Advance praise for The Hammer Falls

"A body slam of high-tech mayhem..."

"Delivers one gut punch after another in this science-fiction TKO."


The next time he dies...

... will be the last.

Can he save the woman he loves before his heart gives out for good?

Horace "The Hammer" Harkness is a gene-modified pit fighter twenty years past his prime. He loves the life of screaming fans and thundering theme music, but too many injuries and resurrections have wrecked his heart. If he loses one more match, game over.

Now his big comeback is in deep, deep trouble. If he fails, how will he repay all the money he borrowed to finance this fiasco?

In a world of blood-drenched circuses and fleeting fame, can a battered pit fighter outsmart the Russian mob before they exact revenge on Lilly? Or will he die trying?

If you love stories with with high-tech weapons, high-stakes action, snarky ninjas, and a touch of romance, you'll love The Hammer Falls

Reviews

"Travis Heermann's THE HAMMER FALLS is a raucous, entertaining, action-packed riot. Like his characters, Heermann punches hard from beginning to end, a skilled storyteller who knows exactly what he's doing. THE HAMMER FALLS reads like pure pulp--but like Philip José Farmer, Dashiell Hammett, and the other pulp masters, Heermann brings real heart and depth to his characters. Amidst the heavy-hitting violence, there's care and comedy and endearing sacrifice. Do not miss this book." - J.L. Forrest, author of the Songs at the End of the World series
