What is Starbreaker?
Starbreaker is an epic science fantasy series inspired by the best of American and British speculative fiction, heavy metal and progressive rock music, and nineteenth-century Romanticism. Originally intended to be a single stand-alone novel, I re-imagined the story as a tetralogy (a quartet of novels) upon my publisher’s request.
What are the books called?
Unlike many fantasy writers who don’t necessarily know how their series will end, or what titles they’ll use for each of their novels, I know exactly how the story will end, and I can tell you the title of each book. Here they are, in order:
- Without Bloodshed
- The Blackened Phoenix
- Proscribed Construct
- A Tyranny of Demons
What makes this science fantasy?
Starbreaker is set on an alternate Earth less than a century into the future. After a collapse remembered by the survivors as Nationfall, humanity rebuilt their civilization and sparked a Second Renaissance. The resurgent human population lives and works with human-level artificial intelligence, settlements on Luna and Mars debate whether and how to preserve the landing sites of pre-Nationfall spacecraft, and an elite corps of Adversaries watch over businesses and governments to root out corruption and abuse.
However, a millennia-old conspiracy uses subterfuge and magic to maintain its control of the world. A threat to humanity’s survival and that of a race which lived among humanity since the dawn of human civilization waits to break free of its underground prison. The person best suited to face this threat doesn’t know he’s not human, but a living, thinking bioweapon.
