The first set of revisions is 75% complete, and I have to say I like how it's turned out. I hope you do as well. As soon as I finish, which will hopefully be in the next week, I'll be sending it out to my first round of beta readers to tear apart so I can build it back even stronger. I've also confirmed that my cover artist from book one, the talented Greg Bain, will be back with the cover for Book Two, so I'll be shooting him a draft soon as well so he can start putting designs together.
For those of you yet to read the first book, you may wish to stop reading here to avoid any (minor) spoilers. For those who have read it, I've put together a little tease of what to expect in book two.
Without further ado:
For five centuries, a band of souls guarded the afterworld. Their mission was to keep both life and the afterlife safe from rogue souls that would gather the power of gods. Within hours of Thomas Salazar fully joining them, the band was decimated.
Now Thomas and his fellow new recruit are the only ones left to stop the rising power that took down his more experienced friends.
How can they defeat something that is so much more powerful?
The only thing Thomas knows for certain is that failure will leave all of reality, including those he loves most, in the grips of a man that would reshape it in ways Thomas can’t accept.
Meanwhile, Jack McIntyre has awoken in an alien realm completely cut off from everything he’s come to know in the thirty years since his death. Nothing follows the rules he thought were set, and the local people fear him for reasons he can’t determine.
What’s more, forces far more powerful than he imagined possible are bent on catching him. How can he avoid them? Is it possible to return back home?
All of the questions seem to lead to one place:
