If you’re the kind of person who likes to get lost in fantastic futuristic worlds, or who tries to figure out the twists of a story before they happen, I think you’re going to like this series. It’s fun and fast-paced and intense and challenging and once you get started I bet you’ll have a hard time stopping. I grew up devouring sci-fi and fantasy and always wanted to write a sci-fi epic. Sure, I loved the shoot-outs and car chases, but I’m also fascinated by the mind, and identity, and how our grey-matter congeals electrochemical signals into thought. When I first began this series I knew the beginning and the ending, I wanted to tell the story of a man who dies tragically and is brought back to life twice–with the second version having to deal with the fallout of all the first’s quest for revenge on the man who killed their wife. He didn’t make the decisions, but still had to live with the consequences. What would that do to someone?It took two-hundred and forty thousand words to find out. I released the story as a series of five serial novellas over the winter of 2015/16. Afterwards, I realised this was a mistake.See, I’ve got a lot of story left to tell and wanted to keep writing more in the series, but didn’t want to continue with writing novellas. So this is why I’ve re-edited and re-released the first five novellas as a novel trilogy. The first three novels are one long interconnected story, so be warned: there are cliffhangers. But don’t let that put you off. I’ve heard from lots of people who’ve said they had a hard time putting it down, so the cliffhangers aren’t likely to bother you much. I know there’s a lot to choose from these days, but if you give this series a chance, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.Thanks again for reading.Damien
