Description of this Book

Drew Williams continues the Universe After series with A Chain Across the Dawn, an epic space opera chase across the galaxy with witty banter, fantastical planets, and a seemingly unbeatable foe. The only thing more fun than a bonkers space battle is a whole book packed with bonkers space battles. Come for the exploding spaceships, stay for the intriguing universe. --Becky Chambers, on The Stars Now Unclaimed It's been three years since Esa left her backwater planet to join the ranks of the Justified. Together, she and fellow agent Jane Kamali have been traveling across the known universe, searching for children who share Esa's supernatural gifts. On a visit to a particularly remote planet, they learn that they're not the only ones searching for gifted children. They find themselves on the tail of a mysterious being with impossible powers who will stop at nothing to get his hands on the very children that Esa and Jane are trying to save. With their latest recruit in tow--a young Wulf boy named Sho--Esa and Jane must track their strange foe across the galaxy in search of answers. But the more they learn, the clearer it becomes--their enemy may be harder to defeat than they ever could have imagined.

Author's Bio

DREW WILLIAMS has been a bookseller in Birmingham, Alabama since he was sixteen years old, when he got the job because he came in looking for work on a day when someone else had just quit. Outside of arguing with his coworkers about whether Moby Dick is brilliant (nope) or terrible (that one), his favorite part of the job is discovering new authors and sharing them with his customers. Drew is the author of The Universe After novels (The Stars Now Unclaimed, A Chain Across the Dawn).
