Blue Into The Rip

Blue didn’t want to be in the future… they didn’t want him there either

A rip in the fabric of time, a far-flung globally warmed future, a flooded Earth and the only remainder of civilisation – a militaristic organisation living underneath ‘Desert Amazon’…

Getting back home was the only thing that mattered to messed up, mixed race teenager, Blue (named after his stupid, googly blue eyes) – and that was the problem – home was over four hundred years in the past.

Ripped forwards in time from his odd hippy parents, their peculiar house and his lonely school life, Blue had only one thing on his mind: return. But how does a lowly cadet in a militaristic Academy living in a post-apocalyptic future achieve such a goal, especially with the distractions of girls, pilot training, spacewalks and his almost constant unpopularity?

The more Blue found out about this flooded, gung-ho annoying future, about himself – who and what he was (was he even human?) – and the equally disturbing and shocking truth about his ‘parents’ – the more he realised getting home was the only solution. Wasn’t it?

If Blue knew one thing, it was that he would at least try.

Kat, Queen of Tarts (The Book Tart Review)

“An amazing read and Kev Heritage’s writing is superb and unique…I definitely recommend this book to sci-fi adventure readers!!!…A book you don’t want to miss :)
Chloe – Girl In The Woods ARC Review: ‘Blue Into The Rip’

“Fun, quick-paced…intense, exciting…a roller-coaster ride. Kev Heritage’s use of imagery in Blue into the Rip is just wicked! …rich with characters”
Nadaness In Motion Review: ‘Blue Into The Rip’

“[Kev Heritage] tosses us into the future, pulls us into the past, and then throws us back again, points us down unfamiliar roads with nothing but a compass, and drops us in the middle of events without a map—and the process is enthralling…Heritage seems to understand that you don’t need to go ‘over the top’ in order to make contact with the human heart…I look forward to being there with Blue through each new release date as his fight through time unfolds, and I certainly hope that many of you will join me.”
Heather- The Underground Treehouse Review

“A fun, addictive read from page 1…I’m still thinking about this wonderful story…expertly blended to make a truly unique story that I enjoyed immensely…reviewing Mr. Heritage’s biography I was surprised to see magician was not one of the many, many occupations he has held… a satisfying conclusion…a unique, thrilling and immersive story, all the more impressive as it is a debut novel”
@ScottWhitmore: 40 West Media Review 

“fast paced, intriguing, thought provoking, character driven science fiction…underlying lesson about climate change, which isn’t preachy- it’s so well woven into the fabric of the story, you don’t feel like you’re being beaten over the head about an issue which is becoming more clear, day by day – quit hurting the planet we live on, lest we turn our cities into dust, and we along with them…It’s fine science fiction, with a great story and well imagined characters that keep you fully engaged. I loved it.”
The Tracey Fleming, The Written Universe

“This is one of those books and I was awake into the early hours reading…I really enjoyed this book and would rate it very highly in my list to date of this genre and type…I will definitely be coming back for more. Young Adult time travel at its best.”
Bodica,  A Woman’s Wisdom

Kev Heritage


When Kev isn’t penning difficult, third person descriptions of himself for on and off-line publications, he mulls away the hours writing science fiction mysteries and epic fantasy with a strong emphasis on action and adventure—and occasionally a little humour.

He certainly doesn’t spend his time watching dubious sci-fi films and second rate box-sets on the telly, nor go down the pub, or do anything else other than concentrating on the written word.

“A writer writes,” he is often heard to say. And that’s what Kev does. Write that is, not talk about writing! There can be no doubt about it.

Kev has recently been diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum (ASD), which means he has absolutely no sense of humour and finds it terrifically hard to get on with people… This is only half true.

His rather long list of previous employment includes: driver’s mate, factory gate-man, barman, labourer, telesales operative, sales assistant, warehouse-man, Student Union President, university IT help-desk guy, British Rail signal software designer, premiership football website designer, mobile banking content team lead, gigging musician, graphic designer, stand-up comedian, sound engineer, improv artist, magazine editor and web journo. Although he doesn’t like to talk about it.

For a hobby, Kev likes to work for a living, where he performs various metaphorical somersaults and back-flips for companies the width and breath of a small area around Victoria Tube Station, London.

Kev was born in the UK in one of the more interesting previous centuries. Originally from Derbyshire, he now lives in the seaside town of Brighton.

He is a tea drinker, Twitter aficionado and part-time stand-up comedian.
