Beacon: Book 2 in the Ronos Trilogy 
Now that Mac Narrad knows the truth about the war he knows there is little chance of survival, unless he gets to Ronos. Mac must lead those he can trust to Ronos and keep his newfound power out of General Zinger’s hands while trying to save his friend Lynn Ryder who he was forced to leave behind.

Fighting against an enemy even more duplicitous than he ever thought Mac must escape the front line of the war, search for allies to go to Ronos, and try to figure out where Janelle Stewart has been taken. Humanity is close to extinction. Mac knows how to even the odds but will he be able to make it in time?

Beacon is a well-written book with an intriguing plot, an inspiring hero, and interesting characters. The author, Tyler Rudd Hall, is a skilled story-teller with a very creative mind and a gift for keeping the reader engaged with his stories.”

Beacon: Book 2 in the Ronos Trilogy
I have been doing everything I can to make sure I didn’t spoil the story before it came out. There were so many times while writing this book that I wanted to tell you what happened to Lynn, what happens when the aliens get to Ronos, how Mac plans to find Janelle, or even what the new story line is (I’m going through the same thing right now with book 3. Must. Keep. The. Secret.). In retrospect I guess I could have given up a few secrets because there are so many twists and surprises that even knowing one of them would have still kept you guys on the edge of your seat.

Beacon was a very different experience from Catalyst. I now know the pain of trying to write an exciting middle part of a trilogy. In the first book it is way easier to rewrite your way out of a problem. In the second book you have to write your way out without contradicting anything you did in the first book. Which means you have to remember everything you wrote in the first book. That’s hard for me because I have the memory of … something that doesn’t remember things very well. So far for the third book any problems can be solved by killing one of the characters. Heads up, there are a lot of problems.

I am so happy with the final results of this book. The end is awesome. Like Catalyst I solved the big question of the book but the answer leaves even more complications than finding out if the war is real or not. It wouldn’t be any fun if everything went right for Mac and Lynn.

After You’re Done Reading
When you are finished reading I would love to know what you thought of Beacon. It makes my day when I hear that someone read my book. Bad or good I love to hear from people who read Catalyst or Beacon.

If you have a few free seconds you could even write a review for it on Goodreads or whichever website you bought it from. That kind of stuff not only makes me happy but it helps get the word out about how entertaining these books are and helps to sell more (The goal being one day to spend all my working hours noveling instead of this silly school business).

Thanks for reading.

I’ll get back to book 3. There are wars to fight.
