New Book -- Welltower: Second Run

I’ve just released Welltower: Second Run, the second book in the Welltower series, to the publishers today. I should have the first proof copy in my hand within a week and will sell the book in Kindle and paperback formats soon after the reviews come back.

The Welltower books are young adult science fiction thrillers for our time with an uplifting message. Here is the description for Second Run:

Kaehl and Selda have found healing, happiness, and new friends in the utopian land of Alizon, guardian of Welltower’s secrets. They have also found new foundations for their lives and a desire to give back.

But all is not as it seems. Alizon has its enemies, too, and once more the brother and sister team must descend into the depths of Welltower to solve its deadly mysteries. Torn apart by their new missions, they quickly find themselves mired in the moral and physical decay of their dying city.

Traveling separate paths, they find new strength and abilities as they battle the Tower’s corrupt elite, racing for their lives against disease and unexpected disaster in the looking-glass world called Welltower.

Lester Yocum’s books, including “The Christmas Orange” and "Welltower: First Run" are available on Amazon. For more details, see my website.

Another 5-Star Review!

I got another great review of Welltower: First Run in Amazon. It's another 5-star bit of goodness: "Kaehl grabbed my interest on the first page. His loyalty to his family is strong enough to withstand the many tests he goes through and it kept me reading and reading. I couldn't put the book down until completed! Lester has created an interesting their world upside down? inside out? or just another rabbit hole someone fell down? A very good read, an interesting concept and I'm anxiously waiting for the second book of the series!!"

First Welltower Review

I just got my first Amazon review for my book Welltower: First Run. The reviewer gave it 5 stars: "This is a book that's a little frightening to read. The details of the world Lester created are so real that it hurt sometimes. I didn't want to put the book down, yet it haunted me long after I had. This is a riveting book, and one that I highly recommend. Lester says that he has more coming. I'll be first in line to pick one up." Great!
