The Candid Liar

The Faraway Chronicles #2
Science Fiction Fairytale Retelling

Inspired by the classic tale of Pinocchio and given a thrilling sci-fi twist.

Carlo was taken in by a kind mechanic when he was just a babe, but now that he’s all grown up he’s ready to leave home and finally explore the galaxy. Accompanied by a cautious android named Jaye and his father’s warnings, he’ll take his first step off of the space station he’s called home for the past sixteen years and run into all manner of companions, betrayals, adventures, and hard-learned lessons as puppet strings try to wrap around him like a seductive vise. 

The stars are not always brighter on the other side of the galaxy.
