Five hundred years in the future, monitors alert Guardian Force to an intruder entering the solar system. Guardian Force intercepts and discovers a mystery- an ungainly sub-light interstellar probe of unknown origin. Chemical analysis detects traces of human blood on the probe.
Guardian Force initiates a risky long-range reconnaissance. Captain Kellon and his crew track the probe's journey back to its source over eighty light-years of unexplored space. What Guardian Force encounters in that distant star system forever alters mankind's knowledge of the past and its future. If humanity is to prosper, it must first survive.
Guardian Force is the first volume in an exciting science fiction series combining both military and high adventure themes. Watch for the sequels, Earth Guardian, Guardian Probe, Guardian Strike, and Guardian Thunder.
Two diverse branches of humanity- once separated by light years and millenniums- are reunited through a twist of fate. Confronted with a compelling common need for survival, multiple human worlds come together to oppose the devastating aggression of an expanding alien empire: the Kreel. As the Kreel threaten to engulf Earth, its various governments realize just how far behind the power-curve they really are. Lacking super-luminal technology, and woefully ignorant of their newfound allies from distant stars, Earth's people are scrambling like backwater cousins to catch-up as humanity is immersed in an interstellar conflict. Earth's tenuous hope for survival rests squarely on the overextended military capability of distant Glas Dinnein's Guardian Force. Set in the year 2514, Earth Guardian is the second volume of a new SF series, pure science fiction combining the genres of military and high adventure. The first volume is Guardian Force. The sequels are Guardian Probe, Guardian Strike, and Guardian Thunder.
By fate and circumstance, five battle weary Guardian Cruisers found themselves far from home and positioned to oppose the main thrust of a Kreel invasion. Their new orders were to make a stand. While waiting for promised resupply, and the vague assurance of whatsoever limited additional Guardian Cruisers HQ might be able to send, the desperate defenders began seeking an elusive tactical edge that might permit them to survive the battle. As the five Cruisers were bracing for battle, nearly one-hundred light years distant, a single Guardian Cruiser on deep reconnaissance was executing its final two acts. Having come under attack by an elite Kreel force, outnumbered and heavily damaged, the Cruiser's single surviving crew was the ship's AI. The AI destroyed its remaining attackers and itself in one final defiant act. Moments before, the AI sent home a Cobalt Blue encrypted message detailing its pending self-destruction. Within the Cobalt Blue message was a mystery that, once solved, would reshape Guardian Force and draw it deep within the Kreel Empire on a covert intelligence mission. What could possibly go wrong?
Within the flowing eddy currents of creation, among billions of this universe’s bright galaxies, there is one called by some the Milky Way. Spanning more than one-hundred-thousand light years, this galaxy contains more than two-hundred-billion star systems. The Kreel Empire has overwhelmed more than fifty of these star systems and ignited a bitter conflict with humanity. The smoldering inter-species tensions are a tinderbox that threatens to flare up and engulf even more star systems. As the Kreel and humanity engage in deadly skirmishes, neither is aware they are being observed by advanced species — together known as the Elders. Abiding peacefully within the galaxy and observing the actions of younger evolving species, they are debating what appropriate action they must take and which species — if either — warrants survival. The ongoing conflicts have also drawn the attention of another. An ancient evil from beyond the Milky Way has been drawn forth by the heady energy of interstellar war and death. Its malign influence is beginning to permeate the inter-species clash. Even as Guardian Force makes ready for combat on a scale never before witnessed by humanity, the balance of power is about to change forever….
Within a spiral galaxy an anomaly emerged. By brute conquest, a corporeal oviparous species overwhelms more than forty solar systems, harshly suppressing hapless non-star faring indigenous species. When the expanding sphere of domination seeks to engulf eleven human occupied worlds, space-faring humanity stands and resists. Oblivious of the watching elder species dwelling within the galaxy, Humanity and the Kreel each wage no quarter asked or given battle, both seeking an elusive but mandatory final decisive military advantage. Outnumbered and at great peril, Guardian Force adopts subterfuge and takes the battle straight into the heart of the Kreel Empire. Responding to the expanding violence, the Elder species begin conversing among themselves, weighing their moral obligation to impartially intercede and render a final judgment. As the survival of the human species teeters on the sharp edge of a fulcrum, the crew of a Guardian prototype then out-of-place in both time and space labor to survive, while the three distinct branches of humanity come together and confront an uncertain future….

