Overview

Stripped from the headlines of today's news, Cimmerian City is a novel spanning 15 years.

Greed can turn a good man’s heart to stone. This is especially true in the age of commerce and large corporations. No new pill can be taken without a laundry list of side effects that the patient may have to endure. But what if the side effects are more dangerous than the pills are helpful? What if the side effect causes the patient to be immune from standard dangers, such as firearms, the climate, etc., but causes them to change into otherworldly beings?

It is seen through the eyes of a young woman named Raven Blackheart. It is a future where corporations rule the world and political parties have been dismissed. An Earth that is recovering from a global war that has divided two races: Humans and Dracins, quick, tough skinned creatures that are children of the side effects from 20th century pharmaceuticals. Raven awakens in this world as a product of both races and nurtured by the vice president of the main corporation in the world as a symbol of the union of races. With her help, Vice President Tyler Deamond’s corporation can take both beings off Earth--quickly becoming a waste planet--and to a new terraformed planet. But, as Raven learns, nothing is as it seems, especially concerning humans.

Editorial Reviews

Quality Book Reviews - Terry South
"...a high impact punch, a great plot that is fast paced and so intriguing that you cannot put this one down. Within the covers of this book you will discover a variety of crisis which is in the minds of everyone including global warming, war, violence, pollution, medical, pharmaceuticals
and economical issues.


...highly recommended read and a definite 5 star."
The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Alice Holman
"CIMMERIAN CITY by Rae [Lori] is very appropriate for a world where corporations and pharmaceutical companies seem to be pushing for control of governments and the world, for money...

As Raven Blackheart travels through Los Angeles, we can feel both sympathy and empathy for her plight. It seems she is in a no-win situation. It is also frightening because it is so close to home. CIMMERIAN CITY ends leaving a taste for more of this new world information."
Apex Reviews - Theresa Logan
"...a clever, engaging tale with all the trappings of a thriller at its finest."
Literary Pizzazz - Pam Osbey
"This sci-fi novel should be adapted by someone into a screenplay because the writing is so fresh and so intriguing that you will definitely want to know more about Raven, Russell, and Enos."
