The trilogy begins …
It is normal for us to wish to improve our health, our appearance and/or our intelligence. As humans, we strive to improve ourselves to meet expectations, set rightly or wrongly, by forces within our society. There are no easy fixes but every now and then, a simple fix may tempt us to try something that seems too good to be true. This is exactly what happens to a group of college students facing the peer pressure placed upon them by school and particularly, the game of football.
Dr. Cohn, a professional researcher, supported by the local college, has developed a wonder drug to improve almost any imperfection the human body may have. Students are joining his ranks, taking the injections and being paid to be subjects in the human trials. The results are both incredible and terrifying.
Author Drew Silver begins the novel with a series of unusual events experienced by her characters. Through these events, the reader meets and gets to know the young people who are central to the story. These are intelligent students who attend an informational meeting and get caught up in the plan that spans the world and may, ultimately destroy it. Silverâ€™s excellent writing style keeps the reader on the edge of his seat and wanting more. This novel is an excellent beginning of what is sure to be a very popular trilogy.
Author, Drew Silver resides in San Diego, Ca. Her experience with law enforcement, martial arts, and her love of vampire stories provide a wealth of experience sure to enhance this trilogy. Watch for the 2nd and 3rd books in 2007 and 2008.
