A world similar to our own is about to be invaded.

The Healer….

After a turbulent, yet privileged childhood, Army Captain Gracen Ellison has settled into a comfortable, 'by-the-book' routine of being trauma surgeon for the American Federation's Elite Medical Corps. But old troublemaking instincts die hard as she's about to break one of the Federation's time honored taboos: fraternization.

The Warrior…

Master Chief Petty Officer Jackson Monroe was one of the Federation Navy's most decorated Special Forces until one mission produced catastrophic results. After eighteen grueling months trying to get back to fighting form despite being less than whole, he realizes that the Navy isn't about to lead another SpecOps team in the field. He has two choices: become a desk jockey or retire.

The Others…

Two competing forces, human and alien, unexpectedly collide due to a helicopter crash, leaving Gracen and Jackson more than human and facing an enemy they didn't even know existed. A battle that will lead to world subjugation or the evolution of the human species.

Editorial Reviews

Tigger9 *
Water of Life was an awesome read. I loved the action and the stories. If you want an action-packed story with suspense thrown in then this is the book for you. It was written extremely well. Since the world was constructed so well, everything that happened felt like it was possible. It all made sense. The storyline flowed well throughout the story with no contradictions. With the new technology that was added in, I was never lost or confused. The characters were awesome and well written.

This charming debut e-novel from author Rhys Astason, offers readers an intriguing mix of genetics bending sci-fi and smoldering romance. Add to that a tablespoon of infectious, wry humor and you've got a truly enjoyable read. I had a lot of fun while reading Water of Life. The main characters are strong and likeable and the scientific roots of the plot set-up may surprise you. For a romance novel, Astason's first book presents readers with an intriguing core concept.
