The Z-Tech Chronicles: Book Six

Ryan Southwick

The Resistance must risk everything and face the most powerful military organization in the world to save the very people who vilify them: humanity itself.

Cappa’s loss has affected everyone, though none more than Charlie Z, whose grief is all-consuming. Still, Anne Perrin, Zima, Tabby, Mark, Dela, and the rest of the Resistance carry on, trying to figure out their place in a world inexorably heading for nuclear war.

The mysterious Entity is locked in the farthest corner of their underground headquarters. As the new leader of the Resistance, Anne must decide whether it’s friend or foe, but the clock is ticking. Zima’s creator, Alvin Orwing, suffered a crippling loss at the spaceship’s destruction, and he’ll stop at nothing to reclaim what’s his — even if that means an unholy alliance with the alien.

Orwing launches a devastating assault leaves the Resistance in mourning, and the key to the aliens’ plans in Alvin’s hands.

With their own country against them, Anne and the rest of the former Z-Tech crew must figure out a way to assault an impregnable base on the other side of the world before Orwing finishes what the
Entity began: humanity’s utter destruction.

About The Author

Ryan Southwick

Ryan Southwick

Ryan Southwick decided to dabble at writing late in life, and quickly became obsessed with the craft. He grew up in Pennsylvania and moved to a farming town on California’s central coast during elementary school, but it was in junior high school where he had his first taste of storytelling with a small role playing group and couldn’t get enough.

In addition to half a lifetime in the software development industry, making everything from 3-D games to mission-critical business applications to help cure cancer, he was also a Radiation Therapist for many years. His technical experience, medical skills, and lifelong fascination for science fiction became the ingredients for his book series, "The Z-Tech Chronicles", which combines elements of each into a fantastic contemporary tale of super-science, fantasy, and adventure, based in his Bay Area stomping grounds. Ryan’s related short story “Once Upon a Nightwalker” was published in the Corporate Catharsis anthology, available from Paper Angel Press.
