Everything is connected.
It is the year 11,012 AD. The world is powered by Luminum, an incredible and exotic particle, generated by the Sun. It is the source of the Link, a universal quantum communications system. The entire human race has one unified government, known as The Alliance. After cataclysmic attacks on all major settlements in the Solar System, most of the human population is dead or missing. As their world collapses, Helia, Adlan and Soren, are flung into a millennia-long conspiracy.
Helia learns a powerful and dangerous secret about Luminum, and the Link that has been encoded in her very genes. A secret that has her marked for death by the Alliance. Adlan finds himself fighting for his life on an icy outpost beneath Europa. As he tries to uncover the lies of the Alliance, and what really happened in the attacks, he begins to doubt his own intentions and sanity. Soren is trapped on the Lunar Settlement, and forced to trust a secretive, enigmatic man named Riss because he keeps saving her life. Ominous signs start to emerge that they face a much darker, and more terrible threat. Known only as the Architects, they seek to enslave or destroy any who remain. A war will soon begin, but only if Helia, Adlan and Soren, decide to fight it. Faced with the choice between living forever with the ones they love, and fighting powerful and unknown forces, the three of them, linked by a destiny greater than they ever imagined, will chart a course that determines the future of the human race.
Targeted Age Group:: 15-49How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
One of the things I feel frustrated about in science fiction, is the way the characters, and character development is ignored. As sci-fi authors, we fetishize space ships, wax poetic about weapons and technology, and endlessly fixate on the minutia of worldbuilding. The intricate and complicated relationships between characters aren’t often explored. Characters are more than vehicles of plot, we should aim to make the reader feel as if they know them, to really root for them. That’s one of things I enjoyed about writing, is the characters coming alive, as I could talk to them through the pages. I hope readers feel that too.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write through the good days, bad days, meh days. Write when you’re happy, sad, mad, whatever. Eventually, it will turn into something great.
I started writing when I was nine; we lived in a small village with no Internet, but I fell in love with the Word Processor. When the village library ran out of children’s books for me to read, I decided to write my own stories. I grew up into a very different career path, but my love of writing never went away. I finally decided to sit down and set the story I had free.
I always wanted to write stories, since I was a little kid living in a small village in Africa. I took a seventh month sabbatical from my real life to put to paper a fantasy that had been writing itself in my head for years. Countless pages of research, and even more nights lying awake, staring at the heavens above, I started to imagine the future nine thousand nine hundred and ninety years ahead.
I hope the story is as enchanting to read as it was to write.
