Have You Heard The Call?


Fight, or Die

There shouldn't be a reason why you haven't, especially as The IX is now available as an audiobook.
Narrated by British Actor Rob Goll, you'll be able to immerse yourselves in the critically acclaimed sci-fi action adventure that is, The IX.


Remember some of the editorial reviews for The IX?

Weston deftly weaves the horrors of the Horde stealing human life-essences, with the beauty of his prose and imagery. Action-packed and highly recommended.
Amazing Stories

The IX has taken me back to the books I enjoyed in my youth (Jerry Pournelle's King David's Spaceship or Gordon Dickson's Hour of the Horde) It flows wonderfully. There's constant motion, & Weston takes the story in unexpected directions that are intriguing & fun.
Black Gate

Weston knows how to keep the reader on the edge of the seat without feeling as though the mission will never end. This is a complex combination of history, imagination & science fiction magic as is available today.
Grady Harp: Hall of Fame/Top 100 /Vine Reviewer

When it comes to science fiction, I want a book that captures me from page one and never gives me a reason to want to escape. I want a book that forces me to stay up until 3 a.m., because there is no point at which it is ideal to put it down. I want a book whose characters and plots are complex and intelligent, but elegantly crafted with the minimum of distraction. The IX delivers.
Fanboy Comics

A brilliant & amazing synthesis of military, horror and far-future science fiction.
Nebula Award Winner Michael A. Armstrong

The author's knowledge of military history & his speculations about what might have happened to the legendary Ninth Roman Legion have led to an amazing trip through time & space to a world where things are not ever as straight-forward as they seem. Blending in believable science & classic elements of old Westerns, Weston has created a truly delightful story.
This Dark Matter

If you come back from watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens and find yourself pining for a galaxy far, far away with similar elements, I highly recommend The IX.
Epicstream

The IX is the most inventive science fiction novel I have read since "Stranger in a Strange Land". That's saying a lot. The plot is highly complicated, and yet so clearly and gracefully written that it is easy to follow. The ending is wildly inventive and too brilliant to give away. Suffice it to say I ended the book with tears in my eyes.

Why don’t YOU get a taste for The IX?
It’ll put you in the right frame of mind to enjoy the action-packed sequel
Exordium of Tears


A remarkable follow-up to the continuing battle that will decide the fate of the universe, and the precursor for Prelude to Sorrow.

This year’s stunning conclusion to an epic that really does emphasize,
Death is only the beginning of the adventure.
