Gela’s Ring is the sequel to Dark Eden. Currently a work in progress, it will be published initially as a serial, over twelve months from Easter 2013 in the new on-line magazine Aethernet. It will be published by Corvus in book form in 2014,
The book is set some two centuries after the events in Dark Eden, and follows Starlight Brooking, a young woman from a small island community founded by Jeff Redlantern, as she encounters the new, powerful, and mutually hostile societies – followers of John Redlantern and followers of David Redlantern – that came into being after the break-up of the original human community in Circle Valley that had called itself simply Family.
At the centre of events is the ring from Earth that was given by her parents to Angela Young - Gela – the woman from whom everyone in Eden is descended, the mother of them all.
