Welcome to the Mirror Empires, where reality is distorted, and war threatens to engulf the world. It is 1898, and soldiers armed with the latest weapons clash with the unstoppable power of the Sky Lords and their aerial armadas in new and uncharted realms. Jack never expected to spend his 19th birthday crashing a stolen flying machine into the middle of a war. But when he saw soldiers with bolt-action rifles up against an advanced species, he knew he’d found something incredible. As they storm Khartoum’s fortified city walls, Jack and the soldiers are transported to an impossible version of their own world. One where great cities rise up into the sky and are endlessly circled by flying warships crewed by beings never seen before. As they set out to explore this strange land filled with violent tribes and vicious creatures, they uncover a brutal regime that takes slaves and technology from every mirror world they can find. Known as the Sky Lords, they are protected by legions of warriors who travel the skies in their flying warships, and they will stop at nothing to destroy the newcomers and retake the city that links the Mirror Empires together. It is a world where the rules of science and technology have been smashed to their very core. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nigel Peever.

Imagine you've just been rendered a refugee in the country where you were born--the country that has been the home of your ancestors for more than 2,500 years. You walk hundreds of miles with only what you can carry, until you run out of land. The brutal enemy that's following you is raping, mutilating, shooting, burning, and beheading your friends and neighbors. At the water's edge, you see before you 22 warships flying the flags of the Western democracies. With the city burning behind you and the enemy shooting at you from both sides, you're faced with only one option. You jump into the water and swim for your life. You're relieved to reach the Allied warships anchored in the harbor. But something is wrong! The sailors won't let you come aboard. Instead they use hoses and hot water to prevent you from climbing onboard. You look back toward the quay, but you're too exhausted to swim to shore. Suddenly you realize you're out of options. Is this a bad dream? Would civilized nations of the world order their sailors to stand down and watch you drown? It's finally time to learn the real story of the Peacemakers! 1. Language: English.

Now it's up to the President's new national security advisor, the irascible Texan Admiral Arnold Morgan, to foil delivery of the other 8 Kilos. Morgan sends the U.S. Navy's most deadly Black Ops hit-squads deep into Russian waters for an operation in which one wrong move could literally start World War III. 1. Language: English.

It is 1796 and a diminutive, Corsican-born French general has inherited a ragtag army and turned it into an unstoppable fighting force. Within months, Napoleon's storm rolls across Italy and strikes a lethal blow against the Austrian empire. But while the soil of Piedmont and Tuscany runs with blood, another battle takes shape on the mysterious Adriatic Sea. Alan Lewrie and his 18-gun sloop, HMS Jester, part of a squadron of four British warships, sail into the thick of it.
