The cover reveal!
Are you ready?
Here’s more about it:
The Oceans Between Stars (Chronicle of the Dark Star #2)
On sale date: February 13th 2018
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.
Kevin Emerson’s science fiction epic 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.
And in case you missed it, here’s more about book 1, Last Day on Mars:
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 desperate struggle for survival.

I have been wanting to read Last Day on Mars. I better catch up before the second one comes out!
Hi, I am a recycling fool… Also, I upcyle items, have a shower timer, use a water purification at our kitchen sink, and I donate a lot of clothing, appliances, etc., to various organizations.
Many thanks, Cindi
I recycle everything that I can, down to the smallest scrap of paper, to help save the earth. I also combine errands to save gas.
“Tell us what you’re doing now to help save the Earth.” Geeze, not enough. Supporting sane people who understand that man-created global warming is real is a start.
I try to reduce how much electricity I use
I recycle as much as I can and I’m teaching my daughter (and students) how to recycle!
Recycling!! Love this series!
I pay attention too where my food comes from and buy accordingly. I also participate in a clothing swap every six months and am big on recycling, refurbishing, and repurposing clothing. Finally, I talk a lot with my students about climate change and what they can do!
Recycling! It’s an easy thing to do. Can’t wait to read the second book. Loved book 1 in this series!
I do a lot of basic things – recycle as much as possible, don’t run water unnecessarily, hang my clothes outside to dry, plan errands, drive conservatively (try to make the most of my gas mileage) only lights on in the room I am in. I clean with a lot of vinegar and baking soda.
Reducing the number of plastic bags and bottles I use, and turning off the light when I’m not in the room.
