The Seabound Chronicles is a post-apocalyptic adventure at sea. The trilogy (Seabound, Seaswept, and Seafled) features a gutsy mechanic named Esther and takes place sixteen years after the apocalypse. The prequel, Burnt Sea, begins on the day of the catastrophe and includes many of the same characters. It can be read before or after the trilogy, depending on your preference.
Note: Jordan’s ideal reading order is Seabound, Seaswept, Burnt Sea, Seafled.
Esther has lived on a cruise ship for sixteen years, ever since she fled an apocalyptic catastrophe with a handful of desperate survivors. Now she works as a ship’s mechanic and dreams of a life beyond her floating small town.
When disaster strikes the water system on Esther’s watch, she’s thrust into an adventure that will threaten the lives of everyone she loves. In danger of running out of drinking water, Esther and her friends sail for a mysterious floating metropolis called the Galaxy Flotilla. The flotilla’s residents—including their handsome and enigmatic spokesman—parade their lives of luxury before the newcomers, but they’ll want something in return for their warm welcome.
Esther doesn’t trust the elegant Galaxy inhabitants, and she may be the only one who sees the threats lurking beneath the surface. When a sudden storm reveals a new peril, Esther will risk everything to save her friends—and her ship—before the sea claims them at last.

Moments before the world ends, two strangers pass each other on the San Diego boardwalk. Simon is taking a walk with his young daughter, Esther. Judith is jogging to relax before her first big job interview. When a cloud of ash descends without warning, swallowing the city behind them, Simon and Judith escape onto a nearby cruise ship and head for open water. The Yellowstone super eruption has begun, and the luxury vessel is their only hope of survival.
Cut off from all communication, the survivors begin a desperate search for a safe haven. Simon and Judith struggle to keep the peace as tensions rise between the stranded passengers, the crew, and the volatile old captain. With resources running low and storms increasing in ferocity, they’re about to encounter a threat more dangerous than the sea itself.
