The electric debut in the wild treasure-hunting sci-fi adventure series! When space pirate Kip Keene crash lands in the Andes after millennia-long cryogenic deep sleep, he awakens to find an unfamiliar world threatened by an old friend. This former ally seeks a powerful Incan artifact that can fix their ruined space craft and return them home - with one problem. Activating the artifact will vaporize the Earth's atmosphere, killing all life on the planet within days. To save a planet he barely knows, Keene - with the help of rogue FBI Agent Samantha Strike, who has a personal stake in the matter - must uncover the secrets of the Lost City of the Incas before the world ends. But in saving this world, Keene might have to destroy his one chance of ever seeing home again.

From the Author:

The Kip Keene series blends high-stakes, fast-paced adventure with science fiction - Indiana Jones & Clive Cussler meets shades of Star Trek.

  2. The Ruby Rattlesnake - Kip Keene finds evidence that Atlantis is real - and might threaten the existence of the world.
  3. The Silver Songbird - Kip Keene must travel back in time to 19th century China when an old friend threatens to destroy history - and erase Keene.
  4. The Diamond Dragon - Kip Keene finds a mysterious portal in a strange rural town leading to the mythical land of Shambhala and a 2,000-year-old prophecy decreeing the end of the world.
  5. The Jade Jaguar - when his sister is kidnapped, Kip Keene must down the truth about Roswell, NM - and the alien artifacts left behind.
  6. The Golden Gazelle - coming Q2/Q3 2016
