Overview

FACT: 15% of the world's population is Rh-negative and the origin of their blood is debated.

In a world with skyrocketing inflation and unemployment, blood has become the new commodity, and the rarer your blood type, the more it's worth.

After losing her job and watching her savings dwindle, Liri is persuaded by a resourceful friend to sell her blood to ABO Blood Group, where she learns she is O Negative, the most valuable and sought after blood.

Unable to afford living in New York City, Liri reluctantly decides to move back home and live with her parents, but her plan is interrupted when a virus is maliciously unleashed onto the island of Manhattan, resulting in a citywide quarantine. Before being able to devise an alternative plan, she is secretly informed of a covert mission by ABO to evacuate Negatives out of NYC. Although reluctant to trust them, it's her only viable choice to escape, but unbeknown to Liri, she and the Negatives are vital to activating opposing agendas on Earth and beyond.

About the Author

Violet St. Karl's love affair with science fiction and fantasy began at the tender age of four when she was introduced to the film Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, but it took nearly three decades and nudges from the universe to focus on writing.


While living on the Upper West Side of New York, she learned her apartment was the former site of Edgar Allen Poe's farmhouse, where he completed writing the Raven. Although an interesting fact to share, she shrugged it off as coincidence and was unconvinced to give writing and the stories in her head any attention. It wasn't until the following year that her mind changed, as she once again, without prior knowledge, found herself living in the former residence of a famous writer. After learning that not only the flat but the room she was sleeping in belonged to Mercè Rodoreda i Gurguí, a famous Catalan writer; Violet believed it was a bold attempt from the universe to push her to write because coincidence doesn't strike twice.


Upon publishing her first novel in her series, Collection of The Negatives, Violet St. Karl became the first Albanian-American science fiction and fantasy author, and after over a decade in New York, she recently returned to her roots in the Detroit area where is an advocate and proud Ambassador to the Authors Guild in New York.


When not writing or focused on strengthening the local literary community, she is planning which country, city or restaurant to explore next.
