Prescott, AZ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/08/2014 -- Bringing a fresh new twist to the science fiction genre, Jay J. Falconer stormed the literary scene with gusto in September, 2011 with the release of Linkage. The novel, forming Part One of the Narrows of Time series, achieved critical acclaim with its save-the-world narrative infused with jaw-dropping twists and a touch of humor that have become hallmarks of Falconer’s style. Three years later and with fans chomping at the bit for more, the author is delighted to announce the release of Volume Two.
Incursion continues the story of a quest against evil and the iron-clad loyalty of two brothers trying to save humanity from extinction. As with all good sci-fi narratives – it’s not quite that easy.
Hunted, tortured, and marooned on remote Earth outpost Eutopia 3, Lucas Ramsay vows to stop at nothing to find his missing brother, Drew, as he battles to stay one step ahead of those who want his head—literally. It’s been over a year since the Krellian invasion of Earth, but he is no closer to finding Drew, who is lost somewhere in the cosmos. Lucas’ heart aches with the need to find his only brother; yet, he can’t allow emotion to distract him from his quest when he learns that the newly elected leader of the colony, Cyrus, is planning something sinister against the weary citizens of Eutopia 3.
During his search, Lucas is targeted by a ferocious, phase-shifting Taku Beast that wants his skin for dinner, and he befriends a group of mysterious alien life forms called the Baaku, a race of pre-adolescent telepaths who seem harmless, but something is off: Are they trying to help him or hurt him? He can't decide.
Lucas’ mentor, Professor Kleezebee, has an ingenious plan to travel across time and dimension to restore the mangled timeline with the help of the nearly-complete Incursion Chamber and Smart Skin Suit, but can Lucas outwit Cyrus and his lethal Royal Guards long enough to recover the stolen energy modules needed to power the incursion device?
Lucas knows that destiny is waiting for him, but so are the haunting shadows of his own past, leading him into the ultimate showdown against both time and himself.
“The loyalty between Drew and Lucas forms a key theme throughout the book, but the twist is that they’re actually foster brothers and one is disabled. This adds a very real-world element to the fictional story, as they battle time and their own pasts to hopefully triumph over evil both inside and outside of their own lives,” Falconer says, who maintains a popular blog for the science and technology audience.
To date, reviews for book two have been overwhelmingly positive.
Dave Lathrop says, “The second book in the Narrows of Time series is radically different from the first. Whereby the first book was totally grounded on planet Earth, this sequel broadens and advances the plot in ways you don't see coming. The author has expanded the horizons of the initial book in every direction possible, and the results are outstanding!”
“This is a very unique science fiction story. There is action from beginning to end. The book has excellent character development, and transitions very well from the first book in the series. This may be made into a motion picture someday,” says Joni Marino.
