There have since been three more stories included in this fun fantasy series. If you’re looking for something a bit wild that doesn’t take itself too seriously, then check out Enormity for yourself and read the three-part saga all the way to the end to find out what happens.

Enormity starts out focusing on the main character of Jack. His career in the entertainment industry is going really well because he’s not only a rock star, he’s the most famous one in the entire world. The only catch is that he isn’t even from the planet that he’s famous on.

Jack used to have dreams of being a professional rock star when he was young. All that he ever wanted in life was to be a musician. Then he changed things up and signed up with NASA to go on one of their space programs. Just like that, he’s on a mission heading off into deep space.

These things usually go well when they go well. When they don’t, they usually go disastrously awry. The mission predictably takes a turn for the worse when they crash on another planet. Are they alone on this new world? It turns out that this is a place inhabited by alien organic beings already, an intelligent race that actually evolved from humans.

These are the descendants of the human race, and they have developed on a timeline that is parallel to the people of Earth’s. When he plays guitar and performs some of the top rock songs on Earth for the aliens, they are amazed. They’ve never heard the words of Leonard Cohen or the folksy tunes of Bob Dylan. Neil Young is a revelation for them.

As you can probably figure out, Jack is an immediate his among all of these aliens. They are overjoyed to be able to listen to all of this new music and discover art from musicians that they never would have otherwise been able to hear. There are plenty of aliens here to appreciate the art that he is playing for him, too. If he stays here, he might be more famous than he ever would have been on Earth.

Jack always truly wanted to be a rock star, but now he has the chance to really make it happen. Could crashing on this planet be the best thing to ever happen to him? As he keeps playing, he can tell that he is on the verge of becoming a super star. The audiences that he is drawing from around the entire planet clearly show an appreciation for what he is doing.

If this keeps up, Jack may never decide to leave. The people of this planet are totally obsessed with the music and think that Jack wrote all of these songs. He becomes a celebrity and is even quickly achieving a high and widespread degree of reverence. How long can this really go on? They say that all good things eventually come to an end.

Landing in this place is like living in a brand new dream world, and Jack is loving his new role as a rock star to the alien masses. He is basking in the glow of this new fame and adoration from all of his fans. With any luck, this will not come to an end anytime soon.

However, this star may soon find out that the lie that he so casually told to maintain his status is about to have major consequences. Can he survive this wild ride through his newly acquired fame? It’s anybody’s guess. Full of twists and turns, check out this three part novel and read to the end to find out what happens next!
