It took six months, some frustrating twists and turns during a very tricky second draft, and a bit of a scare with a way-too-optimistic pre-order date, but I’m finally glad (and relieved) to say that Consensus Breaking, the second of the Auran Chronicles series, is out now.
Following immediately on from the end of Message Bearer, Consensus Breaking follows Seb, Cade and Sylph as they deal with the fallout of their actions. Without spoiling anything for anyone who hasn’t read Message Bearer, it’s fair to say that what transpires is far beyond what any of them realised.
Book three is under way now, and I’m really looking forward to bringing the Auran Chronicles saga to a fitting end for all concerned. It’s been a story lodged in my head for years, and it’s been a challenging and thrilling experience putting it to (virtual) paper, thanks to the wonders of Kindle publishing.
Consensus Breaking is available to buy now from Amazon. Hopefully you’ll drop by and pick up a copy, and if you like it, I’d be most grateful if you could drop a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. If you don’t like it, please feel free to let me know why, so I can improve in future works.
The Consensus is broken. Magic is returning to the world…
When Seb and his friends are found by the very mage Families that they’d been seeking, he begins to think that his luck is turning at last, that he’s finally found somewhere to continue the journey he began with the Magistry.
Unfortunately, returning to this secret world is not the homecoming he thought it would be, and when rumors of another faction surface, one that is welcoming the newly awoken without prejudice, Seb is torn between his loyalty to his friends and to those of his fellow magi. He must make a choice. One that will have repercussions far beyond the internal struggles of the Aware.
And across the Shards, a new force is rising, a shadow from before the Weave itself. Long thought defeated, it soon becomes clear that the sheol were just the vanguard of a much greater terror, one that threatens the very foundations of reality.
