  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) March 02, 2024 - Robert Barner is pleased to announce the release of his first science fiction novel, Shadow. Scheduled for release on March 22, 2024, the book is already receiving rave reviews from readers and reviewers.

    In a world devastated by environmental collapse, the fate of Earth rests in the hands of a psychic child without a body.

    The year is 2044 – and Bobby Hayes has a world-changing secret. Discarded from birth as something broken and not quite right, he’s a powerful psychic with the ability to read people’s true thoughts and emotions. But after a devastating house fire claims his life at the age of 9, Bobby is forced to project his powerful mind onto his best friend. With his family dead, he becomes trapped as an incorporeal shadow, capable of jumping hosts – and he escapes his sheltered upbringing to discover a world on the brink of collapse.

    Hunted by a clandestine agency and aided by his only friend – a sentient AI – Bobby becomes determined to avert catastrophe. But with each new host, he discovers more about the complexities of the human condition... and he’s forced to question how far he’s willing to go to achieve his goals. Can a shadow do what no human ever could? And will his gifts in the end turn out to be a blessing – or a terrible curse?

    Step into a gripping sci-fi adventure that explores the limits of what it means to be human. Shadow is a thought-provoking novel that’s perfect for fans of mind-bending near-future dystopia that artfully blends real-world issues with a dash of the paranormal.
