Beginnings and Ends

I’m a little late in announcing this here, but I’m happy to say that there will be a third book in the series that started with Falling Sky and Rising Tide. The┬áthird book, currently titled Raining Fire, will be out from Pyr next year. I’m looking forward to putting an end to Ben’s story and bringing the series to a close (if only because all stories should have endings). I’m working on the novel now and all I can say is that it’s fun to continue to put Ben through his paces, especially after hitting rock bottom.

That being said, if you’re on the fence about the series or always wanted to pick it up but didn’t get around to it, or have friends you might be interested, Barnes and Noble is having a Start a Series sale and Falling Sky is one of the books featured. That means that the ebook version is selling for only $2.99 — not just at BarnesandNoble.com but everywhere that ebooks are sold. So grab it if you want, or tell your friends, or hell, even your enemies. And if you do read it, I’d appreciate it if you could leave a review wherever you got it from. Whatever you think.

Raining Fire – Coming July 18, 2017!


Raining Fire, the third and final book in the Ben Gold series, will be released on July 18, 2017. This book ties up the story begun in Falling Sky leading to an explosive conclusion. Available for pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & Noble now.

Rising Tide -Out now!


Rising Tide, the sequel to Falling Sky, was released on October 6, 2015. Publisher's Weekly said, "Khanna crafts a terrifyingly dismal picture of the future, raising the stakes by gradually stripping Ben of friends and support while throwing him into increasingly dire situations. His worldbuilding remains solid and unsettling, and he never loses sight of the human element. The cliffhanger ending is sure to leave readers on the edges of their seats, panting for resolution."

Falling Sky – Out now!


Falling Sky, my first novel, came out October 7, 2014 from Pyr. It's an adventure story set in a post-apocalyptic future with airships. Publisher's Weekly called it a "solid and memorable debut" while Library Journal gave it a starred review and named it Debut of the Month. For more information, please click here.
