Welcome to the creative home of John G. Stevens, author of the Echowake book series.

Book One

Flying through the clouds on the backs of giant air whales, a young man is constantly on the move to avoid a pressing darkness. His dark dreams have always kept him alone, but now he finds himself desired by opposing groups. The Cytech inventors guild wants his talent, and a group of powerful Mystics wants him outright dead. As Trede attempts to find the reason for his affliction, he finds closer friends than he could have imagined and realizes his own place in a much greater conflict.

Some things are better left undiscovered.  Powerful things, dangerous things…  Why is it we chase them with such abandon?
