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

Their eerie beauty comes from their perfect symmetry. Male, female, old, young…their faces are always absolutely symmetrical. 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 find 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 in late 2013.

What they’re saying:

“This is a fantasy of splendid proportions and the remaining two novels in this series not only have a lot to live up to but equally have a magnificent foundation from which to build on.”

There was only one rule: NEVER LEAVE THE DOME.
^
Inside the dome,  117 tube-born kids lived free of contamination. Trained since birth,  they were almost ready to launch their ships and leave the dying planet  behind. They were humanity’s final hope to avoid extinction. Their  mission would be to explore the farthest reaches of the galaxy seeking  out a habitable world free of the C-1 virus.
^
They tried not to  think of conditions outside the dome where the virus had driven the last of the uninfected into the ground, into dark bunkers where they waited  to be rooted out by cannibalistic hordes. Streets had become boneyards.  Weeds grew inside long-forgotten government buildings.
*
Fifteen-year-old Genevieve Fifthborn knew all this, she was fully aware that the world  was coming to an end, but on the island of The Eden Project she had much bigger problems, boy problems. Only her first love might risk far more  than a broken heart, it just might bring about the end of our species.

The light-hearted adventure of Leander, a young man on another world who dreams of being a treasure hunter. The world is painted from his view as he runs through the story; living in a country on the brink of war he continues to be optimistic and naive, but when his quest leads him to enemy territory he discovers it’s not what he expected.

What they’re saying about it:

“One of the strongest aspects of the novel is how vivid the main characters are. The give and take between Leander and Ellora early on has a perfect blend of mutual suspicion, humor as well as affection that I found immensely appealing.”
