    Author, J.M. Salyards is pleased to announce the release of his new science ficion/fantasy series, The Next Man. The first book, Shadow of the Last Men was released in late 2013.

    One harrowed soul emerges from the bleak Outlands to deliver his people from their technocratic overlords, the Last Men. Harrow, a guided missile of a man, will go to any lengths to exact his vengeance. Clinging to his humanity by fraying threads, he prepares to die wreaking havoc for his cause.

    But Harrow discovers allies who will change the course of his life—Quintain, a teenage master of the metaphysical on his own quest for justice, and Alouine Morningstar, an outlawed, genetically perfected princess of the Last Men. As wills and fists collide, the unwilling hero must choose between a future beyond his victory, or death as his only chance for peace.
