A brand-new series from James P. Sumner, and a masterpiece in science fiction storytelling, DARKNESS RISES is an epic space opera inspired by Star Wars, The Expanse, and Destiny 2.

In a galaxy on the brink of chaos, a dark secret buried for millennia is about to be uncovered. While empires fight over resources and religious freedoms, a group of pirates navigate the dangerous regions of deep space, unaware they are about to change everything.


James began his writing journey in the summer of 2013, penning and self-publishing his debut thriller, True Conviction. Since then, he has produced multiple bestsellers, including the international bestseller and former Amazon #1 blockbuster hit, A Necessary Kill. He was also won several literary awards for his acclaimed Adrian Hell series.

With over 20 books under his belt, James continues to do what he loves, while also helping other self-published authors on their journey by offering services and support.

His wife (and editor) is waiting for him in New York, along with his wonderful stepdaughter, and his very distinguished cat, Finney.
