I STARTED my novel writing career with THE DIDYMUS CONTINGENCY, a time travel novel of epic proportions. I’ve been wary of writing another story solely focused on time travel because I wasn’t sure if I could come up with a concept as cool and meaningful, but when I dreamed up FLUX, I knew I had something that fans of Didymus would enjoy reading, and that I would love writing.

Set in Appalachian Kentucky, the characters and environment were fascinating for me to explore and bring to life. It’s a nook of the world we don’t talk–or even think–about much, but research turned up gobs of interesting history involving people, animals and…other things.

So prepare yourself for classic Robinson: frenetic action, crazy concepts, big surprises and yeah, I’m gonna make you cry, too.

Here’s the summary: 

Lost in time, the town of Black Creek, Kentucky becomes home to temporal layers of people, creatures, and monsters from disparate eras. Journey beyond the time of humanity and witness the rewriting of mankind’s genesis.

For Owen McCoy, a typical day on the job as head of security for Synergy, a research company conducting mysterious experiments, is boring at best. And that’s the way he likes it. Patrolling the Appalachian mountainside, where his now deceased father taught him how to hunt, is relaxing and
connects him to the past.

But today is not a typical day on the job. It begins with asking a thief to join him for breakfast. Seeking to set the young man on a better path, Owen invites him to walk the perimeter with him and consider a more honest living. Before their patrol can begin, they discover evidence that the facility has been breached. When Owen’s truck explodes, he’s confused, but ready for whatever might come his way.

At least, he thinks he is.

A wave of light-bending energy–the Flux–rolls down the mountainside, transporting Owen, and everyone in the nearby town of Black Creek, to October 14, 1985, the day before his father died. Two hours later, the second Flux hits, and then a third, and a fourth, each time collecting Black Creek residents from various times. They’re carried through eras filled with wild animals, monsters of myth, ancient beasts…and then beyond.

Joined by a ragtag group of temporal stowaways, including family members, Owen fights to restore order, stop the Flux and return home, facing off against futuristic tech, primal killers, and the fear of losing his father…again.

International bestselling author of THE OTHERS and INFINITE, Jeremy Robinson combines science, action, and strong characters to create an ever-changing landscape that explores the past, the human condition, and the lengths people will go to save those they love.

 

 

 

ALTER – Preview Chapters!

ARRIVING DECEMBER 4th!*

ALTER is my most mind-bending and heartfelt story since INFINITE. And like the main character of that ill-fated space adventure, Greg Zekser, a doctor from Massachusetts, finds himself alone in very unfamiliar and unfriendly territory. Unlike INFINITE, ALTER takes place in the depths of the Amazon jungle, on Earth, and is very much grounded in reality…and all its brutality. The other similarity to INFINITE is that I wrote this book while dealing with the worst effects of severe head-to-toe neuropathy, caused by a disease that might be Bartonella (stupid ticks!), and which I’m still struggling with today (it’s not as severe now). While Will suffered along with my mental anguish of the year before, Greg got a full dose of my physical discomfort, resulting in a more poignant story, as Greg and I discovered what physical suffering felt like for the first time, together.

While I’m not thrilled to have this disease, I AM thankful to be fortunate enough to channel my discomfort into something positive, the first two chapters of which can be found below.

*The audio edition will likely be out in February and is being performed by Luke Daniels.

 

 

1

A tree branch is the first thing I see upon waking. Normally, such a mundane thing wouldn’t garner a second glance, but as my eyes adjust to the shifting light around me, I focus on the twisting limb slicing through the air in front of me. The bark is smooth, as far as bark goes, like the hide of some hairless mammal. A hippo, perhaps. A few green leaves add color to its heathered gray surface.

As the branch grows larger, I stop seeing the bark and the leaves. All that remains is the limb’s kinetic potential.

A sound like screeching brakes drives home the limb’s murderous intent. The Cessna’s two pilots’ high-pitched screams reveal the state of their unpreparedness for what comes next: eternal supernatural life or nothingness. As my own scream builds, I realize I have yet to fully contemplate the issue myself. I’ve always been so focused on the plight of the here-and-now that I never really gave much thought to what comes next. Probably why I never finished that novel I started.

HELIOS is here!

For those new to the series, the first book, Herculean, took a group of characters from the Jack Sigler Thriller series and formed a new team. Joining the ranks of an ancient organization formed by the historical Hercules, they protect ancient relics, knowledge and creatures, from those who would destroy, pillage and use them. Even more important, they protect humanity from the ancient powers just waiting to be released back into the world. Now, the Cerberus Group is back, and this time the fate of the world is at stake.

SUMMARY:

THE BEGINNING OF THE END…

A deadly swarm of earthquakes shakes the planet. In the sky above, the sun appears to stand still.

While the world reels from the vast destruction, George Pierce and the Cerberus Group, a team of scientific and historical experts, uncovers an imminent threat straight out of history that must be stopped. But not everyone wants them to succeed.

An apocalyptic death cult made up of suicidal martyrs and true believers who will do whatever it takes to ensure the destruction of all life on Earth goes head-to-head with a billionaire tech-genius commanding an army of robots, on a quest to own the sun itself.

Caught in the middle, the Cerberus Group must fend off both sides while traveling to every corner of the map, and into the depths of myth and history, to find the holiest treasure on Earth–an artifact that can harness the power of creation. The prophecies are true.

…THE END IS NIGH.

Jeremy Robinson and Sean Ellis, the international bestselling team behind the Jack Sigler thrillers, including Cannibal and Empire, continue the new series that rewrites the way we see history. Rivaling the best of Matthew Reilly and James Rollins, Helios combines a blistering pace with fringe science and myths reborn.

DISCOVER THE INFINITE

Buy From Amazon

As many of you know, the past year was rife with personal challenges for me, including being told I had a brain tumor (turns out I don’t) and some kind of whacky chemical imbalance. You can read about it here. I started writing Infinite during my decline. During the worst of it, I wasn’t writing at all, for a period of nearly three months. Then, while my mind sorted itself out and I processed some weirdly intense and out of control emotions, I finished writing the book.

The result is a story that, in some ways, parallels my own journey through despair. As a result it’s a little more character driven and explores deeper themes. That doesn’t mean there aren’t monsters, craziness, and mayhem starting in Chapter 1, just that there is more to it. Probably most comparable to The Distance.

INFINITE

Have you ever wondered what’s at the edge of everything? What if you could travel there? What would you find? These are the questions that inspired Infinite. William Chanohk never asked or even wondered these questions, but his ancestor did, so now I’m taking him on a trip without end. That last sentence will make sense…later.

Despite the circumstances of this book’s writing, I had a lot of fun exploring the infinite. The book anchored me, and now I’m thrilled to be sharing it with the world. Since it’s a more personal book than my others, I’m a little nervous about what the response will be (you can reassure me by posting reviews on Amazon…which will also help sales!), but anyone who enjoyed Apocalypse Machine and The Distance will feel right at home with Infinite. On to the story!
