Fast forward six years and he's not only completed his first novel but he was signed on with Dey Ray Publishing to continue the trilogy and completed THREE novels. The plan was to release each novel a month apart in July, August and September. Ten days ago the first book, The Darwin Elevator in Jason Hough's series Dire Earth Cycle was released and it hasn't stopped growing in popularity. It's been a whirlwind for my sister's family from guest appearances to rave reviews by best sellers like Kevin Hearne and is now making his own appearance on the New York Time's Best Sellers List. How amazing is that for a first time writer to make the best sellers list?
In the mid-23rd century, Darwin, Australia, stands as the last human city on Earth. The world has succumbed to an alien plague, with most of the population transformed into mindless, savage creatures. The planet’s refugees flock to Darwin, where a space elevator—created by the architects of this apocalypse, the Builders—emits a plague-suppressing aura.
Skyler Luiken has a rare immunity to the plague. Backed by an international crew of fellow “immunes,” he leads missions into the dangerous wasteland beyond the aura’s edge to find the resources Darwin needs to stave off collapse. But when the Elevator starts to malfunction, Skyler is tapped—along with the brilliant scientist, Dr. Tania Sharma—to solve the mystery of the failing alien technology and save the ragged remnants of humanity.
But don't just take my word for it, check out all the reviews on amazon. Read the reviews from the professionals like Kevin Hearne. Bottom line, check it out for yourself and spread the word. I'm so happy for my brother in law for his accomplishment and I can't help but spread the word!
