True to her name, JoJo set her eyes on the edge of the world and blazed through the stars. Pulling her allies back from the brink of destruction, and enacting a fair measure of it herself, the woman led her crew into Black Gate and beyond. Vengeance seen to, at least for the moment, she took the plunge into Sky Stone only to find that not all was as it seemed. Soaring her way through new friends and foes, she left all she holds dear in the hands of the one person she trusts… until it’s time for the Captain to rejoin her people and take a stand.
The Rims are now ringing with the news of the crew of the Xara-Mansura. For these battle-weary few, it is a time of celebration and loss. Much has happened, and they know even more is on the horizon. How they choose to face it will have repercussions across the system.
It is a time of change, and no one – not even the Captain’s indomitable First Mate – can prepare for every contingency. In this prelude to Starborne: The Freedom Road, Book Three of the BEYOND THE OUTER RIM SERIES, the players across the Rims begin to join together along three very distinct paths. There is a darkness moving throughout the Rims, but there are those who are stepping up to fight it. What can the motivated spirit not accomplish?
About the Author:
Born in a common house, in a common land, during a common time, Reiter was issued to the world in the same manner as any other notion of life. Born of circumstance and perspective, he came to see life from a standpoint most might label askew (but let’s not get him started on labels). It was through this angle of vision that his mind opened up to the limitless possibilities of thought and existence.
Since our first act is to covet, Reiter’s train of thought was detoured to mythology and how such fantastic stories were used to explain scientific fact. That is where his abilities were first applied; the battle that rages between Atlas and Hercules continues to this day. The Moon moves closer to the Earth and then further away, depending on who is winning the contest. It is a simple beginning, perhaps, but a beginning nonetheless and one that ushered other stories that grew along with the young man, encompassing greater scope and depth.
What some called daydreaming, he called a work in progress. There is a universe out there, full of theory and definition – waiting for its story to be told. It holds comedy, tragedy, adventure, mystery, horror, action and intrigue. Reiter is but one of its storytellers!
