A new series begins. A new adventure begins. And this one is in space!
Space is a frontier. Space is an adventure.
Levi Maclin was always interested in the vastness of space. He dreamed of sailing through the void, exploring new worlds, seeing alien suns. This summer, he hoped to have his chance. Instead of going to beach for their vacation, his family would travel across light-years to Outland Resort, humanity’s most distant colony, its farthest frontier. It was a getaway, an adventure, a dream come true…until it wasn’t.
Some vacations are ruined by hurricanes, others by blizzards, but Levi’s falls apart when a series of unidentified objects streak across the sky above Outland Resort. They aren’t meteors. They aren’t comets. They’re weapons, weapons trained on the resort and its whole world. Suddenly, his adventure takes an unexpected turn. As concern turns to panic, he can only think one thought: how did it all go so wrong?
This is one I’ve really been looking forward to putting out there. Think of it almost like The Expanse for kids, in a very vague sense. It’s told from the point of view of a small group of children and teens (POVs range from 11-17 in this one, but they’ll get older as time goes on), but don’t think that means there’s no drama involved. This is a serious story, or at least I intended it to be. The characters act young and immature, but they step up when needed.
Most of all, what I wanted to create with Innocence Reborn was something fun. In my original notes, the series was codenamed “Space Adventures”, because that was what I set out to write: the adventures of a bunch of kids in space. Later on, I’ll do a postmortem for the book, where I go into detail about the setting and my expectations. For now, just enjoy reading it.
You can pick up Innocence Reborn for a mere \$3/month on my Patreon. That same pledge also gets you access to Nocturne, Before I Wake, and the complete series of The Linear Cycle and Chronicles of the Otherworld, so there’s really no reason not to give it a shot. And stay tuned for future installments of this series, as I’m currently working on the sequel, Beyond the Horizon, and the adventures are far from over.
