When I started working on the Infinite Timeline, I knew how many books I wanted to include. By the time I was halfway through the Timeline books, I knew exactly which books would be included in the crossovers and eventual epic finale, SINGULARITY. Well, I THOUGHT I knew. But I write by the seat of my pants. I don’t outline. I don’t plan. Often times I get to know my main characters as I write them. My critics would say that’s obvious, but I think it’s also why my fans like my books. They’re often unpredictable, because even the author doesn’t know what’s going to happen, sometimes not until the second I write it.
And that’s what happened here. TORMENT was a novel I wrote in 2010. It wasn’t supposed to be part of the Infinite Timeline, but then along came the wild, unplanned plot of INFINITE 2, and I suddenly had a pathway not just to TORMENT, but to all of my previous novels. Now, I didn’t use enough from the other books to make them a part of the Timeline, but TORMENT becomes a central focus, and thus it became the last entry into the INFINITE TIMELINE, thirteen years after its release.
But wait, there’s more! As a Jeremy Robinson fan, you might be saying to yourself, “I don’t remember a novel named TORMENT…” Well, that’s probably because twelve years ago, I was publishing a ton of books, and none of them came close to being as…graphic and dark…as TORMENT. So it was released under the pen name, Jeremy Bishop. Now, graphic and dark are pretty much par for the course. So we’re re-releasing the book under my name with a brand-spanking new cover, updating the audio edition, and releasing it in hardcover for the first time!
The Infinite Timeline has been so long in the making that it seems really strange to be in the final stretch, finally releasing the first of three crossovers. Honestly, I’m a wee be petrified. Doing one crossover is a gamble, because it means that your audience needs to be caught up on the previous books to fully enjoy the crossover. But doing THREE?! 2022 is going to be a massive roll of the dice. Happily, the audience for all the books in the Timeline is significant, and the opportunity to see characters from different books interact is fun. I know I had fun writing it. But we’re starting out strong with one wild story and equal parts action and hilarity.
Speaking of the Infinite Timeline…
In case you don’t know… The Infinite Timeline brings together nine standalone novels, many with overlapping epilogues, that all take place in the same universe. Picture the MCU, leading up to Endgame. We start with nine loosely connected novels, merge into two separate crossovers and then collide, everything together, all at once in one insane book titled SINGULARITY.
THE ORDER is the first of the three crossovers, featuring characters from THE OTHERS, FLUX, and EXO-HUNTER.
So, prepare yourself for some madness, gobs of sci-fi action, and more laughs than you can shake a screaming goat at. Things are about to get nuts, like Michael Keaton wielding a fire poker. “You want to get nuts?! Let’s get nuts!”
When two galactic forces collide—one spreading chaos, the other demanding order—New York Times and #1 Audible.com bestselling author, Jeremy Robinson, defends Earth with characters from three of his fan favorite novels: The Others, Flux, and Exo-Hunter.
Mysterious gateways are appearing throughout the universe, bridging violent civilizations, leading to war, and sowing chaos. While some species succumb to the pandemonium, the Chut’un forge an unholy symbiotic relationship—The Order—with red Europhids, a vast hive intelligence populating the universe’s far reaches. Desiring structure and fearing the unknown, they cull everything opposed to their plan, including the Europhids’ blue counterparts, carrying out a galactic genocide until only one blue Europhid remains…inside Moses Montgomery, aka ‘Dark Horse.’
As a Rapid Reaction Force Marine from 1989, Dark Horse and his team were sent 1000 years into the future where they defeated the Union, an evil fascist empire. Back in the present, after preventing the Union from ever forming, Dark Horse and his team of…unique operators from the past and the future are ready to kick back, listen to some tunes, and enjoy the timeline they saved.
But as the last threat to The Order’s machinations, Dark Horse finds himself with an alien target on his back. Joined by Dan Delgado and Wini Finch (The Others), and Owen McCoy (Flux), the team attempts to understand the gates that first appeared in New Hampshire, and now in Antarctica. Despite their vast experience with the strange and otherworldly, none of them are prepared for what comes next. Three members of the team are abducted, whisked away to another planet. Alive or dead, no one knows.
Dark Horse and his now rag-tag team struggle to track down their missing teammates while being hunted themselves. With the fate of his friends—and all of Earth—hanging in the balance, Dark Horse is forced to take insane risks, create chaos, and do anything to get his people back.
