An invasion threat. A guardian in peril. A seventeen-year-old boy to save them all…even as he questions his origins and sanity.
All Kallum wants is a peaceful life in Levitor city with the girl of his dreams. He has life all planned out. But after a simulation test unexpectedly leaves him reeling, normal takes a whole different meaning. He loses his guardian and fears he’s turning into his worst nightmare—a Crazy.
Worse than all of this? He finds he’s the cause of the fracture in the aetherium, a stone of vast energy that powers the dome protecting Levitor. Now the threat of invasion from the savages outside looms.
What is this aetherium stone bestowed by the Aeternas, an alien race? Who are they? Why did they give the stone in the first place? Are they so benevolent? Probably not. No Levitorian citizens dare to question.
To top it all, the Aeternas are now out to get him. The Shadowers, Levitor’s rulers, are more than happy to deliver him on a plate.
It’s up to Kallum to fix the aetherium and save the city. He will have to choose where he belongs and what is really worth sacrificing for the greater good.
Will he have the courage to do what must be done?

Kris grew up reading classic novels to her mother. From these moments, she became fascinated with books and words. It was always the gritty worlds and the characters’ growth that drew her in, and she often found herself engrossed in young adult science fiction, dystopian, and fantasy.
A lifelong daydreamer, she finally decided to put down her dreams onto paper. She tried to write straight science fiction and then straight fantasy, but both never clicked. So now she creates worlds just a tad bit different from ours – a blend of the futuristic with a touch of the fantastic. Like so, Strands of Time, her debut novel and the first book in the Aeterna Chronicles, was born.
Kris holds a degree in psychology and lives in rural Ontario, Canada, with her husband and children. She welcomes your thoughts on her book. Connect with her on her website krisruhler.com
