Teaser:

Kane and his companions find themselves catapulted into an alternate reality, a parallel universe where the course of events in history is dramatically different. What hasn't changed, however, is the tyranny wrought by the Archons on mankind...this time, with human "allies".

Book #1 in the new Lost Earth saga, a trilogy that chronicles our heroes' paths through three very different alternate realities...where the struggle against the evil Archons goes on...

Back Cover:

WORLD WITHOUT END

The nuclear blasts at the turn of the millennium have touched humanity with the cold breath of extinction, and the exiles from the centers of power realize that the odds for survival haven't changed greatly under the new order...

A former enforcer for the new lords, Kane found shelter in Cerberus Redoubt, along with the archivist Brigid and fellow magistrate Grant. They know that unseen forces guard an ancient secret, which has thrown a dark shroud over the future. Behind them stands the impenetrable past. But all that changes when they are suddenly catapulted into another reality -- and here, as they attempt to remake the future, the enemy races to turn time into a weapon of destruction.

HELLBOUND FOR EXCELLENCE!
by One Eye Chills
This first of a three part storyline furthers the Outlanders series. A staggering larger view of this universe is once again shown by the illustrious writer, Mark Ellis.

The ideas and scope of the differing casements, where Kane and company are different in alter-ego type personality's in other dimensions - was truly a heart-pounding and enjoyable read.

A Great Start!
by Outlanders
I have recently finished the first in the Lost Worlds Trilogy and have to say that it is an incredible start to the series within a series. At first I was a little apprehensive with the alternate earth's but as I read further the idea began to grow on me. The author has shown us a brief glimpse into the worlds that Kane and Co will be visiting. What we were shown, the future where Nazi Germany had won WW2 was truly horrifying, and makes me more thankful than ever that the allies had won the war. Col. Thrush (introduced in Omega Path) has thrown down the gauntlet and has challenged Kane to stop him. Never to back away, Kane has accepted the challenge and will be doing what no other person in the history of either series has done. Travelled to a parallel casement. The mini series will be incredible and I can't WAIT for the next installment.

First chapter of the best OL trilogy
by Robey
Hellbound Fury is one of the grandest adventures in the entire series. Even at this point Outlanders had avoided most of the pitfalls which plagued Deathlands and continues to do so.

The characters evolved quite a bit over the first couple of years. This first part of the Lost Earth Saga featured a fascinating alternate Earth where Nazi Germany won WWII, under the planning of Colonel Thrush.

And most importantly, Hellbound Fury really whetted my appetite for the next installament in the trilogy.

Alternate casements...
by The Phantom
The first book in the Lost Earth trilogy starts right where Iceblood left off. I recommend reading Iceblood first, it is really a prelude to this trilogy.
The pieces of the stone Kane gets in Iceblood are the keys to alowing he and Grant and Brigid to travel to parallel casements.

A very imaginitive story, the viewpoints of the alternate earths are fascinating, and further broaden the whole world of possibilities in the OL universe.

The Thrush character in the alternate world is the main villain, with Kane and Grant under his command, in a world where the Nazis had won World War II. The scenes involving the giant OGRE tank were my favorite of the novel, Kane faces a terrifying army of master race monster warriors, and another confrontation with his old enemy Salvo. I liked the scene where Kane blows up Hitler's face off Mt. Rushmore.

I also liked the goings on concerning Beth-Li and the trouble she causes in the redoubt.

One thing strange about this book is it has the most technical blunders I've ever seen in a book. It's like the manuscript went through a blender and then wasn't edited. It was annoying at times, but I tried not to let it distract me from the enjoyment of the novel.
