Overview

Two diverse branches of humanity-once separated by light years and millenniums-are reunited through a twist of fate. Confronted with a compelling common need for survival, multiple human worlds come together to oppose the devastating aggression of an expanding alien empire: the Kreel. As the Kreel threaten to engulf Earth, its various Governments realize just how far behind the technology power-curve they really are. Lacking superluminal technology, and woefully ignorant of their newfound allies from distant stars, Earth's people are scrambling like backwater cousins to catch-up as humanity is immersed in an interstellar conflict. Earth's tenuous hope for survival rests squarely on the overextended military capability of distant Glas Dinnein's Guardian Force.

Set in the year 2514, Earth Guardian is the second volume of a new SF series, pure science fiction combining the genres of military and high adventure. The first volume is Guardian Force. The sequels are Guardian Probe and Guardian Strike, which GalaxyQuestBooks.com has scheduled for release in 2013.

Meet the Author

Determined to serve his country and contribute to its security, D. Arthur Gusner, at the young age of sixteen, "borrowed: his brother Jack's draft card and joined the United Staes Army.

After three years of honorable service he then sought a formal education at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, where he earned degrees in chemistry and physics. His subsequent career as a physicist for the United States Navy, where he specialized in submarine warfare, inspired him to design and develop the world's first successful submarine weapons systems integrated performance analysis capability.

At the end of the cold war he retired from the field of submarine warfare. He subsequently turned his attention to marine research and exploration, where he has focused on the search for and recovery of historical shipwrecks.

Author of a high adventure and military science fiction series, his extensive experience and submarine warfare background influenced his high adventure books Guardian Force, Earth Guardian and Guardian Probe. D. Arthur Gusner and his yellow Labrador guide dog, Limo, currently live in Cambria on California's Central Coast.

    I had the opportunity to read "Earth Guardian", and it

    I had the opportunity to read "Earth Guardian", and it is amazing! The first book in the series, "Guardian Force", is great, and this one picks up beautifully as the story builds into a stunning sequel. I can't wait until the next book comes out; I'm definitely looking forward to more edge-of-your-seat excitement from Mr. Gusner. Hurry up !!!
