The Rift, a catastrophic apocalyptic war, had ushered in an era of chaos and disarray in North America. The Western states were seceding from the greedy government in the Eastern states, trying to break free from its oppressive rule. The federal government, not ready to let go of the already scarce resources available, waged war on the seceding states, starting a civil war. Kara Svalynn, the governor of New Mexico, bound for Colorado to deliver nuclear launch keys to her ally governor, stumbles into a small community in Dulce, a forgotten desert town in New Mexico. She meets Ash, a product of Project Harmony, a genetic science experiment. Back in New Mexico, Kara’s second in command, Ela Argenta, is captured and tortured following a siege by Federal troops. While on the brink of death, she is forced to discover her true nature. Ela is an Atlantide, a half-breed of a human and a Pleiadian − an advanced civilization from a different star system. During the Rift, the spirit of Dagon, a powerful Nephilim hunter who had set out to destroy the Pleiades and Atlantides, had been trapped in a crystal. However, Dagon’s spirit had grown stronger over time and had broken free, ready to finish what he started. Will Ash and Ela be able to save the world from the looming disaster coming their way? Get yourself A. James’ Crystal of Tears, the first installment in the Seersinger Chronicles, to find out.
If you are looking for a gripping, character-driven, fast-paced, sci-fi novel laced with a compelling tale of survival, loyalty, betrayal, vengeance, deception, love, secrets, strategies, blackmail, war, blood, sacrifices, power tussles, drama, adventure, action, scientists, power-hungry bureaucrats, diabolic ancient forces, and powerful supernatural beings, among much more, A. James’ Crystals of Tears is a must-read for you. Weaving an intriguing plot, James features a vast, dynamic, and exciting cast. Effortlessly running a storyline of parallel timelines, James pays just enough attention to details not to bog down the pace of the plot. The colorful, evocative depictions had me feeling like I was right in the middle of all the action, helplessly watching every scene unfold. The reading experience felt like watching a Marvel Studios movie, complete with a touch of wit. I would love to see this on the big screen. The edge-of-the-seat suspense and the mind-blowing plot twists had me hooked and flipping from cover to cover. The author brings out the complex traits and emotions of the cast, allowing me to connect with them. Crystal of Tears is a terrific debut for the Seersinger Chronicles. I loved it. I can’t wait to lay my hands on the next installments.
