"Have you ever picked up your book before bed and thought oh I'll just read 3 chapters? Well this is what I did and ended up with some very tired mornings because I simply could not put this book down!! I can't wait to see the next book in this series and any other book from this author."
- Tina Moss
"What a breath of fresh air. I am a big fan of this type of SciFi. But, the author has brought it to a new level. Such detail, without overloading facts and insignificant issues. It was difficult to take my eyes off of it. The train of thought was smooth and the flow of the story was at a very comfortable pace. This author has a true calling and a great deal of talent." - Alexander Constantopoulos
"My husband and I both read this book. We are polar opposites but neither of us could put it down. I emotionally connectd with the characters and I found myself on the edge of suspense."
- R. A. Newton
"I'm à huge fan of sci-fi and the occasional zombie stories. Though this didn't have zombies per se, there was the same feel to it. With very few inconsistencies, it was a story that can keep you interested in finding out what happens next. Whenever you think things are becoming "normal," it gets the adrenalne rushing all over again. It was nice to have a strong female lead in the story! I can easily see this being made into a movie. Very entertaining and I was sorry to have it end."
- Donna Davis
"I just finished my second read of this book. The suspense kept me turning pages, even when I knew what was coming. I would strongly recommend this to any teen or adult looking for a thrill ride."
DEAD TREES - PITCH
A scientist mommy battling beasties better be handy with a scalpel.
Elise Swanson is trying to give her daughters a decent childhood. This should be a simple task, but the invading undergrounders – subterranean humanoids that have existed since the dawn of mankind – make outdoor playtime a tad tricky.
After fleeing Georgia and surviving six months of bumbling self-sufficiency, Elise and her daughters meet Jason. He's tough and nature-savvy. Pit stop fights with beasties define the survival-road that the four companions navigate. The bloody pavement finally ends in Washington State at a government safe zone where the trekkers hope to build a stationary life.
A little rest and rehab would be nice, but Elise is quickly led down a path of research and deception where humanity's future isn't a priority. She becomes leader of a secret plan and long nights in the lab keep her busy. She strives to destroy the undergrounders and the life of an underhuman crossbreed hangs in the balance.
Haphazardly conceived and manufactured, the H2H (Humanoid-to-Human) chromosome-targeting nanotech has a small probability of success, but Elise has to believe it will work. Hour by hour, she becomes less confident and more emotionally compromised by the rapidly growing, stunning underhuman. Her maternal nature leads to a late-night escapade resulting in a platinum-haired, third daughter and a million uncertainties.
Fleeing her home, Elise had two loved ones to shelter. That number has risen. When the not-so-safe zone is invaded by beasties, she will save her family... no matter the consequences.
