Gail Daley Talks About Her New Series

EACH COLONY WAS DESIGNED BY A DIFFERENT SOCIETY. EQUALLY FORBIDDEN BY EARTH’S GOVERNMENTS AND THE INDUSTRIAL GIANTS WHO CONTROL ACCESS TO THE PORTALS TOOFF WORLD COLONIES--THEY SURVIVE UNDER THE VERY NOSES OF THOSE WHO WOULD DESTROY THEM…

Outlawed Colonies Release Dates

I had to rearrange the titles in my Outlawed Colony series. If you’re reading the books the sequence should be Game Theory, Heirs of Avalon, then Apex Predator. It just makes more sense. 

Not all authors are this picky about the sequences of the tales they’ve tied together…but I know how aggravated it makes me because one of my favorite authors has a bunch of book trilogies set in different 3 time periods and she always starts in the middle, bounces back to the Victorian era and then to the future. 

It did mean I had to re-do the covers to show the correct series numbers and release dates. Fortunately, Game Theory is finished so the release date for book 1 of June 30th works fine.  I might move Avalon’s release date from Sept 30th to Nov 30th, with Apex set to release just in time for Christmas. It makes it so much easier when I have lots of time for re-writes and editing

THE RELEASE DATES WITH THE CORRECT SEQUENCE IS:

TITLE               SERIES #  RELEASE DATE

GAME THEORY              1       6/30/22

HEIRS OF AVALON          2       09/30/22

APEX PREDATOR            3       11/20/22

BABYLON SHATTERED        4       2/01/23

CLONED AMBITION          5       6/30/23

THE ARCADIAN WEB         6       7/31/23

CITY OF DECEPTION                 7           09/30/2023

Does he betray his brother to save his family and his colony?

The rebels are furious when Mathias and Ivette return to live in the house she inherited from her grandmother.

HALCYON

A Very Modern twist on the story of David and Bathsheba.”

They rebelled against their masters and rejected human values as humans had rejected them. But was what they created any better?

Clones had been bred like cattle and used for unspeakable purposes by ‘Normal’ humans for generations. Those who escaped captivity wanted nothing so much as to destroy their former owners.

None hated the Normals more than Scarlet Jones when she found out she was created so an old actress could claim her body when she reached maturity. She escaped death when the old woman died before the brain transplant was done. Then the old woman’s heirs sold Scarlet to a clone farm. By luck and the intervention of a few college students she escaped again, this time to join her Mate Dagmar and his band of ‘wild’ clones.

When Napoleon, the Free Clones leader, made a deal with the illegal Portal gatekeepers for their own colony, it created the hope of a different future. But Scarlet Jones finds  there is a price for joining the Clone Colony on Halcyon. Napoleon wants Scarlet, but she has a mate whom she loves. Is there a way to keep her dream of being free and not give in to Napoleon's demands? Can Scarlet, Dagmar and the others build their new colony and keep it safe from predation by the 'Normals' and their own people?

APEX REVIEWS

Apex Predator

5 stars

Another in the Outlawed Colonies series, the story reads easily. Ms. Daley creates a complete world and interactive society that is unique yet feels very familiar. The characters are well drawn and completely believable in a style her readers will find familiar. The book has a glossary of information on all of the outlawed colonies she has created which will help the readers new to her works to understand the fantasy universe she had created but reads we.all as a standalone novel. The storyljne is easy to follow and certainly not boring. I highly recommend Alex Predator. I received an ARC and this is my honest opinion of this novel.

Deadly plants and predators, what else could Zach be exposed to. Danger everywhere. An amazing story with great characters to keep you intrigued once it’s released.


Myra Mccullouch

5 out of 5 stars

The Outlaw Colony of Lemuria has more than its share of deadly plants and animals. 

These are only some of the challenges faced by Zach Tylor as he guides a group of Researchers to an isolated site on the planet. Along the way Zach uncovers a dangerous conspiracy. 

Suspense has you turning the pages to see the outcomes.


GAME THEORY REVIEWS

By Laura S Reading

4.0 out of 5 stars

Instant family, loyalties tested, strong females

Reviewed in the United States on July 6, 2022


While this veers off from my typical reading I was intrigued by the concept.

A newly matched couple rescues cloned children and must take them to a different world to keep them safe.

Upon returning home with their new family, home doesn't turn out to be a safe spot. Lots of military intrigue. Very strong female characters.

Some sensitive topics, tastefully handed, but still made me a bit squeemish.

This is just a glimpse into this world and if you are a science fiction fan I believe you will find it intriguing.

I want to see how these characters develop.


These are my own opinions. I was gifted a copy of this book and not required to post a positive review.

Gail Daley again weaves a wonderful futuristic story with strong characters and an intriguing storyline that leaves you wanting more.

Highly recommended if you enjoy this genre

5 stars

Once more Gail Daley has given readers a fascinating view of the future in worlds similar, but differing in many ways, from Earth society and development. Action is a constant in her writing and this book does not disappoint. The characters are well-drawn, with some familiar to readers of past books in this series. However, it us a novel that stands alone as well. I highly recommend it to adults and young adults. I received an ARC and this is my honest review of this novel.

BABYLON SHATTERED REVIEWS

James

5 of 5 stars

This is an easy to read tale from one of the Outlaw Planets, Shangri-la. Ms. Daley has created a fantasy universe with multiple planets having different living conditions and governments. She has created well-drawn characters to fill these planets which are connected, through portals, to an Earth, devastated by pandemics and continental shifts. I do not believe in reiterating storylines as I feel it detracts from a reader's enjoyment. However, the author has created an amazing set of stories, each of which can be a standalone, enjoyable read, but which together form an entirely believable universe that could actually come to pass in the future. I highly recommend this novella. I received an ARC and this is my honest assessment of this book

Myra McCullouch

5 of 5 stars

Another great read from Gail Daley.

The off world colonies, those that inhabit them and their stories are wonderfully entertaining. 

Set on Shangri-la this sci-fi murder mystery is littered with suspects and intrigues. Corruption, greed, blackmail, and signs of political unrest make for interesting times to come for Clemintine and Mason.

Thank you for the opportunity to read your book
