About the Book

Three years since surviving the horrors of Desolation Island, second-tier superhero Ben Thomason, a.k.a. "Force", is suspended from his position as Chief Corrections officer at the rebuilt Island penitentiary after a drunken brawl with several disgruntled subordinates. Court-ordered to attend anger management courses, Ben is transported to the Jasper Outpost, a government-funded rehab center specializing in soothing the bruised, battered, and sometimes brittle egos of those within the hero trade.

Joined by a trio of specially endowed but equally troubled teammates, to include the military’s first hybrid human/cybernetic soldier known as Scar, a hulking, female brute cursed with multi-personality disorder named Jekyll-ene and Déjà vu, a time-bending enigma with a deadly secret, Ben soon finds the tranquil settings of the isolated Outpost anything but.

As counselling commences and a blizzard of record proportions cloaks the surrounding Oregonian mountain ranges, a fiery bolt pierces the snow-filled skies, crash-landing directly between the tiny twin cities of Jasper and Boulder Valley.

From the burning wreckage of this downed craft an unimaginable evil will crawl; a mutated monstrosity whose sole reason for existence is the systematic termination of all those unfortunate enough to cross its bloodthirsty path.

Soon, freshly fallen snow and hardened ice caps will stain a dark shade of crimson from the slaughter of innocents, the only thing standing in the way of total annihilation a handful of emotionally scarred, anti-social burnouts once heralded for their unique powers and heroic ways.

Accompanied by a young counsellor self-appointed to chronicle the horrific events as they unfold, the newly formed team of disgruntled misfits soon find themselves in the familiar role of protector for a group of terrified locals transported to the Post for safety.

Forced into a desperate last stand atop the frigid grounds of the Jasper Ridge Outpost, Ben Thomason, infamous as much for his un-PC rants and drunken rages as the wrecking-ball sized fists that are his trademark, will discover that survival atop this particular island isn’t nearly as probable.
