Having survived a fight with the most potent mind reader in the world, Cougar Reed continues his mission of building a force to turn the tide of the war between The Resistance and The Alliance. But even as the young Reed prepares to become a factor in the war, the Resistance (a union of European and Asian countries focused on world conquest) presses their advantage. Cities burn as Reed and the Alliance try to rally their forces. As the battle rages another Timere is awakened into the world. Half a world away the Mistress of Death arrives; Black Widow. But it is not just the Timere that wants Reed's death. He also must deal with Lions Pride while preparing for the faceoff against the head Timere; Taipan.
While the war between the Alliance (comprised of expatriated soldiers from the United States, England, France, and Australia) and the Resistance (a union of European and Asian countries focused on world conquest) rages, the genetically modified species wage their own battles. Through the bloodshed, one antihero has risen to power; Cougar Reed. Now 19 years old, Cougar is married and his young wife is with a child. Joining Cougar's ever-growing list of enemies is Taipan; the most powerful Timere ever created. Cougar must maintain his focus on the war, while at the same time dealing with the extremely lethal enemies that have aligned against him. As the conflict escalates the price of the war continues to grow. Casualties pile up and dreams are fulfilled while others die a painful death. Now a new Timere has awakened into the world; the Mistress of Death... Black Widow. The gears of war will not cease to allow the young Reed time to catch his breath. His old nemesis is still alive and the Pride is more lethal than before.
About the author
The world of Cougar Reed had been forming and growing since Jim Mohr was a small boy in Central Wisconsin. Even through his time in the military and the Persian Gulf War the fictional world centered around the Wisconsin-Illinois base had been refining. Over 25 years later his wife, Jennifer, urged him to put pen to paper. The three-book series and the three-book Admiral series which follows were created. Now, in east-central Illinois, Jim spends his time writing, practicing his lumberjack skills, and caring for the 3 cats, and a dog who share the couples' home.
