Diary of the Displaced – Book 1 – The Journal of James Halldon

Diary of the Displaced is a genre-breaking saga that is part mystery, part scifi, part horror and part fantasy.

Set in a universe where creatures from the depths of Lovecraftian horror come up against blaster and shotgun wielding nomadic wanderers, it’s not like anything you’ve ever read before.

There is a place where nightmares are real. A dark and terrifying place that is hidden from the world we know, by borders that only the most unfortunate of souls will ever cross.

James Halldon woke up in the dark, alone.
No food. No water. No light. Almost no memories of his past.

Things moved in the darkness around him. Things that growled.

And daytime never seemed to come.

“Of all the places I had to end up, it had to be here.”

EON (Chronos Ring #1)

In the far future, mankind lives safe and secure behind the Chronos Ring – an automatic defense system that encircles the area of space occupied by human beings. The Ring keeps out all of humanity’s enemies – in particular, a vicious race of reptilians known as the Parsnaak.

On the outer fringe of human-occupied space is the planet Muse, an entire world dedicated and established as a colossal museum – a storehouse of antiquities and relics from the ancient histories of both men and aliens. There, Ian Lotus, a man with his own mysterious past, has chosen to live in deliberate obscurity, harboring secrets that could reshape mankind’s destiny.

Now, the impossible has happened: the Chronos Ring has been breached – rendered inert – and Lotus finds himself no longer able to hide in the shadows as he becomes the object of a massive interplanetary manhunt. However, his problems go well beyond simply being the most wanted man in the galaxy. There’s also the approaching Parsnaak invasion fleet to deal with, as well as an enigmatic, extra-dimensional being of immense power who, for reasons unknown, wants Lotus dead.
