The Oceans between Stars is the second book in the Chronicle of the Dark Star — Kevin Emerson’s epic, adventurous, suspenseful, and thought-provoking series that has received multiple starred reviews, has won an Indie Next List selection, and has been called “perfect science fiction” (Tui Sutherland, New York Times bestselling author).
It is Earth year 2223 — but the Earth, along with the entire solar system, is gone. Liam and Phoebe, having barely escaped our exploding sun with their lives, are in stasis for the decade-long journey to the rogue planet Delphi, where they hope to catch up with the rest of the human refugees, find help for their injured parents, and pass along the devastating things they discovered on Mars: that the destruction of our world was no accident, and that someone might still be after them, trying to finish the job.
Phoebe, however, is carrying her own dark secret. One that finds her waking up secretly at various points in their journey, changing their path through space. One that will decide the fate of the human race and many others besides. One that, very soon, she must reveal to Liam, whether he’s ready for the truth or not.Kevin Emerson’s science-fiction epic continues with a bold and terrifying quest into the outer reaches of time and space — one that will change our two heroes, and their friendship, forever.
