There’s just eight days to go till Wanderer – Origins hits the shops, so it’s time for a slightly longer sneak preview…
SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t read the first three Wanderer books then what follows will contain spoilers!
First Three Paragraphs
Jess sat lost in wonder as he soaked up information from the Wanderer’s sensors. Since escaping slavery on the Wanderer he had grown used to travelling through the swirling mists of jump space, but this… this was something else.
Jump space existed alongside normal space, though it was very different. Ships travelled far faster in jump space but with no way to change direction or speed. Other ships were never seen and sensors couldn’t penetrate the mists at all. Normally. The Wanderer was the exception to both rules, being able to change direction in jump space and detect other ships. Even so, when travelling through jump space Jess was always aware that they were somewhere very different from real space.
Jess had believed jump space was as fast as any ship could go. Now he knew differently. The Wanderer was moving far faster than was possible in jump space. A journey which should have taken months would now take less than seven hours.
That’s it for now, but stay tuned. I’ll be previewing the entire first page, and then the entire first chapter…
