THE BEGINNING'S END by Nikki Martin (Forthcoming, Summer 2021). Five years after the people of Alpha Iridium beat back an ancient Darkness, those who led the fight have still not moved on. Every year on the anniversary of that victory, Medea, Corin and Jaren, the Founders, their children and a few others meet on the shores of Samnar to mark the day they lost so much, even while they won. This year is different. It will be the last of its kind; even if they don’t know it yet. Fate, time, and the forces that govern the universe have conspired once again to set things in motion towards some unknown end.
On an Earth that has made its way slowly back from the brink of destruction, forever changed, Rogan and her people live a quiet and simple life, seemingly far removed from any other of the surviving humans scattered across the planet. When a mysterious woman with no memory of who she is or where she’s come from shows up in their midst, Rogan can feel a sense of looming dread. Something is coming for them.
Two worlds, forever tied together, in dreaming and in destiny, will finally find their ending. And yet, is
anything truly ever done in a universe where the possibility is always that things will come back around again, and again, and again?
THE BEGINNING'S END (Forthcoming 2021) by Nikki Martin reveals a surprising struggle even while reconnecting readers with their favorite characters from her series. The Awake While Dreaming series covers the lives of Kale and Kayla in book one, A MOMENTARY DARKNESS (2018). While the second book, THE BEGINNING'S END returns with some of the heroines and heroes from the first book, Martin introduces compelling new characters whose lives change the fate of everyone.

Nikki Martin is a yoga teacher and writer living on the east coast of Canada with her two cats Tris and Lu. Through her own lived experience and through teaching, she has come to believe whole heartedly in the practice of yoga as one that can offer space to heal, find strength, build new habits and provide an opportunity to take much needed time for ourselves. She is passionate about teaching to all bodies, to bringing yoga to anyone curious about its power and potency, and creating an inclusive space that all people will feel welcomed in.
Her love of stories, both reading and creating them, started very young when she realized they could be both escape and salvation for a shy, sensitive and awkward kid who always felt a little bit out of place despite having friends and being very social. She drafted her first novel in grade nine and her first feature length screenplay not long after that, and has written many of both genres since. She hopes to share her work with readers over the coming years and to continue to share her passion for yoga while teaching and traveling.
She is an avid reader, a daydreamer, a movie lover, a sunset chaser, a stargazer, a love warrior, a tree hugger, a beach walker, a storyteller, and an ocean soul.
