i write. i make up stuff. i adventure hard, so you don’t have to.
In the buildup to the release of the first massive novel in “The Saga of Shadows,” THE DARK BETWEEN THE STARS—which is set in the Seven Suns universe—I extracted an independent novella that shows some of the opening conflicts and characters. This is part of the novel, but if you want a sneak preview, you can read the full novella for free at Tor.com.
I love this universe—I believe Seven Suns is my masterpiece, my love letter to the science fiction genre as a whole. I hope you’ll give it a try.
The full novel, THE DARK BETWEEN THE STARS, will be released in hardcover on June 3. You can preorder now at your favorite physical or online store. (Both marvelous paintings are by Stephen Youll.)
