New Persia: A Hostile Planet
Human colonists have settled far away from Earth. Their new planet is hostile to human life and spawns continent-spanning storms of fire and destruction. The technology necessary to travel between the stars has been lost, leaving the population with the weapons and tools of the 20th century.
The New Persians who cling to life in the desert value obedience and conformity. The fallen scion Nasrin Avesta and the rebel Suri Pahlavi reject the future their families chose for them and create their own.
New Persia in A World at War
Captain Basir Turani of the Prince’s Own Armored Regiment must use all his intellect and cunning to prevail against the elements, the enemy, and traitors in his midst. His tools of battle are throwbacks to an ancient age before his ancestors came to this world from far-off Earth. With tanks and jet planes, the New Persians fight their old foe, Azania.
The coming storm will change them all.
