The Rebellion: Eris

Available in ebook and paperback.

This action-packed dystopian novel by the best-selling author of the 1929 Series takes you far into the future where freedom and truth no longer exist.

After a worldwide pandemic decimates the population, those left alive fall for the promises of a tyrannical regime. Decades later, no one knows the world was ever free, save a small group of men and women brave enough to escape.

Nicholi, a third-generation rebel, now leads the village his grandfather founded sixty years earlier. Sheltered deep in the Sayan Mountains of Russia, he trains resistance fighters for the rebellion and copes with the reckless behavior of his jealous younger brother.

Quinn, the latest recruit smuggled from the city is a distraction for Nicholi and soon ignites his passion for something other than war. After a bitter betrayal, Nicholi learns a dark family secret that forces an urgent decision. While balancing what’s best for his people and fulfilling his own destiny, he is caught up in a life or death game of power and obsession that could destroy everything his ancestors worked for.

“It was an awesome retreat into a world of adventure and adversity. The main characters are engaging and human,” says one Amazon reviewer of Sayan Knights. Another notes: “You will find romance, combat, envy, developing relationships....and wisdom.”
