For a devastating new force to rise, another must fall... China has a problem. Their limited supply of oil is threatening to derail its economic growth and prosperity. Having failed to win access to a greater supply diplomatically, they set their backup plan in motion: an invasion of Taiwan. The U.S. Pacific Fleet is the major military force in the area, and is sent in to repel the invading Chinese forces. But after a decades-long, top-secret buildup, China has military capabilities far greater than the United States is aware of, and the U.S. Fleet is wiped out, leaving them free to put their true plan into motion. While the Atlantic Fleet surges westward to defend its allies and respond to the destruction of their counterparts, it falls to an unlikely alliance of three people to stop this incursion and prevent an all-but-inevitable global war. An absolutely scintillating military thriller with jaw-dropping action and suspense, perfect for fans of Stephen Coonts, Clive Cussler and Kyle Mills.

Plunged into the icy waters of the Hudson...God spared Frederick Berretta's life in an instant -- and changed his heart forever. Frederick Berretta was an amateur pilot himself, so when U.S. Airways Flight 1549 struck a flock of geese and lost both engines, minutes after takeoff from Laguardia Airport on that fateful afternoon of January 15, 2009, he knew before most of his fellow passengers that something was seriously wrong. As the roar of the jets quieted and the aircraft ceased to climb, as the pilot guided the powerless plane towards a desperate crash landing and announced, "Brace for impact," Berretta fingered the prayer book in his pocket and tried to prepare himself for death. A multitude of thoughts flooded his mind all at once. He reminded himself that the odds of surviving a water landing were slim to none. He thought of his wife and his four children, and how they would miss him. He remembered he had just been to confession and to Mass, and he wondered if his soul would be ready to meet the Lord. And he knew he had to pray. "God, please be merciful to us, for the sake of your Son," he whispered. "Please spare us. I trust in you. Jesus, I trust in you. Mother of God, please pray for us." At that very instant, Berretta felt a "push" or "nudge" on his conscience; a state of awareness he'd never before experienced; and a keen realization that he had to do something. But what? Then God's voice sounded strong and clear in the depths of his soul: Are you going to accept My will for your life? For Frederick Berretta, the events of that fateful January day were the crystallizing moment of a lifetime of conversion. This story tells how he lost his childhood faith and as a young adult embraced a selfish, worldly life, how he suffered through family turmoil and the death of a child, and how by God's grace he slowly returned to the Church, humbled and grateful. God used the "Miracle on the Hudson" to confirm him in his faith and set him on fire to share it with others. Flight of Faith is the inspiring true story of how God works in our lives in simple and extraordinary ways. Read more at the Flight of Faith website.

Thirty-five-year-old Hank Foster, a former Special Forces soldier still reeling over the loss of his leg in combat, is recruited into a clandestine organization dedicated to attacking religious institutions. Impatient with the movement's slow progress, Hank subverts the powerful organization and uses their vast network to perpetrate a hoax he feels will rock the world and push the Iconoclast organization's agenda into the spotlight. The hoax succeeds beyond his wildest dreams and sets into motion a chain of events that bring a real extraterrestrial presence into the open. Earth is rocked by global catastrophe on a level never before imagined, and humanity is confronted by the prospect of alien invasion. Hank discovers a conspiracy as old as time itself. He learns he is responsible for the calamity facing humanity, and what's more, he learns he is the one man capable of exposing the truth that may lead to mankind's salvation. On its exterior, Paradigm Shift engages the reader with a visual, action-packed, Hollywood-styled blockbuster, but on a deeper, psychological level, the reader is taken along the hero's mythic journey to ultimately confront the true nature of humanity.
