Overview

The newest addition from the author that brought you the 'Lodestone Series', The Arc of the Universe is sure to delight old fans, and convert new ones alike.

The Agantzane-masters of a vast interstellar alliance known as the Consensus. Who are they? Where do they come from?

Together with his re-animated son, Conor, Regan Quinn resumes his epic journey, outwitting enemies and forging alliances with enigmatic races before finally coming face to face with the elusive Agantzane. At stake-the future of Humanity!

"The Arc of the Universe is fast-paced, full of action and adventure, and presents a lot of very interesting ideas; particularly in regard to politics and morals.

"The book is well laced with uniquely described creatures, and in-depth, satisfying explanations of the politics and science at work within the book's universe.

"With political machinations every bit as complex and robust as one might find in Game of Thrones, this book deserves a careful read to absorb the details.
"Protagonist Quinn, lone human navigating the complex politics and alien cultures of the worlds-spanning Consensus, constantly has his assumptions challenged as he tries to understand what motivates members of many different species.
"Book two of The Arc of the Universe is a mosaic of secret plots and the very open consequences that result. It's the kind of book that, once finished, must be digested uninterrupted for best results. Take the time: this book is worth the investment."
Terence P Ward, Allbooks Review
"The storyline surpassed my initial expectations. I was expecting it to be of high quality and it was but it was a gripping story that constantly makes you question. It has multiple layers and utilises alien characters effortless so that they add to the rich fabric of the story-line.
"It was no surprise that Quinn emerges as a greater hero in this book. He's grown substantially and feels just as real, if not more, in this novel. The strength of this character is that he regularly experiences all the emotions, the doubts and fears of any real person and this makes him a strong character who keeps the reader interested."

"Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. Those who read it will definitely wish to read the next book on the strength of this one."

Annette Young, The Creative Competitor

"The Arc of the Universe is fast-paced, full of action and adventure, and presents a lot of very interesting ideas; particularly in regard to politics and morals.

"The book is well laced with uniquely described creatures, and in-depth, satisfying explanations of the politics and science at work within the book's universe.

About the Author

"Mark Whiteway is a gifted storyteller who knows how to take his readers to an amazing new world", one where "the technology is every bit as credible as it is fantastic". So say critics and hundreds of verified independent reviewers about the relatively new, yet stellar sci-fi author writing out of rural West Sussex, England (near the former home of H.G. Wells, on a side note).


Author of the critically-acclaimed 'Lodestone Series', Mark Whiteway has enchanted fans over his 6-part epic, with his "gifts going far beyond creating alien landscapes and imaginative technology. His complex characters and rich plots continue to fascinate long after the properties of lodestone have settled into the background."

"Writing SciFi has been a long held ambition of mine. As a kid, I read everything - H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Robert Heinlein, etc., etc. At twelve years old, I wrote a novella. (I still have it, hand-written in a huge ledger). It was about our sun going nova, and the resulting breakdown of society, as told through the eyes of three boys. It had a pretty surreal ending."


"Following that, life intervened, and it was only in April '09 that I determined that I wanted to get back to writing. I had had several ideas running around in my head for some time, of which the Lodestone concept was probably the strongest. As I began to develop the story, it rapidly became clear that there was no way I was going to be able to cover it all in a single book, and so the Lodestone Series was born."
