AUTHOR -- Wrath of the Testament

 

It is an America gone mad from the addiction to war and desperate for resources beyond her own borders.  A military dictatorship controls the country and life is grim. The Republic is fighting for its very survival.

 

In the Pacific Northwest, the spirit of freedom remains alive, despite the harshest of oppression. They call themselves Cascadians, after that reckonable range of mountains which shields them from the east.  And whose shaggy peaks can be seen from the helms of the San Juan Island fishing fleet and by those, as well, who survive in the curve of Bellingham and its harbor, the site of a concentration camp as venal as any served up during the Holocaust.

 

This is the world of the United States Coast Guard cutter Testament, a cybernetic patrol boat, and her six-person crew.  Her mission, and those of her sister craft, is simple.  Quench the rebellion and stop the flow of Americans seeking refuge in Canada. Kill when expedient.  Deliver the survivors to the Bellingham Re-Education Center.  A simple operational order and one which has served America well.  Until Testament.  For a preview and purchase information, please go here.
