When criminal elements collide, the rules of the jungle will prevail, and those unprepared will pay the highest price.

“A piña colada with rum, bullets, and bloodshed. This Banana Republic should come with a travel advisory.” ~ Jim Hamilton, Author of “The Last Entry”

Richie Makepeace flees to South America after being framed for a double-murder in Miami. He settles in La Vaca, a classic tiny town on the edge of the Colombian jungle, and meets Vicki Freeman, a top fashion model with a thing for “bad boys.” While Richie resists falling for her, she and her rich boyfriend devise a wild, “adventurous” plan that relies on Richie helping them.

Richie does not want to get involved, but with cash running out, he concedes and sets it all up. He should have known it would lead to chaos, backstabbing, and bloodshed.

“Should be taught in Thrillers 101! Taut, twisty, and filled with danger at every turn!” ~ Ty Spencer Vossler, Author of “Deep Mud”

As he prepares to flee his suburban Chicago home, a knock upon the front door delivers a most unlikely character, one who sets Jack’s personal life spinning out of control.

Book 1: Foreign Land (Release Date: 13 September 2021)

A father struggles to keep his son and his colony alive on a dangerous planet while fighting off alien-induced hallucinations.

Hope runs deep as Smith leaves humanity’s first generation ship to lay roots with his wife and son in the open air of a new planet. When the colony ship breaks apart on entry, however, countless lives are lost, including Smith’s beloved wife. Soul-crushed, he’s left to fight for the survival of his son and those around him on a planet that’s far more dangerous and bizarre than their research had suggested.

Back on the generation ship, Smith’s apprentice Tashon searches for answers. What happened to his beloved mentor, Smith, and the colony? He soon discovers that the expedition’s leaders are focused on a much more imminent danger, one that could prove the destruction of the entire generation ship.

These two stories crash together in a fight for survival, against an enemy that no one saw coming.

An avid reader and writer since middle school, C.J. Sears is the author of the “This Fallen World” horror/thriller series. In 2013, he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing from Arkansas Tech University. After languishing a few years at a mundane job, C. J. set out to pursue his passion. Inspired by Twin Peaks and Resident Evil, he began working on what would eventually become The Shadow Over Lone Oak – the first of several books chronicling the adventures of eccentric Special Agent Llewyn Finch.

In the fall of 2016, C.J. gave his life to Christ. That faith now informs his storytelling and ongoing blog. He believes that fiction is a uniquely valuable medium for delivering both entertainment and essential truths. His emphasis is on the power of the parable rather than preachiness, and he affirms that no message should get in the way of a good story.

C.J.’s range of interests and hobbies include gaming, occasional poetry, swimming, and amateur photography. He mostly spends time with his family and loved ones, particularly his two rambunctious cats and silly goof dog. The quiet life suits him fine, but when a new vision of monsters and mystery beckons, he’s no stranger to answering the call.
