Minerva Rus can raise the dead. And just it might get her killed.
Minerva’s life hasn't been the same since the childhood car accident that paralyzed her and killed her best friend, Raven. But when the long-dead Raven reappears in her life, now as a very attractive grown man, she discovers that her photographic memory has the power to bring the dead back to life ... heal her paralysis ... and shape reality itself.
I'm proud to announce that Linden, publisher of "Fresno Growing Up," has chosen "Memortality" is the first novel for its new imprint, Pace Press. It's my first novel in exactly four years, following "Identity Break," my fiction premiere, as Stifyn Emrys.
"Memortality" is an action/adventure novel set in present-day Southern California, where Minerva has just discovered she possesses a rare ability: She can use her eidetic memory as a catalyst to bring people she's known in the past back from the dead. She soon finds herself pursued by a rogue spy and a deep-cover assassin intent on harnessing her power for their own purposes. There's little time to master her newfound abilities, but that's exactly what she has to do if she hopes to stay one step ahead of her greatest enemy - and keep Raven alive. It isn't long before she finds herself faced with life-or-death decisions that could define her destiny, the fate of her friends and perhaps the course of human history.
Minerva is a take-no-prisoners hero in the tradition of Hermione Granger, Katniss Everdeen, Natasha Romanov, Princess Leia and Alyssa Gonzalez from Samaire Provost's "Mad World" trilogy. If you've been waiting for a new kind of paranormal adventure that's packed with action and delivers romance with a dash of humor, check out "Memortality." You can pre-order it today on Amazon, and it will be available February 1, 2017, online and at fine bookstores everywhere.
When Minerva Rus’ dead childhood friend returns to life, she discovers she has the power to raise the dead — plunging her into amazing possibilities and terrifying danger.
Memortality is a genre-breaking new contemporary fantasy novel that poses one of the most frightening questions of all — what if the dead don’t stay dead? We all fantasize about reuniting with lost loved ones, but would any of us want to be responsible for wielding such power? And if good people can be revived, what about evil ones?
Featuring an intrepid, take-charge female protagonist who lets nothing — not disability, not death, not loss and heartbreak — stand in her way, Memortality blends fantasy, mystery, espionage and romance in a compelling story that will keep readers gripped until the final, startling revelation.
