Brandon Ying Kit Boey

Brandon Ying Kit Boey is a novelist, poet, and lawyer living in the State of Maine, United States of America. He was born in California, but grew up transiently, cycling through a series of homes, hotels, and schools before settling in Maine with his family. He was educated at New York University and Brigham Young University Law School, and has worked as a child actor, intern at Marvel, investment banker, and lawyer, among other things—the one constant occupation being writing.

Book description:

In the isolation of the Himalayas, the snows still fall, but they are tinged with the ash of a nuclear winter; the winds still blow, but they wail with the cry of ghosts. The seventh and final blast is near. As the world heaves its final breaths, the people of the Tibetan plateau—civilization’s final survivors—are haunted by spirits and terrorized by warlords. Though the last of the seven prophesied cataclysms is at hand, young Karma searches for a father who disappeared ten years earlier, presumed dead. Driven by a yearning to see his father again before the end, and called by an eerie horn unheard by anyone else, Karma forges into the Himalayas and discovers that his father’s disappearance may be linked to a mystical mountain said to connect the physical world with the spirit lands—and a possible way to save their doomed future.

 

“A hero’s journey for the end of the world, KARMA OF THE SUN is a must-read for anyone reckoning with where we are now and where we will go next.”

Erin Swan, author of Walk the Vanished Earth
