If genetic engineering could guarantee you and your family perfect health and unparalleled beauty, would you pay top dollar for it? Would you kill for it?

Residents of the Colony would. And do.

Only the Insurgents can stop them.

Seventeen-year-old Asher Solomon is a premier operative with the Insurgents. He and his team have rescued countless hostages, saving them from painful deaths in Colony labs as desirable genetic traits are stripped from their bodies.

He’s also suffered more losses than anyone should have to.

Then Asher gets intel that might give his people the upper hand. The Colony is searching for Subject A36. If the Insurgents determine the subject’s identity first, they might be able to turn the tide of the war.

Asher and his team embark on their riskiest mission ever, and the stakes have never been higher. But even if he survives the physical dangers, the devastating secrets he uncovers might destroy him. 

 

#AmWatching, #SubjectA36 on #NetGalley, #Excerpt

Hubby and I had a fun weekend.  We have friends over every Super Bowl, and it’s always a good time and way too much food.  I didn’t really care about the teams this year, but I always look forward to the commercials.  My favorites this year were the ones featuring Jason Momoa (don’t even remember what he was advertising because I was laughing so much), Sam Elliott for Doritos, and MC Hammer for Cheetos.  I also caught a little of the kitten bowl – so much cuteness!  I’d adopt every one of them if I could.

Friday night, we watched Rambo: Last Blood.  Unless you’re a Rambo fanatic or just want to see what becomes of the guy at the end of the series, don’t bother.  Basically, bad things happen, Rambo goes after the guys, lures them back to his home turf, and then it plays out like Home Alone, only with a much higher body count.  Still, Stallone moves pretty well for a 73-year-old.

Now for another excerpt!  In this scene, Asher and Brynn are in the middle of a rescue mission and encounter two guards.  Asher has already taken care of his and turns to watch Brynn.

The guard spun around to face her, as his hand reached for the gun holstered at his side.  But before he could draw the weapon, she took a running leap and used his thigh as a springboard to propel herself up.  She hooked her right leg around his neck then used her momentum to take them both to the ground.  With his air supply cut off, he was unconscious in seconds. 

She was so graceful – it was like watching a deadly ballet.

“Very nice.”

“He went down quicker than you.”

Brynn had practiced the move on me over the past few weeks, wrapping her legs around my neck dozens, possibly hundreds of times.

I grinned.  “Maybe I enjoyed it more.”

She smirked in reply.

Just wanted to remind all the bloggers and reviewers in the blogosphere that The Gemini Connection will be available on NetGalley through the end of May.  Download it here!

Teen twin brothers Evan and Simon Resnik are fiercely loyal to each other and share an unusual bond—they experience each other’s emotions as their own and can sense where the other is.

On their dying planet of Tage, scientists work tirelessly on its survival. Like the twins’ parents, Simon is a science prodigy, recruited at a young age to work with the brilliant creator of Scientific Innovations. To the bitter disappointment of their parents, Evan shows no aptitude or interest in science. As a Mindbender, he travels into the minds of scientists to locate buried memories, connect ideas and concepts, and battle recurring nightmares.

When Simon mysteriously disappears, Evan is plunged into a world of loss and unbearable guilt. For the first time, he can’t ‘feel’ Simon—it’s like he no longer exists. Evan blames himself. No one knows that he ignored his brother’s pleas for help on the night he went missing.

A year later, Simon is still gone. Evan lost his twin, but Tage might have lost its last hope of survival when it’s discovered that Simon’s unfinished project could be its salvation. Evan is determined to find him—somewhere—and bring Simon home. Their unusual connection might be more extraordinary than they know, and the key to locating Simon.
