Every now and then I release a book that makes me smile when I think about it. The Last Hunter, SecondWorld, and The Others are good examples. They’re books that are were as fun for me to write as they hopefully were for you to read. Tribe was the kind of book that didn’t feel like work to create, but felt more like a good time with friends. Now that I’m done writing it, I miss Sarah and Henry, the main characters. And hopefully, if this book sells as well as I think it will, we’ll see them again in the future.
Not only did I have fun writing this book, but I received early encouragement that Tribe was something special from advanced readers, and from my editor who said, “This is your most action-packed and fun novel ever.” I then heard from R.C. Bray, the narrator, who has never offered an advance opinion of a novel. He said, “This novel is so good, it’s hard to believe you wrote it.” Tongue in cheek, but the point is…it’s my best book since The Others (without the serious tone of Infinite or Alter).
To be clear, while Tribe is well written, it isn’t a literary masterpiece. If you’re a long time fan, you already know that. But it is fun, insanely action-packed (think Jon Wick meets 300), and full of memorable characters that you’re going to care about.

For Henry, a seventeen-year-old who feels no fear, the day starts like any other–homeless and alone on the streets of Boston. For Sarah, a twenty-year-old college dropout, it’s an early morning serving donuts and coffee to commuters at North Station. Fate brings them together at the scene of a bank robbery, which they foil together, along with a mysterious and wealthy woman named Helen, who offers to reward them for their bravery.
But before they can reach Helen’s penthouse, they are assaulted by men and women from all walks of life, including police officers. Helen displays impressive fighting skills, fending off the attacks, allowing Henry and Sarah to make their escape–but they are spotted and pursued by the violent cult, out for Helen’s blood…and now theirs.
Racing through the streets of Boston, Sarah and Henry are propelled into a strange and ancient underworld where the impossible is real, where the old world still lives, and where the gods still walk among us. As the pair wages war against the killers hunting them, they discover the truth about who their deceased parents were, and that their lives could be far more exceptional than either believed possible…if they can survive the day.
With TRIBE, New York Times bestselling author, Jeremy Robinson, brings mythology to the modern world, combining his trademarked fast-paced action and well-developed characters, and taking them to new levels of craziness. It’s 300, John Wick, and Wonder Woman rolled into a new kind of literary insanity.
There are a few videos for Tribe worth checking out. The first is the teaser trailer, in which I focused on conveying the feel of Tribe, rather than the story. The second is a live prologue reading by R.C. Bray at RobinsonFest. And the last is an extended sample of the audiobook.
