Overview

Beta Troops by Leif Erickson

Civil war had gripped the country for sixty years. The only group that was able to stop the wars did so with sheer terror. Liberties stripped, freedoms destroyed, and loyalty was required. Although peace is in the land, even speaking out against the government can cost your life, and this government has plans to expand the empire. Can a group of freedom fights stand up to oppression and tyranny or will the government get their world empire?

People cannot live without water, without air, without food. Go to long without one of the necessities and a person dies. In the new America, or U-Cam, going without a government supplied protein will cause horrible death. The government, ruled by a brutal man, Emperor Ross II and his Prime Minister Garret Boyd, always keeps a large supply of the protein on hand so none of their subjects have to die, unless they speak out against the empire.

Emperor Ross II has assured loyalty to his empire by withholding the protein before, allowing thousands to die, and he has no qualms about doing it again. He only wants peace within the country while he spends his days in a drug-induced fog as he indulges in pleasures all day. If the fear of withholding the protein doesn�t keep the people in line, the fear of his Alpha Troops, genetically engineered killers, seven feet tall, arms and legs like tree trunks, intelligent and fearless, will.

When a group of freedom fighters led by Two Doctors; Doctor Monte Prowl and Doctor Chas Kent, discover a way to defeat the Alpha troops, and where the location of the formula to manufacture the protein is, they launch a desperate attempt to free the country from the Ross Empire. With spies everywhere, and no way to trust anyone, the doctors must use their skills to fly under the radar to disrupt the emperor and his killers.

When the emperor catches wind that plots are against him, he unleashes the deadliest weapon yet, the new Beta Troops; genetic killers who are indestructible, super strong, fast, and smart, just like the Alpha Troops, but the difference is the Beta Troops look like a normal sized human, no way to tell them apart from anyone else. As Emperor Ross II seals off a city, ready to kill all the million inhabitants unless the rebels turn themselves over, can the doctors break the genetics to save humanity or will the empire continue its brutal ways?

About the Author

Leif J. Erickson is a science fiction and fantasy author from a small farming community in west central Minnesota. Using his time wisely when he was a farmer, Leif developed many ideas, characters, and storylines to create over fifty unique first drafts and outlines for stories. From his start in a small town school, to college at North Dakota State University, back to his family farm, then to the bright lights of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and back to his small farming town, Leif has always had a love of writing.

When Leif isn�t writing he can be found with his wife hiking in state parks, canoeing local lakes and rivers, exploring local and regional ghost towns, experiencing museums, or simply reading or hanging out with friends and family. Leif draws on the local nature and ecology to find inspiration for his writing while he also asks what�s possible for technology and the human race, weaving them together for amazing stories that will stay with the reader for years to come. Leif looks forward to having many novel and story releases in the years to come.
