Tor books have very generously agreed to provide a copy of all 6 books in the series - yes that's right all 6 books - to one lucky winner. Doesn't that just get you all excited?
We were lucky enough to nab Dom and get him to answer a couple of questions for us.
Curlypow, the original idea was based on this question: How would the best and the brightest of Earth's teenagers handle the staggering pressure of saving the human race? I wanted to tell a story of young people who learn to rely on themselves and each other in the face of catastrophe. In the process, they leave behind their families, their friends, and their homes. They're left to fend for themselves with no adults around. I was intrigued by how they would grow and change in that scenario.
2. What are your thoughts on bringing this extensive series to a close?
It's bittersweet, to say the least. These characters have been an important part of my life for many years, and it was hard to let them go. I've already had dozens of questions from listeners asking if there's any chance of a future Galahad novel - sort of a "what happened later?" story - and all I can say it...we'll see. For now, I couldn't be happier with the way the series draws to a close. I think The Galahad Legacy ends exactly the way it needs to, with some of the story lines wrapped up, but others left with question marks. I believe that's how it would be in real life, too.
Thank you Dom for sharing your thoughts with us today. We also have an excerpt from The Galahad Legacy to whet your appetite:
The door opened and Gap strolled in. Triana couldn’t decipher the look on his face, which seemed perched somewhere between agitation and fatigue. He approached her and she slowly rose to her feet. They exchanged an awkward gaze before embracing in a tentative and equally-awkward hug.
“Glad to see you’re in one piece,” Gap said, moving across the room to collect a cup of water. “Feeling okay?”
“For the most part,” she said. “Physically I’m fine. My head’s still spinning from everything, but I’m getting readjusted. You got my note last night?”
