The Planet Without A Sun
by: Jeremy Collier
“This was my first Steampunk type book I’ve ever read and I really enjoyed it. There is something about mixing the simplicity of The Wilds with the technology of the machines that I really liked! I really recommend this book to anyone who is interested in steampunk or even just futuristic cowboys”
-Patrick Solis II
“Downloaded this on a whim since it was free from a new author, which I usually don’t even look at, but it was surprisingly good. It was short enough to be a quick read, but had some very strong plot points. I don’t know if he has any more plans for this world, but I will keep my eye out for it.”
Aegion has lost faith. Faith in society, in the corrupt government Malos, and most of all in himself. He believes he is cursed to bring trouble to whoever crosses his path, forcing him to intervene in problems that are none of his business. Even miles away from the closest city, secluded in the deepest part of the dying wilderness, his curse brings problems to his front door.
This is why Malos has branded him as The Scourge of the Wilds, a danger to all, deserving only death. However, he often hears another name whispered, one he much prefers, though he doesn’t believe it himself, a hero.
But when his curse throws a young girl, Anadilcia, who is in search of her long lost father, at him, his whole life changes. She is being chased by a group of brutes who have vowed to get revenge and retrieve the ancient machine she took, their master has made it obvious failure is not an option. As far as Aegion is concerned, his curse has struck again, but this time it turns out much differently.
Welcome to Sinesol, a planet with a sun that is only a husk of it’s former glory, the dust of which has covered the planet and become an essential part of life, intertwined with both living creatures and inanimate objects alike. This, along with not one but two catastrophic disasters thousands of years prior, has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. However, humans are known for their resilience and desire to survive, even when all the odds are against them. Over the past few hundred years, the people of Sinesol have began to recover, at least as much as the evil Malos will allow them to.
