About The Book

PROOF-McKenzie3Obliteration-Cover6x9_BW_230-page-0Title: Obliteration (McKenzie Files Book 3)
Author: Barry K. Nelson
Genre: Science-Fiction
The three reprogrammed Brelac Reploids forming the special team Silencers still faithfully serve the United Protectorate under the watchful monitoring of the Central Intelligence Division. Stationed on Maseklos Prime, Colin McKenzie, Diane Christy, and Kelly Lytton are called to a hostage scene and end up with clues that lead to the elusive Dr. Arthur Trevors. Although initially a traitor who worked undercover with the Brelac, Trevors was in large part responsible for the capture and reprogramming of Colin, Diane, and Kelly so they could serve their current function as weapons for the Protectorate. The war with the Brelac is not going well, and the Silencers are given an advanced warp-drive ship and sent beyond their home quadrant, Poseidon, to the last known coordinates of a missing ship. Their mission is to locate the missing ship, part of an original task force of five ships sent out to find other human colonies and enlist their help with the war against the Brelac. As soon as Colin and his team leave the quadrant, they run into trouble, and things go downhill from there. They find themselves in the midst of a war between local factions on a planet far from home and feel obliged to aid the human faction against a clearly superior force that seems to have help from a monster who leaves a wake of death and destruction wherever it goes. The more they find out, the weirder things get, and they end up stranded with no way home, much less any hope of completing their original mission to find the lost task force ship. This new enemy they face seems invincible, and they wonder if they’ll survive as everything and everyone around them is destroyed. Maybe this time not even their Reploid powers will save them. But what other hope does humanity have?

The prequel novel to Betrayal’s Dust
Setting: Michigan; San Diego, CA; Mexico
MAIN CHARACTERS
Cyndarella (Cyn) Worthy, 32, owner of advertising agency, Peachtree Productions and dating auditor, Thad Mitchell, who’s divorced, with one young daughter. Daughter of Willa and Vernon Worthy and brother to Pete Worthy.  Had a relationship with Chaldean immigrant Bashar Bazzi from her teens to her early twenties, but then Bashar went to Iraq and she never heard from him again. As Bashar’s family disliked her for being Black, Cyn assumed Bashar had dumped her and made an arranged marriage within his own community.
Tavie (Octavia) Slade, teacher, single.  Currently dating school principal, Mack (Mackenzie) Dooley. Tavie has had a checkered love-life, including a broken engagement to New Orleans Saints star, Tyrone Sutton, who cheated with a call girl. Mack’s mother, Mrs. Dooley, disapproves of Tavie, as she thinks Tavie is not classy enough for her son and continually tries to set him up with other women.
Denise (Dee) Lincoln, creative director at Peachtree Productions.  Married to Sean, one daughter, Marla (3). Denise isn’t keen to have another child just yet, though Sean wants to.  Anyway, she is having trouble conceiving.
Vette (Corvette) Vern, the only White member of the group, she’s currently single but in a relationship with Louis Burns, who is twelve years her senior and has grown-up kids of his own. She owns a court reporting business. She has a troubled relationship with her mother, Tara, a surgical nurse, and was only reunited recently with her estranged father. Vette is inclined to gossip, which can get her into trouble.
The ladies have been the best of friends since junior high, and meet regularly to share the tears and triumphs, the playfulness and passion, and the ups and downs of their relationships with their men.
When the story opens, Cyndarella’s man, Thad, is away on business in Singapore. Cyn hears from Vette that her ex, Bashar Bazzi, is back in town.  In 1991, Bashar went to Baghdad and though they had been living together, Cyn never heard from him again.  She is thrown by this latest news, but when Thad returns from his trip and proposes marriage to her, she accepts.  At their engagement party on St. Valentine’s Day, Thad behaves possessively about Cyn, which sows a small seed of doubt in Cyn’s mind.
