      Intrepid Force is a fast-paced futuristic action adventure, the first in a series of novels about an elite fighting team in an age of bionics, genetic engineering, and interplanetary travel.

    The last time the Intrepid Force fought Gaith Corbalew there were only four survivors out of a team of twenty-two, but they had beaten him. They had broken the back of his interplanetary regime and imprisoned its leader.

    Ten years later Gaith Corbalew was freed from prison by an unknown enemy using a nightmarish technology unknown to late twenty-first century science. Bound by a promise, three of the four Intrepid Force survivors assembled a new team, trained them, and outfitted them with cutting edge weaponry. One of them was Wendy Blake, the bionic daughter of one of the Intrepid Force dead. She joined the team to even the score. One of them had an uncanny ability to dream the future. He joined the team because he believed it was part of Godís plan. Another of them was a genetically engineered giant. He joined because he was on a quest for something, but he didnít know what. The others joined for reasons of their own. Among them were a martial arts expert with a super-fast rewired nervous system, an interplanetary marine with an exoskeleton, an expert in probes and nanotechnology, a Recombinant with an "electric eel" nervous system, and a teenage medical doctor. In the first months of the team's existence they faced a mysterious cult in the swamps of Louisiana, fought computer generated shadows in a terrifying virtual reality world, and faced Gaith Corbalew's army in a battle for the lives of 25,000 colonists on Venus. And that was only the beginning.
