Some believe it began 700 million years ago, others say it started in 1947 in Roswell, New Mexico. Regardless of its exact origin, the war between the worlds is about to reach its final conclusion: The End of Days. As global allies fall to the wayside and nations start a mad scramble to realign their military structures, only one element in the arsenal of the world can possibly give Earth a fighting chance at survival: The Matchstick Man.

Praise for Overlord

“A unique spin on the Book of Exodus and the defeat of Pharaoh's army…The mix of legends and history has always been an asset to this series, and Golemon's imagination seems to know no bounds. Fans of the TV series Warehouse 13 or the action-adventure novels of Cussler and Rollins will lap this up.” —Booklist on Carpathian

“Explosive…tense, terrifying--and worth the investment.” —Associated Press on Ripper

“A tale worthy of the giants of the genre like Clive Cussler, James Rollins, and Matthew Reilly, Legend is a definite must-read for action and adventure fans. Don't miss it.” —Megalith.com on Legend

“The author…draws the reader in with an intriguing prologue…satisfying adventure.” —Publishers Weekly on Legend

“Golemon can write action sequences with the best of them, and he lands a solid uppercut with this book. The depth of science fiction…is surprising and ingenious.” —SFSignal.com on Legend

“Golemon combines his typical action-adventure fare with more thriller elements this time, and he focuses more on the personal stakes of his characters. …Golemon knows how to make readers turn the pages, and Primeval will only further enhance his reputation.” —Booklist

“Fans of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea will enjoy Golemon's recasting of the Jules Verne novel.” —Publishers Weekly on Leviathan

“Golemon's third novel in the Event Group series proves to be his best yet….a mix of the James Rollins action-heavy adventure, the military gadgetry of Tom Clancy, the pacing of the television series 24, and the conspiracy theories devoured by fans of the radio show Coast to Coast AM.” —Booklist on Ancients

“The Roswell Incident--whether legend, fact, or some combination of both--has inspired countless novels and movies over the years, but David Lynn Golemon's Event peels back the layers of Roswell with refreshing originality. The action is spectacularly cinematic, the characters compelling, and the story is a flat-out adrenaline rush that pits real-world, cutting-edge military technology against a literally out-of-this-world threat. Even better, the Event Group itself is one of the best fictional agencies to arise in the literature of government conspiracies.” —New York Times bestselling authors Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens on the Event Group Thrillers

“Fans of UFO fiction will find this a great read, and fans of military fiction won't be disappointed.” —SFsignal.com on Event

“Imagine mixing in a blender a Tom Clancy novel with the movie Predator and the television series The X-Files....readers who enjoy nonstop action and lots of flying bullets will enjoy Golemon's series.” —Library Journal on the Event Group Thrillers

“Golemon puts his military experience to good use in this promising [series]…evokes some of the early work of Preston and Child.” —Publishers Weekly on the Event Group Thrillers
