In 2012, one cycle of an ancient calendar system came to a close. Humanity predicted its downfall, but it wasn’t the end of their evolutionary climb. It was the beginning.
Willow Kent is discovering that life as a second-phase prodigy comes at a price. Trapped in the London Core, her choices are limited, made difficult by her forbidden romance with Reece and the presence of a new commanding officer who establishes harsh rules. With unpredictable skills and a growing distrust in her birth parents, she is struggling to play the Core’s game. But when opportunity arises in the form of a mysterious shapeshifter, Willow realizes there’s more to her own evolution than meets the eye. She soon learns that keeping secrets is a key move, and the more dangerous they are, the greater her need to evolve into the powerful prodigy nature intended her to become.
But those closest to her have their own secrets, and her status has made her an easy target for betrayal. Who will she turn to, when nothing is as it seems?
C.L. Denault is a speculative fiction writer who loves dreaming up tales of adventure and intrigue. A former systems analyst, she gave up her nerdy code-writing skills to care for her family (including a son with special needs), and currently lives among the vast stretches of cornfields in Illinois.
Writing and working out are her biggest passions, along with drinking coffee and watching sci-fi. When she’s not hanging out with her husband and kids, she can usually be found at a library or tucked away in the shadowy corner of a hip coffeehouse. She’s also been glimpsed sneaking into her garage, late at night, to work on her time machine.
She enjoys connecting with people—especially those from other planets, nearby dimensions, and the future. To find her, just visit her website or social media pages. Or use a Stargate. Whichever is easiest.
Cover Reveal With:
Anna Katmore grew up in Vienna – not by free will but because her parents decided to move there when she was only 4 years old. She hated the city, everything about it. So right after graduation, she moved back to the country side where she settled down with a nice husband and an awesome laptop. (The laptop came first!)
She’s been a storyteller all her life. Already in kindergarten, she came up with the most exotic fantasies and tales. Her teacher back then called her a liar. Today, Anna calls it the cornerstone of her writing career.
People always told her: you can’t make a living with being an author. After her first novella PLAY WITH ME came out and shot straight to the stars within the first week, she knew she could do anything if only she never stopped dreaming.
That’s also part of what she teaches her students in writing workshops today. Always dream big! If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.
