About the Book

Beyond the remnants of Earth lie many worlds, connected by pathways forgotten and invisible. They were left by the gods and have been found by Flynn.

A confidence man. A liar. A monster. Flynn has seen himself for what he really is and has resolved to pay for everything. Even if it means spending the rest of his days locked in Civilis, a tower prison for society's unwanted - "half-humans" gifted by the fallout of nuclear holocaust centuries past.

Jean, a prisoner in the neighboring cell, has different ideas and despite himself, Flynn finds himself joining her daring escape. After rescuing her friend Mack, the three flee Civilis as Flynn pieces together the hours before his capture and finds himself drawn to an abandoned facility where a rift to another world opens at his nearing.

Together they will venture farther beyond the stars than humanity ever imagined, find others like them that will never belong, and tangle with forces both ancient and immortal. They stand alone, hated and scorned - and the last hope of making things right in a cosmos gone terribly wrong.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "This book though, is a hidden gem. [...] it has the potential to be absolutely epic. Reminds me a lot of the Steven Erikson "Malazan" books, but with a toned down level of violence and darkness. Well written with a twisting and evolving plot. There is action, emotion, and an obvious theme of redemption, but I'm picking up a sense that the overarching story will be much more complex. I look forward to the next book/books. I really hope this author lives up to the potential this novel hints at. " - Say What (Amazon)

About the Author

Author Lucas Aubrey Paynter
Author Lucas Aubrey Paynter
Lucas Aubrey Paynter holds a Creative Writing degree from California State University Northridge--which looks really good when one talks about how they want to write for a living.

A fan of engaging storytelling in any medium, he spent years developing the worlds, characters and conflicts that Flynn and his company encounter, before settling at his desk and writing Outcasts of the Worlds, the first part of a much larger tale to come.

Currently residing with his wife in Burbank, California, Lucas enjoys reading in a variety of formats, potentially over-analyzing character motivations and arcs, and the occasional good, stiff drink.
