Overview

THE OLD GODS ARE RETURNING-
AND SOME OF THEM ARE NOT
FRIENDLY!

When Derek Secrest was suddenly pulled out of Naval flight officer school to take part in a top secret government project involving telepathy—because tests showed that he had a strong latent talent for psi powers— he thought things couldn't get weirder. He was wrong.

Soon he was contacted by a mysterious woman who could open portals at will through spacetime. Her powers seemed godlike—and they were. Millennia ago, extra-dimensional beings with great powers had come to earth and taken on human form, remembered in legends as gods and goddesses—and titans, the ancient enemies of the gods. The godlike beings had driven off the titans, but now the old enemy is returning, with a new plan to use humans with psionic abilities to rule the Earth, and not be driven from it this time. And the titans always did have a fondness for human sacrifice.

Unless Derek and a handful of other telepaths can join forces with the ancient gods to defeat the titans, the world will be plunged into a new dark age of terror and death. Even so, judging from mythology, how much can you really trust a god. . .

    exciting binding of mythology, horror, fantasy, and science fiction

    All Derek Secrest wants is to fly, which is why he is flight training at Pensacola trying to make the grade as a Naval Aviation Officer. However, when tests prove he has strong telepathic abilities, he is yanked out of school to work for Dr. Kronenberg and a top-secret agency. Derek uses his newly discovered powers to thwart a terrorist plot. <P>However, the terrorist leaders are not normal humans, but instead are remnants of Ancient Greece with superior technology and magic fueled by genocidal human sacrifices. Their partners are even more malevolent as the Titans want pandemic human destruction. Derek and other telepathics join with the Gods of Olympus to stop the Titans and their friends. However, their new allies are also quite wary of human psi abilities that may prove more powerful than the magic of the Gods. <P>FORGE OF THE TITANS is an exciting binding of mythology, horror, fantasy, and science fiction into an entertaining tale. The story line makes believers of the audience that the Greek Gods and their enemies, and magic and psionic skills exist as Steve White provides powerful support to each element within the framework of the action. Derek is a delightful ¿Greek¿ hero with a powerful support cast (friend and foe) so that the wide gamut of genre fans will fully appreciate a wonderful novel. <P>Harriet Klausner
