The Mortal Vestige
Book Three of the Immortal Wake Series
The world writhes as a remorseless terror sweeps across the planet. The age of immortals is drawing to a close and the vestige of humanity lies in tatters.
Jonas, the failed leader of the human resistance, is adrift in a world that rejected him.
Having witnessed the cold cruelty of annihilation, he spent hours in a state of debilitating shock. But now he must venture back to the ruins of civilization in search of hope.
“Wheeler has somehow managed to elevate The Mortal Vestige from just being a science fiction story into a work of art, and the best art will always leave you changed after you’ve experienced it.”
– Ben Ragunton, TG Geeks
“I have enjoyed Mr. Wheeler’s Immortal Wake series and, after the jaw-dropping end of Thursday Midnight, I was on pins and needles to see what unfolded next for Jonas. As I was reading through The Mortal Vestige, I had a creeping feeling of dread and unease.”
– Amazon Reader
“The Mortal Vestige is a wonderful conclusion to an ingeniously written trilogy. I highly recommend this book, and this series.”
– Geoff Habiger, SFF Author
“A heartbreaking yet thoughtful read. His journey is full of both touching moments and tearful ones.”
– S.E. Sasaki, SFF Author
“This was a very thought-provoking end to the series. I shared in every bit of joy and despair that Jonas experienced.”
– Amazon Reader
The Mortal Vestige concludes a very wild ride in my author career. I was utterly unprepared for the success of Transient, and the thought of penning two more novels in a yet-to-be-named series was speculative at best. But now I have reached a point where I cannot imagine the storyline without them. I have dragged this protagonist through hell and back, and I really wanted to witness the end of his journey.
Oddly enough, this book existed as a separate idea before plugging into the Immortal Wake series. Only after finishing Thursday Midnight did I realize how perfectly it melded into the story arch. It caused me to abandon my original idea and pen this version instead. In a very real sense, this book is my first-person descent into madness.
