Alice in Deadland

Civilization as we know it ended more than fifteen years ago, leaving as it’s legacy barren wastelands called the Deadland and a new terror for the humans who survived- hordes of undead Biters.

Fifteen year-old Alice has spent her entire life in the Deadland, her education consisting of how best to use guns and knives in the ongoing war for survival against the Biters. One day, Alice spots a Biter disappearing into a hole in the ground and follows it, in search of fabled underground Biter bases.

What Alice discovers there propels her into an action-packed adventure that changes her life and that of all humans in the Deadland forever. An adventure where she learns the terrible conspiracy behind the ruin of humanity, the truth behind the origin of the Biters, and the prophecy the mysterious Biter Queen believes Alice is destined to fulfill.

A prophecy based on the charred remains of the last book in the Deadland- a book called Alice in Wonderland.

Through The Looking Glass: Alice in Deadland Book II

More than two years have passed since Alice followed a Biter with bunny ears down a hole, triggering events that forever changed her life and that of everyone in the Deadland. The Red Guards have been fought to a standstill; Alice has restored some measure of peace between humans and Biters; and under Alice, humans have laid the foundations of the first large, organized community since The Rising- a city called Wonderland.

That peace is shattered in a series of vicious Biter attacks and Alice finds herself shunned by the very people she helped liberate. Now she must re-enter the Deadland to unravel this new conspiracy that threatens Wonderland. Doing so will mean coming face to face with her most deadly adversary ever- the Red Queen.

Off With Their Heads: The Prequel to Alice in Deadland

A few months before Alice was born and fifteen years before the dramatic events depicted in Alice in Deadland, there was The Rising. A few days that destroyed human civilization as we know it, reducing much of the world to a radioactive wasteland teeming with hordes of undead Biters and controlled by a shadowy Central Committee.

Off With Their Heads brings to life the final harrowing days of The Rising through four shorts, each depicting events through the eyes of one pivotal character in the Alice in Deadland series. See how Dr. Protima became the Queen of the Biters; feel the pain of a young man’s sacrifice as he becomes the bunny-eared Biter whom Alice later follows down a hole; follow the rise of Chen from a conflicted young Chinese Army officer to a General in the Red Guards; and finally share in the dramatic escape of Alice’s parents from a city overrun by Biters.

Obsidian: Birth to VenusFREE on Amazon!

The year is 2116. Scientists understand why super-centenarians live to 100, 115, even 125 years old. But, 66 years have passed since Dr. Jai Dean was born and she doesn’t look a day over 21. And, she’s only grown stronger with age. She can see better than a bird of prey, pinpoint the vertical position of any sound, strike a target 600 meters away, and heal wounds that cut straight to the bone. For decades, she’s had no name for it, no label to define what she is, no way to understand her body or understand the power she holds. Jai lives on the run, determined to keep her family and secret safe.

Everything changes when scientists discover the Homo sentient, a new, superior species that can siphon other people’s energy to maintain their youth. For the first time, Jai believes she’s not alone. What will she do, when new friends become family, tensions rise, and humans and sentients are bent on destroying each other?

The world is breaking. A powerful shadow force hunts her family. And, Jai is still evolving. With new skills and buried secrets, Jai’s future may be uncertain, but she knows who she is, and what she stands for.

Birth to Venus is the first book in THE OBSIDIAN CHRONICLES, which follow Jai as she’s haunted by her past and struggles to shape the future when Homo sapiens no longer rank at the top of food chain.

Jai’s story is La Femme Nikita meets The Handmaid’s Tale with an evolutionary twist. It’s a story about the future but, more than that, it’s a story about the things that never change. For Jai, family is defined by choice, not by birth or blood. Family matters, and it’s worth fighting for. This is a story that’s relevant to our divided nation today.

WHAT EARLY READERS ARE SAYING:

This book tells an excellent sci-fi fantasy story about the discovery of a new species, “Homo sentient,” that is superior to humans. The story follows Jai, a sentient who feels alone as she struggles to understand what she really is. As the story progresses, she finds out that she’s not alone, she finds solace in a motley crew of sentients, and ultimately she and her friends are forced to take sides when a rivalry brews between humans and sentients. The story is futuristic, yet unfolds with striking relevance to our currently divided nation. I liked how the sci-fi was explained through the lens of modern day science. And, the science was balanced with martial arts, romance, and friendship. If you’re looking for a new world in sci-fi fantasy with a dose of political intrigue, then I definitely recommend this book.
______

This is a great read with interesting characters. The writing is smooth and so beautiful that it captures each scene vividly. I can easily lose myself in the story. It is exciting and unpredictable.
______

The author combines many types of action (covert ops, shoot outs, and martial arts) with a suspenseful sci-fi fantasy plot, emotional side stories, and even some steamy sexy scenes, making this an exciting and fun page turner. The protagonist develops a strong sense of herself in a way that’s relatable and empowering. And, I enjoyed the author’s approach to the scientific aspects of the story. She describes how humans could be surpassed by a new superior species, but she takes a novel approach to the reaction we humans might have to it, ultimately posing important questions that are actually relevant to our nation today. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series so I joined the author’s mailing list. Sign up is on her website, where there’s also an animated video that complements her cover art. So, if you’re looking for an entertaining and though-provoking read, I highly recommend this book!
