Overview

When a thoughtship and its pilot finally reach Avani, the shimmering gem of the western spiral arm, they barely have a chance to marvel at its sapphire forests before they are ambushed by an enemy far beyond their understanding.

In the midst of the attack, a fragment is sliced off of the ship causing them to tumble out of control, down to the planet's surface. An ice-covered continent to the south is the only viable landing site. Lucky for them, what hides beneath may give them the chance to escape before isolation drives them mad.

This short story is a prequel to the fast-paced Transcendental SF novel "The Truth Beyond the Sky." Heavily inspired by ancient mythology and Joseph Campbell's work, this first book kicks off the THE EPIC OF ARAVINDA series, now available in all major ebook stores.

Author. Traveller. Net-diver. As a citizen of Earth, Andrew is primarily interested in growth, not only for himself, but for all. His debut novel, The Truth Beyond the Sky, is the first book in the Epic of Aravinda, an award-nominated transcendental science fiction series that draws inspiration from around the globe, including eastern mythology and channeling. Since its release, the novel has garnered a multitude of glowing reviews, received write-ups on pro reviewer websites, and qualified for an ACX stipend, attracting prime narrator talent for the Audible.com edition of the book, available now. And thanks to reader support, the series continues now with The Island on the Edge of Forever, inspired heavily from Andrew's adventures following the strange trails of the Hawaiʻi jungle.
