The end of a trilogy is a mixed blessing. On one hand, I feel relief that I’ve successfully brought the story through three novels, hopefully entertaining readers along the way. On the other hand, I’m going to miss writing about Zel Aurora.
The Digital Sea was the first book I published, almost two years to the day. I started writing that book almost two years before that. So I’ve been writing and thinking about this character for almost four years. As a flawed and powerful woman, she has a special place in my heart.
Rather than indulge in any more maudlin prose, I’ll move on to the sales pitch. Neochrome Aurora takes all your favorite characters from book one and book two, and throws them into the maelstrom of a world ecosystem collapsing. There’s action, there might be quantums humming coldly in the dark, and there most certainly will be love–misguided and tragic as only Zel Aurora can experience.
It’s been a long four years, I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have. Sometime in the future, I might have a few more stories about Zel when I’m done writing about my other worlds, but for now, enjoy the last book of the trilogy: Neochrome Aurora.
A city-destroying sand storm approaches Beijing. A man-made plague of empty realities consumes rich and poor alike. War clouds gather on the plains of Africa. As the climate spirals towards a tipping point, factions position themselves for a radically changed world.
When Zel Aurora embarks on a journey to help the Quicksilver Spider discover his beginnings, she uses the adventure to teach her girls life lessons. But when a digital sea plague invades the idyllic Louisiana estate, Zel cannot ignore the world’s decent into chaos any longer. Now Zel is faced with a terrible choice: risk her daughters as she goes after an old foe, or leave a friend to die.
