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.
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!”
To see how the whole timeline connects, I direct you to this handy-dandy post detailing everything.
The next installment of the Infinite Timeline is THE ORDER, which is…
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!
A month ago I announced that several of my series would be coming to an end, in part because the stories have reached natural ending points, and like the best TV shows, I want to end their runs before they become hum drum. Better to go out on a bang, I think. The Nemesis Saga is the first of those stories to reach its finale, and it’s the mother of all finales, crossing over with a good number of my other novels, and series, some of which have already ended. This is a bittersweet newsletter, but I think once you read the epic craziness that is Project Legion, you’ll agree that it’s the perfect way to end the most successful Kaiju Thriller series in American literary history. So let’s jump right in to the book description, followed by crossover details.
The fifth and final Nemesis novel completes the story arc started in Project Nemesis… Wait, no, that’s not accurate. The story arc for Project Legion was started TEN years ago, in my second novel, Raising the Past. That’s right, for the past ten years, I’ve been seeding the plot for Project Legion, hinting at clues along the way and revealing the story in a larger way, starting at the end of Project Hyperion, which connected the dots. And now, with Project Legion, I bring together characters from several novels, starting with my very first to some of my most recent. I don’t link all 50+ novels, but there has NEVER been a literary crossover event like this outside of comic books. For more details on the crossover, and which novels are linked to Project Legion, check out the next article.
I’m going to be working on a crossover short story to be included in Jonathan Maberry’s upcoming Joe Ledger anthology. Rather than leaping right in, I thought it would be fun to get reader feedback first. Which character would you most like to see meet, and kick ass with, Joe Ledger? Where will the story take place? What will the tone be like? This is your chance to weigh in and help shape the story. Here’s a link to the short survey: http://goo.gl/forms/DRdWwRKT0Z
