Reaching the surface was just the beginning.
In The 13th Continuum, humanity was on the brink of extinction after a cataclysmic event. Chosen candidates took refuge in various continuums—underground, underwater, and outer space—until Earth was safe to repopulate again. One thousand years later, in the underwater 13th Continuum, Myra Jackson envisions what the Surface is like—a place and topic that is strictly forbidden and punishable by death in her totalitarian world. However, when she learns of a frightening truth, she and her friends risk everything to reach their rightful home and to save their colony. To do that, Myra must find her connection, Captain Aero Wright—a highly skilled soldier from the space colony in the Second Continuum.
In Return of the Continuums, after their struggle to reach the Surface, Myra and her friends set out to find the First Continuum. But to get there, they have to travel through a hostile landscape, including hostile inhabitants of other continuums. The friends must make an unlikely ally if they are to live long enough to reach the First Continuum and learn the secret behind the 1,000-year-old cataclysm and the hope of saving humanity.
The 13th Continuum was my first Sci-Fi read and I immediately loved it. I went through all sorts of emotions with each chapter and was cheering for Myra to escape a world run by a fanatical religious sect. As I got near the end of the book, I already knew I wanted more. The sequel was even better and left me shocked at the end. Of course, I won’t spoil any of it for those who’d like to read it. Honestly, I can’t wait for the final book. I’m sure it’s going to be superb!
For all the YA/Sci-Fi fans, I recommend this series. Return of the Continuums will be released on November 1, 2016. As always, feel free to post your comments. Happy reading!
