 Silent Symmetry 

a YA fantasy-mystery love story 

Book 1 of the EMBODIED trilogy. 

The Embodied glide through the busy streets of New York, uttering barely a sound. 

Their eerie beauty comes from their perfect symmetry. Are they flawless humans, the epitome of evolution? Are they a genetically modified super-race? Are they extra-terrestrials? Once prep school student Kari Marriner becomes aware of their existence, she is driven to seek out the answer and finds herself ensnared in a web that reaches further than she could possibly have imagined. 

Kari’s earliest memory is her father’s death in a car crash back in small-town Wisconsin. Now, 12 years later, her mother has been hired by a pseudo-religious organization in Manhattan called the Temple of Truth (a.k.a. the ToT). At Chelsea Prep, Kari develops a crush on classmate Cruz. But when she realizes that Noon, another attractive guy at school, is involved with the ToT, her curiosity gets the better of her. 

Kari stumbles upon a secret tunnel leading from her apartment to another in the building, where an ancient book holds images she can scarcely believe, and a cavernous room contains... something inexplicable. As Kari pieces together the incredible evidence, she discovers that the ToT is run by other-worldly beings called The Embodied who influence human behavior and have established a global long-term human breeding program. But why? And what is her role in all this? 

Just as she starts wondering whether the love she feels for Cruz is genuine or if her emotions are being controlled by The Embodied, her mother is kidnapped and Kari has to figure out who is human, who is Embodied, and who she can count on to help rescue her mother. 

Silent Symmetry is the exciting first novel in JB Dutton’s EMBODIED trilogy. The second installment, Starley’s Rust, will be published January 2015.

STARLEY'S RUST 

a YA urban fantasy 

Book 2 of the EMBODIED trilogy 

Six months ago, Kari Marriner’s life was torn apart. Now turned 17, she’s looking for answers in her rural Wisconsin hometown. But just as the Embodied seemed to have vanished, there’s a new, more terrifying visitor from the Dark Universe. 

Back in Manhattan, a charismatic English artist named Starley convinces Kari he can find her missing mother if she flies to Paris with him. He also shares an incredible secret from the dawn of mankind. But Starley is not who he seems. Before she knows it, Kari finds herself standing in front of the Mona Lisa with him, yelling out, “He’s got a bomb!” 

And that’s when things go totally insane. The Rebel Embodied’s henchman, Cilic, returns to Earth on a deadly mission. The body of Kari’s treacherous friend Aranara is washed up on the banks of the Hudson. But is she really dead? In the Paris catacombs, Kari and Starley are hunted by a nightmarish mythical creature that’s all too real. 

A family mystery, an exiled race, freakish beasts, jealousy, love… and death. Kari has to face them all in the fast-paced fantasy thriller . 

Starley’s Rust is the spellbinding second novel in JB Dutton’s EMBODIED trilogy. The first installment, Silent Symmetry, was published in 2013 and reached the #1 spot on Amazon’s free Kindle ebook Futuristic & Sci-Fi Romance chart.

Wayne Gamm was born on a remote sheep farm on a mountainside in north Wales near Dolgellau, on a stormy night in June. The midwife and even the family itself wanted him to be delivered in hospital because he was going to be large and he was Gwynedd's first baby, but for reason's that will become apparent, his mother and grandmother, Rhiannon, thought that might be very dangerous. 
 
All of Gwynedd's family had been born on the farm, Yr Ardd Y Ddraig, The Dragon's Garden, for as far back as they knew - a family bible put that at 324 years - and they were all either witches or warlocks. 
 
The problem with the males though was that they were 'lose cannons', meaning they had difficulty focusing their powers. Wayne followed suit, although all witch babies have to learn self-control, even the females. 
 
Gwynedd and Rhiannon had high hopes that Wayne would be more capable than his male antecedents, but it turned out that he had such great power, and so little control, that even his own family were wary of him. 
 
He was feared and shunned at school by teachers and fellow-students alike because they knew from experience, that things could get a little weird when Wayne was around. 
 
The more astute noticed that when he was happy, good things happened, but when he was upset, anything could befall anyone. Luckily, Wayne was a happy person by nature, but this made it worse for him, because he didn't want to hurt people, so he refused to accept that he was causing the disruptions.  
They called him Fate Twister behind his back.  
 
Wayne grew up dejected, rejected, lonely and in denial. 
 
This is the story of the early life of Wayne Gamm, the Fate Twister.
FLEDGLING was a finalist in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Contest and is inspired by the author’s own daughter who was born with heart defects.

What People Are Saying-

"Love, Love, Love this book!
I really enjoyed this book. The romance was slow paced yet beautifully crafted. Its refreshing to see young adults taking their time to know each before assuming an instant relationship. The heroine learns to accept her dire circumstances and approaches life with new found hope. The hero is patient, yet willful and strong, when it comes to taking care of all he holds dear. Together they have a natural and loving bond, that will gracefully transcend into the years to come."

"I had a great time reading this book! ... I didn't see that coming!"

"I am a firm believer that you can never hear too many good things and I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your book... I can not wait to see what you have next. I hope you intend to finish the sequel/series. I hate not knowing how things end."


Look for books 2 & 3 in the Shapeshifter Chronicles, Prodigy & Emergent- available NOW!

Book Description:

Set apart from other eighteen year olds, Ana Hughes knows she is different. A life threatening heart condition smothers her future and she yearns to feel normal. Her hopes are pinned on a fresh start in a remote town far from her native Colorado. Among the locker filled hallways in Clark Bend High, Ana keeps to the shadows, not wanting to draw attention to her violet tinged lips and wilted silhouette. And she almost succeeds, until she meets Chance Morgan.

Struggling to keep up appearances, she soon suspects Chance is hiding something as well. His animal-like senses, miraculous healing ability and peculiar reaction to her Thunderbird necklace compels Ana to question if there’s more to the stories about his Navajo ancestry. Without any other explanation, she fears he is playing tricks on her. But the truth may prove too much for Ana’s delicate heart…

Madison holds two secrets, one from the mortal world, and one from her mother. She is a witch. And her father is still alive.

As she struggles to maintain a normal life, the weight of Salem’s existence tempts her to reveal a truth Alexis has longed for. If her mental struggles weren’t enough, it turns out that the Nefastus, an evil clan of witches, now not only know of her, but are determined to take her for their own nefarious plans. However, she does not stand alone against the darkness.

Vowing to protect her, the Castus Clan has agreed to take in the young witch. But when her silver-haired guardian becomes the victim of his own magic, Madison is forced to act on her own. Meanwhile, the war that Madison’s vampiric aunt warned of is brewing. 

Will Madison be able to save the boy she is falling for without jeopardizing her destiny? One thing is for sure – the Nefastus are watching. One false step could not only seal the fate of the young, purple-eyed witch, but the entire world.
