About the author:
T.R. Maxus lives in Denver with his wife and three cats. When not writing he spends time traveling, reading, playing guitar and piano, enjoying wine, spending time with amazing friends, and playing sand volleyball. In 2016 Maxus finished the sequel to Aenamus: Silent Blood entitled "Aenamus: Executive Reckoning". He is currently working on his third novel.
"Writing these two books provided me with an ideal outlet for venting my frustrations through one of the most satisfying and addictive mediums I've ever known: fiction writing. There have always been bad people in society. But as technology continues to shrink our world, their reach and influence spreads faster and farther than ever before. And as modern culture becomes more and more politically correct, apathetic, and aloof, it's more important than ever for new voices to shout through the fog - to make a little noise. Hopefully I've accomplished that with Aenamus.
There is an amazing release and satisfaction that comes from putting ideas on paper and sharing them with the world. If readers get half as much enjoyment out of the Aenamus series as I did writing it, I'll consider the project a glowing success!"
Aenamus: Silent Blood
Aenamus: Silent Blood, Book I, centers on a dedicated group of U.S. citizens known as The Aenamaia. The group's leader, Gray, has spent the last decade carefully assembling his team and quietly preparing to take action against some of the worst high-profile offenders. Each member shares a similar conviction about the apathetic and corrupt state of the world. Their incredulity and frustration regarding the rampant injustices of the parasitic, corrupt public figures whose transgressions fuel so many of society's problems has driven them to take bold and unprecedented action. Their objective: to eliminate the worst, most toxic people in society.
The Aenamaia act as self-appointed judges, jurors and executioners - doing what the law can't or won't and what society refuses to demand. The men and women responsible for carrying out the liquidations, known within The Aenamaia as Augurs, set about eliminating their targets as quickly and quietly as possible. No torture. No retribution. No ransom or demands. Just take out the garbage and don't get caught - or killed.
Unbeknownst to The Aenamaia, another group is also on the hunt, but with a far more nefarious, vicious and bloody mission. Their objective is to extract information by any means necessary, then brutally - and sometimes theatrically - eliminate the source. But why? What is their agenda? What do the victims have in common?
Enter Department of Homeland Security Agent Roger Tarte. Years of paper shuffling and government bureaucracy have left him bored, anxious and hungry for a meaningful and worthwhile challenge. When a chance encounter with the head of the FBI's Counter Terrorism Division lands him on the trail of the perpetrators, Tarte leaps at the opportunity - never considering where he might land. Before he knows it, Agent Tarte is negotiating for two high-profile hostages, handling dangerous explosives, and tracking a rogue military cargo plane headed for the Middle East - all the while trying to capture The Aenamaia. With each step he takes, Tarte becomes more and more unsure of what is really going on and who he can trust. One thing is certain, though, it will take all of Tarte's skills and wit just to keep up...and stay alive.
Aenamus is an edgy, provocative story about good people crossing a line that has never been crossed. Enigmatic and intriguing characters engage and challenge readers, while daring them to redefine what is right and wrong - and where they stand.
Cleverly laced with action, philosophy, wit and sarcasm, Aenamus takes the reader on a stimulating emotional ride through a volatile moral landscape - all the while questioning the very essence of our humanity.
And Book I is only the beginning...
"A gripping story of bloody vengeance that is at times almost unbearably tense, Aenamus asks the fundamental question: how far would any one of us go to rid the world of evil? This is not just your ordinary action-packed adventure - it is an incredibly intelligent and timely novel that takes on the decay and corruption of the power elite. It's a compelling, thought-provoking thriller told at a breathtaking pace. " ~ Nancy Hitchins, Denver
