The Epherium Chronicles: Echoes Chapter 1

The Epherium Chronicles series continues with the third installment, Echoes.

Book three of The Epherium Chronicles

The battle for Cygni colony may be over, but for Captain James Hood and the crew of the EDF Armstrong, the battle for humanity's future has just begun. Hood's defense of the remote outpost against the Cilik'ti aliens was magnificent, but without the timely help of an unlikely ally—a splinter tribe of humanity's bitter enemies—the colony would have been lost and the Armstrong destroyed.

An uneasy peace has prevailed ever since. But as the humans prepare for a crucial meeting, a desperately needed Earth supply convoy is attacked under mysterious circumstances, with the lead escort cruiser's captain disappearing even more mysteriously.

The fate of all of Earth's new colonies hangs in the balance, and Hood is charged with protecting them against growing threats from all sides. When rebellion and unrest challenge the very leadership of the Earth Defense Forces, Hood may need to go it alone…and make the ultimate sacrifice.


Here is the first chapter for Echoes which will be released on March 30, 2015.

Galadriel: I am not alone

IGN recently released this extended clip from the upcoming Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies movie.  This series of events covers the White Council's assault on Dol Goldur and how Gandalf is rescued.  Since this story line comes from The Unfinished Tales, I wasn't sure how well it would be represented in the overall Hobbit story, but Mr. Jackson has definitely given us something to look forward to.  Take a look.


The Fond Fairwell from Middle Earth

Peter Jackson asked Billy Boyd (LOTR's Pippin) to compose a soundtrack for a final song to be added to the last of the Hobbit movies, but they created a nice collage of images and clips from all the movies.  This probably will be the last Middle Earth movie Mr. Jackson makes. Perhaps, there could be another that touches on the Silmarillion, but now we just have to wait.  I remember we had the same discussions about there ever being a Hobbit movie, let alone a trilogy.  Keep your fingers crossed.

Here is the video.
