Ciao, amici! I feel like I’ve been waiting more than a year to write this post… because I have! Though I’m sure you feel like I’ve been doing nothing but releasing Astral Conspiracy Series books lately.
Also because I have.
I wrote this series over the course of many months, but my publisher saved them all to release within a short time frame so we wouldn’t keep readers waiting for long between books. Today, it’s my profound honor and pleasure to announce the fifth and final book of the series, The Lab, is now live.
This series is a spinoff of the Invasion Universe saga by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant. I had to work within a world and timeframe they’d already created. I’ve written in pre-established worlds before and didn’t think I’d do it again. Doing so comes with unique challenges. But this world was fascinating to me, and I was happy to have been invited to play in that universe.
The Astral Conspiracy Series is my little slice of that story world. And book five, The Lab, is the culmination of the character journeys I started in The Gate. If you haven’t read the series but are interested in ancient alien theories, nefarious organizations bent on world domination, men-in-black type agents, government machinations, resistance factions, religious zealots, and near-future technologies, all wrapped up in one massive saga, I urge you to check it out. Here are links (in order) to all my books, as well as a related short story prequel.
About The Lab
One last mission. One last stand. One last hope.
Time is running out for the planet, and Reverie Sterling — one of the leaders of the Resistance — feels each tick of the clock. Her twins insist on traveling to Illinois to find Jovian, their paternal grandfather, who’s been communicating with them telepathically. He swears he has all the answers they’ve been searching for.
He does, but they come at a cost. A steep cost.
Now Reverie and the Resistance must make their last stand. The Astrals have judged humanity and found it lacking. Annihilation is imminent unless Jovian can deliver on his promise.
Earth’s best chance is deep in his laboratory under Monks Mound.
And the old man has one last surprise that no one is expecting.
If you’ve got any questions about the series, I’m happy to answer them. Otherwise, I hope you’ll join me in celebrating the saga’s end. Grazie!
