Every day, society seems to step closer and closer to becoming a world straight out of a dystopian novel. Throughout the series, the Percivious trilogy has pushed against this path by showing the world a more utopian route that can be followed to take better care of the planet and all those who live on it. Through its rigorously-researched, scientifically-plausible plotlines to the trilogy's selfless core, husband-and-wife author duo JJ Cook & AJ Cook, M.D., have worked to create an affecting chronicle that brings compassion to turbulent times.
The final installment of the Percivious trilogy, Percivious Escape [Girl Friday Productions, November 8, 2022] brings a satisfying and dramatic resolution to this gripping series. In book one, Percivious Insomnia, readers were introduced to an otherworldly mystery that could completely unravel civilization -- an insomnia pandemic with no discernible cause, or cure. As this inexplicable pandemic continues to tighten its grip on society, readers take a journey through space and time in book two, Percivious Origins, to discover another species that once called Earth home. The XYZ live in abundance and value shared knowledge and emotional connection above all else after being forced to leave Earth millions of years ago. But after failing to find a new planet to inhabit and their ship taking severe damage, they are forced to return to their ancestral home, setting into motion events for which there will be an unfathomable price to pay.
Packed with engrossing language and scientific knowledge, Percivious Escape brings the fragile existence of two species and their civilizations crashing together under the ticking time bomb of this deadly pandemic. Together they form an unlikely alliance to discover the mystery behind the insomnia’s true origin and embark on a last-ditch effort to save both species from complete annihilation. But is it already too late for an escape? Bringing everything together for an explosive conclusion Percivious Escape is a beautiful ending to a series that is years in the making. The Percivious trilogy is a timely, prescient portrait of today’s globalized society and through it, readers can see how characters in the story choose to come together and take care of each other and apply this to their own lives.
