The Tapache’s Promise Trilogy
Scif-fi novelist, James Murdo, release the second instalment of The Tapache’s Promise Trilogy, Echoes of Time, on 27th September 2022. An immersive read, this epic sci-fi mash up brimming with intriguing elements akin to those stand out moments in the likes of Altered Carbon, Star Trek and The Hunger Games.
Picking up on the themes of book one, Echoes Of Gravity, Echoes of Time explores friendship, despite all of what has gone before, and the otherworldliness of alien life, enabling the reader to ‘hit the ground running’. This unputdownable second-installment reinforces Murdo’s growing reputaiton within the sci-fi community, and is told with the literary gusto of an author who is passionate about his subject.
Echoes Of Time
Splintered minds. A hidden city. Alien evolution directed by thought alone.
Seventy years have passed since Kera unlocked the secrets of the dummy node, and the Administration reigns supreme. But all is not as it seems. Half-minds satisfy the Administration’s ruling class, and now the true leader wants to emerge from the shadows.
Meanwhile, on the desolate plains of Barrenscape, an attempt to trap the Breaker goes awry, unveiling an ancient structure from a time so distant that even the Vaesians have forgotten. The Breaker’s lair may have been found, but it’s not what anyone expected.
Will the burgeoning power of the Administration be enough to combat the enemy lurking outside Fadin? Will the true nature of the Source finally be revealed? Diyan searches. Yena waits. Paran explores. What of Kera?
“Echoes of Time is an epic space opera, adventure and mystery bundle. With the story taking place over three books, this is book two.
Central to the plot are the bonds of friendship of four Roranians, as well as the theme of the ‘alienness’ of alien life, their potentially incomprehensive motives, and the strangeness that might exist also permeate the trilogy, and whilst completely immersing the reader, there are anchor points they can relate to.”
James Murdo’s novels predominantly settle into the space opera genre, criss-crossing the line between hard and soft science fiction, as he takes you across the Wanderer Universe, often featuring the Wanderer civilisation of advanced machine intelligences. He has an ongoing Trilogy (Tapache’s Promise Trilogy), a growing work of standalones (collected under the Wanderer Universe series banner), and an ongoing series (Wanderers series).
