Very pleased to announce that the first book in my 4 book science fiction series, The Shadeward Saga, is now available on Audible!
It’s taken quite a lot of work, more than I expected to be honest, in order to get this far, but I’m confident you’re going to enjoy this – the second of my books to be turned into an audio production and the first one I’ve narrated myself.
Rather than a ‘radio drama’ style as was done with Elite: Reclamation featuring the immensely talented multiple voices of Toby Longworth, this is more of an unabridged read through by myself. It is around 13 hours long!
Shadeward doesn’t feature a ‘soundscape’ other than some selected music to divide chapters and scenes, alongside a few minor sound modifications to highlight different aspects of the more complex scenes. A more traditional audiobook in other words!
Memorable Characters, Drama and Excitement
If you enjoyed my brand of story telling in my Elite books, you should enjoy this too. Kiri, in particular, is a woman you’ll love to hate, a memorable character in the same manner as my infamous Salomé.
For those of you wondering what this book is about, it’s rather a mix of genres! It’s set on a tidally locked planet some 10 light-years away from Earth. The inhabitants are humans, but they’ve lost the knowledge and technology of their past and it’s been confused with myth, legend and religion.
Over the course of the four books, those secrets are unlocked, the lost technology is found and the fate of the planet revealed.
There are elements of hard science fiction, mixed with fantasy, all seen through the eyes of three young people and a cast of adventurers, priestesses and warriors.
And more is coming!
Now that this audible book is complete, work continues. Here is what’s incoming in the near future.
