This is the official page for my second novel, This Falling Eden. I've split this book into a trilogy: This Falling Eden, This Falling Sea, and This Falling Tower. Their Rough Drafts were completed in 2018 and Eden has been edited into its official First Draft, which is now available to test readers.
Hundreds of years after a global catastrophe known as "The Time of Forgetting" halted mankind's technological progress, a new army has risen from the ashes, bent on reuniting the scattered peoples of the Earth. As villagers in the world's most remote mountains flee to their last fortified city, Rai Ver While, one tells of a distant ally that could not be conquered by the ancestors' technology. With their home falling under siege, a group of defenders escape to journey across the conquered Earth and find out if the City of Falling Water is real, and whether their people's salvation lies within it.
This Falling Eden is a futuristic twist on the Tower of Babel, set in an Edenic world where it's said Noah talked God out of flooding the Earth. In the ages to come, as mankind's technology passed beyond matter replication, the power of speech became the power to create and destroy, to dominate one another, and to fashion themselves into gods. All this had been wiped out in a day, lost in the madness of the Time of Forgetting, until one of their descendants found the key to the ancestors' language, and the power to speak destruction on the Earth. Can Rai Ver While escape his power?
