Eamon Tauk was literally born into the Space Corps. They spent two decades forging him into a Marine. Training him to be a killer. Twisting him into a fanatic. It was their efforts to turn him into a hero that left him questioning every sacred tenet the Citadel drilled into him, however.
After being deployed to secure the lost colony of Narman’s Pyke, the young cadet tries to repress his crisis of faith long enough to complete his mission. Then he crash-lands on Kanaris, a miserably wet planet where human beings are NOT at the top of the food chain.
When his battalion is denied rescue and forced to march hundreds of kilometers through deadly rainforest for no other reason than to save the reputation of a highborn coward, Tauk begins to understand the dynamics that have the Kyperion League teetering on the brink of civil war.
And in an environment so hostile that even the trees seem hellbent on killing them, he discovers that the deadliest threats facing the Marines on Kanaris are not the alien creatures preying upon them.
It is the people who led them there.
Reading like a cross between the movies “Aliens” and “Platoon,” Narman’s Pyke is the opening salvo of the new epic sci-fi space opera from the author of the Tequila Vikings series, J.E. Park.

There was an extraterrestrial menace on Kanaris with the potential to wipe mankind from the face of the galaxy, yet Eamon Tauk could not have cared less about it. He had his crosshairs on a human, the woman responsible for murdering his beloved. Beneath the specter of alien annihilation, all Tauk really wanted was to get his hands around the throat of Deena Vulk.
He knew getting to Vulk would not be easy. Her alien allies possessed weaponry that made his look paleolithic in comparison. The Narmans she fought alongside were mostly Marine deserters with an intimate knowledge of the League’s weaknesses. They were also frighteningly familiar with the Kanarisian landscape and knew how to use the terrors lurking within it to their advantage.
The deadliest item in the Narman arsenal, though, was not their weaponry. It was a cause with which the conscripts under Tauk’s command could sympathize.
Of every menace converging to deny Tauk his vengeance, the greatest threat to his objective, not to mention his life, could be the realization that in this war, Eamon Tauk may not have been fighting for the good guys.

Kanaris is a hot, wet planet teeming with inhospitable jungles where human beings are not at the top of the food chain. To survive the long trek to the lost colony of Narman’s Pyke, PFC Mazada Duum knew he had to keep up with the battalion, where the Marines had strength in numbers. And under no circumstances should he ever leave the trail and enter the rainforest.
When one of Kanaris’s many calamities forces the Marines off the path and spreads them out across a vast swath of alien bush, every leatherneck will spend the night facing a primitive terror that even their cruelest nightmares could not conjure up. Mazada Duum’s small squad, on the other hand, will face the motherlode.
For it was they who stumbled across The Nest.
