Dylan S Hearn was previously featured on Reading Recommendations in Aug. 2014. He’s back now to tell us about the second book in his trilogy.
Dylan Hearn‘s new release is Absent Souls: The Transcendence Trilogy Book 2. It’s the sequel to his novel Second Chance, which was published in January 2014. It’s a thriller set in the near future, so while it’s classed as Science Fiction it’s really a character-led thriller – with a bit of prediction thrown in for fun.
Mick O’Driscoll has a problem. A man has died in the Scrambles, and nothing happens in the Scrambles without his permission, or so he thought. The death spells trouble and O’Driscoll knows it. The question is, who killed the Prime Delegate’s brother on his turf and why?
Set two years after the events of Second Chance, Absent Souls follows the story of four people struggling to deal with events in the present while tormented by events from the past: an Investigator, tortured by the memory of a man he couldn’t find and a crime he was unable solve; a crime lord, forced to live a life he inherited but never truly wanted; a Professor, using academic success to drown out his guilt; and a Global Governance opera-tive, slowly becoming the very thing she’s fighting against.
Forced to work with those they distrust in an effort to uncover the truth, it soon becomes clear that it’s not just their own lives they need to protect, but the very future of humanity that’s at stake.
Dylan S Hearn is a 43-year-old writer from Suffolk, England. A late bloomer who loved writing when younger and has read voraciously all his life, he started writing again a couple of years ago and now spends most of his time trying not to regret those wasted years.
Dylan also reviews books by Indie Authors on his blog, Suffolk Scribblings.

What Dylan is working on now:
I’m working on the third and final part of the trilogy, Genesis Redux. For the first time I have a title before I’ve finished the book which is a novelty for me. I also write frequently in my blog where I like to talk about writing (or mostly about all the important activities which surround the writing process) as well as promote other self-published authors’ works I’ve enjoyed through my Recommended Reads section (and no, I didn’t steal Susan’s title!).
Dylan’s Reading Recommendation:
Since committing to Pay it Forward to other self-published writers by reading more self-published works and recommending those I’ve enjoyed, I’ve discovered many excellent writers.
I loved The Me You See by Shay Ray Stevens, a really great mystery which explores the death of a young woman through the eyes of those who knew her.
I also really enjoyed Yesterday Road by Kevin Brennan, a wonderfully warm book about a man in his latter years who decides to take a road trip, although he’s not sure where he is going or why. Kevin Brennan was previously featured on Reading Recommendations.
If you like Science Fiction, I recently read a great short-story collection called Moondust Memories by Vaughan Stanger, a mixture of pure science fiction and alternate history with each story exploring a specific theme.
