* * Dominant Species Volume Four - Bio Diversity *coming 4th quarter 2013!** The adventure continues in 2013 with the shocking fourth volume in the *Dominant Species Series, Bio Diversity.* * Spanning a millennium, the *Dominant Species Series* is a panoramic story of human and alien species locked in mortal conflict. Against this backdrop of deadly biological rivalry, humankind will fight an inner battle whose outcome is as final--and as brutal--as natural selection itself. Volume Three - Acquired Traits** It is the year 3014. A pivotal battle looms. Branded as murderers and forced into hiding in the jungle planet's deepest recesses, pilot John Soledad, biologist Rachel Sanders, and medic Donna Applegate survive on their wits, frequent field remedies applied by Donna, and late-night raids on the colony's storage warehouses for needed supplies. While the trio struggles to survive, another threat--one more virulent than the jungle's life forms--threatens the very survival of the new colony. Rachel's venom-induced visions are telling her something--revealing the terrible nature of the danger--and awakening memories of things and events ancient, dark and monstrous. * Review The Dominant Species Series *is at once shocking, horrifying, and completely engrossing. Coy has created an exquisite nightmare; the images remain long after the story is finished.  *--- Gillian Pemberton, Tattooed Book Review* To find not only a book but a series of books that not only leaps off the page but also affects my dreams, and has me telling every bookworm I know about it is rare. David Coy has created a fantastic universe and a story you just cannot put down.  *--- Cassandra H., Senior Reviewer, You Gotta Read Reviews *From the Author There is strong language in the story because humans under stress often use such language. There is no puppy love or adolescent motifs of intimacy in the story. Instead there are very many mature, psycho sexual themes that run through all three books. Some are represented symbolically, others described explicitly. There is violence. The story is not PG-13. I heard somewhere that when you set out to write a story that you should write the one you would most like to read yourself. After a lifelong diet of scary science fiction *anything*, and endless discussions about what could be with *anybody*, I think I have done just that. What I didn't plan on was that there would be so much story I'd love to read, to write.
