Soon after, Jim, Liz and Kurt's lives are set to crash with a galactic war that threatens the very existence of the human race.

Praise for The Crimson Deathbringer:
The Crimson Deathbringer is a mix of funny and clever dialogues, action and adventure, with scenes that made me chuckle, bite my nails, and shed a tear or two. All while it kept me at the edge of my seat, trying to guess what would happen next. And no, most times I guessed wrong.
Jina Bazzar, the author of Heir of Ashes
The Crimson Deathbringer is the first novel from Sean Robins--and a great debut it is. It's chockablock full of action. You have dramatic alien-versus-human-versus alien encounters, exciting space battles, an insane race to save the world, some warm-hearted romance, and a lot of waggish humor (reminiscent of Douglas Adams). If you can get this granite face to break a smile, you've accomplished something major and Sean has done just that--by infusing campy fun at the right times, in the right places.
