9781450216364: Fortress Earth: Dreamland

Earth is a small blue world in a solar system barely hanging on to the edge of a galaxy between 200 and 400 billion stars. The race of beings that inhabit this world, the more ancient and evolved races of the galaxy consider to be quite primitive. They are isolated, still absorbed in themselves, and alone in their view of the universe. That was how their world was supposed to stay...until one of the most war-driven race s of the galaxy discovers a rare resource on this tiny, backwater planet, and they want it. Duke Ross is unusual for a brash young fighter pilot. Underneath the head strong and cocky exterior is the heart of a family man who loves his wife and child, and enjoys the peace presented by an unusual, non-aggressive martial art. As hostile invaders from the stars tear his world out from under him, Duke finds himself becoming the chosen champion of alien beings that wish to defend the Earth, and restore its rightful peace in the galaxy. They bestow upon him a secret which can unlock an unimaginable power, and grant the Earth and humanity it's salvation. But the journey to the mythical Air Force base in the Nevada desert, known to pilots as "Dreamland," will be long and dangerous for a pilot without wings... Accompanied by his faithful wingman, an incorrigible ex-girlfriend turned reporter, and a few other skilled allies, Duke must complete a sojourn across a devastated American landscape. They must fight their way past and elude a very persistent alien general, who has made it his mission to capture Duke and the technology he holds. But not even Duke knows the full extent of the secret power he carries, or what will be revealed when he reaches his goal. And in the shadows an even more sinister and ancient power plots the downfall of much more than just the tiny island fortress known as "Earth".
