New York, NY, December 2017 – Mark Laporta’s YA SF trilogy, The Changing Hearts of Ixdahan Daherek has been acclaimed both in the mainstream press — Kirkus Reviews called the first outing a “fabulous read” and “an irresistible blend of wonky science and heartfelt storytelling,” Foreword called it “entertaining and fun,” and nationally syndicated radio host Patzi Gil proclaimed it “a wonderful, wonderful read … very, very beautifully written” — as well as the SF blogosphere, where Jodi Scaife of Fanbase Press wrote, “I absolutely adored the depth of Laporta’s world building … the characters within the pages will stay with you after the last pages are turned” and Tay LaRoi of Cheap Reads named Ixdahan to the list Top 10 List for 2016, raving, “In case you haven’t noticed, I adore these books. The wonderful characters, the outlandish conflicts, the strange worlds and aliens, all of it.”
Now this accomplished YA novelist branches out with his first adult space opera, in the first novel of a new series destined to win him new fans and acclaim. Probability Shadow leads you into a new universe, where a critical mineral shortage pits imperious humans against scheming androids, skulking symbiotes and a moralistic caucus of sentient crustaceans. Yet as their battles rage, an ancient evil re-emerges — and foretells the end of all sentient life.