Tavie’s relationship with Mack has been going well, she feels.  Though she knows Mack has cheated on her, she’s forgiven him and thinks that they’ve worked through their issues.  Recently, they enjoyed a romantic mini-break in Toronto.  Both were supposed to be attending an education conference, but Tavie is unable to go as she’s still apparently suffering from a stomach ‘flu bug that’s been making the rounds.  Mack goes to the conference on his own, and Tavie makes an appointment with her doctor.  To her amazement, she discovers she’s pregnant; she’s been taking the herb St. John’s Wort for her anxiety and it has canceled out the efficacy of the contraceptive pill.  She decides to travel to the conference to surprise Mack with the news about the baby—but there’s a surprise waiting for her: she sees Mack canoodling with Geneva, a Jamaican fellow teacher, and then they retire to Mack’s room.  Distraught, Tavie has a miscarriage, and holes up at Cyn’s place.
Knowing that if she and Louis ever make a commitment he won’t want a family, Vette makes the decision to be a foster parent and starts the process rolling.  In the meantime, she has discovered through her court work what really happened to Bashar when he went to Iraq and disappeared in 1991.  She has a dossier which she knows she must show Cyn.  But first she has to deal with Denise’s wrath.  Denise is furious with Vette for revealing that Bashar is back, as she is concerned the news might lead Cyn to break off her engagement with Thad.  However, when she hears about the dossier, Denise has to agree that Cyn needs to know the truth.
Vette gives Cyn the dossier, which makes appalling reading.  Cyn discovers that Bashar was imprisoned and tortured for four years by the Iraqis.  Because he was born in Jordan and wasn’t a naturalized American citizen, there was nothing that the US government could do to get him released.  When he did finally leave prison, he spent time in an English psychiatric hospital being treated for post-traumatic stress, depression and anxiety; he still has a therapist on call for when he suffers recurrences.  Sickened, Cyn realizes she must contact Bashar and see him.  She approaches his cousin, Wiyad, who offers to act as go-between and arrange a meeting.
When Cyn and Bashar meet again, it’s clear that the chemistry is still there between them.  Bashar has never known why he was imprisoned. Cyn tells Bashar of the agony she has suffered in the intervening years, and Bashar grasps that his family prevented him from seeing her again when he was released, tricking him into thinking that she no longer cared.  However, Cyn assures him that had she known he was incarcerated, she would have waited for him.  But realizing that Bashar’s family will never accept her, Cyn decides to press on with her wedding to Thad, urged on by her mother.  However, she can’t resist contacting Bashar again once more, and accepts his invitation to have dinner when he’s next in Detroit.  By now, Bashar knows that he wants Cyn back and, without her knowing, visits her parents.  But when she finds this out, Cyn reassures them that her marriage to Thad is still on.
Tavie has told Mack that she knows about Geneva, revealed the loss of her pregnancy and has moved out of their shared home.  She’s also been summoned by Mrs. Dooley to visit her.  Tavie is aghast when Mrs. Dooley says she wants to help Tavie reconcile with her son.  She accuses Tavie of having sat back and been complacent while she was with Mack, which Tavie can’t deny.
Thad breaks it to Cyn that he doesn’t want to have kids straight away after they get married, but wishes to wait a couple of years because he wants Cyn all to himself.  Cyn is devastated as he knows she wants to get pregnant as soon as possible, and she wonders why he has waited until now to tell her the truth.  She goes to have dinner with Bashar.  They talk frankly about what happened, Cyn revealing how hurt she was by his silence and his family’s attitude to her; she came to the conclusion that he’d gone to Baghdad to make an arranged marriage in his own community.  They make love, but afterwards Cyn decides she must go back to Thad as Bashar’s family will never accept her.  Denise persuades her to come clean with Thad about her night of love with Bashar.  A furious argument ensues, and she calls off the wedding, though Thad tries to persuade her not to leave him.
Cyn goes to an advertising conference in Mexico, using it as a welcome chance to have a break and clear her head.  She weighs up her options and decides that Thad’s too possessive; Bashar is the one she loves.
Bashar has come to the conclusion that he has to reconcile with his family, so he reaches out to his mother.  He lets her know that he loves Cyndarella and is determined to be with her. Mouna carries a guilty secret: she colluded with her husband to have Bashar temporarily held in Iraqi because of family disapproval about his relationship with Cyndarella.  However, Saddam Hussein’s regime intervened and what was intended to be a short, sharp shock became a tragedy.  She does not tell Bashar this, but knows she has to facilitate a reconciliation for Bashar with the rest of the family, and also persuade them to accept Cyndarella.
