Aryx is dying.
A powerful thaumaturgist has disappeared.

While Aryx conceals his illness from Sebastian, the hunt for the missing thaumaturgist takes them across the galaxy, but they are soon embroiled in an age-old conspiracy. Espionage may be the key to releasing the ITF’s grip on the galaxy; even with Karan and Monica’s help, breaking into an ITF-controlled installation is no simple feat.

With Sebastian unaware that Aryx’s health is in rapid decline, things may be about to take a turn for the worse.


Afterglow is the long-awaited sequel to Synthesis:Weave, and was released on 1st of March 2019, to coincide with International Wheelchair Day.


A fantastic follow-up to Synthesis:Weave, and a real rollercoaster, where the Disabled hero becomes even more central to the action. Now I’m desperate for the final book in the series!

Heck, that was a wild ride! Afterglow has so many twists and turns, I was on the edge of my seat. I had to put it down when it started interfering with my heart rate readings in hospital.

For me, Afterglow reminds me of the pureness of true friendships and the endurance that each of us can find within ourselves. I get totally lost in the Synthesis Weave and the next instalment can’t come soon enough!

Afterglow is now available to buy in all formats, both digital and physical.
