Cover Reveal/Release Date For The Stars Like Gods
THE STARS LIKE GODS - the finale to the Asterion Noir trilogy - is coming your way (via all major online retailers) in ebook and paperback on JUNE 6, 2019.
When man and machine are one and the same, time moves differently.
But it runs out all the same.
The Asterion Dominion government has fallen, its rulers slain—but in the Dominion, the dead rarely stay that way. A doomsday clock rushes headlong toward the day the monstrous alien shapeshifters known as the Rasu will demand their next tribute of lives. When denied it, the Rasu will burn every Dominion world to the ground.
Unless they can be stopped.
Nika, Dashiel and their allies fight to hold onto the reigns of power even as they search for a way to defeat the enemy. Their quest will take them from barren deserts to a remote wilderness to the hidden homeworld of an ancient, mysterious species, all to uncover a secret 700,000 years in the keeping.
With everything they thought they knew now called into question and the reckoning at hand, the Asterions’ past, present and future will collide in a last daring gambit to save all three.
700,000 years ago, the Asterions fled persecution for their pro-synthetic beliefs. In the safe harbor of a distant galaxy, they have evolved into a true biosynthetic race and built a thriving society upon the pillars of personal autonomy, mutual respect and boundless innovation.
Now that society is fracturing at the seams. Beneath lies built upon lies, the shocking truth as to why threatens the future of not merely the Asterions, but all life in the universe.
Cyberpunk and space opera collide in a thrilling new trilogy from the author of the epic Aurora Rhapsody space opera saga. Enter a world of technological wonders, exotic alien life, enthralling characters, captivating worlds—and a terrifying evil lurking in the void that will shatter it all.
Audiobook listeners, never fear - Pyper Down plans to start recording as soon as the final manuscript is ready, so expect the audiobook later this summer. THE STARS LIKE GODS already has a Goodreads page, so you can add it to your “Want To Read” shelf today. I’ll be sharing teaser quotes from TSLG as we get closer to release, so keep an eye on social media or this page.
For those of you who are still working your way through Aurora Rhapsody: first, fantastic! Second, you don’t need to finish Aurora Rhapsody to hop over to Asterion Noir, though there are some minor links between it and the final trilogy, Aurora Resonant. For an overview of Asterion Noir and how it relates to Aurora Rhapsody, check out this blog post: Introducing Asterion Noir. You can pick up the first two novels in ebook or paperback at all major online retailers worldwide and in audiobook on Audible, Amazon and iTunes.
While you’re waiting for TSLG, I wanted to let you know that the epic space opera collection, ROGUE STARS, is free for a limited time at all major online retailers. Sure, you’ve read Starshine, but in Rogue Stars you also get 6 more thrilling novels of space exploration and adventure. Download it for free from your retailer of choice.
