Books By M.R. Forbes
Already trapped in the worst day of his life and desperate for a way out, he decides to play along. Except there is no joke. The starship is real. And Ben’s life is going to change in ways he never dreamed possible.
All he has to do is sign the contract.
Joined by his streetwise best friend and a bizarre tenant with an unseverable lease, he’ll soon discover that the universe is more volatile, treacherous, and awesome than he ever imagined.
And the only thing harder than owning a starship is staying alive.
If you like found starships, unlikely heroes and intergalactic mayhem, you’ll love Starship For Sale, the latest sci-fi adventure from bestselling author M.R. Forbes.
The race to find the most valuable resource in the galaxy is on.
No, it isn’t unobtainium, vibranium, adamantium, or eternium. And it isn’t a zouchem crystal, either (though that WOULD be a nice pickup).
If Ben wants to prevent Duke Sedaya from gaining an iron grip on the Hegemony, his only hope lies in locating the missing Prince Hiro. Of course, it won’t be easy. And even if Ben can find him…
It may already be too late.
In the year 2050, Earth makes first contact. By 2052, the war is over. We lose.
As a development platform for desperately needed advanced technology, the experimental starship Foresight is the greatest hope humankind has to flee the alien hordes. For test pilot Captain Nicholas Shepherd, the success of the program is even more personal. Successful completion means delivering his wife and son safely off-world and leaving the war behind for good. But when Foresight suffers a critical malfunction during her final scheduled flight, what should have been a minor setback becomes a major fight for survival.
With his family caught in the crossfire, Nicholas realizes that the flawed starship offers the best chance to escape. It isn’t long before even the frantic evacuation turns sideways, and he discovers that not only is the war harder to get away from than he thought, but Foresight is more than just a prototype.
Much, much more.
Joined by an unintended crew of survivors, Nicholas is about to embark on an impossible mission that will take them far beyond the outer reaches of space. If he fails, humankind won’t just be lost.
We’ll be completely erased.
After narrowly escaping destruction, Nicholas and his crew find themselves flung far across the universe with no way home. When a distress call from a nearby planet catches their attention, they decide to investigate with the hope the signal is somehow connected to their arrival.
It isn’t long before the truth of Foresight’s mission comes into clearer focus, and Nicholas doesn’t like what he sees. He already knows there’s something disturbing about the circumstances of their escape.
The truth is more unsettling than he could have ever imagined.
A violent war followed. The enemy won.
Some of us escaped...
...most of us didn’t.
On Proxima they flourished - the invasion forgotten.
On Earth we floundered - the horror began.
Their world is advanced, peaceful, and secure.
Our world is broken, savage, and overrun.
A new invasion is coming.
A hunger that has swallowed half the universe.
They don’t care which planet we live on.
They want to end us all.
But where there is life, there is hope.
And where there is hope, there are heroes.
Sheriff. Marine. Pilot.
Engineer. Centurion. Clone.
This time, vengeance will be ours.
Nicholas and his crew escape the frying pan only to find themselves thrust into the fire. Forced to choose between an unsavory alliance and imprisonment, they’re about to be pushed deeper into the crucible with no idea who or what to trust.
The only thing they know for sure is that no one expects them to survive...
Crippled and left for dead, Nicholas and his crew find a glimmer of hope in an unexpected new ally. Down but not out, if they want to finish what they’ve started they’ll need to return to Earth. Only it’s not the Earth they knew and the hardest battle is still to come.
If they can survive long enough to fight in it...

They are coming. Find the Goliath or be destroyed.
The chilling words are the first thing Mitchell hears after an assassin’s bullet nearly ends his life. He tries to ignore them, convinced the voice in his head is a side-effect of his injuries.
The warning is only the beginning. A glimpse into a struggle against an enemy older than time.
An enemy that’s very real and much closer than he ever imagined.
An enemy that will do whatever it takes to keep him from finding the centuries-lost starship and ending not only the fight but their very existence.
Narrowly escaping capture, Mitchell falls into the hands of the Riggers — a ragtag crew of black-ops commandos who patrol the outer reaches of the galaxy. Guided by a captain with a reputation for murder, they’re dangerous, immoral, and possibly insane.
They may also be humanity’s last hope for survival in a war that has raged beyond eternity.
