StormDragon Trailer


A gripping novel to keep you reading through the night!

A mysterious machine, built over a century ago by the enigmatic scientist Nikola Tesla, lies hidden in an ancient building near Pikes Peak. Its monstrous counterpart occupies the vast interior of a hollowed-out mountain in Alaska.

Kate McCullough, investigative reporter for a Colorado Springs television station, discovers the terrifying link between the two machines —and her own family.

During a harrowing undercover operation inside the dark mountain, she seizes evidence incriminating the top echelons of a major corporation and the U.S. government.

Pursued by a massive conspiracy with all the resources of the "shadow" government, Kate must use all of her guile and wits just to stay alive. How can she hope to stop a fiercely guarded juggernaut that can burn the soul from every living being on the planet?

Her efforts to expose the conspirators will soon unleash a staggering electronic firestorm, and the fate of mankind hangs in the balance.

The second edition of Stormdragon will soon be released along with a new horror novel by Lloyd Ritchey.
