THE COELHO MEDALLION
A DAN KOTLER THRILLER
An ancient medallion is unearthed in Pueblo, Colorado, revealing a secret that will rewrite the history of North America—the Vikings somehow made it to the continent's interior, centuries before Columbus made landfall, and there they built a city of gold.
But today the COELHO MEDALLION has been stolen, and a linguist and researcher has been abducted in connection with the crime. Could the abductors be after the fabled city of gold? Or do they have a more sinister plot in mind?
DAN KOTLER is an independent researcher who often finds himself in more trouble than he was expecting. But when his colleague is abducted he finds himself being investigated by the FBI, he must use all of his brilliance and expertise to find her and absolve himself.
ANWAR ADHAM has plans for a terrorist action on U.S. soil, and information from the Pueblo research site can give him everything he needs to put his plans in motion. Unless Adham is stopped, thousands and possibly millions will die.
Whoever wins this contest of wits and wills will hold the fate of thousands in his hands, and will also lay claim to the fabled city of gold.
It's an adventure that can redefine the history of America as we know it. Kotler finds himself facing off against both the FBI and Adham's terrorist network as he struggles to solve the mystery of Vikings in Colorado, to rescue Evelyn and stop Adham's plans before it's too late.

When Gail McCarthy, granddaughter of one of Manhattan’s wealthiest real estate moguls, brings an ancient stone to Kotler’s attention, he finds himself embroiled once again in intrigue, jeopardy, and mystery. This time he may uncover one of history’s oldest secrets—if he survives long enough.
Working with his friend from the FBI, Agent Roland Denzel, Kotler strikes out on a quest to uncover and solve the Atlantis Riddle, and once again rewrite history as we know it.

THE COMPLETE CITADEL COLLECTION
It’s been over a century since the terrorist attack that nearly ended any chance for humanity to travel to the stars. Then there was the fifty years of war with the plant-like Esool, the rise of a powerful, cult-like anti-colonization group, and the increasing tensions between the wealthy upper class and the lower working class.
But we’re getting better.
Except for the part where the first joint colony effort between humans and the Esool results in the colony ship Citadel crashing on the wrong planet, with no hope of returning home.
Now the struggling colony itself led by a former alien enemy, and hidden among them is both the saboteur and the most notorious terrorist history has ever known. Survival will mean pulling together and doing the impossible a few dozen times.
Unless, of course, a brand new alien species puts a stop to the whole thing.
And the colonists thought it was a rough ride coming down.
CITADEL: FIRST COLONY
BOOK ONE OF CITADEL
It’s been more than a century since humanity escaped the overpopulation of Earth, expanding out among the stars. We’ve faced and overcome war with an alien race. We’ve survived terrorist attacks meant to end colonization. We’ve thrived despite unregulated class distinctions, separating the wealthy from the working class.
What comes next may be the end of it all.
A lone colony of human castaways, led by a former alien enemy, find themselves at the mercy of a saboteur and a plot to end humanity’s unrestricted travel among the stars. This could be the finale of the colonies and the end of a species. Everything depends on how smart - and how forgiving - humanity can actually be.
CITADEL: PATHS IN DARKNESS
BOOK TWO OF CITADEL
Against all odds, on an unchartered world, the souls of First Colony have been restored to life, and a centuries old wrong has been righted—sort of.
On the planet’s surface, a young woman struggles to reclaim her mind from the strange aftereffects of the cancellation wave. High above, the struggling colony’s last hope of going home slowly falls from orbit, and two men face death to prevent it.
And as the human colonists and their Esool captain struggle for survival, a new species emerges that can be the colony's savior—or its most dangerous enemy.
As if it needed more.
CITADEL: CHILDREN OF LIGHT
BOOK THREE OF CITADEL
The Citadel tower stands in ruins, while hundreds lie injured or dead. On distant Earth, a powerful madman prepares to seize control of the lightrail, in a move that will change the fate of humanity and the Esool alike.
All hope rests with a new species—represented by a young boy with unknown intentions and unlimited power. Will he be the savior of the colonies, or just speed up their destruction?
As one story ends, a universe of possibilities begins. Citadel and her crew become the pivot point of events that will echo throughout the universe, and history, for centuries to come.
CITADEL: THE VALUE OF WAR
A CITADEL NOVELLA
As his officers and soldiers invade a conquered human vessel, Captain Somar of the Esool is troubled by the ongoing war. Are these two species doomed to war until one of them is extinct.
As the humans bunker themselves on the bridge of their vessel, the Esool prepare for a protracted conflict. But the discovery of a surprising cargo changes everything.
Now Somar will risk his very life to retrieve this cargo and bring some measure of peace to the humans and the Esool.
A CITADEL UNIVERSE SHORT STORY
Sylar just wanted to impress the guys. It wasn't until everything blew up that he figured he should rethink things.
So he fibbed a little. Maybe he didn't actually have a girlfriend in the Colonies. So what?
Now, as Sylar careens out of control in a makeshift space craft, surfing a wave of debris, he's really starting to rethink some of his life choices.
Colony Girl is a short story set in the Citadel Universe.
The Ataxica, a brutal and chaotic enemy, have wiped out most of humanity, leaving behind only children. Years after that disastrous first contact, a remnant military force known as the Service represents humanity's last hope. But hope is fading fast, as the Ataxica have developed a new technology that gives them a significant advantage.
On the eve of a devastating attack, members of the Service discover a lone figure — an artificially intelligent being, floating in space. Once revived, "Tin Man" may hold the key to humanity's survival, as well as the secret of their deadliest enemy. If he doesn't destroy them all first.
Charles Martins, prisoner number 61789, is serving time in a body suit—a prison cell that he wears 24/7. One part prison cell, one part life support system, it takes care of every biological need, provides video for re-education, and even gives him psycho therapy from an AI psychiatrist. What it doesn't do is allow him to touch or feel anything. And while it monitors his every action, it prevents him from doing anything that feels real.
When Charles learns about the Edge—the edge of the world, maybe, or maybe the edge of some virtual reality—he volunteers for the most dangerous community service the penal colony offers. He risks life and any chance of future freedom to enter the Red Zone, where his job is to remove an ocean of zone sludge and earn time off of his sentence.
Charles wants to escape, but he may not like what he finds on the other side of the edge.
What if you discovered the ultimate power source—something that could redefine what it means to be human. What if you discovered, in the simplest of places, that the universe was no longer out of reach?
And what if you learned that we've been though this before, and it didn't end well?
ZERO is a short story about second chances, and all the risks that come with them.
SIX TALES OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
We think we know what it means to be alive, but what if the rules suddenly changed? Humanity has always been at the top of the intellectual food chain, but what if we woke up tomorrow to discover that was no longer the case?
Uncanny Divide features six tales that explore what it means to be truly alive and aware, and what happens when humanity is no longer the benchmark for intelligence.
Authors Nick Thacker, Kevin Tumlinson, and Will Flora bring you six stories that will make you wonder, make you smile, and make you worry about what's coming next.

So, of course, Sawyer Jackson and his friends and family are on their way there.
As Sawyer’s destiny, to save the Omniverse from the dark and twisted Aeodyumus, comes into sharper focus, things get fuzzy around the edges of Sawyer’s reality. Difficult choices, questionable allies, and new enemies all conspire to make it difficult to know what path to take, and who to trust.
