About the Author


I'm 32 years old and live in the Scottish capital, Edinburgh.

As far back as I can remember, I've always enjoyed creative writing, especially within the horror genre.

During my last year at high school, a short story that I'd written became very popular to the extent that people were requesting a follow up and over the following year a total of five short story sequels were written to meet demand.

After those however, I just wrote as a hobby and only a few select people saw the final products.

In 2006, I turned my attention more fully to my writing and re-drafted two of my favourite stories into a book format.

What if pure evil was a dormant gene, carried within the DNA of all humankind? What if an extraterrestrial virus was wiping out humanity? And, what if the most powerful men in the world, more powerful than any government, had known about this virus for decades...? The recently widowed Catherine Thorn is being hunted, pursued by the man that killed her husband. She is being sought by a man she thought was dead. James Black, the man, is dead however, James Black, the monster, is very much alive. James Black did not have a mother or father. He was not born rather, he was created. He was considered a failed science experiment and was cast aside by his creator, Alan Hilter. Hilter had watched Black for years, seeing him turn from a productive member of society into a brutal killer, without remorse or conscience. Hilter has vowed to destroy what he created, but an immensely powerful, covert organisation has other plans. Damien Lee is the most powerful person in the United Kingdom, but only a select few know of his existence. He has been charged with the task of stopping the ¿Reaven¿ from wiping out the human race. The Reaven are the master race they have replaced humans at the top of the food chain. Once, they were human, but they have been infected by an ancient virus, which has altered their DNA, making them near-to-impossible to kill. They survive by drinking the blood of humans. The Reaven represent the most dangerous threat to man¿s existence that the world has ever seen. Who will succeed in their mission - James Black, Alan Hilter, Damien Lee, or the Reaven? Read Genocide to find out - the greatest war humankind has ever seen has only begun...! In Genocide, Adam Shiels has combined elements of science fiction and horror with superb results. Genocide delivers the remorseless, practicably-unstoppable killer, so often seen in ¿slasher flicks¿ and pulp literature, and gives him a new, clever perspective. Shiels also revisits the old horror stalwart of the vampire and gives this theme a totally original, modern twist. A horror writer¿s intention is always to shock currently, most writers in this genre do not succeed. This is because most readers have seen or read it all before thus, they have become inured to whatever depravity or violent act a writer can conjure up. However, Shiels takes acts of violence to a whole new level. The violence in Genocide is gruesome and extreme and strikes too close to the bone. Personally, I think he takes it a little too far, but I am sure others will revel in the macabre and disturbing events described in this novel. In short, Genocide is not for the faint of heart. This novel will torment your mind with its disturbing voice, and it will excite your imagination with its apocalyptic vision.

I couldn't get past the first few chapters. Poorly written.
