Book 2 of The Source Series.

An explosive and amusing sequel to fantasy sci-fi novel, The Source: Origins.

Adept brothers Edvon and Kyran have been abducted along with a small group of Overseers, bounty hunters, and others.

Who are their captors? Where are they going? What is beyond the Dominion?

Step onto the flying SPC to unlock the mysteries that fill this action-packed adventure.

A.J. Witt has really pulled off an incredible sequel to the first "The Source" book here. Leaving behind the sole planet of Dominion and the feeling of geographical entrapment that all characters conveyed, this second book transports characters and readers alike to the vast, mysterious universe. New planets, new developments, different cultures, shining characters, feats of courage and feats of subtlety, all fuse together into a highly captivating series of parallel narratives, taking place in multiple worlds simultaneously.


Science fiction as well as realism coexist beautifully in this book. All of the characters have pressing matters of survival and social elevation. The dialogue has been greatly improved if one compares it with the first book of the series. It flows beautifully and it delivers an astonishing feeling of everyday encounters.


All in all, this is truly a book that exceeds expectations, and Witt clearly overdid himself writing it. It is as if this multi-planet narrative was kept like a jack in the box, to be sprung upon the readership in this second book and skyrocket the entire series! By the end, the reader is left with his or her mouth agape, anxiously waiting for the next book of the series to see what comes after.

PROLOGUE

Master Anadar’s Recitations

1 Save yourself, or die before the others.

2 A calm mind always prevails over an indignant one.

3 If you want something, get it.

4 Doubt for only as long as you are willing to waste time.

5 A coin is a coin is a coin.

6 Do not search when there is nothing to be found.

7 If there must be death, then it must, at the very least, have served a purpose.

8 No knowledge is needed to learn.

9 An enemy can only be an enemy by inflicting damage.

10 You survive by keeping your head on your shoulders. 

11 Familiar sounds are always better than strange ones.

12 Thinking is meaningless if action calls.

13 Swing back when you must.

14 Only a fool would assist another without selfish motivation to support that undertaking.

15 If you wish to know, see for yourself.

16 Mystery is a plague when left untreated.

17 If you want to move your way up, someone else has to come down.

18 Something can be great without being perfect.

19 A moment’s reflection can provide for a lucid thought.

20 When you find a goldmine, mine it.

21 Only the brave respond when action calls.

22 If others are doing it, then you should find out why. 

23 A promise is as meaningless as the fools who think they can enforce it.

24 The rescuers shall bathe in the glory of those they have rescued.

25 Never judge a book by its content, only its meaning. 

26 A deep cut does not mean there is none deeper.

27 Before acting, seek the advice of others.

28 The unexplainable can only harm you.

29 Ideas are worthless when hidden within the mind.

30 Without rules, there is no game worth playing.

31 Options are a luxury for those who possess them.

32 A dream is a means to reality.

33 You will be treated the way you have treated others.
