It is Earth year 2213—but, of course, there is no Earth anymore. Not since it was burned to a cinder by the sun, which has mysteriously begun the process of going supernova. The human race has fled to Mars, but this was only a temporary solution while we prepare for a second trip: a one-hundred-fifty-year journey to a distant star, our best guess at where we might find a new home.
Liam Saunders-Chang is one of the last humans left on Mars. The son of two scientists who have been racing against time to create technology vital to humanity's survival, Liam, along with his friend Phoebe, will be on the very last starliner to depart before Mars, like Earth before it, is destroyed.
Or so he thinks. Because before this day is over, Liam and Phoebe will make a series of profound discoveries about the nature of time and space, and find out that the human race is just one of many in our universe locked in a dangerous struggle for survival.
This is book one in an ambitious space epic—a powerful, emotional, pulse-pounding story of the final days of humanity's first home in the universe, and our desperate search for another.
BOOK 2: THE OCEANS BETWEEN STARS
It is Earth year 2223—but the Earth, along with the entire solar system, is gone. Liam and Phoebe, having barely escaped our exploding sun with their lives, are in stasis for the decade-long journey to the rogue planet Delphi, where they hope to catch up with the rest of the human refugees, find help for their injured parents, and pass along the devastating things they discovered on Mars: that the destruction of our world was no accident, and that someone might still be after them, trying to finish the job.
Phoebe, however, is carrying her own dark secret. One that finds her waking up secretly at various points in their journey, changing their path through space. One that will decide the fate of the human race and many others besides. One that, very soon, she must reveal to Liam, whether he's ready for the truth or not.
An epic adventure continues with a bold and terrifying quest into the outer reaches of time and space—one that will change our two heroes, and their friendship, forever.
