Absent Souls: publication date and new description

Absent Souls - High Resolution


I’m very pleased to announce that Absent Souls (The Transcendence Trilogy: Book 2) will be available to buy as an e-book from Friday 28th November, exclusively on Amazon. To help give you a flavour of what the story’s about, here’s the product description.

One death, two nations on the brink of war, and four people fighting the ghosts of their past.

Mick O’Driscoll has a problem. A man has died in the Scrambles, and nothing happens in the Scrambles without his permission, or so he thought. The death spells trouble and O’Driscoll knows it. The question is, who killed the Prime Delegate’s brother on his turf and why?

Set two years after the events of Second Chance, Absent Souls follows the story of four people struggling to deal with events in the present while tormented by events from the past: an Investigator, tortured by the memory of a man he couldn’t find and a crime he was unable solve; a crime lord, forced to live a life he inherited but never truly wanted; a Professor, using academic success to drown out his guilt; and a Global Governance operative, slowly becoming the very thing she’s fighting against.

Forced to work with those they distrust in an effort to uncover the truth, it soon becomes clear that it’s not just their own lives they need to protect, but the very future of humanity that’s at stake.

So what do you think? Does it whet your appetite enough to buy the book?

  1. If you’ll allow me to say so, that’s a *brilliant* summary/teaser for your story. I don’t suppose you’d like to write mine for me, would you? 😉

    • Thank you, Jools 🙂 I’ll pass on your kind offer, if you don’t mind. I believe writing a book’s teaser is as special form of torture designed to punish an author for all the creative flights of fancy they’ve enjoyed during the previous few months. I prefer writing books.

      • Drat and double drat! Am gearing up to the torture at this precise moment. As usual, you are the example to follow 🙂

  2. Now I’m feeling guilty I haven’t got your first book, Dylan… Don’t worry, after we move, I’m planning to get both novels on my Kindle thanks to a couple of Amazon vouchers, so very much looking forward to a treat. Well, two treats!

    • It feels even closer when you’re reading it through for the nth time looking for errors that may have slipped through the many, many nets of proofing..
      Absent Souls has been written as the second of three, not a a stand alone, so you will need to have read Second Chance (although that shouldn’t be an issue for you!).

Don't be shy, talk to me. I promise I won't bite.
