The 5th Timeline

Series: Standalone Novel
Status: Expected Spring 2022

“Good morning. We are now in the fifth timeline.”

That’s the message on Ashara’s comm when she wakes up, ten days before the end of the world.

“Based on your performance in the previous timeline, you have been assigned to the Ethereal task force.”

She shouldn’t be here. Just yesterday, she was classified as unskilled. The Council has rewound time four times since then, and nothing is how it was supposed to be. Now, she’s on a team of human ether manipulators led by Loken, a boy who dumped her. If they don’t stop the Mages from invading their homeland, everything could end.

Ashara is not trained to fight them. She’s not trained for anything.

“Please report to the Council building immediately.”

Can Ashara and Loken set their differences aside to save the world? If they fail, the Council can’t keep rewinding time forever. Can it?

The 5th Timeline is an standalone science fantasy novel originally published under the title ECHO.

“Proving character-driven science fiction is not an oxymoron, [main character] Ashara Vinn pulls readers into her world on page one and never lets go … This world has depth, mirroring the memorable characters who populate it.”

—Kirkus Reviews, about ECHO, the original title of this book