On her way home from Mexico, Cyn is forced to stop over in San Diego, where Bashar now lives, because of bad weather, and she contacts him.  He comes to the airport and proposes.  He’s already asked her father’s permission.  Overwhelmed and ecstatic, Cyn accepts, and the wedding will go ahead on the Labor Day weekend—when she was meant to be marrying Thad.
Corvette has got the permission she needs to foster, and is takes in two children, Carly, who’s 4, and her brother, Brent, who’s 3.
Denise discovers she has fibroids, which have been preventing her from getting pregnant.  She will get them removed and is told she should be able to get pregnant three months after the procedure is done.
Cyn and Bashar marry quietly in a traditional Catholic service, and then, a week later, renew their vows at Cyn’s church and hold a joyous reception.  Cyn has discovered she’s expecting a baby, and eight months later gives birth to a daughter, Nadia.
Tavie is still being pursued by Mack and ends up sleeping with him.  He confesses he’s finished with Geneva.  But she’s now dating Orville, a Jamaican narcotics agent, and decides to stay with him.  Only she’s in for another shock: she arrives unannounced at Orville’s house and secretly witnesses him watching a sex tape that she and he made with Geneva!  It turns out that Orville and Geneva were married.  Tavie accepts Orville’s explanation, but she vows will have her revenge on Geneva…

Excerpt

"You know that normal is only a fairy tale, right?" he asked.
Zelle inched closer to him. Her willowy form barely reached his shoulder. Her hands were delicate, shoulders slim, her neck long and slender. Every part of her looked like a fragile doll. Except the presence that wafted off of her. The confidence she exuded combated that appearance. Every inch of her exuded sensuality.
Her hand snaked out and splayed against his chest. "You won't hurt me."
"No, I won't." From the glow of her purple eyes, he knew there was a reason she stayed in her tower. Power was the only word he could think of. Power and magick.
He ran a shaky hand through her long soft tresses and pushed the hair over her shoulder revealing more of her throat. Her perfectly full, peachy lips waited for him, just inches away. His erection stirred at the thought of kissing her again.
She stepped into him, pressing against his body. Her supple breasts smashed into his torso and her hips found purchase between his own. The contact was like a lantern switching on inside him. Every part of him woke up and paid attention.
"Kiss me again."
He should be chivalrous and do the right thing. Leave the sweet creature be, and not poison her with his anger and pain. But the pounding in his ribcage, and the feelings she aroused in him, were like no other. Never before had he wanted to be with a woman so badly. And never before had one held so much sway over his person.
He wondered for a moment if she had bewitched him, before pressing his lips to hers and tasting her sweet fragrance. He lifted her from the ground, pinning her against the wall with his knees between her thighs. Her soft frame molded into his as she tangled her fingers in his hair. Their tongues swirled together in a soft dance of desire and he fought to keep from ripping her dress from her.
His body responded of its own accord, his need growing with each passing moment. She reached down to the hem of his tunic and lifted it, running her fingers underneath. He'd never let someone touch his scars before. Never even let people see them before besides his family. The women he'd been with, he'd forced to face the wall till he was done.
The desire to take Zelle down to her plush bed and make love to her flooded him. He slowed his kisses, his brain screaming that this was wrong. He didn't deserve this. She pushed her hands higher, raising his tunic to his shoulder. She traced a scar with her mouth, kissing his skin.
Flint swallowed a lump in his throat and moaned. Her fingers twined in the dark curls of his chest hair. Moving over to his nipple, she flicked out her tongue and licked around it. He slammed his hands into the wall on either side of her, and pulled away, trying to control himself. She slid down a couple of inches and worked her way across his chest with her mouth and fingers, bringing him torturous pleasure.
He had no doubt she knew what she was doing, but the thought that she had done this before wasn't something he could comprehend. She'd said he was the first who had ever gotten into her tower before. Had that been a lie? Pulling away from her was the hardest thing he'd ever done.
"What is it?" She looked up at him.
"Nothing."
"Did I do something to upset you?"
"No. You're wonderful. I just…" He swallowed hard. This wasn't good. He'd known her less than a week and already he had feelings for her. Feelings he hadn't planned on. Feelings he didn't know what to do about.
