“Kyle’s adventure moves fast, ably handling both the science of multiverse theories and the thrilling dangers represented by the lab’s goons. Some questions remain open at the end…but they don’t diminish the book’s fun and excitement…an engrossing multiverse adventure.” —Michelle Anne Schingler, Foreword Reviews
Every day we each make thousands of decisions. Sometimes it’s the big ones that change our lives, sometimes it’s the tiny ones. What if all the choices not made led to billions of alternate realities where different versions of our lives unwind? On a cold and rainy night in New England, the paths of two strangers collide—a young man fleeing from his past, and a forty-something woman dreading what her future holds. When his past catches up to him, the two of them embark on a journey of danger, adventure, and self-discovery. Ultimately, they each need to face the question, How far would you go to help someone in need? K. P. Kyle’s debut novel is a riveting technothriller/road trip/parallel universes combo with a healthy dollop of romance. It will keep you hooked until the very end and make you ponder the choices you’ve made in your own life.
K. P. Kyle was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, where her mother was the founder and owner of the much-beloved independent bookstore Narnia Children's Books. She received her BA from the University of Chicago and her DVM from Cornell University. She has lived in South Boston, Massachusetts for the past sixteen years, with the exception of two years spent in Senegal. She works as a veterinarian and shares her home with a bush dog and a black dog. This is her debut novel.
Secret Service Agent Stefanie Zamani never expected to live past the first awful moments of the Big Bang, when Air Force One plummeted through the air like a falling building. Surprisingly alive after the wreck, Stef saves the First Lady, and only they escape the destruction of the plane. Surviving raging wildfires, EMP attacks, and drunks with forklifts, the women manage to find safety in the backwoods of Texas before they are betrayed into the hands of the People’s Government of Austin, who capture Laura Bush. While Stef’s county may have been shattered, her devotion to duty and Mrs. Bush remains. The political suddenly becomes very personal as the Secret Service Agent plunges into the nightmarish depths of a “worker’s paradise,” determined to rescue the First Lady, and God help anyone who stands in Stefanie Zamani’s way.
Moving across the continent, the second volume of The Lonesome George Chronicles paints the sweeping history of a nation under attack and the people who rise to defend her.
Katya is a scientist, working on a classified project for the Russian Empire. She's also desperate. Her bosses want to exploit her knowledge and send her on an incredible, dangerous mission. And if she refuses, her father's life will be forfeit.
Katya must retrieve an artefact that will grant new life to the dying Russian tsar. She's therefore being sent deep undercover on an alternate version of Earth, to an American-controlled island. Here Borodin, the tsar's spymaster, will be watching her.
On the island Katya and Jerry, an American adventurer, form an uneasy alliance. They discover the artefact will call down terror from the depths of space, yet Katya's superiors refuse to listen. But Katya and Jerry's worlds face extinction, so the artefact must be destroyed - at any cost. Two civilizations depend upon it.
Months before publication, One Second After has already been cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book already being discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at a weapon and its awesome power to destroy the entire United States, literally within one second. It is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. In the tradition of On the Beach, Fail Safe and Testament, this book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future...and our end.
