Every week I try to post on whatever SFF book I’ve been reading that week, but this week I’ve been buried in Kristen Lamb’s Are You There Blog? It’s Me, Writer (which I highly recommend for you writers out there so I couldn’t resist giving Kristen a bit of love). But…that’s not SFF so I’ll highlight another book that crossed my desk.
Christine Amsden has written The Immortality Virus, which was just published this year by Twilight Times Books. Here’s the official blurb:
In the mid-21st century, the human race stopped aging. Those who know why aren’t talking, and the few who are brave enough to ask questions tend to disappear. To an elite few, The Change means long life and health, but to the increasing masses, it means starvation, desperation, and violence.
Four centuries after The Change, Grace Harper, a blacklisted P.I., sets off on a mission to find the man responsible for it all and solicit his help to undo The Change – if he’s still alive. To complicate matters, Grace’s employer is suspected of murdering his father, and when the police learn of their connection, they give her a choice – help them find the evidence they need to convict Matthew Stanton, or die. But if they discover Grace’s true mission, they won’t hesitate to kill her in order to protect their shot at immortality.
The paperback is available from the publisher for $18.95 (digital ebook for $6.50). I also see you can get a Kindle ebook for $3.25. You can read an excerpt here. If you want a free copy, I have one available for the first person who emails me at dona [at] fantasyandfaith dot com. Put “The Immortality Virus” in the subject line. (U.S. residents only, please)
