ladder he is building to the sky may not have all the nuts and bolts. That what he’s stepping on rung by rung might collapse. I was there in a bad way during the writing of my first book, Timberwolf. I came to a point when I looked at my pages and I didn’t really have an idea of how to get from where I was, to where I needed to be. Let me explain.

What you're in for... "Timberwolf Velez is the corrective. He's what you'd get if Dirty Harry and Ripley married and had a son." "The action is simply amazing; it makes putting the book down nearly impossible." "Brilliantly crafted, this tale is simultaneously chilling and uplifting." "Rarely see any sci-fi stories wherein the humans are the oppressors over alien races. The originality of the plot adds to the enjoyment of the book." "An extremely well written, fast paced and highly entertaining military science fiction adventure." "True to the best science fiction stories, Timberwolf has a human heart; it’s not about the combat suits or space ships, it’s about the people and their motivations for doing what they do." "Characters in Timberwolf are thoughtfully developed with great depth and the action is described in outstanding detail that puts you right on the pages with them." "Action packed! More now, please. Like, right now...please?!" "Skillfully plotted, with well-drawn characters that have subtle shading, Timberwolf is a fast-paced story that is immensely readable." "Some of the set pieces – including one where Timberwolf faces off against Wrath, a ferocious bio-mechanical beast that takes no prisoners – feature some of the best action writing I’ve read in a long time."

Here's a free Timberwolf short called "Killing Hannibal." It's about the trauma of contact with alien species. It's a macabre black comedy. http://zharmaeblog.wordpress.com/2015/10/09/killing-hannibal/

Love this review: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/RY33458NZXIIK

Excellently crafted story. Both the plot and characters are well developed in depth and breadth. Proof a great story can be told in a reasonable length. Rarely see any scifi stories wherein the humans are the oppressors over alien races. The originality of the plot adds to the enjoyment of the book. Timberwolf, the main character is a man of few words but considered action. He is capable of extreme violence but only employees it according to his own sense of justice and not that of his masters. The story is logical and well ordered in the world created by Mr. Julian. There are no cheap plot twists or out of nowhere characters used to move the story along. The author created a universe to tell the tale of Timberwolf and remains true to the universe he created. I look forward to next book!

OK - people have been asking why this is listed in "Satire." It's like a satire in the way that Starship Troopers (film) was a satire. It's an anti-war book that's filled to the gills with - admittedly awesome - fighting and combat. It shows you the absurdity of violence, greed, religious intolerance and politics by washing it down with sweet cocktail of mech-suits, giant psychic spiders and super-weapons. You can read it for the subtext or enjoy it in this way... "Some of the set pieces – including one where Timberwolf faces off against Wrath, a ferocious bio-mechanical beast that takes no prisoners – feature some of the best action writing I’ve read in a long time." ::: )
