Release Day Blitz plus Exclusive Excerpt - Lander (Oberon Cycle 2) by J. Scott Coatsworth

Lander


J. Scott Coatsworth has a new MM Sci Fi book out:


Sometimes the world needs saving twice.


In the sequel to the Rainbow-Award-winning Skythane, Xander and Jameson thought they’d fulfilled their destiny when they brought the worlds of Oberon and Titania back together, but their short-lived moment of triumph is over.


Reunification has thrown the world into chaos. A great storm ravaged Xander's kingdom of Gaelan, leaving the winged skythane people struggling to survive. Their old enemy, Obercorp, is biding its time, waiting to strike. And to the north, a dangerous new adversary gathers strength, while an unexpected ally awaits them.


In the midst of it all, Xander’s ex Alix returns, and Xander and Jameson discover that their love for each other may have been drug-induced.


Are they truly destined for each other, or is what they feel concocted? And can they face an even greater challenge when their world needs them most?


The Oberon Cycle: Book Two


About the Oberon Cycle:


Xander is a skythane man whose wings have always been a liability on the lander-dominated half world of Oberon.


Jameson is a lander who has been sent to Oberon to find out why the supply of the psycho-amoratic drug pith has dropped off.


What neither knows is that they have a shared destiny that will change the two of them - and all of Oberon - forever.

Exclusive Excerpt from Lander



Xander stared out into the early morning sky. The rain had finally ended, leaving behind a muddy, sodden mess of downed trees and other debris. The clouds seemed to be on their way to breaking up.
“You sure you’re ready?” he asked over his shoulder.
“I’ll be all right.” Jameson was lacing up his shirt. Xander turned and leaned against the cavern wall to enjoy the show.
The golden wings suited Jameson. He wasn’t muscle-bound, just lithe and beautiful, his red hair adding fire to the mix.
“What are you looking at?” Jameson asked, sounding annoyed.
“Just appreciating the view.”
“I’m a mess. I can’t wait to get back to Gaelan and get a bath.”
Jameson had really taken to the whole water bath thing. Xander had to admit, they were much more satisfying than ionic showers. But there were a lot more things waiting for them there than just getting clean—issues that urgently needed their attention.
They’d search for Quince and the others first. He hoped they’d all made it to safety.
Jameson finished getting dressed and gave him a quick peck on the cheek. “Ready if you are.”
Xander nodded. One of the statues had collapsed across the cavern entrance. The featureless head stared up at him as he climbed over the rubble. He wondered what its face had looked like, and who or what had carved it. He breathed in the air. It was fresh and clean. The clouds were breaking up, and Titania’s red sun was starting to peek through.
That begged the question. With the world back together again, Quince had told them they were now on Erro, but where had that name come from? Had the planet had another name of its own long ago, before it had been split, given to it by whatever had lived here then?
Jameson joined him, whistling at the sight below. The valley was half-full of muddy water, slowly draining out through a massive logjam. “Gaelan must be in trouble….”
Xander nodded. “Much of the city is built up against the cliffs, and the House of the Moon is strong and on high ground. But there will be flooding. We should go.”
He launched himself into the sky and Jameson followed, climbing an updraft behind him. From above, the destruction was even more evident. No one had lived there, but he despaired of finding Quince and the others under all that debris. If they were still alive.
They had to be. He refused to think otherwise. They hadn’t come this far to lose her now. They would need her knowledge and her iron will in the days to come, while they figured out what to do next.
Oberon City lay in wait for them, the Slander and OberCorp like twin spiders who would eventually come to hunt the skythane, to take control of both Errian and Gaelan. The occupation of Gaelan had shown that. They were likely momentarily stunned by the shift, but that wouldn’t incapacitate them for long.
Someone there already knew about Titania—that was evident from the occupation force. He had to get home and prepare Gaelan to fight once again.
He followed an updraft, circling around a few more times, hoping to see some sign of their friends. “Maybe they’ve already started home.” Funny, when had he begun to think of Gaelan as home?
“Maybe so. But I would have thought they’d be out searching for us too…. Xander, look!” Jameson pointed at a spot along the cliff side not far from the cavern entrance, which was now just a patch of black far below.
There was movement and a flash of color. “I see it.” He fell into a dive, the wind whistling past his wings, tucked against his back. Quince. It had to be Quince. Please let it be Quince.






Author Bio


Scott



Scott lives between the here and now and the what could be. Indoctrinated into fantasy and sci fi by his mother at the tender age of nine, he devoured her library. But as he grew up, he wondered where the people like him were.



He decided it was time to create the kinds of stories he couldn’t find at Waldenbooks. If there weren’t gay characters in his favorite genres, he would remake them to his own ends.


His friends say Scott’s brain works a little differently – he sees relationships between things that others miss, and gets more done in a day than most folks manage in a week. He seeks to transform traditional sci fi, fantasy, and contemporary worlds into something unexpected.


He runs Queer Sci Fi and QueeRomance Ink with his husband Mark, sites that bring queer people together to promote and celebrate fiction that reflects their own reality.