The writer has collected a good history of mankind’s development and established science to explain why we act the way we do as a society. I am looking foreword to book number 2 to see the direction the author is going to take us.
Reviewed in the United States on March 15, 2021
Book 2 keeps the character development along with the main story line from the first book. The use of the writers submarine warfare experience has been expressed well to space strategy.

I purchased this book (and all five books in the series) to give as a gift. The person receiving the gift said they were excellent and he'd be keeping the set to read again in the future.

All 5 books have captivated my attention since starting the first one about 2 weeks ago. The story line focuses on human history and projects one possible track for our future. The characters are all strongly developed. A great read.

This was a very satisfying end to the most favorite science fiction series I have ever read in the last 65 years.

The “Guardian” series by D. Arthur Gusner is a reminder to all of us rabid Sci Fi fans,
how much the serial stories are loved and missed. This author’s true to form, science- based story-telling is up there with the likes of Asimov, Bradbury, Heinlein and O.S. Card. One can only wonder how these past to present and future writers have shaped a genre that extends far beyond our own limited realities.
As a scientist, Gusner’s knowledge of the universe is impressive and his stories reflect it. His knowledge of history and his understanding of human nature add dimension to the development of his characters and storyline. Read book 1 and you’re hooked. Then sit back and allow yourself to be entertained and awed by this thought-provoking 5-book series. (Guardian Force, Earth Guardian, Guardian Probe, Guardian Strike and Guardian Thunder)

I found this a great story, and continuation to the series. I was initially a bit reluctant because it is some what dearer than most kindle books. So I originally only purchased the first part. That was more than enough, I was hooked. The day after I finished I bought the next two, a decision I haven't regretted.
The series is full of captivating characters, human, alien and a.i., and suitably bad enemies. There is also a continuing mystery about humanity, and its place in the galaxy. Topped off with rousing space battles. All in all a very addictive mix, one I can thoroughly recommend.

One of the best science fiction series that I have read in years. Thrilling battle scenes and a great mixture of good vs evil.

Captain Picard – The Next Generation
Seemingly, gone and forgotten forever was a golden age, with its tales of glory and the songs of heroes; yet mostly forgotten legends and racial memories stubbornly lingered. Then, as foretold in ages long past, strange happenings began to occur. The veil that had concealed the truth of past ages parted, and long-suppressed truths were revealed. Around the world hope began to resurge, and a deep-seated longing arose in the hearts of many for the coming of a new golden age.
Thus, it is with the telling of this long-forgotten truth that the weaver of stories begins intertwining his tale with unfolding mysteries:

For the first time anywhere D. Arthur Gusner, the author of the Guardian series, has agreed to publish here his exciting research discovery: The Great Pyramid - an Equation in Stone, 4,500-Year-Old Royal Cubit Mystery Solved. D. Arthur Gusner has solved the intellectual puzzle, which has baffled scholars for millenniums. The startling fruits of D. Arthur Gusner's decades of independent inquiry, research, and unanticipated discovery illuminates an underlying mystery about our distant past.
First discovering the veiled key, D Arthur Gusner next unlocked the challenging underlying complex design of the Great Pyramid. He plainly demonstrates the master builders based their design on an artfully selected equation founded upon their working knowledge of hard science, general physics, and precise geodetic measurements, thereby establishing the Pyramid is an enduring scientific database constructed from cut stone. Current academic presumptions uniformly reject any possibility the pyramid builders possessed such scientific knowledge or technical capability! His brilliant discoveries dramatically capsize long-held, but erroneous scholarly presumptions.
By agreeing to publish his remarkable discoveries here on Galaxy Quest Books, D. Arthur Gusner anticipates making his original research widely available to a global audience, thereby encouraging others in peeling back additional layers of our ancient past and reveal ever more of humanity's true history upon our incredible resilient Earth.
