This post contains details from a novel that isn't out yet. That being said, I will try to keep it to the sort of things you might read on the back cover. Nothing too spoilerific, I promise. :)
If you've read the afterword to The Robinsons' Dark Matter then you already know the title to the upcoming sequel is (tentatively) The Robinsons' Quantum Entanglement. (If you haven't read the book yet, DO NOT read the afterword!)
I haven't written the synopsis yet, but I can share a few details about the story:
- It's a ghost story*
- We'll be seeing plenty of Bryce*
- Victoria gets mixed up with some bad people.
- Quantum entanglement is involved
* Sort of
The story is going to pick up just days after the events in The Robinsons' Dark Matter. We learn that both General Trotter and "Aunt" Susan survive, but are still infected (apparently dormant) and are under house arrest. Susan is inconsolable over what happened while Trotter is obsessed with redemption, actively ignoring rules and safeguards in order to protect his former unit and the world at large from facing another disaster.
Meanwhile Victoria battles depression. She has few friends and when she finally works up the courage to ask Jack Hartzler out, he turns her down. Lonely and in search of somewhere to belong, she finds herself falling in with a group that seems to really like her for who she is. But they have a secret. Nate knows something is up, but can he convince Victoria to listen to him before it's too late, or will she choose her new friends over the rest of humanity?
