The Gate - Astral Conspiracy Book One
Publisher: Sterling & Stone
He lost his job. Lost his girl. Now it’s all he can do not to lose his life.
Landon Thorne is a disgraced archaeologist, a laughing stock in his field because of his unconventional beliefs — he’s an ancient astronaut theorist. No one takes him seriously.
Until an alien armada targets Earth.
Now Landon’s in high demand by the U.S. government. And someone far more sinister.
He races his pursuers across two continents to the Gate of the Gods, the one place on the planet that might give humans an advantage over the Astrals. But no one is prepared for what they find.
And not everyone will make it out alive.
