The current-day city of Fort Brazos, Texas, and the nearby Joint Reserve Base have been abducted — scooped up whole and deposited inside a vast artificial hollow world, nearly 4000 miles long, hidden and disguised to look like an asteroid.

A City in a Bottle.


Thousands are dead. Alien creatures have begun to attack. Who has done this and why? Are the humans to be lab rats? Slaves? Or is there some other, terrible purpose… or a greater destiny?


A worthy addition to the Space Opera genre!

Fun, original, engaging and with some interesting, well-drawn characters. Highly recommended!Ron Miller

Apocalyptic Hard Sci-fi

A military town “awakens” to familiar surroundings but their world is turned outside-in!

Well written with well drawn characters. The predicament the town of Fort Brazos finds themselves in and the mystery around it is what keeps the reader turning pages. As it all unravels newer mysteries are revealed all the way until the end. This work keeps the reader guessing.

I’m looking forward to the next one in the series!

Non-Fiction reader enjoyed this Fiction

90% of the books I read are non-fiction but chapter 1 of this book had me interested from the get-go. I must admit that being a resident of the Lone Star state sucked me into this story about West Texas. What I did not expect is what I learned crisis management from the story.
