2287 A.D. follows the lives of Ashlyn Parker and Steven Sherrah, the man who is in command of Earth's last surviving starship. He has been struggling to keep the handful of Earth's survivors alive, hiding from the most vicious and powerful enemy humanity has ever known, an enemy that is relentless in his determination to see that every last human is killed.

His life is turned upside down as Ashlyn, a woman genetically engineered to be mentally and physically perfect - the next step in humanity's evolution, awakens from stasis. For her protection, she had been cryogenically frozen when Earth was attacked. Her return is brutal, for she awakens fifteen years later into a post-apocalyptic Earth to find that everyone she had known before is gone, the world destroyed.

From the first moment that her distress signal is received and Steven rescues Ashlyn, his heart is inexplicably drawn to her, as she is to him. Her presence challenges his loyalty to those whom he loves and all that he has ever known. For within Ashlyn, she holds the secret to a shared past that he had never known existed. A past which will take them back in time almost 7,000 years, where they will journey through strange new worlds, changing the history of the universe for all time, and our understanding of everything as we know it.

2288 A.D. is the 2nd book of the #1 BEST SELLING, 'The Ashlyn Chronicles' series. The first novel 2287 A.D., is a Kindle ALL-STAR (TOP 100 AMAZON BOOK) that has SOLD over 100,000 copies in its first year.

-
And while 2288 A.D. can be read as a stand alone novel, we strongly, repeat STRONGLY recommend you first read Book 1, 2287 A.D. It is where the characters are first introduced and there is much to be learned about the far reaching arc of the story line and why they make the choices they do.
-
*PLEASE NOTE: All books in the series contain sensual content and playful adult banter AND are set in 'alien uplift' version of creation. We recommend that people with strong religious beliefs or those that are offended by adult content between consenting adults should not buy this book.
-
AND NOW, THE FUN STUFF (SYNOPSIS):
Without wanting to give away spoilers...2288 A.D. starts where the first novel ends. It will take Ashlyn and Steven back in time almost 7,000 years. This is where the secret that Ashlyn holds, is revealed. It will lead them on an incredible journey of time travel through strange new worlds, against an evil darkness that threatens to erase their future and all mankind from existence.
-
Like 2287 A.D., ... 2288 A.D. is packed full of action and adventure. Personally, we hate a 3 page description of how a star-drive engine operates. We hope that you too will enjoy a story that moves quickly.

Synopsis

Book 2 of the Realm of Dica series.

An epic mystery set within the exquisitely realised ‘created-world’ realm of Dica. At its heart is a story spanning the millennia – from ancient myth and legend to the realm’s turbulent present – all seen through the intimate vision of its idiosyncratic characters. These are folk who’ll become as real to you as friends or family, and whose revealing and somehow contemporary story will stay with you for ever more.
This is the kind of fantasy you might have expected to have come from the pen of Mervyn Peake, peopled with fully fleshed out characters reminiscent of those so joyously created by Terry Pratchett. The story at times, though, may seem to owe more to CS Lewis as it weaves its way through a rich, deep and multi-threaded tapestry of a plot that would have pleased the science fiction master Olaf Stapledon. And of course, there’s one character who mustn’t be overlooked, and that’s Dica itself – so real, immediate and all-embracing that you could be forgiven for thinking it had sprung from JRR Tolkien’s own hand.

Don’t be misled, though, for this series is entirely Clive S. Johnson – the author, the poet, the artist. Unique, inventive, idiosyncratic and thought provoking, this series will push you away from the shores of the everyday and into a delightful voyage of discovery. You will find wonder, surprise, dry humour and some gritty truths as you’re inexorably drawn into the pure joy of such a rich, poetic and deep tale, so well and beautifully told.

When the castle realm of Dica again draws close to its final days, the ancient power long placed at its heart appears to be giving way to a new era, as the knowledge of the old founding fathers is methodically unearthed. It brings about a fresh mechanicking world, one seemingly bright with hope. All it lacks, to exploit these riches to the full, is knowledge long ago secreted to a distant colony, a place of safekeeping beyond the Gray Mountains. Travel with an oddly assorted party of both familiar and new wayfarers as they seek out that knowledge, as they strive to return the old power, but in service to a new future. Journey also into mystery and intrigue, as those familiar characters discover much more besides.

This is the second book in the Dica Series, a faster paced pursuit of the weird and wonderful 'created-world' introduced in Leiyatel’s Embrace. Although still a world wrought with mystery, a world of the unexpected, a world of vast vistas and intimate observations, it is also a compelling tale, a journey of individual journeys, all made beyond the vast confines of Dica. At times lyrical, the rich prose will carry you into a totally fresh yet seemingly familiar place and time, one that will stay with you forever.

The ancient engers knew it as a theoretical entity, one so remotely implausible that the idea only survived in an obscure verse. How could an ages-old poem give rise to the reality of the days of the Cold Angel, days that threaten the realm’s very future? And why does a woman’s determination to do right by her sister put her at the heart of a mystery, one that threatens to destroy the only love that sister has ever known?

Someone’s lost memories lead her to a strange meeting with a man in an even stranger tower, one that pricked star holes in the sky until but a few days before. What of it now, though, and its keeper’s determination to put things right at all costs? How is she to deal with the painful dilemma he draws her towards - when she’s asked to weigh the love of her sister against a duty to save the realm?

With the ancient castle realm of Dica seemingly set upon a bright path into a brave new mechanicking future, flaws become evident, flaws needing time to put right. The old knowledge cannot be taken up fast enough to offset the loss of the ancient power of Leiyatel, and so plans are set in motion that aren’t to everyone’s liking. Follow both familiar and new characters, all embroiled in their own intrigue and deceit, as they chase often conflicting ends, each convinced they know what’s right for the realm

This is the third book in the Dica Series, one that steps out smartly on the road to revelation, uncovering all about the weird and wonderful 'created-world' introduced in Leiyatel’s Embrace. By it, a more compelling story develops, one that reaches out far further than even the vast confines of Dica. Still at times lyrical and rich, the prose now promises to carry you beyond the weird and wonderful, beyond the idiosyncratic and idiotic, into an understanding that will truly stay with you for the rest of time.

On the day Prescinda leaves the fishing village of Grayden, and her marriage to a man she’s never loved, her return to the old family home of Blisteraising Farm is interrupted. A surprise visit by Nephril brings with it a strange request that he seems reluctant to explain.

“I know thou hath heard talk of a distant city,” was how he broached it, which seemed more benign than his last request that she "scare someone almost to death". This time she was asked to help Falmeard spy out a rare sight, but one which could very well foretell the end of the realm of Dica, and thereby of existence itself.

There begins a most strange journey that turns into a race to a discovery that should never have been possible. What finally comes to light places Dica and its people in their true perspective, and reveals an enemy within, an enemy they must defeat.

But even if Prescinda and her friends succeed, has Dica already been taken too far awry for the damage to be undone? Can they find a way to bring the realm back onto the path to a safe new future, and so keep true to the artist’s eye?
