A space fantasy adventure spanning thousands of years: the Forgotten Gods want their universe back and will burn it down to get it.

In the 3000 years since the gods almost destroyed the universe, humans have risen from the ashes and established a vast empire spanning more than 700 planets. To protect them from the return of the gods, the Conclave was established. Together with the Inquisition and the Prekhauten Guard, they watch the universe for signs of heresy, and worse. But a rot festers within humanity’s soul. A darkness approaches that only a few can see. Should it succeed, the universe will be plunged into chaos and unending civil war.

Dreams of Winter is the explosive first volume in the Forgotten God’s Tales. Fans of Warhammer 40k, the Malazan Book of the Fallen, and David Weber will devour this book and clamor for more.

The Lazarus Men: A Lazarum Men Agenda

A thrilling sci-fi noir adventure combining the mystery of the Maltese Falcon with the adventure of Total Recall and the suspense of James Bond.

It is the 23rd century. Humankind has spread across the galaxy. The Earth Alliance rules weakly and is desperate for power. Hidden in the shadows are the Lazarus Men: a secret organization ruled with an iron fist by the enigmatic Mr. Shine. His agents are the worst humanity has to offer and they are everywhere.

Gerald LaPlant’s life changes forever the day he accidentally witnesses a murder and discovers an alien artifact in his pocket. Forced to flee, he is chased across the stars by desperate men who want what he has and are willing to stop at nothing to get it.

Coward's Truth: A Novel of the Heart Eternal 

From $4.07 (Fee via Kindle Unlimited)

Welcome to Ghendis Ghadanisban. City of god-kings. City in turmoil.

The god-king is dead! Whispers of murder spread through the city known as the Heart Eternal. Civil war looms as neighboring kingdoms threaten to sweep in and steal the crown. As chaos reigns, a new and terrible factor arises. The god-king's death allows Razazel, an ancient evil from the dawn of time, to return and resume its quest to dominate all life.

The only way to save the jeweled city of the desert is for a small group of reluctant heroes to escort a young boy filled with the dying god's essence to the ancient mountain of Rhorremere so the god-king can be reborn. Meanwhile, far off in the mountains, a squad of stranded space marines sells their services in the hopes of being rescued. They, too, are pulled into the fray as fate and destiny collide.

About the Author
Christian W. Freed was born in Buffalo, N.Y., more years ago than he would like to remember. He has published more than two dozen military fantasy and science fiction novels, as well as memoirs from his time in Iraq and Afghanistan, a children's book, and a pair of how-to books focused on indie authors and the decision-making process for writing a book and what happens after it is published. 

His first published book, Hammers in the Wind, has been the #1 free Kindle book four times, and he holds a fancy certificate from the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest. Okay, so it was for 4th place in one quarter, but it's still recognition from the largest fiction writing contest in the world. And no, he's not a scientologist. 

Passionate about history, he combines his knowledge of the past with modern military tactics to create an engaging, quasi-realistic world for the readers. He graduated from Campbell University with a degree in history and a Master of Arts degree in Digital Communications from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 

He currently lives outside of Raleigh, N.C., and devotes his time to writing, his family, and their two Bernese Mountain Dogs. If you drive by, you might just find him on the porch with a cigar in one hand and a pen in the other. You can find out more about his work at and by following him via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Amazon, and Goodreads.
