It was something that went very well, until one day, the Curtain closed up with no warning at all. It cut the colonists off from Earth, and the things they needed to keep their high technology lifestyle going. It thrust them into something a lot more primitive. They survived however, and two hundred years later, they were able to get things back to somewhere close to where modern day Earth is now. The novels all star different characters, and stand on their own. The novels are romantic suspense with a hint of the paranormal.
The series started in the year 2000, with the release of the novel “After Dark”. The series is related to other series that Jayne has written, like “The Arcane Society” and the “Curtain” series. There are both novels and short stories to this series.
