What’s it About?
I’m glad you asked!
Antiquity’s Gate forced two realities to collide—what followed tore one of them apart.
Now those who remain coexist beneath the shelter of a domed Antarctic city, held together by a tenuous peace and an increasingly dystopian hierarchy. Any hope of one day leaving the confines of Sanctuary is little more than a fading ember.
A mid-level systems operator, Ripley does his best to stay out of trouble. His best friend Felix, an irreverent half-breed shunned by society, can’t seem to do the same. When Felix’s family is targeted by an unjust law, there’s nowhere to run. The city of Sanctuary had once been a safe haven—now it has become a cage.
Ripley’s desperate attempt to help his friends escape tragedy uncovers a conspiracy that envelops the last refuge of mankind in an ever-tightening net.
The people of Sanctuary have never seen a sunrise.
If Ripley and Felix aren’t prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice, none of them ever will.
Three Days Till Dawn and subsequent novels in the Antiquity’s Gate series explore a version of Earth where a mysterious crystalline structure acts as a gateway between two parallel worlds. The inhabitants on the other side brought a devastating plague to Earth, resulting in the near-annihilation of mankind. The survivors coexist in a protected domed city known as Sanctuary situated in Antarctica.
I wrote this series with the idealistic hope that it could be enjoyed by anyone, which is why it’s a light sci-fi. The focus is the characters and their stories, while the tech and science takes on more of a supporting role. I wanted super sci-fi nerds, like myself, to enjoy the books, but I also wanted people like my grandmother, who is not into sci-fi, to be able to enjoy the books. With post-apocalyptic elements and a mix of conspiracy, mystery, cyberpunk and dystopia with plenty of sarcastic wit, it has a little something for everyone.
Join Ripley and Felix on a grand adventure on the edge of the world!
