Enhanced by Courtney Farrell

Publisher: Fiction Foundry Press
Pages: 310


From the cover:

At the Institute, they breed people like livestock. One powerful doctor decides which children get to grow up, and which will die. Losers are dumped in the savage slum outside Institute walls. Those kids never come back. Sixteen-year-old Michelle is a perfect specimen, destined for a luxurious life as a breeder. When her brother and her boyfriend are both mysteriously culled from the breeding program, she jumps the wall to find them. Alone in the ghetto, she’s in trouble until handsome, streetwise Dillon stakes a claim to her. She’s mortified by her attraction to a Normal. But the doctor is using the missing boys in a twisted experiment, and she needs Dillon’s help to stop him. Michelle must rescue the boys, but a plague is spreading, the doctor is after her, and Dillon isn’t thrilled to help find her lost boyfriend.

Excerpt:

“The game is every man for himself,” Salomon announced. “Your objective is to be the first to push the large black button on the south wall of the gym. You will be timed. Certain, eh-hmm, difficulties may impede your progress. That is all. You may begin.”
Younger boys surged forward, but stopped when they saw that none of the older ones were rushing in. “Difficulties!” Brian reminded them, putting a hand on Nick’s chest to keep him from charging in there like an idiot. “That means a trap. There’s always a trap.”
“More than one, usually,” Seth added grimly. “These tests aren’t all physical, they test your problem-solving capacity too.”
The boys fidgeted uncertainly at the boundary, peering in but carefully staying outside the white painted line on the floor. The smallest ones looked sick with apprehension. Tests turned nasty once kids turned thirteen, and this would be their first hard one. Deaths during tests were rare, but they did happen, especially among the youngsters.
“Who wants to run in there and spring it for us?” Brian grinned. No one did. He bent to yank his shoes off, muttering to himself, “He had his off.” A few other kids followed suit.
“Where’s the big black button?” Nick demanded, hopping up and down to get a better look. “I don’t see it!”
“Neither do we.” Brian grabbed the wiry kid and hoisted him up for a better view. Nick grabbed a wad of Brian’s hair and nimbly stood up on the bigger boy’s shoulders. He hadn’t taken off his shoes.
“Ow, Nick, that hurts.”
“I see the button!” Nick shouted, leaning dangerously to one side to look between poles. “It’s way up high! Too high, and too far from the next pole.” The kid swayed and deftly hopped down before falling. “I don’t see how anyone’s going to reach it.”
The doctor touched a finger to his glowing bracelet and his platform rose, carrying him up and away. His high laugh echoed back from somewhere near the ceiling. “Bonus points to Nicholas Arnold, for being the first person to pose the right question. And the clock is ticking.”
“Go!” Guys in the back began to push. “We’re being timed!”
“Fine, go.” Brian stepped aside and let an eager eighteen-year-old shove his way in. The muscular black boy put one tennis shoe over the line and the green lights on his bracelet began to move in a swirling pattern around and around his wrist.
“Look!” The boy held up his arm.
“Dhorian, you’re on!” Seth bellowed. “Go!”
Dhorian hesitated for a moment, and then grabbed the line that hung off the nearest pole. He began to climb. Boys held their breath, leaning in to see what would happen. Nothing did. For a long moment everything was still, and then a shout came from above. “I made it! I’m up!”
A stampede began as boys surged across the line. Some became entangled in the foam bushes. Those turned out to be horribly sticky, and getting through them was nearly impossible. A few guys made it to poles and began to climb. Seth, Brian, and Todd waited behind the white line. “Let ‘em trigger it for us,” Todd breathed, but nothing happened.

Simultaneously, their three bracelets made warning beeps and the lights turned orange. “Aw, hell, we’re out of time!” Brian exclaimed, and waded into the foam forest with his friends. Behind them, the wall slid shut, leaving the room in sudden darkness.

The Thornless Rose by Morgan O'Neill



Title: The Thornless Rose

An Elizabethan Time Travel Novel

Author: Morgan O’Neill
Publisher: Entangled Publishing, LLC
Publication Date: December 29, 2014
Genre: Historical Fiction
Pages: 454
Blurb:

No one ever knew what really happened to Dr. Jonathan Brandon back in 1945. He simply disappeared from a London pub, leaving behind an unsolved mystery and his fiancée—Anne Howard’s grandmother. Seventy years later, Anne herself is haunted by the strange tale, along with inexplicable hallucinations straight out of Elizabethan England. Including a scarred, handsome man whose deep blue eyes seem to touch her very soul...

Anne wonders if there isn’t something more to the story. Is it even possible that Jonathan disappeared into England’s dark past? And why does Anne keep hearing him whisper her name? Because now she too feels the inexorable pull of the past, not to mention an undeniable attraction for a man she doesn’t even know.


It’s just a matter of time before Anne will step back into history, and face a destiny―and a love―beyond imagining...

My review:
Dr. Jonathan Brandon disappeared one day in 1945... vanished, never to be see again, leaving his fiancee Catherine behind. Years later, her granddaughter, Anne Howard starts experiencing mysterious tugs from the past. Though unbelieving at first, she begins to understand what might have happened to Jonathan Brandon and how he was forced to abandon all he knew... because Anne is afraid that same thing is happening to her.

Morgan O'Neill has redefined the genre of time travel with this fantastical adventure into the Elizabethan past, with all the ceremony of the time period, costuming brought to life... as well as the unsavory of the time. I very much enjoyed this tale! I can't wait for more from the writing duo of Deborah O'Neill Cordes and Cary Morgan Frates who become Morgan O'Neill. Highly recommend this book to all lovers of Historical Romance or anyone who is looking for a grand adventure wrapped up in the pages of a book. Excellent.



A chance meeting at a writers conference brought Cary Morgan Frates and Deborah ONeill Cordes together, two award-winning authors who connected because of a mutual love of time travel fiction. Collaboration ensued, the search for a pen name the first step in their working relationship. Their maiden names provided the solution - and Morgan ONeill was born. 

Cary and Deborahs backgrounds are uniquely suited to writing stories steeped in atmosphere and history: Deborah has a Masters Degree in history and is a dedicated genealogist; Cary is a talented linguist in French and is currently a student of Latin. Theyve traveled to Europes ancient and medieval sites many times, with Cary living on the Continent for five years. 

The Morgan ONeill time travel novels have received a number of literary awards, including two finalist wins in the Booksellers Best Awards, two semifinalist wins in the William Faulkner-William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition, first, second, and third place wins for the Mainstream Novel with Strong Romantic Elements category of the Golden Rose Contest, a top ten finalist award in the Pacific Northwest Writers' Conference Zola Awards Literary Contest, and a top ten finalist win in the Orange Rose Contest.
