A great 9 book series by the author of the Peacekeeper series.
This Brimstone and the Companions of Althea book 1 is the first of a 9 book series that is built around nonstop action. It is based on actual characters from several players of an online game.
A note of caution - the lead in material you read is necessary to set the stage for the events that transpire in the series. That said - the remaining 3/4 is pure ACTION!
I suggest the reader peruse the first portion with care as some helps in understanding the storyline.
