It has been about sixteen years since Dietrich Zimmer and the Neo-Nazis of New Eden were defeated. John Rourke has now settled down with his new wife Emma and his two teenage children. Paul Rubenstein and Annie also have kids as do Michael and Natalia. Wolfgang Mann and Sarah are now married and Mann is president of New Germany. Still there are occasions for conflict. Rourke has to rescue his wife who is kidnapped by Neo-Nazis terrorists. His son Michael is running for President of the United States.
A routine underwater archeological find in the Mediterranean sees the arrival of a new enemy. Men in advanced suits with energy weapons attack the expedition. When its over one of the attackers is revealed to be a clone of Captain Dodd the commander of the Eden project. Dodd died a century ago but someone has cloned him. The evident points to an alien race that intercepted the shuttles and took DNA samples. Other Dodd clones continue to mount attacks. Another alien race show up. The Ki were the Atlanteans of old and have come back after abandoning the Earth due to the grey aliens. The book ends with Michael winning the presidency and the grey aliens attacking the inauguration.
So back in 1993 the series ended. It had a clear and happy ending so I thought that would be the end of John Rourke’s adventures. But Jerry Ahern still have some ideas and was working on getting back the rights to the series. Sadly on July 25th, 2012 he passed away from cancer. He had the rights and had the story plotted out. His widow and best friend took up the reigns and continued the story. I think its a great tribute to his work and glad to see that the series is successfully continuing.
So now its two alien races that are a threat to the human race. Add in some human traitors working with the aliens and you have a great continuation of this series.
