Two Scientists. One from long ago. The other from modern day 2018.
Both on the precipice of greatness.
Both met with disdain, and in one case, branded a witch.

Sir Bernard, a seasoned and trusted scientist, living in the time of King Caesar, is lauded by many… until his invention sparks rage and fear among the people. When they brand him as a witch, practicing dark magic, he makes a daring escape via his time machine.
He finds himself in San Francisco, 2000 years in the future. There, he befriends Kyle, a young, talented physics student, whose brilliance also sparks distrust, and in some cases, maltreatment.

Together, the two scientists are a formidable force, but there are barriers that prevent them from making good use of their scientific theories.
Sir Bernard’s homeland is on the brink of war. To save his people, he must go back in time, but first he’ll need a new, more powerful time machine.
Kyle has struggles of his own. His brain puts him ahead of the class, but he has trepidation about his mother’s legacy. He wants to clear her name and prove that she didn’t intentionally detonate a scientific lab, killing everyone, including herself.

Two scientists from vastly different worlds fight to erase the past. Can they prove their theories are real and can they save lives and reputations, including their own?

More From Jackiem Joyner:

Zarya is only fifteen, but her planet’s fate lies in her hands. Will she stop Gerik and his secret weapon in time to save the people?

Governed by a brutal military, Cydnus is an advanced desert planet with drones and flying killing machines. Buildings that claw high into the sky. Everything is under surveillance and everyone is controlled by this system. It’s a fact, the way of life, and no one dares question it.

That is, until Zarya’s father confronts Gerik, the planet’s sadistic, chief military officer. Immediately, he’s silenced and never heard from again. In a desperate search to find her parents, Zarya uncovers a plot by Gerik to release a lethal weapon against the people, killing half the population. The weaker half with inferior DNA. Using her father’s research and detailed specs of the technology used by the military, she is Cydnus’s only hope.

Equipped with Sochi, her AI-powered flying airboard, and accompanied by her high school friends, Zarya sets out on a journey to find her family, stop Gerik, and save her home from certain destruction.

This is a sizzling science fiction fantasy, complete with imaginative objects, devices, and scientific concepts that make this novel soar – contemporary concepts pushed forward and embellished in time, creating a cinematic tale well worth following”, Grady Harp, San Francisco Review of Books
