Strap yourselves in for a gripping space adventure...
An space opera adventure full of great characters and unexpected plot twists that span several galaxies. If you love Star Trek and Starship Troopers, you simply cannot pass up this series!
An unstoppable alien army is coming.
You discover you have powers you can’t control.
Your next move will either save the earth or destroy the universe…
Every man under Captain Jeff Bowers’ command was killed—on his first mission out. Ever since, he’s been a shell of a man, only taking solo assignments in deep space…
An alien species called the Prox has destroyed one colony after another, and the search is on for something—anything—that can stop them before they reach Earth…
Bowers is spying on the Prox when his ship crashes and he dies…kind of. When he wakes up in his Anchorage apartment he discovers he has a new body—and new powers that could win the war…or end all life as we know it.
A scientific experiment goes horribly wrong. The earth…the galaxy…the universe is destroyed. And there’s only one person to blame…you.
Captain Jeff Bowers has been resurrected by an alien race—leaving him with mysterious powers…powers that could turn the tide of galactic war in the humans’ favor. While testing those powers, a final experiment lands Jeff and his crew in an alternate reality, very much the same as their universe…and very different.
Uncertain who to trust, Jeff discovers that enemies are friends, and old friends turn out to be enemies…and nothing is as it seems.
Jeff must sort out where his loyalties lie, and what side to take in a galactic war between Earth and her rebellious colonies. Most of all, he wants to know what happened to the universe he left behind—if it’s even there at all…
In a parallel reality you gamble everything on an insane search.
Now everyone wants you dead—friends, aliens, even lovers.
And the only weapon you’ve got could wipe out yet another universe…
Refugees in a hostile parallel universe, Captain Jeff Bowers and his crew narrowly escape to neutral space. But Jeff is haunted by a vision that just won’t let him go, and it sends him on a quest he can’t justify or explain.
At the same time, he is obsessed with finding the love of his life—Jo Taylor—who is still alive on this reality string. But when he finds her, will she be different? How different?
Will Jeff betray everyone and everything he has ever known to chase after these mirages? In the end, Jeff is faced with a choice—will he risk ending this universe to save it? Especially if it means killing Jo a second time?
An invincible alien army is closing in on Earth.
Only one broken man has any hope of stopping them.
Power up your weapons, boys—this shit is about to get real.
Crossing the universe in search of a nameless Peruvian shaman, Jeff Bowers finds him…and the ability to control his own mysterious powers.
Only the destruction of the universe stopped the Prox from attacking Earth. Now, here in a new universe, another Earth is staring down the most ruthless alien army imaginable.
Only Jeff knows what’s really going on. Only he has a chance against the Prox. And as the shaman says, “If you want to kill a snake, cut off the head.”
Magic is alive and well in Berkeley, California...
If you love supernatural suspense laced with humor and danger, you’ll love J.R. Mabry’s Berkeley Blackfriars' books. Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Preacher, The Dresden Files, and the Mercy Thompson series will thrill to these new paranormal fantasy adventures!
Fr. Richard Kinney is having a crappy week. He’s not at all sure he’s the best leader for the demon-hunting Berkeley Blackfriars, he suspects he may have a drinking problem, and his boyfriend has just broken up with him. But when a violent demon possesses one of the richest men in the world, Richard doesn’t have time for self-pity.
Leaping into action, Richard and the Blackfriars soon discover that possession is just the tip of the iceberg. The tycoon’s son has hired a lodge of black magicians to carry out a nefarious experiment: Make every avocado in the world disappear. When that works, they ramp it up, eliminating every dog from existence.
Once they learn the terrible reason for the disappearances, Richard and the Blackfriars find themselves in a desperate race against time as the magicians try to eliminate their next target: every child on earth. To save the world’s next generation, they’ll have to put themselves in the line of fire instead.
Fr. Dylan has spent his entire adult life ducking responsibility. As far as he’s concerned, there’s no problem so big that a bong hit or two can’t fix.
But when the Spear of Destiny threatens every living soul and an army of the damned begins to gather on his doorstep, Dylan has to admit he’s met his match.
Then, when the Blackfriars’ prior disappears, all eyes turn to Dylan to lead them. Dylan can either step up or allow unspeakable evil to grind everything innocent and good underfoot…
When Brian discovers Terry has cheated on him he is utterly devastated, and flees to San Francisco to sort through the rubble of his life…
When magicians open the gates of hell, the Blackfriars scramble to stop them from turning the East Bay into a nightmarish wasteland of torture and mayhem…
While everyone is looking the other way, a lone magician ascends through the planes of heaven with one mission in mind: kill God and bring the Kingdom of Heaven down in flames…
Wounded, bickering, and utterly incapable of handing the situation, the Blackfriars call on Brian to put things right. But if he’s not capable of even holding onto a boyfriend, how can he possibly muster the confidence needed to save heaven and earth?
The Berkeley Blackfriars series is some of the best and funniest urban fantasy I've ever read. They're hilarious, irreverent, and profound, and everyone should read them. —Tammi Labrecque
