Overview

Award Winner!

San Francisco Book Festival Awards, 2nd Place, Science Fiction

On a distant planet of the Homeworld Alliance, Dr. Stephen Weller, acclaimed expert in behaviour, is about to penetrate one of the great mysteries of his field.

After months of determined planning and care, he will finally enter Altair Base, a high security experimental research facility, whose dark work has as its only focus the war efforts against the hostile planets of the Outworlds.

There he will meet the being known as Tau 4, the terrible, and now uncontrollable brainchild of Dyle Carzon – brilliant, enigmatic, and ruthless – the force behind a military project that has traveled a shadowed and increasingly bloody path from medical miracle to the edge of horrific destruction.

But Weller is not what he appears to be.

This is a story of deceit and betrayal, of obsession and determination. It chronicles the universal struggle between strength and right, the clash between creator and created. TAU 4 takes the reader to strange worlds of storm and ancient jungle, to the life and death battle of a warrior people and to the unavoidable conflict of a man who refuses to accept the limits of his own humanity, and a creature who is just beginning to learn her own.

    The Killing Machine

    The perfect killing machine. That¿s what the Homeworld Alliance wants in their war against the Outworlds. But the perfect killing machine in this case is made of flesh and blood. A living breathing organism so cunning and capable that it¿s very existence is keep secret. But we¿re not talking some strange ¿Alien¿ type life form here. This perfect killing machine is the brainchild of one Dyle Carzon, an enigmatic and ruthless individual whose medical brilliance has traveled a bloody road that will certainly lead to a terrible holocaust. Enter Dr. Stephen Weller, behavioral specialist, who is brought to Altair Base to meet Carzon¿s brainchild, Tau 4. Weller will soon learn that there is more going on here than meets the eye. Carzon¿s obsession forces Weller into a clash between creator and his creation as the young specialist confronts the bitter irony of deceit and betrayal. V.J. Waks has penned a well written tale that will pull the reader into a conflict that has transcended the ages as well as planets in the far reaches of space. A great read.

    Read now, sleep later ...

    Settle in for a wonderful adventure that reads beautifully, like we haven't seen in a long time. Really strong, provocative characters, especially Tau. Great start for a terrific new series. Striking ... and appropriate ... book cover, too.

    outstanding writing with exceptional imagery! A must read for sci fi fans!

    The author takes you through a intricate journey with writing that gives rise to engrossing imagery, better than any 'virtual' process could do. A must read for sci-fi fans.
