Dinah Geof-Craigs, the metahuman known as Dynamistress, has made the big leagues, having joined The Gatekeepers, one of the most respected super-teams in the nation. She’s made the cover of Supers magazine, even being featured as “Super of the Month,” fulfilling a lifelong dream. She even has her own fan club! Her life is one of new adventures, new friends, and new loves.
But is she ready for any of it?
Weighing heavily is her guilt over her actions during “the Nevada Incident,” as the media refers to the revealed government Project Echo — a project that isn’t quite finished. Meanwhile, the Bay Area is struck by a deadly disease spread in an unbelievable fashion, and Dyna finds her own abilities standing in the way of a cure.
Throughout it all, she is faced with hostage situations, a meta who explodes uncontrollably, a mysterious stalker, and the question of whether she’s really doing the right thing.
About the Author
Vincent M. Wales is a novelist of speculative fiction, collector of odd jobs, usually less entertaining than what's on TV, and more fun than whooping cough. His 2004 novel, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, is not available on Smashwords, but can be obtained from his personal website. (In print; digital in PDF only for reasons that will become abundantly clear once you see it.)
For those who haven't heard of me, I won't hold it against you. I'm certainly not one of the bigger names out there. Yes, I had my fifteen minutes of fame thanks to Supers magazine back in 2008, but that was hardly enough to keep my name on everyone's lips. I was involved in the "Nevada Incident," too. Be impressed. Or don't. As some of you may know, I was not a natural born meta. My abilities were the result of deliberate genetic manipulation on my part. A real-life Jekyll & Hyde sort of deal, except that I didn't turn into a raving monster. I turned into a living dynamo. Which, in retrospect, maybe wasn't the best idea. There's a lot more to my story, of course, which is why there's a book series. Oh, and I live and work in San Francisco. Lovely place. You should visit.
