Earth’s End Trilogy – Perhaps More Action, Excitement, Romance, Thrills, and Adventure Than You Can Stand

The Earth's End Trilogy

The Earth’s End Trilogy delivers on its promise––this is a series you’ll remember far after you turn the last page.

  • In The Angel & the Brown-Eyed Boy, join , exquisite dancer who’s from anther world, and Jeremy, the sixteen year old tech geek with the skills to save the world––if he can save himself.
  • Lady Grace & the War for a New World is just that, how the survivors of nuclear Armageddon fight hideously mutated monsters and learn to survive in their New World. Nuclear war has blasted them back to the stone age.
  • The Headman & the Assassin is a love story for the ages, taking place in a bomb shelter 300′ beneath the surface of the earth. Radiation seals the people  of the village in the shelter forever. A love for the ages blossoms improbably in the worst place of all.

Earth’s End consists of three print and eBooks and a “boxed set” containing all the eBooks. It’s still in production and will be available on Amazon in August. While you’re waiting, look at the spectacular video. It’s high resolution, so you may have to let it play once to buffer.

5 STARS! Should be a movie! Darlene of Reno NV
“This was an excellent read. I felt like I was watching a movie, drawn in completely. The world and characters were so real I could smell it. . .  Now I will have to go read other books by Sandy Nathan. Oh, and I hope someone decides to make this book into a movie. That would be awesome!”


Lady Grace

Lady Grace: A Thrilling Adventure Wrapped in the Embrace of Epic Love

Lady Grace: A Thrilling Adventure Wrapped in the Embrace of Epic Love Tales from Earth’s End Saga, Book 2.

Finalist, 2012 Indie Excellence Awards, Visionary Fiction

Here’s a review that says it all:

FIVE STARS! A MODERN SCI-FI MASTERPIECE Lady Grace was first-rate science fiction and one of the most absorbing page-turners of that genre that I’ve read in years. Author Sandy Nathan exhibits the imagination of Ray Bradbury combined with the whimsicalness of Douglas Adams. That’s high praise, but it’s warranted. The story includes so much action; tense, suspenseful drama; and two charming love stories that it’s irresistible.” J. Chambers, Amazon Top 50 Reviewer (#27 at this writing)

 

 

 

Sam & Emily: A Lovestory from the Underground

Sam & Emily: A Love Story from the Underground

 

Sam & Emily: A Love Story from the Underground Tales from Earth’s End Saga, Book 3. The book is a love story; it focuses on a relationship and has a different feeling than the other two books. This is my favorite book. Here’s a review:

5 stars out of 5! A gripping story of life after the world ends . . . fascinating and reminiscent of Stephen King’s epic masterpiece – The Stand.  Sam & Emily is by far my favorite . . . in the series.  It will leave you thinking well after turning the last page.
Todd A. Fonseca, bestselling author of The Time Cavern

Out of the ballpark! It’s a terrific story with wonderful characters – both the good guys and the bad guys – in all kinds of wild situations.
… Prepare yourself for a wild ride. And give thanks that there are Sandy Nathan books already in print and even more on their way.
Laren Bright   Emmy-nominated television writer

 

Tales from Earth's End: The Complete Set

Some info about the Tales from Earth’s End Saga from author Sandy Nathan:

  • I wrote the books of the Saga to be free-standing. I wanted a reader to be able to read any of them and understand what was going on. I’ve had two types of feedback. One reviewer said that he felt sufficient backstory existed in the earlier books to let the reader feel comfortable reading later books. Another reviewer said, “Read them in order.” Which is cool, because you have the opportunity to read all three for a pittance.a
  • A heads up–I’d give the books of the Tales from Earth’s End Saga an R rating if they were movies. They contain violence, strong language, and sexual situations. I’m a grandmother, but I don’t write like one. I don’t go over the top, either. The books are about the end of the world, a police state and people fighting for survival. Despite that, they’re quite spiritual and uplifting, not to mention really romantic.

 

THE BIG NEWS: Tales from Earth’s End: The Complete Series Boxed Set  A giant eBook containing all three books is in production!

Numenon Cover

Numenon: A Tale of Mysticism & Money. Accidental sci-fi.

I never thought I was writing fantasy or science fiction. When I wrote Numenon, a book about the richest man in the world meeting a great Native American shaman, I thought the more spectacular bits were write-ups of my meditation experiences. Those who meditate know that visions with lights and Hollywood-type special effects are normal.

Much to my surprise, when the reviews started coming in,  Numenon was reviewed as fantasy. Well, wait a minute! I was aiming at literary fiction.

When I wrote The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy, I realized I’d crossed a line. A story set in a pre-Apocalyptic world some two hundred years in the future whose title refers to an angelic extraterrestrial is definitely sci-fi. Or fantasy.

Not only had I crossed a line, I liked it. I started reading science fiction and fantasy and found that the really good stuff was as emotionally/personally engaging as literary fiction. Not only that,  it was FUN!

I’ve decided to devote space on Your Shelf Life to blog articles about science fiction, fantasy, and speculative fiction, as well as writing by the authors of the above. And reviews. I already post reviews on Your Shelf Life. Now I’ll be doing them more often, and inviting guest reviewers to pitch in.

For your edification, I will now attempt to add the SF Review Blogs List, so you’ll be able to get in touch with pretty near any SF/Fantasy Blog you want. Including mine.
