Lake Ephemeral

Anya Allyn
6

A chilling young adult sci fi that will twist your mind. By the author of the best selling series, The Dark Carousel.


The hidden, tropical valley of Lake Ephemeral seemed like a paradise. When orphan Seraphin is told her mother is alive and living in this idyllic valley, she's overjoyed. At last, she can have a family.


But something is wrong in Lake Ephemeral. Seven mansions surround the lake, and it is forbidden to enter the seventh. Seraphin accidentally discovers the terrifying secret inside the seventh manor. A group of scientists is experimenting on the children.


But there's no escape. No resident of the valley ever sets foot outside the high, iron fences that surround it - not even when a young girl falls ill and dies.


In her seventeenth year, Seraphin will make a bold but desperate plan. The clock is ticking. The experiments carried out on her when she was just a child are about to change her in ways she does not yet understand.


 "...this novel was unique and interesting and exciting from beginning to end. A refreshing change of pace from your typical YA novel. One part mystery, one part thriller, one part science fiction with a particular emphasis on the science. It was truly a gem to find."

Jess ❈Harbinger of Blood-Soaked Rainbows❈ (Goodreads reviewer) 


 Lake Ephemeral is also published in France by publisher, Editions du Chat Noir.

 "Literary fiction that transcends its genre. Read this novel. Immediately."--Ashley McCall, Portland Book Review of WRITER 

"VISIONARY" and "ENTHRALLING"
--Richard Bunning and Norm Hamilton, authors of Another Space in Time and From Thine Own Well 

*** FOREWORD REVIEWS' INDIEFAB BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARDS FINALIST ***

READER, WRITER, and MAKER: All three novels of the trilogy in one book. Speculative fiction with time travel, alien armageddon, metaphysical mysteries, action, adventure, cosmology, cybernetics, religion, and romance! 

READER: From the future, a final plea. Out of the past, a last hope. 
Ambra Dawn, a young girl born to die in freakish disregard. A doomed world, enslaved to forces unseen. A final hope beyond imagining. Become a Reader, because in the end, the most unbelievable step in the adventure - will be your own. 

"Unique and altogether profound, reminiscent of Bradbury, haunting, thought-provoking and surprisingly philosophical." -San Francisco Book Reviews, READER 

WRITER: From hatred, Love. From many, One. 
Book 2 in the Daughter of Time trilogy: A love story and sci-fi epic about the beautiful and terrible destiny of profoundly star-crossed lovers with a galaxy's fate in their hands. 

"Deeply thoughtful and exciting, warping the expectations of the genre... reminds me of Dan Simmons' Hyperion." -San Francisco Book Reviews, WRITER 

MAKER: Until all is lost, nothing is found. 
Conclude the epic story of Ambra Dawn in the final installment of the trilogy. A story in which the one that was lost will be found. Where a thief will guide through chaos and time. Where all that was held dear will perish. And in that final and utter destruction--there will be a Creation. 

"Exploratory fiction at its most powerful and intelligent, Maker will challenge and reward all those who have ever wanted to believe in almost anything." -ForeWord Reviews, MAKER
