Book Two of The Price of Peace Trilogy!
G.I. Joe vs. Cobra.
America's elite fighting force vs. the terrorist organization determined to rule the world. Ten years after a brutal battle decimated the two sides, the pieces are falling into place for Cobra's return.
But why now? What is their master plan? Ten years after the Marvel Universe ended, the next step towards world domination begins.
America's most elite anti-terrorist task force, G.I. Joe, has existed in some form for over thirty years. Throughout the 1980's, their conflict with Cobra traversed the planet and changed the global landscape forever.
Several years later, the signs are there. The clues start small, but quickly spread world wide. Cobra Commander is still alive, and the Cobra organization is slowly coming back to life.
Calling in some old veterans, and trusting in some new recruits, the G.I. Joe team comes back together to battle this returning threat. They must overcome tall odds and political intrigue as Cobra prepares to launch their most aggressive, insane plot ever to cripple the United States and topple democracy for good.
Picking up where the original Marvel Universe left off, G.I. Joe: The Price of Peace brings the G.I. Joe and Cobra conflict to the next millennium, with ramifications that will be felt forever!
The nefarious Cobra organization has completed the first phase of their dramatic return to power. While political machinations work hard to keep G.I. Joe at bay, General Hawk brings the team together under the cover of night.
In Book One: Snake Bite, the world seemed like a safe place. Cobra had been defeated…more than defeated, they had been decimated, and the world of International terrorism seemed to be much more manageable.
However, snakes are resilient, and slowly, evidence is revealed that not only is Cobra still operating under the darkness, but they are getting ready to rise up and strike a blow deep into the throat of the world. Various military operations throughout the United States have caught the attention of the right people in Washington, and even as the G.I. Joe team comes together, forming a bond over their own lost souls, Cobra operatives, new and old, begin launching their operations.
The old guard is recruited, while new blood joins the fight, though not all of the veterans are so happy to rejoin the G.I. Joe and Cobra conflict. After Lady Jaye made the ultimate sacrifice, Flint can’t bring himself to join the war yet again, meanwhile G.I. Joe operatives are captured, and worse. To launch this most sinister of plans, Cobra Commander is utilizing his new Shadow-Viper corps, along with his personal bodyguard Snakebite, and his only daughter, a young woman known only as Whisper. No longer content to operate secretly, Cobra launches their plan and the most powerful man in the world is their first target! The mark has been left, and there is no choice but to bring G.I. Joe back into action.
So they prepare… to Counter Strike!