TO SAVE HUMANITY… …HE MUST SACRIFICE HIS OWN.
Robinson is at his best when combining elements of science-fiction, horror, and edge-of-your-seat action, laced with unpredictable humor. The Order is the perfect marriage of these elements, telling a story that is, at times, moving, and at others, laugh-out-loud outrageous. The Order is pure entertainment from a New York Times and #1 Audible.com bestselling author with an unparalleled imagination.
THE ORDER has been narrated by the indefatigable R.C. Bray, the voice behind nearly all of the Infinite Timeline. Once again, he has brought my characters to life, made my jokes funnier, and captured the book’s tone, providing an experience unlike any other. If you’re a reader, I recommend reading as you normally would, but if you really love the story and want to experience it again, give the audiobook a listen and hear the book in a new–and extremely entertaining–way.
The ONLY reason something as ambitious as a universe of books with three crossovers is remotely possible is because I have badass, mofo fans. You guys have been spreading the word, posting reviews, and helping boost sales for the Timeline books, ensuring that what I’m trying to pull off moves forward. Well, we’re full steam ahead now. There’s no stopping us. But keep the reviews coming, and let’s make this universe impossible for Hollywood to ignore. The dream would be multiple series on a streaming service, mixed with a few movies, all coming together for three insane movies. Can you imagine?! I can. Now we just need to get their attention.
If you want to make sure you’re one of the first people to find out more, see the new covers, never miss a release date, and hear about the Hollywood news that’s brewing, come join the Tribe on Facebook. It’s a 2000+ member group of fans (and myself) talking about the books. Hope to see you there!
It’s no secret. Writing a sequel to Infinite, my best selling and most reviewed novel ever (by a lot), has intimidated me for years. But fans have been wonderfully persistent, asking for the story to continue, and, well, sales justify it. But sequels are tricky, especially for a twisty novel like Infinite. In the long history of sequels, writers attempted to recreate the magic of the first book or movie, repeating a similar story, following the same beats, and hoping to strike gold twice. But most of the time, they fail. And not because they’re bad stories on their own, but because the very act of trying to recreate something—a little bit different—robs it of the magic that made it wonderful in the first place.
So, I went a different route, deciding that Infinite2 should be its own creature. It didn’t need to feel like the first book or have the same kind of surprises. Instead, it follows its own path, has its own vibe, and has very different kinds of surprises. The result is that Infinite2 is one of my personal favorite novels (of mine) that many advance readers are saying is better than the original.
If that’s not enough to convince you, here’s the summary!
William Chanokh is immortal…and he’s trapped on the Galahad, an interstellar starship on a never-ending journey through open space.
His only companions are Capria—mortal and in cryo-sleep—and Gal, an artificial intelligence, and the love of his life, with whom he spends every waking moment in the ‘Great Escape,’ a virtual paradise. After untold years living countless lives, Gal begins acting strange. Possessive. Violent. Paranoid.
Positive that something in the real world is causing her to malfunction, Will attempts to leave the Great Escape, but he finds himself a prisoner. Guided by a voice from reality, he is thrust into a series of torturous narratives, each one designed to break his will and keep him trapped in virtual reality.
Betrayed by his digital love, his long-term memory overwritten, and enduring violent manipulation, Will painfully peels back layers of simulation, fighting to reach reality 1.0—where the nightmares are real.
The Others has been in the works for a long time, and I’ve been chomping at the bit to release it. We’re nearly there (the book will be released on either July 10 or 17) and I couldn’t wait any longer to share these sample chapters with you in both text and audio, which we will be attempting to release in conjunction. There is no pre-buy option, so if you enjoy the chapters and want to snag the book, please sign up for the newsletterso you don’t miss the release. If everyone who would have pre-bought the book buys it on day 1 or 2, it actually helps sales a lot (algorithm stuff) and if those same people come back to review the book…well, sales will be out of this world… I promise the book is better than that pun.
Hope you enjoy the sample chapters!

“You know I don’t like coming here, Harry.” Sheriff Albert Godin dusted off his hat, despite it being clean. “Especially for something like this. Even more so at this time of night.”
Godin’s stomach lurched as he looked down at the dead horse, its tongue lolled up atop its snout, as though mocking him from beyond the equine grave. Part of him felt like the creature was staring at him, too, but it had no eyes.
The cause of death was one or all of those things. There was no evidence about which had occurred first. Aside from the dead animal, and what was missing, there was no evidence at all.
